ALL teachers are back to
work at RM Bailey School
following a tense stand-off
over increased security, which
led the ministry to threaten
termination if they did not
return to work.

Principal Julian Anderson
confirmed that the remain-
ing 18 teachers went back to
their classrooms yesterday
after a week-long sit-out.

The protest began after an
altercation between a male

biology teacher and two male .

students, leading teachers to
demand more security on the
campus, including a call for
the return of police by some.

The initial sit-out included
a large number of teachers,







with the majority of this

group — some 70 teachers —-

returning to the classroom
last Thursday.

Mr Anderson told The Tri-
bune that four additional
security officers have been
sent to the school, but he
emphasised that, despite
national attention on his
school, R M Bailey is not a
violent institution.

“We here at R.M Bailey
are in pursuit of excellence,
which is our theme for this
school year. The matter has
been resolved and we have
put that behind us. And we
are embarking on a journey
to make R M Bailey the
school of choice, not only on
the island of New Providence,

POLICE officers should not

child protection activist Clever

In an interview with The Tri-

officers should not be placed in
public schools.

He also suggested that gov-
ernment enact legislation to

:. make parents more responsible

for their children.

“When we have to resort to
putting police officers in schools
it takes way from the primary
purpose of the school. It should
be an environment conducive
to learning,” said Mr Dun-
combe.

“What are we saying when
we put police officers in schools,

2]; 000 scam victims from Madagascar were
set to travel to Bahamas for non-existent work

ALMOST 30,000 people from Mada-.

gascar were set to travel to the Bahamas,

this month in the hopes of finding a better
life before they discovered that they had
become the victims of an elaborate scam.

The BBC yesterday reported that at the
beginning of August a Mauritian busi-
nessman, Steve Turmell, arrived in Mada-
gascar claiming he was recruiting new
employees for a company called West
Palm Garments and Textiles. He also
claimed that this company was based in
the Bahamas.

According to the Madagascar govern-
ment, some 27,000 Malagasy — the ethnic

group which forms the majority of the
island nation’s population — applied for
jobs at the fictional company in an attempt
to escape the poverty in Madagascar and
start a new life in the Bahamas.

Of the applicants, the BBC said, some
3,987 people paid as much as $100 into

‘Turmell’s bank account for vaccinations,

passport fees and other formalities.

In a country where the average wage is
less than a dollar a day, $100 constitutes a
considerable sum and many Malagasy sold
their properties to come up with the mon-
ey.

Turmell told the applicants that they

would be travelling to the Bahamas by
mid-September of this year.

Authorities of the small Indian Ocean
nation became suspicious after thousands
of people suddenly applied for passports at
the same time.

Laureat Rasolofoniainarison, secretary
general of Madagascar's Ministry of
Works, told the BBC that, after checking
with their embassy in Washington, DC,
and with.help from the Bahamian govern-
ment they found there was no company
called West Palm Garments and Textiles

THE TRIBUNE



Couple to push for court sys
overhaul with online

A COUPLE whose long fight
for justice is heading for the
Privy Council are planning an
online petition to push for a
complete overhaul of the
Bahamas court system.

Greg and Tanya Cash say
there is a groundswell of opin-

ion in the country calling for a_

major review of every aspect of
the judicial process - including
the way judges are appointed.

“This can’t go on,” Mrs Cash

told The Tribune yesterday.
“We are raising this petition as
part of our Privy Council pre-
sentation, so we urge every per-
son with a grievance against the

courts, or who simply support |

our cause, to lend their weight
to this campaign.”
_ Mrs Cash said it was impor-
tant for every Bahamian and
foreigner living in the country -
and for the future of the econo-
‘my, especially with regard to
inward investment - that the jus-
tice system should work prop-
erly.

At the moment, she added,
no-one had any faith in the sys-

_ tem, as indicated by response

cod

to a Tribune story earlier this
week in which Mr and Mrs
Cash outlined their latest diffi-
culties with the courts.

“We have had tremendous.

support from ordinary Bahami-

ans who have also been denied

their rights before the courts,”
she said.

“It is clear that very many
people are unhappy with what is
happening here. There is no jus-

tice in this country.”





Greg and Tanya Cash

Meanwhile, Mr and Mrs Cash
are hoping to meet Attorney
General Claire Hepburn to out-
line their concerns.

They claim that court officials
are trying to block their Privy
Council action by refusing to
notarise affidavits essential for
the hearing.

“We are going to raise this
petition to take to parliament,
but also to support our case
before the Privy Council. One
of our key points will be the
way judges are appointed. We
feel this needs to be looked at

very closely.”

Mr and Mrs Cash have been
battling the Baptist education
authorities for five years fol-
lowing Mr Cash’s dismissal as

They claim that the courts

met further obstacles that they
are determined to seek a ruling
from the London-based Privy
Council.

“Because we can’t get justice
in our own country, we are hav-
ing to seek it in a foreign land,”
said Mrs Cash.

Earlier this year, Mr Cash’s
“unfair dismissal” claim against
the Baptists led to a $26,000
Supreme Court judgment in his
favour, but he has dismissed
this as a “derisory” sum and has
lodged an appeal.

It is because their appeal has

Proposed legislation
has stiff penalties for
dog and cock-fighting ©

DOG-FIGHTING and cock-fighting will-carry heavy penal...
ties - possibly jail terms - under proposed legislation vee ani-—
‘mal activists hope will soon be passed into law.”

Both activities are seen by animal lovers as “polluting” the
Bahamian culture, having been brought in from outside the
country.

Yesterday, well-known Nassau vet Dr Peter Bizzell urged
the government to push the Animal Protection and Control Bill
through parliament to bring the Bahamas up to international
standards on animal welfare.

He said several experts had spent a long time - including
weekend work - to prepare a 44-page propose bill » bring ani-
mal laws up to date.

This, he said, had been completed in the summer of 2005 by
an ad hoc committee of animal specialists. “We were told by
ministers in the old government that it would become law by
Christmas of that year,” he said.

Now it was time for the legislation to be passed to bring the
Bahamas up to international standards, he said.

“Animal lovers and haters want it done for different rea-
sons, so it’s a win-win situation,” he told The Tribune.

The bill addresses every aspect of animal ownership and
treatment and outlaws loose dogs on the street.

Dr Bizzell said: “It also imposes stiff penalties on those tak-
ing part in cock- -fighting or dog-fighting.

“Cock-fighting is part of Haitian culture and dog-fighting is
part of the culture in the southern United States.

“However, Bahamians are friendly and affable people. We
can’t let our culture get polluted by alien cultural elements.”

His comments came as five men in Britain faced jail for
organising what was described as “one of the worst dog fights
ever” between two pitbulls. Five more men face big fines.

One of the dogs involved died of its wounds, the other had to
be put down, after a fight lasting more than two hours.

Dr Bizzell said: “Dog fighting goes right to the heart of the
animal cruelty problem. When people conspire to orchestrate
acts of cruelty, it is catering to the most ugly side of humanity.”

Cock-fighting has been going on in Haitian communities in the
Bahamas for some time while dog-fighting is widely suspected
in some Family Island areas. In fact, an organised cock-fighting
ring es broken up in Spanish Wells a year ago. Several men
weré arrested.

Vicious dogs are seen by some young men as symbolic of
their own toughness. Pitbulls have been imported, not only for
fighting but as fashion statements.

Meanwhile, stray dog numbers in Nassau are down, accord-
ing to Dr Bizzell, mainly because of a successful neutering pro-
gramme anda virulent distemper outbreak.

The Proud Paws campaign had, he said, neutered 5, 000 ani-
mals in the last five years.

Fidel Castro
looks healthier in
- first official video
in more than
three months

HB HAVANA

FIDEL CASTRO looked
alert and healthier in a
video taped Friday, the first
images released of the ail-
ing 81-year-old leader in
more than three months,
according to Associated
Press.

In the images aired unex-
pectedly on state television
Friday evening, Castro
wore a red, blue and white
jumpsuit with “F. Castro”
in small block letters. The
Cuban leader spoke slowly
and softly and didn’t always
look the interviewer in the
eye, but appeared to be
thinking clearly.

Officials broke into regu-
larly scheduled program-
ming only minutes earlier
to announce that an hour-
long “conversation” with
Castro would be shown.

Castro mentioned the

_ price of oil and the value of
the Euro against the dollar,
evidence that the video was
recorded Friday, as Cuban

. Officials said. At times, it



was hard to follow his train
of thought as he spoke
about a wandering essay he
published in state media
Wednesday.

At first, Castro often
trailed off mid-sentence,
and needed some prompt-
ing. But he appeared to get
stronger and more comfort-
able as time passed. His
eyes and facial expression
were clear.

