Centre for elderly > iii

appeals for help
after roof collapse

@ By ALISON LOWE
Tribune Staff Reporter

REBECCA House — home
of the “Ministry of Love", a
shelter and rehabilitation centre
for the elderly, dispossessed and
vulnerable — needs a new roof.

Seventy-four-year-old Dr
llonka Roker, founder of the
Ministry of Love, a charitable
organisation that helps anyone
and everyone in need — “with-
out red tape"-— returned to
Rebecca House after a. short
but well-deserved Christmas
break to find that heavy rain
had finally caused the old wood-
en roof to give in.

Puddles of water extend
through the hall and cover the
floor of what was the main
sleeping area of the building,
ruining the furniture and leav-
ing the Ministry in dire straits.

asked for any help from the
government because “anytime
you get rejection from people
you don’t go to them.”

She explained how she never
received a pension, and her
experience at the hands of a cer-
tain minister who claimed that
she was not owed a pension
because she owned a property —
Rebecca House — soured her
perception of government.

Since then, she has relied
solely upon community and
individual help.

"The only person I ever went
to with the situation with the
hurricane sometime back was
The Tribune, like I call you in
now, and I ask you to put in the
paper, take pictures, and I get
assistances from the public like
that.”

She has also at times relied
on the pensions or national
insurance payments of those
who are living in her care.

already been “knocking on the
door” since Christmas asking
for help from the Ministry, “but

until I get sorted out,” she
explained.

Since 1981, when the Ministry
of Love first got underway, Dr
Roker believes that “thou-
sands” of people have passed
through Rebecca House. ,

Each stays for a different
amount of time. “Some been
here for years until they get
rehabilitated — it’s a process and
it depends on what their capa- .
bilities are.”

Single parents have also ben-
efited greatly from Dr Roker’s
drive and persistence over the
years. “A lot of single parents
right now come back and tell
me in the foodstore and all
around how helpful the min-
istry was in their time of need.”

She said that she first took
the decision to start the Min-
istry of Love after working for
seven years in the St Francis
Mary’s coffee house.

. “The needs and the progress
caused this place to get start-
ed,” she said. “There were peo-
ple living in cargo terminals and
buses and any old car on the
street - the Holy Spirit put down
in my heart to do it (build
Rebecca House).”

According to Dr Roker, there
is no other place that provides
what'Rebecca House provides.
“There is a need in the commu-
nity,” she said.

Anyone who is interested in
helping Rebecca House should
call Dr Roker at 323-5380.

Public being cheated on many fronts

JUDGING FROM complaints of residents
from several government low cost housing
developments and the auditor general’s

report, no one in government is minding the
people’s business.

Government has bragged so loudly about .

all the. low cost houses constructed for the
poor that it comes as a shock to learn of the
poor workmanship being approved by gov-
ernment inspectors. :

The Tribune has been paying special atten-
tion to the Ministry of Housing because of
these complaints and the allegations by con-
tractors. What our reporters have discovered
so far seems to corroborate complaints made
by several contractors about conditions under
which they have to work, and the reasons
why many of them cut corners on the job to
be able to make their own financial ends
meet.

A resident of Pride Estates said that after
waiting 10 years and saving to be able to
meet a monthly mortgage of $819 over 25
years for a $245,700 home, she expected qual-
ity workmanship. Instead she and her neigh-
bours have taken occupation of homes with
broken tiles and doors not properly installed,
leaving large spaces for rain to enter, and
insects to crawl under. The litany of com-
plaints about poor quality material and work-
manship seems never ending. Similar com-
plaints are also heard from Excellence Estates
and Dignity Gardens.

Housing Minister Neville Wisdom has

- invited all homeowners to bring their com- °

plaints to him for immediate attention.

He said that the contractors hired by his

Ministry are, in most instances, capable, but
“distracted” — distracted by New Provi-
dence’s current building boom.

According to Mr Wisdom many of these
contractors merely “drop some fellas on the
work site” and turn their full attention to
projects “in Lyford Cay or out east.”

This explanation is not acceptable. Does
this mean that government inspectors, paid by
taxpayers to inspect these buildings at every
stage of construction and approve them
before a certificate of occupancy can be grant-
ed, are also distracted?

It is a shame that a government that prides
itself in being for the little man is neglecting
the interests of so many of them.

The Auditor General’s report also pre-
sented a major task for Prison Superintendent
Elliston Rahming. For years there have been
rumours about missing stores at HM Prison.
Now recommendations have been made to
stop the leaks, which in years past have been
reported to be scandalous.

According to the Auditor General, stock-
taking of prison supplies is unreliable. The

PROTE

report recommends not only the computeri-
sation of the storeroom, but the taking of a
monthly inventory. Not only are there to be
physical changes to the storeroom, but the
rotation of staff and the installation of sur-
veillance cameras to monitor all activities in
the room also have been recommended.

A physical count taken at random by the
auditor’s department revealed, for example,
that 92 toothpaste tubes were recorded in
the prison stock book, but 202 tubes were
actually on the shelves. The book showed
123 bed sheets, while the shelves held 160; the
stock book recorded 28 blankets, but the
auditor counted 56. And so on it went.

“The differences were discussed with the
officer-in-charge who seems not to appreciate
the implications of the differences since they

‘revealed no shortages,” the auditor reported.

“It was also revealed that the prison has not
taken a physical count of the inventory in
recent times.” He concluded that the “stock
book is not reliable.”

The picture of inefficiency and indiffer-
ence, painted by the auditor, was a perfect
scene for theft.

It is now up to Dr Rahming to stop the
leaks, save the taxpayer’s money, and intro-
duce accountability and efficiency to the
storeroom.

And then there is the Ministry of Foreign
Affairs. No wonder there is such scandal
attached to the visa section of this Ministry.
According to the auditor this section is open
to abuse — documents were missing, many

_ applications for visas were incomplete and

visas were given to questionable individuals.
If the reports reaching The Tribune are true
__ and we believe they are — visas have been
handed out to many questionable individuals.

Instead of spending so much time abroad,
Foreign Affairs Minister Fred Mitchell should
give more time to his ministry.

The auditor general has pointed the way

for improvement. He has noted the weak- °

nesses and suggested the remedy. Apparent-
ly, the police who were requested to check
allegations against this department could find
nothing amiss, but the auditor general dis-
covered, for example, that a person from
Abaco in a two-month period sponsored 41
women, whose occupations were listed as
“seamen,” and in other cases applications
for visas were made twice in a year for one

person, who listed different sponsors each

time.

Obviously, The Tribune was not lied to in
what has now come to be known as the “visa
scandal.” The auditor’s report shows that
there is much wrong with this department.

The stonewalling must stop — something
must be done. |















EDITORIAL/LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Judges are :
priceless in
our society

EDITOR, The Tribune

“THE controversy surround-
ing Justice John Lyons’ state-
ments, in which he called gov-
ernment's failure to effect a
salary review for members of
the judiciary a “constitutional
crisis”, was covered quite sen-
sationally by the local media.
The situation seemed so dire,
that the public was led to
believe that his remarks would
effect a complete shutdown of
our nation’s court system.

Without equivocation, it
would be wrong of anyone to
trivialise the validity and signif-
icance of the justice’s argument.
Any appearance of political
interference in the execution of
justice in our country imperils
every Bahamian’s constitution-
ally protected democratic free-
doms. Having said that, it is
wrong, I believe, for there to be
the suggestion that the opera-
tion of our courts could be
interrupted until there is reso-
lution of this matter. What qual-
ifies resolution? Although gov-
ernment is mandated to review

’ judicial salaries every three

years, there is no guarantee that
any increases will be agreed
upon.

Whether or not judicial
salaries are increased, a judges
adherence to their sworn judicial
oath, which guides their inter-
pretation and execution of the
law, cannot be expected to
change based on the size of their
salaries. A judge’s ethics should
never have a price attached to

them. If they did, our public,

purse could never afford to pay
those whose ethics could be
bought by persons trying to sub-
vert the rule of law. Men and
women who comprise the judi-
ciary must be those of the high-
est ethics and integrity; moti-
vated principally by a desire to
guard justice jealously, without
prejudice or preference, and the
knowledge that these contribu-
tions that they make to preserve
our democracy.are priceless.

Interestingly, US Supreme

, Court Chief Justice, John G

Roberts Jr, recently echoed Jus-

tice Lyons’ warnings in assess-_

ing the state of the American
judicial system. In using the
same dire language as Justice
Lyons, he stated that failure by
the US government to raise fed-
eral judges’ salaries “has now
reached the level of a constitu-
tional crisis that threatens to
undermine the strength and
independence of the federal
judiciary”.

Chief Justice Roberts noted
that there has been a 23.9 per
cent decline in judicial pay over
the past 25 years, when adjust-
ing for inflation, with the last
substantial pay raise given in
1989. Concerns about poor judi-
cial pay are nothing new in the
US, and were addressed by
Roberts’ predecessor, the late
William H Rehnquist, for some
20 years. Despite these objec-
tions, never was the American
judicial system interrupted due
to protests by members of the
judiciary. .

Financial compensation for
members of the US judiciary
pales in comparison to that of
American lawyers engaged in
private practice, with even first
year lawyers in top US law
firms earning higher salaries.
Justice Roberts blames this fact
for the large number of federal
judges leaving the bench over
the past six years. Poor pay, he
argues, ‘will dilute the pool of
applicants from which new judi-
cial appointees can be taken, by
severely limiting the number of
private lawyers seeking to apply
for judgeships — sentiments sim-
ilar to those expressed by Bar
president Wayne Munroe,
about our local judiciary’s
prospects for attracting Bahami-
an candidates from within the

Park. I must say that recently,
the state of the park is
deplorable. I am not sure how

one goes about in obtaining pet-

mission for use of the park to
sell their wares, but the num-
ber of stalls seem to be increas-
ing by the day. I feel that per-
sons using the park for this pur-

. pose should at least clean up |

after themselves, ie, remove all
garbage left behind by them,
take their tents or barriers with
them when they leave and make

Bahamian
wins Florida
State Council
Spelling Bee

A CONTESTANT from the
Bahamas has won the Florida
State Council Spelling Bee.

Jade-Erin Mitchell beat a stu-
dent from Florida in the final
round to gain the coveted title.

Jade, of Xaviers Lower
School, and fellow Bahamian
Brittany Ferguson of Our
Lady’s School, travelled to
Orlando to compete in the
event as the first and second
place winners of the Catholic

_ Archdiocesan Spelling Bee.

The Bahamas’ delegation was
led by the Knights of Columbus’
district marshal Earl Thompson
Sr, Knights spelling bee co-ordi-
nator Alpheus Ramsey and
Catholic Board of Education
administrator Pat Coakley.

‘The Annual Florida State
Council Spelling Bee, hosted by
the Kissimmee/Orlando District
Council of the Catholic Knights
of Columbus, pits winners from
the various districts throughout
the state of Florida — 64 in all -
that are eligible for the compe-
tition in categories of grades
five to six, seven to eight and
nine to 10.

The Bahamas entered in both

grade five to six and grade sev-

en to eight categories, repre-
sented by Brittany and Jade-
Erin respectively.

“Though small in stature,

Jade exuded confidence in her
. delivery throughout the entire
competition despite her parents’
and the Bahamas contingent
hanging on her every breath
and where her pauses seemed
like minutes,” said a supporter.

Jade was awarded the win-
ners trophy together with a
cheque for her efforts.

One of her aunts, Therese
Mitchell, a school teacher and
Broward County Teacher of the
Year in Coral Springs, Florida,
attended the competition.

She presented Jade with a
crystal plaque engraved
“Spelling Bee Winner”.

BAHAMAS Democratic
Movement leader Cassius Stu-
art called the government “dis-
graceful” for its neglect of dis-
abled citizens.

Mr Stuart said his party
believes a government should
be judged on the manner in
which it treats its youth, its
elderly and also its disabled.

Speaking at a protest in

Rawson Square yesterday on
behalf of the Eyes Wide Open
association, Mr Stuart said:
“This latest action by the rela-
tives and friends of our beloved
disabled citizens is proof posi-
tive that once again the PLP
has turned a blind eye and deaf
ear to a group in society in
need of governmental assis-
tance.”

Eyes Wide Open caters to
the needs of the disabled.
According to the association,
they are protesting the gov-

ernment’s failure to provide —

much needed assistance in this
area and are questioning the
proposed National Health
Insurance plan — which accord-
ing to officials is expected to
pool the resources of Bahami-
ans.

The group said that they are

THE US Embassy yester-
day expressed “strong sup-
port” for the Ministry of
Transport and Aviation’s new
Airport Security Task Force.

The embassy said in a state-
ment that the United States
and the Bahamas have a com-
mon interest in promoting air-
port security, and US officials
are confident that the task
force “will lead to solutions to
existing vulnerabilities”.

The statement continued:

According to Mr Stuart,
Prime Minister Christie has

prison officers, Defence Force
officers, medical officials,
teachers and farmers — and
now the disabled community
has been sadly disappointed by
this government.

“The BDM believes that

They should have the same
opportunities to achieve their
potential and be independent
wherever possible,” he said.

The organisation is request-
ing that special care be guar-
anteed to persons with disabil-
ities and that the financial sup-
port they receive be enhanced.

Mr Stuart noted that for chil-
dren with disabilities, technol-
ogy is an important enabler in
narrowing the social divide
between them and the rest of
the society.

“The BDM will incorporate
into the schools technology to
assist people with disabilities
in their activities once elected
as the government of the
Bahamas,” he said.

According to Mr Stuart, this
technology will include soft-
ware, equipment and devices
with the potential to increase,
maintain or improve the func-
tional capability of individuals
with disabilities — whether at
school or work.

“Individuals with disabilities
should be given assistive
devices to enable them to pur-
sue mainstream education, or
gain employment so as to gain

shortcomings.

“The specific conclusions, as
the ministry rightly noted,
remain confidential to protect
airport vulnerabilities from
being exploited. TSA repre-
sentatives did, however,,con-

which uncovered several hun-
dred security breaches for
which required follow-up
investigation or disciplinary

embassy has shared this infor-
mation with the Ministry of
Transport and Aviation in cor-
respondence prepared earlier
this year.

said.

Referring to a statement
released earlier this week by
the ministry, the statement said
that transport officials were
correct in noting that the
breaches were not identified
by the ICAO, but rather were
reported by the TSA. It reit-
erated the fact that the TSA

The problem is that these scandals
distract us all from hard issues

How can we trans-
form the economy of

The Bahamas to ensure that
more Bahamians own the
invested assets of the country
and control its direction? How
can we create more good paying
jobs for thousands of unem-
ployed persons in our nation
and improve income levels of
existing workers?

How can we ensure that
Bahamians have access to land
in their own country at prices
they can afford? How to we
ensure that our education sys-
tem produces a critical mass of
people capable of leading and
performing well in our nation?

How do we ensure that our
young people develop the kinds
of values and principles that
make for peaceful, wholesome
living? How do we transform
our Family Islands so that they
are havens of economic and
social habitation?

How do we ensure that the
social powder keg that is Nassau
can be transformed into to a
place more conducive to rais-
ing your family? How do we
reduce the number of murders
in this country from the cur-
rently high and unacceptable
level?

How do we fix our healthcare
system to ensure that basic
medicines are available to the
public and sufficient beds are
available to meet the health
needs?

The race to the bottom is a race

THOUGHT FOR THE
WEEK

ur inability to cope
with many of life’s
great challenges has less to do
with the fact that we cannot
than it has to do with the fact
that we will not. It is our minds

that reduce our frustration tol-
erance and our hearts that
makes us quit. Each of us must
develop greater fortitude by
approaching trials with a
stronger sense of defiance. In
the end, we will overcome many
adversities because we discover
inner strength we never knew
we had.

ANDREW Stanford

Presenting
our winners
of a date for



The search is ovet....

After sending out the call for
eligible Bahamian men and
woman to go out on a date with
Ava and Alex, The Tribune, in
partnership with Bahamas @
Sunrise, is happy to report that
our two candidates received a
significant number of entries
from which they were able to
select their date.

Meet the winners of the Win
a Valentine's Date promotion:

Up first is Yolanda T

A bubbly, vibrant young
woman who puts God first,
Yolanda is both a student at a
local college and employed



within the country’s tourism
industry. She describes herself-
as being fun to hang out with
and enjoying intriguing conver-
sation. “When I have spare time
I do enjoy a good book. John
Grisham has written some of
my favourites.”

Yolanda told The Tribune
that she entered the Looking
for a Valentine’s Date promo-
tion so that she could enjoy a
wonderful romantic evening in
the company of a interesting
and intriguing young man.
Yolanda, who has a keen sense
of humour, said that she is look-
ing forward to meeting and hav-
ing fun with Alex on their date
and that she wants to see what _
sparks might fly when two opin-
ionated persons meet.

Next up is Ava’s date -
Andrew Stanford

After reading with interest
the short bio on Ava, Andrew
said that he found it most inter-
esting and a little exciting to
know that there are still some
(possibly one, Ava) available,
single, God fearing and inde-
pendent women in Nassau.

A single parent who enjoys
spending quality time with his
son, Andrew said that what
really attracted him to Ava was
her broad and innocent smile. A
romantic at heart, Andrew loves
to cook, and he describes him-
self as also being independent.
“I have my own home, I love
my job, and I have a small busi-
ness.”

Like Ava, Andrew is also up
for a little adventure, he loves to
travel, especially to the Family
Islands and he loves the out-
doors.

“If I am chosen as Ava’s
Valentine’s date I would make
that night most enjoyable and
full of fun and at the end of the
night I know she would ask me
to go on another date,” he said »
with a laugh. “I also have a
sense of humour, so I was told.”

The couples will enjoy a lim-
ousine ride to and from Club
Land’or for dinner, gift certifi-
cates from John Bull, floral
arrangements from The Nassau
Florist, and gift certificates from
Nature's Spa and Buttons
Bridal & Formal Wear.

e The Tribune wishes to
extend to its two winners our
warmest congratulations, and to
each couple best wishes for a
night of new beginnings - a great
meal, good conversation, lots of
fun and, perchance, a touch of
romance,

share
your
news

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

Prison work stoppage -

light of this I have to admit to
a large degree of consterna-
tion as to what lay beneath the
destructive action of the
(Association),” she said.

Mrs Pratt said that she con-
sequently called in the assis-
tance of members of the Chris-
tian Council to form an inter-
mediary team to engage with
the executive of the Staff
Association.

The mecting between the
two parties, held on February
12, she said, resulted in the
Association agreeing to call off
the work stoppage as a condi-
tion for further discussions.

She explained that the
meeting continued on Febru-
ary 13 and turned to three con-
cerns: The provision of shank-
proof protective vests, resolu-
tion of certain money matters
and the confirmation by gov-
ernment of its intention to
move soon towards raising
salaries of the prison officers

to achieve parity with those of
the police and the Defence
Force.

Mrs Pratt said that she was
surprised to see that among
the issues of concern was that
of salary parity when govern-
ment has already repeatedly
expressed its intention to move
in this direction soon.

“The government, in par-
tial pursuit of this intention,
commissioned a compensation
study that would serve to set
the framework that would
guide the elaboration of equi-
table reward in the entire pub-
lic service,” she said.

The Prison Staff Associa-
tion, she added, participated
in this study.

Mrs Pratt accused the
prison officers of initially hid-
ing their true intent — “that of
disrupting the proper func-
tioning of the prison” — under
the action known as “working
according to the rules.”

very suspicious.”

Beyond this declaration that Jay Damianos’ death was suspi-
cious, the police have only stated that the investigation is ongoing.
The police have been hesitant, for some reason, to go further
and declare the matter a homicide. If the assertions made by Nick
Damianos in his open letter are correct, then a question arises as to
why the police have yet to make the official ruling that the death was

a murder.

The Tribune has learned that the intensity level of the investiga-
tions differs significantly when matters are declared homicides,
rather than being referred to as suspicious deaths.

In homicide cases more senior investigators lead the investigations,
as compared to matters deemed suspicious deaths, The Tribune
was told. Additionally, senior police officers in charge of crime
keep a more engaged watch on the progress of the matter if it is ruled
a homicide, rather than a suspicious death.

Jay Damianos was found dead at an apartment complex on Par-
adise Island on December 17th last year, from what was initially
thought to be a fall from the upper-floor balcony of the residence.

’ Mr Damianos was last seen by friends around 1.30am on the
night of December 17th after a night of dancing at the Atlantis
hotel. He was expected to rejoin friends at the Bamboo night club
downtown after leaving Atlantis, however, Jay never showed up. The
last sighting of him alive was walking to his car which was parked in
a Paradise Island parking lot after leaving the hotel.

Mr Damianos was the son of prominent realtor George. Damianos
and had recently joined the family realty business after graduating

from Rollins College in May 2006.

Senior police officials were unavailable for comment on their
reasoning for not ruling the matter a homicide up to this date.

FROM page one .

Ingraham of blocking the release
of pension funds to former prime
minister the late Sir Lynden Pin-
dling, until it was confirmed that

Sir Lynden would resign his seat

in the House.

However, Minister Roberts
said Mr Ingraham did not apply
this requirement to himself when
he started to collect his pension at
the start of 2002.

According to him, Mr Ingra-
ham currently collects $9,500 per
month plus benefits for his prime
minister’s pension, $4,166.66 per
month as the leader of the oppo-

‘sition and an MP salary of

$2,333.33 per month.

“This is clearly a classic case of
naked greed by a greedy and self- -
ish man,” exclaimed Mr Roberts.

Mr Ingraham has answered the
charges noting that he has
instructed his bank to return his
MP and leader of the opposition
salaries to the treasury, retaining
only his pension as a former
prime minister.

Mr Roberts told the House that
Mr Ingraham receives “mon-
strous” benefits from the public
purse under this pension, and
then listed the entire package:

¢ A lifetime benefit of $1,500
per month or $18,000 per year for
utilities.

¢ A lifetime benefit of a per-
sonal assistant who works out of
his private law firm, earning a
salary of $45,000 per year.

e A lifetime benefit of a maid,
with a salary of $9,900 to $16,000
per year

¢ A lifetime personal vehicle,
with free maintenance and of
equal value to those assigned to
Cabinet ministers; .

e A lifetime police driver

¢ Lifetime police security

e A diplomatic passport, that
provides access to the VIP lounge
at Lynden Pindling International
Airport

Lifetime access to an official
car for appropriate events in the
Bahamas.

If the amendment is made to
the Act, the new law will not only
prohibit former parliamentarians
from receiving a salary and pen-
sion simultaneously, but it also
has a provision which will allow
Mr Ingraham to write the gov-
ernment and cease his pension
within 21 days of the amendment
coming into force until such time
as he is retired. :

But, Minister Roberts said, Mr
Ingraham is intent on keeping his
pension and salary.

He said: “He wants the gussi-
mae pension after serving as
prime minister for nine and one
half years versus Sir Lynden who
served as prime minister for 25
years. In my humble opinion an
honourable person would have
declined receiving a pension until
he vacates his seat.”

Anna Nicole

FROM page one

responsible Supreme Court judge
would seal a file in this particular
instance. I expect that. I am not
surprised by it. I am satisfied if
the only order is that Dannielynn
not leave the Commonwealth of
the Bahamas. That is totally con-
sonant with Anna Nicole’s wishes.
Anna Nicole wished Dannielynn
to remain in the Bahamas with
herself and Howard Stern,” he
said.

At this time, Mr Munroe
asserted that he has no instruc-
tions to contest the order that has
been granted to keep Dannielynn
in the country.

The lawyers for Virgie Arthur

‘were unavailable for comment on

this matter.

The injunction to keep Dan-
nielynn in the country is not the
only controversy surrounding the
child. A paternity suit is still pend-
ing in the U.S. courts filed by Lar-
ry Birkhead, former boyfriend of
Anna Nicole.

Mr Birkhead’s claim of pater-
nity is accompanied by other
claims of paternity by the hus-
band of movie star Zsa Zsa
Gabor, ‘Prince’ Frederick von
Anhalt, along with rumours that a
former bodyguard of Ms Smith
might also be the father. A claim
has even been made that the late
J. Howard Marshall may have
fathered the child through the
artificial insemination of his
frozen sperm.

