headquarters on Yellow Pine
Street.

The shipyard employs a labour
force of 600.

Of the 200 Bahamians
employed there, 141 of them are
members of the union.

ment violated the industrial

The union filed a dispute on
behalf the workers with the

’ Labour Department.

Despite twq meetings to con-
ciliate the matters, Mr Grey said
that management would not com-
ply with the agreement and has
refused to withdraw the suspen-
sions.

The union claims that two
employees were wrongfully sus-
pended, and that one individual
was given a warning letter for
being sick.

Mr David Dalgleish, managing
director at the. shipyard, insisted
that the suspensions were war-
ranted. He said he was not con-
cerned about the union’s threats
of a strike vote.

Mr Grey said he was pleased
with the number of persons that
turned out to vote.

“We have 141 members, and
so far we had a pretty good turn
out of persons coming to cast
their vote. We only need the
majority and once the vote is in

favour of a strike we wiil take
industrial action, if the shipyard
won't settle the matters.

“The shipyard has anywhere

from around 600 to 700 workers, ’

and only 200 Bahamians are
employed there, and that is the
problem,” he said.

Mr Grey claims that because
there are more expatriates
employed at the shipyard, man-
agement feels it can do whatever
it wants to.

“You might say these are not
serious issues to take a strike vote
over, but these are the people’s
rights and the union takes that
very seriously. ,

“The Labour Department
looked at the agreement and said
that the matters were not han-
dled in accordance with the
agreement, but management dis-
agreed,” he claimed.

Mr Grey said that a strike vote
was the last option available to
the union.

The votes were still being
counted up to press time last
night.

PMU voices concern over
Bahamasair’s ‘failure to
pay Christmas bonuses’

@ By BRENT DEAN



PUBLIC Managers Union president Elton Gibson said the union
reserves the right to take further action if there is no progress on its griev-

ances with Bahamasair.

Mr Gibson, speaking yesterday at a lunchtime meeting with members

- in the parking lot of the Bahamasair administrative building, asserted that

the company’s failure to pay Christmas bonuses to the members is one of
the main issues of concern. He acknowledged that Christmas bonuses are
not a part of the current contract between the airline and his members.
. However, he asserted that the bonuses were a historical arrangement
before the agreement, and the union did not think they would be dis-
continued at the signing of the new contract.
“ Ag far the union is concerned, whether we put in there or not, we did-
n't see the real need to put it in if they are giving it to them without it being
included. We never expected that management would just take away

something that is given.”

In response to the union’s statem,
es, Henry Woods, managing ‘direc

in the office of the prime minister that they would get no Christmas
bonus.” Mr Woods further asserted that Bahamasair is in financial dis-

tress, with the government having p

ut $25 million into the company last

year, and it is expected that the government would put an additional $18.8

million into the company this year.

Road project
‘on schedule’

m@ By ALEXANDRIO
MORLEY
Tribune Staff Reporter

FOLLOWING calls from
angry motorists about road
works at the corner of Mackey
and Shirley Streets, the Min-
istry of Works assured the
public that the project is pro-
gressing as scheduled. .

Yesterday, a number of dri-
vers called The Tribune to
complain about the road
work. They said that signs had
indicated that it was supposed
to take place during Novem-
ber and December, and ques-
tioned why it was not yet com-
plete.

One of the motorists said:
“An entire lane of Mackey
Street is being dug up at the
moment, and it doesn’t look
like they will be finished any
time soon.”

The Tribune contacted the
Ministry of Works for com-
ment, and was told the work
should be completed by next
month. ,

A statement from Chief
Civil Engineer Howard Bar-
rett read: “The project is pro-
gressing as scheduled. The
first phase was to be complet-
ed on December 15. The pro-
ject was stopped after the first
phase to recommence in Jan-
uary in order to mitigate the
inconvenience to the motor-
ing public over the Yuletide
season.

“The second phase is ongo-
ing and is estimated to be
completed by February 2.”

@ MINISTER of
Education Alfred Sears

Sears alarmed
to hear two
teachers aides
‘not paid
since 2005’

@ By PAUL G
TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter

EDUCATION Minister
Alfred Sears was alarmed to
hear that two teachers aides
in Long Island had not been
paid since 2005 when they
were hired.

FNM MP for Long Island,
Larry Cartwright, raised the
issue during “opposition
day” in the House of Assem-
bly yesterday.

“Mr Speaker, in 2005,
some teacher’s aides were
hired on the island of Long
Island, and I thought the
minister was going to
address this just now, but it
is my understanding that

they have not been paid’

since 2005,” Mr Cartwright
said.

The aides are employed
at the Lower Deadman’s
Cay Primary, and Glinton’s
Primary School.

In response, Mr Sears
said: “Mr Speaker, I must
admit that I am alarmed.
Because this is the first time
I am hearing of the case of
two teachers aides at Lower
Deadman’s Cay Primary,
and Glinton’s Primary.

“And I will undertake to
conduct an.immediate inves-
tigation and to also under-
take that with the hon-
ourable member for Long
Island and share the results,”
he said.

‘Insufficient evidence’ to charge or prosecute
in connection with the alleged ‘visa scam’

Fred Mitchell reads letter from

Commissioner of Police in House

@ By RUPERT MISSICK Jr
Chief Reporter

INSUFFICIENT evidence has
been gathered to charge or pros-
ecute any person within or outside
the consular office at the Ministry
Foreign Affairs as it relates to the
alleged “visa scam” at the min-
istry, Commissioner of Police Paul
Farquharson revealed in a written
communication to Foreign Affairs
Minister Fred Mitchell.

Mr Mitchell read from the let-
ter yesterday during a communi-
cation to the House of Assembly.

The minister also reiterated his
assertion that FNM hopeful for
Holy Cross Carl Bethel, who
made the assertions, should go to
the police if he indeed had any
information as it relates to illegal
operations inside the ministry.

“If there was any impropricty
in the consular affairs division on
the part of anyone there, or if
Carl Bethel is aware of anyone
who has or is trying to fraudu-
lently obtain visas, it is in the
national interest that Senator
Bethel should go to police. I urge
him to go to the police; he is duty
bound to go to the police; and
unless or until he does so, there is
little else to be said on the sub-
ject,” Mr Mitchell said.

The letter from Commission-

er Farquharson said that to date,
insufficient evidence has been
gathered to charge or prosecute
any person within or outside the
consular office.

“Investigations are ongoing
into this matter, and I will keep
you informed of any further
progress,” Mr Farquharson said in
his letter.

During the question and
answer period in the House of
Assembly yesterday, leader of the
opposition Hubert Ingraham
asked Mr Mitchell if any specitic

~ information has been provided to

the police by the minister or offi-
cials in his ministry.

Mr Ingraham asked if Mr
Mitchell had been or expects to
be questioned by police.

However, Mr Mitchell said that
he had made no allegation with
respect to things “going wrong”
within the ministry and the per-
sons who made the allegation
should provide the proof.

“LT have briefed the police on
the allegations that have come to
my attention and those matters
are being investigated by the
police,” the minister said.

Mr Ingraham said that he
would go to sec the commission-
er of police personally about the
matter.

“I found the letter the com-

Roberts: school fumigation ‘not
cause of children failing sick’

FUMIGATION at an Andros school was not the cause of dozens
of children falling sick late last year, Minister of Works and Utilities
Bradley Roberts told the House of Assembly yesterday.

Students of Deep Creek Primary became sick in December of last

year because they contracted the flu —

not because of any contam-

ination due to fumigation, Mr Roberts explained.

MP for South Andros Whitney Bastian had suggested to Mr
Roberts that the use of aerosol pesticides at the school had caused
dozens of children to become sick.

Mr Roberts said that although there was some bacterial contam-
ination in the water which flows from the school’s pump, this was not
the reason for the students’ illness and the consequent closing of the

school.

The minister said that the children all became sick at on or

around December 7.

At the same, he said, the clinic in the area reported an outbreak

~ of the flu...

{57}
in}

Even the clinic’s doctor displayed the same symptoms,as the

children, Mr Roberts said.

As it concerns the water from the pump at Deep Creek Primary,
the minister said, the children are advised not to use it for con-

sumption.

He emphasised that the Ministry of Education provides import-
ed potable water for the children.

Hi MINISTER of Foreign
Affairs Fred Mitchell

missioner gave you a very strange

letter, and as the constitutional
leader of the opposition J will sce
the commissioner with respect to
this supposed investigation and
the letter which he sent to you,”
Mr Ingraham said.

During his communication, Mr
Mitchell asserted that there is and
there can be no evidence that he
is or was involved in any visa
scam”,

“As these matters relating to
allegations of a ‘visa scam’ have
now been fully illuminated by me
within and outside of this House,
there is no further need for com-
ment, other than by the police.
Any and each time this matter is
raised again as a political mischief,
my response will be: has Car]
Bethel been to the police?” Mr
Mitchell said.

The minister said that the
report of an expert from the
Commonwealth Fund for Tech-
nical Co-operation on the con-
sular division of the Ministry of
Foreign Affairs is almost com-
plete.

Mr Mitchell said that the report
is likely to lead to changes in pro-
cedures and personnel at the sec-
tion within a short time.

So far, the minister said, he has
already received an oral summa-
ry of the report and has promised
to act on this.

FREEPORT - A West
End man has been
arrested in connection
with the shooting inci-
dent that took place ear-
ly Tuesday morning at
Fishing Hole Road.

Supt Basil Rahming
reported that a 23-year-
old man was taken into

He was assisted to the
hospital by, police offi-
cers.

Mr Rahming said that

WV ITH the election date
expected to be

announced imminently, The Tri-
bune thought it would be a good
idea to take a tour of Bay Street to
find out how the public feels about
the last five years of PLP gover-
nance.

Asking whether people feel better '

off, what successes or failures the
current administration can be cred-
ited with, and how the public feels
about the opposition, its leader, and
its chances, The Tribune found that
no one was without something to
say...

First off was 20 year-old nursing
student, Michelle from Baillou Hills,
who had just got out of work. She
was all smiles, but nonetheless
downbeat about the government's
accomplishments over the last five
years.

“T don't see nothing at all to tell
you the truth — it’s the same thing.
The only thing they’re trying to
implement is the national health
insurance and there’s a lot of shady
areas there that they haven't
addressed.” She said people seem
very confused about the NHI
scheme.

Other than passing the legislation
for NHI, Michelle said she felt the
PLP had “not done anything really”.

"That's the only thing - national
health insurance, right?" she asked
her friend. "Nothing else!"

However, Michelle was more
optimistic about the Opposition
leader, Hubert Ingraham.

“Hubert's cool,” she said. “He's a
straightforward man, he gets to the
point and he deals with his party. I
feel as if they have a fair chance of
winning the election if they bring
across their point to the Bahamian
people.”

Her friend, another nursing stu-
dent from the Carmichael con-
stituency, claimed that after five
years of PLP governance “life is
much more hard”.

"Just look around,” she said. "I'm
not only saying this because I'm an
FNM. Now you have these little
local people as politicians who are
coming in and they don't really
know nothing much, they're just
doing it for power." io

However, she noted that roads in
her area had been repaved during
the government's tenure.

Asked about how she viewed the
opposition as an alternative, she not-
ed that Mr Ingraham has been crit-
icised for his leadership style.

"They say he's a person who
doesn't like to listen to other people,
but I feel as if sometimes you have
to take a stand on whether or not
you're going to listen to people or do
what you think is right. With Perry
Christie, he listens to what people
have to say, which is good, but then
you have to think about what is also
good for the country," she said.

Kevin Macintosh, a 28-year-old
from Freeport, said he felt the PLP
had made improvements on that
island.

“We had our little ups and downs,
going slow and things, but the
biggest problem in Freeport was that
people needed homes and that's
what the government's mostly doing






. So I think they're doing quite a
good job," he said.

Michael, a 52 year-old Farm
Road man said emphatically that he
would not be voting in the upcoming
election.

“All my life I was a PLP, but they
need to clean up the land — you must
always clean up the land. Every-
where you see a lot of filth and dirt,
that's where criminals are. Aban-
doned buildings — clean it up! Get
rid of them! The place is running
down and they don't see it.

They could've done much more,"
he said. "I was a strong PLP but I'm

not going to vote for them because I ,

don't like what they're doing."

Dawn Young, a 48-year-old shop
assistant from the Garden Hills, said
that five years of PLP governance
had left her concerned for the econ-
omy.

"Especially with Bay Street itself,
because there's so many stores clos-
ing down because of all the filth.
Bay Street has just gone down, all of
us... we are getting ready now to
close, and a few other stores I under-
stand are getting ready to close —
the place is so filthy people don't
even want to come this way."

She said that while the govern-
ment has projects underway in the
out islands, she worries about the
environment being destroyed.

Criticising Mr Christie, she said:
"As far as I'm concerned we don't
have a government, we don't have a

prime minister, cos you hardly hear

him, you don't see him, so where is
he?”

"In this government there's a lot
of homes being built, which is very
very good — everywhere is being
built up," said 40-year-old David
Ferguson, a taxi driver from Anne's
town .. . He added however that
"people are saying Christie moves
too slow."

Mr Ferguson also said that he is
concerned that the current govern-
ment has "messed up our sover-
eignty."

"In other words they have laws
that they have broken themselves.
They have extradited some folks
from here, which our laws declare
that if they commit a crime, ‘in Nas-
sau they ought to spend their time
here," he said, claiming that peo-
ple's Tights have been violated under
the current government.

Meanwhile, Tino, 21, a Riu Hotel
employee from Carmichael,
declared that he would not be vot-
ing.

Based on his experience in the
previous five years, he felt that nei-
ther the PLP nor FNM were good
options, as both only “do something
when election coming up”

As for the last five years of PLP
government, he said: "They're
worthless - they ain’t trying to help
the Bahamians. They're trying to
sell Nassau out."

The day's most senior citizen, Mrs
R Darville, a 74-year-old grand-
mother living in St Cecilia, said that
she felt the PLP's efforts have been
"half way."

"My daughter is a doctor, she was
here for one year, and she didn't
get a job — they've got too many Fil-
ipinos — so she's gone back to where
she can get a job in Miami. And
she's a Bahamian!" she said.

Desma Clarke, 33, from Grants
Town said: “All they've given us is
promises. I haven’t even seen my
MP for five years.”

Finally, Gloria, 43, and a former -

security guard from Mt Moriah, was
adamant: "They got to go! They
haven't done anything constructive
round here. Bahamian people can't
even go on the beaches where they
used to go a long time ago," she
said.

"Look out here: a bunch of young
men drinking rum — there ain’t no
jobs for them!" she exclaimed.

A CAR valued at $23,000
has been donated to the
Bahamas Association for the
Physically Disabled.

The car was handed over
at a press conference on
Tuesday at Montagu Gar-
dens by Mrs Helen Astarita.

Mrs Astarita said. she
decided to make the dona-
tion after reading a story
published by The Tribune
regarding the repeated rob-
beries at the centre.

President of the BAPD,
Sir Durward Knowles,
thanked Mrs Astarita and
accepted the vehicle on
behaif of the association.

He noted that the vehicle,
a 2007 Honda Fit, will be
sold with the proceeds being
used for the operation of the
centre

Sir Durward noted that it
is rare for the centre to
receive such a large dona-
tion, although an increased
number of individuals and
groups have begun to step
forward as a result of the
publicity surrounding the
robberies.

Minister of Social Services
Melanie Griffin also extend-
ed her thanks to Mrs Astari-
ta. Minister Griffin asserted
that under Sir Durward’s
stewardship, she is certain
that the proceeds of the car
will be put to good use.

The BAPD had planned to
celebrate its 25th anniversary
in April by building a play-
ground and gardens for the
children. However, the
repeated robberies have
forced the centre to focus tts

ftiieaen COB ‘wants to see’ more |

Bahamians attending
tertiary institutions



tourism:
BLE ES
at critical

OTB lS
history

THE Bahamas is at a criti-
cal point in its history as it
seeks to.propel the tourism
industry forward according to
COB president Janyne Hod-
der.

She noted that more and
more countries are seeking.to
attract the very same people,
while tourists are becoming
more particular about what
they expect.

“There probably is a wide
consensus that we have two
precious assets: the beauty of
these islands and the warmth
and generosity of the people
who live here. Both of these
assets are precious, said Ms
Hodder. “They are also frag-
ile.”

“Clean waters can become
dirty. Marine life can be
destroyed. Beaches can be
eroded. People who are gen-
erous and warm can become
intolerant and angry — espe-
cially they feel that what is
theirs is being mismanaged or
damaged,” she said.

Ms Hodder noted that this
“alarmist” scenario is not
unheard of.

“There are countries that
once were beautiful and are
less so. There are countries
where people who were once
open to tourism and gener-
ous to visitors have become
resentful and where tourists
no longer go.”

She said that for ‘the
Bahamas to move its single
industry forward through a
number of major develop-
ments, it must approach the
matter with “care, creativity
and innovation”.

Ms Hodder said the college
is planning to do its part to
‘meet this challenge.

“We want to build a strong
marine and environmental
sciences programme to pro-
duce the kind of scientists and
the kind of scientific research
which should drive decision-
making with respect to the
sustainability of our marine
and environmental
resources,” she said.

The president noted that
the Bahamas is “particularly
well-placed to do this and this
kind of research is critical to
making well informed choices
about tourism development.”

PRESIDENT ON CUL-
TURAL PROGRAMMES

A number of new cultural
programmes offered by COB
for the benefit of Bahamians
could also be geared towards

| visitors, Janyne Hodder said.

She noted that last fall, the
college launched an Interna-
tional Languages and Culture

‘Institute, which offers instruc-

tion in a number of foreign
| languages and also hosts cul-
tural and public interest
events.

“Last fall also, we launched
the new Anatol Rodgers Lec-
ture series. We operate a
} great bookstore, we hosted
| Jazz Night, a band festival
| and we are about to open a
| new performing arts centre,
| she said. ;

“These activities contribute
to the quality of life of
Bahamians but we also want
to reach out to the visitor
market. We are exploring
how we might do this.”

Ms Hodder said the college
is considering whether part
of the attraction of coming to
the Bahamas might not even-
tually include academic pro-
gramming for visitors “who
| would enjoy getting to know
| this country, its history, its
heritage, its people — through
the lens of a short course or
brief seminar in history, music

or cooking.”
| “Our service contribution
might also include partnering
with others to showcase arti-
facts of history, culture and
the arts in a way that repre-
sents what we most value
| about country and culture,”
she added.

“The creation of the sacred
| space at Clifton, for example,
| might benefit from develop-
| ment which includes historical
| information panels and a
guided tour.

“We can work with others
to offer guests in this coun-
try an opportunity to get to
know the people as well as
the beaches,” Ms Hodder
said.







AROUND 14 per cent of
Bahamians between the ages of
18 and 24 attend a higher educa-
tion institution, COB president
Janyne Hodder revealed yester-
day.

Speaking at the National
Tourism Conference, Ms Hodder
said the college wants to see an
increase in this percentage.

“If Bahamians are to benefit
from the opportunities of our
economy, then this rate must be
much higher,” she said. “The
tourism industry — like so many
others — can create high value
jobs, but to fill these positions,
you need well-educated ¢andi-
dates and you need them in
greater numbers than we are cur-
rently providing.”

Ms Hodder was speaking about
the importance of the tourism
sector and the contribution that
the college — soon to be the Uni-
versity of the Bahamas — can
make to the industry.

“We are not simply in the busi-
ness of building an institution at
the college, we are contributing to
building a nation and that is how
we hope you will experience our
contribution,” she said.

Ms Hodder said universities
contribute to nation-building in
three ways. The first, she said, is
through the transmission of
knowledge through high quality
academic programmes.

“For the last 30 years, the Col-
lege of the Bahamas has been
building high quality pro-
grammes, first at the associate
degree level and increasingly now
at the baccalaureate level. Many
in the tourism industry are our
graduates — including, of course,

later this morning. The Univer-
sity of the Bahamas will continue
to offer undergraduate pro-
grammes and we intend to make
the undergraduate experience of
our students better and better,”
she said.

Ms Hodder noted that this is
why the college has been seeking
international partners to create
international student and faculty
exchange programmes.

“Indeed, we recently signed an
agreement with the University of
Johannesburg to create such
exchanges and we expect our first
field of collaboration will be
tourism and hospitality, given the
high level of activity in this sector
in both our countries,” the presi-
dent said.

She said the second contribu-
tion of a university is in the area
of research.

Ms Hodder pointed to the Ger-
ace Research Centre in San Sal-
vador has been successful for over
30. years in attracting American

and Canadian university students
and researchers.

' “We are focusing our efforts
around defining a limited num-
ber of inter-disciplinary research
themes that would allow us to
build new knowledge for the
good of the country and also for
the world. We see these themes as
very closely linked to national
development issues. Marine and
environmental sciences, maritime
law, tourism and culture, devel-
opment and quality of life, finan-
cial services, challenges of small
island developing states — all of
these must be integrated into the
broad research themes we will
encourage our colleagues to pur-
sue,” she said.

Ms Hodder said the third con-
tribution is in the area of service
to the community.

“We have done this through
our Continuing Education depart-
ment for years now, encouraging
Bahamians who might have
missed out on the chance to pur-
sue higher education to come
back.

“As we move to university sta-
tus, we see an increase in the ser-
vice component. We have creat-
ed a new portfolio which we call
Outreach and our major goal in
this portfolio is to increase our
presence in the nation. We want
no family in the Bahamas to be
left untouched by our work,” she

¢ Benjamins

Roberts challenged on
construction contract

FROM page one

It was a contract he
claimed should have cost the
government $5,000 less than
it did.

FNM Leader Hubert
Ingraham yesterday support-
ed Mr Bastian in his line of
questioning and said that Mr
Roberts should have been
more thorough in his exami-
nation of the contract before
allowing it to be awarded.

Mr Bastian asked Mr
Roberts to state what the rec-
ommended cost for the con-
tract was and how much the
Minister advised his officers
to negotiate for the contract.

The South Andros MP sug-
gested that the original esti-
mate of cost for the work on
the Cargill Creek bridge was
$15,000, but that government
ended up paying more than

itching, sneezing and other
cold & allergy symptoms.

A trusted name for over a century

$20,000.

Mr Roberts responded by
tabling the correspondence
within his ministry regarding
this matter and telling his fel-
low parliamentarians that the
contract was negotiated on
the recommendations of sev-
eral officers — including the
director of works and the per-
manent secretary — within his
ministry.

The minister explained that
the initial estimate for the
repair work on the Cargill
Creek bridge was estimated
at $16,000.

Three construction compa-
nies, he said, were invited to
bid on the contract. However,
only one company respond-
ed and offered to do the work

for $33,650, the minister said. .

Mr Roberts said that fol-
lowing recommendations by
engineers, with the endorse-

fast acting fever

ment of the Director of
Works and the advice of the
permanent secretary, a con-
tract was then negotiated
between the ministry and the
construction company for
$20,510.

“That is the factual posi-
tion,” Mr Roberts said.

Mr Ingraham, however,
criticised Minister Roberts
for not questioning his min-
istry officials as to why the
contract was overpriced.

The FNM leader said that
the document tabled by Mr



Roberts clearly shows that a
contract for $20,510 was
awarded, notwithstanding the ’
fact that his own ministry had -
said that the work could be,
done for $15,000.

“It is appropriate to ask the
minister why didn’t he’
inquire of them, why if you .
have an estimate of $15,000
and you are going to negoti-
ate a contract, why are you ,
going to give it for $20,000...
There is no evidence that ther:
minister asked such a ques-
tion,” Mr Ingraham said.

The king is

STRAIGHT UP TALK

HERE is a wonderful

story by Danish writer
Hans Christian Andersen pub-
lished in 1837 that has great rel-
evance to what is happening in
our country today.

Indeed, it was former Prime
Minister Hubert Ingraham who
drew reference to this ina
recent rally speech.