Castro has not been since
in public since July 31, ;
2006, when he announced
that emergency intestinal
surgery was forcing him to
step down in favor-of a pro-
visional government head-
ed by his younger brother
Raul.

For months, official pho-
tographs and videos
showed Castro’s recovery,
but no new images had sur-
faced since he appeared i in

an interview on: Cuban tele- 38

vision June 5. ev

Vice President Carlos
Lage told reporters earlier
Friday that the essays Cas-
tro has signed every few
days since late March are
evidence that his health is
\strong.

“Fidel continues to recu-
perate. It’s a productive
recuperation as we can see
in the press,” said Lage,
apparently referring to the
publication in state news-
papers of Castro’s “Reflec-
tions of the Commander in
Chief.”

Foreign Minister Felipe
Perez Roque added that
“Fidel is recovering with
discipline and IJ think that
he’s having a productive
work period — reading,
studying, writing and keep-
ing up with and participat-
ing in the country’s princi-
pal decisions.”

As he recovers in an
undisclosed location, Cas-
tro’s condition and exact
ailment are state secrets,
though he wrote in one of
his essays that he had
undergone multiple surg-
eries, at least one of which
went poorly.

Castro also suggested he
can’t be bothered to trim
his beard or comb his hair
— possibly explaining why
so few official images have
been released.

Mitchell: FNM ‘mistaken’ on decision
not to sign agreement with Europe

OPPOSITION spokesman
on foreign affairs Fred
Mitchell says the FNM gov-
ernment is “mistaken” over its
decision not to sign an Eco-
nomic Partnership Agreement
with Europe.

The agreement would have
benefited — among others — the
Bacardi Company, which. has
announced that it is leaving
the Bahamas to move to Puer-
to Rico “...even though they
did not cite the fact of no EPA
as a factor”, said Mr Mitchell.

“Our own government, I
think mistakenly, has
announced that they will not
sign the agreement in Decem-
ber. I think that this removes
the pressure on our country to
modernise itself,” he said.

The former foreign minister
was speaking in Miami at
‘AfrICANDO 2007 - African
cultures and development’; a
conference of the Washington
DC based Foundation for
Democracy in Africa. ©

Mr Mitchell called upon the
delegates to embrace the val-
ues of self-reliance and raised
the possibilities for co-opera-
tion in tourism across the dias-

ora.

“Self reliance . ... must infect
the governance issues that
have to be addressed . . . It
infect the way we
approach our international
treaties and the obligations
that arise from them... . (and)

will also remove the beggar
mentality that is so often pre-
sent in international fora...
and the view that Africa is just
a big basket case,” Mr
Mitchell said.

“Africans must marshal
their own resources”, said the
former foreign minister, “one
policy ought to be the part-
nering with Caribbean coun-
tries and countries in Africa
on tourism matters.

“The possibilities for
tourism development are end-
less and the Caribbean has the
expertise and the know-how
to help Africa develop this
tourist potential.

“Clearly these alternatives

assistance, trade nof aid and
its adjunct foreign direct
investment ... continue to be
in the mix of policy initiatives
but coming from out of the
mist is the old, tried and true

resources to achieve the goals
for Africa and its diaspora.”
Mr Mitchell accepted the

invitation as a luncheon -

keynote speaker to the 10th

sium while in opposition, he
said, as part of a process “to
work on ideas for the future,

FREEPORT - Police say a
group of more than 20 Haitian
immigrants claim they paid
$77,000 to a Bahamian boat
captain and a Haitian man
who dropped them off on
Bimini — instead of taking
them.to Miami.

This is the latest of several
groups of suspected illegal
immigrants apprehended with-
in the past few weeks in both
north and south Bimini.

Chief Supt Basil Rahming
said that three different
groups of Haitian immigrants
were discovered and arrested
on the small island this week.

He reported that police and
immigration officers on duty
at the South Bimini Interna-
tional Airport received infor-
mation around 3.30pm on
Tuesday that a number of per-
sons had been spotted in the
bushes at the eastern end of
the runway.

When officers went to inves-
tigate, they reportedly discov-
ered eight Haitians — seven
women. and one man.

They were taken in custody
and moved to the Alice Town
Police Station on north Bimi-
ni.
The second group was

Pakistan’s crisis, and ours

PAKISTAN is suffering through many crises
at once. Front and centre is a political power
struggle that illustrates the continuing tension in
Pakistan between democratic structures and a
vulnerability to military rule. Simultaneously,
the state is confronting violence from Islamist
extremists that extends into Islamabad, the cap-
ital; clashes in the Pushtun tribal areas between
the military and local forces hosting the Afghan
Taliban and Al Qaeda; a nationalist rebellion in
Baluchistan; the lingering conflict with India

over Kashmir; and simmering popular resent-:
ment at Musharraf’s alliance with the United
States.

Because Pakistan has become an indispens-
able partner in the fight against jihadist terror-
ism and because it is a nuclear power, Wash-
ington cannot be indifferent to the outcome of

Pakistan’s political and security crises. But the .

Bush administration must be careful to distin-
guish immediate concerns about Musharraf’s
fate from America’s long-term interest ina sta-
ble democratic Pakistan.

It is true, as Musharraf and his backers like to
recall, that the civilian governments of the two
exiled former prime ministers, Benazir Bhutto
and Nawaz Sharif, were stained by corruption.
It is also true that Islamist forces have flourished
under military dictatorships.

Under present conditions, open US support
for Musharraf only inflames popular indignation

against America as a backer of military rule. .

At the same time, it paints him as the pawn of a
superpower that many Pakistanis have come
to regard either as a flighty ally or as hostile to
Muslims. Justified or not, those views must be

- taken into consideration as the administration
’ weighs its policy options for a Pakistan in crisis.

Quietly, Washington ought to welcome what
‘Musharraf's lawyer told the Pakistani Supreme
Court this week: that the general will relinquish
his post as army chief of staff if he wins a pres-
idential election that is to be conducted before
Oct..15 by the current Parliament and provincial
‘assemblies. This gesture is a belated conces-
sion to Pakistani legal norms, and it will hardly
satisfy critics who say Musharraf is still violating
the Constitution by running for a third term.
‘These critics also complain that he disregarded
a Supreme Court ruling in his treatment of:
Sharif, the. exiled leader of a major political
party. When the former prime minister flew
into Islamabad a week ago, Musharraf deport-
ed him back to Saudi Arabia.

The more Musharraf bows to the democrat-

~ ic. will of the public and to constitutional rules

affirmed by an independent judiciary, the better
for Pakistan and for long-term US interests.

». The United States should place itself on the
' side of democratic legitimacy in Pakistan, not on

the side of a general willing to bend the rules to

stay in power

Bush’s legacy will include the war

LOOK at them run, all the Republican and
Democratic candidates for president.

- They have been at it for many months now,
charging ever harder toward a goal that’s still
more than a year away — debating, unveiling
policy proposals, burnishing their images.
Running for president takes a lot of work and
even more money, and it’s clear that Romney,
Giuliani, Clinton, McCain, Obama, et al., real-
ly want to end up in the Oval Office.

Each of them had better want the presi-
dency, and want it bad, because it has become
increasingly clear since Gen. David Petraeus’
testimony on Capitol Hill that, along with the
keys to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue and Air

Force One, President Bush plans to hand his.

successor the situation in Iraq, more or less as
we have known it for more than four years
now.

The White House has played up a plan to -

bring home about 30,000 troops from Iraq
before next summer, billing this a “return on
success,” even though it appears that troop
rotations and the limits of the U.S. military
would make such a move necessary regardless
of circumstances. ; ; *



Thus will the American presence in Iraq
be drawn down to pre-“surge” levels, which

~ seems to leave us — and Iraq — where We ©
were when the Baker-Hamilton Iraq Study

Group delivered its recommendations last
December and President Bush decided not
to take them.

This week, Sen. Hillary Clinton outlined a
health-care proposal that would cost an esti-
mated $110 billion a year. Other candidates
have made their own financially and politi-
cally ambitious proposals in recent weeks and

‘months, and more are sure to come. Whatev-

er plans the next president may have for
America, though, will have to be tempered
by a budgetary reality that not only includes
huge deficits but also what is now a $2 bil-
lion-a-week outlay for the war in Iraq.

The next president’s options when it comes

‘to dealing with foreign crises are also likely to

be curtailed by the logistical and diplomatic
realities that go along with having more than

_ 130,000 troops and all their equipment tied
. down in Iraq.

The PLP has —

‘deteriorated’

EDITOR, The Tribune.

