Shock new figures
show 62 per cent
of Fox Hill inmates
are on remand

B By BRENT DEAN
Tribune Staff Reporter
bdean@tribunemedia.net

SIXTY-TWO per cent of

‘\- prisoners at Fox Hill are on

remand awaiting trial, it was

revealed yesterday as a nation-

al conference sought ways to

combat the Bahamas’ soaring
crime rate.

Shocked delegates also heard
that the Bahamas has the 11th
highest incarceration rate in the
world out of 214 countries sur-
veyed.

Dr Elliston Rahming, the
prison superintendent, present-
ed these and other 2006 statis-
tics to a roundtable of repre-
sentatives from the government,
non-governmental agencies,
police and media, at the Nation-
al Assembly on Crime held at
the Wyndham Hotel.

The prison currently houses
nearly 1,400.inmates, Dr Rah-
ming revealed, with the
Bahamas recording the fourth
highest incarceration rate in the
Caribbean.

Figures on the global incar-
ceration rate come from the
2006 World Prison Population
List published by the Centre for
Prison Studies, University of
London.

Based on local data, 87 per
cent of inmates are under 30.
Between May to August this
year, 69 per cent of new admis-
sions were remand prisoners,
worsening the overcrowding
problem.

The Bahamas does not have
a formalised legislatively based
plea bargaining system. Some
“ad-hoc” plea bargaining is
done by the Attorney Gener-
al’s Office, but a formal system
would potentially reduce the
large backlog of cases that lead
some prisoners to wait for up
to two to three years on
remand before their trial
begins.

, Director of Prosecutions
Bernard Turner acknowledged
that the current rate of guilty

pleas is very low, leading to

more than 90 per cent of cases’

going to trial, despite the fact
that mandatory minimum sen-
tences have been abolished.

A formalised legislative plea
bargaining system, Mr Turner
said, “would assist” in reducing
the number of cases requiring a
trial.

He added that such a system
would require some sentencing
discount for people to opt for
the plea, rather than a trial —
where more incarcerated time
would be possible.

The new figures also reveal
that women represent only
three per cent of the prison pop-
ulation, while 92 per cent of
inmates are Bahamian-born and
raised by Bahamian parents —
debunking the myth that
Haitians and other foreign
nationals are mostly or solely
responsible for crime in the
country.

With most prisoners only on
remand, Dr Rahming said the
prison’s rehabilitation efforts
were therefore aimed at the

remaining 38 per cent of the.

population.

Among this group, there had
been a 10 per cent reduction in
the recidivism rate.

Dr Rahming said the prison
is trying to further reduce this
rate from the current 42 per
cent to 25 per cent or lower

‘ over the next three years.

He said the recidivism rate is
not 69 per‘cent, as assumed by
some, with 391 of the 566
admissions from May to August
this year being new to prison,
or having only spent time there
on remand — representing a 31
per cent recidivism rate over
the period.

The prison’s rehabilitation
programme is currently divid-
ed into four categories — work
programmes, educational pro-
grammes, behaviour adjustment
courses and character building
programmes.

Work programmes at the
prison operate, Dr Rahming

in crime crackdown

@ By TANEKA THOMPSON
Tribune Staff Reporter
tihompson@tribunemedia.com

A NUMBER of illegal
firearms were taken off the
streets of New Providence this
week in the “relentless” fight
against crime, police said.

Due to increased vigilance
and concerted efforts by police
officers throughout the island,
as well as critical tips from the
public, the RBPF was able to
confiscate a number of illegal
firearms, which included an

AK 47, a 9mm pistol, as well as
188 live rounds of ammunition,
Asst Supt Walter Evans said
yesterday.

“We want to encourage the
public to continue to assist us
as We continue our efforts to
reduce crime in the communi-
ty,” ASP Evans said.

“As we take these weapons
off the streets, it reduces the
fear within our community...it

reduces the possibility of

armed robbery taking place.

The more weapons taken oft

our streets reduces the inci-

dents where persons are being
injured.”

After the highly-publicised
string of stabbings throughout
the island this week, ASP
Evans also acknowledged the
apparent “shift” towards the
use of knives during acts of vio-
lence.

He spoke of obstacles fac-
ing police in regulating these
potentially deadly weapons

due to the accessibility of

knives.

Defence in Hutchinson murder
trial closes with new witnesses

@ By NATARIO MCKENZIE

THE defence in the Tan
Hutchinson murder trial closed
its case yesterday after calling
three additional witnesses.

The defence first called Sgt
Frederick Nottage, who was
desk officer at Cable Beach
police station at the time
Hutchinson was taken into
police custody in October,
2005.

He told the court that he was
on duty from 8am to 4pm on
Wednesday, October 26, and
the following day.

He said when he came on
duty that day he initially

received no complaints of

physical ailments from

Hutchinson.

He told the court, however,
that around 10.50am Hutchin-
son complained of having back
pains. Nottage said he made
arrangements for Hutchinson
to visit a doctor.

He told the court that two
officers were about to take
Hutchinson to hospital when
the station sergeant gave him
certain instructions and the
doctor’s visit for that day was
cancelled,

Set Nottage told the court
that the necessary arrange-
ments were made for Hutehin-
son to see a doctor on October
Zils

The officer told the court
that Hutchinson was taken to

Princess Margaret Hospital.
During cross-examination by
the prosecution, he told the
court that he noticed nothing
out of the ordinary about the
way Hutchinson walked.

On Thursday Hutchinson
had testified that the deceased
- Jackie Moxey - had kicked
him in the groin.

Corporal Nelson Rahming,
who was attached to Cable
Beach police station in Octo-
ber, 2005, recalled that around
11.33am on October 27 he and
PC Nairn took the accused
from Cable Beach police sta-
tion to Princess Margaret Hos-
pital,

one half

of murder
suspects

are already
on bail

@ By BRENT DEAN
Tribune Staff Reporter
bdean@tribunemedia.net

POLICE revealed yesterday
that, over the first half of the
year, 46 per cent of those

charged with murder were -

already on bail for anether
offence when arrested.
Chaswell Hanna, director of

research and planning, present-.

ed this data at the opening ses-
sion of the two-day National
Assembly on Crime, organised
by the Ministry of National
Security.

Mr Hanna’s presentation
came during the police contri-
bution presented by Acting
Deputy Commissioner Reginald
Ferguson.

As was first published in The
Tribune last Thursday, serious
crime was up 29 per cent, with
murder up 50 per cent, rape up
53 per cent and armed robbery
up 47 per cent.

The data also revealed sur-
prisingly that 50 per cent of
murder victims for the first half
of this year had prior criminal
records, and 36 per cent of these
people had a record involving
violence.

President of the Court of
Appeal Dame Joan Sawyer
advised the audience not to
place blame for the current state
of crime on others, but rather to
look individually at their own
behaviour.

Foul play not
suspected
after man

found dead

FREEPORT - A 52-year-old

man was found dead at Eight,

said police went to John Rolle
Corner after receiving informa
tion that a man had been found

Further arrests over |
undersize crawfish

THREE Bahamian regis-
tered vessels were detained this
week by members or the

Defence Force for in connec- —

tion with the discovery of
undersized crawfish.

The incident occurred during
a routine patrol on Tuesday
afternoon by HMBS P-122

under the command of Lead-

ing Seaman Lucitas Green.

The officers reported that
while in the northern Bahamas,
they encountered and boarded
a 45-foot fishing vessel.

The marines reportedly con-
ducted a search and discovered
around 80 pounds of undersized
crawfish. ,

Two fishermen were taken
into custody and turned over to

police in Grand Cay, Abaco.

On Monday afternoon,
Defense Force marines boarded
a 94-foot fishing vessel, also in
the northern Bahamas.

A search of the vessel again
uncovered around 80 pounds of
undersized crawfish, the
marines said.

Custody

Six fishermen were taken into

* custody and turned over to the

police in Marsh Harbor, Abaco.
On that same day, marines
stopped and boarded a small
dishing vessel in the same area.
They reported discovering
around 120 undersized crawfish

on the boat.

Two Bahamian men along
with their vessel and catch were
subsequently taken into custody
and turned over the authorities
in Abaco.

These incidents are the latest
in a number of actions taken
by the Defence Force since the
opening of the crawfish sea-
son.

A spokesman for the force
reminded the public and espe-
cially the fishermen that they
must adhere to the fisheries
laws of the Bahamas.

All the men taken into cus-
tody in connection with the
three incidents are currently
helping police with their inves-
tigations.

New patrol craft for RBDF

THE harbor patrol unit of the
Royal Bahamas Defence Force
has been equipped with two
new craft.

Their fleet has been bolstered
by the addition of P-15, a 21-
foot Bimini top vessel and P-
40, a 27-foot Dauntless.

The 43 member harbor patrol
unit says the new additions, which
bring their operational craft num-
ber to six, are enough to fulfill
their mandate effectively.

The 27-foot craft that is
equipped with GPS and radar
has proven extremely useful in
night surveillance and detec-

tion, unit members say.

_ They added that as it is a cov-
ered vessel, it provides adequate
protection for marines, enabling
them to perform short to medi-
um range patrols.

The Defence Force said it
expects to receive another two
27-foot boats within a few
weeks.

They are presently being con-
structed by Harbourside Marine
Ltd.

These two boats will be sta-
tioned at the Defence Force
Base in Matthew Town, Inagua,
and will be accompanied by two

trailers and one heavy duty
track.

