Minister makes
announcement

product

@ By BRENT DEAN
Tribune Staff Reporter

Mr Collie emphasized that
the ministry is asking mer-
chants to remove the items
from selves “immediately”,
and if this is not done, the gov-
ernment will use its authority
to seize and remove these
products.

A NATIONWIDE volun-
tary recall has been ordered
of counterfeit Colgate tooth-
paste allegedly manufactured
in South Africa that contains
an anti-freeze ingredient.

Minister of Lands and Local
Government Sidney Collie,
who has responsibility for con-
sumer affairs, made the
announcement yesterday after
a Tribune story reported that
the product was being sold in
New Providence.

market could have been

Mr Foster dismissed Mr

_ Prison sentence is upheld for

indecent assault during ‘sex therapy’

@ By NATARIO McKENZIE

THE Court of Appeal yes-
terday upheld a one year
prison sentence handed down
on a local “physician” for inde-
cently assaulting a. woman to
whom he had supposedly
administered sex therapy.

Dr Kevin King’s appeal
against a one year prison sen-
tence was dismissed by the
Court of Appeal yesterday.
That sentence which was over
a 2002 conviction for inde-

cently assaulting a female
patient was upheld in a judg-
ment handed down by Court
of Appeal President Dame
Joan Sawyer yesterday. It was
noted that his prison sentence
had been suspended pending
the prosecution of his direct
appeal to the Court of Appeal.
King was informed by Justice
Sawyer that he now has to
serve a year in jail.

Barbados PM: Bahamas could be integrated

into CARICOM programme rather than CSME

@ By KARIN HERIG

Tribune Staff Reporter :

INSTEAD of joining the Caribbean Single Market and Econ-
omy (CSME) the Bahamas could in future be integrated intoa
CARICOM programme that focuses more on issues such as ;

health care and education rather than on economic benefits.
CARICOM chairman, Barbados prime minister Owen Arthur,

speaking about the issue of CSME during this week’s heads of
government conference in Georgetown, expressed concern over }
the fact that some members of the Caribbean Community are not

participating in the region’s single market.

As a.solution to this concern, Mr Arthur said, he is recom-
mending “a programme of integration outside and beyond the”

mere economic sphere.”

_ the Bahamas’

| proximity to
US as tourism
advantage

THE proximity and afford-
ability of the Bahamas still
makes it.a likely tourist desti-
nation.for American visitors,
according to the Ministry of
Tourism.

This follows media reports
that the Bahamas has dropped
off a list of the top 15 countries
that Americans would choose
to vacation “if money were no
object.”

In a statement issued yester-
day, the ministry stated that
“The Bahamas’ comparative
advantage has been and
remains the country’s proximity
to the United States which
makes the islands of the
Bahamas highly accessible to
major US cities”.

This is an important factor as
this proximity makes it conve-
nient for Americans to visit the
country. The cities along the
eastern coast of the US makes
up 60-65 per cent of visitors to
the Bahamas.

These eastern cities such as

PMH announces programme to clean
up areas after publication of photos

@ By TANEKA THOMPSON

HOSPITAL officials claim
there is an “ongoing programme
for the rehabilitation of areas”
which are below standard at
Princess Margaret Hospital.

Yesterday, The Tribune was
the first to publish photos that
exposed the unsanitary and
dilapidated conditions at the
public ward of the government
funded Princess Margaret Hos-
pital (PMH).

Responding to this, hospital
officials said that it is a “very
high priority” to get conditions
at the hospital up to scratch.

During the 2007/2008 budget
debate, Minister of Health and
Social Development, Dr Hubert
Minnis stated that a total of
$170,546,945 was allocated to

claims that one of the photos
represent hospital conditions in
2005 that were corrected dur-
ing previous renovations within
the building.

She further claimed. that it is

assured the public that: “what

In response to claims of mal-

_ the administrative staff at the

hospital with any concerns.
“Anytime a member of the pub-

As a patient, especially one
in the private ward, Mrs Brown
said she should have been given
great care and attention follow-

ing the incident, which she said’ ©

should have been treated as an
emergency situation.

Mrs Brown claims that some
of the staff at the hospital
seemed much more interested
in trying to figure out exactly
what happened than taking care
of her and making sure that she
was not seriously hurt.

She said that the few doctors
and nurses who did help her
deserve special praise, but that
the others were “churlish” and
failed to come to her aid.

Mrs’ Brown claims that some
nurses even rolled their eyes when

They then asked fo see the
transcript of an oral complaint

dent, but the staff refused to

Mrs Brown also commented
on what she said were the dis-

which included fungus growing

Man faces
charge of
ammunition
possession

@ By DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport Reporter

FREEPORT - A male resi-
dent of Freeport was charged
with possession of ammunition
in Freeport Magistrate’s Court
on Wednesday.

Renaldo Jevan Rolle, 23, of
176 Northumberland Avenue
in North Bahamia, appeared
before Acting Deputy Chief
Magistrate Helen Jones.

It is alleged that on July 4, at
about 12.30am, the accused was
found in possession of six live
.38 bullets.

Simeon Brown represented
Rolle, who pleaded not guilty
to the charge of possession of
ammunition without lawful
authorisation. He was granted
$4,000 bail with one surety.

Magistrate Jones adjourned
the matter to March 4, 2008.

Coast Guard
still looking
for woman
missing at sea

THE US Coast Guard yes-
terday continued its search for a
42-year-old American woman
who fell of a yacht about 35
miles off of Grand Bahama.

According to authorities, the
woman — a native of Fort Laud-
erdale — went missing from the
49-foot sport fisher vessel Do
Diligence on Tuesday afternoon
when the vessel was sailing close
to the southern coast of
Freeport.

Passengers on the yacht
reportedly last saw the woman
at around 4.30pm on Tuesday.

Following the discovery, the
Do Diligence yacht contacted
a nearby boat which alerted the
Coast Guard at 6pm.

The yacht’s crew placed an
emergency beacon in the water
by the spot where the woman
might have fallen overboard.

A Coast Guard cutter and a
helicopter searched the area.

The woman was not wearing
a life jacket at the time she went
missing.

Coast Guard officials said
they will not release the name
of the woman until her family is
notified of the situation.

Administrators
attend seminar
on disaster
management

FAMILY island administra-
tors were among those who
attended a four-day seminar
aimed at strengthening the
Bahamas' disaster management
capabilities this week.

The 2007 National Disaster
Management Conference cov-
ered such topics as disaster pre-
paredness and response, shelter
operations, influenza pandem-
ic and Bahamas building codes.

It was partially funded the
United States government,
through the US Southern com-
mand.

Minister of Lands and Local
Government, Sidney Collie,
spoke at the event, representing
Prime Minister Hubert Ingra-
ham, who has ministerial tespon-
sibility for disaster management.

“Recent findings of the Inter-
governmental Panel on Climate
Change (IPCC) provide an
alarming picture for the future,”
said Mr Collie. “Temperatures
are increasing globally. If there
is indeed a link between climate
change and a rise in. weather-
related disasters, natural disas-
ters are not only here to stay,
but on the rise," he said.

Mr Collie emphasised that

FREEPORT - The Depart-
ment of Consumer Affairs in
Freeport is conducting inspec-
tions at supermarkets and con-
venience stores to ensure that
tainted toothpaste is not in cir-
culation in Grand Bahama.

Philip Stubbs, chief price
inspector in Freeport, said his
officers are out on the streets in
full force inspecting toothpaste
inventory at the major food-
stores and smaller convenience
stores throughout the island.

“We are trying as best we
can to inspect the stores, but
we will not be able to check
all of the stores in one day,”
said Mr Stubbs.

There have been concerns
that fake toothpaste is being
sold in stores in the Bahamas.
It is believed that poisonous
chemicals such as diethylene
glycol found in anti-freeze, or
harmful bacteria, are con-
tained in counterfeit colgate
toothpaste.

It has also been claimed that
a tube of toothpaste, which
bears some of the counterfeit
traits that have been identified
by Colgate-Palmolive, has sur-
faced in Nassau.

So far, none of the tainted
toothpaste has been discov-
ered on store shelves in Grand
Bahama.

Nevertheless, store owners
in Freeport are keeping a close
eye out for the fake tooth-
paste, which is believed to
have originated in China.

James Williams, manager of
the Winn Dixie Foodstore in
downtown Freeport, said Con-
sumer Affairs officials con-
tacted the store on Wednes-
day to inform them of the sit-
uation check their toothpaste
inventory.

‘We are checking our inven-
tory right now as we speak to
make sure.we do not have any
of the fake toothpaste.

“While we carry the Colgate
brand, we are pretty sure that
our toothpaste products are
safe because our suppliers are
not the same as the supplier
where the: fake versions were

distributed from,” said Mr
Williams.
Shawnya Ramsey of

Krosstown Convenience Store
said that the store has not yet
checked its inventory.

She said she heard some-
thing about the problem, but
was not sure of what to look
for when identifying the coun-
terfeit toothpaste. She was
then referred to relevant arti-
cles published in The Tribune,
which is sold at the conve
nience store.

“We carry Colgate, and after
reading the articles I am going
to check our store inventory

and stocks for the counterfeit ‘

product,’ she said.

Bird deaths ‘may be natural’

@ By TANEKA THOMPSON

NATURAL selection may

be behind mysterious bird .

deaths in Grand Bahama,
according to experts.

The Tribune reported yes-
terday that a number of mys-
terious bird deaths have
occurred off the southeastern
coast of that island in the past
few weeks.

According to David Lee, a
curator of birds at North Car-
olina State Museum of Natural
Sciences and a former biologist,
mass bird deaths are “actually a
rather well known biological
event”. And he has a few theo-

ries about the cause behind this

particular bout of bird deaths,
which is taking place off the
coast of Florida as well.

These include the theory
that adult birds may be aban-

doning their young too early,
leaving the offspring not fully
equipped for survival.

This theory purports when
there is an absence of winds
in the tropics, the inexperi-
enced young shearwater gulls
cannot fly, and because of
the “low productivity of the
oxygen starved tropical
waters” they are unable to
find food.

“By the time they make it.
into the northern hemisphere
they are starved and exhaust; ,.
ed. In these years we see high

mortality,” Mr Lee said.

He does not believe the
deaths are “disease or chemi-
cal related”, but simply attrib-
uted to nature’s principal of
“survival of the fittest”.

Director of the Ministry of
Agriculture and Fisheries, Sime-
on Pinder, told The Tribune on

Wednesday that he has “no
idea” what happened to the
great shearwaters, but revealed
that initial suspicions of bird flu
have been eliminated.

“It may take quite some
time for the best laboratories
to determine the actual cause
[of the deaths],” he added.
Until the final reports are
released from the lab in the
US, Pinder speculated that
possible toxins may be one
reason for the bird deaths.

Eric Carey, executive direc-
tor of the Bahamas National
Trust; told The Tribune on
yesterday that his organisation
is investigating the unex-
plained bird deaths, but added
that the situation is not uncom-
mon.

“We have reports that it
[mass bird deaths] occurs every
few years.” Mr Carey stated.

The labelling information

PLP not levelling with the public

IN A PRESS statement yesterday Tourism
Minister Neko Grant denied former transport
minister Glenys Hanna-Martin’s claim that
he was seeking “cheap political gain” for
telling the Bahamian people that the PLP gov-
ernment had known three years ago that cruise
ships would pull out of the Bahamas if Prince
George dock were not lengthened and the
harbour dredged.

Mr Grant replied that his ministry takes
“very seriously” its responsibility to the
“Bahamian public to provide information that
is truthful, complete and necessary to help
establish broad public understanding of issues
of critical national importance.”

This was something that Mrs. Martin’s gov-
ernment did not do when in 2004 it received its
first letter from Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines,
followed by a second letter in 2005, informing
it that the dredging of Nassau harbour was
“imperative” if its service was to continue to
the Bahamas. Caribbean Cruise Line told gov-
ernment that the harbour’s turning basis was
too small for its larger “Freedom Fleet” ves-
sels, which were to enter service this year.
This was the reason given for pulling four
ships from the Bahamas and transferring them
to Europe, South America and Alaska.

Mr Grant in the House, followed by Mr
Dion Foulkes in the Senate, pointed out that
not only did the PLP government not tell the
Bahamian people the difficulty the harbour
was presenting for the country’s continued
cruise business, but it did nothing to avert the
danger.

Mr Foulkes said his information was that
even if the harbour were dredged now, there
was no hope of Caribbean Cruise liners return-
ing before 2009 because all cruises were

- booked until then.

Mr Foulkes also revealed that the Cunard
company offered to dredge the harbour at its
own expense to accommodate the Queen
Mary 2, the largest passenger liner built.
Bahamians were never told of this offer, nor is
it yet known why it was not gratefully accept-
ed by the PLP government. As a consequence
the Queen Mary 2 cannot include the
Bahamas in its itinerary.

On June 25, flanked by former ministerial
colleagues and former prime minister Perry
Christie, who during his election campaign
had assured Bahamians that their tourism
industry was holding strong, Mrs Martin held
a press conference in the opposition commit-
tee room of the House of Assembly. She chas-
tised Mr Grant for either not knowing the
facts or deliberately misleading the public “for
cheap political gain.” Either way, she said, his

“assertions were false...and irresponsible.”

She regretted that Royal Caribbean had
been drawn into a “domestic political row”
by the minister whom she accused of “using it
to create political mischief, or to generate mis-
conceptions and innuendoes, or to perpetuate
dishonesty for partisan political reasons.”

After all that vitriolic hot air we thought
that if in fact Minister Grant were lying, this
was her opportunity to tell the public the truth.
Not a bit of it. All the public learned was that
the “former government” — the FNM — had
been planning and preparing for such a dredg-
ing for more than two years. If this were so,
the PLP’s inaction was even more unforgivable
— five whole years of doing nothing. Why
didn’t the PLP government execute the FNM
plans, especially as they had been warned in
writing by a major cruise company what would
happen if they didn’t?

Then there is the case of the TG Glover
school. When Public Works Minister Earl

_ Deveaux announced that construction at the

school had stopped until his government could
investigate claims that the site was contami-
nated, former works minister Bradley Roberts
lashed out. He accused the FNM government
of trying to “demonise the Christie adminis-

tration”, claiming that there was “not a shred

of evidence to support” the FNM’s “outra-
geous allegations.”

He said that the rash that workers com-
plained of was a case of “monkey tamarind”,
it had been cleared up and government should
either produce evidence that the site was con-
taminated or allow the work to continue.

It this were true, and there was nothing to
fear on the site, why would the contractor,
write to the new government a day after it
was sworn in to complain that for the previous
four months his workers had been ill. It asked
the new government to fully inspect the site
and inform his firm of its findings. Obviously
ER Hanna Construction Company was not
satisfied with Mr Roberts’ “monkey tamarind”
story.

As Mr Deveaux pointed out it would have
been irresponsible for his government to have
ignored the request, because if the site were in
fact contaminated it threatened the health of
too many Bahamian children. And so the site
was closed to await a toxicology report.

These two incidents alone are enough to
demonstrate that the Christie government was
not capable of leading this country. As one
economist remarked recently: If the Bahami-
an economy had not been so robust,
the Christie government would have wrecked
it.










Responding
to story on
catch limits

EDITOR, The Tribune.
PLEASE allow me to
respond to an article that
appeared in one of the news-
papers a couple of weeks
ago. The article stated that
“Prime Minister Hubert
Ingraham has promised to
review recently implemented
catch limits which he said are
too stringent”. It is my sin-
cere hope that the reporter
misquoted the Prime Minis-
ter. How, after two weeks in
office, would the Prime Min-
ister be able to come to this
conclusion? It is my under-
standing that scientists, Gov-
ernment technical officers
and environmental NGOs in
The Bahamas and globally

support more stringent catch

limits, such as are currently
in effect, to reduce the
tremendous threats to fish-
ery stocks in The Bahamas.

The Bahamas is the only
country in the region that
still has viable stocks of
conch, crawfish and several
other important species.
Stocks in other countries of
the region and indeed glob-
ally have crashed due to the
pressures put on them by
overfishing and pollution.
Are we going to follow the
crowd like lemmings or actu-
ally be proactive in our
approach to management of
our fishery stocks with pro-
gressive catch limits. In a
country where poaching and
pollution already threaten
species important to the eco-
nomic well-being of many
Bahamian families as well as
their health, stringent is
good.

As for the statements of
Mr Loran Pyfrom, is he a
fishery scientist? Persons go
around making these gener-
al statements with no
research, facts or authority
to back them up. There was
a problem with the old rules,
they were too liberal. Allow-
ing foreign yachters to come
in and take the large quanti-
ties that they could under
the previous rules is UNAC-
CEPTABLE.

If there is a problem with
enforcement, then let's
address the problem and
give the Department of
Marine Resources and the

Royal Bahamas Defence

Force the manpower and
tools to enforce the law. It is
pointless, absolutely point-

“less, to enact laws and regu-

that special PROM DRESS?

lations if we are not going
to put in place the mecha-
nisms for them to .be
enforced.

Let’s just do the math. Ifa
sportfishing vessel comes to
The Bahamas with four men
on board, under the old rules
they could each catch six

crawfish, 20 pounds of '

groupers, snappers and the
like and six dolphin, tuna
and the like as well as conch.
For that one boat, that trans-
lates into 24 crawfish, 80
pounds of grouper and snap-
per, 24 dolphin and tuna as
well as conch. Let's just esti-
mate that we have 500 ves-
sels in The Bahamas every
year. If you multiply those
figures by 500, we lose
12,000 crawfish, 40,000
pounds of grouper and snap-
per, 12,000 dolphin and tuna
and only God knows how
much conch on an annual
basis.

Now one may argue there
is no way they take that
much, but the fact is with the
old rules, they can take that
much because the law allows
them to. With the new rules
the number is reduced to
3,000 crawfish, 10,000
pounds of grouper and snap-
per, 3,000 dolphin and tuna

and no conch. When you:

look at the figures, which
would Bahamians be more
comfortable with? We know
what the foreign sportfish-
ermen are comfortable with.

Mr Pyfrom and his col-
leagues are to be lauded for
raising monies to assist BAS-
RA, but he and many
Bahamians need to stop
being short-sighted. If there
are no fish to catch in 15 to
20 years, there will be NO
sportfishing tournaments
because these “frustrated”
foreign sportfishermen will
take their boats and their
huge disposable incomes
elsewhere.

When are we going to stop
putting our personal bene-
fits before the benefits of
this nation? Too many of us
are selfish in the way we
operate, unwilling to sacri-
fice for the common good.
We fail to recognise that
when we gain in the short

term for selfish reasons, it
comes back to haunt us and
we all suffer in the years to
come. .

When are we going to stop
bending the rules because a
white foreigner complains?
They complained about the
yachting fees. They are still
coming. They will complain

about the catch limits, but

they will still come. Why?
Because there is nowhere
else to go. Everywhere else
in this region remotely close
to where they live has poor
or collapsed fishery stocks.
When are we going to
realise that what we have is
priceless? We can develop
this country in the best inter-
est of Bahamian people and
Bahamian natural resources
because the unique qualities

’ and healthy systems that

exist here are unparalleled
anywhere else. But we have.
to keep it that way. We have
to protect them. We cannot
expect foreigners to look out
for our best interest. We
have to look out for our own
and stop cowtowing to every
complaint.

And while I may under-
stand the Prime Minister’s
zeal to correct any wrongs
that may have been done by
the previous administration,
that shouldn't mean doing
away with everything they
put in place, especially deci-
sions that are good for this
country — like more strin-
gent catch limits:

So I sincerely hope that
the Prime Minister, Mr
Pyfrom, Mr Cartwright and
all those thinking the limits
should be changed to
research the effort that went
behind establishing those
regulations, to understand
the tremendous long-term
benefits such limits will have
for Bahamian fishery stocks
and to make a wise decision
in consultation with appro-
priate experts.

The Bahamian people are
watching and listening and
we will not tolerate a deci-
sion that jeopardises our
well-being and that of our
children to assuage “frus- |
trated” sportfishermen who
represent a miniscule per-
centage of the interest in this
matter.

Silence on housing probe

@ By ALISON LOWE
Tribune Staff Reporter

A WALL of silence has
descended over the investiga-
tion into allegations of corrup-
tion at the Ministry of Housing
which began in November last
year.

Yesterday, Assistant Com-
missioner Ellison Greenslade
uncharacteristically refused to
comment on the investigation's
status, or elaborate on why that
might be.

Where usually Mr
Greenslade has either com-
mented, stated that investiga-
tions are too sensitive to remark
upon, or admitted that he is not

. fully aware of the details of a

situation and referred The Tri-
bune to other police officers
who may be more up to speed,
yesterday Mr Greenslade sim-
ply said "no comment."

"T can't comment on it, I'm
very sorry, I can't say anything

_ on that at the moment," he said.
When asked to explain why:

that is the case, considering his
usual method of handling
inquiries, Mr Greenslade con-
tinued: "No no, I just have no
comment at the moment. "

Pushed on whether this was
because there were no new
developments, he added: "No,
with the greatest respect I just
have no comment. I don't know
what else to say, I just have no
comment."

This follows statements made
at a conference in April, short-
ly after Mr Greenslade took on
the crime portfolio, in which he
said that he hoped to "respond
very soon" to queries as to the
outcome of the Ministry of
Housing investigation.

"IT will be looking at that file
today and certainly will be dis-
cussing it with detectives at the
top end," he said at that time.

Yesterday, Commissioner of
Police Paul Farquharson also
declined to speak with The Tri-
bune about the matter, refer-

New minister pledges to pursue matter



bune of corruption amongst
ministry staff — in the form of
bribes and extortion, and ille-
gality in the contract distribu-
tion process — has said that he
was disappointed in the appar-
ent lack of action by police as a
consequence of the then six
month old investigation.

He said in April: “To see
what the law in our country has

to be properly dealt with.

Yesterday, the new minister
of housing Kenneth Russell —
who has fired some ministry
employees for being “unquali-
fied” since taking office — said he
has not yet received the police
report on the now eight-month-
old investigation, and has had
no communications with the
police about the matter.

"Now you've reminded me,
I'll find out," said Mr Russell.

The police investigation
began after The Tribune print-

by contractors of bribery, extor-

tors, homeowners and the pub-
lic purse — at the hands of hous-

come down to — I disapprove,
it's distasteful, it's just not fair.
And, yes, I am a bit disappoint-
ed in that area.”

He suggested that police offi-
cers may have had "good inten-
tions" in carrying out the inves-
tigation, but ultimately were
scuppered in taking the investi-
gation to its conclusion under
the weight of political influence.
Consequently, he said he felt
that a change of government

Scholarship at
COB funded
by institute of
accountants

Bright and highly motivated
accounting majors in the Col-
lege of the Bahamas School
of Business can look forward
to financial assistance over the
next five years, courtesy of an
annual $10,000 scholarship
award donated by the
Bahamas Institute of Char-
tered Accountants (BICA).

The award will fund two
outstanding students in their
third or fourth year of study
and is named “The BICA
Scholarship of Excellence”.

The first recipient is D’An-
dra Letitia Greenslade who is
about to enter her third year.
A graduate of Bahamas Acad-
emy, Miss Greenslade holds
eight BGCSE passes and has
been on the President’s List,
an honours list which requires
a GPA of above 3.5, since she
enrolled at the college.

Kendrick Christie, presi-
dent of BICA, expressed the
institute’s pleasure in donat-

ing the scholarship and his
desire to assist the college in
its endeavours to contribute
to the world of accounting in
the Bahamas.

Mary Russell, assistant
director of financial aid at the
college, said how happy she
was that the institute had
decided to make this gener-
ous donation.

Chair of the School of Busi-
ness at the college, Remelda
Moxey, said how gratifying it
was to see college alumni so
tangibly involved in giving
back to their alma mater.

Lawrence Lewis, a council
member of BICA; Theofanis
Cochinamogulos, the secre-
tary of BICA and Kendrick
Christie, president of the
BICA, all studied at the col-
lege on their way to accoun-
tancy qualifications.

Earlier this year BICA also
donated a $500 book award
to a student in accounting.