I NEVER thought that I
would live long enough to say
that the PLP has deteriorat-
ed to the bowels of the gut-

ter. I am a PLP, my mother

and father are PLP, my grand-
mother and grandfather are
all PLP. I hail from South
Andros and grew up in a PLP
community. We followed the
PLP blindly all of my life.
When someone shouted PLP
we automatically responded
“all the way”.

I have had much time of
reflection and I measure the
PLP today by the way the late
Sir Lynden conducted the
affairs of the country and the
party. The PLP, while it has
some faults still operated with
class..Sir Lynden had his way,
but he was a consummate
politician who:knew the game
well. He was never guessing.

It is embarrassing to see
how Perry Christie has
allowed the PLP to sink to the
deepest part of the sewer. He
has allowed the likes of Fred
Mitchell, as far as I know a
socialist, Allyson Maynard
Gibson, a lady who was well
on her way to starting her own
party, BJ Nottage, a PLP
reject who started the destruc-
tion from outside, and Alfred
Gray, who is not taken seri-
ously by any sober-minded
Bahamian, to change the par-
ty to something that we do not
recognise anymore. The gutter
behaviour and style is not
appealing.

Bahamians who do not say
PLP are ostracized. We actu-
ally hate each other beeause of
the way Mr Christie, Fred
Mitchell, Allyson Gibson and
others who are preaching
doom and destruction to all
Bahamians. We who love the
PLP and the Bahamas cannot
stand idly by and watch it
being destroyed.

The recent behaviour of the
PLP members of parliament
and senators are a clear exam-
ple that someone in the party
must be losing their minds.

The serious beating that we
took, regardless of how much
we try to pretend to have won,
cannot change the fact that
more people voted forthe
FNM than in 2002. They
gained a lot of ground and we
as PLPs are doing precious lit-
tle to cover the ground loss.
We certainly cannot progress
pitting people against their
own family. In small settle-
ments everyone is related.

We deceived the straw ven-

dors, the police, prison over-

leaks

latter ribunemedia.net



seers, teachers, civil servants
and even the people we pre-
tended to hire:just before the
election. We knew that we
were not serious about keep-
ing them on, but we played
with their emotions just to win
votes. That cannot be right
and other PLPs who love the

that something is drastically
wrong. oe

The time has come for M
Christie and his crew, ie Fred
Mitchell, Allyson Maynard-
Gibson, Alfred Gray, Shane
Gibson, and Vincent Peet to ~
hurry off the scene so we can
put some genuine people in
positions that would bring the
PLP back to its prominence.
Otherwise we are doomed for-
ever.

Removing roundabouts —
would ease traffic problems

EDITOR, The Tribune.

PLEASE publish this open letter to
Prime Minister the Rt Hon Hubert Ingraham and the Hon Earl
Deveaux, Minister of Works and Transport.

Dear Sirs:

For quite sometime now I’ve been following the traffic situation
throughout Nassau, especially busy periods.

I believe the solution is very simple but we are focusing other-
wise.

These roundabouts are the major factor. If you see them early
in the mornings, or getting off times in the afternoons, it’s easy to
determine. _

Everyone just pile-up, blocking each other. No one can move for
ages, blocking traffic from every direction, east, west, north and ©
south. \

Because of this, just a few minutes without constant flow the
entire areas are blocked. Drivers frustrated, and no one can real-
ly give way anymore bringing traffic to a complete stop.

By removing the roundabouts you will be able to drive almost
freely regardless of the hours just by having properly timed lights
corresponding with each other and caution lights in certain areas.

These roundabouts create many unnecessary accidents, creating
even more traffic congestions, because of frustrations because
that majority of our drivers still never take the correct lane anyway
even where the lanes are marked.

Let’s forget about this beautification foolishness of roundabouts,
because they are never properly kept anyway. They are mostly eye-
sores. We need to focus on relief, less frustration, unnecessary
accidents and all the other things that can be avoided.

Also the traffic from Kerzner International can be limited by let-
ting them use ferry boats to and from Montagu covering the east-
ern area and to Arawak Cay the central and western area. This will
also take a lot of pressure off the bridges that is so necessary and
will save them for a much longer time and may save us from a
major disaster. This is free consultation.

STOP HIM from interviewing





— Tia, concerned citizen
“An area of land left in

(my neighbourhood) has for

a long time been neglected

by all past governments and
the results have been that the
immediate homeowners have
(taken) the liberty to operate
an illegal auto body repair
shop. . . The one civil servant
who is responsible for the body
work has moved out only tocome
back and pollute the area with the ~
heavy odour of autobody paint that
forces the people next door to close their
home up to avoid the unhealthy chemicals.

I have spoken to the present member of par-
liament and I also made a call to the ministry of
works to try to get the department to stop this
health hazard but no changes so far.

It would be a dream, a long awaited desire of all
the residents of (the) community to have a play
ground for the children,”

— Anthony

I be a good parent to my child it I have to wake

already have spent an hour or more in traffic
how can I be mentally ready to help my child
with homework? Can employers have a heart for
the staff and please have an eight hour work day
or maybe the government needs to address this

problem?”

_. said,

The unit, which has been
operating for around four
months under the recently
implemented Neighbourhood
Policing Initiative, has

_ received an “excellent” com-

munity response, Inspector
Chester Thomas told ‘The Tri-

bune in an interview at:

the South Beach Police Sta-
tion. i

Since its inception, the pro-
gramme has held eight neigh-
bourhood town meetings as
well as established meetings

_ with pastors in the area, he.

added.

According to Mr Thomas,
a resource officer is dis-
patched regularly to patrol
each school in the district and
liaise with principals to dis-
cuss problems the problems
they are facing and formulate
solutions

While there are no police
officers stationed in schools
in the area, patrols are car-
ried out at the start and end of
each school day, Mr Thomas
said, adding there are approx-

imately 10 schools in the

southeastern district.

“We are customer friendly,
we realise that we can’t do
our job by ourselves,” said Mr
Thomas. “So we go out.and
what. we do is build that
bridge of friendship in the
community so they have con-
fidence in us. . . so they will be
able to share things with us. .

.that they wouldn’t normally

share.”

The Tribune was invited on
an exclusive ride with Woman
Sergeant Phyllis Rahming and
Insp Thomas earlier this the
week, as they patrolled “pop-
ular loitering” areas in the
southeastern district.

The unit has two police
vehicles currently operating
on patrol in the area, with
“problem” areas like Nassau
Village and Summer
Haven being the main
targets, Sergeant Rahming

South Beach station aims to restore
trust between the public and police

While on the mid-afternoon
patrol, officers Rahming and
Thomas made several stops
to speak with residents, most-
ly men, about concerns in the
community as well as to hand
out flyers advertising an
upcoming neighbourhood
town meeting.

“We are now empowering
the people of the community
to take control of their com-

munity so if next week the ©

commissioner calls me and
says ‘you’re transferred to
another area’, it would not
affect the programme because
the people will be in power,”
Insp Thomas explained.

Caniz Nelson, of Walnut —

Street, told The Tribune he
only recently became aware

_ of the existence the neigh-

bourhood policing unit and is
looking forward to what the
initiative will accomplish in
his area.

However, not every mem-
ber.of the areas visited was
optimistic about the neigh-

bourhood community initia-

tive.

James Williams, a former
resident of Summer Haven,
said he was skeptical, arguing
that under the former admin-
istration’s Urban Renewal
Programme, he witnessed
“positive changes.”

“T saw less crime in this area
and the police could really
interact with the community,”
he said of Urban Renewal.

Sergeant Rahming said that
while the South Beach Sta-
tion considers the new unit a

success, it is not intended to -

be a “quick fix” and a lot
more hard work has to be
done in the community.

During a general meeting at
union headquarters on Bethel
Avenue yesterday Mrs Poitier-
Turnquest reasserted her con-
trol over the policy and direc-
tion of the union, appearing to
focus directly on Ms Wilson.

Referring to the “two voic-
es” coming from the union, Mrs
Poitier-Turnquest said: “We
have to have one voice. The
spokesman of this union is the

When contacted by The Tri-
bune, Ms Wilson did not want
to comment, but said that “the
one voice” of the union in her
opinion is that of the members.

Union elections are set for
June next year, and sources
indicate that recent differences
in opinion between Ms Wilson
and Mrs Poitier-Turnquest
reflect a wider power struggle

Many expect Ms Wilson to
challenge the president if she
seeks re-election next year.

Out of the same union meet-
ing, union executives appear
poised to survey: the entire
union membership to determine
whether teachers support police
in schools. Currently, the union
officially opposes their rein-
statement.

registered in the Bahamas.