As adapted by Wikipedia,
the story goes as follows:
“Many years ago there lived an
emperor who was quite an
average fairy tale ruler, with
one exception: he cared much
about his clothes.

“One day he heard from two
swindlers named Guido and
Luigi Farabutto that they could
make the finest suit of clothes
from the most beautiful cloth.
This cloth, they said, also had
the special capability that it was
invisible to anyone who was
either stupid or not fit for his
position.

“Being a bit nervous about
whether he himself would be
able to see the cloth, the
emperor first sent two of his
trusted men to see it. Of course,
neither would admit that they
could not see the cloth and so
praised it. All the townspeople
had also heard of the cloth and
were interested to learn how
stupid their neighbours were.

“The emperor then allowed |

himself to be dressed in the
clothes for a procession
through town, never admitting
that he was too unfit and stupid
to see what he was wearing. For
he was afraid that the other
people would think that he was
stupid.

“Of course, all the towns-
people wildly praised the mag-
nificent clothes of the emper-
or, afraid to admit that they
could not see them, until a
small child said:

‘But he has nothing on!’

“This was whispered from
person to person until every-
one in the crowd was shouting
that the emperor had nothing
on. The emperor heard it and
felt that they were correct, but
held his head high and finished
the procession.”

‘PRIME MINISTER
CHRISTIE’S NEW
CLOTHES

It does seem that Prime Min-
ister Perry Christie is parading
up and down The Bahamas
sporting a set of invisible
clothes that Guido and Luigi
fitted for him from some spec-
tacular invisible cloth. His
clothes are made of some 500
approved investments valued
at $18 billion that are driving
an “unprecedented” level of
economic growth in The
Bahamas.

The only problem is that
investment inflow into the
country over the last five years,
according to the Central Bank
of The Bahamas, totalled just
a little over $1 billion and that
the highest economic rate of
growth in the country within
the last 15 years was 6.8 per
cent and took place about eight
years ago when Mr Christie was
jeadex of the opposition and his
former law partner was prime
minister.

The PM’s clothes are made
up of an “unparalleled” num-
ber of 1,500 government homes
constructed that rest in beau-
tifully named sub-divisions like
“Excellence” and “Dignity”
Never mind that too many
occupants of these homes suffer
the mediocrity and indignity of
some of these homes and sub-
divisions being incomplete or
poorly built, the emperor touts
‘them as modern marvels of his
government’s ingenuity.

The PM’s clothes are made
of the fine thread of Urban
Renewal, now being credited
with possibly lowering the Her
Majesty’s Prison population
and recidivism rate despite the
fact that an inordinate number
of persons charged with violent
crimes now roam our streets
out on bail.

This same fine thread can be
credited with transforming our
inner cities, yet the murder rate
in our nation has us coupled
with Jamaica as having among
the highest per capita murder
rates in the world.

The PM’s clothes are made
of the brightest cabinet in the
history of our nation with ethi-
cal standards that are laced
with holiness. Yet, almost every
cabinet minister has been



comeccnmmmemennnns WASHAU. BAHAMAS

CAVES VILLAGE



ZH

involved with some scandal or
another, some so outrageous
that in a more accountable sys-
tem of government such minis-
ters would have long since
resigned or been dismissed.

The PM’s suit is made of the
National Health Insurance
promise that compelled the
government recently to
announce the start of later
times for clinics in South Beach
and other places to be open
despite not having planned
enough to have sufficient doc-
tors and nurses to serve the
large numbers of people who
would take advantage of the
same.

So, when the people came
and could not be served they
became frustrated and irate; so
much so that when the Minister

‘of Health and his team came to

assess the problem, they were
greeted by a level of hostility
that was, to say the least, utter-
ly embarrassing.

Yes, Prime Minister Christie
is wearing a fine birthday. suit
made for him by Guido and
Luigi. Doubtful as he may be
about his own suit, the

swindlers have convinced the-

prime minister to go oui and
sport his suit before the public
hoping that maybe, just maybe,
it is gullible enough to buy in.

Leading the procession
declaring the PM’s suit is ZNS,
the people’s broadcast station,
closely followed by a band of
merry men whose only interest
is to preserve their privileged
perches at the spigot of gov-
ernment favours.

Be sure of this, however, in
every township in The Bahamas
there is that simple little boy
with a child’s logic who will
observe the happenings and
shout with a common honesty,
“But the king is naked!”

.BAHA MAR
SUMS IT UP BEST
Baha Maz’s ad probably sums
up best the new propaganda
being put to The Bahamian

‘public by PM Christie and his

government. In case you missed

“it, check the full spread cover

ad on the back page of a num-
ber of the dailies and you will
find an ad by Baha Mar that
says, “What is most beautiful
is what you can’t see!”

Give yourself some time to
wrap your mind around that
statement and then consider the
fact that Baha Mar is suggesting
that if its development comes
to pass, what you don’t see now
will be more beautiful than
what you will see.

Forget seeing a beautiful red
rose! What is more beautiful is
the rose you can’t see. So, as
the ad goes, Baha Mar will take
four years to complete its
development and two decades
or 20 years after that, it will
add an “estimated” $2.6 billion

That’s right, it’s coming but

Cable bandits ‘hurting

Tribune Staff Reporter

CABLE-BANDITS are cost-
ing BC customers thousands
ot doilars in repairs and delays,
according to a senior officer at
the company.

Dale Knowles, vice-president
for network services, spoke with
fhe Tribune yesterday about
what he described as a “serious
issue” that affects BTC and its
customers.

“We want to inform the pub-
lic that over the last quarter of
the year we've started experi-
eucing a number of disruptions
as a result of sabotage to our
cavies,” he said.

Mr Knowles said thai in

2006, more than 2.000 feet of

cable was stolen from BTC, and
that thieves would remove cable
lines to “re-sell the copper cable
on the hot market.”

He said the affected areas
included Marshall Road, the
South West Ridge, and areas
not frequently travelled.

“It’s not just hurting BaTel-
Co, but it’s really hurting the
customer base,” said Mr
Knowles.

The average cost for provid:

in New Providence is about

vice,

“So vou add that up and
that’s nearly $500,000 right
there in expenses,” Mr Knowles
said.

“At the moment it’s getting -

worse because these persons are
moving away from the basic
cables to the more intricate
cables that could cause a serious
disruption to the entire system.”

He said the public should call
the police or BaTelCo if they
see anyone involved in such

. activity.

Ms Walkine told the National Tourism week

Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative (WHTI),
which requires all US citizens to possess a pass-
port to return home, impacts Bahamian tourism
after coming into effect on Tuesday.

Ms. Walkine. said: “We are monitoring it very

traditional franchise, the ‘quick getaway desti-
nation’.

weekend, and Ms Walkine said Puerto Rico and
ihe US Virgin Islands -—— both US territories —

as islands that did not require a passport.

Ms Walkine said the Bahamas could “lose some
of that business”, but while the WHTI could
harm the tourism sector, its impact may not be sig-
nificant. “Hopefully, it’ll be much ado about noth-
ing, fingers crossed,” Ms Walkine added.

Meanwhile, the Ministry of Tourism’s direc-
tor of statistics, Gary Young, revealed that some
60 per cent of tourist departure cards were
not being filled out, depriving this nation of
important information on the quality of visitor
experiences.

He acknowledged that the Ministry was “con-

ered” abou! tits, and had pui posters up at the
Lynden Pindiing International Airport to encour-
age that these be completed.

However, Mr Young said the main responsi-
bility for collecting these cards lay with the air-
lines, and there often did not seem to be “a prop-
er process” in place to facilitate this.

Ms Walkine added that the Ministry of Tourism
aimed to create spécific brand identities for every
island, marketing them as destinations with dif-
ferent attractions, as this “gives us our best chance
of achieving the long-term profitability and sus-
tainability we wish for each island.”

Mitchell makes
allegations against |
Carl Bethel |

FROM page one

Nassau Guardian on Monday,
22nd January, that he was sim-
ply doing a favour for a con-
stituent and that he was not
paid for it. I found the use of
the term ‘favour’ interesting.

“When I read the descrip-
tion of the individual to whom
Senator Carl Bethel gave this
‘favour’; it said he was a blind
man who was suffering from

' diabetes. I happened to recall

that a man of that description,
and from his former con-
stituency, visited me along
with his wife late last year to
complain about the fact that
he could not obtain visas for
his vessels,” Mr Mitchell said.

A further examination of
the files, Mr Mitchell said,
reveals that he asked the Per-
manent Secretary to review
this man’s complaint.

“T was advised that the rea-
son that visas had’ not been
granted was that this person
was suspected of being
involved in human smuggling.

“I wish to quote directly
from the written advice given
me on this subject yesterday:

““As previously informed
in December 2006, this per-
son is under the Security
watch of the Royal Bahamas
Police Force, for human
smuggling. Therefore, as a
result of the police informa-
tion and intelligence informa-
tion gathered by the Security
Clearance officer of the Con-
sular Division and conspiracy
implication for consular staff,
he was placed on the Stop List
of the Consular Division.
Once (name omitted) name
appears on the Consular Stop
List he is ineligible to receive
visas on behalf of anyone,”
Mr Mitchell said.’

The minister referred to an
earlier correspondence from
the police to the Permanent
Secretary with regard to the
individual who received visas
at the request of Mr Bethel.

“T quote from the letter’

written by the Assistant Com-
missioner of Police with
regard to the two persons:

the criticism as unwarranted
and misplaced, one source
telling The Tribune that the
number of tours offered by the
Bahamas was second only to
Mexico in the Caribbean
region, and that the cruise lines
were now copying their tour
ideas and itineraries on their
private islands.

There is also understood to
be concern that the Govern-
ment may have negotiated
agreements with the major
cruise lines without getting
input and feedback from the
private sector, and the fact that
it is asking Carnival and Royal
Caribbean to help finance port
redevelopments in Nassau
could be interpreted by the
cruise lines as a sign of weak-

ness on the Bahamas’ part.

Tribune Business has report-
ed for several years now on
questions surrounding the
Bahamas’ strategy to maximise
ihe economic benefits from
cruise tourism, and how it is
to achieve this.

Among the main concerns,
sources have told The Tribune,
is that per capita spending by
cruise ship passengers has fall-
en by around [1-12 per cent in
the 10 years to 2005, while
competing regional destina-
tions have all seen this yield
increase.

Another major issue is the
increasing tendency of cruise
ships to use their private
islands as first or second calls
in the Bahamas, sometimes
bypassing Nassau and Freeport
completely, which reduces the

‘trickle down’ effect of eco-
nomic benefits to Bahamian
businesses and operators.

It is understood that Disney
and Royal Caribbean have
recently applied to the Gov-
ernment to upgrade their pri-
vate islands at Castaway Cay
and Coco Cay respectively.

In addition, the cruise lines
themselves have been vocifer-
ous about the need to upgrade
facilities and attarctions in Nas-
sau, regarding the downtown
aréa as lacking amenities and
being unclean.

One source told The Tri-
bune it was estimated that
some 10-18,000. cruise passen-
gers per week were taken by
ferry to Paradise Island as
opposed to Bay Street, mean-
ing that some $700,000 in con-
sumer spending was not going

into Bahamian-owned busi-
nesses.

A March 2004 report, pre-
pared by the Florida-based
Management Resource Group
(MRG) for the Ministry of
Tourism, revealed that the
share of two to five-night cruis-
es in the Caribbean declined
by 30 per cent in the eight
years to 2003, falling from 76
per cent in 1995 to 46 percent
in 2003.

It attributed this drop large-
ly to the attractiveness and
growth in capacity of Cozumel,
particularly from Gulf Coast
home ports such as Houston.

Tourism Policies was intend-
ed to help shape a consensus in

The report said: “Since the
passage of cruise incentive leg-

for three.and four night cruises
to the Bahamas has changed
very little, rising from about
840,000 passengers to about

“During the same period,

“In 2003, about 50 per cent

About 46 per cent of the pri-

“Neither Nassau nor Grand

Bahamian enter-

incentives they give to hote-

Musicians said the develop-
ment of Bahamian culture as

being hindered by the lack of
assistance they received from
the Government and hoteliers,
and said that to move forward

Bahamians entertainers are
faced with, ranging from lack of
available funding for start up
opportunities, lack of educa-

aspiring musicians and enter-

that are given to foreign enter-

Mr Simms said it was unfor-
tunate that he has to pay duty
for items he purchases to
enhance his business and ele-
vate Bahamians, while the very
hotel he worked in can import

everything from bed linens

duty free under the Hotel

“And when I inquired to the
hotel if they can bring the items

added.

Robert Sands, senior vice -
president of administration and
public affairs for Baha Mar,
said the criticism was some-
what unfair, given that in the
past year, four hotels - Atlantis,
the Baha Mar properties, San-
dals and Breezes - spent more
than $5 million on Bahamian

entertainment, which included
bands, singers and Junkanoo
rushouts.

He added that the majority

‘of cultural events currently

occur at hotels because there
are limited venues elsewhere.

Mr Sands said the Nassau
Beach Hotel had proven to be
an icon in providing about four
different cultural experiences
at any time.

He said that Bahamian musi-

cians were often their own.

themselvess. Mr Sands said
they have to ensure that what
they are offering is not the
“same old tired act over and
over”. Aas

Instead, he encouraged them
to create new and exciting acts
with true island flavour.

Mr Sands said there needed
to be a definite, marketable
definition of Bahamian sound.
Other acts, such as storytelling,
also needed to be déveloped
so as to provide a variety of
experiences.

Mr Sands said that in the

past, the average guest stay was
10 days to two weeks, and it
was now three to five days. In
the past, he said something
must have lured guests to stay
for such lengths of time, and
said this must be recreated
now.

Sir Baltron Bethel, who
serves as the government nego-
tiator for a number of Heads of
Agreements with investors,
said the agreements strove to

create as many chances for

members, chiefly Paraguay.
who are complaining that the
agreement violates WTO rules
because it grants the Bahamas
and other Caribbean nations
trade preferences and bene-
fits that it does not receive.

This opposition has so far
blocked attempts by the US
to secure a waiver for the
CBI’s continuation from the
WTO until September 2008.
Some $92 million worth of
Bahamian goods were-export-
ed to the US in 2004 under
the CBI’s preferences, and this
amount had increased by 23
per cent during the first nine
months of 2005 to $78.779 mii-
lion.

Although Bahamian
exports under the Act in 2005
had increased from the
$64.034 million worth of goods
and services exported to the
US in the nine months to Sep-
tember 2004, they accounted
for a slightly lower proportion
of total US exports - 13.9 per
cent in 2005 compared to 14.1
per cent in 2004.

The US has indicated that
any replacement for the CBI
will be modelled along the
lines of the free trade agree-
ment it stuck with the Central
American Free Trade Asso-
ciation (CAFTA) and the

‘Dominican Republic.

This will be compliant with
WTO rules, and require the
trade preferences and bene-
fits to flow both ways. This
implies that the Bahamas
would have to allow US
imports into this nation duty-
free, an action that would
have major implications for
the tax system.

The CBI replacement
would also be similar to the
Economic Partnership Agree-
ment (EPA) that Cariforum
is negotiating with the Euro-
pean Union (EU) on the

-“Duty-free
access to the
US is absolutely
essential to out
business. Losing
this benefit
would result in
the likely closure
of the plant,
as production
would be moved
-to the US.’

— Mark VanDevelde

Bahamas’ and Caribbean’s
behalf.

Polymers International
exports to the UK from its
Freeport plani, and is also
concerned about maintaining
duty-free. access to that mar-
ket under the EPA.

Mr VanDevelde said:
“Exports to the UK account
for a substantial and valuable
portion of our existing busi-
ness. The tax breaks under the
current agreement make ship-
ping from the Bahamas a
viable option.

“However, if the situation
were to change and exports
became subject to import
duty, this route would become

uncompetitive and production

would switch to US suppliers.
The negative impact in the
Bahamas would be felt
overnight, resulting in lower
productivity and job losses.”
Mr VanDevelde added that
the EPA could help to open
further EU markets to Poly-
mers, but warned that “this
potential for growth would be
severely limited without the
benefits of duty free access”.
He confirmed, though, that
while a loss of duty-free access
to the UK and EU would not
be fatal for Polymers Interna-

tional’s Freeport operation,
production would decline at
the company, which employs
82 staff.

Mr VanDeveide said: “
Trade with the Uis provides a
significant per centage of busi-
ness, while the value. of poten-
tial growth in the EU would
be difficult to quantify.

“Loss of duty-free access
would significantly reduce
production, but would not
mean a complete shut-down
in operations.”

In terms of the EPA out-
come that Polymers wished to
see, Mr VanDevelde added:
“Following on trom our meet-
ings with the Minister of For-
eign Affairs earlier this month,
we appreciate the Govern-
ment is dealing with a very
complex situation, and have a
variety of issues to consider -
our interests only play a very
small part.

“Looking at the EPA pure-
ly from our point ot view, it
is important for us to retain
the benefits, as they relate to
us and our products, of the
Cotonou agreement.”

The EPA’s impact on Poly-
mers’ Freeport business is not
quite as severe as that indi-
cated in Ministry of Foreign
Affairs briefing document.

That said: “The Most
Favoured Nation Iaritf on
polymers range from 7- 12 per
cent, and the principals of
Freeport polymers have indi-
cated that if they lose their
duty-free entry into the EU

* market, it would not be prof-

itable for them to continue
their operation in Freeport.
“The loss to the Bahamas, if
Polymers were to leave, would
be the loss of 83 Bahamian
jobs in addition to negatively
impacting the activities of 10
Bahamian contractors, who
supply services to Polymers,
as well as the loss of approxi-
mately 10 per cent of Freeport
Power’s revenue, since Poly-

mers uses approximately 10 ~

per cent of the electricity gen-
erated by Freeport Power.”

_ Tony Blair skips debate

Minar

~ denounces calls to withdraw troops —

m@ LONDON



PRIME Minister Tony Blair
skipped the first government-
sponsored debate on the U.S.-
led invasion of Iraq since 2004
on Wednesday, but rejected an
opposition call to withdraw
troops from Iraq by October,
according to Associated Press.

Blair chose not to attend the
parliamentary session dissect-
ing Iraqi policy — sidestepping
the spotlight on the deeply
unpopular war. But before the
debate began, he said the oppo-
sition Liberal Democrats’ call
for a troop withdrawal was irre-
sponsible.

"That would send the most
disastrous signal to the people
that we are fighting in Iraq —

it's a policy that, whatever its |

superficial attractions may be, is
actually deeply irresponsible,"
Blair said during his weekly
appearance in the House of
Commons. He left before the
debate began.

Blair said he would report to
lawmakers on future strategy
following the completion of
Operation Sinbad, a joint
British and Iraqi mission tar-
geting police corruption and
militia influence in the south-
ern Iraqi city of Basra.

He said Iraqi Vice President
Tariq al-Hashemi had cautioned
against setting a timetable for
troop withdrawal during talks
in London on Jan. 15.

As lawmakers debated Iraq
policy, around 50 protesters
lined a frost-covered square
outside Parliament, calling for
the withdrawal of coalition
forces from Iraq.

Foreign Secretary Margaret
Beckett, opening the debate for
the government, said Operation
Sinbad offered the prospect of a

"turning point for Iraq, hope-
fully in the near future."

She said coalition forces
hoped to hand over responsi-
bilities for all 18 Iraqi provinces .
by November and that military
commanders estimated British-
controlled Maysan and Basra
would be transferred to local
security in the spring.

Britain's Defense Ministry
and Blair's Downing Street
office said they could not give
any specific date for the transfer
of the two southern Iraqi
provinces.

Opponents of the war hope
Blair's departure from office,
which he has said will take place
before September, will bring a
change in strategy.

Treasury chief Gordon
Brown, his likely successor, said
he hoped several thousand
British soldiers would be with-
drawn by December. —

Blair's official spokesman
declined to confirm on Wednes-
day whether — after most British
forces withdraw — some troops
would be deployed to secure
supply routes from southern
Iraq to U.S. positions.

The debate is the first to be
held on government time — and





































































































not as part of Westminster ses-
sions allocated for opposition
parties — for three years. It will
not include a vote for a change
in British policy.

Beckett defended Blair's
decision not to attend the
debate and said no other British
prime minister had ever "sub-
jected themselves to the scruti-
ny of parliament" as much as
Blair.

William Hague, foreign
affairs spokesman for the main
opposition Conservatives, said
that by failing to attend, Blair
had shown he preferred the
_"mentality of the bunker to the
open thinking of debate."

Hague criticized Blair and
Beckett for initially supporting
the findings of the Iraq Study
Group panel, headed by former
USS. Secretary of State. James
A. Baker III and former Demo-
cratic Congressman Lee Hamil-
ton, but later backing U.S. Pres-
ident George W. Bush’ s deci-
sion to send additional troops.

Bush's decision contrasted with
the study group's recommen-
dation for a gradual pullout.

"It gives the impression we
would say yes to anything the
White House wants to do,"
Hague said.

Liberal Democrat leader
Menzies Campbell claimed
Bush had only accepted the
‘parts of the study group report
that were in line with current
USS. policy.

He said a series of leaked
documents and testimony since
2003 had proven "the principle
objective of the United States
was regime change," not the
eradication of weapons of mass
destruction.

"It is no longer reasonable or
legitimate to ask our armed
forces to oar the burden any
longer," Campbell said. "It is
time to go.

Opposition Conservative par-
ty leader David Cameron
attended the debate, but did not
speak, his office said.

The bidding:
West North East South
1¢ 14@ Pass 3

Opening lead — two of hearts.

It is said that a little knowledge is
a dangerous thing, and this deal,
where South reached six clubs on the
sequence shown, would certainly
seem to provide support for that
argument. Most players with the
West hand would choose the king of
diamonds as their opening lead. It
simply wouldn’t occur to them to
make any other lead, and in the end,
they would wind up defeating the
slam.

In the actual case, however, West,
a Welaipown playerjled'a heart. He’

realized from the bidding that South
almost certainly had no diamonds,
and thought it might be essential to
establish a heart trick for the defense
before declarer could establish
dummy’s spades and dispose of his
heart losers.

But, alas, West’s opening heart
lead proved fatal. Declarer won with
dummy’s queen, ruffed a diamond,
played the K-Q of trumps and then
led the four of spades.

This presented West with an
insoluble problem. If he went up
with the ace, South would later dis-
card his J-8-5 of hearts on dummy’s
spades. And if West followed low
instead, declarer would win the
spade with dummy’s queen and
return a low spade to the jack and
ace, forcing West to concede the
slam whatever he did next.

If West had led a diamond origi-

nally — the so-called automatic lead '

— declarer would have gone down
regardless of how he proceeded.
There would have been no way for
him to avoid losing a spade and a
heart, assuming best defense. ;

Was West simply unlucky because
he was smart enough to figure out
that South was void of diamonds, or
should he have led a diamond any-
way? It’s hard to say, but of one thing
we're sure: A little knowledge can be
a dangerous thing!

SHANGHAI, China

CHINA has sent men into
orbit and launched dozens of
satellites, but its test of a satel-

- jite-killing weapon is shaking up
perceptions about where the Chi-
nese space program is headed,
according to Associated Press.

The test, confirmed by Beijing
on Tuesday after nearly a two-
week silence, has drawn criticism
from the U.S. and Japan, and
touched off fears of an arms race
in space.

The Chinese test “was an
overtly military, very provocative
event that cannot be spun any
other way,” said Rob Hewson,
the London-based editor of
Jane’s Air-Launched Weapons.
“So a bald assessment of that is
that it’s a big fat challenge.”

The test is a shot across the
bow of U.S. efforts to remain pre-
dominant in space and on the
ground, where its military is heav-
ily dependent on networks of
satellites, particularly the low-
altitude imaging intelligence
models that help it find and hit
targets. Japan, also seen as a
regional rival, is similarly vulner-
able, while any potential conflicts
in space would put much of the
industrialized world’s economies
at risk, given that satellites are
used to relay phone calls and data
and to map weather systems.

