election were below minimum
wage for government staff

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

THE PRIME Minister yes-
terday tabled in the House of

' Assembly a list of temporary

contracts issued by the former
PLP government, which reveals
that more than 60 persons were
hired before the election below
the minimum wage for govern-
ment workers, on short term
contracts.

Mr Ingraham tabled the doc-
ument of Family Island con-
tracts in response to a claim by
MICAL MP Alfred Gray that

the FNM government vic-

timised Nadine Ingraham, caus-
ing her termination from a jan-
itorial post at the All Age
School in Inagua.

This information set off a
heated exchange between the
Prime Minister and Mr Gray in
which Mr Ingraham questioned

MP; and Mr Gray rigorously
defended his actions as the min-
ister of local government.

“J inform the honourable
members that Mrs Ingraham’s
employment was not terminat-

prime minister said. “Rather,
the short term employment
authorised by the Christie
administration for Mrs. Ingra-
ham came to an end on 30 June,
2007.”

_“T am advised that Mrs Ingra-
ham left her job site voluntarily
and has not returned,” Mr
Ingraham added.

Mr Ingraham revealed that:

Ministry yet to receive ‘official sanz
application for review of ‘Ninety’ case —_ on Interpol’s

@ By TANEKA THOMPSON
Tribune Staff Reporter
tthompson@tribunemedia.net

ALTHOUGH the media has
received a written request from
alleged “drug kingpin” Samuel
‘90’ Knowles appealing to the

government for a review of his’

extradition case, the Ministry of
Foreign Affairs has yet to
receive an “official” application
for review, officials said yester-
day. :

As reported this week, the

"alleged drug trafficker forward-

ed a letter to the media earlier

in the week, detailing what he |

called a violation of his consti-
tutional rights every day he is
allowed to remain in a US
prison. Knowles also claimed
the former administration was
duped by US authorities during
his extradition and called for a
review of his, case by the gov-
ernment.

Yesterday Deputy Prime.

Minister and Minister of For-
eign Affairs Brent Symonette

weighed in on the much debat- |

ed issue of the extradition of
Knowles to the United States







SMe Oe
to face specific drug charges
stemming from an indictment

‘in 2000.

Mr Symonette told The Tri-

bune during an interview that :
while he has seen a copy of the :
letter written-by Knowles, his ;
office has not réceived a formal :

application on the matter.

ter to be dealt with in the media :

THERE are four Bahami-

revealed.

The Bahamian nationals
join over four dozen other
Caribbean nationals who fea-

Bahamas to come third overall

On the international police

Some constituents on
Maynard-Gibson’s
election court petition
seeking legal advice

@ By PAUL
TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter
pturnquest@tribunemedia-net

AT LEAST 10 constituents
whose names have appeared
on the election court petition
filed by PLP Senator Allyson
Maynard-Gibson are now
seeking legal advice about
what recourse they might
have against Mrs Maynard-
Gibson, FNM chairman John-
ley Ferguson confirmed yes-
terday. — >

Mr Ferguson said that these
residents, with whom he has
personally spoken, are deeply

'» offended that Mrs Maynard-

Gibson has published their
names. Mr Ferguson said that
in doing so, the PLP chal-
lenger is not only possibly
calling into. question these
persons’ nationality, but it
might be interpreted as an
assault on their individual
character.

“They are seeking legal
advice as to what they can in
relation to what she has

:_.done,” Mr Ferguson said.

“J have spoken to more
than 10 persons whose names
have appeared on that list,
who are very concerned that
their character is being tam-

i pered with, so to speak. And

they are concerned that she
went ahead and put their
names there, and they are
seeking some legal advice as
to what they can do to have
her retract them.

“Because they live in
Kennedy Subdivision, in

P Pinewood, they are resident

there, and they have lived
there for many, many years.
So for her to throw their
name about there like that,
they are very, very con-
cerned,” he said.

Activist calls for
ban on sodomy

»» SODOMY should be made
‘illegal in the Bahamas according
; to Clever Duncombe.
t . Mr Duncome touched on this
,.and many other issues when he
‘appeared on the GEMs radio
, show “The Way Forward” yes:
“ terday.
: He called for more legal pro-
“tection for fathers and claimed
‘ that Bahamian mothers have a
‘disproportionate number of
“rights with regard to children
‘born out of wedlock.
‘Mr Duncombe, the leader of
“the activist group Bahamian
‘Fathers for Children Every-
«where, was accompanied by fel-
‘low activist Diamond Harrison.
» In recent weeks, Mr Dun-
-combe has argued for the gov-
‘ernment to hold a referendum
"to determine whether the gay
‘lifestyle should be made illegal.
‘. Yesterday, he said the
‘Bahamian public should specif-
ically decide if sodomy in a pri-
‘vate setting is to remain a legal
vact.
\ He argued that if sodomy and
",subsequently the homosexual
“lifestyle were made illegal, there
«would be no need for the Chris-
“tian Council to organise protests
‘against movies like Brokeback



COREA cH AOU NTO ONT Ole



Mountain, gay cruises, or calls
for a gay television channel.

“I’m here to outlaw it ,.. any
policy that I find to be promot-
ing this (gay) agenda, I will kill
it before it grow,” Mr Dun-
combe said, stressing that he is a
proponent of changing the situ-
ation through legislation, not
violence.

The Sexual Offences Act,
which made sodomy between
two men illegal, was repealed
in 1991, Mr Duncombe and his
organisation are seeking to have
that decision reversed.

Mr Duncombe claimed that
the 1991 change was made by

THE TRIBUNE

“stealth” as Bahamians were
not allowed to weigh in before
the law was changed. He assert-
ed that if asked, the majority of
Bahamians would support the
re-imposition of the Act. it

“There were many persons
before Cleaver Duncombe. .\,
who were addressing the issue’,
.. but the distinct difference

between Cleaver Duncombe

and.the rest of them, is that they
were gay bashing. I run a dif-
ferent campaign, I am not bash-
ing on lesbians or gays, what 'I
am addressing here . . . is the
legislation,” Mr Duncombe salg
yesterday.

He added that his organisa-
tion had made an express
request to the Christian Council
for their support in addressing
the sodomy law, but has not
received any response. i

Mr Harrison stated that a
return to “righteousness” would
help the nation rid itself of the
social ills, which come about as
the country becomes more
exposed to alternative lifestyles
through television and the
media. i

“Tf its only me and Mr Dunit
combe prepared to fight this
(war) we will do it,” he said. ©

‘Parents urged to check children’s sight

. By ALISON LOWE
’ Tribune Staff Reporter
alowe@tribunemedia.net

». IN recognition of World Sight

Day today, the Bahamas
- Alliance for the Blind and Visu-

» ally Impaired has urged parents
to realise that their children
“might, have sight problems and
‘to take appropriate action,

'. According to Desmond
“Brown, president of the BABVI,

_ “sometimes we fail to realise

“recognise the fact that children
are having sight problems ~ they

‘go to school and they are not

Jearning properly (and) we do
not attribute that to the fact that
ythey aren’t seeing properly.”

. He said this can cause the

children to endure unnecessary
hardship.

Mr Brown said that World
Sight Day should be a day to
recognise the “worldwide prob-
lem of avoidable blindness” in
particular, as well as the issues
and problems that exist for
blind and visually impaired peo-
ple in general.

The president said that while
millions of people suffer from

blindness “they wouldn’t have

to go blind if the proper pre-
cautions and medication were
given.”

In light of this year’s theme,

“Blindness and childhood”, Mr

Brown appealed to parents,
guardians and.teachers “to look...

and to.realise. and recognise

15” LCD

when their children might be
experiencing sight problems and
to take appropriate action by
having your child get help.” —

Mr Brown said that in the
Bahamian context, something
that must also be addressed is
the fact that some families will
“hide away” their blind children
and relatives,

“To parents whose children
might be blind or have an
impairment, look upon those
children as human beings,” he
said. “Take them out, let them
be exposed to the world and
their surroundings.

“They are persons, who with

the right training and opportu;...;
nities, can:achieve their - goaly

in life,” he said.

Petitions being
raised for release
of prisoner featured
in The Tribune

TWO petitions are being
raised to call for the release.
of Trent Albury, the 33-year-
old Abaconian whose plight
in Fox Hill Prison was high-
lighted in Monday’s Tribune.

Supporters in Abaco and
Grand Bahama will urge the
government to halt extradi-
tion proceedings against Mr
Albury and free him from jail
immediately,

Mr Albury is said by
friends and family to be on

- the brink of suicide after

being arrested and jailed i1
months ago pending extradi-
tion proceedings by the US
government.

US authorities want Mr
Albury to be returned to
Florida, where he was being
held under house arrest for
alleged manslaughter follow-
ing a road accident in which a
woman died.

His lawyer, Murrio Ducille,
has argued in court that the
case is not extraditable and
that his client deserves bail.

Family friend Jeanne
Kemp told The Tribune last
night chat Abaco and Grand
Bahama supporters were rais-
ing petitions calling on the

. government to step in.

oy

“e plan to demonstrate

_ outside parliament if this
' matter is not-resolved,”

said
*.'5‘Kemp: who visits Mr
Albury weekly with hot food.

“Feelings are Tunning high at
thetmoment.”

She said the INSIGHT arti- i

cle was “overwhelming” and

TV PERSONALITY Rita
Cosby last night lashed out at
local activist Lincoln Bain, claim-
ing he was now trying to change
his views on the Anna Nicole
Smith affair, even though they
had already been recorded on
his own website.

Ms Cosby said Mr Bain, in
referring to her new bddk about
Anna Nicole, had claimed on his
website to “know already” what
she was alleging about
Howard K Stern and Larry Birk-

head in the book, Blonde Ambi-. .

tion.

And he had cited two Haitian
maids who worked for Anna
Nicole as having confirmed the
claims made in her book, she said.

“Tt’s all there on his Mr Con-
troversy website,” said Ms Cosby.
“Now he’s trying to say some-
thing different.”

An angry Ms Cosby’s com-
ments came after a weekend bust-
up with Mr Bain in which she
claimed she was “set up” and
asked for money by the two
Haitians.

Mr Bain, in turn, is now threat-
ening to place video footage on
his website showing the full extent
of what he calls a “sting” opera-
tion aimed at catching Ms Cosby
offering deals to the maids.

Last night, Ms Cosby told The
Tribune that she was “very dis-
appointed” at what happened in
Nassau, adding: “I had come to
the Bahamas looking for the
truth.”

Her best-selling book, which
purports:to tell the truth about
Stern’s friendship with Birkhead,
is now the subject of a US lawsuit.

Stern is claiming $60 million in
damages, alleging that Ms Cosby
had made several untrue state-
ments about him and Birxhead.
Birkhead is also threatening to
sue. _

Last night, however, Ms Cosby

‘ stood firmly behind the book, say-

ing her information had come

from several sources and not the
Haitian nannies.

“T feel extremely confident that
we have the facts, and am very
confident in my sources, which
have not changed,” she added.

“We have even had more cor-
roboration since the book was
published. But it makes me won-
der what happened to those peo-
ple in Nassau.

“Is someone paying them to
change their story?” :







Ms Cosby said she had noth-
ing to fear from what she termed
Stern’s “frivolous” lawsuit. “Iam
even more sure today than I ever
was. I stand by my story 100 per
cent.”

Ms Cosby said she was dis-
turbed, on arriving in Nassau, to
be asked for payment.

“T don’t pay for stories,”
said.

Mr Bain couldn’t be reached
for comment.

understood the game plan — it was election
time after all — packed her bag and left with-

gut an argument on June 30 when her letter
_ said her job had ended. You see, she didn’t

know what Mr Gray now says- he had in his
mind. Nor did anyone else.

But as the PLP has acknowledged in vari-
ous statements made since the election, these
persons were hurriedly hired in positions that
had been left vacant for a period of time and
needed to be filled. It has been admitted that

- they were short-term jobs.

Members of the House burst into laughter
when Mr Ingraham in his Communication to
the House reported that 27 of the 59 general
service workers sent on short term contracts
to MICAL were assigned to the Administra-
tor’s office in Mathew Town, Inagua. One
had visions of 27 Bahamians huddled in the
Administrator’s small office. Mr Gray shout-
ed back that they were not assigned to the
Administrator for his office, but were to be
deployed by him to other areas of MICAL to
do weeding, painting or whatever job could be

found for them. Obviously, there is only so”

much that a person can weed and only so

» many posts they can paint. So obviously, these

were very short, part-time prospects.
Everything was so hurried — after all
remember elections were only around the
corner and these people had to vote — that
two persons were sent to the Administrator at
Nicholls’s Town, Andros, to report for three
months of work at the Cabbage Hill Primary
School. There was only one difficulty. They
were in Andros and their job was at a school
in the Acklins/Crooked Island constituency.
It was obvious that there was not enough
money to go around. The monthly minimum
wage. paid by the Public Service is $890.
These poor souls, hired during an election
period, were paid between $700 and $800 a
month, with one of them, right at the bottom

' of the totem poll, taking home $150 a month.

We don’t understand why Mr Gray is
putting up such a fuss. With all the evidence
out there it is difficult — if not impossible —
to-accept his story. He would be wise to
change the subject and find another political
bone to chew on.



















EDITOR, The Tribune.

PLEASE allow us valuable
space in your newspaper to follow
through on a letter published sev-
eral weeks ago about littering on
our precious.islands. I have writ-
ten also about the litter scattered
on our roadsides for all of us to
bear but the letter did not make
press,

I try again after watching this
afternoon the total disregard by
several ‘youths’ riding in the back
of a white Nissan truck and
throwing their trash out on to the
road after a visit to the beach in
Coral Harbour. Their total disre-
gard of our surroundings caused
me to honk the horn in distaste,
the truck slowed to near stop and
I decided to pass and ask ‘why’.
Verbal abuse and angry, obscene
gestures was all I was going to
receive. Their attitude plainly
very hostile as I left them behind
me.

This prompted — several
thoughts. Firstly about articles
read in your paper about street
cleaners being let go from their
jobs and think how it may be time
instead that we say a ‘big thank
you’ to what must be a thankless
job. Our road to the airport from
Coral Harbour has been reli-
giously cleaned during the last
government by a crew, that we
as residents, truly appreciate.

The street cleaners are a very
valuable asset for every day dri-
vers continue to throw garbage
out of their vehicles, Mostly fast
food clientele.

The cleaners have noticeably
been absent and the trash now
mounts daily.

I ask again that all the ‘fast
food’ merchants start a campaign
in their establishments asking
clients NOT to throw their waste
onto our roadways.

The other thought coming to
mind is the beaches. these delin-
quents frequent in Coral Harbout
on the weekends are private
properties, not the ‘Public Beach’
that is usually used and also
trashed every week.

Some are fenced but the ones
that are open (closer to the
Defence Force) seem to be fair
game for all to use and abuse.
Can we please have some author-
ities present on the weekends to
police these properties to where
they are not trespassed and
trashed for the rest of us to live
with.

We can now see why the new
developers of the south western
part of the island (South Ocean
and Albany House) may have
thought how to protect their
investment and somehow dis-

courage ‘locals’ from having -

access to the beaches!

They know. all too well this
very small slice of our society will
completely ruin the surroundings

a nation’ in 20 years

Retired teacher speaks out

HAITIAN immigrants could
within 20 years form “a nation
within a nation” in the Bahamas,
destabilising the country with a
second wave of colonisation.

This view came yesterday from
retired teacher Jeffrey Davis, an
author who has studied the Hait-
ian diaspora over many years,

Mr Davis, who wrote the book
Flight from the Third World in
the early 1990s, spoke out in
response to Freeport'lawyer Fred
Smith’s claim that Bahamians
treat Haitians like dogs.

“He is going to lose his credi-
bility making crass statements
like that,” he said. “How do
Haitians treat us? They have
broken our laws with impunity.
Mr Smith must realise that
Haitians in Haiti treat Haitians
like dogs, too.”

Mr Davis said there was a real
danger of the Bahamas being
infiltrated to such an extent by
another culture that within 20
years there could be “a Haitian
nation and Bahamian nation in
the heart of the Bahamas,”

He felt that Haitians were

intent on recolonising the.

Bahamas to escape their own
ravaged homeland.

“They have been independent
since 1804 and should be show-

ing the rest of us the way,” he

added. “But they have had 40
coups in the history, of their
nation.”

Mr Davis said for every 100
illegal Haitian immigrants sent
back to Haiti, 300 were coming
in to join the “bottom tier” of
the economy.

This process could go on
unchecked until it reached a

point where an alien culture .

could achieve “power and per-

manence” in this country,

He said “a more ardent, force-
ful and organised” campaign was
needed to repatriate Haitians in
a human manner.

Unless this was done, there
would soon be two nations in the
“womb” of the Bahamas.

Stressing that he had nothing
against Haitians as individuals,
Mr Davis advised immigrants:
“If you come here, come legally
and get yourself regularised. As
things stand, this is an invasion of
the Bahamas.”

He said locals resented hav-
ing ‘to live by the law when

Haitians clearly felt under no
such obligation. “While I pay
BEC, they use a drop-cord,” he
said.

Mr Smith’s reference. to
Haitians being treated like dogs
came during an attack on the
anti-gay campaign. He ques-
tioned the Bahamas’ claim to be
a Christian nation, citing treat-
ment of Haitians as one of sev-
eral forms of discrimination in
this country.

Police find hiding
Haitian women

waiting for boat —

SIX Haitian women, waiting for a boat to take them to Mia-
mi, were found by police hiding in an apartment in Bimini.
They were flown to the Detention Centre in Nassau.

Shortly after 3pm Monday, Police and Immigration officers
on duty at the South Bimini International Airport, received
information that a group of suspicious persons were hiding in an
apartment building on that island.

The officers went to the apartment, located on Morgan's
Drive, where they discovered six Haitian women, ranging in age
from 16 to 47 years, none ef whom had documents authorising

them to be in the Bahamas.

A male, who is also believed to be an illegal Haitian immi-
grant, fled from the building as the officers entered.

He escaped into the thick bushes.

Up to press time, he had not been located.

The six women, who told officers that they were awaiting the

catrival of a boat to take them to Miami, were ferried across to

North Bimini and detained at the Alice Town Police Station for

processing.

They were then flown to
New Providence around 3pm
Tuesday and taken to the
Carmichael Road Detention
Centre to await repatriation,
said Chief Supt. Basil V Rah-
ming. of Freeport. >

THE TRIBUNE



eae
More land survey
experts are needed

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

FREEPORT -— There is a
“dire need” for more experts to
conduct proper land surveys in
the Bahamas.

Lands and Surveys director
Tex Turnquest said this poses
an enormous challenge to the
government, which is in the
process of surveying thousands
of acres of Crown Land.

“There are very few land sur-
veyors that exist in the Bahamas
and if the numbers are not
there, we would have to go out-
side the country to get the
resources that are vitally need-
ed,” he said.

Mr Turnquest said the gov-

ernment has embarked on two .
separate projects — the Land »

Use Policy and Administration
Project (LUPAP) and the
Crown Land Management Sys-
tem (CLMS).

LUPAP seeks to identify
every parcel of land in New
Providence and Grand Bahama.
CLMS will create a digital
record of all Crown Land in the
country.

Experts from International
Lands Systems (ILS) are assist-
ing the Lands and Surveys
Department with the develop-

SY oan



ment of CLMS.

Minister of Lands and Local

Government Sidney Collie
added that the government,
through a joint venture with
IDB, contracted ILS experts for
$3. million to conduct a Land
Use Policy Administration Pro-
ject and Parcel Information
Management System (PIMS).
Mr Turnquest said the sys-
tems will significantly improve
efficiency in terms of Crown
Land grants, land registration,
and other property-related mat-
ters. ;
However, the director
stressed that there is a great

demand for trained, technically-
skilled rersons at his depart-
ment.