When asked when the will of
Ms Smith will be addressed Mr
Munroe stated, “I hope that I can
be instructed to admit the will to
probate sooner rather than later
so that persons who think that
there is something to be gained
can find out quickly that there is
nothing to be gained.”

's spy trial



features in new Papa Doc book

A SPY trial in which a
senior Bahamas government
official was sentenced to
death is featured promi-
nently in a new book about
the Haitian dictator, Dr
Francois Duvalier.

The extraordinary case of
David Knox - the Bahamas
government’s information
director in the late 1960s -
dominates the opening
chapters of Papa Doc: Por-
trait of a Haitian Tyrant, due
for publication on April 7.

The book, by The Tri-
bune's managing editor John
Marquis, will appear just
one week before the
centenary of Papa Doc's
birth

And it is expected to cre-
ate tremendous interest
among Haitian exiles in the
United States, Canada and
Europe, as well as the many
people fascinated by Papa
Doc himself.

The book, with its strik-
ing black,-red and gold jack-
et. is already listed on Ama-
zon for pre-order. Mr Mar-
quis is described on the
front cover as “Author of
Amazon.com bestseller
Blood and Fire.”

His acclaimed book about
the Oakes murder case 1D
Nassau in 1943 - launched
in the Bahamas at the end
of 2005 - has sold well all
over the world, and was
named a Caribbean and
Amazon Canada bestseller
last summer.

Julia Tan, executive edi-
tor of LMH Publishing, said:
“Mr Marquis’s work is
among the best I have han-
dled in a lifetime of book
publishing. He undoubted-
ly has the potential to
become a major interna-

tional writer.”

Haitian Tyrant is a 350-
pager which uses the Knox
spy trial as a foundation for

the Duvalier story, covering
the dictator's childhood in
Port-au-Prince, his career as
a country doctor, and his
rise to power in 1957 as
president of Haiti.

The Duvalier family’s
Inagua links are also traced
in the book, which charts an
era of extreme brutality dur-
ing the Duvaliers’ reign in
Haiti between 1957 and
L986.

Mr Marquis said yester-
day: “I have been fascinated
by Papa Doc ever since I
met him at the National
Palace in Port-au-Prince in
1968.

“The Knox trial is, in
itself, a terrific story and all
those who remember the
late 1960s will probably
want to be reminded of the
details. Knox was a charmer
who loved the ladies
and was, in turn, loved by
them.”

David Knox, a South
African born civil servant,
was arrested in Haiti during
the summer of 1968 and
charged with spying against
the Duvalier regime.

RENOWNED supporter of

the arts Winston Saunders
often lent his own creativity to
name many of the works pro-
duced by an emerging local
artist.

Je’Rome Miller felt it appro-
priate, then, to hold his exhibi-
tion of the last six pieces named
by Saunders in his honour.

On Thursday, many of the
country’s art enthusiasts were
treated to an exhibition at the
Dundas entitled “Exuberance,
Pages From My Colouring
Book.”

Many participated in the auc-
tion of one of Miller’s original
pieces to support the Winston

V Saunders Scholarship Fund.
Miller’s benefactor Eleanor
Phillips called on Food Art by
Cacique to ensure all aspects
of the exhibit reflected the
artistic vision of the artist and
the man he was honouring.
- Food Art by Cacique donat-
ed the food and décor for the
event.

“We are driven by our efforts
to make food and eating an
artistic experience. It is impor-
tant to our continued success
that more and more Bahami-
ans develop an appreciation for
art, and so it is a natural fit for
us to support a Bahamian artist
with such talent in his efforts

to develop a local and an inter-
national following,” said Shawn
M Sawyer, president and CEO
of the Cacique Group of Com-
panies.

“Exuberance, Pages From
My Coloring Book,” is Miller’s
second full exhibition of origi-
nal artwork. He has developed
his own style of abstract expres-
sionism and draws on the nat-

ural beauty and cultural expe- _

riences of the Bahamas for
inspiration.
The paintings from the exhi-

bition will hang at the Azure :

Spa at the British Colonial
Hilton February 10 through
February 28.

THE TRIBUNE

The US Embassy hosted a 15-
member delegation from the
state of Rhode Island under the
auspices of the Rhode Island
National Guard-Bahamas State
Partnership Programme.

The delegation, which visit-
ed Nassau February 5 to 8, was
lead by Adjutant General
Robert Bray and included oth-
er officials from the Rhode
Island (RI) National Guard, the
University of Rhode Island, and
the Rhode Island business com-
munity.

The highlight of the visit was
the signing of a partnership
agreement between the Uni-
versity of Rhode Island (URI)
and the College of the
Bahamas.

The president of the Univer-
sity of Rhode Island, Dr Robert
Carothers, signed a Memoran-
dum of Understanding with
Janyne Hodder, president of the
College of the Bahamas at a
ceremony at the president's
home to promote exchange pro-
grammes between the two insti-
tutionssst

Two College of Bahamas
students are currently studying
at URI through this partnership
initiative.

The agreement also makes
possible faculty exchanges, joint
research and paves the way for
Bahamian students to study at
the University of Rhode Island
for in-state tuition rates.

The Rhode Island National
Guard military contingent held
meetings with Deputy Prime
Minister Cynthia Pratt and
Defence Force Commander
Commodore Scavella

At those meetings, both sides

-agreed to send medical techni-

cians from the Rhode Island
National Guard to the Bahamas

Anglican conference
begins in Tanzania

@ TANZANIA
Dar es Salaam

LEADERS of the world’s 77
million Anglicans opened a cru-
cial meeting Wednesday as the
church struggles to reconcile
scripture and homosexuality,
with the American wing com-
ing under increasing pressure
to reconsider its liberal stance
on gays, according to Associated
Press.

Splits between Anglican lib-
erals and conservatives have
been growing for years, but
reached a crisis in 2003 when
the Episcopal Church — the US
wing of the global Anglican
Communion - consecrated its
first openly gay bishop, Gene
Robinson of New Hampshire.

The problems mounted last
year with the election of
Katharine Jefferts Schori, who
supports ordaining gays and is
the first female leader of the
US church.

Conservative Anglicans have
formed a rival network in the
US, under the leadership of
Anglican Archbishop Peter
Akinola of Nigeria, who has
called the acceptance of gay
relationships a “satanic attack”
on the church.

Canon Jim Rosenthal, a
spokesman for the Anglican
Communion, said Wednesday
the conference was sure to be
highly charged over the rift.
“The basic issue here is what to
do about those who decided
they don’t want to stay in the
main Anglican body,” he said.

Akinola gave a letter this week
to the spiritual leader of the com-
munion, Archbishop of Canter-
bury Rowan Williams, which is
believed to demand some con-
cessions to head off a schism.
Africa is home to half the world’s
Anglicans and is dominated by
conservative leaders.

Rosenthal confirmed the let-
ter but said it was private.

Williams has struggled to
hold off one of the biggest melt-
downs in Christianity in cen-
turies, but he lacks any direct
authority to force a compro-

_mise. The Anglican Commu-

nion is the third-largest network
of Christian churches.

Bishop Martyn Minns of Vir-
ginia — one of the most promi-
nent US bishops to leave the
American church for Akinola’s
group — said Wednesday that it
would be best for the US church
to “back off and reconsider” its
stance on gays. But, he said, that
was highly unlikely.

However Jefferts Schori was
not prepared to back down, said
Canon Robert Williams, an aide
to Jefferts Schori. “...she under-
stands the responsibility and the
significance of her work here,”
he said.

The creation of Akinola’s
group, called the Convocation
of Anglicans in North Ameri-
ca, has been the most dramatic
step by conservatives to encour-
age a breakaway Episcopal
group that would be outside Jef-
ferts Schori’s oversight.

An eventual breakup would
be the most stunning fallout
from struggles over gay rela-

tionships that also have gripped
Roman Catholics, Lutherans
and other denominations. The
Anglican church was founded
in the 16th century by King
Henry VIII and spread world-
wide by the British Empire.

Several delegates at the six-
day conference, which brings
together the archbishops who
head the 38 provinces in the
worldwide Anglican Commu-
nion, have threatened to refuse
to sit with Jefferts Schori over
the issue of gays.

But Rosenthal said Wednes-
day she is welcome and was
invited by the archbishop.

“Her presence here is
absolute. She is here as the pri-
mate of the Episcopal Church.
She is here by invitation,”
Rosenthal said.

The Anglican conference is
closed to the media, but Rosen-
thal said much of Wednesday
was spent as an orientation for
the 11 new bishops who have
been named since 2005.”

Explosion kills 11 members of
Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guards

@ TEHRAN, Iran



A CAR loaded with explosives blew up Wednesday near a bus car- .

rying members of Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guards in southeastern
Iran, killing 11 of them and wounding 31. An al-Qaida-linked Sunni mil-
itant group reportedly claimed responsibility, according to Associat-

ed Press.

The semiofficial news agency Fars reported that the militant group
Jundallah, or God’s Brigade, issued a statement saying it carried out the
blast. But officials did not confirm the claim, blaming “insurgents and

drug-traffickers.”

The bombing was the worst attack in years in the lawless corner of
Iran near the Pakistan border, where drug gangs and militants have car-

ried out past attacks.

- Jundallah, or God’s Brigade, has been blamed for previous attacks
on Iranian troops in the area. The group, which accuses Shiite-led
Iran of discriminating against Sunni Muslim minorities in the south-
eastern region, also operates in Pakistan, where authorities have

accused it of links to al-Qaida.

The bombing came amid heigh

Freeport’s ‘missing entity’

@ By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

he Freeport
Licensees and Prop-
erty Owners Asso-
ciation and its mem-
bers have become
concerned about what they see
as a delay in obtaining the licence
authorising its incorporation,
despite all relevant documents
and payments having been sub-
mitted to the Government.
These were sent to the Regis-
trar General’s Department last
November, in a bid to incorpo-
rate the Association as a private,
non-profit company that would
seek to establish itself as the pre-
viously “missing entity” to the
Hawksbill Creek Agreement.
At that point, some 200 Grand
Bahama Port Authority (GBPA)
licencees had shown interest in
joining the Freeport Licensees

and Property Owners Associa- |

rights amid the ongoing share-
holder dispute, involving the Hay-
ward and St George families,

to the Companies Registry, in
November 30, 2006.

The Association only received
a reply more than a month later,
on February 1, 2007, from deputy

Butterfield’s 29% income

@ By NEIL HARTNELL
_ Tribune Business Editor

BUTTERFIELD Bank’s
Bahamas-based operations
generated a 29 per cent
increase in net income for fis-
cal 2006, increasing this from
$1.7 million to $2.2 million,
largely on the back of a 33.7
per cent revenue rise.

Revealing its unaudited
results for the fiscal year ended
on December 31, 2006, But-
terfield Bank said its Bahami-
an operations produced total
revenues of $9.1 million.

Their Bermuda parent said

As at December 31, 2006,
Butterfield bank said the total
assets of its Bahamian opera-
tions were $155 million, com-
pared to $97 million the year

Attorney Maurice Glinton,
representing the Association and
one of its initial subscribers,
replied to Ms Butler on Febru-
ary 5, saying the position of the
Association and its incorporators
was that the request for addition-
al material was “unwarranted and
unreasonable”.

He pointed out that the Mem-
orandum and Articles of Associ-
ation had already been stamped
at.the Public Treasury, while the
$834 registration fee cheque had
already been deposited by the
Registrar General’s Department
on December 8, 2006.

Mr Glinton warned that the
Association’s subscribers might
take legal action, saying: “If the
incorporators have not been per-
suasive that the request for the

additional matters is unnecessary
in this instance, and the Regis-
trar General’s Department insists
on having them nonetheless, they
accept that the only proper course
to take so as to avoid an impasse
being reached, thus holding up
the said application, may. be to
have the question resolved by the
Supreme Court.”

Apart from Mr Glinton, the
other initial subscribers include
attorney Rawle Maynard, head
of the Association’s Board, Allan

SOLOMON'’S Mines, the luxury goods
retailer owned by newly-knighted entre-
preneur Sir Garet ‘Tiger’ Finlayson, is
in talks with several potential suitors
about a strategic alliance or sale of all
or part of the company, sources told The
Tribune yesterday. » ‘

No deal hasbeen concluded, and it is
unclear whether one will be sealed. The
Tribune understands, though, that one
of the companies talking to Solomon’s
Mines is fellow jewellery and luxury
goods retailer, Diamonds International,
but other parties are also circling the
well-known retailer.

This newspaper reported over the 2006

The CBI trade benefits all flow
one way - to the Bahamas and
the Caribbean, with these nation-
al not reciprocating in terms of
duty free access for US-made
goods.

However, like the Cotonou
agreement which the EPA is
intended to replace, the CBI is
also coming under pressure in the
World Trade Organisation
(WTO), due to the lack of reci-
procity and the fact that the ben-

criminatory.

The US is attempting to secure
a further waiver for the CBI at
the WTO until 2008, but this is
being opposed by Paraguay and
others.

Mr Lowe said yesterday: “Yet
again we are operating from a
cornered position. We should
have had a 20-year plan in the

short-term.”

The Ministry of Foreign

_ Affairs, in a statement released

‘yesterday, said the Ministry and
the Government had consulted
widely on the EPA, both with the
Chamber of Commerce in Nas-
sau and the Grand Bahama
Chamber, plus those exporters
most affected - Bacardi, Paradise
Fisheries and other seafood firms,
and Polymers International.

However, The Tribune was told
that consultation was largely lim-
ited to one meeting at the Min-

istry of Foreign Affairs on Janu-'

ary 8, just about a week before
the Bahamas was supposed to
submit its ‘wants and needs’ on

the EPA to CARIFORUM by «

the January 15 deadline. .

Mr Lowe said: “One meeting
does not consultation make. Our
consultation was very late in the
game, as the Government was
finding itself with its back against
the wall, and now needs the pri-
vate sector.”

‘A briefing afenaten for the
Cabinet’s sub-committee on trade
by the Ministry of Foreign
Affairs, which has responsibility
for international trade, warned
that the Bahamas would lose “its
favourable, $20 million trade bal-
ance” with the EU if it failed to
sign the EPA, while hundreds of
jobs would be jeopardised if Bac-
ardi and Polymers International
shut their respective operations
due to their exports becoming
uncompetitive.

The Government document:

detailed that the Bahamas export-

' ed some $66.315 million worth of

goods to the EU in 2004, largely
made. up of Bacardi’s rum and
spirits products, lobster and other
sea food products, and polymers
from Polymers International in
Freeport.

These goods entered the EU
duty-free; but if. the Bahamas

remains. outside the EPA, they .

will attract from, 2008 onwards
what is called the ‘Most Favoured

Nation’ (MEN) rate of duty. This |
means that EU members have to: ‘

apply the same rate of duty to the
same imports from all nations;
they cannot discriminate.

If the Bahamas lost its duty-
free preferences by remaining
outside the EPA, the. Bacardi,
Polymers International and sea

food products would all see their’

prices increase and become
uncompetitive.

For Bacardi, loss of duty-free
access would see tariffs imposed
on its rum equivalent to $5 per
gallon.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs
document said: “An additional
cost of $5 per gallon would make
the Bahamian-produced rum
uncompetitive, and would likely
cause Bacardi to shift its produc-
tion to either Puerto Rico or
Mexico, where the MEN tariffs
are not applicable.

“For the Bahamas, the loss
would, bé!substantial, and would
include the loss of $13. 262 million

Doct

in excise taxes, as well as the loss |
of approximately 180 jobs for |

Bacardi's Bahamian workers.”

Just over $35 million worth of |

sea food products were exported
to the EU from the Bahamas in
2004, and loss of duty-free access
would lead to a 12.5 per cent tar-
iff being imposed.

Referring to Anthony McKin-

“ney, head of Paradise Fisheries,

the Ministry of Foreign Affairs
briefing note said this would raise
the price of Bahamian lobster by
$2.42 2.50 per pound, making it
ee
The loss to the Bahamas would
be the value of the lobster export-
ed, and the income loss of the
Bahamian fishermen who catch
the lobster, as well as $649,259 in
royalties. It is possible that alter-
native markets for the lobster
would be found, but there would
be no guarantee that the price
obtained would be as good as the
European Union prices,” the
Ministry’s analysis read.

Excerpt

‘The excerpt on Polymers Inter-
national showed how the EPA
could have an‘impact potentially
stretching beyond the firms and
industries directly affected.

The document read: “The
MEN tariff on polymers range
from 7- 12 per cent, and the prin-
cipals of Freeport polymers have
indicated that if they lose their
duty-free entry into the EU mar-
ket, it would not be profitable 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 con-
tractors, who supply services to

.. Polymers, as well as the loss of.
_ approximately 10 per cent of

Freeport Power’s revenue, since

. Polymers uses approximately 10

per cent of the electricity gener-
ated by Freeport Power.”

Jobs at the Freeport Container
Port and Grand Bahama-based
trucking companies might also be
impacted if Polymers lost its EU
business.

The Government document
added that if the Bahamas signed
on to the EPA, it would lose
about $10-$14 million in per
annum tax revenues on European
imports. °

As a two-way agreement, if the
Bahamas signs on to the EPA, it

would have to offer the same tar-
iff cuts to exports trom the EU

as those countries were offering
Bahamian companies, thus reduc-
ing import duties and the tax take.

The EPA would also see the
Bahamas offer market access to
EU firms in areas such as invest-

' ments, services and government

procurement, provided it did not
seek any reservations or opt-outs
from particular provision.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs

' concluded: “Were the Bahamas

| would be in the $10 - $14million
| range, but the Bahamas would
; keep its export markets and

| Bahamian jobs.
| “If, however, the Bahamas
, Were not to sign on to the EPA,
the losses could include, its
favourable $20 million trade bal-
/ ance with the EU, the loss of two
| significant manufacturing opera-
| tions (Bacardi and Polymers), the
\revenue from lobster exports, and
ithe loss of a number of Bahamian
jobs.
_. “One of the conclusions to be
drawn from the above analysis is
that, maintaining its preferential
-access to the European market is
in the best interest of the
Bahamas. Thus in determining
the structure of its market access
offer, the Bahamas could seek to
mitigate its revenue losses over
the long term, while maintaining
market access.’

, The Ministry. recommended
that the Bahamas seek to exclude
from the EPA negotiations cuts in
tariffs on poultry, fresh meat,
fruits and vegetables.

It added that Bahamas tariff
rates between 5-30 per cent
should be cut in the short-term,
while those of 35 per cent and
higher be slashed in a phased,
long-term approach.

The Bahamas imported almost
$43 million worth of goods from
the EU in 2004, with more than
half - some $23.254 million - con-
fined to 16 tariff lines, nine of
which were duty free. This meant
that some $9.299 million entered
the Bahamas duty free.

From this, the Government
worked out that. the maximum
duty the remaining $33.631 mil-
lion could attract was $14.3 mil-
lion.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs
recommended that negotiating as

Deputy Prime Minister says
participants will be punished

@ By KARIN HERIG .
Tribune Staff ‘Reporter

THE ‘work stoppage by
prison officers this past week
was illegal and each participant
will be punished with the “max-
imum fines permitted,” Minis-
ter of National Security Cyn-
thia Pratt declared last night in

- the House of Assembly.

Addressing parliament on
the issue of a go-slow which
escalated into a massive sick-
out at the prison, Mrs Pratt said
that in addition to the officers
being made to pay fines for the

four-days in-question,: the exec

utive of the Prison Officers
Staff Association also will be
required to make a “sincere
and appropriate public apology
to the deputy prime minister
and minister of national securi-
ty and to the superintendent of
prisons.”

“Each officer who engaged
in the work stoppage will be
reprimanded and will suffer the

reduction of three days in his
or her accumulate leave,” she
said.

Mrs Pratt said that reliable.

evidence exists that the assaci-
ation’s executive “actively
engaged in pressuring officers
to join the work stoppage.”

“On the weekend of the
work stoppage, efforts were
made to damage the prison’s
water system and the prison’s
kitchen staff came in for direct
pressure to join the industrial
action,” she said. _

The Minister of National
Security said that in addition

to. the work stoppage being ille-.

gal, it was also without cause.
“Over the past two years the
superintendent of Her
Majesty’s Prison maintained
cordial and open communica-
tions with the Prison Officers

gramme was developed.
The Cable Beach develop-

"ers yesterday said the pro-

gramme complied with all rel-
evant Bahamian laws, regula-
tions and guidelines, and both
the Government and trade
unions who represented its
employees had been notified.

“T’ve always believed that if
you're going to eliminate head
count, a voluntary programme
has the best chance of suc-
ceeding,” Mr Robinson said.

“It allows everyone to make
decisions for themselves, rather
than me take the decision on
their future for them.

“Voluntary Separation
Plans, in particular, are con-
sidered a ‘best practice’ among
the world’s leading corpora-
tions because they empower
employees to take control over
their personal futures.

“By encouraging our current
staff to think about such choic-
es as continuing education and
professional development, a
change of career or employ-
ment, even early retirement,
we hope to maintain Cable
Beach Resorts’ competitive-
ness during a period of exciting
change and development that,
by 2011, will make all of the
Bahamas proud and result in a
total of more than 5,000 jobs.”

There have been relatively
few Early Retirement and Vol-
untary Separation Plans
offered by corporate entities
in the Bahamas, though.

Mr Robinson said Baha Mar
had:a number of decisions to
make about staffing levels
across its operations, but had
no specific target in terms of
the number of workers it

hoped would take up the pack-

age.

He addéd that the company
would see how the voluntary
programme worked, how
many took it up, and then
reassess and re-evaluate the
business from there. He hinted
that the programme could
even be extended.

Employees at Baha Mar’s
Cable Beach Resorts have
been given a six-week window
in which to consider their
options and whether they want
to participate. The actual
retirement and separation
dates, though, will differ
depending on the employee
and his/her role, although the
programme is available to staff
in both Florida and the
Bahamas up to director level.

However, Cable Beach
Resorts has the right to accept
or reject any individual appli-
cation to join the plan, which is
non-discriminatory as to age,
gender, position and length of
employment.

Mr Robinson told The Tri-
bune that employees partici-
pated in such programmes
because they wanted to retire,
go back to school or saw an
opportunity to “bank money”
and seek employment else-
where.

Those who participate and
enhance their skills through
continuing education and train-
ing after leaving Cable Beach
Resorts have been promised
“first interview consideration”
for when hiring begins in 2010.

Meanwhile, Mr Robinson
said talks with the Government
on the supplemental Heads of
Agreement that are key for



THE TRIBUNE



aha Mar: ‘No major
urdle’ to March 1
- Heads deadline

enabling Baha Mar to con-
summate its alliances were
“going well”.

There had been two to three
meetings between the devel-
opers and the Government
over the past week, plus a con-
ference call yesterday.

Mr Robinson said: “The
process is going well. Every-
one is working towards that
date. Both sides are still com-
mitted to it. At this time, I
don’t see any major hurdles
stopping us from hitting that
date.”

March 1 is the “critical
benchmark date” for Baha
Mar’s $2.4 billion project, as
sealing a supplemental Heads
of Agreement with the Gov-
ernment by then would allow
the company to comfortably
conclude its joint venture
agreement with Harrah’s by
the mid-March closing date.

Baha Mar has to “deliver a
number of conditions prece-
dent” to Harrah’s and Star-
wood by that date, and failure
to meet it could cause prob-
lems, as both companies have
‘walk-away’ clauses in their
agreements. There has been
no sign they are likely to exer-
cise this, though.

Mr Robinson said he was
yesterday discussing with Har-
rah’s “the process for the next
couple of years”, in terms of
the company’s involvement
with not just the existing Crys-
tal Palace casino but other

aspects of the project, includ-

ing training and marketing pro-
grammes.

“Everyone is focused on this
becoming the best destination
resort,” he added.

The 1960 amendments to the
Hawksbill Creek Agreement
include Clause 4, which allows
for the creation by statute of a
‘Local Authority’ that can exer-
cise “powers of local government
or administration” in the Port
Authority area.

The key is sub-clause 2 of this
clause, which allows the Port
Authority through a‘written
agreement to transfer all its
“rights, powers and obligations”
to this Local Authority.