Contracts have also been
signed with SeaArk Marine for
the construction of two 48-foot
Dauntless class vessels.

These vessels are expected to
be delivered to the Defence
Force early.next year.

“To ensure that the Defence
Force is always able to respond
to its mandate, effective the
continual upgrade and pro-
curement of assets remain a
high priority within the organi-
sation,” said the Defence Force
in a statement.

Multi-million dollar expansion underway at GB oil facility

HIGH ROCK, Grand
Bahama — South Riding Point
Holdings Limited — has
announced that it will be spend-
ing $30 million to expand its oil
storage facility in east Grand
Bahama.

And the government said it
will soon begin talks with the
company on extending the lease
agreement for the facility.

Minister for Agriculture and
Marine Resources Larry
Cartwright and chairman for
the Bahamas Agricultural and
Industrial Corporation Edi-

son Key headed a team ot

BAIC officials on a visit to
the High Rock facility on
Thursday.

BAIC is a government
agency which holds the lease

agreement for 763 acres at’

South Riding Point. This
includes 155 acres of land, the
remainder being the sea bed
and an offshore jetty. The cur-
rent lease reportedly expires in
2020

South Riding Point Holdings
Limited took over control of
the oil storage and transship-
ment facility in 1986. The plant
began operation back in 1974
and was then known as Burmah
Oil.

Jaime Vargas, vice president
of operations at SRPHL said
the expansion will include ren-
ovations and an upgrade of the

plant and offshore jetties.

According to Mr Vargas, two
new tanks will add around 28
per cent capacity to the termi-
nal.

He further explained that
each tank can hold 750,000 bar-
rels of oil, similar to the five
storage tanks already at the site.

Investment

Mr Vargas told the delega-
tion that the company has some
projects on hold that will
involve

“For that reason we want to

investments can be possible,”
he said.

Mr Cartwright and Mr Key

to working with them for the
continued operation of the facil-
ity.

What’s the point of Iraq War?

WASHINGTON — Gen. David Petraeus
‘proved to be a slender political reed when he
testified before Congress this week.

President Bush had invested much ot his
Iraq troop-surge strategy in Petraeus, -but
the Army four-star couldn’t close the deal.
The general said several supportive things
from the White House point of view about
the usefulness of the recent escalation in
U.S. troop numbers. But he was not willing
to look into the future and make predic-
tions about the wisdom of fighting on end-
lessly. He’s heard of Vietnam. President
Bush’s speech Thursday evening was
designed to reaffirm an open-ended US.
commitment to his Iraq war policy. But he
faces growing scepticism both in the public
and in Congress.

Bush has gone through multiple rationales
for the war, all of which have been demol-
ished or abandoned. The basic question now
is — what’s the point of this? The military
brass, on the whole, has not been behind
this misadventure. When I sat next to an
admiral at dinner during the 2002 propa-
ganda buildup for the war he said to me, “I
want you to know the military is not for
this.” I couldn’t sleep for nights afterward.

Petraeus, a respected military leader and
no political dummy, told USA Today after
his two days of bipartisan grilling that he
recognized there would not be “national

consent” to anything like another decade |

of “the level of forces we have right now
nor the mission set we have right now.” So
his proposal was to withdraw the thirty thou-
sand troops added in the surge, which creates
an illusion of change. But a troop trim does-
n’t really do anything but acknowledge the
surge made no lasting difference, except to
those who died in combat.

Petraeus insisted his views had not been
vetted in advance by the White House. But
clearly Bush is pulling the strings here, using
Petraeus to justify the surge because the
president lacks the credibility to do it on his
own. The president’s approval of the han-
dling of the Iraq war is now languishing
around thirty-six percent.

. Petraeus, by contrast, had a favourable
rating in a Gallup and USA Today poll of 52
per cent going into the hearings. The
Petraeus report had been oversold as a
bombshell that would consolidate congres-

NOTICE

sional and public opinion and provide polit-
ical cover for a shift in Iraq. But it was all
shell and no bomb. It didn’t clarify a thing
despite the opportunity it afforded ambi-
tious politicians of both parties to pontificate
on their views of what should be done with
the mess Bush made in Iraq. Petraeus
gauged the political reaction to his trans-
parent military tap dance correctly.

Democrats, predictably, were not
impressed. Sen Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y.,
called it “too little and too late, and unac-
ceptable.” Sen Barack Obama, D-Ill, laid
out a plan for immediate withdrawal that
would be faster and larger than the admin-
istration contemplates. There are new bipar-
tisan stirrings on Capitol Hill to nudge the
president toward ways to reduce exposure of
our soldiers to this meaningless war.

This time, Democrats are seeking to lure
Republicans who have been reluctant to
speak out against their president. It sent
shock waves through the GOP when Sen.
Elizabeth Dole, R-N.C., a meek, robotic
Bush fan, suddenly spoke up to criticize the
administration and call for a “policy that
the majority of Americans will support” on
Iraq. Wow. All of this activity is complicat-
ed and mostly done in back rooms. So it’s
not the stirring stuff of verbal combat on
the House or Senate floor

The president simply wants to continue
doing what he wants, which is to dump this
garbage in the lap of his successor and ignore
Congress. But it’s not that easy any more.

Even with Sen. Tim Johnson, D-S.D.,
recovered from his.long illness, Democrats
don’t have the veto-proof margin of 60 votes
they need — but they are creeping closer.
And if the situation in Iraq continues to
deteriorate, they may get the votes to pass
tougher measures and push the administra-
tion toward a strategic exit. Most of their
efforts are aimed at making life better for the
troops, with more reasonable rotation poli-
cies, for instance.

Petraeus could not say whether he thought
the war had made America safer. But it
would be a start to make American soldiers
safer.

Time to be
accountable
for tourism

EDITOR, The Tribune

HOW long will we be
deceived and complacent?
Actions speak louder than
words and no matter how many
times we say that Tourism ts the
foundation of the Bahaintan
economy, if our aculons do not
demonstrate it then we are not
being realistic or truthful!

It is time to wake up into
accountability Bahamas, for the
time has come and gone for us
to stop feasting at the table otf
mediverity and now ts the time
to upgrade our mindset along
with our resources. and our
actions and investments need
to corroborate with our state
ments and assertions.

The newly named interna-
tional airport has the potential
to be so much more than the
antiquated, unfinished mon
strosity that it is today, and
being the primary point of entry
to our many visitors. it seems
almost redundant to draw atten-
tion to the many flaws, and yet,
atter 20 plus years, it is still ina
poor condition. Many of the
changes and renovations need-

wed are not even ‘major’ in
nature, but almost common-
sense and obvious, and yet, they
remain undone.

Since the international airport
is located in the nation’s capi-
tal, New Providence, and, has
been newly named after Sir
Lynden O Pindling, it would be
a step forward in the right direc-
tion to have a portrait and short
bio of the man for whom the
airport was named. In addition,
names/captions are needed for

all of the portraits in the ‘walk of

fame’. especially since the time
was taken to attain and mount
the pictures for public viewing

letters@tribunemedia.net




In addition, why aren’t there
more kiosks at the airport, espe-
cially Bahamian owned? For
example Bertha’s, Bahamian
Kitchen, Twin Brothers (for
that last daiquiri and conch frit-
ter), Bamboo Shack to name a
few, could provide that last little
taste of the islands before
departing. And even if it is not
feasible for these companies to
open a kiosk, the point remains
that something has to be done

to improve the variety of—

Bahamian services provided to
our guests and residents alike.

And, of course, what exactly
is the bathroom situation? Is
the present condition truly the
best that the Bahamas has to
offer?

And speaking of bathroom
situations, when will the Straw
Market be a sanitized area for
staff and patrons alike? Don’t
get me wrong though, I am not
speaking politically, but nation-
ally, for regardless of who the
governing party is, we as
Bahamians are depending on
tourism and if we do not ensure
that our facilities and services
are of the highest quality then
we have no one to blame but
ourselves.

Instead of pointing fingers at
who is to blame, we need to
unite, focus and get the job
done. A certain international
investor has built up to three
phases of a project on Paradise
Island while we locals argue
about the proposed structure
and location of the straw mar-
ket. Bay Street. like the inter-

national airport is a place fre-
quented by tourists and locals
alike, and yet, it is also un-
Bahamiansed and in poor con-
dition, and it doesn’t reflect the
Bahamian commitment to
excellence in service to all, in
fact, Marina Village seems to
present more of the ‘island
flavour’ than the main thor-
oughfare in our nation’s capi-
tal and that is unacceptable!

So, if we truly do mean what
we say, and Tourism is really
our main industry and form of
income then it is time to
demonstrate it and put our
money where our mouth is and
invest where it counts — we are
not an extension of Florida,
even though we are very close
in proximity — we are an inde-
pendent country, an archipel-
ago of beautiful, unique, pro-
ductive islands and it behooves
us Bahamians and locals alike
to embrace and promote our
Bahamian culture, through our
creativity, friendliness, integrity,
sounds, tastes, sights, national
resources, services and facili-
ties. And we are doing a disser-
vice to ourselves and our
descendants when we cheapen
the quality of our life, by short
changing the way we invest and
promote ourselves and our
country.

Now is the time for us to
prove in the way we communi-
cate, invest and keep our sur-
roundings that ‘it just keeps get-
ting better in the Bahamas’ and
demonstrate that Tourism is our
country’s number one industry,
in fact, I double dog dare you
Bahamas!