The Jan. 11 test, first reported
last week by the magazine Avia-
tion Week, destroyed a defunct
Chinese weather satellite by hit-
ting it with a warhead launched
on board a ballistic missile. That
made China‘only the third coun-
try after Russia and the U.S. to
shoot down anything in space.

Before that, China’s military
and its space program were large-
ly seen as capable, but lagging in
mnovation. Still, its unclear what
message China intended to send,
underscoring the opacity of Chi-
na’s space and military programs

\- and deepening suspicion over its

avowed commitment to the pure-
ly peaceful use of space.

Beijing has repeatedly pledged
peaceful development of its army
— the world’s largest — but has
caused unease among its neigh-
bors by announcing double-digit
military spending increases near-
ly every year since the early
1990s.

The anti-satellite test threat-
ens to “undermine relationships
and fuel military tensions
between space-faring nations,”
David Wright, of the Massachu-
setts-based Union of Concerned
Scientists, said in a statement
posted on the group’s Web site
that was typical of criticisms from
the U.S. scientific community.

On Tuesday, the Foreign Min-
istry said it acknowledged holding
the test to the U.S., Japan and
other countries, but insisted it
opposed any arms race in space.
Both Washington and Tokyo
have criticized the test as under-
mining efforts to keep weapons
out of space.

In Washington, the Defense
Department and President
Bush’s National Security Council
declined to comment Tuesday.

However, while China’s act
looked aggressive, some U.S. offi-

cials were skeptical that Beijing

would do anything to attack the
satellites of the United States or
Japan — key trading partners.
According to the CIA World
Fact Book, China sold more to
the United States in 2005 than
any other nation — 21.4 percent
of its exports. Hong Kong was
second, with 16.3 percent, and
Japan was third with 11 percent.

China has released no details
publicly, although Aviation Week
said the missile lifted off from or
near the Xichang base in south-
west China, the country’s main
commercial satellite launch cen-
ter. The military’s missile corps,
the 2nd Artillery, likely took part
in the launch as well.

Knocking out U.S. military

"OW De 5

satellites would be a priority in
any regional war agains! the U.S.
or Japan, either over Taiwan or
other territorial claims, or to keep
its sea lanes open for deliveries of
oil and gas.

One immediate casualty of the
test could be budding ties
between the Chinese and the
U.S. and European space pro-
grams, experts said. NASA’s
chief administrator Michael Grif-
fin visited China last year to dis-
cuss cooperation projects, and
China has partnered with the
European Space Agency on the
Galileo navigation satellite net-
work to compete with the US,
Global Positioning System.

Now the test “will make it very
difficult for the U.S. to talk about
space cooperation with China any
time soon,” said Jobn Pike, ditec-
tor of GlobalSecurityv.org, a
defense, security and space intel-
ligence consultancy based tn
Alexandria, Va.

Some say China isn’t the only
one rushing to acquire military
capabilities in space.

President Bush signed an order
in October tacitly asserting the
US. right to space weapons and

opposing the development of

treaties or other measures
restricting them — a move some
analysts speculated may have
helped spur the Chinese test.

Bush has also pushed an ambi-
tious program of space-based
missile defense and the Penia-
gon is working on missiles
ground lasers and other technoal-
ogy to shoot down satellites.

However, the Pentagon’s bud-
get is severely constrained by Iraq
and Afghanistan and a drive to
replace outdated planes and
ships, making space prograius a
lower priority and prompting
some. to warn the U.S. could be
losing ground in space.

“We are falling behind, if noi

losing, on many measures of

space superiority,” Detense
Department contractor Stephen

~ arlt

Hill said Monday at a forum in
Washington.

China’s promotion of anti-
satellite weapons is underpinned
by its doctrine of “asymmetric
warfare” that envisions defeat-
ing the U.S. or another power-
ful foe by knocking away key
capabilities rather than through
frontal assault.

- Anti-satellite weapons devel-
opment has likely benefited from
the increasing attention garnered
by China’s space program, which
entered a new era with its first
manned space flight in 2003.

A second mission in 2005 put
(wo astronauts, or “yuhangyuan,’
into orbit for a week and a third
manned launch is planned for

_next year. This year, China plans

to put into space a Junar probe
which will orbit the moon at an
altitude of 125 miles.

Despite the successes, China's
space program had been seen as
lacking in innovation, overly cau-
tious and, perhaps most tmpor-
tantly, non-threatening to Wash-
ington. That evaluation may now
have to change.

“You could argue that China is
getting ready to do a lot of things
that the U.S. is now losing the
ability to do,” Hewson said. “So
that in itself is a challenge to the
US.”

Tour operators South Ocean developer
concerned over

cruise line deals

@ By NEIL HARTNELL |
Tribune Business Editor

BAHAMIAN tour opera-
tors and excursion providers
yesterday met with Ministry of
Tourism officials to express
coricern over whether the Gov-
ernment had agreed incentive
deals with the major cruise
lines without their knowledge,
sources told The Tribune.

Members of the Bahamas:

Association of Shore Excur-
sion Providers (BASE) are
understood to have met} with
Ministry officials during
National Tourism Week to
express disquiet over a Tribune
Business article published on
Friday, January 19, 2007, which
tevealed that the Bahamas had
concluded incentive agree-
ments with Carnival and Roy-
al Caribbean Cruise Lines.

In the article, David John--

son, the Ministry of Tourism’s



deputy director-general for
planning, investment and busi-
ness development, said the
Government and cruise lines
were in the process of “for-
malising” the agreement, and
that similar talks were due to
begin this quarter with the

likes of Disney and Norwegian

Cruise Lines.
-Sources said that both the
tour operators and Nassau
Tourism and Development
Board (NTDB) are unhappy
with comments made by Mr
Johnson in the article, particu-
larly on downtown Bay Street
being a “turn off” for tourists,
and that there was not enough
variety and imagination in the

tour options on offer to cruise

ship passengers.

ticular, are understood to view

Agreement with the Govern-
ment by the end of the 2007
first quarter, the man spear-
heading the development told
The Tribune yesterday, as talks
continue with potential hotel
and casino brands.

Roger Stein, the project’s
managing director, said the
project was progressing “quite
well”. He added: “I’m negoti-
ating with a couple of four-star
brands for the casino and
hotel. I’m also in negotiations
with the marina and restaurant
people, to build the marina as
a joint venture.” ‘

Mr Stein said talks were also
being held with five-star oper-
ators. The Tribune was told

that developers are in negotia-
tions with Hard Rock on a
contract to manage/operate the
four-star hotel and casino com-
ponent of the project, but Mr
Stein declined to comment on
that..

He. said, though, that
designs, documents and pro-
posals were being sent back
and forth between the devel-
opers and potential operating
partner.

“I’m in the midst of going
through the Heads of Agree-
ment process with the Gov-
ernment, and we’re hoping to
be done by the end of the first
quarter,” Mr Stein said.

He added that redevelop-

ment and refurbishment of ©

South Ocean’s golf course was
“partly finished”, and the
course could again be open by
June or July 2007 as a pay-as-
you-play operation, rather than
a membership one.

day said three different poten-

with Lehman Brothers’ private
equity arm to purchase Grand
Bahama’s Royal Oasis resort,
one of them being Harcourt

dential units, enabling South

in, plua a mega-yacht marina,

facilities. ;
Under the terms of a previ-
ous agreement with the Gov-
ernment, the South Ocean
property has a casino licence,
but this will only kick-in when
the property reaches the size of
500 rooms. It currently has
around 220 rooms, having been
closed since July 2004, and
most of the existing buildings
are likely to be demolished. ~
Mr Stein added that the first
phase could possibly involve
as much as 600 units, some 400
four-star hotel rooms, 100 con-
dos and 130 five-star units.
He said the revitalised South
Ocean, together with the $1.3
billion Albany project next
door, would make southwest-

ern New Providence and the -

whole southern part of the
island “more of a destination

hopes for Q1 agreement

spot”..

With Albany and Lyford
Cay nearby, the resort com-
plex would not only have a
critical mass of high net worth
people to draw from, encour- —
aging them to remain.on the
southern side of the island, but
attract people to visit from
northern New Providence.

Other plans for South Ocean
include a public tennis club,
plus an amphitheatre able to
seat 2,200-2,500 people.

Mr Stein said he was in the
middle of economic and envi-
ronmental impact studies, and
as a result was unable to give
specific numbers on the eco-
nomic and employment impact
the project would have for the
Bahamas.

He added that the develop-
ers had hired ERM from Puer-
to Rico to oversee the envi-
ronmental impact assessment

Imost 90 per cent of

tourist room inven-

tories in the
Bahamas will be owned by vis-
itors once Baha Mar’s $2.4 bil-
lion Cable Beach expansion
becomes operational, with a
Ministry of Tourism director-
general yesterday saying this
presented an opportunity for
this nation to “partner” with
its visitors.

Some 70 per cent of the
Bahamas’ current room inven-
tory is residential, such as con-
dos, second homes, timeshares
and fractional ownership, due
to the industry switching from
the traditional hotel model to
mixed-use resort developments
that generate better financial
returns

David Johnson, the Ministry
of Tourism director-general for
planning, investment and busi-
ness development, told the
National Tourism Week:
“Almost 90 per cent of the
room inventory once Baha
Mar opens will be product that
the visitor owns. This has
tremendous opportunities and
implications for us as a desti-
nation.” .

Mr Johnson said the fact that
second homes and other such
residential options were in high
demand in the Bahamas, indi-
cated that such residents must
like the destination and that
these purchases were good
investments.

If the Bahamas “embraced”
these visitors and secured their
investments, Mr Johnson sug-
gested that they could become
a “non-paid sales arm” for this
nation, selling others on the
benefits of investing and vaca-
tioning in.the Bahamas via

word of mouth, based on their
positive experiences.

He added that second home
owners and other visitors who
invested in residential owner-
ship were usually high net
worth individuals and families,
exactly the target market the
Bahamas was going after.

Mr Johnson explained that
by partnering with such visi-
tors, the Bahamas would have
a “much greater opportunity
to secure the strength and
health of our business with our
customers,’who are our part-
ners,

“We have the opportunity
to use our visitors as the pri-
mary vehicle to promote our
destination going forward,” he
added.

In her presentation to
National Tourism Week, Ver-
nice Walkine, the Ministry of
Tourism’s director-general,
said much of the $13 billion in
investment committed to
resort development in the
Bahamas was for mixed-use
models, featuring condo-
hotels, single and multi-family
residential complexes, and
timeshares and fractional own-
ership.

This was because develop-
ers were using visitors to
finance their resort projects
through pre-sales, as opposed
to the traditional hotel model,
based on attracting a sufficient
number of guests to fill rooms
at rates sufficient to cover costs
and generate a profit.

‘Ms Walkine said Caribbean
destinations had been “hard
pressed” to maintain the finan-
cial viability of such models,
given that it often resulted in
attracting low-end visitors at
high costs, often seeing these
exceed the net returns.

_.. She added that as a result of

Bahamas would have an addi-
tional 5,000 rooms by 2010,
mostly very upscale and tar-
geted at the elite five-star sta-
‘tus.

A tourism lecturer pointed
out that by aiming at the five-
star ratings, the Bahamas
would need three hotel
employees for every one of
these rooms, meaning that this
nation would need 15,000 extra
hotel workers.

Frank Comito, the Bahamas
Hotel Association’s executive
vice-president, admitted that
finding these workers was “a

huge concern”, and that while
the industry was working on
this, it had “ta whole lot more
to do”.

He added that the BHA had
to “ratchet up” its scholarship
programme “in a big way”.

Cingular 4Q profit nearly quadruples

fourth quarter.

BY MICHELLE ROBERTS
Associated Press

SAN ANTONIO — Cingular
Wireless, the nation’s largest cell-
phone provider, said Wednesday its
fourth-quarter profit nearly quadru-
pled, boosted by customer growth

during the holidays.

Cingular said it earned $782 mil-
lion during the fourth quarter, com-
pared with $204 million in the same

‘quarter of 2005. The company

reported revenue of $9.8 billion, up 10
percent from $8.8 billion in the year-
ago period.

The company, which was
rebranded under the AT&T name
last week, was a joint venture of
Atlanta-based BellSouth and AT&T
before AT&T completed its $86 bil-
lion purchase of BellSouth last





month. The wireless company will
report earnings as part of the parent
company in future quarters.

The wireless unit’s growth in the
fourth quarter was driven in part by a
net increase of 2.4 million customers
during the holiday quarter, typically
the heaviest selling season for cell-
phones. Cingular has more than 60
million customers.

They said one more quarter-point nudge from the cur-

That view was bolstered by comments from Bank of

Netflix earnings excee

BY MICHAEL LIEDTKE
Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO — Net-
flix’s fourth-quarter profit sur-
passed analyst expectations as
654,000 more subscribers
signed up for its online DVD
rental service, but the cus-
tomer growth lagged Block-
buster’s — a development that
underscores the stiffening
competition between the
rivals.

Despite the intensifying
battle, Netflix provided a bull-
ish 2007 outlook that helped
boost its recently drooping
stock price by more than 7
percent late Tuesday.

The Los Gatos-based com-
pany predicted it will add as
many as 2.1 million subscribers
this year to keep pace with
Blockbuster, which hopes to
attract another 2 million cus-
tomers to its online DVD
rental service.

“Together, the two compa-
nies are growing the online
DVD rental market faster than
either could on its own,” Net-
flix Chief Executive Reed Has-
tings told analysts during a
Wednesday conference call.

Netflix also reaffirmed its
previously stated goal to
increase its 2007 profit by
about 20 percent to as much as
$60 million.

COMMUNICATIONS

In its most recent quarter,
Netflix said it earned $14.9 mil-
lion, or 2] cents per share, dur-
ing the final three months of
2006. That was down 61 per-
cent from net income of $38.2
million, or 57 cents per share,
in the prior year, but those
results were pumped up by a
$35 million windfall from
taxes.

The 2006 quarter easily
exceeded the average earnings
estimate of 15 cents per share
among analysts surveyed by
Thomson Financial. —

REVENUE UP 44 PERCENT

Revenue for the period
totaled $277.2 million, a 44
percent increase from $193
million in 2005.

Netflix’s shares rose 99
cents Wednesday to close at
$22.75 on the Nasdaq Stock
Market, then surged by
another $1.67, or 7.3 percent, in
extended trading. Netflix’s
stock price had slipped by 18
percent during the past three
weeks amid concerns that the
fourth-quarter results would
be a disappointment.

As it turned out, the perfor-
mance enabled Netflix to hit
all the ambitious targets that
management established at
2006’s outset.

The company attracted an

ers off older technologies.
“We started with a great plan
and we’ve executed flaw-
lessly.”

The company continues to
project low double-digit
growth in revenue in 2007,
driven by increased use of
data services. Data service
sales are offsetting declining
revenue in voice services, he
said.

Sigman also predicted
sales of iPhones, Apple’s new
celiphone-music player,
would drive wireless com-
pany subscriber additions in
the second half of the year.
Cingular has an exclusive
multiyear deal to offer the
much-hyped device, which
will be sold in both Apple and
Cingular retail stores. The
wireless company has not dis-
closed how service activation

* will be done.

“The only word to describe
the iPhone is wow,’ ” Sigman
said. “I have no doubt the
iPhone will be a big seller.”

The rebranding of Cingular

to AT&T will be done aggres-
sively, but Sigman said com-
pany executives will rely on
market research to tell them
when it’s time to remove the
old Cingular signs. He hopes
the transition will be done by
this year’s holiday season.

Chief Financial Officer
Pete Ritcher said Wednesday
that concerns about the risks
of rebranding are fair, but the
company believes marketing
under a united brand will be
more effective in the long
term, aS more services are
bundled.

“You can pretty well call it
anything you want to as long
as you offer good service and
have strong marketing behind
it,” said Ritcher, who noted
that building off a brand like
AT&T is easier than branding
from scratch.

additional 2.1 million subscrib-
ers during the entire year,
bringing its customer count to
6.3 million through December.
The growth fueled a full-year
profit of $49.1 million, or 71
cents per share, a 17 percent
increase from $42 million, or
64 cents per share, in 2005.
Revenue for 2006 climbed 46
percent to $997 million.
Despite the company’s
steady progress, many inves-
tors remain skeptical about
Netflix’s staying power

because of the twin threats
posed by Blockbuster and an
anticipated expansion of video
available for delivery over the
Internet. me

BLOCKBUSTER CONCERN

Blockbuster looms as the
bigger concern right now.
After starting slowly in online
DVD rentals, the Dallas-based
company appears to be gain-
ing momentum with a recently
introduced twist that allows
subscribers to return movies

PAUL SAKUMA/AP

to the store instead of sending
them back through the mail.

The “Total Access” promo-
tion helped Blockbuster add
700,000 new subscribers dur-
ing the quarter to increase its
online customer base to about
2.2 million.

Although it didn’t grow
quite as fast as its rival during
the fourth quarter, Netflix
added more customers than in
any other three-month period
since it launched its service in
1999.

POSSIBLE ‘HEADWIND”’

The advertising campaign
promoting Blockbuster’s Total
Access program is expected to
create a “headwind” that
might retard Netflix’s cus-
tomer growth during the first
quarter, Hastings acknowl-
edged in Wednesday’s confer-
ence call.

But Hastings believes
Blockbuster will be hurt more
by the cutthroat competition
as the Total Access promotion
siphons away even more reve-
nue from the chain’s strug-
gling stores. Blockbuster
already has closed hundreds of
stores in the last three years as
more households embrace the
DVD-by-mail concept pio-
neered by Netflix. :

united under the AT&T brand
in just two years.

Still, company executives
insist the merger allows syn-
ergies and opportunities for
new sales. Last Friday, AT&T
began allowing customers to
make and receive calls
between landline and wireless
users at no cost.

Company-owned wireless
stores will soon also be recon-
figured to help sell AT&T’s
other services like DSL and
video services, Ritcher said.

Increased foot traffic from
customers seeking AT&T’s
other data services should
help the wireless unit and
offer opportunities for bun-

dled services, Ritcher said.

The wireless business
reported net income for the
year of $2.5 billion, compared
to $333 million in 2005 and
projected strong growth to
continue in 2007.

Shares of AT&T rose $1.34

Excluding expenses such

31 cents a share, beating the
28-cent-average estimate of
22 analysts in a Bloomberg
survey. Revenue was esti-
mated to be $1.67 billion.

During the quarter, EBay
repurchased 31 million shares,

ny’s revenue.

EBay’s new listings grew in
the fourth quarter as consum-
ers and sellers used the site
over the holidays. EBay users
posted 610 million new list-
ings in the fourth quarter.

“There were a couple of
hot consumer electronics
products,” said Chief Finan-

interview. “Across the board,
our marketplaces had an
excellent quarter.”

EBay imposed higher fees
in August in a bid to increase

he added that Bush was

Sales growth slowed as
customers also look to com-
petitors such as Google Inc. to
complement their EBay auc-
tion listings. This quarter’s
gain is the slowest in at least
seven years since the com-
pany went public in 1998.

To fend off competition
from Checkout, PayPal in
November offered as much
$100 million in holiday
rebates and free shipping.

“PayPal really has critical
mass at this point,” said Reed
Bender, who helps manage
$200 million in assets includ-
ing EBay shares at Robert

Pasadena, California. “There’s
been very little impact from
Google Checkout. The ven-

Merkel, in her comments,

the Bush speech — citing his
call for a reduction of carbon
emissions — but also named
secure energy supplies as one

Russian President Vladimir

lowing free market rules,” she

ds analyst estimates

appears to be chipping away at
the amount of revenue that
Netflix collects from its sub-
scribers. In the fourth quarter,
Netflix received an average of
about $15 per month from its
subscribers, down from about
$16 per paying customer at the
end of 2005.

That trend seems likely to’
continue because Netflix just
lowered the fee on its lowest-
priced plan from $5.99 to $4.99
per month.

In an effort to provide its
subscribers with more instant
gratification, Netflix last week
unveiled a new feature that
will stream a limited number
of movies over the Internet.

The “Watch Now” service,
scheduled to be rolled out
gradually through June, has
received mixed reviews so far
because the movies can only
be viewed on personal com-
puters equipped with the Win-
dows operating system and a
high-speed Internet connec-
tion.

A limited selection of about
1,000 movies, compared to the
70,000 titles in Netflix’s selec-

‘tion, also has provoked some

grumbling.

Netflix hopes to add about
4,000 more movies to its
Watch Now service by the end
of this year.

“We believe that 5.5 per-

rates as growth loses some

- momentum over the coming

months and inflation heads
back down,” said Global
Insight chief U.K. economist
Howard Archer.

Last month’s unexpected
rate hike had fueled the
pound’s recent rise against
the U.S. dollar to within one
cent of the $2 level on Tues-
day, sending the British cur-
rency to its highest level since
the week before the so-called
“Black Wednesday” in Sep-
tember 1992 when Britain
crashed out of the European
Exchange Rate Mechanism.

The revelation of the tight

“A test of $2 is off the cards
for the time being,” said
David Brown, European econ-
omist at Bear Stearns.

However, the pound is

‘likely to resume its upward

rates again in the coming
months.

Analysts also point to

THE TRIBUNE



Concerns raised over

off-propert

@ By CARA BRENNEN-BETHE!.
Tribune Business Reporter

he Ministry of Tourism’s director-gen-
eral yesterday questioned whether the
Bahamas was willing to provide the olff-
property experience, infrastructure and enyi-
ronment to match the demands of its upscale vis-
itors and resorts, adding that it was “simply
unacceptable” for this nation to tolertae dilap-
idated buildings and other debris.

Vernice Walkine encouraged all Bahamians
that the time had come to raise the standars
and quality of the tourism product.

“For every million dollars of investment in
these new models of mixed-use. upscale luxury
properties, how much ought we to invest to also
raise the standards and quality of our sur-
roundings, our environment. in order that they
might be deemed commensurate with the expec-
tations fitting of the new tourism client and
property developer,” said Ms Walkine.

“What do we need to build and enhance the
necessary capabilities - technical and otherwise?
Or are we happy to go about our merry way and
live with dilapidated. unkempt. unpainted sur-
roundings which are totally unappealing to our
own eyes, let alone the visitors.”

To illustrate her point. Ms Walkine showed
slides of the scenery that greeted visitors when
they travelled into Nassau, Exuma and Grand
Bahama all not very attractive images.

These imaged, she pointed out, were what
the likes of Four Seasons Emerald Bay guests
saw when they took a $60 each-way taxi ride
into Georgetown to experience a Bahamian
restaurant. The meal for a family of four would
usually cost betweenb $120-$180, making the
whole excursion a $300 event.

“The mere fact that we rely so heavily on the
strength and viability of our tourism product ts
reason and justification that our commitment.
that our resolve to sustaining our environment,
oughi to be strong and rebulidiig efforts (alter
the hurricane season) deliberate and swift,” she
added. ’

Beach erosion, coroded sireets, buildings that
remained shells of their former selves, heaps

of garbage and debris were “simply unaccept-
able” for the period that they had been Icft to
endure in Grand Bahama following the 2004

and 2005 hurricanes.

Ms Walkine added that }ieeport’s Garden
of the Groves, once a prime tourist attraction,
was now “locked-away and forgotten, and trans-
formed into a common dump site”.

She added that consumers now have a wealth:

., Bahamas was “hard pressed to provide for our- |
- selves”.

of travel options, including non-traditional mar-
kets such as Dubai, Turkey and the Red Sea.

“We simply do not have the luxury of inade-
quate planning, nor of being anything less than
expeditious and deliberate in our actions,” Ms
Walkine said.

She added that the onus to change these
things lay with a commitment by all Bahamians
that tourism was not only everyone’s business,
but their responsibility.