Taiwan’s VP
launches
tour of Latin

@ DOMINICAN REPUBLIC
Santo Domingo

TAIWAN’S vice president
kicked off a Latin American
tour Wednesday in the Domini-
can Republic, an ally rapidly
increasing its economic and
political ties with the island’s
diplomatic rival, China, accord-
ing to Associated Press.

Vice President Annette Lu’s
three-country trip aims to
counter a Chinese push that

’ bore fruit last month in Costa

Rica, where the government
announced it was switching its
diplomatic recognition to Bei-
jing in hopes of attracting more
trade with China.

Taiwan and communist China
split amid civil war in 1949. Chi-
na refuses to havé diplomatic
ties with nations that recognise
Taiwan, which Beijing regards
as a renegade province it plans
to eventually unify with the
mainland.

Costa Rica’s defection left
Taiwan with only 24 diplomatic
partners — many of them poor
countries in Latin America and
the Caribbean.

China has also been courting
Latin American leaders in a bid
to win their support and weak-
en Taiwan’s claims of interna-
tional legitimacy.

The Dominican Republic has
been playing both sides of the
political divide, developing
extensive ties with Taiwan and

Cable Bahamas apologises

over fault in e-mail service

CABLE Bahamas
announced yesterday that its
e-mail systems are undergoing
maintenance to correct a fault
that has impacted e-mail ser-
vice delivery to subscribers in
the past few weeks.

This work is taking place at
the same time as a $1.5 million
upgrade to its core Internet
network, which is expected to
be completed in the fall, and
the Internet speed increase
operation completed two
weeks ago.

The company said these pro-
jects are part of an ongoing
effort to enhance the experi-
ence of its CoralWave sub-
scriber base.

“We would like to apologise
for the level of service being
experienced with the Coral-
Wave mail servers over the.
past few weeks and want to
assure our loyal CoralWave
subscribers we are doing
everything possible to bring
this to a final resolution,” said

André Foster, vice~ aero ee i

of Internet ‘technologyat
Cable’ Bahamas. “Cable

Mahogany.

Bahamas is proud of its net-
work and the level of service
we provide to our subscribers
but there is no question that
this is not the quality of ser-
vice our subscribers have come
to trust and we are making
every effort to rectify it in
short order.”

“With the rapid growth of
our CoralWave Internet sub-
scriber base, our mail systems
have been significantly impact-
ed,” said Ayodele Williams,
manager of applications and
development.

Servers

“The most recent fault which
impacted the e-mail retrieval
service known as POP3, has
resulted in its intermittent
availability on the mail system
and has had notable perfor-

mance faults on one of our °

mail servers.
“We have been working
very closely with the key soft-

, Wate vendors to diagnose and .

-) determine SPR ORs os changés

Py
pat Udi 45

to improve overall perfor-
mance and service availabili-
ty.”

In an effort to further sta-
bilise the service, Cable
Bahamas will be performing
maintenance on the mail sys-
tem starting at 2am from July 3
through July 8. The nightly
maintenance involves contin-
ued software upgrades as well
as migrating user mailboxes.

“During these software
upgrades, subscribers will
unfortunately have issues
retrieving mail from our e-mail
servers from time to time,”
said Mr Foster, “but we are
working to keep interruptions
to the bare minimum.”

AN international organisa-
tion is doing research in the
Caribbean which may bring
descendents of slaves closer to
being compensated for the trau-
ma and indignity their ances-
tors suffered, according to the
BBC.

The Global Afrikan Congress
—a charity which represents the
interests of people from the
African diaspora — is seeking to
establish which British compa-
nies were operating in the
region during the slave trade,
and therefore benefited from it,
and what became of them fol-
lowing its abolition 200 years
ago.

After the abolition, many
companies received financial
compensation for their loss of
earnings from the British gov-
ernment, while slaves and their

descendents have so far
received nothing.
The GAC hopes their

detailed investigations will ulti-
mately expose which companies

profited from the trade and help

the organisation in putting a

case to the British government
that reparations should be paid
to the descendants of slaves still
alive today.

The GAC intends to discuss
the issue with Caribbean gov-
ernment leaders and other
international NGOs before tak-
ing the case for reparations to
the new British Prime Minister,
Gordon Brown, said the BBC.

Cikia Thompson, chair of the
organisation said: "The fami-
lies, companies and govern-
ments which were involved in
the slave trade should be held
responsible.

"All African people through-
out the world including those
in the Americas whose ances-
tors were victims of this crime
against humanity should be paid
compensation."

Robert Beckford, a reader in
theology at Oxford Brookes
University in the UK, told BBC
Caribbean he welcomed the
move.

"People have become a lot
more aware of how much the

The roots of out glorious |
parliamentary democracy

HOSE who
had the time

to watch on television
last week the transi-
tion of power from
one prime minister to
another in Britain
would have been
greatly rewarded by
the experience.

It was instructive to
watch this seamless
process in one of the
world’s great democ-
racies and the former
imperial power from
which we inherited
our system of parlia-
mentary democracy.

Among those coun-
tries in the world that
can be described as
democracies, about 60
have chosen to be par-
liamentary democra-
cies with Iceland being
the oldest and India
the biggest. Some are
unicameral.

Nearly all of the for-
mer colonial territo-
ries in the Caribbean
chose to be parlia-
mentary democracies,
including Trinidad
and Tobago and
Dominica which are
republics. Guyana is
the exception.

There is obviously a
consensus among them
that this system is to
be preferred over the
presidential republic in which
great power is vested in a direct-
ly-elected head of government
who is also head of state.

he United States is per-

haps the best example
of a successful presidential
republic, but in Latin America,
Africa and Asia the presiden-
tial republic has too often been
synonymous with dictatorship.

A few democracies have a
hybrid system in which there
are elements of both the presi-
dential and parliamentary mod-
els.

France adopted such a hybrid
system after a proliferation of

political parties and consequent.

instability brought about the
collapse of the post-war Fourth
Republic. Charles de Gaulle
wrote the constitution for the
Fifth Republic and became its
first president.

The British system, common-
ly referred to as Westminster
because of the palace in which
both houses of parliament meet,
evolved out of many centuries
of sometime violent struggle
between the monarchy, the
nobility and the commoners.

The British are still trying to
come to terms with the vestiges
of hereditary political office as
represented in the House of
Lords. The genius of the sys-
tem lies in its flexibility and
powerful conventions together
with the marriage of two oppos-

ing political ideas, hereditary

and elected office.

The hereditary monarch no
longer has power in Britain but
is still the symbol of national sta-
bility and unity in what is a very
healthy modern democracy.

The monarch’s discretion in
appointing prime ministers has
all but disappeared as the major
political parties have now devel-
oped rules for the selection of
their leaders.

The monarch is still supposed
“to advise, to warn, to guide”
prime ministers but, as com-
mentators pointed out last
week, it is not likely that a very
young Queen Elizabeth II had
any words of advice for the old
war horse she met in office.

More likely Sir Winston
Churchill lectured her on what
was expected of a British
monarch. Counting from Sir
Winston, Gordon Brown last
week became the eleventh

pu R



that they had an arrangement
between them that one would
succeed the other as prime min-
ister of Britain.

Both were powerful figures
in the Labour Party and Mr
Brown served throughout as Mr
Blair’s Chancellor of the Exche-

quer. Some say only half jok-~

ing that Mr Brown never
showed the Prime Minster his



The new
administration
has a lot on its

plate but it is

important to
start planning
now to provide
a suitable
home for our
parliamentary
institutions.



budget in advance of presenta-
tion to parliament.

Mr Blair gets the credit for build-
ing on the work of Neil Kinnock
and making the Labour Party elec-
table again. He led his party to an
unprecedented three straight vic-
tories at the polls.

His popularity waned
considerably in the last
few years because of the
Iraq war but his Conser-
vative opponents were
unable to exploit this
because they supported
Britain’s participation in
the invasion of Iraq.

as if Mr Blair was reluc-
tant to honour his deal
with his friend and rival
Gordon Brown but no
doubt pressure from
within the party because
of the Iraq war finally
led him to step down.

W hat is inter-
esting is that

this is not the way prime
ministers as a rule make
their exits. Some go
- when their party is
defeated in an election
and others go when they
are chased out of office
by their colleagues, as
was Margaret Thatcher.

In any event, the days

of mounting insurrec-
tions and shedding
blood in order to
achieve political office
seem long gone in
Britain. Mr Blair left 10
Downing Street, and
went to Buckingham
Palace to inform the
‘Queen he was stepping
down.

An hour later he was
followed by Mr Brown who
went to the palace to get his
mandate from the Queen to
form a new government. Then
he went back to Number 10 as
Britain’s new prime minister.
The whole thing was smooth as
silk and elegant as a ballet.

This is the glorious tradition
of parliamentary democracy
that we share with Britain and
most of the world’s democra-
cies. Unlike Britain, we have a
codified constitution but we still
have many of the conventions
that are so important to the suc-
cessful operation of the system.

‘[ great challenge for
Bahamians is that we
continue to honour these con-
ventions. It was not at all certain
in 1972 that we could exercise
the restraint and good judgment
that was necessary in the office
of a political attorney general
with ultimate power over pros-
ecutions.

The alternative was a consti-
tutional director of prosecu-
tions. It was Loftus Roker who
convincingly made the argu-
ment that Bahamians had
assimilated the conventions and
that a Bahamian attorney gen-
eral could be trusted just as well
as a British one not to abuse
this power.

We are not out of the woods
yet, as was demonstrated by the
former administration when so
many conventions were disre-
garded, and also by post-elec-

A WAR otf words has erupt-
ed between Minister of Tourism
Neko Grant and former Minis-
ter of Transport and Aviation

. Glenys Hanna-Martin over the

issue of Royal Caribbean Cruise

_ Line's decision not to include

Nassau on its list of destinations
for its new fleet.

~- Last month;Mrs Hanna-Mar-
tin accused Mr Grant of "seek-
ing to obtain cheap political
gain at national expense" for
comments in which he stated
that the PLP government had
known since 2004 that the cruise

line would not be able to dock ’

any of the ships of its "Freedom
Fleet" in Nassau harbour, due
to size restrictions. "No changes
were made, and ‘Royal
Caribbean had no choice but to
plan alternate destinations for
their vessels," said Mr Grant at
the time.

Mrs Hanna-Martin conse-
quently accused Mr Grant of
unfortunately having "drawn
Royal Caribbean into a domes-
tic political row," and of using
the cruise line, which has a long
history in the Bahamas, "to cre-

However, Mr Grant in a press

labelling her "reckless and irre-

ously our responsibility to the
Bahamian public to provide
information that is truthful,
complete and necessary to help
establish broad public under-
standing of issues of critical
national importance.
“Tourism is our country’s
number one industry. It impacts
every sector of our economy
and the information disclosed

’ by my ministry are irrefutable

facts, which we stand by
unequivocally," he said.

He added that his ministry's
position “is that if something
has the potential or is expected
to impact our country’s most

‘important industry to any sig-

nificant degree, then the
Bahamian people have a right
to be apprised, and to be, fur-
ther guided as to what their: duly
elected government intends to
do about it,” he statéd.

The minister claimed that the
facts speak for themselves in

the matter, and accused Mrs-

Hanna-Martin of simply trying
to "save face" over the issue.

"The fact of the matter is,
that more than two years ago
the former government was
made well aware, that unless
the then reconimended changes
were made to Nassau’s harbour
we would suffer very specific
losses. We are now today faced
with those losses and the chal-
lenge of how do we recoup
nearly six per cent of our cruise
arrivals, which corresponds to
more than $9 million of the
business annually.

“I simply cannot imagine how
anyone would suggest that
those losses are somehow par-
tisan losses, when clearly the
entire Bahamas and our nation-
al economy is affected,” Mr
Grant said.

the large number of visitors
from these areas who often plan
annual trips to the islands.

For Americans to visit other
countries on the list, such as
Europe, Asia, and Australia,
they need to allocate a consid-
erably longer period of time just
for travel purposes alone. Con-
sequently, persons will spend a
longer period of time in the
country if they visit the Bahamas
rather than international desti-
nations further away.

Convenience is also linked to
ihe affordability of visiting the
Bahamas versus the other inter-
national destinations. The
amount spent on airfare tends to
be one of the more expensive
costs when planning a vacation.
The Ministry has said the often
discounted airlift to the
Bahamas combined with the
accessibility of the islands has
allowed the country to capitalize
their advantages.

One tourism official explained
that “the four-day holiday 1s dis-
tinct from the extended trip
across the world.” Not only
does travelling time create an
obstacle for these trips, but the
cost alone prohibits the average
American from making -these

trips to countries in Europe or

to Australia.

Therefore the public ts
reminded to take into consider-
ation that the Harris survey,
which takes costs out of the
equation when surveying per-
sons, gets results of places per-

sons may not choose in reality.
The Ministry believes that this
may contribute to the reason
the Bahamas was not in the top
15 of the survey.

The Ministry suggests that if
“you compare the islands of the
Bahamas with those high ranked
destinations in the Harris sur-
vey, on the basis of which desti-
nations persons are more likely
to travel to more than once ina
given year, the islands of the
Bahamas would likely out rank
most if not all of them given our
location and other natural
assets.”

It is also suggested that
“Egypt and China, the two
countries replacing the Bahamas
and Jamaica in the top 16, are
certainly emerging markets that
have piqued the interests of
travellers worldwide. They con-
stitute what one might consider
part of the emerging less tradi-
tional element of the global trav-
él market, and are increasingly
considered more exotic, than a
Caribbean which arguably has
grown more familiar.” This
familiarity can be proven if one
notices the increasing interest
in the Bahamas as a second
home.

The Ministry states “that if
such factors are taken into con-
sideration and the element of
what it costs to get to destina-
tions like those is removed, the
attractiveness of these same des-
tinations then is raised substan-
tially.



322-3937



“But all of that notwithstand-
ing, it is certainly our practice
to monitor exercises such as
these because they do provide
very useful insight into trends
in the travel market,” the
tourism official emph-
asised.

“Product and product devel-

opment remains a top priority of
the Ministry of Tourism and
Aviation, and the industry’s abil-
ity to be consistently responsive
to what our country’s own
research is telling us about the
needs and concerns of our
guests is critical.

THE TRIBUNE

VACANCY NOTICE

Prison sentence
is upheld for
aes assault
FROM page one

Sawyer referred to the evi-
dence on which King had
been convicted. According
to that evidence, the com-
plainant was a married
woman who had had a hys-
terectomy and while her sur-
gical wounds had apparently
healed, she had developed
keloids which caused her to
experience considerable
pain.

After discussing her prob-
lems with a female friend,
she decided to consult Dr
King who describes himself
asa doctor although he has
had no medical training
whatsoever and is not a reg-
istered medical practitioner
under the laws of the
Bahamas, Justice Sawyer
noted. She further noted
that King apparently deals
with natural medicines and is
a “sex therapist,” which she
understood to mean that he
used various methods to
help persons improve their
libido.

. «On the complainant’s first
visit to Dr King’s office, the
two had a discussion about
her problem and on her sec-
ond visit she told the doctor
that she needed medication
for keloids. The doctor told
her that he would stop by
her house and bring her

some. He went to her house .

later with his bag and sug-
gested that since he had time
to spare, they should do a
“treatment.”

The woman, according to
‘hér evidence reluctantly
went into her bedroom and
Yay on the bed but accord-
‘ing to the doctor’s evidence
she had done so willingly.
There, the doctor asked for a

Claim that greed played
part in new straw
market price increase

wise, I over and repeatedly said
that you cannot build that build-
ing with that amount of mon-
ey,” Mr Foster said.

The straw market that
went out to tender, he said,
went out for $100 per square
foot which was a remarkable
price.

“Everybody Eros that an
architect is paid on the bases
on the percentage of the build-
ing agreed by contract. Maybe
he has a problem with a black
man making money. Maybe he
would like to determine what
my value was and that is what is
wrong with our society today.
Had it been one of the fair
skinned architects it would be
okay to charge 14 per cent, 15
per cent, it’s okay, but it’s not
okay for a little black architect
like me to charge six per cent,”
he said.

The former minister said that
one of the problems he had with
regard to the price tag of the
straw market centres around
greed.

“The problem we have with
this straw market from the
beginning was greed and that
played a great part as to why
the straw market is at the price
where it is today and it bothers
me greatly as a Bahamian. The
cost was prohibitive. Midway
through some things went down
that caused the price to sky-
rocket.

“The final edifice I saw was
some three stories. The reason
why we went to two stories was
you did not have sufficient
space on the ground for these
stores. A design was in there
for a restaurant/nightclub over-
looking the waterfront so we

could induce the foreigners and
locals alike to migrate to the
second floor. We also had
decided to put some stores on
the second floor on the Bay
Street side so that we could
attract people to go to the sec-
ond floor so that those on the
first floor would not have a dis-
tinct advantage over those on
the second floor. I agree that a
cost in excess of $20 million is
more than excessive for the con-
struction of a straw market.
Three floors was putting a lot of
money on the overall cost which
was not necessary,” Mr Miller
said.

Mr Miller said that Mr Foster
submitted his renderings for the
straw market and it was a three-
story structure even though his
ministry specifically said that it
could only be a two- story build-
ing from the studies that were
done.

“Tt was nonsensical to go with
a three-story or four-story struc-
ture. From the beginning the
straw vendors were complain-
ing from the first straw market
that the problem that they had
was people not wanting to go

one or two floors above the |

ground floor to purchase any
straw goods.

“That same committee decid-
ed that the group that was put
together would be responsible
for the interior designs of the
straw market so that the flow
would be beneficial to the straw
vendors appreciating that there
were some 600 straw vendors
that we had to put in there. I
then took a team of persons
from my ministry to China. We
gathered all the information
that was necessary for the kind
of conduits we were going to
have for them to display their
items,” he said.

UN official: Cuba has
solved its energy crisis
without sacrificing
its environment



@ ACHIM Steiner, Executive Direc-
tor of the United Nations Environment
Programm, UNEP, attends a press con-

ference as part of the 6th Environment
and Development International Confer-
ence in Havana, July 4, 2007. The four-
days conference ends Friday.

WM HAVANA

CUBA has solved crippling energy short-
ages that plagued the island as recently as 2004
without sacrificing a long-term commitment
to promoting environmentally friendly fuels,
the head of the U.N. Environment Program
said Wednesday, according to Associated Press.

The electric grid still relies too heavily on
wasteful gas-flare reactors and heavy polluting
diesel generators, but the communist govern-
ment has taken important steps toward devel-
oping wind and solar power, as well as ethanol
from sugar cane, said Achim Steiner, the pro-
gram's executive director.

"Cuba a few years ago was facing a real ener-

gy crisis, 16 hours of ... electricity cuts and
therefore a realization that the economy was
going to collapse under this system," said Stein-
er, in Havana for a conference on the envi-
ronment and development.

"In terms of a short term response, it is quite
remarkable how Cuba, under its economic con-
ditions, managed to solve that crisis," he said.

At a news conference, Steiner said "Cuba
can look proudly at having solved a short-term
crisis with a long-term commitment toward
cleaner energy." He said his organization want-
ed to "put a spotlight on Cuba's efforts."

Just three years ago, the country was hit by
blackouts that wounded the economy while
enraging a population suffering through the
merciless summer months without air condi-
tioning, fans or any way to refrigerate food.

The government's response was a sweeping
"energy revolution" that included an overall of
the antiquated electrical grid, as well conser-
vation drives.

Fidel Castro appeared on television nearly
daily to explain improvements in excruciating
detail and government workers went door to
door in many neighborhoods, replacing incan-
descent light bulbs with more- sCusGent alter-
natives.

Steiner praised the energy eeuitees but
noted that things were far from ideal. A gas
reactor throws a plume of dark smoke over
Havana's otherwise idyllic bay and. most vehi-
cles here use leaded gasoline and diesel that fill
the air with pollutants.

Meanwhile, Cuba's economy has recovered
well after the 1991 collapse of the Soviet Union
cost Havana billions in generous subsidies. But
that recovery has largely been fueled by oil-rich
Venezuela, whose socialist president, Hugo
Chavez, provides the island with oil at favorable
eases

~The US ambassador to
Venezuela ends term

regretting lack of dialogue

with Chavez government.

@ CARACAS, Venezuela

AFTER three rocky years
as Washington's top envoy to
Venezuela, Ambassador
William Brownfield ended his
term Wednesday with regrets
he could not do more to
establish a dialogue with Pres-
ident Hugo Chavez's govern-

ment, according to Associated

Press.

Brownfield, who is taking.

Over as ambassador to
Colombia, attended a flag-
raising ceremony at the US.
Embassy in Caracas as he pre-
pared to depart.

"IT regret that I haven't
managed to establish a direct,
serious, pragmatic dialogue
between the two. govern-
ments, a dialogue to resolve
problems that involve both
countries, like drugs, terror-
ism, international crime,"
Brownfield told reporters
Tuesday.

Brownfield took over as
ambassador to Caracas in
August 2004, and his tenure
was marked by growing hos-
tility between the two gov-
ernments. On at least two
occasions, Chavez threatened
to expel Brownfield, ‘accusing
him of meddling in Venezue-
la's affairs.

A career diplomat from
Texas with a penchant for
understatement that at times
verged on sarcasm, Brown-
field drew Chavez's anger by
voicing Washington's con-
cerns about the Venezuelan
government and handing out



CBs Sahin Aiea ene 1S gh wih bd raga aa os hent oo

~ Gndependence

donations to youth baseball
leagues and charities in pro-
Chavez slums.

Chavez first threatened to
expel Brownfield last year
after accusing him of provok-
ing a confrontation by visit-
ing a poor pro-government
area where protesters beat on
the ambassador's car, hurled
eggs and chased his convoy.

Brownfield often responded °

to Chavéz by saying he hoped
the two countries could find
common ground in areas of
mutual interest.

He said more work is need-
ed on counterterrorism and
counter-drug cooperation —

both of which Washington:

says have been severely defi-
cient under Chavez.

Asked about Chavez's
recent spate of arms purchas-
es, Brownfield said it's impor-
tant for Venezuela to be open
about those deals to avoid
"the domino effect producing
a weapons race" in the region.

"IT believe the solution is

transparency," he said.

Venezuela has already
bought about US$3 billion
worth of arms from Russia,
including 53 military heli-
copters, 100,000 Kalashnikov
rifles, and 24 SU-30 Sukhoi
fighter jets. Chavez says he is
also. considering buying Russ-
ian submarines.

"If the only reason to buy
submarines is to protect
against an attack by the Unit-
ed States, the purchase isn't
necessary because the Unit-
ed States never has attacked,

‘eh aye

is not attacking and will never
attack Venezuela," Brown-
field was quoted as saying in
the Venezuelan newspaper El
Universal.

He spoke at the embassy
Tuesday before an Indepen-
dence Day fireworks display.
Chaiting with visitors, he
wore a T-shirt poking fun at a
popular pro-Chavez rally

Something old, something new,

Charlene Both realised their
wedding day.dream by exchang-
ing their vows in the sparkling
waters of Blue Lagoon Island
with their witnesses — Jake and

Fatman, two of Dolphin.

Encounters’ dolphins — looking
on adoringly.

“From the beginning we
knew that we wanted dolphins
to be a part of our wedding. It
was just a matter of finding the
perfect place to do it. We
looked everywhere. We
searched the Internet for so
many places. Then we found
Dolphin Encounters and it was
just perfect — everything we
wanted,” said Mrs Both.

The couple flew over 5,000
miles from the Netherlands to
exchange vows in the Bahamas,
leaving family and friends
behind as they escaped to par-
adise.

“Many people may think it
strange to get married with dol-
phins, but the truth is dolphin
weddings are what anyone
would wish for their day- it is







special, beautiful, meaningful,
at times tearfully joyful and
always, always fun,” said Latoya
Rolle, guest services co-ordina-

“Dolphin Encounters has liter-

white decorations. As they
descended in the water and
began the ceremony, Jake (one
of the male dolphins) brought
their wedding bands over as
they silently exchanged vows.
After the minister pronounced
the couple man and wife, the
pair and the dolphins kissed in
unison.