Please give more attention to the
problem of AIDS in our country

EDITOR, The Tribune

PLEASE allow me space in
your valuable newspaper to air
a concern of mine

The Lribune along with con-
cerned citizens and corporate

sponsors raised hundreds of

thousands of dollars to purchase
new dialysis machines also to
maintain them for a year and
to train staff. All of this for the
people of the Bahamas who
must undergo this treatment on
a daily basis. What a wonder-
ful job was done and I am very
proud of my Bahamian brothers

HEAD COOKS

This is a seasonal position from October of this
year through May of 2008. Interested persons
must have a minimum of four (4) years experience
in the field, good presentation is also requested,
diplomas from the Nassau Hotel Training College

must be present as well.

HEAD CHEF



The position of Head Chef de Partie will be
seasonal, with the possibility of full-time
depending on satisfactory performance. The
persons interested in filling this position must

meet these requirements:

a minimum of seven (7)

years in the cooking field, standard diplomas from
The Bahamas Hotel Training College/College of
The Bahamas, pastry knowledge, garde-manger
and most importantly fine dining experience.
Management skills and people skills are a must.
‘This challenging position requires the individual
to be flexible, well-experienced in classical French

and sisters.

However, there is another
problem in our country which
we need to face as it is not going
anywhere and at some point
and time it will touch all of our
lives in one way or the other
and that problem is AIDS.

The AIDS Foundation is
doing what it can. The clinic is
being run efficiently and in a
successful manner. The med-
ications are being dispensed
free of charge and on this side it
seems everything is being run
smoothly. The donations even
though generous as they may
seem that come in from the Red
Ribbon Ball and Kerzner Int’l
are only scratching the surface.

The two wards which are the
Sealy or Female Chest and the
Corey Newbold of Male Chest
wards are in dire need of being
totally refurbished. The beds
need to be replaced as the
wheel cogs are infested with
roaches and this is where they
breed. All of the nightstands
needs to be replaced as this is
also a breeding ground for
roaches. There is a need for a
retrigerator for the patients to
use and this, of course, will help
to eliminate the roach problem
as no tood would need to be
lett on the stands at night as it
can be secured in the proper
place. The Sealy Ward also
needs a new television as the

one that is there is not working
properly, it is like these wards
have been completely forgot-
ten.

There are only 13 beds on the
Sealy ward and, of course, 13
nightstands so the refurbish-
ment of this ward should not
cost as much as the dialysis
equipment. Now the Corey
Newbold ward probably has
about 20 to 25 beds and night-
stands and I don't knew
whether or not they have a
refrigerator for the patients or
even a workable television.

So, this letter is to throw out a
challenge to the people of the
Bahamas and its corporate citi-
zens as well as the newspapers,
which include The Nassau
Guardian and The Punch, to
take up this cause and run with
it like was done for the dialysis
unit and see to it that the Sealy
and Corey Newbold wards are
refurbished.

You never know when this
sickness will hit you close to
home.

Thank you, my Bahamian
brothers and sisters, for your
kind donations to this worthy
cause.

Ballot boxes

Jamaica poll’

mg JAMAICA
Kingston

HUNDREDS of votes found
uncounted in two ballot boxes
would not have changed the
outcome of parliamentary races
in the Caribbean country, a
Jamaican judge ruled, accord-
ing to Associated Press.

After a tally of the votes —
from security forces and elec-
tion workers who voted a week
before the September 3 general
elections — it was determined
that they would not have made
a difference in the results, Mag-
istrate Sara James-Thompson
said Wednesday.

Elections Director Danville
Walker said officials inadver-
tently stored the two boxes
from the eastern parish of St
Mary along with 280 counted
ones in canvassing headquar-
ters in the capital of Kingston.

"We regret the inconvenience
and disquiet that our mistake has
caused and apologise," Walker
said in a statement Wednesday
before the votes were counted.
"We assure the public that this
was not intentional or done to
favor any candidate."

Prime Minister Bruce Gold-
ing led the Jamaica Labor Par-
ty to a narrow victory and a 33-
27 parliamentary majority in the
vote, ousting the country's first
female prime minister, Portia
Simpson Miller. He was sworn
in Tuesday.

A TWO-DAY-OLD strike
by cane cutters and other sugar
workers will continue until the
state-owned Guyana Sugar Cor-
poration agrees to increase
wages by 12 per cent, union offi-
cials said Wednesday, accord-
ing to Associated Press.

The strike by 15,000 workers
at coastal estates has already
cost the company known as
Guysuco 3,000 tons of sugar
production and losses will
exceed US$2 millionif it con-
tinues a third day, said Paul
Bhim, a company spokesman.

The Guyana Agriculture
Workers Union called the work
stoppage Tuesday after rejecting
proposed pay increases of 6.5 per
cent, saying that would not allow
workers to keep up with the rising
cost of food and other basic items.

No meetings have been
planned with company officials,
union treasurer Rooplall Per-
saud said.

Guysuco, the largest sugar pro-
ducer in the Caribbean, is expect-
ed to yield 281,000 tons this year,
most of it for export to Europe.

PRIME Minister Hubert
Ingraham is leading a delega-
tion to a historic CARICOM
meeting in Trinidad on the
fight against non-communica-
ble diseases.

Chronic non-communicable
diseases such as diabetes and
hypertension have been iden-
tified as being major killers
throughout the Caribbean.

The CARICOM Heads of
Government Summit on
Chronic Non-Communicable
Diseases (CNCDs) was
launched on September 12 at a
media clinic via video confer-
ence organised by the CARI-
COM Secretariat.

It is being held under the
theme: Stemming the tide of
non-communicable diseases in
the Caribbean.

In his opening statement,
Prime Minister of ‘Trinidad and
Tobago Patrick Manning, who
will host this summit on Sat-
urday, said the major objec-
tives are: informing the region
of the magnitude of the prob-

‘lem, devising strategies for pre-

vention of risk factors and
establishing a collective
approach for accelerating the
management and control of
the diseases.

According to Prime Minis-
ter Manning, the statistics on
NCDs in the Caribbean were
alarming and while many
strides had been made in
health development in the

‘region, there is still room for

improvement.
However, he affirmed the

region’s commitment to give
priority to the issue.

“That we are meeting as
heads of government on this
matter indicates the priority
that CARICOM has placed on
the topic,” Mr Manning said.

He pointed to initial pre-
ventive steps taken to curtail
NCDs, including the imposi-
tion of tax on tobacco in some
member states as a major step.

Mr Manning said he hopes
the summit would not only
devise strategies to stem NCDs
but would also identify and
treat the root causes.

He also called for the full
support of the media in part-

nering with the community in a
comprehensive public educa-
tion programme on lifestyle
management.

Chairman of the Caribbean
Commission on Health and
Development (CCHD) Sir
George Alleyne said the sum-
mit would not only focus on
individual responsibility for the
reduction of NCDs but would
also examine the need for
heads of government and oth-
er policy makers to create an
enabling environment which
would empower individuals to
manage their own lifestyle.

Mr Ingraham left for the
conference yesterday at 6am.

Why you vex?

“I VEX, because of the
amount of violence in our
schools as. of late. I think
these incidents in the past
couple of days have brought
to light a wider issue, not just
school security. It was just
coincidental that these stab-
bings happened when police
were removed . .. these inci-
dents stem from matters out-
side the school.”

— A concerned young man

“The Ministry of Tourism
building on George Street
appearance is on par with the
Straw Market. The parking
spaces provided for the MPs
on Parliament Street are
grimy and dirty with faded
parking lines, and grass is
growing all over the steps
near the Speaker’s office. I
vex because the people who
run the country don’t see
these things.”

-— A concerned citizen.

“T vex because every time I
open a carton of eggs at least

four eggs in each carton is
cracked. I have to stand there
and examine every egg in the
carton and exchange the
cracked ones for good ones
from other cartons. I thought
I was supposed to be paying
for good whole eggs. Some
time ago cracked eggs were
50 per cent off regular prices.
Now we, as consumers are
getting cracked eggs at regu-
lar prices. This is cheating the
consumer and is disgusting!
While we are on the subject
of eggs, the cartons plainly
say that the eggs are either
large or extra large, but when
you open the cartons only
small eggs are inside — have
you seen any cartons lately
that say ‘small or medium
eggs? They look more like
bird eggs! This is why I vex.

— Ruth, an angry shopper.

“T am vex at the way the
PLP is promoting social
unrest in the country through
their website by telling so
much lies. and half truths.
(The party) has to get over

towards building the nation

Redevelopment of Win

WINDERMERE Island,
Eleuthera — The Windermere
Island Club, where England's
Royal family once vacationed, is
about to be expanded and
restored to its glory days.

Sitting on 165 acres of land,
the new development will fea-
ture 52 family compounds with
an ocean view and 31 cottages.

The famous Windermere
Island Hotel, established in the
1950s, will be transformed into
a boutique, inn and spa.

Windermere Island North
Development Ltd, said it select-
ed the island for its privacy and
serenity.

The company pledged to “go

light” on the land, preserving »

the natural landscape and open
spaces.

Last Saturday members of the
board of directors of the Hotel
Corporation of the Bahamas.
along with Deputy Prime Min-
ister Brent Symonette, toured
the resort site on the seven-mile-
long private island.