As a consequence, police
immediately arrested
Turmell.

After being questioned by
police earlier this week,
Turmell told the local media
that he will pay back all the
money he had taken.

The Malagasy authorities
estimated that the Maurit-
ian was able to amass almost.
$247,000.

However, Turmell is still
claiming that he is also a vic-
tim in this case. He claimed
that he is working for a Mex-
ico-based recruitment com-
pany, and believes, despite
all evidence to the contrary,
that the West Palm Gar-
ments and Textiles Compa-
ny really exists.

“Do you think I’m a fool?
When the Bahamas came I
believed fully in the project.
And I can tell you, up to
now - maybe I’m not going
to say fully - I believe still.
That is why I am continuing
my research into the exis-
tence of the company,” he
said.

Police have now frozen
Turmell’s account. A list of
those owed money is expect-
ed to be published next
week before the repayments
begin.

_ persons who are involved in illegal activity are

able to contact each other to say this is what is in

the market...(and) can pretty much ask for a
weapon of choice and have it available to them,”
Officer Hanna said. He stressed that the unit will
be using “every energy” to eradicate that sector.

Despite these new initiatives, authorities main-

tain that the success of the Firearms Tracing and
Investigation Unit depends on support and infor-
mation from the Bahamian public.

Aid groups appeal
for urgent flood
Pelief across Airica,
seeking millions

@ AMURIA DISTRICT,
Uganda

AID AGENCIES were
appealing for millions of dol-
lars Friday to help more than 1
million Africans affected by
deadly floods that have swept
across the continent, according
to Associated Press.

The United States planned
to send $100,000 for Uganda —
one of the hardest hit countries
— and the European Commis-
sion and the Netherlands each
announced more than $15 mil-
lion in aid for flood victims
across 17 countries. The floods
have killed at least 200 people
and displaced hundreds of thou-
sands since the summer in cen-
tral and eastern Africa.

“If we don’t get food people
will die in this place,” Francis
Aruo, 28, told The Associated
Press in eastern Uganda, one
of the hardest-hit regions of

THE TRIBUNE

Bahamians immerse themselves in

culture, hospitality of South America

Africa. “All our crops are rot- }

ten.”

50 people have died. Theo-
phane Nikyema, U.N. Human-
itarian coordinator for Ugan-
da, said the money will help
address the “devastation left
behind by the rising tide of
water.”

The European Commission
is planning to send $15.45 mil-
lion in humanitarian aid to help
flood victims, said Louis Michel,
the European Commissioner
for Development and Humani-
tarian Aid. The United States
was sending $100,000 for Ugan-
da, said Steven Browning, the
country’s U.S. ambassador.

In Uganda’s Amuria District,
which was put under a state of
emergency this week, more
than 500 people were taking
shelter in a seven-room school-
house, which was meant to
open for a new term last week.

“Tt’s a struggle for accommo-
dations,” said Gilbert Omeke,
the school’s head teacher.
“Some people are fighting for
space. I have designated one
classroom for expectant moth-
ers and the elderly but so many
more don’t find space.”

A GROUP of Bahamians
took the occasion of a
friend’s birthday to immerse

‘themselves in the culture and

hospitality of South America.

They travelled to the city
of Guayaquil, Equador to
join the family and friends
of Lucetty Palomino-Smith
for her birthday celebration.

Mrs Palomino-Smith, a
banker and native Ecuado-
rian, has lived in the
Bahamas for the past 20
years and has been working
for the past 18 in the off-

‘shore banking industry.

Guayaquil, which is the
largest and the most popu-
lous city in Ecuador, is the
home of the nation's main
port. The city is also the cen-
tre of Ecuador's fishing and
manufacturing industries.

The party, which was held
at the Bankers' Club, was

‘described as a wonderful cel-

ebration by all who attended
and the Bahamian visitors
said they were warmly
received by the family of Mrs
Palomino-Smith.

Her son Carlos, speaking
for himself and his brother
Stephen, gave a.toast to his
mother.

While cocktails were
served, a trio consisting of a
guitarist, a harpist (the well
known Ernesto Guerra) and
a bassist, serenaded the guest
with Latin American classics.

During dinner, cultural
presentations representing
different areas of Ecuador
were enjoyed by the guests.

Later in the evening, the
Latin music — along with a
touch of Bahamian music —
had the partygoers on the
dance floor.

Blind single
mother’s home
dream set to
become reality

@ By DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport Reporter
dmaycock@tribunemedia.net

FREEPORT - The dream of
home ownership will soon
become a reality for a blind, sin-
gle mother of five who has been
homeless for the past two years
on Grand Bahama.

Through the efforts of a con-
cerned group of persons, land has
been donated and funds have
been raised to build a home for
Margaret Russell, who was tem-
porarily relocated from her small
wooden shack in Eight Mile
Rock.

Ms Russell lost her sight sud-
denly one day. No medical reason
for her blindness has been deter-
mined.

Without any steady means of
support, she depended on the
kindness of others and the small

Stipend provided her by Social

Services.

Freeport residents June Hen-
derson, Andre Birbal, Rev Scott
Kirkland of the Lucaya Presby-
terian Church, Jill Cooper of the
Church of Ascension, Ms Rus-
sell, and building contractor
Michael Edwards visited the
cleared lot in the Sunrise Subdi-
vision on Thursday.

Mr Edwards, owner of Pinna-
cle Investment Construction
Company Ltd, plans to build a

' two-bedroom, one bathroom

home with an estimated value of
$70,000 including the land.

“It is my sincere hope that
within seven months, if all goes
well, Ms Russell would realise her
dream of living in a very spacious
and comfortable home,” he said.

“T would like to take this
opportunity to appeal to corpo-
rate Grand Bahama. I know that
we are experiencing some seri-
ous and difficult economic times,
but we are sending out an appeal

REV SCOTT Kifvand of the tia Presbyterian Church, building contrac-

Jill Cooper of the Church of Ascension, are seen with the plans for a new
home that will be built for Ms Russell at the Sunrise Subdivision.

to those who may be able to
assist.”

Mr Edwards said that he was
happy to be able to assist Ms Rus-
sell when approached by Ms Hen-
derson and her church group.

“It’s been two years, but this
day is long coming and we are
very happy to'see the ground
cleared,” said Ms Henderson.

“I wish there were more people
like Mr Edwards. He has been

' very supportive of us over the

past two years and has generous-
ly donated the land, time, mate-
rials and labour for this project.”

Ms Henderson and Mr Birbal,
who spearheaded the campaign,
initially learned of Ms Russell’s
plight while visiting the EMR

- area to distribute food to the

needy as part of their church out-
reach programme.

Because Ms Russell confined
to living in a small wooden shack
in an unsuitable environment, Ms
Henderson and Mr Birbal were
determined to assist her in get-
ting a proper home and took her
plight to the media.

After the story aired on ZNS,

‘Ms Henderson said that Mr

Edwards and other persons came
forward to assist.

‘They opened a bank account
at FirstCaribbean Bank and have
held a few fundraisers,

Mr Edwards said through the
assistance of the Grand Bahama
Port Authority, the land was
donated free of charge to Ms
Russell.

He urged other corporate citi- =
zens to assist by making financial _

contributions to the account set
up at FirstCaribbean Bank.

“T am extremely happy that I
am able to assist..,those less for-
tunate people in our community.
I might say that my target of sev-
en months is somewhat ambitious
when you have to be soliciting
funds, but we will continue to pur-
sue it until it is concluded,” he
said.

Ms Russell said she is very
grateful to everyone who came
forward to assist her.

“I am overwhelmed and give
God thanks for this outpouring
of generosity. I am very grateful
to June and Mr Birbal and every-
one for extending a helping hand
to me,” she said.

of Ed and Dawne Bethel —

N Friday, September 7th, 2007, in the

Gardens of Mountbatten House,
West Hill Street, in a romantic setting, Ed and

years of marriage bliss.

In front of 100 invited family and friends,
the Bethels, in a “Recommitment of Love”
ceremony, renewed their wedding vows. The
ceremony was presided over by Cannon War-
ren Rolle, Rector of St. Mary the Virgin Angli-
can Church.

sion.

ALL teachers are back to
work at RM Bailey School
following a tense stand-off
over increased security, which
led the ministry to threaten
termination if they did not
return to work.

Principal Julian Anderson
confirmed that the remain-
ing 18 teachers went back to
their classrooms yesterday
after a week-long sit-out.

The protest began after an
altercation between a male

biology teacher and two male .

students, leading teachers to
demand more security on the
campus, including a call for
the return of police by some.

The initial sit-out included
a large number of teachers,







with the majority of this

group — some 70 teachers —-

returning to the classroom
last Thursday.