“There is a dire need for
skilled resources — for people -
to study the technical aspects
involving land surveying, estate
management, and forestry.” He
said it is important for young
people to consider careers in
these fields.

“If we begin to employ peo-

ple from elsewhere to do these
jobs, Bahamians will be the first
to have a problem with it. We
need to get serious about land
surveying and training persons
in those areas because the sys-
tein cannot operate unless the
land is surveyed properly,” he
said.
Mr Collie added: “The direc-
tor has sent out a call for young
Bahamians who do not see the
wisdom of getting in this busi-
ness. But I-can tell you it’s not
all real estate agents and
lawyers who do property/land
transactions. There is a lot of
opportunity for young Bahami-
ans who want to get into the
technical aspect of Lands and
Surveys.”

Because the research is
incomplete, Mr Turnquest said,
it is difficult to say how many

- acres of Crown Land there are

in Grand Bahama.

their surroundings at all times.

The armed robberies all took
place in eastern New Provi-

The first incident took place
at around 12.45am, when a man
who just arrived home from
work was approached by two
men. armed with a shotgun.

The assailants reportedly
robbed him of cash, a cell phone
and a hand chain before flee-

Shortly before 3am, two men
in a red Honda Civic robbed a
man trying to close his front
gate. The culprits took a wallet
containing cash.

Some time later, a husband
and wife were réportedly
robbed of cellular phones anda
pack of cigarettes by two men
who got out of a white vehicle
and ran over to them as they
were attempting to enter their
home. After the robbery, the
assailants sped off.

THE TRIBUNE



@ By ALISON LOWE
Tribune Staff Reporter

alowe@tribunemedia.net

THERE is a role for censor-
ship in this country but it should
not be to determine what
movies can and cannot, be
viewed by adults, according to
some members of the public.

CEO of Galleria Cinemas
Chris Mortimer, who is among
those who hold this opinion, sat
on a panel last Thursday at
COB to discuss the role of the

» Bahamas Play and Films Con-
trol Board in society. The meet-
ing was called by the new board
chairperson Cheryl Cartwright.

Mr Mortimer and others in the
room suggested that the most seri-
ous problems which the Bahamas

faces — murder, rape, violence — _

have nothing to do with what is
shown in movie theatres.

“The problem is that we have |

parents who do not play an
active role in the lives of their
kids,” said the businessman,
who feels that censorship by
adults of what their children can
and cannot see is important —
and indeed, advisable.
Furthermore, he said that to

allow the Board to practise cen-

sorship in its most extreme form
is to “presume that one person
or group can make better deci-
sions for another group of
adults” — adults who have been
deemed mature enough to vote,
for their own government.

However, Pastor Lyall Bethel
of Grace Community Church,
said that to allow certain movies
to be shown is essentially an
endorsement of their content
by Bahamian society.

Church elder Andy Knowles
said with any subject matter,
“the more you watch it the more
you are going to think it’s okay”.

The word “censorship”. has
problematic and negative con-
notations, said Pastor Bethel.
He suggested that the board’s
work should be thought of more
as the “setting of standards”.

Affirming his “unapologetic
support?’ for. the work of the
board, he added: “Standards
he
k



encase wer rapes |
He claimed that the board’s
actions do not qualify as “true
censorship” as this would entail
the “total repression” of some-
thing. With Bahamians still free
to purchase any films: to view
in their own homes, this is not
what is occurring, he said.

The religious leader charged
that the standards which must
be set and upheld by the board
should be based upon Christ-
ian values, as the preamble to
the constitution designates this
country as a “Christian nation”.

Erin Greene, spokesperson for
the gay rights group the Rainbow
Alliance said it was hypocritical of
the board to ban Brokeback
Mountain —a movie about a “love
affair between two men” in the
words of COB professor and pan-

elist Michael Stevenson — but reg-

‘ularly approve movies with
extremely violent content. _
“Let’s focus our energies on
where they need to be focused,”
_ said Ms Greene. ;

The board is made up of 40
persons and falls under the Min-
istry of National Security. It
therefore turns to the minister
of national security — currently
Tommy Turnquest — for the res-
olution of disputes over what
censorship is and is not justifi-
able in a democratic society.

According to Lester Mor-
timer, an attorney with law firm
Callenders and Co, there are
several reasons why Bahamians
should have cause for concern
about the workings of the board.

“A “very wide power” given



us to.aim higher,,t6 strive

uh

Cheryl Cartwright

to the minister to “censor plays
and films without any refer-
ence” to what restrictions on
freedom are permissible in the
constitution is one such reason,
he suggested.

For example, while the con-
stitution permits infringements
of freedom for reasons of “pub-
lic safety, public order or public
morality” the act which man-

dates the board adds that films:

can be censored if they are con-
trary to “public morality or the
public interest.”

Mr Mortimer presented evi-
dence from numerous historic
rulings on freedom of expres-
sion, to the overall effect that
for the greater good, one must
err on the side of freedom of
expression rather than censor-
ship in a democratic society.

To allow adults to make up
their own mind about what they

see in the movie theatre, for-
example, helps them to attain:

“self fulfillment”, assists in the
“discovery of truth”, strength-
ens their decision-making capac-
ity, and helps societies adapt to
change, one ruling claimed.

However Pastor Bethel said
that the board’s function is not
to limit the “personal freedom”
of persons interested in seeing
such films, but rather is focused
on the protection of the “public
good”.

He said that to allow “unlim-
ited personal freedoms”, such
as the right to view certain films,
would allow, a few:to detrimen-
tally infringe, on the rights of

others in society.”

COB associate professor
Michael Stevenson, who con-
demned what he described as
the board’s “unconstitutional”
decision to ban films, spoke in
favour of the need for “deep
dialogue and conversation” on
matters such as the censorship
of films or plays.

To:allow more persons to
engage in debate about the
issue would foster “mutual
understanding and ultimately
the formation of consensus.”

He said that public knowledge
of the board’s decisions on which
films are censored and why has
traditionally been restricted in
this country by “powerful reli-
gious interests ... that choose to
govern questions of morality
from afar and in the dark and
whom the government chooses
not to subject to.the scrutiny of
democratic dialogue.”

Having been “robbed of the
chance to engage in democratic
dialogue about morality” per-
sons become less understand-
ing of one another and ulti-

mately more prone to harming

those around them, he said.
According to Mr Stevenson,

“Brokeback Mountain is not the

only critically acclaimed movie’

to have been shut away from
the eyes of the Bahamian”.
City of God, a movie which
won numerous accolades, also
faced the axe at their hands.
Board chairwoman Cheryl
Cartwright told those gathered
that she sees the board’s work
as a necessary form of “public
service”, pointing out that none
of those on the board are paid
for the time they put into it.
Whether Bahamians want to
“see what we would like to see
or who we are” is an issue that
the board has to take into con-
sideration, she suggested,
The 40 board members have
held their positions for two and
a half months.

THE TRIBUNE



A challe nge to the African
Diaspora in the ale

@ By Arthur Foulkes

(The article printed below is
from a speech by Sir Arthur
Foulkes in Gambier Village on
the occasion of the Gambier
Homecoming Festival in
August)

| hank you for inviting

me to this opening cer-
emony of the annual Home-
coming Festival on Gambier
Day and for the opportunity to
share some thoughts with you.

- | have lived many places in
the Bahamas - from Inagua to
Andros, from Chippingham to
Hawkins Hill, and places in
between - but for most of the
time my family and I have been
living right here in the Gam-
bier neighbourhood.

I cannot lay claim to a con-
nection with the founding
fathers of this Village. The boat
that brought my African ances-
tors landed somewhere else.
But I can claim to be a resident
and a neighbour for nearly 40
years. ;

And so I am proud to see the
flowering of awareness and the

‘determined efforts to take hold
of, to conserve, and to celebrate

our cultural and historical her-
itage here in Gambier. I con-
gratulate all who were instru-
mental in getting this Festival
on to our national calendar,
especially Mr Neville Wisdom.

What we are about is a cele-
bration of our culture, and [
should like to recall the words
of two men who were 19th cen-
tury contemporaries.

“Human culture is the art of

revealing to a man the true idea
of his being, his endowment, his
possessions, and of fitting him
to use these for the growth,
renewal, and perfection of his
spirit. It is the art of completing
aman.”

Those words were written by
Bronson Alcott; and this is what
Thomas Carlyle said:

“The great law of culture is,
let each become all that he was
created capable of being;
expand, if possible, to his full
growth; resisting all impedi-
ments, casting all foreign, espe-
cially all noxious adhesions...”

Every branch of human cul-
ture is influenced and shaped
by many elements including
geography, climate and histo-
ry. I say branch advisedly
because all human culture is
shaped by another powerful

element, and that is the human
spirit, the essence that is shared
by all humankind, the thing
which gives meaning to the
words: We are one.

So any particular culture is a
variation of a broader human
culture just as there are varia-
tions on a musical theme. We
all recognise the grand theme
when we'see it and we are fas-
cinated by the multitude of vari-
ations of which it is capable.

When we hear a form of
Asian music, for instance, we
recognise it as music. The same
when we hear African music,
or Middle Eastern music or
European music, or our own
Caribbean miusic.

We want to appreciate and
enjoy them all. So I do not

‘ entirely agree with Thomas

Carlyle about casting foreign
influences. But we must cer-

tainly be wary of what he calls »

the noxious adhesions, the ones
that poison the best that is in
us, that tend to disfigure the
best that we are

l am talking about the
influences that encourage
us to poison our bodies with
drugs, to exchange our tradi-

tional Bahamian manners for
the crude behaviour and the

language of the American

hood, to exchange the beauty .

that we are capable of creating
for sheer ugliness, to reinforce
the self-hatred that the slave
master used to control the slave.

So while we appreciate all
that the world and human his-
tory has to offer that is posi-
tive, we must reject the negative
- and every culture has its neg-
atives. And we must also be

honest and determined to deal -
- with the negative aspects of our

own culture

We must root out ugly home-
grown habits before we come
to accept them as a necessary
part of Bahamian culture. They
are not. They are nothing but
weeds.

We are fortunate inasmuch
as our Bahamian culture has
benefited from the rest of the
world. For instance, some of
the chords in our theme speak
of the European experience in
political and economic devel-
opment.

But we are ever-conscious of
the powerful influence of our
African heritage and the some-
times overwhelming and con-
fusing history of slavery.

The founders of Gambier
Village were not slaves in this
community, but like tens of
thousands before them, they

were in shackles for the long
and tortuous Middle Passage
journey. They were part of a
society that was largely con-
structed around slavery and dis-
figured by it.

That experience can no more

_ be eliminated from our psyche

and consciousness than the ter-

rible experiences of other peo-.

ples that continue to influence
their outlook and their destiny.
And why is that so? Simply
because we are human.

| he Jews are a good
example. But one dif-
ference between the Jews and

us, at least in most of Western
society today, is that there is a

_ strong movement to exorcise ©
all the demons of anti-Semitism

- in language and in art. Some
go so far as to advocate making
the denial of HG Holocaust a
crime.

By contrast, many of the
roots of prejudice against
Africans.and their descendants
in the West are still very much
in place. You are familiar with
some the language used even
by people who regard them-
selves as liberal -expressions
such as “black-on-black vio-
lence”.

Did- you ever-hear- anyone
talk about on white-on-white

‘violence? And do you wonder

why it never occurs to them to
examine the reason for this?’
Then there is the persistent
stereotyping, as if all African
Americans, for instance, think
or act alike, or see themselves in
precisely the same way, or use
the same language as the crim-
inals and pimps in the hood.
During the controversy over
the Don Imus insult to some
very fine African American
women, there were those who
were all too ready to blame the
rap artists instead of the racist

culprit. They even blamed the.

overt racism ofa German sol-
dier on the rappers!

‘The one that trritates. me

most is the assertion by so
many, including some so-called
conservative intellectuals (black

‘and white) that disadvantaged -.
African Americans are to’

blame for their state because

-other people have survived slav-

ery and are doing just fine.

| he truth is that no oth-
er people in the history

’ of humankind have suffered

anything like the Middle Pas-
sage slave trade and the
enslavement of black Africans
in the Americas.

It was, in its totality, EPs
dented.

It was unprecedented in that
it was based on race.

It was unprecedented in its
intensity, in its brutality and i in
its duration.

It was unprecedented in that

‘the slaves were cut off from

their land and from their kin-
folk, from their language, from
their culture and from their reli-
gion.

Tt was unprecedented in that
for generations they were not
only treated as inferior but sys-
tematically subjected to brain-
washing to make them believe
that they were inferior.

Never before nor since has a
race of people been subjected
to such a sustained onslaught
of misery, terror and dehuman-
isation as Africans in the New
World. And much of it contin-
ued after slavery.

What is remarkable, there :

fore, is not that many of them
act as if they have been trau-
matised; after all, they are only
human. What is remarkable is
that they have survived at all.
This brings me to the message I
should like to leave with you.

Peo of African
descent must, like the
Jews, demand at least an

acknowledgment of the injus-
tice inflicted upon them. .But,

more importantly, they must
celebrate the fact that as a race
they survived their prolonged
holocaust.

Some of the. descendants of ‘”
black Africans in the New
World - in America, in South
America, in the Caribbean, and.
in The Bahamas - still wallow in
self-pity and make excuses for
their failures.

It is time to stop that. Many
of our forebears rose above that
-- and they were far worse off
than any of us. They had higher
mountains to climb and wider
rivers to. cross. But. they
climbed, and they crossed; and
they left us a goodly heritage.

The slaves suffered great
indignities, but the great shame
of slavery is neither for them
nor for us to bear. The shame
belongs entirely to the slave
masters, and to those who
would attempt to ‘sanitise this
awful history.

The people who survived the
worst that the world could
inflict, the people who estab-
lished the Village of Gambier

_and Fox Hilland Adelaide and |
Carmichael - our African arices-

tors - were neither cowards nor
quitters. If they were, we would
not have been here.

There was nothing inferior
about them. They were a most
remarkable people, a coura-
geous race, physically and psy-

chologically powerful; and the

wellsprings of their spirituality
ran deep.

They knew that it was impor- —
tant for them to nurture the
next generation, to establish
communities so that they in
turn could survive -even in a
hostile environment.

Do we have any idea of the
difficulties they had to over-
come? Of the courage and
determination they had to sum-
mon up?

ai . his precious ener this

patrimony;, this inheri-
tance is now ours. It is for us
to pass it on to future genera-
tions, to remind them of the
courage and sacrifice of our
noble ancestors.

We must teach our young
people pride in their heritage,

‘and inspire them to build on

what our forebears established,
not to destroy it with excessive
use of alcohol and drugs, and
crime, and bad manners, and
slothfulness, and disrespect.

We must teach them to
become all that they were cre-
ated capable of being, to
expand to their full growth, to
overcome all the obstacles, to
resist all the noxious adhe-
sions. :

We must teach our young
men and women how to respect
each other, how to honour their
elders, and how to uphold the
dignity and the rights of oth-
ers.
~ We must teach them that the
art of completing a man is not
about how much weed they can
smoke, not about how much
bad language they can spout,
but about assuming responsi-

‘bility, and conducting them-

selves with dignity as their fore-
bears did.

We must teach them to get
in touch with the wellsprings
that made Gambier Village pos-

‘sible. We must teach them that

it is not smart, not Bahamian, to
adopt the vulgar language and
behaviour of some in the Amer-
ican hood.

The success of the nation
depends upon the success of
Gambier Village and other vil-
lages, towns and communities
throughout these islands. The
nation begins right here. If we
allow our communities and our
families to go to hell, the nation.
will certainly follow.

But if we honour our ances-
tors, treasure our cultural and
historical heritage, and build
strong communities, strong
families, then there will be no
limit to what we can achieve as
a people.

Pires oS eee
Bahamas Culture Day
celebrated in New York

BAHAMIAN exiles in
New York have been cele-
brating one of their best sum-
mer cultural programmes
ever.

The Bahamian American
Cultural Society concluded its
schedule on a high note with
its annual Bahamas. Culture
Day last month.

- And members have vowed
to make the event even better
in years to come.

“The confidence and deter-
mination of the society’s
members and ardent friends
were undaunted,” said mem-
ber Beryl Edgecombe.

The Culture Day was truly
representative of the society’s
mission — to expose Bahamian
culture in the interest of peace
and maintaining a strong
bridge between Bahamian-
Americans and their home-
land.

Relaxing with Bahamian

music by Ronnie Butler, KB,,

Elon Moxey and others, and
watching the full moon over
the East River separating
Brooklyn from Manhattan, a
senior Bahamian who has
been in New York for over
50 years smiled and said:
“This reminds me of days

. long ago sitting by the beach
in The Bahamas, longing to
go to New York.”

A young man in his early
twentiés, with a Goombay
punch in his hand, said: “I

was born here.
“T don’t know
much



about The Bahamas. How can
I join your group and know
more?”

Three other major events
of BACS this summer were
participation in the African
American Day Parade in Sep-
tember; the International Cul-
tures Expo-Fest and Parade
in June and the provision of
an information and culture
booth during The West Indian
American Carnival on Sep:
tember 4.

In the African American
Day Parade, BACS joined
university bands, union floats
and political personalities in
honouring black heritage and
heroes. An automobile dec-
orated with the Bahamian
colours and flag, pumping out

- Junkanoo music, was preced-
_ed by two persons carrying

the BACS emblem.

Following were partici-
pants wearing T-shirts of
aquamarine, yellow and black,
each emblazoned with
*Junkanoo” on the front and
“Bahamas” on the back.

BACS’s presentation was
well received along the 30-
block route. People were
moving to the Junkanoo beat,
clapping their hands, and
cheering loudly.

As BACS’s cultural cara-
van danced along 125 Street
near the Adam Clayton Pow-
ell State Building, Radio Sta-
tion WBLS praised BACS for
its presentation and

representation of

The Bahamas culture,

The announcer zeroed in
on The Junkanoo Expres-
sions, and highlighted The
Bahamas as a most preferred
tourist resort.

This successful event was
foreshadowed by BACS’s
active participation in the
planning and presentation of
the International Cultural
Festival, held earlier in June.

As a member of the Inter-
national Immigrants Founda-
tion — International Cultures
Mission United Nations,

BACS joined other nations.
Caribbean,.

from Asia,
Europe and Latin American
in parades along the Avenue
of The Americas, manned a
cultural booth, and present-
ed on stage. The theme was,
“Beautiful Bahamas .... We
make peace not war.”

On September 4, US
Labour Day, BACS provid-
ed an information booth
about the society and to show-

case samples of Bahamas cul-'

ture, especially in food. An
estimated 1,500-2,000 people
stopped and made inquiries
about The Bahamas, the soci-
ety and aspects of Bahamas
culture.

Ministry responds

to Tribune article
on Fox Hill prisoner

THE Ministry of National
Security, in'a statement issued

‘yesterday, said that for the

“most part, the assertions”
made by the family of Fox Hill
inmate Trent Albury of Abaco
and published in The Tribune
on Monday, October 8, “can-
not be supported by facts.”
Those assertions were
reported in the Insight feature
by Tribune Managing Editor
John Marquis headed, “Hor-

the Prison (along with a visit-
ing psychiatrist and a dentist).
Mr Albury is regularly seen

-by the psychiatrist and he is

seen by the prison physician
as he requests,” said the Min-
istry.

“With regard to medication,
Mr Albury is given medication
as prescribed by both the psy-
chiatrist and prison physician,
and receives medication for all
known ailments on a daily
basis. He was being treated for
depression prior to his incar-
ceration at Her Majesty’s
Prison. His broken eyeglasses
have been OPP ee and
returned to

“Asa eraahded inmate, Mr
Albury receives cooked food
from relatives on a daily basis
and he is allowed a change of
clothing and bedding from rel-
atives every Tuesday.