Over the years, Dolphin
Encounters has helped couples
make their dreams come true
by arranging their weddings in
paradise.

Wedding packages include
the service of a minister, deco-
rations on the island and on
platforms, catering, a wedding
cake, champagne and profes-
sional photos and video.

Unlike traditional weddings,
dolphin weddings require a few
unique changes. For example,
florists must provide bouquets
that are capable of being taken
into the water and sometimes
carried by a dolphin, rings must
be placed in a waterproof, float-
able box (provided by Dolphin
Encounters), and there are
times when the officiating min-
ister is required to perform the
ceremony in the water along-
side the dolphins.

Reverend Dr Jackson Miller
of Unforgettable Bahamas
Weddings has married hun-
dreds of couples on Blue
Lagoon Island.

He said the fact that the wed-
ding is performed alongside dol-
phins does not take away from
the beauty and seriousness of
the union.

“T myself hope to get married
here on Blue Lagoon Island one
day. It’s truly a wonderful expe-
rience. I wish I could sit here
and do this all day and marry
couples. Being here reminds me
of how I imagine heaven is. It’s
just a peaceful, beautiful, calm
paradise,” he said.

‘Deacon Camarie Curties;
_ who assisted Dr Miller in per-

forming the wedding, said:
“Weddings here are just as spe-
cial if not more so. It’s so inti-
mate and private, and hassle-
free. You can’t beat that.”
After their swim programme,
the newly married couple
changed into their traditional
wedding attire and Mr Both





- reflected on his marriage to his: ~- ~~

new bride.

“This feels so incredibly good
right now. I feel like I’m dream-
ing. I’m in paradise with my
new beautiful bride. It doesn’t
get better than this. Yesterday
morning I was calling her Ms .
Klein and today I’m calling her
Mrs Both. I’m looking forward
to our lives together,” he said.

Jet carrying space shuttle Atlantis
lands at Florida’s Cape Canaveral

.°.° ML CAPE CANAVERAL,

Florida

A JUMBO jet carrying the
space shuttle Atlantis landed
Tuesday at Kennedy Space
Center after a trip that began
in California, according to
Associated Press.

A modified Boeing 747 with
the shuttle mounted on its
back touched down on the
shuttle landing strip around
8:25 a.m. EDT (1225 GMT)
after taking off from a refuel-
ing stop in Kentucky.

The jet made several stops
on its cross-country trip. On
Monday, it landed in Fort
Campbell, Kentucky, after
stops at Offutt Air Force Base
in Nebraska and Amarillo,
Texas.

Atlantis, carrying seven
astronauts, landed June 22 at
Edwards Air Force Base in
California after a 14-day con-
struction mission at the inter-
national space station.

Bad weather at the Florida
launch site forced NASA to
divert to the shuttle's alter-
nate landing site in California.
NASA prefers to land shut-
tles in Florida to avoid the
nearly $1.7 million price tag
to transport them back.

The vehicle will be cleaned
and refurbished before being
readied for its next trip, sched-
uled for December.

The next scheduled mission
will send Endeavour to the
space station on Aug. 7.

COUNT Gottfried von Bis-

-- age of 44, police said Wednes-

apartment in London’s tony
Chelsea district on Monday.

A post-mortem examination
was due to be held Wednesday.

Gottfried Alexander Leopold
Graf von Bismarck-Schon-
hausen was born in 1962 and
educated in Germany and
Switzerland before attending
Oxford University in England.

As an undergraduate, he was
known for his lavish parties and











*

extravagant appearance, which
at times involved dressing in
fishnet stockings or traditional
Bavarian lederhosen.

Bismarck’s life was clouded
by two deaths at his homes. In
1986, Olivia Channon, the 22-
year-old daughter of a Conser-
vative government minister,
died of a drug overdose in Bis-
marck’s bed at Oxford.

Bismarck — who was not in
the bed at the time — was not
implicated in the death,
although he was charged and
fined for possessing cocaine and
amphetamine sulfate.

At his trial, his lawyer said
Channon’s death “is going to
be a shadow over the head of
Gottfried von Bismarck, prob-
ably for the rest of his life.” The
count said years later that some
had accused him of disgracing
the Bismarck name.

Bismarck eventually settled
in London, working in finance
and the telecom business. He
remained out of the headlines
until August, when a 38-year-

old man, Anthony Casey, died ~

after falling from a terrace dur-
ing a party at Bismarck’s home.

Dr. Paul Knapman, presiding
over an inquest at Westminster
Coroner’s Court, said one room
of the apartment contained a
“bizarre” assortment of items
including a large rubber tar-
paulin on the floor, towels,
lubricants, bottles of vodka and
buckets of sex toys.

Police concluded Casey’s
death was an accident, and the
coroner’s verdict was “death by
misadventure,” meaning no one
was to blame.

A coroner’s inquest is expect-
ed to be held into Bismarck’s
death. Funeral details were not
immediately available.

THE fish that bared its

Spanish survivors
of tourist attack in
Yemen return home,
along with bodies

of seven killed

@ MADRID, Spain

FIVE bandaged survivors of a
suicide bombing at a Yemeni
temple returned home Wednes-
day — one catried on a stretch-
er — along with the bodies of
seven fellow tourists who died in
the attack, according to Associ-
ated Press.

Foreign Minister Miguel
Angel Moratinos greeted the
tourists as they debarked a
Spanish Armed Forces plane
just after dawn Wednesday. Rel-
atives hugged their loved ones,
grim looks on their faces, while
a motorcade of hearses removed
the coffins from the air base.

Crown Prince Felipe and his
wife, Princess Letizia, accompa-
nied by Deputy Prime Minister
Maria Teresa Fernandez de la
Vega, later visited grieving rel-
atives of those killed at a hotel in
Madrid.

A sixth wounded Spaniard,
Maria Asuncion Vitorica,
remained in a Yemeni hospital
to undergo a second operation
and was reported to be in seri-
ous condition, Spanish authori-
ties said.

The attack occurred Monday
when a suspected al-Qaida sui-
cide bomber plowed his car into
a group of tourists visiting a tem-
ple linked to the ancient Queen
of Sheba, killing seven Spaniards
and two Yemenis in a part of
Yemen known for its lawless-
ness.

The attack came less than two
weeks after the U.S. Embassy
warned Americans to avoid the
area, which until recent years
was rarely visited because of fre-
quent kidnappings of foreign-
ers.

Yemen remained on high-
alert Wednesday as security
forces deployed to the capital
to protect embassies, govern-
ment buildings and top state
officials. Nine Islamists have
been arrested so far in a gov-
ernment sweep following the
bombing, but they are not con-
sidered suspects, police said.

Yemeni security officials said
Tuesday that they had been
warned about a possible al-Qai-
da attack, but they did not think
it would be a suicide bombing.
They said al-Qaida had warned
it would attack Yemeni oil facil-
ities, government institutions
and foreign embassies.

Hundreds of militants surrender
at radical mosque in Pakistan

i ISLAMABAD, Pakistan

ABOUT 700 followers of

radical clerics surrendered
Wednesday to government
forces who encircled the Lal
Masjid, or Red Mosque,
with troops and armored
personnel carriers, accord-
ing to Associated Press.
Sporadic firing erupted
around the mosque and an
adjacent women’s seminary
in the early evening while
three helicopter gunships

circled overhead. Clashes ©

killed at least 16 people
Tuesday, officials said.

Minister of Information
Mohammed Ali Durrani
said that “a few hundred”
militants could remain
inside the mosque, whose
clerics have challenged the
government by trying to
impose a Taliban-style ver-
sion of Islamic law in the
capital.

One of those who decided
to give up, 15-year-old
Maryam Qayyeum, said
many were not leaving the
seminary. “They are happy.
_They only want martyrdom.

‘They don’t want to go
home,” she said.

The militants had been
ordered by the government
to lay down their arms and
‘surrender by 11 a.m.
Wednesday, following a day
of clashes between security
forces and militants living
inside the sprawling mosque
compound.

All women and children
who surrender will be grant-
ed amnesty, but males
involved in killings and oth-
er crimes as well as the top

@ PAKISTANI female religious students surrender before a soldier of the paramilitary force, and female police officers Wednesday, July 4, 2007: in Islamabad, Pakistan.
Armed militants holed up ata radical mosque in the Pakistani capital must surrender or face punitive action from security forces, a government minister warned, a day after
gun battles left at least nine people dead.

“The deadline has expired
but we are not going to start
any action immediately. We
do not want bloodshed. We
are reasonably sure that

better sense will prevail,”
said the capital’s top securi-
ty official Khalid Pervez.

He said the government
is giving about $83 to each
person who surrenders to
help them return home.

As the deadline passed,
the mosque’s deputy leader
Abdul Rashid Ghazi said he
was prepared to talk with
the government but added,

“We will continue to defend

ourselves.”

Qayyeum said mosque
leaders were not trying to
stop students from giving
up. But her mother, who
had come to take her home
said, “They are making
speeches. They want to
incite them.”

Johar Ali, 20, who had
come to the mosque to sup-
port the militants several
days ago said there were
still hundreds inside, but he
did not see any suicide
bombers, who the mosque
leaders claimed were ready



to launch attacks.
The violence started
Tuesday when male and

‘female:student followers of

the mosque —-some of
them jaasked and armed —
rushed toward a police
checkpoint. Gunfire broke
out among the students and
security forces, sparking a
daylong series of clashes.

A senior government
spokesman, Anwar Mah-
mood, said the death toll in
Islamabad had risen to 16,
but declined to give a
breakdown of the victims.
Earlier, the government
said they had included mili-
tants, innocent bystanders, a
journalist and members of
the security forces.

Ghazi told The Associat-
ed Press that 20 of his stu-
dents had been killed by
security forces, including
two young men climbing to
the top of the mosque for
morning prayers Wednes-
day.

A young woman was also
shot and wounded on the
roof of the women’s semi-
nary, he said.

“She was shot by sniper
fire. They are shooting
directly at us,” he said ina
telephone interview. Ghazi
said there were no negotia-
tions under way with the
government to end the
standoff.

Meeting
After a meeting of top
officials early Wednesday
including President Gen.
Pervez Musharraf, Deputy

Interior Minister Zafar
Warriach said the govern-

' ment had imposed an imme-

diate curfew on the area
around the mosque. He said
authorities had run out of
patience after a six-month
standoff with the hard-line
clerics at the mosque.

“The government has
decided that those people
from the madrassa who are
defaming Pakistan and
Islam will face an opera-
tion,” Warriach said.

In the past six months, the
clerics have challenged the
government by sending stu-

dents from the mosque to

and police in an anti-vice

~ Campaign.

: The bloodshed has added

'-to a sense of crisis in Pak-

istan, where Musharraf — a
major ally of President Bush
— already faces embold-
ened militants near the
Afghan border and a pro-
democracy movement trig-
gered by his botched
attempt to fire the country’s
chief justice.

The mosque siege sparked
street protests Tuesday in
the cities of Lahore and
Quetta organized by radical

. religious parties.

On Wednesday, officials
said a suicide car bomber
rammed a vehicle into a
Pakistan army convoy near
the Afghan border, killing
five soldiers and five civil-
ians. And unidentified
assailants fired a rocket ata
police station in northwest-
ern Pakistan, killing one
officer and wounding four.

It was not known if the
two incidents were linked
to the mosque crisis.

nine tricks, with no way to develop a
10th. When he next led a diamond,
East won with the king, cashed the
jack of clubs-and played another
club. Declarer ruffed, but West took
the last two tricks with the ace of dia-
monds and a club for down one.
The second declarer saw that
unless he scored a diamond trick, he

would fall a trick short, but that this.

could not be done if trumps were
drawn first. Therefore, after the 4-0
trump split was revealed, he led a
diamond from dummy at trick three.

South knew that if East started
with a doubleton diamond, the
defenders could negotiate a diamond
ruff, but this might not be easy for
them to do. It was a risk, though, that
had to be taken.

East followed low to the first dia-
mond, and South’s jack lost to the
ace. West retumed a club to East’s
jack, and East shifted to a spade.
Declarer won with the king, drew
trumps, led the ten of diamonds to
East’s king and claimed the balance.

Of course, East could have
defeated the contract by nising with
the diamond king at trick three, lead-
ing a diamond to West’s ace and ruff-
ing the diamond return. Alterna-
tively, West could have led a dia-
mond to East’s king after taking the
ace, and East could then have led a
low club to West’s ten'to obtain the
ruff. But South saw that his only
legitimate chance was for the oppo-
nents to go wrong, and this was far
better than what his counterpart
elected to do at the other table.

ates, however, it’s important that you
actually do know what you are doing.

TAURUS - April 21/May 21
Feeling adventurous, Taurus?

Put yourself on a budget, and stick to
it as best you can.

CANCER - June 22/July 22

Compared with the problems of
some, your concerns seem pretty
minor, Scorpio. Go ahead and put
your worries behind you. A chance
encounter leads to romantic sparks.
SAGITTARIUS — Nov 23/Dec 21
.You’ve been feeling especially
jubilant recently and things will
Star} to tone down soon, but there’s

~ Rain-swolle
but flood:

‘MIAMI, Okla.

RAIN had stopped falling
Wednesday and some bloated
rivers had crested, but many
evacuees were still unable to
return to flooded homes in a
three-state region and experts
warnéd conditions may yet
worsen, according to Associ-
ated Press.

Flood warnings were
remained Wednesday for the
tain-swollen Neosho River,
which forced hundreds of res-
idents to evacuate and blocked

key roads in northeast Okla- °

homa.

The river crested at 29.2 feet
at about 1 a.m. Wednesday but
wasn’t expected to fall below
its flood stage of 15 feet at
Miami until Sunday, said
Chuck Hodges, a meteorolo-
gist with the National Weath-
er Service in Tulsa.

“The upper system that has
been almost stationary over
Oklahoma and given us all the
rain has drifted well south into.
Texas now,” Hodges said. “So
for the next several days, there
will only be a 20 to 30 percent
chance of rain just about every
day.”

Monday was the 20th
straight day that rain had fall-
en in Oklahoma City, but
Tuesday was dry.

The Caney River was still
rising just north of Tulsa,
threatening homes northeast
of Collinsville on Wednesday.

More than two weeks of
soaking weather has caused
widespread flooding in Texas,
Oklahoma and Kansas.

While the rain had moved
out of Oklahoma, rain fell
along much of the Texas Gulf
Coast during the morning and
the weather service said more
was likely from South Texas
north to the Dallas-Fort Worth

area.

“We're going to see one of
our heavier rain days of this
event,” meteorologist Monte
Oaks said Wednesday morn-

ing in the weather service’s
Austin-San Antonio office.

In addition to the flooding,
the Verdigris River had been
carrying an oil slick of 42,000
gallons of crude oil that spilled
from a flooded Kansas refinery
toward Oklahoma’s Lake
Oologah reservoir, which
supplies water to several
cities.

However, environmental





officials who flew over the area
where the Verdigris River
enters Oologah Lake said

‘there were no indications

Tuesday the oil had entered
the lake, DEQ spokeswoman
Skylar McElhaney said
Wednesday.

Upstream in Kansas, the
Verdigris was beginning to
recede at Coffeyville, but it
was kept high by water being

released from the Elk City and
Fall River Toronto Lake reser-
voirs, said Jim Miller, Mont-
gomery County emergency
manager.

At least 1,000 people were
out of their homes throughout
southeast Kansas, said Sharon
Watson, spokeswoman for the
Kansas adjutant general.

The evacuees included
Frankie Brewer, whose family

is waiting for water to recede
from their home _ in
Osawatomie, Kan.

“They say, ‘God willing and
the creek don’t rise,”’ Brewer
said Tuesday.

“Well, the creek went right
through my trailer.”

In hard-hit Texas, torrential
downpours caused more flood-
ing early Tuesday in northern
and easteia sections of the

state, and some people had to
be rescued from vehicles.

The North Texas Municipal
Water District ended more
than two years of mandatory
water restrictions, saying all
lakes in the area were filled to
capacity.

The weather has been
blamed for 11 deaths in Texas
in the past two weeks and two
people are missing.

Fre



port economy gets

‘a real shot in the arm’

* Customs verdict to allow Freeport wholesale and retail licensees to compete with south Florida _
* Ruling will aid Nassau firms in establishing Freeport base, and unlock Hawksbill Creek benefits and transhipment potential

@ By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

he Supreme Court

‘ verdict that

backed the Home

Centre on the dis-

play of bonded

goods at retail has given

Freeport’s economy “a real shot

in the arm”, an attorney told

The Tribune yesterday, as it will

enable wholesale and retail

licensees of the Grand Bahama

Port Authority (GBPA) to

compete with souith Florida

businesses by offering more
competitive prices.

Fred Smith, an attorney and
partner at Callender’s & Co,
who had previously won four
separate verdicts against the

Customs Department in rela-
tion to bonded goods, said the
Supreme Court verdict in the
Home Centre case “builds on
the line of cases in which the
court has emphasised that
Freeport is a free port; it is a
tax-free zone”.

“This particular decision
makes it a whole lot easier for
retailers and wholesalers in
Freeport to stock merchandise
and sell it to licensees,” Mr
Smith told The Tribune.

“This provides them with the
opportunity to bring in inven-
tory without having to pay tax
[customs duties] ahead of time,
and effectively allows them to
compete with the US market.
This means wholesalers and
hardware suppliers can stock a

US tourist arrivals
drop 14% to April

@ By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

UNITED States tourist
arrivals to the Bahamas were
down by 14 per cent for the four
months to April 2007, the peak
of the tourism season, providing
a further sign that the sector is
in trouble as the Bahamas Hotel
Association (BHA) warned its
members there was “a price to
pay for apathy”.

Detailing the suspected
impact that the Western Hemi-
sphere Travel Initiative’s
(WHTI) passport requirements
had had on the hotel and
tourism industry during what
should be its seasonal high-
point, the BHA said the
Bahamas also saw 10,000 fewer
Spring Break student visitors in
March 2007.

In a letter to Harry Reid,
majority leader of the US Sen-
ate, on June 21, 2007, the BHA
said it suspected that most of
these ‘missing’ students had
probably opted to take a cruise
or vacation in the US rather

Spring Break
visitors fall by
10,000 in March

than incur the time, hassle and
extra cost of applying for an
obtaining a passport.

The BHA said: “Through
April of this year, tourism
arrivals by Americans are down
by 14 per cent. This decline has
occurred despite our industry’s
very aggressive and costly cam-
paign to reimburse the cost of
obtaining passports for —
to the Bahamas.

“The decrease in business is

ding, family and impulse busi-
ness. The time and cost in pro-
cessing passports is turning

Morton union
in strike threat

@ By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

THE union representing the
majority of Morton Salt’s 104
non-managerial employees told
The Tribune that the company’s
decision to temporarily lay-off
workers for three weeks was
“not necessary”, alleging that
some 90,800 tonnes of salt were
harvestable now, and threaten-
ing industrial action over the
move.

Wilfred Seymour, the
Bahamas Industrial, Manufac-
turers and Allied Workers
Union’s president, said the tem-
porary lay-offs, which will take
effect in the week beginning
Monday, July 16, following a
10-day notice period, would
impact the entire Inagua econ-
omy and community due to the
fact that the firm directly
employs 60 per cent of the
island’s workforce.

He added of the lay-offs: “It’s
not good at all because most of
the members feel at this time,
when we are so close to getting
back on full-scale production,
the temporary lay-offs are not
necessaty........

“For the past few weeks, we
have had tremendous weather.

Says lay-offs ‘not
necessary’ and alleges
90,800 tonnes ready
to harvest, as it warns
on industrial talks

I got, from a reliable source that
does the salt measurements,
that there’s 90,800 tonnes of salt
there that’s harvestable; ready
to be harvested now. That’s
enough for four weeks, and if
the weather holds, we will have
another 10-12 tonnes ready
before we get half-way
through.”

Mr Seymour threatened that
the union would take strike
action once the lay-offs started,
indicating that Morton Salt’s
move could impact the indus-
trial agreement negotiations
that both parties hoped were
drawing to a close.

“It really isn’t necessary. As
soon as the lay-off start, we’ll
stand the entire job down and
call it that,” Mr Seymour said.

“The serious thing about it is
that we are now closing out an

larger amount of inventory.

“Licensees will be less likely
to feel they have to go to Flori-
da or elsewhere to get a better
deal from wholesalers. This will
help create Freeport as a com-
petitor to south Florida. The
licensees have to have an
advantage in doing business in
Freeport, which was what was
contemplated by the Hawksbill
Creek Agreement.

“It gives a boost to wholesale
and retail licensees in Freeport,
which is exactly what the econ-
omy needs - whatever shot in
the arm it can get. We need the
Hawksbill Creek Agreement to
come into its own, so that
licensees can finally enjoy the
benefits intended 50 years ago,
and for the next 50 years.”

Mr Smith added that this ver-
dict “paves the wy” for a range
of Nassau-based businesses to
establish operations in Freeport
to take advantage of the fact
they could import inventory and
product as bonded, and not pay
customs duties until the prod-
ucts were moved to Nassau or
sold to non-licensee businesses
or he public.

“That will help boost the
economy here for Nassau busi-
nesses to have a base where
they can do that,” Mr Smith
explained. “With the Freeport
Container Port here and its
transhipment potential, it’s an
ideal opportunity for Bahamian
businesses to bring in merchan-
dise without paying tax and
export it.”

Mr Smith said countries such
as the Gulf States, Qatar and
the United Arab Emirates, had
set up duty free bazaars that
were doing “huge business”,
with buyers coming into look
at the merchandise, order it and
ship it out duty-free.

As revealed by The Tribune,
Supreme Court Justice Isaacs
ruled against Customs on the
definition of ‘consumable
stores’, deciding that just
because goods were displayed
at retail in public view did not
mean they were ‘un-bonded’,
with duty liable to be paid on
them.

He also found that goods «

company keeping all its 104 nOn-manager-
ial staff employed during a 15-week period
when no salt was harvested, its managing
director telling The Tribune that the com-
pany’s current plight showed the need to
diversify Inagua’s economy.

Glenn Bannister, Morton (Bahamas)
managing director, said in the wake of the
company anouncing its decision to tem-
porarily lay-off staff for three weeks, a move
set to commence in the week beginning
July 16, said the company’s per annum rev-
enues had been cut in half by the lack of salt
production.

With the company’s salt pans having
received 30 inches of rain in the past few
months, and harvesting come to a halt on
March 13, 2007, Mr Bannister said Morton

Firm hopes to resume salt production in early August

- and close industrial agreement in ‘one to two weeks’,
MORTON Salt’s costs are “three times |’
what they would normally be” due to the

as chief calls for diversifying Inagua economy

Salt would “be lucky to do” 600,000 tonnes
or half its usual per annum sates of 1.2
million tonnes in 2007. -

Describing this as “a huge loss for us”, he
explained that with salt production cut in
half Morton Bahamas’ revenues would also
be slashed in half for 2007, and this was
barring the absence of any more heavy rain-
fall or hurricanes.

Morton Salt employs about 60 per cent of

Inagua’s workforce, and Mr Bannister sug-

gested that the island’s economy needed
to be diversified to reduce its dependence
on the company for employment and
income.

He added that among the industries that

Inagua’s economy should look at was sus-
tainable, eco-tourism, and there is a project
underway with the Inter-American Devel-
opment Bank (IDB) to explore such oppor-
tunities.

“Diversification would definitely help the
island of Inagua, and it is something that
should be looked at relatively seriously,” Mr
Bannister told The Tribune. “If there was
some diversification, such as sustainable
tourism, you’d have another source of rev-
enue and income. Salt thaking is agricul-
ture, and the business is weather depen-

The limits on mergers

THE TRIBUNE

Syl

and other partnerships )

xempted Limited

Partnerships and

mergers are two

corporate vehicles
that may be used to achieve
specific investment objectives
by ‘potential investors in the
Bahamas.

The unique features of
these corporate vehicles
allow greater flexibility in the
overall strategic planning and
structuring of investments
within and outside the
Bahamas.