This, then, effectively paves the
way for the Port Authority to
transfer all its regulatory, licens-
ing, and quasi-governmental pow-
ers to another entity while main-

taining its private, profit-making .

interests.

The catch, though, is that such
an agreement between the Port
Authority and a ‘Local Authority’
must be approved by at least 80
per cent of the former’s licensees.
This effectively gives a major say
over the Port Authority and
Freeport’s future to its licensees.

And Clause 3(8) stipulates that
no amendments can be made to
the Hawksbill Creek Agreement
without the consent of-at least 80
per cent of GBPA licensees.

expires without a new agree-
ment in place, there will be
adverse consequences for the
competitiveness of Bahamian
goods entering the European

determined to avoid that,” the
statement said.

The EPA allows for tax con-
cessions between the Bahamas
and European countries, allow-
ing firms in this nation such as
Bacardi, Paradise Fisheries and
Polymers to sell their wares
more competitively.

According to the release,
there has been “the fullest con-
sultation” with the private sec-
tor on this matter. It added:
“The Bahamas Chamber of
Commerce, the Grand
Bahama Chamber of Com-
merce, Bacardi, Paradise Fish-
eries and Polymers of
Freeport, Grand Bahama, all
attended a meeting at the min-
istry to discuss the way for-

“The government is always
very cognizant of protecting
the interests of Bahamians in
the economy. It had embarked

. on the widest consultation pos-
sible with the private sector
and other stakeholders prior
to entering into trade negotia-
tions, and will continue to con-
sult with the Bahamian peo-
ple.

The release also responded
to a Tribune Business article .
under the headline, Drifiting
trade policy hurts the Bahamas,
saying this was “far off the
mark”.

“That characterisation is
completely false. Our trade
policy is not isolationist and it

“To the contrary, the coun-

Wall Street
stocks surge.

NEW YORK (AP) — Wall
Street stocks surged Tuesday,
pushing up the Dow Jones
industrials by more than 100
points as a report that two
companies are trying to buy
Alcoa Inc. stoked investors’
hopes for a pickup in takeover
activity.

Australia-based mining
companies BHP Billiton Ltd.
and Rio Tinto PLC are each
planning to offer $40 billion
for the aluminum producer,
according to the Times of Lon-
don.

The report came amid Hin-
dalco Industries Ltd.’s $3.6 bil-
lion offer to buy Canadian alu-
minum maker Novelis Inc.,

‘and drugstore operator CVS

Corp.’s move to bump up the

The US trade deficit set a

record for a fifth straight year,
and the imbalance with China
soared to an all-time high as
well.

The Bush administration
pledged to keep pursuing its
free-trade policies, while
Democrats now controlling
Congress demanded a change
in course.

The gap between what the
US sells abroad and what it
imports rose to a record $763.6
billion last year, up 6.5 per cent
from the previous record of
$716.7 billion in 2005, the
Commerce Department
reported Tuesday.

For December, the deficit
jumped a bigger-than-expected

- 5.3 per cent to $61.2 billion.

Bush administration officials
said the wider deficits were
primarily a factor of faster
growth in the United States
and warned against pursuing

KB Home
reports loss
in its fourth
quarter

LOS ANGELES (AP) —
KB Home reported a loss in
its fourth quarter Tuesday as
the homebuilder absorbed a
series of charges related to
inventory and land options and
saw the number of net orders
for homes decline sharply
amid a tough housing market.

But the company’s financial
results exceeded Wall Street’s

expectations, and its shares -

rose $1.49, or 2.9 per cent, to
close at $53.43 on the New
York Stock Exchange.

KB Home and other major
home sellers have been scram-
bling to cope with the effects
of a housing market downturn
caused by an excess supply of
new and resale homes on the
market and high prices that
have left many would-be buy-
ers, particularly in major mar-
kets, hard pressed to buy a
home.

Many buyers looking to
enter the market have been
reluctant to do so, anticipat-
ing prices have further to fall,
resulting in more competition
and prompting homebuilders
to lower prices and offer other
sales incentives — moves that
can erode sales margins.

Judge orders
drugstore
operator

to delay

: shareholder

vote on
proposed
acquisition

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP)
— A Delaware judge ordered
Caremark Rx Inc. to delay a
shareholder vote on a pro-
posed acquisition by CVS
Corp. just hours after the drug-
store operator heated up the
bidding Tuesday by tripling
the special cash dividend it
proposes to pay.

. Caremark shareholders
were initially scheduled to
meet February 20, but the vote
was delayed until March 9 in
an order signed by Chancellor
William B Chandler III.

Chandler is hearing a share-
holder lawsuit challenging the
Caremark-CVS deal filed by
Louisiana Municipal Police
Employees’ Retirement Sys-

’ tem. Lawyers for the pension

fund asked the judge to post-
pone the shareholder vote
because it needs more time to
consider the latest offer from



CVS and other recent disclo-
sures by Caremark.

CVS said it would raise the
dividend payment to Care-
mark shareholders from $2 per
share to $6 after several share-
holders and proxy advisers
called the CVS offer too low.

Mining
giants
preparing
S$40bn
takeover
bids for
Alcoa

PITTSBURGH (AP) —
Alcoa Inc. is being targeted by

two foreign mining giants who ~

are each preparing $40 billion
takeover bids for the alu-
minum producer, a British
newspaper reported. Alcoa
shares rose nearly six per cent
Tuesday although some ana-
lysts questioned whether such
a deal was likely.

BHP Billiton Ltd., the
world’s largest mining compa-
ny, and Rio Tinto PLC, the
world’s second largest iron ore
producer, both based in Mel-
bourne, Australia, are said to
be considering offers, the
Times of London reported in
Tuesday’s editions, citing
unnamed sources.

Alcoa shares rose $2.10, or
6.38 per cent, to close at $35
Tuesday on the New York
Stock Exchange after rising as
high as $36.05 earlier in the
session. TA

Coca-Cola ~..

reports
S$1.7bn loss
in fourth
quarter
ATLANTA (AP) — Coca-
Cola Enterprises Inc., the

biggest bottler of Coca-Cola
beverages, said Tuesday it

would cut about 3,500 jobs, or -

4.7 per cent of its work force,
as it reported a whopping $1.7
billion loss in the fourth quar-
ter.

The Atlanta-based compa-
ny said it expects to report a
corresponding charge of about
$300 million, which will be
booked in 2007 and 2008.

The move had been widely
anticipated by analysts who

said the company has strug- |

gled with higher costs for alu-
minum and other commodi-
ties and a shift in consumer
tastes away from carbonated
beverages to juices, teas and
waters.

CCE currently has 74,000
employees, spokeswoman
Laura Asman said.

Wells Fargo
becomes
latest big
bank to

undercut

online stock
brokers
with new
incentive
package

SAN FRANCISCO (AP)
— Wells Fargo & Co. on Tues-
day became the latest big bank
to undercut online stock bro-
kers with a new incentive
package that promises to
waive Internet trading fees for
more customers more often.

Customers ‘who have com-
bined $25,000 in deposits or
loans at Wells will qualify for
up to 100 free online trades
annually of stocks, no-load
mutual funds and exchange
traded funds, or ETFs. If a
borrower has a home mort-
gage, only 10 per cent of the
debt will be counted toward

‘the $25,000 minimum needed

to qualify for the free online
trades.

By including loan balances
and mutual fund trades in its
package, Wells Fargo hopes to
upstage rival Bank of America
Corp., which in October
unveiled plans to give away up
to 360 free online stock trades
annually to customers with at
least $25,000 in deposits.

Google loses
copyright

EAs

to Belgian
newspapers

BRUSSELS, Belgium (AP)
— Google Inc. lost a copyright
lawsuit Tuesday to Belgian
newspapers that had demand-
ed it remove headlines and
links to articles posted on its
news site without their per-
mission.

The ruling, if it stands on
appeal, could set a precedent
for how Web search engines
link to copyrighted material in
the tumultuous arena of online
news, according to the Belgian
copyright group that launched
the case.

Google said it would appeal,
claiming its Google News ser-
vice was. “entirely legal” and
the Belgian ruling did not set
any precedent.

The Brussels Court of First
Instance ruled that Mountain
View, California-based Google
could not rely on exemptions,
such as claiming “fair use,”
because it says it reviews press
articles when it displays head-
lines, a few lines of text, photos
and links to the original page.

Office Depot’s 4Q profit rises.
27% but misses forecast

Ww By BRIAN SKOLOFF
Associated Press Writer .

‘WEST PALM BEACH,
Florida (AP) — Office Depot
Inc., the nation’s second-largest
office supplies retailer, said
Wednesday its fourth-quarter
earnings rose 27 per cent as the
chain cut operating costs and
used promotions to drive holi-
day sales.

Net income jumped to $135
million, or 48 cents per share,
from $106.3 million, or 34 cents
per share, a year ago. Earnings
adjusted to exclude certain items
were $151.7 million, or 54 cents
per share, versus $117.1 million,
or 38 cents per share, in the 2005
quarter.

But analysts, whose estimates

typically exclude items, were
looking for profit of 52 cents per
share, according to Thomson

Financial, and the company’s

shares fell 84 cents, or 2.27 per
cent, to $36.67 in afternoon trad-
ing on the New York Stock
Exchange.

“We are pleased with the per-
formance of our business in the
fourth quarter,” company Chair-
man and CEO Steve Odland
said Wednesday during a con-
ference call with investors. “This
overall growth in sales and oper-
ating margin expansion was real-
ized despite a highly promo-
tional holiday retail environment
and reduced technology sales.”

Sales for the Delray Beach,
Florida-based company rose
four per cent to $3.84 billion

Strong leadership, communication and problem: solving

from $3.72 billion, but were

slightly below Wall Street’s esti-

pany’s North American Retail
Division had an operating prof-

quarter, up from $103 million in
the same period in 2005. Same-
store sales in North America
rose one per cent. Same-store
sales, or sales in stores open at
least one year, are a key mea-

executive, said: “I am pleased

GSSSA are ‘told to reinstate
- Student Cedricka Sweeting

*

’

_- MBy KELSIE JOHNSON
Sports Reporter

THE Ministry of Education
reinforced their decision on

the Government Secondary -

- School Sporting Association
. (GSSSA) to reinstate Cedric-
‘ka Sweeting on Tuesday night.
. According to the Director

of Education Cecil Thomp-
«son, Minister of Education
* Alfred Sears told members of
, the Principal Association and
4GSSSA_ president Edna
~ Forbes to reinstate 14-year-

aaa 4 o.Â¥

eee an & 6 6.9.9. 9.4%".



Director of Education

says matter is cleared



_ old Sweeting immediately.

Thompson, who apologised
for the manner in which the
problem was handled, reas-

sured The Tribune yesterday

that the matter is cleared,
claiming that all parties

attending the meeting have a
very clear picture on the Min-
ister’s take.

“We met with them and we
told them the young child
must be reinstated,” said
Thompson.



Stingrays in action at track meet

“This decision was rein-
forced upon the Principals
Association and Mr Newbold
is to forward a copy to all prin-
cipals on this matter.

“IT am not running from my
decision on the letter that was
sent out from my office. I have
no doubt that this is the right
decision to take. If I look at it
10 years from now it would
have been the right decision
to make.”

It is not certain which steps
the Ministry of Education will
take if the orders are dis-

obeyed again, but Thompson

_did reveal that a process is in

place in case this happens, .
He said: “Well I have no
doubt that Ms Forbes and the
person involved know what to
do.” “
Meanwhile, HO Nash junior
girls basketball team head
coach Patty Johnson, who had
remained quiet in the process
of the Cedricka Sweeting case,
said she can no longer sit aside
and watch what she claims is
unfair treatment. being placed
on an eighth grade student.

Johnson said: “We have two
students at HO Nash right:
now, one was transferred from
AF Adderley and Cedricka
who came from DW Davis.

The one from AF Adderley,

she played volleyball for me
this year, last season.

“She was granted the letter
of eligibility and Cedricka was
denied. Now why Cedricka’s
was denied I can’t tell you.” .

The HO Nash Lions were

scheduled to play yesterday,

results from this game were
not available up to presstime.

- Nikia Deveax
to compete in
relay at NCAA
championships

@ SWIMMING
By KELSIE JOHNSON
Sports Reporter



NIKIA Deveaux will not compete in an indi-

vidual event at this year’s NCAA swimming”

championships, but she will be a part of her uni-
versity’s nationally ranked relay team.

Deveaux, a senior at the University of Ken-
tucky Wildcats, was a part of the record break-
ing 200-freestyle relay team that achieved the
NCAA A standard on Thursday past at the
Southeastern Conference (SEC).

The time of 1:29.27 seconds not only crushed
the standard entry time of 1:31.01 seconds, but
set a new school record as well. The old school
record was 1:31.99 seconds. ha)

Deveaux said: “I am not disappointed about
not swimming the entry times for individual
races. I was really close in some of my events
and besides being a part of an historic relay
team is a little better in my books.

“I move onto the relays with ease because I

: know that the team I am a part of is great. We

are second in the country right now, that is a
huge deal. So to know that I contributed to
that feat and participated in the event makes
me feel proud.”

The record breaking quartet includes Jen- ©

ny and Heather Bradford, Deveaux and Lauren
Willis.

Heather Bradford got things started for the
team, completing the first leg in a time of 22.77
seconds. The fast pace by Heather placed the
Wildcats in the second spot.

Up next for the Wildcats was Willis, who
turned in a split of 22.48 seconds, to maintain
the close second place positioning.

With 100m left, Deveaux took to the pool to
clock 22.76 seconds.

She said: “I was very pleased with my split

time inthe relay. I had a split time of 22.76, so
if I can go 22.50 I will view that as an amazing
job for just three weeks.

“IT am hoping with a little more training,
especially since I jumped back into training,
that I can do it. We didn’t have any time off
from the conference championships, so that
should help me swim a faster time.”

Even though Deveaux only has the relays
to complete, she will still have to take her time, ©
having the preliminaries, semifinals and finals
to take part in.

Deveaux, the only female to represent the
Bahamas at the last Olympic Games, under-
went surgery on her shoulder in her sopho-
more year.

Injury

But, she says the injury she sustained will
not slow her down or deter her efforts at the
championships.

“Tam ready to compete,” said just hours
before she headed to practice.

“My shoulder is coming along. I had a shoul-

- der surgery my sophomore year. I am always

going to have problems with it, constant prob-
lems, but I keep it under control. It is not a
huge deal, it is just a little obstacle.” _

The NCAA championships is just the tip off
the iceberg for Deveaux, who stili has the Pan
American Championship Games to prepare
for.

Although she has more than 150 days to
prepare for the games, which are set for July
13th-29th, Deveaux said: “I only need a small
break and then I will start my intense training
once again.”

The NCAA championships are set for March
9th-19th, in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Sree Chandra |
Sturrup’s mother, the

late Deborah Dean, played a
pivotal role in the development
of the female national 100
metre champion.

Mrs Dean, 51, passed away
on Friday after’a long illness

. with multiple myeloma, a dead-

ly cancerous disease.
Over the years, especially

after Sturrup started competing

on the international scene for
the Bahamas, Mrs Dean made
an effort to travel to watch her
daughter compete - no matter

where her travels took her.

Even when she was diag-
nosed with the disease, Mrs
Dean still found a way to travel.

I could remember going as
far as Sydney, Australia for the
2000 Olympic Games and there
she was among the small group
of Bahamian fans who made the
long tfek to support the team.

Mrs Dean was not just there
to cheer‘on Chandra, who com-

peted in the 100 and as a mem- |

ber of the women’s 4 x 100
metre relay team that claimed
the gold at the 1999 World
Championships in Seville, Spain
and the Olympics Down Under
the following year.

It was a sad day in 2004 when
an emotional Sturrup made a_

public appeal for financial assis-
tance to help her mom. Over
thé‘past three years, whenever
you saw Mrs Dean, she said she

was grateful for whatever sup-



within twenty-eight

-Chandra’s mo

STUBBS



port she got.

I’ve never seen a parent,
going through such adversity,
who was there for her child the
way Mrs Dean was for Sturrup.

Obviously, Sturrup’s career
over the last few years has been
hampéred by the difficulties her
mother was experiencing. But
it’s good to see that she’s still
trying to regain her form in her
quest to get back to the level
where she excelled as one of
the top sprinters in the world.

No doubt, Sturrup will have

- to endure the grief of the loss of
her mother as she continues to
prepare for another appearance
in the World Championships in
Osaka, Japan in August.

But I’m sure that as she’s
handled the ordeal as she did, as
well as coming back from the
surgery she went through last
year, Sturrup could still be a
force to reckon with.

Mrs Dean may be gone, but

@ CHALLENGE ISSUED

D ON’T expect there to
be any love lost when
Jermaine ‘Choo Choo’ Mack-
ey puts his Bahamas super mid-
dleweight title on*the line
against challenger Elkena ‘Ali’
Saunders next month.

Saunders said he’s tired of
waiting to get a shot at the title .
and he wants it now.

First Class Promotions is
granting him his wish as the big
showdown is set for Thursday,
March 1 at the Kendal Isaacs
Gymnasium. " :

Forget the fact that they have
been childhood friends, they
fought in the amateur ranks
around the same time and
emerged on the professional
scene at about the same time
as well.

Forget the fact that they both
stood in each other’s wedding as
they got married to their high
school sweethearts and that
they stood as Godfather to each
other’s first child.

’ Professional boxing has no
barriers, especially when both
fighters are in the same weight
class. Everybody wants to be
the champion and they will do
whatever it take to get to the
top.

It will be interesting to see if
there will be any making up
after the two close friends clash
in the ring, regardless of the
outcome.

This certainly has the mak-
ings for a really good boxing
match.

In fact, I think it can be
another classic episode to rival
the three match-ups that Ray
Minus Jr.-and Quincy ‘the
Thrill-A-Minute’ Pratt endured.

Look for this one to be an all-

out wat When it’s staged. .

The Kansas City Star :

g- arty Schottenheimer isn’t
likely to shed any tears over
the unfairness of his dis-

Chargers. Marty knows, better than
most, that pro football is rarely fair.
So he will take his 200 victories

age 63, Marty, in all likelihood, sabo- ©



. taged his last and best chance to win.a

_ Super Bowl by attempting to hire his
brother, Kurt, as defensive coordina-
tor of the Chargers.

- THE FINAL STRAW

According to published reports in

~ San Diego, Marty’s insistence on
interviewing his brother to replace
Wade Phillips pushed team president
Dean Spanos to grant Smith’s wish of
canning Marty.

Given Marty’s 2007 lame-duck sta-
tus, it sort of made sense for him to
want to fill his raided coaches staff
with people he could trust. Going into
the final year of his contract, who
could Marty trust more than his
brother, a man who owes his entire
coaching career to Marty?

And given Marty’s hostile relation-

. ship with Smith, who beyond Kurt
~~ would be willing to join Marty in San
Diego’s dysfunction?
This is going to haunt Marty Schot-
_ tenheimer more than The Drive, The
Fumble, Lin Elliott and Rich Gannon.

Marty coached very good teams in -

Cleveland and Kansas City, teams that
could have won Super Bowls with the
right breaks. In San Diego, Marty
coached the NFL’s best team, a squad

that should have won the Super Bowl. .

Now someone else will get to
direct LaDainian Tomlinson and
Shawne Merriman. Now someone’
else will finish what Marty started.

The Chargers are sitting in the
same spot as the Tampa Bay Bucca-
neers were in five years ago after dis-

missing Tony Dungy. The Bucs hada .

veteran, ascending feam ready to win
a championship. They couldn’t afford
to hire an unproven head coach. They
needed a coach who could win now.

- They gave up a fortune to getJon ~
Gruden, and he took the Bucs to the
Super Bowl right away.

WHO GETS THE JOB?

Who is that coach for the Char-
‘gers? It’s complicated now because of
the late date of Marty’s firing.

The Chargers should think outside

- the box. I'd try to lure Dick Vermeil
‘out of retirement for one year and
pair him with Mike Singletary or Ron
Rivera or Jim Caldwell or some other
ascending assistant coach.

It would be a mistake to turn this

_ team over to an inexperienced head |
_coach.The goal in San Diego is to win

_ Super Bowl XLII. A rookie or a well-
traveled retread (Norv Turner) is
unlikely to get the Chargers where
they need to go in the AFC, which is
home to the Colts, Patriots, Ravens,
Steelers, Bengals and Jaguars — teams
.with enough talent to win it all.

And what is next for Marty?

He won’t experience the same fate
as Dungy, who landed a dream gig
with Peyton Manning, the league’s
best quarterback, and Bill Polian, the
league’s best general manager. .

Dungy’s ego allows him to work
for a control-freak GM. Dungy is con-

’ tent coaching and letting Polian han- |

dle personnel. Marty doesn’t work
' that way. Marty wants ultimate
authority. He and Carl Peterson tan-
gled over personnel in Kansas City.
Marty will land another coaching
job. But he will never coach another

team as talented as the one he leaves -

behind in San Diego. Monday’s events

mer will never win a Super Bowl.

Duncan, Spurs cae Pistons’ run

Associated Press

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. — The
San Antonio Spurs had every
excuse to put forth a lackluster
performance Wednesday night —
and didn’t need to use any of them.

' Tim Duncan scored 23 points,
and Francisco Elson added 12
points and 18 rebounds, as the
road-weary Spurs snapped the
Detroit Pistons’ seven-
game winning streak
with a 90-81 victory.

“We've been incon-

nice to see us put
together 48 good minutes,” Spurs
coach Gregg Popovich said.
“That’s one of our best games all

“It wasn’t tough at all to get up

GAINESVILLE, Fla. — No. 1 Florida was only

another 3-pointer, then made all six free throws
in the final 2 minutes to seal the victory.

Green finished 6-of-13 from the field and had

Joakim Noah and Al Horford were relatively

and Horford had 12 points and six boards.

For all the hype Noah and Horford get for
their dominance down low and all the attention

“This is not the action of an

Singletary has
interview for
Chargers job

From Miami Herald Wire Services

Hall of Fame linebacker
Mike Singletary thinks he’s
ready to become an NFL head
coach after just four seasons as
an assistant.

He got his chance to try to
convince the San Diego Char-
gers on Wednesday, less than
48 hours after they fired
Marty Schottenheimer.

“There’s no doubt in my
mind,” Singletary said after
emerging from his interview.
“Absolutely.”

Singletary, the San Fran-
cisco 49ers assistant head
coach, was the first candidate
to meet with team executives.

Schottenheimer was fired
on Monday by Chargers presi-
dent Dean Spanos, who said
there was a “dysfunctional sit-
uation” between. the coach
and general manager A.J.
Smith. San Diego was an NFL-
best 14-2 last season before
falling apart in its playoff
opener, a 24-21 loss to New
England.

Singletary was inducted
into the Hall of Fame in 1998.
He began his coaching career
in 2003 as the inside-lineback-
ers coach of the Baltimore
Ravens.

The former Chicago Bears
great said he’s heard the talk

.about his relative lack of
coaching experience.

“If I hadn’t played the
game, if I hadn’t been around
the game as long as I’ve been
around it and if I hadn't
coached it for the time that
I’ve coached it in the role that
I’ve been in, I think I might
agree with that,” he said. “My
question is always, ‘Do you
want .experience or do you
want results? I think that’s

‘ what I’m all about.”
Singletary also interviewed
for the head coaching jobs
with Atlanta and Dallas. The
Cowboys job went to Wade-
Phillips, who had been the
Chargers’ defensive coordina-
tor. Singletary interviewed last
year for the Detroit Lions job.
Ravens defensive coordina-
tor Rex Ryan, the son of for-

is scheduled to interview
today.

e Elsewhere: Kansas City
defensive end Jared Allen
will serve two days in jail for

. driving under the influence of
alcohol. The sentence came
Wednesday after Allen
pleaded no contest in Lea-
wood (Kan.) Municipal Court.
The judge then found him
guilty of the charge. Allen’s

_ two-day stint will be at the
Johnson County Jail. He also
must spend two days in a lock-
down treatment program and
one day on house arrest. The
case stemmed from a Septem-
ber stop in Leawood. It was
Allen’s second DUI charge. ...
Wesley Phillips, the son of
new Cowboys coach Wade
Phillips, and former line-
backer Dat Nguyen have
been added to Dallas’ coaching
staff. Wesley Phillips was
named an offensive-assistant
coach, the team said in a post-
ing on its website late Tuesday
night. The 27-year-old was
quarterbacks coach at Baylor
last season. Nguyen, a former
Dallas standout who retired
last year because of a neck
injury, was named an assis-
tant-linebackers coach. Both
new hires also will carry the
title of “quality control”
coaches. Also, Cowboys
owner Jerry Jones said
inside-linebackers coach Vin-
cent Brown, who coached
one year for the Cowboys
under former head coach Bill
Parcells, is leaving the team.
On Wednesday, Ray Sher-
man and John Garrett were
hired as assistants. Sherman,
who had been with eight other
NFL teams dating to 1988, will
be the receivers coach. Gar-
rett, the brother of offensive
assistant Jason Garrett, will
coach tight ends. ... Ron
Aiken, defensive-line coach at

Tiki recalls tough times

Tiki Barber spent part of his first day as a fuli-time media
personality criticizing his former boss at his last day job.

