appear in court

& By CHESTER ROBARDS

MIAMI, Florida - Three of the
five Nassau Flight Services bag-
gage handlers arrested in Ft
Lauderdale in December pleaded
not guilty yesterday to charges of
importing 500 grams of cocaine
into the United States between
November 9 and 10, 2006.

Federal prosecutors, present-
ed Duty Magistrate, Judge
Andrea Simonton, with a super-
seding indictment, filed just one
day before yesterday's arraign-
ment, which also charged a fourth
man, Giovanni Munroe. who did
not appear in court, with impor-
tation of cocaine in concert with
the NFS baggage handlers.

Count one of the indictment,
which could carry a maximum
penalty of 40 years exclusive of
fines, restitution, parole terms or
forfeitures, charged the four men
with conspiracy to import cocaine
into the US. And count two,
which could carry the same penal-
ty as the first, charged the men
with the importation of cocaine
into the US,

Lester Bain, 29, Delvino Rigby,
26, and Marcus Rolle, 22, all went

before Judge Simonton of the US
District Court in downtown Mia-
mi in courtroom XI, located
directly opposite the courtroom in
which Samuel “Ninety” Knowles
made his second arraignment
appearance.

Judge Simonton read the two
counts of the indictment to the
accused, which stated that the
four men “did knowingly and
intentionally import into the Unit-
ed States, from a place outside
thereof, a controlled substance
~- it is further alleged that this
violation involved 500 grams or
more of a mixture and substance
containing a detectable amount
of cocaine.”

The three men’s attorneys, one
after the other, entered pleas of
not guilty, waived formal reading
of the indictment, asked for a tri-
al by jury and asked that standing
discovery orders be filed.

Judge Simonton entered the
pleas and agreed to the terms of
trial, reading of the indictments
and signing of the standing dis-
covery order. She then informed
the men that they would make

Man stabbed to death

A MAN was stabbed to death in Harbour Island yesterday
during an argument that police say may have stemmed from a

domestic dispute.

The victim is said to be from Eleuthera and in his late for-

ties. j

This latest tragedy raises the number of murders this year to
three. A.second man was also stabbed during the incident. He
is said to be in his mid-thirties and also from Eleuthera.

That man is expected to be airlifted to New Providence for
treatment. Two persons are reportedly being questioned by

Chief Justice breaks
his silence on

judicial controversy

CHIEF Justice Sir Bur-
ton Hall broke his silence
on the controversy over the
independence of the judi-
ciary yesterday, stating that
the concept is not to be
used by judges “to inflate
their sense. of self-impor-
tance”.

He said that the “rhetor-
ical excesses” on the sub-
ject that have entered -the
public domain over the last
few months have obscured
the fact that the ideal of
judicial independence
evolved “for the protection
of each member of soci-
ety”.

According to the chief
justice, “. .. except for in
the most primitive or total-
itarian societies, no one
seriously challenges the
basal notion that the judi-
cial officer —- whether a law
lord sitting in the Privy
Council or a lay magistrate
sitting in Mayaguana —
should render decisions
fairly and without being
improperly influenced by
any other person or agency
whether representing pub-
lic or private interests."

The majority rule story
‘must not be forgotten’

THE story of how majority rule
came about is one that should be
known and must not be forgot-

ten, Minister of Foreign Affairs:

Fred Mitchell told Rotarians yes-
terday.

"This isan important date in
the history of our country. It was
the first time that all Bahamians
of full age, then 21, and without
any requirement for property or
tenancy, could vote to elect their
government. That vote took place
on LOth January 1967," Mr
Mitchell said.

“The story of this day and how
we came to be here should be
told, should be known. It was not

easy and must not be forgotten.
But it is still only part of a con-
tinuing story of our march toward

development as a people. There

is more to come.

“The story will be enhanced
and grow larger than life if those
who come behind us embrace the
struggle of those who went before
us,” Minister Mitchell said.

Majority. rule meant that “the
African majority were able to
assert their humanity and their
right to lead the country.

sovereignty in the matter of the US arrest of five
baggage handlers, Minister of Foreign Affairs Fred
Mitchell yesterday called all such statements “out-

File on D

death to be forwarded
magistrate

to chief

@ By ALISON LOWE
Tribune Staff Reporter

THE police file on the inves-
tigation into the death of 20-

year-old Daniel Smith, son of

US celebrity Anna Nicole Smith
will soon be in the hands of
Chief Magistrate Roger Gomez,
it was revealed yesterday.

Attorney General Allyson
Maynard-Gibson said the file
has been sent by her office to
the police, “to be forwarded to
the chief magistrate who has to
decide if there will be an
inquest.”

Mrs Maynard-Gibson made
this statement following a
request for an update on the
status of the investigation into
Daniel Smith’s sudden death in
a Doctors' Hospital room in the
early hours of September 9,
2006.

His death was determined by
US pathologist Dr Cyril Wecht
to have been caused by the
effects of a “lethal cocktail” of
prescription drugs, including
methadone, a heroin substitute.

Several weeks ago, The Tri-
bune was informed by Assistant
Commissioner of Police Regi-
nald Ferguson that it was the
Office of the Attorney General
— rather than Chief Magistrate
Gomez — that would make the
final decision on the question
of whether there would be an
inquest into Smith's death.

Queried last month as to
what the status of the case was,
Mrs Maynard-Gibson first said
that she was “waiting for
advice” on the matter from
someone in her office.

When asked again for an
update, she said “the matter of
the investigation is not com-
plete.”

The Tribune was previously
informed by police that they
had finished with the investiga-
tion and had forwarded the file.

group calling themselves "The

Mob" began an online petition
calling on the Bahamas govern-
ment to set a date for an
inquest.

According to a leading jurist,
in cases of "sudden death" such
as Daniel Smith's, in which no
one is criminally charged, hold-
ing an inquest is a “matter of
policy and procedure.”

The jurist said it is protocol
that a jury decide whether the
death of any individual who dies
under unnatural circumstances
was "an accident, a suicide or
a case of misadventure."

Speaking more than a month
ago, the jurist added that time
was “running out” for such a
judgment to be made on the
death of Smith, as the courts
were due to close on Decem-
ber 15 of last year.

As more time passes, the
jurist said, it becomes more like-
ly that evidence will be lost.

In September 2006, an Octo-
ber 23 date was set for the
inquest to be held by former
head coroner Linda Virgill.

However, Chief Magistrate
Gomez declared that Ms Vir-
gill had acted “prematurely” in

setting such a date, and had
failed to follow procedure.

Ms Virgill was reassigned
shortly after, and in an unex-
pected move, Chief Justice Bur-
ton Hall disbanded the sole
coroner's court — reverting to a
system by which all 13 magis-
trates can act as coroners — after
it was claimed that a large num-
ber of complaints were received
from members of the public
who have been waiting for years
for inquests into their loved
one's deaths. *

Shortly after Smith’s death,
Dr Wecht pronounced that he
had three drugs — anti-depres-
sants Zoloft and Lexapro, along
with methadone — in his body
when he died.

These drugs were said to have
combined in Daniel's system,
eventually having a devastating
suppressive effect on his heart.

Dr Wecht later revealed that
other drugs — another anti-
depressant, Amitriptyline, as
well as two over-the-counter
cold medicines, and one "mild"
over-the-counter sedative -
were also in Smith’s system but
played no part in his death.

dispute is
‘filed with ministry

over Baha Mar

lm By ALEXANDRIO
MORLEY
Tribune Staff Reporter

A TRADE dispute between
the Baha Mar Development
Company and the Bahamas
Hotel Managerial Association
has been officially filed at the
Ministry of Immigration,
Labour and Training, The Tri-
bune has learned.

The Tribune received a
stamped copy of the trade dis-
pute report yesterday after-
noon.

The document reads: “Notice
is hereby given that you: Baha
Mar Development Company
and Bahamas Hotel Manageri-
al Association are required to
attend a conciliation meeting

:- 10am in the morning of January

12, 2007, Conference Room,
Department of Labour,
Clarence A Bain Building, New
Providence, Bahamas.”

On December 19, 2006, Mr
Obie Ferguson, president of
BHMaA, threatened the Baha
Mar group with possible indus-
trial action if it refused to pay
managers and supervisors the
Christmas bonus he claimed
was owed to them. However,

: Baha Mar’s vice president of

administration and external
affairs, Robert "Sandy" Sands,

: insisted that the workers were

not owed any additional money.

Mr Ferguson said the associ-
ation, the executives of Baha
Mar and the labour minister
were scheduled to meet to dis-
cuss the matter. However, he
claimed, the executives of Baha
Mar failed to attend the meeting.

Mr Ferguson claimed that on
September 25, 1996 a contractu-
al agreement was signed and in





that agreement one of the provi-
sions was that each worker rep-
resented by the bargaining unit
would be entitled to two weeks’
pay as a Christmas bonus.

The trade union president
said that Baha Mar’s CEO
Don Robinson and Mr Sands
are obligated to honour the
industrial agreement.

Mr Ferguson also accused
Baha Mar executives of trying
to provoke the workers into
industrial action.

"On December 14, 2006 they
unilaterally reduced the con-
tractual two weeks bonus of
each worker to one week. That
must be evidence of provoca-
tion," Mr Ferguson said.

Mr Ferguson said that clause
13.6 of the industrial agreement
states that any employee enjoy-
ing better conditions than those
contained in the agreement
shall continue to enjoy the
same wherever those conditions
exists by contract between the
Hotel Corporation and the
employees. (In 2003, the Hotel
Corporation still owned the
Radisson Resort, which is now

® BAHA Mar - an artist’s impression

owned by Baha Mar).

However, Mr Sands con-
tended that clause 22.1 of the
agreement overpowers that
clause.

Clause 22.1 states that it is
mutually agreed that the
employees covered by the
agreement will receive two
weeks pay as a Christmas
bonus to be paid no later than
the second pay period in
December provided that the
hotel is reflecting a gross oper-
ating profit in that year.

"The management team at
the Radisson is not entitled to
an automatic bonus,” said Mr
Sands.

The Industrial Relations Act
requires the Minister of Labour
to attempt to settle trade dis-
putes by means of conciliation,
but the act also requires the
minister to refer the matter to
the Industrial Tribunal if the
parties are unable to secure a
settlement after a specific peri-
od of time has passed.

A refusal to attend the meet-
ing could result in a fine not
exceeding $5,000.

Toddler’s family seeks
manslaughter

A FAMILY whose son was
killed by a speedboat in the
Bahamas wants police to
charge the. driver with
manslaughter after drugs were
allegedly found in his body,
according to the British news
service Kentnews.

The two-year-old boy, who
was struck by the vessel as he
slept near his mother on a Par-
adise Island beach, died five
days later in hospital.

Over the weekend, it was
alleged that the driver of the
boat that killed Paul Gallagher
was using marijuana.

Paul died five days after the
accident from head injuries,
described by surgeons as the
worst they had ever seen.

His father Paul, 42, and
mother Andrea, 40, from Orp-
ington, Kent, hit out at the
Bahamas government for fail-
ing to prosecute whoever might
have been responsible for their

son's death.

Two Metropolitan Police
officers flew to the Bahamas
last summer to review the case
with local police.

Their report reveals that
after the crash, the driver pro-
vided blood and urine samples.
The Gallaghers were told these
were never tested at the time.

When the samples were test-
ed by the British team, they
showed that the driver’s blood
contained 5.1 nanograms of
carboxy-tetrahydrocannabinol
(THC), an active ingredient in
marijuana plants.

‘The Bahamian police claim
that while this indicated the
driver had been using cannabis,
it did not mean that his ability
to drive or control the boat was
impaired.

However, the new report
warns that the samples may
have deteriorated since 2002
because of the way they were

charge

stored and the readings may
have been higher at the time
they were taken.

So far the driver has escaped
any serious prosecution fol-
lowing the death of little Paul
from Orpington, who was
enjoying a holiday with his par-
ents four years ago.

Paul’s family want the dri-
ver tried for at least the
manslaughter of their young
son, who was hit by the boat
as he lay sleeping on a sunbed.

It was claimed the powerful
speedboat was out of control
at the time.

The young boy’s father, also
called Paul, 42, and mother
Andrea, 40, say they are furi-
ous the police have not pressed
charges following the tests.

"We are devastated. We
want the investigation to be re-
opened and will not stop” until
there is justice.

Fallout from PLP’s poor decisions:

IN ASSESSING the achievements and social
setbacks 40 years after majority rule, a young
leader of the Bahamas’ newest political party
blamed today’s social disintegration on the
PLP government’s decision to turn a blind eye
to the scourge of drugs.

Ata PLP convention 23 years after leading
the country into majority rule on January 10,
1967, Sir Lynden admitted that he got it wrong.
He complained bitterly about Bahamian atti-
tudes — particularly among Bahamian men.

“We told them that they were too good to be
gardeners, too good to be sanitation men, too
good to work with their hands,” he said.

It was Sir Lynden himself who equated suc-
cess with being a millionaire. In those days
becoming a millionaire by the shortest route
possible was the goal of many Bahamian youth.

“IT wish to say this,” Sir Lynden told
Bahamians, highlighting farmers, cab drivers,
waiters and maids, in a televised New Year's
day message, “all that my streamlined cabinet
can do is to provide the million dollar oppor-
tunity, only you can make you a millionaire. If
you choose not to take advantage of the oppor-
tunities provided and get distracted by the
noise in the market, it will be nobody" s fault
but yours.’

At the October 31, 1990 PLP convention he
told party members that he had an admission
to make

“As a great grandson of a slave I told many
of my brothers many of those things myself
(that they would no longer be “hewers of wood
and drawers of water”). At that time I was
trying to elevate their goal. I wanted to spare
them some pain and some suffering. But, I
didn’t know then what I know now, that any
work breeds character. Too many young men
lack character today, too many. too often shirk
responsibility because they have never been
held accountable for their actions at home, in
school or in society. Therein may he the heart
of the problem.”

Sir Lynden said he thought that “indepen-
dence and self-determination would help cre-
ate an environment where a new generation of
young men would emerge brimming with self
confidence and ready to take their place in
this new and more equitable society we were
creating.

“T had hoped,” he continued, “that the
effects of that inhumane legacy would have
been readily alleviated and everyone would
have been able to rise as high as their skills and
motivations could take them.

“But, regrettably, as we enter the 1990s, this
great hope remains unrealised,” he said.

The commission of inquiry into drugs had

just concluded. Bahamians had to face the fact
that they had been riding high on narco-dollars
and during this soul-destroying period had lost
their sense of values.

It was Arthur Hanna — now governor-gen-
eral, then deputy prime minister — who fully
understood that the country and its people
were lost if an example were not set by its
leaders after the damning drug smuggling
report.

He said he urged Sir Lynden to join him in
resigning his post after the commission report
and the two of them assist the PLP in choosing
new leadership.

“We cannot and must not allow all that we
have worked for, stood for and achieved to
go down the drain through and by the selfish
acts of a small clique who operate for their
own ends at the expense of us and our coun-
try,” Mr Hanna told the PLP’s 30th national
convention.

He said that they had to come to grips with
the effects of the evidence of the 1983 Com-
mission of Inquiry into drug trafficking and
related corruption on “the unity and solidari-
ty of this organisation.”

He said that a leader or deputy leader “must
have the unqualified confidence of almost all of
his colleagues.” It was for this reason, he said,
that under the circumstances he felt that he and
Sir Lynden should resign. Mr Hanna resigned.
Sir Lynden decided to brazen it through. The
Commission report exposed wrongdoing. Soci-
ety suffered because, although there was much
wrong; there was no punishment. No exam-
ples were set.

“This party,” said Mr Hanna, “must at some
stage demand that Bahamians be redeemed
from political dishonesty and corruption,
redeemed from lawlessness, neglect, unem-
ployment, hopelessness, despair and criminal-
ity.

“We who are in the PLP have an awesome
responsibility to ensure that our movement is
not sacrificed upon the altar of selfishness,
greed, arrogance and the mistaken belief that,
right or wrong, the Bahamian people will stick
with and continue to support us.”

Redemption never came, and today society
suffers the fall-out.

George Smith, who was one of those hum-
bled in the Commission report, has been crit-
icised for his comments this week on the
motives of some PLP MP’s in seeking high
office.

Mr Smith knows whereof he speaks. It would
do well for the PLP to take his advice and be
more selective in their candidates for this elec-
tion.

FNM and Ingraham
have to accept the
blame for Royal Oasis’

EDITOR, The Tribune.

I WAS amazed that the
leader of the FNM had
now tried to place the
blame that the Royal Oasis
Hotel and Casino debacle
was the blame of bad
administration of the pre-
sent Christie government.

Mr Ingraham has a very,
very short memory for
starters what experience
did Driftwood Hotels have
in operating such a hotel?
What experience did Drift-
wood have in operating a
casino?

Was the closure of Royal
Oasis directly connected to
when the late Sir Freddie
Laker stopped his gam-
bling junkets to Royal
Oasis, allegedly because
Royal Oasis owed him
money?

beach — is in the middle
of nowhere and no one
seems to understand this.
All around the hotel was
run down for years.

I do agree that the Casi-
no licence should have
been taken a long time ago
as Lehmann Bros should
not be permitted to specu-
late or get an advantage
because there is a valid
casino licence on the hotel
in this case because so
many in Freeport are still
owed by Driftwood and
ultimately Lehmann Bros.

Sad, but it is true, if

Edward St George were
‘alive this mess would never

have happened — one or

two telephone calls to his
contacts in New York and
bush crack someone with
the money would have
acquired this property
although let’s be honest,
the hotel is just in the
wrong location.

The FNM under Rt Hon
Hubert Ingraham have to
accept the blame for the
Royal Oasis as it was under
their administration that
Driftwood came to own it
and now just a few years
later all three of their
Bahamas hotels have been
sold-off and Driftwood is
no longer in The Bahamas
— surely that says a lot and
confirms why the FNM and
Mr Ingraham are to blame.

National lottery
should be
debated by govt

EDITOR, The Tribune.

THE Government of the Bahamas
should be debating the idea of imple-
menting a national lottery in the Bahamas.
75 per cent of the Bahamian people are
ready to support a NHI lottery regulated
by the government.

From these lotteries the government will
receive all of the funds it needs to manage
the Bahamas’ health care and education,
etc.

We don’t need to do any major research.
It’s at work now in The Bahamas and
working well.

Most countries have an NHI lottery.
South Florida has one and every state in
America has one.

And it isn’t compulsory that one has to
play.

By implementing a national lottery the
Government will also be stamping out
crime. As we all know, crime is a very
serious matter.

I believe if a lottery were put in place

those Bahamian workers who have pri-
vate health insurance should be allowed to
continued with them.

For those who cannot afford to pay for
their own health care the Government
would then pay for their care from monies
collected from the NHI lottery which will
lessen the burden placed upon our gov-
ernment.

Now I understand the churches in The
Bahamas don’t want the government to
implement these lotteries which are being
run by private groups.

I feel that all God-fearing Bahamians
should support the government if it
decides one day to implement a lottery in
The Bahamas. This is another alternative
that the Bahamian people of all ages
understand.

oO ln brief

message.
to his
constituents

MINISTER of Works and
Utilities Bradley Roberts
gave a heart-felt address
about his constituents dur-
ing yesterday’s sitting of the
House of Assembly.

Mr Roberts began by
wishing all MPs a happy new
year, and encouraged his
constituents in Bain Town
and Grant’s Town to stick
with him — noting the forth-
coming next general election.

“J rise with the greatest joy
and in deepest humility on
behalf of the people of Bain
and Grant’s town whom for
decades now have sent me
here to represent their needs,
their hopes, dreams and aspi-
rations.

“They have elected me
also to lead, sometimes hav-
ing to come out from among
them and having to stand
upon their shoulders in
hopes of seeing the way for-
ward so that I may lead them
to higher heights.

“As in any relationship
worth having, the journey
together has not always been
smooth but through good
times and bad, in happy
times and sad, in season and
out of season, Mr Speaker I
and my constituents have
always emerged in the sere-
nade of that song by Al
Green, “Let’s stay together,
loving you whether, times
are good or bad happy or
sad”. Yes we ought to stay
together,” he said.

During his communication
on the 40th anniversary of

Majority Rule Day, Minister .

of Works Bradley Roberts
reminded parliament of the
peaceful manner in which
freedom and equality was
achieved in the Bahamas.

“Tt is described as the qui-
et revolution, specifically
because in the 20 years lead-
ing up to the 1967, very little
blood had been shed in pur-
suit of justice and equality.
No Mr Speaker, in this coun-
try. which historically has not
known much of violence,
what others fought wars
over, and some got assassi-
nated for, we achieved with a
stroke on a ballot. I often say
Mr Speaker in the words of
men before me that our bal-
lots were our bullets.

“This example of civility
entrenched in Bahamian cul-
tue is one I wish we could
somehow impress upon
younger generations, that in
times gone by, even when
being denied fundamental
rights and freedoms, Mr
Speaker, we were men and
women of stellar worth, of
sterling character who raised
our voices and our hearts but
never our fists. Because, we
are a peculiar people by
nature, Mr Speaker, a peace-
ful people,” he said.

Mr Roberts expressed how
sorry he is that “in our not
adequately passing on the
lessons of our glorious past,
we have also to date failed
in educating some of our
sons and daughters on the
fact that being Bahamian
means more than conch sal-
ad and peas and rice, and
even junkanoo but it means
that we are of a tradition of
community mindedness,
peaceful coexistence, and
brotherly and sisterly love.”

TWO armed robbers got
away with almost $900 after
holding up a supermarket on
Tuesday night.

Making a clean getaway, the
perpetrators fled the scene ina
black Nissan Sentra, according
to police press liaison officer
Walter Evans.

Just after 7pm, the two
unidentified men entered Super
Value on Baliou Road and
Poinciana Avenue.

Christopher Charlton, the
store manager, who was on duty
at the time of the robbery,
described what happened.

He said operations were
going on as normal when a man
came in with a black jacket
pulled up to his eyes and shout-
ed, “Nobody move!”

The jacket was covering his
face and only his eyes were vis-
ible, the manager explained.

In response to the outburst,
some persons laughed. “We
took it as a joke,” Mr Charlton
said.

However moments later,
when the other robber entered,
the customers and staff realised
that it was no laughing matter.

“Two seconds later, this oth-
er guy came in there with a
black handgun and a black ski
mask covering his face. They
did what they had to do and
they left,” he said.

Emptying the two cash reg-
isters that were open at the
time, the men got away with
$859, according to Mr Charl-
ton.

One person was dressed in a
black jacket and the other had
on a camouflage jacket, Inspec-
tor Evans reported.

After the robbery, the two

Super Value customers stunned
as masked men empty register



men fled in a heavily tinted
vehicle and travelled east on
Poinciana Avenue.

When asked about the reac-
tion of the customers and staff
to the robbery, Mr Charlton
said the incident happened so
quickly that no one had time to
move.

“Only a few customers were
in the store and everyone just
was quiet. The robbery did not
last long .. . it took about eight
to 10 seconds and it was fin-
ished. So it didn’t really hit any-
one until after the guys left,”
he said.

After the robbery, the man-
agement immediately closed the
store and contacted the police.

Customers who were already
in the store were allowed to
purchase their items but other
potential customers were barred
from entering, the manager
said.

Mr Charlton, who was very
happy with the speedy response
to his emergency call, said: “As
soon as I radioed that we need-
ed police, in about two minutes
they were here.”

The police were so punctual
that the manager said he is not
very concerned about future
robberies.

However, he did say that
tighter security measures will
be implemented to dissuade
anyone else from trying to rob
the store in future andito pro-
tect the staff and customers.

The proposal for the
Covenant was made as part of
the Windsor Report, produced
by the Lambeth Commission.

Archbishop Gomez said the
reason for the Covenant was to
suggest a way in which the
member churches in the Angli-
can Communion could meet as
members of the worldwide
Communion and agree to “be
committed one to the other and
held accountable one to the oth-
er.”

Dr Williams appointed the
special Covenant group to meet
and submit some suggestions as
to what a Covenant would look
like to be presented to the
worldwide Anglican Commu-
nion for adoption.

The committee will meet in
Nassau from January 15 to 19.

"What we hope to do," said
Archbishop Gomez “‘is to start
work on a formula which we
would share with the Archbish-
ops of the Communion at the
Archbishops’ meeting, which
will be held in Tanzania in the
middle of February.

“Hopefully, we would have
something to present to the
Lambeth Conference in the

Bahamas in Prophesy’s apocalyptic

A SMALL civic group is con-

erecta monument at the site of
the Southern Recreation
Ground to celebrate the “strug-
ele and victory” of Black
Rahamians over oppression.

posed monument.

Roberts said that the memorial
would take the form of some-
thing “inanimate, like an
obelisk, in recognition of the
very central place that the
Southern Recreation Ground
has played throughout its 170-
year history in the struggle of
the masses of Bahamians to
free themselves; the monument
will be a memorial to all free-
dom fighters, named and
unnamed.”

According to BIP: “We
absolutely condemn this type
of monument because the origin
of this monument is not of the
Almighty God.”

“This monument was origi-
nated in the land of Egypt and
was and still is considered the
chief pillar of Idol worship in

believed that the Sun God Ra

Bahamas
says no to

CARICOM
cricket visa

THE Bahamas government
is saying no to a Special Visa
arrangement as CARICOM
countries prepare for the ICC
Cricket World Cup.

The CARICOM Special
Visa, which will be enforced
from February 1 to May 15,
2007, is being implemented to
ensure ease of travel within the
region for all visitors.

Leonard Archer, the
Bahamas’ high commissioner to
CARICOM, says the visa
arrangement does not apply to
the Bahamas

“The countries who are host-
ing cricket matches agreed to
issue one visa which would
apply to all of the countries who
are hosting games,” Archer
explained.