Exempted Limited

Partnerships

The exempted limited part-
nership (ELP) is a limited
partnership comprised of lim-
ited partners, who limit their
liability to their investment
interests in the entity, and
general partners who have

unlimited liability for the
debts of the partnership and
maintain its active manage-
ment.

The operational, financial
and legal obligations, and
corporate maintenance, are
the responsibilities of the

ELP’s general partners. It is .

they who can sue, and be
sued, in matters related to or
affecting the ELP.

General partners may also
initiate the partnership’s dis-
solution. Limited partners
may be liable as general part-
ners if they transact with a
third party in the partner-
ship’s name.

In the Bahamas, the
Exempted Limited Partner-
ship Act 1995, and the
Exempted Limited Partner-
ship (Amendment) Act 1998
(referred to collectively as

‘the Act’), govern the forma-
tion, operation, corporate
maintenance and legality of
the ELP.

The ELP is required to
have at least one general
partner, who may be a local
resident or a company incor-
porated or registered under
Bahamian companies’ legisla-
tion (an IBC under the Inter-
national Business Companies
Act 2000, as amended, or a
foreign registered company
under the Companies Act
1992, as amended).

ELPs are typically, though
not exclusively, used as cor-
porate vehicles for invest-
ment funds in the Bahamas.
The partnership may operate
within the Bahamas or
abroad.

In order to form an ELP,
Section 9 of the Act requires

that information regarding
the name of the ELP, general
nature of the business, the
period of duration, registered
office address, the full names
and addresses of the general
partners, and a declaration
that the ELP shall not under-
take business with the public
in the Bahamas (as defined
by the Act) be filed with the
Registrar General.

The restriction on “under-
taking business with the pub-,
lic in the Bahamas” is subject
to certain exceptions, particu-
larly in relation to business
with Bahamian IBCs‘and
other related business of an
ancillary nature.

Where the general partner
is a corporate entity, the Cer-
tificate of Incorporation and
a Certificate of Good Stand- ‘
ing must also be filed with —
the Registrar General.

The words ‘Limited Part- ,
nership’ or the letters ‘LP’,
must be included in the name
of the ELP.

The registration fee for an -
ELP is $850, and the ELP is °

mee uired to pay an annual fee

f $475 each year, except in
the year of its initial registra-
tion. Notwithstanding the
fact that the ELP is exempt
from annual business licence
fees, stamp duty and other
local forms of taxation for a
50-year period, it is required
to file a certificate each year
with payment of its annual
fee, indicating it did not do
business with the public in
the Bahamas within the pre-
vious year. The ELP is also
required to file notice of any
changes in its registration
statement.

It is important to note that
for the purposes.of exemp-
tion from local taxation, a
corporate general partner
that is deemed ‘Resident’ for
exchange control purposes in
the Bahamas, under the
Exchange Control Regula-
tions, will not be exempt
from annual business licence
fees, stamp duty and other
forms of local taxation.

While there is a require-
ment for a partnership agree-
ment to govern the ELP’s
internal and external affairs,
under the Act (as is typically .
required for most partnership
arrangements) itis highly
advisable, as a matter of good
corporate practice and to
preserve protection of the
partners’ legal interests, for —
persons seeking to use ELPs -
for their investment or other
commercial purposes to
ensure that a partnership
agreement is drafted apd
implemented upon forma-
tion.

Act 2000 states that a Certifi-
cate of Merger is prima facie
evidence of compliance with
all requirements of the Act in
respect of a merger between
two companies into a surviv-
ing Bahamian International
Business Company (IBC).
Since the surviving compa-
ny will be a Bahamian IBC, it
will be deemed to be incorpo-

‘rated under the Act and gov-

erned by Bahamian laws, par-
ticularly in relation to the
efficacy and legitimacy of the
merger. This includes but is
not limited to the effective

‘date, legal and procedural

requirements for the proper
registration of the merger in
this jurisdiction.

Once the two companies
have been merged into a sur-
viving Bahamian IBC and the
Certificate of Merger issued,
the merger will be irre-
versible.

The Act does not contain
any provisions that address
issues of ‘de-merger’, which
seeks to allow the merged
company to legally re-organ-
ise into its original structure
of existing as two separate
companies, as they did prior
to the merger.

Additionally, it is not cus-
tomary in this jurisdiction to
rescind a merger after a Cer-
tificate of Merger has been
issued by the Registrar Gen--
eral, particularly where the
merger involves a Bahamian
IBC and a foreign company.

It is important that the
principals of the merged
company notify the Registrar
of Companies (or his equiva-
lent) in the jurisdiction of the
foreign company that has
merged with the Bahamian
IBC, of the merger, including
the fact that the Bahamian
IBC is now the surviving
company. They should also
submit the relevant docu-
ments (inclusive of corporate
documents, agreements and
resolutions) to the Registrar
of Companies, evidencing the
merger into the surviving
Bahamian IBC.

The beneficial owners of
the merged company should
be aware that the new com-
pany will be a completely dif-
ferent and separate entity
from either of the two com-
panies that existed before,
notwithstanding the possibili-
ty of retaining the same name

the Mangrove Action Project,
said the donation was designed
to distract from the issues
raised by the project and ques-
tioned why it was made.

Mr Quarto said: “ World-
wide, environmentalists and
island communities are speak-
ing out against this develop-
ment. Eminent marine biolo-
gists and conservationists
denounce this mega-develop-
ment for the many ways it will
harm crucial reef, mangrove
and terrestrial environments.

“Guana Cay's environment
is unique in this world, and its
elkhorn and staghorn coral
structure is considered one of
the best and last of its type in
the world. National treasures
like Guana Cay need to be
protected, and ensuring this
island is safeguarded is one of





BNT's stewardship responsi-
bilities.

“Guana Cay's marine envi-
ronment has supported a sus-
tainable fishing community for
generations, its beauty draws
international tourism not only
to Guana Cay's small cottage
tourism centre, but its reef
helps fill up hotels and homes
in places like Treasure Cay,
Hopetown and Green Turtle
Cay.

“Beyond the vital economic
importance of Guana Cay's
unique and fragile environ-
ment, is the overriding inter-
national importance of saving
these unique environments
before it is too late; before
these natural treasures are
gone forever.”

All these allegations and
concerns have consistently
been rebutted by Baker’s Bay
and its developer, San Fran-.
cisco-based Discovery Land
Company, who say they have
taken all necessary environ-
mental safeguards and advice,
and that the project will be a
‘model’ for the entire Bahamas
when it comes to sustainable,
environmentally-friendly
tourism development.

Mr Quarto, though, suggest-
ed that rather than continue
the project, a national marine
and terrestrial park should be
created in the same contested
area.

“The economic and envi-
ronmental benefits will
resound for generations,” he
said.

Backing that that letter,
Jeremy Stafford-Deitsch, of

Smart Solutions



the Shark Trust, said he fully
agreed with Mr Quarto. He
added: “The credibility of the
Commonwealth of the
Bahamas as a place of respon-
sible tourism was brought to a
very low level by the previous
government allowing foreign
developers to destroy the nat-
ural heritage of these islands.”

He called upon the new
Prime Minster to act with envi-
ronmental responsibility and
to put the needs of the
Bahamians and the country
first.

Dr Livingston Marshall,
senior vice president of envi-
ronmental and community
affairs for Discovery Land
Company, told The Tribune
that the company had no com-
ment regarding the BNT dona-
tion, saying its reasons were
made clear in the company’s
press release on the subject.

“Private islands like Musha

Mr Smith said.

“TI hope that finally Customs
are getting the message that
they don’t have to wait for indi-

against on. They should apply a
general principle in all these
cases, and respect the fact that
Freeport is a tax-free zone that

It is a tax-free zone until 2054,

Mr Smith added: “I encour-

any other attempts to limit the

WHTI for sea travel. This was
most evident this March alone,
when the Bahamas saw nearly ,
10,000 fewer Spring Break stu-
dent visitors. Those category of
traveller opted to go on a cruise,
where no passport was
required.”

The BHA is lobbying the US:

Congress to extend the WHTI
implementation date until June
2009, the same target date being
sought by the cruise ship indus-
try and land travellers, when it
introduces legislation to amend
the initiative.

The hotel industry fears that
if the latter two categories are

granted this extension, but not
air travellers, the Bahamian
hotel sector and all its support
facilities would be placed at a
further competitive disadvan-
tage.

Deadline

In urging that the WHTI
passport deadline be extended
to June 2009 for air travellers,
the BHA wrote: “Tourism is
the economic lifeblood of our
nation and responsible for 63
per cent of our country’s
employment. Eighty-five per
cent of our nearly five million
visitors per year are American.

“Of equal importance is the
fact that we are a good trading
partner. US businesses, partic-

chases of goods and services to

This, of course, is made possible
by the vibrancy of our indus-

ea LLyen

- The recent US government
decision to extend the passport
requirement for US air trav-
ellers until the end of Septem-
ber, permitting them to travel
with some other form of photo
idnetification as long as they
provided proof they had applied
for a passport, was described by
the BHA as “simply too little,
too late”.

It added: “US citizens are
unable to take full advantage
of the temporary flexibility rule
because it is taking too long for
applicants to receive a tracking
number required for proof........

“The evidence is now over-
whelmingly clear. The WHTI,
in its present form, is simply not

able to accommodate the pass-

port and traveling needs of the
American public. More time is
needed to prepare the public
and provide the support mech-
anisms necessary to process
applications in a timely man-
ner.”

The BHA told its members
that there were signs that some
members of the US Congress
supported including the
Bahamas and wider Caribbean
in the extended June 2009 dead-
line.

Members

It urged members to write to
Congressmen to influence the
outcome of any amending leg-
islation, saying that only “a
handful” had engaged in lob-
bying last autumn when the
opportunity to influence the
WHTT’s timing was still there.

“This was noted by US offi-
cials. There is a price to pay for
apathy and indifference,” the
BHA said.

industrial agreement, and look
at what the company is trying to
do now. This is not good labour
relations, and not good for
Inagua.”

With the salary issue, Mr Sey- .

mour said Morton Salt and the
union had come to a “tentative
agreement” on contingencies
the company could take in the
event that salt production was
hit by a catastrophic event, such
as a hurricane or excess rain-
fall.

The union president said it
had put forward a proposal to
Morton Salt that it would accept
a reduction in the work-week
to 32 hours, or four days, from
40 hours “in the event of a cat-
astrophic event”.

Offer

Mr Seymour said this offer
was conveyed to Morton Salt
two weeks ago, and the compa-
ny and its attorney, Oscar John-

NAD has been incorporated to manage, operate, develop and

son at Higgs & Johnson, were

supposed to come back to the
union and minister responsible
for labour, Dion Foulkes, with-
in a week.

Response

He claimed that no response
had yet been received by the
union, which is being repre-
sented by Trades Union Con-
gress (TUC) president, Obie
Ferguson. i

Mr Seymour said the union
was only waiting to hear from
Mr Bannister and executives at
Morton Salt’s Chicago-based
parent, Rohm and Haas, that
“we can get together and get
this agreement signed”.

Urging Mr Foulkes and
Prime Minister Hubert Ingra-
ham to intervene in the Mor-
ton Salt talks, Mr Seymour said
the company, which is respon-
sible for supplying electricity on
Inagua - had just raised the fuel
surcharge and electric bills.

“We are paying the highest
surcharge and light bill in the
entire Western Hemisphere,”
Mr Seymour said.

He added that the lay-offs
would have “a very, very, very
negative impact, because it will

affect all sectors of this com-
munity, all organisations in this
community, the churches, gro-
cery stores, you name it.

“We are gearing up for our
homecoming, which will be at
the end of July and early
August. The Salty Festival will
also be negatively impacted as a
result of these lay-offs Morton is
expected to implement.”

Glenn Bannister, Morton
Salt’s managing director, said
the company had called in
union leaders on Tuesday to
discuss the temporary lay-offs
with them.

Union

He added that the union had
raised several questions and
issues they wanted answers to,
which the company had asked
them to document and present
in writing so that there were no
“misunderstandings”.

Mr Bannister said Morton
Salt’s production in the
Bahamas, which was expected
to be reduced by 50 per cent to
600,000 tonnes in 2007 as a
result of the unusually heavy
rainfall, had been “outsourced”
to the company’s other sites
globally.

‘It is all for Jesus or nothing at all’

@ By CLEMENT JOHNSON

he other day I heard a story
about how a guard in charge.of

a lighthouse along a dangerous
coast was given enough oil for one
month and told to keep the light burn-
ing every night.

One day a woman asked for oil so
that her children could stay warm.
Then a farmer came. His son needed
oil for a lamp so he could read.
Another needed some for an engine.
The guard saw each as a worthy
request and gave some oil to satisfy all.
By the end of the month, the tank in
the lighthouse was dry. That night the
beacon was dark and three ships
crashed on the rocks. More than one
hundred lives were lost. The lighthouse
attendant explained what he had done
and why. But the prosecutor replied,
“You were given only one task: to keep
the light burning. Every other thing
was secondary. You have no excuse.”

Temptation is a choice between good
and evil. But perhaps more insidious
than temptation is conflict where one
must choose between two good
options. The lighthouse keeper in our






story found himself in such a conflict.
So also are the would-be disciples in
today's gospel story. in such cases the
good easily becomes the enemy of the
best. One must then say no to a good
thing in order to say yes to the one
thing necessary. Today's gospel is a
sequence of four incidents and encoun-
ters with people who could have
become followers of Jesus, but who
were held back by ulterior concerns
and motives. Each encounter high-
lights a different concern.

The first incident is the encounter
between the messengers of Jesus and

the Samaritan villagers. The concern

that holds the Samaritans back from
accepting and following Jesus is patri-
otism. Samaritans and Jews were bitter
enemies. The Samaritan villagers had
probably heard about Jesus and what
he was doing.and were interested. But
as soon as they learnt that Jesus and his
disciples were Jews and were heading
for Jerusalem, their admiration turned
into opposition.

Patriotism and devotion to the
national cause is, of course, a good
thing. But when national interest
becomes the spectacle through which



one sees all reality, including spiritual

and eternal reality, then one is in dan-

ger of losing perspective.

The second incident involves a man
who says to Jesus, “I will follow you
wherever you go.”

Jesus replies, “Foxes have holes, and
birds of the air have nests; but the Son
of Man has nowhere to lay his head,”
Luke (9:57-58. Why did Jesus say that?
Probably because he perceived that
here was a man who valued financial
independence and security. It is a good
thing to have high economic goals so
that one can provide adequately for
oneself and for those under one's care.
Yet when this stands in the way of
wholeheartedly following and render-
ing service to God, then something is
wrong.

The third incident is that of the man
who wanted first to go bury his father
before following Jesus. Burying one's
parents is part of the command to
“Honour your father and your moth-
er,” Exodus 20:12. So this is a man with
high moral principles, a man who
keeps the law and who is highly con-
cerned for his religious duties. Again
this is a very good virtue. Yet Jesus is

saying that we should not allow reli-
gious observance to immobilise us and
keep us from following Christ who is
always on the move into new territo-
ries and new challenges.

Finally there is the man who wants
to go and say farewell to his family
before following Jesus. He wants to
follow the example of Elisha (1st read-
ing) who bid his family farewell before
becoming Elijah's disciple: This man
has high social and family values. One
could only wish that all men could be
this sensitive to let their families know
their whereabouts at all times! Yet,
Before the urgent call of the kingdom
of God, social and family concerns
take a back seat. “No one who puts a
hand to the plow and looks back is fit
for the kingdom of God,” Luke 9:62.

These stories show that to follow
Christ is to follow him unconditionally.
Can you complete the sentence: “I will
follow Christ on the. condition that...”
If you can complete the sentence then
you are in the same situation as any of
these well-meaning but mistaken disci-
ples. Jesus will not accept second place
in our lives. He will be first or nothing.
It is all for Jesus or nothing at all.

n celebration of their 60th

wedding anniversary, Rev

Dr Earle Francis, senior

pastor of First Baptist
Church, and his “Sweet Potato”,
Dr Marjorie Francis, marked the
historic occasion by renewing
their wedding vows before family
and friends on Sunday at the First
Baptist Church sanctuary.

It was June 29, 1947 at 6am at
the Salem Baptist Church, then
located on Parliament Street, that
the Francis’ were first joined
together in holy matrimony by the
late Rev Enoch Beckford. This
union gave birth to 13 children;
two of whom have pre-deceased
the couple.

Anniversary

Since their SOth wedding
anniversary, the couple has held a
service each year to renew their

vows. Many other couples from —

Curry and his wife Deaconess

renew

the ministry joined them in the
commitment ceremony. Bro Garth

Berthalee Curry have joined The
Earle and Sweet Potato for the
past ten years.

Blessed

The couples were blessed with a
charge by Rev Dr Walstone
Francis, pastor of the Shiloh
Baptist Church, Waukegan
Illinois. Pastor Francis is the son
of the honourees and a product of
First Baptist Church. He delivered
the message and officiated during
this propitious event.

Thank God for the legacy of
marriage and ministry; sixty years
of marriage today and forty-three
years of ministry. According to the
diamond anniversary celebrants,
the secret to a good marriage is
communication, sharing and much
love.

Let Freedom Ring |

By DR WILLAMAE C MILLER
Child Evangelism Fellowship Bahamas

THE line “Let freedom ring” taken from the
patriotic hymn “God bless our Sunny Clime”, writ-
ten by Rev Dr Phillip Rahming is very appropriate
at this time as the Bahamas celebrates 34 years of
independence.

As we come each year to the time when we cel-
ebrate the birth of our country, independence day,
we should feel renewed faith and hope in the
future.

God has graciously protected and cared for the
Bahamas and poured out many blessings and gifts
on our country. We have a heritage that is truly
great and glorious. Therefore we must be faithful
to teach our children about the heritage of free-
dom.

Our road is smoother because others who went
before us treasured freedom and fought to pre-
serve it.

In Leviticus 25:10 we read, “Proclaim liberty
throughout all the lands unto all the inhabitants
thereof.”

Liberty

To keep our liberty we must be loyal. Are we
willing to pay the price of obedience and loyalty to
have a Christian land? If we would be free we need
to depend on God who gave us this land, who guid-
ed our forefathers in the way to make it free and
great.

Alexander Blackburn penned the poem, ‘What
Makes a Great Nation Great’:

The land’s great which knows the Lord whose

songs are guided by His word.

Where justice rules, twix man and man, where
love controls in art and plan.

Where breathing in his native air, each soul finds
joy in praise and prayer.

Thus may our country good and great, be God's
delight - man’s best estate.

Let’s thank God for the Bahamas. It isn’t a per-
fect land, and the people aren’t perfect, but the
Bahamas is a great nation and we can be proud of
it and love it.

Let’s pray for our leaders and the men and
women who defend this country. We should pray
for those who lead this great country not just on
Independence Day, but everyday.

Happy July 10
God bless the Bahamas

n order to survive, we must change. We must

release old memories, habits and other past tra-

ditions. Only freed from past burdens can we

take advantage of the present. The conundrum
here is that we do not like change. We see change as the
enemy. Humans are creatures of habit, and no matter
how destructive our habits are, we love them and we
want them and we do not want to let them go.

This is not the way it was designed to be. Life is a
process - it is a journey. That means constant change.
Really, it means the only thing we can depend on is that
things will change. That means that we have to learn to
appreciate change and to work within the flow of
change.

If we look around us at Mother Nature, we see that
nothing remains the same. Summer wanes into autumn,
which becomes winter, then blooms into spring and
waxes again into summer. The sand on the beach once
formed mountains; the water was once ice and clouds.
The trees used to be seeds. Can you imagine if Mother
Nature stubbornly held on to the status quo and resisted
change the way we do? There would be neither planet
nor any life on it. The truth is that without change, there
is no life. There is no living without this precious process
because the two are one and the same.

Rhythmic

Life is a rhythmic flow, and it serves us well to realize
this and to flow with it. Jesus, our way-shower, taught
the principle of non-resistance because he understood
that life is not stagnant - we never “arrive”; we are
always traveling on the road towards perfection.

When he spoke of turning the other cheek, he was not
referring to violence or to being passive, but he was
speaking of working with the process, of letting the |
change happen so that life could move forward more
smoothly. Things happen that we don't enjoy so much -

No turning back!

@ By FATHER JAMES MOULTRIE

No one who puts a hand to the plough and looks

back is fit for the Kingdom of God. (Luke 9:62)

his is not a political slogan. This is what
Jesus said in effect in our text as He
described those who would be His disci-
ples.

I want to share a story with you from the auto-
biography of an Irish writer named Frank
O’Conner. In his book he vividly recalls the night
that he decided to become a writer. He had lost
his job with the Great Southern Railway and had
no money. Hope was fading fast and he had no
one to turn to for help. All who knew him regard-
ed him as a mad, good-for-nothing man. He had
to make a decision about his future.

Here is what he wrote in “An Only Child”:

What mattered was the act of faith, the hope that
somehow, somewhere, I would be able to prove
that I was neither mad nor good-for-nothing;
because now I realized that whatever it might cost
me, there was no turning back. When as kids we
came to an orchard wall that seemed too high to
climb, we took off our caps and tossed them over
the wall, and then had no choice but to follow
them. I had tossed my cap over the wall of life, and
I knew I must follow it, wherever it had fallen.

MANY of us can relate to that story for we did
the same thing at Collins Wall before it was
opened up to pedestrian and vehicular traffic.
Many of us recall climbing over that high wall in
Centerville, bicycle or any other valuables in
hand, to get to the other side of town. The mission
was to get to East Street and beyond, and on top
of that wall you dared not look down or turn
back. Once up there, there was no turning back. It
was a short cut between east and west, just as the
God-forsaken wall represented the separation of
the middle class from the lower class. Thank God
that wall is no longer a barrier! But it reminds us
of the story of Jesus in the Gospel for today and
the story of Frank O’Conner that once we get to
the other side of life we are on a mission for God
and there can be no turning back.

In the Gospel for today Jesus dealt in a some-

- what similar fashion with three persons who
believed that they had what it took to be disciples.
One volunteered, and Jesus called two, but each
had an excuse. When put to the test, they failed
completely. He said to these would-be disciples,
“No one who puts a hand to the plough and looks
back is fit for the Kingdom of God”. Jesus was
highlighting the need for commitment to God,
and saying that there could be no turning back.

If you wish to plough a straight row, you must
give your undivided attention to what you are
doing. If you keep on looking back you would not
do a good job. You need dedication and commit-
ment. If you begin such a task, you should give it
your all. All of us have put our hands to some
“plough” or other: young people to their studies,
husbands and wives to their marriage, priests to
their ministry, to mention but a few. Once we put
our hands to the plough, there is no turning back.

If we keep looking back while on our mission,





@ JAMES MOULTRIE

“Remember that each
of us has but one soul.
If we had two we
could cuss some
people out and lose
one. But we have
only one soul, so we
cannot allow anyone or
anything to cause us to
be separated from the
God who calls us and
who will ultimately

grant us salvation.”
— Father James Moultrie

our attention will be divided. So too will our ener-
gy. We would not be fully committed. We will only
be half-hearted. We are likely to lose time, to lose
sight of our goal, and be tempted to turn back or
even quit altogether.

To look back suggests that we are having sec-
ond thoughts, and perhaps doubts and regrets.

Perhaps we are finding the cost too high. Maybe
other things that we thought we had given up are
still tugging at our hearts. But if we keep looking
forward, we will give our undivided attention to
the chosen task. We will be completely commit-
ted. We will be whole-hearted. That will give us
great strength and energy. All our resources will
be enlisted and harnessed to the task. We will not
easily be sidetracked. And so we have an excel-
lent chance of completing the task.

Those who are whole-hearted will find joy in
the task, despite the hardships. There is no such
joy for the half-hearted. So the message is: don’t
turn back; don’t even look back!

The first reading shows how Elisha obeyed the
call of Elijah. By throwing his cloak over him
Elijah was transferring power to Elisha (I Kings
19:19). It was a call to leadership from one great
prophet to another. Eliaha’s response was total,
and by killing his oxen and burning the plough he
was precluding a return to his old life.