Mr Anderson told The Tri-
bune that four additional
security officers have been
sent to the school, but he
emphasised that, despite
national attention on his
school, R M Bailey is not a
violent institution.

“We here at R.M Bailey
are in pursuit of excellence,
which is our theme for this
school year. The matter has
been resolved and we have
put that behind us. And we

2]; 000 scam victims from Madagascar were
set to travel to Bahamas for non-existent work

ALMOST 30,000 people from Mada-.

gascar were set to travel to the Bahamas,

this month in the hopes of finding a better
life before they discovered that they had
become the victims of an elaborate scam.

The BBC yesterday reported that at the
beginning of August a Mauritian busi-
nessman, Steve Turmell, arrived in Mada-
gascar claiming he was recruiting new
employees for a company called West
Palm Garments and Textiles. He also
claimed that this company was based in
the Bahamas.

According to the Madagascar govern-
ment, some 27,000 Malagasy — the ethnic

group which forms the majority of the
island nation’s population — applied for
jobs at the fictional company in an attempt
to escape the poverty in Madagascar and
start a new life in the Bahamas.

Of the applicants, the BBC said, some
3,987 people paid as much as $100 into

‘Turmell’s bank account for vaccinations,

passport fees and other formalities.

In a country where the average wage is
less than a dollar a day, $100 constitutes a
considerable sum and many Malagasy sold
their properties to come up with the mon-
ey.

Turmell told the applicants that they

would be travelling to the Bahamas by
mid-September of this year.

Authorities of the small Indian Ocean
nation became suspicious after thousands
of people suddenly applied for passports at
the same time.

Laureat Rasolofoniainarison, secretary
general of Madagascar's Ministry of
Works, told the BBC that, after checking
with their embassy in Washington, DC,
and with.help from the Bahamian govern-
ment they found there was no company
called West Palm Garments and Textiles

THE TRIBUNE



Couple to push for court sys
overhaul with online

A COUPLE whose long fight
for justice is heading for the
Privy Council are planning an
online petition to push for a
complete overhaul of the
Bahamas court system.

Greg and Tanya Cash say
there is a groundswell of opin-

ion in the country calling for a_

major review of every aspect of
the judicial process - including
the way judges are appointed.

“This can’t go on,” Mrs Cash

told The Tribune yesterday.
“We are raising this petition as
part of our Privy Council pre-
sentation, so we urge every per-
son with a grievance against the

courts, or who simply support |

our cause, to lend their weight
to this campaign.”
_ Mrs Cash said it was impor-
tant for every Bahamian and
foreigner living in the country -
and for the future of the econo-
‘my, especially with regard to
inward investment - that the jus-
tice system should work prop-
erly.

At the moment, she added,
no-one had any faith in the sys-

_ tem, as indicated by response

cod

to a Tribune story earlier this
week in which Mr and Mrs
Cash outlined their latest diffi-
culties with the courts.

“We have had tremendous.

support from ordinary Bahami-

ans who have also been denied

their rights before the courts,”
she said.

“It is clear that very many
people are unhappy with what is
happening here. There is no jus-

tice in this country.”





Greg and Tanya Cash

Meanwhile, Mr and Mrs Cash
are hoping to meet Attorney
General Claire Hepburn to out-
line their concerns.

They claim that court officials
are trying to block their Privy
Council action by refusing to
notarise affidavits essential for
the hearing.

petition to take to parliament,
but also to support our case

of our key points will be the

feel this needs to be looked at

very closely.”

Mr and Mrs Cash have been

lowing Mr Cash’s dismissal as

met further obstacles that they
are determined to seek a ruling
from the London-based Privy
Council.

“Because we can’t get justice
in our own country, we are hav-
ing to seek it in a foreign land,”
said Mrs Cash.

Earlier this year, Mr Cash’s
“unfair dismissal” claim against
the Baptists led to a $26,000
Supreme Court judgment in his
favour, but he has dismissed
this as a “derisory” sum and has
lodged an appeal.

It is because their appeal has

Proposed legislation
has stiff penalties for
dog and cock-fighting ©

DOG-FIGHTING and cock-fighting will-carry heavy penal...
ties - possibly jail terms - under proposed legislation vee ani-—
‘mal activists hope will soon be passed into law.”

Both activities are seen by animal lovers as “polluting” the
Bahamian culture, having been brought in from outside the
country.

Yesterday, well-known Nassau vet Dr Peter Bizzell urged
the government to push the Animal Protection and Control Bill
through parliament to bring the Bahamas up to international
standards on animal welfare.

He said several experts had spent a long time - including
weekend work - to prepare a 44-page propose bill » bring ani-
mal laws up to date.

This, he said, had been completed in the summer of 2005 by
an ad hoc committee of animal specialists. “We were told by
ministers in the old government that it would become law by
Christmas of that year,” he said.

Now it was time for the legislation to be passed to bring the
Bahamas up to international standards, he said.

“Animal lovers and haters want it done for different rea-
sons, so it’s a win-win situation,” he told The Tribune.

The bill addresses every aspect of animal ownership and
treatment and outlaws loose dogs on the street.

Dr Bizzell said: “It also imposes stiff penalties on those tak-
ing part in cock- -fighting or dog-fighting.

“Cock-fighting is part of Haitian culture and dog-fighting is
part of the culture in the southern United States.

“However, Bahamians are friendly and affable people. We
can’t let our culture get polluted by alien cultural elements.”

His comments came as five men in Britain faced jail for
organising what was described as “one of the worst dog fights
ever” between two pitbulls. Five more men face big fines.

One of the dogs involved died of its wounds, the other had to
be put down, after a fight lasting more than two hours.

Dr Bizzell said: “Dog fighting goes right to the heart of the
animal cruelty problem. When people conspire to orchestrate
acts of cruelty, it is catering to the most ugly side of humanity.”

Cock-fighting has been going on in Haitian communities in the
Bahamas for some time while dog-fighting is widely suspected
in some Family Island areas. In fact, an organised cock-fighting
ring es broken up in Spanish Wells a year ago. Several men
weré arrested.

Vicious dogs are seen by some young men as symbolic of
their own toughness. Pitbulls have been imported, not only for
fighting but as fashion statements.

Meanwhile, stray dog numbers in Nassau are down, accord-
ing to Dr Bizzell, mainly because of a successful neutering pro-
gramme anda virulent distemper outbreak.

The Proud Paws campaign had, he said, neutered 5, 000 ani-
mals in the last five years.

Fidel Castro
looks healthier in
- first official video
in more than
three months

HB HAVANA

FIDEL CASTRO looked
alert and healthier in a
video taped Friday, the first
images released of the ail-
ing 81-year-old leader in
more than three months,
according to Associated
Press.

In the images aired unex-
pectedly on state television
Friday evening, Castro
wore a red, blue and white
jumpsuit with “F. Castro”
in small block letters. The
Cuban leader spoke slowly
and softly and didn’t always
look the interviewer in the
eye, but appeared to be
thinking clearly.

Officials broke into regu-
larly scheduled program-
ming only minutes earlier
to announce that an hour-
long “conversation” with
Castro would be shown.

Castro mentioned the

_ price of oil and the value of
the Euro against the dollar,
evidence that the video was
recorded Friday, as Cuban

. Officials said. At times, it



was hard to follow his train
of thought as he spoke
about a wandering essay he
published in state media
Wednesday.

At first, Castro often
trailed off mid-sentence,
and needed some prompt-
ing. But he appeared to get
stronger and more comfort-
able as time passed. His
eyes and facial expression
were clear.

Castro has not been since
in public since July 31, ;
2006, when he announced
that emergency intestinal
surgery was forcing him to
step down in favor-of a pro-
visional government head-
ed by his younger brother
Raul.

For months, official pho-
tographs and videos
showed Castro’s recovery,
but no new images had sur-
faced since he appeared i in

an interview on: Cuban tele- 38

vision June 5. ev

Vice President Carlos
Lage told reporters earlier
Friday that the essays Cas-
tro has signed every few
days since late March are
evidence that his health is
\strong.

“Fidel continues to recu-
perate. It’s a productive
recuperation as we can see
in the press,” said Lage,
apparently referring to the
publication in state news-
papers of Castro’s “Reflec-
tions of the Commander in
Chief.”

Foreign Minister Felipe
Perez Roque added that
“Fidel is recovering with
discipline and IJ think that
he’s having a productive
work period — reading,
studying, writing and keep-
ing up with and participat-
ing in the country’s princi-
pal decisions.”

