Bahamas star comes second in Rome



of non-citizens
may have voted

@ By BRENT DEAN

' Tribune Staff Reporter

THOUSANDS of non-citi-
zens may have voted in the last,
and numerous other general

elections, through fraudulent

birth certificates registered with
the registrar general’ s office, it
has been claimed.

After The Tribune story yes-
terday on non-citizens voting
with search cards, new infor-
mation.was provided to the
paper, revealing that false affi-
davits, with search cards
attached, may have been
approved by the registrar gen-
eral’s department as de facto

birth certificates for Haitians, —

giving them the opportunity to
potentially register and vote.

For illegals who were not
born in the Bahamas, and wish
to obtain official documents
stating that there were, it is nec-
essary to file an affidavit with
the registrar general department
with “evidence” supporting the
claim.

Usually, The Tribune was
informed, these affidavits
require medical records, and
sworn admissions by the par-
ents or close relatives, support-
ing the claim that the child was
born in the Bahamas. However,
at least in the case of the docu-
ment seen by The Tribune,
inaccurate information is
accepted by the office as rea-
sonable proof of birth in this
country.

Despite widespread belief
that proof of citizenship is
required to vote, The Parlia-

mentary Elections Act, 1992,
allows first time voters to pro-
vide documents other than offi-
cial proof of citizenship when
registering.

Section 9(a) (ii) of the Act

states that first time voters are
required “to produce a passport
or a birth certificate or in lieu
thereof a baptismal certificate
or such reasonable evidence,
whether documentary or oth-
erwise, as the revising officer
shall consider necessary, to
prove that he is qualified to be,
and is not already, so regis-
tered.”

The Tribune was also
informed that among illegal
Haitian migrants there are actu-
al floating birth certificates.
What occurs, a source said, is
that one Haitian would obtain a
valid birth certificate, and copies

- would be made of that docu-

ment by other Haitians. This is
why, the source continued,
there are so many similar names
in the Haitian community — the
persons with the copied certifi-
cates would have to take the
name of the original certificate
holder.

“There should be no more
affidavits to register to vote,” a
source said, emphasizing that
only passports should be used
every time people come to vote.

Another source told The Tri-
bune on Thursday, that the ram-
pant use of this practice around
the election stopped the regis-
trar general’s office from issuing
search cards.

Former Marco City MP claims
200 people voted illegally

@ By DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport Reporter

FREEPORT -—- Senator
Pleasant Bridgewater, former
PLP MP, is alleging that almost
200 persons voted illegally in
the Marco City constituency in
the May 2 general election.

At a press conference held
on Friday at the PLP’s Marco
City campaign office on
Somerville Drive, Ms Bridge-
water said that she is confident

that she received the majority of

legitimate votes in Marco City.

“There is no person who vot- ~
ed legally in Marco City who is .

being challenged,” she said.
“The almost 200 persons that we
have are persons who voted and
who registered in Marco City
and ought not to have voted in
Marco City in the last election.”

The Progressive Liberal Par-
ty is contesting three seats, Blue

‘Hills, Pinewood and Marco

City. Documents have already
been filed to initiate legal pro-
ceedings in the election court.
The Free National Movement
won 23 seats to the PLP’s 18

seats. It is estimated that each
seat contested could cost the
losing party more than $100,000
in legal fees.

Senator Bridgewater hopes
that the matter can be dealt
with expeditiously.

“T don’t know exactly how
long it is going to take, but
based on what my lawyers have
said, they are expecting that the
matter should be dealt with by
the end of the year,” she said.

“It is important that this mat-
ter be dealt with expeditiously .

. because what we are alleging
is that there are people who are
sitting in parliament who ought
not to be sitting there; who
ought not to be representing the
people that they say they rep-
resent and that has to be dealt
with very quickly,” said the for-
mer MP.

Ms Bridgewater is claiming
that persons who did not live in
Marco City were registered and
voted in Marco City. She is also
alleging that non-Bahamian cit-
izens and persons who did not

Sea Hauler
victims ‘will
likely receive

settlement
under FNM’

@ By KARIN HERIG
Tribune Staff Reporter

THE Sea Hauler victims have
no legal claim of any kind on
government, but will likely still
receive some sort of financial
settlement from the FNM
administration, insider sources
claimed yesterday.

The Tribune has learned that
‘government’s legal counsel has
found that, despite government
having been found partially
responsible for the collision of
the Sea Hauler and the United
Star in 2003, it is not legally
bound to pay out any compen-
sation to the victims.

Four people lost their lives
and 25 others were injured
when the two vessels collided.
One was on its way to Nassau,
the other, overcrowded with
holidaymakers, was on its way
to a regatta in Cat Island four

_years ago. .

Commenting on. the matter
yesterday, Minister of Labour
and Maritime Affairs Dion
Foulkes-could only say that the
matter is currently before the
Attorney General’s Office.

“A legal review (is underway)
to find out exactly what the
legal position is, and as soon
that that is determined, the gov-
ernment will deal with it accord-
ingly,” the minister said.

However, a source close to
the situation claimed that an
early assessment of the Sea
Hauler victims’ legal situation
shows that government is not

- responsible for the survivor’s

financial compensation.

The source claimed that there
are plans for the new FNM gov-
ernment to intervene out of a
sense of fair play and justice,
and provide the victims with a
financial settlement...

Hope Town council accuses government
of ‘fascism’ over removal of members

& By BRENT DEAN
Tribune Staff Reporter

TROUBLE is brewing
between the Hope Town dis-
trict council and government,

with the council alleging that °

the removal of two of its mem-
bers is an act of “fascism”.

A press release was circulat-
ed yesterday under the local
government council’s banner
stating that the Ministry of
Local Government “fired” two
appointed members by direct
orders from the prime minis-
ter. However, The Tribune has
been unable to confirm
whether these men have been
dismissed.

The release, which an-

nounced a formal press confer-
ence on the matter for Thes-
day, said that Chief Councillor
Jeremy Sweeting now demands
answers from government for
this move which seeks to unseat
Chris and Joe Albury.

When contacted by The Tri-
bune yesterday about the con-
troversy, Mr Sweeting said he
did not wish to make the matter
political, however he thinks that
the dismissal of the two coun-
cillors is an act of “victimisa-
tion” by the current govern-
ment.

“It’s a group of persons in our
community, a small group I
might add, that have been trying
to discredit our accomplish-
ments since we were elected to

the Town Council since 2005.
All for political reasons, they
are trying to discredit our
accomplishments,” he said.

The press release also stated
that the Opposition has been
sympathetic about the issue and
that the PLP intends to raise
questions about the controversy
on the floor of Parliament.

When contacted by The Tri-
bune, Alfred Gray, PLP shadow
Minister for Local Government,
said he will raise this issue on
Wednesday in the House.

“It’s unfortunate that the new
government has sought to, with-
out considering the effect of
what they try to do, to try to
dismantle everything that the
former government has done.

And this is one example of rush
without thinking decision,” he
said. -

Mr Gray who was the former
minister of local government

- explained that he.appointed the

two men after the last local gov-
ernment election, because only
one person nominated for the
three vacancies that existed.
Firing these two people and
calling new elections, Mr Gray
added would be, ‘against the
law” and “shouldn't happen”.
“They want their FNM peo-
ple in place and the local gov-
ernment, that’s not a political
organisation,” Mr Gray empha-
sized.

Hotel is

& By KARIN HERIG
Tribune Staff Reporter

THE demolition of the Nas-
sau Beach Hotel, one of the
key elements in Baha Mar’s
plan for the transformation of
the Cable Beach strip, has been
pushed back yet again — this
time to January 2008.

The Nassau Beach was ini-
tially scheduled to be demol-
ished in June 2006, but the plan
was pushed back to September.
The new date for the closure
of that property is now set for
January 3, 2008, with the demo-
lition of the physical building
to take place shortly after.

Speaking with The Tribune
yesterday, Robert Sands, Baha
Mar’s senior vice-president of
administration and public
affairs, said that although the
timetable has changed, Baha
Mar still intends to go ahead
with all its plans.

Mr Sands explained that the
delay in tearing down the Nas-
sau Beach Hotel is due to two
circumstances — the change in
government and the current cli-
mate of the tourism industry.

“Nothing has changed in
terms of what we propose to
do, the timetable has been

ment with the new government
of the Bahamas,” he said.

In addition to having to adjust
to anew government, Mr Sands
said that Baha Mar also did not

want to close down the Nassau
Beach Hotel at a time when the
Bahamas is in desperate in need
of more hotel rooms.

“If those additional rooms
were taken out at this time, a
significant number of rooms

would have been off the mar-
ket,” he said.

With visitor numbers down,
tourism officials are lamenting
the lack of hotel rooms in the
country.

Demolition of Nassau Beach |
delayed yet again |

Vernice Walkine earlier this
month said that the Bahamas
still has nowhere near the hotel
rooms that are needed to
attract more visitors.

Reduction

By the end of this year, Mrs
Walkine said, the overall reduc-
tion in available hotel rooms
for the Bahamas is expected to
exceed 10 per cent.

Mr Sands yesterday said that
the Cable Beach resorts will be
able to offer a significant num-
ber of reopened hotel rooms
by December of this year.

“We’re currently working on
refurbishing 300 rooms at the
Wyndham (Nassau Resort and
Crystal Palace Casino). They
come back online by mid-
December 2007, along with the
remaining 350 rooms at the
(new Sheraton), which will give
us two of our properties almost
totally renovated in time for
the winter season,” he said.

Mr Sands said that none of
the employees at.the Nassau
Beach Hotel will be laid off,

but will instead be redeployed ©

to the other Baha Mar proper-
ties.

sland complaint over post office staffing

Crooked

& By ALISONLOWE
Tribune Staff Reporter

A CROOKED Island resi-
dent has complained that locals
have had difficulty doing any
banking because there is no one
regularly manning the local post
office.

The post office, which acts as
a bank for all those on the
island, has been open for only
one day this week, said the irate
shop owner.

"That's the main place," she
said. "If you need money,
you've got to go to the post

office, if you want to send a tele-
graph, you've got to go to the
post office, if people send you
money, you've got to go the
post office — and here it is: noth-
ing happening! The place is
closed down!"

Member of Parliament for
the MICAL constituency,
Alfred Gray, claims the closure
is a direct result of government
incompetence. _

He said the Ingraham gov-
ernment has failed to appoint
a new administrator on the
island following the July 2

retirement of the former admin- .

istrator, who had responsibili-
ty for the post office.
According to the resident, the
female staff member who is nor-
mally present to carry out trans-
actions for islanders has been
away from her post, and a tem-
porary replacement brought in
from Acklins, apparently to
work for a few days this week,
never showed.
The predicament has left
some islanders in a financial
bind, unable to fulfill certain
monetary obligations, or take
out any money in emergencics.
The shop owner said she was

after having to explain to
some of her suppliers, includ-
ing water company Chelsea's
Choice, that she would be
unable to pay money owed at
the scheduled time.

"I had to tell them to hold
on for me 'til Monday when
the lady comes back," said the
shop owner. "This needs to be
stopped!"

Several suppliers expressed
surprise and concern at the
situation, and the local said
that she feels the only way the
matter_will be addressed is if
"the whole country knows."

Sheaid some residents
have called the postmaster in
Nassau about their difficulties,
but to no avail. The problem
has flared up intermittently
over a period of years, she
added.

The resident is calling for
the issue to be addressed
immediately, and claims that
there should be more than
one staff member allocated to
the post office to cater to the
400 residents.

Yesterday, Mr Gray said
that he is deeply disturbed by
the matter and intends to

bring it up in parliament on
Wednesday.

He claims that the failure . ie

of the government to ensure

there is an administrator on | }

the island is particularly
galling in light of the fact that
three out island administra-
tors have been transferred to
Nassau to “sit down" and do
nothing.

This move is an act of vic-
timisation, he claims, carried
out because these administra-
tors voted for the PLP in the
May 2 election.

In the meantime, the
Ragged Island administrator
is fulfilling duties on both
islands, but simply "can't be
in two places at one time,"
said Mr Gray.

Attempts to reach the post-
master general yesterday were
unsuccessful as several phone
lines were either busy or nev-
er.answered.

Minister of Local Govern-
ment Sidney Collie was said
to be out of office all day.

Efforts to reach Minister of
State for Finance Zhivargo
Laing, who has responsibility

for post offices and savings . i

banks, were also unsuccessful.

ROMAN Catholic bishops
from across Latin America’
released a blueprint Wednes-’
day on how they plan to reverse
the exodus of members in the’
region to evangelical Protestant
churches, according to Associ-
ated Press.