Barber, who will work on NBC’s Today Show and on the
network’s Sunday night football coverage, said his problems
with New York Giants coach Tom Coughlin had “started to
take its toll on me” and that it was an “act of God” that the
physical demands Coughlin placed on him did not result in
serious injuries. 4

“Coach Coughlin is very hard-nosed, and I didn’t get a lot
of time off, couldn’t sit down and rest myself, and so it was a
constant grind — a physical grind on me that started to take
its toll,” Barber told reporters Tuesday after his introduction
as the newest correspondent of the Today Show.

“The grind took its toll on me and really forced me to start
thinking about what I wanted to do next. And that’s not a bad
thing. That’s a good thing, for me at least. Maybe not for the
Giants, because they lose one of their great players, but for
me, it is.” ;

Barber, 31, retired as a Pro Bowl running back, scoring a
touchdown in the NFL all-star game last weekend. Barber and
Coughlin had their rough spots, particularly when Barber said
the Giants were outcoached after a playoff loss a season ago.

Barber admitted he had some of his best seasons under
Coughlin, and that he might not have done'so without him.
But he still believes Coughlin needs to change his approach.

“He has changed in little ways, but I think:hestill has to
more,” Barber said. “The game has changed, players are dif-
ferent, and you have to understand them and get to know
them in order to encourage and motivate them to be success-
ful. We'll see what happens this season.”

The Washington Post \
Eddie Jordan and Gilbert Arenas
_had a fuss. Those usually work out.
Coaches need 30-point scorers. Point
guards who play poor defense and
take crazy shots need coaches who
appreciate them. Brendan Haywood
and Etan Thomas, on the other hand, '
have a two-year-long, fist-fighting
feud. Those are pure poison. Until
the Washington Wizards’ war at cen-
ter ends, little good can happen.

Luckily for the: Wizards, Coach
Jordan and superstar Arenas like
each other, as they should. They’re
basically a couple of sweethearts, Jor-
dan with his sly humor and candor,
Arenas with his endearing eccentrici-
ties, such as a million-dollar birthday
party and “I'll drop 50 on you”
quotes. After their straight-talk meet-
ing Monday, with Jordan doing the
yacking, things should work out fine.

Team captain Antawn Jamison’s
clubhouse credibility helps, too.

“TI put [Gilbert] in the closet and
gave him a whipping,” Jamison said
after straightening out Agent Zero
for second-guessing Jordan’s coach-
ing style in a loss on Sunday.

So, as shellshocked as the Wizards

-are at the moment with Jamison
injured, Arenas’s frustrated outburst
at Jordan and the coach shooting
back at Arenas about lack of leader-
ship, it should subside, and they will
be pals at the All-Star Game. -

’ Usually, any flap between a coach
and a fan-favorite superstar is the
worst team-chemistry news that can
befall an NBA squad. The Wizards,
however, have.a much bigger and
longer-lasting problem that must be
resolved. The team’s two centers,
both signed through the 2010 season,
hate each other, and they don’t even
bother to hide it.

Haywood and Thomas have had at
least three brawls at practice in two
years, resulting in a suspension for
each. Thomas’s current self-inflicted
TKO kept him out of Wednesday
night’s game in Philadelphia. This

other in public, give each other the
cold shoulder during games, sit apart,
avoid eye contact — the whole kin-
dergarten program.

What a pathetic playground spec-
tacle. Each giant is in his sixth season,
all as Wizards. They are as good as
they’re ever going to get. And their
career stats tell it all: Haywood has
averaged 7 points and 5.7 rebounds
per game, Thomas, 6.2 points and
5 rebounds.

These guys, combined, barely

_ average a double-double. Wilt Cham-
berlain’s legacy is safe.

Yet for this combo production,
13.2 points per game this season,
Thomas is getting $5.9 million and
Haywood $4.5 million this season —
or nearly a million dollars per point a
game. They toss in the fistfights for
free. No pay-per-view charge to
teammates. Of course, they fight only
in practice, where it hurts the team
the most. Once games start, peace
breaks out. So Shaq is safe, too.

Fortunately, there is a solution.
Haywood and Thomas simply need a
reality check. But it will require a



Somewhere, somehow, each man
has become convinced that he would
be astar— if only that other jerk
wasn’t eating up his minutes.

Haywood and Thomas are not
blocking each other’s careers. They
are enabling each other to have
careers.

In reality, it is only as a tandem
that they can enjoy rich careers with
significant playing time for a winning
team. If either were suddenly
dropped onto the roster of a team
with a good center, he would be
reduced to a backup role in a heart-
beat. Almost nowhere else would
they receive the modest prominence
they get as Wizards, with whom each
man almost perfectly complements
the other’s weaknesses.

’ Where else could a player such as
Haywood call himself a starting cen-
ter, yet be third on his own team in
rebounding? Thomas, with 11 assists
this season, might be the least likely
player in the NBA to help a teammate
score a basket.

How can these guys fight? They
should hug before every practice and
have a beer after every game. They
are making each other wealthy by
disguising each other’s inadequacies..
Thomas can set a pick, and Haywood
can shoot a hook. But neither man
could survive playing 35 minutes a
night at center.

Both have high shooting percent-

"ages only because they seldom shoot

beyond point-blank range. Neither
even makes 58 percent of his free
throws. And when either touches the
ball, the offense comes to a halt.

On defense, tall centers simply
shoot over the wide-bodied Thomas,
and strong pivot men push Haywood
around. Neither averages even one
assist or one steal per game.
Together, they constitute one com-
petent shot-blocker. The reason the
pair can combine for about a dozen
points and rebounds on most nights
is because, when they’re in the game,

‘they can expend all their energy and

seldom pace themselves. Each pro-

while Haywood has the classic 7-foot,
263-pound physique. On some planet,
there might be a machine that could
meld the two men. But none is avail-
able in Washington. So these two
ludicrous combatants should wake"
up every day and give thanks that
they have each other as teammates.
No two players in the NBA, if they
saw things clearly, would appreciate
the other man more. But they don’t -
get it. Five-plus seasons of competing
for minutes has blinded them. To
evaluate their own games, they look
at their paychecks instead of watch-
ing game films or confronting the
facts on the stat sheet. oA

Over the next four years, the Wiz-
ards will pay Thomas $26.5 million
and Haywood $21 million. Which
might explain why Haywood’s
elbows get frisky: Haywood is aver-
aging 24.3 minutes per game, com-
pared with a mere 19.4 minutes for
Thomas. Oh, the inequity.

To make matters worse, when
Thomas and Haywood talk about
their feud, they instantly mortify
themselves. The least Haywood and

“T am trying to find my rhythm
after missing a month with this ankle

injury ...and this cat decides to hit

me with a cheap shot during practice,
and I reacted,” said Thomas, trying to
explain the pair’s punch-out last
week. “San Antonio just beat us by
what seemed like a hundred, but I
guess all that matters to him is he
didn’t get the minutes he thinks he
deserves, so he’s mad, which results
in a displacement of anger. Bottom
line, I’m not putting up with any gar-
bage from Brendan Todd Haywood.”
Did Bill Russell worry where his
rivals’ “displaced their anger?” Did
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar taunt competi-
tors with their middle names?
Besides, who is Thomas to talk?
“Etan” is derived from King Akhena-
ton. (Honest.) Don’t tell Haywood.
He'll tease Thomas about worship-
ping the sun and start another brawl.
What makes this situation doubly
ludicrous and unnecessary is that
Haywood and Thomas are, in gen-
eral, the opposite of problem players.

The Wizards might not be a won-

when they are playing well, is that
every player is suited to his role. Jam-
ison and Caron Butler can score 40
points between them, not 30 or 35,
because teams must defend Arenas -
first. Antonio Daniels and DeShawn
Stevenson are veterans delighted to
be complementary players.

Only Haywood and Thomas fail to
grasp their place in the scheme of
things. If they don’t fix their feud, the
Wizards will get rid of one of them.

ONE
LAST

Josh Hamilton, making
a fresh start with the
Cincinnati Reds, hopes to
resurrect a once-promising
career derailed by drugs

BY DAVE SHEININ
The Washington Post
SARASOTA, Fla. — The
Devil and the Son of God are
waging war from opposite cor-
ners of Josh Hamilton’s body.
As he guides his Chevy —
Tahoe onto Interstate 75 for
a 45-minute drive that weaves
through a minefield of ugly
memories, Hamilton, the Cin-
cinnati Reds’ newest out-

fielder, rests his once-prized

left arm on the door, and sud-
denly the Devil’s menacing
face appears, etched in ink in
the crook of Hamilton’s elbow.
As the truck speeds toward
Clearwater, where Hamilton
will spend another day work-
ing out in preparation for the
best — and possibly. last —
opportunity of his baseball
career, the tattoo devil peers
out the windshield. Below the
freeway sit some of the very
tattoo_parlors and crack
houses where Hamilton ° -
squandered his enormous ;



* potential years ago. A few — mn

n

miles ahead, in St. Petersburg,
the big-league stadium where
Hamilton was supposed to
have been astar rises from the
horizon to mock him.

The tattoo devil, having
long ago survived a bloody,
failed attempt at removal,
stares intently, gently prod-
ding Hamilton to pull over and
have some wild, wicked fun.
Just like in the old days.

-But on the back of Hamil-
ton’s right leg, the beatific face
of Jesus Christ, superimposed
over an enormous cross — one
of the last of the 26 tattoos
Hamilton got during his dark
period, that nearly four-year
stretch when he was out of the
game — pushes Hamilton’s
foot down on the accelerator,
and the Tahoe rushes on.

“Out of sight, out of mind,”
Hamilton says with a deep
Piedmont drawl, smiling con-

fidently. He tugs on his sleeve, .

pulling it below the elbow, and
the Devil disappears.

On this day, God is winning
the battle. In fact, He’s been
unbeaten now for 16 months.

A DESCENT INTO HELL

Before the Reds plucked.
Hamilton from the baseball
scrap heap in December with
the intent of putting him in the
big leagues for the first time,
before he and his family left
their North Carolina home
and rented a house in Sarasota
last month to get a jump-start
on his first spring training in
four years, and before the
clock on his sobriety began its
uninterrupted march on Oct.
6, 2005 — before all those
good things happened, Josh
Hamilton was a junkie.

Here in the Tahoe heading
toward Clearwater, Hamilton
waits until his wife, Katie,
secures headphones on Julia, 5,
her child from a previous rela-
tionship, and makes sure
Sierra, 17 months, is occupied
with animal crackers. Only
then does he tell his story.

Hamilton already has been
drug-tested this morning, as
he is three times a week. As he
heads north out of Sarasota on
I-75, the green exit signs
beckon toward Bradenton. It’s
a good place to begin the
story, because this is where
it all started to go bad.

drink ever — was at a strip
club down there, with the tat-
too guys,” Hamilton says.
“Pretty soon, I started using.
First the powder. Then crack.
“I was 20. I wasn’t playing.
I was hurt. My parents left and
went back home. I was by
myself for the first time.”

: Until spring 2001, Hamilton
was the golden, can’t-miss
prospect, but even that tag
doesn’t convey the immensity
of his talent. He was 6 feet 4,
210 pounds, left-handed, with
size 19 feet: He could throw
96 mph and was even better as
ahitter. The Tampa Bay Devil.
Rays had made him the first

‘ overall pick of the 1999 draft
and paid him a record signing
bonus of $3.96 million.

Hamilton’s parents, Linda
and Tony, quit their jobs to go
on the road with him. They
would follow the team bus in

Hm wseetheix-truck and-stay atthe .




‘same hotels, Linda cooking .
Josh's meals and Tony break-

hee Rav, Mille em ate es
"ing down his performance

after every game. ‘

But on Feb. 28, 2001, two
years into his pro career, Ham-
ilton was riding in his family’s
pickup when it was slammed
into by a dump truck that ran a
red light in Bradenton.

‘With Josh unable to play
because of a back injury, and
Linda requiring frequent med-
ical care, she and Tony
returned home to Raleigh,
N.C., leaving Josh alone for the
first time in his life — bored,
flush with cash and naive
about the ways of the world.

He got a tattoo: It read
“FAMMER,” his nickname.
Then came blue flames snak-
ing down his forearms, then -
tribal symbols whose mean-
ings Josh didn’t even know,
then assorted demons. The
tattoo parlor became a hang-
out; afterward, the crowd
there would all go out, get
drunk and score some blow.

When Hamilton went home
to Raleigh for a visit, his
mother broke into tears.

“What have you done to

_ your beautiful body?” she
asked him. “Tribal signs?
What tribe are you from?”

WASTED OPPORTUNITIES

.North of Bradenton, the
freeway veers left into
St. Petersburg, and directly
ahead stands the tilted, domed
roof of Tropicana Field.

By now, Hamilton ought to
be a perennial All-Star, sharing
the Tropicana Field outfield
with Carl Crawford and Rocco
Baldelli. Instead, he is a Cin-
cinnati Red, and a Hail Mary
project at that. After investing
eight years and millions of dol-
lars in Hamilton, the Devil

- Rays left him unprotected for

December’s Rule 5 draft — in
which teams can pluck away
other teams’ unprotected play-
ers, their leftovers — figuring
no one would take a 25-year-
old outfielder who went four
years without playing a game
— and whose last stop, last
summer, was in low Class A.

_ When the Reds snatched up
Hamilton, Devil Rays execu-
tives expressed mild surprise
but little remorse. But in June
1999, it was a far-different
story. To re-read the press
clippings is to marvel at the
juxtaposition of youth’s sweet

romise and life’s dark reality.

BA



BABY, I’VE SEEN IT ALL... Josh Hamilton, back in base
_ daughter Sierra after a workout in Clearwater, Fla.

“J think character may have
been the final determining fac-
tor,” Mark McKnight, the
Devil Rays’ regional scout,
told local reporters at the time.
“You read so many bad things
about professional athletes
these days, but I don’t think
you ever will about Josh.”

During Hamilton’s first
couple of years, the Devil Rays
grudgingly accepted his par-
ents’ constant presence. But
when he was promoted to low
Class A Hudson Valley in 1999,
they prodded him to stay with
ahost family in New York, as
the other players did.

Still, Tony and Linda found
a nearby hotel and traveled to
watch every game.

“We disagreed with how
they went about it, but it
wasn’t our place to say any-
thing,” says Al Stewart, who,
with his wife, served as Josh’s
host family. “We both thought
one of these days he was going
to break out. We didn’t think it
would be anything like this,
but we knew there was going
to be a backlash.”

Tony and Linda Hamilton,
whom Josh describes as “not
wanting to relive” the painful
past, did not return a phone
message seeking comment.
Josh rejects any notion that his
problems had anything to do
with his parents’ involvement.

“It was nothing they did,”
Hamilton says. “It was a
choice I made. Who can say it
wouldn’t have happened
sooner if they weren’t there?”

REHABS AND RELAPSES
Hamilton exits the freeway

--and pulls into a Chick-fil-A,

where the clan piles out. Every
head turns when Josh, built
like a Greek god, covered in
tattoos, carries the tray of food
to his family’s table.

This body is what saved his
life, more than likely, when
Hamilton snorted enough
cocaine to stop an elephant’s
heart, or guzzled a,750-ml bot-
tle of Crown Royal each day.

“There’s no reason I
shouldn't be dead or crippled,”
Hamilton says. “I did things to
where I shouldn’t be right
today. It just lets me know
there are bigger things out
there for me to do.”

WORKING HIS WAY BACK: Hamilton, who was the first overall selection of the 1999 baseball

draft, hits off a batting tee, with instr

in 2001 when the Devil Rays,
concerned that his back injury
was beginning to affect his
mental state, sent him to a
sports psychologist.

“Before I left,” Hamilton
says, “the guy asked me, ‘Is
there anything else you want
to talk about?’ I was naive.”

Hamilton told the psychol-
ogist he had been experiment-
ing with drugs.

“The next day, I was ona
plane to Betty Ford [rebab],”
Hamilton says, “But they tried
to make me believe the reason:
I did what I did was because of
my family. It pissed me off. So
I left after eight days.”

So began a four-year pat-
tern of rehabs and relapses:
Mote injuries led to more free
time, which led to more drugs,
which eventually led to a sus-
pension from baseball that
grew by another 12 months
with every failed test. Fora
long while, after moving back
home to Raleigh, Hamilton
quit the fight. From spring
training of 2003 until July
2006, he did not play an.inning
of organized baseball.

“Baseball, life in general, it
wasn’t a priority,” he says. “It
was basically getting high. ’'d
go six, seven, eight months
without even swinging a bat.”

JONATHAN NEWTON/THE WASHINGTON POST

STAYING LOOSE: With spring training in sight, Hamilton
and his wife, Katie, relax at a restaurant.in Sarasota, Fla.

“My first drink — my first p

‘YOU DIE OR GET WELL’

His days were filled with
booze and cocaine, his nights
with more of the same.

Late one night in Septem-
ber 2003, for reasons he still
doesn’t understand, Hamilton
found himself on the doorstep

- of Michael Dean Chadwick, a

Raleigh homebuilder who

’ spoke to Christian groups

about his successful battle
against drug addiction. Hamil-
ton had once briefly dated
Chadwick’s daughter, Katie.

“J took one look at him, and
I knew exactly what I was
looking at,” Chadwick says.

They talked for hours.

“I told him: ‘There is no
middle ground. You either die
or get well,’ ” Chadwick says.

Hamilton started dating
Katie again, and started trying
to beat addiction. He married
Katie in November 2004. At:
the time, he was clean.

“I thought [his drug prob-
lem] was over,” Katie says. “I
thought when he said, ‘It’s
over,’ that meant it’s over.

“But when he had his first
relapse, I knew it was going to
be a long road.”

Josh and Katie collected
what was lett of the $3.96 mil-
lion signing bonus, about
$200,000, and bought a house.
And then Josh squandered the
rest of the money on drugs.

“J went through about
$70,000 in a month-and-a-
half,” he says.

Within six months of being
married, Josh and Katie were
separated. And when Katie
brought Sierra home from the
hospital in September 2005,
Josh was out getting high.

“That was the worst of the

‘worst,” Katie says. “Bringing

your baby home is supposed
to be such a joyous time, and it
wasn’t that way.

“Just to know he was out
using drugs and missing those
precious moments ... I was
devastated.”

One day, Hamilton wrote a
check to a crack dealer. When

uction from former minor-league coach Roy Silver.

the check bounced and Josh
started to feel the heat, Chad-
wick stepped in.

“J called to tell the guy

. Iwas coming,” Chadwick says.

“He said, ‘Are you going to be
packing heat?’ I said, ‘Do I
need to?’ When I got there, I
told him: ‘Look, I understand,
business is business. Here’s

-your money. But if you ever

sell Josh crack again, I'll be
back here, and it won’t be
pretty. I'm not scared or intim-
idated by you or your pals.
And I’m just a little bit crazy.’
“There is no question that
on multiple occasions Josh
banged on the Devil’s door.
And why it never got opened
— well, J think God spared his

. life, because He had some-

thing in store for him.”

BACK TO THE FUTURE

Last June, Major League
Baseball reinstated Hamilton
after more than three years of
suspensions. Letters on Hamil-
ton’s behalf from the Devil
Rays and Chadwick helped
convince the league even
though he had been clean only

eight months, four months

short 6f the mandatory period.
“The amazing thing to me
is, the night before the dratt,
[Reds GM] Wayne Krivsky
asked me what I thought about
Josh Hamilton,” said Reds
manager Jerry Narron, a North »
Carolina native who has
known Hamilton for years.
“He said, ‘We're thinking
about drafting him.’ My jaw
just dropped. I was so excited
about it, knowing his history
and knowing him personally.
“It just killed me to see the
difficulties he had. But I want
to give him every chance in
the world to be successful and
get his life back on track.”
And the game is on again.
“I think Josh is going to do
unbelievable things in base-
ball,” Chadwick says.
“T think he’s going to
change lives across this coun-
try for many years to come.”

Stars on Wednesday night.

The Stars held a 1-0 lead
midway through the third

period behind rookie goalie

Mike Smith, who was trying

for his second shutout in three’

games. But Pavel Datsyuk tied
it at ] at 11:14 with his 18th goal
off a setup by Zetterberg.
Zetterberg gave the Red
Wings the lead at 15:24 with

his 27th goal on a shot from,

the high slot.

Mathieu Schneider added
an empty-netter with 33 sec-
onds left, assisted by Zetter-
berg, to ice the victory and
snap Dallas’ three-game win-
ning streak.

Yankees to deal with Rivera after ’07

From Miami Herald Wire Services

TAMPA, Fla. — Mariano Rivera
had this warning for the New York
Yankees: If he becomes a free agent,
he’ll consider offers from other
teams.

“Everybody has the same shot,” he

for at least several months with a
torn rotator cuff.

He will be added to the Orioles
roster today, at which time Baltimore
will make a corresponding move to
the 40-man roster. ’

e Indians: Free-agent Cliff Pol-

said on Wednesday. “The Yankees
will not have an advantage.”

Yankees general manager Brian
Cashman called the 37-year-old
closer Tuesday night, a day after
Rivera said he was hoping for a con-
tract extension. Cashman told Rivera
his preference is to push back the
matter until after the season.

“It’s very hard, despite how great
Mariano is, to all of a sudden pick and
choose who to start discussing con-
tracts with,” Cashman said. “If you
start picking and choosing one, some-
one else is sitting there saying, ‘Well,
why not me?”

Catcher Jorge Posada also is
entering the final season of his con-
tract, and third baseman Alex Rodri-—
guez can opt out of his deal after the
World Series. ‘

Rivera, the backbone of the Yan-
kees during their run of nine consec-
utive American League East titles,
will earn $10.5 million this year, the
final season of a three-year agree-
ment. When he was about to enter
the final season of his contract in
2004, the Yankees negotiated an
extension during spring training.

“The Yankees always knew that I
wanted to be with the Yankees and
finish my career with the Yankees,”
he said. “If they don’t. want to do
[anything] with me, I [won't] go
home crying. I’m going to move on.”

He doesn’t see himself playing in
another uniform.

“But if I have to, I have to do it,” he
said.

Rivera wants to pitch for the team
in the new Yankee Stadium in 2009
and said he wasn’t upset, with the
team’s decision. The right-hander
doesn’t want to discuss his contract
during the season.

Last fall, when Mike Mussina was
eligible for free agency, the Yankees
started talks with his agent soon after
their season ended and agreed to a
two-year, $23 million deal. It appears
likely that if Rivera has a season typi-
cal for him, New York will act on a
similar timetable.

“We are fine with that,” said Rive-
ra’s agent, Fernando Cuza.

Rivera was 5-5 with 34 saves and a
1.80 ERA last year, when he was side-

lined from Aug. 31 to Sept. 22 because
of a muscle strain near his right
elbow.

ELSEWHERE

e Red Sox: The club officially
added outfielder J.D. Drew to its
roster after left-handed pitcher
Lenny DiNardo was claimed on
waivers by the Oakland Athletics.