He emphasised that the
Bahamas did not choose to be a
part of the plan.

The special visa arrangements
will apply to all visitors for any
purpose to any of 10 CARI-
COM countries.

Nationals of all countries
except for Canada, France, Ger-
many, Japan, Ireland, Italy,

_ South Africa, Spain, the Nether-

" lands, the United Kingdom and
dependent territories, United
States and dependent territo-
ries, and nationals and residents
of CARICOM member states

Hugo Chavez
starts new

six-year term
in Venezuela-

@ VENEZUELA
Caracas

INVOKING Christ and Cas-
tro as his socialist models, Pres-
ident Hugo Chavez began his
third term Wednesday by
declaring that socialism, not
capitalism, is the only way for-
ward for Venezuela and the
world, according to Associated
Press.

His first stop: Nicaragua,
where leftist ally Daniel Ortega
was returning to power with his
own inauguration hours later.
Chavez is now set to remain
president until 2013 — or later if
he gets his way with a constitu-
tional amendment allowing him
to run again.

At the apex of a resurgent
Latin American left, Chavez has
been emboldened to make
more radical changes at home
after winning re-election with
63 per cent of the vote, his
widest margin ever.

His next moves include
nationalising electrical and
telecommunications companies,
forming a commission to over-
see constitutional reforms and
asking the National Assembly,
now entirely controlled by his
supporters, to allow him to
enact “revolutionary laws” by
presidential decree.

His right hand raised
Wednesday, Chavez declared
in words reminiscent of Fidel
Castro’s famous call-to-arms:
“Fatherland, socialism or death
— I swear it.” He also alluded
to Jesus: “I swear by Christ —

the greatest socialist in histo-

ry.”
In a speech, he said the cen-
tral aim of his term will be “to
build Venezuelan socialism.”

“T don’t have the slightest
doubt that is the only path to
the redemption of our peoples,
the salvation of our fatherland,”
Chavez told lawmakers to
applause.

Chavez’s re-election capped a
series of Latin American presi-
dential votes, and his closest
ideological allies were all gath-
ering Wednesday in Managua.
Also on Ortega’s guest list were
Ecuador’s Rafael Correa and
Bolivia’s Evo Morales. Acting
Cuban leader Raul Castro sent
a high-level delegation.

Chavez said a commission
was being assembled to consid-
er constitutional reforms to be
decided in a popular consulta-
tion, including one allowing
“indefinite re-election” by doing

away with presidential term lim-

its that bar him from running
again in 2012.

“The important thing is that
the people will make the deci-
sion, because nothing can be
done without that here,”
Chavez said, dismissing criti-
cism that he is becoming
authoritarian or trying to
change Venezuela into some-
thing like Castro’s Cuba.

The future looks bright for
the Bahamian economy
according to Prime Minister
Perry Christie.

Speaking at the Bahamas
Business Outlook annual sem-
inar this week, he said this
view is based on the fact that
the International Monetary
Fund projected that growth
will continue to accelerate —
reaching 6.5 per cent for the
fiscal year 2006/07 and 6.7 per
cent for 2007/08.

Moreover, he said, the Cen-
tral Bank reported that the
Bahamian economy has
“maintained positive momen-
tum supported by strong con-
sumer demand which stimu-
lated robust growth in private
sector credit and sustained the
expansion in construction
activity.”

Mr Christie linked the good
news to success in attracting
investment projects in almost
every Family Island.

“This positive growth has
also arisen from careful stew-
ardship of this economic
expansion the likes of which
are without precedent,” he
said. “This projected volume
of inward investment is at least
$8 billion over the next few
years.”

The Business Outlook was
held under the theme: ‘Oppor-
tunities, Plans and Anticipated
Outcomes’ which the prime
minister referred to as both
appropriate and timely.

“It is appropriate in the

sense that 2007 represents a
watershed year both political-
ly and economically for the
Bahamas. It is timely because
this forum comes at the begin-
ning of the year,” he said.

Mr Christie reflected on
2006, which he dubbed “an
economically banner year for
the Bahamas”.

Over the past four years, the
government noted in a release
yesterday, more than 430 for-
eign investment projects were
submitted to the minister of
Financial Services and Invest-
ments. Of that number it said,
53 projects with a total com-
bined value of $13 billion are
under varying states of con-
struction

NHI planners soon to
announce strategy

THE planners of the Nation-
al Health Insurance scheme say
a “strategic plan” will be
announced in a matter of days
as preparations begin for regu-
lations to accompany the legis-
lation passed last month.

The Act establishing NHI
was unanimously passed in the
Senate on December 20, 2006.

National Health Insurance
implementation project man-
ager, Stanley Lalta, confirmed
that “we have a strategic plan
which we are going to be
rolling out.”

This, he said, will include
consultations with doctors and
other healthcare providers in
devising a comprehensive
package on payments and
management of the scheme.

Mr Lalta said that with
regards to the necessary regu-
lations to accompany the act,
legal professionals will have
to be consulted on drafting
procedures.

“And, of course, while all of
that is being done, there is oth-
er work that the director and I

will have to do because we want
to put an information technol-
ogy system in place, and then
we need to register people.”

He noted that the act facili-
tates much of the work that
the implementation project
seeks to do.

“We have a strategic plan
which we are going to be
rolling out over the next few
months and all of these activ-
ities will be a part of that
plan,” he said. “So we are giv-
ing ourselves a six-month cut-
off time to get all of these
things in order.”

Mr Lalta said he is pleased
that the NHI bill was passed in
Parliament.

“I think it is very helpful
that we have the bill because
the bill sets the tone estab-
lishing the seriousness of the
government to act,” he said.

“Now that it is on the books,
it provides an agency to every-
one to put the system in place
and to know that they have to
interact. I think it is very essen-
tial that we have the act.”

“Our challenge is to get resi-
dents of this island to accept the
responsibility to protect our rep-
utation, our security and our
stability,” the prime minister
said, referring to New Provi-
dence.

W HAT would ordi-
narily be a good

economy for Grand Bahama?
Put differently, if Grand
Bahama’s economy was good,
what would be its characteristic
features? The answer is that
there would be:

e Falling unemployment and
low unemployment, say seven
per cent or lower, resulting from
robust job creation;

e Steady personal and house-
hold income growth arising
from profitable business opera-
tions;

e High hotel occupancy rates,
especially during the peak sea-
son, of more than 80 per cent
coupled with par or above par

_ room rates;

¢ Reasonable inward foreign
direct investment within the
hotel and industrial sectors of
the economy;

e An expanding domestic
business sector in response to
strong international and local
consumer demand that is itself
resulting from reasonable lev-
els of disposable income;

e A robust construction sec-
tor fuelled by both domestic
and commercial construction
representing a combination of
both good access to credit as
well as strong savings;

e A contained rising cost of
living; and

e Contained interest rates
that fuel reasonable levels of
consumer and commercial bor-
rowing.

|: this Grand Bahama’s sit-
uation today? It is not.
What is now and has been hap-
pening are the following:

¢ Unemployment, according
to the Department of Statistics,
after rising for the last several
years from 6.4 per cent in 2002
to 11 per cent in 2005, has only
this year dropped to 8.4 per cent
but for all the wrong reasons.
Unemployment is lower
because there are more “dis-
couraged workers” and work-
ers who have had to leave the
island in search of jobs else-
where.

The reality is that there are
some 70 per cent more persons
unemployed today than there
were four years ago (1,610 to
2,300);

e Personal and household
income is stagnant, at least
according the latest numbers
available; in 2003 the median
household income was $30,354,
in 2004 it was $30,820, an
increase of 1.5 per cent. Inter-
estingly, the mean household
income in that period decreased
by 3.8 per cent and inflation
averaged about two per cent;

e Hotel occupancy rates have
been up and down but in the
most recent times have been
exceptionally low, below 30 per
cent. Of course we add to this
the fact that we have lost the
Royal Oasis altogether for the
past two years and we know
that the picture in the hotel sec-

There’s practical and then there's
Good - looking and practical.

e Construction is mainly
being fuelled by discounted res-

2002, according to the latest

it was $84.4 million, a seven per

2004 figure was lower than the
figure of 2003 by 2.4 per cent.

The value of commercial con-
struction permits declined from
$50.9 million in 2002 to $33 mil-
lion in 2004, a decrease of some
35 per cent. Interestingly
enough, the value of commer-

e The cost of living is rising

e Interest rates are now rising

\ \ | hat accounts for this
state of affairs in

Grand Bahama’s economy? I
believe a combination of things,
including:

1) A less than optimal work-
ing relationship between the
Grand Bahama Port Authority
and the government of the day;

2) A hijacking of the devel-
opment mindset anticipated by
the Hawksbill Creek Agree-
ment;

3) A less than dynamic
tourism product and a flawed

promotional policy;

4) The consequences of hur-
ricanes Jeanne and Frances; and

5) Too little global outreach
by businesses within this juris-
diction.

What is to be done about
Grand Bahama’s situation? We

‘must stop thinking how we have

been thinking and stop doing
what we have been doing. We
must:

1) Move the government out
of the approval process of the
GBPA, except in clearly
defined areas, respecting the
tenets of the Hawksbill Creek
Agreement;

2) The principals of the Port
must adopt a development
mindset that places their
prospects for profits on the suc-

cess of the body of its licensees”

as opposed to its ability to
extract profits from the essential
services it provides to them;

3) Make entertainment and
attractions the central theme of
our tourism development focus
going forward and promote
now the jurisdiction in a more
robust way;

4) Better shield ourselves
from the consequences of nat-
ural disasters; and

5) Develop strategic alliances
with business interests outside
of The Bahamas both for selling
to and buying from.

Despite all, I am optimistic
about Grand Bahama’s future. I
believe that change will come
and when it does it will be for
the better of this island.

THE PRIME MINISTER’S

ANCHOR PROJECTS
ILLUSION

W hat the Prime Min-
ister calls his gov-

*

Pe ee NAG

ernment’s “anchor projects pol-
icy” is a farce. It lacks the vision,
strategy and evaluative credi-
bility. The fact is that it is really
the political adoption of a lazy
leader who rides behind a curve.

Large tourism developments
heavily influencing the eco-
nomic fortunes of islands of The
Bahamas have been our devel-
opment model for some 60-plus
years.

Just because no-one decided
to put a term to it like “anchor
development policy” does not
mean that it was not just that. In
fact, no other leader would have
put the term to it because they
would not have wanted to
define themselves in such an
unenlightened fashion.

At a time when Bahamians
crave diversification of the
economy to buffer themselves
from the external shocks often
attendant to a single engine
economy, an enlightened per-
son would not be placing the
economic stability and fortunes
of any island on a single mega,
more often than not, tourism
project.

That is precisely what PM
Christie is doing and is precise-
ly the reason why his anchor
development policy is vision-
less.

The truth is that Mr Christie’s
so-called anchor development
policy is an accident of history.
PM Christie and his govern-
ment have done nothing to
attract new investments to The
Bahamas. What new policy
have they promulgated? What
new investment law have they
passed? What investment pro-
motion missions have they
mounted?

Who in the government went
out and approached any
investor not interested in invest-
ing in The Bahamas and con-
vinced them to come here? The
vast majority of investors
approved over the last four
years were looking at The
Bahamas in the time of Ingra-
ham and the accident of an elec-
tion caused them to have to
deal with the Christie adminis-
tration. They were looking at
The Bahamas because the enor-
mous success enjoyed by
investors here (most especially
Kerzner International) between

1992 and 2002 motivated them -

to do so. The success enjoyed
by those investors was a combi-
nation of a robust global eco-
nomic situation and a domestic
policy machinery that made
doing business in The Bahamas
more responsive than it had
been for almost 20 years prior
to 1992.

R czinat Smith, presi-
dent of the Exuma

Chamber of Commerce, made
a number of excellent points
about potential fallouts from
these supposed anchor pro-
jects.

What is interesting, however,
is that PM Christie would go on
to defend his policy as if he
actually has a project that is on
the ground and completed!
Emerald Bay Resorts was not
approved by Mr Christie,
though he and his colleagues
act as if this is so.

It was approved by Mr Ingra-
ham’s administration and when
it approved the project, it was
not done so as an “anchor pro-
ject”; it was simply a viable pro-
ject to boost the much-lagging
economy of Exuma. Mission
fulfilled in that regard.

Truth be told, an anchor
development policy is nothing
more than a word game by a
prime minister who likes words.
It is time for The Bahamas to
adopt a genuine economic
development policy that has
substance and that is sensitive to
the peculiar needs of the
Bahamian people in a globally
integrated world. It is doubtful
that we will ever see such a pol-
icy where there is more focus
on form than substance.

Prince Edward, the Earl of
Wessex is expected to visit the

’ Bahamas when he takes a tour

of the Caribbean next month.

The prince will also stop in
the Cayman Islands, Jamaica,
Barbados and Grenada during
the visit, which will take place
from February 2 to 8.

Prince Edward is the
youngest child and third son of
Queen Elizabeth II.

He has held the title of earl of
Wessex since 1999. The earl is
currently seventh in the line of
succession to the British Crown.

The earl and countess of
Wessex will carry out a full
schedule of royal duties on
behalf of the Queen.

In recent years, Prince
Edward has taken on many of
the roles of his father, the duke
of Edinburgh, who has divested
himself of some responsibilities
due to age.

The earl replaced him as
president of the Common-
wealth Games Federation and
opened the 1998 Common-
wealth Games in Malaysia.

He has also taken over the
duke's role in the Duke of
Edinburgh Awards scheme.

It was announced at the time
of his wedding that the earl of
Wessex would, upon the death
of his father eventually become
the duke of Edinburgh.



Trinidadian girl goes on
three-day fast to draw
— attention to crime

@ By ALEXANDRIO MORLEY
Tribune Staff Reporter

WITH the revelation that the
murder rate broke 60 for the
first time in six years and homi-
cides were up by almost 50 per
cent in the capital, Bahamians
can look to a 13-year-old
Trinidadian girl for inspiration
in the fight against crime.

Choc'late Allen has been on a
three-day, 6am to 6pm fast, to
draw attention to crime in her
country.

Her demonstration at the
Port of Spain National Library
has attracted international
media attention and many sup-
porters feel that the teenager’s
actions have struck a nerve in
the political arena of the
Caribbean nation.

Allen was visited by
Trinidad’s prime minister
Patrick Manning on Monday,
and she presented him with an
envelope containing a list of
campaign initiatives she intends
to stage, including a youth rally.

The teenager told reporters
that her fast is aimed at encour-
aging young children “to put
down the gun and pick up a
book.”

“I am calling on youths to
turn away from a life of crime

and do some thing positive with’

their lives. I am fasting for a 100
per cent crime-free Trinidad
and Tobago.

"I am encouraging nationals
to fast with me if they can. If
you can't come here to do it for
the entire day, come for at least
a few hours just to show your
support and just to show that
you will like to see a 100 per
cent crime-free Trinidad and
Tobago just as myself.”

‘Last year in Trinidad, 368
people were murdered and
already this year several others
have been killed. In addition, a
number of persons have been
kidnapped for ransom, with

In the Bahamas, the police
have reported that the murder
count last year increased by
eight over 2005, when the coun-
try recorded 52 homicides.

The last time the murder rate
exceeded 60 was in 2000 when
the count climbed to 74.

The police also revealed that

ures, and that reported com-
plaints against the police dur-

ing 2006 showed a 12 per cent
increase compared to com-
plaints made the year before.

Choc'late Allen echoed the
sentiments of senior officers of
the Royal Bahamas Police
Force, who called for the public
and the private sector to co-
operate with the police in the
fight against crime.

She added: “I will definitely
like financial support in order to
get all the activities that are
planned in order to fight crime,
out to the public. There are
many other activities that are
planned, besides this fast, but
because of a lack of funding we
cannot execute all the projects.”

However, this title will still
be inherited by Philip's eldest

. son, Charles (as prince of

Wales, or king), and will
become merged with the crown
when he is king.

Charles will then be able, to
create a new Dukedom of Edin
burgh for his younger brother.

There are however a numbet
of ways that the dukedom
would not merge, including if
William and Charles both die
before Philip but William had at
least one daughter. In this case,
the daughter would become
queen but Prince Harry would
become the duke of Edinburgh.

If the princes William,

Charles, Harry and the duke of

York all die before Philip, with-
out any further issue, the carl
of Wessex would inherit the
dukedom of Edinburgh while
Princess Beatrice would become
Queen.

William could marry a
Catholic or become a Catholic,
thereby becoming ineligible to
be king.

If the title had not merged,
upon the death of Charles, Har-
ry would become duke of Edin-
burgh while William would
become king.

“With that, Sir Ralph
(Grey, the Governor) on 13th
January offered the chance to
Lynden Pindling to try to
form a government as Pre-
mier. He did and on 10th
April, 1968, fresh elections
were called leading to a land-
slide victory for the PLP,” Mr
Mitchell said.

Mr Mitchell also pointed
out that by the time the
majority rule vote took place,
changes to the Bahamas’ con-
stitution had come about as
there had been a need for fur-
ther constitutional reforms.

“Most analysts see the his-
tory of the current political
order as beginning in 1942
with the Burma Road riots.
There had been individual
champions of various public
causes on behalf of the
African majority in The
Bahamas but there was no
organised public opinion in
the sense of a political party,”
Mr Mitchell said.

In his view, Mr Mitchell
said that the riots of June 1
and 2, 1942, are seen as the
awakenings of an organised
political opinion.

“The 1962 general election
(the year women were given
the right to vote) turned out
to be a disappointment. There
was a series of by-elections
held in 1960 that resulted in
the PLP increasing the num-
ber of seats in the Assembly
to 10. The PLP was reduced
to six after the 1962 election.

“The PLP polled 32,299
votes and the UBP 26,826
votes. The PLP then set
about the quest for further
constitutional reform,” Mr
Mitchell said.

“The highlight of that cam-
paign came on April 27, 1967,
when the Speaker’s mace was
thrown out of the window.
Arthur Foulkes reportedly
coined the name ‘Black Tues-
day’. The constituency bound-
aries for the 1967 general elec-

‘tion were approved on that

day,” Mr Mitchell said.

The three men, with two oth-

of much debate and scrutiny,
putting the PLP government

manner of which has been
described as "highly irregular" - sources suggested that it
was Mrs Maynard-Gibson personally who, as the newly
appointed Attorney General, decided that Mr Turner
should not attend the meeting.

However, speaking to The Tribune yesterday after the
opening of the legal year, she flatly denied these claims as

"false."

Previously, the prime minister expressed surprise at
hearing that no one in his cabinet had any knowledge of

the operation.

It was suggested that on learning of the allegation that
Mr Turner had been stopped from attending the meeting,
it may have been this deterioration in protocol that was at

the root of his surprise.

The five Bahamian baggage handlers were "lured", it
was claimed, from the country to the US on December 18,
where they were arrested and charged with drug traf-

ficking.

It is claimed that the manner of their arrest on US
shores, which came after they had been invited to attend
a "training programme" there, was the result of an agree-
ment between Bahamian and US authorities to avoid a

lengthy extradition process.

sp¢omments in the Supreme

jaScourt at the official opening

t)-of the legal year yesterday. He
vsaid he had felt obliged to

,7speak on the matter "despite a

- Strong preference to do oth-

,erwise.”

~,» His comments come in

>the wake of the controver-

se.sial judgment of Supreme

-»,€ourt Justice John Lyons in

* November — in which Jus-

., tice Lyons ruled that the

_-povernment’s failure to

icreview the pay of judges

-oijad threatened the inde-
pendence of the judiciary.

-ri; According to Sir Burton,

yin every country, the gov-

. ernment tends to be “erratic
in response to the needs of
the judiciary” as administra-

_tions are often “held
hostage by . . . contending
“demands for schools, hospi-
tals, law enforcement and
y-so forth.”
;_°. Sir Burton explained that
| judicial independence oper-
tes “at several levels which
futually support each oth-




KR

ywer”.
rg, These include adjudica-
®ve independence, adminis-
®.«“prative independence and
poystitutional independence,
,“y@ the boundaries of which
Overlap and shade into each
sssother.”
w*. He noted that administra-
‘tive independence of the
* judiciary as "the most diffi-
ult aspect in practice" to
achieve due to the "compet-
sing concerns" which
demand public funding.
Then there are "skirmish-
it yes" involved in achieving
yi xadministrative indepen-
+ ,-dence "in practice" due to
the competing interests
-» which call for funding from
>, the government.

He added that at the level
of institutional indepen-
dence the judiciary "jostles
for space alongside other
/ institutions ...and will only

~ ‘survive to the extent that

¢ “the public at large accepts
‘© *and supports it and is will-

_ ing to defend it against
‘1 . attacks from and incursions
“2 by the executive or any oth-
-\¢ er institution, public or pri-

vate."

7.) Justice Lyons’ ruling said
bg-that because the govern-

et

-4ment had failed to appoint a

«= Judicial Review Commis-
sion on two occasions to
review the salaries of
judges, they had thereby

- -made the judiciary behold-
en to the executive and

effectively taken away their -

As a result, he shut down
his court, and, now the
precedent has been set, it is
' possible for all people sen-
' tenced in a Bahamian court
| to appeal the decision on
| the basis that the judiciary

is not independent.

Some commentators have
declared that Justice Lyons’
ruling has created a "consti-
tutional crisis”.

However, responding to
his ruling in a statement to
the House of Assembly in
November, Attorney Gen-
eral Allyson Maynard-Gib-
son called it "misleading."

His ruling will now go
before the Court of
Appeals.

Justice Lyons has stated
that if he is found to have
misled the public, he will
resign, but that if he is
proven to be correct, the
Attorney General should
resign.

During his speech yester-
day, the chief justice also
said it was regrettable that
following Justice Lyons’ rul-
ing, persons within and out-
side the legal system had
abandoned the "intellectual
and communal fecundity
toward which their educa-
tion, training and experi-
ence should impel them"
and had instead "suc-
cumbed to the temptation
to the smug self-satisfaction
and cheap popularity of
rhetorical onanism”.

He said that in the event
of public controversy, it is
the duty of those “who have
benefited from training in
the discipline of the law" to
use their training to educate
the public "as to the pur-
pose the system was intend-
ed to serve and the expecta-
tions that the citizens are
entitled to entertain about
the system and the limita-
tions of the law as a cure for
societal ills."

In this case, he said, there
appears to have been a
"misunderstanding” among
large portions of the popu-
lace “about the role of the
courts in society," he said.

Fred Mitchell hits
back at accusations
of compromised .
sovereignty

FROM page one

demeaning manner by US custom officers at the airport in Miami
in 1972, the order was given by the Customs Department of the
Bahamas not to process any flights from the
US. :

Mr Mitchell said he believes the incident has relevance to yes-
terday’s observance of Majority Rule day because it reflects what
was sometimes necessary during the long struggle towards achiev-
ing the sovereignty of the Bahamas.

Alluding to the claims and criticisms by members of the
public, political observers and the opposition that the arrest
of the five baggage handlers at Fort Lauderdale Airport in Decem-
ber has called into question the political’sovereignty of the
Bahamas, Minister Mitchell said he considers those comments “an

inexcusable and major insult to me and everyone in this govern- \

ment.”

“This country is an independent and sovereign nation. We
believe in Majority Rule, we believe in the independence of this
country and we stand up for-every Bahamian citizen wherever
they are,” he said.

In the last two weeks, Mr Mitchell said, he has heard the most
outrageous and libellous statements made about the governments
handling of the incident. .

He said that one commentator on the matter went so far as to
accuse Minister of Transport and Aviation Glenys Hanna-Martin
of treason.

“A libellous statement was in fact made against the member
for Englerston accusing her of something that carries the death
penalty, simply because some people disagree with the manner in
which a matter was handled as a matter of public palicy in this coun-
try,” he said.

Minister Mitchell declared that he was prepared to “bear any bur-
den, pay any price to defend this country.”

He asked if those making accusations against the government in
this matter could say the same.

Scavella, his staff, junior offi-
cers and marines, have begun
a massive physical exercise
routine at the Coral Harbour
Base.

A statement issued yester-
day by the Defence Force said
that physical fitness plays as
a vital role in the duties
marines are expected to per-
form on a daily basis.

“It also gives the command
a proper assessment of its
troop’s state of readiness,” the
statement said.

As part of the exercise,
which began on Monday, the
men and women of the force
are expected to complete a
mile and a half run within a
specified time, push-ups, sit-
ups, pull-ups, swim for 300
meters — and afterwards, tread
water for at least three min-
utes, followed by a dive to a
minimum depth of 12 feet to
retrieve an object.

The exercise, which is
expected to become an annu-
al occurrence, will last for
three weeks, and involves per-
sonnel from every segment of
the Defence Force.

THE TRIBUNE

CARIBBEAN NEWS

Five years later,
Guantanamo has
changed but remains
source of outrage

@ HAVANA

TWO years after his release
from the U.S. naval base at
Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, Asif
~ Iqbal is headed back — to the
other side of the barbed wire,
according to Associated Press.

The British Muslim has
returned to Cuba with a group
of 11 peace activists and rela-
tives of detainees to denounce
alleged abuses at the U.S.
prison camp for terror suspects
and demand it be closed.

“It doesn’t feel anything like
Guantanamo now — I’m free,”
Iqbal, 25, told a news confer-
ence Tuesday in Havana. “But
if I can see the cages, it’s going
to be a bit emotional.”

The group, which includes
American “peace mom” Cindy
Sheehan, planned to fly to the
Cuban city of Guantanamo
Tuesday night and march out-

side the gates of the U.S. base_

on Thursday, five years to the
day since the first detainees
arrived from Afghanistan. The
demonstration is one of many
planned in the United States
and around the world to mark
the anniversary.