To slow the tide of defectors,
the 136-page declaration said’
Catholic leaders must create “a-
church full of evangelical force '
and capability, that is dynamic
enough to win over members
who have let their faith lapse. It
said it must also inspire anew

concern about the rise of “indi--
vidualism and a mentality of rel-'
ativism in ethics and religion,” ’
and denounced homosexuality.:

The declaration was posted

sion charges on Thursday.

Travis Johnson, a 21-year-old
resident of Peridot Place, Coral
Garden, appeared before Act-
ing Deputy Chief Magistrate

It is alleged that on July 10
the accused was found in pos-

taining six ounces of marijuana
and another package with 20
grams of cocaine.

ed by attorney Brian Hanna.
He was remanded to Fox Hill

Schwarzenegger
urges more
co-operation on
environment

@ MIAMI

CALIFORNIA Governor
Arnold Schwarzenegger urged
US states Friday to pressure
Washington to do more to pre-
vent climate change, discount-
ing the argument that protecting
the environment hurts the econ-
omy, according to Associated
Press.

Speaking at a summit orga-
nized by Republican Florida
Governor Charlie Crist,
Schwarzenegger said the cli-
mate change issue should not
be political and is one that con-
servatives also must embrace.

“There is no Democratic
planet Earth. There is no
Republican planet Earth.
There’s just a planet Earth and
we all have a responsibility to
take care of it,” Schwarzeneg-
ger, a Republican, told the
crowd of 600.

Crist called the two-day sum-
mit to examine the effects of
climate change and discuss
strategies for reducing green-
house gases. He concluded the
summit Friday by signing orders
that will require state agencies
to conserve energy and power
companies to use more renew-
able energy.

Crist also signed agreements
with the United Kingdom and
Germany to co-operate on
efforts to stop climate change,
including sharing technology
and information.

During his speech,
Schwarzenegger acknowledged
the perception that Republicans
have not been as strong on envi-
ronmental issues.

“Three-and-a-half years ago
when I ran for governor, I had
environmental protesters fol-
lowing me around saying ‘He’s
a Republican! Please stop!
Don’t vote for him! He’s going
to destroy the environment!”
Schwarzenegger said.

California has since become a
‘leader in promoting strategies
for reducing carbon dioxide
emissions, which are blamed for
causing the planet’s tempera-
tures to rise. He noted the
state’s use of solar energy and
hydrogen fuel and its push for
more stringent emissions stan-
dards for vehicles.

“We have proven that
Republicans can, in fact protect
the environment,” he said.

US President George W
Bush refused to join the 1997
Kyoto Protocol, which requires
developed countries to reduce
their carbon dioxide emissions
to 5 per cent below 1990 levels
by 2012.

California has been battling
the federal Environmental Pro-
tection Agency for two years to
get permission to implement a
state law that would require
automakers to reduce green-
house gas emissions by 25 per-
cent from cars and 18 percent
from sport utility vehicles by
the 2009 model year.

A STRAW vendor has come

their market stalls to illegal

According to the vendor,
who wished to remain anony-

government officials with
responsibility for the Straw
Market but they have done
nothing about it.

She alleges to have seen per-
sons take bribes “under the

them to remain.

“Many other people like me
feel this way but they just won't

“bread and butter” of many
vendors.

According to the sales-
woman, stall owners claim that
some of those to whom they
rent their stalls are merely
“workers” selling wares for
them, and deny that they have
actually handed over the use
of the stall to that person for a
fee.

The vendor’s complaints
come at a time when the ques-
tion of whether — or to where —
the straw vendors will be relo-
cated until the new straw mar-
ket is constructed, remains
unresolved.

Attempts to reach Minister
of Works Earl Deveaux yes-
terday were unsuccessful and
messages were not returned up
to press time.

FREEPORT - An Ameri-
can woman who was reported
missing by her Bahamian hus-
band five days ago was found
safe and sound on Bird Cay,
according police officials on
Grand Bahama.

Krista Brown, 47, was dis-
covered around 4.45pm on
Thursvlay by officers of the
Central Detective Unit, who
had launched a search for the
womar following her disap-
pearance last Friday at Chub
Cay in the Berry Islands.

According to initial police
reports, Fisherman .Esley
Brown had reported his wife
who is from. Vermont, New
England, missing to Great
Harbour Police around 10pm
on July 6.

He told police that Mrs
Brown hhad left the island in

: the family’s speedboat after

the couple had a heated argu-
ment. They were staying at
the Berry Island Club at the
time.

Police and BASRA officials
found the 17-foot blue Aquas-
port speedboat on Sunday
anchored about 60 yards off
the northwestern side of the
Big Whale Cay.

_ However, there was no sign
of Mrs Brown. They also
searched tthe island, but found
no trace of her.

Chief Superintendent Basil
Rahming said that police con-
tinued their search of the 34-
island chain.

More terrorist attacks in UK forecast

LONDON — A former British intelligence
chief has warned that terrorists will mount
another successful attack on Britain, despite
their failure to carry out recent car bombings
in London and Glasgow, Scotland.

Stella Rimmington, who led the domestic
intelligence agency MI5 from 1992 to 1996,
also said in an interview published Friday that,
unlike Prime Minister Gordon Brown and his
predecessor, Tony Blair, she believed that
Britain’s military role in Iraq has inspired
young men to join terrorist plots against the
United Kingdom.

Five suspects are being questioned over the
three attempted attacks late last month in
London’s entertainment district and at Glas-
gow airport. All three makeshift car bombs
failed to detonate.

“JT don’t think we should take a great deal of
comfort from the fact that these latest bombs
were botched,” Rimmington told the Daily
Mail newspaper. “Creating homemade explo-
sives is difficult and they will get it wrong, but
they will get it right as well.”

The only man charged is Bilal Abdullah, a
27-year-old British-born doctor raised in Iraq
who is accused of conspiring to cause explo-
sions.

Brown said Wednesday he believed mili-
tary action in Iraq and Afghanistan had no

impact on the threat to Britain from terrorism,
saying the country would be at risk in any
case.

No nation could be secure when al-Qaida
linked terrorists are “determined to practice
carnage across the world,” Brown said.

Rimmington acknowledged that al-Qaida
attacks predated the Iraq and Afghanistan
conflicts, but said the significance of the wars
should not be played down.

’ “Terrorism was around from this source
before we went into Iraq or Afghanistan,” she
told the newspaper. “But there is no doubt it
has acted as a recruiting sergeant for a lot of
these young men because of this sense of griev-
ance about foreign policy.”

“If we had not gone to war I sense we would
have had some of this, but not at the same
level,” she added.

MI5 head Jonathan Evans has said agents
are tracking at least 30 plots within Britain
and around 1,600 suspected terrorists.

Al-Qaida is stepping up its efforts to sneak
terror operatives into the United States and
has acquired most of the capabilities it needs
to strike there as well, according to a new U.S.
intelligence assessment that government offi-
cials described to The Associated Press on
condition of anonymity because the report
has not been finalized.

Another China syndrome

Government officials in China have tried
to portray the execution of Zheng Xiaoyu,
former head of that country’s State Food and
Drug Administration, as an effective cure for
the corruption behind the export of dangerous
and sometimes deadly food products and med-
ications, But the rot is systemic. It can hardly
be excised by sentencing a high-profile official
to death.

While it may be a positive sign that the
Communist Party has acknowledged China’s
failures to regulate food and drug safety, this
is the least that could be expected. After all, a
long list of Chinese products have recently
caused sickness and death in North and South
America and in Asia. Among them are tooth-
paste, fish and other seafood, pet food, toys,
and various medicines. If everything made in
China can be considered to share the same
brand name, that brand has suffered a very
costly blow to its reputation.

Perhaps the most revealing signs of just how
sensitive the government has become to inter-
national suspicions about the unreliability of
Chinese products are the official assurances it
has issued about the food to be served to ath-
letes coming to Beijing next year for the sum-

‘mer Olympic games. “All the procedures
involving Olympic food, including produc-
tion, processing, packaging, storing, and trans-
porting will be closely monitored,” an official

INTENT TO CHANGE NAME BY DEED POLL

The Public is hereby advised that we, ANTIONETTE HIGGS NEE
HEPBURN and SEWELL HIGGS of the island of New Providence, the
mother and father respectively of SHERELLE DENISE SHANETTE
SANDS, intend to change her name to SHERELLE DENISE

The special care taken for food at the
Olympics will do no more to clean out the
corruption in China, however, than the dra-
conian punishments meted out to a few promi-
nent bribe-taking officials. Thus far, there has
been no government effort to identify, prose-
cute, and punish the bribe-givers. Indeed, after
a Chinese newspaper referred by name to
some of the companies allegedly doing the
bribing, China’s Central Propaganda Depart-

ment told two major Chinese Internet por-.

tals to remove the article from their sites. The
offending article vanished the same day.

This governmental compulsion to control
information goes to the core of China’s cor-
ruption syndrome. Where a single political
party maintains a monopoly on power, the
only reforms that can be tolerated are those
that suit the ruling party’s interests.

Since the Communist Party elites still feel
threatened by a free press, they go on refusing
to let in the cleansing sunshine of criticism.

China was able to export products that
killed dozens of people not because of one
corrupt official but because of its one-party
system, its lack of a truly free press, and its sav-
age style of unregulated capitalism.

What we
can all do to
cut crime

EDITOR, The Tribune.

THE role and function of
prosecution in our criminal
justice system demands
immediate attention by our
government. Our Courts are
in shambles and due to very
good work by our Police
Force the backlog of cases
continue to escalate, result-

' ing in persons accused of very

serious crimes being given
bail after years in prison with-
out trial. The Police suspect
that some of these persons on
bail may be responsible for
any number of the crimes of
violence perpetrated against
our citizens. For years I have
complained through letters to
the press of what I saw as a
growing problem in the
courts. The situation during
the Sir Lynden Pindling era,
continued into the Hubert
Ingraham and the Perry
Christie era. In recent years
the situation worsened.

Public prosecution is an
important component in our
criminal justice system. Pros-
ecution of an offender is the
duty of the Police, the Attor-
ney General (Director of Pub-
lic Prosecutions) and the
Courts (Magistrate and
Supreme Courts). The Direc-
tor of Public Prosecution is on
the staff of the Attorney Gen-
eral. He/she is a public ser-
vant, who conducts prosecu-
tions on behalf of the State.
He is provided with an ade-
quate number of legal staff to
carry out the functions. Police
Prosecutors have always car-
ried this function in the Mag-
istrates’ Courts, witha great
measure. of success.

While it is the responsibility
of prosecutors to try and
secure convictions, they need
not be overwhelmingly con-
cerned with the outcome of
the trial. They are officers of
the courts and are required to
present a truthful picture
before the courts. Even
though they appear on behalf
of the State, it is equally their
duty to see that accused per-
sons do not suffer in an unfair
and unethical manner. They
have to be truthful and impar-
tial so that even the accused
persons receive justice.

Our courts generally believe
in the individualisation of sen-
tences, which could depend
on the seriousness of the
crime, the age of the accused,

his previous background and
other possible factors before
imposing sentence. The pros-
ecutor is expected to use his
discretion when arguing for
adequate punishment.

The present state of our
Courts has placed the prose-
cutors at a disadvantage. ‘The
mere fact that important cases
could take three, four or even
five years to get to trial. has
given defence attorneys ‘a dis-
tinct advantage, which they
have been known to use effec-
tively in our courts. Witnesses
tend to forget minor details
and when cross-examined by
defence attorneys are made
to appear to be untruthful and
dishonest as they present their
facts to the jury.

As a result good Police
work goes down the drain
when persons, if tried ‘earlier
may have been convicted. In
addition to the foregoing it is
very well known that witness-
es have disappearecl, been
threatened or bribed not to
appear or to appear and give
contrary evidence in the
courts.

It is said, that; “conumunity
Safety is everybody’s respon-
sibility and Crime Prevention
is everyone's business.” I sub-
mit that the condition of our
courts has a direct affect on
the present crime trend in our
country. Communities must
lobby to get this serious situa-

tion addressed with some

urgency.

The Police cannot. prevent
murders. Their job is'to inves-
tigate and arrest the offend-
ers. The murderer k:nows his
victim, selects the weapon, the
time date and place.. This
information is not piivy to the
Police. J Edgar Hoover, the
famous FBI Director once
said, that the Police are pow-
erless to prevent murders and
he used as his example the
assassinations of US Presi-
dents with well trained Secret
Service personnel around
then.

In a review of the motives
for most of our murders in
The Bahamas I have found
that in many instances the vic-
tims could have taken some
precautionary measures or

selves. Following are my rec-
ommendations to potential
victims: :

e Anger management
appears to be non-existent in
our country. Do not get into
arguments. Walk away rapid-
ly. Remember what used to
be fist fights are now knives
and guns.