The team announced the $70 mil-
lion deal with Drew on Jan. 26, seven
weeks after a preliminary agreement
was reached. The deal had to be
reviewed by Major League Baseball

and the team needed an open slot on
its 40-man roster for Drew. 4

After the preliminary deal was
reached on Dec. 5, lawyers fashioned
an arrangement that would allow
Boston to opt out of the guaranteed
money for 2010 and 2011 if Drew’s
right shoulder injury recurs. The
shoulder was operated on in Septem-
ber 2005.

Drew, 31, became a free agent
when he opted out of the last three
years of his five-year, $55 million deal
with the Los Angeles Dodgers.

DiNardo, 27, was 1-2 with a 7.85

ERA with the Red Sox last season. He

pitched in 13 games, including six
sake, and was on the disabled list
with neck problems from May 24-
Aug. 31.

e Orioles: Free-agent right-
hander Steve Trachsel signed a one-
year, $3.1 million contract with the
club, filling a void in the starting rota-
tion left by Kris Benson’s injury.

Trachsel, 36, weat 15-8 with a 4.97
ERA with the New York Mets in
2006. He reached an agreement with
the Orioles on Monday, when the
team learned Benson would be lost

itte signed a minor-league contract
as the team added another experi-
enced right-hander to its revamped
bullpen. Politte appeared in 30 games
last season for the Chicago White

’ Sox. He went 2-2 with an 8.70 ERA,

but the 32-year-old had his season
shortened by right shoulder inflam-
mation and was released in July. He.
underwent surgery in August.

e Reds: Right-handed reliever
Kerry Ligtenberg agreed to a
minor-league deal with the Reds,
who will give him a chance to win a
spot in their bullpen.

The 35-year- -old hasn’t pitched in
the majors since 2005, when he
appeared in seven games for Arizona.
He had 18 saves and a 3.57 ERA in 53
appearances for the Cubs’ Triple-A
team in Iowa last year.

e Nationals: Former All-Star
Dmitri Young agreed to a minor-
league contract with the club, getting
another chance after the Detroit
Tigers cut him last year following
legal and substance problems.

Young was released in September,
and later that month he was sen-
tenced by a court in Michigan to a
year’s probation for assaulting his
former girlfriend. Last summer,
Young spent 30 days at a rehabilita-
tion center for depression and alco-
hol abuse.

Also, general manager Jim Bow-
den will meet with right-hander
Chad Cordero and his agent, Larry
Reynolds, today in an attempt to
avoid the closer’s arbitration hearing,
scheduled for Tuesday.

Cordero (29 saves in ’06, 47 in ’05)
asked for $4.15 million. The Nationals
offered $3.65 million. He made
$525,000 in 2006.

e Rangers: Infielder Desi Rela-
ford agreed to a minor-league con-
tract with the club that includes an
invitation to spring training.

The Rangers also invited minor-
league right-hander Jose Vargas to
major league camp. Vargas spent the
past two seasons in the Mexican
Leagie.

e Phillies: Right-hander Geoff
Geary agreed late Tuesday to a one-
year contract worth $837,500, avoid-
ing arbitration.

Murray,
Safin win
openers at
Sail Jose

@ TENNIS
SAN JOSE, California
Associated Press

© ANDY MURRAY
began his dramatic rise in -
the rankings with his first
career victory at last

year’s SAP Open. Now
he’s hoping to use the
event to begin a climb into
the top 10.

The third-seeded Mur-
ray opened defense of his
lone career title Tuesday
night with a 6-3, 6-1 victo-
ry over Kevin Kim in his
100th career match.

“Right now we’re think-
ing how to get into single
digits in the rankings,”
Murray’s coach Brad
Gilbert said. “All I know
is Andy is getting better.”

Murray worked on his
serve, including a fitness
program designed to
strengthen his upper body,
through the offseason and
managed a career best 145
mph serve against Kim
and recorded 11.aces.

“It went pretty well,”
said Murray, currently at a
career best No. 13. “My
tennis has gotten better
and I feel more confident
all around. I managed to
get into a rhythm pretty
quickly. I definitely feel a
lot stronger.”

Fourth-seeded Marat
Safin also advanced to the
second round with a 6-4,
7-6 (3) victory over wild
card Scott Oudsema. Safin
used a dink, his forehand
and a backhand cross
court shot in the tiebreak-
er to set up an ace for the
victory. el :

“There wete some
tough conditions,” said
Safin, who helped Russia
beat host Chile in Davis
Cup competition on Sun-
day. “It takes a little bit of
energy to pack your bags ©
after winning Davis Cup
and flying 15 hours. I was
only able to hit on the
court today. Sometimes
you have to do things you
don’t like.” |

Oudsema, who has yet
to reach a singles final at
any level, held his own’
against the former top-
tanked player. When he
got his first serve in, he
won 91 percent ofthe —
points, including 17 aces.
However, Oudsema only’
got 40 percent of his first
serves in.

“His shots have a lot of
power and depth to
them,” said Oudsema,
who lost in the first round
of his last two Challenger
tournaments. “His level of
play, right now, is higher

- than mine. I was working
uphill.”
_ Safin, who has two
Grand Slams among his 15
career titles, made his
debut at the event. The _
closest he’s: been to the
San Francisco Bay Area
‘Was a trip to Yosemite
National Park, near the
Nevada border.

“I wanted to change my

results,” he said. “I played
-in Europe the last eight |
years after Australia and
every time I was out by
the second round. I decid-
ed to come here and try
my luck. I’m in the second
round so maybe I can do
better than in Europe.”

Safin has not won a
tournament since. the 2005

‘Australian Open. He’s
been bothered by a left
knee injury the past two
years.

“It took me a year to
really recover and play the
kind of tennis Ll wanted,”
he said.

Eighth-seeded Vince
Spadea also advanced to

. the second round with 6-3,
6-4 victory over Danai
Udomchoke of Thailand.

-Spadea, a four-time
quarterfinalist in this
event, had eight aces and
broke Danai six times.

Bjorn Phau of Germany,
a quarterfinalist last year,
rolled past Konstantinos
Economidis of Greece,
who lost his 24th career
ATP match, 6-2, 6-3 in 56
minutes,

Seventh-seeded Lee
Hyung-taik won his first
ATL match since October
in putting away American
qualifier Phillip King 7-6 .
(4), 6-3.

' SHAUN POLLOCK took

Africa against Pakistan in
the fifth one-day cricket
international on Wednesday,
sealing a 3-1 series victory.

Pakistan was dismissed for

Jacques Kallis and A.B. de

to propel South Africa to its
target in just 29 overs.

"There is a very good feel-
ing in the dressing room

Graeme Smith said. "The



confidence is very high
because the guys have
worked very hard. But we're
being careful to keep our
feet on the ground."

Tim Howard to move

permanent deal from
Manchester United

mSOCCER
LIVERPOOL, England
Associated Press

AMERICAN goalkeeper Tim
Howard (pictured) will end his associ-
ation with Manchester United and
move to Everton permanently after

_the season.

Howard, who has been on loan to
Everton since losing the starting job
at United to Edwin van der Sar, will
sign a five year contract that will keep
him with the team until 2012.

“I was. drawn to the club for a num-
ber of reasons and the players in the

dressing room are one of them,” said .

Howard, who has played 27 games for
Everton with 11 shutouts.
_“We are delighted to have signed

_Tim on a permanent basis,” Everton

manager David Moyes said. “He has
come in this season and proved he is a
good keeper and we are pleased to
have secured him.”

After moving from the MetroStars in
Major League Soccer in July 2003,
Howard played 77 games for United.
But he lost job to Van der Sar last sea-
son and only played six games —
including just once in the Premier
League.

Howard was on the United States
team for the 2006 World Cup but did-
n’t play. He has made 16 appearances

‘for the U.S., most recently in last

week’s 2-0 victory over Mexico.

with the total on 1.

"We had poor discipline
out there, and our main
problem is not getting runs
on the board," Pakistan cap-
tain Inzamam-ul-Hagq said.

Pakistan scored only 107
on Sunday and lost by 10
wickets, with Pollock taking
2-13 in 10 overs.

Pollock was named man of
the series on Wednesday fol-
lowing his second straight

man-of-the-match award. He
took the first five Pakistan
wickets, bowling unchanged
for his full 10-over spell.
"Shaun led us very well
throughout the series with
the ball," Smith said.
Pakistan, attempting to tie
the series at .2-2, won the

toss and elected to bat at

Wanderers Stadium. How-
ever, Pollock struck in his
first over with Mohammad
Hafeez edging a catch to
Mark Boucher before a run
was scored.

Imran Nazir tried to hit
back and top-edged an
attempted pull for Pollock
to take a return catch and
dismiss him for 22 at 30-2.

Younis Khan then dragged



a delivery onto his stumps.:

THE TRIBUNE



Gibson and
Christie steer
clear of House
of Assembly

@ By PAUL TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter

PRIME Minister Perry
Christie and Immigration Min-
ister Shane Gibson both failed
to show:up to yesterday’s seat-
ing of the House of Assembly.

International and local press
were camped out in Rawson
Square yesterday to catch a
glimpse of the embattled minis-
ter who is featured in hundreds
of online and print headlines
around the world for his close
relationship with the late Anna
Nicole Smith.

Local reporters in particular
were seeking to get some clari-
fication from the prime minister
as to Mr Gibson’s political
future as some political factions
have called for his immediate
resignation.

However, both men were
nowhere to be seen throughout
both the morning and evening
sessions of the House.

Mr Gibson was photographed
several times posing with the
B-list celebrity, whose perma-
nent residency fast tracking
raised alarm in the Bahamas
last year, with critics noting that
many more worthy applicants
had been in waiting for years.

However, Mr Gibson defend-
ed the swift granting of Anna
Nicole’s permanent residency
by claiming that it only a testa-
ment to the new and improved
culture of efficiency at the Min-
istry of Immigration.

Since then, his entire family
has been thrust into the lime
light. Mr Gibson admitted that
his father “King Eric” had pilot-
ed Ms Smith’s yacht from Flori-
da to the Bahamas; his mother
was baby-sitting Anna Nicole’s
new born daughter Daniel Lynn
Hope Stern; and his wife
Jacqueline personally “minis-
tered” to Anna Nicole herself.

While there are some
Bahamians who adamantly
defend Mr Gibson’s choice to
allow his entire family to
become involved with Anna
Nicolé, there are others —
including the Bahamas Democ-
ratic Movement (BDM), the
Free National Movement
(FNM), and the Workers’ Party
— who remain critical of the
minister’s actions.

Others, especially commen-
tators in the international press,
find the fact that Mr Gibson still
remains in office not only laugh-
able, but a situation that could
only come about in the
Bahamas.

One US correspondent said:

“If this were the United States,
he would have been long-gone.”

Kerzner wins
praise for
promoting
‘sport for all’

KERZNER International
was recognised by. with
Bahamas Olympic Association
for its work in promoting and
assisting in the development of
“sport for all” in the Bahamas.

At Kerzner’s Community
Service Awards on Tuesday, the

company was the recipient of .

the BOA International Olympic
Committee’s (IOC) sport and
the community trophy for 2006.

The BOA noted that Kerzner
has sponsored the Annual
Olympic Day Run since its
inception 20 years ago.

The association said the IOC
was particularly impressed with
the long list of charitable com-
munity donations and the com-
mitment of the company to
sport and the community which
made them the overwhelming
choice for this trophy.

Presenting the award was Sir.

Arlington Butler, president of
the BOA.

“Tt is an important award and
it is done for those companies
or individuals who have done a
lot in their community. On
recognising how many persons
have received awards here this
morning one knows that the
whole community virtually is
covered by the generosity of
Kerzner,” said Sir Arlington.

He thanked Kerzner Inter-
national’s senior vice president
of administration, J Barrie Far-
rington, for his continued assis-
tance over the years.

Nicole Smith’s



HOWARD K STERN has
no rights to custody of Anna
s baby daughter
under Bahamian law, it was
claimed yesterday.

Fathers of children born out
of wedlock have no status ina
child’s life, said fathers’ rights
campaigner Clever Duncombe.

The only person with any
claim to custody of five-
month-old Dannie Lynn Hope
is Anna Nicole’s mother, Vir-
gie Arthur, he said.

“She is the closest blood rel-
ative and she is the one to
whom the child should go
under Bahamian law,” said Mr
Duncombe.

His comments came as the
international furore over the
baby’s paternity raged on and
an injunction was being sought
in Nassau to keep the baby in

Es the Bahamas.

Mr ‘Duncombe is well-

versed in laws relating to cus-
tody and access because of his
work through his fathers
rights organisation.

He said Bahamian law was
framed to deal with “serial
sweethearting” and gave bio-
logical or even “paper” fathers
no rights whatsoever.

“There is no doubt that the
maternal grandmother has
rights to the child under our
law. The father in the
Bahamas is always used as a
last resort.”

His views ran counter to
those. of attorney Wayne
Munroe, who told The Tri-
bune that the baby was in the
custody of its “legal” father.

Mr Duncombe said: “We
are one of the few countries
in the world where you don’t
have to establish paternity. All
you have to do is sign a piece
of paper.’ FoF ae

But he said fathers — bio-
logical or not — had no rights
if a child was born out of wed-
lock.

Ms Arthur, the estranged
mother of the late cover girl, is
in Nassau fighting to take the
child away from Mr Stern,
who she has accused of con-
trolling Ms Smith’s life.

Meanwhile, Mr Stern came
under fire on American tele-
vision from Judge Judy
Sheindlin, who said it was “an
absolute disgrace” that he
should not submit the baby for
DNA testing.

Judge Judy said the baby’s
welfare was paramount and
that it had a right to know who
its father was.

She agreed with CNN’s Lar-
ry King that Mr Stern’s expla-
nation — that he was comply-
ing with Anna Nicole’s wishes
— was weak and unconvincing.

Popularity of Gibson ‘a
myth’, claims opponent

SHANE GIBSON’s alleged
popularity in his Golden Gates
constituency is a “total myth”,
according to one of his elec-

. tion challenger S.

In fact, the general election
will be‘ ‘judgment day” for
the immigration minister, with
ordinary people turning their
backs on a man “with clear
double standards,” he said. ~

The claims came from
Clever Duncombe, who plans
to run as an independent
against Mr Gibson at the next
election.

He said Mr Gibson’s role in
the Anna Nicole Smith affair
had proved to his constituents
that he has two sets of values -
one for the rich and one for
the poor. .

He alleged that Mr Gibson

wealth,” Mr

had refused to help two Sea
Hauler victims in his con-
stituency, yet had professed to
show “Christian care” for Ms
Smith and her baby.

“This man came into poli-
tics seeking power and
Duncombe
claimed, “but Golden Gates
has a chance to go down as
one of the movers and shakers
in the election.

*They will have the chance
to get rid of this type of per-
son. They will decide whether
we really want this kind of rep-
resentation anymore, or
whether the country should
move away from it.”

Mr Duncombe said it was a
“total myth” to describe Mr
Gibson as popular in his con-
stituency. In fact, people there

had already decided he was a
“selfish man” who had neglect-
ed his district and refused to
help the Sea Hauler victims,
Mr Duncombe claimed.

“T understand that Mr Gib-
son was away in Florida with
Anna Nicole Smith and
Howard K Stern when they
were buying their boat,” said
Mr Duncombe. .

“T have heard he left Florida
after her death and flew back
to Nassau on Friday morning.
lf he was on that trip, he
should resign immediately.”

It was Mr Duncombe’s

opinion that this was “one of

the biggest scandals in the
Bahamas since the Harry
Oakes affair. I am stunned
that the prime minister is
allowing this to go on.”

when a male police officer brutally assaulted her in 2005.
“He gave me a hard blow. He brutally slapped me,” she said. A doctor's
report, indicted that Mrs Newton had received a soft tissue injury to the left

side of her face.

The incident resulted from Mrs Newton’s arrest on a charge of obstruction.
Mrs Newton pointed out that that case was dismissed last year after the
officer failed to appear in court. She furnished The Tribune with copies of let-
ters from the police promising to follow up on her complaint and from the hos-
pital confirming the injury. She claimed that while in police custody on the alle-
gation of obstruction, she was slapped in the face by the arresting officer.

Mrs Newton said that she filed a complaint against that officer at the
Complaints and Corruption Unit. She produced a copy of a letter from that

unit dated August 25, 2005 which acknowledged that the matter is being inves-_

tigated.

She claims, however, that now more than a year later she has yet to
receive any response on the outcome of that particular investigation. Mrs New-
ton says she plans to take legal action against the officer who assaulted her.
However, she still wants to see him face disciplinary action.

“T want him to be brought up on disciplinary charges. I want them to know
that I am not going anywhere, I’m still here. I am up to my neck in medical
bills,” she told The Tribune. Moreover she claims that about two months ago
the officer in question sent a message to her through a family member say-
ing that she would not get anywhere with what she was trying to do.

Yesterday The Tribune tried to get a response on the matter from Super-
intendent Franklyn Dames who is in charge of the Complaints and Corrup-
tion Unit, but up to press time yesterday, he had not returned the call.

The test of true love

m@ By REVEREND ANGELA
PALACIOUS



Now that St Valentine’s Day is over
let us see how strong our love really is
for each other after the cards, choco-
lates, baskets, flowers and other gifts
have been enjoyed. More important
than the store-bought gift is heart-felt
devotion.

Let us all see how well we know the
people whom we love (including every-
one in our households) by considering
their answers to the following ques-
tions and the likelihood of our
responding correctly:

What is each person’s favourite
colour, movie, song, hymn, travel des-
tination, place to eat, television pro-
gramme or any other personal prefer-
ences that may aid in your under-
standing and appreciation? Have you
shared your choices recently? Discus-
sion and dialogue in a relaxed non-
judgmental atmosphere build a sense
of the family as a special form of com-
munity.

There are some other gifts that we
can give to each other every day for the

- rest of the year:



@ REV ANGELA PALACIOUS

¢ Honesty: A truthful approach to
communication with a lot of love mixed
in as well

MEDITATION

¢ Fidelity: The trustworthy security
of exclusive contact

e Integrity: The blessing of right
actions and choices for the right rea-
sons

e Charity: Gracious kindness and
consideration

Responsibility: Fair distribution of
labour and conscientious execution
without reminders

¢ Reliability: A dependable
approach to being a person of one’s
word

e Courtesy: The ability to be polite
and well-mannered especially at home

e Sincerity: A real appreciation for
the efforts of others without flattery
or sarcasm

e Harmony: Making every attempt to
be at peace with all persons while being
honest

e Unity: The desire to be loyal to
the family and to promote the joy of
togetherness

Forgiveness when offended, apolo-



gies when wrong, reconciliation when
divided, restitution when wrongs need
to be made right, humour instead of
always taking offence, and spoken
words of praise and encouragement
are just a few more of the further tests
of true love. Such love is only possible

when the power of the Holy Spirit is

free to change us on the inside from
selfish, self-centred, egotistical, narcis-
sistic individuals to Christ-centred, sac-
rificing, unselfish, compassionate mem-
bers of God’s family.

These gifts are not easily acquired
and require much self-discipline, prayer
and reflection on the need for person-
al change. Your spiritual maturing is
the best present to offer the persons
you say that you love. The Cross is the
most powerful symbol we have of love,
and so it is fitting that Ash Wednesday
and Lent follow so closely after St
Valentine’s Day. What greater love is
there than the laying down of one’s life
for another, in death as Jesus did, and
in life as he discipled his followers.

When our Lord returns may all have
been found to have studied hard,
prayed long, and passed the test of true
love.

- ‘Suffering and smiling’ —

m@ By CLEMENT JOHNSON

THE other day someone was telling me the story of
how a preacher began his sermon on the rich man in the
gospel Luke, by asking for a show of hands from all in
the congregation who would love to be poor, starving,
weeping and hated by everybody. No hands went up.

Then he asked those in the congregation who, on
the contrary, would love to be rich, well fed, laughing
and well spoken of in the community. All hands went up.
A similar survey in any church in the Bahamas would

probably yield similar results.

The gospel of last week, in Luke, has Jesus declaring
a blessing on those who are poor, hungry, weeping and
hated. To make sure we get the point, he goes on and
explicitly pronounces a woe on those who are rich, well
fed, laughing and well spoken of. What is going on
here? Does Luke want us to understand that material
poverty in itself is a sign of divine approval and material
prosperity a sign of divine disapproval? Certainly not!

Poverty in and of itself is not a blessing but a misfor-
tune, a lack. In fact, all the qualifying factors men-

tioned in Luke's Beatitudes - poverty, hunger, weeping,
hatred, exclusion, reviling, defamation - are all misfor-

Man.” What Luke is saying is this, those who accept
these evil conditions as the price that they have to pay
for following Christ, they are the blessed ones. Some
knowledge of the social background of Luke’s gospel

would help us here.

owned by family, rejected

the synagogue. One imme
inheritance, free association and commerce in the com-
munity. Even if one was a very rich person with lots of 23)
land and farms, the moment they declared their faith in -
Christ, they were automatically dispossessed and
reduced to a state of stark poverty. Now you know why
hem would go and sell their

lands first!

In order for us to understand what Luke is saying we
must recognize that Luke wrote his gospel at a time of
terrible social and religious persecution of believers in
Christ. It was so severe that anyone professing to be a
Christian knew for sure that he or she would be dis-
by friends and excluded from
diately lost one’s right of

some smart ones among t

In the passage immediately preceding today’s gospel,
Luke describes the call of the twelve apostles (Luke.
6:12-16). From a large group of followers who were
coming and going, still trying to decide one way or the
other, Jesus publicly calls out these twelve as his regu-

these men would literally have tears in their eyes as
they went up to join Jesus as full-time associates. So
Jesus looks at these tearful, stranded twelve young men
before him, willing but still not so sure they are taking

the right step. He looks at them and he says to them:

for you will be

. Blessed are you who are poor [now], for yours is the
kingdom of God. Blessed are you who are hungry now,
filled. Blessed are you who weep now, for
you will laugh. Blessed are you when people hate you,
and when they exclude you, revile you, and defame you
on account of the Son of Man. Rejoice in that day and |
leap for joy, for surely your reward is great in heaven; for
that is what their ancestors did to the prophets (Luke 6:20-

After that you can imagine the newly recruited apos-
tles smiling through their tears. Suffering, yes, but smil-
ing, because they now understand they have indeed
‘made the right choice. .

The woes, on the other hand, would refer to those

:

who declined the invitation to follow Jesus (like the
rich young man) because they were not ready to give up
their prestige in the community, lose their circle of
\ friends, not to talk of all the wealth they had spent all
their lives accumulating. They have come to attach:

tunes, These are things no good parents would want for
their children. Neither would God want these things for
us, His children. How are we then to understand Luke’s
Beatitudes?

The key to Luke's Beatitudes is to be found in an
important clause which he adds at the end of the last
Beatitude, and the clause is “on account of the Son of

lar associates.

Given the situation we have just described, how
would you feel if you were called to be one of them?
You knew that as soon as you answered yes to the call

of Jesus, you would lose all your possessions and enti-

~ tlements in the community, instantly joining the club of

the poor, the hated, the reviled, the excluded. Some of

great importance to the good things of this life, so much
so that wealth has become like a god to them.

In many ways they are like the men and women of
this present age of materialism and consumerism. Jesus
says they have made the wrong choice because the path
of putting worldly prosperity before God invariably
leads not to lasting happiness but to eternal tragedy.

hich way is up?

m@ By PASTOR MATTHEW
ALLEN

There is a way which
seemeth right unto a man, but
the end thereof are the ways of
death.

— Proverbs14:12

here is a way: The
word Way in the
Hebrew is: derek,

deh'-rek; which has several
meanings: (1) a course of life
or mode of action, (2) a cus-
tom or culture, (3) a pathway.

As God brought the chil-
dren of Israel out of Egypt,
_ He warned them not to adopt
or partake in the custom and
culture of the heathen nations
they would encounter. The
leaders of the Bahamas have
willingly done exactly what
God has warned the nation of
Israel not to do.

Due to the passion and
desire of culture whether good
or evil, these educated foolish
leaders of our so called Chris-
tian nation have opened the
door of this country to many
foreign spirits and culture.
One in particular, the spirit of
Junkanoo; this deceptive, sub-
tle spirit has its roots embed-
ded so strong in the mind-set
of the Bahamian society in
that, it would be considered
crazy and foolish for someone
speak out against it.