“I’ve come and joined this
delegation to say to the people
in Guantanamo Bay that we
have not forgotten about you,”
said Iqbal, who spent 2 1/2
years at the prison. “Until that
place is closed down, I cannot
forget what happened there.”

About 395 men are detained
at Guantanamo on suspicion of
links to al-Qaida or Taliban,
including about 85 who have
been cleared to be released or
transferred to other countries.
The U.S. military says it wants
to charge 60 to 80 detainees and
bring them to trial.

Iqbal said he spent three
months in an isolation cell and
endured painful positions,
screeching music, strobe lights,
. sleep deprivation and extreme
temperatures. The treatment
was torture, he said, and forced
him and two other British
friends at the camp into falsely
confessing they were members
of al-Qaida, Osama bin Laden’s
terror network.

The men’s experience is por-
trayed in the movie “The Road
to Guantanamo,” which
recounts how Iqbal went to
Pakistan shortly after the Sept.
11, 2001, terror attacks to meet
the woman his mother had
arranged for him to marry. His

Five years since the first detainees arrived here on Jan. 11, 2002,

friends soon joined him there.
They say they heeded a call for
humanitarian aid in
Afghanistan, arriving just as the
U.S. began its assault on the
Taliban regime for sheltering
bin Laden and his followers.

The: men were captured by
US. allied Afghan troops and
turned over to U.S. forces, who
held them in Pakistan then
transferred them to Guan-
tanamo in early 2002.

British officials eventually
learned all three were home in
England at the time U.S. inter-
rogators claimed they attend-
ed a bin Laden rally in
Afghanistan. They were finally
released in 2004, and have a
lawsuit pending against the
United States.

“We-were lucky,” Iqbar said,
adding that he’s worried about
the other detainees who could
be innocent but have no way
to prove it. No one at Guan-
tanamo has had a fair trial, he
said.

“Everyone has basically been
labeled a terrorist and guilty,”
he said. “That’s not the way
that democratic countries work.
Five years without a trial is not
acceptable, especially from the

n terror, with Bush meanwhile

United States of America.”

The mother and brother of
British citizen Omar Dehayes, a
current detainee, traveled from
the United Arab Emirates to
join the protest against the
prison camp. They insisted he
was innocent.

“J ask every mother and
every father to ask them to shut

_down this prison now and

release everyone there so they
can go back to their families
and to their mothers,” said
Zohra Zewawi, breaking into
tears.

“I ask George Bush, if he had
his child in this place, would-

n’t he feel the same?” she

asked.

In an earlier press release,
Zewawi said her son had been
tortured and blinded in one eye
since he was imprisoned in Sep-
tember 2002.

He still has not been charged
or tried.

Sheehan, whose 24-year-old
son Casey was killed in Iraq in
April 2004, said she was
“deeply ashamed” of how the
U.S. has handled the “war on
terror” and called Bush and his
administration “enemies of
humanity.”

| EU to embrace

‘low-carbon
economy’ and
cut greenhouse

gas emissions

lM BRUSSELS, Belgium

THE European Union on
Wednesday announced a plan
to tackle the EU’s growing
dependence on oil and gas
imports and the rise in global
temperatures, according to
Associated Press.

The European Commission
also said Wednesday that the
EU must reduce greenhouse
gas emissions by at least 20
percent below 1990 levels by
2020 to limit global warming
and prevent serious damage
caused by climate change.

Europe must embrace a
“low-carbon economy,” EU
Commission President Jose
Manuel Barroso _ said
Wednesday.

Surging world demand for
limited stocks of oil and gas is
likely to send prices — and
the EU’s energy import costs
— spiraling in future decades.
To avoid future energy
crunches, the head of the
EU’s executive arm said
Europe must look at avail-
able alternatives, using more
renewable energy.

“Europe must lead the
world into a new ... postin-
dustrial revolution, the devel-
opment of a low-carbon econ-
omy,” he said. “We need new
policies to face a new reali-
ty,” he said.

~ «-eQea NbItieUs package ---

reflects.a renewed sense of
purpose evident in the EU
duriirethe past year, after a
period of disarray caused by
the rejection of the bloc’s
proposed constitution by
French and Dutch voters in
2005.

Barroso said he hoped EU
leaders would approve the
plan at their summit in
March. “As soon as we have
the endorsement, we will act
swiftly,” he said.

Currently, the EU is the
world’s largest importer of oil
and gas. It buys 82 percent of
its oil and 57 percent of its
gas from third-party states.
This is projected to rise to 93
percent of its oil and 84 per-
cent of its gas over the next
quarter-century.

Russia is a large supplier,
but concerns about the relia-
bility of those supplies were
underscored this week when
shipments of Russian oil via a
pipeline running through
Belarus were disrupted by a
trade dispute between the
two former Soviet republics.

“We consider it unaccept-
able, this kind of event,” Bar-
roso said. “We will make this
very clear to our Russian and
other partners.” -

He would not comment on
reports that Russia and
Belarus had resolved their
dispute, saying the EU’s

gestures while speaking during 2 media conference at KU head-
quarters in Brussels, Wednesday Jan. 10, 2007. The EU warned
Wednesday that it must_wean itself off oil imports and slash the car-

se
an

energy chief Andris Piebalgs
would meet with a Russian

_ official later Wednesday.

Europe must “actively
develop a common external
energy policy and speak with

one voice to third countries,” .

Barroso said.

Piebalgs told reporters that
20 percent of all EU energy
should come from renewable
power by 2020 and 10 percent
of vehicle fuel from biofuels.

The EU wants to set bind-
ing targets for the first time,
he said, suggesting a massive
boost in low-carbon, home-
grown power such as wind
and solar energy to cut
reliance of imported fossil
fuels.

Piebalgs said the EU
should aim to draw 10 per-
cent of vehicle fuel from bio-
fuels such as ethanol, trying
to bite into growing demand
for imported oil.

But addressing the con-
tentious issue of nuclear ener-
gy, Barroso said the EU's
executive arm would respect
the right of individual mem-
ber nations to decide whether
they wanted to develop it or
not. |

“It’s not up to us to tell the
member states whether in
their energy mix they should

os XN

have more or less nuclear or
none at all,” he said. “What is
important is to make progress
toward an economy that is
less dependent on carbon.”

Presenting its new energy
strategy, the EU’s executive
arm said global cuts of 30
percent will help ensure tem-
peratures rise no more than 2
degrees Celsius above prein-
dustrial levels. This target is
“both technically feasible and
economically affordable” if
action is taken quickly, it
said, calling for other regions
to move as well.

“As an essential step
toward this long-term reduc-
tion, the group of developed
countries should cut their
emissions to an average of 30
percent below 1990 levels by
2020 under a new global cli-
mate change agreement,” the
Commission said.

The EU energy strategy
will be debated by environ-
ment ministers of the bloc’s
27 nations on Feb. 20 in Brus-
sels. Climate change is at the
center of the new policy,
which calls for the end of
dependence on oil and gas
and the increases use
of renewable sources,
such as wind power and bio-
fuels.

READ THIS COMPELLING NINETEEN PART
STORY ABOUT MELI AND HER FAMILY'S
QUEST FOR A BETTER LIFE.

Long Road Home

by Katherine Paterson ~ illustrated by Emily Arnold McCully



When Meli, an Albanian 11-year-old
girl, begins her story, she and her large,
close-knit family are happily—if not
securely—living in their ancestral
community in Kosovo. But in 1999
Slobodan Milosevic’s rule drives ethnic
Albanians from their homes. Family
closeness is not enough. The



intervention of U.S. forces is not
_enough. As Meli tells her gripping tale,
the family: must flee, embarking on a
dangerous journey in search of safety.
Though family ties and tradition are



severely tested, they eventually reach



the U.S. and the tranquility of a
Vermont town. It is there that Meli
experiences both the welcoming American spirit and the post-9/11 distrust of
Muslims. Her response is an inspiration for all.

Based on a true story, Long Road Home presents a warm and compassionate family’s



"response to conflict and emigration to America. se =e ae $

‘Blair reassures Sinn Fein on British
spy agency's role in Northern Ireland

@ SINN FEIN President Gerry Adams speaks to the media during a press conference in west Belfast,
Northern Ireland, Wednesday, Jan. 10, 2007. The Sinn Fein leader was giving his response to the news
from British Prime Minister Tony Blair that Britain's domestic spy agency MIS and the Police Service
of Northern Ireland will operate as distinct bodies in Northern Ireland. Adams stated that there is no
place in Ireland for MI5.

@ DUBLIN, Ireland

BRITAIN’S domestic spy
agency MI5 will not become
intertwined with Northern

Ireland’s police force as part
of new anti-terrorist intelli-

gence plans, Prime Minister

’ Tony Blair said Wednesday
. in an effort to placate Sinn
Fein, according to Associated
Press.

Blair issued his statement
in hopes it would help the
‘Irish Republican Army-

‘linked party dump its

* decades-old policy of shun-
‘ning the Northern Ireland
' police. That step is essential
“for reviving a Catholic-
‘Protestant administration as
‘the 1998 peace accord for
‘ the British territory intend-
etd. ;
*, Sinn Fein leaders have
“argued they cannot support
‘the predominantly Protes-
, ‘tant police force if its offi-
*cers continue to spy on IRA
“members in cooperation
“with MI5. The party’s lead-
/ers will meet Saturday in
: Dublin to decide whether to
.' schedule a special party con-
- ference that would vote on
* supporting the police for the
first time in history.

“The PSNI (Police Service

‘of Northern Ireland) and the
. (MI5) Security Service will
be completely distinct and
‘entirely separate bodies,”
- Blair said in a statement
“published after two months
.of negotiations with Sinn
Fein on the subject.
. Britain’s reform,
announced in October, calls
‘for MI5 agents to take con-

.>+"-trol of gathering intelligence
~ “on Northern Ireland’s tradi-

\

-* tional groups — chiefly the
IRA and outlawed Protes-
tant groups called the Ulster

- Defense Association and

*, Ulster Volunteer Force —

‘as well as any local activists
-for new international
- threats, such as al-Qaida.
*. Traditionally, a secretive
police arm called Special
: Branch had that duty, but it
has been abolished as part
of wide-ranging police
‘reforms being pursued in
support of the 1998 peace
deal.

* Until now, MIS has gath-

‘ered anti-terrorist intelli-

. gence in the rest of the Unit-

ed Kingdom, but not North-

“ern Ireland. A regional MI5

headquarters is under con-
struction in the east Belfast
suburb of Holywood.

Blair said only a small
‘number of police officers
would liaise with MI5 agents
in Northern Ireland. These

'
t
‘
'
'
'

officers would be kept.

_- informed of MIS intelligence
leads “for fixed, time-limited
| periods” under the direction



of the police commander,
Chief Constable Hugh Orde.

Blair said those officers
would have their work scru-
tinized both by a Catholic-
Protestant civilian panel and,
if appropriate, an indepen-
dent. official responsible for
probing complaints against
the police. He said the
increased responsibilities for
MI5 would produce “no

diminution in police
accountability.”
Sinn Fein’s justice

spokesman, Gerry Kelly,
welcomed Blair’s statement.
He said Sinn Fein had long

demanded the abolition of ©

Special Branch, and feared
that joint police-MI5 opera-
tions would create another
“force within a force.”
“Our objective has been
to firewall local policing



from the malign and corrup-
tive control of MI5!'The pro-
posals today remove MI5
from policing structures in
Ireland,” said Kelly, an IRA
veteran who hopes to
become justice minister —
involving oversight of the
police force — in a future
power-sharing administra-
tion.

But several other parties
in Northern Ireland accused
Sinn Fein of playing along
with a Blair deception in
hopes of conning its own
grass roots at its upcoming
party conference. .

They said Blair was delib-
erately playing down the
reality that MIS would be
able to pursue spying with
greater secrecy and less
accountability than the
police.

Opening lead — jack of diamonds.

Whenever declarer is playing in a
suit contract, he invariably has to
decide whether it is better to draw
any, all or only some of the oppo-
nents’ tramps. Unfortunately, there is
no magic answer to this question. In
the final analysis, the best way of
deciding whether or not to draw
trumps is to count either losers or
winners.

For example, consider this deal
from a small duplicate game where
all three declarers got to four hearts."



_ At the third table, South found by
far the best approach to the play.
After muffing the third diamond, he
cashed only one trump — the ace —
and then played three rounds of
spades. If the spades turned out to be
divided 3-3, he would be home free,
but even if they broke 4-2, the
defense would be helpless.

In practice, East returned a trump,
but South won in his hand, mffed the
spade seven with the heart queen and
easily scored the rest of the tricks to
bring home: the contract.

Hugo Chavez says he will

move

Venezuela toward socialism

l@ CARACAS, Venezuela

PRESIDENT Hugo Chavez
echoed Fidel Castro’s cry of
“socialism or death” as he was
sworn in for a new six-year term
on Wednesday, promising to
accelerate Venezuela’s trans-
formation into a socialist state,
according to Associated ‘Press.

Chavez took the oath of office
at the National Assembly after a
sweeping re-election victory that
has given him free reign to pur-
Sue more radical changes,
including plans to nationalize
power and telecommunications
companies.

His right hand raised, Chavez
declared: “Fatherland. Social-
ism or death — I swear it,”
invoking the Cuban leader’s
famous call to arms.

Chavez also alluded to Jesus,
saying: “I swear by Christ — the
greatest socialist in history.”

In a speech that followed, he
said the central aim of his term
that runs until 2013 will be “to
build Venezuelan socialism.”

“I don’t have the slightest
doubt that is the only path to
the redemption of our peoples,
the salvation of our fatherland,”
Chavez told lawmakers to
applause. He said he believes
that socialism — not capitalism
— is the only. way to guarantee
well-being not
Venezuela, but the world.

Chavez has said he will ask
the National Assembly, solidly
dominated by his allies, for spe-
cial powers allowing him to
enact a series of “revolutionary
laws” by decree. While the
changes remain vaguely defined,
Chavez said Monday “all of that
which was privatized, let it be
nationalized.”

_ With oil profits booming and
his popularity high, Chavez
seems to be in step with many
Venezuelans even as spooked
investors rushed to sell off
Venezuelan stocks in the affect-
ed companies after his national-
ization announcement Monday.

Chavez attended a ceremony
earlier Wednesday at the tomb
of Simon Bolivar, the South
American independence hero
who is the inspiration of
Chavez’s “Bolivarian Revolu-
tion” movement. He then rode
in an open car, blowing kisses
and waving to supporters who
tossed rose petals, to the Nation-
al Assembly, where he installed
for a third term that runs until
2013.

After Chavez was sworn in by
National Assembly President
Cilia Flores, some lawmakers
shouted “Viva socialism!”

Chavez, an admirer of the 80-
year-old Castro, has said he is
crafting a new sort of “21st cen-
tury socialism” for Venezuela.
Critics say it is starting to look
like old-fashioned totalitarian-
ism by a leader obsessed with
power.

“They want to nationalize
everything. This is the begin-
ning,” said Marisela Leon, a 47-
year-old engineer who said she
might consider leaving the coun-
try because she sees difficult
times ahead. ‘

White House press secretary
Tony Snow suggested Tuesday
that Venezuela was making a
mistake by nationalizing com-
panies, which he said “‘has a long
and inglorious history of failure
around the world.”

The U.S. government also has
expressed concerns about
Chavez’s plan — as yet vaguely
defined — to bring under state
control four lucrative oil pro-
jects now run by foreign. com-
panies in the Orinoco River
basin.

But most of Chavez’s largely
poor supporters remain opti-
mistic. Miguel Angel Martinez,
a 52-year-old street vendor, said
the president “has dedicated
himself to studying communist,
socialist and democratic models
and has taken the best of those
models.”

Orlando Vera, a 63-year-old
window washer, said national-
ization makes sense for compa-
nies that serve the public inter-
est. “Everything the man is
doing is good,” he said, adding
that his economic situation has
improved under the Venezue-
lan leader.

During the election campaign,
Chavez said he would seek con-
stitutional reforms including
scrapping presidential term lim-
its, which bar him from running
again in 2012. This week, he also
called for a constitutional
amendment to strip the central
bank of its autonomy.

First elected in 1998, Chavez
has cemented his popularity by
using a bonanza in oil profits to

only for

Hilton enjoys ‘record 2006’

@ By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune. Business Editor

he British Colo-
nial Hilton
enjoyed a “record
year” for both
occupancies and
room rates, the vice-president
of its immediate holding com-
pany told The Tribune yester-
day, as the hotel plans a remod-
elling “of the entire building”
worth around $10 million.
Gerardo Barrios, vice-presi-
dent of operations and general
manager for the British Colo-
nial Development Company,
said the hotel was eyeing a
“mid-year” start date for the
interior renovations, which will
include all its 291 rooms and
public areas, such as food and
beverage.

Mr Barrios said: “We are
looking at a remodelling of the
entire building, all the rooms
and the public areas.” He added

Resort plans ‘remodelling’ of all 291 rooms and public areas in $10m project likely to start by mid-year

that this would further help to
drive occupancy and average
daily room rates following last
year’s banner year.

“2006 was a record year for
us, on both the occupancy and
average rates,” Mr Barrios
added.

The British Colonial Hilton
generated an average occupan-
cy rate for 2006 that was in the
mid-80 per cent range, with
average daily room rates
(ADR) of around $173-$174.

The resort had hired a new
general manager, director of
operations, and controller, and
Mr Barrios said: “We’re really
looking at maximising on the
business traveller, and looking
at specific markets segments to
provide much better returns for
the property.”

On the renovation, he added:

“The idea is to bring the prop-
erty to a higher rate to enable us
to continue to be competitive
when Baha Mar opens. It’s
going to have the Starwood
brands, W, St Regis, Sheraton
and Westin.

“We need to be up there, to
bring the room inventory to a
higher class level, which is what
Nassau needs.”

The British Colonial Hilton
has been something of an
anchor property for downtown
Nassau and the Bay Street area,
and is likely to feature as an
anchor again once the project
to revitalise downtown and
waterfront Nassau begins.

Mr Barrios said the Hilton’s
Centre of Commerce was now
at 100 per cent occupancy, filled
by a mixture of law firms, such
as Davis & Co, and financial

services providers, which has

enabled it to charge premium
rental rates.

“We got the last few tenants
we required, so we’ve got to 100
per cent occupancy. The hard
work of the last few years has
paid off,” Mr Barrios said.

He added that Scotiabank
(Bahamas) had also taken extra
space in the British Colonial
Hilton’s Centre of Commerce.

“In my opinion, it’s the only
true business hotel right in the
heart of downtown Nassau,” Mr
Barrios said. “It’s a very his-
toric building, surrounded by
all the embassies and financial
centres, so we want the dis-
cerning business traveller. It’s
the best address for anyone
coming to do business in Nas-
sau.

“Tt’s only going to get better

in Nassau and for us.”

Apart from the upgrades to
the British Colonial Hilton, the
immediate area will also receive
a further boost from a proposed
multi-million marina/resort
development just to the west of
that hotel.

In a previous exclusive inter-
view with The Tribune,
Andrew Farkas, chairman and
chief executive of New York-
headquartered Island Global
Yachting, said the company
was in the process of finalising

‘a Heads of Agreement for the

project with the Government,
which will be located “between
the Hilton and the beach”.
An economic impact study
conducted for the project has
predicted that Island Global
Yachting’s project will gener-
ate “very substantial employ-

ment”, creating 700 direct full-
time jobs and a further 400
indirect permanent jobs for
Bahamians. The indirect jobs
will be created at suppliers of
goods and services to the
development, and among those
who provide services to yachts.

In addition, the project is
projected to create a 200-250
full-time jobs during the con-
struction phase, and have a
total economic impact of
$222.8 million over a 20-year
period. .

Island Global Yachting
anticipates that the marina will
open some 16-18 months after
construction begins, servicing
mega yachts and big boats,
with the condo hotel compo-
nent coming on line 26-28
months after construction
starts.

THE Clearing Banks Association (CBA).

is expecting to make a final decision on the
software provider for an Automated Clear-
ing House (ACH) “by the end of this
month”, with the first phase implemented
by the-end of June-2007 at latest.

Paul McWeeeny, Bank of the Bahamas
International’s managing director and head
of the CBA’s working group on the ACH
project, yesterday told The Tribune that
the list of potential software providers had
been reduced to two.

“We shortlisted the request for proposal
response down to two, and thought it pru-
dent to make some site visits to various

McWeeney said.

“The intention is to visit these sites this ©

month; as soon as possible. We are making
these arrangements right now.. Again, the
expectation is still that we will make a final
decision at the end of this month, and this
will keep us within the June [implementa-
tion] perimeter.”

The ACH is being viewed as a mecha-
nism to boost the efficiency and integrity of
the Bahamian commercial banking and pay-
ments system, and in the first phase it will
provide all commercial banks with an inter-
linked system for the electronic processing
of cheques.

Mr McWeeney said the intention was
also to provide direct debits and credits in



the first phase, so that bank customers could
debit and credit funds electronically. For
example, instead of providing employees
with pay in the form of cheques, Bahamian
companies would be able to credit employ-
ee bank accounts even if they were at a dif-
ferent bank.

“It would provide the mechanism to facil-
itate the electronic transfer of funds,” Mr
McWeeney said, and eliminate the need
for all the commercial banks to meet week-
ly at the Central Bank to clear cheques cur-
rently transported around by armoured car.

Mr McWeeney added that the clearing
banks were “in the final stages of appoint-

THE $300 million Cotton Bay resort development is slated fora
soft opening this November, as the property moves into its final con-
struction stages.

Wim Steenbakkers, director of operations for Cotton Bay Estates
and Villas, told The Tribune that the first phase of the project was
on track to be completed by the end of the year.

Mr Steenbakkers explained that the construction of phase one
included two and three-bedroom villas, 114 beachfront and ocean-
view estate lots, and a 26,000 square foot clubhouse with full
amenities, all expected to be completed during 2007.

The clubhouse is expected to be completed by September, and
the first villas and swimming pool

complex by June, he added.

interpretation of NHI la

@ By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

THE National Coalition for
Healthcare Reform has told The
Tribune that the Government has
yet to issue a statement clarify-
ing what the most controversial
clause in the National Health
Insurance Bill means for the busi-
ness community, with the private
sector fearing the courts could
interpret it differently should a
legal dispute arise.

Winston Rolle, a former
Bahamas Chamber of Commerce
president and consultant to the
Coalition, told The Tribune that
the group - featuring private sec-
tor bodies, trade unions and the
medical profession - “haven’t had
anything” from the Government
when it came to clarifying Clause
14 in the Bill.

Clause 14 is the one that has

PAGE 2B, THURSDAY, JANUARY 11, 2007

caused most controversy where
employers are concerned, Clause
14 (1) of the NHI Bill says that
despite any agreement a Bahami-

‘an employer may have in place

regarding the provision of group
health insurance for his workers
with a trade union representing
them, or in their contracts of
employment, “every employer is
entitled to modify..... the rate of
contributions payable” under this
scheme, to eliminate any dupli-
cation and “overlap” of benefits
with the proposed NHI scheme.

Apart from the fact that this
seems to allow employers to arbi-
trarily tear up any contracts and
agreements made over the pro-

vision of private health insurance:

for their staff, the following
clause, 14 (2), of the Bill stipu-
lates that “no employer shall
make any modification [to their
private group coverage] without



BUSINESS

Private sector fears court

obtaining the prior written
approval of the Minister”. To
obtain this approval, all relevant
information and materials, includ-
ing a copy of the group health
plan, has'to be sent to the Minis-
ter.

Businessés fear Clause 14 could
even be interpreted as prevent-
ing companies from dropping pri-
vate group health insurance for
their employees once NHI comes
in.
Mr Rolle said that in discus-
sions with the Coalition, Justice
Ricardo Marques, head of the
committee that drafted the legis-
lation, and his team had indicated
that “our interpretation and
understanding were wrong”.

He added that they said “the
clause was put in place so employ-
ers can actually make adjustments
to their [private group health
insurance] benefits packages once

NHI comes in”.

Yet Mr Rolle said the Coali-
tion and:private sector’s concerns
were how Clause 14 would be
interpreted “once it gets into
court” if a dispute arises.

He said the Coalition feared
the courts would interpret Clause
14 differently to what the Gov-
ernment’s interpretation was.

The Coalition had interpreted
the Clause as requiring Bahamian
businesses to first obtain minis-
terial approval before adjusting
their private group health insur-
ance benefits once NHI came in,

It was thought that this was
designed to ensure that employ-
ees were left no worse off once
NHI came in on their health
insurance benefits, and required
companies to purchase supple-
mentary private insurance.

“It was explained to us that the
Clause was put in for employers,”

Mr Rolle said. “You have

employees making 20, 30 even 50

hes cent contributions to their
ealth plans.

“When NHI comes in, those

employees will have to make con-
tributions to NHI, plus contribu-
tions to supplementary insurance
packages that employers have in
place. It is anticipated that most
employees will not want to do so,
and that [Clause 14] releases any
obligation of the employer to put
in place any other insurance pack-

age.”

However, Mr Rolle added:
“When you read it, it doesn’t read
that way.” Again, he warned that
the courts may interpret it differ-
ently.

Dr Nottage said in his presen-
tation to the Bahamas Business
Outlook Conference that the stip-
ulation about requiring minister-
ial approval was “really to pro-

THE TRIBUNE



tect both parties”, employer and
employee. He added that Clause
14’s general intent was to allow
employers to renegotiate their
private group health insurance
packages and modify the premi-
um rates.

While employers could provide
their workers with the same level
of health coverage, this wopld be
done through a combination of
NHI as the primary carrier and
supplementary private insurance.