¢ You are living with a hus- »

band or sweetheart, who bru-
talises you. One day his vio-
lence against you will end in
your death. Leave him. Get a
Court Order for him to stay
away from you.

e Parents can talk to their
children, who are in gangs.
Their future is bleak. Death

can occur at any time. It may °
be necessary to send them '

away for a while. Many of our
youthful victims are reported-
ly members of gangs.

e There are women in our

country, who are provided for ;

by men, who pay the rent,
purchase food and clothing,
etc. Many of these men are
very jealous and are violent.
Men should stay away from
these women. Their lives are

in danger when they date and: °-

have affairs with such women.

¢ If you borrow money from »
the Drug Lord. Pay him or -

leave the country until you
can. The same applies if you

double-cross him in any deal -

or agreement.

e If you steal the Drug Lord
drugs or money. Leave town.
Disappear. Do not date the
Drug Lord's woman.

e Important witnesses in
serious crime cases must be
very alert. Report suspicious

‘ persons and incidents to the

Police. Request: Witness, Pro-
tection.’

e If you are a victim of an
armed robbery. Do what the

eb alae a

bandit says. Don’t be a dead .

hero. Use your observation
and senses, that may assist in
identification later.

e We must be aware that
many of the murders commit-
ted in our country have been
what the Americans call “hit
men”. The paid assassins
could be from outside The
Bahamas.

Finally, help your Police
Force to protect you from
harm.

AFTER a series of “sense-
less” killings, the rapid rise in
the murder rate has Bahamians
crying out that crime has spi-
raled out of control — and many
are looking to the Royal
Bahamas Police Force for
answers.

As reported by The Tribune,
an 18-year-old man was stabbed
to death on Thursday night,
becoming the country’s 44th
murder victim for the year.

On Friday, the victim’s fami-
ly positively identified the body
as.that of Elima Souffrant, a
resident of Farrington Read.

LOCAL NEWS

Need for community involvment
stressed as murder rate rises

According to a statement
released by Assistant Superin-
tendent Walter Evans, Mr Souf-
frant was walking along Mead-
ow Street around 8pm on

Thursday night, in the vicinity of

Parker Street, when he was
reportedly approached by two
men who stabbed him multiple
times.

Mr Evans added that police
are actively looking for the
assailants, and by the day’s end
hope to have a suspect in cus-
tody.

Reports have surfaced that
former Minister of Health, Dr
Bernard Nottage, attempted to
revive the victim at the scene

of the crime. However, The Tri-
bune could not reach Dr Not-
tage for verification or comment
up to press time.

Concern

According to Royal Bahamas
Police Force (RBPF) statistics,
prior to Thursday’s homicide,
70 per cent of murder victims
in the first half of 2007 were
men between the ages 18 and
35:

While this is an “area of
growing concern” for the police
force, officials at the RBPF
insist stronger community

involvement needs to occur in
order to combat this “alarming”
trend.

Mr Evans maintains that
while the RBPF is “doing every-
thing they can” to fight the war
on crime, they need assistance
from the public to combat all
social ills.

“It camt just is the police, it
must be a holistic approach
between the [RBPF] and the
community. The police are
doing all they can do, but it can-

. not be done alone. The com-

munity must be a part of the
approach,” Mr Evans told The
Tribune on Friday morning. ,

He added that the police

force has certain measures in
place to work within communi-
ties in the fight against crime.

“Our community relations
department has consistent and
ongoing initiatives, and these
programmes are very much
alive to reach out and try to
reform some of these issues
going on in the country,”*Mr
Evans said.

Despite these initiatives, the
serious crime rate is on a steady
incline. And according to the
present murder rate, the coun-
try is on track to reach an
unprecedented count of 80
homicides before the end of the
year.

BRINGING blessings and
warm regards from the Jewish
community at large, Rabbis
Chaim Zaklos and Mendel
Kalmenson made a stopover
visit to Grand Bahama and New
Providence to meet with local

‘members of the Jewish com-

munity.

“Even though, geographical-
ly, we are divided from the oth-
er Jewish communities,” said
Rabbi Zaklos, “we still care

about them and pray for their
well-being and welfare.”

The Rabbis said that a major
goal of their organisation,
Chabad Lubavitch, is to try and
take care of the spiritual and,
whenever possible, physical
needs of members of Jewish
communities.

Headed by Rabbi M M
Schneersohn, the Chabad
Lubavitch organisation has 170
divinity students distributed
throughout North and South
America, the Caribbean and

Europe.

Saying that they are "some-
what like a mobile Judaic cen-
tre," the Rabbis noted that they
are here to bring blessing and
protection to the homes of their
Jewish followers in the
Bahamas.

“It is our objective to light
the Jewish spark that is found in
every Jew,” said Rabbi Kalmen-
son. “We want to show the
beauty of Judaism. We want to
show that its practice is not lim-
ited to living in large Jewish

communities like Israel and
back in New York. It can be
seen no matter where you are
world over."

The Rabbi went on to say
that his organisation tries to
enhance and help Jews living
outside of the larger communi-

_ ty to fulfill their needs.

“We highlight and focus on
Jewish unity and finding a
common denominator, as
opposed to that which
divides," Rabbi Zaklos told
The Tribune. "No matter your

Rabbis arrive to meet with Jewish community

upbringing, knowledge, your
observance level, we are all
one people.: We are trying to
strip away the labels of differ-
ence and trying to find a point
of common ground where we
could unite as one people,
especially now days.

As a part of their community
building effort while in New
Providence, the two hosted a
Shabbat dinner and service.

interested persons are asked to

RECOGNISING the seri-
ousness of the illness and the
cost factor involved in managing
it, Scotiabank purchased a six-
month supply of the medication
for several diabetic children.

Debra Wood, senior manager
of marketing and public rela-
tions at Scotiabank, said that
living with diabetes is difficult
for anyone, but especially for
young children.

“At Scotiabank, we recognise
that much of the burden falls
on the parents who are faced
with ensuring that their children
have the medication needed to
live.

“Hence, we demonstrated our
good corporate citizenship by
purchasing insulin, lancets, test
strips and daily blood sugar
testers for the children, which
will help relieve some of the
financial burden that many of

_ their parents face. Helping those

in need, especially children is an
essential part of the way we do
business at Scotiabank.”

Accepting the gift on some
of the children’s behalf were
founding members of the
Bahamas Diabetic Association
and mothers of diabetic chil-
dren Diana Pinder and Ethel
Knowles.

They were joined by three of

- the children — Timia Simms,

Pycewell Pageot and Naomi
Brown.

TRANSFORMERS

Starring: Shia LaBeouf,
Megan Fox

WHEN you see director
Michael Bay’s name attached
to a movie, you know what
you’re in for. Bad Boys I & I,
Armageddon and, most recent-
ly, The Island have all show-
cased his talents for filling the
screen with big, shiny cars and
helicopters . . . Then blowing
them up.

' So if you’re hoping fora
change of direction with Trans-
formers — which features two
hours of giant robots smashing
things to pieces — you may be
disappointed.

Based loosely on the eight-
jes’ toys and cartoons of the
same name, the film opens with
a monologue about a war on a
distant planet which has result-
ed in two factions of robots
(which can “transform” from
machine to vehicle) searching
for a giant, life-giving cube that
has arrived on earth. Or some-
thing. Sound ridiculous? You
ain’t heard nothing yet: A high
school _ teenager,
(LeBeouf), soon becomes the
target of these alien machines
thanks to a pair of spectacles
that belonged to his late adven-
turer grandfather whick he’s

trying to sellon eBay! I kid you

not.

Meanwhile, US soldiers
based in the Middle East find
themselves stomped on by a
transformer in the desert and
in combat against a huge met-
al scorpion - understandably
raising government concerns
that something odd is going
on.

These and several other silly
plot threads, finally converge in
an epic showdown between
good and evil on the streets of
Los Angeles.

Even by the standards of
movies of this nature, the plot

HEALTH and Social Devel-
opment Minister Dr Hubert
Minnis launched a fresh appeal
to Bahamians to live healthier
lifestyles as more and more
deaths in the country are result-
ing from chronic, non-commu-
nicable diseases.

“These diseases, such as dia-
betes, high blood pressure,
coronary heart disease and can-
cer account for approximately
over 50 per cent of the deaths in
this country and a contributory
factor is the way we presently
live,” Dr Minnis said.

He was speaking on Thurs-
day at the official opening the
Health and Wellness exhibition
at the Mall.at Marathon on
Thursday morning.

“Hence, in order to reduce
the level of non-communicable
diseases we need to make some
lifestyle changes,” said Dr Min-
nis.

A number of health exhibits
outlining the dangers of smok-
ing, high blood pressure and
dental diseases were on display
at the mall. Many persons col-
lected health brochures and
stopped to view the numerous
pictures on display.

the theme: ‘Healthy body, mind
and heart, let's do our part.’

‘The Ministry of Health and
Social Development in con-
junction with the Public Hospi-
tals Authority, private health
organisations, tion-governmen-
tal organisations and the media
committed to the number of
activities in an effort to decrease
the mortality rate of Bahami-
ans who die of chronic, non-
communicable diseases, Dr
Minnis said.

He said that the link between
these diseases and the death
rate has “strengthened our
resolve to ensure that the gen-
eral public is fully aware of the
tremendous benefits of adopt-
ing healthy lifestyles."

One way toward achieving
that end is through education,
he said, and the health fair,
exhibition, and health screen-

ing is a start in the quest T6r‘a ~

“Take advantage of the

“It will serve as a progress

he said. ,

The Ministry of Health can-
not succeed with the 100-day

Minnis. He encouraged all civic

Who can succeed Perry Christie?

HE Progressive Liber-

al Party’s convention in
November could be the site of
Nassau’s newest fight club as a
political mélée is anticipated as
several eager politicians are
expected to be jockeying for the
posts of leader and deputy
leader.

As the debate continues
about former Prime Minister
Perry Christie’s future as party
leader, it is without question
that the time has come for Mr
Christie to step down. After
serving a single term, Mr
Christie’s party suffered a crush-
ing defeat and seemingly has
yet to recover from their elec-

tion thumping.

During the five years that he
led the country, Mr Christie was
accused of indecision and
seemed incapable of making
decisions without a multitude
of opinions. He was at the van-
guard of a unruly Cabinet and a
government that was entangled
in allegations of corruption.
Although the former PM
promised accountability, trans-
parency and a strict adherence
to his much-hyped Code of
Ethics, he seemingly turned a
blind eye to the scandals and
the accusations of nasty goings-
on that plagued his administra-
tion.

While Mr Christie was a fan-
cy talker (little action) who
dithered for a considerable pro-

portion of his term, I do credit
him with maintaining a stable
economy, initiating the Urban
Renewal Programme that he
championed to provide oppor-
tunities for inner city residents
and discourage crime, his deci-
sion to revitalize historic Nassau
and relocate the ports, the
establishment of the Clifton
Heritage Park and his efforts to
attract foreign investors/capital
to our shores.



After serving a
single term, Mr
Christie’s party
suffered a
crushing defeat
and seemingly
has yet to
recover from
their election
thumping.



With that said, as with most
former leaders of countries that
suffer election defeats, Mr
Christie must begin grooming
potential successors and should
step down in the coming
months. In Canada, which is
also a parliamentary democracy

that adheres to the statutes of
the Westminster system, when
the Liberal party was ousted,
former Prime Minister Paul
Martin not only relinquished his
post as parliamentary leader,
but also resigned as party
leader. Martin’s resignation
came within two months of his
party’s defeat.

Who will lead the PLP after
Mr Christie’s departure?

kK nowledgeable sources
say that the main con-

tenders for the leadership of the
PLP are Dr Bernard Nottage,
Obie Wilchcombe, Allyson
Maynard-Gibson, and to a less-
er extent Fred Mitchell and
Vincent Peet.

Although Cynthia ‘Mother’
Pratt is currently the party’s
deputy leader, it is highly
unlikely that she would throw
her hat into a leadership rum-
ble.

Former Health Minister Dr
Bernard Nottage is a top con-
tender in a potential leadership
face-off. Dr Nottage, who is also
seen as a protégé of the late Sir

Lynden Pindling, is a veteran
politician who is known as an
adept coordinator and well-
known to the rank and file of
his party.

Dr Nottage’s main opposi-
tion, however, is expected to
come from those elements with-
in his party that do not regard
him as a party loyalist, particu-
larly since he left, led his own
party and vociferously chastised
the PLP, then abandoned his
CDR party and crept back to
the PLP at the party’s 2005 con-
vention. Another shortcoming
that could hinder Nottage’s
ascension to the leadership post
is his age (senior citizen), as
many party stalwarts may now
be seeking a youthful leader
who would not only be able to
lead the party in the interim but
possibly for another 10-15 years.

