Government is
blamed for taking
officers away from
area as murder toll
reaches 42.

@ By TANEKA THOMPSON

ANGRY neighbours are
blaming government for the
death of David Rolle, who died
on the steps of a deserted
Urban Renewal building after
being shot several times.

Rolle, the country’s 42nd
murder victim, made a frantic
call to his mother before dying
of his injuries, sources told The
Tribune.

After fleeing his attacker, he
reportedly sought help from the
police officers he expected to
be manning the Nassau Village
Urban Renewal office — only to
find the building closed.

Last night, residents of the
area hit out at the FNM admin-
istration for removing police
officers from Urban Renewal
Project — claiming that were it
not for this, Rolle would still be
alive.

Shortly after 10pm Thursday,
Rolle was gunned down outside
his home in the Nassau Village
subdivision. It is the latest in an
alarming spree of killings that
has the Bahamas on track to
see an all time high of 80 mur-
ders this year.

_ According to a statement
released by the Royal Bahamas
Police Force, Rolle of Stack
Avenue, arrived home from
work around 10pm. Intending

to visit a female companion in
the area, he was getting out of
his vehicle when a concealed
gunman fatally shot him sever-
al times.

Sources said that Rolle ran
into the yard of the Urban

Renewal Centre opposite his .

home expecting police officers
to be on the premises. Finding
the centre closed and deserted,
Rolle made a cell phone call to
his mother. Moments later his
mother rushed outside to find
her son dead, with several gun-
shot wounds in his body.

_ Assistant Superintendent
Walter Evans, of the Royal
Bahamas Police Force, told The
Tribune that an “unidentified
male” was spotted leaving the
area shortly after the murder.
He further noted that as it was
“very early in the investigation”
no further comments could be
made on the case.

Many angry residents of the
area are outraged at the mur-
der, saying had there been a
police presence at the Urban
Renewal Project centre, David
would still be alive today. A
neighbour of the victim, who
wished to remain anonymous,
spoke to The Tribune: "I could-
n't believe it when I found out
what happened last night. I ain’t
want start anything, but before
the election a police car was

centre)."

"If that place was open, this
wouldn't a happen," he said, his
eyes fixed on the victim's home.

Kenyatta Gibson, MP for the
Kennedy Constituency, spoke
to The Tribune about the
tragedy. “I have seen what
Urban Renewal has done to
change Nassau Village,” he said
on Friday morning. “I have seen

troubled young men become .

police officers as a result of
being involved with the pro-
gramme. I have seen lives trans-
formed.”

In 2003, the iene PP

administration formed the
award-winning Urban Renewal
Project in an effort to ensure
“effective community policing
and employing all available
means of making communities
safe for everyone.” By increas-
ing police presence in inner city
communities and integrating
police patrols in urban areas,
the programme was what many

‘considered to be a resounding
‘success in the fight against

crime. There are currently nine
Project centres throughout New
Providence.

Alarm as dead
bird sightings
continue

@ By DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport Reporter

FREEPORT - The mysterious death
of numerous seabirds in waters off
Grand Bahama is causing residents great
concern.

New dead bird sightings continue to be
reported, particularly in East Grand
Bahama where residents reported seeing
dead birds floating in the water a few
weeks ago.

According to reports, a large number
of dead birds were again spotted 15 miles
off Freeport last week. And, there have
also been sightings as far as Bimini, and

. Florida.

Local veterinarians and nature experts
here on Grand Bahama are baffled as to
what could be causing the deaths of these
sea birds, which are believed to be the
Cory Shearwaters.

Ministry of Agriculture officials in
Freeport and New Providence could not
be reached for comments up to press
time on Friday.

Carl Bethel makes

partnership offer

to school parents
and students

â„¢ By MARK HUMES

EDUCATION Minister Carl Bethel
delivered a strong message to parents
and students yesterday, saying that his
ministry will expect them to take greater
ownership in the country’s public school
educational process.

In his address to union members at
the opening of their 60th annual general
meeting, Minister Bethel said: “I would
like for you to devote a small portion of
your time to consider ways in which we,
hand in hand, can work to improve the
partnership that we seek to instil and
build between the ministry and the
union.”

“Through that enhanced cooperation,”
continued the minister, “we can posi-
tively impact national scores at all grade
levels, and together we can ensure that
our graduates are better suited to tran-
sition directly to the work field or to fur-
ther training, if they so decide.

Wayne Munroe
reported to win
presidency of
Bar Association

A three-way race for the presidency of
the Bahamas Bar Association ended yes-
terday with the incumbent Wayne
Munroe reportedly holding on to the
position.

Mr Munroe was challenged by Brian
Simms and Brian Moree.

Elections began at 3pm yesterday and
the outcome of the proceedings became
clear at around 6pm.

An estimated 900 lawyers in the
Bahamas were eligible to vote in the
process.

Mr Munroe, a partner of the Lock-
hart, Munroe and Co law firm, has in
recent times become a prominent figure
in the Bahamian and international press
— most notably for representing the
deceased US celebrity Anna Nicole
Smith and her partner Howard K Stern.

He is currently also one of the lawyers
representing the PLP in its election court
cases.

with the Lennox Paton law firm, is a

A HUSBAND and wife

ed their $20,000 cheque from
the radio station yesterday.

Howanell Thompson-Mack-

the tenth caller to the radio
station yesterday. Nervously
she explained how her hus-
band, Thomas ‘Mackey, laid
all the clues out on the bed
the night before to try to fig-
ure out the answer. She was
the first caller to correctly
guess the sound to be a utility
light being dragged through a
PVC pipe.

Mrs Mackey said she would
have to think and meditate
about what she would do with
the money. The cheque was

presented by “Mista Smith”,
100 JAMZ’s afternoon per-
sonality. Mrs Mackey made
her call during his show.

radio listeners were invited to

the prize hit the $20,000 jack-
pot three weeks ago the radio
station started publishing a

Exhibition puts
focus on AIDS

@ BY JEFFARAH GIBSON

OVER the past two decades
HIV/AIDS has wreaked havoc
on Bahamian families, as vic-
tims of the disease have been
reluctant to share their status
with others for fear of discrimi-
nation.

In partnership with the AIDS
Foundation, Antonius Roberts,
one of the premier artists in the

Bahamas, has set about trying"

break this stigma and lift the
veil of silence surrounding the
disease.

He has made the lives of HIV
positive persons the subject of
his new exhibition, entitled,
“Emerging through the Shad-
ows... A Celebration of Hope”.

Mr Roberts said that as a
Bahamian artist, he would like
to challenge other artists to get
involved in using their talents
to make significant statements
about HIV/AIDS.

Because Bahamians who are
HIV positive usually experience
ostracism, rejection, discrimi-
nation and avoidance, Roberts
is seeking to give them a voice
through his art.

Stigma

Camille Barnett, president of
the AIDS Foundation, said that
the time has come for our soci-
ety to allow “our brothers and
sisters to emerge from the shad-
ows of stigma and discrimina-
tion”.

The official unveiling of the
exhibition will be held on July 2
at the Central Bank of the
Bahamas between the hours of
6 and 9pm.

The show is made up of 21
silhouettes of persons living
with HIV/AIDS in. the
Bahamas.

“These are powerfully

important bodies of artwork
that we hope will put a face on
HIV/AIDS in the Bahamas
without compromising the pri- .
vacy of the models by putting
the actual face in the public are-

“na,” said Ms Barnett.

This event is the first of a
three part series conceived by
Mr Roberts. With 50 per cent of
the sales being donated to the
foundation, serious art collec-
tors are encouraged to view
Roberts’ most recent paintings
with a view to purchasing one of
them and thereby making a
contribution to fight against
HIV/AIDS.

With the majority of art work
priced at $10,000, and with a
goal of over $100,000, this fund
raising event will help in the
process of purchasing a house
for use as a group home for
boys, and in the near future pro-
vide scholarships for those in
need.

Man charged
with burglary
and firearm

offences
FREEPORT - An Eight
Mile Rock man_ was

arraigned in Freeport Magis-
trate’s Court in connection
with a shooting and burglary
incident last week at Free-
town in East Grand Bahama.

Hensley Sands, 24, of Jones
Town, was charged with bur-
glary, attempted armed rob-
bery, and possession of
firearm and ammunition.

The prosecution alleged
that between 10pm on Thurs-
day, June 21, and 2am on
June 22, at Freetown, the
accused, being concerned
with another and while
armed with a .45 semi-auto-
matic pistol loaded with five
rounds of ammunition, broke
and entered the home of
Lesco Pennerman, with
intent to rob Mr Pennerman.

Sands, who was not repre-
sented by a lawyer, was not
required to enter a plea to
the charges.

The matter was adjourned
to August 28 when a prelim-
inary inquiry will be held.

Sands was remanded to
Her Majesty’s Prison.

BAHAMIANS should fight
to protect their human rights
and fundamental freedoms said
Fred Smith, president of the

Grand Bahama Human Rights .

Association.

He was responding to an arti-
cle quoting statements by Pastor
Rex Major, published in The
Tribune yesterday. Criticising
the “soft attitude” that he
believes liberal thinking creates,
Pastor Major called for the
police to institute random
searches of citizens as part of
the fight against crime.

To those who would cry out
that the rights of Bahamians
were being stepped on by law
enforcement officers, Pastor
Major replied: “Keep your free-
doms and your rights — and let
that be the avenue by which
your whole life is taken.”

While the Grand Bahama
Human Rights Association has
previously worked closely with
the pastor, they believe his sug-
gestion.that compromising
human rights and fundamental



HB FRED Smith

freedoms in order to fight crime
is unacceptable, Mr Smith said.
He pointed out that chapter

three of the constitution was

put in place to protect individ-
uals from the abuse of human
rights.

The government has also
signed two international decla-
rations of human rights which
aim at allowing the country to
balance rights, duties, and oblig-
ations in society.

If its citizens relinquish their

rights for any reason, including

hts must be defended

Fred Smith speaks out after comments
on ‘soft attitude’ made by pastor

fighting crime, the country
would be heading down a “slip-
pery slope” ending in the possi-
ble loss of all rights, Mr Smith
warned.

“Historically the church, in
particular the Catholic Church,
has been a staunch supporter
of human rights throughout the
world. In the Bahamas, our
association is alarmed that
many pastors and reverends
from many denominations have
disregarded human rights in
pursuit of extreme punishment
and expedience from the gov-
ernment,” he said.

This approach creates disad-
vantages for accused persons,
as it becomes harder for them
to receive a fair trial, he said.

It is not the Attorney Gen-
eral’s Office’s job to persecute
the accused, but rather to pros-

ecute them, and attitudes to the
contrary are contributing to the
“near state of collapse” the
criminal judicial system in the
Bahamas is facing, according to
Mr Smith.

These concerns are especially

. important and harder to address

as neither the PLP nor the FNM
seem willing fulfill a decades
old promise to establish a legal
aid system to provide accused
persons with proper represen-
tation, he added.

Unfortunately, Mr Smith
said, he believes that people are
more focused on convictions
than on allowing others to
receive fair trials.

Many of these same people
continue to promote punish-
ments such as flogging and
whipping, as well as the death
penalty.

Mr Smith said his association
condemns all of these penalties,
emphasising that the Bahamas
is one of the few countries
remaining that still uses them.

Mr Smith also commented on
the statements made by Pastor
Rex against homosexual rela-
tionships.

“Our association also takes
issue with the ministers that
promote the amendment to the ©
constitution that would disal-
low same-sex marriages,” he
said.

The association believes that
sexual rights are a human right
and should be protected under
the constitution. Mr Smith also
emphasised that the sexual ori-
entation of parliamentarians,
priests, and pastors should
remain a private, not a public
matter.

WESTYJET Airlines yester-

Many Bahamians would be

National director for the

that “These two new flights pro-

of the Bahamas from two new
Canadian markets, Halifax in
the east and Calgary in the west.
This allows us to effectively
market our destination to con-

He further noted that the new
flights are a direct result of
negotiations with WestJet Air-

marketing and public relations
efforts in western Canada.

“We are excited about these
new flights and the potential for
growth they represent. The Cal-

“We expect to see tremen-

Tony Blair’s Mideast mission

THERE ARE drawbacks to Tony Blair’s
appointment as special envoy of the so-called
Quartet — the United States, the European
Union, the United Nations, and Russia — that is
supposed to oversee implementation of the
unrealized road map for an Israeli-Palestinian
peace pact. But there is no denying that Blair
has long recognized the necessity of negotiating
a just and durable two-state resolution to a
conflict that can otherwise be exploited by
regional dictatorships and jihadists alike. More-
over, Blair’s tenacity and shrewdness in shep-
herding Northern Ireland’s Unionists and
Republicans into a peaceful resolution of their

' historic enmity suggests he has the requisite

peacemaking skills.

To be successful in his new role, Blair will
have to overcome not only his association with
President Bush’s blunders in Iraq, but also the
unforgiving memories of British colonialism
that persist among both Palestinians and
Israelis. Blair also will be constrained by his
narrow mandate to help the government of
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas obtain
international support, build stable governing
institutions, establish the rule of law, and pro-
mote economic development.