“With respect to the so-called
piece of rope that an inmate
once used to hang himself and
which now supposedly dangles
from the ceiling of Mr

_ Albury’s cell, this claim is

baseless. There is not now nor
has there been a piece of rope
dangling from the ceiling of
Mr Albury’s cell, nor at any
time has Mr Albury been
housed in a cell or a block
within which an inmate com-
mitted suicide.

“While there are many chal-
lenges facing Her Majesty’s
Prison, it is clear to the most
cursory observer that there is a
heightened regard for human
rights. This is best illustrated
by the total absence of gangs;

the rarity of fights; the scarci-

ty of escapes; the infrequency
of hunger strikes and suicide
attempts; and the overall
atmosphere of humaneness,
orderliness, containment and
control. Growth and rehabili-
tation opportunities now char-
acterise Her Majesty’s Prison,”
said the Ministry of National
Security.

THE TRIBUNE

Tribune and Guardian
‘bucking the trends’

THE Tribune and Nassau Guardian are buck-

ing the trends. Tribune circulation continues to |

rise steadily and is now consistently very close to
20,000 copies on Thursday, its biggest sales day et
the week.

The Nassau Guardian is also standing firm on
the best-selling day of the week, reinforcing The
Tribune’s and Guardian’s positions as market
leaders.

“No. other newspapers come close to the
unmatched paid circulation that these two vibrant
titles give an advertiser,” said Mr Tony Ferguson,
President of the Nassau Guardian.

“Monday and Thursday have always been the
strongest sales days, but The Tribune’s circulation
is now consistently hitting new heights,” added Mr
Robert Carron, Chief Operating Officer of The
Nassau Guardian and The Tribune.

“We are very pleased that the Nassau
Guardian circulation has also rebounded
nicely.

“Its dedicated staff, new team, unique design
and team of journalists now headed by Ms Erica
Wells and our President Mr Tony Ferguson have
reinvigorated the product,” he added.

“Tam also very proud of our wonderful fami
ly at The Tribune headed by Mr John Marquis
and the job they do each and every day in deliv-
ering the news to the Bahamian public,” said Mr
Carron.

“The Tribune’s continuing success is down to
the commitment and ability of our staff across the
board, excellent editorial quality, coverage of
issues that Bahamians find important to them,

-and an excellent distribution system,” said: Mr

Paco Nunez, The Tribune’s news editor.

Local writers ee their voices heard

THE Tribune /College of
the Bahamas Partnership for
Literacy combined with the
National Art Gallery of the
Bahamas to present two very
successful nights of readings
by local writers.

The evenings were organ-
ised as part of the partner-
ship’s contribution to Inter-
national Literacy Month.

“Believing that they share
a responsibility towards pro-
ducing an informed and liter-
ate citizenship, the college,
The Tribune and NAGB
viewed these evenings as a
way to enhance the profiles of

local writers and to promote
an active dialogue on the place
of literacy and Bahamian writ-
ing in our society,” said organ-
isers in a statement.

The presentations took
place in the inspiring sur-
roundings of the NAGB and
featured renaissance woman,
poet, performer, artist and
writer Dr Desiree Cox; author
of “The Debbie Ferguson Sto-
ry - Born To Run” Gardon
Mills; and poet, writer, singer
and performer Pat Rahming.

Mr Mills and Dr Cox shared
the first evening and present-
ed contrasting material to a
lively, standing room. only
audience.

Dr Cox read from her novel :

the. Bahamas of her formative .
years. . mh

She. shared many insights
and stories concerning people

and events that have influ.

enced her artistic career and
answered some informed and

. probing questions from the

very involved audience.
Mr Mills read from some

recent poems and stories that
he is putting together into a~

collection and concluded with
two extracts from his book.

Again the audience asked
informed questions and Rah-
ming's fascinating answers
threw light on his writing
process and his influences.

“The number of people who
came out and the level of
‘involvement they exhibited
show that there is a very real
appreciation of and interest in
Bahamian writing,” the organ-
isers said. “The Tribune /Col-
lege of The Bahamas Partner-
ship for Literacy looks back
on the evenings as successes
and plans to promote similar
events in the future.”

for government staff

FROM page one

in length from one’ to Six
months for a period between
January 2 and June 30, 2007. =.
Additionally, the prime min:
ister said that 32 people were
engaged in the,former ministry
of local government and con-

sumer affairs for a period from.

January 1st to May 10th of this
year.

“T find it interesting,’ Mr
Speaker, two letters of appoint-
ment on three, month contrac-
tual terms issued on two sepa-
rate individuals were issued
‘under first sight’ of the admin-
istrator at Nicholls ‘Town;

Andros, notwithstanding their :

engagement to provide setvice
at Cabbage Hill Primary
School. Iam not aware of any

school by that namé' in

Andros,” Mr Ingraham said.
Of this group of temporary

workers whose, names:.and «.
salaries

were tabled-

, most were employed at a
salary of $700 per month and
two at $800 per month, which
the prime minister emphasized,
was beneath the $890 minimum
wage “paid by the public ser-
vice.’

The prime minister also
tabled the letters of appoint-
ment for the workers verifying
the time frame of the contracts
issued by the former govern-
ment. He noted that 27 of the
contract workers. in, the
MICAL constituency were
assigned to work in the admin-
istrator’s office.

Despite the evidence pre-
sented by the prime minister,
Mr Gray maintained that Mrs
Ingraham was victimised, stat-
ing that she was hired “with
the intention to become: per-
manent”.

The prime minister chal-
lenged the veracity of this
statement by Mr Gray citing

the letters of appointment for.

Mrs Ingraham. On the Febru-

was issued. on March 7th
extending ‘this period for two
- months,

. With two letters,. donly
employing Mrs: Ingraham fora
few months, the prime minister
said “the question of intention

of taking her on permanently,

is very clear.”

_ Explaining the short term
‘contracts issued by the PLP,
Mr Gray responded that the
financial state of Morton Salt
earlier this year, led him to
seek cabinet approval “during
the month of March or there-
abouts” to spend $50,000. in

could:have.”

“$The basis upon which he
got the $50,000 from the cabi-
net was not about Morton, ” Mr
Ingraham declared.

“I did not say it ‘was about

“What I said was; when Mor-

people in March. or there-

ey (the $50,000) to assist,those. .

Gray added.
Mr Gray also denied that 27
‘workers were stationed in the
administrator’s office in

Cuba says embargo

cost country dearly

IN a one year period between
2006 and 2007, the Cuban food
sector lost $258 million as a
result of the American embar-
go, according to the government
of Cuba.

A new report by Cuban offi-
cials says the country’s trans-
port sector lost $208.8 million
in the same period, while the
cultural sector suffered a
$20,365,000 blow.

The damage to the national

health service was estimated at

$30 million.

The report has been released
in the run-up to what has become
an annual exercise in the UN —
the vote on Whether the US
should end its embargo on Cuba.

At the end of this month, the
Bahamas will be asked to vote
in the UN on whether the
embargo — in place since 1962 —
should continue.

This will follow a submission
of a draft resolution entitled
“Necessity of ending the eco-
nomic, commercial and financial
embargo imposed by the United
States of America against Cuba”
for the consideration of the UN
General Assembly on Tuesday
October, 30.

It will be the 16th year in
Which members states have
been asked to vote on the reso-
_ lution. Last year, 183 member
states out of a total of 191 voted
to end the embargo.

In'the last year, the embargo —

Pays ia Bare nerice



labelled an “economic war” by
the Cuban government — has
been intensified, “despite. the
express wishes of the international
community,” the report said.

The report said the blockade
has had negative repercussions
on every aspect of life — from
the food Cubans eat, to public
health, to education, to trans-
port and-culture and equally;
on the opportunities for Amer-
ican citizens and the rest of the
world to benefit from Cuba’s
offerings in these areas.

The extraterritorial effects of
the embargo have ,been
increased, making it harder for
Cuba to trade with at least 30
other countries that it has tra-
ditionally turned to for prod-

ucts it is not allowed to pur- ~

chase in the US.
“Extraterritorality has been

taken to such an extreme that
Cuban citizens living, abroad
have been obliged to close their
bank accounts, or risk having
them cancelled, at local banks
that have been taken over by
American banks or have some
kind of affiliation with the lat-
ter,” the report said.
Sanctions have Hopped
Cubans from travelling to acade-.'
mic and medical conferences they
have been invited to in the US
and the same has been the case

‘for Americans invited to Cuba. |

A growing number of fines
imposed on Americans who
travel to Cuba by their own
government has caused the
number of American visits to
Cuba to drop by 48,000 in the
last four years, said the report.

The Cuban healthcare sys-
tem, hailed as a model by many,
and the transport sector, have
taken a significant blow it said.

Medical equipment and phar-
maceuticals, along with mechan-
ical components, only available
in the US are simply not obtain-.
able, to the detriment of the
Cuban public’s health and the

‘economy. Where it is available

elsewhere, it will cost more to
buy and import, noted the report.
Cuba contends that Wash-
ington’s policy is ultimately
intended to “deprive the Cuban
people of its sovereignty and of
the exercise of its right to self
determination.”

Embargo tightening ‘limits medicines’

THE Cuban government says

that as a result of the recent _

tightening of the American

embargo, an inhalatory anaes-

thetic used to prepare children
for surgery cannot be obtained.

A new report says this has
caused doctors to have to use
inferior substitutes that are ulti-
mately more costly.

This is just one of many
examples in the report of how
the embargo has affected life
for the Cuban’ population: ¥ *

~ Even attempts: to purchase
medical equipment from Japan
has been blocked as more than
10 per cent of a particular

*

Tiki Torch

device’s components were man-

ufactured in the US, it noted.

It said intensified sanctions
have also limited the number.
of websites and services Cubans
can access online, impacting
education.

Google Earth and certain anti-
virus software updates are not
available to Cubans and the
website tells them: “This product
is not available in your country.”

Supplies which would support
educationaliprégranimes ‘are |

~denied-to the-country~by-the-~

embargo, impeding the “most
basic academic and educational
freedoms” of its people, said

the report.

Culturally, the ability of |
Cubans to perform abroad and
for Americans to visit Cuba to
enjoy its traditions has aso been
diminished.

In 2006, not a single Gaban
band was allowed to perform
in the US on the grounds that it
was against US interests.

Cuban artists were stopped
from attending the Grammy
awards to which they were invit-
eMlewetuinbs shy sis

- Sales’ of Cubartibooks in the’
last year have suffered to the’
tune of $100,000, and cultural
exchanges have been diminished.

NEEDED IMMEDIATELY | Domestic Investment Board

was never appointed

FROM page one

North Andros, Mr Ingraham
painted a grim picture of how
certain sections of the Christie-
led government operated.

“I wish further to advise that
the relevant Ministry’s files, the
conclusions of Cabinet, as well
as information provided to me
by a member of the private sec-
tor, appointed in September,
2006 to what was termed a
‘Core Action Group’, confirm
that a Domestic Investment
Board was never appointed by
the Christie-led government.
The records of the ministry are
replete with the intention and
plans for the establishment of
a Board.

“Indeed, a proposal for the
appointment of the Board was
considered by the Cabinet in
October, 2006. At that time, the
Cabinet determined that the
structure proposed by the Min-
istry of Financial Services and
Investments was beyond that
anticipated by the government.

OCTOBER, 2007

















The Cabinet ‘invited the min-
ister responsible to further dis-
cuss the initiative to establish a
Domestic Investment Board
with the Prime Minister and the
Minister of State for Finance
and hence to revert with a
revised proposal on the same’.

“Whether the requested con-
sultation between the minister,
the Prime Minister, and the
Minister of State for Finance
took place, I do not know. The

files are silent on the matter. °

However draft Cabinet papers
are on file. None was perfected
and the minister never reverted
to Cabinet on the matter. Con-
sequently, Cabinet never
approved the appointment of a
Domestic Investments Board,”
he said.

Mr Ingraham said that two
consultants were appointed to
the Domestic Investment
Board, Don Demeritte, who
previously was appointed as
chairman of the Water and
Sewerage Corporation, and
Paul Major, the former general
manager of Bahamasair. In
addition, he said, an ‘Advisory
Action Group’, which included
a number of representatives
from the public and private sec-
tors was also appointed, he said.

However, the then Minister
of Financial Services, PLP MP
for North Andros Vincent Peet

said that the Board had met,
“almost every week” and did a
“number of things.”

“There were some 74 appli-
cations which were brought
before the Domestic Investment
Board. The Board was not kept
private, it was publicized. It had
very, very active meetings. i

“There were talk shows, sem- :
inars, in fact ones that the Board
produced,” Mr Peet explained.

“We took the view, Mr
Speaker, that because of the
large foreign investment in the
Bahamas, it was important for
Bahamian investors to share in
this industry, and that was why
the Board was established.”

In response to this, Mr Ingra-
ham said that he will take the
course of action, as Prime Min-
ister, that if Mr Peet continued:
to “mislead” the House of :
Assembly he would not interact
with Mr Peet until he concedes
that he has misled the hon-
ourable chamber.

Mr Peet continued to make
his case, claiming that if Mr -:
Ingraham’s supporters cannot
find the records of the meetings
— that was another matter. .

Mr Ingraham answered final-
ly that he would work towards
making public government’s
position on the establishment :
of the Domestic Investment :
Board.

tion (from Knowles’ attorney)
which will be reviewed if he so
desires.”

When asked to respond to the
claims made by Knowles that, ,
the former administration may
have acted inappropriately and —
was “deceived” by US authori-. y
ties, Mr Symonette said that the 3
paperwork indicated that due’ 5
diligence was performed. i

“The (extradition) files indi-} b
cate that the appropriate pro- °
cedure was followed, (howev-.
er) the question to be asked i is,,
should he have been extradited _,
while he had a case pending. f
(before the courts)?”

Previous reports indicate that.
during the process of Knowles’
extradition in August, 2006 he ]
had an outstanding writ of |
habeas corpus filed with the 1
Bahamas Supreme Court.

Mr Symonette added that,
Knowles had the right for his
case to be heard before the ,
Bahamian court system.

Attempts were made to con- ;;
tact Roger Minnis, Knowles’
Bahamian attorney, on the sta-,,
tus of a formal application, but, ,
up to press time he could not. :

Athletes’ school visits inspire
students and team members



SCHOOL visits by the
award-winning athletes of
Team Bahamas are more
than just an effort to put the
champions on display,
according to Minister of
State for Youth and Sports
Byran Woodside.

“It is so important in our
nation to expose our children
to Team Bahamas as we cel-
ebrate champions in this
National Youth Month,” Mr
Woodside said. “It is impor-
tant for them to identify with
Team Bahamas and have
that sense of pride that we
all do throughout this coun-
try.

“It is an opportunity to
instil pride in the young peo-
ple of this country and I
could. find no better group
of persons to do that than
Team Bahamas.”

Team Bahamas member
and International Associa-
tion of Athletics Federations
(IAAF) silver medalist Chris
Brown said that it is “a joy

and a pleasure” to visit with

students.

“Tt makes the whole team

and me feel proud to know
that we could come back and
give something back to the
community and the little fans
and the big fans; so it feels
pretty good to come home
and show them love and they
show us love,” he said.
Team Bahamas member
Andrae Williams, who was
also an IAAF silver medalist,

added that way the students’

react to seeing them makes
him feel good inside. —

“It's just something good,
going around and encourag-
ing the students to stay
focused,” he said. “They
could be right where we are,
too — so, it is something pos-
itive.”

Carifta Games silver
medalist and St John's stu-
dent Wayne Cleare said he

=was*“ovetjoyed™ to have

Team Bahamas at-his school
and appreciated what effect
their visit will have on the
students.

_ “With all the negative
things out there for young

people to get into, to have

these people come to our
school and make a positive
impact, it makes me happy,”
he said.

“As a runner myself, it
really encourages me to
believe that I could make it
and, one day, come back
here to St John's,” he said.
“It makes me feel'like I
could do it.”

Chris Brown added that he
feels proud that the team's
accomplishments could
inspire and encourage young
male athletes because of his
own personal journey.

“For me, it.was a struggle,
from day one, and [| am still
striving,” he said. “I look out
there and say, 'If I could do
it, anybody else could de it'.”

Bahamas track and field
coach and deputy director of
sports Frank “Pancho” Rah-
ming said: “These students
have dreams and aspirations
and if they look at our ath-
letes, they will realise that
all these athletes had dreams
and aspirations and they
worked hard enough and
they achieved what they
worked hard for.

“It's good for the athletes
themselves to speak to the
youngsters and let them
know that it is not all guns
and knives and _ being
rogues,” he added. “It's
more about striving for
something positive, that's
really what it is.”

Chris Brown said: “I just
want to tell our youth, male
or female, but especially to
the young men, to never give
up and always choose the
positive road in life because
you never know where it's
going to take you.

Gerhard Ertl wins

Nobel chemistry prize for
chemical reaction research

m@ STOCKHOLM, Sweden

GERHARD Ertl of Ger-
many won the 2007 Nobel
Prize in chemistry on Wednes-
day for studies of chemical
reactions on solid surfaces,
which are key to understand-
ing questions like how pollu-
tion eats away at the ozone
layer, according to Associated
Press. |

Ertl’s research laid the foun-
dation of modern surface
chemistry, which has helped
explain how fuel cells produce
energy without pollution, how
catalytic converters clean up
car exhaust and even why iron
rusts, the Royal Swedish Acad-
emy of Sciences said.

His work has paved the way
for development of cleaner
energy sources and will guide
the development of fuel cells,
said Astrid Graslund, secre-
tary of the Nobel Committee
for Chemistry.

Ertl, who won the prize on
his 71st birthday, told reporters
that it “is the best birthday
present that you can give to
somebody.”

“I am speechless,” Ertl told
The Associated Press from his

wy

office in Berlin. “I was not
counting on this.”

Ertl is an emeritus professor
at the Fritz Haber Institute of
the Max Planck Society in
Berlin. Planck and Haber were
themselves Nobel laureates,
winning the physics and chem-
istry prizes in 1918.

The academy said Ertl pro-
vided a detailed description of
how chemical reactions take
place on surfaces and studied
some of the most fundamen-
tal mysteries in that field.

Ertl showed how to obtain
reliable results in this difficult
area of research, and his find-
ings applied in both academic
studies and_ industrial
development, the academy
said.

“Surface chemistry can even
explain the destruction of the
ozone layer, as vital steps in
the reaction actually take place
on the surfaces of small crys-
tals of ice in the stratosphere,”
the award citation said.

Americans Mario R. Capec-
chi and Oliver Smithies, and
Briton Sir Martin J. Evans,
won the 2007 Nobel Prize in
medicine on Monday for
groundbreaking discoveries

that led to a powerful tech-
nique for manipulating mouse
genes.

On Tuesday, France’s Albert
Fert and German’ Peter Gru-
enberg won the physics award
for discovering a phenomenon
that lets computers and digi-
tal music players store reams
of data on ever-shrinking hard
disks.

German Chancellor Angela
Merkel congratulated both
German winners.

“I'am very happy that this
year we managed to get the
Nobel prizes in both disciplines
— physics and chemistry,” she
said. “This is a special honor
for Germany’s scientists.”

German President Horst
Koehler sent a congratulatory
letter to Ertl. “In the truest
sense of Alfred Nobel, you
have made a contribution to
improve the lives of the peo-
ple,” Koehler wrote.

Prizes for literature, peace
and economics will be
announced through Oct. 15.

The awards — each worth
$1.5 million — will be handed
out by Sweden’s King Carl
XVI Gustaf at a ceremony in
Stockholm on Dec. 10.

