PM saves vendor

Intervenes to
stop move from
Rawson Square

By ALISON LOWE
Tribune Staff Reporter

AN alleged case of victimisa-
tion was defused yesterday after
Prime Minister Hubert Ingra-
ham (pictured below) stepped
in personally to thwart an
attempt to remove a news ven-
dor from Rawson Square.

The vendor, Bertrand

. Thurston, was first asked earli-

er this week to pack up his news
stand on the edge of the public
square.

He told The Tribune that he
had good reason to believe the
move stemmed from a personal
vendetta against him by a senior
government official.

However, at the 11th hour, it
is claimed that Mr Ingraham
personally stepped in and told
the official "not to mess" with
the vendor
and his liveli-

hood.
1 M r
| Thurston —
1 who has

operated his
yellow news
| stand in the

area for
about 10
years — said
the saga
began when
he was
approached



by the civil
servant's secretary earlier this
week and told that "Mr Ingra-
qam required that he move"
‘rom the popular spot.

Later, at a meeting with the
secretary in her office, Mr
Thurston was informed that she
aad been directed by her boss
to request his removal as the
Ministry of Tourism was carry-
ing out a "beautification pro-
ject" in the downtown area,
which would encompass the
square.

This information appeared to
be corroborated by a tape
recording, allegedly of that
meeting, heard by The Tribune.

Questions were raised, how-
ever, When a conversation with
officials at the Ministry of
Tourism proved that no such
project was underway, said the
vendor. This was later con-
firmed in a conversation
between The Tribune and
Gabriella Fraser, director of
communications at the ministry.

While minister Tommy Turn-
quest claimed the government
does have a project underway,
when asked whether this par-
ticular senior official would usu-
ally be the one to issue such
directives relating to Rawson
Square, he said: "I have no
idea."

Seeking to allay concerns,

however, he said: "There's only
one government. It doesn't mat-

. ter who in the government does
it, but there's only one govern--

ment."

The minister said the official
may have been the wrong per-
son to issue the directive, but
added that his involvement in
attempts to move Mr Thurston
was "done innocently in my
view."

While stressing that Mr
Thurston should not be vic-
timised, the minister continued
to stress that the square is "no
place for a news stand."

The official involved declined
to comment.

Unexpectedly, the drama fur-
ther escalated when Mr
Thurston alleged the official
himself showed up at the stall,
asking Mr Thurston to "shut it
down and go to social services."

When Mr Thurston produced
his tape-recorder, the official
scurried away, he said.

Police Commissioner Paul
Farquharson said Mr Thurston
was not being victimised but
merely being asked to relocate.
Nonetheless, he was adamant
that Mr Thurston would be
required to move.

"There is a general clean-up
downtown and persons in
charge of those areas have
asked me to relocate Mr
Bertrand Thurston," he
explained.

However, asked who had told
him that Mr Thurston should
be removed from the square,
the Commissioner responded:
"I don't think I need to answer
that."

Asked whether the official in
question would usually be
known to give such directives,
Commissioner Farquharson
said: "I don't have any interest
in that at all."

Meanwhile, in a fastalitct
attempt to save the business
they have run for ten years, Mr
Thurston and his wife contacted
the Prime Minister's Office to
ask whether Mr Ingraham him-
self had been behind the origi-
nal request for his removal.

It was at this point that Mr
Ingraham is said to have driven
to the office of the official in
question and told him "not to
mess" with Mr Thurston and
his stall.

"When we got to the Com-
missioner, at first he had said
he wanted to speak to us about
being relocated, but when we
got into the meeting he was like,
‘OK - y'all can stay'," said
Thurston. "He said it was a mis-
understanding."

Mr Thurston's wife added of
Mr Ingraham:."He's really
impressive. He dealt with the
matter quickly."

Anna Nicole net worth
estimated at $10-$15m.



ANNA Nicole Smith’s real net worth was last
night estimated at between $10-15 million by a US
investigator who has been working on her case for
the last six months.

Declared personal assets of only $10,000 and a
Los Angeles property worth around $700,000
mentioned in her will are only a small part of
her true fortune, the investigator said.

It was felt the bulk of her money could have
been stashed in a holding company called Crack-
er Incorporated, which US sources say could be
registered in the Cayman Islands.

“In my estimation, her current assets should be
around $10 million to $15 million. A company
called Cracker Incorporated was set up at around
the time the boat was bought in February,” said
the investigator.

“My belief is that most of Anna Nicole’s mon-
ey is in offshore accounts, probably in the Cayman
Islands and elsewhere.”

The comments came in an exclusive interview
with The Tribune following shocked reaction to
the modest assets declared in the late cover girl’s
will.

A company called Hot Smoochie Lips, set up to
handle earnings from Anna Nicole’s modelling
career, is now apparently defunct. But Cracker
Incorporated was reportedly established shortly
before Anna Nicole died in February during a trip
to Florida to buy a boat.

“Anna Nicole was worth far more than the

The Irish property developer is now looking
at making a $150-$200 million investment in

Speaking with The Tribune yesterday, Mr
Laing, MP for Marco City, said the long-suf-

on the resort begins.

. He said that any work to be done on the
property during this upgrading phase will mean
jobs for construction workers, and later when
the resort is up and running there will be per-

g fury at
alarm
failure

By BRENT DEAN
and ASHLEY THOMPSON

ZNS employees were furious
yesterday when the TV station’s
fire alarm failed during an
emergency evacuation.

Fire trucks were alerted at
around 12.45pm as the smell of
smoke permeated the news-
room.

When The Tribune arrived
on the scene, dozens of employ-
ees were standing outside the
facility.

One said that, while at work
in the building, he saw other
employees evacuating, was told
of the possible fire, and subse-
quently followed the crowd.

Another employee decried °
working conditions at the
broadcasting corporation.

“Nothing working in the
building. Nothing,” she said.
“They get us in the building
with nothing working — no fire
alarm.”

The angry employee added
that some doors were locked,
raising questions about safety
if there were a real fire.

In giving the all-clear, after
an hour-long investigation
involving two fire trucks and
more than a dozen firefighters,
Supt Jeffrey Deleveaux said a
mechanical malfunction in an
air-conditioning unit was
responsible for the smell of
smoke.

“When we arrived, there was
the strong odour of smoke in
the newsroom area. We pro-
ceeded to check all of the pos-
sible areas — light ballast, the
air-conditioning system. We lat-
er discovered that a belt that
drives the compressor for the
air-conditioning system was
damaged, causing the smoke to
go up through the system in the
newsroom area,” he said.

Everything was back to nor-
mal and there was no damage
beyond the belt in the air-con-
ditioning unit, he added.

Mr Deleveaux confirmed that
no alarm was activated, but sug-
gested that the intensity of the
smoke may have been at sucha
low level that it would not have
been picked up by smoke detec-
tors.

However, working smoke
alarms can be triggered by a
small amount of smoke. If the
smell of smoke was strong
enough to evacuate the build-
ing, and have the fire authorities
called, alarms in the building
may need to be inspected, said
staff.

Attempts to contact general
manager Anthony Foster were
unsuccessful.

Concern on
Royal Oasis

eness’

she had expected, after two and
a half years of uncertainty.
Harcourt Development Ltd,
an Irish development company,
announced that it had contract-
ed to purchase the Royal Oasis
Resort in Freeport. The com-
pany stated that it had agreed
terms with Lehman Brothers
Holdings and was keen to begin
restoration of the resort.
Since the closure of the
resort in 2004, more than half of
the businesses in the Interna-
tional Bazaar have closed, and
those that remained open have
downsized their operations and
staff to keep their doors open.
Ms Thomas, operator of
Island Galleria, is among the

‘small percentage of merchants

who have struggled to keep
their businesses open at the
Bazaar.

She said many storeowners
have grown weary because
many initial announcements of
a sale for Royal Oasis never
materialised. She thanked the
residents for their support dur-
ing difficult times.

“T have read several times in _

the newspapers that the deal is
about to be close .. . and I’ve
read (Friday’s) article with great
care, and the wording (in the
latest announcement) leads me
to believe that the sale isn’t
absolutely final,” she said.
“We were hearing rumours
prior to the election that the
hotel was actually sold, and that
negotiations have been finalised
and documents signed. But, Fri-
day’s article didn’t leave me 100
per cent sure that negotiations
were complete and that any-

‘thing had been signed. It is a

little bit disturbing because we
thought that that had been
done,” said Ms Thomas.

Tourism Minister Neko
Grant could not confirm the
sale, but said he believes that
the reopening of Royal Oasis
would revitalise the tourism
industry in Grand Bahama.

“J am not able to comment
on the statement (by Harcourt)
as I have not seen it, but I can
say that the government is
appreciative of what this
reopening can do to revitalise
the tourism product, as well as
the Grand Bahama economy.

So we welcome the opening as
soon as possible,” he said.

Chris Payne, vice president
of International Bazaar Own-
er’s Association, welcomes the
news, but said that everything is
still very vague at moment as
to what Harcourt’s plans are for
the Bazaar.

“T think that from the Bazaar
owners’ perspective it is good
news, and to know that finally
the purchase is being complet-
ed, or in the process. of being
completed, must bode well in
terms of the International
Bazaar.

“How exactly it would
impact the Bazaar, we don’t yet
know. But I would imagine we
will be having some discussions
with the Harcourt Group in the
foreseeable future of perhaps
how we can work together.

“Everything is very vague at
the moment in that we, in the
Bazaar, don’t know the inten-
tions of Harcourt regarding the

Bazaar. I think we certainly .

understand their interest in
developing the whole area, but
again, we don’t know the
details. But, we understand
that part of development
would encompass the Bazaar,
or the property on which the
Bazaar stands,” he said.

Mr Payne, owner of Paradise
Jewels in the Bazaar, said it has
been a long, hard road for mer-
chants at the International
Bazaar.

“It’s been two and a half

~ years of uncertainty and many’

initial announcements as we all
know. We are hoping for some-
thing concrete to come out of
this, as I am sure do many of
the ex-employees of Royal
Oasis.”

Mr. Payne said it is still too
premature to say whether those
former store owners will return
to reopen their businesses.

“T am sure that will be case,
but until we speak to Harcourt
about how they envisage the
overall concept of the Bazaar, it
is a bit premature to say that. If
the Bazaar stays in its existing
form, I don’t think it would be
difficult to get them to all come
back, but we also expect there
will be interest by new parties,”
he said.

expressed over witnesses at the

US sources believe both Jack

Jackie Hatten should be called
to give evidence.

Harding was consulted by
Daniel shortly before the 20-
year-old left California for the
Bahamas last September to see

his newborn sister, Dannielynn.
He died at his mother’s hospital
bedside the morning after his
arrival in Nassau.

Harding has already said on
cable television that Daniel was
afraid of Howard K Stern,
Anna Nicole’s lawyer, who is
still living at Horizons on the
Eastern Road, and concerned
about his own relationship with
his mother.

One source said: “Harding is
willing to travel to the Bahamas
to give evidence. Jackie has
already been to Nassau. She
had known Anna and Daniel
forever, and could give evidence
about their behaviour.”

It is also thought that Ray
Martino, who looked after
Daniel when Anna Nicole and
Stern left the US for Nassau last
summer, should be called. He
would tell the inquest that
Daniel had no history of drug-
taking, the source claimed.

Meanwhile, US sources close
to the Anna Nicole story say
Stern has applied for residency
in the Bahamas, but this has not
been officially confirmed.

FREEPORT - The current
tourism promotion and adver-
tising campaign is inadequate
to address Grand Bahama
Island’s needs, according to
Neko Grant.

In his first public appear-
ance in Grand Bahama since
being sworn in as Minister of
Tourism, Mr Grant said that
there is little awareness in key
markets of what the island has
to offer.

“In fact, one can say Grand
Bahama is practically invisi-
ble in the marketplace. We
therefore need a bigger bang
for our buck in our offshore
promotions,” he said on
Thursday at the tourism office
in Freeport.

Mr Grant also noted that
there is an urgent need for
increased airlift, sustained
cruise business and new
resorts.

During 2006, he said,

217,431 passengers came to

‘Freeport on a total 6,927

flights with average load fac-
tor of 50 per cent.

A total of 174,869 passen-
gers came by cruise vessel
compared to 297,652 passen-
gers in 2005. Mr Grant said
there is also the need to devel-
op a strategy for sustainable





cruise business between Flori-
da and Grand Bahama.

The tourism minister said
that additional new invest-
ments in beachfront resort
properties are needed to help
boost tourism arrivals and
revitalise the hotel industry.

“This means recouping
existing room losses while
attracting airlift necessary to
support established as well as
the additional anticipated
demand of the island’s
planned investments,” he said.

Minister Grant said Grand
Bahama will remain a priori-
ty of the government and will
receive the urgent attention
of his ministry.



Building
material
thefts rise

By DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport Reporter

FREEPORT - Grand
Bahama Police have reported
a recent increase in theft of
building materials at various
construction and residential
building sites on the island.

Chief Superintendent Basil
Rahming said that police have
recovered a significant amount
of stolen property and have
made several arrests in recent
weeks.

He noted that a greater per-





centage of thefts are occurring
at residential building sites
located in remote, or sparsely

populated areas, particularly -

during dark evening hours.

Mr Rahming said that
builders should take adequate
measures to secure building
materials while left unattend-
ed, by installing fencing, proper
lighting, guard dogs, and secu-
rity patrols.

Even though the economy is
relatively slow, the construction
industry is booming on Grand
Bahama.



Pastor granted

club’

IN his fight to have an alleged
strip club closed, a local pastor
has been granted a new hearing
to exclusively consider the oper-
ating licences of the establishment,
potentially moving him one step
closer to permanently shutting
down a place he regards as a moral
blight.

The Rev Cedric Moss, who has
led the fight to have the out-west
club closed since December, 2005,
made these remarks in a press
release after his latest hearing in
front of the Licensing Authority
Board.