Second home owners had a deep interest in
the Bahamas, Ms Walkine said, requiring enter-
tainment, restaurants, bars, spas and salons, but
sas. warned that they wanted activities that the

SECURITY ASSOCIATION

meets with Minister
Of National Security



















Bottom Left: Mr Arlington Cox, Vice-President of the Professional Security Association of The
Bahamas (PSAB); Mrs Cynthia Pratt, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of National Security; Mr
Byron C. Rodgers, Founder and Presiden tof the PSAB; Mr Peter D. Isaacs, UnderSecretary of The
Ministry of National Security.





Standing Left: Directors of the PSAB, Mr Leo P. Thurston, Mr Denzil Rodgers, Mr Ian M. Jupp and
. Mr Latore T. Mackey.






The Professional Security Association of the Bahamas (PSAB) made a
courtesy visit to The Minister of National Security. During the deliberation,
The Minister was very receptive and supportive todate on what the PSAB
had accomplished. She applauded the efforts of the PSAB and was very
encouraged to witness the fruition of the initial struggle of The Professional
Security Association of the Bahamas which became a legal entity in 2000.








Minister-Pratt and Mr Isaacs, the Undersecretary, both endorsed the fact
that security must play:a vital role in working with the police to help curb or
stem the growth of criminal activities. The Minister further reiterated and
confirmed that “training” was of utmost importance and should be
implemented in all areas of the security profession to demonstrate a level
of professionalism, operating with one voice.








Mr Byron c. Rodgers, the President of the PSAB, followed by other directors
present, assured the Minister of National Security that this body will endeavour
to do its best in the performance of carrying out it’s mandate, and to work
with the Police. Mr Rodgers further ensured the Minister that, with the
“blessings” of her Ministry and the Government of The Bahamas, once the
Professional Security Association of the Bahamas is in receipt of “Statutory
Protection and is allowed to Self-Regulate its own activities, the results
of our “partnership” would realize tremendous benefits for both concerns.

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) —
AirTran Holdings Inc. asked a
court Tuesday to force Mid-
west Air Group Inc. to release
its shareholder list, the discount
carrier’s latest effort in its hos-

tile bid for ‘the regional carrier.

Orlando-based AirTran has
accused Milwaukee-based Mid-
west of trying to block the deal,
first offered in October at $290
million and sweetened last
month to $345 million in a
direct bid to shareholders. Mid-
west has until Thursday to

respond to the most recent
offer and has made no public
comment about it.

AirTran said that Midwest is
refusing to release its share-
holder names in violation of
New York state law. The New

Midwest spokeswoman Car-

AirTran provided the materials
and paid for postage and han-
dling, she said.

“We’re certainly willing and
able to communicate their
information to shareholders,”
Skornicka said. “We’re just not
interested in distributing the
list.”

The most recent deal would
give shareholders $13.25 a

bid has become increasingly

taking out competing adver-

papers.

Midwest rejected the first

US budget deficit
suffering ‘cancer’

lm By GERRY SMITH
Cox News Service

WASHINGTON — The fed-
eral deficit has been “diagnosed
with cancer” and will ruin the
economy unless dramatic long-
term reforms are created to rein
in spending, Comptroller Gen-
eral David Walker said Tues-
day.

Testifying before the House
Budget Committee, Walker said
an overhaul of entitlement pro-
grams, spending policies and tax
reform would redirect the bud-
get from its “imprudent and
unsustainable path.”

“The problem is not the short
term, it’s the long term,” Walk-
er said. “We do not face an
immediate heart attack, but we
have been diagnosed with can-
cer.”

Walker, who heads the Gov-
ernment Accountability Office,
the investigative arm of Con-
gress, stopped short of outlining
specific proposals.

But he estimated that com-
prehensive reform of Medicare
and Social Security would take
at least 20 years.

“So we need to get started
now,” he said.

Walker said the situation will
become dire over the next four
years as the first “baby
boomers” become eligible for
Social Security and Medicare
benefits, a period he called a
“demographic tsunami.”

The government’s total lia-
bilities and commitments to
social insurance programs has
soared from about $20 trillion in
2000 to about $50 trillion today,
primarily due to the $9 trillion
cost of Medicare alone, Walker
said.

That’s about four times the
nation’s total output, or 95 per-
cent of the estimated net worth
of every American, he noted.

In other words, he said, the
typical American household has

n “implicit debt” of over nine
times their annual income.

“That’s like having a mort-








gage but no house,” Walker
said. .

The U.S. has endured chron-
ic budget deficits since shortly
after the Bush administration
took office, stemming from a
slowdown in the economy, tax
cuts, growing domestic security
costs, the war in Iraq, and bur-
geoning government health care
costs.for senior citizens.

After peaking at a record
$412.7 billion in fiscal 2004,
those deficits dropped to $247.7
billion by fiscal 2006.

But they will grow wider
when annual surpluses in Social
Security begin to decline in 2009
and run out in 2017, Walker
said.

After the hearing, Rep. Lloyd
Doggett, D-Texas, a newly
appointed member of the
House Budget Committee,
attributed the threats to enti-
tlement programs to bad policy
decisions by the Bush adminis-
tration.

“Seniors and the disabled,
who rely on Medicare and
Social Security, should not have
to bear the entire burden of the
political alchemists, who falsely
claimed they could turn tax cuts
for the wealthy into balanced
budgets.” Doggett said in a
statement.

Tony Fratto, a White House
spokesman, said the president
has been encouraging “anyone

who will come to the table” to
help reform the entitlement
programs.

“The reason these programs
are under-funded -has almost
nothing to do with the annual
fiscal situation and has a lot to
do with demographics and the
formulation of these programs,”
Fratto said.

During the hearing, dubbed
“Why Deficits Matter,” Walker
warned that future generations
will suffer if lawmakers fail to
rein in long-term government
spending.

“If you care about the future
of our country, our children and
our grandchildren, the answer is
a clear: ‘Yes, they do matter.”

At any one moment
there are a million ways to have fun.

Christmas for them. I figured
I’d pay the cards off later.”
But Gilbert, who is 62 and
living on Social Security and
disability benefits, found she
couldn’t deal with the more
than $7,000 she accumulated
on her cards — or with the
phone calls from bill collectors.
With the help of Novadebt
counseling, she’s been whit-
tling down the balance since

’ last summer, she said.

“This Christmas, I bought
what I could afford and that
was it,” Gilbert said. “Every-
one understood.”

Sacha Millstone, a senior
vice president at the Millstone
Evans Group in Boulder,
Colo., said that although some
consumers feel the pain of
overwhelming credit card bills
in January and February, it’s
often a symptom of a deeper
problem.

“T believe that many people
who overspend at the holidays
overspend all the time,” she
said.

“They maybe do it a little
bit more at the holidays.”

As a result, Millstone, whose
company is affiliated with Ray-
mond James & Associates Inc.
financial advisers, believes con-
sumers who are in credit card
trouble need to work on a
long-term solution.

“Start by looking back at the
past year to determine what
you actually spent,” she said.
“Next, create a spending plan
for all of 2007.”

The plan will be more real-
istic if the consumer can do

projections based on actual
spending in the previous year,
Millstone pointed out.

Once this has been done, it’s
easier for most people to iden-
tify where they’re overspend-
ing and where they can find
“extra” money to pay down
bills, she said.

“Let’s say you discover
youre spending $8,000 a year
on clothes,” Millstone said.
“You have to ask, "Js that a
priority for us?’ If not, maybe
you're just doing it out of habit
or not thinking about it at all.”

Engineer

Jack Lazar, a 58-year-old civ-
il engineer, and his wife Lisa
started spending heavily on
credit cards in 2003 and 2004
and continued through the
2005 holiday season.

The Lazars, who live in Put-
nam Valley, N.Y., realized
about a year ago that they
were falling behind. With the

- help of credit counselors, they

were able to make a budget,
increase their monthly card
payments — and start saving
more than $100 a month as an
emergency cushion.

Lazar said he switched to
using a debit card instead of a
credit card so that he wasn’t
building more debt, and the
couple became more careful
about spending.

“For the holidays in 2006,
we probably spent 10 percent
of what we spent in 2005,”
Lazar said. :

hopes to throw a party later
this year for family and friends.

Shore, the Novadebt coun-
selor, said many people have to
come to terms with what is
causing their debt problems,
which typically is spending
more than they take in.

“Classically, someone will
say, I lost my job,” she said.
“Then you ask, when was that,
and the answer is ’two months
ago.’ And they’re collecting
unemployment insurance. But
they have $40,000 in credit
card debt. That obviously start-
ed happening more than .two
months ago.”

She believes people trying
to get out of debt need to track
their spending for a while
because “it can be a real eye
opener” as to where the mon-'
ey actually is going.

Next, people need to make a
chart of their debts with the
monthly amounts due, interest
rates and totals.

Shore said consumers have
to begin paying more than the
minimum to get the balances
to start dropping. But, she
added, they also have to be
realistic.

“It’s like when you go on a
diet,” Shore said. “You tell
yourself, ’I’m never going to ~
have a cookie again.’ Then you
have a cookie and fall off the
diet.

“With debt repayment, if
you make too strict — Pll nev-
er go out to eat again — you're
not going to be able to stick to
it. You need to give yourself
some leeway.”

health insurance

@ By KEVIN FREKING

Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON (AP) —

President Bush’s proposed tax
deduction for health insurance
appears to be shaping up as a
tough sell in the Democratic
Congress.

Rep. Pete Stark, D-Calif.,
said Monday that the tax
changes, which Bush will pro-
mote in. Tuesday night’s State
of the Union address, would
encourage employers to stop
providing health insurance.

“Under the guise of tax
breaks, the president is pur-
suing a policy designed to
destroy the employer-based
health care system through
which 160 million people
receive coverage,” the law-
maker said.

Stark, who oversees a key
House Ways and Means sub-
committee, said he would not
consider holding hearings on
the proposal, which includes
a trade-off. Contributions
from employers toward health
insurance would begin to be
treated as taxable income. At
the same time, a standard
deduction for taxpayers with
health insurance would be set
at $15,000 for families and
$7,500 for individuals.

The White House says 80
percent of workers with health
insurance through their jobs
would see a tax cut as a result
of the change. But about 20
percent would see a tax
increase — those workers
whose health insurance cost
more than the standard deduc-
tion.

The change in tax policy is
one of two major health pro-
posals announced by Bush last
weekend. The other would

people receive coverage.”

going to hospitals and other
facilities and give it to states
for programs to reduce the
number of uninsured.

Health and Human Services
Secretary Mike Leavitt said
there are better uses for some
of the $30 billion a year the
government spends on bills for
the uninsured.

“When you subsidize insti-
tutions but not people, often-
times the institutions get taken
care of, and the people don’t,”
he said.

Leavitt said he can redirect
some on the money on his
own, but he needs help from
Congress for other transfers.

Bush’s insurance proposal
would have to go through the
Senate Finance Committee.
Chairman Max Baucus, D-
Mont., said his first priority is
extending coverage to unin-
sured children.

“I’m ready to work with
anyone who’s putting forward
real ideas about getting health
care to more Americans,”
Baucus said.

Insurers said the president’s
tax proposal would help many
of the 17 million people who
buy coverage through the indi-
vidual or small-group market.
Their ranks include real estate
agents, consultants and

employees of small businesses.
Also benefiting would be
those in newer industries, like
technology, where the workers
tend to be younger and the
health coverage more basic.

Meanwhile, many state
employees, teachers and older
workers in such established
industries as automobile and
steel manufacturing could see
their expenses go up, said
Karen Ignagni, president of
America’s Health Insurance
Plans, the insurers’ trade
group.

The trade group has not yet
taken a position on the presi-
dent’s proposal. However, the
insurers like the president’s
focus on health care going into
the year. “With the president
coming forward and making
health care such a major issue
on his priority list, I think
progress is definitely possible,”
Ignagni said.

The Congressional Budget
Office reported as far back as
1994 that exempting health
insurance premiums from tax-
ation contributes to the higher
cost of health insurance.

Eleven years later, in 2005, a
panel appointed by Bush rec-
ommended that caps on tax-
free premiums be put into
place — $5,000 for individu-

Qualifications:

Location: Bahamas

¢ Bachelor’s degree in business related field

e 5 - 10 years experience in Financial Institutions

¢ Comprehensive knowledge of Financial Institutions operational processes and
procedures that support Retail Distribution (Retail, Corporate, Capital Markets
& International Wealth Management customer segments) sufficient to develop
and improve complex practices and processes.

° Working (practical) knowledge of several areas of external activities (financial
and/or other industries, market and/or regulatory environment, or client business
practices and needs) sufficient to apply relevant issues or developments to work

performed

General Responsibilities:

° As a part of Senior Management, lead the development of Change Management
Documents — Business User Requirements / Project Charter, Project Plan,
Implementation Plan, Project Budget, Business Cases, Request For Information
(RFI) and Request For Proposal (RFP)

° Responsible in conjunction with the Head of Operations and other Northern
Caribbean Operations Managers in developing the Bahamas Regional Operations
Centres into a fully centralised processing unit for the Northern Caribbean
Region by incorporating additional functions from the Local Processing Unit

hubs.

* To support the overall strategic mandate of the northern Operations group by
identifying and executing process improvements that increase profitability and
enhance our customers’ and employees’ experience.

° To provide advice and /or consultation typically of an operational or tactical
nature to Operations Centres management as it relates to existing business

als and $11,500 for families.
The recommendation went
nowhere.

Grace Marie Turner, presi-
dent of the Galen Institute,
said the president’s latest pro-
posal treats all consumers the
same regardless of how they
get their insurance. Plus, it will
require people to take a look
at what kind of health insur-
ance policy they need.

“We had sort of the castor
oil version of this policy
change in mind: What they’ve
come up with is the honey ver-
sion,” she said.

But Paul Fronstin, a senior
research associate at the
Employee Benefit Research
Institute, said he has serious
concerns about the president’s
proposal.

“J think: we’re giving
employers the incentive to get
out of the business of provid-
ing health benefits,” Fronstin
said.

If that happens, more peo-
ple would have to get their
insurance coverage through
the individual market, he said.
Landing such coverage can be

more difficult for sicker, older

workers, he said.

Diane Rowland, executive
vice president of the Kaiser
Family Foundation, said some
of the people with health
insurance premiums above
$15,000 don’t necessarily have
“gold-plated insurance,” as the
Bush administration has called
it. She said the cost of insur-
ance varies depending upon
the cost of health care in that
state. Other factors include the
size of the company and the
age of its workforce.

“A single cap can mean very
different things in different
places of the country,” she
said.

He added that Harcourt had
“expressed a further interest
and met with the Govern-
ment” to discuss the terms of
any renewed offer to acquire
the Royal Oasis, confirming
Tribune Business’s exclusive
revelation on December 19
that the administration had
reestablished contact with the
Irish company.

Completing the purchaser
field is the group that emerged
from World Investments Hold-
ings, the Florida-based investor
consortium that last August
announced that it had struck

$40 million deal with
Lehman Brothers to acquire
the resort.

However, World Invest-
ments Holdings was unable to
complete the deal, amid con-
cerns about whether it was
able to raise the necessary
financing to both complete the
purchase and renovate the
resort into a sustainable, high-
end property.

The group eventually split
up, with a new one emerging
fiom the original. Mr Christie
yesterday admitted the Gov-
ernment “had expressed
apprehension about the finan-
cial fitness of that company
[World Investments Holdings]
to complete the deal”.

FROM page 12B

ings’ failure to acquire the
Royal Oasis has surprised few
in Grand Bahama. The group
was a relatively late entrant to
the auction for the resort, but
came in at the last minute with
a $40 million offer that
trumped Harcourt’s $25 mil-
lion.

Harcourt had felt the Royal
Oasis was worth no more than
that, given its history as a trou-
bled property and thé likely
renovation costs. However, its
bid - which most thought was

the best, given the company’s
involvement in Grand Bahama
at Suffolk Court and Bahamia
- was overshadowed by World
Investments Holdings.

The latter’s valuation was
closer to what Lehman Broth-
ers was seeking, as the latter’s
sole goal is to maximise the

sales price.

The Government and Grand
Bahama Port Authority had
been seeking to narrow the dis-
tance between Harcourt’s offer
and Lehman Brothers’ valua-
tion, but the latter interpreted
this as a sign of weakness, and
demanded ever-increasing con-
cessions, sources told The Tri-
bune.

Then, World Investments
Holdings entered the race, and

sources said it was pushed to.

the forefront after being intro-
duced to the Hotel Corpora-
tion of the Bahamas by its
Bahamian partner, Lawrence
Chisholm & Associates.

The ongoing saga involving
the Royal Oasis, which closed
in September 2004 after it was
severely damaged by Hurri-
cane Frances, has seriously
affected Grand Bahama's
economy, resulting in the dis-
placement of more than 1,200
workers employed at the
resort.

The effects of the closure

Grand Bahama, particularly in
business closures in the Inter-
national Bazaar.

When the Royal Oasis
closed in September 2004, its
operator, Driftwood
(Freeport), had left liabilities
of at least $22 million. Much
of that money, some $16 mil-
lion, was owed in casino taxes.

However, the resort also
owed the hotel pension funds
$4.1 million as of January 2005.
Other creditors included the
Grand Bahama Port Authori-
ty Group of Companies,
Grand Bahama Power, the
National Insurance Board
(NIB), and private companies
on Grand Bahama.

Maxine Coates-Chapman was a stunning and statuesque redhead from Great Britain.
Born in London, convent educated and operatically trained, MAXINE had long
aspired to attain major stardom in the contemporary music field.

A three year protégée of the famed Professor Georges Cunelli, director of the Milan
(Italy) Opera House, MISS Coates discovered that in addition to her lyric soprano
voice, she had another voice ideally suited to handle the cotemporary “pop” song
stylings she so deeply admired and enjoyed singing.

In 1967 she came to the attention of two of England’s foremost bookers musical

talent, Mr. Bernard Delfont and Frankie Vaughn, both of whom recognized her j

exceptional potential and proceeded to arrange auditions for the top showplaces in
England, with the result that she soon became established as an up-and-coming
singing star in her native land.

Extended bookings followed at the famed London Palladium, the Palace Theater
in Blackpool and the Gaiety Theater in Ayr, Scotland, as well as a 12 month
engagement at “The Carousel” Cabaret Theater in Piccadilly Circus, London, with
Frankie Vaughan, himself, taking over the personal management of the rising fortunes
of the young MISS COATES.

Frequent appearances on England’s leading TV shows further established MAXINE
as one of Great Britain’s most exciting young stars and prompted her decision to
come to the United States in hopes of attaining her goal of international stardom.

MAXINE arrived in thé U.S. in January 1972 and immediately engaged the services
of Chuck Bird, one of the country’s top musical arrangers, to rewrite her act and
supply her with new arrangements and special material.

After two months of intensive rehearsal, MAXINE COATES was now prepared to
take her place among the leading female singers in the industry, a plateau that this
determined and talented “bundle from Britain” cannot fail to reach. Maxine and
Ron arrived in Freeport, Grand Bahama in 1991 as investors.

She passed away peacefully on Monday, January 22, 2007 in Florida.

Left to cherish her precious memories are her husband: Ron Chapman, mother: Ann
Campbell-Coates; Sister: Lingina Coates of England; Long time friends: Nelson

-Chipman and Ann Chipman. In lieu of flowers donations can be sent to The Cancer

Society.

Workers’ Party
petition for release
of baggage handlers

FROM page one

International Airport.
If convicted on charges of

conspiracy to distribute nar-

cotics,within the US, they could
face lengthy jail terms.

The party has also written a
petition appealing to Governor
General Arthur Hanna to cause
all to be done within his consti-
tutional powers to “bring the
boys back home”.

They also asked that Foreign
Affairs Minister Fred Mitchell
be stripped of his portfolio.

In recent reports, Assistant
Police Commissioner Reginald
Ferguson insisted that, although
two other baggage handlers
were attested in the Bahamas as
part of the same investigation,

RF oF PSs ee RE:









fF as aT ELLE eres



there was not enough evidence
to charge the other five men in
Nassau.

However, Mr Moncur
claimed that the men were
“tricked” into going to the US.

“The government of the
Bahamas has conspired with the
US government to entrap these
men. They were told that they
were being trained in the US
for Transportation Administra-
tion Safety (TSA) and then they
were kidnapped,” Mr Moncur
alleged.

He said this procedure was
against the Bahamas Extradi-
tion Act.

_Mr Moncur added that the
Workers Party intends to con-
tinue their petition in, the
hope that the men will be
released.

(;erman chancellor and globalisation |

EDITORIAL/LETTERS TO THE EDITOR:



PEM PO. Box SS-5166

DAVOS, Switzerland (AP) — Ger-
many’s chancellor urged the world to
exploit the positive aspects of globali-
ation on Wednesday and told inter-
national political and business leaders
ihat battling climate change and secur-
ing energy supplies had to be among
ihe planet’s key priorities.

Angela Merkel, now also head of the

ropean Union’s revolving presiden-
cy and of the G-8 group of industrial
nations, spoke out strongly in favour of
continued economic development, but
warned against conducting business as
usual —- to the detriment of the
world’s poor and unstable nations.

“I know that responsibility grows
with economic success,” she told par-
ticipants in this year’s annual World
Economic Forum. /

Her keynote address touched on the
meeting’s main focus — the world’s
economic and political “Shifting Pow-

, Equation” as new nations and

-sions emerge to challenge tradition-
| Western supremacy.

such responsibility carries with it the

-ed “to allow other regions to share

peace and prosperity and to keep
sur planet livable for coming genera-
iiens,” she said.

Besides Merkel, some 24 heads of
siate were due to attend the five-day
~ceting, including British Prime Min-
ister Tony Blair, who was warmly
-reeted in 2005 when he and Treasury
-f.ef Gordon Brown proposed mas-
ive debt relief for third world coun-



ut on its first day Wednesday, this

year’s meeting was beginning to look

ore like forums of old, with a heavy

shasis on the issues that its mem-

bors —- most of them businesses — are
cing.

“Darfur is currently one of our two
;y three major concerns at the
moment,” U.N. refugee chief Antonio
Guterres told The Associated Press at
a media luncheon, alluding to that
Sudanese region’s refugee crisis.

But, he added that the forum was
“more absorbed this year with eco-

nomics than these dramatic events.”

Several participants welcomed Pres-
ident Bush’s call in his State of the
Union address for greater domestic oil
production, a quadrupling of the
nation’s production of alternative fuels
over.the next decade and the recogni-
tion that global climate change is a
serious issue.

Ex-U.S. Senator Timothy E. Wirth, a
Colorado Democrat who was a former
U.S. chief negotiator on the Kyoto
Protocol meant to address climate
change, said the remarks were short
on specifics.

But he added that Bush was “under-

standing finally that this is a serious -

issue that the U.S. has to address.”
Wirth said that the U.S. needed to
provide leadership and acknowledged
it would be hard for Bush to do that.
“We will wait for John McCain or
Hilary Clinton ... or somebody who
will be in a very different position in
2009,” he said, referring to the two
senators who are considered front-run-
ners for the Republican and Democ-
ratic parties in the 2008 election.
Merkel, in her comments, made only
one reference to the Bush speech —
citing his call for a reduction of carbon

emissions — but also named secure
energy supplies as one of the world’s
priorities.

Russian Président Vladimir Putin
was interested in “rules anchored in
writing and following free market
rules,” she said, referring to talks Sun-
day with Putin that focused on Euro-

- pean worries about Moscow’s reliabil-

ity as an energy supplier.

Still, she urged Europe to reduce its
energy dependency by strengthening
energy research.

“Globalization is a world that fright-
ens many people,” she acknowledged.
“I, however, am convinced: ... global-
ization offers the world of today many
more chances than risks.”

Respon




THE TRIBUNE

to

Mitchell press
conference

EDITOR, The Tribune

PLEASE be kind enough
to allow me to respond to
Fred Mitchell’s press confer-
ence of Sunday, January 21,
printed in The Tribune Mon-
day, January 22.