It was just one of the many
areas toured by the Hotel Cor-
poration board members, who
conducted a fact-finding mis-

REGIONAL entertainers
have collaborated to produce a
new sound for Royal Bank of
Canada’s brand in the Bahamas
and Caribbean region.

The bank said it has commis-
sioned a new jingle that captures
the message that RBC wants to
communicate to its customers
“in a memorable and engaging
melody set to the rhythms and
sounds of the Caribbean”.

A team of musicians and
bank employees from around
the region participated in the
creation of the jingle that was
finally sung by Bahamian per-
former Alia Coley and co-pro-
duced by musicians Fred Fer-
guson who led the project, and
Sammie Poitier.

The final lyrics were written
by Alia Coley.

“We wanted to ensure that
the musical style was authenti-
cally Caribbean,” said Mr Fer-
guson, a musician, writer and
one of the founding members
of the Grammy Award-winning

Managing director of the Hotel

“While being firm and
relentless in our approach, we
have to do all we can to reduce
crime from every angle, every
aspect. One of the challenges
police may be faced with is
knives can be used for legiti-
mate purposes, they can be
used for household means.
Virtually anyone can get their
hands on a sharp instrument,”
he noted.

“We are particularly con-
cerned with the number of
stabbings we have seen in
recent times, especially those
matters which have taken
place in our schools. Much
more can be done, but we
need the full support of the
community to help reform, in
this case, our young men.”

on information received from
the public, when they found
an AK 47 weapon concealed in
a plastic bag.

Later that same day, Thurs-
day, detectives were patrolling
Bozine Town when they
approached two men near an
abandoned house acting in

what police described as a sus-
picious manner.

The men fled the scene and
officers gave chase. Although
they didn’t catch the men, they
retrieved an illegal weapon,
ASP Evans said.

On Thursday afternoon,
officers from the Southern
Police Station on patrol in the
Big Pond area saw a blue vehi-
cle acting suspiciously.

According to police, the four
male occupants sped off and
officers gave chase. As a result
the vehicle was stopped near
Water Street and two of the
four occupants were captured.
A 9mm handgun was confis-
cated.

ASP. Evans DEU officers,
acting on a tip from the public,
uncovered a “knapsack” con-
tarming 188 live rounds of
ammunition near the Sports

Thursday afternoon. Investi-

The officer, while perusing a
hospital form, noted that the
nature of Hutehinson’s injuries
was blunt trauma to his nght eve
and blunt trauma to his back.

Constable Edison Nairn,

ilar testimony, recalling that
on October 27, while at the sta-
tion around 11.35, he and Cor-

poral Rahming took the

Dame Joan also answered |
critics who charged that the

courts too often granted bail to
alleged offenders.

“Yes, you complain about us

that we give bail, but there is
something called the constitu-

action

tion of the Bahamas,” she said. *!
“The constitution of the !

Bahamas says no man or
woman or child’ or anybody

should be arrested and not tried 4

within a reasonable time.”

Dame Joan said “there is no,

quick solution” to the problem
of crime in the country.

“It’s been allowed to go too
long,” she said. “You’ve had 30

years from Independence and .

more, and you’ve done nothing
to build a nation.

“All you do is to whine and
complain, and blame whoever is
in political power and whoever
is in the church and whoever is
there,” she said.

These groups all come from
the society, Dame Joan remind-
ed the audience, therefore all
Bahamians share collective
blame for the current situation.

“The nation is full of pre-
tenders, pontificators and insin-
cere people,” Dame Joan added
later in her remarks.

Bishop Simeon Hall.also
echoed the message of Dame
Joan, stating that the way for-
ward in tackling increased vio-
lence was through “personal
responsibility.”

MINISTER OF Tourism Neko Grant as he launched the new tourism- oe

awareness campaign

“MY Bahamas: Let’s make it
better...again” — a national
tourism awareness campaign,
was launched this week by Min-
ister of Tourism and Aviation
Neko Grant.

The government says the

campaign will use a combina- .

tion of media strategy and com-
munity programmes to focus
attention on how vital tourism is
to the national economic well-
being.

“As tourism is everybody's
business and it takes all of us
to ensure its success, | invite all
Bahamians to embrace this
cause,” Mr Grant said.

Leading stakeholders in

S;



tourism met at the British Colo-
nial Hilton on Wednesday as
Mr Grant unveiled the min-
istry’s campaign package.

He was accompanied by Min-
ister of State Branville McCart-
ney, Director General of
Tourism Vernice Walkine, and
Permanent Secretary Archie
Nairn.

The ‘My Bahamas’ logo will
feature the Bahamas’ tourism
brand identity (featuring all the

_ islands) being served on a plate

by a white gloved hand. It was
designed by Kendal Major.
“Due to the nature of the
tourism and hospitality indus-
try,” said Mr Grant, “a decision



Tourism awareness campaign launched



LEADING STAKEHOLDERS in tourism attended the Ministry of Touris-



m’s launch of its new awareness campaign

was made to make impeccable
service the focal point.

“The gloved hand symbolises
the sophistication and the dig-
nity of our industry.”

Already banners have been
set up at strategic points
throughout New Providence
and the islands featuring a sin-
gle piece of a puzzle with the
question “Where do you fit in?”

Jingles are employed to rein-
force the theme. To show the
importance of tourism to the
national economy, radio adver-
tisements will illustrate “The
house that tourism built”, and

television spots will pay tribute
to tourism’s high performers.

Substantial public relations
and field programmes will also
be launched “to ensure that the
hard work that we are speak-
ing about is also being tackled
in the trenches in the real
world,” said Mr Grant.

The minister also announced
partnerships with the Bahamas
Out Islands Promotion Board,
the Bahamas Humane Society,
and the Department of Envi-
ronmental Health Services.

He encouraged Bahamians to
take pride in their surroundings;

keep their communities safe;
render professional service; take
advantage of untapped business
opportunities, and introduce
innovative entertainment and
attractions.

“We challenge each person
to take a hard and honest look
at ourselves, our attitudes, and
whether our actions truly
demonstrate a love and pride
for this country and who we
are,” said Mr Grant.

While the Bahamas remains
competitive, having achieved

various levels of international
preeminence, slipping standards
must be arrested, the minister
observed.

“We will be reaching out to
every Bahamian, including
every conceivable segment of
the population to be part of our
endeavors.

“A country does not become
and remain great through sheer
luck. It takes work, and ‘My
Bahamas’ is an opportunity to
show ownership of our coun-
try.”

Some deals seem so cut-and-dried
to declarer that he scarcely pauses to
think before starting to play. This can
be a dangerous and costly practice,
as evidenced by today’s exhibit.

After making a pre-emptive two-
spade overcall, South wound up in
five spades doubled and was de-
lighted by the dummy his partner
tabled. Certain he was about to make
his contract with an overtrick, he put
up the ace of diamonds and led a

first spade, declarer suddenly real-
ized he was in deep trouble. He did
the best he could by playing the K-Q
of spades and conceding a trick to the
jack in hopes the defenders would try
to cash a heart before taking two dia-
monds. In that case, he could ruff the
heart and dispose of his third dia-
mond on dummy’s fifth club.

But West returned the three of
diamonds after winning the spade,
and East had no trouble diagnosing
the situation. Since West had led
high-low in diamonds, indicating a
doubleton, East knew declarer had
started with three cards in the suit. So
after taking the second diamond,
East played another diamond to set
the contract one trick.

South should have recognized at
the outset the danger posed by a 4-0
spade division — certainly a strong
possibility on the bidding — and
stopped to consider what he could do
to counter that threat. Had he done
so, he might have found the solution.

The winning play is simple, but
not obvious. All South has to do is to
refuse to take the first diamond trick!
If West started with a:doubleton dia-
mond — a virtual certainty given the
bidding and opening lead — the con-
tract is assured.

Assuming West continues with a
diamond, declarer takes the ace and
plays four rounds of trump. West
wins the fourth spade but cannot
returm a diamond, and South is home.

Evgeny Vasyukov v Ratmir
Kholmov, Moscow 1964.
Material is level, but Black's king
is unsafe since the pawn guards
at g7 and h7 are targets for
White’s queen and bishop.
However, there doesn’t seem a
way through because Black's f6
bishop is an excellent defender.
Top grandmasters have a flair
for spotting any unusual feature
in a position which can ensure
the success of an otherwise
unsound or dubious tactic, and
that's what occurred here. How
did White force resignation in
just two turns?

SATURDAY,

SEPT 15
ARIES —- March 21/April 20

There’s no use trying to knock down
a brick wall with just your hands,
Aries, you’re going to need a little
help with that important obstacle.
Cancer lends a helping hand.

TAURUS - April 21/May 21
You’ve got a spring in your step,
Taurus, and it could be due to. that
new relationship which is blossom-
ing. Expect some good fortune to
arrive in your wallet as well.

GEMINI - May 22/June 21
Spent another all-nighter worrying
about work issues? Don’t let your job
take up more than its necessary share
of your day. This is an unhealthy way
to live so make a change soon.
CANCER - June 22/July 22
You have plenty of plans and ambi-
tions, yet few resources to make the
dreams a reality. It’s best if you
start seeking assistance in influen-
tial places. Consult Scorpio for
some expertise. i

LEO - July 23/August 23

A visit to the doctor has you upset, but
there’s no need to be, Leo. You are
making a mountain out of a molehill.
Do some Internet research and ask
around — you'll get find some clarity.

VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22
Sometimes it seems like life is just
passing you by, right Virgo? It’s
fine time you stop watching the
train scoot by and climb aboard.
Cancer takes the ride, too.

LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23
A new business venture has you see-
ing green — profits that is, Libra. Yet,
all is not what it seems, so don’t rush
into anything just yet. Concentrate on
some research before investing.

SCORPIO — Oct 24/Nov 22
As usual, in your quest to be “the
best” you’ve taken on more than you
can handle, Scorpio. You may just
have to give in to defeat for once.
Forget about extra work on Monday.
SAGITTARIUS — Nov 23/Dec 21
You've taken a gamble on that
attractive stranger and now you’re
ready to see if this person is the one.
If you don’t find a connection by
Thursday, it might be best to throw |
this one back and keep fishing.

CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20
Someone close to you is giving you
bad vibes this week, Capricorn. Trust
your intuition but don’t make any rash
moves. Ask Virgo for a second opinion.
Make time for fun on Wednesday.

AQUARIUS -— Jan 21/Feb 18

After a bit of consideration, you’ve
decided to play ‘the wanderer” for a
while. An extended vacation or just a
time for reflection seems best. Make

'} this a solo trip to really reap the benefits.

PISCES — Feb 19/March 20
If your pockets seem empty, Pisces, it
could be that you haven’t been as
thrifty as you hoped. Perhaps birthday
tiches will come your way next week
when you wish on your candles.

Shock new figures
show 62 per cent
of Fox Hill inmates
are on remand

B By BRENT DEAN
Tribune Staff Reporter
bdean@tribunemedia.net

SIXTY-TWO per cent of

‘\- prisoners at Fox Hill are on

remand awaiting trial, it was

revealed yesterday as a nation-

al conference sought ways to

combat the Bahamas’ soaring
crime rate.

Shocked delegates also heard
that the Bahamas has the 11th
highest incarceration rate in the
world out of 214 countries sur-
veyed.

Dr Elliston Rahming, the
prison superintendent, present-
ed these and other 2006 statis-
tics to a roundtable of repre-
sentatives from the government,
non-governmental agencies,
police and media, at the Nation-
al Assembly on Crime held at
the Wyndham Hotel.

The prison currently houses
nearly 1,400.inmates, Dr Rah-
ming revealed, with the
Bahamas recording the fourth
highest incarceration rate in the
Caribbean.

Figures on the global incar-
ceration rate come from the
2006 World Prison Population
List published by the Centre for
Prison Studies, University of
London.

Based on local data, 87 per
cent of inmates are under 30.
Between May to August this
year, 69 per cent of new admis-
sions were remand prisoners,
worsening the overcrowding
problem.

The Bahamas does not have
a formalised legislatively based
plea bargaining system. Some
“ad-hoc” plea bargaining is
done by the Attorney Gener-
al’s Office, but a formal system
would potentially reduce the
large backlog of cases that lead
some prisoners to wait for up
to two to three years on
remand before their trial
begins.

, Director of Prosecutions
Bernard Turner acknowledged
that the current rate of guilty

pleas is very low, leading to

more than 90 per cent of cases’

going to trial, despite the fact
that mandatory minimum sen-
tences have been abolished.

A formalised legislative plea
bargaining system, Mr Turner
said, “would assist” in reducing
the number of cases requiring a
trial.

He added that such a system
would require some sentencing
discount for people to opt for
the plea, rather than a trial —
where more incarcerated time
would be possible.

The new figures also reveal
that women represent only
three per cent of the prison pop-
ulation, while 92 per cent of
inmates are Bahamian-born and
raised by Bahamian parents —
debunking the myth that
Haitians and other foreign
nationals are mostly or solely
responsible for crime in the
country.

With most prisoners only on
remand, Dr Rahming said the
prison’s rehabilitation efforts
were therefore aimed at the

remaining 38 per cent of the.

population.

Among this group, there had
been a 10 per cent reduction in
the recidivism rate.

Dr Rahming said the prison
is trying to further reduce this
rate from the current 42 per
cent to 25 per cent or lower

‘ over the next three years.

He said the recidivism rate is
not 69 per‘cent, as assumed by
some, with 391 of the 566
admissions from May to August
this year being new to prison,
or having only spent time there
on remand — representing a 31
per cent recidivism rate over
the period.

The prison’s rehabilitation
programme is currently divid-
ed into four categories — work
programmes, educational pro-
grammes, behaviour adjustment
courses and character building
programmes.

Work programmes at the
prison operate, Dr Rahming

in crime crackdown

@ By TANEKA THOMPSON
Tribune Staff Reporter
tihompson@tribunemedia.com

A NUMBER of illegal
firearms were taken off the
streets of New Providence this
week in the “relentless” fight
against crime, police said.

Due to increased vigilance
and concerted efforts by police
officers throughout the island,
as well as critical tips from the
public, the RBPF was able to
confiscate a number of illegal
firearms, which included an

AK 47, a 9mm pistol, as well as
188 live rounds of ammunition,
Asst Supt Walter Evans said
yesterday.

“We want to encourage the
public to continue to assist us
as We continue our efforts to
reduce crime in the communi-
ty,” ASP Evans said.

“As we take these weapons
off the streets, it reduces the
fear within our community...it

reduces the possibility of

armed robbery taking place.

The more weapons taken oft

our streets reduces the inci-

dents where persons are being
injured.”

After the highly-publicised
string of stabbings throughout
the island this week, ASP
Evans also acknowledged the
apparent “shift” towards the
use of knives during acts of vio-
lence.

He spoke of obstacles fac-
ing police in regulating these
potentially deadly weapons

due to the accessibility of

knives.

Defence in Hutchinson murder
trial closes with new witnesses

@ By NATARIO MCKENZIE

THE defence in the Tan
Hutchinson murder trial closed
its case yesterday after calling
three additional witnesses.

The defence first called Sgt
Frederick Nottage, who was
desk officer at Cable Beach
police station at the time
Hutchinson was taken into
police custody in October,
2005.

He told the court that he was
on duty from 8am to 4pm on
Wednesday, October 26, and
the following day.

He said when he came on
duty that day he initially

received no complaints of

physical ailments from

Hutchinson.

He told the court, however,
that around 10.50am Hutchin-
son complained of having back
pains. Nottage said he made
arrangements for Hutchinson
to visit a doctor.

He told the court that two
officers were about to take
Hutchinson to hospital when
the station sergeant gave him
certain instructions and the
doctor’s visit for that day was
cancelled,

Set Nottage told the court
that the necessary arrange-
ments were made for Hutehin-
son to see a doctor on October
Zils

The officer told the court
that Hutchinson was taken to

Princess Margaret Hospital.
During cross-examination by
the prosecution, he told the
court that he noticed nothing
out of the ordinary about the
way Hutchinson walked.

On Thursday Hutchinson
had testified that the deceased
- Jackie Moxey - had kicked
him in the groin.

Corporal Nelson Rahming,
who was attached to Cable
Beach police station in Octo-
ber, 2005, recalled that around
11.33am on October 27 he and
PC Nairn took the accused
from Cable Beach police sta-
tion to Princess Margaret Hos-
pital,

one half

of murder
suspects

are already
on bail

@ By BRENT DEAN
Tribune Staff Reporter
bdean@tribunemedia.net

POLICE revealed yesterday
that, over the first half of the
year, 46 per cent of those

charged with murder were -

already on bail for anether
offence when arrested.
Chaswell Hanna, director of

research and planning, present-.

ed this data at the opening ses-
sion of the two-day National
Assembly on Crime, organised
by the Ministry of National
Security.

Mr Hanna’s presentation
came during the police contri-
bution presented by Acting
Deputy Commissioner Reginald
Ferguson.

As was first published in The
Tribune last Thursday, serious
crime was up 29 per cent, with
murder up 50 per cent, rape up
53 per cent and armed robbery
up 47 per cent.

The data also revealed sur-
prisingly that 50 per cent of
murder victims for the first half
of this year had prior criminal
records, and 36 per cent of these
people had a record involving
violence.

President of the Court of
Appeal Dame Joan Sawyer
advised the audience not to
place blame for the current state
of crime on others, but rather to
look individually at their own
behaviour.

Foul play not
suspected
after man

found dead

FREEPORT - A 52-year-old

man was found dead at Eight,

Mile Rock on Thursday after-
noon, according to police.

Foul play has been ruled out
in the death of Marquet Jolly,
whose body was discovered
around 2.45pm on a house
porch at Bartlett Hill.

Chief Supt Basil Rahming
said police went to John Rolle
Corner after receiving informa
tion that a man had been found
dead.

James Rahming, the home’s
owner, saw the body of a man
clad in long black sweat pants
with his head resting on a con-
crete block. There were no vis-
ible injuries on the body.

Detectives processed the
area. The body was transported
to the morgue at Rand Memor-
ial Hospital, where an autopsy
will be performed to determine
the cause of death.

around 120 undersized crawfish

on the boat.

Two Bahamian men along
with their vessel and catch were
subsequently taken into custody
and turned over the authorities
in Abaco.

These incidents are the latest
in a number of actions taken
by the Defence Force since the
opening of the crawfish sea-

A spokesman for the force
reminded the public and espe-
cially the fishermen that they
must adhere to the fisheries
laws of the Bahamas.

three incidents are currently

New patrol craft for RBDF

THE harbor patrol unit of the
Royal Bahamas Defence Force
has been equipped with two
new craft.