Blair’s mandate does not include a mediating
role in negotiations between Palestinians and
Israelis. For now, any such mediator’s respon-

sibility is reserved for Secretary of State Con-
doleezza Rice. Were there to be genuine, con-
flict-ending negotiations, a team of full-time
mediators with intimate knowledge of the issues
would be needed. There are several Ameri-
cans with the right background, among them
former secretary of state James Baker, former
senator George Mitchell, and Mideast special-
ists such as Dennis Ross and Rob Malley, who
had key roles in the Camp David negotiations.

For the moment, the leaders of Saudi Ara-
bia, Egypt, and Jordan are taking the lead in
peacemaking diplomacy, not the Bush admin-
istration. They are appalled at the Hamas
coup in Gaza. They see the hand of Iran at
work there, as in Lebanon. They fear that the
Islamist tide threatens their regimes. They
believe that dividing the Palestinians in Gaza
from those on the West Bank can only be a
formula for perpetuating Israel’s occupation
and prolonging a conflict that weakens them
in their looming confrontation with Iran.

Those Arab leaders understand that Hamas
and its Iranian backers are in the ascendancy
because Israel and the United States did not
move toward genuine end-of-conflict negotia-
tions with Abbas. They fear that if a two-state
solution is not reached soon, the jihadists of
Al Qaeda may soon be loosed in their neigh-
bourhood.

Why Guantanamo is unjust

FOR MOST of the 400 prisoners at Guan-
tanamo Bay, Cuba, the only chance to chal-
lenge their confinement as enemy combatants
comes at their Combatant Status Review Tri-
bunals. No one in the Bush administration ever
claimed these proceedings were full-blown tri-
als in-which the prisoners would have the ben-
efit of an attorney. But it was not until last
week that a military insider revealed just what
a travesty of justice the tribunals actually are.

The disclosures of Army Reserve Lieutenant
Colonel Stephen E. Abraham are more reason
to close Guantanamo, move the prisoners to
mainland US prisons, and try those suspected of
war crimes in federal courts or courts martial.
Under pressure from Defence Secretary Robert
Gates, the administration is at least. moving
closer to shuttering the detention centre. Mean-
while, Republican presidential candidate Mitt
Romney is trying to burnish his anti-terror
image by saying in last month’s debate: “My
view is we ought to double Guantanamo.”

The attorneys who have worked with Guan-
tanamo prisoners but have not been allowed
to represent them in the tribunals have long
said the hearings were kangaroo courts. The
tribunals are important because they offered a
chance for prisoners to claim they were detained
by mistake in Afghanistan or Pakistan, where
US officials paid as much as $5,000 in bounties
for individuals taken into custody.

In an affidavit in a federal appeals case, Abra-
ham charged that evidence against prisoners

was often generalized and did not allege specific
acts. He also charged military commanders with
putting pressure on the officers serving on the
tribunals.

Despite the Defence Department’s effort to
answer Abraham’s criticism by stating that he
had “limited experience” with the tribunals and
that they were “fair, rigorous, and robust,”
Abraham had a sound basis for his observa-
tions. He was both a member of a tribunal and
served as a liaison between the office conduct-
ing the tribunals and intelligence agencies with
access to information about the prisoners.

In that capacity, he reviewed intelligence data
to see if there was any information favourable to
the prisoners. He said that when he asked the
intelligence agencies to state in writing that
there was no undisclosed evidence that would
benefit the prisoners, “the requests were sum-
marily denied.”

Before Romney repeats his “double Guan-
tanamo” suggestion, he might check with Gates,
who became defence secretary long after the
centre was established. Gates has said any trials
of suspects should take place elsewhere, because
“no matter how transparent, how open the tri-
als, if they took place in Guantanamo ... they
would lack credibility.” The combatant status
review tribunals lack transparency, openness,
and fairness.

Time for the

THE TRIBUNE



PLP to get
over defeat |

EDITOR, The Tribune

I HAVE resisted writing on
developments in the Bahamas
since the recent elections in the
hope that things would settle
down and both major political
parties would get on with the
jobs they were elected to do,
i.e. FNM to govern and PLP to
provide a viable opposition.

My fear is that within the PLP
resides such deep-seated disap-
pointment with the electorate

, and hunger for power that they

have decided to spend all of the
their energies causing disrup-
tion to our political processes. It
is my humble opinion that yet
again the PLP is making a huge
mistake. They will not be
rewarded by the Bahamian peo-
ple for supporting disobedient
behaviour as this will further
embolden the criminal element
that currently undermines our
society.

I and many who I come into
contact with would much prefer
a PLP that gets on with the job
of opposition party which they
have been called upon to do
and expend their efforts on
keeping the government on
track so that the best deals and
programmes are put in place to
correct the ills of our country
and to further enhance our
economy. No one is interested
in spending the next several
years embroiled in political
trickery and election courts.

Stop spoiling our environment

EDITOR, The Tribune

THIS letter is in reference to
two letters printed in the Tri-
bune.in June 16, 2007 signed
CY Noff and Ken Chaplin.

Thank you to these two per-
sons, they have expressed my
thoughts exactly. The first
refers to signs popping up all
over the island for advertis-
ing purposes. I was led to
believe this is against the law,



OTE MUES

letters@tribunemedia,. net




There is too much to be done in
our society to waste more time.
We had enough of that during
the Christie administration.

It is my belief that the PLP’s
time would be better spent
reflecting on its approach to
governance and to devise a plan
that discusses and agrees a man-
agement style should they be
given the privilege to govern
the Bahamas again. I fear that
this is a tall order for the “spe-
cial interest” group of the PLP
who are probably fearful that
details of their bloated contracts
are now subject to scrutiny by
the Ingraham government.
They also see “easy street” at
the expense of all of us coming
to a screeching halt.

I wish that Christie and Not-
tage would follow the lead of
Senator Gibson and accept that
the PLP is in opposition and
prepare themselves to serve in
that capacity. Fred Mitchell also
seems to have accepted this
reality. The Bahamian people
have spoken and the voice of
the people is the voice of God.
No matter the spin the PLP puts
on the recent elections, there
exists a sufficient number of
Bahamians who decided and
showed by their votes that they

if this is so please let it be
known on the radio, newspa-
per and TV (everyday) until
people get it, ignorance is not
bliss, it’s a mess. The public
needs to be informed, for
every illegal sign hung 20-50-
100 more seem to materialise,
when will it stop?

Next the letter from Mr
Chaplin, what will the Bahamas
look like in 10-20-30 years, a
concrete jungle with tall build-

would prefer Ingraham at the -

helm of the Bahamian govern-

ment at this time in our devel- ©

opment. Prime Minister Ingra-
ham should be allowed to gov-
ern in a peaceful manner and
to execute his responsibilities.
He too will be held accountable
for his actions at the appropri-
ate time.

I concur with Archbishop

Gomez’s admonition for the “

politicians to move on and

spare the country from politics *

as usual and, in my view, much
embarrassment. I also admon-

ish Prime Minister Ingraham “©
to carry out his duties with a -

keen eye on building institu-

tions, respect for individual ‘

rights and fundamental princi-
ples which have held our coun-
try together.
Meanwhile, I must emphasise
that the PLP should not attempt

to hold our country hostage by -

promoting and funding radical
behaviour. Bahamians are too
astute to fall for such trickery.
I truly hope someone within
the PLP listens to this cry of the
Bahamian people. We have



always been able and will con- \”

the market. We will continue |:

Antigua
demands
sanctions
against US

@ GENEVA

THE United States should
face commercial sanctions
worth more than US$3.4 billion
each year for its failure to com-
ply with a World Trade Orga-
nization ruling that its internet
gambling restrictions are ille-
gal, the Caribbean nation of
Antigua and Barbuda says,
according to Associated Press.

In its WTO compensation
request, Antigua is asking the
trade body for authorization to
target American trademarks
_ and copyrights if the US refuses

to change its legislation.

WTO officials said they had
received Antigua’s request but
were unable to provide details
on its contents... 5.-

Antigua: said the sanctions

would come into effect “short}"
ly,” ‘unless'the ‘United States.

requests a WTO arbitration
panel on the level'and scope of
the sanctions.

“While we realise this is a sig-
nificant step for Antigua and
Barbuda to take, we feel we
have no other choice in the mat-
ter,” Antigua’s Finance Minister
Errol Cort said in a statement.

Gretchen Hamel, spokes-
woman for the US Trade Rep-
resentative in Washington, said,
“We will continue to work with
Antigua and Barbuda to try to
find a mutually satisfactory res-
olution to this dispute.”.

Antigua argues that before
the ban was introduced, online
gambling provided income for
hundreds of its citizens and
helped end its reliance on
tourism, which was hurt by a
series of hurricanes in the late
1990s.

GUYANESE rice producers
are threatening legal action
against two Caribbean island
neighbors that buy subsidised
rice from other regions without
levying import taxes, an agri-
culture official has said, accord-
ing to Associated Press.

Montserrat, a_ British
Caribbean territory, and St Vin-
cent and the Grenadines regu-
larly buy rice from several Asian
nations and the United States
without levying mandatory
import taxes, according to Agri-
culture Minister Robert Persaud.

Persaud said Guyana, which
is the region’s largest rice pro-
ducer, instructed the South
American nation’s rice export
board to take their trade dispute
to the Trinidad-based Caribbean
Court of Justice, the highest judi-
cial body for much of the region.

Agriculture officials in
Montserrat and St Vincent did
not immediately return calls for
comment.

Rice is Guyana’s third largest
export earner after sugar and
gold.

Independence aa are
made in Grand Bahama

@ By DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport Reporter

FREEPORT - Plans for the
34th annual Bahamas Inde-
pendence Celebrations on
Grand Bahama were officially
unveiled on Thursday at the

:* Prime Minister’s Office in

Freeport.

Senator Kay Smith, parlia-
mentary secretary in the prime
minister’s office, announced
that activities for this year’s
celebration, include an ecu-
menical church service, a cul-
tural show, a flag-raising cere-
mony and a fireworks display.

This year’s celebration will
be held under the theme,
“Tribute to our Forbearers”.
All events will take place at
the Independence Park on
Coral Road.

Mrs Smith said that there
will be only one celebration
on the island, and invited res-
idents from throughout Grand
Bahama to attend the activi-
ties and festivities in Freeport.

The ecumenical service will
be held on July 8 at the Com-
munity at Heart Church of God
of Prophecy on Coral Road.

On July 9, a cultural show
will be held at Independence
Park at 9pm, followed by fire-
works at midnight on July 10.

“I know it has been a very
difficulty time in Grand

Bahama for many residents,
but we have put together very
exciting event and we antici-
pate a great crowd in support
of 34th celebrations,” said Mrs
Smith.

Canard Bethel, undersecre-
tary at the prime minister’s
office, said entertainment will
be provided by Bahamian
artists out of New Providence,
such as KB, as well as local .
artists and the Royal Bahamas
Police Force Band.

He also said that there will
be a junkanoo rush-out and a
“spectacular” fireworks dis-
play, which are always a huge
hit with the crowd.

Mr Bethel said residents can
get t-shirts from any printing
company as a general design
has been distributed to all on
the island.

Island administrator Rufus
Johnson said activities are also
planned for west Grand
Bahama, including a church
service and small cultural
show.

However, he encouraged
persons in those areas to make
an effort to attend the cele-
brations in Freeport.

Gloria Bain, administrator
for East End, said that an ecu-
menical service and flag rais-
ing will be held on July 10, as
will the annual High Rock
School fair.

US Embassy issues warning over
fake letter from IRS in Caribbean

@ By RUPERT MISSICK Jr
Chief Reporter

THE US embassy yesterday
warned Americans living in the
Bahamas of a scam now spread-
ing throughout the Caribbean
involving a fake Internal Rev-
enue Service fax asking for tax-
payer information.

It noted that identity thieves
use stolen personal data to
access financial accounts, run
up charges on credit cards and
apply for loans.

The IRS is aware of sever-
al identity theft scams target-
ting taxpayers. In one case,
fraudsters sent bank cus-
tomers fictitious correspon-

dence and IRS forms in an’

attempt to trick them into



Pike orca

disclosing their financial data.

In another case, abusive tax
preparers used clients’ Social
Security numbers and other
information to file false tax
returns without the clients’
knowledge.

Sometimes fraudsters pose as
the IRS itself.

Last year, the IRS shut down
a scheme in which perpetrators
used e-mail to announce to tax-
payers that they were “under
audit” and could set matters
right by divulging sensitive
financial information on an offi-
cial-looking website.

It should be noted, the
embassy s said, that the IRS does

not usé €4 Sail’ Or fax'to contact’
4 taxpayers. concerning, issues ,

related ‘to their, accounts.

In addition to the letter, the
fax also contains an altered copy
of a W-8BEN form which asks
for personal information,
including mother’s maiden
name and bank account PIN
numbers.

The embassy said that it is
not the practice of the IRS to
request this type of information
via fax.

The IRS warned that care
should always be taken when
disclosing personal information.

Bahamas have any doubt
whether a contact from the IRS
is authentic, they should call 1-

MINISTER of Health and

ing class of the University of
the West Indies’ clinical pro-
gramme in the Bahamas to play
major roles in reshaping the
country’s healthcare delivery
system while helping to improve
the health of Bahamians.

Dr Minnis also urged the
graduates to use the “critical
thinking skills” they have devel-
oped to help find the answers to
some of the health challenges
that “plague our communities.”