In the Gospel we see the best example of Jesus
Himself being totally committed to the will of the
Father. He set His face towards Jerusalem, even
though He knew that rejection, betrayal, and
death awaited Him there. He would not be
deflected from His path. He ‘has given an example
to His followers of the kind of dedication that is
required of discipleship.

This kind of dedication is a great challenge,
especially today when there are so may distracting
voices in the marketplace. So many voices are
clamoring for our attention that it is difficult
sometimes to hear even the voice of God calling
us to discipleship. And even when we hear His
voice and we intend to follow there are so many
things competing for our attention that we get
frustrated and want to give up.

Sometimes we are frustrated by church people
who are only there to criticize rather than offer
words of encouragement. To be sure, God has
called each one of us and given us gifts to be used
in ministry, but we do not always persevere. We
need to be total in our service to God and not to
be distracted by those who seek to deter us.

Some of us Christians are easily turned off and
we allow people or things to get between us and
God. Some of us give up easily because of a com-
ment of a fellow Christian. And some people just
seem to thrive on making others who are trying. to
serve God miserable. They get right between us
and God. And when we let that happen we know
who is nearest to God! We cannot allow anyone
or anything to get between us and God and our
service to Him. God is depending on.us to be His
hands and feet in the world, and He will not
accept as an excuse that someone took our minds
off Him and his call on our lives.

Remember that each of us has but one soul. If
we had two we could cuss some people out and
lose one. But we have only one soul, so we cannot
allow anyone or anything to cause us to be sepa-
rated from the God who calls us and who will ulti-
mately grant us salvation.

May God grant you the grace to persevere in
your ministry that when this life is over God will
grant you a place in His eternal Kingdom.

Let’s identify and
talk about the poor!

@ By PASTOR MATTHEW ALLEN

Matthew 26:11 — For ye have the poor always with
you; but me ye have not always.

ingdom Minded Fellowship Centre’s

acronym for the word poor: People

Overlooking Opportunities

Repeatedly. What a profound state-
ment Yeshuwa Messiah (Jesus the Christ) made in
Matthew 26:11.

There are some persons among us that are in no
position to do for themselves as a result of some
kind of physical disability or sickness. Religion and
tradition have labeled such persons as The Poor,
but nothing could be. further from the truth. If
these persons could do anything to bring about

relief, comfort and restoration to their situation I-

have no doubt that they would do so immediately;
therefore these persons can and should not be
deemed as The Poor.

Whenever the hundreds of powerless and divid-
ed churches in this country stop competing against
one another in building their huge sanctuaries and
in having their many conferences where their reli-

-gious superstars are paid handsomely for a few
hours of religious entertainment and spiritual aero-
bics, then they might be able to hear the cries and
meet the needs of the disabled and the sick.

A united church partnering with the Red Cross,
Salvation Army, the Government and corporate
Bahamas is likened to the hand of God ministering
to the many needs of the downtrodden in our soci-
ety. In order for this to happen all of the religious
bishops, apostles and pastors would have to die to
self and let God be glorified in this work, without
their names and churches being highlighted.

Now let's identify and talk about the poor! .

For years erroneous religious teachings have
filled the hearts and minds of church folks as
they've been preached to that it was Judas Iscariot,
which stated in Matthew 26:9 that “The ointment
might have been sold for much, and given to the
poor” during the anointing of Jesus' head with the
precious ointment because he kept the money bag
or he was the treasurer. As good as this may sound
because we know of what Judas did, the bible does
not support such teaching.

Watch this!

Matthew 26:8 But when his disciples saw it, they
had indignation, saying, To what purpose is this
waste?

:9. For this ointment might have been sold for
much, and given to the poor.

Judas has been named as the one making such
statements, whereas the bible said that His disci-
ples (all of them) were responsible for the saying.

Twisted religious leaders have been emotionalis-
ing their messages to move a people in the direc-
tion they would have them to go, especially if
they're preaching on prosperity and the members



@ MATTHEW ALLEN

are sowing seeds into the man of God’s life. This
consistent ignorance of God's word has caused
many well meaning saints to live a life of poverty.

Our churches. are filled with poor saints - people
who have overlooked opportunities repeatedly -
and as a result have failed to live the abundant suc-
cessful life that Jesus gave to them. These are the
folks who claim to know the bible from cover to
cover yet they continue to live from pay-check to
pay-check. When hard times, disaster or calamity
hits, they are quick to blame any and everybody for
the situation they find themselves in; despite the
fact that they've failed to make the necessary
preparation for such hard times.

Religious church folks are some of the laziest,
ignorant. and powerless people one can ever meet
or try to do business with. A person with this kind
of mind set can never see him or herself as an
owner of anything great, but rather always as one
receiving a pay-check or hand out.

Ignorant religious people-can often be heard dis-
playing their ignorance of Jesus' teachings in John
17:1-26 as He prays for His disciples - not for His
Father to take them out of the world, but rather to

keep them from the evil that's in the world. Then
He sent them into the world to do business and to
make disciples.

It's always the poor, broke, busted and disgusted
religious Christian that misquotes this potion of
scripture, here they go; “The bible says that we
should not be of the world” as to say that they
should not be doing business with the world, how
foolish.

Watch this!

In Luke 19:13 Jesus told a parable of a nobleman
who was going away and he gave ten of his servants
a pound each and said unto them, “Occupy till I
come” or in other words “do business until I come
back”.- Obviously this business was not to be con-
ducted among themselves, they were to go into the
world's systems and do business. In reading this
article if you happen to be a religious Christian
who has been operating on erroneous teachings,
it's not too late for transformation to take place by
the renewing of your mind.

The teachers and preachers who have taught you
to think and operate the way you've been doing for
years may have been sincere, but I submit to you
that they were sincerely wrong, and that's why in
many areas of your life there has been a constant
famine.

Don't spend another year blaming, binding and
rebuking the devil when it's your ignorance to
God's word that has kept you in the same broke sit-
uation year after year.

Remember, Kingdom Minded Fellowship
Centre’s acronym for poor is - people overlooking
opportunity repeatedly. In Matthew 26:11, Jesus
did not say that you have to be one of the poor, so
stop the complaining, murmuring and blaming of
others, get over what you need too, then get up and
do something for yourself.

Your family, friends and neighbors are tired of
hearing you blaming the PLP, the FNM or some-
body else for the dumb decisions you've made and
then in some cases not having the guts and wisdom
to make an intelligent decision.

Always remember that man's extremity is God's
opportunity. In speaking to the church about wis-
dom and doing business, here's what Jesus said in
Luke 16:9 - And I say unto you, make to yourselves
friends of the mammon of unrighteousness; that,
when ye fail, they may receive you into everlasting
habitations.

You have the power to stop being POOR.

Shaping our destiny

@ By REV ANGELA PALACIOUS

s we celebrate our sta-

tus as an independent

people, we have to

count our many bless-
ings, evaluate our present status, and
determine our future course of
action. Since the true wealth of a
nation is its people, an honest assess-
ment of poverty and destitution
enables us to judge just how pros-
perous we really are.

Throughout the year, there are
weeks and months when particular
agencies or needs in the community
are highlighted in order to attract
volunteers and donations. They help
us to become more aware of areas
where change is needed. Sometimes
change is not forthcoming because
the persons concerned are quite sat-
isfied to remain just as they are. It is
we who have a problem with their
situation, not them!

Some want a better way of life but
do not know where to turn; others
know what to do but cannot be

“What is your
position in this
regard? Are you

seeking to reach out

to those in need?

Are you building a

personal kingdom or

helping to shape the
destiny of a people
by building up the
Kingdom of God?”

— Rev A B Palacious

bothered to exert the effort needed
to acquire the fruit of a disciplined
life; and quite a few like things just

the way they are, whether illegal, or
immoral, or both.

If we begin with a consideration of
our Bahamian context, we have to
asses the current trends, past tradi-
tions, and desired goals. Do we have
a unified vision for ourselves as a
people? Do we have similar ideas
about what is to be the best way for-
ward? How much influence does the
Church really have?

Who are the people who have the
real power in a country? If govern-

‘ments change with the whim of the

voters, is it possible to maintain sus-

tained long-term dreams and goals? .

Is there such a thing as a national
policy that remains in tact? Do we
need a referendum to decide our
future? Will everyone subscribe to’
any one thing? If indeed some of our
citizens are intent on destroying our
country while others are struggling
to build it, how do we protect the
rights and freedoms of individuals
while promoting the welfare of the
people as a whole?

If we return to our constitution

and we decide that certain moral
and spiritual values are foundational
principles on which to build, then we
may examine all new developments
in light of the benefit given to these
expectations. The context needs to
be understood before we seek to
bring change. Let us think about the
values that we see being eroded, and
determine how best to restore that
which is being lost, and protect that
which is endangered.

If we all agree that the need for
healthy family life is nonnegotiable,
a strong work ethic is indisputable,
and a faith-based attitude to life is
vital, then we will have to work to
educate our people to come to share
these common objectives, to mentor
them, to acquire them, and to sup-

‘ port them, to maintain them as an

ongoing reality.

What is your position in this
regard? Are you seeking to reach
out to those in need? Are you build-
ing a personal kingdom or helping to
shape the destiny of a people by
building up the Kingdom of God?

@ ARCHBISHOP GOMEZ

SIX ministers,

‘Including two

women, to be
ordained

HEAD of the Anglican Church in the
Bahamas Drexel Gomez, Archbishop of
the province of the West Indies, the
Bahamas and the Turks and Caicos
Islands, announced yesterday that the
Church is set to ordain six new minis-
ters, including two women, into the min-
istry.

e Marie Roach will be ordained to the
diaconate on Wednesday, July 11, at
7:30pm, at Christ Church Cathedral.

¢ Paulette Cartwright will be ordained
to the diaconate on Tuesday, July 17, at
7pm, at St. Paul's Church, Long Island.

The ordinations of Ms Roach and Mrs
Cartwright will bring the number of
ordained females to six, joining
Reverends Angela Palacious, Beryl
Higgs, Willish Johnson and Erma
Ambrose.

Also being ordained into the ministry
are four men.

e Reverends’ Berkley Smith,
Theadore Hunt and Ethan Ferguson
will be ordained to the priesthood on
Wednesday, July 25. The service will be
held at Christ Church | Cathedral at
7:30pm.

e Rev Tellison Glover will be
ordained to the priesthood 7 pm Sunday,
August 5, at Pro Cathedral, Christ the
King Church, Freeport, Grand Bahama.

Churches to

he Commonwealth &
Global Prayer Grotto, in
conjunction with Trinity
‘City of Praise’ Church
and other churches throughout New
Providence will host a national
Prayer and Praise Rally on Saturday,
July 7 from 6am to 9am, on the
grounds of Trinity ‘City of Praise’.

Calling it a day of divine release,
and an important bookmark in the
history of the nation and for God’s
people, host pastor Ed Watson said
the prayer and praise rally is the
result of a command from the Lord,
who is expected to release a mighty
blessing and open the doors of deliv-
erance for the people of God.

“We believe this day, 7.7.7. - is
prophetic. It is a day of release for
the people of God, for the provision
that God is releasing in this time, and
a day of healing for the nation.

“I really want to see the people’s
spirits stir, to see the spiritual life of
the nation catapult to another level
and restoration of jobs and the
opportunities the Lord plans to
release - deliverance in family life
and nation. We want to experience
change in our nation, and we believe
as we declare and decree that each
will bring particular release to the
body of Christ - also unity of the
body of Christ.”

Examining the scriptures,
Deuteronomy 15, where the Lord
calls on the Israelites to release those
who they have an odd against at the
end of every seven years, Apostle
Watson said that not only is 7.7.7. a
time of fulfillment and completion,
but, as the Lord directed the
Israelites, it is a time of forgiving and
to be forgiven.

With hundreds expected in atten-
dance joining in the prayer and
praise service, the atmosphere will
be saturated with the presence of the
Lord. Through declarations and
releasing prayer into the atmos-
phere, he said, there will be a renew-
al of the believer's spirit and it will



@ PASTOR ED WATSON
with his wife, Lee

have the effect of bringing them to a
place of acceptance in the Lord.

“This is a prophetic time. It only
comes by every 100 years and we
thank God for this release at this
time,” Apostle Watson said.

Joining Apostles Ed and Lee
Watson and the members of Trinity,
will be a number of covenant part-
ners, churches and friends, including
Bishop Ros Davis of Golden Gates
World Outreach Ministries; Bishop
Simeon Hall of New Covenant
Baptist Church; Apostle Paul Butler
of Bahamas Christian Fellowship;
Pastor Cardinal McIntosh from
Eleuthera; Prophetess Mattie
Nottage of Believer's Faith Outreach
Ministries; Rev Ivan Rolle of
Comfort House Ministries; Rev Dr
Antoine St Louis of Victory Chapel
Church of the Nazarene and
Evangelist Colamae Collymore of
Women of Influence, along with
their congregations and prayer part-
ners from throughout New
Providence.

While 7.7.7. will be a day of release
for the individual believer, Apostle
Watson said the prayer and praise
tally will also focus on areas of
national importance - for national
repentance and national salvation,

.for a release for the family, the

host national prayer and praise rally

Church, for a financial release for
the nation, for the nation’s youth, for
the nation of Haiti and other nation-
als residing in the Bahamas, and for
the blessing of the Government of
the Bahamas.

One important aspect that Apostle
Watson highlighted will be the blow-
ing of the shofar, which is a trumpet
made of a ram's horn, blown by the
ancient Hebrews during religious
ceremonies. The sound will be
released in the air and through that
sound the gathering will tap into
what God has purposed and declared
on this day. “It will bring in redeem-
ing grace, break the demonic forces.
I believe if we can get together at the
top of the hill there just might be a
release in the Bahamas.”

While the prayer and praise rally is
a one time event, Trinity also holds a
prayer and worship service every
Tuesday morning between Sam and
6am, where people can come to fol-
low up with what they need individu-
ally. The word of God is released in a
short 15 to 10 minute period and
then there is prayer time. The hour,
Apostle Watson said, gives life and
hope for the day and each week.

Preparing for this day since
October, Apostle Watson said that
this is the time for this nation.

“We encourage all citizens, both
church and non-church people, to
come and be in a position to access
this divine release. This is the year to
unlock and release God’s abundance
to the people of God. We believe
that this day and this year is a year of
definition and a defining moment for
our nation.

“People can be prepared to
embrace and receive God’s abun-
dance for their lives. And we encour-
age and ask for prayers and support
from all and sundry.”

Mr Collie emphasized that
the ministry is asking mer-

_ Prison sentence is upheld for

indecent assault during ‘sex therapy’

@ By NATARIO McKENZIE

THE Court of Appeal yes-
terday upheld a one year
prison sentence handed down
on a local “physician” for inde-
cently assaulting a. woman to
whom he had supposedly
administered sex therapy.

Dr Kevin King’s appeal
against a one year prison sen-
tence was dismissed by the
Court of Appeal yesterday.
That sentence which was over
a 2002 conviction for inde-

cently assaulting a female
patient was upheld in a judg-
ment handed down by Court
of Appeal President Dame
Joan Sawyer yesterday. It was
noted that his prison sentence
had been suspended pending
the prosecution of his direct
appeal to the Court of Appeal.
King was informed by Justice

Barbados PM: Bahamas could be integrated

into CARICOM programme rather than CSME

@ By KARIN HERIG

Tribune Staff Reporter :

INSTEAD of joining the Caribbean Single Market and Econ-
omy (CSME) the Bahamas could in future be integrated intoa
CARICOM programme that focuses more on issues such as ;

health care and education rather than on economic benefits.
CARICOM chairman, Barbados prime minister Owen Arthur,

speaking about the issue of CSME during this week’s heads of
government conference in Georgetown, expressed concern over }
the fact that some members of the Caribbean Community are not

participating in the region’s single market.

As a.solution to this concern, Mr Arthur said, he is recom-
mending “a programme of integration outside and beyond the”

mere economic sphere.”

_ the Bahamas’

| proximity to
US as tourism
advantage

THE proximity and afford-
ability of the Bahamas still
makes it.a likely tourist desti-
nation.for American visitors,
according to the Ministry of
Tourism.

This follows media reports
that the Bahamas has dropped
off a list of the top 15 countries
that Americans would choose
to vacation “if money were no
object.”

In a statement issued yester-
day, the ministry stated that
“The Bahamas’ comparative
advantage has been and
remains the country’s proximity
to the United States which
makes the islands of the
Bahamas highly accessible to
major US cities”.

This is an important factor as
this proximity makes it conve-
nient for Americans to visit the
country. The cities along the
eastern coast of the US makes
up 60-65 per cent of visitors to
the Bahamas.

These eastern cities such as

PMH announces programme to clean
up areas after publication of photos

@ By TANEKA THOMPSON

HOSPITAL officials claim
there is an “ongoing programme
for the rehabilitation of areas”
which are below standard at
Princess Margaret Hospital.

Yesterday, The Tribune was
the first to publish photos that
exposed the unsanitary and
dilapidated conditions at the
public ward of the government
funded Princess Margaret Hos-
pital (PMH).

Responding to this, hospital
officials said that it is a “very
high priority” to get conditions
at the hospital up to scratch.

Man faces
charge of
ammunition
possession

@ By DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport Reporter

FREEPORT - A male resi-
dent of Freeport was charged
with possession of ammunition
in Freeport Magistrate’s Court
on Wednesday.

Renaldo Jevan Rolle, 23, of
176 Northumberland Avenue
in North Bahamia, appeared
before Acting Deputy Chief
Magistrate Helen Jones.

It is alleged that on July 4, at
about 12.30am, the accused was
found in possession of six live
.38 bullets.

Simeon Brown represented
Rolle, who pleaded not guilty
to the charge of possession of
ammunition without lawful
authorisation. He was granted
$4,000 bail with one surety.

Magistrate Jones adjourned
the matter to March 4, 2008.

Coast Guard
still looking
for woman
missing at sea

THE US Coast Guard yes-
terday continued its search for a
42-year-old American woman
who fell of a yacht about 35
miles off of Grand Bahama.

According to authorities, the
woman — a native of Fort Laud-
erdale — went missing from the
49-foot sport fisher vessel Do
Diligence on Tuesday afternoon
when the vessel was sailing close
to the southern coast of
Freeport.

Passengers on the yacht
reportedly last saw the woman
at around 4.30pm on Tuesday.

Following the discovery, the
Do Diligence yacht contacted
a nearby boat which alerted the
Coast Guard at 6pm.

The yacht’s crew placed an
emergency beacon in the water
by the spot where the woman
might have fallen overboard.

A Coast Guard cutter and a
helicopter searched the area.

The woman was not wearing
a life jacket at the time she went
missing.

Coast Guard officials said
they will not release the name
of the woman until her family is
notified of the situation.

Administrators
attend seminar
on disaster
management

FAMILY island administra-
tors were among those who
attended a four-day seminar
aimed at strengthening the
Bahamas' disaster management
capabilities this week.

The 2007 National Disaster
Management Conference cov-
ered such topics as disaster pre-
paredness and response, shelter
operations, influenza pandem-
ic and Bahamas building codes.

It was partially funded the
United States government,
through the US Southern com-
mand.

Minister of Lands and Local
Government, Sidney Collie,
spoke at the event, representing
Prime Minister Hubert Ingra-
ham, who has ministerial tespon-
sibility for disaster management.

“Recent findings of the Inter-
governmental Panel on Climate
Change (IPCC) provide an
alarming picture for the future,”
said Mr Collie. “Temperatures
are increasing globally. If there
is indeed a link between climate
change and a rise in. weather-
related disasters, natural disas-
ters are not only here to stay,
but on the rise," he said.

FREEPORT - The Depart-
ment of Consumer Affairs in
Freeport is conducting inspec-
tions at supermarkets and con-
venience stores to ensure that
tainted toothpaste is not in cir-
culation in Grand Bahama.

Philip Stubbs, chief price
inspector in Freeport, said his
officers are out on the streets in
full force inspecting toothpaste
inventory at the major food-
stores and smaller convenience
stores throughout the island.

“We are trying as best we
can to inspect the stores, but
we will not be able to check
all of the stores in one day,”
said Mr Stubbs.

There have been concerns
that fake toothpaste is being
sold in stores in the Bahamas.
It is believed that poisonous
chemicals such as diethylene
glycol found in anti-freeze, or
harmful bacteria, are con-
tained in counterfeit colgate
toothpaste.

It has also been claimed that
a tube of toothpaste, which
bears some of the counterfeit
traits that have been identified
by Colgate-Palmolive, has sur-
faced in Nassau.

So far, none of the tainted
toothpaste has been discov-
ered on store shelves in Grand
Bahama.

Nevertheless, store owners
in Freeport are keeping a close
eye out for the fake tooth-
paste, which is believed to
have originated in China.

James Williams, manager of
the Winn Dixie Foodstore in
downtown Freeport, said Con-
sumer Affairs officials con-
tacted the store on Wednes-
day to inform them of the sit-
uation check their toothpaste
inventory.

‘We are checking our inven-

of the fake toothpaste.

“While we carry the Colgate
brand, we are pretty sure that
our toothpaste products are
safe because our suppliers are
not the same as the supplier
where the: fake versions were

distributed from,” said Mr
Williams.
Shawnya Ramsey of

Krosstown Convenience Store
said that the store has not yet
checked its inventory.

She said she heard some-
thing about the problem, but
was not sure of what to look
for when identifying the coun-
terfeit toothpaste. She was
then referred to relevant arti-
cles published in The Tribune,
which is sold at the conve
nience store.

Bird deaths ‘may be natural’

@ By TANEKA THOMPSON

NATURAL selection may

be behind mysterious bird .

deaths in Grand Bahama,
according to experts.

The Tribune reported yes-
terday that a number of mys-
terious bird deaths have
occurred off the southeastern
coast of that island in the past
few weeks.

According to David Lee, a
curator of birds at North Car-
olina State Museum of Natural
Sciences and a former biologist,
mass bird deaths are “actually a
rather well known biological
event”. And he has a few theo-

ries about the cause behind this

particular bout of bird deaths,
which is taking place off the
coast of Florida as well.

These include the theory
that adult birds may be aban-

doning their young too early,
leaving the offspring not fully
equipped for survival.

This theory purports when
there is an absence of winds
in the tropics, the inexperi-
enced young shearwater gulls
cannot fly, and because of
the “low productivity of the
oxygen starved tropical
waters” they are unable to
find food.

“By the time they make it.
into the northern hemisphere
they are starved and exhaust; ,.
ed. In these years we see high

mortality,” Mr Lee said.

He does not believe the
deaths are “disease or chemi-
cal related”, but simply attrib-
uted to nature’s principal of
“survival of the fittest”.

Director of the Ministry of
Agriculture and Fisheries, Sime-
on Pinder, told The Tribune on

Wednesday that he has “no
idea” what happened to the
great shearwaters, but revealed
that initial suspicions of bird flu
have been eliminated.

“It may take quite some
time for the best laboratories
to determine the actual cause
[of the deaths],” he added.
Until the final reports are
released from the lab in the
US, Pinder speculated that
possible toxins may be one
reason for the bird deaths.

Eric Carey, executive direc-
tor of the Bahamas National
Trust; told The Tribune on
yesterday that his organisation
is investigating the unex-
plained bird deaths, but added
that the situation is not uncom-
mon.

“We have reports that it
[mass bird deaths] occurs every
few years.” Mr Carey stated.

PLP not levelling with the public

IN A PRESS statement yesterday Tourism
Minister Neko Grant denied former transport
minister Glenys Hanna-Martin’s claim that
he was seeking “cheap political gain” for
telling the Bahamian people that the PLP gov-
ernment had known three years ago that cruise
ships would pull out of the Bahamas if Prince
George dock were not lengthened and the
harbour dredged.

Mr Grant replied that his ministry takes
“very seriously” its responsibility to the
“Bahamian public to provide information that
is truthful, complete and necessary to help
establish broad public understanding of issues
of critical national importance.”

This was something that Mrs. Martin’s gov-
ernment did not do when in 2004 it received its
first letter from Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines,
followed by a second letter in 2005, informing
it that the dredging of Nassau harbour was
“imperative” if its service was to continue to
the Bahamas. Caribbean Cruise Line told gov-
ernment that the harbour’s turning basis was
too small for its larger “Freedom Fleet” ves-
sels, which were to enter service this year.
This was the reason given for pulling four
ships from the Bahamas and transferring them
to Europe, South America and Alaska.