Mr Rolle said the Coalition was
in “a holding pattern”, and try-
ing to assess its next steps.

He added: “This is the critical
part in the whole process - the
definition of the various regula-
tions. We need to be involved so
we can understand where we’re
going. “We’re eager to have the
opportunity to make input in that
regard, so al] these points are
dealt with and addressed.”

National Health to ‘level playing field’ for small business

@ By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

THE National Health Insurance
(NHI) plan will “level the playing field”
for small and medium-sized Bahamian
businesses, the minister of health and
national insurance said, allowing them
to retain and compete for the best work-
ers against this nation’s largest employers.

Dr Bernard Nottage said many small
Bahamian companies, which accounted
for about 60 per cent of this nation’s eco-
nomic activity, were unable to afford pri-
vate group health insurance policies for
their employees.

eHe told the Bahamas Business Out-
look conference that because NHI would
involve lower premium payments than
private insurance plans, small businesses
would find the scheme affordable and
be able to provide attractive healthcare
for their workers.

Dr Nottage said NHI would be .
“portable”, meaning that employees

would still have health insurance after

they changed jobs. He argued that this

Private Banking
OYSTER Funds

was not the case with private insurance,
as group policies could not be transferred
between jobs, thus providing a disincen-
tive for employees to switch from a firm
that had coverage to one that did not.

The minister said this could result in
“job lock”, with employees - especially if
they were sick or needed medical treat-
ment - remaining in jobs they did not
like just to ensure they had medical insur-
ance. This, Dr Nottage said, was “not
good for themselves and not necessarily
good for the business enterprise”.

“Tt will level the playing field for small
and medium-sized businesses, which
account for 60 per cent of current eco-
nomic activity and the largest share of
employees,” the minister said of NHI.

For those small and mid-sized Bahami-
an companies that currently did provide
private health insurance coverage for
their employees, Dr Nottage said they
would enjoy cost savings from lower NHI
premiums when the scheme came into

" effect.

‘Although he declined to give an esti-
mated implementation date, Dr Nottage

said the lower NHI

premiums - it will be
mandatory for all
companies and
salaried workers to
join the scheme -
would provide sav-
ings that firms would
be able to use else-
where in their busi-
ness, freeing up cap-
ital for investment
and capital expéndi-
ture projects that
would make them more competitive.

Dr Nottage’s address attempted to
ease the fears many in the private sector
have about NHI, especially its costs and
administration, but ignored the con-
tentious areas on which the Government
has been challenged in relation to the
scheme.

He argued that he did “not think
there’s a government more business
friendly and private sector friendly than
the current government”, a claim likely to
be greeted by scepticism by mahy in the

business community due to the way it
has handled NHI and the consumer pro-
tection legislation.

Dr Nottage took on critics who have
argued that the NHI programme will
reduce choice, arguing that it “will
enhance, not weaken” the choice
Bahamians have in choosing their health
services provider, public and private.

He did not, though, address choice
when it came to providing healthcare
insurance. Dr Nottage said NHI would
become the primary healthcare provider
in the Bahamas, with private carriers pro-
viding supplementary insurance pack-
ages.

This, he added, would force Bahamas-
based private health insurers to “adjust”
their benefits packages and premiums,
a move the minister claimed would
“enhance business prospects” and their
ability to attract new members.

Bahamians would also be able to rene-
gotiate their private health insurance pre-
miums, and Dr Nottage said the arrival of
NH] as the primary carrier could increase
returns for Bahamian insurers.

In addition, Bahamians with pre-exist-
ing illnesses would not be excluded or
charged a higher premium when NHI
came into existence.

Dr Nottage said that following con-
sultations with relevant stakeholders, the
Government had received feedback that
the Bahamian public felt NHI was an
idea whose time had come. :

He pointed out that out of the world’s
20 most developed nations, only the US
did not have a national health scheme,
and California had moved to enact such
a plan in the last week.

The Government spent some $300 mil-
lion, and 15.5 per cent of its annual Bud-
get, on healthcare, an amount equiva-
lent to 5.6 per cent of GDP.

Dr Nottage said the International
Labour Organisation (ILO) had backed
the Government’s NHI scheme, although
it noted that some adjustments and “rig-
orous management” was required,

Emphasising that NHI did not mean
“free healthcare”, Dr Nottage said tlic

Government and its NHI team were giv-"

ing “strict attention to those caveais -

higher as
investors
look past
oil prices

BY TIM PARADIS
Associated Press

NEW YORK — Wall Street
managed a modest gain
Wednesday after investors fret-
ted over the impact of falling oil
prices but were nonetheless
inspired to buy following
upbeat news from Alcoa and
Apple.

The market began the ses-
sion with fresh concern that
oil’s decline would hurt profits
in the energy sector and scare
off money from sources like
hedge funds that have helped
push stocks higher in recent
months.

Adding to that sense was a
profit warning from Chevron.
Investors’ unease about sliding
prices was a marked departure
from that seen last summer and
in subsequent months, when
rising oil raised the specter of a
jump in inflation.

Investors eventually turned
their attention to bullish news
such as word that US Airways
Group.raised its bid for Delta
Air Lines.

They were also pleased by
news from Apple, which
unveiled long-awaited plans for
a mobile phone, as well as by a
solid profit report from Alcoa.

“There are good underlying
economic fundamentals. The
buyers are starting to get a little
more courageous in coming off
the sidelines,” said Al Goldman,
chief market strategist with
A.G. Edwards & Sons. “Markets
take a rest, and the sellers do
their dastardly deeds and the
buyers become a little more
aggressive and then you lift up.”

The Dow Jones industrial —
average rose 25.56, or 0.21 per-
cent, to 12,442.16. .

Broader stock indicators also
rose. The Standard & Poor’s 500
index rose 2.74, or 0.19 percent,
to 1,414.85, and the Nasdaq com-
posite index rose 15.50, or 0.63
percent, to 2,459.33.

Bonds fell on the slide in oil
prices and following a report
that the U.S. trade deficit nar-
rowed in November. Both
‘trends were seen as boosting
the economy, and perhaps lead-
ing to a rise in interest rates. .
The yield on the benchmark 10-
year Treasury note rose to 4.69
percent from 4.66 percent late
Tuesday.

The dollar was mixed against
other major currencies, while
gold prices fell.

Wednesday’s trading resem-
bled that of Monday, in which
stocks were lower for much of
the session before moving
higher near the close. The gains
Wednesday weren’t wide-
spread, however, as advancing
issues nearly equaled decliners
on the New York Stock
Exchange. Consolidated volume
came to 2.82 billion shares com-
pared with 3.02 billion Tuesday.

Light, sweet crude was down
$1.62 at $54.02 a barrel on the
New York Mercantile
Exchange.

Aluminum producer Alcoa,
one of the 30 stocks that make
up the Dow industrials,
advanced $1.71, or 6 percent, to
$30.23, after reporting late
Tuesday that its fourth-quarter
profit jumped 60 percent.

The Russell 2000 index of
smaller companies rose 0.54, or
0.07 percent, to 778.87.

Japan’s Nikkei stock average
closed down 1.71 percent. Brit-
ain’s FI'SE 100 closed down 0.57
percent, Germany’s DAX index
fell 0.72 percent, and France’s
CAC-40 was down 0.56 percent.

Trade deficit drops third month in a row

The U.S. trade deficit
unexpectedly shrank in
November to the smallest since
July 2005 as accelerating global
economic growth and a weaker
dollar pushed exports to a record
high.

BY MARTIN CRUTSINGER
Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The trade def-
icit fell for a third straight month as
the U.S. bill for foreign oil declined to

the lowest level in 16 months and
American exports hit an all-time
high.

The deficit for November declined
by 1 percent to $58.2 billion, the low-
est since July 2005, the Commerce
Department reported Wednesday.
The trade gap hadn’t fallen for three
consecutive months since early 2003.

The Bush administration hailed
the improvement as a sign that its
efforts to pry open foreign markets
were working. “When we open over-

ASIA

seas markets, American companies,
consumers and workers benefit,” said
Commerce Secretary Carlos Gutier-
rez.

But administration critics said
even with the recent improvement,
the 2006 deficit will still be signifi-
cantly higher than in 2005 with much
of the deterioration coming from
China.

CURRENCY’S VALUE INCHED UP: The increase in China's trade gap came despite a small but steady rise
in China’s currency, the yuan, during the past 18 months. The United States says the yuan is
undervalued, giving China’s exporters an unfair advantage and boosting the U.S. deficit.

China’s trade surplus |
jumps nearly 75 percent:

percent from the previous year to
$969 billion, while imports were up
20 percent to $791.5 billion, the
Xinhua News Agency said, citing
the General Administration of Cus-
toms.

_The country’s global trade sur-
plus for 2005 was $102 billion.

Xinhua gave no country-by-
country breakdown, but the U.S.
trade gap with China was expected
to pass 2005’s record $202 billion.
China’s global surplus is smaller
than that with the United States
because it runs a deficit with other
countries.

China’s total trade rose 23.8 per-
cent last year to $1.76 trillion,
according to Xinhua. The 27-nation
European Union was its top trading
partner, followed by the United
States and Japan.

December’s monthly trade sur-
plus was $21 billion, according to
Xinhua, down slightly from the pre-

highest months on record.

ATLANTA — US Airways
increased the pressure on Delta Air
Lines’ unsecured creditors to take its
buyout offer by raising the bid
Wednesday nearly 20 percent to
$10.3 billion. Whether the deal would
survive regulatory scrutiny may be
the deciding factor.

The Tempe, Ariz.-based company
also set a Feb. 1 deadline for certain
conditions to be met or its entire bid
would be revoked.

The question is whether the credi-
tors want to take the money US Air-
ways is offering and run the risk of a
long regulatory fight, or stick with
Delta’s plan to emerge from bank-
ruptcy by the middle of this year as a
stand-alone company worth $9.4 bil-

Steel exports more than doubled

EI NYSE and Goldman Sachs led a
group of investors that agreed to
buy 20 percent of the National
Stock Exchange of India, tapping
the world’s second-fastest-
growing major economy.

BY JOE BEL BRUNO
Associated Press :

NEW YORK — The New York
Stock Exchange took another step on
Wednesday in building the world’s
first truly global financial market,
leading a team of investors to buy a
20 percent stake in India’s largest
bourse.

The $460 million deal to buy into
Mumbai-based National Stock
Exchange is the latest move toward
the consolidation of global markets.
The NYSE has been leading the
trend, striking a deal to buy European
stock exchange operator Euronext
NV and now making its first entry
into Asia.

NYSE Chief Executive John Thain
has made no secret of his company’s
intentions to tap into the aggressive
growth in emerging markets. The
deal in India gives the NYSE access
to the country’s bustling business
environment — where growth in
gross domestic product is second
only to China among the world’s
major economies.

“You've heard us talk about glob-
alization, and the goal is to make sure
that we have a strategic path in the
fastest growing markets in the world
— and India is certainly one of
them,” NYSE Chief Financial Officer
Nelson Chai said. “In markets like
India, and even China, you need to
make bets and look at it with a long-
term vision.”

Joining the NYSE in buying the 20

percent stake is investment bank
Goldman Sachs Group and private
equity firm General Atlantic. Also
taking an equal stake is the private
equity division of Japanese media
and financial conglomerate Softbank
Corp.
Thain, who said the deal comple-
ments the NYSE’s global growth
strategy, worked for Goldman Sachs
for some two decades. General Atlan-
tic is one of the exchange’s biggest
shareholders since it went public last
March.

EUROPE

BY LAURENCE FROST
Associated Press

PARIS — Whatever honey-
moon the euro may have
enjoyed in France, it’s over.

With elections looming,
France is leading a backlash
against Europe’s eight-year-
old monetary union and the
hard currency that has
crowned it since Jan. 1, 2002.

Five years after the euro-
themed New Year parties,
opposition to the currency is
hardening in many EU mem-
ber states. The common cur-
rency increasingly is blamed
for a range of economic woes
from weak exports' to the off-
shoring of jobs.

Taking their cue from the
2005 referendum in which
French voters torpedoed the
EU’s draft constitution, French
politicians of all stripes are
now training their periscopes
on the European Central Bank
and its French president, Jean-
Claude Trichet, in the final
months before French presi-
dential and legislative polls.

Their main complaint: The
ECB is too independent.

“It should no longer be up
to Mr. Trichet to command
the future of our economies,
but rather up to leaders desig-
nated by the peoples of
Europe,” Segolene Royal, the
opposition Socialists’ presi-
dential candidate, said last
month. The ECB has raised its
key refinancing rate from 1

This marks the first move
Thain has made in Asia,
where the NYSE has cooper-
ating agreements but no
direct investments with stock
markets in Tokyo and Shang-
hai.

The deal gives the NYSE’

direct exposure to both
Indian stocks and derivatives.
Further, it increases the
exchange’s ability to attract
high-profile Indian companies
with U.S. listings — some-
thing it needs to accomplish
as it competes with rival
Nasdaq Stock Market Inc.

India’s stock markets have
been among the world’s busi-
est. The Bombay Stock
Exchange, India’s oldest
financial market, saw its
benchmark 30-Share Sensitive
Index — known as the Sensex
— double since 2005 to reach
new highs last year.

Capturing this growth is of
paramount importance to the
NYSE, saddled in the past
year as tough U.S. accounting
rules have kept foreign com-
panies from pursuing U.S.
listings. There are 10 Indian
companies listed on the NYSE

lion.

control but, critics say, stifling

economic growth and propel-
ling the euro to economically
damaging heights.

. Royal’s main contender on

the right, Interior Minister
Nicolas Sarkozy, surprised
economically liberal support-
ers when he suggested last
month that the ECB’s jealously
guarded independence should
not prevent monetary policy
from being placed “at the ser-
vice of a powerful economic

policy.”

SARKOZY’S ARGUMENT
While stressing his support

for the common currency, Sar- .

kozy — whom polls show is
neck-and-neck with Royal —
argued that its strength against
the dollar and other currencies
has made French labor less
competitive and caused jobs to
be transferred abroad.

“If we carry on like this, we
won't be able to make Airbus
planes in Europe any more,”
he said. “Independence is one
thing, refusing to enter into a
dialogue is another.”

French President Jacques
Chirac, who is thought
unlikely to stand for re-elec-
tion in April, took a swipe at
the ECB last week, saying
Europe needed a policy that
worked not only to combat
inflation but was also good for
growth and employment.

The French public are also
unhappy. Some 52 percent of
voters now believe that giving
up the franc has been bad for
France, according to pollsters

tioned 1,000 people, suggest-

EYE ON THE FUTURE: ‘In markets !ike India, and even China, you need to make bets and
look at it with a long-term vision,’ New York Stock Exchange Chief Financial Officer
Nelson Chai said in New Delhi on Wednesday.

Competition among the
world’s biggest stock
exchanges is expected to
become even more intense.
The NYSE is about to close its
acquisition of Paris-based
Euronext to form the first
trans-Atlantic stock
exchange, while the Nasdaq
steps up its hostile $5.2 billion
bid to buy the London Stock
Exchange.

MORE CONSOLIDATION

And, India — which limits
foreign investors to no more
than a 5 percent stake in an
exchange — might still see
more consolidation. The
Indian government in Decem-
ber approved legislation that
allows international investors
to buy a combined 49 percent
stake in any of the nation’s 22
stock exchanges.

The Nasdaq is said to bea

with China will never be
solved unless the U.S. govern-
ment and Congress demon-
strate to the Chinese that Chi-
na’s unlimited access to the
U.S. market will not remain
open unless China changes its
way,” said Auggie Tantillo,
executive director of the
American Manufacturing
Trade Action Coalition, a tex-
tile company lobbying group.

ANOTHER IMBALANCE

The overall deficit for 2006
is running at an annual rate of
$765.4 billion, putting the
country on track to see a
record imbalance for the fifth
consecutive year. The deficit
for all of 2005 was $716.7 bil-
lion.

While American consum-
ers benefit from cheaper
goods imported from abroad,
critics contend that the deficit
represents the loss of manu-

front-runner in buying into
the Bombay Stock Market,
which is that country’s oldest
and second biggest. The Bom-
bay exchange recently said it
wants to sell stakes in its com~
pany by the end of May.
Chai said the NYSE had
met with the Bombay
exchange, but focused on its
talks with the NSE because it
has trading in derivatives,
debt and other asset classes.
Part of the NYSE’s expansion
plans has been to move
beyond trading stocks and
into other investment areas.

FOCUSED ON EQUITIES

Similarly, the all-electronic
Nasdaq was seen focusing on
Bombay because it focuses on
equities. In addition, the Bom-
bay Stock Exchange aban-
doned the open outcry style
of trading in favor of elec-

tronic transactions in 1995.

The NSE averages about
$1.6 billion in daily transac-
tions, about twice as much
traded on the Bombay bourse.

A spokeswoman for
Nasdaq did not immediately
return telephone calls. Ana-
lysts contend the NYSE’s
move to India coming so
quickly after its Euronext deal
will force rivals to come out
with their own expansion
plans.

“There is a momentum
effect, when one announces
people get in a hurry to make
their own deals,” said Michael
Henry, a senior executive at
the consulting firm Accen-
ture. “Although there might
be rapid announcements as
rivals respond to this, realize
any serious player in the
exchange business has been in
talks for a while now.”

facturing jobs, to foreign
nations that compete unfairly
against American workers.

Since President Bush took
office in 2001, the country has
seen one in five manufactur-
ing jobs disappear, a total of
2.96 million lost jobs with U.S.
automakers and textile com-
panies particularly hardhit.

Democrats have pledged to
step up pressure on the
administration to deal with
unfair trade practices after
campaigning successfully to
win back control of both the
House and Senate last fall.

For November, U.S.
exports of goods and services
rose 0.9 percent to a record
high of $124.8 billion, reflect-
ing a big jump in sales of com-
mercial aircraft and aircraft
parts.

IMPORTS INCREASE
Imports were also up, ris-

ing by 0.3 percent to $183 bil-
lion. This increase came even
though America’s bill for for-
eign oil fell 0.4 percent to
$21.5 billion, the third straight
decline after petroleum
imports hit an all-time high of
$29.3 billion in August when
global oil prices were surging.
Analysts believe oil
imports will continue to mod-
erate with oil now trading
around $55 per barrel, com-
pared to the all-time high
above $78 per barrel set last
summer. Analysts said the
string of declines in the over-
all deficit were providing a
signal that the imbalance may
have peaked and could
improve further in 2007,
helped by stronger growth
overseas, a weaker value of
the dollar against many cur-
rencies and slower U.S.
growth, which translates into
lower demand for exports.

“The euro is a complete
disaster,” said Monique, a 63-
year-old housewife out shop-
ping Wednesday in northeast-
ern Paris, who preferred not to
give her surname. “Things
cost so much more than they
used to,-and who wanted it in
the first place?”

But Jean-Claude Connac,
who runs a small cheese shop
in the same neighborhood,
said the common currency’s
impact was “positive overall,”
even though it led to higher
prices. The euro has boosted
trade within Europe, and its
current strength has benefits
as well as drawbacks, he said,
citing lower fuel prices.

The European Union’s own
survey found that public sup-
port for the euro declined over
the 12 months to September in
nine of the 12 countries that
rolled out euro notes and
coins in 2002. The 13th mem-
ber of the euro zone, Slovenia,
began using the currency on
Jan. 1.

GERMANY’S VIEWPOINT

the population now want their
old marks back, a separate poll
found. :

France spearheads EU backlash against the euro

President Jose Manuel Barroso
said that “it’s thanks to the
strength of the euro that our
energy prices are bearable and
our interest rates at historic
lows — the necessary condi-
tions for growth.”

Trichet himself has toured
European newspapers offering
interviews in which he
staunchly defended the euro
and the ECB’s independence,
stressing job creation.

The Organization for Eco-
nomic Cooperation and Devel-
opment has warned thai the
euro risked becoming a politi-
cal scapegoat for problems
caused by governments’ fail-
ure to reform. One of the main
problems, some economists
say, is that the introduction of
euro notes and coins coin-
cided with the dot-com bust
and the downturn that fol-
lowed. “We're not yet in a sit-
uation where governments are
able to demonstrate the eco-
nomic benefits of the euro,”
said Gilbert Koenig of France’s
National Center for Scientific
Research.

But the temptation to blame
the ECB will not get any
weaker as the French elections
approach. The ECB is
expected to leave rates
unchanged when it meets
today in Frankfurt, but it is
tipped to raise them again in
February or March — just as
the campaigning nears its cli-
max.

US Airways ups offer
to $10.3B for Delta

° DELTA,

did not return several phone
calls Wednesday seeking
comment. Most of the large
creditors on the committee
have refused to discuss their
position publicly, except Del-
ta’s pilots union, which
opposes the merger.

Delta management has
argued that the combination
of US Airways and Delta
would not receive regulatory
approval because of the over-
lap of the two carriers’ routes.
US Airways says there
wouldn’t be any regulatory
holdup. A Jan. 24 hearing has
been scheduled by the Senate
Committee on Commerce,
Science and Transportation
on the state of the airline
industry and the potential
impact of airline mergers.

Ray Neidl, an airline ana-
lyst with Calyon Securities in
New York, said the increased
offer will be more attractive
to Delta’s creditors, but the
great unknown is whether
regulators would approve the
deal. “In my opinion, that’s
going to be the main thing,”
Neidl] said, adding that he
gives the US Airways bid a
50-50 chance of being suc-
cessful.

REGULATORY ISSUES

US Airways Chief Execu-
tive Doug Parker told analysts
Wednesday there’s an easy
way to know who is right on
the regulatory issues.

“Let’s just go ask them and
find out,” Parker said of regu-

ators. Parker was in Wash-

ington on Wednesday to talk
to lawmakers.

‘Delta Air Lines said in a
statement Wednesday that its
board will do its duty to
review the revised offer by
US Airways. But, the Atlanta-
based airline added, “On its
face, the revised proposal
does not address significant
concerns that have been
raised about the initial US
Airways proposal and, in fact,
would increase the debt bur-
den of the combined company
by yet another $1 billion.”

Added Kelly Collins, a
spokeswoman for Delta’s
pilots union, “We remain
entirely committed to defend-
ing our airline from this hos-

tile merger attempt.”

US Airways said it would
raise its offer by $1.7 billion
from its Nov. 15 bid that was
currently valued at $8.6 bil-
lion. The decision to increase
the offer was reached over the
weekend after US Airways
officials met to discuss it. On
Monday, the carrier’s execu-
tives met with Gordon
Bethune, the former Conti-
nental Airlines chief who is
working as a consultant to
Delta’s creditors committee.
Bethune urged US Airways to
put its best offer forward,
according to an official with
knowledge of the meeting
who spoke on condition of
anonymity because of the sen-
sitivity of the talks.

US Airways shares rose
$1.03, or 1.8 percent, to close at
$58.93 in trading Wednesday
on the New York Stock
Exchange, boosting the -’alue
of the revised offer.

The increased offer comes
just two weeks after Parker
told The Associated Press
that his company had no
intention at the time to
increase its bid.

REMOVING ANY DOUBT

Even so, Parker did not
exactly rule out at the time
the possibility of changing his
mind about the price.

Parker said Wednesday
that US Airways was raising
its offer to remove any doubt
that its bid was worth more
than Delta’s plan to remain a
standalone carrier.

“Right now, we feel very
good about our chances of
getting this done” despite
Delta management’s position,
Parker said in a conference
call with analysts.

Parker said in an interview
Wednesday that Delta’s credi-
tors committee did not ask US
Airways to raise its offer, but
it indicated it was having a
hard time reaching a decision.

“We just wanted to make it
a much, much easier analysis
for them, and today we’ve
done that,” Parker said.

US Airways said the
increased offer is set to expire
on Feb. 1 unless creditors indi-
cate support for the start of
the due diligence process,
which would open up Delta’s
books to US Airways.

$20m in taxes,

million in sales
at stake in EU
trade talks

@ By CARA BRENNEN-
BETHEL
Tribune Business Reporter

MORE than $20 million in
government taxes, and millions
of dollars in sales by Bahamian
exporters, could be impacted
by the outcome of negotiations
between the European Union
(EU) and CARICOM on an
Economic Partnership Agree-
ment (EPA), which have yet
to be concluded.

The EPA is being negotiated

through Cariforum, a body

representing the Bahamas, oth-
er CARICOM members and
the Dominican Republic, and
is designed to replace the
Cotonou Agreement - a trade
programme of preferences that
allows certain Caribbean-based
exporters to export their goods
into the EU market duty-free.
Although Cotonou is sup-
posed to last until 2020, in real-
ity the agreement will expire
at the end of 2007. This is
because the agreement is
regarded as ‘discriminatory’
under World Trade Organisa-
tion (WTO) rules, as it offers
Caribbean nations preferences
and benefits not available to
others.

Outcome

“ Although the outcome of.

EPA talks is unclear, A.
Leonard Archer, ambassador
to CARICOM at the Ministry
of Foreign Affairs, said it could
impact $10 million in revenue
that the Government earns

-annually from European

imports to this country.

In addition, the Government
earns about $13 million or $5
per gallon in export taxes
annually from Bacardi through
its exports of rum to Europe,

and a further $600,000 from -

fisheries exports.

Bahamian companies that
export to Europe will also be
impacted. The Tribune under-
stands that Bacardi sends
about 98 per cent of its exports
to Europe.

Mr Archer said the three
largest Bahamas-based
exporters to the EU were Par-
adise Fisheries, Bacardi and
Polymers International, and all
are likely to have million in
sales revenue potentially at
stake.

The EPA will provide for

‘reciprocity, meaning that the

Caribbean nations will have to
offer the same preferences and
benefits to the EU nations as
these countries offer them.