Rev Moss maintains that the

is also “allied with the commercial

FREEPORT - With the
island’s economy still in a down-
turn, Grand Bahamians are
hoping that the FNM govern-
ment will take steps to reduce
the high cost of living and doing
business.

This was one of the many
election promises the FNM had
made in Grand Bahama, which
has suffered greatly over the
past five years due to the clo-
sure of a major resort and many
small businesses.

Residents have put their trust
in the FNM, and Prime Minister
Hubert Ingraham, who has
promised once again to turn-
around Grand Bahama’s weak-
ened economy, reduce unem-
ployment, and create jobs for
Bahamians.

Grand Bahama experienced
tremendous economic growth
under the first FNM govern-
ment between 1992 and 2002,
as result of the billions of the
dollars in investments in
Freeport.

Today, Freeport residents are
struggling to survive in a
depressed economy, coupled
with a high cost of living.

Now, residents say, rent, elec-
tricity, food, and gas prices have
skyrocketed.

Many have been forced to
leave the island in search of
jobs, and others have lost their
businesses, homes, vehicles, and
property over the last five years.

Freeport resident Bernard
Dawkins is pleased that the
FNM government has decided
to create a ministry to deal
specifically with Grand Bahama
affairs.

“Grand Bahama _ and

Freeport are very different from

New Providence, and I com-
mend the government for cre-
ating a ministry to deal with
issues for Grand Bahama,” he
said.

Mr Dawkins believes that a
major issue confronting resi-
dents is the high cost of living
and operating a business in
Freeport.

“The rent and utility prices
are too high here, and we also
need to get the prices in the
supermarkets and wholesale
stores down, as well as the cost
of health care reduced,” he said.

Mr Dawkins, who is a chef
by profession, said that it is
extremely difficult operating a
business in Freeport, and com-
plained that business licence

“The board has finally decided
to hold a special sitting to exclu-
sively consider my request,” Rev
Moss said.

“In my view, the way this mat-
ter has been, and continues to be
handled by the board, proves that
a majority of the board members
are indifferent to my allegations,”
he said.

“Further, it is my view that there
seems to be an intentional ‘turning
a blind eye’ to the abundance of
documents and information pre-
sented to the board, and that is in
the public domain, all of which
substantiate these claims.”

Rev Moss publicly challenged

High living costs hit

fees are too high.

“The licence fees alone kill
you, and on top of that you
have overhead expenses. And
so something needs to be done
to get the (Grand Bahama Port
Authority) to reduce its busi-
ness licence fees, and the cost of
utilities to facilitate businesses
in Grand Bahama,” he said.

“T had a business and wanted
to go back to it, but when you
look at what is it going to cost

you, it is not worth it because |

some days you can’t pay staff,
or buy inventory because every-
thing in Grand Bahama is just
too costly.”

In Freeport, motorists are
also burdened with high gas
prices, which have soared to
nearly $5 per gallon.

Tourism arrivals in Freeport
are down and residents are
depending on the FNM gov-
ernment to revitalise the island’s
tourism industry.

“I am so glad that Grand
Bahama has gotten another
minister of tourism; we did have
it with Obie Wilchcombe, but
he didn’t seem to push Grand
Bahama,” said Mr Dawkins.

“The International Bazaar is
dead and Port Lucaya is not
doing that well either — the busi-

the board’s chairman, Louis
Hanchell, to defend his and board-
*s actions surrounding the club.

Moss’s public comment sur-
rounding the controversy.

Though the club is widely
known as a venue for exotic danc-
ing, the vindication of the strip-
pers and staff of the now defunct
Butterfly Club in 2005, on similar
charges, raises questions as to
whether or not nude dancing is
illegal in The Bahamas.

And, the fact that the club has
remained open, despite possibly
being in contravention of the law,
may suggest that, like gambling,
many Bahamians have a more per-
missive attitude towards nude
dancing. The new hearing regard-
ing the club’s licence is scheduled
for June 6 at 3pm.

He stressed that the high cost
of living must be addressed in
order to encourage people to
relocate back to Freeport.

A handshake closes the past

JEWISH American veteran Shep Wald-
man knew exactly what he would do when he
came face to face with the former enemy at
the Eagle’s Nest, Hitler’s mountain retreat in
Berchtesgaden, Germany.

Approaching a German veteran equally
burdened by age and war memories, the for-
mer U.S. Army sergeant let out a friendly
greeting: “Comrade,” he said.

“Comrade,” pondered Alois Wuerzer,
struggling with the English, a puzzled look on
his face. Then his weary eyes lit up.

“Kamerad,” he repeated — which in Ger-
man also means “friend.”

Weathered hands stretched out, and one of
the past century’s bitterest divides was
bridged with a hearty handshake.

“Fortunately, we survived it all,” said
Wuerzer, 85, his ruddy cheeks shining as the
two sized each other up amid the pristine
peaks of the Bavarian Alps.

The men were brought together by The
Greatest Generations Foundation of Den-
ver, which seeks to give veterans the oppor-
tunity to visit old battlegrounds. Arranging a
meeting with German vets was controver-
sial, as was moving deep into Germany — a
journey that chilled some of the 23 Americans
and Canadians in the group.

Standing at the Eagle’s Nest, another Jew-
ish American veteran could not bring himself
to join in the reconciliation.

“I was not going to get involved in that,”
said former Pfc. Cy Marmelstein, who had
already taken a big emotional step by enter-
ing Germany again for the first time since
World War II.

The encounter at the Eagle Nest took place
May 12, and the veterans had already toured
England, Normandy, Belgium and Luxem-
bourg before heading to southeastern Ger-
many — among thousands of U.S. veterans
visiting Europe ahead of the June 6 anniver-
sary of the D-Day invasion of 1944.

Marmelstein, in his 80s, has long controlled
his feelings. But being in Germany again and
visiting Adolf Hitler’s mountain redoubt
brought his anguish to the surface.

“Peace with the people? It is hard,” he
whispered. “I know they are not from the
same generation, but it is a hard thing,” he
said, explaining he had relatives who died in
the Holocaust.

Marmelstein’s attitude largely stems from
the events of April 13, 1945, when he walked
into Buchenwald concentration camp two
days after it was liberated by the U.S. Army.

There, soldiers found some 21,000 starving
survivors and piles of corpses, some partially
burned; the Nazi SS and their helpers had
fled. About 56,000 people had died or been
slain in the camp.

“Buchenwald was the primary scar,”
Marmelstein said. “You can see it on TV but

once you were there with the smells, it is
indescribable. It has always been with me. It
is not in the forefront of my mind, but it is
there.” ,

After the war, Marmelstein sold air condi-
tioning in Florida before going into business
selling marble. He now lives in Pembroke
Pines retirement community in Florida.

There would be one constant, he said. “Per-
sonally, I would never, and I haven’t to my
knowledge, purchased German goods.”

Waldman’s contact with the Holocaust was
less direct, although he said he knew Jews
who were persecuted before the war.

“For two years, the rabbi, it was all he
spoke about. It didn’t quite register at that
moment. I could not visualize it,” he said,
remembering his teenage days in Denver.

He volunteered for the Army in 1943 and
was sent to Europe. Near the end of the war,
he found himself in a German village in
street-to-street combat. Stepping around a
corner, he suddenly stood face to face with a
German soldier who was even more stunned.

“T saw him, I had him, he was meat as far as
I was concerned,” Waldman, 83, remem-
bered. “His eyes popped, and that poor kid
was shivering and shaking. I said ’I can’t kill
him. No way I can kill a young man like
that.”

Waldman told him to drop the gun and
run. The German did. Even though Wald-
man, then only 19, later killed a German in
hand-to-hand combat, his compassion never
left him. That made it easier to make peace
with himself, he said, and any enmity toward
the Germans slowly left him.

“JT have gone through that,” Waldman said
of,coming to terms with the horrors of war
and the Holocaust. “It took a long time, prob-
ably 20 years. Now, no more nightmares.”

But time has not dulled his awareness of
what Jews faced under Hitler.

The Eagle’s Nest, jutting out into the
mountain air at 6,017 feet, has been turned
into a visitors’ centre with a restaurant, ter-
races and souvenir shop. Little reminds peo-
ple of the dark past, when Hitler was plotting
war.

On his last day in Germany, he went to a
commemoration at the Dachau concentra-
tion camp, and read the Kaddish, the Jewish
memorial prayer for the dead.

“T am glad I went,” Waldman said.

The handshake also left its mark in Kiss-
legg, Bavaria, where Wuerzer, a former
senior non-commissioned officer in the
Wehrmacht, is enjoying retirement.

“I was so totally surprised” by the hand-
shake, Wuerzer said. “They are good peo-
ple. It is good for two enemies to talk to one
another.”

EDITORIAL/LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

My personal
empathy with
Mrs Christie

EDITOR, The Tribune.

On Thursday, May 17, 2007, I
read with dismay and concern, a

. Tribune article concerning a

shooting that took place at the
residence of Mr Perry Christie’s
mother-in-law. In the article,
The Tribune reported that Mrs
Bernadette Christie “expressed
her profound displeasure at the
way in which the matter was
being handled by the police” as
Mrs Christie felt that there was
a “lack of interest” on the part



Dasa

S)ute esx?) in] Oi ates ate a

of certain officers. I can cer-
tainly empathize with her frus-
tration, as I recently lost my
youngest son, Jamieson. On
December 17, 2006, Jamieson
was strangled to death on Par-
adise Island. Despite conclusive
medical evidence, the police
have still not classified my son’s

death as a homicide. The so-
called “investigation” has been
stagnant for months, and I can-
not even get the police to return
my phone calls. It seems as if
law and order have ceased to
exist in The Bahamas and the
rampant crime that plagues our
streets will eventually destroy
our wonderful country.

Losing paradise
to our pollution

EDITOR, The Tribune.

AS a long term “temporary”
residents of New Providence
due to work commitments, my
wife and I have come to enjoy

many of the advantages of living

in Nassau. Family and friends
are envious; and so they should

be; it’s the Bahamas.

We consider ourselves as
“locals”; and as locals we deal
with the frustrations of living
here, such as the out of control
traffic congestion, hurricane
shutters and the unbelievable,
un-policed, peace shattering din
of the Sunday night Motorcy-
cle Grand Prix. While one
remains frustrated, there is
always the many positive
aspects of living here to soothe
away: such irritations, such as
the friendliness of the people
and the clear warm waters.

The-one thing that we strug-
gle to come to any terms with is
the proliferation of garbage
across this lovely island and
more specifically in the waters
surrounding it. Perhaps unno-
ticed by the tourists whose
immediate surroundings are
undoubtedly carefully mani-
cured and who we doubt are
the prime perpetrators anyway,
rubbish is strewn everywhere
to be eventually scavenged by
marauding packs of dogs, hap-
hazardly picked up by garbage
contractors or washed out to
sea.

We are fortunate enough to
live right on the beach. Warm
evenings and glorious sunsets
are simply magic. Each day, in
an attempt to “do our bit” to

keep the island (and planet)
beautiful, we gather on average
a trash can full of rubbish from
our section of the beach.
Garbage that has either been
washed up during the night, or
that has been mindlessly dis-
carded by persons enjoying the
beach during the day.

This litter comprises anything
from beer bottles (Heineken
seems to be the favourite), plas-

‘tic cups, building materials, life

jackets (two so far — no sign of
owners!), broken glass, Ken-
tucky Fried wrappings, plastic
bags (the standard practice here
of doubie bagging everything is
in itself unfathomable) to bro-
ken glass and hypodermic
syringes.

The beach quickly becomes
a veritable minefield especial-
ly for any toddlers.

With the weather warming
up, and the beaches becoming
more inviting (especially “ours”
because it’s litter free) more
families are attracted to enjoy
the natural beauty of the island.

Yesterday was no exception.
A number of large families
gathered and spent a carefree
afternoon by the sea. It was
obvious that any concern for
the environment was not at the
forefront of their minds. Beer
(Heineken) was drunk in copi-
ous quantities, with the empties
then tossed out to sea. Those
that bobbed in the gentle swell
became targets for other bot-
tles to be thrown at. There was
little thought given to any impli-
cation of these actions. Maybe
their children’s feet have soles
of steel.

They left the beach. They left
Colonel Sanders for the dogs.
They left a trail of litter indis-
criminately discarded as they
staggered to their cars. They left
having had a good day.

The sad thing is that this was
by no means an isolated inci-
dent.

Keeping the island beautiful,
if these actions are any indica-
tion, is almost a lost cause. Just
keeping it clean seems to be a
struggle, not just for the enjoy-
ment of the tourists but for the
locals as well. It really doesn’t
take much. But it starts with
anyone who is lucky enough to
live here.

We shall continue to clean '

the beach, because it’s the right
thing to do. We would rather
not have to. The world’s envi-
ronment is fragile.

However, it will be around
long after we have all passed,
and will eventually recover.
People come to the Bahamas

thinking that they will be enjoy- :
ing one of the few remaining ,
“paradises”. It is sad to think, :
however, that while this may be °

true for other islands in the
Bahamas, New Providence
appears to be struggling with
that label.

Paradise Island doesn’t count.
We doubt if you will find a lot
of discarded litter there. It’s
probably on its way to “our”
beach right now.

EDITOR, The Tribune.

ICAN’T help but wonder if
the PLP is trying to fool them-
selves or the public with its
recent campaign thanking the
people of The Bahamas for its
“popular vote”. This very
same campaign of deceit,
which doctors the numbers
and the statistics, played a sig-
nificant role in the PLP’s
defeat at the polls earlier this
month.

Whereas it is indeed possi-
ble for one party to win the
general elections while the
other party wins the popular
vote, this did not happen on
May 2, 2007.

The FNM won the majority
of seats: FNM 23; PLP 18.