Twenty-two of the 25 gradu-
ates are Bahamians, led by Dr
Kristine Parker, who earned the
distinction as the ‘most out-
standing student of the class of
2007’.

Dr Parker also won awards
for being the ‘most outstanding
student’ in final MBBS exami-
nations, surgery and public
health/family medicine.

@ MINISTER of Health and
Social Development Dr
Hubert Minnis congratulates
Dr Kristine Parker for being
named the most outstanding
student of the class of 2007





@ DR Hubert Minnis addresses the graduates

Dr Minnis said there are a
number of challenges facing the
healthcare system in the
Bahamas, the region and the
world.

He said the possibility of a
human pandemic, HIV/AIDS
and other sexually transmitted
diseases, as well as the re-emer-
gence of Tuberculosis “all con-
cern us in the region and the
Bahamas.”

“The alarming increase of
chronic non-communicable dis-
eases (CNCDs) in our popula-
tion is a primary concern.

“In 2003, illnesses such as
hypertension, diabetes, coro-
nary heart disease, stroke,
chronic respiratory diseases and

cancers, have contributed to
57.5 per cent of all deaths,
according to a 2005 CNCD
Prevalence and Risk Factor
Survey.

“My challenge to you then,
graduates, is what role will you
play in reshaping our health-
care delivery system and
improving the health status of
our people,” he said.

Dr Minnis urged the young
doctors to choose a career path
which improves general health,
the health delivery system and
the productivity level in the
Bahamas.

“I also remind you of the
need to become practitioners
and researchers. Do not be sat-

gay persuasion,” he said.
“Things are different now, and
we see more men here in the
Bahamas enrolling in culinary
schools.”

“I would love to see our
(Bahamian) cuisine being men-
tioned on the same scale as
Japanese, Chinese, and Ger-
man, and we are slowly getting
there.” ;

Mr Dawkins, who closed his
business due to the slow
Freeport economy, now runs a
small snack shop at COB in
Freeport.

Students are often seen dash-
ing to the shop for his sought
after conch fritters and hot
baked pastries.

“Running a major bine in
Freeport is very costly and these
past few years have been
extremely difficult,” Mr
Dawkins said. ;

But he is not deterred and
says that he plans to re-open his
business someday.

Violent crime ‘may threaten tourism’

Warning by minister Neko Grant

THE rise of violent crime in
the region has the potential to
threaten the tourism product
of many countries, according
to Tourism. Minister Neko
Grant.

Mr Grant told participants
of the special committee on
sustainable tourism of the
Association of Caribbean
States in Trinidad on Thurs-
day, that regional partnerships
and strategies are needed to
reduce this growing threat.

“The establishment of a
regional tourism safety and secu-
rity network programme is fun-
damental to the sustainability
of tourism in the greater
Caribbean. No region, or desti-
nation within a region, can sus-
tain a vibrant tourism industry in
the face of rising crime,” he said.

“As a matter of fact,
research has shown that visi-
tors consider the safety of a
destination as a major priority
when selecting their vacation
destination. Visitor safety is as

Branville McCartney, Min-
ister of State in the Ministry of
Tourism and Aviation, made
these remarks in an address
to the 200 graduates of the
programme at their com-

’mencement ceremony at the
Church of God auditorium
Thursday night.

“The effectiveness of the
Bahamahost programme
depends on how well we are
able to deliver quality service

now, in a competitive envi-

out the Caribbean and the

the agreement, had ever for-
mally signed a commitment to
protect the interest of their nat-
ural, economic and socio-cul-
tural resources by establishing a
sustainable tourism zone.

“The member states recog-
nised the very important fact
that while tourism is the catalyst
fueling economic development
inclusive of job creation, for-
eign exchange earnings and
poverty alleviation, it is also the
industry with the greatest
potential to destroy the same
resources it relies on for’ eco-
nomic growth,” he said.

The minister also announced

that the Bahamas is ready to
begin the ratification of the con-
vention on sustainable tourism,
which aims to ensure that des-
tinations can attract visitors, but
at the same time, do so in a way
that would not harm the physi-
cal environment or the commu-
nities that surround them.

Mr Grant also emphasised that
the establishment of foreign lan-
guage centres and the delivery
of language training skills to
nationals of ACS member states
is critical in forging a better
understanding between these
diverse cultures as well as an
impetus to promote trade.

between Banco Atlantico (Bahamas) Bank & Trust Limited (Banco Atlantico) ‘and Banco
de Sabadell, S.A. on the one hand and EFG, acting for and on behalf of the Bank, on the
other hand, the Bank agreed to buy the majority of the Private Banking Business (as
defined in the agreement) of Banco Atlantico. The closing date of the agreement was 16-

Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
tera!) TR Seb PST AL

cab ote ATR UA Mink (GOtisatless dead

shéet are set out below’? '% °"4

» The principal -accountifig’ policies ‘applied: in the preparation of this consolidated balance

(a) ~ Basis of presentation

The Group’s consolidated balance sheet has been prepared in accordance with
International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS). The consolidated balance sheet
has been prepared under the historical cost convention. ‘

The preparation of the balance sheet in accordance with IFRS requires the use of

certain critical accounting estimates. It also requires management to exercise its

judgment in the process of applying the Group’s accounting policies. Actual results
’ could differ from those estimates.

With the exception of the new disclosure requirements of IFRS 7 Financial
Instruments: Disclosures, and amendments to IAS 1 Presentation of Financial
Statements regarding capital disclosures, that become effective 1 January 2007, the
application of new standards and interpretations issued but not yet effective will not
have a material impact on the Group’s consolidated balance sheet in the period of
initial application. On adoption, IFRS 7 will supercede IAS 30 and the disclosure
requirements of IAS 32.

(b) Consolidation

Subsidiaries are all entities over which the Group has the power to govern the
financial and operating policies, generally accompanying a shareholding of more
than one half of the voting rights. Subsidiaries are fully consolidated from the date
on which control is transferred to the Group; they are de-consolidated from the-date
on which control ceases.

This consolidated balance sheet includes the accounts of the Bank and its wholly
owned subsidiaries, namely, Eradani Ltd., Geminorum Ltd. and Fornacis Ltd., after
elimination of all significant intercompany balances, transactions~and gains. The
subsidiaries are nominee companies domiciled in The Bahamas. The Bank receives
all income and bears all expenses of these entities.

(c) Foreign currency translation

Items included in the balance sheet of each of the Group’s entities are measured
using the currency~of the primary economic environment in which the entity
operates (the functional currency). The consolidated balance sheet is presented in
United States dollars, which is the Bank’s functional and presentation currency.

Monetary assets and liabilities denominated in foreign currencies are translated into
the functional currency using the rate of exchange prevailing at the balance sheet
date. Foreign currency transactions are translated into the functional currency using
exchange rates prevailing at the dates of the transactions.

(d) Loans and advances to customers

Loans and advances to customers are classified as loans and receivables, which are
non-derivative finaneial assets with fixed or determinable payments, which are not
quoted on an active market. All outstanding loans and advances to customers were
originated by the Bank and were recognized when cash was advanced to borrowers.
Advances to customers are due on demand. These financial assets are carried at
amortized cost using the effective interest method and are assessed for impairment
at each balance sheet date. Cash and/or investment securities held by the Bank on
behalf of the borrowers adequately collateralise both loans and advances to
customers. Accordingly, the Bank has not established a provision for impairment of
loans and advances to customers

(e) Intangible assets

Intangible assets are stated at cost less accumulated amortization and accumulated
impairment losses. Intangible assets with a finite useful life are amortized to ‘ie
consolidated income statement on a straight-line basis over their estimated useful
lives which are reviewed on an annual basis. Amortization commences when the
intangible asset is available for use. The residual values of intangible assets are
assumed to be zero. The following are the main categories of intangible assets.

8c

THE TRIBUNE

Goodwill

Goodwill represents the excess of the cost of an acquisition over the fair value of
the Group’s share of the net identifiable assets of the acquired business entity at the
date of acquisition. Goodwill is tested annually for impairment and carried at cost
less accumulated impairment losses. Impairment losses previously recognized are
not reversed.

Gains and losses on the disposal of an entity include the carrying amount of
goodwill relating to the entity sold.

Customer relationship agreement

This intangible asset represents the purchase price of customer bases acquired
pursuant to a customer relationship agreement.

Non-competition agreement

This intangible asset represents the estimated cost incurred in respect of a non-
competition agreement entered into with a former senior banking officer of Banco
Atlantico.

These identifiable intangible assets are amortized on a straight-line basis over their
estimated useful lives‘ which are as follows: :

Customer relationship agreement 10 years
Non-competition agreement 15 years

(f) , Fiduciary activities

The Group acts as trustee and in other fiduciary capacities that result in the holding
or placing of assets ‘On behalf of individuals, companies and other institutions.
These assets and income arising thereon are excluded from this consolidated balance
sheet, as they are not assets and income of the Group.

(g) Property and equipment

Costs incurred related to property and equipment, including: leasehold
improvements; vehicles; communication and computer equipment; and furniture and
office equipment, have been capitalized and included in other assets. These assets
are stated at historical cost less accumulated depreciation and are being depreciated
on a Straight-line basis over their useful lives as follows:

' Leasehold improvements 10 years
Vehicles 5 years
Communication equipment 5 years
Computer equipment 3 years
Furniture and office equipment 5 years

(h) Leases

The leases entered into by the Group are primarily operating leases. The total
payments made under the operating leases are charged to general and administrative
expenses in the consolidated income statement on a straight-line basis over the
period of the lease.

When an operating lease is terminated before the lease period has expired, any
payment required to be made to the lessor by way of penalty is recognized as an
expense in the period in which termination takes place.

Contingencies and Commitments

(a) Credit commitments
Credit commitments include credit card guarantees and stand-by letters of credit
issued on behalf of customers. Exposure to loss is represented by the contractual
amount of those instruments; however, the Group uses credit and hypothecation
criteria when entering into these commitments and conditional obligations as it does
for loans.

As of 31 December 2006, credit card guarantees amounted to $1,133,000 and stand-
by letters of credit entered into on behalf of customers, in respect of which there are |
corresponding obligations by customers, amounted to $549,000.

9. Financial Risk Management

The Group’s activities expose it to a variety of financial risks and those activities involve
the analysis, evaluation, acceptance and management of some degree of risk or
combination of risks. Taking risk is core to the financial business, and the operational
risks are an inevitable consequence of being in business. The Group’s aim is therefore to
achieve an appropriate balance between risk and return and minimize potential adverse
effects on the Group’s financial performance.

(a) Fiduciary risk

The Group provides advisory, trustee and administration services to customers.
These activities give rise to fiduciary risk, which is the risk that the Group may fail
in carrying out certain mandates in accordance with the wishes of its customers. To
manage this exposure, the Group generally takes a conservative approach in its
fiduciary undertakings for customers.

(b) Liquidity risk

This is the risk that the Group may not have the necessary liquidity to meet its
contractual obligations. The Group manages its liquidity by attempting to match its
liabilities with assets of similar maturity periods. Assets and liabilities of the Group
may be classified, based on the period remaining from the reporting date to the
contractual maturity date, as follows:

As of 31 December 2006

Net liquidity gap —14,093 _ (8,862) __(3,135) ___ 6,585 8.681

(c) Currency risk

Currency risk emanates from the possibility that the value of a financial instrument
will fluctuate due to changes in foreign exchange rates. The Group minimizes its
risk by monitoring limit levels of foreign currency particularly those susceptible to
foreign exchange rate volatility. The table below summarizes the Group’s exposure
to currency risk:

Net exposure

— 85. 84 8,572 __(67)___ 8,681



(d) Credit risk

Credit risk arises from the failure of a counterparty to perform according to the
terms of the contract. From this perspective, the Group’s exposure to credit risk is
primarily concentrated in cash and money market papers, due from banks, loans and
advances to customers, guarantees and stand-by letters of credit issued. The
majority of deposits have been placed with the Parent. Deposits are also held with
high quality international institutions. The majority of loans and advances to
customers are short-term and all are fully secured by assets managed by the Group
on behalf of the borrowers. The Group also uses other methods, such as, credit
monitoring techniques including collateral and credit exposure limits policies. ‘The
element of risk associated with the related party balances is disclosed in Note 8.

The assets and liabilities of the Group are geographically located as follows:

SATURDAY, JUNE 30, 2007, PAGE 9

(e) Interest rate risk

Cash flow interest rate risk is the risk that the future cash flows of a financial
instrument will fluctuate because of changes in market interest rates. Fair value
interest rate risk is the risk that the value of a financial instrument will fluctuate
because of changes in market interest rates. The Group’s exposure to interest rate
risks is minimal as the relevant financial instruments are usually short-term in nature
and are therefore repriced on maturity.

The table below summarizes the Group’s exposure to interest rate risks. It includes

the Group’s financial instruments at carrying amounts, categorized by ‘the
contractual maturity dates.

(i) Concentration of business risk

As of 31 December 2006, the Bank managed approximately $254 million in assets,
of which ten (10) clients represent twenty-two percent (22%).