Soyuz rocket
lifts off, carrying
US, Russian and

Malaysian on space
Station mission

@ BAIKONUR, Kazakhstan

A RUSSIAN rocket blasted off
from a launch facility in Kaza-
khstan on Wednesday, carrying
an American, a Russian and a
Malaysian to the international
space station, according to Asso-
ciated Press.

The Soyuz-FG rocket soared
into a darkening sky above the
Kazakh steppe.

Aboard were Peggy Whitson of

Beaconsfield, Iowa, who will be
the first woman to command the
space station, veteran Russian cos-
monaut Yuri Malenchenko, and
Dr. Sheikh Muszaphar Shukor,
the ninth Muslim in space but the

‘first from Malaysia. They will

arrive in two days.

The mission coincides with the
last days of Ramadan, the holy
month when Muslims fast from
dawn until sundown, but
Malaysian clerics decreed ‘that

HARDWARE & PLUM



Sheikh Muszaphar will be excused
from fasting while in space.

His religion also requires that
he face Mecca for prayer — a
direction. that will change as the
spacecraft orbits the Earth — but
clerics decided that the exact loca-
tion matters only for the begin-
ning of the prayer ritual.

Applause broke out among
space officials and other onlookers
at the launch site as the spacecraft
entered orbit. Sheikh Muszaphar’s
parents watched the liftoff from

an observation area, praying and —

in tears.

“I’m happy for my country, for
Russia, for the United States and
everybody,” his father said.

Whitson and Malenchenko will
stay on as the station’s new crew,
replacing cosmonauts Fyodor
Yurchikhin and Oleg Kotov, and
will be joined in October by U.S.
astronaut Daniel Tani, who is
arriving with the space shuttle Dis-
covery.

Tani will replace fellow Ameri-
can Clayton Anderson, who has
been at the station since June.

Sheikh Muszaphar, a 35-year-
old orthopedic surgeon, is to spend
about 10 days on the station, per-
forming experiments involving dis-
eases and the effects of micro-
gravity and space radiation on cells
and genes.

On. Tuesday, he told reporters
that his trip will be an inspiration
for his southeast Asian nation as
well as to other Muslims all over
the world.

“It’s a small step for me, but a
great leap for the Malaysian peo-
ple,” he said, paraphrasing
Neil Armstrong’s famous words
after the Apollo landing on the
moon,

Crawford) led the deuce of clubs.

Declarer followed low from
dummy, losing to East’s king, where-
upon Crawford returned the king of
spades! This sensational play proved
to bea killer. Declarer now had to go
down one, losing three spade tricks, a
club and a diamond. At trick two,
Crawford had played the only card in
his hand that could defeat the con-
tract. Had he led any other spade,
declarer would have made four
notrump.

What inspired Crawford to play
the king of spades seemingly from
out of the blue? Actually, it was an
easy play; he had a sure thing going
for him regardless of who had the
queen of spades.

The clue that led to the spade
return came from both the bidding
and the opening lead. West’s deuce-

of-clubs lead, indicating a four-card

suit, marked declarer with three
clubs. Furthermore, systemically,
South’s bidding guaranteed five
hearts and four diamonds (or, possi-
bly, four hearts and five diamonds).
This left South with at most one
spade.

The king-of-spades return was
therefore sure to work out success-
fully regardless of South’s actual
spade holding. That his singleton

‘spade happened to be the queen

served merely to dramatize the cor-
rectness.of Crawford’s-play-

White mates in seven moves at
latest; against any defence (by
Karol Piltz). Seven moves? What
is this guy expecting of me?
Calm down, dear solver. Today's
puzzle is much easier than most
shorter problems, Look carefully
at the diagram, and you will
spot a peculiarity. Black has only -
one man, the a7 pawn, able to
make a legal move. Meanwhile,
White's f1 rook looks very
distant from Black's a8 king, but
an offbeat and comical tactical .
sequence secures the mate.
There is effectively just a single
line of play, as all Black’s side
variations lead to faster and -
obvious mates.

THURSDAY,

ARIES — Mar 21/Apr 20
Feeling fizzled out, Aries? It could
be because you pushed yourself too
hard partying in the last few weeks. ©
Take the early part of this year to sit
back and relax.

TAURUS — Apr 21/May 21
Something that seems insurmount-
able is actually much easier to
scale than you think, Taurus.
Think positively and you’ll reach
great heights.

GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21
Think before you speak when you’re
called to intervene in a situation,
Gemini. Though you can offer
words of wisdom, let the other par-
ties do the compromising.

CANCER -— Jun 22/Jul 22
There is success coming your way, you
just need to keep your eyes peeled in
anticipation, Cancer. However, there
are two sides to every coin, and this
good news also brings some bad.

LEO — Jul 23/Aug 23

You sometimes have to lose before
you can win, Leo, and this will
become apparent in the next few
days. Stay the course and you will
come out OK.
VIRGO = Aug 24/Sept 22

If you have all the. answers, Virgo,
why aren’t people constantly asking
your advice? Realize that you can
learn a thing or two from someone
else, especially this week.

LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23.

If you’re in the mood for romance,
Libra, then you'll be justly rewarded.
Now is the time to spend quality time
‘with that special person in your life
because soon you'll be busier than ever.
SCORPIO - Oct 24/Noy 22
Quiet comtemplation is the key this
week, Scorpio. Mull over all of
your problems and you’ll soon find
that you have the solutions right at
your fingertips.

SAGITTARIUS = Nov 23/Dec 21
Silence can be deafening, especially
when you’re awaiting an outcome to
a sticky situation, Sagittarius. All
you can do is-be patient and trust that
things will work out.

CAPRICORN — Dec 22/Jan 20
A financial folly leaves you coming up
short, Capricorn. It’s time -to buckle
down and stretch those dollars as far as
they can go. Otherwise, you could end
up ina pickle by mid year.

AQUARIUS — Jan 21/Feb 18

| Why wrestle with a concern alone
when you have loved ones you can
trust to assist you, Aquarius? Put
some of your worries in another per-
'son’s hands.

PISCES — Feb 19/Mar20

You will find hidden meanings in
the most mundane things, Pisces.
The trouble will be figuring out
what the big message is.

@ By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

TRADE unions and the
labour movement are seeking
clarifications to the Standard
Hours of Work section in the
Employment Act, a leading
unionist told The ‘Tribune yes-
terday, believing the way the
law is currently worded creates
a “misinterpretation” when it
comes to the hours worked by
managerial and supervisory statf
employed by Bahamian com-
panies.

Obie Ferguson, a labour
lawyer and the Trades Union
Congress (TUC) president, said
there were discrepancies
between Section 8, Part 2 and
Section 8, Subsection 4 of the
Employment Act that gave rise
to “misinterpretations” by
employers of how the Standard
Hours of Work applied to man-
agerial/supervisory employees.

- Unions seek Standard °
ork Hours reforms |

¢ Want Act clarified to state managers/supervisors have
40-hour week, and get ‘time off in lieu of pay’ for excess

° TUC president says lunch hout’s inclusion in 40 hours,
ability to file unfair dismissal action for termination related to
conduct and performance key reforms sought

e Wants employer definition clarified to aid legal actions
against major companies |



Mr Ferguson said Section 8,
Part 2 stated that no Bahamian
worker - whether a manager or
line worker - should work more
than 40 hours per week. Yet
Section 8, Subsection 4 was
being interpreted as,saying the
40-hour work week or Standard
Hours of Work “does not apply
to those who held superviso-

ry/managerial positions”.

Mr Ferguson added: “The
employers are suggesting that the
40 hours does not apply to man-
agerial workers. They have to
work as many hours as necessary.

“This is not what Part 2 or
Section 8 is saying. Every work-
er is required to work 40 hours,
and the Act was intended to

exempt managerial and super-
visory workers from overtime
and overtime pay.

“That was the intention, but —

some employers are reading it
as if it means the 40 hours do
not apply to managerial or
supervisory workers.

Tribunal needs ability

to enforce judgments

@ By NEIL HARTNELL

THE Industrial Tribunal
must be given the ability to
enforce its own judgments, a
trade union leader told The

Tribune yesterday,.as “it .
defeats the purpose” if workers:

have to go to the Supreme

_ Court to obtain the fruits of

verdicts they have won against
employers. ree

Obie Ferguson, the Trades
Union Congress (TUC) presi-
dent, said: “We would like for
the Industrial Tribunal to
enforce its own judgments.
That’s a very vexing area.

“Tf the. Tribunal makes a find-
ing and the employer refuses to
pay, the worker is stymied and

has to got to the Supreme Court
to enforce the judgment. That
defeats the purpose.”

Mr Ferguson said the Indus-
trial Tribunal should be a court
of finality, with the right for par-
ties to appeal its verdicts all the
way up the court structure.

Currently, if employers
refused to abide by the Indus-
trial Tribunal’s rulings, employ-

ees were faced with having to
file the same ‘court papers and

documents with the Supreme;
Court in a bid to have judg- :

ments enforced -.a process that
adds time and costs for workers.

“You have to go to the
Supreme Court to get the judge-

ment enforced, and to me it.

defeats the purpose,” Mr Fer-
guson added. amet fa

@ By NEIL HARTNELL :
Tribune Business Editor

THE Trade Commission’s
chairman said yesterday that it

was “hard to escape the con-:
_ clusion” that the Bahamas had

‘dropped the ball’ on the Eco-
nomic Partnership Agreement
(EPA) talks with the European
Union (EUV), adding that there

‘was too little time to prepare

the private sector’s position on
it with less-than three months
left before the treaty is due to
take effect,

John Delaney, the former
FNM Senator and Higgs &
Johnson managing partner, said
the Trade Commission’s “big

priority” and the “bigger pic-.

ture issue” was the Bahamas
move to accede to full mem-
bership in the World Trade
Organisation (WTO), although
the EPA was the trade issue
with “the shortest fuse”.

Mr Delaney said the WTO
was the “common denomina-
tor” that underpinned and over-
shadowed all trade agreements,
and he understood that the
Bahamas’ accession to full
membership in the body that
sets and administers the rules

- of global trade may happen

“within the next five years” -
before the FNM government’s
term in office ends.

When asked whether the
Trade Commission had enough
time between now and Decem-
ber 31, 2007,. when the EPA
between the EU and 77-mem-
ber African, Pacific and
Caribbean (ACP) group of
nations is supposed to take
effect, to prepare a position on
what the Bahamas should do
for the Government, Mr
Delaney replied: “I don’t see
how it can be said we have a
reasonable period of time
between now and the end of the
year.”

When asked whether the
Bahamas had ‘dropped the ball’

im
J

WTO accession
may happen
‘within next
five years’



PLO Rime retiieay

on the EPA negotiations and
done too little, too late to adopt
a position and prepare for it,
Mr Delaney said: “That con-
clusion is hard to escape.........

, “We are where we are, a cou-
ple of months from the target
date for signing. We have to
acknowledge that the EPA is
not something that has been
sprung on the Bahamas. It
would have been on our plate
for many years, but the Trade
Commission only now has to
look at it. 1 am advised that no
work has been done on this by

any previous Trade Commis--

sion.”

THE Bahamas Telecom-
munications Company (BTC)

‘is hoping to set up its second

full-service Cyber World store
in, the former Mike’s Shoe
Store outlet on Bay. Street by

targeting cruise passengers

*Marlon Johnson, BTC’s

Marathon, to serve Bahami-°
ans who worked and
shopped in downtown Nas-
sau.

He said: “We’re preparing
to establish a Cyber World -

BUSINESS

Going direct

I: you find that starting a
business from scratch is
too much for you, then direct
selling is a tried and tested way
to get into business. However,

- you will need to be cautious.
Just like buying a franchise, .

there are several steps you need

to consider to make this process.

as risk-free as possible.

Direct selling is where a man-
ufacturer cuts out the retailer
and sells direct to the customer
through independent sales peo-

ple. It is a business that suits |

motivated, outgoing people,
who enjoy selling and want to

-work from home full or part-

time. Many products are sold

' this way, such as cosmetics,

household products, clothing,
adult products, nutritional and
dietary products, often on a par-
ty plan basis. If you have a
good network of people that

you can sell to, this system may >

be suitable for you.

The level of support can also
be high, where your sales and
marketing materials, and sales
pitches, are prepared for you,
making it easier for you to start
selling straight away.

There are three methods of
direct selling that you need to
be aware of.

The first method is selling
door-to-door through cold call-
ing. This is where you trudge
the streets, knock on peoples'
doors, make a presentation and
try to get an order, or leave a
catalogue and come back later
to try and pick up a sale. People
are far less likely now to let you
into their homes.

The second method is
through direct selling to your
network of contacts, such as
friends, family, neighbours,
church groups, Parent-Teacher
Associations(PTAs), schools,
clubs. If you have a wide vari-

a

ety of contacts, then this may

be the way for you. Unlike cold
calling, you would work your
contact list, ask for referrals,
network, market yourself
through advertising and PR to
generate interested leads.

The third way of direct selling



Direct selling
is wherea |
manufacturer
cuts out the
retailer and sells

customer
through
independent
sales people.



is through the tried and tested
party plan method, which was
perfected by Tupperware and
Avon. You arrange a party and
demonstrate the goods in the
hope that people buy there and
then, or give you an order for
fulfillment. Again, this method
would suit you if you have a
wide network of contacts,



S o, what is the process for
becoming a direct sales-
person?

The first step is Choosing a
Product Line. Choose some-
thing that you would personally
use, as this should make it easi-
er to sell to others. Home prod-
ucts, jewellery and cosmetics
are usually a hit with others,
particularly if you can offer the
products at good prices and
people can choose them in the
comfort of your home.

The second step is Doing
Some Research. Research the
various companies that sell the
products you are interested in.
Try the Internet or specialist
publications that offer business
opportunities. Check the
forums. The Internet is a good
place where people post their
review on companies and prod-
uct lines. Request their infor-
mation packs, read the sales lit-
erature carefully and prepare a
shortlist.

The third step is Comparing

the Shortlisted Companies. The
questions you will need to ask
yourself at this stage are: How
long has the company been in
business for? What independent
reviews are there on the com-
pany, its products and its work-
ing practices? Is it a product
that you would use yourself?

ahamian title
insurance agency
to give protection

that a title search failed to reveal.

First Bahamas’ administra-
tive officer, Naurel E Watkins,
said the most common faults
overlooked by a title search
include mistakes in the record-
ing of legal documents, forged
documents and undisclosed
heirs with interest in the prop-
erty.

“Title insurance is the next
step in the evolutionary process
of land title assurance,” she
said, “and an added line of
defence against any challenge
to an individual’s interest in his
or her property. We are excited
to be able to provide this qual-
ity service to our clients though
our affiliation with Lawyers
Title, whose reputation for
financial strength and an ability
to deliver smooth and timely
closings is renowned.”

First Bahamas identifies and
eliminates risks that could
endanger an individual’s right
to ownership. Unlike general,
health or life insurance policies,
which require monthly premi-
ums, title insurance generates
a one-time premium, after
which the insurer assumes com-
plete financial responsibility for
the defence of title defects
raised against the insured’s
property.

First Bahamas will offer own-
er’s policies, which endure for as
long as an individual or his or
her heirs have an interest in the
property.

It will also offer policies for
lenders that indemnify in the
event that the title defect
impacts the lender’s ability to
enforce its default remedies on
a property.

| a
Freeport can be land

reform ‘guinea pig’

Mi By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

FREEPORT could be “used
as a guinea pig” if the Bahamas
moves to a Title Registration
System or parcel-based land

recording system, an attorney -

has Suggested, hitting out at the
smany layers of unnecessary,
repetitive regulations” that
hamper Bahamian-based real
estate transactions.

Fred Smith, a Freeport-based

partner in Callenders & Co, said

the fact that every single par-.

~~ cel of land within the 230 square
mile Grand Bahama Port

Authority (GB PA) area had .

_been surveyed and mapped
made the city an ideal testing
ground if the Government fol-
lowed consultants’ recommen-
dations to alter the land title
deeds recording and registra-
tion system.

Saying he had been practicing
conveyancing and ntortgage law

in Freeport for 30 years, Mr .

Smith said of the reforms pro-
posed by consultants Interna-
tional Land Systems (ILS): “I
am in complete agreement with
the proposal to convert to a
Title Registration system as
opposed to the archaic, feudal
conveyancing we now endure.

“Freeport stands in a unique
position to the rest of the
Bahamas. Everything stems
from 1955. We stand uniquely
poised to adopt and effect a par-
cel-based land registration sys-
tem.”

Mr Smith said that post-1955
and the Hawksbill Creek
Agreement, “every single parcel
of land in the Port area” was
surveyed and now lies in the
databases of the Grand Bahama
Port Authority (GBPA), Grand
Bahama Development Compa-
ny (Devco) and development
companies such as Grand
Bahamian Hills, Yorkshire
Development. Company,
Tamarind and Princess Realty.

As a result, it would be rela-
tively simple to introduce a par-
cel-based land registration and
indexing system in Freeport, as
the surveying and mapping had
already been done.

Weaknesses in the land
deeds recording system are
costing the private sector $230
million per year, ILS consul-
tants have estimated, prompt-
ing recommendations that the
Bahamas move to comprehen-
sively reform the Registry by
either introducing a Parcel-
based Index system or Title
Registration system.

Mr Smith told The Tribune
that real estate transactions in
the Bahamas often “took
months” to close, due to title
issues coupled with govern-

ment red tape and bureaucra-

cy. :

He added: “There are so
many layers of unnecessary,
- repetitive regulatory
approvals.” With most real
estate transactions in Freeport
involving a foreign purchaser
or seller, among the required
approvals were exchange con-
trol permission from the Cen-
tral Bank of the Bahamas; the

Investments Board (Cabinet) |

call 35¢





Fred Smith

Certificate of Registration for
foreign buyers; and meeting
the Know Your Customer
(KYC) provisions of the Finan-
cial Transactions Reporting

Act (FTRA).

In addition, Mr Smith said
that builders and investors in
Freeport “have to get approval

from the Port Authority to

transfer approved premises.
from their Port Authority
licence”.

On the title side, Mr Smith
said many title search compa-
nies were “absolving them-
selves of all liability” for rec-
ommendations based on
records and deeds lodged with
the public land registry at the
Registrar General’s Depart-
ment. This was because “some-
times the files in which title is
held cannot be found”.

Based on the ILS recom-
mendations, Mr Smith said:
“The opportunity exists for
efficiency and speed in con-
veyancing transactions. Cur-
rently, real estate agents are
starving because it takes six
months for transactions to
close, transaction lawyers are
delayed in getting their fees
and, most importantly, buyers
and sellers are frustrated.

“I would recommend to the
Government that the Land
Reform Commission be insti-
tuted with the task of working
towards developing a more
efficient system and Freeport

could be used as a guinea pig.”

Outlining the reform options
available for the Bahamas, ILS
said one was to "do nothing",
apart from "maybe cleaning
up the statutory language"
used in title and conveyancing
documents to make them more
easily understood by ordinary
Bahamians. .

Among the advantages of
this approach, he explained,
was that the well-known pre-
sent system, with its under-

stood responsibilities and lia- -

bilities, would be maintained.



The Bahamas would also
avoid the need for any legisla-
tive changes. Yet maintaining
the status quo where the deeds
recording system was con-
cerned, ILS said, would con-
tinue to cost the Bahamian pri-

‘vate sector - attorneys who

specialize in conveyancing, plus
realtors, title searchers and
their clients - some $230 mil-
lion per year.

. Even if the Bahamas kept
the present deeds recording
system, ILS suggested that it
should at least move away
from a process that, in the first
instance, used name indexing
and the names of persons
involved in real estate trans-
actions to find the relevant
documents: The existing
process also uses dates, and the
chronological order in which
deeds were filed, to help title
searchers and attorneys find
documents.