The FNM won the popular
vote: FNM 68,547 (49.82% );
PLP 64,637 (46.98%);
BDM/Ind. 4,394 (3.19%)

The people of The Bahamas
deserve an honest and forth-
right opposition that is willing
to shoot it straight with the
people. There is no place in
this twenty-first century
Bahamas for the kind of trick-
ery and deceit contained in
this recent message by the
PLP.

Force

TEACHERS and stu-
dents of the Gambier Pri-
mary School held a special
programme on Wednesday
morning in recognition of
their special guests from the
Royal Bahamas Defence
Force.

The military organisation,
through its ‘Adopt-A-
School’ programme, chose
| several years ago to become
intimately involved with the
school, and in so doing ren-
ders assistance whenever
possible.

On this occasion, the stu-
dents put on spectacular
performances as the com-
mander of the Defence
Force, Commodore Clifford
Scavella made his first offi-
cial visit to the school.

Gabrielle Rolle, a six-
year-old first grader was
excellent in her role as mis-
tress of ceremonies, as she
ied the programme.

Students from the various
classes entertained the
guests, which included par-
ents and officers from the
school’s Parent Teachers
Association (PTA).

Commodore Scavella
encouraged the children to
continue to maintain a high
standard of education, and
commended Mrs Paulamae
Bethel, principal of the
school, and her staff for pro-
ducing excellent students.

He afterwards congratu-
lated the sixth grade stu-
dents, and presented them
with calculators.

The commodore also
pledged his continued sup-
port to the school, and
vowed that the Defence
Force will assist in whatever
way they can.

Since the programme was
formally established in 1995,
members of the Defence
Force have purchased
school supplies, playground
equipment, computers and
their accessories, video.
machines and television.

‘Guarding our heritage.

Five plead not guilty
over fraud charges

FIVE people were arraigned
together in Magistrate’s Court
yesterday on fraud charges.

Kenricka Sands, 21, Elliot
Minns, 32, Jace Mackey, 23,
Damarlus Curry, 25, and
Lechante Wright, 23, were
arraigned before Magistrate
Guillimena Archer at court 10
in Nassau Street yesterday on
charges of conspiracy to com-
mit fraud, conspiracy to com-
mit forgery, forgery, uttering a
false document and fraud by
false pretences.

It was alleged that on
Wednesday, May 9, the accused
conspired to commit fraud by
false pretences.

A second charge claimed that
on the same day the accused



OFFICERS and marines of
the Royal Bahamas Defence
Force can expect to see an
improvement in salaries, a res-
olution of their health insurance
coverage issue and more boats
and aircraft, National Security
Minister Tommy Turnquest
said.

As he toured the Defence
Force’s base at Coral Harbour,
accompanied Mrs Elma Camp-
bell, Minister of State for Immi-
gration and Commodore Clif-
ford Scavella, Mr Turnquest
said the government is commit-
ted to giving the Defence Force
“the care and attention it
needs.”

“We will take care of you,
and we expect you to take care
of our country,” he told officers
and marines. “I now challenge
you to recommit and rededicate
yourselves to the lofty ideals of
this great institution, as we now
strengthen our partnership to
enable you to bring true mean-
ing to the words of your motto:

“The government and our
nation thank you,” Mr Turn-
quest told Defence Force offi-
cers. “We have come through
a fractious campaign in which
you were called upon to choose
sides. But, choice is the essence
of democracy. The election is
now over and, as Bahamians,
we need to now work together
in the interest of developing our
Bahamas and serving our peo-
ple.”

He said that the state could
not pay for the courage, indus-
try and determination of
Defence Force officers.

“The state, however,.to the
extent that resources permit,

conspired to commit forgery.

It was further alleged that on
or about Wednesday, May 9,
the accused, being concerned
together with the intent to
defraud, forged a_ First
Caribbean International Bank
draft #526451 in the amount of
$311,500 purporting it to be
genuine.

It was also alleged that on the
same day at Paradise Island,
being concerned together, the
accused uttered a First
Caribbean International Bank
draft #526451 in the amount of
$311,500.

On the charge of fraud by

false pretences, it was alleged:

that on May 9, at Paradise
Island, the accused, being con-

cerned together with the intent
to defraud, obtained from
Kabana Boutique a at the Roy-
al Towers in Atlantis, goods in
the amount of $311,500 by
means of false pretences.

The accused all pleaded not
guilty to the charges.

All, except Curry, were grant-
ed bail in the sum of $30,000
with two sureties.

Curry was denied bail and
remanded to Her Majesty’s
Prison because, according to the
prosecution, the accused was
already on bail for charges of a
similar nature.

The matter was adjourned to
September 18.

eA 35-year-old woman was

arraigned in Magistrate's Court
yesterday charged with cocaine
possession.

It was alleged that Elizabeth
Florence Francis of Summer
Haven was found on Thursday,
May 17 in possession of a quan-
tity of cocaine which authori-
ties believed she intended to
supply to another.

Francis, who was arraigned
before Magistrate Renee McK-
ay, at court six in Parliament
Street, pleaded not guilty to the
charge.

The prosecution alleges that
she was found in possession of
six grams of marijuana. Francis
was granted bail in the sum of
$7,500 and the matter was
adjourned to June 5 for a hear-

“The matter of your medical

once and for all. The govern-
ment is committed to providing

has,” he said. “We are commit-
ted to upgrading and expand-
ing the Defence Force fleet and
I will soon be meeting with the
commodore and relevant offi-
cers to develop a plan to
upgrade your fleet, and be able
to prioritise and schedule these
assets in a phased manner.”

He thanked the government
of the United States for its
donation of four, 40-foot patrol
vessels. The vessels are to be
delivered later this year. Mr
Turnquest called it a “true
expression” of the excellent
relations between the two coun-
tries.

He said he was “acutely

aware” that sea-going assets
alone cannot effectively patrol
the 100,000 square miles of
national territory.

Mr Turnquest said he has
been advised that the Air Wing
had “operational difficulties in
recent times and I understand
that the one aircraft is now
operational.

“We need to strengthen the
Air Wing and make it more
functional,” he added.

The primary threats to
national security — drug traf-
ficking, illegal immigration and
poaching — come through the
southern Bahamas. Strategical-
ly, Mr Turnquest said, “we must

e A 39-year-old East Street
man pleaded guilty to a mari-
juana possession charge yester-
day. It was alleged that Levi
Hepburn was found on Thurs-
day, May 17, in possession of a
quantity of marijuana.

According to the prosecution,
Hepburn was found in posses-
sion of five grams of the drug.

Hepburn was arraigned
before Magistrate Renee McK-
ay at court six in Parliament

He was fined $500 after
pleading guilty to the drug

choke off this access lane.”

“It is therefore the govern-
ment’s intention to move swift-
ly in making sure that the base
in Inagua is fully operational
and staffed from which regular
patrols can be taken. We have
talked about this for too long.
Plans were in place in 2002 to
build this very important facili-
ty, and we will review and
update those plans as necessary
to effect this-important initia-
tive.”

He also touched on the prob-
lem of illegal immigration,
describing it as a “major threat
to the security of our nation.”

He pledged that he and Mrs
Campbell will work closely to
give policy direction to address
this problem.

“The inclusion of immigra-
tion into our National Security
Ministry will no doubt foster
optimal utilisation of our
resources, through the facilita-
tion of joint planning, joint
investigations and joint opera-.
tions to curb this problem.”

In addition to the base at
Inagua, he said, the government
is also committed to establishing
and maintaining a permanent
presence for the Defence Force
in the northern Bahamas, as
well as upgrading the facilities at
Coral Harbour.

This would include dredging
the harbour, the construction
of a new sea wall and the instal-
lation of a fuel farm.

Cheshire Home
residents appeal
to government

By ASHLEY THOMPSON

MEMBERS of the Centre
for Independent Living are
making an appeal to the
Ingraham administration to
be allowed to live in the
Cheshire Home until a new
facility can be built.

The president of the cen-
tre, Jerome Thompson, says
that he is merely asking for
Cheshire Home, a former res-
idence for disabled Bahami-
ans, to be allowed “to serve
the purpose it was intended
to serve”.

He noted that this would be
especially beneficial to those
of the group in wheelchairs,
as the home is only five min-
utes away from their jobs on
Dolphin Drive.

Evicted from the Cheshire
Home two years ago, its pre-
vious residents have formed
the Centre for Independent
Living in an effort to create a
new disabled friendly facility
for adult Bahamians.

The centre is a non-profit
organisation for physically dis-
abled Bahamian adults. It was
founded on October 25, 2005.

The purpose of the organi-
sation is to provide residen-
tial facilities to give persons
with disabilities in the
Bahamas the freedom to be
directly invcived with and in
charge of their own lives.

At the moment, the organ-
isation does not have any
facilities — and until something
can be built, the members say
they must continue to reside
in an East Street apartment
that has not been made dis-
abled friendly.

This apartment is far from
the Dolphin Drive workplace
of those in wheelchairs, and
it takes them an hour on busy
streets to wheel themselves to





Sunday School: 10am

work.

The board of this organisa-
tion consists of the men who
were formerly residents of the
Cheshire Home, as well as

. members of Gerry’s Kids

Charities.

Their first meeting was held
on Thursday night and they
soon plan to begin fundraising
in the hope of building a facil-
ity on a piece of property they
are trying to acquire on Dol-
phin Drive.

They have been helped by
Giorgio Baldacci in the plan-
ning and structural design of
the future facility.

But before beginning
fundraising, the organisation
is trying to make itself more
accessible to the public by
obtaining a vehicle and an
office.

The Chesire Home was an
independent living facility
officially opened on March 26,
1991 on Dolphin Drive.

The money was raised by
the Rotary Club of East Nas-
sau. Once opened the keys
were handed over to the Cen-
tral Anglican Deanery.

The home was given the
name Chesire Home under
the Leonard Cheshire Foun-
dation International, found-
ed by British World War II
veteran, Leonard Cheshire.

‘Many such homes have
been opened worldwide in
accordance with this man’s
dream of physically disabled
persons having the chance to
live with others and indepen-
dently.

The Cheshire Home was
closed in 2005 because the
management no longer had
the ability to fund the facility.

The former PLP govern-
ment said they wanted to turn
it into a home for disabled
children.

Toye TESTS

Numerologist: ‘My
phone’s blowing up’

“By TRIBUNE
"STAFF WRITER

> SCORES of Bahamians are
eager to find out more about
*numerologist Jerome Carter,
‘the man who predicted cate-
'gorically that the PLP would
‘lose the general election.

Since The Tribune published
further predictions from Mr
‘Carter earlier this week —
including a claim that the PLP
‘would be out of power for a
‘long time — the phone at his
‘Arizona home hasn’t stopped
ringing.

' “My phone is blowing up,”
the said yesterday. “People are
asking for info left and right.”

The Tribune has also received

several calls from readers anx-
ious to know more about Mr
‘Carter’s uncanny forecasting
‘talents.
’ One woman said: “I need to
speak to this guy about my own
life. I want to know what this
numbers thing is all about.”

Mr Carter’s predictions are
carried on radio stations across
America. And the announce-





ment of May 2 as the Bahamas
election date led him to warn
the PLP that by picking the sec-
ond day of the fifth month they
were bound to lose.

He said two-plus-five
equalled seven, which he
claimed was FNM leader
Hubert Ingraham’s lucky num-
ber, and a surefire pointer to
an FNM victory.

Some readers have expressed
concern about what they regard
as “satanic” powers, but Mr
Carter says all his numerical
prowess is religiously based.

“Everything in the universe
can be reduced to numbers,” he
said, “You cannot get through a
day without using numbers
unless you sleep all day. From
the moment you are born until

the day you die, you are a num- -

ber.”

Mr Carter said his under-
standing of numerology came
from an Ethiopian Jewish man
who married his aunt. “I attend-
ed Catholic school, attended
services at the Jewish syna-
gogue, and played the piano at
Holy Roller Baptist Church on

Abaco students explore Nassau

Sundays. I also occasionally
went to a Muslim mosque with
another aunt who was staying
with us at the time.

“My gift does not come from
the devil. Do you worship Satan
when you look at your
speedometer?

“Is it a sin or considered
breaking a commandment when
you are comparing prices in the
grocery store?

“Numerology involves using a
system God created for Earth.
Numerology uses numbers and
vibrations to help individuals
prosper both spiritually and
financially.”

He believes numbers can
even tell you if you are sleeping
with the right person.

In his latest political predic-
tions, Mr Carter has forecast a
successful term for Mr Ingra-
ham as prime minister, with the
PLP having no chance of forc-
ing another election next year.

He said the Bahamas was set
to prosper under the new gov-
ernment, with major improve-
ments in store for downtown
Nassau.



Central Abaco Primary students and teachers took in a Tourism and Social Studies Bus Safari dur-

ing a visit to the nation’s capital.

The safari is a two-hour educational excursion co-ordinated by the Ministry of Tourism.
’ The excursion features a dynamic presentation on tourism facts and figures.

It also includes a tour of Fort Fincastle and a visit to the House of Assembly for an overview on | how

the Bahamas’ government functions.

Meeting to assess making
CARICOM visas permanent

CARIBBEAN experts will meet in
Trinidad and Tobago next week to evaluate
the possible permanent application of CARI-
COM visas used during the World Cricket

Cup, when over 40,000 such visas were .

issued.

The meeting will issue a report on the sub-
ject to heads of government of 15 member
countries of CARICOM to convene in Bar-
bados next July.

The controversial decision has supporters
like the Council for Foreign Affairs of the
community that met in Belize this month
and opponents from other member coun-

tries.

The CARICOM Single Market and Econ-
omy (CSME) highlights the free movement
of people and services which has been oper-
ational since February 1, 2007.