10. Acquisition

During the period the Bank acquired the Private Banking Business of Banco Atlantico as
defined in the Agreement referred to in Note 1. :

The acquisition has been accounted for using the purchase method of accounting. The
closing date for the purchase of the Private Book of Business was 16 February 2006. Part of
the purchase consideration was paid to Banco de Sabadell, S.A~on signing of the
Agreement. Another portion was paid during the period from 19 December 2005 (date of
incorporation) to 31 December 2006. The deferred cash consideration has been accrued and
is included in other liabilities at 31 December 2006. The net purchase price is reflected in
‘the consolidated balance sheet for the year ended 31 December 2006.

11. Fair Value of Financial Instruments

Financial instruments utilized by the Group include recorded’assets and liabilities, as well
as items that primarily involve off-balance sheet risk. The majority of the Group’s
financial instruments is short-term and bears interest rates that automatically reset to
market on a periodic basis. Accordingly, the estimated fair values are not significantly
different from the carrying value for each major category of the Group’s recorded financial
assets and liabilities.

12. Subsequent Events

On 26 March 2007, the Board of Directors resolved to change the name of the Bank from
EFG Bank & Trust (Bahamas) Limited to EFG Bank & Trust (Bahamas) Ltd with
immediate effect. Additionally, a resolution was passed on that same date to change the
address of the registered office of the Bank to Centre of Commerce, Second Floor, 1 Bay
Street, Nassau, The Bahamag. :

To the Shareholder of EFG Bank & Trust (Bahamas) Limited

“We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheet of EFG Bank & Trust (Bahamas).

Limited (the Bank) and its subsidiaries (together, the Group), as of 31 December 2006 and a
summary of significant accounting policies and other explanatory notes.

Management’s Responsibility for the Financial Statements

Management is responsible for the preparation and fair presentation of this consolidated balance ;
sheet in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards. This responsibility
includes: designing, implementing and maintaining internal control relevant to the preparation
and fair presentation of financial statements that are free from material misstatement, whether
due to fraud or error; selecting and applying appropriate accounting policies; and making
accounting estimates that are reasonable in the circumstances. .

Auditors’ Responsibility

Our responsibility is to express an opinion on this consolidated balance sheet based on our audit.
We conducted our audit in accordance with International Standards on Auditing. Those
standards require that we comply with ethical requirements and plan and perform the audit to
obtain reasonable assurance whether the balance sheet is free from material misstatement.

An audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the amounts and
disclosures in the financial statements. The procedures selected depend on the auditors’
judgment, including the assessment of the risks of material misstatement of the , financial
statements, whether due to fraud or error. In making those risk assessments, the auditors
consider internal control relevant to the entity’s preparation and fair presentation of the financial
statements in order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not
for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the entity’s internal control. An
audit also includes evaluating the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the
reasonableness of accounting estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall
presentation of the financial statements.

We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a
basis for our audit opinion.

Opinion

In our opinion, the accompanying consolidated balance sheet presents fairly, in all material
respects, the financial position of the Group as of 31 December 2006, in accordance with
International Financial Reporting Standards.

Emphasis of Matter

Without qualifying our opinion, we.emphasise that the accompanying consolidated balance
sheet does not comprise a complete set of financial statements in accordance with International
Financial Reporting Standards. Information on results of operations, cash flows and changes in
equity is necessary to obtain a complete understanding of the financial position, performance
and changes in financial position of the Group.

Alarm as dead bird
sightings continue

FROM page one

Erica Gates, operator of
Grand Bahama Nature Tours,
an eco-tour company that con-
ducts nature tours on Grand
Bahama, is particularly con-
cerned about the situation.

Mrs Gates said that she spot-
ted one dead Cory Shearwater
on the beach in Lucaya on
Wednesday.

She said although it is not
known whether the other dead
birds sightings were Cory Shear-
waters, persons have described
the birds as having hooked bills.

“So, it could have been one
Cory Shearwater, and it could
have all been Cory Shearwa-
ters. I don’t know, but they
seem to describe them as sea
birds with hooked bills,” she
said.

Mrs Gates, who is also an
expert bird watcher, said the
Cory Shearwater seabirds live
out to sea and only come to
land to nest.

“And so, if they are contami-
nated by something it would
have happened while feeding
out at sea.

“T have concerns because usu- .

ally these deaths occur through
ingestion of food — what the
birds eat. And in this case it
would be fish. And that would
be a concern for all of us.

“If these are all the same
birds, then all they eat is fish.
They don’t eat algae, only fish.
So we all should be concerned,”
said Mrs Gates.

According to reports, a BAS-
RA official on Grand Bahama
discovered four dead birds
while walking on William’s
Town Beach on Tuesday.

Public Analyst Mike Wallace

had issued a press release that

the department of Environ-
mental Health had received
reports of dead bird sightings
from residents in East Grand
Bahama.

It is believed that some of the
birds have been collected for

examination by the Department
of Agriculture.

According to the article on
the website www.abcaction-
news.com, The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission in Martin County, Flori-
da, has received reports of more
than 200 dead or sick greater
Shearwaters, a gull-like bird,
since Saturday along Florida's
east coast.

The birds have been found
from Hobe Sound in Martin
County to South Ponte Vedra
Beach in St. Johns County.

According to the article, local
wildlife rehabilitators report
numerous emaciated and dehy-
drated birds as well.

Florida Researchers are
examining the dead birds to
investigate the cause of the
deaths. Initial necropsy results
are not definitive; however, pre-
liminary findings suggest star-
vation during the migration
process played a role. Addi-
tional test results are pending.

Man killed outside home

According to Mr Gibson, the
driving factor behind the Urban
Renewal Project’s success was
the integration of police offi-
cers in the programme. “] don’t
see how (the programme) can
work properly without the teeth
of police support.” Mr Gibson
stated he was speaking to The
Tribune on behalf of the vic-
tim’s family and he was not

“taking advantage of the situa-
tion politically.”

Sources tell The Tribune that
workers at the Urban Renewal
Centre “are afraid to work there
after 4pm” and vacate the centre
as soon as possible because
there is no police presence. A
representative from the Urban
Renewal Project said that before
police support was removed,
centres were open until mid-
night, with some centres remain-

ing open around the clock.

In May of this year, newly
appointed Minister of National
Security, Tommy Turnquest,
stated that there would be
“adjustments” to the Urban
Renewal Programme, which
would include relocating police
officers out of the centres and
back to police stations.

Mr Turnquest could not be
reached for comment up to
press time.

Carl Bethel makes partnership offer
to school parents and students

FROM page one

“We can ameliorate the
unacceptable incidents of anti-
social encounters among our
student population and require
diligence and respect for
authority in all students,
respect for the teachers in the
classroom, and bring order and
stability both to the classroom
and the school yard and envi-
ronments around our schools,”
the minister said.

Earlier in his address, the
minister told delegates that their
struggle was his struggle, and
that he shared their vision, their
pains, and their goals. He
affirmed his and his ministry’s
commitment to fostering better
links between the two.

Minister Bethel told union
members that, his ministry, in
conjunction with school princi-
pals and contractors, have
already started school repairs,
and that present estimates have
repairs exceeding the $9 million
he announced last week.

The minister said, however,
his ministry is doing what it has
to do in order to stick to its plan
of improving the learning envi-
ronment.

“Realizing that the public
expectations of the educational
system are high, and costs
involved in facilitating the deliv-
ery of quality education are also
high, the government has com-
mitted itself to the delivery of
the resources,” said Minister
Bethel.

In relation, Minister Bethel

then turned to parents and stu-
dents saying: “We will now
require that parents and stu-
dents take a greater sense of
ownership and responsibility in
the upkeep of the school
premises.

“It has always been a mys-
tery to me that children in the
private school sector, whose
parents often have to pay hefty

school fees and other associated
expenses, they don’t break up
the school, write graffiti on it,
and deface property.

“But our children, whose
parents do not have to pay
tuition fees, who basically
receive education free of
charge, often show little respect
for the schools. This has to
change,” he said.

Before closing his address
to BUT members, Minister
Bethel did not leave without
telling his audience: “We all
have to take greater ownership
in that which has been given to
us by the grace of God at little
or no cost.”

Also addressing delegates at
yesterday’s conference, union
President Mrs. Ida Poitier-Turn-
quest also pledged union sup-

istry of Education.

Turnquest said: “The union
hopes that the partnership that
we are forging will grow
stronger and stronger as we
work toward a real transforma-
tion of education in the
Bahamas.

She noted that only through
access to free quality education,
for all Bahamians, will the many
social ills in our society begin
to subside.

“We can build more prison
cells and hire more law
enforcement agents to ensure
that they are filled, but this will
do nothing to reduce the level
of fear felt by the community,”
said the union head. “All man-
ner of crime will continue to
rise.”

While education is not the
answer to every social ill, Mrs
Poitier-Turnquest said, “a well-
educated society is far less like-
ly to devour itself.”

You are the dealer, both sides vul-

nerable, and have opened One-Club:.

Partner responds One Diamond.
What would you bid now with each
of the following five hands?

1. @K93 ¥ AQ @ J865 & KI94

2.@AQ VAI Q43 & KQI862

3.45 ¥AQ93 @ KJ7 & AKQ73

1. One notrump. Though it is nor-
mal to raise partner whenever you
have four tumps — and it might
therefore be contended that the
proper rebid is two diamonds —
there are good reasons for preferring
one notrump.

First, the hand is well-suited for
notrump play, which is best
expressed by a rebid of one notrump.
A raise in diamonds would tend io
imply more in the way of distribu-
tional values, such as a singleton or a
couple of doubletons, which is not
the case here.

Also, the opponents’ silence makes
it more likely that partner has a good
hand and is headed for game. If this
hope materializes, a nine-trick
notrump game seems far more prom-

majors ;suggest that ,the- hand: will
play better from your side of the
table.

Bidding Quiz




2. Three notrump. You should be
unwilling to settle for less than three
notrump once partner responds with
a diamond. A jump to two notrump
or three clubs would run the risk of a
pass, since either of these bids would
merely invite, but not force, partner
to bid again.

3. Two hearts. The jump-shift in
hearts forces partner to bid again and
commits the partnership to game.
With this gigantic hand, you can
afford to insist on another response,
even though partner might have only
six points. Game, perhaps even a
slam, is highly probable in clubs, dia-
monds, hearts or notrump.

4. One spade. You have no choice
but to try to describe your distribu-
tion on an installment-plan basis,
bidding spades now and showing
diamond support later to identify the
three-suited nature of your hand. Of
course, you have a strong preference
for clubs as trumps over spades, but
you cannot afford to bypass the pos-
sibility that partner has four-card
spade support.

5. Four notrump. The number of ©

aces partner has is the key to how

many tricks you can make with dia- -

.five diamonds; if he shows one ace,
you bid six diamonds; if he shows
two aces, you bid seven diamonds.

2007 QC students
celebrate their
sraduation day

with awards

ON June 15, the students of
the Queen’s College class of
2007 celebrated the success-
ful completion of their high
school career.

The annual graduation, held
under the theme “No Mission
Is Impossible” was conducted
with the pomp and dignity
befitting this special occasion.

During this ceremony, stu-
dents were presented with
subject prizes for all of the
subjects pursued by grade 12
students as well as a number
of special awards. :

The AP Calculus Prize and
the AP Economics Prize.were
awarded to head boy Gilbert
Cassar; the AP French Prize
was awarded to Joshua
Thompson; AP History to
Bryann Hepburn; AP Lan-
guage and Composition to
Laurent King and Cecily
Dean; AP Psychology to Mar-
cus *Key and~Gabrielle
Misiewiez; AP Spanish to
Ezzard,Rolle; AS Literature
to Gabrielle Misiewicz.

These students and scores
of others successfully com-
pleted their BGCSEs in grade

eleven and were therefore

able to follow advanced cours-
es in grade twelve.

Some of the special awards
which were presented were:

the Beverly Brice Memorial
Award, which is presented to
a well-rounded female student
who demonstrates strong lead-
ership skills and serves as a
role model and inspiration to
others. This was presented to
Gabrielle Misiewicz.

Leadership

The School Pride Award,
which recognises a student
whose outstanding energy and
leadership have greatly
enhanced the school’s spirit,
was presented to Gregory
Maillis.

The Foundation Award,
which is presented to the stu-
dent who is committed to the
values of the school, is a role

- model for others, an ambas-

sador for the school, a com-
munity builder and one who
embodies the true ethos of

Queen’s College, was pre-.

sented to Ashley Powell.

The Principal’s Prize, which
is awarded to the student who
displays the most consistent
effort and excellence, was pre-
sented to Lindsay Parker.

Each year the top four stu-
dents are presented with very
special awards.

There was a three-way tie

@ GABRIELLE Misiewicz, Valedictorian, and Brittney Culmer, Salutatorian, receive their awards

for the Parkinson Prize for
Academic Excellence and the
students receiving these pres-
tigious awards were, Tenaj
Ferguson, Ezzard Rolle and
Gilbert Cassar.

The Salutatorian Prize, giv-
en for the second highest
achieving student and named
for Susan Eliza Young was
awarded to Brittney Culmer
and the Valedictorian Prize,
also named for Susan Eliza
Young, was awarded to
Gabrielle Misiewicz.

Dr Desiree Cox, the first
Bahamian Rhodes Scholar
and former Queen’s College
student was the keynote
speaker. During her address
she challenged the graduates
to think outside the box, to be
free a spirit, to trust their
instincts, to live in the
moment.