Dear Citizen Fred Mitchell:

1. The FNM rally held in
Fox Hill was not “scurrilous
and scandalous mud-sling-
ing”. It was exemplary,
extremely well attended and
the truth was spoken by all
speakers. Our Leader, the
Right Honourable Hubert A.
Ingraham, will have it no oth-
er way. Note, I said Hubert
A. Ingraham.

2. You advised our fellow
Bahamians, who support the
political party, that you now
associate yourself with “....not
to engage in similar tactics...”
In the same breath you state
“there is only so far the PLP
supporters can be pushed up
against the wall before peo-
ple will tend to strike back...”

Is Citizen Fred baffled? —
What do you want? Bahami-
ans not to speak the tryth, or
fight because the truth is being
told! We will not listen to your
spin. By the way, poor attempt
to twist/spin what you really
wanted to say.

3. You found “it curious
that just one day after Christ-

Asking for fair chance and
Opportunity to own a home

EDITOR, The Tribune.

I AM asingle mother who is trying to be as calm as possible.
I am not asking anyone for any favours, all I am asking for isa
fair chance and opportunity to own a home. I’ve made several
attempts to see Minister Wisdom but you can never see him
because he is never in office. His secretary has said from early
December last year she was waiting for his approval and then Id
be sorted out. How long does it take to append your signature
to a document? It’s frustrating for more than four months now

- not even being told anything only to be told that Iam going to

be sorted out. Not that I have a problem being sorted out, but
by now I should at least have known something. In this situation
I do not know where the east is from the west.

There are more than 20 persons like myself who have paid our
money to Bahamas Mortgage Corporation with the intent that
we were going to get a home. We sat back and waited but now
it is vexing. Some of us have paid funds in the high four figure
range while others paid funds in the high four figure range
while others paid in the five range. Can you imagine the inter-
est we have lost and the interest The Government has gained on
our money all this time? And then Minister Wisdom has the
audacity to duck and dodge. No one is asking him fora favour, .
but that he do his job that he is being paid to do. This is already
January 17, 2007 and he has yet to report to his ministry. Who
is suffering in all this? Of course us, we the taxpayers while he
(the Minister) collects a hefty salary and is chauffeured around
going only God knows where except to his office on Thompson
Boulevard.

I beg that this letter is big up in your paper to get the atten-
tion to the powers that be and so that the Bahamian people
could be informed of persons like myself who are being taken
advantage off by the same people we put in office.

Visitors from
UK give poor
Satisfaction rating

@ By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

THE Bahamas “consistently
ranks near the bottom for visi-
tor satisfaction” out of all coun-
tries that a major UK tour oper-

of Tourism official said yester-

wn day, warning that it showed this

nation needed to match vaca-

tion prices to visitor experience. ©

Ellison “Tommy’ Thompson,
deputy director-general in the
Ministry of ‘Tourism, said that
the low ranking with tour oper-
ator First Choice, especially giv-
en the relatively high costs of a

Bahamian vacation, would -

inevitably soon lead that com-
pany’s head office to question
why it was sending clients to the
Bahamas.

Mr Thompson pointed out
that while First Choice primar-
ily brought UK and European
tourists to the Bahamas, and
that these constituted a rela-
tively small proportion of the
overall market compared to

He

more than 80 per cent of

arrivals coming from the US,
such ratings could ‘snowball’
and have a wider impact.

The Bahamian tourism prod-
uct would eventually be nega-
tively impacted, Mr Thompson
said, if “the Bahamas doesn’t

MR WHITNEY BASTIAN, Independent
MP for South Andros, wanted to know how
many Cabinet ministers had executed con-
tracts for $1 million condos, bought at 80
per cent discount, on the eastern end of Par-
adise Island.

Mr Bastian also asked during the morn-

bought. In the main his questions remained
unanswered.

When asked of his involvement as Minister
of Works and Utilities, Mr Bradley Roberts

Bastian questions —
PM over candidate’s
alleged ‘jobs for votes’

@ By PAUL G TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter

CLAIMING that the PLP candidate in-South
Andros is offering jobs for votes, independent
MP Whitney Bastian questioned the Prime Min-
ister as to the candidate’s authority to do such a
thing, during “Opposition day” in the House of
Assembly.

During yesterday’s proceedings, Independent
and FNM MPs posed a number of questions to
the government.

As one of his many questions, Mr Bastian
asked Prime Minister Perry Christie, who had in

fact given the candidate permission to offer

employment to persons in the constituency.

FORMER Attorney General
Carl Bethel, while attorney gen-
eral, facilitated a favour for
someone that police files show
was involved in fraud, human
trafficking and alien smuggling,
Foreign Affairs Minister Fred
Mitchell told the House of
Assembly yesterday.

The minister made the alle-
gation during a communication
to the House in response to Mr
Bethel’s allegations that a visa
scam has been operating out of
the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The minister invited Mr
Bethel to explain a letter that he
wrote to his then colleague Min-
ister of Foreign Affairs Janet
Bostwick who at his request
personally intervened and
granted visas for six Haitian.
nationals in March 2002.

“Because Prime Minister, I
must say, ‘What is going on?’
Because the people in South
Andros, and persons will not sit
by and see political operatives
send persons to work. We are
prepared to do what is necessary
to put law and order back in this
country.

“Now we are going to take it
into our own hands to take those
persons off the dock. Because we

propose that we are looking for
the best persons who are quali-
fied to run our community. Now
I don’t know what type of com-

“And I’m telling you, if it is

are going to get. Because it seems
as if you don’t understand that
these sizes of money you are
spending are the taxpayer’s mon-

Responding to the remarks,
Mr Christie said that he was
unaware of any kind of power
that any candidate can exercise to
cause someone to go to work.

He elaborated on how he had
received great personal criticism
for facilitating Mr Bastian in
employing persons who were
opponents to the PLP.

To this Mr Bastian responded:

“Jobs in the Bahamas are for

Bahamians. Not persons who
decided which political party they
want to support.

“When I ask for these recom-

munity, I look for the best quali-
fied persons for the job. Not per-
sons who support a particular
political organization,” he
said.

Noting that there was some
misunderstanding about his pre-
vious statement, Mr Christie
explained that his party has facil-
itated great employment in South
Andros, and has done it with the
guidance of Mr Bastian.

For this, through mere political
banter, Mr Christie said, there

has been some objection.

“But I know nothing about
what the MP of South Andros is
saying, and most certainly, from
my point of view, Mr Speaker, I

have never been one to bother |

she can reproduce asexual-

_ ly in a process known as

parthenogenesis.

But while smaller reptiles
were known to do it, Flo-
ra's virgin conception, and
that of another Komodo
dragon at the London Zoo,
were the first to be docu-
mented in the giant Komo-
do dragon.

Now, go-it-alone Flora
has given birth.

"The implications for
conservation breeding pro-
grams are enormous
because this opens up a
new way that animals can

‘potentially colonize an

island," said Kevin Buley,
the zoo's curator of lower
vertebrates and inverte-
brates.

"A female could swim to
a new island, lay a clutch

of eggs, then mate with -

sons and be sexually pro-
ducing normally within a
generation."

The shells began crack-
ing last week, after an
eight-month gestation peri-
od, which culminated with
the arrival on Tuesday of
the fifth black- and yellow-
colored dragon. Two more
eggs remained to be
hatched.

The dragons are between
40 and 45 centimeters (16
inches to nearly 18 inches)
long and weigh between
100 and 125 grams (3.5 and
4.4 ounces), said Buley.

The hatchlings were in
good health and enjoying a
diet of crickets and locusts.

weighing about 300 pounds
(140 kilograms), they'll be
capable of eating a whole
pig or deer at one sitting,
hooves and all.

THE TRIBUNE ,

‘That ravenous appetite
explains why Flora isn't
allowed anywhere near her
offspring:

"No maternal instincts
exist in Komodos so it is
perfectly natural to keep
them as far apart as possi-
ble," Buley said.

"She would try to eat
anything that comes in
front of her."

Komodos are native to
the arid volcanic Lesser
Sunda Islands in Indonesia,,
and are named for the
island where they were dis-
covered in 1910.

The giant lizards are con-
sidered endangered, with
fewer than 4,000 surviving
in the wild and facing
encroachment
from humans.

headquarters on Yellow Pine
Street.

The shipyard employs a labour
force of 600.

Of the 200 Bahamians
employed there, 141 of them are
members of the union.

Mr Grey claims that manage-
ment violated the industrial
agreement when it wrongfully

job site.

The union filed a dispute on
behalf the workers with the

’ Labour Department.

Despite twq meetings to con-
ciliate the matters, Mr Grey said
that management would not com-
ply with the agreement and has
refused to withdraw the suspen-
sions.

The union claims that two
employees were wrongfully sus-
pended, and that one individual
was given a warning letter for
being sick.

Mr David Dalgleish, managing
director at the. shipyard, insisted
that the suspensions were war-
ranted. He said he was not con-
cerned about the union’s threats
of a strike vote.

Mr Grey said he was pleased
with the number of persons that
turned out to vote.

“We have 141 members, and
so far we had a pretty good turn
out of persons coming to cast
their vote. We only need the
majority and once the vote is in

favour of a strike we wiil take
industrial action, if the shipyard
won't settle the matters.

“The shipyard has anywhere

from around 600 to 700 workers, ’

and only 200 Bahamians are
employed there, and that is the
problem,” he said.

Mr Grey claims that because
there are more expatriates
employed at the shipyard, man-
agement feels it can do whatever
it wants to.

“You might say these are not
serious issues to take a strike vote
over, but these are the people’s
rights and the union takes that
very seriously. ,

“The Labour Department
looked at the agreement and said
that the matters were not han-
dled in accordance with the
agreement, but management dis-
agreed,” he claimed.

Mr Grey said that a strike vote
was the last option available to
the union.

The votes were still being
counted up to press time last
night.

PMU voices concern over
Bahamasair’s ‘failure to
pay Christmas bonuses’

@ By BRENT DEAN



PUBLIC Managers Union president Elton Gibson said the union
reserves the right to take further action if there is no progress on its griev-

ances with Bahamasair.

Mr Gibson, speaking yesterday at a lunchtime meeting with members

- in the parking lot of the Bahamasair administrative building, asserted that

the company’s failure to pay Christmas bonuses to the members is one of
the main issues of concern. He acknowledged that Christmas bonuses are
not a part of the current contract between the airline and his members.
. However, he asserted that the bonuses were a historical arrangement
before the agreement, and the union did not think they would be dis-
continued at the signing of the new contract.
“ Ag far the union is concerned, whether we put in there or not, we did-
n't see the real need to put it in if they are giving it to them without it being
included. We never expected that management would just take away

something that is given.”

In response to the union’s statem,
es, Henry Woods, managing ‘direc

tress, with the government having p

ut $25 million into the company last

year, and it is expected that the government would put an additional $18.8

million into the company this year.

Road project
‘on schedule’

m@ By ALEXANDRIO
MORLEY
Tribune Staff Reporter

FOLLOWING calls from
angry motorists about road
works at the corner of Mackey
and Shirley Streets, the Min-
istry of Works assured the
public that the project is pro-
gressing as scheduled. .

Yesterday, a number of dri-
vers called The Tribune to
complain about the road
work. They said that signs had
indicated that it was supposed
to take place during Novem-
ber and December, and ques-
tioned why it was not yet com-
plete.

One of the motorists said:
“An entire lane of Mackey
Street is being dug up at the
moment, and it doesn’t look
like they will be finished any
time soon.”

The Tribune contacted the
Ministry of Works for com-
ment, and was told the work
should be completed by next
month. ,

A statement from Chief
Civil Engineer Howard Bar-
rett read: “The project is pro-
gressing as scheduled. The
first phase was to be complet-
ed on December 15. The pro-
ject was stopped after the first
phase to recommence in Jan-
uary in order to mitigate the
inconvenience to the motor-
ing public over the Yuletide
season.

“The second phase is ongo-
ing and is estimated to be
completed by February 2.”

@ MINISTER of
Education Alfred Sears

Sears alarmed
to hear two
teachers aides
‘not paid
since 2005’

@ By PAUL G
TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter

EDUCATION Minister
Alfred Sears was alarmed to
hear that two teachers aides
in Long Island had not been
paid since 2005 when they
were hired.

FNM MP for Long Island,
Larry Cartwright, raised the
issue during “opposition
day” in the House of Assem-
bly yesterday.

“Mr Speaker, in 2005,
some teacher’s aides were
hired on the island of Long
Island, and I thought the
minister was going to
address this just now, but it
is my understanding that

they have not been paid’

since 2005,” Mr Cartwright
said.

The aides are employed
at the Lower Deadman’s
Cay Primary, and Glinton’s
Primary School.

In response, Mr Sears
said: “Mr Speaker, I must
admit that I am alarmed.
Because this is the first time
I am hearing of the case of
two teachers aides at Lower
Deadman’s Cay Primary,
and Glinton’s Primary.

“And I will undertake to
conduct an.immediate inves-
tigation and to also under-
take that with the hon-
ourable member for Long
Island and share the results,”
he said.

‘Insufficient evidence’ to charge or prosecute
in connection with the alleged ‘visa scam’

Fred Mitchell reads letter from

Commissioner of Police in House

@ By RUPERT MISSICK Jr
Chief Reporter

INSUFFICIENT evidence has
been gathered to charge or pros-
ecute any person within or outside
the consular office at the Ministry
Foreign Affairs as it relates to the
alleged “visa scam” at the min-
istry, Commissioner of Police Paul
Farquharson revealed in a written
communication to Foreign Affairs
Minister Fred Mitchell.

Mr Mitchell read from the let-
ter yesterday during a communi-
cation to the House of Assembly.

The minister also reiterated his
assertion that FNM hopeful for
Holy Cross Carl Bethel, who
made the assertions, should go to
the police if he indeed had any
information as it relates to illegal
operations inside the ministry.

“If there was any impropricty
in the consular affairs division on
the part of anyone there, or if
Carl Bethel is aware of anyone
who has or is trying to fraudu-
lently obtain visas, it is in the
national interest that Senator
Bethel should go to police. I urge
him to go to the police; he is duty
bound to go to the police; and
unless or until he does so, there is
little else to be said on the sub-
ject,” Mr Mitchell said.

The letter from Commission-

er Farquharson said that to date,
insufficient evidence has been
gathered to charge or prosecute
any person within or outside the
consular office.

“Investigations are ongoing
into this matter, and I will keep
you informed of any further
progress,” Mr Farquharson said in
his letter.

During the question and
answer period in the House of
Assembly yesterday, leader of the
opposition Hubert Ingraham
asked Mr Mitchell if any specitic

~ information has been provided to

the police by the minister or offi-
cials in his ministry.

Mr Ingraham asked if Mr
Mitchell had been or expects to
be questioned by police.

However, Mr Mitchell said that
he had made no allegation with
respect to things “going wrong”
within the ministry and the per-
sons who made the allegation
should provide the proof.

“LT have briefed the police on
the allegations that have come to
my attention and those matters
are being investigated by the
police,” the minister said.

Mr Ingraham said that he
would go to sec the commission-
er of police personally about the
matter.

“I found the letter the com-

Roberts: school fumigation ‘not
cause of children failing sick’

FUMIGATION at an Andros school was not the cause of dozens
of children falling sick late last year, Minister of Works and Utilities
Bradley Roberts told the House of Assembly yesterday.

Students of Deep Creek Primary became sick in December of last

year because they contracted the flu —

not because of any contam-

ination due to fumigation, Mr Roberts explained.

MP for South Andros Whitney Bastian had suggested to Mr
Roberts that the use of aerosol pesticides at the school had caused
dozens of children to become sick.

Mr Roberts said that although there was some bacterial contam-
ination in the water which flows from the school’s pump, this was not
the reason for the students’ illness and the consequent closing of the

school.

The minister said that the children all became sick at on or

around December 7.

At the same, he said, the clinic in the area reported an outbreak

~ of the flu...

{57}
in}

Even the clinic’s doctor displayed the same symptoms,as the

children, Mr Roberts said.

As it concerns the water from the pump at Deep Creek Primary,
the minister said, the children are advised not to use it for con-

sumption.

He emphasised that the Ministry of Education provides import-
ed potable water for the children.

Hi MINISTER of Foreign
Affairs Fred Mitchell

missioner gave you a very strange

letter, and as the constitutional
leader of the opposition J will sce
the commissioner with respect to
this supposed investigation and
the letter which he sent to you,”
Mr Ingraham said.

During his communication, Mr
Mitchell asserted that there is and
there can be no evidence that he
is or was involved in any visa
scam”,

“As these matters relating to
allegations of a ‘visa scam’ have
now been fully illuminated by me
within and outside of this House,
there is no further need for com-
ment, other than by the police.
Any and each time this matter is
raised again as a political mischief,
my response will be: has Car]
Bethel been to the police?” Mr
Mitchell said.

The minister said that the
report of an expert from the
Commonwealth Fund for Tech-
nical Co-operation on the con-
sular division of the Ministry of
Foreign Affairs is almost com-
plete.

Mr Mitchell said that the report
is likely to lead to changes in pro-
cedures and personnel at the sec-
tion within a short time.

So far, the minister said, he has
already received an oral summa-
ry of the report and has promised
to act on this.

@ By DENISE
MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport
Reporter

FREEPORT - A West
End man has been
arrested in connection
with the shooting inci-
dent that took place ear-
ly Tuesday morning at
Fishing Hole Road.

Supt Basil Rahming
reported that a 23-year-
old man was taken into

~ year-old construction
worker was shot around

Distributors construction
site.

He told police that a
man whose face he
recognised pulled up in a
gold-coloured car, and
fired two shots at him.

Although Wright was
struck by a bullet in the
left side, he got into his
vehicle and drove to the
Central Police Station.

He was assisted to the
hospital by, police offi-
cers.

Mr Rahming said that
around 4.05pm, officers
attached to the West
End Urban Renewal

WV ITH the election date
expected to be

announced imminently, The Tri-
bune thought it would be a good
idea to take a tour of Bay Street to
find out how the public feels about
the last five years of PLP gover-
nance.

Asking whether people feel better '

off, what successes or failures the
current administration can be cred-
ited with, and how the public feels
about the opposition, its leader, and
its chances, The Tribune found that
no one was without something to
say...

First off was 20 year-old nursing
student, Michelle from Baillou Hills,
who had just got out of work. She
was all smiles, but nonetheless
downbeat about the government's
accomplishments over the last five
years.

“T don't see nothing at all to tell
you the truth — it’s the same thing.
The only thing they’re trying to
implement is the national health
insurance and there’s a lot of shady
areas there that they haven't
addressed.” She said people seem
very confused about the NHI
scheme.

Other than passing the legislation
for NHI, Michelle said she felt the
PLP had “not done anything really”.

"That's the only thing - national
health insurance, right?" she asked
her friend. "Nothing else!"

However, Michelle was more
optimistic about the Opposition
leader, Hubert Ingraham.

“Hubert's cool,” she said. “He's a
straightforward man, he gets to the
point and he deals with his party. I
feel as if they have a fair chance of
winning the election if they bring
across their point to the Bahamian
people.”

Her friend, another nursing stu-
dent from the Carmichael con-
stituency, claimed that after five
years of PLP governance “life is
much more hard”.

"Just look around,” she said. "I'm
not only saying this because I'm an
FNM. Now you have these little
local people as politicians who are
coming in and they don't really
know nothing much, they're just
doing it for power." io

However, she noted that roads in
her area had been repaved during
the government's tenure.

Asked about how she viewed the
opposition as an alternative, she not-
ed that Mr Ingraham has been crit-
icised for his leadership style.

"They say he's a person who
doesn't like to listen to other people,
but I feel as if sometimes you have
to take a stand on whether or not
you're going to listen to people or do
what you think is right. With Perry
Christie, he listens to what people
have to say, which is good, but then
you have to think about what is also
good for the country," she said.

Kevin Macintosh, a 28-year-old
from Freeport, said he felt the PLP
had made improvements on that
island.

“We had our little ups and downs,
going slow and things, but the
biggest problem in Freeport was that
people needed homes and that's
what the government's mostly doing






. So I think they're doing quite a
good job," he said.

Michael, a 52 year-old Farm
Road man said emphatically that he
would not be voting in the upcoming
election.

“All my life I was a PLP, but they
need to clean up the land — you must
always clean up the land. Every-
where you see a lot of filth and dirt,
that's where criminals are. Aban-
doned buildings — clean it up! Get
rid of them! The place is running
down and they don't see it.

They could've done much more,"
he said. "I was a strong PLP but I'm

not going to vote for them because I ,

don't like what they're doing."

Dawn Young, a 48-year-old shop
assistant from the Garden Hills, said
that five years of PLP governance
had left her concerned for the econ-
omy.

"Especially with Bay Street itself,
because there's so many stores clos-
ing down because of all the filth.
Bay Street has just gone down, all of
us... we are getting ready now to
close, and a few other stores I under-
stand are getting ready to close —
the place is so filthy people don't
even want to come this way."

She said that while the govern-
ment has projects underway in the
out islands, she worries about the
environment being destroyed.

Criticising Mr Christie, she said:
"As far as I'm concerned we don't
have a government, we don't have a

prime minister, cos you hardly hear

him, you don't see him, so where is
he?”

"In this government there's a lot
of homes being built, which is very
very good — everywhere is being
built up," said 40-year-old David
Ferguson, a taxi driver from Anne's
town .. . He added however that
"people are saying Christie moves
too slow."

Mr Ferguson also said that he is
concerned that the current govern-
ment has "messed up our sover-
eignty."

"In other words they have laws
that they have broken themselves.
They have extradited some folks
from here, which our laws declare
that if they commit a crime, ‘in Nas-
sau they ought to spend their time
here," he said, claiming that peo-
ple's Tights have been violated under
the current government.

Meanwhile, Tino, 21, a Riu Hotel
employee from Carmichael,
declared that he would not be vot-
ing.

Based on his experience in the
previous five years, he felt that nei-
ther the PLP nor FNM were good
options, as both only “do something
when election coming up”

As for the last five years of PLP
government, he said: "They're
worthless - they ain’t trying to help
the Bahamians. They're trying to
sell Nassau out."

The day's most senior citizen, Mrs
R Darville, a 74-year-old grand-
mother living in St Cecilia, said that
she felt the PLP's efforts have been
"half way."

"My daughter is a doctor, she was
here for one year, and she didn't
get a job — they've got too many Fil-
ipinos — so she's gone back to where
she can get a job in Miami. And
she's a Bahamian!" she said.

Desma Clarke, 33, from Grants
Town said: “All they've given us is
promises. I haven’t even seen my
MP for five years.”

Finally, Gloria, 43, and a former -

security guard from Mt Moriah, was
adamant: "They got to go! They
haven't done anything constructive
round here. Bahamian people can't
even go on the beaches where they
used to go a long time ago," she
said.

A CAR valued at $23,000
has been donated to the
Bahamas Association for the
Physically Disabled.

The car was handed over
at a press conference on
Tuesday at Montagu Gar-
dens by Mrs Helen Astarita.

Mrs Astarita said. she
decided to make the dona-
tion after reading a story
published by The Tribune
regarding the repeated rob-
beries at the centre.

President of the BAPD,
Sir Durward Knowles,
thanked Mrs Astarita and
accepted the vehicle on
behaif of the association.

He noted that the vehicle,
a 2007 Honda Fit, will be
sold with the proceeds being
used for the operation of the
centre

Sir Durward noted that it
is rare for the centre to
receive such a large dona-
tion, although an increased
number of individuals and
groups have begun to step
forward as a result of the
publicity surrounding the
robberies.

Minister of Social Services
Melanie Griffin also extend-
ed her thanks to Mrs Astari-
ta. Minister Griffin asserted
that under Sir Durward’s
stewardship, she is certain
that the proceeds of the car
will be put to good use.