The negotiations will touch
on areas such as market access,
services, financial services,
tourism, government procure-
ment and agriculture.

Mr Archer told The Tribune .

yesterday that although a deci-
sion had to be made as to
whether the Bahamas will
adopt any EPA agreement

The Tribune wants to hear
from people who are
making news in their
neighbourhoods. Perhaps
you are raising funds for a
good cause, campaigning
for improvements in the
area or have won an
award.

If so, call us on 322-1986
and share your story.



which allows for free trade
between Europe and the
Bahamas, he cannot say if the
matter will be resolved before
the end of the current admin-
istration’s term in office.

Mr Archer said EPA nego-
tiations were expected to be
completed before the end of
2007, but said a decision could
be made before the general
elections are called.

He added that the deciding
factor will be the economic
impact of any EPA agreement
has on the Bahamas-based
companies which do substan-
tial business with Europe.

The question for the gov-
ernment would also be
whether it loses the tax rev-
enue, or accept the job losses
that would most likely occur if
it does not.

The ministry of foreign
affairs, Mr Archer said, has
been in meetings with these
companies to determine the
best way forward, but said the
final decision will be at the
Cabinet level.

Mr Archer also discussed the
US Caribbean Basin Initiative
(CBI), which is intended to
facilitate the economic devel-
opment and export diversifi-
cation of the Caribbean Basin
economies.

Initially launched in 1983
through the. Caribbean Basin
Economic Recovery Act
(CBERA), and substantially
expanded in 2000 through the
US-Caribbean Basin Trade
Partnership Act (CBTPA), the
CBI currently provides 24 ben-
eficiary countries - including
the Bahamas - with duty-free
access to the United States



market for most goods.
Although the current CBI
term has expired, the United
States, the Bahamas and
Caribbean countries have still
been operating under the
agreement while awaiting its
renewal.
That renewal is contingent
on a unanimous agreement of
the World Trade Organisation
(WTO), which has not hap-
pened due to the objection of

_ Paraguay.

Agreement

However, Mr Archer said
CARICOM may opt to form
an agreement similar to CAF-
TA, which would allow for free
trade simply between individ-
ual countries and the US.
Those negotiations had started,
but had to be postponed due to
preparations for the US mid-
term elections.

Now that the elections are
concluded, Mr Archer said it
was expected that talks will
resume.

Some $92 million worth of
Bahamian goods were export-
ed to the US in 2004 under the
CBI Act's preferences, a sum
that increased by 23 per cent
during the first nine months of
2005 to $78.779 million.

Most of these exports are
related to the fisheries indus-
try, which employs 20,000 peo-
ple. tae
As far as the Bahamas’s
ascension to the WTO is con-
cerned, Mr Archer said the

’ Government remains in talks,

and documents are still being
prepared for submission some
time this year.

pleased with Spirit's decision to
add non-stop service to Nassau
from Orlando, as well as to
increase offerings from Fort
Lauderdale," said Fred J.

terms of flights and destina-

"It has been such a pleasure
to see the exponential growth

"Spirit is transforming Fort

choice to Latin America and
the Caribbean. Broward now

vice from Spirit than ever
before," she said.

Similarly, Mr Lowe said the
island could build a 6,000-per-
son capacity convention cen-
tre. He explained that only six
of these facilities are currently
in the US, and they are booked
years out. The US also lost

Mr Lowe said the income

A convention centre would
also improve airlift to Grand

‘Lift the fog that
blinds new ideas’

Reginald Smith the Exuma
chamber president, said that
although the anchor projects
proposed by the Government
were a great idea, the chal-
lenge was to sustain them.

“When we put.in anchor
properties without preparing
communities, we are building a
case for failure,” he added.

Mr Smith stressed that he
was not against anchor devel-
opments, but said that rather
than build too many, he:would
like to see smaller high-end
properties operated and owned
by Bahamas

For example, he said the
Four Seasons Emerald Bay
resort, perhaps the first anchor
property built, is next to the
proposed service dock. This
means that the resort guests
have to battle with supply
trucks on the narrow street
between the resort and the
dock.

Mr Smith said that on Exu-
ma, agriculture and fisheries
were major industries at a
standstill, and residents cannot
get those supplies unless the
mailboat comes. He said that
while the harbour was full of
yachts, it used to be full of fish
and now there are no docks,

“For whom are we building
the Bahamas,” he asked. Mr
Smith said that even though
there may be jobs, the cost of
living was so high that people
were reluctant to move to Exu-
ma.

Chamber of Commerce
president, Tanya Wright,
encouraged the business com-
munity to find new markets for
their businesses.

She said companies needed
to look at economic tourism as
a way to see where their busi-
nesses should go. Mrs Wright
said the connection between
business and tourism was the

again expected by the end of
January 2007.

The critical factor in imple-
menting the ACH first phase is
for all commercial banks to pos-
sess imaging equipment, and Mr
McWeeney said those institu-
tions that do not possess it are
“working speedily to have it in
place”.

He added of the ACH’s like-
ly impaét: “It will be a lot more
efficient, and the integrity [of
the payments system] will be
improved.

“In business in general, cash
flow is King, and if we’re able to
improve the cash: flow of the
banking system, and by exten-
sion the business community,
businesses will be able to get
access to funds and turn them
around [very quickly]. They will

Mr McWeeney said the clear-
ing banks had received some 20
applications for the ACH soft-
ware ‘contract, and these had
been. reduced to eight who
came in to give presentations
before the final shortlist was
reached.

Meanwhile, excess liquidity
in the Bahamian commercial
banking system had dropped to
$27.4 million at December 20,
2006, although James Smith,
minister of state for finance,
said this tightening was likely
to have bottomed cut at the end’
of the year. :

The Tribune had been tol
that commercial banks were
competing intensely for
deposits, as a means of seeking
cash for lending purposes. To
attract deposits, some banks
were said to have been increas-
ing deposit rates, a move that
could squeeze net interest mar-
gins - the different between net
interest income (earned from
loans) and net interest expenses
(deposits).

However, Mr McWeeney
said yesterday that while inter-
est margins at some banks
might be slimmed in the short-
term, it would not have “any
material impact.on profits”.........,

iS eee ee er ee eee ae
US Airways raises Delta offer by 20 per cent

@ By HARRY R WEBER
AP Business Writer

ATLANTA (AP) — US Air-
ways Group Inc. raised its offer for
Delta Air Lines Inc. by 20 per cent
to $10.2 billion on Wednesday, as it
seeks to put pressure on the bank-
rupt carrier’s creditors to agree to a
deal that Delta’s management

‘Opposes.

It also set a Feb. 1 deadline for
certain conditions to be met or its
entire bid would be revoked.

US Airways said it would raise its
offer by $1.7 billion from its Nov. 15
bid that was currently valued at $8.5
billion.

The increased offer comes just
two weeks after the chief of Tempe,
Ariz.-based US Airways, Doug

Parker, told The Associated Press
that his company had_no intention
at the time to increase its offer.

Even so, Parker did not exactly
rule out the possibility of changing
his mind about the price.

“If these conversations move to
negotiations about value, we’re
happy to have those conversations,”
Parker said in the interview.

In a statement Wednesday, Park-
er said US Airways was raising its
bid to remove any doubt that its
bid was worth more than Delta’s
plan to remain a standalone carrier.

Parker said in an interview
Wednesday that Delta’s creditors
committee did not ask US Airways
to raise its offer, but it indicated it
was having a hard time making up
its mind.

SThey were struggling with a
decision and the analysis of our pro-
posal versus that of Delta’s stand-
alone proposal,” Parker said. “We
just wanted to make it a much,
much easier analysis for them, and
today we’ve done that.”

Delta said in a statement
Wednesday that its board will do
its duty to review the revised offer
by US Airways. But, the airline
added, “On its face, the revised pro-
posal does not address significant
concerns that have been raised
about the initial US Airways pro-
posal and, in fact, would increase
the debt burden of the combined
company by yet another $1 billion.”

US Airways said the increased
offer is set to expire on Feb. 1
unless creditors indicate support

for the start of the due diligence
process, which would open up
Delta’s books to US Airways. US

Airways also wants Delta to post- ©

pone a Feb. 7 bankruptcy hearing
involving its reorganization plan,
and it wants the creditors commit-
tee to support both companies filing
paperwork with the Justice Depart-
ment that would start the regula-
tory process.

Parker said “the offer would go
away in its entirety” if those condi-
tions were not met. “There’s an
offer on the table now and it would
expire,” Parker said.

Parker also suggested that at this
point, US Airways isn’t too wor-
ried about Delta management’s
position. “We would very much like
to see Delta management begin to

work with us and support this trans-
action, but that’s not what this pro-
posal is about,” Parker said.

In a memo to US Airways
employees, Parker added, “While I
regret the response thus far from
Delta’s management, I look for-
ward to the day when it will be
appropriate to communicate direct-
ly with Delta’s employees.”

The increased bid includes 89,5
million shares of US Airways stock
and $5 billion in cash. The original
offer included 78.5 million shares
of US Airways stock and $4 billion
in cash. The value of the increased
bid could go even higher if US Air-
ways’ stock rises after the market
opens later Wednesday.

out by US Airways. The nation’s
third-largest carrier has filed a reor-
ganization plan that calls for it to -
emerge from bankruptcy by the
middle of this year as a standalone
company worth $9.4 billion to $12
billion.

Based on the Delta’s valuation
method, US Airways estimated that
its increased bid could actually be
worth $12.7 billion to $15.4 billion.

Despite the position by Delta
management, Delta’s unsecured
creditors committee in its bank-
ruptcy case will play a key role in
deciding the airline’s future course. -
The committee had said prior to
Wednesday that it was reviewing
both Delta’s standalone plan and
US Airways’ buyout offer.

The Feb. 7 bankruptcy hearing
would be to consider approval of
Delta’s disclosure statement relat-
ing to the carrier’s standalone reor-
ganization plan. The disclosure
statement includes details on
Delta’s operations. If the statement
is approved, that means Delta can
begin soliciting votes on its reorga-
nization plan, which typically takes
four to eight weeks.

Parker has said previously that
if that hearing were to go forward it
could increase the urgency of US
Airways’ bid because US Airways
hopes to consummate its deal to
buy Delta before Delta emerges
from Chapter 11.

US Airways still has not said
where a combined US Airways-
Delta would be based. Parker said
Wednesday no decision on that has
been made.

Delta management has argued
that the combination of US Air-
ways and Delta would not receive
regulatory approval because of the
overlap of the two carriers’ routes.
US Airways says there wouldn’t be ,
any regulatory holdup. A Jan. 24
hearing has been scheduled by the
Senate Committee on Commerce,
Science and Transportation on the
state of the airline industry and the
potential impact of airline mergers.

°\i By JEANNINE AVERSA
~ AP Economics Writer
, WASHINGTON (AP) —
«After not budging for 10 years,
athe fedeyal minimum wage could
be goingpup, increasing paychecks
oftor hundreds of thousands of jan-
-xitors, fast food clerks and other
workers at the bottom of the
wage seale.
“i As their second bill since taking
control of Congress, House
’emocrats moved toward pass-
ing legislation Wednesday that
* ould boost the federal minimum
“ape from $5.15 to $7.25 an hour
‘over 26 months, It’s one of their
_ lop priorities.
,, Organized labor and other sup-
jn Porters pitched the bill as com-
ning to the aid of the working poor.
, Busingss groups and other oppo-
“snents.said it could lead to higher
prices for goods and services,
ssdorce small companies to pink-
‘slip existing workers or hire few-

of

er new ones, and crimp profits.
The bill would raise the wage
floor in three steps. It would go to
$5.85 an hour 60 days after signed
into law by the president, to $6.55
an hour a year later, and to $7.25
an hour a year after that.
“Minimum wage workers des-
perately need a raise,” said Rep.
George Miller, D-Calif., author
of the legislation. “If we truly val-
ue work, then we have to ensure
that it is fairly rewarded,” he said.
President Bush said he sup-
ports a wage boost paired with
“targeted tax and regulatory
relief” to help businesses —
which would have to pay for the
higher labor costs — stay com-
petitive. As currently written, the
House bill doesn’t include any
such tax or regulatory breaks.
House Democrats are denying
Republicans any chance to amend
the minimum wage bill. “We are
shut out,” complained Howard
McKeon, R-Calif.

BUSINESS

The Senate, meanwhile, is
expected to move quickly — per-
haps in the next few weeks — on
legislation to lift the federal wage
to $7.25 an hour over the same
time frame as in the House bill.
Business groups and some
Republican lawmakers, however,
hope they will be able to get some
business-friendly provisions into
the Senate package.

The last time the federal mini-
mum wage went up was in 1997.
That’s the longest stretch with-
out an increase since the mini-
mum wage was established in
1938. Inflation has eroded the
minimum wage’s buying power
to the lowest level in about 50
years.

The Labor Department says
479,000 workers paid by the hour
earned exactly $5.15 in 2005, the
most recent estimate available.

The federal minimum wage is
like a national wage floor, though
some people can be paid less
under certain circumstances,

BARISTAS

WANTED

States can set minimum wages
above the federal level; more than
two dozen states plus the District
of Columbia do.

People who are paid the mini-
mum wage tend to be young —
under age 25 —~ never married,
more likely to be a woman, a
minority and work part time,
according to a recent analysis of
2005 data by the Labor Depart-
ment.

If the federal wage does rise in
26 months to $7.25 an hour, about
5.6 million people — 4 percent

of the work force — who make ©

less than this would be directly
affected, according to the Eco-
nomic Policy Institute, a liberal
leaning group. ;

The group estimates that
another 7.4 million workers
would benefit indirectly as raising
the floor would ripple through
the work force.

That means higher payroll costs
for employers.

the federal minimum wage
increases by 41 percent, it will put
upward pressure on all labor costs
for small businesses, which con-
tinue to be the engine of eco-
nomic growth in the United
States,” the National Retail Fed-
eration complained in a letter
Tuesday to House Speaker Nan-
cy Pelosi of California.

The retail group expressed con-
cern about the “lack of balance”
in the House bill because it does-
n’t include other provisions to
help ease the economic impact
on companies.

Many businesses want the pot
sweetened, perhaps by faster
depreciation or other tax breaks
or letting small businesses band
together to buy health insurance
for their workers.

But AFL-CIO President John
Sweeney shot back saying: “An

|\Democrats aim to raise minimum wage in US

increase in pay for America’s low-
est-paid workers should not have
to depend on additional payutts
to business.”

Both the House and Senate
minimum wage bills also would
extend the minimum wage —- on
a separate time table — to
employers on the Northern Mar-
iana Islands, a U'S. territory.

Recent attempts to boost the
federal minimum wage had failed
when Republicans had control of
Congress.

But prospects changed after the
November 7 midterm elections
when voters —upset with the [racy
war and President Bush’s leader-
ship —- put Democrats in charyu
in both the House and Senate.

Last week Democrats, convei:
ing the new 110th Congress, touk
power for the first time in a dozesi
years.

R FO! HOME, Buying a home is not only a dream come true,

“BHA has a rich history of
supporting nation-building, and
it is my hope that we will add to
that tradition during my tenure
as president.

“With the support of our

our nation, is at a crossroads.
The things that we do over the

Second half of the ©
season gets underway

& BASKETBALL
By KELSIE JOHNSON
Junior Sports Reporter

IT WAS an easy night for
the Cleaning Center Angels
who opened the second half
of play in the New Providence
Women’s Basketball Associa-
tion (NPWBA) with a win.

Despite having only five
players show up to their first
game for the year, the Angels
cruised to a 91-30 victory over
the young Jr All-Stars team.

Leading the way for the
Angels was Keisha Richard-
son with a game high 32 points
while Chrysantha Strachan
had 28 points.

Angels team had to play
without Suzette McKenzie
and Sharelle Cash, two of

_._ their leading scorers.

McKenzie was forced to sit

'- out the season’s second half

~ opener after she picked up a
three game suspension two
days before the league closed
for the Christmas break.

Meanwhile Cash opted to
sit out and coach the Angels,
not wanting to play against the
Jr All-Stars, the team she
heads.

Cash said: “Basically as a
coach I try to go with the team
I coach. I am a senior player
on the Angels’ squad, I don’t
think they really needed me
tonight, the junior team need-
ed me more. I was sitting on
one bench and coaching the
other team.

“The junior team they did-
n’t execute, they didn’t run
the floor well or looking to
shoot. We spend 95 per cent
of our time shooting in prac-
tice, I don’t know if they were
intimidated by the senior
girls.”

Despite being blown out of

the water, the Jr All-Stars kept
playing, trying to correct the
things head coach Cash said
they have been struggling
with.

for the commitment to the
team despite not having won
any game as yet, said the main
idea of having the girls play

Cash, who thanked the girls |

in the league is to give them
some experience.

The Jr All-Stars were led by
Tiffany Wildgoose, who
scored 10 points and five
rebounds — chipping in was
Ashley Black with nine points
and eight rebounds.

Cash added: “But we have
one problem. It is so hard to
get the girls in practice, but
this is by choice. We only
practice one day a week



“The junior

team they didn’t

didn’t run the
floor well or

shooting in
practice, I

if they were

the senior girls.”



-Sharelle Cash

because I don’t want the prac-
tice to clash with the high
school practices or games. All
the girls on this team play
along with their high school’s
teams, so it is hard, but so far
it has been working and I
won’t jeopardise any of the
other teams by putting in an
extra day.

“After watching them
tonight I think they need to
work on defence and commu-
nication — the offence will
come and they will excel.”

The NPWBA will continue
today with two games on the
schedule.

All games are played at the
DW Davis gym.

Mauresmo upset,
Davydenko retires
from Sydney
International

@ TENNIS
SYDNEY, Australia
Associated Press

*TOP-SEEDED Amelie
Mauresmo was upset in the
quarterfinals of the Sydney
International on Wednesday
and Nikolay Davydenko,
seeded No. 2 in the men’s
draw, became the fifth high-
profile player to retire from
the Australian Open
warmup tournament.

Mauresmo, who won the
Australian Open last year
for her breakthrough Grand
Slam singles title, lost 7-5, 6-
0 to Serbia’s Jelena Jankovic
in the quarterfinals.

She had replaced No. 1-
ranked Justine Henin-
Hardenne as the top-seeded
player in Sydney after the
Belgian withdrew from this -
year’s Australian events for
undisclosed personal rea-
sons.

Jankovic upset fifth-seed-
ed Martina Hingis in the first
round and beat Australia’s
Samantha Stosur 6-2, 7-6 (2)
in the second and is now on
an eight-match winning _
streak after capturing the
ASB Classic title at Auck-
land last week.

She plays Nicole Vaidiso-
va, a 6-4, 6-2 winner over
Ana Ivanovic, in the semifi-
nals.

Mauresmo made 38
unforced errors and dropped
serve six times, losing for the
first time in five head-to-
heads with Jankovic.

“I’m just disappointed
about the way I feel — there
is a lot of work to do in my
game and physically,” Mau-
resmo said. “I would have
loved to play one or two.
more matches.”

Davydenko lost the first
set 6-4 to Paul-Henri Math-
ieu of France before he
retired due to pain in his
right foot. He said he would
travelto Melbourne for
medical tests and assess his |

condition before next week’s ©

Australian Open.

He said it was better to be
cautious than play through
an injury in the week before
a Grand Slam, and rated
himself a slight doubt for the
season’s first major.

It was another blow for the
Sydney tournament after
top-seeded Rafael Nadal
pulled out with a groin
injury on Tuesday.

Paradorn Srichaphan of
Thailand also withdrew with
a wrist problem, while on the
women’s side second-seeded
Svetlana Kuznetsova (respi-
ratory virus) and No. 4 seed
Nadia Petrova of Russia
(abdominal strain) also quit
their second-round matches
early.

That left Kim Clijsters and
James Blake, both seeded
No. 3, as the top-ranked
players in women’s and
men’s draw.

Clijsters had a 6-2, 6-1 win
over Israel’s Shahar Peer,
continuing a solid start to
what is expected to be her
last season on the WTA
Tour. ;

_ Her semifinal opponent
will be China’s Li Na, who
advanced 7-5, 7-1 over
Slovenia’s Katarina Srebot-
nik.

“In the last few years when
I would come to Australia,
play tennis and you kind of
say goodbye, see you next
year.’ But that’s going to be

a whole different story now,” -

said Clijsters, 23, who
reached No. 1 in 2003.

Blake finished a career-
high No. 4 in the rankings
and won five ATP titles in
2006, reaching the final of
the season-ending Masters
Cup to cap it off.

He had a 6-2, 6-4 win over
Australian wild-card entry
Nathan Healey and was
looking ahead to the Aus-
tralian Open.

“The last six months ‘has
been a pretty fun ride. I’ve
been rolling upwards it
seems,” Blake said. “I hope
to continue that, but I know
there’s going to be times
when there’s valleys to go
with these peaks.”

In other matches, Aus-
tralian Open finalist Marcos
Baghdatis advanced over Jan
Hernych of the Czech
Republic 6-4, 6-7 (2), 6-3,
sixth-seeded Richard Gas-
quet of France beat Ger-
many’s Benjamin Becker 6-
3, 6-4 and Carlos Moya over-
came eighth-seeded Fernan-
do Verdasco 4-6, 7-6 (5), 6-3
in an all Spanish encounter.

League gets under

@ SQUASH
By BRENT STUBBS

Senior Sports Reporter

FORMER national bowling cham-
pion David Slatter and former nation-
al tennis champion Sean Cartwright
pulled off victories to help their
respective teams - Gatorade Light-
ning and the Colgate Cuties - take a 1-
0 lead in the New Year’s Squash
League.

But in what could have been
described as the most competitive
match of opening night, Act II Pop-
pers’ top seed Adrian Burrows
knocked off the Gatorade Lightning’s
top seed Pembroke Williams on Tues-
day night at the Village Squash Club.

The tournament, which features six
teams of five players each, will be
contested every Tuesday through Feb-
ruary 6 before the final is contested on
Friday, February 9.

Burrows had three gruelling match-
es against Williams and he pulled off
identical set scores of 9-6, 9-6, 9-6 in
sealing the victory for Act II Poppers.

An exhausted Burrows said after
the match, “I think I was more men-
tally prepared for the match and the
ball was moving well. I just hit the
right strokes,”

Williams, a veteran champion and
national team player, admitted that
he didn’t play as well as he has played
in the past.

“The match was as well as expected,
coming back from the break,” he
charged, “I just have to lose some
weight and get back in shape.”

At age 50, Williams said he’s just
basically out to stay in shape.

So was Cartwright, who has active-
ly retired from playing tennis.
Cartwright took on the youthful Scott
Jupp and he easily disposed of him
in three games for the Colgate Cuties.

“My match went surprisingly well
for me,” said Cartwright, who
avenged a defeat to Jupp in their pre-
vious match-up. “Everything was
going for me.”

Cartwright, who said squash gives
him a tougher workout than tennis,
used a lot of drop shots that Jupp was
unable to retrieve and he caught Jupp
off guard a couple of times with some
long shots.

Jupp, the 19-year-old younger
brother of former national team mem-
ber and champion Ian Jupp, said he
just wasn’t at his best in the match.

“It went pretty well, since this was
my first match in a while,” he stressed.
“He used a lot more strategy. My
head wasn’t in the game. I just have to
get more accurate with my shots.”

Back home since graduating from
college in Canada in June, Jupp said
he just need to. get in some more
match play and he could be able to
play much better than he did.

Southpaw Slatter, who won a num-
ber of national bowling titles, said
squash certainly provides another
challenge for him.

“We were competitive. He’s
younger and I’m older, but I have a
little more experience,” said Slatter
about his opponent. “I’ve played

In an all-ladies’ match that saw both
players make their retura to the sport.

a quick three sei victory over Colgate
Cuties’ Lillian Russell.

“Tt turned out very well for me
because [ won. I don’t usually win,”
Anderson said. “But it was very good.

It was a mice match, [was just anxious
to play again.”

Russell said it was interesting.

“I think the three games was too

stated. “I think if we had played five
games, I would have done better. But
it was fun. I enjoyed it. I just have to
continue to play more so that I can

A HERO SCORNED: Mark McGwire.

McGwire pays
a heavy price
for his silence

BY BERNIE MIKLASZ
St. Louis Post-Dispatch
he wolf pack at the gate has
| howled, and now it’s official:
There will be no Hall of Fame
induction for Mark McGwire.

The halls of Cooperstown are safe,
at least for now, and I’m sure we'll
sleep better knowing that a suspected
steroids user has been barred from .

taking a spot among the assorted
, Vaseline-ball pitchers,
amphetamine heads,
racists, alleged game-
fixers and known
druggies.
* Tm pretty sure
that McGwire used
steroids, even if there is no definitive
proof. McGwire, however, has been
found guilty of doing what the base-
ball culture wanted him to do in the
late 1990s: Belt home runs, pump up
attendance figures at the ballparks,
and create excitement for an industry
that needed a virtual andro boost at
the box office after the insidious labor
battles of the middle 1990s.

McGWIRE’S NOT ALONE

Now, though, it seems that the goal
of the Hall of Fame voters is to air-
brush McGwire out of history. Pre-
tend that he never happened. But, as
voters, are we prepared to erase an
entire era? Because if McGwire is sin-
gled out and excluded from Coopers-
town, then we must be consistent and
treat all highly-acclaimed players
from the era with the same level of
suspicion and disdain. McGwire had
plenty of company at the pharmacy
counter. There’s nothing fair or just

. about selective persecution.

I’m no McGwire admirer, and
I wish he would man up and discuss,
in a meaningful way, his involvement
with performance-enhancing drugs.
More than anything, I wish he would
make good on his promise to lead the
effort to educate young, impression-
able athletes on the dangers.