Their fleet has been bolstered
by the addition of P-15, a 21-
foot Bimini top vessel and P-
40, a 27-foot Dauntless.

The 43 member harbor patrol
unit says the new additions, which
bring their operational craft num-
ber to six, are enough to fulfill
their mandate effectively.

The 27-foot craft that is
equipped with GPS and radar
has proven extremely useful in
night surveillance and detec-

tion, unit members say.

_ They added that as it is a cov-
ered vessel, it provides adequate
protection for marines, enabling
them to perform short to medi-
um range patrols.

The Defence Force said it
expects to receive another two
27-foot boats within a few
weeks.

They are presently being con-
structed by Harbourside Marine
Ltd.

These two boats will be sta-
tioned at the Defence Force
Base in Matthew Town, Inagua,
and will be accompanied by two

trailers and one heavy duty
track.

Contracts have also been
signed with SeaArk Marine for
the construction of two 48-foot
Dauntless class vessels.

These vessels are expected to
be delivered to the Defence
Force early.next year.

“To ensure that the Defence
Force is always able to respond
to its mandate, effective the
continual upgrade and pro-
curement of assets remain a
high priority within the organi-
sation,” said the Defence Force
in a statement.

Six attorneys associated with
Lockhart and Munroe — includ-

Mr Miller is alleging that the
defendants named in the suit —
“jointly and severally” — failed

Lockhart and Miller accused of failing to lodge
legal proceedings by father of accident victim



ings against a properly owner
who he held responsible for the
death of his son, Angelo Miller.

Angelo was crushed to death
by a large steel gate while visit-

years ago, Mr Miller said.

Mr Miller is claiming that

Lockhart and Munroe “know-

refused to file legal proceedings
within the time limit, leaving
the action statute-barred.

Mr Miller is also asking that
the law firm surrender his legal
files, “which the defendants have

Multi-million dollar expansion underway at GB oil facility

HIGH ROCK, Grand
Bahama — South Riding Point
Holdings Limited — has
announced that it will be spend-
ing $30 million to expand its oil
storage facility in east Grand
Bahama.

And the government said it
will soon begin talks with the
company on extending the lease
agreement for the facility.

Minister for Agriculture and
Marine Resources Larry
Cartwright and chairman for
the Bahamas Agricultural and
Industrial Corporation Edi-

son Key headed a team ot

BAIC officials on a visit to
the High Rock facility on
Thursday.

BAIC is a government
agency which holds the lease

agreement for 763 acres at’

South Riding Point. This
includes 155 acres of land, the
remainder being the sea bed
and an offshore jetty. The cur-
rent lease reportedly expires in
2020

South Riding Point Holdings
Limited took over control of
the oil storage and transship-
ment facility in 1986. The plant
began operation back in 1974
and was then known as Burmah
Oil.

Jaime Vargas, vice president
of operations at SRPHL said
the expansion will include ren-
ovations and an upgrade of the

plant and offshore jetties.

According to Mr Vargas, two
new tanks will add around 28
per cent capacity to the termi-
nal.

He further explained that
each tank can hold 750,000 bar-
rels of oil, similar to the five
storage tanks already at the site.

Investment

Mr Vargas told the delega-
tion that the company has some
projects on hold that will
involve

“massive investments”

return.

“For that reason we want to

chairman to explore in negotia-
tions to extend the lease beyond
the year 2020 so that all those
investments can be possible,”
he said.

Mr Cartwright and Mr Key
assured SRPHL executives of
the government’s commitment
to working with them for the
continued operation of the facil-
ity.

What’s the point of Iraq War?

WASHINGTON — Gen. David Petraeus
‘proved to be a slender political reed when he
testified before Congress this week.

President Bush had invested much ot his
Iraq troop-surge strategy in Petraeus, -but
the Army four-star couldn’t close the deal.
The general said several supportive things
from the White House point of view about
the usefulness of the recent escalation in
U.S. troop numbers. But he was not willing
to look into the future and make predic-
tions about the wisdom of fighting on end-
lessly. He’s heard of Vietnam. President
Bush’s speech Thursday evening was
designed to reaffirm an open-ended US.
commitment to his Iraq war policy. But he
faces growing scepticism both in the public
and in Congress.

Bush has gone through multiple rationales
for the war, all of which have been demol-
ished or abandoned. The basic question now
is — what’s the point of this? The military
brass, on the whole, has not been behind
this misadventure. When I sat next to an
admiral at dinner during the 2002 propa-
ganda buildup for the war he said to me, “I
want you to know the military is not for
this.” I couldn’t sleep for nights afterward.

Petraeus, a respected military leader and
no political dummy, told USA Today after
his two days of bipartisan grilling that he
recognized there would not be “national

consent” to anything like another decade |

of “the level of forces we have right now
nor the mission set we have right now.” So
his proposal was to withdraw the thirty thou-
sand troops added in the surge, which creates
an illusion of change. But a troop trim does-
n’t really do anything but acknowledge the
surge made no lasting difference, except to
those who died in combat.

Petraeus insisted his views had not been
vetted in advance by the White House. But
clearly Bush is pulling the strings here, using
Petraeus to justify the surge because the
president lacks the credibility to do it on his
own. The president’s approval of the han-
dling of the Iraq war is now languishing
around thirty-six percent.

. Petraeus, by contrast, had a favourable
rating in a Gallup and USA Today poll of 52
per cent going into the hearings. The
Petraeus report had been oversold as a
bombshell that would consolidate congres-

NOTICE

sional and public opinion and provide polit-
ical cover for a shift in Iraq. But it was all
shell and no bomb. It didn’t clarify a thing
despite the opportunity it afforded ambi-
tious politicians of both parties to pontificate
on their views of what should be done with
the mess Bush made in Iraq. Petraeus
gauged the political reaction to his trans-
parent military tap dance correctly.

Democrats, predictably, were not
impressed. Sen Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y.,
called it “too little and too late, and unac-
ceptable.” Sen Barack Obama, D-Ill, laid
out a plan for immediate withdrawal that
would be faster and larger than the admin-
istration contemplates. There are new bipar-
tisan stirrings on Capitol Hill to nudge the
president toward ways to reduce exposure of
our soldiers to this meaningless war.

This time, Democrats are seeking to lure
Republicans who have been reluctant to
speak out against their president. It sent
shock waves through the GOP when Sen.
Elizabeth Dole, R-N.C., a meek, robotic
Bush fan, suddenly spoke up to criticize the
administration and call for a “policy that
the majority of Americans will support” on
Iraq. Wow. All of this activity is complicat-
ed and mostly done in back rooms. So it’s
not the stirring stuff of verbal combat on
the House or Senate floor

The president simply wants to continue
doing what he wants, which is to dump this
garbage in the lap of his successor and ignore
Congress. But it’s not that easy any more.

Even with Sen. Tim Johnson, D-S.D.,
recovered from his.long illness, Democrats
don’t have the veto-proof margin of 60 votes
they need — but they are creeping closer.
And if the situation in Iraq continues to
deteriorate, they may get the votes to pass
tougher measures and push the administra-
tion toward a strategic exit. Most of their
efforts are aimed at making life better for the
troops, with more reasonable rotation poli-
cies, for instance.

Petraeus could not say whether he thought
the war had made America safer. But it
would be a start to make American soldiers
safer.

Time to be
accountable
for tourism

EDITOR, The Tribune

HOW long will we be
deceived and complacent?
Actions speak louder than
words and no matter how many
times we say that Tourism ts the
foundation of the Bahaintan
economy, if our aculons do not
demonstrate it then we are not
being realistic or truthful!

It is time to wake up into
accountability Bahamas, for the
time has come and gone for us
to stop feasting at the table otf
mediverity and now ts the time
to upgrade our mindset along
with our resources. and our
actions and investments need
to corroborate with our state
ments and assertions.

The newly named interna-
tional airport has the potential
to be so much more than the
antiquated, unfinished mon
strosity that it is today, and
being the primary point of entry
to our many visitors. it seems
almost redundant to draw atten-
tion to the many flaws, and yet,
atter 20 plus years, it is still ina
poor condition. Many of the
changes and renovations need-

wed are not even ‘major’ in
nature, but almost common-
sense and obvious, and yet, they
remain undone.

Since the international airport
is located in the nation’s capi-
tal, New Providence, and, has
been newly named after Sir
Lynden O Pindling, it would be
a step forward in the right direc-
tion to have a portrait and short
bio of the man for whom the
airport was named. In addition,
names/captions are needed for

all of the portraits in the ‘walk of

fame’. especially since the time
was taken to attain and mount
the pictures for public viewing



Dawes

letters@tribunemedia.net




In addition, why aren’t there
more kiosks at the airport, espe-
cially Bahamian owned? For
example Bertha’s, Bahamian
Kitchen, Twin Brothers (for
that last daiquiri and conch frit-
ter), Bamboo Shack to name a
few, could provide that last little
taste of the islands before
departing. And even if it is not
feasible for these companies to
open a kiosk, the point remains
that something has to be done

to improve the variety of—

Bahamian services provided to
our guests and residents alike.

And, of course, what exactly
is the bathroom situation? Is
the present condition truly the
best that the Bahamas has to
offer?

And speaking of bathroom
situations, when will the Straw
Market be a sanitized area for
staff and patrons alike? Don’t
get me wrong though, I am not
speaking politically, but nation-
ally, for regardless of who the
governing party is, we as
Bahamians are depending on
tourism and if we do not ensure
that our facilities and services
are of the highest quality then
we have no one to blame but
ourselves.