Dr Nottage has the experi-
ence and talent, but will the par-
ty’s delegates and young turks
accept him?

Obie Wilchcombe, a two
term MP, is considered a most
formidable candidate to be
leader. Mr Wilchcombe is well-
liked among party delegates,
has experience in both the

House of Assembly and the
Senate and is youthful and quite
charismatic. A leadership con-
frontation between Nottage and
Wilchcombe could cause a
splinter within the PLP.

son Is said to have led

frontline politics as a member of
the PLP. Although Mrs Gibson
is a viable contender, she is seen
as potentially divisive, appears
to be pompous and hot-head-
ed and is not seen as the most
engaging or affable challenger.
Recently, Mrs Gibson has been

heavily criticized for what
appeared to be inane ullerances
made in an attempt to filibuster

during the budget debate tn the

@ By BARRINGTON BRENNEN

Hee Help! Help!
Everywhere you turn,

people are crying "help!"

It's not only cries from
wounds or broken bones caused
by auto accidents. It is not just
cries from painful robberies
experienced the night before.
It is the loud cries from wound-
ed and hurting families who feel
trapped, alienated, confused
and powerless. It is the cries
from tired parents; love hungry
teenagers, and angry spouses.
It is the cries from exhausted

parents: who.are. just about.to.... ,

; Aree: important
ingredient for change

give up on their troublesome,
drug-crazed teenagers.

It is the cries from school
teachers whose skills seem inept
against the defiant and violent
behaviour of the disrespectful

‘students. It is the crises from vic-

tims of rape, robbery, abuse, and

theft. It is the cries from families

of murdered individuals.

There are even more cries
coming from behind prison
walls where many feel the pain
of rejection. The rejection of
their parents and peers early in
their lives led them to lives of
hurting others just to get even.
It is true that not all who need
help are crying. These tearless
citizens are numbed by either
the prolonged, painful journey
of life they have experienced,

or they were never truly taught _

right from wrong. They have no
idea they are in a mess.

People are crying because
they do not know what to do.
Some are crying because deep
down inside they know they
have placed themselves in the
vicious cycle of pain and plea-
sure, ups and downs. Their only
knowledge of how to relieve the
pain or how to get out of the
mess isn't working. The truth is
most people are crying because
they have been too stubborn to
learn, too stubborn to change,
and too proud to admit their
faults. They have locked them-
selves as it seems in a bottomless
pit of shameful deceits where
the slippery walls of ignorance
and pride surround them pre-
venting any attempt to get out..

How can we fix this? Is their
hope for our families? Is there
hope ‘for our nation? Yes there
is hope, but only after we apply
the following basic four ingre-
dients.

BRAIN POWER

o fix our families and

nation we first need
lots of brain power. Everyone
has a brain but too many are
lacking the mental energy to do
something about what is wrong.
Too many are lacking the intel-
lect, knowledge and ethos that
are so greatly needed at this
time in our nation. Historically
it seems that we are more
famous for just standing by and
"leaving it alone" or not prob-
ing deeply into the reasons for
our nation’s problems. Or is it
we are not really aware that
there is a problem? I can hear
many shouting "What is
wrong?" or "If it isn't broken
don't fix it."

Too long have we stood on
the side and let negative tradi-
tions and so-called cultural
norms take control of our soci-
ety. Every citizen can develop
this brain power. Having the
brain power means that we are
willing to think, change, feel and
then act. Having the brain
means that we are willing to say
that something is wrong. Having
the brain power means that we
are not sleeping but wide awake
and have not allowed the pain
around us to sap us or own abil-
ity to think and reason.

EMOTIONAL POWER

is the ability to feel the pain that
surrounds us. It is allowing our-
selves to get angry at what is
wrong in our society. Francis
Shaffer in his book "A Time for
Anger — the Myth of Neutral-
ity" reminds us that if there is
anyone who-should be angry
and do something about the ills
in the society it is the Christian.

’ How can we sit down'like cold,

insensitive creatures and do not
allow ourselves to be touched
by the pain of others? How can

we not shed tears over the loss

of innocent lives? How can we



Too long have
we stood on the
side and let
negative
traditions and
so-called
cultural norms
take control of
our society.



not weep over the repeated sex-
ual molestations of innocent
toddlers by persons whom they
should trust? How can we not
cry over the teenage girl preg-
nant with her third child and
dying of AIDS? How can we
not feel the pain of a 15-year-
old boy who is raped by his
uncle? How can we not get
angry at the husband who
leaves his faithful wife for
another woman, gets her preg-
nant, and expects his wife to
take care of the baby? How can
we not get angry when visiting
pastors’ wives from abroad are
solicited for sex by make-
believe good-natured men who
are really male prostitutes?
How can we not get emotional
when married men enjoy being
seduced in a public night club
by female lap dancers? How
can we not get angry when
mothers leave their children at
home while they go out all night
on the town having multiple sex
partners?

We must feel it. Until we are
able to feel the pain and allow
our emotions to get involved,
we will not be able to fix the
problem. We need the intellect
so badly, but we also need the
feelings. When we have intel-

YOUR



lect (brain power) without feel-
ings we have a cold family or
society. Let's start feeling.

MUSCLE POWER

fter utilizing our brain °
and emotional pow-
ers we must now.

have the muscle power. We can-
not just talk and cry about the
problem, we must get up and
do something about it. Having
the muscle power means that
after going through the mental
processes of reasoning trom
cause to effect, and allowing
ourselves to feel, we now put
into action what has been dis-
cussed. In truth when we allow
ourselves to honestly think and
feel we create an energy to get
up and go. It calls for everyone
doing their part, no matter how
small. We cannot be satisfied
being labelled lazy or docile.
Muscle power does not only
mean marching against crime
or attending important planning
meetings. It is more important-
ly participating in the process
of change. Having the muscle
power means we will leave our
prayer meetings empowered to
act. We must remember not
doing a thing after we finish
praying makes our prayer null
and void. We need praying peo-
ple who can work. This brings
me to the next ingredient.

SPIRITUAL POWER

W hat is greatly need-
ed today is the spir-

itual power to change our
nation. The forces of evil are
surrounding and weakening us.
Having spiritual powerymeans
that we are relying on God to
give us the wisdom and strength
to make the change first in our
own lives and then in the live of
others. It is admitting that the
evil forces are too great to bat-
tle alone. The Apostle Paul says
in Ephesians 6:10-13. (New Liv-
ing Translation):

10. "A final word: Be strong
with the Lord's mighty power.
11. Put on all of God's armour
so that you will be able to stand
firm against all strategies and
tricks of the Devil. 12. For we
are not fighting against people
made of flesh and blood, but
against the evil rulers and
authorities of the unseen world,
against those mighty powers of
darkness who rule this world,
and against wicked spirits in the

‘heavenly realms. 13. Use every

piece of God's armor to resist
the enemy in the time of evil, so
that after the battle you will still
be standing firm.

“Unless we allow the trans-
forming power of the Holy Spir-
it to take control of our lives,
another powerful force
(although not as powerful) will
overwhelm us. Too many of us
under estimates the power of





Satan. His main mission is to
"seek out those he can destroy."

His main target is the family.
If he can weaken the family
then the church, government,
and the community is lost. We
must be spiritually alert not to
allow the subtle power of the
devil to overtake us. We are
told in 1 Peter 5:8:

"Be careful! Watch out for
attacks from the Devil, your
great enemy. He prowls around
like a roaring lion, looking for
some victim to devour."

Let us get closer to God. Too
many of us are just going to
church. We are truly church-
going people. However, far too
many are not allowing the God
of their religion to control their
lives. Too many are just mes-
merized by the awe and power
of their leaders, or by the sen-
sational and emotionally-
packed services they attend
each week. Too often church is
just a parade of dress and hat
styles, or a grandiose show of



for our future

talents and entertainment. Too
many go to church to have their
emotions perked up rather than
having their intellect stimulated
and spiritual power renewed.
This is certainly not spirituality.
This is the type of "spirituali-
ty" that is destroying families
and nations. It is now the time
that we seek a more genuine
relationship) with our
Redeemer. It is now the time
that we get real in our spiritual
relationship with Jesus.

BALANCE ALL FOUR




Mie aa

alone is enough to t
our families and nation. This is
not so. We need a balance
among all four ingredients. We
can have all night prayer meet-
ings and candlelight vigils, but if
the power we are experiencing
is not motivating us to get into
action, it is not the right power.
True spiritual power frees us
from the attitude of indiffer-
ence. It allows us to get in touch
with our feelings and then pro-
pels us into unprecedented
action. True spiritual power
releases the gifts of the spirit in
us. It allows the individual tal-
ents.to shine. Not all may.be on
a committee, paint houses, con-

duct seminars, or march to
protest the high level of crime.
But all can speak out against
the evils by their vote. calling
the police when they have wit
nessed a violation of a law. and
not turning their heads when
they know of wrong-doing in
their church or community.
Dear reader, let us work
together to fix our nation. We
can do it. Let us join all powerful
forces of thinking, praying, feel-
ing, and doing to make a differ-
ence in nation. Now is the time
for action. Let our tears be seen
when pain is inflicted. Let our
-feet-be heard-marching against

.... the war.of-crime.Let-our hands

‘be heard using the hammers of

"justice of truth. Let our voices

be heard speaking loudly against
all wicked action. Let our hearts
and hands reach out to the incest
and rape victim and the abused
and robbery victim. Even so let
us reach out to the perpetrator,
helping him or her to change
and live a new life.

Let our whole body spring
into action in every home,
church, and community. Let's
fix our nation.

Opening lead — ten of clubs.

From the time declarer sees
dummy in today’s deal, his total
focus should be: How can I avoid
two spade losers?

There are two obvious possibili-
ties. The opposizig diamonds may be
divided 3-3, in which case a spade
can be discarded from dummy on the
fourth diamond, or the spade finesse
may succeed.

South should reason that if the
diamonds break evenly or the spade
finesse works, the slam is a certainty.
He should therefore proceed on the
assumption that both will go against

HOW many words of
four letters or more
can you make from the
letters shown here? In
making a word, each
letter may be used once
only. Each must contain

there must be at least
one nine-letter word. No
_plurals or verb forms

ending in “s”, no words
with initial capitals and no words with a hyphen or
apostrophe permitted. The first word of a phrase is
permitted (e.g. inkjet in inkjet printer).

the nine but has no safe return. If he
leads a spade, it goes into the A-Q,
and if he returns a club, South trumps
in dummy and sheds the queen of
spades.

The play described is what’s
known as a loser on a loser. South’s
six of spades, which is a loser in any
case, is disposed of at a propitious
moment to create a sure-fire endplay.
In this deal, declarer has to carefully
manage his club plays from dummy
so that West — who is marked with
the nine of clubs by his opening lead

— can be put on lead at precisely the

‘tight moment. 8

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Lady
Bird Johnson made a final trip
Friday to her beloved wild-
flower center, where friends and
family followed the former first
lady’s casket into a gallery fora
private memorial service.

About 180 people gathered
at the Lady Bird Johnson Wild-
flower Center, where her cof-
fin, draped in white cloth with
blue embroidery, rested in front
of a large portrait of Johnson
in a field of flowers. Nearby,
two vases held lavender-hued
bluebells, her favorite flower.

"We are here to let Lady Bird
go and to celebrate her glad
release,” said the Rev. Stephen
Kinney, former rector at John-
son’s home church, St. Barn-
abas Episcopal Church in Fred-
ericksburg. “This is our time to
say goodbye.”

The service for the 94-year-
old widow of former President
Lyndon Baines Johnson ended
with a song written for her.

Daughter Lynda Johnson
Robb watched from the front
row, swaying to the music and
smiling. She had walked in with
her sister, Luci Baines Johnson,

also wanted her casket to fol-

Early Friday afternoon, the
casket arrived at the museum
while bagpipes played “Amaz-
ing Grace.”

With a crowd of about 250
looking on, her daughters and
other family members followed
the casket into the library where
Johnson will lie in repose until
Saturday morning.

Mary Vidani, 57, was among
those waiting at the library.

Bahamas star comes second in Rome



of non-citizens
may have voted

@ By BRENT DEAN

' Tribune Staff Reporter

THOUSANDS of non-citi-
zens may have voted in the last,
and numerous other general

elections, through fraudulent

birth certificates registered with
the registrar general’ s office, it
has been claimed.

After The Tribune story yes-
terday on non-citizens voting
with search cards, new infor-
mation.was provided to the
paper, revealing that false affi-
davits, with search cards
attached, may have been
approved by the registrar gen-
eral’s department as de facto

birth certificates for Haitians, —

giving them the opportunity to
potentially register and vote.