The majority of the gradu-

ates will be furthering their~

education at tertiary institu-
tions abroad.

This has been made possible
by the awarding of significant
scholarships from various
organisations and from the
various schools to which they
have been accepted. The value
of the total number of schol-
arships received was almost
$500,000.



from Heather Wood, deputy head of high school, Henry Knowles deputy head of high school, and
Shawn Turnquest, vice-principal and head oi *igh school.

Government is
blamed for taking
officers away from
area as murder toll
reaches 42.

@ By TANEKA THOMPSON

ANGRY neighbours are
blaming government for the
death of David Rolle, who died
on the steps of a deserted
Urban Renewal building after
being shot several times.

Rolle, the country’s 42nd
murder victim, made a frantic
call to his mother before dying
of his injuries, sources told The
Tribune.

After fleeing his attacker, he
reportedly sought help from the
police officers he expected to
be manning the Nassau Village
Urban Renewal office — only to
find the building closed.

Last night, residents of the
area hit out at the FNM admin-
istration for removing police
officers from Urban Renewal
Project — claiming that were it
not for this, Rolle would still be
alive.

Shortly after 10pm Thursday,
Rolle was gunned down outside
his home in the Nassau Village
subdivision. It is the latest in an
alarming spree of killings that
has the Bahamas on track to
see an all time high of 80 mur-
ders this year.

_ According to a statement
released by the Royal Bahamas
Police Force, Rolle of Stack
Avenue, arrived home from
work around 10pm. Intending

to visit a female companion in
the area, he was getting out of
his vehicle when a concealed
gunman fatally shot him sever-
al times.

Sources said that Rolle ran
into the yard of the Urban

Renewal Centre opposite his .

home expecting police officers
to be on the premises. Finding
the centre closed and deserted,
Rolle made a cell phone call to
his mother. Moments later his
mother rushed outside to find
her son dead, with several gun-
shot wounds in his body.

_ Assistant Superintendent
Walter Evans, of the Royal
Bahamas Police Force, told The
Tribune that an “unidentified
male” was spotted leaving the
area shortly after the murder.
He further noted that as it was
“very early in the investigation”
no further comments could be
made on the case.

Many angry residents of the
area are outraged at the mur-
der, saying had there been a
police presence at the Urban
Renewal Project centre, David
would still be alive today. A
neighbour of the victim, who
wished to remain anonymous,
spoke to The Tribune: "I could-
n't believe it when I found out
what happened last night. I ain’t
want start anything, but before
the election a police car was

centre)."

"If that place was open, this
wouldn't a happen," he said, his
eyes fixed on the victim's home.

Kenyatta Gibson, MP for the
Kennedy Constituency, spoke
to The Tribune about the
tragedy. “I have seen what
Urban Renewal has done to
change Nassau Village,” he said
on Friday morning. “I have seen

troubled young men become .

police officers as a result of
being involved with the pro-
gramme. I have seen lives trans-
formed.”

In 2003, the iene PP

administration formed the
award-winning Urban Renewal
Project in an effort to ensure
“effective community policing
and employing all available
means of making communities
safe for everyone.” By increas-
ing police presence in inner city
communities and integrating
police patrols in urban areas,
the programme was what many

‘considered to be a resounding
‘success in the fight against

crime. There are currently nine
Project centres throughout New
Providence.

Alarm as dead
bird sightings
continue

@ By DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport Reporter

FREEPORT - The mysterious death
of numerous seabirds in waters off
Grand Bahama is causing residents great
concern.

New dead bird sightings continue to be
reported, particularly in East Grand
Bahama where residents reported seeing
dead birds floating in the water a few
weeks ago.

According to reports, a large number
of dead birds were again spotted 15 miles
off Freeport last week. And, there have
also been sightings as far as Bimini, and

. Florida.

Local veterinarians and nature experts
here on Grand Bahama are baffled as to
what could be causing the deaths of these
sea birds, which are believed to be the
Cory Shearwaters.

Ministry of Agriculture officials in
Freeport and New Providence could not
be reached for comments up to press
time on Friday.

Carl Bethel makes

partnership offer

to school parents
and students

â„¢ By MARK HUMES

EDUCATION Minister Carl Bethel
delivered a strong message to parents
and students yesterday, saying that his
ministry will expect them to take greater
ownership in the country’s public school
educational process.

In his address to union members at
the opening of their 60th annual general
meeting, Minister Bethel said: “I would
like for you to devote a small portion of
your time to consider ways in which we,
hand in hand, can work to improve the
partnership that we seek to instil and
build between the ministry and the
union.”

“Through that enhanced cooperation,”
continued the minister, “we can posi-
tively impact national scores at all grade
levels, and together we can ensure that
our graduates are better suited to tran-
sition directly to the work field or to fur-
ther training, if they so decide.

Wayne Munroe
reported to win
presidency of
Bar Association

A three-way race for the presidency of
the Bahamas Bar Association ended yes-
terday with the incumbent Wayne
Munroe reportedly holding on to the
position.

Mr Munroe was challenged by Brian
Simms and Brian Moree.

Elections began at 3pm yesterday and
the outcome of the proceedings became
clear at around 6pm.

An estimated 900 lawyers in the
Bahamas were eligible to vote in the
process.

Mr Munroe, a partner of the Lock-
hart, Munroe and Co law firm, has in
recent times become a prominent figure
in the Bahamian and international press
— most notably for representing the
deceased US celebrity Anna Nicole
Smith and her partner Howard K Stern.

He is currently also one of the lawyers
representing the PLP in its election court
cases.

ed their $20,000 cheque from

Howanell Thompson-Mack-

she explained how her hus-

all the clues out on the bed
the night before to try to fig-
ure out the answer. She was
the first caller to correctly
guess the sound to be a utility
light being dragged through a
PVC pipe.

Mrs Mackey said she would
have to think and meditate
about what she would do with
the money. The cheque was

presented by “Mista Smith”,

her call during his show.

Exhibition puts
focus on AIDS

@ BY JEFFARAH GIBSON

OVER the past two decades
HIV/AIDS has wreaked havoc
on Bahamian families, as vic-
tims of the disease have been
reluctant to share their status
with others for fear of discrimi-
nation.

In partnership with the AIDS
Foundation, Antonius Roberts,
one of the premier artists in the

Bahamas, has set about trying"

break this stigma and lift the
veil of silence surrounding the
disease.

He has made the lives of HIV
positive persons the subject of
his new exhibition, entitled,
“Emerging through the Shad-
ows... A Celebration of Hope”.

Mr Roberts said that as a
Bahamian artist, he would like
to challenge other artists to get
involved in using their talents
to make significant statements
about HIV/AIDS.

Because Bahamians who are
HIV positive usually experience
ostracism, rejection, discrimi-
nation and avoidance, Roberts
is seeking to give them a voice
through his art.

Stigma

Camille Barnett, president of
the AIDS Foundation, said that
the time has come for our soci-
ety to allow “our brothers and
sisters to emerge from the shad-
ows of stigma and discrimina-
tion”.

The official unveiling of the
exhibition will be held on July 2
at the Central Bank of the
Bahamas between the hours of
6 and 9pm.

The show is made up of 21
silhouettes of persons living
with HIV/AIDS in. the
Bahamas.

“These are powerfully

that we hope will put a face on
HIV/AIDS in the Bahamas
without compromising the pri- .
vacy of the models by putting
the actual face in the public are-

“na,” said Ms Barnett.

This event is the first of a
three part series conceived by
Mr Roberts. With 50 per cent of
the sales being donated to the
foundation, serious art collec-
tors are encouraged to view
Roberts’ most recent paintings
with a view to purchasing one of
them and thereby making a
contribution to fight against
HIV/AIDS.

With the majority of art work
priced at $10,000, and with a
goal of over $100,000, this fund
raising event will help in the
process of purchasing a house
for use as a group home for
boys, and in the near future pro-
vide scholarships for those in
need.

Man charged
with burglary
and firearm

offences
FREEPORT - An Eight
Mile Rock man_ was

arraigned in Freeport Magis-
trate’s Court in connection
with a shooting and burglary
incident last week at Free-
town in East Grand Bahama.

Hensley Sands, 24, of Jones
Town, was charged with bur-
glary, attempted armed rob-
bery, and possession of
firearm and ammunition.

The prosecution alleged
that between 10pm on Thurs-
day, June 21, and 2am on
June 22, at Freetown, the
accused, being concerned
with another and while
armed with a .45 semi-auto-
matic pistol loaded with five
rounds of ammunition, broke
and entered the home of
Lesco Pennerman, with
intent to rob Mr Pennerman.

Sands, who was not repre-
sented by a lawyer, was not
required to enter a plea to
the charges.

The matter was adjourned
to August 28 when a prelim-
inary inquiry will be held.

Sands was remanded to
Her Majesty’s Prison.

BAHAMIANS should fight
to protect their human rights
and fundamental freedoms said
Fred Smith, president of the

Grand Bahama Human Rights .

Association.

He was responding to an arti-
cle quoting statements by Pastor
Rex Major, published in The
Tribune yesterday. Criticising
the “soft attitude” that he
believes liberal thinking creates,
Pastor Major called for the
police to institute random
searches of citizens as part of
the fight against crime.

To those who would cry out
that the rights of Bahamians
were being stepped on by law
enforcement officers, Pastor
Major replied: “Keep your free-
doms and your rights — and let
that be the avenue by which
your whole life is taken.”

While the Grand Bahama
Human Rights Association has
previously worked closely with
the pastor, they believe his sug-
gestion.that compromising
human rights and fundamental



HB FRED Smith

freedoms in order to fight crime
is unacceptable, Mr Smith said.
He pointed out that chapter

three of the constitution was

put in place to protect individ-
uals from the abuse of human
rights.

The government has also
signed two international decla-
rations of human rights which
aim at allowing the country to
balance rights, duties, and oblig-
ations in society.

If its citizens relinquish their

rights for any reason, including

hts must be defended

Fred Smith speaks out after comments
on ‘soft attitude’ made by pastor

fighting crime, the country
would be heading down a “slip-
pery slope” ending in the possi-
ble loss of all rights, Mr Smith
warned.

“Historically the church, in
particular the Catholic Church,
has been a staunch supporter
of human rights throughout the
world. In the Bahamas, our
association is alarmed that
many pastors and reverends
from many denominations have
disregarded human rights in
pursuit of extreme punishment
and expedience from the gov-
ernment,” he said.

This approach creates disad-
vantages for accused persons,
as it becomes harder for them
to receive a fair trial, he said.

It is not the Attorney Gen-
eral’s Office’s job to persecute
the accused, but rather to pros-

ecute them, and attitudes to the
contrary are contributing to the
“near state of collapse” the
criminal judicial system in the
Bahamas is facing, according to
Mr Smith.

These concerns are especially

. important and harder to address

as neither the PLP nor the FNM
seem willing fulfill a decades
old promise to establish a legal
aid system to provide accused
persons with proper represen-
tation, he added.

Unfortunately, Mr Smith
said, he believes that people are
more focused on convictions
than on allowing others to
receive fair trials.

Many of these same people
continue to promote punish-
ments such as flogging and
whipping, as well as the death
penalty.

Mr Smith said his association
condemns all of these penalties,
emphasising that the Bahamas
is one of the few countries
remaining that still uses them.

Mr Smith also commented on
the statements made by Pastor
Rex against homosexual rela-
tionships.

“Our association also takes
issue with the ministers that
promote the amendment to the ©
constitution that would disal-
low same-sex marriages,” he
said.

The association believes that
sexual rights are a human right
and should be protected under
the constitution. Mr Smith also
emphasised that the sexual ori-
entation of parliamentarians,
priests, and pastors should
remain a private, not a public
matter.

WESTYJET Airlines yester-

Many Bahamians would be

in Nova Scotia as it is the place
where many Bahamian students

National director for the
Bahamas Tourist Office in

that “These two new flights pro-
vide easier access to the islands
of the Bahamas from two new
Canadian markets, Halifax in
the east and Calgary in the west.
This allows us to effectively
market our destination to con-
sumers across the entire length

He further noted that the new
flights are a direct result of
negotiations with WestJet Air-
lines and the tourist office’s
marketing and public relations
efforts in western Canada.

“We are excited about these
new flights and the potential for
growth they represent. The Cal-

Tony Blair’s Mideast mission

THERE ARE drawbacks to Tony Blair’s
appointment as special envoy of the so-called
Quartet — the United States, the European
Union, the United Nations, and Russia — that is
supposed to oversee implementation of the
unrealized road map for an Israeli-Palestinian
peace pact. But there is no denying that Blair
has long recognized the necessity of negotiating
a just and durable two-state resolution to a
conflict that can otherwise be exploited by
regional dictatorships and jihadists alike. More-
over, Blair’s tenacity and shrewdness in shep-
herding Northern Ireland’s Unionists and
Republicans into a peaceful resolution of their

' historic enmity suggests he has the requisite

peacemaking skills.

To be successful in his new role, Blair will
have to overcome not only his association with
President Bush’s blunders in Iraq, but also the
unforgiving memories of British colonialism
that persist among both Palestinians and
Israelis. Blair also will be constrained by his
narrow mandate to help the government of
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas obtain
international support, build stable governing
institutions, establish the rule of law, and pro-
mote economic development.