Instead of pointing fingers at
who is to blame, we need to
unite, focus and get the job
done. A certain international
investor has built up to three
phases of a project on Paradise
Island while we locals argue
about the proposed structure
and location of the straw mar-
ket. Bay Street. like the inter-

national airport is a place fre-
quented by tourists and locals
alike, and yet, it is also un-
Bahamiansed and in poor con-
dition, and it doesn’t reflect the
Bahamian commitment to
excellence in service to all, in
fact, Marina Village seems to
present more of the ‘island
flavour’ than the main thor-
oughfare in our nation’s capi-
tal and that is unacceptable!

So, if we truly do mean what
we say, and Tourism is really
our main industry and form of
income then it is time to
demonstrate it and put our
money where our mouth is and
invest where it counts — we are
not an extension of Florida,
even though we are very close
in proximity — we are an inde-
pendent country, an archipel-
ago of beautiful, unique, pro-
ductive islands and it behooves
us Bahamians and locals alike
to embrace and promote our
Bahamian culture, through our
creativity, friendliness, integrity,
sounds, tastes, sights, national
resources, services and facili-
ties. And we are doing a disser-
vice to ourselves and our
descendants when we cheapen
the quality of our life, by short
changing the way we invest and
promote ourselves and our
country.

Now is the time for us to
prove in the way we communi-
cate, invest and keep our sur-
roundings that ‘it just keeps get-
ting better in the Bahamas’ and
demonstrate that Tourism is our
country’s number one industry,
in fact, I double dog dare you

and sisters.

However, there is another
problem in our country which
we need to face as it is not going
anywhere and at some point
and time it will touch all of our
lives in one way or the other
and that problem is AIDS.

The AIDS Foundation is
doing what it can. The clinic is
being run efficiently and in a
successful manner. The med-
ications are being dispensed
free of charge and on this side it
seems everything is being run
smoothly. The donations even
though generous as they may
seem that come in from the Red
Ribbon Ball and Kerzner Int’l
are only scratching the surface.

The two wards which are the
Sealy or Female Chest and the
Corey Newbold of Male Chest
wards are in dire need of being
totally refurbished. The beds
need to be replaced as the
wheel cogs are infested with
roaches and this is where they
breed. All of the nightstands
needs to be replaced as this is
also a breeding ground for
roaches. There is a need for a
retrigerator for the patients to
use and this, of course, will help
to eliminate the roach problem
as no tood would need to be
lett on the stands at night as it
can be secured in the proper
place. The Sealy Ward also
needs a new television as the

one that is there is not working
properly, it is like these wards
have been completely forgot-
ten.

There are only 13 beds on the
Sealy ward and, of course, 13
nightstands so the refurbish-
ment of this ward should not
cost as much as the dialysis
equipment. Now the Corey
Newbold ward probably has
about 20 to 25 beds and night-
stands and I don't knew
whether or not they have a
refrigerator for the patients or
even a workable television.

So, this letter is to throw out a
challenge to the people of the
Bahamas and its corporate citi-
zens as well as the newspapers,
which include The Nassau
Guardian and The Punch, to
take up this cause and run with
it like was done for the dialysis
unit and see to it that the Sealy
and Corey Newbold wards are
refurbished.

You never know when this
sickness will hit you close to
home.

Thank you, my Bahamian
brothers and sisters, for your
kind donations to this worthy
cause.

Jamaica poll’

mg JAMAICA
Kingston

HUNDREDS of votes found
uncounted in two ballot boxes
would not have changed the
outcome of parliamentary races
in the Caribbean country, a
Jamaican judge ruled, accord-
ing to Associated Press.

After a tally of the votes —
from security forces and elec-
tion workers who voted a week
before the September 3 general
elections — it was determined
that they would not have made
a difference in the results, Mag-
istrate Sara James-Thompson
said Wednesday.

Elections Director Danville
Walker said officials inadver-
tently stored the two boxes
from the eastern parish of St
Mary along with 280 counted
ones in canvassing headquar-
ters in the capital of Kingston.

"We regret the inconvenience
and disquiet that our mistake has
caused and apologise," Walker
said in a statement Wednesday
before the votes were counted.
"We assure the public that this
was not intentional or done to
favor any candidate."

Prime Minister Bruce Gold-
ing led the Jamaica Labor Par-
ty to a narrow victory and a 33-
27 parliamentary majority in the
vote, ousting the country's first
female prime minister, Portia
Simpson Miller. He was sworn
in Tuesday.

A TWO-DAY-OLD strike
by cane cutters and other sugar
workers will continue until the
state-owned Guyana Sugar Cor-
poration agrees to increase
wages by 12 per cent, union offi-
cials said Wednesday, accord-
ing to Associated Press.

The strike by 15,000 workers
at coastal estates has already
cost the company known as
Guysuco 3,000 tons of sugar
production and losses will
exceed US$2 millionif it con-
tinues a third day, said Paul
Bhim, a company spokesman.

The Guyana Agriculture
Workers Union called the work
stoppage Tuesday after rejecting
proposed pay increases of 6.5 per
cent, saying that would not allow
workers to keep up with the rising
cost of food and other basic items.

No meetings have been
planned with company officials,
union treasurer Rooplall Per-
saud said.

Guysuco, the largest sugar pro-
ducer in the Caribbean, is expect-
ed to yield 281,000 tons this year,
most of it for export to Europe.

PRIME Minister Hubert
Ingraham is leading a delega-
tion to a historic CARICOM
meeting in Trinidad on the
fight against non-communica-
ble diseases.

Chronic non-communicable
diseases such as diabetes and
hypertension have been iden-
tified as being major killers
throughout the Caribbean.

The CARICOM Heads of
Government Summit on
Chronic Non-Communicable
Diseases (CNCDs) was
launched on September 12 at a
media clinic via video confer-
ence organised by the CARI-
COM Secretariat.

It is being held under the
theme: Stemming the tide of
non-communicable diseases in
the Caribbean.

In his opening statement,
Prime Minister of ‘Trinidad and
Tobago Patrick Manning, who
will host this summit on Sat-
urday, said the major objec-
tives are: informing the region
of the magnitude of the prob-

‘lem, devising strategies for pre-

vention of risk factors and
establishing a collective
approach for accelerating the
management and control of
the diseases.

According to Prime Minis-
ter Manning, the statistics on
NCDs in the Caribbean were
alarming and while many
strides had been made in
health development in the

‘region, there is still room for

improvement.
However, he affirmed the

region’s commitment to give
priority to the issue.

“That we are meeting as
heads of government on this
matter indicates the priority
that CARICOM has placed on
the topic,” Mr Manning said.

He pointed to initial pre-
ventive steps taken to curtail
NCDs, including the imposi-
tion of tax on tobacco in some
member states as a major step.

Mr Manning said he hopes
the summit would not only
devise strategies to stem NCDs
but would also identify and
treat the root causes.

He also called for the full
support of the media in part-

nering with the community in a
comprehensive public educa-
tion programme on lifestyle
management.

Chairman of the Caribbean
Commission on Health and
Development (CCHD) Sir
George Alleyne said the sum-
mit would not only focus on
individual responsibility for the
reduction of NCDs but would
also examine the need for
heads of government and oth-
er policy makers to create an
enabling environment which
would empower individuals to
manage their own lifestyle.

Mr Ingraham left for the
conference yesterday at 6am.

Why you vex?

@ Compiled By TANEKA
THOMPSON

Tribune Staff Reporter
whyyouvex@tribunemedia.net

“I VEX, because of the
amount of violence in our
schools as. of late. I think
these incidents in the past
couple of days have brought
to light a wider issue, not just
school security. It was just
coincidental that these stab-
bings happened when police
were removed . .. these inci-
dents stem from matters out-
side the school.”

— A concerned young man

“The Ministry of Tourism
building on George Street
appearance is on par with the
Straw Market. The parking
spaces provided for the MPs
on Parliament Street are
grimy and dirty with faded
parking lines, and grass is
growing all over the steps
near the Speaker’s office. I
vex because the people who
run the country don’t see
these things.”

-— A concerned citizen.

“T vex because every time I
open a carton of eggs at least

four eggs in each carton is
cracked. I have to stand there
and examine every egg in the
carton and exchange the
cracked ones for good ones
from other cartons. I thought
I was supposed to be paying
for good whole eggs. Some
time ago cracked eggs were
50 per cent off regular prices.
Now we, as consumers are
getting cracked eggs at regu-
lar prices. This is cheating the
consumer and is disgusting!
While we are on the subject
of eggs, the cartons plainly
say that the eggs are either
large or extra large, but when
you open the cartons only
small eggs are inside — have
you seen any cartons lately
that say ‘small or medium
eggs? They look more like
bird eggs! This is why I vex.

— Ruth, an angry shopper.

“T am vex at the way the
PLP is promoting social
unrest in the country through
their website by telling so
much lies. and half truths.
(The party) has to get over
the election and move on
towards building the nation
by working with the FNM.”

Redevelopment of Win

WINDERMERE Island,
Eleuthera — The Windermere
Island Club, where England's
Royal family once vacationed, is
about to be expanded and
restored to its glory days.

Sitting on 165 acres of land,
the new development will fea-
ture 52 family compounds with
an ocean view and 31 cottages.

The famous Windermere
Island Hotel, established in the
1950s, will be transformed into
a boutique, inn and spa.