For illegals who were not
born in the Bahamas, and wish
to obtain official documents
stating that there were, it is nec-
essary to file an affidavit with
the registrar general department
with “evidence” supporting the
claim.

Usually, The Tribune was
informed, these affidavits
require medical records, and
sworn admissions by the par-
ents or close relatives, support-
ing the claim that the child was
born in the Bahamas. However,
at least in the case of the docu-
ment seen by The Tribune,
inaccurate information is
accepted by the office as rea-
sonable proof of birth in this
country.

Despite widespread belief
that proof of citizenship is
required to vote, The Parlia-

mentary Elections Act, 1992,
allows first time voters to pro-
vide documents other than offi-
cial proof of citizenship when
registering.

Section 9(a) (ii) of the Act

states that first time voters are
required “to produce a passport
or a birth certificate or in lieu
thereof a baptismal certificate
or such reasonable evidence,
whether documentary or oth-
erwise, as the revising officer
shall consider necessary, to
prove that he is qualified to be,
and is not already, so regis-
tered.”

The Tribune was also
informed that among illegal
Haitian migrants there are actu-
al floating birth certificates.
What occurs, a source said, is
that one Haitian would obtain a
valid birth certificate, and copies

- would be made of that docu-

ment by other Haitians. This is
why, the source continued,
there are so many similar names
in the Haitian community — the
persons with the copied certifi-
cates would have to take the
name of the original certificate
holder.

“There should be no more
affidavits to register to vote,” a
source said, emphasizing that
only passports should be used
every time people come to vote.

Another source told The Tri-
bune on Thursday, that the ram-
pant use of this practice around
the election stopped the regis-
trar general’s office from issuing
search cards.

Former Marco City MP claims
200 people voted illegally

@ By DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport Reporter

FREEPORT -—- Senator
Pleasant Bridgewater, former
PLP MP, is alleging that almost
200 persons voted illegally in
the Marco City constituency in
the May 2 general election.

At a press conference held
on Friday at the PLP’s Marco
City campaign office on
Somerville Drive, Ms Bridge-
water said that she is confident

that she received the majority of

legitimate votes in Marco City.

“There is no person who vot- ~
ed legally in Marco City who is .

being challenged,” she said.
“The almost 200 persons that we
have are persons who voted and
who registered in Marco City
and ought not to have voted in
Marco City in the last election.”

The Progressive Liberal Par-
ty is contesting three seats, Blue

‘Hills, Pinewood and Marco

City. Documents have already
been filed to initiate legal pro-
ceedings in the election court.
The Free National Movement
won 23 seats to the PLP’s 18

seats. It is estimated that each
seat contested could cost the
losing party more than $100,000
in legal fees.

Senator Bridgewater hopes
that the matter can be dealt
with expeditiously.

“T don’t know exactly how
long it is going to take, but
based on what my lawyers have
said, they are expecting that the
matter should be dealt with by
the end of the year,” she said.

“It is important that this mat-
ter be dealt with expeditiously .

. because what we are alleging
is that there are people who are
sitting in parliament who ought
not to be sitting there; who
ought not to be representing the
people that they say they rep-
resent and that has to be dealt
with very quickly,” said the for-
mer MP.

Ms Bridgewater is claiming
that persons who did not live in
Marco City were registered and
voted in Marco City. She is also
alleging that non-Bahamian cit-
izens and persons who did not

Sea Hauler
victims ‘will
likely receive

settlement
under FNM’

@ By KARIN HERIG
Tribune Staff Reporter

THE Sea Hauler victims have
no legal claim of any kind on
government, but will likely still
receive some sort of financial
settlement from the FNM
administration, insider sources
claimed yesterday.

The Tribune has learned that
‘government’s legal counsel has
found that, despite government
having been found partially
responsible for the collision of
the Sea Hauler and the United
Star in 2003, it is not legally
bound to pay out any compen-
sation to the victims.

Four people lost their lives
and 25 others were injured
when the two vessels collided.
One was on its way to Nassau,
the other, overcrowded with
holidaymakers, was on its way
to a regatta in Cat Island four

_years ago. .

Commenting on. the matter
yesterday, Minister of Labour
and Maritime Affairs Dion
Foulkes-could only say that the
matter is currently before the
Attorney General’s Office.

“A legal review (is underway)
to find out exactly what the
legal position is, and as soon
that that is determined, the gov-
ernment will deal with it accord-
ingly,” the minister said.

However, a source close to
the situation claimed that an
early assessment of the Sea
Hauler victims’ legal situation
shows that government is not

- responsible for the survivor’s

financial compensation.

The source claimed that there
are plans for the new FNM gov-
ernment to intervene out of a
sense of fair play and justice,
and provide the victims with a
financial settlement...

Hope Town council accuses government
of ‘fascism’ over removal of members

& By BRENT DEAN
Tribune Staff Reporter

TROUBLE is brewing
between the Hope Town dis-
trict council and government,

with the council alleging that °

the removal of two of its mem-
bers is an act of “fascism”.

A press release was circulat-
ed yesterday under the local
government council’s banner
stating that the Ministry of
Local Government “fired” two
appointed members by direct
orders from the prime minis-
ter. However, The Tribune has
been unable to confirm
whether these men have been
dismissed.

The release, which an-

nounced a formal press confer-
ence on the matter for Thes-
day, said that Chief Councillor
Jeremy Sweeting now demands
answers from government for
this move which seeks to unseat
Chris and Joe Albury.

When contacted by The Tri-
bune yesterday about the con-
troversy, Mr Sweeting said he
did not wish to make the matter
political, however he thinks that
the dismissal of the two coun-
cillors is an act of “victimisa-
tion” by the current govern-
ment.

“It’s a group of persons in our
community, a small group I
might add, that have been trying
to discredit our accomplish-
ments since we were elected to

the Town Council since 2005.
All for political reasons, they
are trying to discredit our
accomplishments,” he said.

The press release also stated
that the Opposition has been
sympathetic about the issue and
that the PLP intends to raise
questions about the controversy
on the floor of Parliament.

When contacted by The Tri-
bune, Alfred Gray, PLP shadow
Minister for Local Government,
said he will raise this issue on
Wednesday in the House.

“It’s unfortunate that the new
government has sought to, with-
out considering the effect of
what they try to do, to try to
dismantle everything that the
former government has done.

And this is one example of rush
without thinking decision,” he
said. -

Mr Gray who was the former
minister of local government

- explained that he.appointed the

two men after the last local gov-
ernment election, because only
one person nominated for the
three vacancies that existed.
Firing these two people and
calling new elections, Mr Gray
added would be, ‘against the
law” and “shouldn't happen”.
“They want their FNM peo-
ple in place and the local gov-
ernment, that’s not a political
organisation,” Mr Gray empha-
sized.

Hotel is

& By KARIN HERIG
Tribune Staff Reporter

THE demolition of the Nas-
sau Beach Hotel, one of the
key elements in Baha Mar’s
plan for the transformation of
the Cable Beach strip, has been
pushed back yet again — this
time to January 2008.

The Nassau Beach was ini-
tially scheduled to be demol-
ished in June 2006, but the plan
was pushed back to September.
The new date for the closure
of that property is now set for
January 3, 2008, with the demo-
lition of the physical building
to take place shortly after.

Speaking with The Tribune
yesterday, Robert Sands, Baha
Mar’s senior vice-president of
administration and public
affairs, said that although the
timetable has changed, Baha
Mar still intends to go ahead
with all its plans.

Mr Sands explained that the
delay in tearing down the Nas-
sau Beach Hotel is due to two
circumstances — the change in
government and the current cli-
mate of the tourism industry.

“Nothing has changed in
terms of what we propose to
do, the timetable has been

demolition of the Nassau Beach Hotel

revised somewhat as we con-
tinue to negotiate our agree-
ment with the new government
of the Bahamas,” he said.

In addition to having to adjust
to anew government, Mr Sands
said that Baha Mar also did not

want to close down the Nassau
Beach Hotel at a time when the
Bahamas is in desperate in need
of more hotel rooms.

“If those additional rooms
were taken out at this time, a
significant number of rooms

would have been off the mar-
ket,” he said.

With visitor numbers down,
tourism officials are lamenting
the lack of hotel rooms in the
country.

Tourism director general

Demolition of Nassau Beach |
delayed yet again |

Vernice Walkine earlier this
month said that the Bahamas
still has nowhere near the hotel
rooms that are needed to
attract more visitors.

Reduction

By the end of this year, Mrs
Walkine said, the overall reduc-
tion in available hotel rooms
for the Bahamas is expected to
exceed 10 per cent.

Mr Sands yesterday said that
the Cable Beach resorts will be
able to offer a significant num-
ber of reopened hotel rooms
by December of this year.

“We’re currently working on
refurbishing 300 rooms at the
Wyndham (Nassau Resort and
Crystal Palace Casino). They
come back online by mid-
December 2007, along with the
remaining 350 rooms at the
(new Sheraton), which will give
us two of our properties almost
totally renovated in time for
the winter season,” he said.

Mr Sands said that none of
the employees at.the Nassau
Beach Hotel will be laid off,

but will instead be redeployed ©

to the other Baha Mar proper-
ties.

A CROOKED Island resi-
dent has complained that locals
have had difficulty doing any
banking because there is no one
regularly manning the local post
office.

The post office, which acts as
a bank for all those on the
island, has been open for only
one day this week, said the irate
shop owner.

"That's the main place," she
said. "If you need money,
you've got to go to the post

office, if you want to send a tele-
graph, you've got to go to the
post office, if people send you
money, you've got to go the
post office — and here it is: noth-
ing happening! The place is
closed down!"

Member of Parliament for
the MICAL constituency,
Alfred Gray, claims the closure
is a direct result of government
incompetence. _

He said the Ingraham gov-
ernment has failed to appoint
a new administrator on the
island following the July 2

retirement of the former admin- .

istrator, who had responsibili-
ty for the post office.
According to the resident, the
female staff member who is nor-
mally present to carry out trans-
actions for islanders has been
away from her post, and a tem-
porary replacement brought in
from Acklins, apparently to
work for a few days this week,
never showed.
The predicament has left
some islanders in a financial
bind, unable to fulfill certain
monetary obligations, or take
out any money in emergencics.
The shop owner said she was

driven to report the matter
after having to explain to
some of her suppliers, includ-
ing water company Chelsea's
Choice, that she would be
unable to pay money owed at
the scheduled time.

"I had to tell them to hold
on for me 'til Monday when
the lady comes back," said the
shop owner. "This needs to be
stopped!"

Several suppliers expressed
surprise and concern at the
situation, and the local said
that she feels the only way the
matter_will be addressed is if
"the whole country knows."

Sheaid some residents
have called the postmaster in
Nassau about their difficulties,
but to no avail. The problem
has flared up intermittently
over a period of years, she
added.

The resident is calling for
the issue to be addressed
immediately, and claims that
there should be more than
one staff member allocated to
the post office to cater to the
400 residents.

Yesterday, Mr Gray said
that he is deeply disturbed by
the matter and intends to

bring it up in parliament on
Wednesday.

He claims that the failure . ie

of the government to ensure

there is an administrator on | }

the island is particularly
galling in light of the fact that
three out island administra-
tors have been transferred to
Nassau to “sit down" and do
nothing.

This move is an act of vic-
timisation, he claims, carried
out because these administra-
tors voted for the PLP in the
May 2 election.

In the meantime, the
Ragged Island administrator
is fulfilling duties on both
islands, but simply "can't be
in two places at one time,"
said Mr Gray.

Attempts to reach the post-
master general yesterday were
unsuccessful as several phone
lines were either busy or nev-
er.answered.

Minister of Local Govern-
ment Sidney Collie was said
to be out of office all day.

Efforts to reach Minister of
State for Finance Zhivargo
Laing, who has responsibility

for post offices and savings . i

banks, were also unsuccessful.

Bl HAVANA



ROMAN Catholic bishops
from across Latin America’
released a blueprint Wednes-’
day on how they plan to reverse
the exodus of members in the’
region to evangelical Protestant
churches, according to Associ-
ated Press.

To slow the tide of defectors,
the 136-page declaration said’
Catholic leaders must create “a-
church full of evangelical force '
and capability, that is dynamic
enough to win over members
who have let their faith lapse. It
said it must also inspire anew
those who might consider jump--
ing to another religion. ;

The bishops also criticized’
everyday Catholics, expressing
concern about the rise of “indi--
vidualism and a mentality of rel-'
ativism in ethics and religion,” ’
and denounced homosexuality.:

The declaration was posted
on the Web site of the Latin-
American Bishops’ Conference !
while 68 of its cardinals, priests,"

special guests met behind closed’

Youth Is

FREEPORT - A young man
was arraigned in Freeport Mag-
istrate’s Court on drug posses-
sion charges on Thursday.