The BAPD had planned to
celebrate its 25th anniversary
in April by building a play-
ground and gardens for the
children. However, the
repeated robberies have
forced the centre to focus tts

ftiieaen COB ‘wants to see’ more |

Bahamians attending
tertiary institutions



tourism:
BLE ES
at critical

OTB lS
history

THE Bahamas is at a criti-
cal point in its history as it
seeks to.propel the tourism
industry forward according to
COB president Janyne Hod-
der.

She noted that more and
more countries are seeking.to
attract the very same people,
while tourists are becoming
more particular about what
they expect.

“There probably is a wide
consensus that we have two
precious assets: the beauty of
these islands and the warmth
and generosity of the people
who live here. Both of these
assets are precious, said Ms
Hodder. “They are also frag-
ile.”

“Clean waters can become
dirty. Marine life can be
destroyed. Beaches can be
eroded. People who are gen-
erous and warm can become
intolerant and angry — espe-
cially they feel that what is
theirs is being mismanaged or
damaged,” she said.

Ms Hodder noted that this
“alarmist” scenario is not
unheard of.

“There are countries that
once were beautiful and are
less so. There are countries
where people who were once
open to tourism and gener-
ous to visitors have become
resentful and where tourists
no longer go.”

She said that for ‘the
Bahamas to move its single
industry forward through a
number of major develop-
ments, it must approach the
matter with “care, creativity
and innovation”.

Ms Hodder said the college
is planning to do its part to
‘meet this challenge.

“We want to build a strong
marine and environmental
sciences programme to pro-
duce the kind of scientists and
the kind of scientific research
which should drive decision-
making with respect to the
sustainability of our marine
and environmental
resources,” she said.

The president noted that
the Bahamas is “particularly
well-placed to do this and this
kind of research is critical to
making well informed choices
about tourism development.”

PRESIDENT ON CUL-
TURAL PROGRAMMES

A number of new cultural
programmes offered by COB
for the benefit of Bahamians
could also be geared towards

| visitors, Janyne Hodder said.

She noted that last fall, the
college launched an Interna-
tional Languages and Culture

‘Institute, which offers instruc-

tion in a number of foreign
| languages and also hosts cul-
tural and public interest
events.

“Last fall also, we launched
the new Anatol Rodgers Lec-
ture series. We operate a
} great bookstore, we hosted
| Jazz Night, a band festival
| and we are about to open a
| new performing arts centre,
| she said. ;

“These activities contribute
to the quality of life of
Bahamians but we also want
to reach out to the visitor
market. We are exploring
how we might do this.”

Ms Hodder said the college
is considering whether part
of the attraction of coming to
the Bahamas might not even-
tually include academic pro-
gramming for visitors “who
| would enjoy getting to know
| this country, its history, its
heritage, its people — through
the lens of a short course or
brief seminar in history, music

or cooking.”
| “Our service contribution
might also include partnering
with others to showcase arti-
facts of history, culture and
the arts in a way that repre-
sents what we most value
| about country and culture,”
she added.

“The creation of the sacred
| space at Clifton, for example,
| might benefit from develop-
| ment which includes historical
| information panels and a
guided tour.

“We can work with others
to offer guests in this coun-
try an opportunity to get to
know the people as well as
the beaches,” Ms Hodder
said.







AROUND 14 per cent of
Bahamians between the ages of
18 and 24 attend a higher educa-
tion institution, COB president
Janyne Hodder revealed yester-
day.

Speaking at the National
Tourism Conference, Ms Hodder
said the college wants to see an
increase in this percentage.

“If Bahamians are to benefit
from the opportunities of our
economy, then this rate must be
much higher,” she said. “The
tourism industry — like so many
others — can create high value
jobs, but to fill these positions,
you need well-educated ¢andi-
dates and you need them in
greater numbers than we are cur-
rently providing.”

Ms Hodder was speaking about
the importance of the tourism
sector and the contribution that
the college — soon to be the Uni-
versity of the Bahamas — can
make to the industry.

“We are not simply in the busi-
ness of building an institution at
the college, we are contributing to
building a nation and that is how
we hope you will experience our
contribution,” she said.

Ms Hodder said universities
contribute to nation-building in
three ways. The first, she said, is
through the transmission of
knowledge through high quality
academic programmes.

“For the last 30 years, the Col-
lege of the Bahamas has been
building high quality pro-
grammes, first at the associate
degree level and increasingly now
at the baccalaureate level. Many
in the tourism industry are our
graduates — including, of course,

later this morning. The Univer-
sity of the Bahamas will continue
to offer undergraduate pro-
grammes and we intend to make
the undergraduate experience of
our students better and better,”
she said.

Ms Hodder noted that this is
why the college has been seeking
international partners to create
international student and faculty
exchange programmes.

“Indeed, we recently signed an
agreement with the University of
Johannesburg to create such
exchanges and we expect our first
field of collaboration will be
tourism and hospitality, given the
high level of activity in this sector
in both our countries,” the presi-
dent said.

She said the second contribu-
tion of a university is in the area
of research.

Ms Hodder pointed to the Ger-
ace Research Centre in San Sal-
vador has been successful for over
30. years in attracting American

and Canadian university students
and researchers.

' “We are focusing our efforts
around defining a limited num-
ber of inter-disciplinary research
themes that would allow us to
build new knowledge for the
good of the country and also for
the world. We see these themes as
very closely linked to national
development issues. Marine and
environmental sciences, maritime
law, tourism and culture, devel-
opment and quality of life, finan-
cial services, challenges of small
island developing states — all of
these must be integrated into the
broad research themes we will
encourage our colleagues to pur-
sue,” she said.

Ms Hodder said the third con-
tribution is in the area of service
to the community.

“We have done this through
our Continuing Education depart-
ment for years now, encouraging
Bahamians who might have
missed out on the chance to pur-
sue higher education to come
back.

“As we move to university sta-
tus, we see an increase in the ser-
vice component. We have creat-
ed a new portfolio which we call
Outreach and our major goal in
this portfolio is to increase our
presence in the nation. We want
no family in the Bahamas to be
left untouched by our work,” she

¢ Benjamins

Roberts challenged on
construction contract

FROM page one

It was a contract he
claimed should have cost the
government $5,000 less than
it did.

FNM Leader Hubert
Ingraham yesterday support-
ed Mr Bastian in his line of
questioning and said that Mr
Roberts should have been
more thorough in his exami-
nation of the contract before
allowing it to be awarded.

Mr Bastian asked Mr
Roberts to state what the rec-
ommended cost for the con-
tract was and how much the
Minister advised his officers
to negotiate for the contract.

The South Andros MP sug-
gested that the original esti-
mate of cost for the work on
the Cargill Creek bridge was
$15,000, but that government
ended up paying more than

itching, sneezing and other
cold & allergy symptoms.

A trusted name for over a century

$20,000.

Mr Roberts responded by
tabling the correspondence
within his ministry regarding
this matter and telling his fel-
low parliamentarians that the
contract was negotiated on
the recommendations of sev-
eral officers — including the
director of works and the per-
manent secretary — within his
ministry.

The minister explained that
the initial estimate for the
repair work on the Cargill
Creek bridge was estimated
at $16,000.

Three construction compa-
nies, he said, were invited to
bid on the contract. However,
only one company respond-
ed and offered to do the work

for $33,650, the minister said. .

Mr Roberts said that fol-
lowing recommendations by
engineers, with the endorse-

ment of the Director of
Works and the advice of the
permanent secretary, a con-
tract was then negotiated
between the ministry and the
construction company for
$20,510.

“That is the factual posi-
tion,” Mr Roberts said.

Mr Ingraham, however,
criticised Minister Roberts
for not questioning his min-
istry officials as to why the
contract was overpriced.

The FNM leader said that
the document tabled by Mr



Roberts clearly shows that a
contract for $20,510 was
awarded, notwithstanding the ’
fact that his own ministry had -
said that the work could be,
done for $15,000.

“It is appropriate to ask the
minister why didn’t he’
inquire of them, why if you .
have an estimate of $15,000
and you are going to negoti-
ate a contract, why are you ,
going to give it for $20,000...
There is no evidence that ther:
minister asked such a ques-
tion,” Mr Ingraham said.

The king is

STRAIGHT UP TALK

HERE is a wonderful

story by Danish writer
Hans Christian Andersen pub-
lished in 1837 that has great rel-
evance to what is happening in
our country today.

Indeed, it was former Prime
Minister Hubert Ingraham who
drew reference to this ina
recent rally speech.

As adapted by Wikipedia,
the story goes as follows:
“Many years ago there lived an
emperor who was quite an
average fairy tale ruler, with
one exception: he cared much
about his clothes.

“One day he heard from two
swindlers named Guido and
Luigi Farabutto that they could
make the finest suit of clothes
from the most beautiful cloth.
This cloth, they said, also had
the special capability that it was
invisible to anyone who was
either stupid or not fit for his
position.

“Being a bit nervous about
whether he himself would be
able to see the cloth, the
emperor first sent two of his
trusted men to see it. Of course,
neither would admit that they
could not see the cloth and so
praised it. All the townspeople
had also heard of the cloth and
were interested to learn how
stupid their neighbours were.

“The emperor then allowed |

himself to be dressed in the
clothes for a procession
through town, never admitting
that he was too unfit and stupid
to see what he was wearing. For
he was afraid that the other
people would think that he was
stupid.

“Of course, all the towns-
people wildly praised the mag-
nificent clothes of the emper-
or, afraid to admit that they
could not see them, until a
small child said:

‘But he has nothing on!’

“This was whispered from
person to person until every-
one in the crowd was shouting
that the emperor had nothing
on. The emperor heard it and
felt that they were correct, but
held his head high and finished
the procession.”

‘PRIME MINISTER
CHRISTIE’S NEW
CLOTHES

It does seem that Prime Min-
ister Perry Christie is parading
up and down The Bahamas
sporting a set of invisible
clothes that Guido and Luigi
fitted for him from some spec-
tacular invisible cloth. His
clothes are made of some 500
approved investments valued
at $18 billion that are driving
an “unprecedented” level of
economic growth in The
Bahamas.

The only problem is that
investment inflow into the
country over the last five years,
according to the Central Bank
of The Bahamas, totalled just
a little over $1 billion and that
the highest economic rate of
growth in the country within
the last 15 years was 6.8 per
cent and took place about eight
years ago when Mr Christie was
jeadex of the opposition and his
former law partner was prime
minister.

The PM’s clothes are made
up of an “unparalleled” num-
ber of 1,500 government homes
constructed that rest in beau-
tifully named sub-divisions like
“Excellence” and “Dignity”
Never mind that too many
occupants of these homes suffer
the mediocrity and indignity of
some of these homes and sub-
divisions being incomplete or
poorly built, the emperor touts
‘them as modern marvels of his
government’s ingenuity.

The PM’s clothes are made
of the fine thread of Urban
Renewal, now being credited
with possibly lowering the Her
Majesty’s Prison population
and recidivism rate despite the
fact that an inordinate number
of persons charged with violent
crimes now roam our streets
out on bail.

This same fine thread can be
credited with transforming our
inner cities, yet the murder rate
in our nation has us coupled
with Jamaica as having among
the highest per capita murder
rates in the world.

The PM’s clothes are made
of the brightest cabinet in the
history of our nation with ethi-
cal standards that are laced
with holiness. Yet, almost every
cabinet minister has been



comeccnmmmemennnns WASHAU. BAHAMAS

CAVES VILLAGE



ZH

involved with some scandal or
another, some so outrageous
that in a more accountable sys-
tem of government such minis-
ters would have long since
resigned or been dismissed.

The PM’s suit is made of the
National Health Insurance
promise that compelled the
government recently to
announce the start of later
times for clinics in South Beach
and other places to be open
despite not having planned
enough to have sufficient doc-
tors and nurses to serve the
large numbers of people who
would take advantage of the
same.

So, when the people came
and could not be served they
became frustrated and irate; so
much so that when the Minister

‘of Health and his team came to

assess the problem, they were
greeted by a level of hostility
that was, to say the least, utter-
ly embarrassing.

Yes, Prime Minister Christie
is wearing a fine birthday. suit
made for him by Guido and
Luigi. Doubtful as he may be
about his own suit, the

swindlers have convinced the-

prime minister to go oui and
sport his suit before the public
hoping that maybe, just maybe,
it is gullible enough to buy in.

Leading the procession
declaring the PM’s suit is ZNS,
the people’s broadcast station,
closely followed by a band of
merry men whose only interest
is to preserve their privileged
perches at the spigot of gov-
ernment favours.

Be sure of this, however, in
every township in The Bahamas
there is that simple little boy
with a child’s logic who will
observe the happenings and
shout with a common honesty,
“But the king is naked!”

.BAHA MAR
SUMS IT UP BEST
Baha Maz’s ad probably sums
up best the new propaganda
being put to The Bahamian

‘public by PM Christie and his

government. In case you missed

“it, check the full spread cover

ad on the back page of a num-
ber of the dailies and you will
find an ad by Baha Mar that
says, “What is most beautiful
is what you can’t see!”

Give yourself some time to
wrap your mind around that
statement and then consider the
fact that Baha Mar is suggesting
that if its development comes
to pass, what you don’t see now
will be more beautiful than
what you will see.

Forget seeing a beautiful red
rose! What is more beautiful is
the rose you can’t see. So, as
the ad goes, Baha Mar will take
four years to complete its
development and two decades
or 20 years after that, it will
add an “estimated” $2.6 billion

That’s right, it’s coming but

Cable bandits ‘hurting

Tribune Staff Reporter

CABLE-BANDITS are cost-
ing BC customers thousands
ot doilars in repairs and delays,
according to a senior officer at
the company.

Dale Knowles, vice-president
for network services, spoke with
fhe Tribune yesterday about
what he described as a “serious
issue” that affects BTC and its
customers.

“We want to inform the pub-
lic that over the last quarter of
the year we've started experi-
eucing a number of disruptions
as a result of sabotage to our
cavies,” he said.

Mr Knowles said thai in

2006, more than 2.000 feet of

cable was stolen from BTC, and
that thieves would remove cable
lines to “re-sell the copper cable
on the hot market.”

He said the affected areas
included Marshall Road, the
South West Ridge, and areas
not frequently travelled.

“It’s not just hurting BaTel-
Co, but it’s really hurting the
customer base,” said Mr
Knowles.

The average cost for provid:

in New Providence is about

vice,

“So vou add that up and
that’s nearly $500,000 right
there in expenses,” Mr Knowles
said.

“At the moment it’s getting -

worse because these persons are
moving away from the basic
cables to the more intricate
cables that could cause a serious
disruption to the entire system.”

He said the public should call
the police or BaTelCo if they
see anyone involved in such

. activity.

Ms Walkine told the National Tourism week

Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative (WHTI),
which requires all US citizens to possess a pass-
port to return home, impacts Bahamian tourism
after coming into effect on Tuesday.

Ms. Walkine. said: “We are monitoring it very

traditional franchise, the ‘quick getaway desti-
nation’.

ed late on Friday to go to the Bahamas for a
weekend, and Ms Walkine said Puerto Rico and
ihe US Virgin Islands -—— both US territories —

as islands that did not require a passport.

Ms Walkine said the Bahamas could “lose some
of that business”, but while the WHTI could
harm the tourism sector, its impact may not be sig-
nificant. “Hopefully, it’ll be much ado about noth-
ing, fingers crossed,” Ms Walkine added.

Meanwhile, the Ministry of Tourism’s direc-
tor of statistics, Gary Young, revealed that some
60 per cent of tourist departure cards were
not being filled out, depriving this nation of
important information on the quality of visitor
experiences.

He acknowledged that the Ministry was “con-

ered” abou! tits, and had pui posters up at the
Lynden Pindiing International Airport to encour-
age that these be completed.

However, Mr Young said the main responsi-
bility for collecting these cards lay with the air-
lines, and there often did not seem to be “a prop-
er process” in place to facilitate this.

Ms Walkine added that the Ministry of Tourism
aimed to create spécific brand identities for every
island, marketing them as destinations with dif-
ferent attractions, as this “gives us our best chance
of achieving the long-term profitability and sus-
tainability we wish for each island.”

Mitchell makes
allegations against |
Carl Bethel |

FROM page one

Nassau Guardian on Monday,
22nd January, that he was sim-
ply doing a favour for a con-
stituent and that he was not
paid for it. I found the use of
the term ‘favour’ interesting.

“When I read the descrip-
tion of the individual to whom
Senator Carl Bethel gave this
‘favour’; it said he was a blind
man who was suffering from

' diabetes. I happened to recall

that a man of that description,
and from his former con-
stituency, visited me along
with his wife late last year to
complain about the fact that
he could not obtain visas for
his vessels,” Mr Mitchell said.

A further examination of
the files, Mr Mitchell said,
reveals that he asked the Per-
manent Secretary to review
this man’s complaint.

“T was advised that the rea-
son that visas had’ not been
granted was that this person
was suspected of being
involved in human smuggling.

“I wish to quote directly
from the written advice given
me on this subject yesterday:

““As previously informed
in December 2006, this per-
son is under the Security
watch of the Royal Bahamas
Police Force, for human
smuggling. Therefore, as a
result of the police informa-
tion and intelligence informa-
tion gathered by the Security
Clearance officer of the Con-
sular Division and conspiracy
implication for consular staff,
he was placed on the Stop List
of the Consular Division.
Once (name omitted) name
appears on the Consular Stop
List he is ineligible to receive
visas on behalf of anyone,”
Mr Mitchell said.’

The minister referred to an
earlier correspondence from
the police to the Permanent
Secretary with regard to the
individual who received visas
at the request of Mr Bethel.

“T quote from the letter’

written by the Assistant Com-
missioner of Police with
regard to the two persons:

the criticism as unwarranted
and misplaced, one source
telling The Tribune that the
number of tours offered by the
Bahamas was second only to
Mexico in the Caribbean
region, and that the cruise lines
were now copying their tour
ideas and itineraries on their
private islands.

There is also understood to
be concern that the Govern-
ment may have negotiated
agreements with the major
cruise lines without getting
input and feedback from the
private sector, and the fact that
it is asking Carnival and Royal
Caribbean to help finance port
redevelopments in Nassau
could be interpreted by the
cruise lines as a sign of weak-

ness on the Bahamas’ part.

Tribune Business has report-
ed for several years now on
questions surrounding the
Bahamas’ strategy to maximise
ihe economic benefits from
cruise tourism, and how it is
to achieve this.

Among the main concerns,
sources have told The Tribune,
is that per capita spending by
cruise ship passengers has fall-
en by around [1-12 per cent in
the 10 years to 2005, while
competing regional destina-
tions have all seen this yield
increase.

Another major issue is the
increasing tendency of cruise
ships to use their private
islands as first or second calls
in the Bahamas, sometimes
bypassing Nassau and Freeport
completely, which reduces the

‘trickle down’ effect of eco-
nomic benefits to Bahamian
businesses and operators.

It is understood that Disney
and Royal Caribbean have
recently applied to the Gov-
ernment to upgrade their pri-
vate islands at Castaway Cay
and Coco Cay respectively.

In addition, the cruise lines
themselves have been vocifer-
ous about the need to upgrade
facilities and attarctions in Nas-
sau, regarding the downtown
aréa as lacking amenities and
being unclean.

One source told The Tri-
bune it was estimated that
some 10-18,000. cruise passen-
gers per week were taken by
ferry to Paradise Island as
opposed to Bay Street, mean-
ing that some $700,000 in con-
sumer spending was not going

into Bahamian-owned busi-
nesses.

A March 2004 report, pre-
pared by the Florida-based
Management Resource Group
(MRG) for the Ministry of
Tourism, revealed that the
share of two to five-night cruis-
es in the Caribbean declined
by 30 per cent in the eight
years to 2003, falling from 76
per cent in 1995 to 46 percent
in 2003.

It attributed this drop large-
ly to the attractiveness and
growth in capacity of Cozumel,
particularly from Gulf Coast
home ports such as Houston.

The report said: “Since the

to the Bahamas has changed
very little, rising from about
840,000 passengers to about

“During the same period,

substantial loss of four night

“In 2003, about 50 per cent

About 46 per cent of the pri-

“Neither Nassau nor Grand

past year, four hotels - Atlantis,

than $5 million on Bahamian

He added that the majority

Instead, he encouraged them
to create new and exciting acts
with true island flavour.

Mr Sands said there needed
to be a definite, marketable
definition of Bahamian sound.
Other acts, such as storytelling,
also needed to be déveloped
so as to provide a variety of
experiences.

Mr Sands said that in the

past, the average guest stay was

serves as the government nego-
tiator for a number of Heads of
Agreements with investors,
said the agreements strove to

create as many chances for

Bahamians to share in the eco-
nomic pie as possible.

He added that the Govern-
ment was currently working
with the cruise lines to provide
the same types of incentives
and opportunities for Bahami-
ans as the hotels.

members, chiefly Paraguay.
who are complaining that the
agreement violates WTO rules
because it grants the Bahamas
and other Caribbean nations
trade preferences and bene-
fits that it does not receive.

This opposition has so far
blocked attempts by the US
to secure a waiver for the
CBI’s continuation from the
WTO until September 2008.
Some $92 million worth of
Bahamian goods were-export-
ed to the US in 2004 under
the CBI’s preferences, and this
amount had increased by 23
per cent during the first nine
months of 2005 to $78.779 mii-
lion.

Although Bahamian
exports under the Act in 2005
had increased from the
$64.034 million worth of goods
and services exported to the
US in the nine months to Sep-
tember 2004, they accounted
for a slightly lower proportion
of total US exports - 13.9 per
cent in 2005 compared to 14.1
per cent in 2004.

The US has indicated that
any replacement for the CBI
will be modelled along the
lines of the free trade agree-
ment it stuck with the Central
American Free Trade Asso-
ciation (CAFTA) and the

‘Dominican Republic.

This will be compliant with
WTO rules, and require the
trade preferences and bene-
fits to flow both ways. This
implies that the Bahamas
would have to allow US
imports into this nation duty-
free, an action that would
have major implications for
the tax system.

The CBI replacement
would also be similar to the
Economic Partnership Agree-
ment (EPA) that Cariforum
is negotiating with the Euro-
pean Union (EU) on the

-“Duty-free
access to the
US is absolutely
essential to out
business. Losing
this benefit
would result in
the likely closure
of the plant,
as production
would be moved
-to the US.’

— Mark VanDevelde

Bahamas’ and Caribbean’s
behalf.

Polymers International
exports to the UK from its
Freeport plani, and is also
concerned about maintaining
duty-free. access to that mar-
ket under the EPA.

Mr VanDevelde said:
“Exports to the UK account
for a substantial and valuable
portion of our existing busi-
ness. The tax breaks under the
current agreement make ship-
ping from the Bahamas a
viable option.

“However, if the situation
were to change and exports
became subject to import
duty, this route would become

uncompetitive and production

would switch to US suppliers.
The negative impact in the
Bahamas would be felt
overnight, resulting in lower
productivity and job losses.”
Mr VanDevelde added that
the EPA could help to open
further EU markets to Poly-
mers, but warned that “this
potential for growth would be
severely limited without the
benefits of duty free access”.
He confirmed, though, that
while a loss of duty-free access
to the UK and EU would not
be fatal for Polymers Interna-

tional’s Freeport operation,
production would decline at
the company, which employs
82 staff.

Mr VanDeveide said: “
Trade with the Uis provides a
significant per centage of busi-
ness, while the value. of poten-
tial growth in the EU would
be difficult to quantify.

“Loss of duty-free access
would significantly reduce
production, but would not
mean a complete shut-down
in operations.”

In terms of the EPA out-
come that Polymers wished to
see, Mr VanDevelde added:
“Following on trom our meet-
ings with the Minister of For-
eign Affairs earlier this month,
we appreciate the Govern-
ment is dealing with a very
complex situation, and have a
variety of issues to consider -
our interests only play a very
small part.