The strategy is to extend that facility to
all the region alongside the CARICOM
passport, already in use in Grenada, Suri-
name, St Vincent and the Grenadines and St
Kitts and Nevis.

At a recent press conference, Prime Min-
ister Hubert Ingraham said the Bahamas
had no economic interest in the CSME, but
that countries like the Bahamas, Bermuda

and the Cayman Islands could become inter-
ested in co-operating on social issues, such as
health and education.

He said he had been in touch with the Bar-

bados prime minister, who is set to become,

CSME chairman in July. Mr Ingraham said
he expects the Caribbean to re-focus its
CSME agenda away from economic matters
and more towards social issues.

“They are things that places like the
Bahamas, and Bermuda, and the Caymans,
and Turks and Caicos could become inter-
ested in. And I got the impression that that is
what the incoming chairman proposes to do

to re-engage us in the process of discussion,
because the economic side of CSME is not a
matter in which the Bahamas has any inter-
est whatsoever,” he said.

The CSME battle raged on for months
during the early stages of the former Christie
administration, the government’s pro-CSME
stance drawing a backlash from opponents
who felt that the Bahamas would be inun-
dated with foreign workers once it signed
on to the accord.

Former Foreign Affairs Minister Fred
Mitchell was the main proponent of the
Bahamas joining the accord.

Venezuela TV station

loses licence battle

By FABIOLA SANCHEZ
Associated Press Writer

CARACAS, Venezuela (AP)
— Venezuela’s Supreme Court
has dismissed a challenge by an
opposition-aligned television
station seeking to remain on the
air despite the government’s
decision not to renew its license.

The Supreme Court of Jus-
tice, in a decision announced
late Thursday, declared inad-
missible the challenge by Radio
Caracas Television and its top
executive Marcel Granier. The
ruling is a setback for RCTV,
a channel critical of President
Hugo Chavez that is due to go
off the air at midnight May 27
when the government says its
license expires. ~

.The channel and its support-
ers argue Chavez is trying to
silence criticism, while the gov-
ernment says it will be replaced
by a public-service station and
that freedom of expression is
being respected.

Supreme Court president
Luisa Estella Morales said in a
statement that it is up to the
National Telecommunications
Commission to decide on the
issuing, renewal and revocation

of broadcast licenses. The court”
left open the possibility that the

channel could seek redress

through other legal means, and ~
other challenges are pending
before the court.

“Tt’s clear that the RCTV
case is still in dispute. We are
going to continue the fight
before, during and after May
27,” Oswaldo Quintana, a
lawyer for RCTV, said in a
statement.

Chavez announced in
December that the government
would not renew the station’s
license, accusing it of supporting
a failed 2002 coup against him.
The government also accuses
RCTV of violating broadcast
laws, and Chavez says it pro-
duces “grotesque shows” that
promote consumerism and vio-
lence. .

The government is creating a
state-funded foundation to
launch a new public service
channel in place of RCTV.

Chavez opponents, who plan
a march in favor of RCTV on
Saturday, argue that the public
service channel will simply turn
out pro-government propagan-
da. Government officials deny
it.

SIGNED AS APPROVED ON BEHALF OF THE BOARD:

Date ‘

Notes to the Balance Sheet
31 December 2006 ‘

1. Incorporation, Business Activity and Group Structure

Pictet Overseas Trust Corporation Limited (the Company) is incorporated under the
Companies Act, 1992, of the Commonwealth of The Bahamas and is licenced under The
Banks and Trust Companies Regulation Act, 2000, to carry on trust business within The
Bahamas. The Company is also empowered to act as an authorised agent to receive
securities into deposit on behalf of customers. The address of its registered office is Bayside
Executive Park, West Bay Street and Blake Road, New Providence, Bahamas.

The Company is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Pictet Bank & Trust Limited (the Parent), a .

bank incorporated and licenced in The Bahamas, which is one of a group of entities (the
Pictet Group) controlled by the partners of Pictet & Cie, Geneva, a private banking
partnership organised under the laws of Switzerland. Pictet & Cie and other entities directly

- or indirectly controlled or significantly influenced by the partners of Pictet & Cie are referred
to as related parties. All significant balances and arrangements with related parties are
disclosed in either the balance sheet or these explanatory notes.

2. . Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

me

Significant accounting policies applied in the preparation of the balance sheet are set out
below. These policies have been consistently applied to all the years presented, unless
otherwise stated.

(a) Basis of presentation

The Company prepares its balance sheet in accordance with International Financial
Reporting Standards (IFRS) and under the historical cost convention.

The application of amendments to published accounting standards and interpretations
that became effective 1 January 2006 did not result in substantial changes to the
Company’s accounting policies. With the exception of the new disclosure
requirements of IFRS 7 Financial Instruments: Disclosures, and amendments to [AS
1 Presentation of Financial Statements regarding capital disclosures, that become
effective k January 2007, the application of new standards and interpretations issued
but not yet effective will not have a material impact on the Company’s balance sheet
in the period of initial application. On adoption, IFRS 7 will supersede IAS 30 and
the disclosure requirements of IAS 32. :

(b) Use of estimates

The preparation of the balance sheet in conformity with IFRS requires management to
make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and
liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities as of the date of the balance
sheet. Actual amounts could differ from those estimates.

(c) Trustee fees receivable

Trustee fees receivable are recognised initially at fair value and subsequently
measured at amortised cost, less any provision that may be necessary for impairment.
A provision for impairment is established when there is objective evidence that the
Company will not be able to collect all amounts according to the original terms of the
receivable. The provision is the difference between the carrying amount and present
value of estimated cash flows discounted at the original effective interest rate. Trustee
fees receivable are typically supported by assets held by the Company as trustee;
accordingly, the Company has not established a provision for impairment.

(d) Fiduciary accounts and assets under administration

The Company acts as trustee and in other fiduciary capacities that result in the holding
or placing of assets on behalf of individuals, trusts and other institutions. These assets
and income arising thereon are excluded from the balance sheet, as they do not belong
to the Company.

(e) Translation of foreign currencies

The Company’s functional and presentation currency is the Swiss Franc (CHF), as it
best reflects the economic substance of underlying events and transactions relevant to
the Company. Foreign currency transactions are translated into the functional
currency using the exchange rates prevailing as of the dates of the transactions.
Foreign exchange gains and losses resulting from the settlement of such transactions
and from the translation at year-end exchange rates of monetary assets and liabilities
denominated in foreign currencies are recognised in the income statement.

(f) Income and expense recognition
Trustee and other fees from the administration of trusts are recognised when earned
based on the applicable service agreements, generally when billed to clients. The
Company’s billing cycle is such that fees charged to clients are usually billed and
collected in-the same accounting period that they are earned. Interest income is

recognised using the effective interest method.

All other income and expenses are recorded on the accrual basis.

(g) Corresponding figures

Where necessary, corresponding figures are adjusted to conform with changes in
presentation in the current year.

od

(a) Liquidity risk

This is the risk that the Company might not have the necessary liquidity to meet its
contractual obligations. The Company has minimal exposure to liquidity risk because
its normal business activities are such that they generally do not result in material
liabilities. If necessary, the Company may arrange to obtain, on relatively short
notice, credit facilities from other entities in the Pictet Group to assist with its
liquidity requirements.

4. Related Party Arrangements
(a) Administration and service support

As part of the restructuring of the Company’s operations, the Parent arranged for
personnel to be dedicated to the management and administration of the Company’s
affairs. In 2006, the Company entered into an agreement with the Parent whereby the
Company is charged an annual fee in respect of the cost of accounting and
administrative services provided by the Parent and associated with the conduct of the
Company’s business. The agreement is renewable annually. In previous years, the
Company received these management. and administration services from the Parent
without charge.

. (b) Cash at bank - Parent

Demand and. call deposits with the Parent do not earn interest.

5. _ Fair Value of Financial Instruments

Financial instruments utilised by the Company primarily include those types of recorded
financial assets and liabilities shown in the balance sheet. The majority of the Company’s
financial instruments are either short-term in nature or have interest rates that automatically
reset to market rates on a periodic basis. Accordingly, the estimated fair value is not
significantly different from the carrying value for each major category of the Company’s
recorded financial assets and liabilities.

Disaster strikes

with fire at sea

This week, In Days Gone By
looks back at the burning of the
Nassau-bound vessel Yarmouth
Castle, the worst disaster in
North American waters since
the Noronic burned and sank
in Toronto Harbour with the
loss of up to 139 lives in 1949.

Critically-injured people were
taken by helicopter from the
cruise ship Bahama Star to Nas-
sau hospitals.

Eighty-seven people went
down with the ship, and three of
the rescued passengers later
died at hospitals, bringing the
final death toll to 90.

Of the dead, only two were
crewmembers: stewardess Phyl-
lis Hall and Dr Lisardo Diaz-
Toorens, the ship's physician.
While some bodies were recov-
ered, most were lost with the
ship.

Yarmouth Castle left Miami
for Nassau on November 12,

’ 176 crewmen aboard — a total of

552 people. The ship was due
to arrive in Nassau the next day.
The captain on the voyage was
35-year-old Byron Voutsinas.

Shortly before lam on
November 13, a mattress stored
too close to a lighting circuit in
a,storage room 610, caught fire.
The room was filled with mat-
tresses and paint cans, which
fed the flames.

At around lam, a badly

burned passenger emerged .

from a stairway and collapsed
on the deck. Crewmen who
rushed to the man's aid found
the stairwell filled with smoke
and flames. Captain Voutsinas
was immediately notified of the
fire by the watch officer. The
captain ordered the second
mate to sound the alarm on the
ship's horn, but the bridge went
up in flames before the alarm
could: be sounded. The: ship's

off duty, found the radio shack

point, Yarmouth Castle was 120
miles east of Miami and 60
miles northwest of Nassau.

The ship's fire alarms did not
sound and the sprinkler system
did not activate. Passengers
were awakened by screaming
and running in the corridors as
people frantically tried to find
lifejackets.

The fire swept through the

‘ship's superstructure at great

speed, driven by the ship’s nat-
ural ventilation system. The
flames rose vertically through
the stairwells, fueled by the
wood paneling, wooden decks
and layers of fresh paint on the
walls. Many passengers had to
break windows and squeeze
through portholes to escape
their burning cabins. The whole
front half of the ship was quick-
ly engulfed, causing passengers
and crew to flee to the stern of
the ship. Several of Yarmouth

Castle's lifeboats burned before

‘ they could be launched. -

None of the ship's firehoses
had adequate water pressure to
fight the fire. One of the hoses

had even been cut: Crewmen~ ~

also had difficulty launching the

. lifeboats. The ropes used to

lower the boats had been cov-
ered in thick coats of paint,
causing them to jam in the
winches. Even the boats that
were successfully lowered had
no oarlocks, and had to be pad-
dled like canoes. By the end,
only six of the 13 lifeboats were
launched.

There were tales of both
courage and cowardice among
the crew. Many fled the ship
without helping the passengers.
Others pulled passengers from
the windows of their cabins and
directed them to rope ladders
on the side of the ship. Some
crew members had to physical-

NOT INCLUDING SEA FREIGHT

HARRISON THOMPSON
PERMANENT SECRETARY



e The Bahama Star comes into New Providence

Castle, he ordered the ship
ahead at full speed. Bahama
Star radioed the Coast Guard
at 2.20am.

The first ship on the scene
was Finnpulp. The first of
Yarmouth Castle's lifeboats,
which was only half-full, rowed
to the freighter. Captain Lehto
was angered to find that only
four of the people in the boat
were passengers. The other 20
were crewmembers who fled at
the first alarm, among them
Captain Voutsinas.

The four passengers were
taken aboard the freighter.
Voutsinas claimed that he had
come to Finnpulp to request a
radio distress call. Lehko turned
Voutsinas and the crewmen
back to Yarmouth Castle say-
ing, "Go back and look for
more survivors." The next two
lifeboats launched from
Yarmouth Castle contained

a motorboat, which towed some
of the boats to Bahama Star.

Coast Guard pilots in four
planes flying 4,000 feet over-
head later said they were near-
ly engulfed by the smoke and
flames, which could be seen for
miles.

All survivors had been pulled
aboard Finnpulp and Bahama
Star by 4am, by which time
Yarmouth Castle's hull was

‘glowing red.

The water around the ship
was visibly boiling. Just before
6am, Yarmouth Castle rolled
over onto its port side. There
was a roar of steam and burst-
ing boilers, and it sank beneath
the surface at 6.03am.

Bahama Star rescued 240
passengers and 133 crewmen.
The Finnpulp rescued 51 pas-
sengers and 41 crewmen. Both
ships arrived in Nassau on
November 13.

zivoiding the heart loser, declarer
ruffed a club at trick two, hoping the
¢ jueen would fall on this round or the
rtext time clubs were led.

South then cashed the ace of
spades, learning to his horror that
\WNest had two apparently certain
trump tricks. Undaunted, he played
fior the only distribution that would
p ermit the contract to be made.

‘At trick four, he led a heart to the
a ce and ruffed the nine of clubs. Next
he cashed three rounds of diamonds
ending in dummy. He then ruffed the
jéick of clubs.

‘West by now had been shorn of
all his clubs and diamonds. And
when South next cashed the king of
hearts, West ran dry in that suit also.
V Vith three tricks to go, West’s hand
c onsisted of the Q-10-9 of spades,
wybile declarer had only the K-J of
spades and six of hearts.

Having won the first 10 tricks,
S outh now led the six of hearts, and
siuddenly the three losers he had
started with dwindled to one. West
wvas forced to trump the heart, though
il: was his partner’s trick, and had no
choice but to return a spade into
Siouth’s K-J.

‘ Thus South, in one motion, found
a;.way to telescope three losers into
cme, and a bewildered West could do
n}o less than offer his congratulations
cy a well-played slam. n

TAURUS -— Apr 21/May 21
Don’t put off till tomorrow what you -

in your mouth. You’ve been close with
this person for a while and wonder if
you should end the friendship.