But if voters disregard McGwire’s
stats, does it mean that we also should
throw away the victories and the first-
place finishes claimed by the teams
that employed him? McGwire was a
product of his times. He played dur-
ing an era of expanded muscles,
shrinking strike zones, nuclear base-
balls, smaller ballparks, diluted pitch-
ing and other elements that combined
to produce a home-run show that
Major League baseball wanted.

TESTING THE WATERS

McGwire was the first test case.
Other steroids-era home-run hitters
(Sosa, Bonds, Palmeiro) will probably
be barred from the Hall of Fame, too.
But again, what about the other play-
ers, then and now and in the future?
There is no test to detect human
growth hormone, which, among other
things, might be prolonging the |
careers of aging pitchers. But future
Hall of Fame candidates apparently
will be in solid shape with the voters
as long as: (1) they didn’t get on Jose
Canseco’s bad side; (2) they didn’t
choke under pressure after being sub-
poenaed to testify before Congress.

McGwire was a pathetic figure on
Capitol Hill in March 2005. Lawyered
up and wimpy, McGwire made a

‘lousy witness. He damaged his image,
probably beyond repair, by declining
to defend or condemn himself.

But there was a layer of principle
in McGwire’s stand. He wouldn’t join
the witch hunt.

“T will not participate in naming
names and implicating my friends and
teammates,” McGwire said. “Asking
me, or any other player, to answer
questions about who took steroids...
will not solve this problem. If a player
answers ‘No,’ he simply will not be
believed. If he answers ‘Yes,’ he risks
public scorn and endless government
investigations.”

McGwire wasn’t smart enough to
comprehend the consequence of his
stance back then. In refusing to feed
the beast that day in Washington,
McGwire turned the beast loose...
and then the beast turned on him.

The Philadelphia Inquirer

NEW YORK — Chris Webber
and the Philadelphia 76ers have
agreed on a buyout of the rest of
his contract, team president and
general manager Billy King con-
firmed Wednesday night.

The cost of the settlement with
Webber was not known. The for-
ward had the rest of this sea-
son at an annual salary of
$20,718,750 and next season
at $22,312,500 remaining on
his contract. Those numbers,
or values very close to them,
still will be counted against the
team’s salary-cap figure.

Webber, .33, becomes a free
agent. The Dallas Mavericks, the
New Jersey Nets and the New
York Knicks reportedly are inter-
ested. It is believed that Webber
wants to play for a team with a
chance to go far in the playoffs.

Sixers sever ties with Webber

Webber was not at Madison
Square Garden for Wednesday
night’s game against the Knicks.

Webber and the Sixers had been
discussing a buyout for much of
the past week. Webber had missed
ll of the team’s past 14 games with
foot and ankle problems.

He averaged 11.0 points and 8.3
rebounds per game in 18 games
with the Sixers this season, a
far cry from his averages of
20.2 points and 9.9 rebounds
last season and 21.4 points
and 10.0 rebounds over his
13-plus NBA seasons.

Webber has scored 16,661 points
in his career, ranking him 70th on
the NBA’s career scoring list.

Webber missed only five games
because of injury last season, but
back, foot and ankle injuries have
bothered him this season.

Webber sprained his right ankle
and bruised his right foot in a Dec.

The two All-Stars did just that,

But the Sixers finished just 38-44

Rush and Kaun

against Cowboys

BY STEVE BRISENDINE
Associated Press

LAWRENCE, Kan. — Brandon Rush scored
18 points, and Sasha Kaun added a season-high
16, leading No. 6 Kansas to an 87-57 victory over
No. 9 Oklahoma State on Wednesday night.

Darnell Jackson and Sherron
Collins added 10 points each for
Kansas (14-2, 1-0 Big 12), which
won its eighth game in a row and
snapped the Cowboys’ four-
game winning streak.

Oklahoma State (15-2, 1-1) lost
its 32nd consecutive road game
against a top-10 team. The Cow-
boys have not won in a top-l0
opponent’s home gym since a
52-50 overtime victory against the Jayhawks
— ranked No. 2 at the time — on Jan. 2, 1958.

The Cowboys shot just 32 percent (17-for-53)
and committed 20 turnovers, and Kansas had 17
steals, tied for the Jayhawks’ second-most in a
conference game. Kansas scored 23 points off
turnovers and outscored the Cowboys 18-0 on
fast breaks and 48-18 in the paint.

- Kansas led by as many as 22 points in the first
half, but JamesOn Curry’s 4-point play on a foul
by Collins got Oklahoma State within 53-40 with
15 minutes left to play. The Jayhawks responded
with a 16-5 run over the next 5:47, padding their
lead to 69-45, and added a 12-0 run — capped by
Darrell Arthur’s thundering dunk — to make it
81-48 with just more than 4 minutes left.

Curry and Kenny Cooper led the Cowboys
with 12 points each, and Terrel Harris added 10.

TMario Boggan — who came in as the Big
12’s second-leading scorer, at 21.9 points per
game for the Cowboys — was held to a season-



_ low eight points on 4-for-16 shooting.

Oklahoma State coach Sean Sutton earned a
technical foul‘in the first half for arguing that
Arthur’s block of Boggan’s shot should have
been a foul. Rush hit one free throw and dunked
on the ensuing possession for a 23-8 lead.

recovering, there might be
more questions than
answers next season.

JOE RIMKUS JR./MIAMI HERALD STAFF

NOT COMING BACK: Former Bolphing coach Nick Saban, who had a 15-17 record in two seasons in Miami, opted to coach Alabama.



Who is expected back?

Forget retirement, Jason Taylor. You'll have years to sit
back and smoke cigars with your good friend Dan
Marino. Right now, this team needs you! We know you'll
be back. Right?. Right?!



JASON
TAYLOR



Who could go?

If the Dolphins can muster the guts to release a player nicknamed “Joey Blue
Skies,” this could be Joey Harrington’s last year with Miami. Harrington
certainly served his purpose this year, but this is a cutthroat league. And Cleo
Lemon might have initiated the cutting with a solid start in the season finale.

HARRINGTON



How much longer can the defense last?

We’re not going to be the ones to tell Keith Traylor (right) he’s too ~
old. Have you seen that guy? He eats sportswriters like us for
breakfast. But the youth movement might need to start soon. That
said, another year might not be too much to ask out of the old timers.



Who will be next year’s starting QB?

The optimism certainly won’t be the same as it was last offseason,
but Daunte Culpepper (left) remains the Dolphins’ clear hope for
the future - at least for another year. Then, that inferno could begin
to really heat up if Culpepper can’t get on a roll soon.



Will the Dolphins be better off without Nick Saban?

Though most fans would prefer to replace the “b” in Saban witha “t” -
reminding the Nicktator he wasn’t winning anyway - the reality is this: Any
coaching change requires major adjustments. And this abrupt departure
could wind up stinging just as badly as Ricky Williams’ retirement in 2004.



Who will be the Dolphins’ draft choice?

Last time the Dolphins had the ninth pick in the draft - 17 years ago - they landed
offensive tackle Richmond Webb, who was inducted into the Dolphin Honor Roll this
season. Perhaps it’s time to try again. Too bad Wisconsin tackle Joe Thomas |
probably won't still be around. A team can dream though, can’t it?

COACHING SEARCH

Candidates’ —

@ Of the three assistants
interviewed Wednesday,
the Giants’ Tim Lewis and
the Lions’ Mike Martz have
expressed views contrary
to what the Dolphins want

asalguero@MiamiHerald.com

The Miami Dolphins have
not had deep football conver-
sations about schemes and on-
field philosophies in this initial
phase of interviews with
coaching candidates, Dolphins
Enterprises chief executive
Joe Bailey said this week.

One typical question,
according to a person familiar
with the interviews, is asking
the candidate to talk about
himself and what defines him
as a person.

But more-football-intensive
talk might have come in handy
Wednesday when the Dol-

Tim Lewis,
Detroit Lions
offensive
coordinator
Mike Martz
and New
York Jets
offensive

expressed
opinions or run schemes that
are contrary to what the Dol-

--: The Dolphins: began.the —_-.
oday-by interviewing:,Lewis, — -

who has been embattled after
the Giants yielded a combined
94 points in the final three reg-
ular-season games.

The interview team, which
included Dolphins owner —
Wayne Huizenga, Bailey and
team president Bryan Wied-
meier, left the Newark, N,J.,
meeting with Lewis and trav-
eled: to Republic Airport in
Farmingdale, N.Y., where they
interviewed Schottenheimer.

The group then flew to
Detroit to interview Martz.

What is intriguing is that
Lewis, 45, favors a Tony
Dungy-inspired Cover 2
defense that runs a 4-3 front.

The Dolphins abandoned
the 4-3 in favor of the 3-4 two
seasons ago and, after initial
resistance, excelled in the new
scheme. Jason Taylor adapted
to the hybrid end/linebacker
spot in the 3-4 and was named
the NFL’s Defensive Player of
the Year this season.

Middle linebacker Zach
Thomas embraced the scheme
and made the Pro Bowl. Tay-
lor and Thomas became fans
of the 3-4 and were named to
the All-Pro team.

That is not likely to help
Lewis’s chances.

It’s unclear if quarterback
Daunte Culpepper will be con-
tacted about his opinion on an
incoming coach. But in inter-
viewing Martz, 55, the_Dol-
phins brass is talking to a
coach who doesn’t have a high’
regard for Culpepper.

Several insiders say Martz
thought the Dolphins made a
mistake when they, in effect,
exchanged Gus Frerotte for
Culpepper before the season.

Frerotte, Martz told them,
is a good backup who makes
good decisions. Culpepper, on
the other hand, is more gifted
but is limited in his ability to
read defenses and understand
offensive concepts, he said.

Martz also is known for dis-
carding the running game, and
the Dolphins’ second-biggest
offensive investment is at run-
ning back, where Ronnie
Brown was the No. 2 overall
pick in 2005, and Ricky Wil- _
liams is expected to return.

Schottenheimer, 33,
changed his offensive con-
cepts this season when he
joined the Jets. On coach Eric
Mangini’s urging, Schottenhei-
mer installed a no-huddle
attack that New York used
90 percent of the time.

Resilient Eagles

ready for

blocking their path

From Miami Herald Wire Services

They lost their star quarterback
and their best defensive end. They

oh > .2) Amidst all;they seemed.to,lose their

way entirely.

Yet here are the Philadelphia
Eagles, looking as good as any team
in the NFC playoffs.

It is a testament to the Eagles’
resilience that despite all sorts of set-
backs, they are playing at New
Orleans on Saturday night riding a
six-game winning streak. Even if they
haven’t been overpowering, they
have been good enough. In the NFC,
that has been, well, good enough.

“J just like the attitude of every-
body,” said quarterback Jeff Garcia,
a catalyst of the turnaround after
starter Donovan McNabb injured
his knee. “The attitude of not getting
down when things aren’t going right,
being able to overcome adversity,
being able to meet a challenge head
on and fight through it.”

And how have they fought.

The Eagles already had lost defen-
sive end Jevon Kearse, their top
sack threat, when they got to 4-1.
Then they lost to the Saints 27-24,
with New Orleans scoring the final
10 points and John Carney’s 31-yard
field goal winning the game as time
expired.

That was a run-of-the-mill defeat
compared to the next week at Tampa
Bay. The Eagles rallied from a 17-0
hole, built mainly on Ronde Bar-
ber’s two touchdown returns on
interceptions of McNabb. The Eagles
were leading 21-20 after McNabb
threw his third touchdown pass
when Bucs kicker Matt Bryant lined
up for a 62-yard field goal, a yard
short of the league record.

Stunningly, Bryant made it — only
the fifth successful kick of 60 yards
or more in NFL history.

“It was definitely disappointing to
go up by a point with 33 seconds left

and let a team get down to the 50 or
so and be able to kick a field goal,”
said Eagles running back Brian
Westbrook, who had a sensational

afternoon, with 101 yards rushing and .

seven receptions for 113 yards.

“We were all excited about the
comeback, but we’ve got to find a
way as a team to finish games.”

Instead, the Eagles appeared fin-
ished when they lost for the fourth
time in five outings, to the Tennessee
Titans, and also lost McNabb. They
were routed the next week by: the
Indianapolis Colts and fell to 5-6.

Facing a home game against the
Carolina Panthers and three consecu-
tive road games against division foes,
the Eagles were counted out almost
everywhere.

Except where it mattered.

Head coach Andy Reid and offen-
sive coordinator Marty Mornhin-
weg tinkered with their version of
the West Coast offense, tailoring it
more to Garcia’s skills as a short
passer and scrambler.

Reid handed Mornhinweg the
play-calling duties, and they turned
more to Westbrook — a wise stroke,
because he has been brilliant over the
past two months.

The Eagles defense, particularly a
talented secondary that was under-

achieving, stepped up. So did the»

receiving corps.

Philly swept those three divisional
road games, including a 23-7 manhan-
dling of the Dallas Cowboys that cat-
apulted the Eagles to the top of the
NFC East.

Last week, the Eagles beat the
New York Giants 23-20 on David
Akers’ last-second field goal to
advance to New Orleans. Typically
for this season, they also saw Pro
Bowl cornerback Lito Sheppard dis-
locate his elbow in the victory.

our leadership, our play and our
coaching ability, has been tested this

COLLECTING AWARDS

San Diego Chargers running back
LaDainian Tomlinson and New
Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton
earned more postseason honors
Wednesday, getting awards from the
Maxwell Football Club.

Tomlinson, this year’s NFL MVP,
won the Bert Bell Award as profes-
sional player of the year, and Payton,
already The Associated Press Coach
of the Year, took the coaching award.

Tomlinson set an NEL record with

31 touchdowns this season, rushing

for 1,815 yards and catching 56 passes
to lead the Chargers to a league-best
14-2 record.

Payton, in his first year as Saints
coach, led a remarkable turnaround
in New Orleans. The Saints finished
with a 10-6 record and earned a first-
round bye in the playoffs after finish-
ing 3-13 a year ago.

e Steelers: The team might be
close to choosing Bill Cowher’s suc-
cessor as head coach.

With assistant coaches Russ
Grimm and Ken Whisenhunt the
front-runners, the Steelers wrapped
up their fourth interview in four days
by meeting Wednesday with Vikings
defensive coordinator Mike Tomlin.
If the Steelers have any more inter-
views scheduled, they aren’t saying.

Tomlin is 34, the same age
Cowher was when the Steelers hired
him in 1992. Tomlin is a decided long
shot in Pittsburgh, but he is one of
the NFL’s rising young coaches. He
also interviewed with the Dolphins.

“J don’t see myself as 34,” Tomlin
said. “I just see myself as a football
coach.”

Butler leads Wizards past Bulls

From Miami Herald Wire Services

WASHINGTON — With Gil-
bert Arenas slowed again by Chi-
cago, the Washington Wizards
relied on strong contributions
from Caron Butler, Antonio Dan-
iels and DeShawn Stevenson to
beat the Bulls 13-103 on Wednes-
day night for their seventh con-
secutive home victory.

Arenas didn’t even attempt a
second-half shot until there were
fewer than 6 minutes left in the
game, and he finished 5-for-16 for
20 points — well below his 30.5
average, No. 2 in the NBA.

In a game of back-and-forth
spurts, Washington was up 84-82
with about 7 minutes left. That’s
when Daniels hit a 3-pointer that
opened a 12-0 run for the Wiz-
ards, during which the veteran
guard also scored on a layup and
drew a charge on big Ben Wal-
lace, who argued the call and was
whistled for a technical.

Butler made that free throw,
then scored off the glass for.a
96-82 lead with 42 minutes left.
Chicago never got closer than
seven again.

Butler finished with 26 points
— his seventh game in a row
with at least 20 — along with 10
rebounds and seven assists. Dan-
iels matched his season high
with 15 points, while Stevenson
scored 13, including eight in a
row to start the third quarter.

For the Bulls, who have lost
four of five games, a trio of play-
ers topped 20 points: Kirk Hin-

rich had 33, Ben Gordon scored ©

25 and Andres Nocioni added 20.

BOBCATS 103, PISTONS 96

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. —
Raymond Felton had 18 points
and seven assists to lead six dou-

ble-digit scorers for the
banged-up Bobcats.
Detroit’s Richard Hamilton

scored 23 points before being
ejected with two technical fouis,
called about a minute apart, with
1:04 left because he was com-
plaining to official Ron Olesiak.

i Rasheed Wallace did not start
for Detroit and, this time, Pistons
coach°Flip Saunders said it was

Against Philadelphia on Tues-
day night, Wallace was benched

Blues s nip Devils on Drake goal

From Miami Herald Wire

EAST RUT HERFORD, N.J. — Dallas
Drake scored the go-ahead goal midway
through the second period and Manny
Legace made 24 saves to lead the St. Louis
Blues to a 3-2 victory over the New Jersey
Devils on Wednesday night.

Keith Tkachuk and Dan Hinote also
scored for the Blues, who won their sec-
ond game in two nights, both on the road.
Legace held off the Devils in the third
period, stopping all 13 shots — including
Brian Rafalski’s slap shot through a screen
in the final seconds:

The Blues followed Tuesday’s 4-3
shootout victory in Columbus with a
determined effort in which they twice
overcame one-goal deficits.

After a terrible start to the season, St.
Louis has won eight of its past LL

John Madden and Brian Gionta scored
for the Devils, who had won three in a
row.

SABRES 2, BLACKHAWKS 1

CHICAGO —- Ryan Miller made 34
saves and Jochen Hecht and Maxim Afi-
nogenov scored to lead the Sabres to the
victory over the slumping Blackhawks.

Miller wasn’t heavily tested by sputter-
ing Chicago, which lost its fourth in a row.
He lost a bid for his second shutout of the
season when the Blackhawks’ Denis
Arkhipov scored a short-handed goal with
49.1 seconds left in the third.

The Sabres improved to 7-2-1 in their
past 10 with their second consecutive vic-
tory,

They have 65 points, tied with Ana-
heim for the league lead.

Buffalo center Chris Drury returned
midway through the second period after
leaving the game when he was struck in
the leg by a puck at 7:54 of the first period.

Drury was standing in front of the Chi-
cago net during a Buffalo power play and
was knocked down by Chicago defense-
man Duncan Keith.

After Drury got back to his feet, team-
mate Jaroslav Spacek’s drive from the
right point hit him in the leg.

Keith then cross-checked Drury after
he was struck by the puck.

Drury, who has 22 goals and 19 assists
in 41 games, hobbled off the ice with the
help of two teammates and went directly
to the Sabres’ dressing room.

SAVING THE DAY: Blues goaltender
Manny Legace makes one of his
24 saves during Wednesday night’s
3-2 victory over the host Devils.

PANTHERS 5, PENGUINS 2

SUNRISE, Fla. — Olli Jokinen scored
three goals to help the Panthers beat the
Penguins,

It was Jokinen’s third career hat trick
and his second this season. Jozef Stumpel
and Martin Gelinas each had a goal and
two assists for Florida, which improved to
4-0-1 in its past five at home.

The Panthers have won 14 of their past
15 against Pittsburgh, including a 2-0 mark
this season.

Evgeni Malkin and Colby Armstrong
scored for Pittsburgh, which has lost
three in a row after winning three i ina
row.

ELSEWHERE

e Maple Leafs: The team claimed
center Travis Green off waivers from the
Anaheim Ducks,

Green had one goal and one assist in
seven games for Anaheim this season,

It’s Green’s second stint in Toronto.
He had 23 goals and 35 assists with the
Leafs from 2001-03. He had 10 goals and 12

assists in 82 games with Boson last sea-
son...

Green has 455 career points in 946 reg-
wlar-season games with Anaheim, Boston,
Toronto, Phoenix and the New York
Islanders.

The Leafs needed a forward because
Mike Peca (broken leg), Darcy Tucker
(foot), Kyle Wellwood (groin), Alexei
Ponikarovsky (shoulder) and Nik Antro-
pov (sprained ankle) are sidelined.

The Leafs also announced that
defenseman Ian White will be out three-
to-four weeks after sustaining a mild
shoulder separation in the second period
of Toronto’s 4-1 loss Tuesday night to the
Carolina Hurricanes.

e Flyers: Captain Peter Forsberg is
expected back in the lineup tonight
against the Montreal Canadiens. Fors-
berg, who missed four games with a groin
injury, skated in practice Wednesday and
announced he’s ready to go.

“Everything’s fine,” he said. “And
hopefully I'll be in the lineup for a while.”

Forsberg has spent the past few days
trying, again, to perfect a skate boot for
his troublesome right ankle, which was
surgically repaired last May. The 33-year-
old Swede has said he believes problems
with his skate caused the groin injury.

e Blues: Goalie Curtis Sanford was
assigned to Peoria of the AHL for a condi-
tioning stint while recovering from a
groin injury.

The Blues also assigned goalie Jason
Bacashihua to Peoria and recalled goalie
Marek Schwarz from the minor league
team. Forward D.J. King was also assigned
to Peoria.

LATE TUESDAY ®

e Flames 3, Wild O: Miikka Kipru-
soff made 26 saves for his 100th career
victory to lead host Calgary.

Byron Ritchie scored for the third con-
secutive game for the Flames.

Daymond Langkow and Mark Gior-
dano also scored for Calgary.

e Red Wings 4, Avalanche 3 (SO):
Henrik Zetterberg and Pavel Datsyuk
scored in the shootout and had a goal
each in regulation, and visiting Detroit
ended a three-game skid.

Robert Lang tied it for Detroit, which
defeated Colorado for the seventh con-
secutive time.

The future looks bright for |
young sporting Bahamians-

T WAS good to see Jan

‘Big Bahama’ Symon-
ette mixing and mingling with
his long-time friends at the
DW Davis playing field on
Sunday.
_ Symonette, a 20-year-old
freshman at the University of
Miami, played in just five
games because of a knee
injury. He’s recuperating and
preparing for his sophomore
season later this year.

The 6-foot-9, 338 pound
offensive linesman stood like a
giant over the spectators on
the sidelines watching the
game.

At least he’s shown that he
hasn’t lost the common touch.

Bahamians should be proud
of him. He certainly has the
potential, once he can stay
injury-free, to become a
household name, not only on
the collegiate scene, but even-
tually at the professional level.

While we have a couple of
players who currently are
playing in the National Foot-
ball League with roots in the
Bahamas, it would be good to
eventually see one who has
spent some time honing his
game in the local league
before making it to the big
league.

Only time will tell as
Symonette deals with the var-
ious challenges as injuries and
a change in the coaching staff
that he experienced as a rook-
ie.
Symonette should only get
better as he develops his skills.
We want to wish him every

MMMM

success as he continues to
make his presence felt at the
University of Miami.

Not too far away Symon-
ette, we have another Bahami-
an holding court.

This time at Barry Univer-
sity. ° '

Alexandria ‘Shaq’ Fernan-
der is enjoying a sensational
senior year for the Buccaneers
as they seek their first NCAA
Division II Sunshine State

Conference title under first

year coach Bill Sullivan.
Sullivan and Sports Infor-



mation Officer Dennis Jezek
had nothing but praise for Fer-
nander. They both feel that
the Buccaneers will go as far
as Fernander can take them.

That says a lot.

Fernander has amassed an
average of 12.3 points and 11.4
rebounds per game. Her point
average has her listed at num-
ber nine in the conference.
She has also produced 13
assists, 12 steals and seven
block shots.

She’s having a dominating
year, according to
Sullivan.

The question is: Can she
emerge to the next'level and
become the first Bahamian to
make it to the Women’s
National Basketball Associa-
tion?

It’s a long shot, but if she
can lead the Bucs to the Con-
ference Championship, she
will definitely have a legiti-
mate shot at becoming a play-
er to be considered, if not in
the draft, in one of the training
camps.

With this being her senior

year, it would be good to see
her ink her name on a profes-
sional contract.
’ We’ve had some Bahami-
ans who came close, but this is
a good opportunity for her to
break the barrier.

Unlike Symonette, who still
has some time to go, Fernan-
der’s time is now.

She’s playing through a
right hand injury and is having
a great season.

Let’s see what the future
holds.

appear in court

& By CHESTER ROBARDS

MIAMI, Florida - Three of the
five Nassau Flight Services bag-
gage handlers arrested in Ft
Lauderdale in December pleaded
not guilty yesterday to charges of
importing 500 grams of cocaine
into the United States between
November 9 and 10, 2006.

Federal prosecutors, present-
ed Duty Magistrate, Judge
Andrea Simonton, with a super-
seding indictment, filed just one
day before yesterday's arraign-
ment, which also charged a fourth
man, Giovanni Munroe. who did
not appear in court, with impor-
tation of cocaine in concert with
the NFS baggage handlers.

Count one of the indictment,
which could carry a maximum
penalty of 40 years exclusive of
fines, restitution, parole terms or
forfeitures, charged the four men
with conspiracy to import cocaine
into the US. And count two,
which could carry the same penal-
ty as the first, charged the men
with the importation of cocaine
into the US,

Lester Bain, 29, Delvino Rigby,
26, and Marcus Rolle, 22, all went

before Judge Simonton of the US
District Court in downtown Mia-
mi in courtroom XI, located
directly opposite the courtroom in
which Samuel “Ninety” Knowles
made his second arraignment
appearance.

Judge Simonton read the two
counts of the indictment to the
accused, which stated that the
four men “did knowingly and
intentionally import into the Unit-
ed States, from a place outside
thereof, a controlled substance
~- it is further alleged that this
violation involved 500 grams or
more of a mixture and substance
containing a detectable amount
of cocaine.”

The three men’s attorneys, one
after the other, entered pleas of
not guilty, waived formal reading
of the indictment, asked for a tri-
al by jury and asked that standing
discovery orders be filed.