From the highest office in
this country, the Prime Minis-

ter’s office, this spirit has been
given the red carpet, free
course to rule and rain. An
entire ministry has been estab-
lished for this spirit, the Min-
istry of Cultural Affairs, an
Altar or high place of Baal. It
is quite obvious that the polit-
ical leaders of this country
don’t know the way or path
that the country should take.
Therefore the pathway they
choose is always leading to
death in one form or another;
morally, naturally and spiritu-
ally our young people are
dying daily.

It’s even worse when the
church leaders themselves
don’t know the way whereby
they can give Godly wisdom
and counsel to the governing
authorities. The church, yes,
even the church, has been
swept away by this spirit, in
that as the various churches
go out to partake in the
Junkanoo rituals - as they play
their religious songs and dance
before the judges to win the
prizes of men.

Ignorantly, in some of their
hearts and minds, they believe
that they are doing God a
favour in what they’ve called
advancing the kingdom of
God through Junkanoo. Just
as the apostle Paul spoke to
the brethren of the churches in
Galatia - Galatians 3:1 - O
foolish Galatians, who hath
bewitched you, that ye should

not obey the truth, before



@ PASTOR ALLEN

whose eyes Jesus Christ hath
been evidently set forth, cruci-
fied among you?

So do I speak to the church-
es of the Bahamas, “O fool-
ish Bahamians” who hath
bewitched you, that you
should be ensnared by the
spirit of Junkanoo? My ques-
tion to the church-kanoo’s is
this; have you received the
Holy Spirit since you
believed?

I am amazed and sorely dis-
appointed with the spiritually
blind, incompetent level of
leadership we’ve got through-
out this nation. This disap-
pointment extends straight
across the board, governmen-

tal, civic and most of all reli- |

gious, from the top to the bot-
tom.

Here’s another point to con-
sider as a result of being igno-
rant of the enemy’s devices.
Watch this! The two dominant
political parties in this country
for the last 25-30years, the
PLP and FNM, have proven,
as they both have governed
from time to time, that the
ultimate well being of the
Bahamian people at large is
of no genuine concern and pri-
ority of theirs.

The greatest danger with
this is that they’ve done such a
good job in swinging the peo-
ple of today for their continu-
al support, even after these
political pimps, with their elo-
quent speeches and futile
promises, consistently fail to
deliver a better, secure,
Bahamas. One or two things
must be considered here: (1) is
it that these political pimps are
just that good in pimping the
people or (2) is it that the
majority of the Bahamian peo-
ple are just that (dunce, dumb,
stupid, etc).

For years the political cry of
this nation has been the
stronghold of the UBP and the
oppression of the black
Bahamians. The governing
and former governing politi-
cal party seems not to know
who’s responsible for today’s
deteriorating state of affairs
and well being of this country.
Why don’t we do this! Let’s

also blame today’s high crime
rate, price gouging, failing
judicial and educational sys-
tems, corruption and dishon-
esty on the UBP as well.

It’s so sad to know and see
that the many diehard, stuck-
in-the-mud supporters of the
two major political parties of
this country are only thinking
of and for themselves right
here and now. The children’s
children of these diehard sup-
porters will forever be
enslaved as their parents
allowed their country, their
heritage to be sold by the
political pimps whom they so
believed in.

Then there are those silent,
wicked, twisted, powerless reli-
gious leaders who can’t speak
up and out on behalf of the
people, because of their polit-
ical affiliation; God sees you,
you double agents; who are
always talking about God yet
work for the devil.

Southern Baptist evangelism leader: ‘I
am heartbroken by what I am seeing’

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) —A
leader in Southern Baptist evangelism
says he’s “heartbroken” over feuding
within the denomination over tineology
and worship styles and says it’s distract-
ing from the critical work of religious
outreach.

Bill Curtis, chairman of trustees for
the North American Mission Board,
said the disagreements are intensifying
as baptisms in Southern Baptist church-

es are at their lowest level in 12 years
and 73 per cent of member churches
are either not growing or declining.

Declining

“I am heartbroken by what I am see-
ing,” Curtis wrote in the
February/March issue of the Southern
Baptist journal. “The ultimate result of

_this behaviour will not be greater

denominational purity — it will be
missed evangelistic opportunity.”

The 16.3 million-amember conserva-
tive denomination, which believes the
Bible is the inerrant word of God, has
seen internal conflicts increasing in
recent years over whether Southern
Baptists can speak in tongues during
worship and other issues.

Curtis, pastor of Cornerstone Baptist
Church in Florence, S.C., said the debate

has been filled with “harmful and
destructive rhetoric” that has resulted in
litmus tests for church leaders. Curtis
said Southern Baptists should instead
be finding ways to work together.
“Cooperating together despite our
differences has been an integral part of
our Southern Baptist heritage,” Curtis
wrote. “Perhaps it is time for a new gen-
eration of Southern Baptists to work
together for the sake of the Gospel.”

Mission and Ministry

@ By FATHER JAMES
MOULTRIE

“Blessed are the poor in spir-
it; the Kingdom of Heaven ts
theirs”

— (Luke 6:20)

t the heart of today’s
reading is the theme
we have been fol-

lowing in this series on Mis-
sion and Ministry, and that is
trust in God and service to
Him. The first reading from
Jeremiah contrasts the fate of
those who trust in human
beings with the fate of those
who trust in God.

Those who trust in human
beings are like a barren shrub;
whereas those who trust in
God are like a fruitful tree
planted beside a flowing river.
To trust in God is to rely on
God as the source of life and
action. Those who trust in
God are the poor, whom Jesus
declares blessed in the Beati-
tudes. We have to get this
straight before we embark on

ES
PART THREE



Mission and Ministry, for it is
only when we rely on God that
we can accomplish His will for
us and bring others to Him.

When Jesus says, “Blessed
are the poor in spirit”, He is
not giving a blessing to pover-
ty, starvation, and misery. They
are evil. What is being blessed
is reliance on God. Those who
put their trust in human beings
will be disappointed; those
who put their trust in God will
not. Only God can fill our
emptiness; only God can sat-
isfy the hunger of our hearts.
But too often God is the last
one we turn to rather than the
first.

If we are going to be suc-
cessful in our Mission and
Ministry thrust, we must trust
in God. James 2:1-5 says that it
is those who are the poor
according to this world that
God makes rich in faith. The
rich tend to rely on their rich-



mw FATHER JAMES
MOULTR'=

es. For them it is this world
that matters. God for them is
more or less redundant, and
the other world remote and
hazy.

The poor, on the other hand,
tend to turn to God instinc-
tively. For them the very haz-
ards and difficulties of life
make God and the other
world close and real. It is not
that poverty in itself is a good

thing. But it’s a fact that as life
becomes harder and more
threatening, it also becomes
richer, because the fewer
expectations we have, the
more the good things of life
become unexpected gifts that
we accept with gratitude. That
is why Jesus says, “Blessed are
the poor in spirit; the King-
dom of Heaven is theirs”.
When we go in Mission and
Ministry we will encounter all
kinds of people, the poor and
the wealthy. While God calls
us to reach out to all, our min-
istry is especially to the poor in
spirit, the ones who need us
the most. These are the ones
to whom Jesus devoted much
of His earthly ministry. He
would always be with the poor
and the marginalized, those
whom society rejects. These
were the ones who tugged
most at His divine heart. And
He always responded to them
with love and compassion.
And that is what he calls us to
do for them when we go out in
His service in mission and

ministry.

Here is a touching story to
guide you in your ministry.

One day a poor man was
walking along a street when he
came upon a beggar who asked
him for alms. Ashamed, the
man answered, “Sorry, but I
am just as poor as you are”.
On hearing this, the beggar
said, “Thank you, my friend,
for your gift”.

Not understanding what the
beggar meant, the man asked,
“Why are you thanking me? I
didn’t give you anything”. “Oh,
yes, you did”, the beggar
replied. “You gave me your
honesty, your poverty, and your
trust”.

God is not poor, but we are.
Even so, there is something
we can give God. We can give
Him our honesty, our poverty,
and our trust. And we can give
Him our service. We can go
out from this church in Mis-
sion and Ministry so that oth-
ers will know the God we
know, love, and serve. Will you
help God do that?

Keep growing and learning about leadership, toastmasters told

REVEREND Dr James Moultrie, rector of St
Matthews Anglican Church, the country's oldest
church, was the guest speaker at Toastmasters Club
7178 recently.

Father Moultrie; a distinguished gentleman with a

career of service in government, education and the
ministry, spoke on the topic of leadership. He gave
the toastmasters and guests much food for thought as

- all in attendance listened attentively. The rector
spoke about some of the characteristics that makes
one a good leader including: character, charisma,
commitment, credibility, competence, courage, dis-
cernment, focus, heart, initiative, passion and much
more.

"The only way to become the kind of leader that
people want to follow is to keep growing and learn-
ing about leadership. Keep searching until you find
it!" He said.

Under the presidency of TM Suncher Johnson,
the club's theme for the year 2006-2007 is "Excellence
Driven...Purpose Bound". Toastmasters is a non
profit organisation that teaches persons how to
enhance their leadership and communication skills.

¢ Club 7178 meets on Tuesdays at 6pm at the Can-
cer Society of the Bahamas, Third Terrace, Centreville,
two buildings south of ZNS. Meetings are open to
the public. The club will host a special "Valentine
Showcase" on Tuesday, February 13 and extends a
warm invitation to all. For more info e-mail: vpmem-

This is sad for two reasons,
the images they emulate for

Who are you seeking to be

your pastor, your best friend,
the lady in the office, or even
your neighbour? Whose
nature are you wearing today?

Are you allowing the Word

that it does not matter, as I
long as I go to church and pay
my tithes, God will under-

stand?

My friend, God is seeking
His Son in you today. Surren-
der yourself fully to Him and
pray that He cleans your tem-
ple so that you can be filled
with the nature of the Christ,
until the Christ is perfectly
formed in you. In this way you
will love unconditionally as he
loved while He walked the
earth. You will fully obey as
He obeyed. You will serve all
as He served all. You will give
as He gave. You will touch
lives as He touched lives. You
will walk in total submission
to the Father as He did. You
will walk in dominion, power
and authority as He did.

These things cannot and do
not come through your flesh
for you know the flesh, it is
rebellious, disobedient,
haughty, proud, arrogant, self-
ish, lustful, envious, greedy,
ungrateful and the list goes on
and on and on.

These attributes that are
found only in the Christ can
and will come through a vessel

earing?

that is fully yielded and sur-
rendered to the Almighty
God. Don’t for one minute
believe that this is not possible.
It is, God made it possible
through the Christ. We can-
not attain these by ourselves,
but must yield and let the Holy
Spirit complete the work in us.

As it is in the natural, we
rejoice and are proud when
told that our children look
like, sound like and act like
us. How much more does our
Heavenly Father seek to hear
the same about His children.
As we are disappointed when
our children are mean and
unkind to each other, so is He
when we do not love, serve,
help, encourage or support
each other.

It is not too late. Seek the
image of the Christ through
the Word of God, through
staying in His presence and
through prayer and fasting.
The Father loves you dearly
and deeply. He is looking for
His Son in you, in this way
your communion and fellow-
ship will be beyond anything
you can ever image. :

Parma who is the new bishop’s aunt, said
the ceremony moved her. “Liz won't look
at it as sn historic moment, but to me it’s
very historic,” she said. “Pm overjoyed
when women can break through that
stained-glass ceiling.”

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The
high court of the United Methodist
Church is holding its first meeting out-
side the United States in acknowledg-
ment of the denomination's worldwide
growth.

The Judicial Council is set to meet
April 25-28 in Manila, Philippines.

In 2000, an attorney from Cabanat-
uan City, Philippines, Rodolfo Beltran,
was elected to the panel, the first per-
son outside the United States to serve
on the court.

He invited the other members to
hold a meeting in his home country.
At the meeting, the council will recon-
sider its decision from last year on the
number of delegates that the Methodist
Church of the Ivory Coast can send to
the 2008 General Conference. That
assembly is the top policy making body
for the church.

The United Methodist Church claims
more than 8.2 million members in the
United States and about Il million
total worldwide.

“anniversary of death

ANKARA; Turkey (AP) — The head of
Italy’s bishops expressed hope for dialogue
and peace between faiths and for religious
freedom at a memorial Mass for a Roman
Catholic priest slain in Turkey a year ago.

The Rev. Andrea Santoro was shot dead
February 5. 2006, as he knelt in prayer in his
church in the Black Sea port city of Trabzon.
The killing happened at a time of widespread
anger in tne Islamic world over the publication
of caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad.

A lo-vearold is serving an 1S-vear prison

be linked io the outrage Over publication of the
caricatures In European newspapers

“We are here to contribute to peace hetween

between religions is possible.” Cardina Camil-

Santoros killing was one of many Tecent
attacks avainst Christians in this predomi-

priests were attacked last year in Turkey,
where Christians have often complained of
discrimination and persecution.

Of Turkey’s 70 million people. some 65,000
are Armenian Orthodox Christians, 20,000
are Roman Catholic, and 3,500 are Protes-
tant, mostly converts from Islam. Around
2.000 are Greek Orthodox and 23,000 are Jew-

BYU yanks professor's polygamy-explainer Web page

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Brigham
Young University officials have yanked
an assistant dean’s addition to the official
school Web site that sought to explain
polygamy in the Mormon church.

Jim Engebretsen’s Web page —
polygamy. byu.edu — came down Mon-
day shortly after it was posted when
officials said it violated university policy.

Engebretsen did not have approval
to post the “personal project” on the
schoo! site. said BYU spokeswoman

( Carrie Jenkins.

Engebretsen directs the master’s
degree of business administration pro-
gramme and serves as an assistant dean
for corporate relations and career place-
ment at BYU’s Marriott School of Man-
agement.

BYU is owned by the Church of Jesus
Christ of Latter-day Saints, which
denounced the practice of polygamy in
1890, The church provides historical
information about polygamy, or plural
marriage, on its Web site.

However, Engebretsen’s site was con-

sidered more candid about polygamy
than the church’s site, according to The
Salt Lake Tribune.

Engebretsen’s site posed questions
including “Did Joseph Smith marry

* young girls?” and “Did Joseph Smith

lie about practicing polygamy?” with
answers drawn from or linked to schol-
arly works at other Web sites.

“1 thought they had cleared more of
the information than they had.” Enge-
bretsen said. “We'll find anow ier frome

don’t want it to be associated with
BYU.”

Engebretsen said the site was
launched as part of an effort to provide
positive, accurate information about the
church on the Internet. The site is an
extension of the "More Good Founda-
tion” site that Engebretsen founded with
BYU professors Daniel Peterson and

God's Mercy.
Psalm 85:7-13

‘Show us vour mercy O Lord
and grant us you! salvation.
— V7

ave you ever done
anvthing for which
you really felt vou
deserved punishment and it uid
not come? Then you know
about God's mercy.
God's attitude towards us Is
one of mercy. God's metcy
expresses his love for us. This
love is seen in his deep feeling
that moves him to help us in
time of great need. No one has
a right to mercy. Mercy is con
descending love. reaching out
to meet a need without consid-
ering the merit of the person
who receives the aid. God
stoops to help the undeserving.
Grace declares that God 1s
merciful and loving and that he
is able to act to our deepest
need. God's attitude towards us
is one of acceptance and love.
The Psalm tells that we can find
a freedom to “approach the

_ throne of grace with confidence

so that we may receive mercy
and grace to help us in time of
need”. Hebrews 4:16

It is man’s own folly and sin
that brings misery upon him.
Our misery stems from our sin-
ful humanity, God meets Us in
the place and point of need. We
have within ourselves a power
that will release once agalP
God's favour. We need to be
restored to our relationship with
God. Our prayer Is: “Show us
your mercy O Lord and grant
us your salvation.” God's mercy
and salvation is tor those who
fear the Lord. “We know that
all things work together for
good for those who love God,
who are called according, to his
purpose.” Romans 8:28.

We need to recognize God's

BISA UTIGO BURIAL

ability. to help us Our ery tor
merey is an expression of our
faith in him. Those who come to
him invariably have their needs
met. God is the only one truly
able to meet our needs. He is
the one on whom we must
depend.

God wants us to be like him:
he wants us to be merciful. We
must respond to other persons
who are in need. God wants us
to be a witness to his loving
mercy by showing mercy to oth-
ers. Much of our domestic v10-
lence revolves round the tack
of showing mercy.

In the Gospels, Jesus encour
ages us to have mercy. In
Matthew 5:7 he calis the merct-
fui biessed. In Luke 6:36 he tells
“Be merciful, just as your
Father is merciful.” To be made
in the image of God ts to share
the heart of God. We are to

identify with the needy and the.

oppressed. God expects us to
he merciful. To be God's image
is to reflect his characteT.
Because God shows us his mer-
ey, We too can show mercy lo
those around us, providing In
our own compassion a witness
to the loving mercy of God.

Prayer: Show us your mercy
O Lord, and grant us your sal-
vation.

Promise. To be merciful to
others.

alentine’s Day stories:

@ By PETURA BURROWS

Tribune Feature Writer

hen it comes to Valentine’s Day, there

are so many different stories of its origin.

The most popular involves a priest named
‘Valentine’ who performed secret marriages when
an emperor ordered that none of the young men
should be married because they would be better sot
diers in the war than husbands.

Another story is about a man named ‘Valentine’
who fell in love with a girl while he was in jail. Just
before he died, he wrote her a love letter and signed
it, “From your Valentine”. The day soon became
celebrated as Valentine’s Day in honour of the ill-fat-

-ed lover. And decades later, Valentine’s Day is hailed
as the most important day to express affection to
_ those: you love.

Though it is taken in so many forms, to so many
different people in the secular and. religious world,
love - true love that is - has its foundation in God.

_ There are three principal Greek words which can
be translated as “love” in English, each with different

_ connotations.

e Agape (ah-gah-pay) refers to God’s love for
mankind, is the main word used for “love” in the

_ New Testament.

e The two most common are eros, which refers to
sexual love, . .
e And philos, which means friendship or brother-

ly love (Eros does not appear in the New Testament,

but philos does).
Yet, of all the biblical topics often preached about,
God’s love is not among the top sermon picks.
- Bishop Ros Davis, pastor of Golden Gates Assem-
bly World.Outreach Ministries International, said
recently that Christians often do not talk about God's

‘jove because we don’t really understand it.

_ “His love is unconditional, while the other forms of

~ love may have conditions placed on them. He loves

inspite of, even when there is one that does not

= appear lovable, even when sin is attached to that
- person,” Bishop Davis told Tribune Religion.

_“This type of love doesn’t always make sense to us,

- and that’s why we don’t really talk about it. It’s hard |

for us to comprehend.”

_ Purpose of God’s Love

The love of God is a unique, proprietary love. It is



& BISHOP Ros Davis (centre), pastor of Golden
Gates Assembly World Outreach Ministries Int. says
Christians often do not talk about God’s love because
we don’t really understand it.

(FILE photo)

a love that has only One source...God Himself. We
cannot find this kind of love (agape love) in anyone
or anything but God. He is agape love. This is a love

- that seeks to sacrificially meet the greatest need of the

other, regardless of the worth, performance, or
responsiveness of the other.

Man is born dead (spiritually separated) from God.
It’s not that he does not have a spirit. It is rather
that his spirit is alive to satan and dead to, separated
from, God. When Adam ate of the tree of the knowl-
edge of good and evil, he died that day spiritually
(Genesis 2:16-17) as did all of future mankind (I

Corinthians 15:22; Romans 5:12). .

‘The biblical truth of the matter is that we were
there, in Adam, when death came in and death
spread to all men. Herein lies man’s greatest
need...the solution to death. Man has a much bigger
problem than just sin. He has a “consequences of sin”
problem (Romans 6:23)...he’s spiritually dead!

Jesus, on the other hand, -has the market cornered
on eternal life. Jesus’ ultimate, bottom-line purpose
in loving us was not just to die for us (as essential as

. that is to our salvation)...but to give Life to us.

Eternal life however, is not a thing. Eternal life is
found in.a person...the person of Jesus Christ (John

‘His love is unconditional’

5:4: 10:10; 14:6; 1 John 5:11-13). He is the solution to
man's greatest need and He provides that solution,
life, because He loves us.

The Cross

The cross was the greatest expression of God’s
agape love in action. He sought to sacrificially meet
the greatest need of humankind, regardless of our
worth, performance, or responsiveness to Him.
Therein is the proof...not that we loved God, but that
He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation
(satisfaction) for our sins.

When we didn’t even love Him, He loved us. With-
out any form of reciprocation on our part, no

response from us, He has loved us and died for us. °

From God's perspective, every human being is worth
His only Son, whom He sacrificed. . ;

No human being could ever clean up his act,
improve his performance, or make himself acceptable
to God. But God demonstrates His own love toward
us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for
us (Romans 5:8)...For God so loved the
world...(John 3:16)...and He Himself is the propiti-
ation for our sins; and not for ours only, but also for
those of the whole world (I John 2:2).

According to Bishop Davis, as human beings, the
various forms of love are all part of us; philos should
be expressed by all people at all times, and eros must
be controlled until it can be released in its appropri-
ate place (that is, within a marriage).

“The way God made us, all forms of love are a part
of us, a part of our makeup. And when you under-
stand that agape love of God, it helps us to also
understand the nature of God and in turn under-
stand more about ourselves,” said Bishop Davis.

While it seems unreasonable for a human being to
siinilarly look to always.express this unconditional
love, Bishop Davis believes that God expects Chris-

_tians to use Him as an example.

“There are some people and things we can’t stom-
ach, and people who live deviant lives. We don’t
want them to come into our churches because we
think that God doesn’t like them or want them there.
But we must remember that God loves everyone
and accepts everyone.”

“His love should be our example. When you get in
that area where you are able to accept and love peo-
ple in spite of - for God’s namesake - that’s when you
are following God’s example of love.”

_ INTERNATIONAL NEWS : A

New Orleans tornado leaves dozens of
Katrina victims in trailers homeless again

m@ NEW ORLEANS

STORM-WEARY Curtis Jeffer-
son is homeless. Again.

Hurricane Katrina destroyed his
home in New Orleans’ Gentilly
neighborhood more than 17 months
ago. Hurricane Rita chased him from
a friend’s place in Lake Charles a
month later. Now he’s looking for
yet another place to live after a tor-
nado ripped holes in his government-
issued trailer early Tuesday, accord-
ing to Associated Press.

“It’s just bad luck, man,” Jeffer-
son, 60, said as he waited in his bat-
tered car for a Federal Emergency
Management Agency worker to
inspect his Uptown trailer, his home
for the last eight months.

FEMA workers fanned out across
the area to assess the latest damage
to the thousands of trailers that have
been sheltering displaced residents

since Katrina hit on Aug. 29, 2005.
The agency had counted at least 50
damaged trailers by Tuesday, but
the number was expected to grow.
An 85-year-old woman, Stella
Chambers, was killed and at least 29
people were injured.

Chambers was almost out of her
government-issued trailer. Only one
utility hookup remained before she
could once again live in her modest
red brick home that had taken a
year-and-a-ha!f to rebuild after Kat-
rina. Her rebuilt home was flattened
by the tornado, which the National
Weather Service said Wednesday
may have been two fwisters.

After Katrina, many questioned
the wisdom of placing so many flim-
sy trailers along the hurricane-prone
Gulf Coast. Tuesday’s tornadoes
confirmed many occupants’ fears.

came out nearly unscathed when the
tornado tossed and crushed his
FEMA trailer in Westwego like a
soda can. “I came out with under-
wear, a T-shirt, no shoes.”
Residents whose trailers were ren-
dered uninhabitable by the latest
storm will be provided with a hotel

room or another trailer, according

to FEMA.

Firefighters went door to door,
once again searching for victims.
They spray-painted bright orange
rectangles on the buildings and trail-
ers and, as with the circles searchers
used after Hurricane Katrina, they
listed the date of the search and
whether bodies were found.

“Some of these houses still have
the circle on them from the last
search,” resident Patrick Clemen-

At the same time, there was
a boardroom restructuring at
Burns House, the liquor dis-
tributor of which ABDAB is
the majority shareholder.