Blair’s mandate does not include a mediating
role in negotiations between Palestinians and
Israelis. For now, any such mediator’s respon-

sibility is reserved for Secretary of State Con-
doleezza Rice. Were there to be genuine, con-
flict-ending negotiations, a team of full-time
mediators with intimate knowledge of the issues
would be needed. There are several Ameri-
cans with the right background, among them
former secretary of state James Baker, former
senator George Mitchell, and Mideast special-
ists such as Dennis Ross and Rob Malley, who
had key roles in the Camp David negotiations.

For the moment, the leaders of Saudi Ara-
bia, Egypt, and Jordan are taking the lead in
peacemaking diplomacy, not the Bush admin-
istration. They are appalled at the Hamas
coup in Gaza. They see the hand of Iran at
work there, as in Lebanon. They fear that the
Islamist tide threatens their regimes. They
believe that dividing the Palestinians in Gaza
from those on the West Bank can only be a
formula for perpetuating Israel’s occupation
and prolonging a conflict that weakens them
in their looming confrontation with Iran.

Those Arab leaders understand that Hamas
and its Iranian backers are in the ascendancy
because Israel and the United States did not
move toward genuine end-of-conflict negotia-
tions with Abbas. They fear that if a two-state
solution is not reached soon, the jihadists of
Al Qaeda may soon be loosed in their neigh-
bourhood.

Why Guantanamo is unjust

FOR MOST of the 400 prisoners at Guan-
tanamo Bay, Cuba, the only chance to chal-
lenge their confinement as enemy combatants
comes at their Combatant Status Review Tri-
bunals. No one in the Bush administration ever
claimed these proceedings were full-blown tri-
als in-which the prisoners would have the ben-
efit of an attorney. But it was not until last
week that a military insider revealed just what
a travesty of justice the tribunals actually are.

The disclosures of Army Reserve Lieutenant
Colonel Stephen E. Abraham are more reason
to close Guantanamo, move the prisoners to
mainland US prisons, and try those suspected of
war crimes in federal courts or courts martial.
Under pressure from Defence Secretary Robert
Gates, the administration is at least. moving
closer to shuttering the detention centre. Mean-
while, Republican presidential candidate Mitt
Romney is trying to burnish his anti-terror

The attorneys who have worked with Guan-

said the hearings were kangaroo courts. The
tribunals are important because they offered a
chance for prisoners to claim they were detained

US officials paid as much as $5,000 in bounties
for individuals taken into custody.

was often generalized and did not allege specific
acts. He also charged military commanders with
putting pressure on the officers serving on the
tribunals.

Despite the Defence Department’s effort to
answer Abraham’s criticism by stating that he
had “limited experience” with the tribunals and
that they were “fair, rigorous, and robust,”
Abraham had a sound basis for his observa-
tions. He was both a member of a tribunal and
served as a liaison between the office conduct-
ing the tribunals and intelligence agencies with
access to information about the prisoners.

In that capacity, he reviewed intelligence data
to see if there was any information favourable to
the prisoners. He said that when he asked the
intelligence agencies to state in writing that
there was no undisclosed evidence that would
benefit the prisoners, “the requests were sum-
marily denied.”

Before Romney repeats his “double Guan-
tanamo” suggestion, he might check with Gates,
who became defence secretary long after the
centre was established. Gates has said any trials
of suspects should take place elsewhere, because
“no matter how transparent, how open the tri-
als, if they took place in Guantanamo ... they
would lack credibility.” The combatant status
review tribunals lack transparency, openness,
and fairness.

Time for the

THE TRIBUNE



PLP to get
over defeat |

EDITOR, The Tribune

I HAVE resisted writing on
developments in the Bahamas
since the recent elections in the
hope that things would settle
down and both major political
parties would get on with the
jobs they were elected to do,
i.e. FNM to govern and PLP to
provide a viable opposition.

My fear is that within the PLP
resides such deep-seated disap-
pointment with the electorate

, and hunger for power that they

have decided to spend all of the
their energies causing disrup-
tion to our political processes. It
is my humble opinion that yet
again the PLP is making a huge
mistake. They will not be
rewarded by the Bahamian peo-
ple for supporting disobedient
behaviour as this will further
embolden the criminal element
that currently undermines our
society.

I and many who I come into
contact with would much prefer
a PLP that gets on with the job
of opposition party which they
have been called upon to do
and expend their efforts on
keeping the government on
track so that the best deals and
programmes are put in place to
correct the ills of our country
and to further enhance our
economy. No one is interested
in spending the next several
years embroiled in political
trickery and election courts.

Stop spoiling our environment

EDITOR, The Tribune

THIS letter is in reference to
two letters printed in the Tri-
bune.in June 16, 2007 signed
CY Noff and Ken Chaplin.

Thank you to these two per-
sons, they have expressed my
thoughts exactly. The first
refers to signs popping up all
over the island for advertis-
ing purposes. I was led to
believe this is against the law,



OTE MUES

letters@tribunemedia,. net




There is too much to be done in
our society to waste more time.
We had enough of that during
the Christie administration.

It is my belief that the PLP’s
time would be better spent
reflecting on its approach to
governance and to devise a plan
that discusses and agrees a man-
agement style should they be
given the privilege to govern
the Bahamas again. I fear that
this is a tall order for the “spe-
cial interest” group of the PLP
who are probably fearful that
details of their bloated contracts
are now subject to scrutiny by
the Ingraham government.
They also see “easy street” at
the expense of all of us coming
to a screeching halt.

I wish that Christie and Not-
tage would follow the lead of
Senator Gibson and accept that
the PLP is in opposition and
prepare themselves to serve in
that capacity. Fred Mitchell also
seems to have accepted this
reality. The Bahamian people
have spoken and the voice of
the people is the voice of God.
No matter the spin the PLP puts
on the recent elections, there
exists a sufficient number of
Bahamians who decided and
showed by their votes that they

if this is so please let it be
known on the radio, newspa-
per and TV (everyday) until
people get it, ignorance is not
bliss, it’s a mess. The public
needs to be informed, for
every illegal sign hung 20-50-
100 more seem to materialise,
when will it stop?

Next the letter from Mr
Chaplin, what will the Bahamas
look like in 10-20-30 years, a
concrete jungle with tall build-

would prefer Ingraham at the -

helm of the Bahamian govern-

ment at this time in our devel- ©

opment. Prime Minister Ingra-
ham should be allowed to gov-
ern in a peaceful manner and
to execute his responsibilities.
He too will be held accountable
for his actions at the appropri-
ate time.

I concur with Archbishop

Gomez’s admonition for the “

politicians to move on and

spare the country from politics *

as usual and, in my view, much
embarrassment. I also admon-

ish Prime Minister Ingraham “©
to carry out his duties with a -

keen eye on building institu-

tions, respect for individual ‘

rights and fundamental princi-
ples which have held our coun-
try together.
Meanwhile, I must emphasise
that the PLP should not attempt

to hold our country hostage by -

promoting and funding radical
behaviour. Bahamians are too
astute to fall for such trickery.
I truly hope someone within
the PLP listens to this cry of the
Bahamian people. We have



always been able and will con- \”

the market. We will continue |:

Antigua
demands
sanctions
against US

@ GENEVA

THE United States should
face commercial sanctions
worth more than US$3.4 billion
each year for its failure to com-
ply with a World Trade Orga-
nization ruling that its internet
gambling restrictions are ille-
gal, the Caribbean nation of
Antigua and Barbuda says,
according to Associated Press.

In its WTO compensation
request, Antigua is asking the
trade body for authorization to
target American trademarks
_ and copyrights if the US refuses

to change its legislation.

WTO officials said they had
received Antigua’s request but
were unable to provide details
on its contents... 5.-

Antigua: said the sanctions

would come into effect “short}"
ly,” ‘unless'the ‘United States.

requests a WTO arbitration
panel on the level'and scope of
the sanctions.

“While we realise this is a sig-
nificant step for Antigua and
Barbuda to take, we feel we
have no other choice in the mat-
ter,” Antigua’s Finance Minister
Errol Cort said in a statement.

Gretchen Hamel, spokes-
woman for the US Trade Rep-
resentative in Washington, said,
“We will continue to work with
Antigua and Barbuda to try to
find a mutually satisfactory res-
olution to this dispute.”.

Antigua argues that before
the ban was introduced, online
gambling provided income for
hundreds of its citizens and
helped end its reliance on
tourism, which was hurt by a
series of hurricanes in the late
1990s.

GUYANESE rice producers
are threatening legal action
against two Caribbean island
neighbors that buy subsidised
rice from other regions without
levying import taxes, an agri-
culture official has said, accord-
ing to Associated Press.

Montserrat, a_ British
Caribbean territory, and St Vin-
cent and the Grenadines regu-
larly buy rice from several Asian
nations and the United States
without levying mandatory
import taxes, according to Agri-
culture Minister Robert Persaud.

Persaud said Guyana, which
is the region’s largest rice pro-
ducer, instructed the South
American nation’s rice export
board to take their trade dispute
to the Trinidad-based Caribbean
Court of Justice, the highest judi-
cial body for much of the region.

Agriculture officials in
Montserrat and St Vincent did
not immediately return calls for
comment.

Rice is Guyana’s third largest
export earner after sugar and
gold.

@ By DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport Reporter

FREEPORT - Plans for the
34th annual Bahamas Inde-
pendence Celebrations on
Grand Bahama were officially
unveiled on Thursday at the

:* Prime Minister’s Office in

Freeport.

Senator Kay Smith, parlia-
mentary secretary in the prime
minister’s office, announced
that activities for this year’s
celebration, include an ecu-
menical church service, a cul-
tural show, a flag-raising cere-
mony and a fireworks display.

This year’s celebration will
be held under the theme,
“Tribute to our Forbearers”.
All events will take place at
the Independence Park on
Coral Road.

Mrs Smith said that there
will be only one celebration
on the island, and invited res-
idents from throughout Grand
Bahama to attend the activi-
ties and festivities in Freeport.

The ecumenical service will
be held on July 8 at the Com-
munity at Heart Church of God
of Prophecy on Coral Road.

On July 9, a cultural show
will be held at Independence
Park at 9pm, followed by fire-
works at midnight on July 10.

“I know it has been a very
difficulty time in Grand

Bahama for many residents,
but we have put together very
exciting event and we antici-
pate a great crowd in support
of 34th celebrations,” said Mrs
Smith.

Canard Bethel, undersecre-
tary at the prime minister’s
office, said entertainment will
be provided by Bahamian
artists out of New Providence,
such as KB, as well as local .
artists and the Royal Bahamas
Police Force Band.

He also said that there will
be a junkanoo rush-out and a
“spectacular” fireworks dis-
play, which are always a huge
hit with the crowd.

Mr Bethel said residents can
get t-shirts from any printing
company as a general design
has been distributed to all on
the island.

Island administrator Rufus
Johnson said activities are also
planned for west Grand
Bahama, including a church
service and small cultural
show.

However, he encouraged
persons in those areas to make
an effort to attend the cele-
brations in Freeport.

Gloria Bain, administrator
for East End, said that an ecu-
menical service and flag rais-
ing will be held on July 10, as
will the annual High Rock
School fair.

US Embassy issues warning over
fake letter from IRS in Caribbean

@ By RUPERT MISSICK Jr
Chief Reporter

THE US embassy yesterday
warned Americans living in the
Bahamas of a scam now spread-
ing throughout the Caribbean
involving a fake Internal Rev-
enue Service fax asking for tax-
payer information.

It noted that identity thieves
use stolen personal data to
access financial accounts, run
up charges on credit cards and
apply for loans.

The IRS is aware of sever-
al identity theft scams target-
ting taxpayers. In one case,
fraudsters sent bank cus-
tomers fictitious correspon-

dence and IRS forms in an’

attempt to trick them into



Pike orca

disclosing their financial data.

In another case, abusive tax
preparers used clients’ Social
Security numbers and other
information to file false tax
returns without the clients’
knowledge.

Sometimes fraudsters pose as
the IRS itself.

Last year, the IRS shut down
a scheme in which perpetrators
used e-mail to announce to tax-
payers that they were “under
audit” and could set matters
right by divulging sensitive
financial information on an offi-
cial-looking website.

It should be noted, the
embassy s said, that the IRS does

not usé €4 Sail’ Or fax'to contact’

related ‘to their, accounts.

In addition to the letter, the
fax also contains an altered copy
of a W-8BEN form which asks
for personal information,
including mother’s maiden
name and bank account PIN
numbers.

The embassy said that it is
not the practice of the IRS to
request this type of information
via fax.

The IRS warned that care
should always be taken when
disclosing personal information.

Bahamas have any doubt

is authentic, they should call 1-

MINISTER of Health and

ing class of the University of
the West Indies’ clinical pro-
gramme in the Bahamas to play
major roles in reshaping the
country’s healthcare delivery
system while helping to improve
the health of Bahamians.

Dr Minnis also urged the
graduates to use the “critical
thinking skills” they have devel-
oped to help find the answers to
some of the health challenges
that “plague our communities.”

Twenty-two of the 25 gradu-
ates are Bahamians, led by Dr
Kristine Parker, who earned the
distinction as the ‘most out-
standing student of the class of
2007’.