LEO — Jul 23/Aug 23

If you’re aggravated about your
financial situation, Leo, do some-
‘thing about it. It just may be time to
‘toss away those credit cards and start
saving for a few months.

VIRGO — Aug 24/Sept 22
You're feeling a lot of pressure to
make changes in your personal life,
Virgo. However, if you’re happy in

PM saves vendor

Intervenes to
stop move from
Rawson Square

By ALISON LOWE
Tribune Staff Reporter

AN alleged case of victimisa-
tion was defused yesterday after
Prime Minister Hubert Ingra-
ham (pictured below) stepped
in personally to thwart an
attempt to remove a news ven-
dor from Rawson Square.

The vendor, Bertrand

. Thurston, was first asked earli-

er this week to pack up his news
stand on the edge of the public
square.

He told The Tribune that he
had good reason to believe the
move stemmed from a personal
vendetta against him by a senior
government official.

However, at the 11th hour, it
is claimed that Mr Ingraham
personally stepped in and told
the official "not to mess" with
the vendor
and his liveli-

hood.
1 M r
| Thurston —
1 who has

operated his
yellow news
| stand in the

area for
about 10
years — said
the saga
began when
he was
approached



by the civil
servant's secretary earlier this
week and told that "Mr Ingra-
qam required that he move"
‘rom the popular spot.

Later, at a meeting with the
secretary in her office, Mr
Thurston was informed that she
aad been directed by her boss
to request his removal as the
Ministry of Tourism was carry-
ing out a "beautification pro-
ject" in the downtown area,
which would encompass the
square.

This information appeared to
be corroborated by a tape
recording, allegedly of that
meeting, heard by The Tribune.

Questions were raised, how-
ever, When a conversation with
officials at the Ministry of
Tourism proved that no such
project was underway, said the
vendor. This was later con-
firmed in a conversation
between The Tribune and
Gabriella Fraser, director of
communications at the ministry.

While minister Tommy Turn-
quest claimed the government
does have a project underway,
when asked whether this par-
ticular senior official would usu-
ally be the one to issue such
directives relating to Rawson
Square, he said: "I have no
idea."

Seeking to allay concerns,

however, he said: "There's only
one government. It doesn't mat-

. ter who in the government does
it, but there's only one govern--

ment."

The minister said the official
may have been the wrong per-
son to issue the directive, but
added that his involvement in
attempts to move Mr Thurston
was "done innocently in my
view."

While stressing that Mr
Thurston should not be vic-
timised, the minister continued
to stress that the square is "no
place for a news stand."

The official involved declined
to comment.

Unexpectedly, the drama fur-
ther escalated when Mr
Thurston alleged the official
himself showed up at the stall,
asking Mr Thurston to "shut it
down and go to social services."

When Mr Thurston produced
his tape-recorder, the official
scurried away, he said.

Police Commissioner Paul
Farquharson said Mr Thurston
was not being victimised but
merely being asked to relocate.
Nonetheless, he was adamant
that Mr Thurston would be
required to move.

"There is a general clean-up
downtown and persons in
charge of those areas have
asked me to relocate Mr
Bertrand Thurston," he
explained.

However, asked who had told
him that Mr Thurston should
be removed from the square,
the Commissioner responded:
"I don't think I need to answer
that."

Asked whether the official in
question would usually be
known to give such directives,
Commissioner Farquharson
said: "I don't have any interest
in that at all."

Meanwhile, in a fastalitct
attempt to save the business
they have run for ten years, Mr
Thurston and his wife contacted
the Prime Minister's Office to
ask whether Mr Ingraham him-
self had been behind the origi-
nal request for his removal.

It was at this point that Mr
Ingraham is said to have driven
to the office of the official in
question and told him "not to
mess" with Mr Thurston and
his stall.

"When we got to the Com-
missioner, at first he had said
he wanted to speak to us about
being relocated, but when we
got into the meeting he was like,
‘OK - y'all can stay'," said
Thurston. "He said it was a mis-
understanding."

Mr Thurston's wife added of
Mr Ingraham:."He's really
impressive. He dealt with the
matter quickly."

Anna Nicole net worth
estimated at $10-$15m.



ANNA Nicole Smith’s real net worth was last
night estimated at between $10-15 million by a US
investigator who has been working on her case for
the last six months.

Declared personal assets of only $10,000 and a
Los Angeles property worth around $700,000
mentioned in her will are only a small part of
her true fortune, the investigator said.

It was felt the bulk of her money could have
been stashed in a holding company called Crack-
er Incorporated, which US sources say could be
registered in the Cayman Islands.

“In my estimation, her current assets should be
around $10 million to $15 million. A company
called Cracker Incorporated was set up at around
the time the boat was bought in February,” said
the investigator.

“My belief is that most of Anna Nicole’s mon-
ey is in offshore accounts, probably in the Cayman
Islands and elsewhere.”

The comments came in an exclusive interview
with The Tribune following shocked reaction to
the modest assets declared in the late cover girl’s
will.

A company called Hot Smoochie Lips, set up to
handle earnings from Anna Nicole’s modelling
career, is now apparently defunct. But Cracker
Incorporated was reportedly established shortly
before Anna Nicole died in February during a trip
to Florida to buy a boat.

Speaking with The Tribune yesterday, Mr

g fury at
alarm
failure

By BRENT DEAN
and ASHLEY THOMPSON

ZNS employees were furious
yesterday when the TV station’s
fire alarm failed during an
emergency evacuation.

Fire trucks were alerted at
around 12.45pm as the smell of
smoke permeated the news-
room.

When The Tribune arrived
on the scene, dozens of employ-
ees were standing outside the
facility.

One said that, while at work
in the building, he saw other
employees evacuating, was told
of the possible fire, and subse-
quently followed the crowd.

Another employee decried °
working conditions at the
broadcasting corporation.

“Nothing working in the
building. Nothing,” she said.
“They get us in the building
with nothing working — no fire
alarm.”

The angry employee added
that some doors were locked,
raising questions about safety
if there were a real fire.

In giving the all-clear, after
an hour-long investigation
involving two fire trucks and
more than a dozen firefighters,
Supt Jeffrey Deleveaux said a
mechanical malfunction in an
air-conditioning unit was
responsible for the smell of
smoke.

“When we arrived, there was
the strong odour of smoke in
the newsroom area. We pro-
ceeded to check all of the pos-
sible areas — light ballast, the
air-conditioning system. We lat-
er discovered that a belt that
drives the compressor for the
air-conditioning system was
damaged, causing the smoke to
go up through the system in the
newsroom area,” he said.

Everything was back to nor-
mal and there was no damage
beyond the belt in the air-con-
ditioning unit, he added.

Mr Deleveaux confirmed that
no alarm was activated, but sug-
gested that the intensity of the
smoke may have been at sucha
low level that it would not have
been picked up by smoke detec-
tors.

However, working smoke
alarms can be triggered by a
small amount of smoke. If the
smell of smoke was strong
enough to evacuate the build-
ing, and have the fire authorities
called, alarms in the building
may need to be inspected, said
staff.

Attempts to contact general
manager Anthony Foster were
unsuccessful.

Concern on
Royal Oasis

eness’

she had expected, after two and
a half years of uncertainty.
Harcourt Development Ltd,
an Irish development company,
announced that it had contract-
ed to purchase the Royal Oasis
Resort in Freeport. The com-
pany stated that it had agreed
terms with Lehman Brothers
Holdings and was keen to begin
restoration of the resort.
Since the closure of the
resort in 2004, more than half of
the businesses in the Interna-
tional Bazaar have closed, and
those that remained open have
downsized their operations and
staff to keep their doors open.
Ms Thomas, operator of
Island Galleria, is among the

‘small percentage of merchants

who have struggled to keep
their businesses open at the
Bazaar.

She said many storeowners
have grown weary because
many initial announcements of
a sale for Royal Oasis never
materialised. She thanked the
residents for their support dur-
ing difficult times.

“T have read several times in _

the newspapers that the deal is
about to be close .. . and I’ve
read (Friday’s) article with great
care, and the wording (in the
latest announcement) leads me
to believe that the sale isn’t
absolutely final,” she said.
“We were hearing rumours
prior to the election that the
hotel was actually sold, and that
negotiations have been finalised
and documents signed. But, Fri-
day’s article didn’t leave me 100
per cent sure that negotiations
were complete and that any-

‘thing had been signed. It is a

little bit disturbing because we
thought that that had been
done,” said Ms Thomas.

Tourism Minister Neko
Grant could not confirm the
sale, but said he believes that
the reopening of Royal Oasis
would revitalise the tourism
industry in Grand Bahama.

“J am not able to comment
on the statement (by Harcourt)
as I have not seen it, but I can
say that the government is
appreciative of what this
reopening can do to revitalise
the tourism product, as well as
the Grand Bahama economy.

So we welcome the opening as
soon as possible,” he said.

Chris Payne, vice president
of International Bazaar Own-
er’s Association, welcomes the
news, but said that everything is
still very vague at moment as
to what Harcourt’s plans are for
the Bazaar.

“T think that from the Bazaar
owners’ perspective it is good
news, and to know that finally
the purchase is being complet-
ed, or in the process. of being
completed, must bode well in
terms of the International
Bazaar.

“How exactly it would
impact the Bazaar, we don’t yet
know. But I would imagine we
will be having some discussions
with the Harcourt Group in the
foreseeable future of perhaps
how we can work together.

“Everything is very vague at
the moment in that we, in the
Bazaar, don’t know the inten-
tions of Harcourt regarding the

Bazaar. I think we certainly .

understand their interest in
developing the whole area, but
again, we don’t know the
details. But, we understand
that part of development
would encompass the Bazaar,
or the property on which the
Bazaar stands,” he said.

Mr Payne, owner of Paradise
Jewels in the Bazaar, said it has
been a long, hard road for mer-
chants at the International
Bazaar.

“It’s been two and a half

~ years of uncertainty and many’

initial announcements as we all
know. We are hoping for some-
thing concrete to come out of
this, as I am sure do many of
the ex-employees of Royal
Oasis.”

Mr. Payne said it is still too
premature to say whether those
former store owners will return
to reopen their businesses.

“T am sure that will be case,
but until we speak to Harcourt
about how they envisage the
overall concept of the Bazaar, it
is a bit premature to say that. If
the Bazaar stays in its existing
form, I don’t think it would be
difficult to get them to all come
back, but we also expect there
will be interest by new parties,”
he said.

expressed over witnesses at the

US sources believe both Jack

Jackie Hatten should be called
to give evidence.

Harding was consulted by

year-old left California for the
Bahamas last September to see

his newborn sister, Dannielynn.
He died at his mother’s hospital
bedside the morning after his
arrival in Nassau.

Harding has already said on
cable television that Daniel was
afraid of Howard K Stern,
Anna Nicole’s lawyer, who is
still living at Horizons on the
Eastern Road, and concerned
about his own relationship with
his mother.

One source said: “Harding is
willing to travel to the Bahamas
to give evidence. Jackie has
already been to Nassau. She
had known Anna and Daniel
forever, and could give evidence
about their behaviour.”

It is also thought that Ray
Martino, who looked after
Daniel when Anna Nicole and
Stern left the US for Nassau last
summer, should be called. He
would tell the inquest that
Daniel had no history of drug-
taking, the source claimed.

Meanwhile, US sources close
to the Anna Nicole story say
Stern has applied for residency
in the Bahamas, but this has not
been officially confirmed.

FREEPORT - The current
tourism promotion and adver-
tising campaign is inadequate
to address Grand Bahama
Island’s needs, according to
Neko Grant.

In his first public appear-
ance in Grand Bahama since
being sworn in as Minister of
Tourism, Mr Grant said that
there is little awareness in key
markets of what the island has
to offer.

“In fact, one can say Grand
Bahama is practically invisi-
ble in the marketplace. We
therefore need a bigger bang
for our buck in our offshore
promotions,” he said on
Thursday at the tourism office
in Freeport.

Mr Grant also noted that
there is an urgent need for
increased airlift, sustained
cruise business and new
resorts.

During 2006, he said,

217,431 passengers came to

‘Freeport on a total 6,927

flights with average load fac-
tor of 50 per cent.

A total of 174,869 passen-
gers came by cruise vessel
compared to 297,652 passen-
gers in 2005. Mr Grant said
there is also the need to devel-
op a strategy for sustainable





cruise business between Flori-
da and Grand Bahama.

The tourism minister said
that additional new invest-
ments in beachfront resort
properties are needed to help
boost tourism arrivals and
revitalise the hotel industry.

“This means recouping
existing room losses while
attracting airlift necessary to
support established as well as
the additional anticipated
demand of the island’s
planned investments,” he said.

Minister Grant said Grand
Bahama will remain a priori-
ty of the government and will
receive the urgent attention
of his ministry.



Building
material
thefts rise

By DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport Reporter

FREEPORT - Grand
Bahama Police have reported
a recent increase in theft of
building materials at various
construction and residential
building sites on the island.

Chief Superintendent Basil
Rahming said that police have
recovered a significant amount
of stolen property and have
made several arrests in recent
weeks.

He noted that a greater per-





centage of thefts are occurring
at residential building sites
located in remote, or sparsely

populated areas, particularly -

during dark evening hours.

Mr Rahming said that
builders should take adequate
measures to secure building
materials while left unattend-
ed, by installing fencing, proper
lighting, guard dogs, and secu-
rity patrols.

Even though the economy is
relatively slow, the construction
industry is booming on Grand
Bahama.



Pastor granted

IN his fight to have an alleged
strip club closed, a local pastor
has been granted a new hearing
to exclusively consider the oper-
ating licences of the establishment,
potentially moving him one step
closer to permanently shutting
down a place he regards as a moral
blight.