Mr Grant in the House, followed by Mr
Dion Foulkes in the Senate, pointed out that
not only did the PLP government not tell the
Bahamian people the difficulty the harbour
was presenting for the country’s continued
cruise business, but it did nothing to avert the
danger.

Mr Foulkes said his information was that
even if the harbour were dredged now, there
was no hope of Caribbean Cruise liners return-
ing before 2009 because all cruises were

- booked until then.

Mr Foulkes also revealed that the Cunard
company offered to dredge the harbour at its
own expense to accommodate the Queen
Mary 2, the largest passenger liner built.
Bahamians were never told of this offer, nor is
it yet known why it was not gratefully accept-
ed by the PLP government. As a consequence
the Queen Mary 2 cannot include the
Bahamas in its itinerary.

On June 25, flanked by former ministerial
colleagues and former prime minister Perry
Christie, who during his election campaign
had assured Bahamians that their tourism
industry was holding strong, Mrs Martin held
a press conference in the opposition commit-
tee room of the House of Assembly. She chas-
tised Mr Grant for either not knowing the
facts or deliberately misleading the public “for
cheap political gain.” Either way, she said, his

“assertions were false...and irresponsible.”

She regretted that Royal Caribbean had
been drawn into a “domestic political row”
by the minister whom she accused of “using it
to create political mischief, or to generate mis-
conceptions and innuendoes, or to perpetuate
dishonesty for partisan political reasons.”

After all that vitriolic hot air we thought
that if in fact Minister Grant were lying, this
was her opportunity to tell the public the truth.
Not a bit of it. All the public learned was that
the “former government” — the FNM — had
been planning and preparing for such a dredg-
ing for more than two years. If this were so,
the PLP’s inaction was even more unforgivable
— five whole years of doing nothing. Why
didn’t the PLP government execute the FNM
plans, especially as they had been warned in
writing by a major cruise company what would
happen if they didn’t?

Then there is the case of the TG Glover
school. When Public Works Minister Earl

_ Deveaux announced that construction at the

school had stopped until his government could
investigate claims that the site was contami-
nated, former works minister Bradley Roberts
lashed out. He accused the FNM government
of trying to “demonise the Christie adminis-

tration”, claiming that there was “not a shred

of evidence to support” the FNM’s “outra-
geous allegations.”

He said that the rash that workers com-
plained of was a case of “monkey tamarind”,
it had been cleared up and government should
either produce evidence that the site was con-
taminated or allow the work to continue.

It this were true, and there was nothing to
fear on the site, why would the contractor,
write to the new government a day after it
was sworn in to complain that for the previous
four months his workers had been ill. It asked
the new government to fully inspect the site
and inform his firm of its findings. Obviously
ER Hanna Construction Company was not
satisfied with Mr Roberts’ “monkey tamarind”
story.

As Mr Deveaux pointed out it would have
been irresponsible for his government to have
ignored the request, because if the site were in
fact contaminated it threatened the health of
too many Bahamian children. And so the site
was closed to await a toxicology report.

These two incidents alone are enough to
demonstrate that the Christie government was
not capable of leading this country. As one
economist remarked recently: If the Bahami-
an economy had not been so robust,
the Christie government would have wrecked
it.










Responding
to story on
catch limits

EDITOR, The Tribune.
PLEASE allow me to
respond to an article that
appeared in one of the news-
papers a couple of weeks
ago. The article stated that
“Prime Minister Hubert
Ingraham has promised to
review recently implemented
catch limits which he said are
too stringent”. It is my sin-
cere hope that the reporter
misquoted the Prime Minis-
ter. How, after two weeks in
office, would the Prime Min-
ister be able to come to this
conclusion? It is my under-
standing that scientists, Gov-
ernment technical officers
and environmental NGOs in
The Bahamas and globally

support more stringent catch

limits, such as are currently
in effect, to reduce the
tremendous threats to fish-
ery stocks in The Bahamas.

The Bahamas is the only
country in the region that
still has viable stocks of
conch, crawfish and several
other important species.
Stocks in other countries of
the region and indeed glob-
ally have crashed due to the
pressures put on them by
overfishing and pollution.
Are we going to follow the
crowd like lemmings or actu-
ally be proactive in our
approach to management of
our fishery stocks with pro-
gressive catch limits. In a
country where poaching and
pollution already threaten
species important to the eco-
nomic well-being of many
Bahamian families as well as
their health, stringent is
good.

As for the statements of
Mr Loran Pyfrom, is he a
fishery scientist? Persons go
around making these gener-
al statements with no
research, facts or authority
to back them up. There was
a problem with the old rules,
they were too liberal. Allow-
ing foreign yachters to come
in and take the large quanti-
ties that they could under
the previous rules is UNAC-
CEPTABLE.

If there is a problem with
enforcement, then let's
address the problem and
give the Department of
Marine Resources and the

Royal Bahamas Defence

Force the manpower and
tools to enforce the law. It is
pointless, absolutely point-

“less, to enact laws and regu-

that special PROM DRESS?

lations if we are not going
to put in place the mecha-
nisms for them to .be
enforced.

Let’s just do the math. Ifa
sportfishing vessel comes to
The Bahamas with four men
on board, under the old rules
they could each catch six

crawfish, 20 pounds of '

groupers, snappers and the
like and six dolphin, tuna
and the like as well as conch.
For that one boat, that trans-
lates into 24 crawfish, 80
pounds of grouper and snap-
per, 24 dolphin and tuna as
well as conch. Let's just esti-
mate that we have 500 ves-
sels in The Bahamas every
year. If you multiply those
figures by 500, we lose
12,000 crawfish, 40,000
pounds of grouper and snap-
per, 12,000 dolphin and tuna
and only God knows how
much conch on an annual
basis.

Now one may argue there
is no way they take that
much, but the fact is with the
old rules, they can take that
much because the law allows
them to. With the new rules
the number is reduced to
3,000 crawfish, 10,000
pounds of grouper and snap-
per, 3,000 dolphin and tuna

and no conch. When you:

look at the figures, which
would Bahamians be more
comfortable with? We know
what the foreign sportfish-
ermen are comfortable with.

Mr Pyfrom and his col-
leagues are to be lauded for
raising monies to assist BAS-
RA, but he and many
Bahamians need to stop
being short-sighted. If there
are no fish to catch in 15 to
20 years, there will be NO
sportfishing tournaments
because these “frustrated”
foreign sportfishermen will
take their boats and their
huge disposable incomes
elsewhere.

When are we going to stop
putting our personal bene-
fits before the benefits of
this nation? Too many of us
are selfish in the way we
operate, unwilling to sacri-
fice for the common good.
We fail to recognise that
when we gain in the short

term for selfish reasons, it
comes back to haunt us and
we all suffer in the years to
come. .

When are we going to stop
bending the rules because a
white foreigner complains?
They complained about the
yachting fees. They are still
coming. They will complain

about the catch limits, but

they will still come. Why?
Because there is nowhere
else to go. Everywhere else
in this region remotely close
to where they live has poor
or collapsed fishery stocks.
When are we going to
realise that what we have is
priceless? We can develop
this country in the best inter-
est of Bahamian people and
Bahamian natural resources
because the unique qualities

’ and healthy systems that

exist here are unparalleled
anywhere else. But we have.
to keep it that way. We have
to protect them. We cannot
expect foreigners to look out
for our best interest. We
have to look out for our own
and stop cowtowing to every
complaint.

And while I may under-
stand the Prime Minister’s
zeal to correct any wrongs
that may have been done by
the previous administration,
that shouldn't mean doing
away with everything they
put in place, especially deci-
sions that are good for this
country — like more strin-
gent catch limits:

So I sincerely hope that
the Prime Minister, Mr
Pyfrom, Mr Cartwright and
all those thinking the limits
should be changed to
research the effort that went
behind establishing those
regulations, to understand
the tremendous long-term
benefits such limits will have
for Bahamian fishery stocks
and to make a wise decision
in consultation with appro-
priate experts.

The Bahamian people are
watching and listening and
we will not tolerate a deci-
sion that jeopardises our
well-being and that of our
children to assuage “frus- |
trated” sportfishermen who
represent a miniscule per-
centage of the interest in this
matter.

Silence on housing probe

@ By ALISON LOWE
Tribune Staff Reporter

A WALL of silence has
descended over the investiga-
tion into allegations of corrup-
tion at the Ministry of Housing
which began in November last
year.

Yesterday, Assistant Com-
missioner Ellison Greenslade
uncharacteristically refused to
comment on the investigation's
status, or elaborate on why that
might be.

Where usually Mr
Greenslade has either com-
mented, stated that investiga-
tions are too sensitive to remark
upon, or admitted that he is not

. fully aware of the details of a

situation and referred The Tri-
bune to other police officers
who may be more up to speed,
yesterday Mr Greenslade sim-
ply said "no comment."

"T can't comment on it, I'm
very sorry, I can't say anything

_ on that at the moment," he said.
When asked to explain why:

that is the case, considering his
usual method of handling
inquiries, Mr Greenslade con-
tinued: "No no, I just have no
comment at the moment. "

Pushed on whether this was
because there were no new
developments, he added: "No,
with the greatest respect I just
have no comment. I don't know
what else to say, I just have no
comment."

This follows statements made
at a conference in April, short-
ly after Mr Greenslade took on
the crime portfolio, in which he
said that he hoped to "respond
very soon" to queries as to the
outcome of the Ministry of
Housing investigation.

"IT will be looking at that file
today and certainly will be dis-
cussing it with detectives at the
top end," he said at that time.

Yesterday, Commissioner of
Police Paul Farquharson also
declined to speak with The Tri-
bune about the matter, refer-

New minister pledges to pursue matter



bune of corruption amongst
ministry staff — in the form of
bribes and extortion, and ille-
gality in the contract distribu-
tion process — has said that he
was disappointed in the appar-
ent lack of action by police as a
consequence of the then six
month old investigation.

He said in April: “To see
what the law in our country has

to be properly dealt with.

Yesterday, the new minister
of housing Kenneth Russell —
who has fired some ministry
employees for being “unquali-
fied” since taking office — said he
has not yet received the police
report on the now eight-month-
old investigation, and has had
no communications with the
police about the matter.

"Now you've reminded me,
I'll find out," said Mr Russell.

The police investigation
began after The Tribune print-
ed reports based on allegations
by contractors of bribery, extor-
tion and favouritism — commit-
ted to the detriment of contrac-
tors, homeowners and the pub-
lic purse — at the hands of hous-

come down to — I disapprove,
it's distasteful, it's just not fair.
And, yes, I am a bit disappoint-
ed in that area.”

He suggested that police offi-
cers may have had "good inten-
tions" in carrying out the inves-
tigation, but ultimately were
scuppered in taking the investi-
gation to its conclusion under
the weight of political influence.
Consequently, he said he felt
that a change of government

Scholarship at
COB funded
by institute of
accountants

Bright and highly motivated
accounting majors in the Col-
lege of the Bahamas School
of Business can look forward
to financial assistance over the
next five years, courtesy of an
annual $10,000 scholarship
award donated by the
Bahamas Institute of Char-
tered Accountants (BICA).

The award will fund two
outstanding students in their
third or fourth year of study
and is named “The BICA
Scholarship of Excellence”.

The first recipient is D’An-
dra Letitia Greenslade who is
about to enter her third year.
A graduate of Bahamas Acad-
emy, Miss Greenslade holds
eight BGCSE passes and has
been on the President’s List,
an honours list which requires
a GPA of above 3.5, since she
enrolled at the college.

Kendrick Christie, presi-
dent of BICA, expressed the
institute’s pleasure in donat-

ing the scholarship and his
desire to assist the college in
its endeavours to contribute
to the world of accounting in
the Bahamas.

Mary Russell, assistant
director of financial aid at the
college, said how happy she
was that the institute had
decided to make this gener-
ous donation.

Chair of the School of Busi-
ness at the college, Remelda
Moxey, said how gratifying it
was to see college alumni so
tangibly involved in giving
back to their alma mater.

Lawrence Lewis, a council
member of BICA; Theofanis
Cochinamogulos, the secre-
tary of BICA and Kendrick
Christie, president of the
BICA, all studied at the col-
lege on their way to accoun-
tancy qualifications.

Earlier this year BICA also
donated a $500 book award
to a student in accounting.

Taiwan’s VP
launches
tour of Latin
American

@ DOMINICAN REPUBLIC
Santo Domingo

TAIWAN’S vice president
kicked off a Latin American
tour Wednesday in the Domini-
can Republic, an ally rapidly
increasing its economic and
political ties with the island’s
diplomatic rival, China, accord-
ing to Associated Press.

Vice President Annette Lu’s
three-country trip aims to
counter a Chinese push that

’ bore fruit last month in Costa

Rica, where the government
announced it was switching its
diplomatic recognition to Bei-
jing in hopes of attracting more
trade with China.

Taiwan and communist China
split amid civil war in 1949. Chi-
na refuses to havé diplomatic
ties with nations that recognise
Taiwan, which Beijing regards
as a renegade province it plans
to eventually unify with the
mainland.

Costa Rica’s defection left
Taiwan with only 24 diplomatic
partners — many of them poor
countries in Latin America and
the Caribbean.

China has also been courting
Latin American leaders in a bid
to win their support and weak-
en Taiwan’s claims of interna-
tional legitimacy.

The Dominican Republic has
been playing both sides of the
political divide, developing
extensive ties with Taiwan and
China without making any long-

Cable Bahamas apologises

over fault in e-mail service

CABLE Bahamas
announced yesterday that its
e-mail systems are undergoing
maintenance to correct a fault
that has impacted e-mail ser-
vice delivery to subscribers in
the past few weeks.

This work is taking place at
the same time as a $1.5 million
upgrade to its core Internet
network, which is expected to
be completed in the fall, and
the Internet speed increase
operation completed two
weeks ago.

The company said these pro-
jects are part of an ongoing
effort to enhance the experi-
ence of its CoralWave sub-
scriber base.

“We would like to apologise
for the level of service being
experienced with the Coral-
Wave mail servers over the.
past few weeks and want to
assure our loyal CoralWave
subscribers we are doing
everything possible to bring
this to a final resolution,” said

André Foster, vice~ aero ee i

of Internet ‘technologyat
Cable’ Bahamas. “Cable

Mahogany.

Bahamas is proud of its net-
work and the level of service
we provide to our subscribers
but there is no question that
this is not the quality of ser-
vice our subscribers have come
to trust and we are making
every effort to rectify it in
short order.”

“With the rapid growth of
our CoralWave Internet sub-
scriber base, our mail systems
have been significantly impact-
ed,” said Ayodele Williams,
manager of applications and
development.

Servers

“The most recent fault which
impacted the e-mail retrieval
service known as POP3, has
resulted in its intermittent
availability on the mail system
and has had notable perfor-

mance faults on one of our °

mail servers.
“We have been working
very closely with the key soft-

, Wate vendors to diagnose and .

to improve overall perfor-
mance and service availabili-
ty.”

In an effort to further sta-
bilise the service, Cable
Bahamas will be performing
maintenance on the mail sys-
tem starting at 2am from July 3
through July 8. The nightly
maintenance involves contin-
ued software upgrades as well
as migrating user mailboxes.

“During these software
upgrades, subscribers will
unfortunately have issues
retrieving mail from our e-mail
servers from time to time,”
said Mr Foster, “but we are
working to keep interruptions
to the bare minimum.”

owned by 2,400 Bahamians

AN international organisa-
tion is doing research in the
Caribbean which may bring
descendents of slaves closer to
being compensated for the trau-
ma and indignity their ances-
tors suffered, according to the
BBC.

The Global Afrikan Congress
—a charity which represents the
interests of people from the
African diaspora — is seeking to
establish which British compa-
nies were operating in the
region during the slave trade,
and therefore benefited from it,
and what became of them fol-
lowing its abolition 200 years
ago.

After the abolition, many
companies received financial
compensation for their loss of
earnings from the British gov-
ernment, while slaves and their

descendents have so far
received nothing.
The GAC hopes their

detailed investigations will ulti-
mately expose which companies

profited from the trade and help

the organisation in putting a

case to the British government
that reparations should be paid
to the descendants of slaves still
alive today.

The GAC intends to discuss
the issue with Caribbean gov-
ernment leaders and other
international NGOs before tak-
ing the case for reparations to
the new British Prime Minister,
Gordon Brown, said the BBC.

Cikia Thompson, chair of the
organisation said: "The fami-
lies, companies and govern-
ments which were involved in
the slave trade should be held
responsible.

"All African people through-
out the world including those
in the Americas whose ances-
tors were victims of this crime
against humanity should be paid
compensation."

Robert Beckford, a reader in
theology at Oxford Brookes
University in the UK, told BBC
Caribbean he welcomed the
move.

The roots of out glorious |
parliamentary democracy

HOSE who
had the time

to watch on television
last week the transi-
tion of power from
one prime minister to
another in Britain
would have been
greatly rewarded by
the experience.

It was instructive to
watch this seamless
process in one of the
world’s great democ-
racies and the former
imperial power from
which we inherited
our system of parlia-
mentary democracy.

Among those coun-
tries in the world that
can be described as
democracies, about 60
have chosen to be par-
liamentary democra-
cies with Iceland being
the oldest and India
the biggest. Some are
unicameral.

Nearly all of the for-
mer colonial territo-
ries in the Caribbean
chose to be parlia-
mentary democracies,
including Trinidad
and Tobago and
Dominica which are
republics. Guyana is
the exception.

There is obviously a
consensus among them
that this system is to
be preferred over the
presidential republic in which
great power is vested in a direct-
ly-elected head of government
who is also head of state.

he United States is per-

haps the best example
of a successful presidential
republic, but in Latin America,
Africa and Asia the presiden-
tial republic has too often been
synonymous with dictatorship.

A few democracies have a
hybrid system in which there
are elements of both the presi-
dential and parliamentary mod-
els.

France adopted such a hybrid
system after a proliferation of

political parties and consequent.

instability brought about the
collapse of the post-war Fourth
Republic. Charles de Gaulle
wrote the constitution for the
Fifth Republic and became its
first president.

The British system, common-
ly referred to as Westminster
because of the palace in which
both houses of parliament meet,
evolved out of many centuries
of sometime violent struggle
between the monarchy, the
nobility and the commoners.

The British are still trying to
come to terms with the vestiges
of hereditary political office as
represented in the House of
Lords. The genius of the sys-
tem lies in its flexibility and
powerful conventions together
with the marriage of two oppos-

ing political ideas, hereditary

and elected office.

The hereditary monarch no
longer has power in Britain but
is still the symbol of national sta-
bility and unity in what is a very
healthy modern democracy.

The monarch’s discretion in
appointing prime ministers has
all but disappeared as the major
political parties have now devel-
oped rules for the selection of
their leaders.

The monarch is still supposed
“to advise, to warn, to guide”
prime ministers but, as com-
mentators pointed out last
week, it is not likely that a very
young Queen Elizabeth II had
any words of advice for the old
war horse she met in office.

More likely Sir Winston
Churchill lectured her on what
was expected of a British
monarch. Counting from Sir
Winston, Gordon Brown last
week became the eleventh

pu R



that they had an arrangement
between them that one would
succeed the other as prime min-
ister of Britain.

Both were powerful figures
in the Labour Party and Mr
Brown served throughout as Mr
Blair’s Chancellor of the Exche-

quer. Some say only half jok-~

ing that Mr Brown never
showed the Prime Minster his



The new
administration
has a lot on its

plate but it is

important to
start planning
now to provide
a suitable
home for our
parliamentary
institutions.



budget in advance of presenta-
tion to parliament.

Mr Blair gets the credit for build-
ing on the work of Neil Kinnock
and making the Labour Party elec-
table again. He led his party to an
unprecedented three straight vic-
tories at the polls.

His popularity waned
considerably in the last
few years because of the
Iraq war but his Conser-
vative opponents were
unable to exploit this
because they supported
Britain’s participation in
the invasion of Iraq.

as if Mr Blair was reluc-
tant to honour his deal
with his friend and rival
Gordon Brown but no
doubt pressure from
within the party because
of the Iraq war finally
led him to step down.

W hat is inter-
esting is that

this is not the way prime
ministers as a rule make
their exits. Some go
- when their party is
defeated in an election
and others go when they
are chased out of office
by their colleagues, as
was Margaret Thatcher.

In any event, the days

of mounting insurrec-
tions and shedding
blood in order to
achieve political office
seem long gone in
Britain. Mr Blair left 10
Downing Street, and
went to Buckingham
Palace to inform the
‘Queen he was stepping
down.

An hour later he was
followed by Mr Brown who
went to the palace to get his
mandate from the Queen to
form a new government. Then
he went back to Number 10 as
Britain’s new prime minister.
The whole thing was smooth as
silk and elegant as a ballet.

This is the glorious tradition
of parliamentary democracy
that we share with Britain and
most of the world’s democra-
cies. Unlike Britain, we have a
codified constitution but we still
have many of the conventions
that are so important to the suc-
cessful operation of the system.

‘[ great challenge for
Bahamians is that we
continue to honour these con-
ventions. It was not at all certain
in 1972 that we could exercise
the restraint and good judgment
that was necessary in the office
of a political attorney general
with ultimate power over pros-
ecutions.

The alternative was a consti-
tutional director of prosecu-
tions. It was Loftus Roker who
convincingly made the argu-
ment that Bahamians had
assimilated the conventions and
that a Bahamian attorney gen-
eral could be trusted just as well
as a British one not to abuse
this power.

We are not out of the woods
yet, as was demonstrated by the
former administration when so
many conventions were disre-
garded, and also by post-elec-

A WAR otf words has erupt-
ed between Minister of Tourism
Neko Grant and former Minis-
ter of Transport and Aviation

. Glenys Hanna-Martin over the

issue of Royal Caribbean Cruise

_ Line's decision not to include

Nassau on its list of destinations
for its new fleet.

~- Last month;Mrs Hanna-Mar-
tin accused Mr Grant of "seek-
ing to obtain cheap political
gain at national expense" for
comments in which he stated
that the PLP government had
known since 2004 that the cruise

line would not be able to dock ’

any of the ships of its "Freedom
Fleet" in Nassau harbour, due
to size restrictions. "No changes
were made, and ‘Royal
Caribbean had no choice but to
plan alternate destinations for
their vessels," said Mr Grant at
the time.

Mrs Hanna-Martin conse-
quently accused Mr Grant of
unfortunately having "drawn
Royal Caribbean into a domes-
tic political row," and of using
the cruise line, which has a long
history in the Bahamas, "to cre-

However, Mr Grant in a press

labelling her "reckless and irre-

ously our responsibility to the
Bahamian public to provide
information that is truthful,
complete and necessary to help
establish broad public under-
standing of issues of critical
national importance.
“Tourism is our country’s
number one industry. It impacts
every sector of our economy
and the information disclosed

’ by my ministry are irrefutable

facts, which we stand by
unequivocally," he said.

He added that his ministry's
position “is that if something
has the potential or is expected
to impact our country’s most

‘important industry to any sig-

nificant degree, then the
Bahamian people have a right
to be apprised, and to be, fur-
ther guided as to what their: duly
elected government intends to
do about it,” he statéd.

The minister claimed that the
facts speak for themselves in

the matter, and accused Mrs-

Hanna-Martin of simply trying
to "save face" over the issue.

"The fact of the matter is,
that more than two years ago
the former government was
made well aware, that unless
the then reconimended changes
were made to Nassau’s harbour
we would suffer very specific
losses. We are now today faced
with those losses and the chal-
lenge of how do we recoup
nearly six per cent of our cruise
arrivals, which corresponds to
more than $9 million of the
business annually.

“I simply cannot imagine how
anyone would suggest that
those losses are somehow par-
tisan losses, when clearly the
entire Bahamas and our nation-
al economy is affected,” Mr
Grant said.

the large number of visitors
from these areas who often plan
annual trips to the islands.