Dr Parker also won awards
for being the ‘most outstanding
student’ in final MBBS exami-
nations, surgery and public
health/family medicine.

@ MINISTER of Health and
Social Development Dr
Hubert Minnis congratulates
Dr Kristine Parker for being
named the most outstanding
student of the class of 2007





@ DR Hubert Minnis addresses the graduates

Dr Minnis said there are a
number of challenges facing the
healthcare system in the
Bahamas, the region and the
world.

He said the possibility of a
human pandemic, HIV/AIDS
and other sexually transmitted
diseases, as well as the re-emer-
gence of Tuberculosis “all con-
cern us in the region and the
Bahamas.”

“The alarming increase of
chronic non-communicable dis-
eases (CNCDs) in our popula-
tion is a primary concern.

“In 2003, illnesses such as
hypertension, diabetes, coro-
nary heart disease, stroke,
chronic respiratory diseases and

cancers, have contributed to
57.5 per cent of all deaths,
according to a 2005 CNCD
Prevalence and Risk Factor
Survey.

“My challenge to you then,
graduates, is what role will you
play in reshaping our health-
care delivery system and
improving the health status of
our people,” he said.

Dr Minnis urged the young
doctors to choose a career path
which improves general health,
the health delivery system and
the productivity level in the
Bahamas.

“I also remind you of the

“Things are different now, and
we see more men here in the
Bahamas enrolling in culinary
schools.”

“I would love to see our
(Bahamian) cuisine being men-
tioned on the same scale as
Japanese, Chinese, and Ger-
man, and we are slowly getting
there.” ;

Mr Dawkins, who closed his
business due to the slow
Freeport economy, now runs a
small snack shop at COB in
Freeport.

Students are often seen dash-
ing to the shop for his sought
after conch fritters and hot
baked pastries.

“Running a major bine in
Freeport is very costly and these
past few years have been
extremely difficult,” Mr
Dawkins said. ;

But he is not deterred and
says that he plans to re-open his
business someday.

Violent crime ‘may threaten tourism’

Warning by minister Neko Grant

THE rise of violent crime in
the region has the potential to
threaten the tourism product
of many countries, according
to Tourism. Minister Neko
Grant.

Mr Grant told participants
of the special committee on
sustainable tourism of the
Association of Caribbean
States in Trinidad on Thurs-
day, that regional partnerships
and strategies are needed to
reduce this growing threat.

“The establishment of a
regional tourism safety and secu-
rity network programme is fun-
damental to the sustainability
of tourism in the greater
Caribbean. No region, or desti-
nation within a region, can sus-
tain a vibrant tourism industry in
the face of rising crime,” he said.

“As a matter of fact,
research has shown that visi-
tors consider the safety of a
destination as a major priority
when selecting their vacation
destination. Visitor safety is as

Branville McCartney, Min-
ister of State in the Ministry of
Tourism and Aviation, made
these remarks in an address
to the 200 graduates of the
programme at their com-

’mencement ceremony at the
Church of God auditorium
Thursday night.

“The effectiveness of the
Bahamahost programme
depends on how well we are
able to deliver quality service

now, in a competitive envi-

out the Caribbean and the

the agreement, had ever for-
mally signed a commitment to
protect the interest of their nat-
ural, economic and socio-cul-
tural resources by establishing a
sustainable tourism zone.

“The member states recog-
nised the very important fact
that while tourism is the catalyst
fueling economic development
inclusive of job creation, for-
eign exchange earnings and
poverty alleviation, it is also the
industry with the greatest
potential to destroy the same
resources it relies on for’ eco-
nomic growth,” he said.

The minister also announced

that the Bahamas is ready to
begin the ratification of the con-
vention on sustainable tourism,
which aims to ensure that des-
tinations can attract visitors, but
at the same time, do so in a way
that would not harm the physi-
cal environment or the commu-
nities that surround them.

Mr Grant also emphasised that
the establishment of foreign lan-
guage centres and the delivery
of language training skills to
nationals of ACS member states
is critical in forging a better
understanding between these
diverse cultures as well as an
impetus to promote trade.

between Banco Atlantico (Bahamas) Bank & Trust Limited (Banco Atlantico) ‘and Banco
de Sabadell, S.A. on the one hand and EFG, acting for and on behalf of the Bank, on the
other hand, the Bank agreed to buy the majority of the Private Banking Business (as
defined in the agreement) of Banco Atlantico. The closing date of the agreement was 16-

Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
tera!) TR Seb PST AL

cab ote ATR UA Mink (GOtisatless dead

shéet are set out below’? '% °"4

» The principal -accountifig’ policies ‘applied: in the preparation of this consolidated balance

(a) ~ Basis of presentation

The Group’s consolidated balance sheet has been prepared in accordance with
International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS). The consolidated balance sheet
has been prepared under the historical cost convention. ‘

The preparation of the balance sheet in accordance with IFRS requires the use of

certain critical accounting estimates. It also requires management to exercise its

judgment in the process of applying the Group’s accounting policies. Actual results
’ could differ from those estimates.

With the exception of the new disclosure requirements of IFRS 7 Financial
Instruments: Disclosures, and amendments to IAS 1 Presentation of Financial
Statements regarding capital disclosures, that become effective 1 January 2007, the
application of new standards and interpretations issued but not yet effective will not
have a material impact on the Group’s consolidated balance sheet in the period of
initial application. On adoption, IFRS 7 will supercede IAS 30 and the disclosure
requirements of IAS 32.

(b) Consolidation

Subsidiaries are all entities over which the Group has the power to govern the
financial and operating policies, generally accompanying a shareholding of more
than one half of the voting rights. Subsidiaries are fully consolidated from the date
on which control is transferred to the Group; they are de-consolidated from the-date
on which control ceases.

This consolidated balance sheet includes the accounts of the Bank and its wholly
owned subsidiaries, namely, Eradani Ltd., Geminorum Ltd. and Fornacis Ltd., after
elimination of all significant intercompany balances, transactions~and gains. The
subsidiaries are nominee companies domiciled in The Bahamas. The Bank receives
all income and bears all expenses of these entities.

(c) Foreign currency translation

Items included in the balance sheet of each of the Group’s entities are measured
using the currency~of the primary economic environment in which the entity
operates (the functional currency). The consolidated balance sheet is presented in
United States dollars, which is the Bank’s functional and presentation currency.

Monetary assets and liabilities denominated in foreign currencies are translated into
the functional currency using the rate of exchange prevailing at the balance sheet
date. Foreign currency transactions are translated into the functional currency using
exchange rates prevailing at the dates of the transactions.

(d) Loans and advances to customers

Loans and advances to customers are classified as loans and receivables, which are
non-derivative finaneial assets with fixed or determinable payments, which are not
quoted on an active market. All outstanding loans and advances to customers were
originated by the Bank and were recognized when cash was advanced to borrowers.
Advances to customers are due on demand. These financial assets are carried at
amortized cost using the effective interest method and are assessed for impairment
at each balance sheet date. Cash and/or investment securities held by the Bank on
behalf of the borrowers adequately collateralise both loans and advances to
customers. Accordingly, the Bank has not established a provision for impairment of
loans and advances to customers

(e) Intangible assets

Intangible assets are stated at cost less accumulated amortization and accumulated
impairment losses. Intangible assets with a finite useful life are amortized to ‘ie
consolidated income statement on a straight-line basis over their estimated useful
lives which are reviewed on an annual basis. Amortization commences when the
intangible asset is available for use. The residual values of intangible assets are
assumed to be zero. The following are the main categories of intangible assets.

8c

THE TRIBUNE

Goodwill

Goodwill represents the excess of the cost of an acquisition over the fair value of
the Group’s share of the net identifiable assets of the acquired business entity at the
date of acquisition. Goodwill is tested annually for impairment and carried at cost
less accumulated impairment losses. Impairment losses previously recognized are
not reversed.

Gains and losses on the disposal of an entity include the carrying amount of
goodwill relating to the entity sold.

Customer relationship agreement

This intangible asset represents the purchase price of customer bases acquired
pursuant to a customer relationship agreement.

Non-competition agreement

This intangible asset represents the estimated cost incurred in respect of a non-
competition agreement entered into with a former senior banking officer of Banco
Atlantico.

These identifiable intangible assets are amortized on a straight-line basis over their
estimated useful lives‘ which are as follows: :

Customer relationship agreement 10 years
Non-competition agreement 15 years

(f) , Fiduciary activities

The Group acts as trustee and in other fiduciary capacities that result in the holding
or placing of assets ‘On behalf of individuals, companies and other institutions.
These assets and income arising thereon are excluded from this consolidated balance
sheet, as they are not assets and income of the Group.

(g) Property and equipment

Costs incurred related to property and equipment, including: leasehold
improvements; vehicles; communication and computer equipment; and furniture and
office equipment, have been capitalized and included in other assets. These assets
are stated at historical cost less accumulated depreciation and are being depreciated
on a Straight-line basis over their useful lives as follows:

' Leasehold improvements 10 years
Vehicles 5 years
Communication equipment 5 years
Computer equipment 3 years
Furniture and office equipment 5 years

(h) Leases

The leases entered into by the Group are primarily operating leases. The total
payments made under the operating leases are charged to general and administrative
expenses in the consolidated income statement on a straight-line basis over the
period of the lease.

When an operating lease is terminated before the lease period has expired, any
payment required to be made to the lessor by way of penalty is recognized as an
expense in the period in which termination takes place.

Contingencies and Commitments

(a) Credit commitments
Credit commitments include credit card guarantees and stand-by letters of credit
issued on behalf of customers. Exposure to loss is represented by the contractual
amount of those instruments; however, the Group uses credit and hypothecation
criteria when entering into these commitments and conditional obligations as it does
for loans.

As of 31 December 2006, credit card guarantees amounted to $1,133,000 and stand-
by letters of credit entered into on behalf of customers, in respect of which there are |
corresponding obligations by customers, amounted to $549,000.

9. Financial Risk Management

The Group’s activities expose it to a variety of financial risks and those activities involve
the analysis, evaluation, acceptance and management of some degree of risk or
combination of risks. Taking risk is core to the financial business, and the operational
risks are an inevitable consequence of being in business. The Group’s aim is therefore to
achieve an appropriate balance between risk and return and minimize potential adverse
effects on the Group’s financial performance.

(a) Fiduciary risk

The Group provides advisory, trustee and administration services to customers.
These activities give rise to fiduciary risk, which is the risk that the Group may fail
in carrying out certain mandates in accordance with the wishes of its customers. To
manage this exposure, the Group generally takes a conservative approach in its
fiduciary undertakings for customers.

(b) Liquidity risk

This is the risk that the Group may not have the necessary liquidity to meet its
contractual obligations. The Group manages its liquidity by attempting to match its
liabilities with assets of similar maturity periods. Assets and liabilities of the Group
may be classified, based on the period remaining from the reporting date to the
contractual maturity date, as follows:

As of 31 December 2006

Net liquidity gap —14,093 _ (8,862) __(3,135) ___ 6,585 8.681

(c) Currency risk

Currency risk emanates from the possibility that the value of a financial instrument
will fluctuate due to changes in foreign exchange rates. The Group minimizes its
risk by monitoring limit levels of foreign currency particularly those susceptible to
foreign exchange rate volatility. The table below summarizes the Group’s exposure
to currency risk:

Net exposure

— 85. 84 8,572 __(67)___ 8,681



(d) Credit risk

Credit risk arises from the failure of a counterparty to perform according to the
terms of the contract. From this perspective, the Group’s exposure to credit risk is
primarily concentrated in cash and money market papers, due from banks, loans and
advances to customers, guarantees and stand-by letters of credit issued. The
majority of deposits have been placed with the Parent. Deposits are also held with
high quality international institutions. The majority of loans and advances to
customers are short-term and all are fully secured by assets managed by the Group
on behalf of the borrowers. The Group also uses other methods, such as, credit
monitoring techniques including collateral and credit exposure limits policies. ‘The
element of risk associated with the related party balances is disclosed in Note 8.

The assets and liabilities of the Group are geographically located as follows:

SATURDAY, JUNE 30, 2007, PAGE 9

(e) Interest rate risk

Cash flow interest rate risk is the risk that the future cash flows of a financial
instrument will fluctuate because of changes in market interest rates. Fair value
interest rate risk is the risk that the value of a financial instrument will fluctuate
because of changes in market interest rates. The Group’s exposure to interest rate
risks is minimal as the relevant financial instruments are usually short-term in nature
and are therefore repriced on maturity.

The table below summarizes the Group’s exposure to interest rate risks. It includes

the Group’s financial instruments at carrying amounts, categorized by ‘the
contractual maturity dates.

(i) Concentration of business risk

As of 31 December 2006, the Bank managed approximately $254 million in assets,
of which ten (10) clients represent twenty-two percent (22%).

10. Acquisition

During the period the Bank acquired the Private Banking Business of Banco Atlantico as
defined in the Agreement referred to in Note 1. :

The acquisition has been accounted for using the purchase method of accounting. The
closing date for the purchase of the Private Book of Business was 16 February 2006. Part of
the purchase consideration was paid to Banco de Sabadell, S.A~on signing of the
Agreement. Another portion was paid during the period from 19 December 2005 (date of
incorporation) to 31 December 2006. The deferred cash consideration has been accrued and
is included in other liabilities at 31 December 2006. The net purchase price is reflected in
‘the consolidated balance sheet for the year ended 31 December 2006.