As he recovers in an
undisclosed location, Cas-
tro’s condition and exact
ailment are state secrets,
though he wrote in one of
his essays that he had
undergone multiple surg-
eries, at least one of which
went poorly.

Castro also suggested he
can’t be bothered to trim
his beard or comb his hair
— possibly explaining why
so few official images have
been released.

Mitchell: FNM ‘mistaken’ on decision
not to sign agreement with Europe

OPPOSITION spokesman
on foreign affairs Fred
Mitchell says the FNM gov-
ernment is “mistaken” over its
decision not to sign an Eco-
nomic Partnership Agreement
with Europe.

The agreement would have
benefited — among others — the
Bacardi Company, which. has
announced that it is leaving
the Bahamas to move to Puer-
to Rico “...even though they
did not cite the fact of no EPA
as a factor”, said Mr Mitchell.

“Our own government, I
think mistakenly, has
announced that they will not
sign the agreement in Decem-
ber. I think that this removes
the pressure on our country to
modernise itself,” he said.

The former foreign minister
was speaking in Miami at
‘AfrICANDO 2007 - African
cultures and development’; a
conference of the Washington
DC based Foundation for
Democracy in Africa. ©

Mr Mitchell called upon the
delegates to embrace the val-
ues of self-reliance and raised
the possibilities for co-opera-
tion in tourism across the dias-

ora.

“Self reliance . ... must infect
the governance issues that
have to be addressed . . . It
infect the way we
approach our international
treaties and the obligations
that arise from them... . (and)



“Our own government, I
think mistakenly, has
announced that they will
not sign the agreement in
December. I think that this
removes the pressure on our
country to modernise itself.”



Opposition spokesman on
foreign affairs Fred Mitchell

will also remove the beggar
mentality that is so often pre-
sent in international fora...
and the view that Africa is just
a big basket case,” Mr
Mitchell said.

“Africans must marshal
their own resources”, said the
former foreign minister, “one
policy ought to be the part-
nering with Caribbean coun-
tries and countries in Africa
on tourism matters.

“The possibilities for
tourism development are end-
less and the Caribbean has the
expertise and the know-how
to help Africa develop this
tourist potential.

“Clearly these alternatives

of... overseas development .

assistance, trade nof aid and
its adjunct foreign direct
investment ... continue to be
in the mix of policy initiatives
but coming from out of the
mist is the old, tried and true
religion of self determination .
.. the marshalling of African
resources to achieve the goals
for Africa and its diaspora.”
Mr Mitchell accepted the

invitation as a luncheon -

keynote speaker to the 10th
Annual AfrliC ANDO Sympo-
sium while in opposition, he
said, as part of a process “to
work on ideas for the future,
to devélop them and to nur-
ture them.”

FREEPORT - Police say a
group of more than 20 Haitian
immigrants claim they paid
$77,000 to a Bahamian boat
captain and a Haitian man
who dropped them off on
Bimini — instead of taking
them.to Miami.

This is the latest of several
groups of suspected illegal
immigrants apprehended with-
in the past few weeks in both
north and south Bimini.

Chief Supt Basil Rahming
said that three different
groups of Haitian immigrants
were discovered and arrested
on the small island this week.

He reported that police and
immigration officers on duty
at the South Bimini Interna-
tional Airport received infor-
mation around 3.30pm on
Tuesday that a number of per-
sons had been spotted in the
bushes at the eastern end of
the runway.

When officers went to inves-
tigate, they reportedly discov-
ered eight Haitians — seven
women. and one man.

They were taken in custody
and moved to the Alice Town
Police Station on north Bimi-
ni.
The second group was
apprehended around 3.25am
on Wednesday after being dis-

Pakistan’s crisis, and ours

PAKISTAN is suffering through many crises
at once. Front and centre is a political power
struggle that illustrates the continuing tension in
Pakistan between democratic structures and a
vulnerability to military rule. Simultaneously,
the state is confronting violence from Islamist
extremists that extends into Islamabad, the cap-
ital; clashes in the Pushtun tribal areas between
the military and local forces hosting the Afghan
Taliban and Al Qaeda; a nationalist rebellion in
Baluchistan; the lingering conflict with India

over Kashmir; and simmering popular resent-:
ment at Musharraf’s alliance with the United
States.

Because Pakistan has become an indispens-
able partner in the fight against jihadist terror-
ism and because it is a nuclear power, Wash-
ington cannot be indifferent to the outcome of

Pakistan’s political and security crises. But the .

Bush administration must be careful to distin-
guish immediate concerns about Musharraf’s
fate from America’s long-term interest ina sta-
ble democratic Pakistan.

It is true, as Musharraf and his backers like to
recall, that the civilian governments of the two
exiled former prime ministers, Benazir Bhutto
and Nawaz Sharif, were stained by corruption.
It is also true that Islamist forces have flourished
under military dictatorships.

Under present conditions, open US support
for Musharraf only inflames popular indignation

against America as a backer of military rule. .

At the same time, it paints him as the pawn of a
superpower that many Pakistanis have come
to regard either as a flighty ally or as hostile to
Muslims. Justified or not, those views must be

- taken into consideration as the administration
’ weighs its policy options for a Pakistan in crisis.

Quietly, Washington ought to welcome what
‘Musharraf's lawyer told the Pakistani Supreme
Court this week: that the general will relinquish
his post as army chief of staff if he wins a pres-
idential election that is to be conducted before
Oct..15 by the current Parliament and provincial
‘assemblies. This gesture is a belated conces-
sion to Pakistani legal norms, and it will hardly
satisfy critics who say Musharraf is still violating
the Constitution by running for a third term.
‘These critics also complain that he disregarded
a Supreme Court ruling in his treatment of:
Sharif, the. exiled leader of a major political
party. When the former prime minister flew
into Islamabad a week ago, Musharraf deport-
ed him back to Saudi Arabia.

The more Musharraf bows to the democrat-

~ ic. will of the public and to constitutional rules

affirmed by an independent judiciary, the better
for Pakistan and for long-term US interests.

». The United States should place itself on the
' side of democratic legitimacy in Pakistan, not on

the side of a general willing to bend the rules to

stay in power

Bush’s legacy will include the war

LOOK at them run, all the Republican and
Democratic candidates for president.

- They have been at it for many months now,
charging ever harder toward a goal that’s still
more than a year away — debating, unveiling
policy proposals, burnishing their images.
Running for president takes a lot of work and
even more money, and it’s clear that Romney,
Giuliani, Clinton, McCain, Obama, et al., real-
ly want to end up in the Oval Office.

Each of them had better want the presi-
dency, and want it bad, because it has become
increasingly clear since Gen. David Petraeus’
testimony on Capitol Hill that, along with the
keys to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue and Air

Force One, President Bush plans to hand his.

successor the situation in Iraq, more or less as
we have known it for more than four years
now.

The White House has played up a plan to -

bring home about 30,000 troops from Iraq
before next summer, billing this a “return on
success,” even though it appears that troop
rotations and the limits of the U.S. military
would make such a move necessary regardless
of circumstances. ; ; *



Thus will the American presence in Iraq
be drawn down to pre-“surge” levels, which

~ seems to leave us — and Iraq — where We ©
were when the Baker-Hamilton Iraq Study

Group delivered its recommendations last
December and President Bush decided not
to take them.

This week, Sen. Hillary Clinton outlined a
health-care proposal that would cost an esti-
mated $110 billion a year. Other candidates
have made their own financially and politi-
cally ambitious proposals in recent weeks and

‘months, and more are sure to come. Whatev-

er plans the next president may have for
America, though, will have to be tempered
by a budgetary reality that not only includes
huge deficits but also what is now a $2 bil-
lion-a-week outlay for the war in Iraq.

The next president’s options when it comes

‘to dealing with foreign crises are also likely to

be curtailed by the logistical and diplomatic
realities that go along with having more than

_ 130,000 troops and all their equipment tied
. down in Iraq.

The PLP has —

‘deteriorated’

EDITOR, The Tribune.

I NEVER thought that I
would live long enough to say
that the PLP has deteriorat-
ed to the bowels of the gut-

ter. I am a PLP, my mother

and father are PLP, my grand-
mother and grandfather are
all PLP. I hail from South
Andros and grew up in a PLP
community. We followed the
PLP blindly all of my life.
When someone shouted PLP
we automatically responded
“all the way”.

I have had much time of
reflection and I measure the
PLP today by the way the late
Sir Lynden conducted the
affairs of the country and the
party. The PLP, while it has
some faults still operated with
class..Sir Lynden had his way,
but he was a consummate
politician who:knew the game
well. He was never guessing.