For Americans to visit other
countries on the list, such as
Europe, Asia, and Australia,
they need to allocate a consid-
erably longer period of time just
for travel purposes alone. Con-
sequently, persons will spend a
longer period of time in the
country if they visit the Bahamas
rather than international desti-
nations further away.

Convenience is also linked to
ihe affordability of visiting the
Bahamas versus the other inter-
national destinations. The
amount spent on airfare tends to
be one of the more expensive
costs when planning a vacation.
The Ministry has said the often
discounted airlift to the
Bahamas combined with the
accessibility of the islands has
allowed the country to capitalize
their advantages.

One tourism official explained
that “the four-day holiday 1s dis-
tinct from the extended trip
across the world.” Not only
does travelling time create an
obstacle for these trips, but the
cost alone prohibits the average
American from making -these

trips to countries in Europe or

to Australia.

Therefore the public ts
reminded to take into consider-
ation that the Harris survey,
which takes costs out of the
equation when surveying per-
sons, gets results of places per-

sons may not choose in reality.
The Ministry believes that this
may contribute to the reason
the Bahamas was not in the top
15 of the survey.

The Ministry suggests that if
“you compare the islands of the
Bahamas with those high ranked
destinations in the Harris sur-
vey, on the basis of which desti-
nations persons are more likely
to travel to more than once ina
given year, the islands of the
Bahamas would likely out rank
most if not all of them given our
location and other natural
assets.”

It is also suggested that
“Egypt and China, the two
countries replacing the Bahamas
and Jamaica in the top 16, are
certainly emerging markets that
have piqued the interests of
travellers worldwide. They con-
stitute what one might consider
part of the emerging less tradi-
tional element of the global trav-
él market, and are increasingly
considered more exotic, than a
Caribbean which arguably has
grown more familiar.” This
familiarity can be proven if one
notices the increasing interest
in the Bahamas as a second
home.

The Ministry states “that if
such factors are taken into con-
sideration and the element of
what it costs to get to destina-
tions like those is removed, the
attractiveness of these same des-
tinations then is raised substan-
tially.

“But all of that notwithstand-
ing, it is certainly our practice
to monitor exercises such as
these because they do provide
very useful insight into trends
in the travel market,” the
tourism official emph-
asised.

“Product and product devel-

opment remains a top priority of
the Ministry of Tourism and
Aviation, and the industry’s abil-
ity to be consistently responsive
to what our country’s own
research is telling us about the
needs and concerns of our
guests is critical.

“The Ministry remains vigi-

THE TRIBUNE

VACANCY NOTICE

Prison sentence
is upheld for
aes assault
FROM page one

Sawyer referred to the evi-
dence on which King had
been convicted. According
to that evidence, the com-
plainant was a married
woman who had had a hys-
terectomy and while her sur-
gical wounds had apparently
healed, she had developed
keloids which caused her to
experience considerable
pain.

After discussing her prob-
lems with a female friend,
she decided to consult Dr
King who describes himself
asa doctor although he has
had no medical training
whatsoever and is not a reg-
istered medical practitioner
under the laws of the
Bahamas, Justice Sawyer
noted. She further noted
that King apparently deals
with natural medicines and is
a “sex therapist,” which she
understood to mean that he
used various methods to
help persons improve their
libido.

. «On the complainant’s first
visit to Dr King’s office, the
two had a discussion about
her problem and on her sec-
ond visit she told the doctor
that she needed medication
for keloids. The doctor told
her that he would stop by
her house and bring her

some. He went to her house .

later with his bag and sug-
gested that since he had time
to spare, they should do a
“treatment.”

The woman, according to
‘hér evidence reluctantly
went into her bedroom and
Yay on the bed but accord-
‘ing to the doctor’s evidence
she had done so willingly.
There, the doctor asked for a

Claim that greed played
part in new straw
market price increase

wise, I over and repeatedly said
that you cannot build that build-
ing with that amount of mon-
ey,” Mr Foster said.

The straw market that
went out to tender, he said,
went out for $100 per square
foot which was a remarkable
price.

“Everybody Eros that an
architect is paid on the bases
on the percentage of the build-
ing agreed by contract. Maybe
he has a problem with a black
man making money. Maybe he
would like to determine what
my value was and that is what is
wrong with our society today.
Had it been one of the fair
skinned architects it would be
okay to charge 14 per cent, 15
per cent, it’s okay, but it’s not
okay for a little black architect
like me to charge six per cent,”
he said.

The former minister said that
one of the problems he had with
regard to the price tag of the
straw market centres around
greed.

“The problem we have with
this straw market from the
beginning was greed and that
played a great part as to why
the straw market is at the price
where it is today and it bothers
me greatly as a Bahamian. The
cost was prohibitive. Midway
through some things went down
that caused the price to sky-
rocket.

“The final edifice I saw was
some three stories. The reason
why we went to two stories was
you did not have sufficient
space on the ground for these
stores. A design was in there
for a restaurant/nightclub over-
looking the waterfront so we

could induce the foreigners and
locals alike to migrate to the
second floor. We also had
decided to put some stores on
the second floor on the Bay
Street side so that we could
attract people to go to the sec-
ond floor so that those on the
first floor would not have a dis-
tinct advantage over those on
the second floor. I agree that a
cost in excess of $20 million is
more than excessive for the con-
struction of a straw market.
Three floors was putting a lot of
money on the overall cost which
was not necessary,” Mr Miller
said.

Mr Miller said that Mr Foster
submitted his renderings for the
straw market and it was a three-
story structure even though his
ministry specifically said that it
could only be a two- story build-
ing from the studies that were
done.

“Tt was nonsensical to go with
a three-story or four-story struc-
ture. From the beginning the
straw vendors were complain-
ing from the first straw market
that the problem that they had
was people not wanting to go

one or two floors above the |

ground floor to purchase any
straw goods.

“That same committee decid-
ed that the group that was put
together would be responsible
for the interior designs of the
straw market so that the flow
would be beneficial to the straw
vendors appreciating that there
were some 600 straw vendors
that we had to put in there. I
then took a team of persons
from my ministry to China. We
gathered all the information
that was necessary for the kind
of conduits we were going to
have for them to display their
items,” he said.

said Wednesday, according to Associated Press.

The electric grid still relies too heavily on
wasteful gas-flare reactors and heavy polluting
diesel generators, but the communist govern-
ment has taken important steps toward devel-
oping wind and solar power, as well as ethanol
from sugar cane, said Achim Steiner, the pro-
gram's executive director.

"Cuba a few years ago was facing a real ener-

gy crisis, 16 hours of ... electricity cuts and
therefore a realization that the economy was
going to collapse under this system," said Stein-
er, in Havana for a conference on the envi-
ronment and development.

"In terms of a short term response, it is quite
remarkable how Cuba, under its economic con-
ditions, managed to solve that crisis," he said.

At a news conference, Steiner said "Cuba
can look proudly at having solved a short-term
crisis with a long-term commitment toward
cleaner energy." He said his organization want-
ed to "put a spotlight on Cuba's efforts."

Just three years ago, the country was hit by
blackouts that wounded the economy while
enraging a population suffering through the
merciless summer months without air condi-
tioning, fans or any way to refrigerate food.

The government's response was a sweeping
"energy revolution" that included an overall of
the antiquated electrical grid, as well conser-
vation drives.

Fidel Castro appeared on television nearly
daily to explain improvements in excruciating
detail and government workers went door to
door in many neighborhoods, replacing incan-
descent light bulbs with more- sCusGent alter-
natives.

Steiner praised the energy eeuitees but
noted that things were far from ideal. A gas
reactor throws a plume of dark smoke over
Havana's otherwise idyllic bay and. most vehi-
cles here use leaded gasoline and diesel that fill
the air with pollutants.

Meanwhile, Cuba's economy has recovered
well after the 1991 collapse of the Soviet Union
cost Havana billions in generous subsidies. But
that recovery has largely been fueled by oil-rich

~The US ambassador to
Venezuela ends term

regretting lack of dialogue

with Chavez government.

@ CARACAS, Venezuela

AFTER three rocky years
as Washington's top envoy to
Venezuela, Ambassador
William Brownfield ended his
term Wednesday with regrets
he could not do more to
establish a dialogue with Pres-
ident Hugo Chavez's govern-

ment, according to Associated

Press.

Brownfield, who is taking.

Over as ambassador to
Colombia, attended a flag-
raising ceremony at the US.
Embassy in Caracas as he pre-
pared to depart.

"IT regret that I haven't
managed to establish a direct,
serious, pragmatic dialogue
between the two. govern-
ments, a dialogue to resolve
problems that involve both
countries, like drugs, terror-
ism, international crime,"
Brownfield told reporters
Tuesday.

Brownfield took over as
ambassador to Caracas in
August 2004, and his tenure
was marked by growing hos-
tility between the two gov-
ernments. On at least two
occasions, Chavez threatened
to expel Brownfield, ‘accusing
him of meddling in Venezue-
la's affairs.

A career diplomat from
Texas with a penchant for
understatement that at times
verged on sarcasm, Brown-
field drew Chavez's anger by
voicing Washington's con-
cerns about the Venezuelan
government and handing out



CBs Sahin Aiea ene 1S gh wih bd raga aa os hent oo

donations to youth baseball
leagues and charities in pro-
Chavez slums.

Chavez first threatened to
expel Brownfield last year
after accusing him of provok-
ing a confrontation by visit-
ing a poor pro-government
area where protesters beat on
the ambassador's car, hurled
eggs and chased his convoy.

Brownfield often responded °

to Chavéz by saying he hoped
the two countries could find
common ground in areas of
mutual interest.

He said more work is need-
ed on counterterrorism and
counter-drug cooperation —

both of which Washington:

says have been severely defi-
cient under Chavez.

Asked about Chavez's
recent spate of arms purchas-
es, Brownfield said it's impor-
tant for Venezuela to be open
about those deals to avoid
"the domino effect producing
a weapons race" in the region.

"IT believe the solution is

transparency," he said.

Venezuela has already
bought about US$3 billion
worth of arms from Russia,
including 53 military heli-
copters, 100,000 Kalashnikov
rifles, and 24 SU-30 Sukhoi
fighter jets. Chavez says he is
also. considering buying Russ-
ian submarines.

"If the only reason to buy
submarines is to protect
against an attack by the Unit-
ed States, the purchase isn't
necessary because the Unit-
ed States never has attacked,

‘eh aye

is not attacking and will never
attack Venezuela," Brown-
field was quoted as saying in
the Venezuelan newspaper El
Universal.

He spoke at the embassy
Tuesday before an Indepen-
dence Day fireworks display.
Chaiting with visitors, he
wore a T-shirt poking fun at a
popular pro-Chavez rally
chant with the spoof slogan
suggesting some relief at his
departure. It read: "Uh! Ah!
Brownfield IS going away!"

Brownfield is being
replaced by Patrick Duddy, a
senior official in the State

Department's Latin America.

bureau.

In an interview with El Uni-
versal published Sunday,
Brownfield noted that. even
during the Cold War, the U.S.
and Soviet Union maintained
communication "to resolve
concrete issues."

"And that should be possi-
ble here, too. I hope my suc-
cessor has more success," he
said.

Encounters’ dolphins — looking
on adoringly.

“From the beginning we
knew that we wanted dolphins
to be a part of our wedding. It
was just a matter of finding the
perfect place to do it. We
looked everywhere. We
searched the Internet for so
many places. Then we found
Dolphin Encounters and it was
just perfect — everything we
wanted,” said Mrs Both.

The couple flew over 5,000
miles from the Netherlands to
exchange vows in the Bahamas,
leaving family and friends
behind as they escaped to par-
adise.

“Many people may think it
strange to get married with dol-
phins, but the truth is dolphin
weddings are what anyone
would wish for their day- it is







special, beautiful, meaningful,
at times tearfully joyful and
always, always fun,” said Latoya

white decorations. As they
descended in the water and
began the ceremony, Jake (one
of the male dolphins) brought
their wedding bands over as
they silently exchanged vows.
After the minister pronounced
the couple man and wife, the
pair and the dolphins kissed in
unison.

Over the years, Dolphin
Encounters has helped couples
make their dreams come true
by arranging their weddings in
paradise.

Wedding packages include
the service of a minister, deco-
rations on the island and on
platforms, catering, a wedding
cake, champagne and profes-
sional photos and video.

Unlike traditional weddings,
dolphin weddings require a few
unique changes. For example,
florists must provide bouquets
that are capable of being taken
into the water and sometimes
carried by a dolphin, rings must
be placed in a waterproof, float-
able box (provided by Dolphin
Encounters), and there are
times when the officiating min-
ister is required to perform the
ceremony in the water along-
side the dolphins.

Reverend Dr Jackson Miller
of Unforgettable Bahamas
Weddings has married hun-
dreds of couples on Blue
Lagoon Island.

He said the fact that the wed-
ding is performed alongside dol-
phins does not take away from
the beauty and seriousness of
the union.

“T myself hope to get married
here on Blue Lagoon Island one
day. It’s truly a wonderful expe-
rience. I wish I could sit here
and do this all day and marry
couples. Being here reminds me
of how I imagine heaven is. It’s
just a peaceful, beautiful, calm
paradise,” he said.

‘Deacon Camarie Curties;
_ who assisted Dr Miller in per-

forming the wedding, said:
“Weddings here are just as spe-
cial if not more so. It’s so inti-
mate and private, and hassle-
free. You can’t beat that.”
After their swim programme,
the newly married couple
changed into their traditional
wedding attire and Mr Both





- reflected on his marriage to his: ~- ~~

new bride.

“This feels so incredibly good
right now. I feel like I’m dream-
ing. I’m in paradise with my
new beautiful bride. It doesn’t
get better than this. Yesterday
morning I was calling her Ms .
Klein and today I’m calling her
Mrs Both. I’m looking forward
to our lives together,” he said.

Jet carrying space shuttle Atlantis
lands at Florida’s Cape Canaveral

.°.° ML CAPE CANAVERAL,

Florida

A JUMBO jet carrying the
space shuttle Atlantis landed
Tuesday at Kennedy Space
Center after a trip that began
in California, according to
Associated Press.

A modified Boeing 747 with
the shuttle mounted on its
back touched down on the
shuttle landing strip around
8:25 a.m. EDT (1225 GMT)
after taking off from a refuel-
ing stop in Kentucky.

The jet made several stops
on its cross-country trip. On
Monday, it landed in Fort
Campbell, Kentucky, after
stops at Offutt Air Force Base
in Nebraska and Amarillo,
Texas.

Atlantis, carrying seven
astronauts, landed June 22 at
Edwards Air Force Base in
California after a 14-day con-
struction mission at the inter-
national space station.

Bad weather at the Florida
launch site forced NASA to
divert to the shuttle's alter-
nate landing site in California.
NASA prefers to land shut-
tles in Florida to avoid the
nearly $1.7 million price tag
to transport them back.

The vehicle will be cleaned
and refurbished before being
readied for its next trip, sched-
uled for December.

The next scheduled mission
will send Endeavour to the
space station on Aug. 7.

apartment in London’s tony
Chelsea district on Monday.

A post-mortem examination
was due to be held Wednesday.

Gottfried Alexander Leopold
Graf von Bismarck-Schon-
hausen was born in 1962 and
educated in Germany and
Switzerland before attending
Oxford University in England.

As an undergraduate, he was
known for his lavish parties and

extravagant appearance, which
at times involved dressing in
fishnet stockings or traditional
Bavarian lederhosen.

Bismarck’s life was clouded
by two deaths at his homes. In
1986, Olivia Channon, the 22-
year-old daughter of a Conser-
vative government minister,
died of a drug overdose in Bis-
marck’s bed at Oxford.

Bismarck — who was not in
the bed at the time — was not
implicated in the death,
although he was charged and
fined for possessing cocaine and
amphetamine sulfate.

At his trial, his lawyer said
Channon’s death “is going to
be a shadow over the head of
Gottfried von Bismarck, prob-
ably for the rest of his life.” The
count said years later that some
had accused him of disgracing
the Bismarck name.

Bismarck eventually settled
in London, working in finance
and the telecom business. He
remained out of the headlines
until August, when a 38-year-

old man, Anthony Casey, died ~

after falling from a terrace dur-
ing a party at Bismarck’s home.

Dr. Paul Knapman, presiding
over an inquest at Westminster
Coroner’s Court, said one room
of the apartment contained a
“bizarre” assortment of items
including a large rubber tar-
paulin on the floor, towels,
lubricants, bottles of vodka and
buckets of sex toys.

Police concluded Casey’s
death was an accident, and the
coroner’s verdict was “death by
misadventure,” meaning no one
was to blame.

A coroner’s inquest is expect-
ed to be held into Bismarck’s
death. Funeral details were not
immediately available.

Spanish survivors
of tourist attack in
Yemen return home,
along with bodies

of seven killed

@ MADRID, Spain

FIVE bandaged survivors of a
suicide bombing at a Yemeni
temple returned home Wednes-
day — one catried on a stretch-
er — along with the bodies of
seven fellow tourists who died in
the attack, according to Associ-
ated Press.

Foreign Minister Miguel
Angel Moratinos greeted the
tourists as they debarked a
Spanish Armed Forces plane
just after dawn Wednesday. Rel-
atives hugged their loved ones,
grim looks on their faces, while
a motorcade of hearses removed
the coffins from the air base.

Crown Prince Felipe and his
wife, Princess Letizia, accompa-
nied by Deputy Prime Minister
Maria Teresa Fernandez de la
Vega, later visited grieving rel-
atives of those killed at a hotel in
Madrid.

A sixth wounded Spaniard,
Maria Asuncion Vitorica,
remained in a Yemeni hospital
to undergo a second operation
and was reported to be in seri-
ous condition, Spanish authori-
ties said.

The attack occurred Monday
when a suspected al-Qaida sui-
cide bomber plowed his car into
a group of tourists visiting a tem-
ple linked to the ancient Queen
of Sheba, killing seven Spaniards
and two Yemenis in a part of
Yemen known for its lawless-
ness.

The attack came less than two
weeks after the U.S. Embassy
warned Americans to avoid the
area, which until recent years
was rarely visited because of fre-
quent kidnappings of foreign-
ers.

Yemen remained on high-
alert Wednesday as security
forces deployed to the capital
to protect embassies, govern-
ment buildings and top state
officials. Nine Islamists have
been arrested so far in a gov-
ernment sweep following the
bombing, but they are not con-
sidered suspects, police said.

Yemeni security officials said
Tuesday that they had been
warned about a possible al-Qai-
da attack, but they did not think
it would be a suicide bombing.
They said al-Qaida had warned
it would attack Yemeni oil facil-
ities, government institutions
and foreign embassies.

Hundreds of militants surrender
at radical mosque in Pakistan

i ISLAMABAD, Pakistan

ABOUT 700 followers of

radical clerics surrendered
Wednesday to government
forces who encircled the Lal
Masjid, or Red Mosque,
with troops and armored
personnel carriers, accord-
ing to Associated Press.
Sporadic firing erupted
around the mosque and an
adjacent women’s seminary
in the early evening while
three helicopter gunships

circled overhead. Clashes ©

killed at least 16 people
Tuesday, officials said.

Minister of Information
Mohammed Ali Durrani
said that “a few hundred”
militants could remain
inside the mosque, whose
clerics have challenged the
government by trying to
impose a Taliban-style ver-
sion of Islamic law in the
capital.

One of those who decided
to give up, 15-year-old
Maryam Qayyeum, said
many were not leaving the
seminary. “They are happy.
_They only want martyrdom.

‘They don’t want to go
home,” she said.

The militants had been
ordered by the government
to lay down their arms and
‘surrender by 11 a.m.
Wednesday, following a day
of clashes between security
forces and militants living
inside the sprawling mosque
compound.

All women and children
who surrender will be grant-
ed amnesty, but males
involved in killings and oth-
er crimes as well as the top
mosque leaders would face
legal action, said Deputy
Information Minister Tariq
Azim.

@ PAKISTANI female religious students surrender before a soldier of the paramilitary force, and female police officers Wednesday, July 4, 2007: in Islamabad, Pakistan.
Armed militants holed up ata radical mosque in the Pakistani capital must surrender or face punitive action from security forces, a government minister warned, a day after
gun battles left at least nine people dead.

“The deadline has expired
but we are not going to start
any action immediately. We
do not want bloodshed. We
are reasonably sure that

better sense will prevail,”
said the capital’s top securi-
ty official Khalid Pervez.

He said the government
is giving about $83 to each
person who surrenders to
help them return home.

As the deadline passed,
the mosque’s deputy leader
Abdul Rashid Ghazi said he
was prepared to talk with
the government but added,

“We will continue to defend

ourselves.”

Saceaties ©

Qayyeum said mosque
leaders were not trying to
stop students from giving
up. But her mother, who
had come to take her home
said, “They are making
speeches. They want to
incite them.”

Johar Ali, 20, who had
come to the mosque to sup-
port the militants several
days ago said there were
still hundreds inside, but he
did not see any suicide
bombers, who the mosque
leaders claimed were ready



to launch attacks.
The violence started
Tuesday when male and

‘female:student followers of

the mosque —-some of
them jaasked and armed —
rushed toward a police
checkpoint. Gunfire broke
out among the students and
security forces, sparking a
daylong series of clashes.

A senior government
spokesman, Anwar Mah-
mood, said the death toll in
Islamabad had risen to 16,
but declined to give a
breakdown of the victims.
Earlier, the government
said they had included mili-
tants, innocent bystanders, a
journalist and members of
the security forces.

Ghazi told The Associat-
ed Press that 20 of his stu-
dents had been killed by
security forces, including
two young men climbing to
the top of the mosque for
morning prayers Wednes-
day.

A young woman was also
shot and wounded on the
roof of the women’s semi-
nary, he said.

“She was shot by sniper
fire. They are shooting
directly at us,” he said ina
telephone interview. Ghazi
said there were no negotia-
tions under way with the
government to end the
standoff.

Meeting
After a meeting of top
officials early Wednesday
including President Gen.
Pervez Musharraf, Deputy

Interior Minister Zafar
Warriach said the govern-

' ment had imposed an imme-

diate curfew on the area
around the mosque. He said
authorities had run out of
patience after a six-month
standoff with the hard-line
clerics at the mosque.

“The government has
decided that those people
from the madrassa who are
defaming Pakistan and
Islam will face an opera-
tion,” Warriach said.

In the past six months, the
clerics have challenged the
government by sending stu-

: The bloodshed has added

'-to a sense of crisis in Pak-

istan, where Musharraf — a
major ally of President Bush
— already faces embold-
ened militants near the
Afghan border and a pro-
democracy movement trig-
gered by his botched
attempt to fire the country’s
chief justice.

The mosque siege sparked
street protests Tuesday in
the cities of Lahore and
Quetta organized by radical

. religious parties.

On Wednesday, officials
said a suicide car bomber
rammed a vehicle into a
Pakistan army convoy near
the Afghan border, killing
five soldiers and five civil-
ians. And unidentified
assailants fired a rocket ata
police station in northwest-
ern Pakistan, killing one
officer and wounding four.

It was not known if the
two incidents were linked
to the mosque crisis.

nine tricks, with no way to develop a
10th. When he next led a diamond,
East won with the king, cashed the
jack of clubs-and played another
club. Declarer ruffed, but West took
the last two tricks with the ace of dia-
monds and a club for down one.
The second declarer saw that
unless he scored a diamond trick, he

would fall a trick short, but that this.

could not be done if trumps were
drawn first. Therefore, after the 4-0
trump split was revealed, he led a
diamond from dummy at trick three.

South knew that if East started
with a doubleton diamond, the
defenders could negotiate a diamond
ruff, but this might not be easy for
them to do. It was a risk, though, that
had to be taken.

East followed low to the first dia-
mond, and South’s jack lost to the
ace. West retumed a club to East’s
jack, and East shifted to a spade.
Declarer won with the king, drew
trumps, led the ten of diamonds to
East’s king and claimed the balance.