ILS said that instead, one
option open to the Bahamas
was to move toa land parcels
indexing system, with the third
and final option being for the
Bahamas to adopt wholesale
reform by scrapping the deeds
recording system and switch-
ing to a Title Registration Sys-
tem.

This would ultimately
involve bona fide Bahamian
property and title owners being
issued with a Certificate of
Title that disclosed and con-
tained all information on their
property, including encum-
brances such as mortgages and
easements.

The advantage of such a sys-
tem was that it provided more
certainty for property owners
and title holders than the pre-
sent system, increasing securi-
ty of tenure.

The downside, though, was
that it would require changes
in Bahamian statutory law and
be far more expensive for the
Government to operate and
maintain.

. THE total number, of mort-
gages issued in the Bahamas
slowed by 5.8 per cent, narrowing
to $127.8 millicn during the 2007
second quarter as economic
growth slowed compared to last
year, the Central Bank of the
Bahamas revealed yesterday.

According to its review of
domestic economic developments
for the 2007 second quarter of
the year, both commercial and
residential mortgages issued dur-
ing the period declined by LO per
cent and 5 per cent.

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 11, 2007, PAGE 9B

Mortgages issued

% decline

The number of mortgage com-
mitments for new construction
and repairs fell by 29.9 per cent to
260, and the corresponding val-
ue by 34.2 per cent to $34 mil-
lion. Growth in outstanding mort-
gages declined, slackening to 12.5
per cent from 17 per cent.

The Central Bank said the
Bahamian economy “expanded
at a more moderate pace” when
compared to 2006, due largely to
a weakened tourism performance
affected by the Western Travel
Hemisphere Initiative (WHTI).
Figures showed that total visitor
arrivals declined by 12.1 per cent
to 1.15 million, with both air and

sea visitors falling by 8.8 per cent
and 13.8 per cent at 0.41 million
and 0.74 million respectively.
The decline was mainly attrib-
uted to a cruise decline of 15.6 per
cent in Grand Bahama, while New
Providence was off by 7.6 and the
Family Islands by 19.3 per cent.
The hotel sector was able to
benefit from a 6.6 per cent appre-
ciation in hotel revenues to $118.6

‘million, due to a 12.6 per cent

hike in average room rates,
which offset the 5.3 per cent
downturn in rooms sold. The out-
run reflected improvements in the
New Providence market, where
overall room revenues expanded
by 8.5 per cent in contrast to
declines in revenues for Grand
Bahama by 1.1 per cent, and the
Family Islands by 2.1 per cent.

The economy was also impact-
ed by reduced growth in con-
sumer demand and tempered for-
eign investment flows.

External current account devel-
opments indicated a marginally
lower deficit, benefiting from a
reduction in the merchandise
trade deficit, and an improved sur-
plus on the services account. How-
ever, the Central Bank said lower
foreign investment-related inflows
led to a narrowing of the capital
and financial account surplus.

Central Bank statistics indicat-.
ed that quarterly consumer price
inflation, as measured by changes
in the average retail price index,
advanced to 2.2 per cent from 1.7 _
per cent in the previous year. The
largest cost increases were regis-
tered for furniture and house-
hold operations, 5.3 per cent,
food and beverages, 4.15 per cent
sand transport and communica-
tion, 3.2 per cent.

There was also an increase in
average consumer prices, which
firmed by 0.8 per cent to 2:4 per
cent over the previous year,
reflecting the continuing effects of
higher global fuel and commodity
prices.

The capital and financial
account surplus contracted by an
estimated $36.8 million to $98
million, due partly to a slowdown
in net direct investment inflows
by $8.9 million to $91.7 million.

‘Additionally, other net invest-

ments receipts weakened to $26.3
million from $61 million last year.

THE TRIBUNE





Trade unions seeking Work

FROM page one

“We're going to be seeking
some clarification to that. That’s
very important. We cannot pass
laws that are discriminatory in
nature.”

Mr Ferguson said the Fair
Labour Standards Act, which
was replaced by the Employ-
ment Act, made no distinction
between managerial workers
and line workers when it came
to the Standard Hours or Work,
all allowed to work a maximum
number of hours per week.

The TUC president agreed
that managerial workers should
not receive overtime pay, but
those who “worked in excess of
40 hours per week should be

given time off in lieu of pay”.
“The Standard Hours of
Work must be applied to all
workers, whether they are man-
agers, supervisors or line work-
ers,” Mr Ferguson added.
“The way it was drafted does
leave room for misunderstand-
ing, and that’s one of the rec-
ommendations we certainly are
going to be pursuing.”
Employer and trade unions
recommendations for reform-
ing and amending the Employ-
ment Act are due to be dis-
cussed: at an upcoming October
22 TriFor conference with the
Government.
Mr Ferguson said the trade
unions and labour movement

also wanted to grounds on

Legal Notice

which a worker could bring a

lawsuit for unfair dismissal
broadened in similar fashion to
the UK, and extended beyond
trade union activities, materni-
ty and redundancy.

“If you’re terminated for oth-
er reasons, you cannot bring an
action for unfair dismissal. That
cannot be right,” Mr Ferguson
added. “If you’re terminated for
conduct and performance on
the job, or whatever else, you
should be able to bring an
action for unfair. dismissal.

“Most dismissals concern
matters of performance and
conduct.: These are the major
issues that should be part of the
unfair dismissal provision, and
we would want that to be
looked at.”

The unions are also seeking
to reopen and revisit the issue
of lunch hours and lunch pay,
arguing that a worker’s lunch

hour was included in the eight-
hour working day. However,
some employers were treating
the lunch hour as being exclud-
ed from the eight hours or
work, something Mr Ferguson
said went against the intent of
the Employment Act.

“A substantial number of
employers are practicing as if it
is eight hours of actual work,
excluding lunch. So it is a 45-
hour day, not 40 hours, and that
causes problems for those work-
ers who cannot leave their
employer’s premises,” Mr Fer-
guson said. “That is an area we
have had some difficulty with.”

The TUC president added
that the combined trade union
movement would also press for
a much stricter definition of the
term ‘employer’ in the Employ-
ment Act, believing “the defin-
ition should be so structured
that the employee always knows

who the employer is”.
Mr Ferguson explained they

were seeking this because of

past problems encountered
when workers brought cases
against resorts and multina-
tional companies operating in
the Bahamas, who operated
through complex corporate and
. holding structures involving a
variety of companies. With
major resort developments,
developers often form separate
companies to hold or own dif-
terent parts of the project, such
as the marina, golf course and
hotel.

Mr Ferguson said that while

an industrial dispute was filed it
was often found that he was

ent company

(his created a “serious prob-
lem” if the case ever went to
court, Mr Ferguson added, as
many employees were unaware
of the “intricacies” of their
employer's corporate structure.

If the case was filed against
the wrong company, an entity
not employing the worker, Mr
Ferguson said the employer’s
attorney could make a legiti-
mate legal point that the action
was against the wrong firm and
should be thrown out.

Mr Ferguson added that the
trade unions aiso wanted the

The area where the
BTC flagship outlet is
being located, east of the
Bay Street/East Street

as being something of a
deprived, rundown com-
mercial and retail area out
of which many. businesses
have moved or closed
down. Currently, the main
Bay Street retailing land-

mark east of that road_

junction is Hoffer Sport.
Yet the arrival of the

accounted for.

The EPA also deals with
issues such as subsidies, anti-
dumping, rules of origin and
countervailing duties. Signing
on could impact the National

EU. They would like to see
some kind of arrangement

The fisheries industry is
concerned that $60 million
worth of exports to the EU,
chiefly France, could be jeop-
ardised by the loss of duty-
free access that could result
from failing to sign on to the
EPA. This could result in
their products being exposed
to the ‘Most Favoured
Nation’ tariffs, making craw-
fish and other Bahamian
seafood exports uncompeti-
tive on price.

the EPA had not been dis-

before the Trade Commission
could provide a position on it
for government policymakers,
its members first needed to
understand what the EPA
involved themselves.

Priority

With the WTO underpin-
ning and driving the EPA,
forcing its birth to replace
Cotonou, Mr Delaney said:
“The big priority for us are
matters relating to the WTO
in a big sense. It is pretty much
the trading regime through-
out the world. The Bahamas is
part of it, but a policy deci-
sion has already been made
that it is in the interests of the

Bahamas to join the WTO.
We have to come to grips with
that.”

Mr Delaney said _ the
Bahamas had been working
on the WTO accession process
for more than five years, since
the latter part of the first
Ingraham administration.

“IT am almost made to
understand that some time
within the next five years, all
the work may be done and
accession may take place,” Mr
Delaney added.

“The WTO regime is a com;

-mon denominator across the

world. From the big picture
perspective, the WTO is the
most important from the basic
point of view of understanding
the global landscape.”

Stocks trade is mixed
and Boeing hurt Dow

@ By TIM PARADIS
AP Business Writer

NEW YORK — Wall Street
stumbled through a lopsided
session Wednesday, closing
mixed as profit warnings and
news from blue chip names
Alcoa Inc. and Boeing Co.
dragged down the Dow Jones
industrial average but largely
spared technology stocks.

A pullback was to be expect-
ed after the Dow and the Stan-
dard & Poor’s 500 index: fin-
ished at new highs Tuesday
amid enthusiasm over com-
ments from Federal Reserve
policymakers about interest
rates, but corporate news
appeared to hasten Wednes-
day’s slide.

Declines by Dow components

Boeing and Alcoa, among oth-
ers, hurt the 30-stock index.
Meanwhile, International Paper
Co. and Chevron Corp. moved
lower on profit news.

With investors thumbing
through fresh quarterly results
and company news, the latest
economic readings did little to
dislodge the dichotomy between
blue chips and tech stocks. A
report showed inventories
among U.S. wholesalers ticked
up in August, while a trade
group for real estate agents
warned the drop in sales of
existing homes this year will be
steeper than had been expected.

The stock market’s uneven
but still relatively calm trading
Wednesday followed the surge
the day before that was sparked

the Fed’s last meeting. Wall
Street initially was ebullient that
the Fed didn’t appear to rule
out further rate cuts but, on
reflection, some investors
seemed to be questioning
whether that response was a lit-
tle too optimistic.

“People are looking back-

THE PRIME Minister yes-
terday tabled in the House of

' Assembly a list of temporary

contracts issued by the former
PLP government, which reveals
that more than 60 persons were
hired before the election below
the minimum wage for govern-
ment workers, on short term
contracts.

Mr Ingraham tabled the doc-
ument of Family Island con-
tracts in response to a claim by
MICAL MP Alfred Gray that

the FNM government vic-

timised Nadine Ingraham, caus-
ing her termination from a jan-
itorial post at the All Age
School in Inagua.

This information set off a
heated exchange between the
Prime Minister and Mr Gray in

Ministry yet to receive ‘official sanz

@ By TANEKA THOMPSON

ALTHOUGH the media has
received a written request from
alleged “drug kingpin” Samuel
‘90’ Knowles appealing to the

government for a review of his’

extradition case, the Ministry of
Foreign Affairs has yet to
receive an “official” application
for review, officials said yester-
day. :

As reported this week, the

"alleged drug trafficker forward-

ed a letter to the media earlier

in the week, detailing what he |

called a violation of his consti-
tutional rights every day he is
allowed to remain in a US
prison. Knowles also claimed
the former administration was
duped by US authorities during
his extradition and called for a
review of his, case by the gov-
ernment.

Yesterday Deputy Prime.

Minister and Minister of For-
eign Affairs Brent Symonette

weighed in on the much debat- |

ed issue of the extradition of
Knowles to the United States

stemming from an indictment

Mr Symonette told The Tri-

bune during an interview that :
while he has seen a copy of the :
letter written-by Knowles, his ;
office has not réceived a formal :

application on the matter.

Some constituents on
Maynard-Gibson’s
election court petition
seeking legal advice

@ By PAUL
TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter
pturnquest@tribunemedia-net

AT LEAST 10 constituents
whose names have appeared
on the election court petition
filed by PLP Senator Allyson
Maynard-Gibson are now
seeking legal advice about
what recourse they might
have against Mrs Maynard-
Gibson, FNM chairman John-
ley Ferguson confirmed yes-
terday. — >

Mr Ferguson said that these
residents, with whom he has
personally spoken, are deeply

'» offended that Mrs Maynard-

Gibson has published their
names. Mr Ferguson said that
in doing so, the PLP chal-
lenger is not only possibly
calling into. question these
persons’ nationality, but it
might be interpreted as an
assault on their individual
character.

“They are seeking legal
advice as to what they can in
relation to what she has

:_.done,” Mr Ferguson said.

“J have spoken to more
than 10 persons whose names
have appeared on that list,
who are very concerned that
their character is being tam-

i pered with, so to speak. And

they are concerned that she
went ahead and put their
names there, and they are
seeking some legal advice as
to what they can do to have
her retract them.

“Because they live in
Kennedy Subdivision, in

P Pinewood, they are resident

there, and they have lived
there for many, many years.
So for her to throw their
name about there like that,
they are very, very con-
cerned,” he said.

Activist calls for
ban on sodomy

»» SODOMY should be made
‘illegal in the Bahamas according
; to Clever Duncombe.
t . Mr Duncome touched on this
,.and many other issues when he
‘appeared on the GEMs radio
, show “The Way Forward” yes:
“ terday.
: He called for more legal pro-
“tection for fathers and claimed
‘ that Bahamian mothers have a
‘disproportionate number of
“rights with regard to children
‘born out of wedlock.
‘Mr Duncombe, the leader of
“the activist group Bahamian
‘Fathers for Children Every-
«where, was accompanied by fel-
‘low activist Diamond Harrison.
» In recent weeks, Mr Dun-
-combe has argued for the gov-
‘ernment to hold a referendum
"to determine whether the gay
‘lifestyle should be made illegal.
‘. Yesterday, he said the
‘Bahamian public should specif-
ically decide if sodomy in a pri-
‘vate setting is to remain a legal
vact.
\ He argued that if sodomy and
",subsequently the homosexual
“lifestyle were made illegal, there
«would be no need for the Chris-
“tian Council to organise protests
‘against movies like Brokeback

Mountain, gay cruises, or calls
for a gay television channel.

“I’m here to outlaw it ,.. any
policy that I find to be promot-
ing this (gay) agenda, I will kill
it before it grow,” Mr Dun-
combe said, stressing that he is a
proponent of changing the situ-
ation through legislation, not
violence.

The Sexual Offences Act,
which made sodomy between
two men illegal, was repealed
in 1991, Mr Duncombe and his
organisation are seeking to have
that decision reversed.

Mr Duncombe claimed that
the 1991 change was made by

THE TRIBUNE

“stealth” as Bahamians were
not allowed to weigh in before
the law was changed. He assert-
ed that if asked, the majority of
Bahamians would support the
re-imposition of the Act. it

“There were many persons
before Cleaver Duncombe. .\,
who were addressing the issue’,
.. but the distinct difference

between Cleaver Duncombe

and.the rest of them, is that they
were gay bashing. I run a dif-
ferent campaign, I am not bash-
ing on lesbians or gays, what 'I
am addressing here . . . is the
legislation,” Mr Duncombe salg
yesterday.

He added that his organisa-
tion had made an express
request to the Christian Council
for their support in addressing
the sodomy law, but has not
received any response. i

Mr Harrison stated that a
return to “righteousness” would
help the nation rid itself of the
social ills, which come about as
the country becomes more
exposed to alternative lifestyles
through television and the
media. i

“Tf its only me and Mr Dunit
combe prepared to fight this
(war) we will do it,” he said. ©

‘Parents urged to check children’s sight

. By ALISON LOWE
’ Tribune Staff Reporter
alowe@tribunemedia.net

». IN recognition of World Sight

Day today, the Bahamas
- Alliance for the Blind and Visu-

» ally Impaired has urged parents
to realise that their children
“might, have sight problems and
‘to take appropriate action,

'. According to Desmond
“Brown, president of the BABVI,

_ “sometimes we fail to realise

“recognise the fact that children
are having sight problems ~ they

‘go to school and they are not

Jearning properly (and) we do
not attribute that to the fact that
ythey aren’t seeing properly.”

. He said this can cause the

children to endure unnecessary
hardship.

Mr Brown said that World
Sight Day should be a day to
recognise the “worldwide prob-
lem of avoidable blindness” in
particular, as well as the issues
and problems that exist for
blind and visually impaired peo-
ple in general.

The president said that while
millions of people suffer from

blindness “they wouldn’t have

to go blind if the proper pre-
cautions and medication were
given.”

In light of this year’s theme,

“Blindness and childhood”, Mr

Brown appealed to parents,
guardians and.teachers “to look...

and to.realise. and recognise

15” LCD

when their children might be
experiencing sight problems and
to take appropriate action by
having your child get help.” —

Mr Brown said that in the
Bahamian context, something
that must also be addressed is
the fact that some families will
“hide away” their blind children
and relatives,

“To parents whose children
might be blind or have an
impairment, look upon those
children as human beings,” he
said. “Take them out, let them
be exposed to the world and
their surroundings.

“They are persons, who with

the right training and opportu;...;
nities, can:achieve their - goaly

in life,” he said.

Petitions being
raised for release
of prisoner featured
in The Tribune

TWO petitions are being
raised to call for the release.
of Trent Albury, the 33-year-
old Abaconian whose plight
in Fox Hill Prison was high-
lighted in Monday’s Tribune.

Supporters in Abaco and
Grand Bahama will urge the
government to halt extradi-
tion proceedings against Mr
Albury and free him from jail
immediately,

Mr Albury is said by
friends and family to be on

- the brink of suicide after

being arrested and jailed i1
months ago pending extradi-
tion proceedings by the US
government.

US authorities want Mr
Albury to be returned to
Florida, where he was being
held under house arrest for
alleged manslaughter follow-
ing a road accident in which a
woman died.

His lawyer, Murrio Ducille,
has argued in court that the
case is not extraditable and
that his client deserves bail.

Family friend Jeanne
Kemp told The Tribune last
night chat Abaco and Grand
Bahama supporters were rais-
ing petitions calling on the

. government to step in.

_ outside parliament if this
' matter is not-resolved,”

said
*.'5‘Kemp: who visits Mr
Albury weekly with hot food.

TV PERSONALITY Rita
Cosby last night lashed out at
local activist Lincoln Bain, claim-
ing he was now trying to change
his views on the Anna Nicole
Smith affair, even though they
had already been recorded on
his own website.

Ms Cosby said Mr Bain, in
referring to her new bddk about
Anna Nicole, had claimed on his
website to “know already” what
she was alleging about
Howard K Stern and Larry Birk-

head in the book, Blonde Ambi-. .

tion.

And he had cited two Haitian
maids who worked for Anna
Nicole as having confirmed the
claims made in her book, she said.

“Tt’s all there on his Mr Con-
troversy website,” said Ms Cosby.
“Now he’s trying to say some-
thing different.”

An angry Ms Cosby’s com-
ments came after a weekend bust-
up with Mr Bain in which she
claimed she was “set up” and
asked for money by the two
Haitians.

Mr Bain, in turn, is now threat-
ening to place video footage on
his website showing the full extent
of what he calls a “sting” opera-
tion aimed at catching Ms Cosby
offering deals to the maids.

Last night, Ms Cosby told The
Tribune that she was “very dis-
appointed” at what happened in
Nassau, adding: “I had come to
the Bahamas looking for the
truth.”

Her best-selling book, which
purports:to tell the truth about
Stern’s friendship with Birkhead,
is now the subject of a US lawsuit.