“Looking at the EPA pure-
ly from our point ot view, it
is important for us to retain
the benefits, as they relate to
us and our products, of the
Cotonou agreement.”

The EPA’s impact on Poly-
mers’ Freeport business is not
quite as severe as that indi-
cated in Ministry of Foreign
Affairs briefing document.

That said: “The Most
Favoured Nation Iaritf on
polymers range from 7- 12 per
cent, and the principals of
Freeport polymers have indi-
cated that if they lose their
duty-free entry into the EU

* market, it would not be prof-

itable for them to continue
their operation in Freeport.
“The loss to the Bahamas, if
Polymers were to leave, would
be the loss of 83 Bahamian
jobs in addition to negatively
impacting the activities of 10
Bahamian contractors, who
supply services to Polymers,
as well as the loss of approxi-
mately 10 per cent of Freeport
Power’s revenue, since Poly-

mers uses approximately 10 ~

per cent of the electricity gen-
erated by Freeport Power.”

_ Tony Blair skips debate

Minar

~ denounces calls to withdraw troops —

m@ LONDON



PRIME Minister Tony Blair
skipped the first government-
sponsored debate on the U.S.-
led invasion of Iraq since 2004
on Wednesday, but rejected an
opposition call to withdraw
troops from Iraq by October,
according to Associated Press.

Blair chose not to attend the
parliamentary session dissect-
ing Iraqi policy — sidestepping
the spotlight on the deeply
unpopular war. But before the
debate began, he said the oppo-
sition Liberal Democrats’ call
for a troop withdrawal was irre-
sponsible.

"That would send the most
disastrous signal to the people
that we are fighting in Iraq —

it's a policy that, whatever its |

superficial attractions may be, is
actually deeply irresponsible,"
Blair said during his weekly
appearance in the House of
Commons. He left before the
debate began.

Blair said he would report to
lawmakers on future strategy
following the completion of
Operation Sinbad, a joint
British and Iraqi mission tar-
geting police corruption and
militia influence in the south-
ern Iraqi city of Basra.

He said Iraqi Vice President
Tariq al-Hashemi had cautioned
against setting a timetable for
troop withdrawal during talks
in London on Jan. 15.

As lawmakers debated Iraq
policy, around 50 protesters
lined a frost-covered square
outside Parliament, calling for
the withdrawal of coalition
forces from Iraq.

Foreign Secretary Margaret
Beckett, opening the debate for
the government, said Operation
Sinbad offered the prospect of a

"turning point for Iraq, hope-
fully in the near future."

She said coalition forces
hoped to hand over responsi-
bilities for all 18 Iraqi provinces .
by November and that military
commanders estimated British-
controlled Maysan and Basra
would be transferred to local
security in the spring.

Britain's Defense Ministry
and Blair's Downing Street
office said they could not give
any specific date for the transfer
of the two southern Iraqi
provinces.

Opponents of the war hope
Blair's departure from office,
which he has said will take place
before September, will bring a
change in strategy.

Treasury chief Gordon
Brown, his likely successor, said
he hoped several thousand
British soldiers would be with-
drawn by December. —

Blair's official spokesman
declined to confirm on Wednes-
day whether — after most British
forces withdraw — some troops
would be deployed to secure
supply routes from southern
Iraq to U.S. positions.

The debate is the first to be
held on government time — and





































































































not as part of Westminster ses-
sions allocated for opposition
parties — for three years. It will
not include a vote for a change
in British policy.

Beckett defended Blair's
decision not to attend the
debate and said no other British
prime minister had ever "sub-
jected themselves to the scruti-
ny of parliament" as much as
Blair.

William Hague, foreign
affairs spokesman for the main
opposition Conservatives, said
that by failing to attend, Blair
had shown he preferred the
_"mentality of the bunker to the
open thinking of debate."

Hague criticized Blair and
Beckett for initially supporting
the findings of the Iraq Study
Group panel, headed by former
USS. Secretary of State. James
A. Baker III and former Demo-
cratic Congressman Lee Hamil-
ton, but later backing U.S. Pres-
ident George W. Bush’ s deci-
sion to send additional troops.

Bush's decision contrasted with
the study group's recommen-
dation for a gradual pullout.

"It gives the impression we
would say yes to anything the
White House wants to do,"
Hague said.

Liberal Democrat leader
Menzies Campbell claimed
Bush had only accepted the
‘parts of the study group report
that were in line with current
USS. policy.

He said a series of leaked
documents and testimony since
2003 had proven "the principle
objective of the United States
was regime change," not the
eradication of weapons of mass
destruction.

"It is no longer reasonable or
legitimate to ask our armed
forces to oar the burden any
longer," Campbell said. "It is
time to go.

Opposition Conservative par-
ty leader David Cameron
attended the debate, but did not
speak, his office said.

The bidding:
West North East South
1¢ 14@ Pass 3

Opening lead — two of hearts.

It is said that a little knowledge is
a dangerous thing, and this deal,
where South reached six clubs on the
sequence shown, would certainly
seem to provide support for that
argument. Most players with the
West hand would choose the king of
diamonds as their opening lead. It
simply wouldn’t occur to them to
make any other lead, and in the end,
they would wind up defeating the
slam.

In the actual case, however, West,
a Welaipown playerjled'a heart. He’

realized from the bidding that South
almost certainly had no diamonds,
and thought it might be essential to
establish a heart trick for the defense
before declarer could establish
dummy’s spades and dispose of his
heart losers.

But, alas, West’s opening heart
lead proved fatal. Declarer won with
dummy’s queen, ruffed a diamond,
played the K-Q of trumps and then
led the four of spades.

This presented West with an
insoluble problem. If he went up
with the ace, South would later dis-
card his J-8-5 of hearts on dummy’s
spades. And if West followed low
instead, declarer would win the
spade with dummy’s queen and
return a low spade to the jack and
ace, forcing West to concede the
slam whatever he did next.

If West had led a diamond origi-

nally — the so-called automatic lead '

— declarer would have gone down
regardless of how he proceeded.
There would have been no way for
him to avoid losing a spade and a
heart, assuming best defense. ;

Was West simply unlucky because
he was smart enough to figure out
that South was void of diamonds, or
should he have led a diamond any-
way? It’s hard to say, but of one thing
we're sure: A little knowledge can be
a dangerous thing!

SHANGHAI, China

CHINA has sent men into
orbit and launched dozens of
satellites, but its test of a satel-

- jite-killing weapon is shaking up
perceptions about where the Chi-
nese space program is headed,
according to Associated Press.

The test, confirmed by Beijing
on Tuesday after nearly a two-
week silence, has drawn criticism
from the U.S. and Japan, and
touched off fears of an arms race
in space.

The Chinese test “was an
overtly military, very provocative
event that cannot be spun any
other way,” said Rob Hewson,
the London-based editor of
Jane’s Air-Launched Weapons.
“So a bald assessment of that is
that it’s a big fat challenge.”

The test is a shot across the
bow of U.S. efforts to remain pre-
dominant in space and on the
ground, where its military is heav-
ily dependent on networks of
satellites, particularly the low-
altitude imaging intelligence
models that help it find and hit
targets. Japan, also seen as a
regional rival, is similarly vulner-
able, while any potential conflicts
in space would put much of the
industrialized world’s economies
at risk, given that satellites are
used to relay phone calls and data
and to map weather systems.

The Jan. 11 test, first reported
last week by the magazine Avia-
tion Week, destroyed a defunct
Chinese weather satellite by hit-
ting it with a warhead launched
on board a ballistic missile. That
made China‘only the third coun-
try after Russia and the U.S. to
shoot down anything in space.

Before that, China’s military
and its space program were large-
ly seen as capable, but lagging in
mnovation. Still, its unclear what
message China intended to send,
underscoring the opacity of Chi-
na’s space and military programs

\- and deepening suspicion over its

avowed commitment to the pure-
ly peaceful use of space.

Beijing has repeatedly pledged
peaceful development of its army
— the world’s largest — but has
caused unease among its neigh-
bors by announcing double-digit
military spending increases near-
ly every year since the early
1990s.

The anti-satellite test threat-
ens to “undermine relationships
and fuel military tensions
between space-faring nations,”
David Wright, of the Massachu-
setts-based Union of Concerned
Scientists, said in a statement
posted on the group’s Web site
that was typical of criticisms from
the U.S. scientific community.

On Tuesday, the Foreign Min-
istry said it acknowledged holding
the test to the U.S., Japan and
other countries, but insisted it
opposed any arms race in space.
Both Washington and Tokyo
have criticized the test as under-
mining efforts to keep weapons
out of space.

In Washington, the Defense
Department and President
Bush’s National Security Council
declined to comment Tuesday.

However, while China’s act
looked aggressive, some U.S. offi-

cials were skeptical that Beijing

would do anything to attack the
satellites of the United States or
Japan — key trading partners.
According to the CIA World
Fact Book, China sold more to
the United States in 2005 than
any other nation — 21.4 percent
of its exports. Hong Kong was
second, with 16.3 percent, and
Japan was third with 11 percent.

China has released no details
publicly, although Aviation Week
said the missile lifted off from or
near the Xichang base in south-
west China, the country’s main
commercial satellite launch cen-
ter. The military’s missile corps,
the 2nd Artillery, likely took part
in the launch as well.

Knocking out U.S. military

"OW De 5

satellites would be a priority in
any regional war agains! the U.S.
or Japan, either over Taiwan or
other territorial claims, or to keep
its sea lanes open for deliveries of
oil and gas.

One immediate casualty of the
test could be budding ties
between the Chinese and the
U.S. and European space pro-
grams, experts said. NASA’s
chief administrator Michael Grif-
fin visited China last year to dis-
cuss cooperation projects, and
China has partnered with the
European Space Agency on the
Galileo navigation satellite net-
work to compete with the US,
Global Positioning System.

Now the test “will make it very
difficult for the U.S. to talk about
space cooperation with China any
time soon,” said Jobn Pike, ditec-
tor of GlobalSecurityv.org, a
defense, security and space intel-
ligence consultancy based tn
Alexandria, Va.

Some say China isn’t the only
one rushing to acquire military
capabilities in space.

President Bush signed an order
in October tacitly asserting the
US. right to space weapons and

opposing the development of

treaties or other measures
restricting them — a move some
analysts speculated may have
helped spur the Chinese test.

Bush has also pushed an ambi-
tious program of space-based
missile defense and the Penia-
gon is working on missiles
ground lasers and other technoal-
ogy to shoot down satellites.

However, the Pentagon’s bud-
get is severely constrained by Iraq
and Afghanistan and a drive to
replace outdated planes and
ships, making space prograius a
lower priority and prompting
some. to warn the U.S. could be
losing ground in space.

“We are falling behind, if noi

losing, on many measures of

space superiority,” Detense
Department contractor Stephen

~ arlt

Hill said Monday at a forum in
Washington.

China’s promotion of anti-
satellite weapons is underpinned
by its doctrine of “asymmetric
warfare” that envisions defeat-
ing the U.S. or another power-
ful foe by knocking away key
capabilities rather than through
frontal assault.

- Anti-satellite weapons devel-
opment has likely benefited from
the increasing attention garnered
by China’s space program, which
entered a new era with its first
manned space flight in 2003.

A second mission in 2005 put
(wo astronauts, or “yuhangyuan,’
into orbit for a week and a third
manned launch is planned for

_next year. This year, China plans

to put into space a Junar probe
which will orbit the moon at an
altitude of 125 miles.

Despite the successes, China's
space program had been seen as
lacking in innovation, overly cau-
tious and, perhaps most tmpor-
tantly, non-threatening to Wash-
ington. That evaluation may now
have to change.

“You could argue that China is
getting ready to do a lot of things
that the U.S. is now losing the
ability to do,” Hewson said. “So
that in itself is a challenge to the
US.”

Tour operators South Ocean developer
concerned over

cruise line deals

@ By NEIL HARTNELL |
Tribune Business Editor

BAHAMIAN tour opera-
tors and excursion providers
yesterday met with Ministry of
Tourism officials to express
coricern over whether the Gov-
ernment had agreed incentive
deals with the major cruise
lines without their knowledge,
sources told The Tribune.

Members of the Bahamas:

Association of Shore Excur-
sion Providers (BASE) are
understood to have met} with
Ministry officials during
National Tourism Week to
express disquiet over a Tribune
Business article published on
Friday, January 19, 2007, which
tevealed that the Bahamas had
concluded incentive agree-
ments with Carnival and Roy-
al Caribbean Cruise Lines.

In the article, David John--

son, the Ministry of Tourism’s



deputy director-general for
planning, investment and busi-
ness development, said the
Government and cruise lines
were in the process of “for-
malising” the agreement, and
that similar talks were due to
begin this quarter with the

likes of Disney and Norwegian

Cruise Lines.
-Sources said that both the
tour operators and Nassau
Tourism and Development
Board (NTDB) are unhappy
with comments made by Mr
Johnson in the article, particu-
larly on downtown Bay Street
being a “turn off” for tourists,
and that there was not enough
variety and imagination in the

tour options on offer to cruise

ship passengers.

ticular, are understood to view

Agreement with the Govern-
ment by the end of the 2007
first quarter, the man spear-
heading the development told
The Tribune yesterday, as talks
continue with potential hotel
and casino brands.

Roger Stein, the project’s
managing director, said the
project was progressing “quite
well”. He added: “I’m negoti-
ating with a couple of four-star
brands for the casino and
hotel. I’m also in negotiations
with the marina and restaurant
people, to build the marina as
a joint venture.” ‘

Mr Stein said talks were also
being held with five-star oper-
ators. The Tribune was told

that developers are in negotia-
tions with Hard Rock on a
contract to manage/operate the
four-star hotel and casino com-
ponent of the project, but Mr
Stein declined to comment on
that..

He. said, though, that
designs, documents and pro-
posals were being sent back
and forth between the devel-
opers and potential operating
partner.

“I’m in the midst of going
through the Heads of Agree-
ment process with the Gov-
ernment, and we’re hoping to
be done by the end of the first
quarter,” Mr Stein said.

He added that redevelop-

ment and refurbishment of ©

South Ocean’s golf course was
“partly finished”, and the
course could again be open by
June or July 2007 as a pay-as-
you-play operation, rather than
a membership one.

with Lehman Brothers’ private
equity arm to purchase Grand

dential units, enabling South

in, plua a mega-yacht marina,

facilities. ;
Under the terms of a previ-
ous agreement with the Gov-
ernment, the South Ocean
property has a casino licence,
but this will only kick-in when
the property reaches the size of
500 rooms. It currently has
around 220 rooms, having been
closed since July 2004, and
most of the existing buildings
are likely to be demolished. ~
Mr Stein added that the first
phase could possibly involve
as much as 600 units, some 400
four-star hotel rooms, 100 con-
dos and 130 five-star units.
He said the revitalised South
Ocean, together with the $1.3
billion Albany project next
door, would make southwest-

ern New Providence and the -

whole southern part of the
island “more of a destination

hopes for Q1 agreement

spot”..

With Albany and Lyford
Cay nearby, the resort com-
plex would not only have a
critical mass of high net worth
people to draw from, encour- —
aging them to remain.on the
southern side of the island, but
attract people to visit from
northern New Providence.

Other plans for South Ocean
include a public tennis club,
plus an amphitheatre able to
seat 2,200-2,500 people.

Mr Stein said he was in the
middle of economic and envi-
ronmental impact studies, and
as a result was unable to give
specific numbers on the eco-
nomic and employment impact
the project would have for the
Bahamas.

He added that the develop-
ers had hired ERM from Puer-
to Rico to oversee the envi-
ronmental impact assessment

Imost 90 per cent of

tourist room inven-

tories in the
Bahamas will be owned by vis-
itors once Baha Mar’s $2.4 bil-
lion Cable Beach expansion
becomes operational, with a
Ministry of Tourism director-
general yesterday saying this
presented an opportunity for
this nation to “partner” with
its visitors.

Some 70 per cent of the
Bahamas’ current room inven-
tory is residential, such as con-
dos, second homes, timeshares
and fractional ownership, due
to the industry switching from
the traditional hotel model to
mixed-use resort developments
that generate better financial
returns

David Johnson, the Ministry
of Tourism director-general for
planning, investment and busi-
ness development, told the
National Tourism Week:
“Almost 90 per cent of the
room inventory once Baha
Mar opens will be product that
the visitor owns. This has
tremendous opportunities and
implications for us as a desti-
nation.” .

Mr Johnson said the fact that
second homes and other such
residential options were in high
demand in the Bahamas, indi-
cated that such residents must
like the destination and that
these purchases were good
investments.

If the Bahamas “embraced”
these visitors and secured their
investments, Mr Johnson sug-
gested that they could become
a “non-paid sales arm” for this
nation, selling others on the
benefits of investing and vaca-
tioning in.the Bahamas via

word of mouth, based on their
positive experiences.

He added that second home
owners and other visitors who
invested in residential owner-
ship were usually high net
worth individuals and families,
exactly the target market the
Bahamas was going after.

Mr Johnson explained that
by partnering with such visi-
tors, the Bahamas would have
a “much greater opportunity
to secure the strength and
health of our business with our
customers,’who are our part-
ners,

“We have the opportunity
to use our visitors as the pri-
mary vehicle to promote our
destination going forward,” he
added.

In her presentation to
National Tourism Week, Ver-
nice Walkine, the Ministry of
Tourism’s director-general,
said much of the $13 billion in
investment committed to
resort development in the
Bahamas was for mixed-use
models, featuring condo-
hotels, single and multi-family
residential complexes, and
timeshares and fractional own-
ership.

This was because develop-
ers were using visitors to
finance their resort projects
through pre-sales, as opposed
to the traditional hotel model,
based on attracting a sufficient
number of guests to fill rooms
at rates sufficient to cover costs
and generate a profit.

‘Ms Walkine said Caribbean
destinations had been “hard
pressed” to maintain the finan-
cial viability of such models,
given that it often resulted in
attracting low-end visitors at
high costs, often seeing these
exceed the net returns.

_.. She added that as a result of

Bahamas would have an addi-
tional 5,000 rooms by 2010,
mostly very upscale and tar-
geted at the elite five-star sta-
‘tus.

A tourism lecturer pointed
out that by aiming at the five-
star ratings, the Bahamas
would need three hotel
employees for every one of
these rooms, meaning that this
nation would need 15,000 extra
hotel workers.

Frank Comito, the Bahamas
Hotel Association’s executive
vice-president, admitted that
finding these workers was “a

huge concern”, and that while
the industry was working on
this, it had “ta whole lot more
to do”.

He added that the BHA had
to “ratchet up” its scholarship
programme “in a big way”.

Cingular 4Q profit nearly quadruples

fourth quarter.

BY MICHELLE ROBERTS
Associated Press

SAN ANTONIO — Cingular
Wireless, the nation’s largest cell-
phone provider, said Wednesday its
fourth-quarter profit nearly quadru-
pled, boosted by customer growth

during the holidays.

Cingular said it earned $782 mil-
lion during the fourth quarter, com-
pared with $204 million in the same

‘quarter of 2005. The company

reported revenue of $9.8 billion, up 10
percent from $8.8 billion in the year-
ago period.

The company, which was
rebranded under the AT&T name
last week, was a joint venture of
Atlanta-based BellSouth and AT&T
before AT&T completed its $86 bil-
lion purchase of BellSouth last





month. The wireless company will
report earnings as part of the parent
company in future quarters.

The wireless unit’s growth in the
fourth quarter was driven in part by a
net increase of 2.4 million customers
during the holiday quarter, typically
the heaviest selling season for cell-
phones. Cingular has more than 60
million customers.

They said one more quarter-point nudge from the cur-

That view was bolstered by comments from Bank of

Netflix earnings excee

BY MICHAEL LIEDTKE
Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO — Net-
flix’s fourth-quarter profit sur-
passed analyst expectations as
654,000 more subscribers
signed up for its online DVD
rental service, but the cus-
tomer growth lagged Block-
buster’s — a development that
underscores the stiffening
competition between the
rivals.

Despite the intensifying
battle, Netflix provided a bull-
ish 2007 outlook that helped
boost its recently drooping
stock price by more than 7
percent late Tuesday.

The Los Gatos-based com-
pany predicted it will add as
many as 2.1 million subscribers
this year to keep pace with
Blockbuster, which hopes to
attract another 2 million cus-
tomers to its online DVD
rental service.

“Together, the two compa-
nies are growing the online
DVD rental market faster than
either could on its own,” Net-
flix Chief Executive Reed Has-
tings told analysts during a
Wednesday conference call.

Netflix also reaffirmed its
previously stated goal to
increase its 2007 profit by
about 20 percent to as much as
$60 million.

COMMUNICATIONS

In its most recent quarter,
Netflix said it earned $14.9 mil-
lion, or 2] cents per share, dur-
ing the final three months of
2006. That was down 61 per-
cent from net income of $38.2
million, or 57 cents per share,
in the prior year, but those
results were pumped up by a
$35 million windfall from
taxes.

The 2006 quarter easily
exceeded the average earnings
estimate of 15 cents per share
among analysts surveyed by
Thomson Financial. —

REVENUE UP 44 PERCENT

Revenue for the period
totaled $277.2 million, a 44
percent increase from $193
million in 2005.

Netflix’s shares rose 99
cents Wednesday to close at
$22.75 on the Nasdaq Stock
Market, then surged by
another $1.67, or 7.3 percent, in
extended trading. Netflix’s
stock price had slipped by 18
percent during the past three
weeks amid concerns that the
fourth-quarter results would
be a disappointment.

As it turned out, the perfor-
mance enabled Netflix to hit
all the ambitious targets that
management established at
2006’s outset.

The company attracted an

ers off older technologies.
“We started with a great plan
and we’ve executed flaw-
lessly.”

The company continues to
project low double-digit
growth in revenue in 2007,
driven by increased use of
data services. Data service
sales are offsetting declining
revenue in voice services, he
said.

Sigman also predicted
sales of iPhones, Apple’s new
celiphone-music player,
would drive wireless com-
pany subscriber additions in
the second half of the year.
Cingular has an exclusive
multiyear deal to offer the
much-hyped device, which
will be sold in both Apple and
Cingular retail stores. The
wireless company has not dis-
closed how service activation

* will be done.

“The only word to describe
the iPhone is wow,’ ” Sigman
said. “I have no doubt the
iPhone will be a big seller.”

The rebranding of Cingular

to AT&T will be done aggres-
sively, but Sigman said com-
pany executives will rely on
market research to tell them
when it’s time to remove the
old Cingular signs. He hopes
the transition will be done by
this year’s holiday season.

Chief Financial Officer
Pete Ritcher said Wednesday
that concerns about the risks
of rebranding are fair, but the
company believes marketing
under a united brand will be
more effective in the long
term, aS more services are
bundled.

“You can pretty well call it
anything you want to as long
as you offer good service and
have strong marketing behind
it,” said Ritcher, who noted
that building off a brand like
AT&T is easier than branding
from scratch.

ers during the entire year,
bringing its customer count to
6.3 million through December.
The growth fueled a full-year
profit of $49.1 million, or 71
cents per share, a 17 percent
increase from $42 million, or
64 cents per share, in 2005.
Revenue for 2006 climbed 46
percent to $997 million.
Despite the company’s
steady progress, many inves-
tors remain skeptical about
Netflix’s staying power

because of the twin threats
posed by Blockbuster and an
anticipated expansion of video
available for delivery over the
Internet. me

BLOCKBUSTER CONCERN

Blockbuster looms as the
bigger concern right now.
After starting slowly in online
DVD rentals, the Dallas-based
company appears to be gain-
ing momentum with a recently
introduced twist that allows
subscribers to return movies

PAUL SAKUMA/AP

to the store instead of sending
them back through the mail.

The “Total Access” promo-
tion helped Blockbuster add
700,000 new subscribers dur-
ing the quarter to increase its
online customer base to about
2.2 million.

Although it didn’t grow
quite as fast as its rival during
the fourth quarter, Netflix
added more customers than in
any other three-month period
since it launched its service in
1999.