The Rev Cedric Moss, who has
led the fight to have the out-west
club closed since December, 2005,
made these remarks in a press
release after his latest hearing in
front of the Licensing Authority
Board.

Rev Moss maintains that the

FREEPORT - With the
island’s economy still in a down-
turn, Grand Bahamians are
hoping that the FNM govern-
ment will take steps to reduce
the high cost of living and doing
business.

This was one of the many
election promises the FNM had
made in Grand Bahama, which
has suffered greatly over the
past five years due to the clo-
sure of a major resort and many
small businesses.

Residents have put their trust
in the FNM, and Prime Minister
Hubert Ingraham, who has
promised once again to turn-
around Grand Bahama’s weak-
ened economy, reduce unem-
ployment, and create jobs for
Bahamians.

Grand Bahama experienced
tremendous economic growth
under the first FNM govern-
ment between 1992 and 2002,
as result of the billions of the
dollars in investments in
Freeport.

Today, Freeport residents are
struggling to survive in a
depressed economy, coupled
with a high cost of living.

Now, residents say, rent, elec-
tricity, food, and gas prices have
skyrocketed.

Many have been forced to
leave the island in search of
jobs, and others have lost their
businesses, homes, vehicles, and
property over the last five years.

Freeport resident Bernard
Dawkins is pleased that the
FNM government has decided
to create a ministry to deal
specifically with Grand Bahama
affairs.

“Grand Bahama _ and

Freeport are very different from

New Providence, and I com-
mend the government for cre-
ating a ministry to deal with
issues for Grand Bahama,” he
said.

Mr Dawkins believes that a
major issue confronting resi-
dents is the high cost of living
and operating a business in
Freeport.

“The rent and utility prices
are too high here, and we also
need to get the prices in the
supermarkets and wholesale
stores down, as well as the cost
of health care reduced,” he said.

Mr Dawkins, who is a chef
by profession, said that it is
extremely difficult operating a
business in Freeport, and com-
plained that business licence

“The board has finally decided
to hold a special sitting to exclu-
sively consider my request,” Rev
Moss said.

“In my view, the way this mat-
ter has been, and continues to be
handled by the board, proves that
a majority of the board members
are indifferent to my allegations,”
he said.

“Further, it is my view that there
seems to be an intentional ‘turning
a blind eye’ to the abundance of
documents and information pre-
sented to the board, and that is in
the public domain, all of which
substantiate these claims.”

Rev Moss publicly challenged

High living costs hit

fees are too high.

“The licence fees alone kill
you, and on top of that you
have overhead expenses. And
so something needs to be done
to get the (Grand Bahama Port
Authority) to reduce its busi-
ness licence fees, and the cost of
utilities to facilitate businesses
in Grand Bahama,” he said.

“T had a business and wanted
to go back to it, but when you
look at what is it going to cost

you, it is not worth it because |

some days you can’t pay staff,
or buy inventory because every-
thing in Grand Bahama is just
too costly.”

In Freeport, motorists are
also burdened with high gas
prices, which have soared to
nearly $5 per gallon.

Tourism arrivals in Freeport
are down and residents are
depending on the FNM gov-
ernment to revitalise the island’s
tourism industry.

“I am so glad that Grand
Bahama has gotten another
minister of tourism; we did have
it with Obie Wilchcombe, but
he didn’t seem to push Grand
Bahama,” said Mr Dawkins.

“The International Bazaar is
dead and Port Lucaya is not
doing that well either — the busi-

the board’s chairman, Louis
Hanchell, to defend his and board-
*s actions surrounding the club.

“] believe that the board’s chair-
man is obliged to provide an
explanation regarding the reason
that this matter was apparently
ignored until this year, and why
it is taking so long for them to
make a decision one way or the
other. I maintain that the longer
this matter drags on, the more one
is forced to wonder why seeming-
ly preferential treatment is being
given to the club and its opera-
tors,” he said.

When contacted by The Tri-
bune, Mr Hanchell declined to
speak publicly regarding Rev

nesses there are starved for
tourists,” he said.

Mr Dawkins said that many
persons were forced to leave
the island when the Royal Oasis
closed.

rounding the controversy.

Though the club is widely
known as a venue for exotic danc-
ing, the vindication of the strip-
pers and staff of the now defunct
Butterfly Club in 2005, on similar
charges, raises questions as to
whether or not nude dancing is
illegal in The Bahamas.

And, the fact that the club has
remained open, despite possibly
being in contravention of the law,
may suggest that, like gambling,
many Bahamians have a more per-
missive attitude towards nude
dancing. The new hearing regard-
ing the club’s licence is scheduled
for June 6 at 3pm.

A handshake closes the past

JEWISH American veteran Shep Wald-
man knew exactly what he would do when he
came face to face with the former enemy at
the Eagle’s Nest, Hitler’s mountain retreat in
Berchtesgaden, Germany.

Approaching a German veteran equally
burdened by age and war memories, the for-
mer U.S. Army sergeant let out a friendly
greeting: “Comrade,” he said.

“Comrade,” pondered Alois Wuerzer,
struggling with the English, a puzzled look on
his face. Then his weary eyes lit up.

“Kamerad,” he repeated — which in Ger-
man also means “friend.”

Weathered hands stretched out, and one of
the past century’s bitterest divides was
bridged with a hearty handshake.

“Fortunately, we survived it all,” said
Wuerzer, 85, his ruddy cheeks shining as the
two sized each other up amid the pristine
peaks of the Bavarian Alps.

The men were brought together by The
Greatest Generations Foundation of Den-
ver, which seeks to give veterans the oppor-
tunity to visit old battlegrounds. Arranging a
meeting with German vets was controver-
sial, as was moving deep into Germany — a
journey that chilled some of the 23 Americans
and Canadians in the group.

Standing at the Eagle’s Nest, another Jew-
ish American veteran could not bring himself
to join in the reconciliation.

“I was not going to get involved in that,”
said former Pfc. Cy Marmelstein, who had
already taken a big emotional step by enter-
ing Germany again for the first time since
World War II.

The encounter at the Eagle Nest took place
May 12, and the veterans had already toured
England, Normandy, Belgium and Luxem-
bourg before heading to southeastern Ger-
many — among thousands of U.S. veterans
visiting Europe ahead of the June 6 anniver-
sary of the D-Day invasion of 1944.

Marmelstein, in his 80s, has long controlled
his feelings. But being in Germany again and
visiting Adolf Hitler’s mountain redoubt
brought his anguish to the surface.

“Peace with the people? It is hard,” he
whispered. “I know they are not from the
same generation, but it is a hard thing,” he
said, explaining he had relatives who died in
the Holocaust.

Marmelstein’s attitude largely stems from
the events of April 13, 1945, when he walked
into Buchenwald concentration camp two
days after it was liberated by the U.S. Army.

There, soldiers found some 21,000 starving
survivors and piles of corpses, some partially
burned; the Nazi SS and their helpers had
fled. About 56,000 people had died or been
slain in the camp.

“Buchenwald was the primary scar,”
Marmelstein said. “You can see it on TV but

once you were there with the smells, it is
indescribable. It has always been with me. It
is not in the forefront of my mind, but it is
there.” ,

After the war, Marmelstein sold air condi-
tioning in Florida before going into business
selling marble. He now lives in Pembroke
Pines retirement community in Florida.

There would be one constant, he said. “Per-
sonally, I would never, and I haven’t to my
knowledge, purchased German goods.”

Waldman’s contact with the Holocaust was
less direct, although he said he knew Jews
who were persecuted before the war.

“For two years, the rabbi, it was all he
spoke about. It didn’t quite register at that
moment. I could not visualize it,” he said,
remembering his teenage days in Denver.

He volunteered for the Army in 1943 and
was sent to Europe. Near the end of the war,
he found himself in a German village in
street-to-street combat. Stepping around a
corner, he suddenly stood face to face with a
German soldier who was even more stunned.

“T saw him, I had him, he was meat as far as
I was concerned,” Waldman, 83, remem-
bered. “His eyes popped, and that poor kid
was shivering and shaking. I said ’I can’t kill
him. No way I can kill a young man like
that.”

Waldman told him to drop the gun and
run. The German did. Even though Wald-
man, then only 19, later killed a German in
hand-to-hand combat, his compassion never
left him. That made it easier to make peace
with himself, he said, and any enmity toward
the Germans slowly left him.

“JT have gone through that,” Waldman said
of,coming to terms with the horrors of war
and the Holocaust. “It took a long time, prob-
ably 20 years. Now, no more nightmares.”

But time has not dulled his awareness of
what Jews faced under Hitler.

The Eagle’s Nest, jutting out into the
mountain air at 6,017 feet, has been turned
into a visitors’ centre with a restaurant, ter-
races and souvenir shop. Little reminds peo-
ple of the dark past, when Hitler was plotting
war.

On his last day in Germany, he went to a
commemoration at the Dachau concentra-
tion camp, and read the Kaddish, the Jewish
memorial prayer for the dead.

“T am glad I went,” Waldman said.

The handshake also left its mark in Kiss-
legg, Bavaria, where Wuerzer, a former
senior non-commissioned officer in the
Wehrmacht, is enjoying retirement.

“I was so totally surprised” by the hand-
shake, Wuerzer said. “They are good peo-
ple. It is good for two enemies to talk to one
another.”

EDITORIAL/LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

My personal
empathy with
Mrs Christie

EDITOR, The Tribune.

On Thursday, May 17, 2007, I
read with dismay and concern, a

. Tribune article concerning a

shooting that took place at the
residence of Mr Perry Christie’s
mother-in-law. In the article,
The Tribune reported that Mrs
Bernadette Christie “expressed
her profound displeasure at the
way in which the matter was
being handled by the police” as
Mrs Christie felt that there was
a “lack of interest” on the part



Dasa

of certain officers. I can cer-
tainly empathize with her frus-
tration, as I recently lost my
youngest son, Jamieson. On
December 17, 2006, Jamieson
was strangled to death on Par-
adise Island. Despite conclusive
medical evidence, the police
have still not classified my son’s

death as a homicide. The so-
called “investigation” has been
stagnant for months, and I can-
not even get the police to return
my phone calls. It seems as if
law and order have ceased to
exist in The Bahamas and the
rampant crime that plagues our
streets will eventually destroy
our wonderful country.

GEORGE DAMIANOS

Losing paradise
to our pollution

EDITOR, The Tribune.

AS a long term “temporary”
residents of New Providence
due to work commitments, my
wife and I have come to enjoy

many of the advantages of living

in Nassau. Family and friends
are envious; and so they should

be; it’s the Bahamas.

We consider ourselves as
“locals”; and as locals we deal
with the frustrations of living
here, such as the out of control
traffic congestion, hurricane
shutters and the unbelievable,
un-policed, peace shattering din
of the Sunday night Motorcy-
cle Grand Prix. While one
remains frustrated, there is
always the many positive
aspects of living here to soothe
away: such irritations, such as
the friendliness of the people
and the clear warm waters.

The-one thing that we strug-
gle to come to any terms with is
the proliferation of garbage
across this lovely island and
more specifically in the waters
surrounding it. Perhaps unno-
ticed by the tourists whose
immediate surroundings are
undoubtedly carefully mani-
cured and who we doubt are
the prime perpetrators anyway,
rubbish is strewn everywhere
to be eventually scavenged by
marauding packs of dogs, hap-
hazardly picked up by garbage
contractors or washed out to
sea.

We are fortunate enough to
live right on the beach. Warm
evenings and glorious sunsets
are simply magic. Each day, in
an attempt to “do our bit” to

keep the island (and planet)
beautiful, we gather on average
a trash can full of rubbish from
our section of the beach.
Garbage that has either been
washed up during the night, or
that has been mindlessly dis-
carded by persons enjoying the
beach during the day.

This litter comprises anything
from beer bottles (Heineken
seems to be the favourite), plas-

‘tic cups, building materials, life

jackets (two so far — no sign of
owners!), broken glass, Ken-
tucky Fried wrappings, plastic
bags (the standard practice here
of doubie bagging everything is
in itself unfathomable) to bro-
ken glass and hypodermic
syringes.

The beach quickly becomes
a veritable minefield especial-
ly for any toddlers.

With the weather warming
up, and the beaches becoming
more inviting (especially “ours”
because it’s litter free) more
families are attracted to enjoy
the natural beauty of the island.

Yesterday was no exception.
A number of large families
gathered and spent a carefree
afternoon by the sea. It was
obvious that any concern for
the environment was not at the
forefront of their minds. Beer
(Heineken) was drunk in copi-
ous quantities, with the empties
then tossed out to sea. Those
that bobbed in the gentle swell
became targets for other bot-
tles to be thrown at. There was
little thought given to any impli-
cation of these actions. Maybe
their children’s feet have soles
of steel.

They left the beach. They left
Colonel Sanders for the dogs.
They left a trail of litter indis-
criminately discarded as they
staggered to their cars. They left
having had a good day.

The sad thing is that this was
by no means an isolated inci-
dent.

Keeping the island beautiful,
if these actions are any indica-
tion, is almost a lost cause. Just
keeping it clean seems to be a
struggle, not just for the enjoy-
ment of the tourists but for the
locals as well. It really doesn’t
take much. But it starts with
anyone who is lucky enough to
live here.

We shall continue to clean '

the beach, because it’s the right
thing to do. We would rather
not have to. The world’s envi-
ronment is fragile.

However, it will be around
long after we have all passed,
and will eventually recover.
People come to the Bahamas

thinking that they will be enjoy- :
ing one of the few remaining ,
“paradises”. It is sad to think, :
however, that while this may be °

true for other islands in the
Bahamas, New Providence
appears to be struggling with
that label.

Paradise Island doesn’t count.
We doubt if you will find a lot
of discarded litter there. It’s
probably on its way to “our”
beach right now.

EDITOR, The Tribune.