Mark Finlayson, Sir Garet’s
son, resigned as Burns House-
’s president to become manag-
ing director at ABDAB, with
his father stepping down from
day-to-day involvement at

Burns House. Heineken and
Commonwealth Brewery
assumed responsibility for
Burns House’s daily opera-
tions, which freed up capital

- and resources for the Fin-

laysons to acquire and invest in
the Solomon’s Mines compa-

ABDAB said at the time its
plans were for a “fast-track”
expansion for the Solomon’s



Mines business, opening new
retail outlets at the Mall at
Marathon, Caves Village and
downtown Nassau. .

The company. had also
planned to target duty free



shopping with Solomon’s.

Mines, focusing on high foot-
fall, up-market shopping loca-
tions, and in 2004 had targeted
new store sites at Port Lucaya
and the International Airport

Trading outlet located at
Sandy Port

However, Solomon’s Mines’
stores at Caves Village, the
retail complex in western New
Providence at the junction of
Blake Road and West Bay

Christmas, although sources
said at the time it was unclear
whether it was a permanent or

B WITH camera in hand, The Tribune’s senior photographer Felipé Major has vowed
to capture the picturesque hallways of churches in New Providence to the delight of our
dedicated RELIGION section readers. In this week's collage, he chose to feature the St
Cecilia’s Roman Catholic Church on Third Street, Coconut Grove, where Monsignor
Simeon Roberts is the pastor. According to a statement, the original church was built in
the 1950s. See Page 15

appeals for help
after roof collapse

@ By ALISON LOWE
Tribune Staff Reporter

REBECCA House — home
of the “Ministry of Love", a
shelter and rehabilitation centre
for the elderly, dispossessed and
vulnerable — needs a new roof.

Seventy-four-year-old Dr
llonka Roker, founder of the
Ministry of Love, a charitable
organisation that helps anyone
and everyone in need — “with-
out red tape"-— returned to
Rebecca House after a. short
but well-deserved Christmas
break to find that heavy rain
had finally caused the old wood-
en roof to give in.

Puddles of water extend
through the hall and cover the
floor of what was the main
sleeping area of the building,
ruining the furniture and leav-
ing the Ministry in dire straits.

“Persons who end up ‘here -

Dr Roker said she has never.

asked for any help from the
government because “anytime
you get rejection from people
you don’t go to them.”

She explained how she never
received a pension, and her
experience at the hands of a cer-
tain minister who claimed that
she was not owed a pension
because she owned a property —
Rebecca House — soured her
perception of government.

Since then, she has relied
solely upon community and
individual help.

"The only person I ever went
to with the situation with the
hurricane sometime back was
The Tribune, like I call you in
now, and I ask you to put in the
paper, take pictures, and I get
assistances from the public like
that.”

She has also at times relied
on the pensions or national
insurance payments of those
who are living in her care.

Five or six people have
already been “knocking on the
door” since Christmas asking
for help from the Ministry, “but

until I get sorted out,” she
explained.

Since 1981, when the Ministry
of Love first got underway, Dr
Roker believes that “thou-
sands” of people have passed
through Rebecca House. ,

Each stays for a different
amount of time. “Some been
here for years until they get
rehabilitated — it’s a process and
it depends on what their capa- .
bilities are.”

Single parents have also ben-
efited greatly from Dr Roker’s
drive and persistence over the
years. “A lot of single parents
right now come back and tell
me in the foodstore and all
around how helpful the min-
istry was in their time of need.”

She said that she first took
the decision to start the Min-
istry of Love after working for
seven years in the St Francis
Mary’s coffee house.

. “The needs and the progress
caused this place to get start-
ed,” she said. “There were peo-
ple living in cargo terminals and
buses and any old car on the
street - the Holy Spirit put down
in my heart to do it (build
Rebecca House).”

According to Dr Roker, there
is no other place that provides
what'Rebecca House provides.
“There is a need in the commu-
nity,” she said.

Anyone who is interested in
helping Rebecca House should
call Dr Roker at 323-5380.

Public being cheated on many fronts

JUDGING FROM complaints of residents
from several government low cost housing
developments and the auditor general’s

report, no one in government is minding the
people’s business.

Government has bragged so loudly about .

all the. low cost houses constructed for the
poor that it comes as a shock to learn of the
poor workmanship being approved by gov-
ernment inspectors. :

The Tribune has been paying special atten-
tion to the Ministry of Housing because of
these complaints and the allegations by con-
tractors. What our reporters have discovered
so far seems to corroborate complaints made
by several contractors about conditions under
which they have to work, and the reasons
why many of them cut corners on the job to
be able to make their own financial ends
meet.

A resident of Pride Estates said that after
waiting 10 years and saving to be able to
meet a monthly mortgage of $819 over 25
years for a $245,700 home, she expected qual-
ity workmanship. Instead she and her neigh-
bours have taken occupation of homes with
broken tiles and doors not properly installed,
leaving large spaces for rain to enter, and
insects to crawl under. The litany of com-
plaints about poor quality material and work-
manship seems never ending. Similar com-
plaints are also heard from Excellence Estates
and Dignity Gardens.

Housing Minister Neville Wisdom has

- invited all homeowners to bring their com- °

plaints to him for immediate attention.

He said that the contractors hired by his

Ministry are, in most instances, capable, but
“distracted” — distracted by New Provi-
dence’s current building boom.

According to Mr Wisdom many of these
contractors merely “drop some fellas on the
work site” and turn their full attention to
projects “in Lyford Cay or out east.”

This explanation is not acceptable. Does
this mean that government inspectors, paid by
taxpayers to inspect these buildings at every
stage of construction and approve them
before a certificate of occupancy can be grant-
ed, are also distracted?

It is a shame that a government that prides
itself in being for the little man is neglecting
the interests of so many of them.

The Auditor General’s report also pre-
sented a major task for Prison Superintendent
Elliston Rahming. For years there have been
rumours about missing stores at HM Prison.
Now recommendations have been made to
stop the leaks, which in years past have been
reported to be scandalous.

According to the Auditor General, stock-
taking of prison supplies is unreliable. The

PROTE

CTION

report recommends not only the computeri-
sation of the storeroom, but the taking of a
monthly inventory. Not only are there to be
physical changes to the storeroom, but the
rotation of staff and the installation of sur-
veillance cameras to monitor all activities in
the room also have been recommended.

A physical count taken at random by the
auditor’s department revealed, for example,
that 92 toothpaste tubes were recorded in
the prison stock book, but 202 tubes were
actually on the shelves. The book showed
123 bed sheets, while the shelves held 160; the
stock book recorded 28 blankets, but the
auditor counted 56. And so on it went.

“The differences were discussed with the
officer-in-charge who seems not to appreciate
the implications of the differences since they

‘revealed no shortages,” the auditor reported.

“It was also revealed that the prison has not
taken a physical count of the inventory in
recent times.” He concluded that the “stock
book is not reliable.”

The picture of inefficiency and indiffer-
ence, painted by the auditor, was a perfect
scene for theft.

It is now up to Dr Rahming to stop the
leaks, save the taxpayer’s money, and intro-
duce accountability and efficiency to the
storeroom.

And then there is the Ministry of Foreign
Affairs. No wonder there is such scandal
attached to the visa section of this Ministry.
According to the auditor this section is open
to abuse — documents were missing, many

_ applications for visas were incomplete and

visas were given to questionable individuals.
If the reports reaching The Tribune are true
__ and we believe they are — visas have been
handed out to many questionable individuals.

Instead of spending so much time abroad,
Foreign Affairs Minister Fred Mitchell should
give more time to his ministry.

The auditor general has pointed the way

for improvement. He has noted the weak- °

nesses and suggested the remedy. Apparent-
ly, the police who were requested to check
allegations against this department could find
nothing amiss, but the auditor general dis-
covered, for example, that a person from
Abaco in a two-month period sponsored 41
women, whose occupations were listed as
“seamen,” and in other cases applications
for visas were made twice in a year for one

person, who listed different sponsors each

time.

Obviously, The Tribune was not lied to in
what has now come to be known as the “visa
scandal.” The auditor’s report shows that
there is much wrong with this department.

The stonewalling must stop — something
must be done. |















EDITORIAL/LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Judges are :
priceless in
our society

EDITOR, The Tribune

“THE controversy surround-
ing Justice John Lyons’ state-
ments, in which he called gov-
ernment's failure to effect a
salary review for members of
the judiciary a “constitutional
crisis”, was covered quite sen-
sationally by the local media.
The situation seemed so dire,
that the public was led to
believe that his remarks would
effect a complete shutdown of
our nation’s court system.

Without equivocation, it
would be wrong of anyone to
trivialise the validity and signif-
icance of the justice’s argument.
Any appearance of political
interference in the execution of
justice in our country imperils
every Bahamian’s constitution-
ally protected democratic free-
doms. Having said that, it is
wrong, I believe, for there to be
the suggestion that the opera-
tion of our courts could be
interrupted until there is reso-
lution of this matter. What qual-
ifies resolution? Although gov-
ernment is mandated to review

’ judicial salaries every three

years, there is no guarantee that
any increases will be agreed
upon.

Whether or not judicial
salaries are increased, a judges
adherence to their sworn judicial
oath, which guides their inter-
pretation and execution of the
law, cannot be expected to
change based on the size of their
salaries. A judge’s ethics should
never have a price attached to

them. If they did, our public,

purse could never afford to pay
those whose ethics could be
bought by persons trying to sub-
vert the rule of law. Men and
women who comprise the judi-
ciary must be those of the high-
est ethics and integrity; moti-
vated principally by a desire to
guard justice jealously, without
prejudice or preference, and the
knowledge that these contribu-
tions that they make to preserve
our democracy.are priceless.

Interestingly, US Supreme

, Court Chief Justice, John G

Roberts Jr, recently echoed Jus-

tice Lyons’ warnings in assess-_

ing the state of the American
judicial system. In using the
same dire language as Justice
Lyons, he stated that failure by
the US government to raise fed-
eral judges’ salaries “has now
reached the level of a constitu-
tional crisis that threatens to
undermine the strength and
independence of the federal
judiciary”.

Chief Justice Roberts noted
that there has been a 23.9 per
cent decline in judicial pay over
the past 25 years, when adjust-
ing for inflation, with the last
substantial pay raise given in
1989. Concerns about poor judi-
cial pay are nothing new in the
US, and were addressed by
Roberts’ predecessor, the late
William H Rehnquist, for some
20 years. Despite these objec-
tions, never was the American
judicial system interrupted due
to protests by members of the
judiciary. .

Financial compensation for
members of the US judiciary
pales in comparison to that of
American lawyers engaged in
private practice, with even first
year lawyers in top US law
firms earning higher salaries.
Justice Roberts blames this fact
for the large number of federal
judges leaving the bench over
the past six years. Poor pay, he
argues, ‘will dilute the pool of
applicants from which new judi-
cial appointees can be taken, by
severely limiting the number of
private lawyers seeking to apply
for judgeships — sentiments sim-
ilar to those expressed by Bar
president Wayne Munroe,
about our local judiciary’s
prospects for attracting Bahami-
an candidates from within the

Park. I must say that recently,
the state of the park is
deplorable. I am not sure how

one goes about in obtaining pet-

mission for use of the park to
sell their wares, but the num-
ber of stalls seem to be increas-
ing by the day. I feel that per-
sons using the park for this pur-

. pose should at least clean up |

after themselves, ie, remove all
garbage left behind by them,
take their tents or barriers with
them when they leave and make
sure the surroundings are the

Justice Roberts asserts that,
“this changes the nature of they.
judiciary when judges are no

lawyers in the practising bar”,+,
which is a concern voiced local-,
ly by newly appointed judge,.,
Damien Gomez. It has been ,

of this belief are profound, rel-,

to...perform their judicial func~z

Bahamian
wins Florida
State Council
Spelling Bee

A CONTESTANT from the
Bahamas has won the Florida
State Council Spelling Bee.

Jade-Erin Mitchell beat a stu-
dent from Florida in the final
round to gain the coveted title.

Jade, of Xaviers Lower
School, and fellow Bahamian
Brittany Ferguson of Our
Lady’s School, travelled to
Orlando to compete in the
event as the first and second
place winners of the Catholic

_ Archdiocesan Spelling Bee.

The Bahamas’ delegation was
led by the Knights of Columbus’
district marshal Earl Thompson
Sr, Knights spelling bee co-ordi-
nator Alpheus Ramsey and
Catholic Board of Education
administrator Pat Coakley.

‘The Annual Florida State
Council Spelling Bee, hosted by
the Kissimmee/Orlando District
Council of the Catholic Knights
of Columbus, pits winners from
the various districts throughout
the state of Florida — 64 in all -
that are eligible for the compe-
tition in categories of grades
five to six, seven to eight and
nine to 10.

The Bahamas entered in both

grade five to six and grade sev-

en to eight categories, repre-
sented by Brittany and Jade-
Erin respectively.

“Though small in stature,

Jade exuded confidence in her
. delivery throughout the entire
competition despite her parents’
and the Bahamas contingent
hanging on her every breath
and where her pauses seemed
like minutes,” said a supporter.

Jade was awarded the win-
ners trophy together with a
cheque for her efforts.

One of her aunts, Therese
Mitchell, a school teacher and
Broward County Teacher of the
Year in Coral Springs, Florida,
attended the competition.

She presented Jade with a
crystal plaque engraved
“Spelling Bee Winner”.

m@ By TAMARA FERGUSON

BAHAMAS Democratic
Movement leader Cassius Stu-
art called the government “dis-
graceful” for its neglect of dis-
abled citizens.

Mr Stuart said his party
believes a government should
be judged on the manner in
which it treats its youth, its
elderly and also its disabled.

Speaking at a protest in

Rawson Square yesterday on
behalf of the Eyes Wide Open
association, Mr Stuart said:
“This latest action by the rela-
tives and friends of our beloved
disabled citizens is proof posi-
tive that once again the PLP
has turned a blind eye and deaf
ear to a group in society in
need of governmental assis-
tance.”

Eyes Wide Open caters to
the needs of the disabled.
According to the association,
they are protesting the gov-

ernment’s failure to provide —

much needed assistance in this
area and are questioning the
proposed National Health
Insurance plan — which accord-
ing to officials is expected to
pool the resources of Bahami-
ans.

The group said that they are

US Embassy

THE US Embassy yester-
day expressed “strong sup-
port” for the Ministry of
Transport and Aviation’s new
Airport Security Task Force.

The embassy said in a state-
ment that the United States
and the Bahamas have a com-
mon interest in promoting air-
port security, and US officials
are confident that the task
force “will lead to solutions to
existing vulnerabilities”.

The statement continued:
“United States’ concerns
regarding security at Lynden
Pindling International Airport

| have been highlighted by
A 50-YEAR-OLD man was ~

recent arrests of airport
employees and recent Trans-
port Security Administration
(TSA) assessments.

“TSA conducts yearly
assessments based upon ICAO
standards. These assessments,
while noting that standards
were generally acceptable
under the International Civil
Aviation Organisation
(ICAO) and that some previ-
ous violations were remedied,
also noted that many ICAO
standards were not met and

@ BDM leader Cassius Stuart

concerned about the conse-
quences of the proposed plan
for disabled persons.

According to Mr Stuart,
Prime Minister Christie has
already failed police officers,
prison officers, Defence Force
officers, medical officials,
teachers and farmers — and
now the disabled community
has been sadly disappointed by
this government.

“The BDM believes that
persons who are physically and

disabled, but are not unable.
They should have the same
opportunities to achieve their
potential and be independent
wherever possible,” he said.

The organisation is request-
ing that special care be guar-
anteed to persons with disabil-
ities and that the financial sup-
port they receive be enhanced.

Mr Stuart noted that for chil-
dren with disabilities, technol-
ogy is an important enabler in
narrowing the social divide
between them and the rest of
the society.

“The BDM will incorporate
into the schools technology to
assist people with disabilities
in their activities once elected
as the government of the
Bahamas,” he said.

According to Mr Stuart, this
technology will include soft-
ware, equipment and devices
with the potential to increase,
maintain or improve the func-
tional capability of individuals
with disabilities — whether at
school or work.

“Individuals with disabilities
should be given assistive
devices to enable them to pur-
sue mainstream education, or
gain employment so as to gain
self-reliance,” he said.

praises new security force

required action to remedy
shortcomings.

“The specific conclusions, as
the ministry rightly noted,
remain confidential to protect
airport vulnerabilities from
being exploited. TSA repre-
sentatives did, however,,con-
duct a review in January 2007
which uncovered several hun-
dred security breaches for
which required follow-up
investigation or disciplinary
action had not taken place.”

The statement said. the
embassy has shared this infor-
mation with the Ministry of
Transport and Aviation in cor-
respondence prepared earlier
this year.

Previous TSA security
reviews have also highlighted
breaches of ICAO standards, it
said.

Referring to a statement
released earlier this week by
the ministry, the statement said
that transport officials were
correct in noting that the
breaches were not identified
by the ICAO, but rather were
reported by the TSA. It reit-
erated the fact that the TSA

assessments are based primari-
ly on standards set by the
ICAO.
“The United States reaffirms
its strong desire to work closely
with the Ministry of Transport
and Aviation to strengthen air-
port security throughout the
Bahamas and ensure the safety
and security of the millions of
Bahamians and Americans who
pass though the international

airports of the Bahamas every -

year,” the statement said.

The problem is that these scandals
distract us all from hard issues

How can we trans-
form the economy of

The Bahamas to ensure that
more Bahamians own the
invested assets of the country
and control its direction? How
can we create more good paying
jobs for thousands of unem-
ployed persons in our nation
and improve income levels of
existing workers?

How can we ensure that
Bahamians have access to land
in their own country at prices
they can afford? How to we
ensure that our education sys-
tem produces a critical mass of
people capable of leading and
performing well in our nation?

How do we ensure that our
young people develop the kinds
of values and principles that
make for peaceful, wholesome
living? How do we transform
our Family Islands so that they
are havens of economic and
social habitation?

How do we ensure that the
social powder keg that is Nassau
can be transformed into to a
place more conducive to rais-
ing your family? How do we
reduce the number of murders
in this country from the cur-
rently high and unacceptable
level?

How do we fix our healthcare
system to ensure that basic
medicines are available to the
public and sufficient beds are
available to meet the health
needs?

THOUGHT FOR THE
WEEK

ur inability to cope
with many of life’s
great challenges has less to do
with the fact that we cannot
than it has to do with the fact
that we will not. It is our minds

that reduce our frustration tol-
erance and our hearts that
makes us quit. Each of us must
develop greater fortitude by
approaching trials with a
stronger sense of defiance. In
the end, we will overcome many
adversities because we discover
inner strength we never knew
we had.

woman who puts God first,
Yolanda is both a student at a
local college and employed



within the country’s tourism
industry. She describes herself-
as being fun to hang out with
and enjoying intriguing conver-
sation. “When I have spare time
I do enjoy a good book. John
Grisham has written some of
my favourites.”

Yolanda told The Tribune
that she entered the Looking
for a Valentine’s Date promo-
tion so that she could enjoy a
wonderful romantic evening in
the company of a interesting
and intriguing young man.
Yolanda, who has a keen sense
of humour, said that she is look-
ing forward to meeting and hav-
ing fun with Alex on their date
and that she wants to see what _
sparks might fly when two opin-
ionated persons meet.

Next up is Ava’s date -
Andrew Stanford

After reading with interest
the short bio on Ava, Andrew
said that he found it most inter-
esting and a little exciting to
know that there are still some
(possibly one, Ava) available,
single, God fearing and inde-
pendent women in Nassau.

A single parent who enjoys
spending quality time with his
son, Andrew said that what
really attracted him to Ava was
her broad and innocent smile. A
romantic at heart, Andrew loves
to cook, and he describes him-
self as also being independent.
“I have my own home, I love
my job, and I have a small busi-
ness.”

Like Ava, Andrew is also up
for a little adventure, he loves to
travel, especially to the Family
Islands and he loves the out-
doors.

“If I am chosen as Ava’s
Valentine’s date I would make
that night most enjoyable and
full of fun and at the end of the
night I know she would ask me
to go on another date,” he said »
with a laugh. “I also have a
sense of humour, so I was told.”

The couples will enjoy a lim-
ousine ride to and from Club
Land’or for dinner, gift certifi-
cates from John Bull, floral
arrangements from The Nassau
Florist, and gift certificates from
Nature's Spa and Buttons
Bridal & Formal Wear.

e The Tribune wishes to
extend to its two winners our
warmest congratulations, and to
each couple best wishes for a
night of new beginnings - a great
meal, good conversation, lots of
fun and, perchance, a touch of
romance,

Prison work stoppage -

light of this I have to admit to
a large degree of consterna-
tion as to what lay beneath the
destructive action of the
(Association),” she said.

Mrs Pratt said that she con-
sequently called in the assis-
tance of members of the Chris-
tian Council to form an inter-
mediary team to engage with
the executive of the Staff
Association.

The mecting between the
two parties, held on February
12, she said, resulted in the
Association agreeing to call off
the work stoppage as a condi-
tion for further discussions.

She explained that the
meeting continued on Febru-
ary 13 and turned to three con-
cerns: The provision of shank-
proof protective vests, resolu-
tion of certain money matters
and the confirmation by gov-
ernment of its intention to
move soon towards raising
salaries of the prison officers

to achieve parity with those of
the police and the Defence
Force.

Mrs Pratt said that she was
surprised to see that among
the issues of concern was that
of salary parity when govern-
ment has already repeatedly
expressed its intention to move
in this direction soon.

“The government, in par-
tial pursuit of this intention,
commissioned a compensation
study that would serve to set
the framework that would
guide the elaboration of equi-
table reward in the entire pub-
lic service,” she said.

The Prison Staff Associa-
tion, she added, participated
in this study.

Mrs Pratt accused the
prison officers of initially hid-
ing their true intent — “that of
disrupting the proper func-
tioning of the prison” — under
the action known as “working
according to the rules.”

very suspicious.”

Beyond this declaration that Jay Damianos’ death was suspi-
cious, the police have only stated that the investigation is ongoing.
The police have been hesitant, for some reason, to go further
and declare the matter a homicide. If the assertions made by Nick
Damianos in his open letter are correct, then a question arises as to
why the police have yet to make the official ruling that the death was

a murder.

The Tribune has learned that the intensity level of the investiga-
tions differs significantly when matters are declared homicides,
rather than being referred to as suspicious deaths.

In homicide cases more senior investigators lead the investigations,
as compared to matters deemed suspicious deaths, The Tribune
was told. Additionally, senior police officers in charge of crime
keep a more engaged watch on the progress of the matter if it is ruled
a homicide, rather than a suspicious death.

Jay Damianos was found dead at an apartment complex on Par-
adise Island on December 17th last year, from what was initially
thought to be a fall from the upper-floor balcony of the residence.

’ Mr Damianos was last seen by friends around 1.30am on the
night of December 17th after a night of dancing at the Atlantis
hotel. He was expected to rejoin friends at the Bamboo night club
downtown after leaving Atlantis, however, Jay never showed up. The
last sighting of him alive was walking to his car which was parked in
a Paradise Island parking lot after leaving the hotel.

Mr Damianos was the son of prominent realtor George. Damianos
and had recently joined the family realty business after graduating

from Rollins College in May 2006.

Senior police officials were unavailable for comment on their
reasoning for not ruling the matter a homicide up to this date.

Ingraham of blocking the release
of pension funds to former prime
minister the late Sir Lynden Pin-
dling, until it was confirmed that

Sir Lynden would resign his seat

in the House.

However, Minister Roberts
said Mr Ingraham did not apply
this requirement to himself when
he started to collect his pension at
the start of 2002.

According to him, Mr Ingra-
ham currently collects $9,500 per
month plus benefits for his prime
minister’s pension, $4,166.66 per
month as the leader of the oppo-

‘sition and an MP salary of

$2,333.33 per month.

“This is clearly a classic case of
naked greed by a greedy and self- -
ish man,” exclaimed Mr Roberts.

Mr Ingraham has answered the
charges noting that he has
instructed his bank to return his
MP and leader of the opposition
salaries to the treasury, retaining
only his pension as a former
prime minister.