Stern is claiming $60 million in
damages, alleging that Ms Cosby
had made several untrue state-
ments about him and Birxhead.
Birkhead is also threatening to
sue. _

Last night, however, Ms Cosby

‘ stood firmly behind the book, say-

ing her information had come

from several sources and not the
Haitian nannies.

“T feel extremely confident that
we have the facts, and am very
confident in my sources, which
have not changed,” she added.

“We have even had more cor-
roboration since the book was
published. But it makes me won-
der what happened to those peo-
ple in Nassau.

“Is someone paying them to
change their story?” :







Ms Cosby said she had noth-
ing to fear from what she termed
Stern’s “frivolous” lawsuit. “Iam
even more sure today than I ever
was. I stand by my story 100 per
cent.”

Ms Cosby said she was dis-
turbed, on arriving in Nassau, to
be asked for payment.

“T don’t pay for stories,”
said.

Mr Bain couldn’t be reached
for comment.

Ingraham was being deployed to the school on
a short term basis as a janitress— March to
June, 2007. On June 30, the date her letter
said her employment ended, the Prime Min-
ister said he was “advised that Mrs Ingraham
left her job site voluntarily and has not
returned.”

Obviously Mrs Ingraham read her letter,
understood the game plan — it was election
time after all — packed her bag and left with-

gut an argument on June 30 when her letter
_ said her job had ended. You see, she didn’t

know what Mr Gray now says- he had in his
mind. Nor did anyone else.

But as the PLP has acknowledged in vari-
ous statements made since the election, these
persons were hurriedly hired in positions that
had been left vacant for a period of time and
needed to be filled. It has been admitted that

- they were short-term jobs.

Members of the House burst into laughter
when Mr Ingraham in his Communication to
the House reported that 27 of the 59 general
service workers sent on short term contracts
to MICAL were assigned to the Administra-
tor’s office in Mathew Town, Inagua. One
had visions of 27 Bahamians huddled in the
Administrator’s small office. Mr Gray shout-
ed back that they were not assigned to the
Administrator for his office, but were to be
deployed by him to other areas of MICAL to
do weeding, painting or whatever job could be

found for them. Obviously, there is only so”

much that a person can weed and only so

» many posts they can paint. So obviously, these

were very short, part-time prospects.
Everything was so hurried — after all
remember elections were only around the
corner and these people had to vote — that
two persons were sent to the Administrator at
Nicholls’s Town, Andros, to report for three
months of work at the Cabbage Hill Primary
School. There was only one difficulty. They
were in Andros and their job was at a school
in the Acklins/Crooked Island constituency.
It was obvious that there was not enough
money to go around. The monthly minimum
wage. paid by the Public Service is $890.
These poor souls, hired during an election
period, were paid between $700 and $800 a
month, with one of them, right at the bottom

' of the totem poll, taking home $150 a month.

We don’t understand why Mr Gray is
putting up such a fuss. With all the evidence
out there it is difficult — if not impossible —
to-accept his story. He would be wise to
change the subject and find another political
bone to chew on.



















EDITOR, The Tribune.

PLEASE allow us valuable
space in your newspaper to follow
through on a letter published sev-
eral weeks ago about littering on
our precious.islands. I have writ-
ten also about the litter scattered
on our roadsides for all of us to
bear but the letter did not make
press,

I try again after watching this
afternoon the total disregard by
several ‘youths’ riding in the back
of a white Nissan truck and
throwing their trash out on to the
road after a visit to the beach in
Coral Harbour. Their total disre-
gard of our surroundings caused
me to honk the horn in distaste,
the truck slowed to near stop and
I decided to pass and ask ‘why’.
Verbal abuse and angry, obscene
gestures was all I was going to
receive. Their attitude plainly
very hostile as I left them behind
me.

This prompted — several
thoughts. Firstly about articles
read in your paper about street
cleaners being let go from their
jobs and think how it may be time
instead that we say a ‘big thank
you’ to what must be a thankless
job. Our road to the airport from
Coral Harbour has been reli-
giously cleaned during the last
government by a crew, that we
as residents, truly appreciate.

The street cleaners are a very
valuable asset for every day dri-
vers continue to throw garbage
out of their vehicles, Mostly fast
food clientele.

The cleaners have noticeably
been absent and the trash now
mounts daily.

I ask again that all the ‘fast
food’ merchants start a campaign
in their establishments asking
clients NOT to throw their waste
onto our roadways.

The other thought coming to
mind is the beaches. these delin-
quents frequent in Coral Harbout
on the weekends are private
properties, not the ‘Public Beach’
that is usually used and also
trashed every week.

Some are fenced but the ones
that are open (closer to the
Defence Force) seem to be fair
game for all to use and abuse.
Can we please have some author-
ities present on the weekends to
police these properties to where
they are not trespassed and
trashed for the rest of us to live
with.

We can now see why the new
developers of the south western
part of the island (South Ocean
and Albany House) may have
thought how to protect their
investment and somehow dis-

courage ‘locals’ from having -

access to the beaches!

They know. all too well this
very small slice of our society will
completely ruin the surroundings

ries. Maybe on the weekends,
when this problem is at it highest,
they could at least lend a hand
patrolling some of the public
beaches and private properties
that are being invaded.

A re-instatement of the Beach
Patrols of past eras? Our sur-

those who visit our fair shores
and those of us who are fortu-
nate to call it home, it is time to
rattle the cages of those who
abuse them. Those with that mil-
itant Attitude and arrogant disre-
vard need to be held accountable.

Updating the Littering Laws
with heavy fines and prosecution
of trespassers might take that
smile off their faces and teach
them some regard for the
Bahamian majority who really
care about our islands?

a nation’ in 20 years

Retired teacher speaks out

HAITIAN immigrants could
within 20 years form “a nation
within a nation” in the Bahamas,
destabilising the country with a
second wave of colonisation.

This view came yesterday from
retired teacher Jeffrey Davis, an
author who has studied the Hait-
ian diaspora over many years,

Mr Davis, who wrote the book
Flight from the Third World in
the early 1990s, spoke out in
response to Freeport'lawyer Fred
Smith’s claim that Bahamians
treat Haitians like dogs.

“He is going to lose his credi-
bility making crass statements
like that,” he said. “How do
Haitians treat us? They have
broken our laws with impunity.
Mr Smith must realise that
Haitians in Haiti treat Haitians
like dogs, too.”

Mr Davis said there was a real
danger of the Bahamas being
infiltrated to such an extent by
another culture that within 20
years there could be “a Haitian
nation and Bahamian nation in
the heart of the Bahamas,”

He felt that Haitians were

intent on recolonising the.

Bahamas to escape their own
ravaged homeland.

“They have been independent
since 1804 and should be show-

ing the rest of us the way,” he

added. “But they have had 40
coups in the history, of their
nation.”

Mr Davis said for every 100
illegal Haitian immigrants sent
back to Haiti, 300 were coming
in to join the “bottom tier” of
the economy.

This process could go on
unchecked until it reached a

point where an alien culture .

could achieve “power and per-

manence” in this country,

He said “a more ardent, force-
ful and organised” campaign was
needed to repatriate Haitians in
a human manner.

Unless this was done, there
would soon be two nations in the
“womb” of the Bahamas.

Stressing that he had nothing
against Haitians as individuals,
Mr Davis advised immigrants:
“If you come here, come legally
and get yourself regularised. As
things stand, this is an invasion of
the Bahamas.”

He said locals resented hav-
ing ‘to live by the law when

Haitians clearly felt under no
such obligation. “While I pay
BEC, they use a drop-cord,” he
said.

Mr Smith’s reference. to
Haitians being treated like dogs
came during an attack on the
anti-gay campaign. He ques-
tioned the Bahamas’ claim to be
a Christian nation, citing treat-
ment of Haitians as one of sev-
eral forms of discrimination in
this country.

gal immigration on crime.

Police find hiding
Haitian women

waiting for boat —

SIX Haitian women, waiting for a boat to take them to Mia-
mi, were found by police hiding in an apartment in Bimini.
They were flown to the Detention Centre in Nassau.

Shortly after 3pm Monday, Police and Immigration officers
on duty at the South Bimini International Airport, received
information that a group of suspicious persons were hiding in an
apartment building on that island.

The officers went to the apartment, located on Morgan's
Drive, where they discovered six Haitian women, ranging in age
from 16 to 47 years, none ef whom had documents authorising

them to be in the Bahamas.

A male, who is also believed to be an illegal Haitian immi-
grant, fled from the building as the officers entered.

He escaped into the thick bushes.

Up to press time, he had not been located.

The six women, who told officers that they were awaiting the

catrival of a boat to take them to Miami, were ferried across to

North Bimini and detained at the Alice Town Police Station for

processing.

They were then flown to
New Providence around 3pm
Tuesday and taken to the
Carmichael Road Detention
Centre to await repatriation,
said Chief Supt. Basil V Rah-
ming. of Freeport. >

THE TRIBUNE



eae
More land survey
experts are needed

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

FREEPORT -— There is a
“dire need” for more experts to
conduct proper land surveys in
the Bahamas.

Lands and Surveys director
Tex Turnquest said this poses
an enormous challenge to the
government, which is in the
process of surveying thousands
of acres of Crown Land.

“There are very few land sur-
veyors that exist in the Bahamas
and if the numbers are not
there, we would have to go out-
side the country to get the
resources that are vitally need-
ed,” he said.

Mr Turnquest said the gov-

ernment has embarked on two .
separate projects — the Land »

Use Policy and Administration
Project (LUPAP) and the
Crown Land Management Sys-
tem (CLMS).

LUPAP seeks to identify
every parcel of land in New
Providence and Grand Bahama.
CLMS will create a digital
record of all Crown Land in the
country.

Experts from International
Lands Systems (ILS) are assist-
ing the Lands and Surveys
Department with the develop-

SY oan



ment of CLMS.

Minister of Lands and Local

Government Sidney Collie
added that the government,
through a joint venture with
IDB, contracted ILS experts for
$3. million to conduct a Land
Use Policy Administration Pro-
ject and Parcel Information
Management System (PIMS).
Mr Turnquest said the sys-
tems will significantly improve
efficiency in terms of Crown
Land grants, land registration,
and other property-related mat-
ters. ;
However, the director
stressed that there is a great

demand for trained, technically-
skilled rersons at his depart-
ment.

“There is a dire need for
skilled resources — for people -
to study the technical aspects
involving land surveying, estate
management, and forestry.” He
said it is important for young
people to consider careers in
these fields.

“If we begin to employ peo-

ple from elsewhere to do these
jobs, Bahamians will be the first
to have a problem with it. We
need to get serious about land
surveying and training persons
in those areas because the sys-
tein cannot operate unless the
land is surveyed properly,” he
said.
Mr Collie added: “The direc-
tor has sent out a call for young
Bahamians who do not see the
wisdom of getting in this busi-
ness. But I-can tell you it’s not
all real estate agents and
lawyers who do property/land
transactions. There is a lot of
opportunity for young Bahami-
ans who want to get into the
technical aspect of Lands and
Surveys.”

Because the research is
incomplete, Mr Turnquest said,
it is difficult to say how many

- acres of Crown Land there are

in Grand Bahama.

POLICE suspect that three
robberiesa t diffrent homes yes-
terday morning are connected.

Police press liaison officer
Inspector Walter Evans issued a
warning to members of the pub-
lic to pay careful attention to
their surroundings at all times.

The armed robberies all took
place in eastern New Provi-
dence.

The first incident took place
at around 12.45am, when a man
who just arrived home from
work was approached by two
men. armed with a shotgun.

The assailants reportedly
robbed him of cash, a cell phone
and a hand chain before flee-
ing in a red Honda Civic.

Shortly before 3am, two men
in a red Honda Civic robbed a
man trying to close his front
gate. The culprits took a wallet
containing cash.

Some time later, a husband
and wife were réportedly
robbed of cellular phones anda
pack of cigarettes by two men
who got out of a white vehicle
and ran over to them as they
were attempting to enter their
home. After the robbery, the
assailants sped off.

Mr Evans recommended peo-
ple make sure their home.-area

THE TRIBUNE



@ By ALISON LOWE
Tribune Staff Reporter

alowe@tribunemedia.net

THERE is a role for censor-
ship in this country but it should
not be to determine what
movies can and cannot, be
viewed by adults, according to
some members of the public.

CEO of Galleria Cinemas
Chris Mortimer, who is among
those who hold this opinion, sat
on a panel last Thursday at
COB to discuss the role of the

» Bahamas Play and Films Con-
trol Board in society. The meet-
ing was called by the new board
chairperson Cheryl Cartwright.

Mr Mortimer and others in the
room suggested that the most seri-
ous problems which the Bahamas

faces — murder, rape, violence — _

have nothing to do with what is
shown in movie theatres.

“The problem is that we have |

parents who do not play an
active role in the lives of their
kids,” said the businessman,
who feels that censorship by
adults of what their children can
and cannot see is important —
and indeed, advisable.
Furthermore, he said that to

allow the Board to practise cen-

sorship in its most extreme form
is to “presume that one person
or group can make better deci-
sions for another group of
adults” — adults who have been
deemed mature enough to vote,
for their own government.

However, Pastor Lyall Bethel
of Grace Community Church,
said that to allow certain movies
to be shown is essentially an
endorsement of their content
by Bahamian society.

Church elder Andy Knowles
said with any subject matter,
“the more you watch it the more
you are going to think it’s okay”.

The word “censorship”. has
problematic and negative con-
notations, said Pastor Bethel.
He suggested that the board’s
work should be thought of more
as the “setting of standards”.

Affirming his “unapologetic
support?’ for. the work of the
board, he added: “Standards
he
k



encase wer rapes |
He claimed that the board’s
actions do not qualify as “true
censorship” as this would entail
the “total repression” of some-
thing. With Bahamians still free
to purchase any films: to view
in their own homes, this is not
what is occurring, he said.

The religious leader charged
that the standards which must
be set and upheld by the board
should be based upon Christ-
ian values, as the preamble to
the constitution designates this
country as a “Christian nation”.

Erin Greene, spokesperson for
the gay rights group the Rainbow
Alliance said it was hypocritical of
the board to ban Brokeback
Mountain —a movie about a “love
affair between two men” in the
words of COB professor and pan-

elist Michael Stevenson — but reg-

‘ularly approve movies with
extremely violent content. _
“Let’s focus our energies on
where they need to be focused,”
_ said Ms Greene. ;

The board is made up of 40
persons and falls under the Min-
istry of National Security. It
therefore turns to the minister
of national security — currently
Tommy Turnquest — for the res-
olution of disputes over what
censorship is and is not justifi-
able in a democratic society.

According to Lester Mor-
timer, an attorney with law firm
Callenders and Co, there are
several reasons why Bahamians
should have cause for concern
about the workings of the board.

“A “very wide power” given



us to.aim higher,,t6 strive

uh

Cheryl Cartwright

to the minister to “censor plays
and films without any refer-
ence” to what restrictions on
freedom are permissible in the
constitution is one such reason,
he suggested.

For example, while the con-
stitution permits infringements
of freedom for reasons of “pub-
lic safety, public order or public
morality” the act which man-

dates the board adds that films:

can be censored if they are con-
trary to “public morality or the
public interest.”

Mr Mortimer presented evi-
dence from numerous historic
rulings on freedom of expres-
sion, to the overall effect that
for the greater good, one must
err on the side of freedom of
expression rather than censor-
ship in a democratic society.

To allow adults to make up
their own mind about what they

see in the movie theatre, for-
example, helps them to attain:

“self fulfillment”, assists in the
“discovery of truth”, strength-
ens their decision-making capac-
ity, and helps societies adapt to
change, one ruling claimed.

However Pastor Bethel said
that the board’s function is not
to limit the “personal freedom”
of persons interested in seeing
such films, but rather is focused
on the protection of the “public
good”.

He said that to allow “unlim-
ited personal freedoms”, such
as the right to view certain films,
would allow, a few:to detrimen-
tally infringe, on the rights of

others in society.”

COB associate professor
Michael Stevenson, who con-
demned what he described as
the board’s “unconstitutional”
decision to ban films, spoke in
favour of the need for “deep
dialogue and conversation” on
matters such as the censorship
of films or plays.

To:allow more persons to
engage in debate about the
issue would foster “mutual
understanding and ultimately
the formation of consensus.”



LOCAL NEWS

Control board debate
raises censorship issues



He said that public knowledge
of the board’s decisions on which
films are censored and why has
traditionally been restricted in
this country by “powerful reli-
gious interests ... that choose to
govern questions of morality
from afar and in the dark and
whom the government chooses
not to subject to.the scrutiny of
democratic dialogue.”

Having been “robbed of the
chance to engage in democratic
dialogue about morality” per-
sons become less understand-
ing of one another and ulti-

mately more prone to harming

those around them, he said.
According to Mr Stevenson,

“Brokeback Mountain is not the

only critically acclaimed movie’

to have been shut away from
the eyes of the Bahamian”.
City of God, a movie which
won numerous accolades, also
faced the axe at their hands.
Board chairwoman Cheryl
Cartwright told those gathered
that she sees the board’s work
as a necessary form of “public
service”, pointing out that none
of those on the board are paid
for the time they put into it.
Whether Bahamians want to
“see what we would like to see
or who we are” is an issue that
the board has to take into con-
sideration, she suggested,
The 40 board members have
held their positions for two and
a half months.

THE TRIBUNE



A challe nge to the African
Diaspora in the ale

@ By Arthur Foulkes

(The article printed below is
from a speech by Sir Arthur
Foulkes in Gambier Village on
the occasion of the Gambier
Homecoming Festival in
August)

| hank you for inviting

me to this opening cer-
emony of the annual Home-
coming Festival on Gambier
Day and for the opportunity to
share some thoughts with you.

- | have lived many places in
the Bahamas - from Inagua to
Andros, from Chippingham to
Hawkins Hill, and places in
between - but for most of the
time my family and I have been
living right here in the Gam-
bier neighbourhood.

I cannot lay claim to a con-
nection with the founding
fathers of this Village. The boat
that brought my African ances-
tors landed somewhere else.
But I can claim to be a resident
and a neighbour for nearly 40
years. ;

And so I am proud to see the
flowering of awareness and the

‘determined efforts to take hold
of, to conserve, and to celebrate

our cultural and historical her-
itage here in Gambier. I con-
gratulate all who were instru-
mental in getting this Festival
on to our national calendar,
especially Mr Neville Wisdom.

What we are about is a cele-
bration of our culture, and [
should like to recall the words
of two men who were 19th cen-
tury contemporaries.

“Human culture is the art of

revealing to a man the true idea
of his being, his endowment, his
possessions, and of fitting him
to use these for the growth,
renewal, and perfection of his
spirit. It is the art of completing
aman.”

Those words were written by
Bronson Alcott; and this is what
Thomas Carlyle said:

“The great law of culture is,
let each become all that he was
created capable of being;
expand, if possible, to his full
growth; resisting all impedi-
ments, casting all foreign, espe-
cially all noxious adhesions...”

Every branch of human cul-
ture is influenced and shaped
by many elements including
geography, climate and histo-
ry. I say branch advisedly
because all human culture is
shaped by another powerful

element, and that is the human
spirit, the essence that is shared
by all humankind, the thing
which gives meaning to the
words: We are one.

So any particular culture is a
variation of a broader human
culture just as there are varia-
tions on a musical theme. We
all recognise the grand theme
when we'see it and we are fas-
cinated by the multitude of vari-
ations of which it is capable.

When we hear a form of
Asian music, for instance, we
recognise it as music. The same
when we hear African music,
or Middle Eastern music or
European music, or our own
Caribbean miusic.