ICAN’T help but wonder if
the PLP is trying to fool them-
selves or the public with its
recent campaign thanking the
people of The Bahamas for its
“popular vote”. This very
same campaign of deceit,
which doctors the numbers
and the statistics, played a sig-
nificant role in the PLP’s
defeat at the polls earlier this
month.

Whereas it is indeed possi-
ble for one party to win the
general elections while the
other party wins the popular
vote, this did not happen on
May 2, 2007.

The FNM won the majority
of seats: FNM 23; PLP 18.

The FNM won the popular
vote: FNM 68,547 (49.82% );
PLP 64,637 (46.98%);
BDM/Ind. 4,394 (3.19%)

The people of The Bahamas
deserve an honest and forth-
right opposition that is willing
to shoot it straight with the
people. There is no place in
this twenty-first century
Bahamas for the kind of trick-
ery and deceit contained in
this recent message by the
PLP.

TEACHERS and stu-
dents of the Gambier Pri-
mary School held a special
programme on Wednesday
morning in recognition of
their special guests from the
Royal Bahamas Defence
Force.

The military organisation,
through its ‘Adopt-A-
School’ programme, chose
| several years ago to become
intimately involved with the
school, and in so doing ren-
ders assistance whenever
possible.

On this occasion, the stu-
dents put on spectacular
performances as the com-
mander of the Defence
Force, Commodore Clifford
Scavella made his first offi-
cial visit to the school.

Gabrielle Rolle, a six-
year-old first grader was
excellent in her role as mis-
tress of ceremonies, as she
ied the programme.

Students from the various
classes entertained the
guests, which included par-
ents and officers from the
school’s Parent Teachers
Association (PTA).

Commodore Scavella
encouraged the children to
continue to maintain a high
standard of education, and
commended Mrs Paulamae
Bethel, principal of the
school, and her staff for pro-
ducing excellent students.

He afterwards congratu-
lated the sixth grade stu-
dents, and presented them
with calculators.

The commodore also
pledged his continued sup-
port to the school, and
vowed that the Defence
Force will assist in whatever
way they can.

Since the programme was
formally established in 1995,
members of the Defence
Force have purchased
school supplies, playground
equipment, computers and
their accessories, video.
machines and television.

‘Guarding our heritage.

Five plead not guilty
over fraud charges

FIVE people were arraigned
together in Magistrate’s Court
yesterday on fraud charges.

Kenricka Sands, 21, Elliot
Minns, 32, Jace Mackey, 23,
Damarlus Curry, 25, and
Lechante Wright, 23, were
arraigned before Magistrate
Guillimena Archer at court 10
in Nassau Street yesterday on
charges of conspiracy to com-
mit fraud, conspiracy to com-
mit forgery, forgery, uttering a
false document and fraud by
false pretences.

It was alleged that on
Wednesday, May 9, the accused
conspired to commit fraud by
false pretences.

A second charge claimed that
on the same day the accused



OFFICERS and marines of
the Royal Bahamas Defence
Force can expect to see an
improvement in salaries, a res-
olution of their health insurance
coverage issue and more boats
and aircraft, National Security
Minister Tommy Turnquest
said.

As he toured the Defence
Force’s base at Coral Harbour,
accompanied Mrs Elma Camp-
bell, Minister of State for Immi-
gration and Commodore Clif-
ford Scavella, Mr Turnquest
said the government is commit-
ted to giving the Defence Force
“the care and attention it
needs.”

“We will take care of you,
and we expect you to take care
of our country,” he told officers
and marines. “I now challenge
you to recommit and rededicate
yourselves to the lofty ideals of
this great institution, as we now
strengthen our partnership to
enable you to bring true mean-
ing to the words of your motto:

“The government and our
nation thank you,” Mr Turn-
quest told Defence Force offi-
cers. “We have come through
a fractious campaign in which
you were called upon to choose
sides. But, choice is the essence
of democracy. The election is
now over and, as Bahamians,
we need to now work together
in the interest of developing our
Bahamas and serving our peo-
ple.”

He said that the state could
not pay for the courage, indus-
try and determination of
Defence Force officers.

“The state, however,.to the
extent that resources permit,

conspired to commit forgery.

It was further alleged that on
or about Wednesday, May 9,
the accused, being concerned
together with the intent to
defraud, forged a_ First
Caribbean International Bank
draft #526451 in the amount of
$311,500 purporting it to be
genuine.

It was also alleged that on the
same day at Paradise Island,
being concerned together, the
accused uttered a First
Caribbean International Bank
draft #526451 in the amount of
$311,500.

On the charge of fraud by

false pretences, it was alleged:

that on May 9, at Paradise
Island, the accused, being con-

cerned together with the intent
to defraud, obtained from
Kabana Boutique a at the Roy-
al Towers in Atlantis, goods in
the amount of $311,500 by
means of false pretences.

The accused all pleaded not
guilty to the charges.

All, except Curry, were grant-
ed bail in the sum of $30,000
with two sureties.

Curry was denied bail and
remanded to Her Majesty’s
Prison because, according to the
prosecution, the accused was
already on bail for charges of a
similar nature.

The matter was adjourned to
September 18.

eA 35-year-old woman was

arraigned in Magistrate's Court
yesterday charged with cocaine
possession.

It was alleged that Elizabeth
Florence Francis of Summer
Haven was found on Thursday,
May 17 in possession of a quan-
tity of cocaine which authori-
ties believed she intended to
supply to another.

Francis, who was arraigned
before Magistrate Renee McK-
ay, at court six in Parliament
Street, pleaded not guilty to the
charge.

The prosecution alleges that
she was found in possession of
six grams of marijuana. Francis
was granted bail in the sum of
$7,500 and the matter was
adjourned to June 5 for a hear-

“The matter of your medical

once and for all. The govern-
ment is committed to providing

Mr Turnquest said that in

the Defence Force needs ade-
quate resources.

ing the Defence Force fleet and
I will soon be meeting with the
commodore and relevant offi-
cers to develop a plan to

to prioritise and schedule these
assets in a phased manner.”

He thanked the government
of the United States for its
donation of four, 40-foot patrol
vessels. The vessels are to be
delivered later this year. Mr
Turnquest called it a “true
expression” of the excellent
relations between the two coun-
tries.

He said he was “acutely

the 100,000 square miles of
national territory.

Mr Turnquest said he has
been advised that the Air Wing
had “operational difficulties in
recent times and I understand
that the one aircraft is now
operational.

“We need to strengthen the
Air Wing and make it more
functional,” he added.

The primary threats to
national security — drug traf-

poaching — come through the

man pleaded guilty to a mari-
juana possession charge yester-
day. It was alleged that Levi
Hepburn was found on Thurs-
day, May 17, in possession of a
quantity of marijuana.

According to the prosecution,
Hepburn was found in posses-
sion of five grams of the drug.

Hepburn was arraigned
before Magistrate Renee McK-
ay at court six in Parliament

He was fined $500 after
pleading guilty to the drug
charge. Failure to pay the fine
will result in a six-month prison
sentence.



choke off this access lane.”

“It is therefore the govern-
ment’s intention to move swift-
ly in making sure that the base
in Inagua is fully operational
and staffed from which regular
patrols can be taken. We have
talked about this for too long.
Plans were in place in 2002 to
build this very important facili-
ty, and we will review and
update those plans as necessary
to effect this-important initia-
tive.”

He also touched on the prob-
lem of illegal immigration,
describing it as a “major threat
to the security of our nation.”

He pledged that he and Mrs
Campbell will work closely to
give policy direction to address
this problem.

“The inclusion of immigra-
tion into our National Security
Ministry will no doubt foster
optimal utilisation of our
resources, through the facilita-
tion of joint planning, joint
investigations and joint opera-.
tions to curb this problem.”

In addition to the base at
Inagua, he said, the government
is also committed to establishing
and maintaining a permanent
presence for the Defence Force
in the northern Bahamas, as
well as upgrading the facilities at
Coral Harbour.

This would include dredging
the harbour, the construction
of a new sea wall and the instal-
lation of a fuel farm.

Cheshire Home
residents appeal
to government

By ASHLEY THOMPSON

MEMBERS of the Centre
for Independent Living are
making an appeal to the
Ingraham administration to
be allowed to live in the
Cheshire Home until a new
facility can be built.

The president of the cen-
tre, Jerome Thompson, says
that he is merely asking for
Cheshire Home, a former res-
idence for disabled Bahami-
ans, to be allowed “to serve
the purpose it was intended
to serve”.

He noted that this would be
especially beneficial to those
of the group in wheelchairs,
as the home is only five min-
utes away from their jobs on
Dolphin Drive.

Evicted from the Cheshire
Home two years ago, its pre-
vious residents have formed
the Centre for Independent
Living in an effort to create a
new disabled friendly facility
for adult Bahamians.

The centre is a non-profit
organisation for physically dis-
abled Bahamian adults. It was
founded on October 25, 2005.

The purpose of the organi-
sation is to provide residen-
tial facilities to give persons
with disabilities in the
Bahamas the freedom to be
directly invcived with and in
charge of their own lives.

At the moment, the organ-
isation does not have any
facilities — and until something
can be built, the members say
they must continue to reside
in an East Street apartment
that has not been made dis-
abled friendly.

This apartment is far from
the Dolphin Drive workplace
of those in wheelchairs, and
it takes them an hour on busy
streets to wheel themselves to





Sunday School: 10am

work.

The board of this organisa-
tion consists of the men who
were formerly residents of the
Cheshire Home, as well as

. members of Gerry’s Kids

Charities.

Their first meeting was held
on Thursday night and they
soon plan to begin fundraising
in the hope of building a facil-
ity on a piece of property they
are trying to acquire on Dol-
phin Drive.

They have been helped by
Giorgio Baldacci in the plan-
ning and structural design of
the future facility.

But before beginning
fundraising, the organisation
is trying to make itself more
accessible to the public by
obtaining a vehicle and an
office.

The Chesire Home was an
independent living facility
officially opened on March 26,
1991 on Dolphin Drive.

The money was raised by
the Rotary Club of East Nas-
sau. Once opened the keys
were handed over to the Cen-
tral Anglican Deanery.

The home was given the
name Chesire Home under
the Leonard Cheshire Foun-
dation International, found-
ed by British World War II
veteran, Leonard Cheshire.

‘Many such homes have
been opened worldwide in
accordance with this man’s
dream of physically disabled
persons having the chance to
live with others and indepen-
dently.

The Cheshire Home was
closed in 2005 because the
management no longer had
the ability to fund the facility.

The former PLP govern-
ment said they wanted to turn
it into a home for disabled
children.

Toye TESTS

Numerologist: ‘My
phone’s blowing up’

“By TRIBUNE
"STAFF WRITER

> SCORES of Bahamians are
eager to find out more about
*numerologist Jerome Carter,
‘the man who predicted cate-
'gorically that the PLP would
‘lose the general election.

Since The Tribune published
further predictions from Mr
‘Carter earlier this week —
including a claim that the PLP
‘would be out of power for a
‘long time — the phone at his
‘Arizona home hasn’t stopped
ringing.

' “My phone is blowing up,”
the said yesterday. “People are
asking for info left and right.”

The Tribune has also received

several calls from readers anx-
ious to know more about Mr
‘Carter’s uncanny forecasting
‘talents.
’ One woman said: “I need to
speak to this guy about my own
life. I want to know what this
numbers thing is all about.”

Mr Carter’s predictions are
carried on radio stations across
America. And the announce-





ment of May 2 as the Bahamas
election date led him to warn
the PLP that by picking the sec-
ond day of the fifth month they
were bound to lose.

He said two-plus-five
equalled seven, which he
claimed was FNM leader
Hubert Ingraham’s lucky num-
ber, and a surefire pointer to
an FNM victory.

Some readers have expressed
concern about what they regard
as “satanic” powers, but Mr
Carter says all his numerical
prowess is religiously based.

“Everything in the universe
can be reduced to numbers,” he
said, “You cannot get through a
day without using numbers
unless you sleep all day. From
the moment you are born until

the day you die, you are a num- -

ber.”

Mr Carter said his under-
standing of numerology came
from an Ethiopian Jewish man
who married his aunt. “I attend-
ed Catholic school, attended
services at the Jewish syna-
gogue, and played the piano at
Holy Roller Baptist Church on

Abaco students explore Nassau

Sundays. I also occasionally
went to a Muslim mosque with
another aunt who was staying
with us at the time.

“My gift does not come from
the devil. Do you worship Satan
when you look at your
speedometer?

“Is it a sin or considered
breaking a commandment when
you are comparing prices in the
grocery store?

“Numerology involves using a
system God created for Earth.
Numerology uses numbers and
vibrations to help individuals
prosper both spiritually and
financially.”

He believes numbers can
even tell you if you are sleeping
with the right person.

In his latest political predic-
tions, Mr Carter has forecast a
successful term for Mr Ingra-
ham as prime minister, with the
PLP having no chance of forc-
ing another election next year.

He said the Bahamas was set
to prosper under the new gov-
ernment, with major improve-
ments in store for downtown
Nassau.



Central Abaco Primary students and teachers took in a Tourism and Social Studies Bus Safari dur-

ing a visit to the nation’s capital.

The safari is a two-hour educational excursion co-ordinated by the Ministry of Tourism.
’ The excursion features a dynamic presentation on tourism facts and figures.

It also includes a tour of Fort Fincastle and a visit to the House of Assembly for an overview on | how

the Bahamas’ government functions.

Meeting to assess making
CARICOM visas permanent

CARIBBEAN experts will meet in
Trinidad and Tobago next week to evaluate
the possible permanent application of CARI-
COM visas used during the World Cricket

Cup, when over 40,000 such visas were .

issued.

The meeting will issue a report on the sub-
ject to heads of government of 15 member
countries of CARICOM to convene in Bar-
bados next July.