Travis Johnson, a 21-year-old
resident of Peridot Place, Coral
Garden, appeared before Act-
ing Deputy Chief Magistrate
Helen Jones in court three.

It is alleged that on July 10
the accused was found in pos-
session of four packages con-
taining six ounces of marijuana
and another package with 20
grams of cocaine.

Johnson pleaded not guilty
to charges of possessing a quan-
tity of dangerous drugs with
intent to supply them to anoth-
er.

The accused was represent-
ed by attorney Brian Hanna.
He was remanded to Fox Hill
Prison until the November 1,
when his trial is due to begin.

Phillip Coakley, 29, of Gren-
fell Avenue, was also arraigned
before Acting Deputy Chief
Magistrate Jones. He appeared
on firearm and ammunition
possession charges.

It is alleged that on July 11,
Coakley was found in posses-

.sion of a black .45 Ruger semi-
automatic pistol, loaded with
six bullets.

Coakley was also represented
by Brian Hanna.

He pleaded not guilty to the
charges. The case was
adjourned to October 29. He
was granted $6,000 bail.



Schwarzenegger
urges more
co-operation on
environment

@ MIAMI

CALIFORNIA Governor
Arnold Schwarzenegger urged
US states Friday to pressure
Washington to do more to pre-
vent climate change, discount-
ing the argument that protecting
the environment hurts the econ-
omy, according to Associated
Press.

Speaking at a summit orga-
nized by Republican Florida
Governor Charlie Crist,
Schwarzenegger said the cli-
mate change issue should not
be political and is one that con-
servatives also must embrace.

“There is no Democratic
planet Earth. There is no
Republican planet Earth.
There’s just a planet Earth and
we all have a responsibility to
take care of it,” Schwarzeneg-
ger, a Republican, told the
crowd of 600.

Crist called the two-day sum-
mit to examine the effects of
climate change and discuss
strategies for reducing green-
house gases. He concluded the
summit Friday by signing orders
that will require state agencies
to conserve energy and power
companies to use more renew-
able energy.

Crist also signed agreements
with the United Kingdom and
Germany to co-operate on
efforts to stop climate change,
including sharing technology
and information.

During his speech,
Schwarzenegger acknowledged
the perception that Republicans
have not been as strong on envi-
ronmental issues.

“Three-and-a-half years ago
when I ran for governor, I had
environmental protesters fol-
lowing me around saying ‘He’s
a Republican! Please stop!
Don’t vote for him! He’s going
to destroy the environment!”
Schwarzenegger said.

California has since become a
‘leader in promoting strategies
for reducing carbon dioxide
emissions, which are blamed for
causing the planet’s tempera-
tures to rise. He noted the
state’s use of solar energy and
hydrogen fuel and its push for
more stringent emissions stan-
dards for vehicles.

“We have proven that
Republicans can, in fact protect
the environment,” he said.

US President George W
Bush refused to join the 1997
Kyoto Protocol, which requires
developed countries to reduce
their carbon dioxide emissions
to 5 per cent below 1990 levels
by 2012.

California has been battling
the federal Environmental Pro-
tection Agency for two years to
get permission to implement a
state law that would require
automakers to reduce green-
house gas emissions by 25 per-
cent from cars and 18 percent
from sport utility vehicles by
the 2009 model year.

A STRAW vendor has come
forward to allege that some of
her colleagues are renting out
their market stalls to illegal
immigrants, to the disgruntle-
tment of other Bahamian ven-
clors.

According to the vendor,
who wished to remain anony-
nious, the practice is known to
government officials with
responsibility for the Straw
Market but they have done
nothing about it.

She alleges to have seen per-
sons take bribes “under the
table” from the illegal immi-
grants in return for allowing
them to remain.

“Many other people like me
feel this way but they just won't
stand up," said the vendor.

LOCAL NEWS

Straw market vendor claims
‘stalls being let to immigrants

“But I’m tired of it.”

She claims that an average
going price for a stall is
$1,200 for the whole year.
Twelve to 14 stalls are cur-
rently being used in this way,
after being rented out by dis-
interested owners, she esti-
mated.

She claims that "most" of
those working the hired stalls
are of Haitian or Jamaican
descent, and questions whether
they have legal status.

“When immigration comes
they haul tail out of the mar-
ket,” she said.

' The vendor claims that the
alleged presence of these
immigrants is unfair to
Bahamians who work in the
market.

“Bahamian straw vendors
cannot go into a foreign coun-
try and do the injustices that

said, adding that “something

must be done” to stop the prac-
tice, which threatens the
“bread and butter” of many
vendors.

According to the sales-
woman, stall owners claim that
some of those to whom they
rent their stalls are merely
“workers” selling wares for
them, and deny that they have
actually handed over the use
of the stall to that person for a
fee.

The vendor’s complaints
come at a time when the ques-
tion of whether — or to where —
the straw vendors will be relo-
cated until the new straw mar-
ket is constructed, remains
unresolved.

Attempts to reach Minister
of Works Earl Deveaux yes-
terday were unsuccessful and
messages were not returned up
to press time.

FREEPORT - An Ameri-

More terrorist attacks in UK forecast

LONDON — A former British intelligence
chief has warned that terrorists will mount
another successful attack on Britain, despite
their failure to carry out recent car bombings
in London and Glasgow, Scotland.

Stella Rimmington, who led the domestic
intelligence agency MI5 from 1992 to 1996,
also said in an interview published Friday that,
unlike Prime Minister Gordon Brown and his
predecessor, Tony Blair, she believed that
Britain’s military role in Iraq has inspired
young men to join terrorist plots against the
United Kingdom.

Five suspects are being questioned over the
three attempted attacks late last month in
London’s entertainment district and at Glas-
gow airport. All three makeshift car bombs
failed to detonate.

“JT don’t think we should take a great deal of
comfort from the fact that these latest bombs
were botched,” Rimmington told the Daily
Mail newspaper. “Creating homemade explo-
sives is difficult and they will get it wrong, but
they will get it right as well.”

The only man charged is Bilal Abdullah, a
27-year-old British-born doctor raised in Iraq
who is accused of conspiring to cause explo-
sions.

Brown said Wednesday he believed mili-
tary action in Iraq and Afghanistan had no

impact on the threat to Britain from terrorism,
saying the country would be at risk in any
case.

No nation could be secure when al-Qaida
linked terrorists are “determined to practice
carnage across the world,” Brown said.

Rimmington acknowledged that al-Qaida
attacks predated the Iraq and Afghanistan
conflicts, but said the significance of the wars
should not be played down.

’ “Terrorism was around from this source
before we went into Iraq or Afghanistan,” she
told the newspaper. “But there is no doubt it
has acted as a recruiting sergeant for a lot of
these young men because of this sense of griev-
ance about foreign policy.”

“If we had not gone to war I sense we would
have had some of this, but not at the same
level,” she added.

MI5 head Jonathan Evans has said agents
are tracking at least 30 plots within Britain
and around 1,600 suspected terrorists.

Al-Qaida is stepping up its efforts to sneak
terror operatives into the United States and
has acquired most of the capabilities it needs
to strike there as well, according to a new U.S.
intelligence assessment that government offi-
cials described to The Associated Press on
condition of anonymity because the report
has not been finalized.

Another China syndrome

Government officials in China have tried
to portray the execution of Zheng Xiaoyu,
former head of that country’s State Food and
Drug Administration, as an effective cure for
the corruption behind the export of dangerous
and sometimes deadly food products and med-
ications, But the rot is systemic. It can hardly
be excised by sentencing a high-profile official
to death.

While it may be a positive sign that the
Communist Party has acknowledged China’s
failures to regulate food and drug safety, this
is the least that could be expected. After all, a
long list of Chinese products have recently
caused sickness and death in North and South
America and in Asia. Among them are tooth-
paste, fish and other seafood, pet food, toys,
and various medicines. If everything made in
China can be considered to share the same
brand name, that brand has suffered a very
costly blow to its reputation.

Perhaps the most revealing signs of just how
sensitive the government has become to inter-
national suspicions about the unreliability of
Chinese products are the official assurances it
has issued about the food to be served to ath-
letes coming to Beijing next year for the sum-

‘mer Olympic games. “All the procedures
involving Olympic food, including produc-
tion, processing, packaging, storing, and trans-
porting will be closely monitored,” an official

HEPBURN and SEWELL HIGGS of the island of New Providence, the

The special care taken for food at the
Olympics will do no more to clean out the
corruption in China, however, than the dra-
conian punishments meted out to a few promi-
nent bribe-taking officials. Thus far, there has
been no government effort to identify, prose-
cute, and punish the bribe-givers. Indeed, after
a Chinese newspaper referred by name to
some of the companies allegedly doing the
bribing, China’s Central Propaganda Depart-

ment told two major Chinese Internet por-.

tals to remove the article from their sites. The
offending article vanished the same day.

This governmental compulsion to control
information goes to the core of China’s cor-
ruption syndrome. Where a single political
party maintains a monopoly on power, the
only reforms that can be tolerated are those
that suit the ruling party’s interests.

Since the Communist Party elites still feel
threatened by a free press, they go on refusing
to let in the cleansing sunshine of criticism.

China was able to export products that
killed dozens of people not because of one
corrupt official but because of its one-party
system, its lack of a truly free press, and its sav-
age style of unregulated capitalism.

What we
can all do to
cut crime

EDITOR, The Tribune.

THE role and function of
prosecution in our criminal
justice system demands
immediate attention by our
government. Our Courts are
in shambles and due to very
good work by our Police
Force the backlog of cases
continue to escalate, result-

' ing in persons accused of very

serious crimes being given
bail after years in prison with-
out trial. The Police suspect
that some of these persons on
bail may be responsible for
any number of the crimes of
violence perpetrated against
our citizens. For years I have
complained through letters to
the press of what I saw as a
growing problem in the
courts. The situation during
the Sir Lynden Pindling era,
continued into the Hubert
Ingraham and the Perry
Christie era. In recent years
the situation worsened.

Public prosecution is an
important component in our
criminal justice system. Pros-
ecution of an offender is the
duty of the Police, the Attor-
ney General (Director of Pub-
lic Prosecutions) and the
Courts (Magistrate and
Supreme Courts). The Direc-
tor of Public Prosecution is on
the staff of the Attorney Gen-
eral. He/she is a public ser-
vant, who conducts prosecu-
tions on behalf of the State.
He is provided with an ade-
quate number of legal staff to
carry out the functions. Police
Prosecutors have always car-
ried this function in the Mag-
istrates’ Courts, witha great
measure. of success.

While it is the responsibility
of prosecutors to try and
secure convictions, they need
not be overwhelmingly con-
cerned with the outcome of
the trial. They are officers of
the courts and are required to
present a truthful picture
before the courts. Even
though they appear on behalf
of the State, it is equally their
duty to see that accused per-
sons do not suffer in an unfair
and unethical manner. They
have to be truthful and impar-
tial so that even the accused
persons receive justice.

Our courts generally believe
in the individualisation of sen-
tences, which could depend
on the seriousness of the
crime, the age of the accused,

to appear to be untruthful and
dishonest as they present their
facts to the jury.

As a result good Police
work goes down the drain
when persons, if tried ‘earlier
may have been convicted. In
addition to the foregoing it is
very well known that witness-
es have disappearecl, been
threatened or bribed not to
appear or to appear and give
contrary evidence in the
courts.

It is said, that; “conumunity
Safety is everybody’s respon-
sibility and Crime Prevention
is everyone's business.” I sub-
mit that the condition of our
courts has a direct affect on
the present crime trend in our
country. Communities must
lobby to get this serious situa-

tion addressed with some

urgency.

The Police cannot. prevent
murders. Their job is'to inves-
tigate and arrest the offend-
ers. The murderer k:nows his
victim, selects the weapon, the
time date and place.. This
information is not piivy to the
Police. J Edgar Hoover, the
famous FBI Director once
said, that the Police are pow-
erless to prevent murders and
he used as his example the
assassinations of US Presi-
dents with well trained Secret
Service personnel around
then.

In a review of the motives
for most of our murders in
The Bahamas I have found
that in many instances the vic-
tims could have taken some
precautionary measures or

selves. Following are my rec-
ommendations to potential
victims: :

e Anger management
appears to be non-existent in
our country. Do not get into
arguments. Walk away rapid-
ly. Remember what used to
be fist fights are now knives
and guns.

¢ You are living with a hus- »

band or sweetheart, who bru-
talises you. One day his vio-
lence against you will end in
your death. Leave him. Get a
Court Order for him to stay
away from you.

e Parents can talk to their
children, who are in gangs.
Their future is bleak. Death

can occur at any time. It may °
be necessary to send them '

away for a while. Many of our
youthful victims are reported-
ly members of gangs.

e There are women in our

country, who are provided for ;

by men, who pay the rent,
purchase food and clothing,
etc. Many of these men are
very jealous and are violent.
Men should stay away from
these women. Their lives are

in danger when they date and: °-

have affairs with such women.