We want to appreciate and
enjoy them all. So I do not

‘ entirely agree with Thomas

Carlyle about casting foreign
influences. But we must cer-

tainly be wary of what he calls »

the noxious adhesions, the ones
that poison the best that is in
us, that tend to disfigure the
best that we are

l am talking about the
influences that encourage
us to poison our bodies with
drugs, to exchange our tradi-

tional Bahamian manners for
the crude behaviour and the

language of the American

hood, to exchange the beauty .

that we are capable of creating
for sheer ugliness, to reinforce
the self-hatred that the slave
master used to control the slave.

So while we appreciate all
that the world and human his-
tory has to offer that is posi-
tive, we must reject the negative
- and every culture has its neg-
atives. And we must also be

honest and determined to deal -
- with the negative aspects of our

own culture

We must root out ugly home-
grown habits before we come
to accept them as a necessary
part of Bahamian culture. They
are not. They are nothing but
weeds.

We are fortunate inasmuch
as our Bahamian culture has
benefited from the rest of the
world. For instance, some of
the chords in our theme speak
of the European experience in
political and economic devel-
opment.

But we are ever-conscious of
the powerful influence of our
African heritage and the some-
times overwhelming and con-
fusing history of slavery.

The founders of Gambier
Village were not slaves in this
community, but like tens of
thousands before them, they

were in shackles for the long
and tortuous Middle Passage
journey. They were part of a
society that was largely con-
structed around slavery and dis-
figured by it.

That experience can no more

_ be eliminated from our psyche

and consciousness than the ter-

rible experiences of other peo-.

ples that continue to influence
their outlook and their destiny.
And why is that so? Simply
because we are human.

| he Jews are a good
example. But one dif-
ference between the Jews and

us, at least in most of Western
society today, is that there is a

_ strong movement to exorcise ©
all the demons of anti-Semitism

- in language and in art. Some
go so far as to advocate making
the denial of HG Holocaust a
crime.

By contrast, many of the
roots of prejudice against
Africans.and their descendants
in the West are still very much
in place. You are familiar with
some the language used even
by people who regard them-
selves as liberal -expressions
such as “black-on-black vio-
lence”.

Did- you ever-hear- anyone
talk about on white-on-white

‘violence? And do you wonder

why it never occurs to them to
examine the reason for this?’
Then there is the persistent
stereotyping, as if all African
Americans, for instance, think
or act alike, or see themselves in
precisely the same way, or use
the same language as the crim-
inals and pimps in the hood.
During the controversy over
the Don Imus insult to some
very fine African American
women, there were those who
were all too ready to blame the
rap artists instead of the racist

culprit. They even blamed the.

overt racism ofa German sol-
dier on the rappers!

‘The one that trritates. me

most is the assertion by so
many, including some so-called
conservative intellectuals (black

‘and white) that disadvantaged -.
African Americans are to’

blame for their state because

-other people have survived slav-

ery and are doing just fine.

| he truth is that no oth-
er people in the history

’ of humankind have suffered

anything like the Middle Pas-
sage slave trade and the
enslavement of black Africans
in the Americas.

It was, in its totality, EPs
dented.

It was unprecedented in that
it was based on race.

It was unprecedented in its
intensity, in its brutality and i in
its duration.

It was unprecedented in that

‘the slaves were cut off from

their land and from their kin-
folk, from their language, from
their culture and from their reli-
gion.

Tt was unprecedented in that
for generations they were not
only treated as inferior but sys-
tematically subjected to brain-
washing to make them believe
that they were inferior.

Never before nor since has a
race of people been subjected
to such a sustained onslaught
of misery, terror and dehuman-
isation as Africans in the New
World. And much of it contin-
ued after slavery.

What is remarkable, there :

fore, is not that many of them
act as if they have been trau-
matised; after all, they are only
human. What is remarkable is
that they have survived at all.
This brings me to the message I
should like to leave with you.

Peo of African
descent must, like the
Jews, demand at least an

acknowledgment of the injus-
tice inflicted upon them. .But,

more importantly, they must
celebrate the fact that as a race
they survived their prolonged
holocaust.

Some of the. descendants of ‘”
black Africans in the New
World - in America, in South
America, in the Caribbean, and.
in The Bahamas - still wallow in
self-pity and make excuses for
their failures.

It is time to stop that. Many
of our forebears rose above that
-- and they were far worse off
than any of us. They had higher
mountains to climb and wider
rivers to. cross. But. they
climbed, and they crossed; and
they left us a goodly heritage.

The slaves suffered great
indignities, but the great shame
of slavery is neither for them
nor for us to bear. The shame
belongs entirely to the slave
masters, and to those who
would attempt to ‘sanitise this
awful history.

The people who survived the
worst that the world could
inflict, the people who estab-
lished the Village of Gambier

_and Fox Hilland Adelaide and |
Carmichael - our African arices-

tors - were neither cowards nor
quitters. If they were, we would
not have been here.

There was nothing inferior
about them. They were a most
remarkable people, a coura-
geous race, physically and psy-

chologically powerful; and the

wellsprings of their spirituality
ran deep.

They knew that it was impor- —
tant for them to nurture the
next generation, to establish
communities so that they in
turn could survive -even in a
hostile environment.

Do we have any idea of the
difficulties they had to over-
come? Of the courage and
determination they had to sum-
mon up?

ai . his precious ener this

patrimony;, this inheri-
tance is now ours. It is for us
to pass it on to future genera-
tions, to remind them of the
courage and sacrifice of our
noble ancestors.

We must teach our young
people pride in their heritage,

‘and inspire them to build on

what our forebears established,
not to destroy it with excessive
use of alcohol and drugs, and
crime, and bad manners, and
slothfulness, and disrespect.

We must teach them to
become all that they were cre-
ated capable of being, to
expand to their full growth, to
overcome all the obstacles, to
resist all the noxious adhe-
sions. :

We must teach our young
men and women how to respect
each other, how to honour their
elders, and how to uphold the
dignity and the rights of oth-
ers.
~ We must teach them that the
art of completing a man is not
about how much weed they can
smoke, not about how much
bad language they can spout,
but about assuming responsi-

‘bility, and conducting them-

selves with dignity as their fore-
bears did.

We must teach them to get
in touch with the wellsprings
that made Gambier Village pos-

‘sible. We must teach them that

it is not smart, not Bahamian, to
adopt the vulgar language and
behaviour of some in the Amer-
ican hood.

The success of the nation
depends upon the success of
Gambier Village and other vil-
lages, towns and communities
throughout these islands. The
nation begins right here. If we
allow our communities and our
families to go to hell, the nation.
will certainly follow.

But if we honour our ances-
tors, treasure our cultural and
historical heritage, and build
strong communities, strong
families, then there will be no
limit to what we can achieve as
a people.

Pires oS eee
Bahamas Culture Day
celebrated in New York

BAHAMIAN exiles in
New York have been cele-
brating one of their best sum-
mer cultural programmes
ever.

The Bahamian American
Cultural Society concluded its
schedule on a high note with
its annual Bahamas. Culture
Day last month.

- And members have vowed
to make the event even better
in years to come.

“The confidence and deter-
mination of the society’s
members and ardent friends
were undaunted,” said mem-
ber Beryl Edgecombe.

The Culture Day was truly
representative of the society’s
mission — to expose Bahamian
culture in the interest of peace
and maintaining a strong
bridge between Bahamian-
Americans and their home-
land.

Relaxing with Bahamian

music by Ronnie Butler, KB,,

Elon Moxey and others, and
watching the full moon over
the East River separating
Brooklyn from Manhattan, a
senior Bahamian who has
been in New York for over
50 years smiled and said:
“This reminds me of days

. long ago sitting by the beach
in The Bahamas, longing to
go to New York.”

A young man in his early
twentiés, with a Goombay
punch in his hand, said: “I

was born here.
“T don’t know
much



about The Bahamas. How can
I join your group and know
more?”

Three other major events
of BACS this summer were
participation in the African
American Day Parade in Sep-
tember; the International Cul-
tures Expo-Fest and Parade
in June and the provision of
an information and culture
booth during The West Indian
American Carnival on Sep:
tember 4.

In the African American
Day Parade, BACS joined
university bands, union floats
and political personalities in
honouring black heritage and
heroes. An automobile dec-
orated with the Bahamian
colours and flag, pumping out

- Junkanoo music, was preced-
_ed by two persons carrying

the BACS emblem.

Following were partici-
pants wearing T-shirts of
aquamarine, yellow and black,
each emblazoned with
*Junkanoo” on the front and
“Bahamas” on the back.

BACS’s presentation was
well received along the 30-
block route. People were
moving to the Junkanoo beat,
clapping their hands, and
cheering loudly.

As BACS’s cultural cara-
van danced along 125 Street
near the Adam Clayton Pow-
ell State Building, Radio Sta-
tion WBLS praised BACS for
its presentation and

representation of

The Bahamas culture,

The announcer zeroed in
on The Junkanoo Expres-
sions, and highlighted The
Bahamas as a most preferred
tourist resort.

This successful event was
foreshadowed by BACS’s
active participation in the
planning and presentation of
the International Cultural
Festival, held earlier in June.

As a member of the Inter-
national Immigrants Founda-
tion — International Cultures
Mission United Nations,

BACS joined other nations.
Caribbean,.

from Asia,
Europe and Latin American
in parades along the Avenue
of The Americas, manned a
cultural booth, and present-
ed on stage. The theme was,
“Beautiful Bahamas .... We
make peace not war.”

On September 4, US
Labour Day, BACS provid-
ed an information booth
about the society and to show-

case samples of Bahamas cul-'

ture, especially in food. An
estimated 1,500-2,000 people
stopped and made inquiries
about The Bahamas, the soci-
ety and aspects of Bahamas
culture.

THE TRIBUNE

Ministry responds

to Tribune article
on Fox Hill prisoner

THE Ministry of National
Security, in'a statement issued

‘yesterday, said that for the

“most part, the assertions”
made by the family of Fox Hill
inmate Trent Albury of Abaco
and published in The Tribune
on Monday, October 8, “can-
not be supported by facts.”
Those assertions were
reported in the Insight feature
by Tribune Managing Editor
John Marquis headed, “Hor-
ror Story Without End — Pris-
oner believes death is the only

escape from the hell of Fox,

Hill Prison.”

“Contrary to the article,”
said the Ministry’s statement,
“there is no reference in any




gf Amnesty International’s
Annual Reports in recent
times that describes Her
Majesty’s Prison as ‘one of the

‘worst jails in the western

hemisphere.’ Also, Amnesty
International has not. visited
Her Majesty’s Prison in mahy
years.

“According to medical
authorities at the Prison, Mr
Albury does not havea heart

condition, nor is there any evi-.

dence of collapsed lungs or
bleeding ulcers.

“With respect to the asser-
tion of withholding proper
health care from Mr Albury,
the article is correct that there

the Prison (along with a visit-
ing psychiatrist and a dentist).
Mr Albury is regularly seen

-by the psychiatrist and he is

seen by the prison physician
as he requests,” said the Min-
istry.

“With regard to medication,
Mr Albury is given medication
as prescribed by both the psy-
chiatrist and prison physician,
and receives medication for all
known ailments on a daily
basis. He was being treated for
depression prior to his incar-
ceration at Her Majesty’s
Prison. His broken eyeglasses
have been OPP ee and
returned to

“Asa eraahded inmate, Mr
Albury receives cooked food
from relatives on a daily basis
and he is allowed a change of
clothing and bedding from rel-
atives every Tuesday.

“With respect to the so-called
piece of rope that an inmate
once used to hang himself and
which now supposedly dangles
from the ceiling of Mr

_ Albury’s cell, this claim is

baseless. There is not now nor
has there been a piece of rope
dangling from the ceiling of
Mr Albury’s cell, nor at any
time has Mr Albury been
housed in a cell or a block
within which an inmate com-
mitted suicide.

“While there are many chal-
lenges facing Her Majesty’s
Prison, it is clear to the most
cursory observer that there is a
heightened regard for human
rights. This is best illustrated
by the total absence of gangs;

the rarity of fights; the scarci-

ty of escapes; the infrequency
of hunger strikes and suicide
attempts; and the overall
atmosphere of humaneness,
orderliness, containment and
control. Growth and rehabili-
tation opportunities now char-
acterise Her Majesty’s Prison,”
said the Ministry of National
Security.

THE TRIBUNE

Tribune and Guardian
‘bucking the trends’

THE Tribune and Nassau Guardian are buck-

ing the trends. Tribune circulation continues to |

rise steadily and is now consistently very close to
20,000 copies on Thursday, its biggest sales day et
the week.

The Nassau Guardian is also standing firm on
the best-selling day of the week, reinforcing The
Tribune’s and Guardian’s positions as market
leaders.

“No. other newspapers come close to the
unmatched paid circulation that these two vibrant
titles give an advertiser,” said Mr Tony Ferguson,
President of the Nassau Guardian.

“Monday and Thursday have always been the
strongest sales days, but The Tribune’s circulation
is now consistently hitting new heights,” added Mr
Robert Carron, Chief Operating Officer of The
Nassau Guardian and The Tribune.

“We are very pleased that the Nassau
Guardian circulation has also rebounded
nicely.

“Its dedicated staff, new team, unique design
and team of journalists now headed by Ms Erica
Wells and our President Mr Tony Ferguson have
reinvigorated the product,” he added.

“Tam also very proud of our wonderful fami
ly at The Tribune headed by Mr John Marquis
and the job they do each and every day in deliv-
ering the news to the Bahamian public,” said Mr
Carron.

“The Tribune’s continuing success is down to
the commitment and ability of our staff across the
board, excellent editorial quality, coverage of
issues that Bahamians find important to them,

-and an excellent distribution system,” said: Mr

Paco Nunez, The Tribune’s news editor.

Local writers ee their voices heard

THE Tribune /College of
the Bahamas Partnership for
Literacy combined with the
National Art Gallery of the
Bahamas to present two very
successful nights of readings
by local writers.

The evenings were organ-
ised as part of the partner-
ship’s contribution to Inter-
national Literacy Month.

“Believing that they share
a responsibility towards pro-
ducing an informed and liter-
ate citizenship, the college,
The Tribune and NAGB
viewed these evenings as a
way to enhance the profiles of

Erica James, director - National Art Gallery of the Bahamas

local writers and to promote
an active dialogue on the place
of literacy and Bahamian writ-
ing in our society,” said organ-
isers in a statement.

The presentations took
place in the inspiring sur-
roundings of the NAGB and
featured renaissance woman,
poet, performer, artist and
writer Dr Desiree Cox; author
of “The Debbie Ferguson Sto-
ry - Born To Run” Gardon
Mills; and poet, writer, singer
and performer Pat Rahming.

Mr Mills and Dr Cox shared
the first evening and present-
ed contrasting material to a
lively, standing room. only
audience.

Dr Cox read from her novel :

_ in progress that looks back on

the. Bahamas of her formative .
years. . mh

She. shared many insights
and stories concerning people

and events that have influ.

enced her artistic career and
answered some informed and

. probing questions from the

very involved audience.
Mr Mills read from some

recent poems and stories that
he is putting together into a~

collection and concluded with
two extracts from his book.
The second evening again |
drew a capacity crowd, which —
was treated to a feast of poet-

ty and writing by Pat Rah-

Again the audience asked
informed questions and Rah-
ming's fascinating answers
threw light on his writing
process and his influences.

“The number of people who
came out and the level of
‘involvement they exhibited
show that there is a very real
appreciation of and interest in
Bahamian writing,” the organ-
isers said. “The Tribune /Col-
lege of The Bahamas Partner-
ship for Literacy looks back
on the evenings as successes
and plans to promote similar
events in the future.”

for government staff

in length from one’ to Six
months for a period between
January 2 and June 30, 2007. =.
Additionally, the prime min:
ister said that 32 people were
engaged in the,former ministry
of local government and con-

sumer affairs for a period from.

January 1st to May 10th of this
year.

“T find it interesting,’ Mr
Speaker, two letters of appoint-
ment on three, month contrac-
tual terms issued on two sepa-
rate individuals were issued
‘under first sight’ of the admin-
istrator at Nicholls ‘Town;

Andros, notwithstanding their :

engagement to provide setvice
at Cabbage Hill Primary
School. Iam not aware of any

school by that namé' in

Andros,” Mr Ingraham said.
Of this group of temporary

workers whose, names:.and «.
salaries

were tabled-

, most were employed at a
salary of $700 per month and
two at $800 per month, which
the prime minister emphasized,
was beneath the $890 minimum
wage “paid by the public ser-
vice.’

The prime minister also
tabled the letters of appoint-
ment for the workers verifying
the time frame of the contracts
issued by the former govern-
ment. He noted that 27 of the
contract workers. in, the
MICAL constituency were
assigned to work in the admin-
istrator’s office.

Despite the evidence pre-
sented by the prime minister,
Mr Gray maintained that Mrs
Ingraham was victimised, stat-
ing that she was hired “with
the intention to become: per-
manent”.

The prime minister chal-
lenged the veracity of this
statement by Mr Gray citing

the letters of appointment for.

Mrs Ingraham. On the Febru-

extending ‘this period for two
- months,

. With two letters,. donly
employing Mrs: Ingraham fora
few months, the prime minister
said “the question of intention

of taking her on permanently,

is very clear.”

_ Explaining the short term
‘contracts issued by the PLP,
Mr Gray responded that the
financial state of Morton Salt
earlier this year, led him to
seek cabinet approval “during
the month of March or there-
abouts” to spend $50,000. in

order to assist the people of _

“the constituency. |,

,and claimed that he used the .
money “at. his'discretion “to » |}

could:have.”

“$The basis upon which he
got the $50,000 from the cabi-
net was not about Morton, ” Mr
Ingraham declared.

“I did not say it ‘was about
‘Morton,” Mr Gray responded.
“What I said was; when Mor-
ton laid off temporarily some
people in March. or there-
‘abouts, I used part of that-mon-

ey (the $50,000) to assist,those. .
people. "That's what I said,” Mr»

Gray added.
Mr Gray also denied that 27
‘workers were stationed in the
administrator’s office in
Inagua.

“Mister Speaker, I can assure
you that those people did not
work at the administrator’s
office, they worked all over

Cuba says embargo

cost country dearly

IN a one year period between
2006 and 2007, the Cuban food
sector lost $258 million as a
result of the American embar-
go, according to the government
of Cuba.

A new report by Cuban offi-
cials says the country’s trans-
port sector lost $208.8 million
in the same period, while the
cultural sector suffered a
$20,365,000 blow.

The damage to the national

health service was estimated at

$30 million.

The report has been released
in the run-up to what has become
an annual exercise in the UN —
the vote on Whether the US
should end its embargo on Cuba.

At the end of this month, the
Bahamas will be asked to vote
in the UN on whether the
embargo — in place since 1962 —
should continue.

This will follow a submission
of a draft resolution entitled
“Necessity of ending the eco-
nomic, commercial and financial
embargo imposed by the United
States of America against Cuba”
for the consideration of the UN
General Assembly on Tuesday
October, 30.

It will be the 16th year in
Which members states have
been asked to vote on the reso-
_ lution. Last year, 183 member
states out of a total of 191 voted
to end the embargo.

In'the last year, the embargo —

Pays ia Bare nerice



labelled an “economic war” by
the Cuban government — has
been intensified, “despite. the
express wishes of the international
community,” the report said.

The report said the blockade
has had negative repercussions
on every aspect of life — from
the food Cubans eat, to public
health, to education, to trans-
port and-culture and equally;
on the opportunities for Amer-
ican citizens and the rest of the
world to benefit from Cuba’s
offerings in these areas.