Judge Simonton entered the
pleas and agreed to the terms of
trial, reading of the indictments
and signing of the standing dis-
covery order. She then informed
the men that they would make

Man stabbed to death

A MAN was stabbed to death in Harbour Island yesterday
during an argument that police say may have stemmed from a

domestic dispute.

The victim is said to be from Eleuthera and in his late for-

ties. j

This latest tragedy raises the number of murders this year to
three. A.second man was also stabbed during the incident. He
is said to be in his mid-thirties and also from Eleuthera.

That man is expected to be airlifted to New Providence for
treatment. Two persons are reportedly being questioned by

on the controversy over the
independence of the judi-
ciary yesterday, stating that
the concept is not to be
used by judges “to inflate
their sense. of self-impor-
tance”.

He said that the “rhetor-
ical excesses” on the sub-
ject that have entered -the
public domain over the last
few months have obscured
the fact that the ideal of
judicial independence
evolved “for the protection
of each member of soci-
ety”.

According to the chief
justice, “. .. except for in
the most primitive or total-
itarian societies, no one
seriously challenges the
basal notion that the judi-
cial officer —- whether a law
lord sitting in the Privy
Council or a lay magistrate
sitting in Mayaguana —
should render decisions
fairly and without being
improperly influenced by
any other person or agency
whether representing pub-
lic or private interests."

The majority rule story
‘must not be forgotten’

THE story of how majority rule
came about is one that should be
known and must not be forgot-

ten, Minister of Foreign Affairs:

Fred Mitchell told Rotarians yes-
terday.

"This isan important date in
the history of our country. It was
the first time that all Bahamians
of full age, then 21, and without
any requirement for property or
tenancy, could vote to elect their
government. That vote took place
on LOth January 1967," Mr
Mitchell said.

“The story of this day and how
we came to be here should be
told, should be known. It was not

easy and must not be forgotten.
But it is still only part of a con-
tinuing story of our march toward

development as a people. There

is more to come.

“The story will be enhanced
and grow larger than life if those
who come behind us embrace the
struggle of those who went before
us,” Minister Mitchell said.

Majority. rule meant that “the
African majority were able to
assert their humanity and their
right to lead the country.

File on D

death to be forwarded
magistrate

to chief

@ By ALISON LOWE
Tribune Staff Reporter

THE police file on the inves-
tigation into the death of 20-

year-old Daniel Smith, son of

US celebrity Anna Nicole Smith
will soon be in the hands of
Chief Magistrate Roger Gomez,
it was revealed yesterday.

Attorney General Allyson
Maynard-Gibson said the file
has been sent by her office to
the police, “to be forwarded to
the chief magistrate who has to
decide if there will be an
inquest.”

Mrs Maynard-Gibson made
this statement following a
request for an update on the
status of the investigation into
Daniel Smith’s sudden death in
a Doctors' Hospital room in the
early hours of September 9,
2006.

His death was determined by
US pathologist Dr Cyril Wecht
to have been caused by the
effects of a “lethal cocktail” of
prescription drugs, including
methadone, a heroin substitute.

Several weeks ago, The Tri-
bune was informed by Assistant
Commissioner of Police Regi-
nald Ferguson that it was the
Office of the Attorney General
— rather than Chief Magistrate
Gomez — that would make the
final decision on the question
of whether there would be an
inquest into Smith's death.

Queried last month as to
what the status of the case was,
Mrs Maynard-Gibson first said
that she was “waiting for
advice” on the matter from
someone in her office.

When asked again for an
update, she said “the matter of
the investigation is not com-
plete.”

The Tribune was previously
informed by police that they
had finished with the investiga-
tion and had forwarded the file.

Mob" began an online petition
calling on the Bahamas govern-
ment to set a date for an
inquest.

According to a leading jurist,
in cases of "sudden death" such
as Daniel Smith's, in which no
one is criminally charged, hold-
ing an inquest is a “matter of
policy and procedure.”

The jurist said it is protocol
that a jury decide whether the
death of any individual who dies
under unnatural circumstances
was "an accident, a suicide or
a case of misadventure."

Speaking more than a month
ago, the jurist added that time
was “running out” for such a
judgment to be made on the
death of Smith, as the courts
were due to close on Decem-
ber 15 of last year.

As more time passes, the
jurist said, it becomes more like-
ly that evidence will be lost.

In September 2006, an Octo-
ber 23 date was set for the
inquest to be held by former
head coroner Linda Virgill.

However, Chief Magistrate
Gomez declared that Ms Vir-
gill had acted “prematurely” in

setting such a date, and had
failed to follow procedure.

Ms Virgill was reassigned
shortly after, and in an unex-
pected move, Chief Justice Bur-
ton Hall disbanded the sole
coroner's court — reverting to a
system by which all 13 magis-
trates can act as coroners — after
it was claimed that a large num-
ber of complaints were received
from members of the public
who have been waiting for years
for inquests into their loved
one's deaths. *

Shortly after Smith’s death,
Dr Wecht pronounced that he
had three drugs — anti-depres-
sants Zoloft and Lexapro, along
with methadone — in his body
when he died.

These drugs were said to have
combined in Daniel's system,
eventually having a devastating
suppressive effect on his heart.

Dr Wecht later revealed that
other drugs — another anti-
depressant, Amitriptyline, as
well as two over-the-counter
cold medicines, and one "mild"
over-the-counter sedative -
were also in Smith’s system but
played no part in his death.

dispute is
‘filed with ministry

over Baha Mar

lm By ALEXANDRIO
MORLEY
Tribune Staff Reporter

A TRADE dispute between
the Baha Mar Development
Company and the Bahamas
Hotel Managerial Association
has been officially filed at the
Ministry of Immigration,
Labour and Training, The Tri-
bune has learned.

The Tribune received a
stamped copy of the trade dis-
pute report yesterday after-
noon.

The document reads: “Notice
is hereby given that you: Baha
Mar Development Company
and Bahamas Hotel Manageri-
al Association are required to
attend a conciliation meeting

:- 10am in the morning of January

12, 2007, Conference Room,
Department of Labour,
Clarence A Bain Building, New
Providence, Bahamas.”

On December 19, 2006, Mr
Obie Ferguson, president of
BHMaA, threatened the Baha
Mar group with possible indus-
trial action if it refused to pay
managers and supervisors the
Christmas bonus he claimed
was owed to them. However,

: Baha Mar’s vice president of

administration and external
affairs, Robert "Sandy" Sands,

: insisted that the workers were

not owed any additional money.

Mr Ferguson said the associ-
ation, the executives of Baha
Mar and the labour minister
were scheduled to meet to dis-
cuss the matter. However, he
claimed, the executives of Baha
Mar failed to attend the meeting.

Mr Ferguson claimed that on
September 25, 1996 a contractu-
al agreement was signed and in





that agreement one of the provi-
sions was that each worker rep-
resented by the bargaining unit
would be entitled to two weeks’
pay as a Christmas bonus.

The trade union president
said that Baha Mar’s CEO
Don Robinson and Mr Sands
are obligated to honour the
industrial agreement.

Mr Ferguson also accused
Baha Mar executives of trying
to provoke the workers into
industrial action.

"On December 14, 2006 they
unilaterally reduced the con-
tractual two weeks bonus of
each worker to one week. That
must be evidence of provoca-
tion," Mr Ferguson said.

Mr Ferguson said that clause
13.6 of the industrial agreement
states that any employee enjoy-
ing better conditions than those
contained in the agreement
shall continue to enjoy the
same wherever those conditions
exists by contract between the
Hotel Corporation and the
employees. (In 2003, the Hotel
Corporation still owned the
Radisson Resort, which is now

® BAHA Mar - an artist’s impression

owned by Baha Mar).

However, Mr Sands con-
tended that clause 22.1 of the
agreement overpowers that
clause.

Clause 22.1 states that it is
mutually agreed that the
employees covered by the
agreement will receive two
weeks pay as a Christmas
bonus to be paid no later than
the second pay period in
December provided that the
hotel is reflecting a gross oper-
ating profit in that year.

"The management team at
the Radisson is not entitled to
an automatic bonus,” said Mr
Sands.

The Industrial Relations Act
requires the Minister of Labour
to attempt to settle trade dis-
putes by means of conciliation,
but the act also requires the
minister to refer the matter to
the Industrial Tribunal if the
parties are unable to secure a
settlement after a specific peri-
od of time has passed.

A refusal to attend the meet-
ing could result in a fine not
exceeding $5,000.

Toddler’s family seeks
manslaughter

A FAMILY whose son was
killed by a speedboat in the
Bahamas wants police to
charge the. driver with
manslaughter after drugs were
allegedly found in his body,
according to the British news
service Kentnews.

The two-year-old boy, who
was struck by the vessel as he
slept near his mother on a Par-
adise Island beach, died five
days later in hospital.

Over the weekend, it was
alleged that the driver of the
boat that killed Paul Gallagher
was using marijuana.

Paul died five days after the
accident from head injuries,
described by surgeons as the
worst they had ever seen.

His father Paul, 42, and
mother Andrea, 40, from Orp-
ington, Kent, hit out at the
Bahamas government for fail-
ing to prosecute whoever might
have been responsible for their

son's death.

Two Metropolitan Police
officers flew to the Bahamas
last summer to review the case
with local police.

Their report reveals that
after the crash, the driver pro-
vided blood and urine samples.
The Gallaghers were told these
were never tested at the time.

When the samples were test-
ed by the British team, they
showed that the driver’s blood
contained 5.1 nanograms of
carboxy-tetrahydrocannabinol
(THC), an active ingredient in
marijuana plants.

‘The Bahamian police claim
that while this indicated the
driver had been using cannabis,
it did not mean that his ability
to drive or control the boat was
impaired.

However, the new report
warns that the samples may
have deteriorated since 2002
because of the way they were

charge

stored and the readings may
have been higher at the time
they were taken.

So far the driver has escaped
any serious prosecution fol-
lowing the death of little Paul
from Orpington, who was
enjoying a holiday with his par-
ents four years ago.

Paul’s family want the dri-
ver tried for at least the
manslaughter of their young
son, who was hit by the boat
as he lay sleeping on a sunbed.

It was claimed the powerful
speedboat was out of control
at the time.

The young boy’s father, also
called Paul, 42, and mother
Andrea, 40, say they are furi-
ous the police have not pressed
charges following the tests.

"We are devastated. We
want the investigation to be re-
opened and will not stop” until
there is justice.

Fallout from PLP’s poor decisions:

IN ASSESSING the achievements and social
setbacks 40 years after majority rule, a young
leader of the Bahamas’ newest political party
blamed today’s social disintegration on the
PLP government’s decision to turn a blind eye
to the scourge of drugs.

Ata PLP convention 23 years after leading
the country into majority rule on January 10,
1967, Sir Lynden admitted that he got it wrong.
He complained bitterly about Bahamian atti-
tudes — particularly among Bahamian men.

“We told them that they were too good to be
gardeners, too good to be sanitation men, too
good to work with their hands,” he said.

It was Sir Lynden himself who equated suc-
cess with being a millionaire. In those days
becoming a millionaire by the shortest route
possible was the goal of many Bahamian youth.

“IT wish to say this,” Sir Lynden told
Bahamians, highlighting farmers, cab drivers,
waiters and maids, in a televised New Year's
day message, “all that my streamlined cabinet
can do is to provide the million dollar oppor-
tunity, only you can make you a millionaire. If
you choose not to take advantage of the oppor-
tunities provided and get distracted by the
noise in the market, it will be nobody" s fault
but yours.’

At the October 31, 1990 PLP convention he
told party members that he had an admission
to make

“As a great grandson of a slave I told many
of my brothers many of those things myself
(that they would no longer be “hewers of wood
and drawers of water”). At that time I was
trying to elevate their goal. I wanted to spare
them some pain and some suffering. But, I
didn’t know then what I know now, that any
work breeds character. Too many young men
lack character today, too many. too often shirk
responsibility because they have never been
held accountable for their actions at home, in
school or in society. Therein may he the heart
of the problem.”

Sir Lynden said he thought that “indepen-
dence and self-determination would help cre-
ate an environment where a new generation of
young men would emerge brimming with self
confidence and ready to take their place in
this new and more equitable society we were
creating.

“T had hoped,” he continued, “that the
effects of that inhumane legacy would have
been readily alleviated and everyone would
have been able to rise as high as their skills and
motivations could take them.

“But, regrettably, as we enter the 1990s, this
great hope remains unrealised,” he said.

The commission of inquiry into drugs had

just concluded. Bahamians had to face the fact
that they had been riding high on narco-dollars
and during this soul-destroying period had lost
their sense of values.

It was Arthur Hanna — now governor-gen-
eral, then deputy prime minister — who fully
understood that the country and its people
were lost if an example were not set by its
leaders after the damning drug smuggling
report.

He said he urged Sir Lynden to join him in
resigning his post after the commission report
and the two of them assist the PLP in choosing
new leadership.

“We cannot and must not allow all that we
have worked for, stood for and achieved to
go down the drain through and by the selfish
acts of a small clique who operate for their
own ends at the expense of us and our coun-
try,” Mr Hanna told the PLP’s 30th national
convention.

He said that they had to come to grips with
the effects of the evidence of the 1983 Com-
mission of Inquiry into drug trafficking and
related corruption on “the unity and solidari-
ty of this organisation.”

He said that a leader or deputy leader “must
have the unqualified confidence of almost all of
his colleagues.” It was for this reason, he said,
that under the circumstances he felt that he and
Sir Lynden should resign. Mr Hanna resigned.
Sir Lynden decided to brazen it through. The
Commission report exposed wrongdoing. Soci-
ety suffered because, although there was much
wrong; there was no punishment. No exam-
ples were set.

“This party,” said Mr Hanna, “must at some
stage demand that Bahamians be redeemed
from political dishonesty and corruption,
redeemed from lawlessness, neglect, unem-
ployment, hopelessness, despair and criminal-
ity.

“We who are in the PLP have an awesome
responsibility to ensure that our movement is
not sacrificed upon the altar of selfishness,
greed, arrogance and the mistaken belief that,
right or wrong, the Bahamian people will stick
with and continue to support us.”

Redemption never came, and today society
suffers the fall-out.

George Smith, who was one of those hum-
bled in the Commission report, has been crit-
icised for his comments this week on the
motives of some PLP MP’s in seeking high
office.

Mr Smith knows whereof he speaks. It would
do well for the PLP to take his advice and be
more selective in their candidates for this elec-
tion.

FNM and Ingraham
have to accept the
blame for Royal Oasis’

EDITOR, The Tribune.

I WAS amazed that the
leader of the FNM had
now tried to place the
blame that the Royal Oasis
Hotel and Casino debacle
was the blame of bad
administration of the pre-
sent Christie government.

Mr Ingraham has a very,
very short memory for
starters what experience
did Driftwood Hotels have
in operating such a hotel?
What experience did Drift-
wood have in operating a
casino?

Was the closure of Royal
Oasis directly connected to
when the late Sir Freddie
Laker stopped his gam-
bling junkets to Royal
Oasis, allegedly because
Royal Oasis owed him
money?

Royal Oasis is not on a

beach — is in the middle
of nowhere and no one
seems to understand this.
All around the hotel was
run down for years.

I do agree that the Casi-
no licence should have
been taken a long time ago
as Lehmann Bros should
not be permitted to specu-
late or get an advantage
because there is a valid
casino licence on the hotel
in this case because so
many in Freeport are still
owed by Driftwood and
ultimately Lehmann Bros.

Sad, but it is true, if

Edward St George were
‘alive this mess would never

have happened — one or

two telephone calls to his
contacts in New York and
bush crack someone with
the money would have
acquired this property
although let’s be honest,
the hotel is just in the
wrong location.

The FNM under Rt Hon
Hubert Ingraham have to
accept the blame for the
Royal Oasis as it was under
their administration that
Driftwood came to own it
and now just a few years
later all three of their
Bahamas hotels have been
sold-off and Driftwood is
no longer in The Bahamas
— surely that says a lot and
confirms why the FNM and
Mr Ingraham are to blame.

National lottery
should be
debated by govt

EDITOR, The Tribune.

THE Government of the Bahamas
should be debating the idea of imple-
menting a national lottery in the Bahamas.
75 per cent of the Bahamian people are
ready to support a NHI lottery regulated
by the government.

From these lotteries the government will
receive all of the funds it needs to manage
the Bahamas’ health care and education,
etc.

We don’t need to do any major research.
It’s at work now in The Bahamas and
working well.

Most countries have an NHI lottery.
South Florida has one and every state in
America has one.

And it isn’t compulsory that one has to
play.

By implementing a national lottery the
Government will also be stamping out
crime. As we all know, crime is a very
serious matter.

those Bahamian workers who have pri-
vate health insurance should be allowed to
continued with them.

For those who cannot afford to pay for
their own health care the Government
would then pay for their care from monies
collected from the NHI lottery which will
lessen the burden placed upon our gov-
ernment.

Now I understand the churches in The
Bahamas don’t want the government to
implement these lotteries which are being
run by private groups.

I feel that all God-fearing Bahamians
should support the government if it
decides one day to implement a lottery in
The Bahamas. This is another alternative
that the Bahamian people of all ages
understand.

oO ln brief

message.
to his
constituents

MINISTER of Works and
Utilities Bradley Roberts
gave a heart-felt address
about his constituents dur-
ing yesterday’s sitting of the
House of Assembly.

Mr Roberts began by
wishing all MPs a happy new
year, and encouraged his
constituents in Bain Town
and Grant’s Town to stick
with him — noting the forth-
coming next general election.

“J rise with the greatest joy
and in deepest humility on
behalf of the people of Bain
and Grant’s town whom for
decades now have sent me
here to represent their needs,
their hopes, dreams and aspi-
rations.

“They have elected me
also to lead, sometimes hav-
ing to come out from among
them and having to stand
upon their shoulders in
hopes of seeing the way for-
ward so that I may lead them
to higher heights.

“As in any relationship
worth having, the journey
together has not always been
smooth but through good
times and bad, in happy
times and sad, in season and
out of season, Mr Speaker I
and my constituents have
always emerged in the sere-
nade of that song by Al
Green, “Let’s stay together,
loving you whether, times
are good or bad happy or
sad”. Yes we ought to stay
together,” he said.

During his communication
on the 40th anniversary of

Majority Rule Day, Minister .

of Works Bradley Roberts
reminded parliament of the
peaceful manner in which
freedom and equality was
achieved in the Bahamas.

“Tt is described as the qui-
et revolution, specifically
because in the 20 years lead-
ing up to the 1967, very little
blood had been shed in pur-
suit of justice and equality.
No Mr Speaker, in this coun-
try. which historically has not
known much of violence,
what others fought wars
over, and some got assassi-
nated for, we achieved with a
stroke on a ballot. I often say
Mr Speaker in the words of
men before me that our bal-
lots were our bullets.

“This example of civility
entrenched in Bahamian cul-
tue is one I wish we could
somehow impress upon
younger generations, that in
times gone by, even when
being denied fundamental
rights and freedoms, Mr
Speaker, we were men and
women of stellar worth, of
sterling character who raised
our voices and our hearts but
never our fists. Because, we
are a peculiar people by
nature, Mr Speaker, a peace-
ful people,” he said.

Mr Roberts expressed how
sorry he is that “in our not
adequately passing on the
lessons of our glorious past,
we have also to date failed
in educating some of our
sons and daughters on the
fact that being Bahamian
means more than conch sal-
ad and peas and rice, and
even junkanoo but it means
that we are of a tradition of
community mindedness,
peaceful coexistence, and
brotherly and sisterly love.”

TWO armed robbers got
away with almost $900 after
holding up a supermarket on
Tuesday night.

Making a clean getaway, the
perpetrators fled the scene ina
black Nissan Sentra, according
to police press liaison officer
Walter Evans.

Just after 7pm, the two
unidentified men entered Super
Value on Baliou Road and
Poinciana Avenue.

Christopher Charlton, the
store manager, who was on duty
at the time of the robbery,
described what happened.

He said operations were
going on as normal when a man
came in with a black jacket
pulled up to his eyes and shout-
ed, “Nobody move!”

The jacket was covering his
face and only his eyes were vis-
ible, the manager explained.

In response to the outburst,
some persons laughed. “We
took it as a joke,” Mr Charlton
said.

However moments later,
when the other robber entered,
the customers and staff realised
that it was no laughing matter.

“Two seconds later, this oth-
er guy came in there with a
black handgun and a black ski
mask covering his face. They
did what they had to do and
they left,” he said.

Emptying the two cash reg-
isters that were open at the
time, the men got away with
$859, according to Mr Charl-
ton.

One person was dressed in a
black jacket and the other had
on a camouflage jacket, Inspec-
tor Evans reported.

After the robbery, the two

Super Value customers stunned
as masked men empty register



men fled in a heavily tinted
vehicle and travelled east on
Poinciana Avenue.

When asked about the reac-
tion of the customers and staff
to the robbery, Mr Charlton
said the incident happened so
quickly that no one had time to
move.

“Only a few customers were
in the store and everyone just
was quiet. The robbery did not
last long .. . it took about eight
to 10 seconds and it was fin-
ished. So it didn’t really hit any-
one until after the guys left,”
he said.

After the robbery, the man-
agement immediately closed the
store and contacted the police.

Customers who were already
in the store were allowed to
purchase their items but other
potential customers were barred
from entering, the manager
said.

Mr Charlton, who was very
happy with the speedy response
to his emergency call, said: “As
soon as I radioed that we need-
ed police, in about two minutes
they were here.”

The police were so punctual
that the manager said he is not
very concerned about future
robberies.

However, he did say that
tighter security measures will
be implemented to dissuade
anyone else from trying to rob
the store in future andito pro-
tect the staff and customers.

Anglican Communion after the
events in America surrounding
Rever Gene Robinson's conse-
eration.

LOCAL NEWS

The proposal for the
Covenant was made as part of
the Windsor Report, produced
by the Lambeth Commission.

Archbishop Gomez said the
reason for the Covenant was to
suggest a way in which the
member churches in the Angli-
can Communion could meet as
members of the worldwide
Communion and agree to “be
committed one to the other and
held accountable one to the oth-
er.”

Dr Williams appointed the
special Covenant group to meet
and submit some suggestions as
to what a Covenant would look
like to be presented to the
worldwide Anglican Commu-
nion for adoption.

The committee will meet in
Nassau from January 15 to 19.

"What we hope to do," said
Archbishop Gomez “‘is to start
work on a formula which we
would share with the Archbish-
ops of the Communion at the
Archbishops’ meeting, which
will be held in Tanzania in the
middle of February.

“Hopefully, we would have
something to present to the
Lambeth Conference in the
sumnier‘of 2008.”

Bahamas in Prophesy’s apocalyptic
warning against Roberts’ memorial

mm By ALEXANDRIO MORLEY
Tribune Staff Reporter



A SMALL civic group is con-
demnping government's plan to
erecta monument at the site of
the Southern Recreation
Ground to celebrate the “strug-
ele and victory” of Black
Rahamians over oppression.

Bahamas in Prophecy (BIP),
a non-profit organisation, held a
press conference on ‘Tuesday in

declared their views on the pro-
posed monument.

Roberts said that the memorial
would take the form of some-
thing “inanimate, like an
obelisk, in recognition of the
very central place that the
Southern Recreation Ground
has played throughout its 170-
year history in the struggle of
the masses of Bahamians to
free themselves; the monument
will be a memorial to all free-
dom fighters, named and
unnamed.”

According to BIP: “We
absolutely condemn this type
of monument because the origin
of this monument is not of the
Almighty God.”

“This monument was origi-
nated in the land of Egypt and
was and still is considered the
chief pillar of Idol worship in
the nations. The Egyptians
believed that the Sun God Ra
dwells in the obelisk.

“In the Bible the obelisk is

Almighty God told the children
of Israel that when they come
into the land that they should
not erect nor bow down to these
standing images.”

The Southern Recreational
Ground was a central gather-
ing spot for black Bahamians
from its establishment during
the emancipation era to the
achievement of Majority Rule
in 1967, and may have played
host to 19th-century freedom
fighters such as Prince William,



Stephen Dillet, Robert Love,
Wilfred Campbell Adderley,
William Parliament Adderley,
and others.

In the 20th century, the
grounds hosted such luminar-

is erected on this site, {he nation

Bahamas
says no to

CARICOM
cricket visa

THE Bahamas government
is saying no to a Special Visa
arrangement as CARICOM
countries prepare for the ICC
Cricket World Cup.

The CARICOM Special
Visa, which will be enforced
from February 1 to May 15,
2007, is being implemented to
ensure ease of travel within the
region for all visitors.

Leonard Archer, the
Bahamas’ high commissioner to
CARICOM, says the visa
arrangement does not apply to
the Bahamas

“The countries who are host-
ing cricket matches agreed to
issue one visa which would
apply to all of the countries who
are hosting games,” Archer
explained.

He emphasised that the
Bahamas did not choose to be a
part of the plan.

The special visa arrangements
will apply to all visitors for any
purpose to any of 10 CARI-
COM countries.

Nationals of all countries
except for Canada, France, Ger-
many, Japan, Ireland, Italy,

_ South Africa, Spain, the Nether-

" lands, the United Kingdom and
dependent territories, United
States and dependent territo-
ries, and nationals and residents
of CARICOM member states
will require the CARICOM
Special Visa to enter what will
be called the “Single Domestic
Space”.

Hugo Chavez
starts new

six-year term
in Venezuela-

@ VENEZUELA
Caracas

INVOKING Christ and Cas-
tro as his socialist models, Pres-
ident Hugo Chavez began his
third term Wednesday by
declaring that socialism, not
capitalism, is the only way for-
ward for Venezuela and the
world, according to Associated
Press.