¢ If you borrow money from »
the Drug Lord. Pay him or -

leave the country until you
can. The same applies if you

double-cross him in any deal -

or agreement.

e If you steal the Drug Lord
drugs or money. Leave town.
Disappear. Do not date the
Drug Lord's woman.

e Important witnesses in
serious crime cases must be
very alert. Report suspicious

‘ persons and incidents to the

Police. Request: Witness, Pro-
tection.’

e If you are a victim of an
armed robbery. Do what the

eb alae a

bandit says. Don’t be a dead .

hero. Use your observation
and senses, that may assist in
identification later.

e We must be aware that
many of the murders commit-
ted in our country have been
what the Americans call “hit
men”. The paid assassins
could be from outside The
Bahamas.

Finally, help your Police
Force to protect you from
harm.

AFTER a series of “sense-
less” killings, the rapid rise in
the murder rate has Bahamians
crying out that crime has spi-
raled out of control — and many
are looking to the Royal
Bahamas Police Force for
answers.

As reported by The Tribune,
an 18-year-old man was stabbed
to death on Thursday night,
becoming the country’s 44th
murder victim for the year.

On Friday, the victim’s fami-
ly positively identified the body
as.that of Elima Souffrant, a
resident of Farrington Read.

LOCAL NEWS

Need for community involvment
stressed as murder rate rises

According to a statement
released by Assistant Superin-
tendent Walter Evans, Mr Souf-
frant was walking along Mead-
ow Street around 8pm on

Thursday night, in the vicinity of

Parker Street, when he was
reportedly approached by two
men who stabbed him multiple
times.

Mr Evans added that police
are actively looking for the
assailants, and by the day’s end
hope to have a suspect in cus-
tody.

Reports have surfaced that
former Minister of Health, Dr
Bernard Nottage, attempted to
revive the victim at the scene

of the crime. However, The Tri-
bune could not reach Dr Not-
tage for verification or comment
up to press time.

Concern

According to Royal Bahamas
Police Force (RBPF) statistics,
prior to Thursday’s homicide,
70 per cent of murder victims
in the first half of 2007 were
men between the ages 18 and
35:

While this is an “area of
growing concern” for the police
force, officials at the RBPF
insist stronger community

involvement needs to occur in
order to combat this “alarming”
trend.

Mr Evans maintains that
while the RBPF is “doing every-
thing they can” to fight the war
on crime, they need assistance
from the public to combat all
social ills.

“It camt just is the police, it
must be a holistic approach
between the [RBPF] and the
community. The police are
doing all they can do, but it can-

. not be done alone. The com-

munity must be a part of the
approach,” Mr Evans told The
Tribune on Friday morning. ,

He added that the police

force has certain measures in
place to work within communi-
ties in the fight against crime.

“Our community relations
department has consistent and
ongoing initiatives, and these
programmes are very much
alive to reach out and try to
reform some of these issues
going on in the country,”*Mr
Evans said.

Despite these initiatives, the
serious crime rate is on a steady
incline. And according to the
present murder rate, the coun-
try is on track to reach an
unprecedented count of 80
homicides before the end of the
year.

@ By MARK HUMES

BRINGING blessings and
warm regards from the Jewish
community at large, Rabbis
Chaim Zaklos and Mendel
Kalmenson made a stopover
visit to Grand Bahama and New
Providence to meet with local

‘members of the Jewish com-

munity.

“Even though, geographical-
ly, we are divided from the oth-
er Jewish communities,” said
Rabbi Zaklos, “we still care

about them and pray for their
well-being and welfare.”

The Rabbis said that a major
goal of their organisation,
Chabad Lubavitch, is to try and
take care of the spiritual and,
whenever possible, physical
needs of members of Jewish
communities.

Headed by Rabbi M M
Schneersohn, the Chabad
Lubavitch organisation has 170
divinity students distributed
throughout North and South
America, the Caribbean and

Europe.

Saying that they are "some-
what like a mobile Judaic cen-
tre," the Rabbis noted that they
are here to bring blessing and
protection to the homes of their
Jewish followers in the
Bahamas.

“It is our objective to light
the Jewish spark that is found in
every Jew,” said Rabbi Kalmen-
son. “We want to show the
beauty of Judaism. We want to
show that its practice is not lim-
ited to living in large Jewish

communities like Israel and
back in New York. It can be
seen no matter where you are
world over."

The Rabbi went on to say
that his organisation tries to
enhance and help Jews living
outside of the larger communi-

_ ty to fulfill their needs.

“We highlight and focus on
Jewish unity and finding a
common denominator, as
opposed to that which
divides," Rabbi Zaklos told
The Tribune. "No matter your

Rabbis arrive to meet with Jewish community

upbringing, knowledge, your
observance level, we are all
one people.: We are trying to
strip away the labels of differ-
ence and trying to find a point
of common ground where we
could unite as one people,
especially now days.

As a part of their community
building effort while in New
Providence, the two hosted a
Shabbat dinner and service.

For further information,
interested persons are asked to

RECOGNISING the seri-
ousness of the illness and the
cost factor involved in managing
it, Scotiabank purchased a six-
month supply of the medication
for several diabetic children.

Debra Wood, senior manager
of marketing and public rela-
tions at Scotiabank, said that
living with diabetes is difficult
for anyone, but especially for
young children.

“At Scotiabank, we recognise
that much of the burden falls
on the parents who are faced
with ensuring that their children
have the medication needed to
live.

“Hence, we demonstrated our
good corporate citizenship by
purchasing insulin, lancets, test
strips and daily blood sugar
testers for the children, which
will help relieve some of the
financial burden that many of

_ their parents face. Helping those

in need, especially children is an
essential part of the way we do
business at Scotiabank.”

Accepting the gift on some
of the children’s behalf were
founding members of the
Bahamas Diabetic Association
and mothers of diabetic chil-
dren Diana Pinder and Ethel
Knowles.

They were joined by three of

- the children — Timia Simms,

Pycewell Pageot and Naomi
Brown.

Ms Pinder said: “It was just

bank would be making such a
donation, and I know it means

TRANSFORMERS

Starring: Shia LaBeouf,
Megan Fox

WHEN you see director
Michael Bay’s name attached
to a movie, you know what
you’re in for. Bad Boys I & I,
Armageddon and, most recent-
ly, The Island have all show-
cased his talents for filling the
screen with big, shiny cars and
helicopters . . . Then blowing
them up.

' So if you’re hoping fora
change of direction with Trans-
formers — which features two
hours of giant robots smashing
things to pieces — you may be
disappointed.

Based loosely on the eight-
jes’ toys and cartoons of the
same name, the film opens with
a monologue about a war on a
distant planet which has result-
ed in two factions of robots
(which can “transform” from
machine to vehicle) searching
for a giant, life-giving cube that
has arrived on earth. Or some-
thing. Sound ridiculous? You
ain’t heard nothing yet: A high
school _ teenager,
(LeBeouf), soon becomes the
target of these alien machines
thanks to a pair of spectacles
that belonged to his late adven-
turer grandfather whick he’s

trying to sellon eBay! I kid you

not.

Meanwhile, US soldiers
based in the Middle East find
themselves stomped on by a
transformer in the desert and
in combat against a huge met-
al scorpion - understandably
raising government concerns
that something odd is going
on.

These and several other silly
plot threads, finally converge in
an epic showdown between
good and evil on the streets of

Supt Rahming said that the
Police Department on Grand

HEALTH and Social Devel-
opment Minister Dr Hubert
Minnis launched a fresh appeal
to Bahamians to live healthier
lifestyles as more and more
deaths in the country are result-
ing from chronic, non-commu-
nicable diseases.

“These diseases, such as dia-
betes, high blood pressure,
coronary heart disease and can-
cer account for approximately
over 50 per cent of the deaths in
this country and a contributory
factor is the way we presently
live,” Dr Minnis said.

He was speaking on Thurs-
day at the official opening the
Health and Wellness exhibition
at the Mall.at Marathon on
Thursday morning.

“Hence, in order to reduce
the level of non-communicable
diseases we need to make some
lifestyle changes,” said Dr Min-
nis.

A number of health exhibits
outlining the dangers of smok-
ing, high blood pressure and
dental diseases were on display
at the mall. Many persons col-
lected health brochures and
stopped to view the numerous
pictures on display.

the theme: ‘Healthy body, mind
and heart, let's do our part.’

‘The Ministry of Health and
Social Development in con-
junction with the Public Hospi-
tals Authority, private health
organisations, tion-governmen-
tal organisations and the media
committed to the number of
activities in an effort to decrease
the mortality rate of Bahami-
ans who die of chronic, non-

Minnis said.

He said that the link between
these diseases and the death
rate has “strengthened our
resolve to ensure that the gen-
eral public is fully aware of the
tremendous benefits of adopt-
ing healthy lifestyles."

One way toward achieving
that end is through education,

Who can succeed Perry Christie?

HE Progressive Liber-

al Party’s convention in
November could be the site of
Nassau’s newest fight club as a
political mélée is anticipated as
several eager politicians are
expected to be jockeying for the
posts of leader and deputy
leader.

As the debate continues
about former Prime Minister
Perry Christie’s future as party
leader, it is without question
that the time has come for Mr
Christie to step down. After
serving a single term, Mr
Christie’s party suffered a crush-
ing defeat and seemingly has
yet to recover from their elec-

tion thumping.

During the five years that he
led the country, Mr Christie was
accused of indecision and
seemed incapable of making
decisions without a multitude
of opinions. He was at the van-
guard of a unruly Cabinet and a
government that was entangled
in allegations of corruption.
Although the former PM
promised accountability, trans-
parency and a strict adherence
to his much-hyped Code of
Ethics, he seemingly turned a
blind eye to the scandals and
the accusations of nasty goings-
on that plagued his administra-
tion.

While Mr Christie was a fan-
cy talker (little action) who
dithered for a considerable pro-

portion of his term, I do credit
him with maintaining a stable
economy, initiating the Urban
Renewal Programme that he
championed to provide oppor-
tunities for inner city residents
and discourage crime, his deci-
sion to revitalize historic Nassau
and relocate the ports, the
establishment of the Clifton
Heritage Park and his efforts to
attract foreign investors/capital
to our shores.



After serving a
single term, Mr
Christie’s party
suffered a
crushing defeat
and seemingly
has yet to
recover from
their election
thumping.



With that said, as with most
former leaders of countries that
suffer election defeats, Mr
Christie must begin grooming
potential successors and should
step down in the coming
months. In Canada, which is
also a parliamentary democracy

that adheres to the statutes of
the Westminster system, when
the Liberal party was ousted,
former Prime Minister Paul
Martin not only relinquished his
post as parliamentary leader,
but also resigned as party
leader. Martin’s resignation
came within two months of his
party’s defeat.

Who will lead the PLP after
Mr Christie’s departure?

kK nowledgeable sources
say that the main con-

tenders for the leadership of the
PLP are Dr Bernard Nottage,
Obie Wilchcombe, Allyson
Maynard-Gibson, and to a less-
er extent Fred Mitchell and
Vincent Peet.

Although Cynthia ‘Mother’
Pratt is currently the party’s
deputy leader, it is highly
unlikely that she would throw
her hat into a leadership rum-
ble.

Former Health Minister Dr
Bernard Nottage is a top con-
tender in a potential leadership
face-off. Dr Nottage, who is also
seen as a protégé of the late Sir

Lynden Pindling, is a veteran
politician who is known as an
adept coordinator and well-
known to the rank and file of
his party.

Dr Nottage’s main opposi-
tion, however, is expected to
come from those elements with-
in his party that do not regard
him as a party loyalist, particu-
larly since he left, led his own
party and vociferously chastised
the PLP, then abandoned his
CDR party and crept back to
the PLP at the party’s 2005 con-
vention. Another shortcoming
that could hinder Nottage’s
ascension to the leadership post
is his age (senior citizen), as
many party stalwarts may now
be seeking a youthful leader
who would not only be able to
lead the party in the interim but
possibly for another 10-15 years.

Dr Nottage has the experi-
ence and talent, but will the par-
ty’s delegates and young turks
accept him?