Of course, East could have
defeated the contract by nising with
the diamond king at trick three, lead-
ing a diamond to West’s ace and ruff-
ing the diamond return. Alterna-
tively, West could have led a dia-
mond to East’s king after taking the
ace, and East could then have led a
low club to West’s ten'to obtain the
ruff. But South saw that his only
legitimate chance was for the oppo-
nents to go wrong, and this was far
better than what his counterpart
elected to do at the other table.

~ Rain-swolle
but flood:

‘MIAMI, Okla.

RAIN had stopped falling
Wednesday and some bloated
rivers had crested, but many
evacuees were still unable to
return to flooded homes in a
three-state region and experts
warnéd conditions may yet
worsen, according to Associ-
ated Press.

Flood warnings were
remained Wednesday for the
tain-swollen Neosho River,
which forced hundreds of res-
idents to evacuate and blocked

key roads in northeast Okla- °

homa.

The river crested at 29.2 feet
at about 1 a.m. Wednesday but
wasn’t expected to fall below
its flood stage of 15 feet at
Miami until Sunday, said
Chuck Hodges, a meteorolo-
gist with the National Weath-
er Service in Tulsa.

“The upper system that has
been almost stationary over
Oklahoma and given us all the
rain has drifted well south into.
Texas now,” Hodges said. “So
for the next several days, there
will only be a 20 to 30 percent
chance of rain just about every
day.”

Monday was the 20th
straight day that rain had fall-
en in Oklahoma City, but
Tuesday was dry.

The Caney River was still
rising just north of Tulsa,
threatening homes northeast
of Collinsville on Wednesday.

More than two weeks of
soaking weather has caused
widespread flooding in Texas,
Oklahoma and Kansas.

While the rain had moved
out of Oklahoma, rain fell
along much of the Texas Gulf
Coast during the morning and
the weather service said more
was likely from South Texas
north to the Dallas-Fort Worth

area.

“We're going to see one of
our heavier rain days of this
event,” meteorologist Monte
Oaks said Wednesday morn-

ing in the weather service’s
Austin-San Antonio office.

In addition to the flooding,
the Verdigris River had been
carrying an oil slick of 42,000
gallons of crude oil that spilled
from a flooded Kansas refinery
toward Oklahoma’s Lake
Oologah reservoir, which
supplies water to several
cities.

However, environmental





officials who flew over the area
where the Verdigris River
enters Oologah Lake said

‘there were no indications

Tuesday the oil had entered
the lake, DEQ spokeswoman
Skylar McElhaney said
Wednesday.

Upstream in Kansas, the
Verdigris was beginning to
recede at Coffeyville, but it
was kept high by water being

released from the Elk City and
Fall River Toronto Lake reser-
voirs, said Jim Miller, Mont-
gomery County emergency
manager.

At least 1,000 people were
out of their homes throughout
southeast Kansas, said Sharon
Watson, spokeswoman for the
Kansas adjutant general.

The evacuees included
Frankie Brewer, whose family

is waiting for water to recede
from their home _ in
Osawatomie, Kan.

“They say, ‘God willing and
the creek don’t rise,”’ Brewer
said Tuesday.

“Well, the creek went right
through my trailer.”

In hard-hit Texas, torrential
downpours caused more flood-
ing early Tuesday in northern
and easteia sections of the

NW FOR CHEESEBURGER

state, and some people had to
be rescued from vehicles.

The North Texas Municipal
Water District ended more
than two years of mandatory
water restrictions, saying all
lakes in the area were filled to
capacity.

The weather has been
blamed for 11 deaths in Texas
in the past two weeks and two
people are missing.

‘a real shot in the arm’

* Customs verdict to allow Freeport wholesale and retail licensees to compete with south Florida _
* Ruling will aid Nassau firms in establishing Freeport base, and unlock Hawksbill Creek benefits and transhipment potential

@ By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

he Supreme Court

‘ verdict that

backed the Home

Centre on the dis-

play of bonded

goods at retail has given

Freeport’s economy “a real shot

in the arm”, an attorney told

The Tribune yesterday, as it will

enable wholesale and retail

licensees of the Grand Bahama

Port Authority (GBPA) to

compete with souith Florida

businesses by offering more
competitive prices.

Fred Smith, an attorney and
partner at Callender’s & Co,
who had previously won four
separate verdicts against the

Customs Department in rela-
tion to bonded goods, said the
Supreme Court verdict in the
Home Centre case “builds on
the line of cases in which the
court has emphasised that
Freeport is a free port; it is a
tax-free zone”.

“This particular decision
makes it a whole lot easier for
retailers and wholesalers in
Freeport to stock merchandise
and sell it to licensees,” Mr
Smith told The Tribune.

“This provides them with the
opportunity to bring in inven-
tory without having to pay tax
[customs duties] ahead of time,
and effectively allows them to
compete with the US market.
This means wholesalers and
hardware suppliers can stock a

US tourist arrivals
drop 14% to April

@ By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

UNITED States tourist
arrivals to the Bahamas were
down by 14 per cent for the four
months to April 2007, the peak
of the tourism season, providing
a further sign that the sector is
in trouble as the Bahamas Hotel
Association (BHA) warned its
members there was “a price to
pay for apathy”.

Detailing the suspected
impact that the Western Hemi-
sphere Travel Initiative’s
(WHTI) passport requirements
had had on the hotel and
tourism industry during what
should be its seasonal high-
point, the BHA said the
Bahamas also saw 10,000 fewer
Spring Break student visitors in
March 2007.

In a letter to Harry Reid,
majority leader of the US Sen-
ate, on June 21, 2007, the BHA
said it suspected that most of
these ‘missing’ students had
probably opted to take a cruise
or vacation in the US rather

Spring Break
visitors fall by
10,000 in March

than incur the time, hassle and
extra cost of applying for an
obtaining a passport.

The BHA said: “Through
April of this year, tourism
arrivals by Americans are down
by 14 per cent. This decline has
occurred despite our industry’s
very aggressive and costly cam-
paign to reimburse the cost of
obtaining passports for —
to the Bahamas.

“The decrease in business is

ding, family and impulse busi-
ness. The time and cost in pro-
cessing passports is turning

Morton union
in strike threat

@ By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

THE union representing the
majority of Morton Salt’s 104
non-managerial employees told
The Tribune that the company’s
decision to temporarily lay-off
workers for three weeks was
“not necessary”, alleging that
some 90,800 tonnes of salt were
harvestable now, and threaten-
ing industrial action over the
move.

Wilfred Seymour, the
Bahamas Industrial, Manufac-
turers and Allied Workers
Union’s president, said the tem-
porary lay-offs, which will take
effect in the week beginning
Monday, July 16, following a
10-day notice period, would
impact the entire Inagua econ-
omy and community due to the
fact that the firm directly
employs 60 per cent of the
island’s workforce.

He added of the lay-offs: “It’s
not good at all because most of
the members feel at this time,
when we are so close to getting
back on full-scale production,
the temporary lay-offs are not
necessaty........

“For the past few weeks, we
have had tremendous weather.

Says lay-offs ‘not
necessary’ and alleges
90,800 tonnes ready
to harvest, as it warns
on industrial talks

I got, from a reliable source that
does the salt measurements,
that there’s 90,800 tonnes of salt
there that’s harvestable; ready
to be harvested now. That’s
enough for four weeks, and if
the weather holds, we will have
another 10-12 tonnes ready
before we get half-way
through.”

Mr Seymour threatened that
the union would take strike
action once the lay-offs started,
indicating that Morton Salt’s
move could impact the indus-
trial agreement negotiations
that both parties hoped were
drawing to a close.

“It really isn’t necessary. As
soon as the lay-off start, we’ll
stand the entire job down and
call it that,” Mr Seymour said.

“The serious thing about it is
that we are now closing out an

@ FRED SMITH

larger amount of inventory.

“Licensees will be less likely
to feel they have to go to Flori-
da or elsewhere to get a better
deal from wholesalers. This will
help create Freeport as a com-
petitor to south Florida. The
licensees have to have an
advantage in doing business in
Freeport, which was what was
contemplated by the Hawksbill
Creek Agreement.

“It gives a boost to wholesale
and retail licensees in Freeport,
which is exactly what the econ-
omy needs - whatever shot in
the arm it can get. We need the
Hawksbill Creek Agreement to
come into its own, so that
licensees can finally enjoy the
benefits intended 50 years ago,
and for the next 50 years.”

Mr Smith added that this ver-
dict “paves the wy” for a range
of Nassau-based businesses to
establish operations in Freeport
to take advantage of the fact
they could import inventory and
product as bonded, and not pay
customs duties until the prod-
ucts were moved to Nassau or
sold to non-licensee businesses
or he public.

“That will help boost the
economy here for Nassau busi-
nesses to have a base where
they can do that,” Mr Smith
explained. “With the Freeport
Container Port here and its
transhipment potential, it’s an
ideal opportunity for Bahamian
businesses to bring in merchan-
dise without paying tax and
export it.”

Mr Smith said countries such
as the Gulf States, Qatar and
the United Arab Emirates, had
set up duty free bazaars that
were doing “huge business”,
with buyers coming into look
at the merchandise, order it and
ship it out duty-free.

As revealed by The Tribune,
Supreme Court Justice Isaacs
ruled against Customs on the
definition of ‘consumable
stores’, deciding that just
because goods were displayed
at retail in public view did not
mean they were ‘un-bonded’,
with duty liable to be paid on
them.

He also found that goods «

company keeping all its 104 nOn-manager-
ial staff employed during a 15-week period
when no salt was harvested, its managing
director telling The Tribune that the com-
pany’s current plight showed the need to
diversify Inagua’s economy.

Glenn Bannister, Morton (Bahamas)
managing director, said in the wake of the
company anouncing its decision to tem-
porarily lay-off staff for three weeks, a move
set to commence in the week beginning
July 16, said the company’s per annum rev-
enues had been cut in half by the lack of salt
production.

With the company’s salt pans having
received 30 inches of rain in the past few
months, and harvesting come to a halt on
March 13, 2007, Mr Bannister said Morton

Firm hopes to resume salt production in early August

- and close industrial agreement in ‘one to two weeks’,
MORTON Salt’s costs are “three times |’
what they would normally be” due to the

as chief calls for diversifying Inagua economy

Salt would “be lucky to do” 600,000 tonnes
or half its usual per annum sates of 1.2
million tonnes in 2007. -

Describing this as “a huge loss for us”, he
explained that with salt production cut in
half Morton Bahamas’ revenues would also
be slashed in half for 2007, and this was
barring the absence of any more heavy rain-
fall or hurricanes.

Morton Salt employs about 60 per cent of

Inagua’s workforce, and Mr Bannister sug-

gested that the island’s economy needed
to be diversified to reduce its dependence
on the company for employment and
income.

He added that among the industries that

Inagua’s economy should look at was sus-
tainable, eco-tourism, and there is a project
underway with the Inter-American Devel-
opment Bank (IDB) to explore such oppor-
tunities.

“Diversification would definitely help the
island of Inagua, and it is something that
should be looked at relatively seriously,” Mr
Bannister told The Tribune. “If there was
some diversification, such as sustainable
tourism, you’d have another source of rev-
enue and income. Salt thaking is agricul-
ture, and the business is weather depen-

The limits on mergers

THE TRIBUNE

Syl

and other partnerships )

xempted Limited

Partnerships and

mergers are two

corporate vehicles
that may be used to achieve
specific investment objectives
by ‘potential investors in the
Bahamas.

The unique features of
these corporate vehicles
allow greater flexibility in the
overall strategic planning and
structuring of investments
within and outside the
Bahamas.

Exempted Limited

Partnerships

The exempted limited part-
nership (ELP) is a limited
partnership comprised of lim-
ited partners, who limit their
liability to their investment
interests in the entity, and
general partners who have

unlimited liability for the
debts of the partnership and
maintain its active manage-
ment.

The operational, financial
and legal obligations, and
corporate maintenance, are
the responsibilities of the

ELP’s general partners. It is .

they who can sue, and be
sued, in matters related to or
affecting the ELP.

General partners may also
initiate the partnership’s dis-
solution. Limited partners
may be liable as general part-
ners if they transact with a
third party in the partner-
ship’s name.

In the Bahamas, the
Exempted Limited Partner-
ship Act 1995, and the
Exempted Limited Partner-
ship (Amendment) Act 1998
(referred to collectively as

‘the Act’), govern the forma-
tion, operation, corporate
maintenance and legality of
the ELP.

The ELP is required to
have at least one general
partner, who may be a local
resident or a company incor-
porated or registered under
Bahamian companies’ legisla-
tion (an IBC under the Inter-
national Business Companies
Act 2000, as amended, or a
foreign registered company
under the Companies Act
1992, as amended).

ELPs are typically, though
not exclusively, used as cor-
porate vehicles for invest-
ment funds in the Bahamas.
The partnership may operate
within the Bahamas or
abroad.

In order to form an ELP,
Section 9 of the Act requires

that information regarding
the name of the ELP, general
nature of the business, the
period of duration, registered
office address, the full names
and addresses of the general
partners, and a declaration
that the ELP shall not under-
take business with the public
in the Bahamas (as defined
by the Act) be filed with the
Registrar General.

The restriction on “under-
taking business with the pub-,
lic in the Bahamas” is subject
to certain exceptions, particu-
larly in relation to business
with Bahamian IBCs‘and
other related business of an
ancillary nature.

Where the general partner
is a corporate entity, the Cer-
tificate of Incorporation and
a Certificate of Good Stand- ‘
ing must also be filed with —
the Registrar General.

The words ‘Limited Part- ,
nership’ or the letters ‘LP’,
must be included in the name
of the ELP.

The registration fee for an -
ELP is $850, and the ELP is °

mee uired to pay an annual fee

f $475 each year, except in
the year of its initial registra-
tion. Notwithstanding the
fact that the ELP is exempt
from annual business licence
fees, stamp duty and other
local forms of taxation for a
50-year period, it is required
to file a certificate each year
with payment of its annual
fee, indicating it did not do
business with the public in
the Bahamas within the pre-
vious year. The ELP is also
required to file notice of any
changes in its registration
statement.

It is important to note that
for the purposes.of exemp-
tion from local taxation, a
corporate general partner
that is deemed ‘Resident’ for
exchange control purposes in
the Bahamas, under the
Exchange Control Regula-
tions, will not be exempt
from annual business licence
fees, stamp duty and other
forms of local taxation.

While there is a require-
ment for a partnership agree-
ment to govern the ELP’s
internal and external affairs,
under the Act (as is typically .
required for most partnership
arrangements) itis highly
advisable, as a matter of good
corporate practice and to
preserve protection of the
partners’ legal interests, for —
persons seeking to use ELPs -
for their investment or other
commercial purposes to
ensure that a partnership
agreement is drafted apd
implemented upon forma-
tion.

respect of a merger between
two companies into a surviv-
ing Bahamian International
Business Company (IBC).
Since the surviving compa-
ny will be a Bahamian IBC, it
will be deemed to be incorpo-

‘rated under the Act and gov-

erned by Bahamian laws, par-
ticularly in relation to the
efficacy and legitimacy of the
merger. This includes but is
not limited to the effective

‘date, legal and procedural

requirements for the proper
registration of the merger in
this jurisdiction.

Once the two companies
have been merged into a sur-
viving Bahamian IBC and the
Certificate of Merger issued,
the merger will be irre-
versible.

The Act does not contain
any provisions that address
issues of ‘de-merger’, which
seeks to allow the merged
company to legally re-organ-
ise into its original structure
of existing as two separate
companies, as they did prior
to the merger.

Additionally, it is not cus-
tomary in this jurisdiction to
rescind a merger after a Cer-
tificate of Merger has been
issued by the Registrar Gen--
eral, particularly where the
merger involves a Bahamian
IBC and a foreign company.

It is important that the
principals of the merged
company notify the Registrar
of Companies (or his equiva-
lent) in the jurisdiction of the
foreign company that has
merged with the Bahamian
IBC, of the merger, including
the fact that the Bahamian
IBC is now the surviving
company. They should also
submit the relevant docu-
ments (inclusive of corporate
documents, agreements and
resolutions) to the Registrar
of Companies, evidencing the
merger into the surviving
Bahamian IBC.

The beneficial owners of
the merged company should
be aware that the new com-
pany will be a completely dif-
ferent and separate entity
from either of the two com-
panies that existed before,
notwithstanding the possibili-
ty of retaining the same name

Baker’s Bay
donation comes
under attack

@ By CARA BRENNEN-
BETHE
Tribune Business
Reporter



he $1.2 million

donation to the

Bahamas National

Trust (BNT) has,
not surprisingly perhaps, come
under heavy criticism from
opponents of its controversial
$175 million Baker’s Bay Golf
& Ocean Club project, who
appear to have been mobilised
by the Save Great Guana Cay
Reef Association.

In an open letter to Prime
Minister Hubert Ingraham,
Attorney General Claire Hep-
burn, and the BNT’s executive
director Eric Carey, Alfredo
Quarto, executive director of
the Mangrove Action Project,
said the donation was designed
to distract from the issues
raised by the project and ques-
tioned why it was made.

Mr Quarto said: “ World-
wide, environmentalists and
island communities are speak-
ing out against this develop-
ment. Eminent marine biolo-
gists and conservationists
denounce this mega-develop-
ment for the many ways it will
harm crucial reef, mangrove
and terrestrial environments.

“Guana Cay's environment
is unique in this world, and its
elkhorn and staghorn coral
structure is considered one of
the best and last of its type in
the world. National treasures
like Guana Cay need to be
protected, and ensuring this
island is safeguarded is one of





BNT's stewardship responsi-
bilities.

“Guana Cay's marine envi-
ronment has supported a sus-
tainable fishing community for
generations, its beauty draws
international tourism not only
to Guana Cay's small cottage
tourism centre, but its reef
helps fill up hotels and homes
in places like Treasure Cay,
Hopetown and Green Turtle
Cay.

“Beyond the vital economic
importance of Guana Cay's
unique and fragile environ-
ment, is the overriding inter-
national importance of saving
these unique environments
before it is too late; before
these natural treasures are
gone forever.”

All these allegations and
concerns have consistently
been rebutted by Baker’s Bay
and its developer, San Fran-.
cisco-based Discovery Land
Company, who say they have
taken all necessary environ-
mental safeguards and advice,
and that the project will be a
‘model’ for the entire Bahamas
when it comes to sustainable,
environmentally-friendly
tourism development.

Mr Quarto, though, suggest-
ed that rather than continue
the project, a national marine
and terrestrial park should be
created in the same contested
area.

“The economic and envi-
ronmental benefits will
resound for generations,” he
said.

Backing that that letter,
Jeremy Stafford-Deitsch, of

Smart Solutions



the Shark Trust, said he fully
agreed with Mr Quarto. He
added: “The credibility of the
Commonwealth of the
Bahamas as a place of respon-
sible tourism was brought to a
very low level by the previous
government allowing foreign
developers to destroy the nat-
ural heritage of these islands.”

He called upon the new
Prime Minster to act with envi-
ronmental responsibility and
to put the needs of the
Bahamians and the country
first.

Dr Livingston Marshall,
senior vice president of envi-
ronmental and community
affairs for Discovery Land
Company, told The Tribune
that the company had no com-
ment regarding the BNT dona-
tion, saying its reasons were
made clear in the company’s
press release on the subject.

Mr Smith said.

“TI hope that finally Customs
are getting the message that
they don’t have to wait for indi-

against on. They should apply a
general principle in all these
cases, and respect the fact that
Freeport is a tax-free zone that

It is a tax-free zone until 2054,

Mr Smith added: “I encour-

any other attempts to limit the

to respect the ruling, and gov-

United States tourist

FROM page 1

WHTI for sea travel. This was
most evident this March alone,
when the Bahamas saw nearly ,
10,000 fewer Spring Break stu-
dent visitors. Those category of
traveller opted to go on a cruise,
where no passport was
required.”

The BHA is lobbying the US:

Congress to extend the WHTI
implementation date until June
2009, the same target date being
sought by the cruise ship indus-
try and land travellers, when it
introduces legislation to amend
the initiative.

The hotel industry fears that
if the latter two categories are

granted this extension, but not
air travellers, the Bahamian
hotel sector and all its support
facilities would be placed at a
further competitive disadvan-
tage.

Deadline

In urging that the WHTI
passport deadline be extended
to June 2009 for air travellers,
the BHA wrote: “Tourism is
the economic lifeblood of our
nation and responsible for 63
per cent of our country’s
employment. Eighty-five per
cent of our nearly five million
visitors per year are American.

“Of equal importance is the
fact that we are a good trading
partner. US businesses, partic-

ularly those in south Florida,
benefit significantly from
Bahamian and Caribbean pur-
chases of goods and services to
support our tourism industry.
This, of course, is made possible
by the vibrancy of our indus-

ea LLyen

- The recent US government
decision to extend the passport
requirement for US air trav-
ellers until the end of Septem-
ber, permitting them to travel
with some other form of photo
idnetification as long as they
provided proof they had applied
for a passport, was described by
the BHA as “simply too little,
too late”.

It added: “US citizens are
unable to take full advantage
of the temporary flexibility rule
because it is taking too long for
applicants to receive a tracking
number required for proof........

“The evidence is now over-
whelmingly clear. The WHTI,
in its present form, is simply not

able to accommodate the pass-

port and traveling needs of the
American public. More time is
needed to prepare the public
and provide the support mech-
anisms necessary to process
applications in a timely man-
ner.”

The BHA told its members
that there were signs that some
members of the US Congress
supported including the
Bahamas and wider Caribbean
in the extended June 2009 dead-
line.

Members

It urged members to write to
Congressmen to influence the
outcome of any amending leg-
islation, saying that only “a
handful” had engaged in lob-
bying last autumn when the
opportunity to influence the
WHTT’s timing was still there.

“This was noted by US offi-
cials. There is a price to pay for
apathy and indifference,” the
BHA said.

industrial agreement, and look
at what the company is trying to
do now. This is not good labour
relations, and not good for
Inagua.”

With the salary issue, Mr Sey- .

mour said Morton Salt and the
union had come to a “tentative
agreement” on contingencies
the company could take in the
event that salt production was
hit by a catastrophic event, such
as a hurricane or excess rain-
fall.

The union president said it
had put forward a proposal to
Morton Salt that it would accept
a reduction in the work-week
to 32 hours, or four days, from
40 hours “in the event of a cat-
astrophic event”.

Offer

Mr Seymour said this offer
was conveyed to Morton Salt
two weeks ago, and the compa-
ny and its attorney, Oscar John-

NAD has been incorporated to manage, operate, develop and

son at Higgs & Johnson, were

supposed to come back to the
union and minister responsible
for labour, Dion Foulkes, with-
in a week.

Response

He claimed that no response
had yet been received by the
union, which is being repre-
sented by Trades Union Con-
gress (TUC) president, Obie
Ferguson. i

Mr Seymour said the union
was only waiting to hear from
Mr Bannister and executives at
Morton Salt’s Chicago-based
parent, Rohm and Haas, that
“we can get together and get
this agreement signed”.

Urging Mr Foulkes and
Prime Minister Hubert Ingra-
ham to intervene in the Mor-
ton Salt talks, Mr Seymour said
the company, which is respon-
sible for supplying electricity on
Inagua - had just raised the fuel
surcharge and electric bills.

“We are paying the highest
surcharge and light bill in the
entire Western Hemisphere,”
Mr Seymour said.

He added that the lay-offs
would have “a very, very, very
negative impact, because it will

affect all sectors of this com-
munity, all organisations in this
community, the churches, gro-
cery stores, you name it.

“We are gearing up for our
homecoming, which will be at
the end of July and early
August. The Salty Festival will
also be negatively impacted as a
result of these lay-offs Morton is
expected to implement.”

Glenn Bannister, Morton
Salt’s managing director, said
the company had called in
union leaders on Tuesday to
discuss the temporary lay-offs
with them.

Union

He added that the union had
raised several questions and
issues they wanted answers to,
which the company had asked
them to document and present
in writing so that there were no
“misunderstandings”.

Mr Bannister said Morton
Salt’s production in the
Bahamas, which was expected
to be reduced by 50 per cent to
600,000 tonnes in 2007 as a
result of the unusually heavy
rainfall, had been “outsourced”
to the company’s other sites
globally.