It is embarrassing to see
how Perry Christie has
allowed the PLP to sink to the
deepest part of the sewer. He
has allowed the likes of Fred
Mitchell, as far as I know a
socialist, Allyson Maynard
Gibson, a lady who was well
on her way to starting her own
party, BJ Nottage, a PLP
reject who started the destruc-
tion from outside, and Alfred
Gray, who is not taken seri-
ously by any sober-minded
Bahamian, to change the par-
ty to something that we do not
recognise anymore. The gutter
behaviour and style is not
appealing.

Bahamians who do not say
PLP are ostracized. We actu-
ally hate each other beeause of
the way Mr Christie, Fred
Mitchell, Allyson Gibson and
others who are preaching
doom and destruction to all
Bahamians. We who love the
PLP and the Bahamas cannot
stand idly by and watch it
being destroyed.

The recent behaviour of the
PLP members of parliament
and senators are a clear exam-
ple that someone in the party
must be losing their minds.

The serious beating that we
took, regardless of how much
we try to pretend to have won,
cannot change the fact that
more people voted forthe
FNM than in 2002. They
gained a lot of ground and we
as PLPs are doing precious lit-
tle to cover the ground loss.
We certainly cannot progress
pitting people against their
own family. In small settle-
ments everyone is related.

We deceived the straw ven-

dors, the police, prison over-

seers, teachers, civil servants
and even the people we pre-
tended to hire:just before the
election. We knew that we
were not serious about keep-
ing them on, but we played
with their emotions just to win
votes. That cannot be right
and other PLPs who love the

that something is drastically
wrong. oe

The time has come for M
Christie and his crew, ie Fred
Mitchell, Allyson Maynard-
Gibson, Alfred Gray, Shane
Gibson, and Vincent Peet to ~
hurry off the scene so we can
put some genuine people in
positions that would bring the
PLP back to its prominence.
Otherwise we are doomed for-
ever.

Removing roundabouts —
would ease traffic problems

EDITOR, The Tribune.

PLEASE publish this open letter to
Prime Minister the Rt Hon Hubert Ingraham and the Hon Earl
Deveaux, Minister of Works and Transport.

Dear Sirs:

For quite sometime now I’ve been following the traffic situation
throughout Nassau, especially busy periods.

I believe the solution is very simple but we are focusing other-
wise.

These roundabouts are the major factor. If you see them early
in the mornings, or getting off times in the afternoons, it’s easy to
determine. _

Everyone just pile-up, blocking each other. No one can move for
ages, blocking traffic from every direction, east, west, north and ©
south. \

Because of this, just a few minutes without constant flow the
entire areas are blocked. Drivers frustrated, and no one can real-
ly give way anymore bringing traffic to a complete stop.

By removing the roundabouts you will be able to drive almost
freely regardless of the hours just by having properly timed lights
corresponding with each other and caution lights in certain areas.

These roundabouts create many unnecessary accidents, creating
even more traffic congestions, because of frustrations because
that majority of our drivers still never take the correct lane anyway
even where the lanes are marked.

Let’s forget about this beautification foolishness of roundabouts,
because they are never properly kept anyway. They are mostly eye-
sores. We need to focus on relief, less frustration, unnecessary
accidents and all the other things that can be avoided.

Also the traffic from Kerzner International can be limited by let-
ting them use ferry boats to and from Montagu covering the east-
ern area and to Arawak Cay the central and western area. This will
also take a lot of pressure off the bridges that is so necessary and
will save them for a much longer time and may save us from a
major disaster. This is free consultation.

THE neighbourhood com-
munity policing unit of the
South Beach Police Station
aims to be the “pacesetter”
for other districts as it
attempts to restore trust
between the public and the
Royal Bahamas Police Force,
officers say.

Policing Initiative ;

WHY YOU VEX?

@ Compiled By

whyyouvex@tribunemedia.net

plete TV listings, jumbled page layouts and tired
cartoons, except for 'Calvin & Hobbes'. I vex
with front page photos that focus on criminals
and delinquents while any worthwhile stories are
hidden away inside the paper. Photos, if available,
are usually so small the faces are unidentifiable or
have mixed up captions.
Where's the Caribbean and European news?
USA Today and their "news lite" doesn't

appeal to me.
4H e Too much American football, base-
CO - f ball and news; we are not the 51st
i state! My Saturday 75c also gets
less newspaper, as the USA
Today doesn't run on Saturday
but has a Friday weekend issue
instéad. Please! Thank God I
have the internet with access to
as many newspapers and com-
ic sites as I want. I really feel

for those who don't.”

— Gina, San Souci.

“T am tired of reporters interviewing the par-
ents/family members of murdered victims and
asking them: ‘How do you feel at this time?’ How
(do reporters) EXPECT them to feel? Happy
and ready to throw a party? (A local
broadcast reporter) asks some of the
most INSENSITIVE questions
when people are at their lowest.

STOP HIM from interviewing





— Tia, concerned citizen
“An area of land left in

(my neighbourhood) has for

a long time been neglected

by all past governments and
the results have been that the
immediate homeowners have
(taken) the liberty to operate
an illegal auto body repair
shop. . . The one civil servant
who is responsible for the body
work has moved out only tocome
back and pollute the area with the ~
heavy odour of autobody paint that
forces the people next door to close their
home up to avoid the unhealthy chemicals.

I have spoken to the present member of par-
liament and I also made a call to the ministry of
works to try to get the department to stop this
health hazard but no changes so far.

It would be a dream, a long awaited desire of all
the residents of (the) community to have a play
ground for the children,”

— Anthony

“T vex at THE TRIBUNE! Bad editing, lousy
proofreading,'stories lacking basic details, incom-

“Tam wondering how
employers nowadays can have
their employees working nine
hours a day instead of a regular
shift (8 hours ). Here I am now
working 8.30 am to 5.30pm and I real-
ly can't understand why most business
have this as it's new office hours. How can
I be a good parent to my child it I have to wake
up at 5am to get us both ready for work and
school and get off at 5.30pm or when my boss
think he had worked us for our pay! When I
already have spent an hour or more in traffic
how can I be mentally ready to help my child
with homework? Can employers have a heart for
the staff and please have an eight hour work day
or maybe the government needs to address this

problem?”

— Keanna, overworked parent.

_. said,

The unit, which has been
operating for around four
months under the recently
implemented Neighbourhood
Policing Initiative, has

_ received an “excellent” com-

munity response, Inspector
Chester Thomas told ‘The Tri-

bune in an interview at:

the South Beach Police Sta-
tion. i

Since its inception, the pro-
gramme has held eight neigh-
bourhood town meetings as
well as established meetings

_ with pastors in the area, he.

added.

According to Mr Thomas,
a resource officer is dis-
patched regularly to patrol
each school in the district and
liaise with principals to dis-
cuss problems the problems
they are facing and formulate
solutions

While there are no police
officers stationed in schools
in the area, patrols are car-
ried out at the start and end of
each school day, Mr Thomas
said, adding there are approx-

imately 10 schools in the

southeastern district.

“We are customer friendly,
we realise that we can’t do
our job by ourselves,” said Mr
Thomas. “So we go out.and
what. we do is build that
bridge of friendship in the
community so they have con-
fidence in us. . . so they will be
able to share things with us. .

.that they wouldn’t normally

share.”

The Tribune was invited on
an exclusive ride with Woman
Sergeant Phyllis Rahming and
Insp Thomas earlier this the
week, as they patrolled “pop-
ular loitering” areas in the
southeastern district.

The unit has two police
vehicles currently operating
on patrol in the area, with
“problem” areas like Nassau
Village and Summer
Haven being the main
targets, Sergeant Rahming

South Beach station aims to restore
trust between the public and police

While on the mid-afternoon
patrol, officers Rahming and
Thomas made several stops
to speak with residents, most-
ly men, about concerns in the
community as well as to hand
out flyers advertising an
upcoming neighbourhood
town meeting.

“We are now empowering
the people of the community
to take control of their com-

munity so if next week the ©

commissioner calls me and
says ‘you’re transferred to
another area’, it would not
affect the programme because
the people will be in power,”
Insp Thomas explained.

Caniz Nelson, of Walnut —

Street, told The Tribune he
only recently became aware

_ of the existence the neigh-

bourhood policing unit and is
looking forward to what the
initiative will accomplish in
his area.

However, not every mem-
ber.of the areas visited was
optimistic about the neigh-

bourhood community initia-

tive.

James Williams, a former
resident of Summer Haven,
said he was skeptical, arguing
that under the former admin-
istration’s Urban Renewal
Programme, he witnessed
“positive changes.”

“T saw less crime in this area
and the police could really
interact with the community,”
he said of Urban Renewal.