Mr Roberts told the House that
Mr Ingraham receives “mon-
strous” benefits from the public
purse under this pension, and
then listed the entire package:

¢ A lifetime benefit of $1,500
per month or $18,000 per year for
utilities.

¢ A lifetime benefit of a per-
sonal assistant who works out of
his private law firm, earning a
salary of $45,000 per year.

e A lifetime benefit of a maid,
with a salary of $9,900 to $16,000
per year

¢ A lifetime personal vehicle,
with free maintenance and of
equal value to those assigned to
Cabinet ministers; .

e A lifetime police driver

¢ Lifetime police security

e A diplomatic passport, that
provides access to the VIP lounge
at Lynden Pindling International
Airport

Lifetime access to an official
car for appropriate events in the
Bahamas.

If the amendment is made to
the Act, the new law will not only
prohibit former parliamentarians
from receiving a salary and pen-
sion simultaneously, but it also
has a provision which will allow
Mr Ingraham to write the gov-
ernment and cease his pension
within 21 days of the amendment
coming into force until such time
as he is retired. :

But, Minister Roberts said, Mr
Ingraham is intent on keeping his
pension and salary.

He said: “He wants the gussi-
mae pension after serving as
prime minister for nine and one
half years versus Sir Lynden who
served as prime minister for 25
years. In my humble opinion an
honourable person would have
declined receiving a pension until
he vacates his seat.”

responsible Supreme Court judge
would seal a file in this particular
instance. I expect that. I am not
surprised by it. I am satisfied if
the only order is that Dannielynn
not leave the Commonwealth of
the Bahamas. That is totally con-
sonant with Anna Nicole’s wishes.
Anna Nicole wished Dannielynn
to remain in the Bahamas with
herself and Howard Stern,” he
said.

At this time, Mr Munroe
asserted that he has no instruc-
tions to contest the order that has
been granted to keep Dannielynn
in the country.

The lawyers for Virgie Arthur

‘were unavailable for comment on

this matter.

The injunction to keep Dan-
nielynn in the country is not the
only controversy surrounding the
child. A paternity suit is still pend-
ing in the U.S. courts filed by Lar-
ry Birkhead, former boyfriend of
Anna Nicole.

Mr Birkhead’s claim of pater-
nity is accompanied by other
claims of paternity by the hus-
band of movie star Zsa Zsa
Gabor, ‘Prince’ Frederick von
Anhalt, along with rumours that a
former bodyguard of Ms Smith
might also be the father. A claim
has even been made that the late
J. Howard Marshall may have
fathered the child through the
artificial insemination of his
frozen sperm.

When asked when the will of
Ms Smith will be addressed Mr
Munroe stated, “I hope that I can
be instructed to admit the will to
probate sooner rather than later
so that persons who think that
there is something to be gained
can find out quickly that there is
nothing to be gained.”

's spy trial



features in new Papa Doc book

A SPY trial in which a
senior Bahamas government
official was sentenced to
death is featured promi-
nently in a new book about
the Haitian dictator, Dr
Francois Duvalier.

The extraordinary case of
David Knox - the Bahamas
government’s information
director in the late 1960s -
dominates the opening
chapters of Papa Doc: Por-
trait of a Haitian Tyrant, due
for publication on April 7.

The book, by The Tri-
bune's managing editor John
Marquis, will appear just
one week before the
centenary of Papa Doc's
birth

And it is expected to cre-
ate tremendous interest
among Haitian exiles in the
United States, Canada and
Europe, as well as the many
people fascinated by Papa
Doc himself.

The book, with its strik-
ing black,-red and gold jack-
et. is already listed on Ama-
zon for pre-order. Mr Mar-
quis is described on the
front cover as “Author of
Amazon.com bestseller
Blood and Fire.”

His acclaimed book about
the Oakes murder case 1D
Nassau in 1943 - launched
in the Bahamas at the end
of 2005 - has sold well all
over the world, and was
named a Caribbean and
Amazon Canada bestseller
last summer.

Julia Tan, executive edi-
tor of LMH Publishing, said:
“Mr Marquis’s work is
among the best I have han-
dled in a lifetime of book
publishing. He undoubted-
ly has the potential to
become a major interna-

tional writer.”

Haitian Tyrant is a 350-

the Duvalier story, covering
the dictator's childhood in
Port-au-Prince, his career as
a country doctor, and his
rise to power in 1957 as
president of Haiti.

The Duvalier family’s
Inagua links are also traced
in the book, which charts an
era of extreme brutality dur-
ing the Duvaliers’ reign in
Haiti between 1957 and
L986.

Mr Marquis said yester-
day: “I have been fascinated
by Papa Doc ever since I
met him at the National
Palace in Port-au-Prince in
1968.

“The Knox trial is, in
itself, a terrific story and all
those who remember the
late 1960s will probably
want to be reminded of the
details. Knox was a charmer
who loved the ladies
and was, in turn, loved by
them.”

David Knox, a South
African born civil servant,
was arrested in Haiti during
the summer of 1968 and
charged with spying against
the Duvalier regime.

RENOWNED supporter of

the arts Winston Saunders
often lent his own creativity to
name many of the works pro-
duced by an emerging local
artist.

Je’Rome Miller felt it appro-
priate, then, to hold his exhibi-
tion of the last six pieces named
by Saunders in his honour.

On Thursday, many of the
country’s art enthusiasts were
treated to an exhibition at the
Dundas entitled “Exuberance,
Pages From My Colouring
Book.”

Many participated in the auc-
tion of one of Miller’s original
pieces to support the Winston

V Saunders Scholarship Fund.
Miller’s benefactor Eleanor
Phillips called on Food Art by
Cacique to ensure all aspects
of the exhibit reflected the
artistic vision of the artist and
the man he was honouring.
- Food Art by Cacique donat-
ed the food and décor for the
event.

“We are driven by our efforts
to make food and eating an
artistic experience. It is impor-
tant to our continued success
that more and more Bahami-
ans develop an appreciation for
art, and so it is a natural fit for
us to support a Bahamian artist
with such talent in his efforts

to develop a local and an inter-
national following,” said Shawn
M Sawyer, president and CEO
of the Cacique Group of Com-
panies.

“Exuberance, Pages From
My Coloring Book,” is Miller’s
second full exhibition of origi-
nal artwork. He has developed
his own style of abstract expres-
sionism and draws on the nat-

ural beauty and cultural expe- _

riences of the Bahamas for
inspiration.
The paintings from the exhi-

bition will hang at the Azure :

The US Embassy hosted a 15-
member delegation from the
state of Rhode Island under the
auspices of the Rhode Island
National Guard-Bahamas State
Partnership Programme.

The delegation, which visit-
ed Nassau February 5 to 8, was
lead by Adjutant General
Robert Bray and included oth-
er officials from the Rhode
Island (RI) National Guard, the
University of Rhode Island, and
the Rhode Island business com-
munity.

The highlight of the visit was
the signing of a partnership
agreement between the Uni-
versity of Rhode Island (URI)
and the College of the
Bahamas.

The president of the Univer-
sity of Rhode Island, Dr Robert
Carothers, signed a Memoran-
dum of Understanding with
Janyne Hodder, president of the
College of the Bahamas at a
ceremony at the president's
home to promote exchange pro-
grammes between the two insti-
tutionssst

Two College of Bahamas
students are currently studying
at URI through this partnership
initiative.

The agreement also makes
possible faculty exchanges, joint
research and paves the way for
Bahamian students to study at
the University of Rhode Island
for in-state tuition rates.

The Rhode Island National
Guard military contingent held
meetings with Deputy Prime
Minister Cynthia Pratt and
Defence Force Commander
Commodore Scavella

At those meetings, both sides

-agreed to send medical techni-

cians from the Rhode Island
National Guard to the Bahamas

Anglican conference
begins in Tanzania

@ TANZANIA
Dar es Salaam

LEADERS of the world’s 77
million Anglicans opened a cru-
cial meeting Wednesday as the
church struggles to reconcile
scripture and homosexuality,
with the American wing com-
ing under increasing pressure
to reconsider its liberal stance
on gays, according to Associated
Press.

Splits between Anglican lib-
erals and conservatives have
been growing for years, but
reached a crisis in 2003 when
the Episcopal Church — the US
wing of the global Anglican
Communion - consecrated its
first openly gay bishop, Gene
Robinson of New Hampshire.

The problems mounted last
year with the election of
Katharine Jefferts Schori, who
supports ordaining gays and is
the first female leader of the
US church.

Conservative Anglicans have
formed a rival network in the
US, under the leadership of
Anglican Archbishop Peter
Akinola of Nigeria, who has
called the acceptance of gay
relationships a “satanic attack”
on the church.

Canon Jim Rosenthal, a
spokesman for the Anglican
Communion, said Wednesday
the conference was sure to be
highly charged over the rift.
“The basic issue here is what to
do about those who decided
they don’t want to stay in the
main Anglican body,” he said.

Akinola gave a letter this week
to the spiritual leader of the com-
munion, Archbishop of Canter-
bury Rowan Williams, which is
believed to demand some con-
cessions to head off a schism.
Africa is home to half the world’s
Anglicans and is dominated by
conservative leaders.

Rosenthal confirmed the let-
ter but said it was private.

Williams has struggled to
hold off one of the biggest melt-
downs in Christianity in cen-
turies, but he lacks any direct
authority to force a compro-

_mise. The Anglican Commu-

nion is the third-largest network
of Christian churches.

Bishop Martyn Minns of Vir-
ginia — one of the most promi-
nent US bishops to leave the
American church for Akinola’s
group — said Wednesday that it
would be best for the US church
to “back off and reconsider” its
stance on gays. But, he said, that
was highly unlikely.

However Jefferts Schori was
not prepared to back down, said
Canon Robert Williams, an aide
to Jefferts Schori. “...she under-
stands the responsibility and the
significance of her work here,”
he said.

The creation of Akinola’s
group, called the Convocation
of Anglicans in North Ameri-
ca, has been the most dramatic
step by conservatives to encour-
age a breakaway Episcopal
group that would be outside Jef-
ferts Schori’s oversight.

An eventual breakup would
be the most stunning fallout
from struggles over gay rela-



ONONO Vv

tionships that also have gripped
Roman Catholics, Lutherans
and other denominations. The
Anglican church was founded
in the 16th century by King
Henry VIII and spread world-
wide by the British Empire.

Several delegates at the six-
day conference, which brings
together the archbishops who
head the 38 provinces in the
worldwide Anglican Commu-
nion, have threatened to refuse
to sit with Jefferts Schori over
the issue of gays.

But Rosenthal said Wednes-
day she is welcome and was
invited by the archbishop.

“Her presence here is
absolute. She is here as the pri-
mate of the Episcopal Church.
She is here by invitation,”
Rosenthal said.

The Anglican conference is
closed to the media, but Rosen-
thal said much of Wednesday
was spent as an orientation for
the 11 new bishops who have
been named since 2005.”

Explosion kills 11 members of
Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guards

@ TEHRAN, Iran



A CAR loaded with explosives blew up Wednesday near a bus car- .

rying members of Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guards in southeastern
Iran, killing 11 of them and wounding 31. An al-Qaida-linked Sunni mil-
itant group reportedly claimed responsibility, according to Associat-

ed Press.

The semiofficial news agency Fars reported that the militant group
Jundallah, or God’s Brigade, issued a statement saying it carried out the
blast. But officials did not confirm the claim, blaming “insurgents and

drug-traffickers.”

The bombing was the worst attack in years in the lawless corner of
Iran near the Pakistan border, where drug gangs and militants have car-

ried out past attacks.

- Jundallah, or God’s Brigade, has been blamed for previous attacks
on Iranian troops in the area. The group, which accuses Shiite-led
Iran of discriminating against Sunni Muslim minorities in the south-
eastern region, also operates in Pakistan, where authorities have

accused it of links to al-Qaida.

The bombing came amid heigh

Freeport’s ‘missing entity’

@ By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

he Freeport
Licensees and Prop-
erty Owners Asso-
ciation and its mem-
bers have become
concerned about what they see
as a delay in obtaining the licence
authorising its incorporation,
despite all relevant documents
and payments having been sub-
mitted to the Government.
These were sent to the Regis-
trar General’s Department last
November, in a bid to incorpo-
rate the Association as a private,
non-profit company that would
seek to establish itself as the pre-
viously “missing entity” to the
Hawksbill Creek Agreement.
At that point, some 200 Grand
Bahama Port Authority (GBPA)
licencees had shown interest in
joining the Freeport Licensees

rights amid the ongoing share-
holder dispute, involving the Hay-

BUTTERFIELD Bank’s
Bahamas-based operations
generated a 29 per cent
increase in net income for fis-
cal 2006, increasing this from
$1.7 million to $2.2 million,
largely on the back of a 33.7
per cent revenue rise.

Revealing its unaudited
results for the fiscal year ended
on December 31, 2006, But-
terfield Bank said its Bahami-

revenues of $9.1 million.

As at December 31, 2006,
Butterfield bank said the total
assets of its Bahamian opera-
tions were $155 million, com-
pared to $97 million the year

Attorney Maurice Glinton,
representing the Association and
one of its initial subscribers,
replied to Ms Butler on Febru-
ary 5, saying the position of the
Association and its incorporators
was that the request for addition-
al material was “unwarranted and
unreasonable”.

He pointed out that the Mem-
orandum and Articles of Associ-
ation had already been stamped
at.the Public Treasury, while the
$834 registration fee cheque had
already been deposited by the
Registrar General’s Department
on December 8, 2006.

Mr Glinton warned that the
Association’s subscribers might
take legal action, saying: “If the
incorporators have not been per-
suasive that the request for the

additional matters is unnecessary
in this instance, and the Regis-
trar General’s Department insists
on having them nonetheless, they
accept that the only proper course
to take so as to avoid an impasse
being reached, thus holding up
the said application, may. be to
have the question resolved by the
Supreme Court.”

Apart from Mr Glinton, the
other initial subscribers include
attorney Rawle Maynard, head
of the Association’s Board, Allan

SOLOMON'’S Mines, the luxury goods
retailer owned by newly-knighted entre-
preneur Sir Garet ‘Tiger’ Finlayson, is
in talks with several potential suitors
about a strategic alliance or sale of all
or part of the company, sources told The
Tribune yesterday. » ‘

No deal hasbeen concluded, and it is
unclear whether one will be sealed. The
Tribune understands, though, that one
of the companies talking to Solomon’s
Mines is fellow jewellery and luxury
goods retailer, Diamonds International,
but other parties are also circling the
well-known retailer.

This newspaper reported over the 2006



Suitors circling Solomon’s Mines

the company had long been interested
in acquiring all or part of Solomon’s

The retail chain, whose brands apart

from Solomon’s Mines also include .

Mademoiselle, Faconnable and Royal
Palm Trading Company, has been seek-

ing a strategic partner, or buyer, for some

time. :

Tribune Business exclusively revealed
last year that Solomon’s Mines is in talks
with Swiss-based Dufry, a global travel
and duty free retail group, about forming
a strategic alliance. .

Dufry operates about 370 shops in 32

countries and already has a strong

Mines was then interested in tapping into

margins and overall profitability. How- |

The CBI trade benefits all flow
one way - to the Bahamas and
the Caribbean, with these nation-
al not reciprocating in terms of
duty free access for US-made
goods.

However, like the Cotonou
agreement which the EPA is
intended to replace, the CBI is
also coming under pressure in the
World Trade Organisation
(WTO), due to the lack of reci-
procity and the fact that the ben-

criminatory.

The US is attempting to secure
a further waiver for the CBI at
the WTO until 2008, but this is
being opposed by Paraguay and
others.

Mr Lowe said yesterday: “Yet
again we are operating from a

The Ministry of Foreign

However, The Tribune was told
that consultation was largely lim-
ited to one meeting at the Min-

istry of Foreign Affairs on Janu-'

ary 8, just about a week before
the Bahamas was supposed to
submit its ‘wants and needs’ on

the EPA to CARIFORUM by «

the January 15 deadline. .

Mr Lowe said: “One meeting
does not consultation make. Our
consultation was very late in the
game, as the Government was
finding itself with its back against
the wall, and now needs the pri-
vate sector.”

‘A briefing afenaten for the
Cabinet’s sub-committee on trade
by the Ministry of Foreign
Affairs, which has responsibility
for international trade, warned
that the Bahamas would lose “its
favourable, $20 million trade bal-
ance” with the EU if it failed to
sign the EPA, while hundreds of
jobs would be jeopardised if Bac-
ardi and Polymers International
shut their respective operations
due to their exports becoming
uncompetitive.

The Government document:

detailed that the Bahamas export-

' ed some $66.315 million worth of

goods to the EU in 2004, largely
made. up of Bacardi’s rum and
spirits products, lobster and other
sea food products, and polymers
from Polymers International in
Freeport.

These goods entered the EU
duty-free; but if. the Bahamas

remains. outside the EPA, they .

will attract from, 2008 onwards
what is called the ‘Most Favoured

Nation’ (MEN) rate of duty. This |
means that EU members have to: ‘

apply the same rate of duty to the
same imports from all nations;
they cannot discriminate.

If the Bahamas lost its duty-
free preferences by remaining
outside the EPA, the. Bacardi,
Polymers International and sea

food products would all see their’

prices increase and become
uncompetitive.

For Bacardi, loss of duty-free
access would see tariffs imposed
on its rum equivalent to $5 per
gallon.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs
document said: “An additional
cost of $5 per gallon would make
the Bahamian-produced rum
uncompetitive, and would likely
cause Bacardi to shift its produc-
tion to either Puerto Rico or
Mexico, where the MEN tariffs
are not applicable.

“For the Bahamas, the loss
would, bé!substantial, and would
include the loss of $13. 262 million

Doct

in excise taxes, as well as the loss |
of approximately 180 jobs for |

Bacardi's Bahamian workers.”

Just over $35 million worth of |

sea food products were exported
to the EU from the Bahamas in
2004, and loss of duty-free access
would lead to a 12.5 per cent tar-
iff being imposed.

Referring to Anthony McKin-

“ney, head of Paradise Fisheries,

the Ministry of Foreign Affairs
briefing note said this would raise
the price of Bahamian lobster by
$2.42 2.50 per pound, making it
ee
The loss to the Bahamas would
be the value of the lobster export-
ed, and the income loss of the
Bahamian fishermen who catch
the lobster, as well as $649,259 in
royalties. It is possible that alter-
native markets for the lobster
would be found, but there would
be no guarantee that the price
obtained would be as good as the
European Union prices,” the
Ministry’s analysis read.

Excerpt

‘The excerpt on Polymers Inter-
national showed how the EPA
could have an‘impact potentially
stretching beyond the firms and
industries directly affected.

The document read: “The
MEN tariff on polymers range
from 7- 12 per cent, and the prin-
cipals of Freeport polymers have
indicated that if they lose their
duty-free entry into the EU mar-
ket, it would not be profitable 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 con-
tractors, who supply services to

.. Polymers, as well as the loss of.
_ approximately 10 per cent of

Freeport Power’s revenue, since

. Polymers uses approximately 10

per cent of the electricity gener-
ated by Freeport Power.”

Jobs at the Freeport Container
Port and Grand Bahama-based
trucking companies might also be
impacted if Polymers lost its EU
business.

The Government document
added that if the Bahamas signed
on to the EPA, it would lose
about $10-$14 million in per
annum tax revenues on European
imports. °

As a two-way agreement, if the
Bahamas signs on to the EPA, it

would have to offer the same tar-
iff cuts to exports trom the EU

as those countries were offering
Bahamian companies, thus reduc-
ing import duties and the tax take.

The EPA would also see the
Bahamas offer market access to
EU firms in areas such as invest-

' ments, services and government

procurement, provided it did not
seek any reservations or opt-outs
from particular provision.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs

' concluded: “Were the Bahamas

NU:

_ to sign on to the EPA when it is
negotiated, the revenue loss
| would be in the $10 - $14million
| range, but the Bahamas would
; keep its export markets and
| secure a significant number of
| Bahamian jobs.
| “If, however, the Bahamas
, Were not to sign on to the EPA,
the losses could include, its
favourable $20 million trade bal-
/ ance with the EU, the loss of two
| significant manufacturing opera-
| tions (Bacardi and Polymers), the
\revenue from lobster exports, and
ithe loss of a number of Bahamian
jobs.
_. “One of the conclusions to be
drawn from the above analysis is
that, maintaining its preferential
-access to the European market is
in the best interest of the
Bahamas. Thus in determining
the structure of its market access
offer, the Bahamas could seek to
mitigate its revenue losses over
the long term, while maintaining
market access.’

, The Ministry. recommended
that the Bahamas seek to exclude
from the EPA negotiations cuts in
tariffs on poultry, fresh meat,
fruits and vegetables.

It added that Bahamas tariff
rates between 5-30 per cent
should be cut in the short-term,
while those of 35 per cent and
higher be slashed in a phased,
long-term approach.

The Bahamas imported almost
$43 million worth of goods from
the EU in 2004, with more than
half - some $23.254 million - con-
fined to 16 tariff lines, nine of
which were duty free. This meant
that some $9.299 million entered
the Bahamas duty free.

From this, the Government
worked out that. the maximum
duty the remaining $33.631 mil-
lion could attract was $14.3 mil-
lion.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs
recommended that negotiating as
part of the Cariforum market
access offer would benefit the
Bahamas, as the other CARI-

COM nations would have more -

Deputy Prime Minister says
participants will be punished

@ By KARIN HERIG .
Tribune Staff ‘Reporter

THE ‘work stoppage by
prison officers this past week
was illegal and each participant
will be punished with the “max-
imum fines permitted,” Minis-
ter of National Security Cyn-
thia Pratt declared last night in

- the House of Assembly.

Addressing parliament on
the issue of a go-slow which
escalated into a massive sick-
out at the prison, Mrs Pratt said
that in addition to the officers
being made to pay fines for the

four-days in-question,: the exec

utive of the Prison Officers
Staff Association also will be
required to make a “sincere
and appropriate public apology
to the deputy prime minister
and minister of national securi-
ty and to the superintendent of
prisons.”

“Each officer who engaged
in the work stoppage will be
reprimanded and will suffer the

reduction of three days in his
or her accumulate leave,” she
said.

Mrs Pratt said that reliable.

evidence exists that the assaci-
ation’s executive “actively
engaged in pressuring officers
to join the work stoppage.”

“On the weekend of the
work stoppage, efforts were
made to damage the prison’s
water system and the prison’s
kitchen staff came in for direct
pressure to join the industrial
action,” she said. _

The Minister of National
Security said that in addition

to. the work stoppage being ille-.

gal, it was also without cause.
“Over the past two years the
superintendent of Her
Majesty’s Prison maintained
cordial and open communica-
tions with the Prison Officers
Staff Association, a fact
acknowledged by the executive

Anna Nicole’s mother receives
injunction blocking Dannielynn’s
_removal from the Bahamas

- @ By BRENT DEAN



THE mother of Anna Nicole Smith, Virgie Arthur, received an
injunction blocking the removal of her five-month-old grand-daughter,

Dannielynn, from the Bahamas.

Lawyers for Ms Arthur —Jamal Davis and Desmar Whitfield-Hen-
field — accompanied their client from the Supreme Court late Tuesday

evening.

Visits to the Supreme Court to see the terms of the injunction by The
Tribune and the international media were unsuccessful — indicating that
the injunction has been sealed by the court.

Lawyer for the deceased Anna Nicole Smith, Wayne Munroe,
remarked on the injunction yesterday.

“I cannot tell you anything whatsoever, nor am I surprised ‘that a

m@ By BRENT DEAN



JAMIESON Damianos was
the victim of murder, claimed his

brother, Mr Nick Damianos, in }

an open letter to The Tribune.

“The autopsy report clearly
reveals that the cause of death }
was asphyxiation caused by stran- ;

- gulation. This has been unequiv- }

ocally confirmed by several med- }
ical experts in the Bahamas and in }
the United States. Jay also sus-' j
tained minor defensive wounds }
on his hands and forearms. My }

family and I have consulted

numerous doctors, pathologists }

and criminologists who have
unanimously concluded that my
brother was the victim of a homi-
cide,” Mr Damianos stated.

In late December Chief Super-

‘intendent Hulan Hanna said that