Windermere Island North
Development Ltd, said it select-
ed the island for its privacy and
serenity.

The company pledged to “go

the natural landscape and open
spaces.

along with Deputy Prime Min-
ister Brent Symonette, toured
the resort site on the seven-mile-
long private island.

and Caribbean region.

The bank said it has commis-
sioned a new jingle that captures
the message that RBC wants to
communicate to its customers
“in a memorable and engaging
melody set to the rhythms and
sounds of the Caribbean”.

A team of musicians and
bank employees from around
the region participated in the
creation of the jingle that was
finally sung by Bahamian per-
former Alia Coley and co-pro-
duced by musicians Fred Fer-
guson who led the project, and
Sammie Poitier.

The final lyrics were written
by Alia Coley.

“We wanted to ensure that
the musical style was authenti-
cally Caribbean,” said Mr Fer-

of the Grammy Award-winning

“While being firm and
relentless in our approach, we
have to do all we can to reduce
crime from every angle, every
aspect. One of the challenges
police may be faced with is
knives can be used for legiti-
mate purposes, they can be
used for household means.
Virtually anyone can get their
hands on a sharp instrument,”
he noted.

“We are particularly con-
cerned with the number of
stabbings we have seen in
recent times, especially those
matters which have taken
place in our schools. Much
more can be done, but we
need the full support of the
community to help reform, in
this case, our young men.”

on information received from
the public, when they found
an AK 47 weapon concealed in
a plastic bag.

Later that same day, Thurs-
day, detectives were patrolling
Bozine Town when they
approached two men near an
abandoned house acting in

what police described as a sus-
picious manner.

The men fled the scene and
officers gave chase. Although
they didn’t catch the men, they
retrieved an illegal weapon,
ASP Evans said.

On Thursday afternoon,
officers from the Southern
Police Station on patrol in the
Big Pond area saw a blue vehi-
cle acting suspiciously.

According to police, the four
male occupants sped off and
officers gave chase. As a result
the vehicle was stopped near
Water Street and two of the
four occupants were captured.
A 9mm handgun was confis-
cated.

ASP. Evans DEU officers,
acting on a tip from the public,
uncovered a “knapsack” con-
tarming 188 live rounds of
ammunition near the Sports
Centre on Poinciana Drive on
Thursday afternoon. Investi-

nature of Hutehinson’s injuries
was blunt trauma to his nght eve

Dame Joan also answered |
critics who charged that the

courts too often granted bail to
alleged offenders.

“Yes, you complain about us

that we give bail, but there is

“The constitution of the !

Bahamas says no man or

within a reasonable time.”

Dame Joan said “there is no,

quick solution” to the problem
of crime in the country.

“It’s been allowed to go too
long,” she said. “You’ve had 30

years from Independence and .

more, and you’ve done nothing
to build a nation.

“All you do is to whine and
complain, and blame whoever is
in political power and whoever
is in the church and whoever is
there,” she said.

These groups all come from
the society, Dame Joan remind-
ed the audience, therefore all
Bahamians share collective
blame for the current situation.

“The nation is full of pre-
tenders, pontificators and insin-
cere people,” Dame Joan added
later in her remarks.

Bishop Simeon Hall.also
echoed the message of Dame
Joan, stating that the way for-
ward in tackling increased vio-

MINISTER OF Tourism Neko Grant as he launched the new tourism- oe

awareness campaign

“MY Bahamas: Let’s make it
better...again” — a national
tourism awareness campaign,
was launched this week by Min-
ister of Tourism and Aviation
Neko Grant.

The government says the

campaign will use a combina- .

tion of media strategy and com-
munity programmes to focus
attention on how vital tourism is
to the national economic well-
being.

“As tourism is everybody's
business and it takes all of us
to ensure its success, | invite all
Bahamians to embrace this
cause,” Mr Grant said.

Leading stakeholders in

S;



tourism met at the British Colo-
nial Hilton on Wednesday as
Mr Grant unveiled the min-
istry’s campaign package.

He was accompanied by Min-
ister of State Branville McCart-
ney, Director General of
Tourism Vernice Walkine, and
Permanent Secretary Archie
Nairn.

The ‘My Bahamas’ logo will
feature the Bahamas’ tourism
brand identity (featuring all the

_ islands) being served on a plate

by a white gloved hand. It was
designed by Kendal Major.
“Due to the nature of the
tourism and hospitality indus-
try,” said Mr Grant, “a decision

LEADING STAKEHOLDERS in tourism attended the Ministry of Touris-



m’s launch of its new awareness campaign

was made to make impeccable
service the focal point.

“The gloved hand symbolises
the sophistication and the dig-
nity of our industry.”

Already banners have been
set up at strategic points
throughout New Providence
and the islands featuring a sin-
gle piece of a puzzle with the
question “Where do you fit in?”

Jingles are employed to rein-
force the theme. To show the
importance of tourism to the
national economy, radio adver-
tisements will illustrate “The
house that tourism built”, and

television spots will pay tribute
to tourism’s high performers.

Substantial public relations
and field programmes will also
be launched “to ensure that the
hard work that we are speak-
ing about is also being tackled
in the trenches in the real
world,” said Mr Grant.

The minister also announced
partnerships with the Bahamas
Out Islands Promotion Board,
the Bahamas Humane Society,
and the Department of Envi-
ronmental Health Services.

He encouraged Bahamians to
take pride in their surroundings;

keep their communities safe;
render professional service; take
advantage of untapped business
opportunities, and introduce
innovative entertainment and
attractions.

“We challenge each person
to take a hard and honest look
at ourselves, our attitudes, and
whether our actions truly
demonstrate a love and pride
for this country and who we
are,” said Mr Grant.

While the Bahamas remains
competitive, having achieved

various levels of international
preeminence, slipping standards
must be arrested, the minister
observed.

“We will be reaching out to
every Bahamian, including
every conceivable segment of
the population to be part of our
endeavors.

“A country does not become
and remain great through sheer
luck. It takes work, and ‘My
Bahamas’ is an opportunity to
show ownership of our coun-
try.”

first spade, declarer suddenly real-
ized he was in deep trouble. He did
the best he could by playing the K-Q
of spades and conceding a trick to the
jack in hopes the defenders would try
to cash a heart before taking two dia-
monds. In that case, he could ruff the
heart and dispose of his third dia-
mond on dummy’s fifth club.

But West returned the three of
diamonds after winning the spade,
and East had no trouble diagnosing
the situation. Since West had led
high-low in diamonds, indicating a
doubleton, East knew declarer had
started with three cards in the suit. So
after taking the second diamond,
East played another diamond to set
the contract one trick.

South should have recognized at
the outset the danger posed by a 4-0
spade division — certainly a strong
possibility on the bidding — and
stopped to consider what he could do
to counter that threat. Had he done
so, he might have found the solution.

The winning play is simple, but
not obvious. All South has to do is to
refuse to take the first diamond trick!
If West started with a:doubleton dia-
mond — a virtual certainty given the
bidding and opening lead — the con-
tract is assured.

Assuming West continues with a
diamond, declarer takes the ace and
plays four rounds of trump. West
wins the fourth spade but cannot
returm a diamond, and South is home.

Taurus, and it could be due to. that
new relationship which is blossom-
ing. Expect some good fortune to
arrive in your wallet as well.

GEMINI - May 22/June 21
Spent another all-nighter worrying
about work issues? Don’t let your job
take up more than its necessary share
of your day. This is an unhealthy way
to live so make a change soon.
CANCER - June 22/July 22
You have plenty of plans and ambi-
tions, yet few resources to make the
dreams a reality. It’s best if you
start seeking assistance in influen-
tial places. Consult Scorpio for
some expertise. i

LEO - July 23/August 23

A visit to the doctor has you upset, but
there’s no need to be, Leo. You are
making a mountain out of a molehill.
Do some Internet research and ask
around — you'll get find some clarity.

VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22
Sometimes it seems like life is just
passing you by, right Virgo? It’s
fine time you stop watching the
train scoot by and climb aboard.
Cancer takes the ride, too.

LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23
A new business venture has you see-
ing green — profits that is, Libra. Yet,
all is not what it seems, so don’t rush
into anything just yet. Concentrate on
some research before investing.

SCORPIO — Oct 24/Nov 22
As usual, in your quest to be “the
best” you’ve taken on more than you
can handle, Scorpio. You may just
have to give in to defeat for once.
Forget about extra work on Monday.
SAGITTARIUS — Nov 23/Dec 21
You've taken a gamble on that
attractive stranger and now you’re
ready to see if this person is the one.
If you don’t find a connection by
Thursday, it might be best to throw |
this one back and keep fishing.

CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20
Someone close to you is giving you
bad vibes this week, Capricorn. Trust
your intuition but don’t make any rash
moves. Ask Virgo for a second opinion.
Make time for fun on Wednesday.

AQUARIUS -— Jan 21/Feb 18

After a bit of consideration, you’ve
decided to play ‘the wanderer” for a
while. An extended vacation or just a
time for reflection seems best. Make

'} this a solo trip to really reap the benefits.

PISCES — Feb 19/March 20
If your pockets seem empty, Pisces, it
could be that you haven’t been as
thrifty as you hoped. Perhaps birthday
tiches will come your way next week
when you wish on your candles.

CHESS by Leonard Barden



(2pm start) at Simpsons in the
Strand, where spectators can
watch the games free in the
upstairs bar.