The controversial decision has supporters
like the Council for Foreign Affairs of the
community that met in Belize this month
and opponents from other member coun-

tries.

The CARICOM Single Market and Econ-
omy (CSME) highlights the free movement
of people and services which has been oper-
ational since February 1, 2007.

The strategy is to extend that facility to
all the region alongside the CARICOM
passport, already in use in Grenada, Suri-
name, St Vincent and the Grenadines and St
Kitts and Nevis.

At a recent press conference, Prime Min-
ister Hubert Ingraham said the Bahamas
had no economic interest in the CSME, but
that countries like the Bahamas, Bermuda

and the Cayman Islands could become inter-
ested in co-operating on social issues, such as
health and education.

He said he had been in touch with the Bar-

bados prime minister, who is set to become,

CSME chairman in July. Mr Ingraham said
he expects the Caribbean to re-focus its
CSME agenda away from economic matters
and more towards social issues.

“They are things that places like the
Bahamas, and Bermuda, and the Caymans,
and Turks and Caicos could become inter-
ested in. And I got the impression that that is
what the incoming chairman proposes to do

to re-engage us in the process of discussion,
because the economic side of CSME is not a
matter in which the Bahamas has any inter-
est whatsoever,” he said.

The CSME battle raged on for months
during the early stages of the former Christie
administration, the government’s pro-CSME
stance drawing a backlash from opponents
who felt that the Bahamas would be inun-
dated with foreign workers once it signed
on to the accord.

Former Foreign Affairs Minister Fred
Mitchell was the main proponent of the
Bahamas joining the accord.

Venezuela TV station

loses licence battle

By FABIOLA SANCHEZ
Associated Press Writer

CARACAS, Venezuela (AP)
— Venezuela’s Supreme Court
has dismissed a challenge by an
opposition-aligned television
station seeking to remain on the
air despite the government’s
decision not to renew its license.

The Supreme Court of Jus-
tice, in a decision announced
late Thursday, declared inad-
missible the challenge by Radio
Caracas Television and its top
executive Marcel Granier. The
ruling is a setback for RCTV,
a channel critical of President
Hugo Chavez that is due to go
off the air at midnight May 27
when the government says its
license expires. ~

.The channel and its support-
ers argue Chavez is trying to
silence criticism, while the gov-
ernment says it will be replaced
by a public-service station and
that freedom of expression is
being respected.

Supreme Court president
Luisa Estella Morales said in a
statement that it is up to the
National Telecommunications
Commission to decide on the
issuing, renewal and revocation

of broadcast licenses. The court”
left open the possibility that the

channel could seek redress

through other legal means, and ~
other challenges are pending
before the court.

“Tt’s clear that the RCTV
case is still in dispute. We are
going to continue the fight
before, during and after May
27,” Oswaldo Quintana, a
lawyer for RCTV, said in a
statement.

Chavez announced in
December that the government
would not renew the station’s
license, accusing it of supporting
a failed 2002 coup against him.
The government also accuses
RCTV of violating broadcast
laws, and Chavez says it pro-
duces “grotesque shows” that
promote consumerism and vio-
lence. .

The government is creating a
state-funded foundation to
launch a new public service
channel in place of RCTV.

Chavez opponents, who plan
a march in favor of RCTV on
Saturday, argue that the public
service channel will simply turn
out pro-government propagan-
da. Government officials deny
it.

SIGNED AS APPROVED ON BEHALF OF THE BOARD:

Notes to the Balance Sheet
31 December 2006 ‘

1. Incorporation, Business Activity and Group Structure

Pictet Overseas Trust Corporation Limited (the Company) is incorporated under the
Companies Act, 1992, of the Commonwealth of The Bahamas and is licenced under The
Banks and Trust Companies Regulation Act, 2000, to carry on trust business within The
Bahamas. The Company is also empowered to act as an authorised agent to receive
securities into deposit on behalf of customers. The address of its registered office is Bayside
Executive Park, West Bay Street and Blake Road, New Providence, Bahamas.

The Company is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Pictet Bank & Trust Limited (the Parent), a .

bank incorporated and licenced in The Bahamas, which is one of a group of entities (the
Pictet Group) controlled by the partners of Pictet & Cie, Geneva, a private banking
partnership organised under the laws of Switzerland. Pictet & Cie and other entities directly

- or indirectly controlled or significantly influenced by the partners of Pictet & Cie are referred
to as related parties. All significant balances and arrangements with related parties are
disclosed in either the balance sheet or these explanatory notes.

2. . Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

me

Significant accounting policies applied in the preparation of the balance sheet are set out
below. These policies have been consistently applied to all the years presented, unless
otherwise stated.

(a) Basis of presentation

The Company prepares its balance sheet in accordance with International Financial
Reporting Standards (IFRS) and under the historical cost convention.

The application of amendments to published accounting standards and interpretations
that became effective 1 January 2006 did not result in substantial changes to the
Company’s accounting policies. With the exception of the new disclosure
requirements of IFRS 7 Financial Instruments: Disclosures, and amendments to [AS
1 Presentation of Financial Statements regarding capital disclosures, that become
effective k January 2007, the application of new standards and interpretations issued
but not yet effective will not have a material impact on the Company’s balance sheet
in the period of initial application. On adoption, IFRS 7 will supersede IAS 30 and
the disclosure requirements of IAS 32. :

(b) Use of estimates

The preparation of the balance sheet in conformity with IFRS requires management to
make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and
liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities as of the date of the balance
sheet. Actual amounts could differ from those estimates.

(c) Trustee fees receivable

Trustee fees receivable are recognised initially at fair value and subsequently
measured at amortised cost, less any provision that may be necessary for impairment.
A provision for impairment is established when there is objective evidence that the
Company will not be able to collect all amounts according to the original terms of the
receivable. The provision is the difference between the carrying amount and present
value of estimated cash flows discounted at the original effective interest rate. Trustee
fees receivable are typically supported by assets held by the Company as trustee;
accordingly, the Company has not established a provision for impairment.

(d) Fiduciary accounts and assets under administration

The Company acts as trustee and in other fiduciary capacities that result in the holding
or placing of assets on behalf of individuals, trusts and other institutions. These assets
and income arising thereon are excluded from the balance sheet, as they do not belong
to the Company.

(e) Translation of foreign currencies

The Company’s functional and presentation currency is the Swiss Franc (CHF), as it
best reflects the economic substance of underlying events and transactions relevant to
the Company. Foreign currency transactions are translated into the functional
currency using the exchange rates prevailing as of the dates of the transactions.
Foreign exchange gains and losses resulting from the settlement of such transactions
and from the translation at year-end exchange rates of monetary assets and liabilities
denominated in foreign currencies are recognised in the income statement.

(f) Income and expense recognition
Trustee and other fees from the administration of trusts are recognised when earned
based on the applicable service agreements, generally when billed to clients. The
Company’s billing cycle is such that fees charged to clients are usually billed and
collected in-the same accounting period that they are earned. Interest income is

recognised using the effective interest method.

All other income and expenses are recorded on the accrual basis.

(g) Corresponding figures

Where necessary, corresponding figures are adjusted to conform with changes in
presentation in the current year.

od

(a) Liquidity risk

This is the risk that the Company might not have the necessary liquidity to meet its
contractual obligations. The Company has minimal exposure to liquidity risk because
its normal business activities are such that they generally do not result in material
liabilities. If necessary, the Company may arrange to obtain, on relatively short
notice, credit facilities from other entities in the Pictet Group to assist with its
liquidity requirements.

4. Related Party Arrangements
(a) Administration and service support

As part of the restructuring of the Company’s operations, the Parent arranged for
personnel to be dedicated to the management and administration of the Company’s
affairs. In 2006, the Company entered into an agreement with the Parent whereby the
Company is charged an annual fee in respect of the cost of accounting and
administrative services provided by the Parent and associated with the conduct of the
Company’s business. The agreement is renewable annually. In previous years, the
Company received these management. and administration services from the Parent
without charge.

. (b) Cash at bank - Parent

Demand and. call deposits with the Parent do not earn interest.

5. _ Fair Value of Financial Instruments

Financial instruments utilised by the Company primarily include those types of recorded
financial assets and liabilities shown in the balance sheet. The majority of the Company’s
financial instruments are either short-term in nature or have interest rates that automatically
reset to market rates on a periodic basis. Accordingly, the estimated fair value is not
significantly different from the carrying value for each major category of the Company’s
recorded financial assets and liabilities.

Disaster strikes

with fire at sea

This week, In Days Gone By
looks back at the burning of the
Nassau-bound vessel Yarmouth
Castle, the worst disaster in
North American waters since
the Noronic burned and sank
in Toronto Harbour with the
loss of up to 139 lives in 1949.

Critically-injured people were
taken by helicopter from the
cruise ship Bahama Star to Nas-
sau hospitals.

Eighty-seven people went
down with the ship, and three of
the rescued passengers later
died at hospitals, bringing the
final death toll to 90.

Of the dead, only two were
crewmembers: stewardess Phyl-
lis Hall and Dr Lisardo Diaz-
Toorens, the ship's physician.
While some bodies were recov-
ered, most were lost with the
ship.

Yarmouth Castle left Miami
for Nassau on November 12,

’ 176 crewmen aboard — a total of

552 people. The ship was due
to arrive in Nassau the next day.
The captain on the voyage was
35-year-old Byron Voutsinas.

Shortly before lam on
November 13, a mattress stored
too close to a lighting circuit in
a,storage room 610, caught fire.
The room was filled with mat-
tresses and paint cans, which
fed the flames.

At around lam, a badly

burned passenger emerged .

from a stairway and collapsed
on the deck. Crewmen who
rushed to the man's aid found
the stairwell filled with smoke
and flames. Captain Voutsinas
was immediately notified of the
fire by the watch officer. The
captain ordered the second
mate to sound the alarm on the
ship's horn, but the bridge went
up in flames before the alarm
could: be sounded. The: ship's

off duty, found the radio shack

point, Yarmouth Castle was 120
miles east of Miami and 60
miles northwest of Nassau.

The ship's fire alarms did not
sound and the sprinkler system
did not activate. Passengers
were awakened by screaming
and running in the corridors as
people frantically tried to find
lifejackets.

The fire swept through the

‘ship's superstructure at great

speed, driven by the ship’s nat-
ural ventilation system. The
flames rose vertically through
the stairwells, fueled by the
wood paneling, wooden decks
and layers of fresh paint on the
walls. Many passengers had to
break windows and squeeze
through portholes to escape
their burning cabins. The whole
front half of the ship was quick-
ly engulfed, causing passengers
and crew to flee to the stern of
the ship. Several of Yarmouth

Castle's lifeboats burned before

‘ they could be launched. -

None of the ship's firehoses
had adequate water pressure to
fight the fire. One of the hoses

had even been cut: Crewmen~ ~

also had difficulty launching the

. lifeboats. The ropes used to

lower the boats had been cov-
ered in thick coats of paint,
causing them to jam in the
winches. Even the boats that
were successfully lowered had
no oarlocks, and had to be pad-
dled like canoes. By the end,
only six of the 13 lifeboats were
launched.

There were tales of both
courage and cowardice among
the crew. Many fled the ship
without helping the passengers.
Others pulled passengers from
the windows of their cabins and
directed them to rope ladders
on the side of the ship. Some
crew members had to physical-

e The Bahama Star comes into New Providence

Castle, he ordered the ship
ahead at full speed. Bahama
Star radioed the Coast Guard
at 2.20am.

The first ship on the scene
was Finnpulp. The first of
Yarmouth Castle's lifeboats,
which was only half-full, rowed
to the freighter. Captain Lehto
was angered to find that only
four of the people in the boat
were passengers. The other 20
were crewmembers who fled at
the first alarm, among them
Captain Voutsinas.

The four passengers were
taken aboard the freighter.
Voutsinas claimed that he had
come to Finnpulp to request a
radio distress call. Lehko turned
Voutsinas and the crewmen
back to Yarmouth Castle say-
ing, "Go back and look for
more survivors." The next two
lifeboats launched from
Yarmouth Castle contained

a motorboat, which towed some
of the boats to Bahama Star.

Coast Guard pilots in four
planes flying 4,000 feet over-
head later said they were near-
ly engulfed by the smoke and
flames, which could be seen for
miles.

All survivors had been pulled
aboard Finnpulp and Bahama
Star by 4am, by which time
Yarmouth Castle's hull was

‘glowing red.

The water around the ship
was visibly boiling. Just before
6am, Yarmouth Castle rolled
over onto its port side. There
was a roar of steam and burst-

zivoiding the heart loser, declarer
ruffed a club at trick two, hoping the
¢ jueen would fall on this round or the
rtext time clubs were led.

South then cashed the ace of
spades, learning to his horror that
\WNest had two apparently certain
trump tricks. Undaunted, he played
fior the only distribution that would
p ermit the contract to be made.

‘At trick four, he led a heart to the
a ce and ruffed the nine of clubs. Next
he cashed three rounds of diamonds
ending in dummy. He then ruffed the
jéick of clubs.

‘West by now had been shorn of
all his clubs and diamonds. And
when South next cashed the king of
hearts, West ran dry in that suit also.
V Vith three tricks to go, West’s hand
c onsisted of the Q-10-9 of spades,
wybile declarer had only the K-J of
spades and six of hearts.

Having won the first 10 tricks,
S outh now led the six of hearts, and
siuddenly the three losers he had
started with dwindled to one. West
wvas forced to trump the heart, though
il: was his partner’s trick, and had no
choice but to return a spade into
Siouth’s K-J.

‘ Thus South, in one motion, found
a;.way to telescope three losers into
cme, and a bewildered West could do
n}o less than offer his congratulations
cy a well-played slam. n

you should end the friendship.

LEO — Jul 23/Aug 23

If you’re aggravated about your

‘toss away those credit cards and start
saving for a few months.

make changes in your personal life,