Obie Wilchcombe, a two
term MP, is considered a most
formidable candidate to be
leader. Mr Wilchcombe is well-
liked among party delegates,
has experience in both the

House of Assembly and the
Senate and is youthful and quite
charismatic. A leadership con-
frontation between Nottage and
Wilchcombe could cause a
splinter within the PLP.

frontline politics as a member of
the PLP. Although Mrs Gibson
is a viable contender, she is seen
as potentially divisive, appears
to be pompous and hot-head-
ed and is not seen as the most
engaging or affable challenger.
Recently, Mrs Gibson has been

heavily criticized for what
appeared to be inane ullerances
made in an attempt to filibuster

during the budget debate tn the
Senate. After an electoral
spanking in the Pinewood con
stituency, Mrs Gibson ts said to

leadership race. Mr Peet has

Andros although bets were
against him. While he has been
embroiled in scandal, he (01
Alfred Gray, if he enters) can
be the sleeper candidate that
could threaten the chances of
those stronger contenders if he
is simply counted out.

While the most probable
outcome of a PLP leadership
fight may likely result in Obie
Wilchcombe and Bernard Not-
tage in the roles of leader and
deputy leader, one thing ts tor

@ By BARRINGTON BRENNEN

Hee Help! Help!
Everywhere you turn,

people are crying "help!"

It's not only cries from
wounds or broken bones caused
by auto accidents. It is not just
cries from painful robberies
experienced the night before.
It is the loud cries from wound-
ed and hurting families who feel
trapped, alienated, confused
and powerless. It is the cries
from tired parents; love hungry
teenagers, and angry spouses.
It is the cries from exhausted

parents: who.are. just about.to.... ,

; Aree: important
ingredient for change

give up on their troublesome,
drug-crazed teenagers.

It is the cries from school
teachers whose skills seem inept
against the defiant and violent
behaviour of the disrespectful

‘students. It is the crises from vic-

tims of rape, robbery, abuse, and

theft. It is the cries from families

of murdered individuals.

There are even more cries
coming from behind prison
walls where many feel the pain
of rejection. The rejection of
their parents and peers early in
their lives led them to lives of
hurting others just to get even.
It is true that not all who need
help are crying. These tearless
citizens are numbed by either
the prolonged, painful journey
of life they have experienced,

or they were never truly taught _

right from wrong. They have no
idea they are in a mess.

People are crying because
they do not know what to do.
Some are crying because deep
down inside they know they
have placed themselves in the
vicious cycle of pain and plea-
sure, ups and downs. Their only
knowledge of how to relieve the
pain or how to get out of the
mess isn't working. The truth is
most people are crying because
they have been too stubborn to
learn, too stubborn to change,
and too proud to admit their
faults. They have locked them-
selves as it seems in a bottomless
pit of shameful deceits where
the slippery walls of ignorance
and pride surround them pre-
venting any attempt to get out..

How can we fix this? Is their
hope for our families? Is there
hope ‘for our nation? Yes there
is hope, but only after we apply
the following basic four ingre-
dients.

BRAIN POWER

o fix our families and

nation we first need
lots of brain power. Everyone
has a brain but too many are
lacking the mental energy to do
something about what is wrong.
Too many are lacking the intel-
lect, knowledge and ethos that
are so greatly needed at this
time in our nation. Historically
it seems that we are more
famous for just standing by and
"leaving it alone" or not prob-
ing deeply into the reasons for
our nation’s problems. Or is it
we are not really aware that
there is a problem? I can hear
many shouting "What is
wrong?" or "If it isn't broken
don't fix it."

Too long have we stood on
the side and let negative tradi-
tions and so-called cultural
norms take control of our soci-
ety. Every citizen can develop
this brain power. Having the
brain power means that we are
willing to think, change, feel and
then act. Having the brain
means that we are willing to say
that something is wrong. Having
the brain power means that we
are not sleeping but wide awake
and have not allowed the pain
around us to sap us or own abil-
ity to think and reason.

EMOTIONAL POWER

is the ability to feel the pain that
surrounds us. It is allowing our-
selves to get angry at what is
wrong in our society. Francis
Shaffer in his book "A Time for
Anger — the Myth of Neutral-
ity" reminds us that if there is
anyone who-should be angry
and do something about the ills
in the society it is the Christian.

’ How can we sit down'like cold,

insensitive creatures and do not
allow ourselves to be touched
by the pain of others? How can

we not shed tears over the loss

of innocent lives? How can we



Too long have
we stood on the
side and let
negative
traditions and
so-called
cultural norms
take control of
our society.



not weep over the repeated sex-
ual molestations of innocent
toddlers by persons whom they
should trust? How can we not
cry over the teenage girl preg-
nant with her third child and
dying of AIDS? How can we
not feel the pain of a 15-year-
old boy who is raped by his
uncle? How can we not get
angry at the husband who
leaves his faithful wife for
another woman, gets her preg-
nant, and expects his wife to
take care of the baby? How can
we not get angry when visiting
pastors’ wives from abroad are
solicited for sex by make-
believe good-natured men who
are really male prostitutes?
How can we not get emotional
when married men enjoy being
seduced in a public night club
by female lap dancers? How
can we not get angry when
mothers leave their children at
home while they go out all night
on the town having multiple sex
partners?

We must feel it. Until we are
able to feel the pain and allow
our emotions to get involved,
we will not be able to fix the
problem. We need the intellect
so badly, but we also need the
feelings. When we have intel-

YOUR



lect (brain power) without feel-
ings we have a cold family or
society. Let's start feeling.

MUSCLE POWER

fter utilizing our brain °
and emotional pow-
ers we must now.

have the muscle power. We can-
not just talk and cry about the
problem, we must get up and
do something about it. Having
the muscle power means that
after going through the mental
processes of reasoning trom
cause to effect, and allowing
ourselves to feel, we now put
into action what has been dis-
cussed. In truth when we allow
ourselves to honestly think and
feel we create an energy to get
up and go. It calls for everyone
doing their part, no matter how
small. We cannot be satisfied
being labelled lazy or docile.
Muscle power does not only
mean marching against crime
or attending important planning
meetings. It is more important-
ly participating in the process
of change. Having the muscle
power means we will leave our
prayer meetings empowered to
act. We must remember not
doing a thing after we finish
praying makes our prayer null
and void. We need praying peo-
ple who can work. This brings
me to the next ingredient.

SPIRITUAL POWER

W hat is greatly need-
ed today is the spir-

itual power to change our
nation. The forces of evil are
surrounding and weakening us.
Having spiritual powerymeans
that we are relying on God to
give us the wisdom and strength
to make the change first in our
own lives and then in the live of
others. It is admitting that the
evil forces are too great to bat-
tle alone. The Apostle Paul says
in Ephesians 6:10-13. (New Liv-
ing Translation):

10. "A final word: Be strong
with the Lord's mighty power.
11. Put on all of God's armour
so that you will be able to stand
firm against all strategies and
tricks of the Devil. 12. For we
are not fighting against people
made of flesh and blood, but
against the evil rulers and
authorities of the unseen world,
against those mighty powers of
darkness who rule this world,
and against wicked spirits in the

‘heavenly realms. 13. Use every

piece of God's armor to resist
the enemy in the time of evil, so
that after the battle you will still
be standing firm.

“Unless we allow the trans-
forming power of the Holy Spir-
it to take control of our lives,
another powerful force
(although not as powerful) will
overwhelm us. Too many of us
under estimates the power of





Satan. His main mission is to
"seek out those he can destroy."

His main target is the family.
If he can weaken the family
then the church, government,
and the community is lost. We
must be spiritually alert not to
allow the subtle power of the
devil to overtake us. We are
told in 1 Peter 5:8:

"Be careful! Watch out for
attacks from the Devil, your
great enemy. He prowls around
like a roaring lion, looking for
some victim to devour."

Let us get closer to God. Too
many of us are just going to
church. We are truly church-
going people. However, far too
many are not allowing the God
of their religion to control their
lives. Too many are just mes-
merized by the awe and power
of their leaders, or by the sen-
sational and emotionally-
packed services they attend
each week. Too often church is
just a parade of dress and hat
styles, or a grandiose show of



for our future

talents and entertainment. Too
many go to church to have their
emotions perked up rather than
having their intellect stimulated
and spiritual power renewed.
This is certainly not spirituality.
This is the type of "spirituali-
ty" that is destroying families
and nations. It is now the time
that we seek a more genuine
relationship) with our
Redeemer. It is now the time
that we get real in our spiritual
relationship with Jesus.

BALANCE ALL FOUR




Mie aa

alone is enough to t
our families and nation. This is
not so. We need a balance
among all four ingredients. We
can have all night prayer meet-
ings and candlelight vigils, but if
the power we are experiencing
is not motivating us to get into
action, it is not the right power.
True spiritual power frees us
from the attitude of indiffer-
ence. It allows us to get in touch
with our feelings and then pro-
pels us into unprecedented
action. True spiritual power
releases the gifts of the spirit in
us. It allows the individual tal-
ents.to shine. Not all may.be on
a committee, paint houses, con-

duct seminars, or march to
protest the high level of crime.
But all can speak out against
the evils by their vote. calling
the police when they have wit
nessed a violation of a law. and
not turning their heads when
they know of wrong-doing in
their church or community.
Dear reader, let us work
together to fix our nation. We
can do it. Let us join all powerful
forces of thinking, praying, feel-
ing, and doing to make a differ-
ence in nation. Now is the time
for action. Let our tears be seen
when pain is inflicted. Let our
-feet-be heard-marching against

.... the war.of-crime.Let-our hands

‘be heard using the hammers of

"justice of truth. Let our voices

be heard speaking loudly against
all wicked action. Let our hearts
and hands reach out to the incest
and rape victim and the abused
and robbery victim. Even so let
us reach out to the perpetrator,
helping him or her to change
and live a new life.

Let our whole body spring
into action in every home,
church, and community. Let's
fix our nation.

tims of the 2003 collision some

In May of this year, four
years after the tragic accident,
the plight of the survivors devel-
oped into a pre-election con-

warning to those persons who
are trying to intimidate and to
create undue influence and
pressure on people, to stop it

She stressed that the only

who have never lived in the

determined, and I have every
confidence that it will be deter-
mined that I got the majority '
of the votes, then, of course, it ,
would mean then that | will *
take the seat in parliament,” she '
said.

During the election court pro-
ceedings, the court will hear evi-
dence of witnesses and will |
make a decision on the individ- +

Opening lead — ten of clubs.

From the time declarer sees
dummy in today’s deal, his total
focus should be: How can I avoid
two spade losers?

There are two obvious possibili-
ties. The opposizig diamonds may be
divided 3-3, in which case a spade
can be discarded from dummy on the
fourth diamond, or the spade finesse
may succeed.

South should reason that if the
diamonds break evenly or the spade
finesse works, the slam is a certainty.
He should therefore proceed on the
assumption that both will go against

HOW many words of
four letters or more
can you make from the
letters shown here? In
making a word, each
letter may be used once
only. Each must contain

there must be at least
one nine-letter word. No
_plurals or verb forms

ending in “s”, no words
with initial capitals and no words with a hyphen or
apostrophe permitted. The first word of a phrase is
permitted (e.g. inkjet in inkjet printer).

the nine but has no safe return. If he
leads a spade, it goes into the A-Q,
and if he returns a club, South trumps
in dummy and sheds the queen of
spades.

The play described is what’s
known as a loser on a loser. South’s
six of spades, which is a loser in any
case, is disposed of at a propitious
moment to create a sure-fire endplay.
In this deal, declarer has to carefully
manage his club plays from dummy
so that West — who is marked with
the nine of clubs by his opening lead

— can be put on lead at precisely the

‘tight moment. 8

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Lady
Bird Johnson made a final trip
Friday to her beloved wild-
flower center, where friends and
family followed the former first
lady’s casket into a gallery fora
private memorial service.

About 180 people gathered
at the Lady Bird Johnson Wild-
flower Center, where her cof-
fin, draped in white cloth with
blue embroidery, rested in front
of a large portrait of Johnson
in a field of flowers. Nearby,
two vases held lavender-hued
bluebells, her favorite flower.

"We are here to let Lady Bird
go and to celebrate her glad
release,” said the Rev. Stephen
Kinney, former rector at John-
son’s home church, St. Barn-
abas Episcopal Church in Fred-
ericksburg. “This is our time to
say goodbye.”

The service for the 94-year-
old widow of former President
Lyndon Baines Johnson ended
with a song written for her.

Daughter Lynda Johnson
Robb watched from the front
row, swaying to the music and
smiling. She had walked in with
her sister, Luci Baines Johnson,

ing every branch of the U.S.

Johnson, who died Wednes-

husband at the couple’s Central
Texas ranch at her request. She
also wanted her casket to fol-

years ago to the LBJ Library

Early Friday afternoon, the
casket arrived at the museum
while bagpipes played “Amaz-
ing Grace.”

With a crowd of about 250
looking on, her daughters and
other family members followed
the casket into the library where
Johnson will lie in repose until
Saturday morning.

Mary Vidani, 57, was among
those waiting at the library.