POSSIBLE ‘HEADWIND”’

The advertising campaign
promoting Blockbuster’s Total
Access program is expected to
create a “headwind” that
might retard Netflix’s cus-
tomer growth during the first
quarter, Hastings acknowl-
edged in Wednesday’s confer-
ence call.

But Hastings believes
Blockbuster will be hurt more
by the cutthroat competition
as the Total Access promotion
siphons away even more reve-
nue from the chain’s strug-
gling stores. Blockbuster
already has closed hundreds of
stores in the last three years as
more households embrace the
DVD-by-mail concept pio-
neered by Netflix. :

united under the AT&T brand
in just two years.

Still, company executives
insist the merger allows syn-
ergies and opportunities for
new sales. Last Friday, AT&T
began allowing customers to
make and receive calls
between landline and wireless
users at no cost.

Company-owned wireless
stores will soon also be recon-
figured to help sell AT&T’s
other services like DSL and
video services, Ritcher said.

Increased foot traffic from
customers seeking AT&T’s
other data services should
help the wireless unit and
offer opportunities for bun-

dled services, Ritcher said.

The wireless business
reported net income for the
year of $2.5 billion, compared
to $333 million in 2005 and
projected strong growth to
continue in 2007.

Excluding expenses such

31 cents a share, beating the
28-cent-average estimate of
22 analysts in a Bloomberg
survey. Revenue was esti-
mated to be $1.67 billion.

During the quarter, EBay
repurchased 31 million shares,

EBay’s new listings grew in
the fourth quarter as consum-
ers and sellers used the site
over the holidays. EBay users
posted 610 million new list-
ings in the fourth quarter.

“There were a couple of
hot consumer electronics
products,” said Chief Finan-

interview. “Across the board,
our marketplaces had an
excellent quarter.”

EBay imposed higher fees
in August in a bid to increase

Sales growth slowed as
customers also look to com-
petitors such as Google Inc. to
complement their EBay auc-
tion listings. This quarter’s
gain is the slowest in at least
seven years since the com-
pany went public in 1998.

To fend off competition
from Checkout, PayPal in
November offered as much
$100 million in holiday

“PayPal really has critical
mass at this point,” said Reed
Bender, who helps manage
$200 million in assets includ-

Pasadena, California. “There’s

Merkel, in her comments,

the Bush speech — citing his
call for a reduction of carbon

secure energy supplies as one

ds analyst estimates

appears to be chipping away at
the amount of revenue that
Netflix collects from its sub-
scribers. In the fourth quarter,
Netflix received an average of
about $15 per month from its
subscribers, down from about
$16 per paying customer at the
end of 2005.

That trend seems likely to’
continue because Netflix just
lowered the fee on its lowest-
priced plan from $5.99 to $4.99
per month.

In an effort to provide its
subscribers with more instant
gratification, Netflix last week
unveiled a new feature that
will stream a limited number
of movies over the Internet.

The “Watch Now” service,
scheduled to be rolled out
gradually through June, has
received mixed reviews so far
because the movies can only
be viewed on personal com-
puters equipped with the Win-
dows operating system and a
high-speed Internet connec-
tion.

A limited selection of about
1,000 movies, compared to the
70,000 titles in Netflix’s selec-

‘tion, also has provoked some

grumbling.

Netflix hopes to add about
4,000 more movies to its
Watch Now service by the end
of this year.

“We believe that 5.5 per-

Insight chief U.K. economist
Howard Archer.

Last month’s unexpected
rate hike had fueled the
pound’s recent rise against
the U.S. dollar to within one
cent of the $2 level on Tues-
day, sending the British cur-
rency to its highest level since
the week before the so-called

tember 1992 when Britain
crashed out of the European

The revelation of the tight

“A test of $2 is off the cards
for the time being,” said
David Brown, European econ-
omist at Bear Stearns.

However, the pound is

‘likely to resume its upward

Analysts also point to

THE TRIBUNE



Concerns raised over

off-propert

@ By CARA BRENNEN-BETHE!.
Tribune Business Reporter

he Ministry of Tourism’s director-gen-
eral yesterday questioned whether the
Bahamas was willing to provide the olff-
property experience, infrastructure and enyi-
ronment to match the demands of its upscale vis-
itors and resorts, adding that it was “simply
unacceptable” for this nation to tolertae dilap-
idated buildings and other debris.

Vernice Walkine encouraged all Bahamians
that the time had come to raise the standars
and quality of the tourism product.

“For every million dollars of investment in
these new models of mixed-use. upscale luxury
properties, how much ought we to invest to also
raise the standards and quality of our sur-
roundings, our environment. in order that they
might be deemed commensurate with the expec-
tations fitting of the new tourism client and
property developer,” said Ms Walkine.

“What do we need to build and enhance the
necessary capabilities - technical and otherwise?
Or are we happy to go about our merry way and
live with dilapidated. unkempt. unpainted sur-
roundings which are totally unappealing to our
own eyes, let alone the visitors.”

To illustrate her point. Ms Walkine showed
slides of the scenery that greeted visitors when
they travelled into Nassau, Exuma and Grand
Bahama all not very attractive images.

These imaged, she pointed out, were what
the likes of Four Seasons Emerald Bay guests
saw when they took a $60 each-way taxi ride
into Georgetown to experience a Bahamian
restaurant. The meal for a family of four would
usually cost betweenb $120-$180, making the
whole excursion a $300 event.

“The mere fact that we rely so heavily on the
strength and viability of our tourism product ts
reason and justification that our commitment.
that our resolve to sustaining our environment,
oughi to be strong and rebulidiig efforts (alter
the hurricane season) deliberate and swift,” she
added. ’

Beach erosion, coroded sireets, buildings that
remained shells of their former selves, heaps

of garbage and debris were “simply unaccept-
able” for the period that they had been Icft to
endure in Grand Bahama following the 2004

and 2005 hurricanes.

Ms Walkine added that }ieeport’s Garden
of the Groves, once a prime tourist attraction,
was now “locked-away and forgotten, and trans-
formed into a common dump site”.

She added that consumers now have a wealth:

., Bahamas was “hard pressed to provide for our- |
- selves”.

of travel options, including non-traditional mar-
kets such as Dubai, Turkey and the Red Sea.

“We simply do not have the luxury of inade-
quate planning, nor of being anything less than
expeditious and deliberate in our actions,” Ms
Walkine said.

She added that the onus to change these
things lay with a commitment by all Bahamians
that tourism was not only everyone’s business,
but their responsibility.

Second home owners had a deep interest in
the Bahamas, Ms Walkine said, requiring enter-
tainment, restaurants, bars, spas and salons, but
sas. warned that they wanted activities that the

SECURITY ASSOCIATION

meets with Minister
Of National Security



















Bottom Left: Mr Arlington Cox, Vice-President of the Professional Security Association of The
Bahamas (PSAB); Mrs Cynthia Pratt, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of National Security; Mr
Byron C. Rodgers, Founder and Presiden tof the PSAB; Mr Peter D. Isaacs, UnderSecretary of The
Ministry of National Security.





Standing Left: Directors of the PSAB, Mr Leo P. Thurston, Mr Denzil Rodgers, Mr Ian M. Jupp and
. Mr Latore T. Mackey.






The Professional Security Association of the Bahamas (PSAB) made a
courtesy visit to The Minister of National Security. During the deliberation,
The Minister was very receptive and supportive todate on what the PSAB
had accomplished. She applauded the efforts of the PSAB and was very
encouraged to witness the fruition of the initial struggle of The Professional
Security Association of the Bahamas which became a legal entity in 2000.








Minister-Pratt and Mr Isaacs, the Undersecretary, both endorsed the fact
that security must play:a vital role in working with the police to help curb or
stem the growth of criminal activities. The Minister further reiterated and
confirmed that “training” was of utmost importance and should be
implemented in all areas of the security profession to demonstrate a level
of professionalism, operating with one voice.








Mr Byron c. Rodgers, the President of the PSAB, followed by other directors
present, assured the Minister of National Security that this body will endeavour
to do its best in the performance of carrying out it’s mandate, and to work
with the Police. Mr Rodgers further ensured the Minister that, with the
“blessings” of her Ministry and the Government of The Bahamas, once the
Professional Security Association of the Bahamas is in receipt of “Statutory
Protection and is allowed to Self-Regulate its own activities, the results
of our “partnership” would realize tremendous benefits for both concerns.

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) —
AirTran Holdings Inc. asked a
court Tuesday to force Mid-
west Air Group Inc. to release
its shareholder list, the discount
carrier’s latest effort in its hos-

tile bid for ‘the regional carrier.

Orlando-based AirTran has
accused Milwaukee-based Mid-
west of trying to block the deal,
first offered in October at $290
million and sweetened last
month to $345 million in a
direct bid to shareholders. Mid-
west has until Thursday to

respond to the most recent
offer and has made no public
comment about it.

AirTran said that Midwest is
refusing to release its share-
holder names in violation of
New York state law. The New

Midwest spokeswoman Car-

AirTran provided the materials
and paid for postage and han-
dling, she said.

“We’re certainly willing and
able to communicate their
information to shareholders,”
Skornicka said. “We’re just not
interested in distributing the
list.”

The most recent deal would
give shareholders $13.25 a
share in cash and stock. The
bid has become increasingly

taking out competing adver-

papers.

Midwest rejected the first

US budget deficit
suffering ‘cancer’

lm By GERRY SMITH
Cox News Service

WASHINGTON — The fed-
eral deficit has been “diagnosed
with cancer” and will ruin the
economy unless dramatic long-
term reforms are created to rein
in spending, Comptroller Gen-
eral David Walker said Tues-
day.

Testifying before the House
Budget Committee, Walker said
an overhaul of entitlement pro-
grams, spending policies and tax
reform would redirect the bud-
get from its “imprudent and
unsustainable path.”

“The problem is not the short
term, it’s the long term,” Walk-
er said. “We do not face an
immediate heart attack, but we
have been diagnosed with can-
cer.”

Walker, who heads the Gov-
ernment Accountability Office,
the investigative arm of Con-
gress, stopped short of outlining
specific proposals.

But he estimated that com-
prehensive reform of Medicare
and Social Security would take
at least 20 years.

“So we need to get started
now,” he said.

Walker said the situation will
become dire over the next four
years as the first “baby
boomers” become eligible for
Social Security and Medicare
benefits, a period he called a
“demographic tsunami.”

The government’s total lia-
bilities and commitments to
social insurance programs has
soared from about $20 trillion in
2000 to about $50 trillion today,
primarily due to the $9 trillion
cost of Medicare alone, Walker
said.

That’s about four times the
nation’s total output, or 95 per-
cent of the estimated net worth
of every American, he noted.

In other words, he said, the
typical American household has

n “implicit debt” of over nine
times their annual income.

“That’s like having a mort-








gage but no house,” Walker
said. .

The U.S. has endured chron-
ic budget deficits since shortly
after the Bush administration
took office, stemming from a
slowdown in the economy, tax
cuts, growing domestic security
costs, the war in Iraq, and bur-
geoning government health care
costs.for senior citizens.

After peaking at a record
$412.7 billion in fiscal 2004,
those deficits dropped to $247.7
billion by fiscal 2006.

But they will grow wider
when annual surpluses in Social
Security begin to decline in 2009
and run out in 2017, Walker
said.

After the hearing, Rep. Lloyd
Doggett, D-Texas, a newly
appointed member of the
House Budget Committee,
attributed the threats to enti-
tlement programs to bad policy
decisions by the Bush adminis-
tration.

“Seniors and the disabled,
who rely on Medicare and
Social Security, should not have
to bear the entire burden of the
political alchemists, who falsely
claimed they could turn tax cuts
for the wealthy into balanced
budgets.” Doggett said in a
statement.

Tony Fratto, a White House
spokesman, said the president
has been encouraging “anyone

who will come to the table” to
help reform the entitlement
programs.

“The reason these programs
are under-funded -has almost
nothing to do with the annual
fiscal situation and has a lot to
do with demographics and the
formulation of these programs,”
Fratto said.

During the hearing, dubbed
“Why Deficits Matter,” Walker
warned that future generations
will suffer if lawmakers fail to
rein in long-term government
spending.

“If you care about the future
of our country, our children and
our grandchildren, the answer is
a clear: ‘Yes, they do matter.”

At any one moment
there are a million ways to have fun.

Christmas for them. I figured
I’d pay the cards off later.”
But Gilbert, who is 62 and
living on Social Security and
disability benefits, found she
couldn’t deal with the more
than $7,000 she accumulated
on her cards — or with the
phone calls from bill collectors.
With the help of Novadebt
counseling, she’s been whit-
tling down the balance since

’ last summer, she said.

“This Christmas, I bought
what I could afford and that
was it,” Gilbert said. “Every-
one understood.”

Sacha Millstone, a senior
vice president at the Millstone
Evans Group in Boulder,
Colo., said that although some
consumers feel the pain of
overwhelming credit card bills
in January and February, it’s
often a symptom of a deeper
problem.

“T believe that many people
who overspend at the holidays
overspend all the time,” she
said.

“They maybe do it a little
bit more at the holidays.”

As a result, Millstone, whose
company is affiliated with Ray-
mond James & Associates Inc.
financial advisers, believes con-
sumers who are in credit card
trouble need to work on a
long-term solution.

“Start by looking back at the
past year to determine what
you actually spent,” she said.
“Next, create a spending plan
for all of 2007.”

The plan will be more real-
istic if the consumer can do

projections based on actual
spending in the previous year,
Millstone pointed out.

Once this has been done, it’s
easier for most people to iden-
tify where they’re overspend-
ing and where they can find
“extra” money to pay down
bills, she said.

“Let’s say you discover
youre spending $8,000 a year
on clothes,” Millstone said.
“You have to ask, "Js that a
priority for us?’ If not, maybe
you're just doing it out of habit
or not thinking about it at all.”

Engineer

Jack Lazar, a 58-year-old civ-
il engineer, and his wife Lisa
started spending heavily on
credit cards in 2003 and 2004
and continued through the
2005 holiday season.

The Lazars, who live in Put-
nam Valley, N.Y., realized
about a year ago that they
were falling behind. With the

- help of credit counselors, they

were able to make a budget,
increase their monthly card
payments — and start saving
more than $100 a month as an
emergency cushion.

Lazar said he switched to
using a debit card instead of a
credit card so that he wasn’t
building more debt, and the
couple became more careful
about spending.

“For the holidays in 2006,
we probably spent 10 percent
of what we spent in 2005,”
Lazar said. :

Instead of gifts, the couple

hopes to throw a party later
this year for family and friends.

Shore, the Novadebt coun-
selor, said many people have to
come to terms with what is
causing their debt problems,
which typically is spending
more than they take in.

“Classically, someone will
say, I lost my job,” she said.
“Then you ask, when was that,
and the answer is ’two months
ago.’ And they’re collecting
unemployment insurance. But
they have $40,000 in credit
card debt. That obviously start-
ed happening more than .two
months ago.”

She believes people trying
to get out of debt need to track
their spending for a while
because “it can be a real eye
opener” as to where the mon-'
ey actually is going.

Next, people need to make a
chart of their debts with the
monthly amounts due, interest
rates and totals.

Shore said consumers have
to begin paying more than the
minimum to get the balances
to start dropping. But, she
added, they also have to be
realistic.

“It’s like when you go on a
diet,” Shore said. “You tell
yourself, ’I’m never going to ~
have a cookie again.’ Then you
have a cookie and fall off the
diet.

“With debt repayment, if
you make too strict — Pll nev-
er go out to eat again — you're
not going to be able to stick to
it. You need to give yourself
some leeway.”

health insurance

@ By KEVIN FREKING

Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON (AP) —

President Bush’s proposed tax
deduction for health insurance
appears to be shaping up as a
tough sell in the Democratic
Congress.

Rep. Pete Stark, D-Calif.,
said Monday that the tax
changes, which Bush will pro-
mote in. Tuesday night’s State
of the Union address, would
encourage employers to stop
providing health insurance.

“Under the guise of tax
breaks, the president is pur-
suing a policy designed to
destroy the employer-based
health care system through
which 160 million people
receive coverage,” the law-
maker said.

Stark, who oversees a key
House Ways and Means sub-
committee, said he would not
consider holding hearings on
the proposal, which includes
a trade-off. Contributions
from employers toward health
insurance would begin to be
treated as taxable income. At
the same time, a standard
deduction for taxpayers with
health insurance would be set
at $15,000 for families and
$7,500 for individuals.

The White House says 80
percent of workers with health
insurance through their jobs
would see a tax cut as a result
of the change. But about 20
percent would see a tax
increase — those workers
whose health insurance cost
more than the standard deduc-
tion.

The change in tax policy is
one of two major health pro-
posals announced by Bush last
weekend. The other would

“Under the guise of tax breaks, the
president is pursuing a policy designed
to destroy the employer-based health
care system through which 160 million
people receive coverage.”

going to hospitals and other
facilities and give it to states
for programs to reduce the
number of uninsured.

Health and Human Services
Secretary Mike Leavitt said
there are better uses for some
of the $30 billion a year the
government spends on bills for
the uninsured.

“When you subsidize insti-
tutions but not people, often-
times the institutions get taken
care of, and the people don’t,”
he said.

Leavitt said he can redirect
some on the money on his
own, but he needs help from
Congress for other transfers.

Bush’s insurance proposal
would have to go through the
Senate Finance Committee.
Chairman Max Baucus, D-
Mont., said his first priority is
extending coverage to unin-
sured children.

“I’m ready to work with
anyone who’s putting forward
real ideas about getting health
care to more Americans,”
Baucus said.

Insurers said the president’s
tax proposal would help many
of the 17 million people who
buy coverage through the indi-
vidual or small-group market.
Their ranks include real estate
agents, consultants and

employees of small businesses.
Also benefiting would be
those in newer industries, like
technology, where the workers
tend to be younger and the
health coverage more basic.

Meanwhile, many state
employees, teachers and older
workers in such established
industries as automobile and
steel manufacturing could see
their expenses go up, said
Karen Ignagni, president of
America’s Health Insurance
Plans, the insurers’ trade
group.

The trade group has not yet
taken a position on the presi-
dent’s proposal. However, the
insurers like the president’s
focus on health care going into
the year. “With the president
coming forward and making
health care such a major issue
on his priority list, I think
progress is definitely possible,”
Ignagni said.

The Congressional Budget
Office reported as far back as
1994 that exempting health
insurance premiums from tax-
ation contributes to the higher
cost of health insurance.

Eleven years later, in 2005, a
panel appointed by Bush rec-
ommended that caps on tax-
free premiums be put into
place — $5,000 for individu-

Qualifications:

Location: Bahamas

¢ Bachelor’s degree in business related field

e 5 - 10 years experience in Financial Institutions

¢ Comprehensive knowledge of Financial Institutions operational processes and
procedures that support Retail Distribution (Retail, Corporate, Capital Markets
& International Wealth Management customer segments) sufficient to develop
and improve complex practices and processes.

° Working (practical) knowledge of several areas of external activities (financial
and/or other industries, market and/or regulatory environment, or client business
practices and needs) sufficient to apply relevant issues or developments to work

performed

General Responsibilities:

° As a part of Senior Management, lead the development of Change Management
Documents — Business User Requirements / Project Charter, Project Plan,
Implementation Plan, Project Budget, Business Cases, Request For Information
(RFI) and Request For Proposal (RFP)

° Responsible in conjunction with the Head of Operations and other Northern
Caribbean Operations Managers in developing the Bahamas Regional Operations
Centres into a fully centralised processing unit for the Northern Caribbean
Region by incorporating additional functions from the Local Processing Unit

hubs.

* To support the overall strategic mandate of the northern Operations group by
identifying and executing process improvements that increase profitability and
enhance our customers’ and employees’ experience.

° To provide advice and /or consultation typically of an operational or tactical
nature to Operations Centres management as it relates to existing business

als and $11,500 for families.
The recommendation went
nowhere.

Grace Marie Turner, presi-
dent of the Galen Institute,
said the president’s latest pro-
posal treats all consumers the
same regardless of how they
get their insurance. Plus, it will
require people to take a look
at what kind of health insur-
ance policy they need.

“We had sort of the castor
oil version of this policy
change in mind: What they’ve
come up with is the honey ver-
sion,” she said.

But Paul Fronstin, a senior
research associate at the
Employee Benefit Research
Institute, said he has serious
concerns about the president’s
proposal.

“J think: we’re giving
employers the incentive to get
out of the business of provid-
ing health benefits,” Fronstin
said.

If that happens, more peo-
ple would have to get their
insurance coverage through
the individual market, he said.
Landing such coverage can be

more difficult for sicker, older

workers, he said.

Diane Rowland, executive
vice president of the Kaiser
Family Foundation, said some
of the people with health
insurance premiums above
$15,000 don’t necessarily have
“gold-plated insurance,” as the
Bush administration has called
it. She said the cost of insur-
ance varies depending upon
the cost of health care in that
state. Other factors include the
size of the company and the
age of its workforce.

“A single cap can mean very
different things in different
places of the country,” she
said.

He added that Harcourt had
“expressed a further interest
and met with the Govern-
ment” to discuss the terms of
any renewed offer to acquire
the Royal Oasis, confirming
Tribune Business’s exclusive
revelation on December 19
that the administration had
reestablished contact with the
Irish company.

Completing the purchaser
field is the group that emerged
from World Investments Hold-
ings, the Florida-based investor
consortium that last August
announced that it had struck

$40 million deal with
Lehman Brothers to acquire
the resort.

However, World Invest-
ments Holdings was unable to
complete the deal, amid con-
cerns about whether it was
able to raise the necessary
financing to both complete the
purchase and renovate the
resort into a sustainable, high-
end property.

The group eventually split
up, with a new one emerging
fiom the original. Mr Christie
yesterday admitted the Gov-
ernment “had expressed
apprehension about the finan-
cial fitness of that company
[World Investments Holdings]
to complete the deal”.

FROM page 12B

ings’ failure to acquire the
Royal Oasis has surprised few
in Grand Bahama. The group
was a relatively late entrant to
the auction for the resort, but
came in at the last minute with
a $40 million offer that
trumped Harcourt’s $25 mil-
lion.

Harcourt had felt the Royal
Oasis was worth no more than
that, given its history as a trou-
bled property and thé likely
renovation costs. However, its
bid - which most thought was

the best, given the company’s
involvement in Grand Bahama
at Suffolk Court and Bahamia
- was overshadowed by World
Investments Holdings.

The latter’s valuation was
closer to what Lehman Broth-
ers was seeking, as the latter’s
sole goal is to maximise the

sales price.

The Government and Grand
Bahama Port Authority had
been seeking to narrow the dis-
tance between Harcourt’s offer
and Lehman Brothers’ valua-
tion, but the latter interpreted
this as a sign of weakness, and
demanded ever-increasing con-
cessions, sources told The Tri-
bune.

Then, World Investments
Holdings entered the race, and

sources said it was pushed to.

the forefront after being intro-
duced to the Hotel Corpora-
tion of the Bahamas by its
Bahamian partner, Lawrence
Chisholm & Associates.

The ongoing saga involving
the Royal Oasis, which closed
in September 2004 after it was
severely damaged by Hurri-
cane Frances, has seriously
affected Grand Bahama's
economy, resulting in the dis-
placement of more than 1,200
workers employed at the
resort.

The effects of the closure

Grand Bahama, particularly in
business closures in the Inter-
national Bazaar.

When the Royal Oasis
closed in September 2004, its
operator, Driftwood
(Freeport), had left liabilities
of at least $22 million. Much
of that money, some $16 mil-
lion, was owed in casino taxes.

However, the resort also
owed the hotel pension funds
$4.1 million as of January 2005.
Other creditors included the
Grand Bahama Port Authori-
ty Group of Companies,
Grand Bahama Power, the
National Insurance Board
(NIB), and private companies
on Grand Bahama.