Sergeant Rahming said that
while the South Beach Sta-
tion considers the new unit a

success, it is not intended to -

be a “quick fix” and a lot
more hard work has to be
done in the community.

The unit will also focus on infiltrating under-
ground markets in an effort to crack down on
the sale of black market firearms.

“There is an underworld in this country where

During a general meeting at
union headquarters on Bethel
Avenue yesterday Mrs Poitier-
Turnquest reasserted her con-
trol over the policy and direc-
tion of the union, appearing to
focus directly on Ms Wilson.

Referring to the “two voic-
es” coming from the union, Mrs
Poitier-Turnquest said: “We
have to have one voice. The
spokesman of this union is the

When contacted by The Tri-
bune, Ms Wilson did not want
to comment, but said that “the
one voice” of the union in her
opinion is that of the members.

Union elections are set for
June next year, and sources
indicate that recent differences
in opinion between Ms Wilson
and Mrs Poitier-Turnquest
reflect a wider power struggle

Teachers back to
work at R M Bailey

Many expect Ms Wilson to
challenge the president if she
seeks re-election next year.

Out of the same union meet-

registered in the Bahamas.

As a consequence, police
immediately arrested
Turmell.

After being questioned by
police earlier this week,
Turmell told the local media
that he will pay back all the
money he had taken.

The Malagasy authorities
estimated that the Maurit-
ian was able to amass almost.
$247,000.

However, Turmell is still
claiming that he is also a vic-
tim in this case. He claimed
that he is working for a Mex-
ico-based recruitment com-
pany, and believes, despite
all evidence to the contrary,
that the West Palm Gar-
ments and Textiles Compa-
ny really exists.

“Do you think I’m a fool?
When the Bahamas came I
believed fully in the project.
And I can tell you, up to
now - maybe I’m not going
to say fully - I believe still.
That is why I am continuing
my research into the exis-
tence of the company,” he
said.

Police have now frozen
Turmell’s account. A list of
those owed money is expect-
ed to be published next
week before the repayments
begin.

able to contact each other to say this is what is in

Officer Hanna said. He stressed that the unit will
be using “every energy” to eradicate that sector.

Despite these new initiatives, authorities main-

tain that the success of the Firearms Tracing and
Investigation Unit depends on support and infor-
mation from the Bahamian public.

Aid groups appeal
for urgent flood
Pelief across Airica,
seeking millions

@ AMURIA DISTRICT,
Uganda

AID AGENCIES were
appealing for millions of dol-
lars Friday to help more than 1
million Africans affected by
deadly floods that have swept
across the continent, according
to Associated Press.

The United States planned
to send $100,000 for Uganda —
one of the hardest hit countries
— and the European Commis-
sion and the Netherlands each
announced more than $15 mil-
lion in aid for flood victims
across 17 countries. The floods
have killed at least 200 people
and displaced hundreds of thou-
sands since the summer in cen-
tral and eastern Africa.

“If we don’t get food people
will die in this place,” Francis
Aruo, 28, told The Associated
Press in eastern Uganda, one
of the hardest-hit regions of

50 people have died. Theo-
phane Nikyema, U.N. Human-
itarian coordinator for Ugan-
da, said the money will help
address the “devastation left
behind by the rising tide of
water.”

The European Commission
is planning to send $15.45 mil-
lion in humanitarian aid to help
flood victims, said Louis Michel,
the European Commissioner
for Development and Humani-
tarian Aid. The United States
was sending $100,000 for Ugan-
da, said Steven Browning, the
country’s U.S. ambassador.

In Uganda’s Amuria District,
which was put under a state of
emergency this week, more
than 500 people were taking
shelter in a seven-room school-
house, which was meant to
open for a new term last week.

“Tt’s a struggle for accommo-
dations,” said Gilbert Omeke,
the school’s head teacher.
“Some people are fighting for
space. I have designated one
classroom for expectant moth-
ers and the elderly but so many
more don’t find space.”

A GROUP of Bahamians
took the occasion of a
friend’s birthday to immerse

‘themselves in the culture and

hospitality of South America.

They travelled to the city
of Guayaquil, Equador to
join the family and friends
of Lucetty Palomino-Smith
for her birthday celebration.

Mrs Palomino-Smith, a
banker and native Ecuado-
rian, has lived in the
Bahamas for the past 20
years and has been working
for the past 18 in the off-

‘shore banking industry.

Guayaquil, which is the
largest and the most popu-
lous city in Ecuador, is the
home of the nation's main
port. The city is also the cen-
tre of Ecuador's fishing and
manufacturing industries.

The party, which was held
at the Bankers' Club, was

‘described as a wonderful cel-

ebration by all who attended
and the Bahamian visitors
said they were warmly
received by the family of Mrs
Palomino-Smith.

Her son Carlos, speaking
for himself and his brother
Stephen, gave a.toast to his
mother.

While cocktails were
served, a trio consisting of a
guitarist, a harpist (the well
known Ernesto Guerra) and
a bassist, serenaded the guest
with Latin American classics.

During dinner, cultural
presentations representing
different areas of Ecuador
were enjoyed by the guests.

Later in the evening, the
Latin music — along with a
touch of Bahamian music —
had the partygoers on the
dance floor.

Blind single
mother’s home
dream set to
become reality

@ By DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport Reporter
dmaycock@tribunemedia.net

FREEPORT - The dream of
home ownership will soon
become a reality for a blind, sin-
gle mother of five who has been
homeless for the past two years
on Grand Bahama.

Through the efforts of a con-
cerned group of persons, land has
been donated and funds have
been raised to build a home for
Margaret Russell, who was tem-
porarily relocated from her small
wooden shack in Eight Mile
Rock.

Ms Russell lost her sight sud-
denly one day. No medical reason
for her blindness has been deter-
mined.

Without any steady means of
support, she depended on the
kindness of others and the small

Stipend provided her by Social

Services.

Freeport residents June Hen-
derson, Andre Birbal, Rev Scott
Kirkland of the Lucaya Presby-
terian Church, Jill Cooper of the
Church of Ascension, Ms Rus-
sell, and building contractor
Michael Edwards visited the
cleared lot in the Sunrise Subdi-
vision on Thursday.

Mr Edwards, owner of Pinna-
cle Investment Construction
Company Ltd, plans to build a

' two-bedroom, one bathroom

home with an estimated value of
$70,000 including the land.

“It is my sincere hope that
within seven months, if all goes
well, Ms Russell would realise her
dream of living in a very spacious
and comfortable home,” he said.

“T would like to take this
opportunity to appeal to corpo-
rate Grand Bahama. I know that
we are experiencing some seri-
ous and difficult economic times,
but we are sending out an appeal

REV SCOTT Kifvand of the tia Presbyterian Church, building contrac-
tor Michael Edwards, Margaret Russell, June Henderson, Andre Birbal, and
Jill Cooper of the Church of Ascension, are seen with the plans for a new
home that will be built for Ms Russell at the Sunrise Subdivision.

to those who may be able to
assist.”

Mr Edwards said that he was
happy to be able to assist Ms Rus-
sell when approached by Ms Hen-
derson and her church group.

“It’s been two years, but this
day is long coming and we are
very happy to'see the ground
cleared,” said Ms Henderson.

“I wish there were more people
like Mr Edwards. He has been

' very supportive of us over the

past two years and has generous-
ly donated the land, time, mate-
rials and labour for this project.”

Ms Henderson and Mr Birbal,
who spearheaded the campaign,
initially learned of Ms Russell’s
plight while visiting the EMR

- area to distribute food to the

needy as part of their church out-
reach programme.

Because Ms Russell confined
to living in a small wooden shack
in an unsuitable environment, Ms
Henderson and Mr Birbal were
determined to assist her in get-
ting a proper home and took her
plight to the media.

After the story aired on ZNS,

‘Ms Henderson said that Mr

Edwards and other persons came
forward to assist.

‘They opened a bank account
at FirstCaribbean Bank and have
held a few fundraisers,

Mr Edwards said through the
assistance of the Grand Bahama
Port Authority, the land was
donated free of charge to Ms
Russell.

He urged other corporate citi- =
zens to assist by making financial _

contributions to the account set
up at FirstCaribbean Bank.

“T am extremely happy that I
am able to assist..,those less for-
tunate people in our community.
I might say that my target of sev-
en months is somewhat ambitious
when you have to be soliciting
funds, but we will continue to pur-
sue it until it is concluded,” he
said.

Ms Russell said she is very
grateful to everyone who came
forward to assist her.

“I am overwhelmed and give
God thanks for this outpouring
of generosity. I am very grateful
to June and Mr Birbal and every-
one for extending a helping hand
to me,” she said.