11. Fair Value of Financial Instruments

Financial instruments utilized by the Group include recorded’assets and liabilities, as well
as items that primarily involve off-balance sheet risk. The majority of the Group’s
financial instruments is short-term and bears interest rates that automatically reset to
market on a periodic basis. Accordingly, the estimated fair values are not significantly
different from the carrying value for each major category of the Group’s recorded financial
assets and liabilities.

12. Subsequent Events

On 26 March 2007, the Board of Directors resolved to change the name of the Bank from
EFG Bank & Trust (Bahamas) Limited to EFG Bank & Trust (Bahamas) Ltd with
immediate effect. Additionally, a resolution was passed on that same date to change the
address of the registered office of the Bank to Centre of Commerce, Second Floor, 1 Bay
Street, Nassau, The Bahamag. :

To the Shareholder of EFG Bank & Trust (Bahamas) Limited

“We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheet of EFG Bank & Trust (Bahamas).

Limited (the Bank) and its subsidiaries (together, the Group), as of 31 December 2006 and a
summary of significant accounting policies and other explanatory notes.

Management’s Responsibility for the Financial Statements

Management is responsible for the preparation and fair presentation of this consolidated balance ;
sheet in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards. This responsibility
includes: designing, implementing and maintaining internal control relevant to the preparation
and fair presentation of financial statements that are free from material misstatement, whether
due to fraud or error; selecting and applying appropriate accounting policies; and making
accounting estimates that are reasonable in the circumstances. .

Auditors’ Responsibility

Our responsibility is to express an opinion on this consolidated balance sheet based on our audit.
We conducted our audit in accordance with International Standards on Auditing. Those
standards require that we comply with ethical requirements and plan and perform the audit to
obtain reasonable assurance whether the balance sheet is free from material misstatement.

An audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the amounts and
disclosures in the financial statements. The procedures selected depend on the auditors’
judgment, including the assessment of the risks of material misstatement of the , financial
statements, whether due to fraud or error. In making those risk assessments, the auditors
consider internal control relevant to the entity’s preparation and fair presentation of the financial
statements in order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not
for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the entity’s internal control. An
audit also includes evaluating the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the
reasonableness of accounting estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall
presentation of the financial statements.

We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a
basis for our audit opinion.

Opinion

In our opinion, the accompanying consolidated balance sheet presents fairly, in all material
respects, the financial position of the Group as of 31 December 2006, in accordance with
International Financial Reporting Standards.

Emphasis of Matter

Without qualifying our opinion, we.emphasise that the accompanying consolidated balance
sheet does not comprise a complete set of financial statements in accordance with International
Financial Reporting Standards. Information on results of operations, cash flows and changes in
equity is necessary to obtain a complete understanding of the financial position, performance
and changes in financial position of the Group.

Alarm as dead bird
sightings continue

FROM page one

Erica Gates, operator of
Grand Bahama Nature Tours,
an eco-tour company that con-
ducts nature tours on Grand
Bahama, is particularly con-
cerned about the situation.

Mrs Gates said that she spot-
ted one dead Cory Shearwater
on the beach in Lucaya on
Wednesday.

She said although it is not
known whether the other dead
birds sightings were Cory Shear-
waters, persons have described
the birds as having hooked bills.

“So, it could have been one
Cory Shearwater, and it could
have all been Cory Shearwa-
ters. I don’t know, but they
seem to describe them as sea
birds with hooked bills,” she
said.

Mrs Gates, who is also an
expert bird watcher, said the
Cory Shearwater seabirds live
out to sea and only come to
land to nest.

“And so, if they are contami-
nated by something it would
have happened while feeding
out at sea.

“T have concerns because usu- .

ally these deaths occur through
ingestion of food — what the
birds eat. And in this case it
would be fish. And that would
be a concern for all of us.

“If these are all the same
birds, then all they eat is fish.
They don’t eat algae, only fish.
So we all should be concerned,”
said Mrs Gates.

According to reports, a BAS-
RA official on Grand Bahama
discovered four dead birds
while walking on William’s
Town Beach on Tuesday.

Public Analyst Mike Wallace

had issued a press release that

the department of Environ-
mental Health had received
reports of dead bird sightings
from residents in East Grand
Bahama.

It is believed that some of the
birds have been collected for

examination by the Department
of Agriculture.

According to the article on
the website www.abcaction-
news.com, The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission in Martin County, Flori-
da, has received reports of more
than 200 dead or sick greater
Shearwaters, a gull-like bird,
since Saturday along Florida's
east coast.

The birds have been found
from Hobe Sound in Martin
County to South Ponte Vedra
Beach in St. Johns County.

According to the article, local
wildlife rehabilitators report
numerous emaciated and dehy-
drated birds as well.

Florida Researchers are
examining the dead birds to
investigate the cause of the
deaths. Initial necropsy results
are not definitive; however, pre-
liminary findings suggest star-
vation during the migration
process played a role. Addi-
tional test results are pending.

Man killed outside home

According to Mr Gibson, the
driving factor behind the Urban
Renewal Project’s success was
the integration of police offi-
cers in the programme. “] don’t
see how (the programme) can
work properly without the teeth
of police support.” Mr Gibson
stated he was speaking to The
Tribune on behalf of the vic-
tim’s family and he was not

“taking advantage of the situa-
tion politically.”

Sources tell The Tribune that
workers at the Urban Renewal
Centre “are afraid to work there
after 4pm” and vacate the centre
as soon as possible because
there is no police presence. A
representative from the Urban
Renewal Project said that before
police support was removed,
centres were open until mid-
night, with some centres remain-

ing open around the clock.

In May of this year, newly
appointed Minister of National
Security, Tommy Turnquest,
stated that there would be
“adjustments” to the Urban
Renewal Programme, which
would include relocating police
officers out of the centres and
back to police stations.

Mr Turnquest could not be
reached for comment up to
press time.

Carl Bethel makes partnership offer
to school parents and students

FROM page one

“We can ameliorate the
unacceptable incidents of anti-
social encounters among our
student population and require
diligence and respect for
authority in all students,
respect for the teachers in the
classroom, and bring order and
stability both to the classroom
and the school yard and envi-
ronments around our schools,”
the minister said.

Earlier in his address, the
minister told delegates that their
struggle was his struggle, and
that he shared their vision, their
pains, and their goals. He
affirmed his and his ministry’s
commitment to fostering better
links between the two.

Minister Bethel told union
members that, his ministry, in
conjunction with school princi-
pals and contractors, have
already started school repairs,
and that present estimates have
repairs exceeding the $9 million
he announced last week.

The minister said, however,
his ministry is doing what it has
to do in order to stick to its plan
of improving the learning envi-
ronment.

“Realizing that the public
expectations of the educational
system are high, and costs
involved in facilitating the deliv-
ery of quality education are also
high, the government has com-
mitted itself to the delivery of
the resources,” said Minister
Bethel.

In relation, Minister Bethel

then turned to parents and stu-
dents saying: “We will now
require that parents and stu-
dents take a greater sense of
ownership and responsibility in
the upkeep of the school
premises.

“It has always been a mys-
tery to me that children in the
private school sector, whose
parents often have to pay hefty

school fees and other associated
expenses, they don’t break up
the school, write graffiti on it,
and deface property.

“But our children, whose
parents do not have to pay
tuition fees, who basically
receive education free of
charge, often show little respect
for the schools. This has to
change,” he said.

Before closing his address
to BUT members, Minister
Bethel did not leave without
telling his audience: “We all
have to take greater ownership
in that which has been given to
us by the grace of God at little
or no cost.”

Also addressing delegates at
yesterday’s conference, union
President Mrs. Ida Poitier-Turn-
quest also pledged union sup-
port in working with the Min-
istry of Education.

Turnquest said: “The union
hopes that the partnership that
we are forging will grow
stronger and stronger as we
work toward a real transforma-
tion of education in the
Bahamas.

She noted that only through
access to free quality education,
for all Bahamians, will the many
social ills in our society begin
to subside.

“We can build more prison
cells and hire more law
enforcement agents to ensure
that they are filled, but this will
do nothing to reduce the level
of fear felt by the community,”
said the union head. “All man-
ner of crime will continue to
rise.”

While education is not the
answer to every social ill, Mrs
Poitier-Turnquest said, “a well-
educated society is far less like-
ly to devour itself.”

You are the dealer, both sides vul-

nerable, and have opened One-Club:.

Partner responds One Diamond.
What would you bid now with each
of the following five hands?

1. @K93 ¥ AQ @ J865 & KI94

2.@AQ VAI Q43 & KQI862

3.45 ¥AQ93 @ KJ7 & AKQ73

1. One notrump. Though it is nor-
mal to raise partner whenever you
have four tumps — and it might
therefore be contended that the
proper rebid is two diamonds —
there are good reasons for preferring
one notrump.

First, the hand is well-suited for
notrump play, which is best
expressed by a rebid of one notrump.
A raise in diamonds would tend io
imply more in the way of distribu-
tional values, such as a singleton or a
couple of doubletons, which is not
the case here.

Also, the opponents’ silence makes
it more likely that partner has a good
hand and is headed for game. If this
hope materializes, a nine-trick
notrump game seems far more prom-

majors ;suggest that ,the- hand: will
play better from your side of the
table.

Bidding Quiz




2. Three notrump. You should be
unwilling to settle for less than three
notrump once partner responds with
a diamond. A jump to two notrump
or three clubs would run the risk of a
pass, since either of these bids would
merely invite, but not force, partner
to bid again.

3. Two hearts. The jump-shift in
hearts forces partner to bid again and
commits the partnership to game.
With this gigantic hand, you can
afford to insist on another response,
even though partner might have only
six points. Game, perhaps even a
slam, is highly probable in clubs, dia-
monds, hearts or notrump.

4. One spade. You have no choice
but to try to describe your distribu-
tion on an installment-plan basis,
bidding spades now and showing
diamond support later to identify the
three-suited nature of your hand. Of
course, you have a strong preference
for clubs as trumps over spades, but
you cannot afford to bypass the pos-
sibility that partner has four-card
spade support.

5. Four notrump. The number of ©

aces partner has is the key to how

many tricks you can make with dia- -

.five diamonds; if he shows one ace,
you bid six diamonds; if he shows
two aces, you bid seven diamonds.

2007 QC students
celebrate their
sraduation day

with awards

ON June 15, the students of
the Queen’s College class of
2007 celebrated the success-
ful completion of their high
school career.

The annual graduation, held
under the theme “No Mission
Is Impossible” was conducted
with the pomp and dignity
befitting this special occasion.

During this ceremony, stu-
dents were presented with
subject prizes for all of the
subjects pursued by grade 12
students as well as a number
of special awards. :

The AP Calculus Prize and
the AP Economics Prize.were
awarded to head boy Gilbert
Cassar; the AP French Prize
was awarded to Joshua
Thompson; AP History to
Bryann Hepburn; AP Lan-
guage and Composition to
Laurent King and Cecily
Dean; AP Psychology to Mar-
cus *Key and~Gabrielle
Misiewiez; AP Spanish to
Ezzard,Rolle; AS Literature
to Gabrielle Misiewicz.

These students and scores
of others successfully com-
pleted their BGCSEs in grade

eleven and were therefore

able to follow advanced cours-
es in grade twelve.

Some of the special awards
which were presented were:

the Beverly Brice Memorial
Award, which is presented to
a well-rounded female student
who demonstrates strong lead-
ership skills and serves as a
role model and inspiration to
others. This was presented to
Gabrielle Misiewicz.

Leadership

The School Pride Award,
which recognises a student
whose outstanding energy and
leadership have greatly
enhanced the school’s spirit,
was presented to Gregory
Maillis.

The Foundation Award,
which is presented to the stu-
dent who is committed to the
values of the school, is a role

- model for others, an ambas-

sador for the school, a com-
munity builder and one who
embodies the true ethos of

Queen’s College, was pre-.

sented to Ashley Powell.

The Principal’s Prize, which
is awarded to the student who
displays the most consistent
effort and excellence, was pre-
sented to Lindsay Parker.

Each year the top four stu-
dents are presented with very
special awards.

There was a three-way tie

@ GABRIELLE Misiewicz, Valedictorian, and Brittney Culmer, Salutatorian, receive their awards

for the Parkinson Prize for
Academic Excellence and the
students receiving these pres-
tigious awards were, Tenaj
Ferguson, Ezzard Rolle and
Gilbert Cassar.

The Salutatorian Prize, giv-
en for the second highest
achieving student and named
for Susan Eliza Young was
awarded to Brittney Culmer
and the Valedictorian Prize,
also named for Susan Eliza
Young, was awarded to
Gabrielle Misiewicz.

Dr Desiree Cox, the first
Bahamian Rhodes Scholar
and former Queen’s College
student was the keynote
speaker. During her address
she challenged the graduates
to think outside the box, to be
free a spirit, to trust their
instincts, to live in the
moment.

The majority of the gradu-

ates will be furthering their~

education at tertiary institu-
tions abroad.

This has been made possible
by the awarding of significant
scholarships from various
organisations and from the
various schools to which they
have been accepted. The value
of the total number of schol-
arships received was almost
$500,000.