His first stop: Nicaragua,
where leftist ally Daniel Ortega
was returning to power with his
own inauguration hours later.
Chavez is now set to remain
president until 2013 — or later if
he gets his way with a constitu-
tional amendment allowing him
to run again.

At the apex of a resurgent
Latin American left, Chavez has
been emboldened to make
more radical changes at home
after winning re-election with
63 per cent of the vote, his
widest margin ever.

His next moves include
nationalising electrical and
telecommunications companies,
forming a commission to over-
see constitutional reforms and
asking the National Assembly,
now entirely controlled by his
supporters, to allow him to
enact “revolutionary laws” by
presidential decree.

His right hand raised
Wednesday, Chavez declared
in words reminiscent of Fidel
Castro’s famous call-to-arms:
“Fatherland, socialism or death
— I swear it.” He also alluded
to Jesus: “I swear by Christ —

the greatest socialist in histo-

ry.”
In a speech, he said the cen-
tral aim of his term will be “to
build Venezuelan socialism.”

“T don’t have the slightest
doubt that is the only path to
the redemption of our peoples,
the salvation of our fatherland,”
Chavez told lawmakers to
applause.

Chavez’s re-election capped a
series of Latin American presi-
dential votes, and his closest
ideological allies were all gath-
ering Wednesday in Managua.
Also on Ortega’s guest list were
Ecuador’s Rafael Correa and
Bolivia’s Evo Morales. Acting
Cuban leader Raul Castro sent
a high-level delegation.

Chavez said a commission
was being assembled to consid-
er constitutional reforms to be
decided in a popular consulta-
tion, including one allowing
“indefinite re-election” by doing

away with presidential term lim-

its that bar him from running
again in 2012.

“The important thing is that
the people will make the deci-
sion, because nothing can be
done without that here,”
Chavez said, dismissing criti-
cism that he is becoming
authoritarian or trying to
change Venezuela into some-
thing like Castro’s Cuba.

The future looks bright for
the Bahamian economy
according to Prime Minister
Perry Christie.

Speaking at the Bahamas
Business Outlook annual sem-
inar this week, he said this
view is based on the fact that
the International Monetary
Fund projected that growth
will continue to accelerate —
reaching 6.5 per cent for the
fiscal year 2006/07 and 6.7 per
cent for 2007/08.

Moreover, he said, the Cen-
tral Bank reported that the
Bahamian economy has
“maintained positive momen-
tum supported by strong con-
sumer demand which stimu-
lated robust growth in private
sector credit and sustained the
expansion in construction
activity.”

Mr Christie linked the good
news to success in attracting
investment projects in almost
every Family Island.

“This positive growth has
also arisen from careful stew-
ardship of this economic
expansion the likes of which
are without precedent,” he
said. “This projected volume
of inward investment is at least
$8 billion over the next few
years.”

The Business Outlook was
held under the theme: ‘Oppor-
tunities, Plans and Anticipated
Outcomes’ which the prime
minister referred to as both
appropriate and timely.

“It is appropriate in the

picture of Bahamas

sense that 2007 represents a
watershed year both political-
ly and economically for the
Bahamas. It is timely because
this forum comes at the begin-
ning of the year,” he said.

Mr Christie reflected on
2006, which he dubbed “an
economically banner year for
the Bahamas”.

Over the past four years, the
government noted in a release
yesterday, more than 430 for-
eign investment projects were
submitted to the minister of
Financial Services and Invest-
ments. Of that number it said,
53 projects with a total com-
bined value of $13 billion are
under varying states of con-
struction

NHI planners soon to
announce strategy

THE planners of the Nation-
al Health Insurance scheme say
a “strategic plan” will be
announced in a matter of days
as preparations begin for regu-
lations to accompany the legis-
lation passed last month.

The Act establishing NHI
was unanimously passed in the
Senate on December 20, 2006.

National Health Insurance
implementation project man-
ager, Stanley Lalta, confirmed
that “we have a strategic plan
which we are going to be
rolling out.”

This, he said, will include
consultations with doctors and
other healthcare providers in
devising a comprehensive
package on payments and
management of the scheme.

Mr Lalta said that with
regards to the necessary regu-
lations to accompany the act,
legal professionals will have
to be consulted on drafting
procedures.

“And, of course, while all of
that is being done, there is oth-
er work that the director and I

will have to do because we want
to put an information technol-
ogy system in place, and then
we need to register people.”

He noted that the act facili-
tates much of the work that
the implementation project
seeks to do.

“We have a strategic plan
which we are going to be
rolling out over the next few
months and all of these activ-
ities will be a part of that
plan,” he said. “So we are giv-
ing ourselves a six-month cut-
off time to get all of these
things in order.”

Mr Lalta said he is pleased
that the NHI bill was passed in
Parliament.

“I think it is very helpful
that we have the bill because
the bill sets the tone estab-
lishing the seriousness of the
government to act,” he said.

“Now that it is on the books,
it provides an agency to every-
one to put the system in place
and to know that they have to
interact. I think it is very essen-
tial that we have the act.”

“Our challenge is to get resi-
dents of this island to accept the
responsibility to protect our rep-
utation, our security and our
stability,” the prime minister
said, referring to New Provi-
dence.

W HAT would ordi-
narily be a good

economy for Grand Bahama?
Put differently, if Grand
Bahama’s economy was good,
what would be its characteristic
features? The answer is that
there would be:

e Falling unemployment and
low unemployment, say seven
per cent or lower, resulting from
robust job creation;

e Steady personal and house-
hold income growth arising
from profitable business opera-
tions;

e High hotel occupancy rates,
especially during the peak sea-
son, of more than 80 per cent
coupled with par or above par

_ room rates;

¢ Reasonable inward foreign
direct investment within the
hotel and industrial sectors of
the economy;

e An expanding domestic
business sector in response to
strong international and local
consumer demand that is itself
resulting from reasonable lev-
els of disposable income;

e A robust construction sec-
tor fuelled by both domestic
and commercial construction
representing a combination of
both good access to credit as
well as strong savings;

e A contained rising cost of
living; and

e Contained interest rates
that fuel reasonable levels of
consumer and commercial bor-
rowing.

|: this Grand Bahama’s sit-
uation today? It is not.
What is now and has been hap-
pening are the following:

¢ Unemployment, according

after rising for the last several
years from 6.4 per cent in 2002
to 11 per cent in 2005, has only
this year dropped to 8.4 per cent
but for all the wrong reasons.
Unemployment is lower
because there are more “dis-
couraged workers” and work-
ers who have had to leave the
island in search of jobs else-
where.

The reality is that there are
some 70 per cent more persons
unemployed today than there
were four years ago (1,610 to
2,300);

e Personal and household
income is stagnant, at least
according the latest numbers
available; in 2003 the median
household income was $30,354,
in 2004 it was $30,820, an
increase of 1.5 per cent. Inter-
estingly, the mean household
income in that period decreased
by 3.8 per cent and inflation
averaged about two per cent;

e Hotel occupancy rates have
been up and down but in the
most recent times have been
exceptionally low, below 30 per
cent. Of course we add to this

\ \ | hat accounts for this
state of affairs in

Grand Bahama’s economy? I
believe a combination of things,
including:

1) A less than optimal work-
ing relationship between the
Grand Bahama Port Authority
and the government of the day;

2) A hijacking of the devel-
opment mindset anticipated by
the Hawksbill Creek Agree-
ment;

3) A less than dynamic
tourism product and a flawed

promotional policy;

4) The consequences of hur-
ricanes Jeanne and Frances; and

5) Too little global outreach
by businesses within this juris-
diction.

What is to be done about
Grand Bahama’s situation? We

‘must stop thinking how we have

been thinking and stop doing
what we have been doing. We
must:

1) Move the government out
of the approval process of the
GBPA, except in clearly
defined areas, respecting the
tenets of the Hawksbill Creek
Agreement;

2) The principals of the Port
must adopt a development
mindset that places their
prospects for profits on the suc-

cess of the body of its licensees”

as opposed to its ability to
extract profits from the essential
services it provides to them;

3) Make entertainment and
attractions the central theme of
our tourism development focus
going forward and promote
now the jurisdiction in a more
robust way;

4) Better shield ourselves
from the consequences of nat-
ural disasters; and

5) Develop strategic alliances
with business interests outside
of The Bahamas both for selling
to and buying from.

Despite all, I am optimistic
about Grand Bahama’s future. I
believe that change will come
and when it does it will be for
the better of this island.

THE PRIME MINISTER’S

ANCHOR PROJECTS
ILLUSION

W hat the Prime Min-
ister calls his gov-

*

Pe ee NAG

ernment’s “anchor projects pol-
icy” is a farce. It lacks the vision,
strategy and evaluative credi-
bility. The fact is that it is really
the political adoption of a lazy
leader who rides behind a curve.

Large tourism developments
heavily influencing the eco-
nomic fortunes of islands of The
Bahamas have been our devel-
opment model for some 60-plus
years.

Just because no-one decided
to put a term to it like “anchor
development policy” does not
mean that it was not just that. In
fact, no other leader would have
put the term to it because they
would not have wanted to
define themselves in such an
unenlightened fashion.

At a time when Bahamians
crave diversification of the
economy to buffer themselves
from the external shocks often
attendant to a single engine
economy, an enlightened per-
son would not be placing the
economic stability and fortunes
of any island on a single mega,
more often than not, tourism
project.

That is precisely what PM
Christie is doing and is precise-
ly the reason why his anchor
development policy is vision-
less.

The truth is that Mr Christie’s
so-called anchor development
policy is an accident of history.
PM Christie and his govern-
ment have done nothing to
attract new investments to The
Bahamas. What new policy
have they promulgated? What
new investment law have they
passed? What investment pro-
motion missions have they
mounted?

Who in the government went
out and approached any
investor not interested in invest-
ing in The Bahamas and con-
vinced them to come here? The
vast majority of investors
approved over the last four
years were looking at The
Bahamas in the time of Ingra-
ham and the accident of an elec-
tion caused them to have to
deal with the Christie adminis-
tration. They were looking at
The Bahamas because the enor-
mous success enjoyed by
investors here (most especially
Kerzner International) between

1992 and 2002 motivated them -

to do so. The success enjoyed
by those investors was a combi-
nation of a robust global eco-
nomic situation and a domestic
policy machinery that made
doing business in The Bahamas
more responsive than it had
been for almost 20 years prior
to 1992.

R czinat Smith, presi-
dent of the Exuma

Chamber of Commerce, made
a number of excellent points
about potential fallouts from
these supposed anchor pro-
jects.

What is interesting, however,
is that PM Christie would go on
to defend his policy as if he
actually has a project that is on
the ground and completed!
Emerald Bay Resorts was not
approved by Mr Christie,
though he and his colleagues
act as if this is so.

It was approved by Mr Ingra-
ham’s administration and when
it approved the project, it was
not done so as an “anchor pro-
ject”; it was simply a viable pro-
ject to boost the much-lagging
economy of Exuma. Mission
fulfilled in that regard.

Truth be told, an anchor
development policy is nothing
more than a word game by a
prime minister who likes words.
It is time for The Bahamas to
adopt a genuine economic
development policy that has
substance and that is sensitive to
the peculiar needs of the
Bahamian people in a globally
integrated world. It is doubtful
that we will ever see such a pol-
icy where there is more focus
on form than substance.

Prince Edward, the Earl of
Wessex is expected to visit the

’ Bahamas when he takes a tour

of the Caribbean next month.

The prince will also stop in
the Cayman Islands, Jamaica,
Barbados and Grenada during
the visit, which will take place
from February 2 to 8.

Prince Edward is the
youngest child and third son of
Queen Elizabeth II.

He has held the title of earl of
Wessex since 1999. The earl is
currently seventh in the line of
succession to the British Crown.

The earl and countess of
Wessex will carry out a full
schedule of royal duties on
behalf of the Queen.

In recent years, Prince
Edward has taken on many of
the roles of his father, the duke
of Edinburgh, who has divested
himself of some responsibilities
due to age.

The earl replaced him as
president of the Common-
wealth Games Federation and
opened the 1998 Common-
wealth Games in Malaysia.

He has also taken over the
duke's role in the Duke of
Edinburgh Awards scheme.

It was announced at the time
of his wedding that the earl of
Wessex would, upon the death
of his father eventually become
the duke of Edinburgh.



Trinidadian girl goes on
three-day fast to draw
— attention to crime

@ By ALEXANDRIO MORLEY
Tribune Staff Reporter

WITH the revelation that the
murder rate broke 60 for the
first time in six years and homi-
cides were up by almost 50 per
cent in the capital, Bahamians
can look to a 13-year-old
Trinidadian girl for inspiration
in the fight against crime.

Choc'late Allen has been on a
three-day, 6am to 6pm fast, to
draw attention to crime in her
country.

Her demonstration at the
Port of Spain National Library
has attracted international
media attention and many sup-
porters feel that the teenager’s
actions have struck a nerve in
the political arena of the
Caribbean nation.

Allen was visited by
Trinidad’s prime minister
Patrick Manning on Monday,
and she presented him with an
envelope containing a list of
campaign initiatives she intends
to stage, including a youth rally.

The teenager told reporters
that her fast is aimed at encour-
aging young children “to put
down the gun and pick up a
book.”

“I am calling on youths to
turn away from a life of crime

and do some thing positive with’

their lives. I am fasting for a 100
per cent crime-free Trinidad
and Tobago.

"I am encouraging nationals
to fast with me if they can. If
you can't come here to do it for
the entire day, come for at least
a few hours just to show your
support and just to show that
you will like to see a 100 per
cent crime-free Trinidad and
Tobago just as myself.”

‘Last year in Trinidad, 368
people were murdered and
already this year several others
have been killed. In addition, a
number of persons have been
kidnapped for ransom, with

ing 2006 showed a 12 per cent
increase compared to com-
plaints made the year before.

Choc'late Allen echoed the
sentiments of senior officers of
the Royal Bahamas Police
Force, who called for the public
and the private sector to co-
operate with the police in the
fight against crime.

She added: “I will definitely
like financial support in order to
get all the activities that are
planned in order to fight crime,
out to the public. There are
many other activities that are
planned, besides this fast, but
because of a lack of funding we
cannot execute all the projects.”

However, this title will still
be inherited by Philip's eldest

. son, Charles (as prince of

Wales, or king), and will
become merged with the crown
when he is king.

Charles will then be able, to
create a new Dukedom of Edin
burgh for his younger brother.

There are however a numbet
of ways that the dukedom
would not merge, including if
William and Charles both die
before Philip but William had at
least one daughter. In this case,
the daughter would become
queen but Prince Harry would
become the duke of Edinburgh.

If the princes William,

Charles, Harry and the duke of

York all die before Philip, with-
out any further issue, the carl
of Wessex would inherit the
dukedom of Edinburgh while
Princess Beatrice would become
Queen.

William could marry a
Catholic or become a Catholic,
thereby becoming ineligible to
be king.

If the title had not merged,
upon the death of Charles, Har-
ry would become duke of Edin-
burgh while William would
become king.

“With that, Sir Ralph
(Grey, the Governor) on 13th
January offered the chance to
Lynden Pindling to try to
form a government as Pre-
mier. He did and on 10th
April, 1968, fresh elections
were called leading to a land-
slide victory for the PLP,” Mr
Mitchell said.

Mr Mitchell also pointed
out that by the time the
majority rule vote took place,
changes to the Bahamas’ con-
stitution had come about as
there had been a need for fur-
ther constitutional reforms.

“Most analysts see the his-
tory of the current political
order as beginning in 1942
with the Burma Road riots.
There had been individual
champions of various public
causes on behalf of the
African majority in The
Bahamas but there was no
organised public opinion in
the sense of a political party,”
Mr Mitchell said.

In his view, Mr Mitchell
said that the riots of June 1
and 2, 1942, are seen as the
awakenings of an organised
political opinion.

“The 1962 general election
(the year women were given
the right to vote) turned out
to be a disappointment. There
was a series of by-elections
held in 1960 that resulted in
the PLP increasing the num-
ber of seats in the Assembly
to 10. The PLP was reduced
to six after the 1962 election.

“The PLP polled 32,299
votes and the UBP 26,826
votes. The PLP then set
about the quest for further
constitutional reform,” Mr
Mitchell said.

“The highlight of that cam-
paign came on April 27, 1967,
when the Speaker’s mace was
thrown out of the window.
Arthur Foulkes reportedly
coined the name ‘Black Tues-
day’. The constituency bound-
aries for the 1967 general elec-

‘tion were approved on that

day,” Mr Mitchell said.

was Mrs Maynard-Gibson personally who, as the newly
appointed Attorney General, decided that Mr Turner
should not attend the meeting.

However, speaking to The Tribune yesterday after the
opening of the legal year, she flatly denied these claims as

"false."

Previously, the prime minister expressed surprise at
hearing that no one in his cabinet had any knowledge of

the operation.

It was suggested that on learning of the allegation that
Mr Turner had been stopped from attending the meeting,
it may have been this deterioration in protocol that was at

the root of his surprise.

The five Bahamian baggage handlers were "lured", it
was claimed, from the country to the US on December 18,
where they were arrested and charged with drug traf-

ficking.

It is claimed that the manner of their arrest on US
shores, which came after they had been invited to attend
a "training programme" there, was the result of an agree-
ment between Bahamian and US authorities to avoid a

lengthy extradition process.

-»,€ourt Justice John Lyons in

* November — in which Jus-

., tice Lyons ruled that the

_-povernment’s failure to

icreview the pay of judges

-oijad threatened the inde-
pendence of the judiciary.

-ri; According to Sir Burton,

yin every country, the gov-

. ernment tends to be “erratic
in response to the needs of
the judiciary” as administra-

_tions are often “held
hostage by . . . contending
“demands for schools, hospi-

y-so forth.”
;_°. Sir Burton explained that

tes “at several levels which

rg, These include adjudica-

®.«“prative independence and
poystitutional independence,

ult aspect in practice" to
achieve due to the "compet-

demand public funding.
Then there are "skirmish-
it yes" involved in achieving
yi xadministrative indepen-
+ ,-dence "in practice" due to
the competing interests
-» which call for funding from

He added that at the level
of institutional indepen-

for space alongside other
/ institutions ...and will only

~ ‘survive to the extent that

¢ “the public at large accepts
‘© *and supports it and is will-

_ ing to defend it against

“2 by the executive or any oth-
-\¢ er institution, public or pri-

vate."

7.) Justice Lyons’ ruling said
bg-that because the govern-

et

-4ment had failed to appoint a

sion on two occasions to
review the salaries of

is not independent.

Some commentators have
declared that Justice Lyons’
ruling has created a "consti-
tutional crisis”.

However, responding to
his ruling in a statement to
the House of Assembly in
November, Attorney Gen-
eral Allyson Maynard-Gib-
son called it "misleading."

His ruling will now go
before the Court of
Appeals.

Justice Lyons has stated
that if he is found to have
misled the public, he will
resign, but that if he is
proven to be correct, the
Attorney General should
resign.

During his speech yester-
day, the chief justice also
said it was regrettable that
following Justice Lyons’ rul-
ing, persons within and out-
side the legal system had
abandoned the "intellectual
and communal fecundity
toward which their educa-
tion, training and experi-
ence should impel them"
and had instead "suc-
cumbed to the temptation
to the smug self-satisfaction
and cheap popularity of
rhetorical onanism”.

He said that in the event
of public controversy, it is
the duty of those “who have
benefited from training in
the discipline of the law" to
use their training to educate
the public "as to the pur-
pose the system was intend-
ed to serve and the expecta-
tions that the citizens are
entitled to entertain about
the system and the limita-
tions of the law as a cure for

In this case, he said, there
appears to have been a
"misunderstanding” among
large portions of the popu-
lace “about the role of the

Fred Mitchell hits
back at accusations
of compromised .
sovereignty

FROM page one

demeaning manner by US custom officers at the airport in Miami
in 1972, the order was given by the Customs Department of the
Bahamas not to process any flights from the
US. :

Mr Mitchell said he believes the incident has relevance to yes-
terday’s observance of Majority Rule day because it reflects what
was sometimes necessary during the long struggle towards achiev-
ing the sovereignty of the Bahamas.

Alluding to the claims and criticisms by members of the
public, political observers and the opposition that the arrest
of the five baggage handlers at Fort Lauderdale Airport in Decem-
ber has called into question the political’sovereignty of the
Bahamas, Minister Mitchell said he considers those comments “an

inexcusable and major insult to me and everyone in this govern- \

ment.”

“This country is an independent and sovereign nation. We
believe in Majority Rule, we believe in the independence of this
country and we stand up for-every Bahamian citizen wherever
they are,” he said.

In the last two weeks, Mr Mitchell said, he has heard the most
outrageous and libellous statements made about the governments
handling of the incident. .

He said that one commentator on the matter went so far as to
accuse Minister of Transport and Aviation Glenys Hanna-Martin
of treason.

“A libellous statement was in fact made against the member
for Englerston accusing her of something that carries the death
penalty, simply because some people disagree with the manner in
which a matter was handled as a matter of public palicy in this coun-
try,” he said.

Minister Mitchell declared that he was prepared to “bear any bur-
den, pay any price to defend this country.”

He asked if those making accusations against the government in
this matter could say the same.

Scavella, his staff, junior offi-
cers and marines, have begun
a massive physical exercise
routine at the Coral Harbour
Base.

A statement issued yester-
day by the Defence Force said
that physical fitness plays as
a vital role in the duties
marines are expected to per-
form on a daily basis.

“It also gives the command
a proper assessment of its
troop’s state of readiness,” the
statement said.

As part of the exercise,
which began on Monday, the
men and women of the force
are expected to complete a
mile and a half run within a
specified time, push-ups, sit-
ups, pull-ups, swim for 300
meters — and afterwards, tread
water for at least three min-
utes, followed by a dive to a
minimum depth of 12 feet to
retrieve an object.

The exercise, which is
expected to become an annu-
al occurrence, will last for
three weeks, and involves per-
sonnel from every segment of
the Defence Force.

THE TRIBUNE

CARIBBEAN NEWS

Five years later,
Guantanamo has
changed but remains
source of outrage

@ HAVANA

TWO years after his release
from the U.S. naval base at
Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, Asif
~ Iqbal is headed back — to the
other side of the barbed wire,
according to Associated Press.

The British Muslim has
returned to Cuba with a group
of 11 peace activists and rela-
tives of detainees to denounce
alleged abuses at the U.S.
prison camp for terror suspects
and demand it be closed.

“It doesn’t feel anything like
Guantanamo now — I’m free,”
Iqbal, 25, told a news confer-
ence Tuesday in Havana. “But
if I can see the cages, it’s going
to be a bit emotional.”

The group, which includes
American “peace mom” Cindy
Sheehan, planned to fly to the
Cuban city of Guantanamo
Tuesday night and march out-

side the gates of the U.S. base_

on Thursday, five years to the
day since the first detainees
arrived from Afghanistan. The
demonstration is one of many
planned in the United States
and around the world to mark
the anniversary.

“I’ve come and joined this
delegation to say to the people
in Guantanamo Bay that we
have not forgotten about you,”
said Iqbal, who spent 2 1/2
years at the prison. “Until that
place is closed down, I cannot
forget what happened there.”

About 395 men are detained
at Guantanamo on suspicion of
links to al-Qaida or Taliban,
including about 85 who have
been cleared to be released or
transferred to other countries.
The U.S. military says it wants
to charge 60 to 80 detainees and
bring them to trial.

Iqbal said he spent three
months in an isolation cell and
endured painful positions,
screeching music, strobe lights,
. sleep deprivation and extreme
temperatures. The treatment
was torture, he said, and forced
him and two other British
friends at the camp into falsely
confessing they were members
of al-Qaida, Osama bin Laden’s
terror network.

The men’s experience is por-
trayed in the movie “The Road
to Guantanamo,” which
recounts how Iqbal went to
Pakistan shortly after the Sept.
11, 2001, terror attacks to meet
the woman his mother had
arranged for him to marry. His

Five years since the first detainees arrived here on Jan. 11, 2002,

friends soon joined him there.
They say they heeded a call for
humanitarian aid in
Afghanistan, arriving just as the
U.S. began its assault on the
Taliban regime for sheltering
bin Laden and his followers.

The: men were captured by
US. allied Afghan troops and
turned over to U.S. forces, who
held them in Pakistan then
transferred them to Guan-
tanamo in early 2002.

British officials eventually
learned all three were home in
England at the time U.S. inter-
rogators claimed they attend-
ed a bin Laden rally in
Afghanistan. They were finally
released in 2004, and have a
lawsuit pending against the
United States.

“We-were lucky,” Iqbar said,
adding that he’s worried about
the other detainees who could
be innocent but have no way
to prove it. No one at Guan-
tanamo has had a fair trial, he
said.

“Everyone has basically been
labeled a terrorist and guilty,”
he said. “That’s not the way
that democratic countries work.
Five years without a trial is not
acceptable, especially from the

n terror, with Bush meanwhile

United States of America.”

The mother and brother of
British citizen Omar Dehayes, a
current detainee, traveled from
the United Arab Emirates to
join the protest against the
prison camp. They insisted he
was innocent.

“J ask every mother and
every father to ask them to shut

_down this prison now and

release everyone there so they
can go back to their families
and to their mothers,” said
Zohra Zewawi, breaking into
tears.

“I ask George Bush, if he had
his child in this place, would-

n’t he feel the same?” she

asked.

In an earlier press release,
Zewawi said her son had been
tortured and blinded in one eye
since he was imprisoned in Sep-
tember 2002.

He still has not been charged
or tried.

Sheehan, whose 24-year-old
son Casey was killed in Iraq in
April 2004, said she was
“deeply ashamed” of how the
U.S. has handled the “war on
terror” and called Bush and his
administration “enemies of
humanity.”