The extraterritorial effects of
the embargo have ,been
increased, making it harder for
Cuba to trade with at least 30
other countries that it has tra-
ditionally turned to for prod-

ucts it is not allowed to pur- ~

chase in the US.
“Extraterritorality has been

taken to such an extreme that
Cuban citizens living, abroad
have been obliged to close their
bank accounts, or risk having
them cancelled, at local banks
that have been taken over by
American banks or have some
kind of affiliation with the lat-
ter,” the report said.
Sanctions have Hopped
Cubans from travelling to acade-.'
mic and medical conferences they
have been invited to in the US
and the same has been the case

‘for Americans invited to Cuba. |

A growing number of fines
imposed on Americans who
travel to Cuba by their own
government has caused the
number of American visits to
Cuba to drop by 48,000 in the
last four years, said the report.

The Cuban healthcare sys-
tem, hailed as a model by many,
and the transport sector, have
taken a significant blow it said.

Medical equipment and phar-
maceuticals, along with mechan-
ical components, only available
in the US are simply not obtain-.
able, to the detriment of the
Cuban public’s health and the

‘economy. Where it is available

elsewhere, it will cost more to
buy and import, noted the report.
Cuba contends that Wash-
ington’s policy is ultimately
intended to “deprive the Cuban
people of its sovereignty and of
the exercise of its right to self
determination.”

Embargo tightening ‘limits medicines’

THE Cuban government says

that as a result of the recent _

tightening of the American

embargo, an inhalatory anaes-

thetic used to prepare children
for surgery cannot be obtained.

A new report says this has
caused doctors to have to use
inferior substitutes that are ulti-
mately more costly.

This is just one of many
examples in the report of how
the embargo has affected life
for the Cuban’ population: ¥ *

~ Even attempts: to purchase
medical equipment from Japan
has been blocked as more than
10 per cent of a particular

*

Tiki Torch

device’s components were man-

ufactured in the US, it noted.

It said intensified sanctions
have also limited the number.
of websites and services Cubans
can access online, impacting
education.

Google Earth and certain anti-
virus software updates are not
available to Cubans and the
website tells them: “This product
is not available in your country.”

Supplies which would support
educationaliprégranimes ‘are |

~denied-to the-country~by-the-~

embargo, impeding the “most
basic academic and educational
freedoms” of its people, said

the report.

Culturally, the ability of |
Cubans to perform abroad and
for Americans to visit Cuba to
enjoy its traditions has aso been
diminished.

In 2006, not a single Gaban
band was allowed to perform
in the US on the grounds that it
was against US interests.

Cuban artists were stopped
from attending the Grammy
awards to which they were invit-
eMlewetuinbs shy sis

- Sales’ of Cubartibooks in the’
last year have suffered to the’
tune of $100,000, and cultural
exchanges have been diminished.

NEEDED IMMEDIATELY | Domestic Investment Board

was never appointed

FROM page one

North Andros, Mr Ingraham
painted a grim picture of how
certain sections of the Christie-
led government operated.

“I wish further to advise that
the relevant Ministry’s files, the
conclusions of Cabinet, as well
as information provided to me
by a member of the private sec-
tor, appointed in September,
2006 to what was termed a
‘Core Action Group’, confirm
that a Domestic Investment
Board was never appointed by
the Christie-led government.
The records of the ministry are
replete with the intention and
plans for the establishment of
a Board.

“Indeed, a proposal for the
appointment of the Board was
considered by the Cabinet in
October, 2006. At that time, the
Cabinet determined that the
structure proposed by the Min-
istry of Financial Services and
Investments was beyond that
anticipated by the government.

OCTOBER, 2007

















The Cabinet ‘invited the min-
ister responsible to further dis-
cuss the initiative to establish a
Domestic Investment Board
with the Prime Minister and the
Minister of State for Finance
and hence to revert with a
revised proposal on the same’.

“Whether the requested con-
sultation between the minister,
the Prime Minister, and the
Minister of State for Finance
took place, I do not know. The

files are silent on the matter. °

However draft Cabinet papers
are on file. None was perfected
and the minister never reverted
to Cabinet on the matter. Con-
sequently, Cabinet never
approved the appointment of a
Domestic Investments Board,”
he said.

Mr Ingraham said that two
consultants were appointed to
the Domestic Investment
Board, Don Demeritte, who
previously was appointed as
chairman of the Water and
Sewerage Corporation, and
Paul Major, the former general
manager of Bahamasair. In
addition, he said, an ‘Advisory
Action Group’, which included
a number of representatives
from the public and private sec-
tors was also appointed, he said.

However, the then Minister
of Financial Services, PLP MP
for North Andros Vincent Peet

said that the Board had met,
“almost every week” and did a
“number of things.”

“There were some 74 appli-
cations which were brought
before the Domestic Investment
Board. The Board was not kept
private, it was publicized. It had
very, very active meetings. i

“There were talk shows, sem- :
inars, in fact ones that the Board
produced,” Mr Peet explained.

“We took the view, Mr
Speaker, that because of the
large foreign investment in the
Bahamas, it was important for
Bahamian investors to share in
this industry, and that was why
the Board was established.”

In response to this, Mr Ingra-
ham said that he will take the
course of action, as Prime Min-
ister, that if Mr Peet continued:
to “mislead” the House of :
Assembly he would not interact
with Mr Peet until he concedes
that he has misled the hon-
ourable chamber.

Mr Peet continued to make
his case, claiming that if Mr -:
Ingraham’s supporters cannot
find the records of the meetings
— that was another matter. .

Mr Ingraham answered final-
ly that he would work towards
making public government’s
position on the establishment :
of the Domestic Investment :
Board.

tion (from Knowles’ attorney)
which will be reviewed if he so
desires.”

When asked to respond to the
claims made by Knowles that, ,
the former administration may
have acted inappropriately and —
was “deceived” by US authori-. y
ties, Mr Symonette said that the 3
paperwork indicated that due’ 5
diligence was performed. i

“The (extradition) files indi-} b
cate that the appropriate pro- °
cedure was followed, (howev-.
er) the question to be asked i is,,

(before the courts)?”

Previous reports indicate that.
during the process of Knowles’
extradition in August, 2006 he ]
had an outstanding writ of |
habeas corpus filed with the 1
Bahamas Supreme Court.

Mr Symonette added that,
Knowles had the right for his
case to be heard before the ,
Bahamian court system.

Attempts were made to con- ;;
tact Roger Minnis, Knowles’
Bahamian attorney, on the sta-,,
tus of a formal application, but, ,

Athletes’ school visits inspire
students and team members



SCHOOL visits by the
award-winning athletes of
Team Bahamas are more
than just an effort to put the
champions on display,
according to Minister of
State for Youth and Sports
Byran Woodside.

“It is so important in our
nation to expose our children
to Team Bahamas as we cel-
ebrate champions in this
National Youth Month,” Mr
Woodside said. “It is impor-
tant for them to identify with
Team Bahamas and have
that sense of pride that we
all do throughout this coun-
try.

“It is an opportunity to
instil pride in the young peo-
ple of this country and I
could. find no better group
of persons to do that than
Team Bahamas.”

Team Bahamas member
and International Associa-
tion of Athletics Federations
(IAAF) silver medalist Chris
Brown said that it is “a joy

and a pleasure” to visit with

students.

“Tt makes the whole team

and me feel proud to know
that we could come back and
give something back to the
community and the little fans
and the big fans; so it feels
pretty good to come home
and show them love and they
show us love,” he said.
Team Bahamas member
Andrae Williams, who was
also an IAAF silver medalist,

added that way the students’

react to seeing them makes
him feel good inside. —

“It's just something good,
going around and encourag-
ing the students to stay
focused,” he said. “They
could be right where we are,
too — so, it is something pos-
itive.”

Carifta Games silver
medalist and St John's stu-
dent Wayne Cleare said he

=was*“ovetjoyed™ to have

Team Bahamas at-his school
and appreciated what effect
their visit will have on the
students.

_ “With all the negative
things out there for young

people to get into, to have

these people come to our
school and make a positive
impact, it makes me happy,”
he said.

Another St John's College
student athlete, 400-metre
runner Matthew Beckles,

“As a runner myself, it
really encourages me to
believe that I could make it
and, one day, come back
here to St John's,” he said.
“It makes me feel'like I
could do it.”

Chris Brown added that he
feels proud that the team's
accomplishments could
inspire and encourage young
male athletes because of his
own personal journey.

“For me, it.was a struggle,
from day one, and [| am still
striving,” he said. “I look out
there and say, 'If I could do
it, anybody else could de it'.”

Bahamas track and field
coach and deputy director of
sports Frank “Pancho” Rah-
ming said: “These students
have dreams and aspirations
and if they look at our ath-
letes, they will realise that
all these athletes had dreams
and aspirations and they
worked hard enough and
they achieved what they
worked hard for.

“It's good for the athletes
themselves to speak to the
youngsters and let them
know that it is not all guns
and knives and _ being
rogues,” he added. “It's
more about striving for
something positive, that's
really what it is.”

Chris Brown said: “I just
want to tell our youth, male
or female, but especially to
the young men, to never give
up and always choose the
positive road in life because
you never know where it's
going to take you.

exited a Bahamasair aircraft
around 7.50am. They were
then greeted by a receiving
line consisting of high profile
government officials.

A large number of persons,

- including the athletes’ family

members, were on hand at the

at the Domestic Terminal,
where a brief welcome cere-
mony was held.

Thomas embraced his moth-

Calling Thomas to the podi-

um, Mr Woodside noted that
the Bahamas is extremely
proud of the high jumper.
_ Thomas cleared 2.35 metres

Gerhard Ertl wins

Nobel chemistry prize for
chemical reaction research

m@ STOCKHOLM, Sweden

GERHARD Ertl of Ger-
many won the 2007 Nobel
Prize in chemistry on Wednes-
day for studies of chemical
reactions on solid surfaces,
which are key to understand-
ing questions like how pollu-
tion eats away at the ozone
layer, according to Associated
Press. |

Ertl’s research laid the foun-
dation of modern surface
chemistry, which has helped
explain how fuel cells produce
energy without pollution, how
catalytic converters clean up
car exhaust and even why iron
rusts, the Royal Swedish Acad-
emy of Sciences said.

His work has paved the way
for development of cleaner
energy sources and will guide
the development of fuel cells,
said Astrid Graslund, secre-
tary of the Nobel Committee
for Chemistry.

Ertl, who won the prize on
his 71st birthday, told reporters
that it “is the best birthday
present that you can give to
somebody.”

“I am speechless,” Ertl told
The Associated Press from his

wy

office in Berlin. “I was not
counting on this.”

Ertl is an emeritus professor
at the Fritz Haber Institute of
the Max Planck Society in
Berlin. Planck and Haber were
themselves Nobel laureates,
winning the physics and chem-
istry prizes in 1918.

The academy said Ertl pro-
vided a detailed description of
how chemical reactions take
place on surfaces and studied
some of the most fundamen-
tal mysteries in that field.

Ertl showed how to obtain
reliable results in this difficult
area of research, and his find-
ings applied in both academic
studies and_ industrial
development, the academy
said.

“Surface chemistry can even
explain the destruction of the
ozone layer, as vital steps in
the reaction actually take place
on the surfaces of small crys-
tals of ice in the stratosphere,”
the award citation said.

Americans Mario R. Capec-
chi and Oliver Smithies, and
Briton Sir Martin J. Evans,
won the 2007 Nobel Prize in
medicine on Monday for
groundbreaking discoveries

that led to a powerful tech-
nique for manipulating mouse
genes.

On Tuesday, France’s Albert
Fert and German’ Peter Gru-
enberg won the physics award
for discovering a phenomenon
that lets computers and digi-
tal music players store reams
of data on ever-shrinking hard
disks.

German Chancellor Angela
Merkel congratulated both
German winners.

“I'am very happy that this
year we managed to get the
Nobel prizes in both disciplines
— physics and chemistry,” she
said. “This is a special honor
for Germany’s scientists.”

German President Horst
Koehler sent a congratulatory
letter to Ertl. “In the truest
sense of Alfred Nobel, you
have made a contribution to
improve the lives of the peo-
ple,” Koehler wrote.

Prizes for literature, peace
and economics will be
announced through Oct. 15.

The awards — each worth
$1.5 million — will be handed
out by Sweden’s King Carl
XVI Gustaf at a ceremony in
Stockholm on Dec. 10.

Soyuz rocket
lifts off, carrying
US, Russian and

Malaysian on space
Station mission

@ BAIKONUR, Kazakhstan

A RUSSIAN rocket blasted off
from a launch facility in Kaza-
khstan on Wednesday, carrying
an American, a Russian and a
Malaysian to the international
space station, according to Asso-
ciated Press.

The Soyuz-FG rocket soared
into a darkening sky above the
Kazakh steppe.

Aboard were Peggy Whitson of

Beaconsfield, Iowa, who will be
the first woman to command the
space station, veteran Russian cos-
monaut Yuri Malenchenko, and
Dr. Sheikh Muszaphar Shukor,
the ninth Muslim in space but the

‘first from Malaysia. They will

arrive in two days.

The mission coincides with the
last days of Ramadan, the holy
month when Muslims fast from
dawn until sundown, but
Malaysian clerics decreed ‘that

HARDWARE & PLUM



Sheikh Muszaphar will be excused
from fasting while in space.

His religion also requires that
he face Mecca for prayer — a
direction. that will change as the
spacecraft orbits the Earth — but
clerics decided that the exact loca-
tion matters only for the begin-
ning of the prayer ritual.

Applause broke out among
space officials and other onlookers
at the launch site as the spacecraft
entered orbit. Sheikh Muszaphar’s
parents watched the liftoff from

an observation area, praying and —

in tears.

“I’m happy for my country, for
Russia, for the United States and
everybody,” his father said.

Whitson and Malenchenko will
stay on as the station’s new crew,
replacing cosmonauts Fyodor
Yurchikhin and Oleg Kotov, and
will be joined in October by U.S.
astronaut Daniel Tani, who is
arriving with the space shuttle Dis-
covery.

Tani will replace fellow Ameri-
can Clayton Anderson, who has
been at the station since June.

Sheikh Muszaphar, a 35-year-
old orthopedic surgeon, is to spend
about 10 days on the station, per-
forming experiments involving dis-
eases and the effects of micro-
gravity and space radiation on cells
and genes.

On. Tuesday, he told reporters
that his trip will be an inspiration
for his southeast Asian nation as
well as to other Muslims all over
the world.

“It’s a small step for me, but a
great leap for the Malaysian peo-
ple,” he said, paraphrasing
Neil Armstrong’s famous words
after the Apollo landing on the
moon,

Crawford) led the deuce of clubs.

Declarer followed low from
dummy, losing to East’s king, where-
upon Crawford returned the king of
spades! This sensational play proved
to bea killer. Declarer now had to go
down one, losing three spade tricks, a
club and a diamond. At trick two,
Crawford had played the only card in
his hand that could defeat the con-
tract. Had he led any other spade,
declarer would have made four
notrump.

What inspired Crawford to play
the king of spades seemingly from
out of the blue? Actually, it was an
easy play; he had a sure thing going
for him regardless of who had the
queen of spades.

The clue that led to the spade
return came from both the bidding
and the opening lead. West’s deuce-

of-clubs lead, indicating a four-card

suit, marked declarer with three
clubs. Furthermore, systemically,
South’s bidding guaranteed five
hearts and four diamonds (or, possi-
bly, four hearts and five diamonds).
This left South with at most one
spade.

The king-of-spades return was
therefore sure to work out success-
fully regardless of South’s actual
spade holding. That his singleton

‘spade happened to be the queen

served merely to dramatize the cor-
rectness.of Crawford’s-play-

White mates in seven moves at
latest; against any defence (by
Karol Piltz). Seven moves? What
is this guy expecting of me?
Calm down, dear solver. Today's
puzzle is much easier than most
shorter problems, Look carefully
at the diagram, and you will
spot a peculiarity. Black has only -
one man, the a7 pawn, able to
make a legal move. Meanwhile,
White's f1 rook looks very
distant from Black's a8 king, but
an offbeat and comical tactical .
sequence secures the mate.
There is effectively just a single
line of play, as all Black’s side
variations lead to faster and -
obvious mates.

THURSDAY,
OCT 77

ARIES — Mar 21/Apr 20
Feeling fizzled out, Aries? It could
be because you pushed yourself too
hard partying in the last few weeks. ©
Take the early part of this year to sit
back and relax.

TAURUS — Apr 21/May 21
Something that seems insurmount-
able is actually much easier to
scale than you think, Taurus.
Think positively and you’ll reach
great heights.

GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21
Think before you speak when you’re
called to intervene in a situation,
Gemini. Though you can offer
words of wisdom, let the other par-
ties do the compromising.

CANCER -— Jun 22/Jul 22
There is success coming your way, you
just need to keep your eyes peeled in
anticipation, Cancer. However, there
are two sides to every coin, and this
good news also brings some bad.

LEO — Jul 23/Aug 23

You sometimes have to lose before
you can win, Leo, and this will
become apparent in the next few
days. Stay the course and you will
come out OK.
VIRGO = Aug 24/Sept 22

If you have all the. answers, Virgo,
why aren’t people constantly asking
your advice? Realize that you can
learn a thing or two from someone
else, especially this week.

LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23.

If you’re in the mood for romance,
Libra, then you'll be justly rewarded.
Now is the time to spend quality time
‘with that special person in your life
because soon you'll be busier than ever.
SCORPIO - Oct 24/Noy 22
Quiet comtemplation is the key this
week, Scorpio. Mull over all of
your problems and you’ll soon find
that you have the solutions right at
your fingertips.

SAGITTARIUS = Nov 23/Dec 21
Silence can be deafening, especially
when you’re awaiting an outcome to
a sticky situation, Sagittarius. All
you can do is-be patient and trust that
things will work out.

CAPRICORN — Dec 22/Jan 20
A financial folly leaves you coming up
short, Capricorn. It’s time -to buckle
down and stretch those dollars as far as
they can go. Otherwise, you could end
up ina pickle by mid year.

AQUARIUS — Jan 21/Feb 18

| Why wrestle with a concern alone
when you have loved ones you can
trust to assist you, Aquarius? Put
some of your worries in another per-
'son’s hands.

PISCES — Feb 19/Mar20

You will find hidden meanings in
the most mundane things, Pisces.
The trouble will be figuring out
what the big message is.

@ By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

TRADE unions and the
labour movement are seeking
clarifications to the Standard
Hours of Work section in the
Employment Act, a leading
unionist told The ‘Tribune yes-
terday, believing the way the
law is currently worded creates
a “misinterpretation” when it
comes to the hours worked by
managerial and supervisory statf
employed by Bahamian com-
panies.

Obie Ferguson, a labour
lawyer and the Trades Union
Congress (TUC) president, said
there were discrepancies
between Section 8, Part 2 and
Section 8, Subsection 4 of the
Employment Act that gave rise
to “misinterpretations” by
employers of how the Standard
Hours of Work applied to man-
agerial/supervisory employees.

- Unions seek Standard °
ork Hours reforms |

¢ Want Act clarified to state managers/supervisors have
40-hour week, and get ‘time off in lieu of pay’ for excess

° TUC president says lunch hout’s inclusion in 40 hours,
ability to file unfair dismissal action for termination related to
conduct and performance key reforms sought

e Wants employer definition clarified to aid legal actions
against major companies |



Mr Ferguson said Section 8,
Part 2 stated that no Bahamian
worker - whether a manager or
line worker - should work more
than 40 hours per week. Yet
Section 8, Subsection 4 was
being interpreted as,saying the
40-hour work week or Standard
Hours of Work “does not apply
to those who held superviso-

ry/managerial positions”.

Mr Ferguson added: “The
employers are suggesting that the
40 hours does not apply to man-
agerial workers. They have to
work as many hours as necessary.

“This is not what Part 2 or
Section 8 is saying. Every work-
er is required to work 40 hours,
and the Act was intended to

exempt managerial and super-
visory workers from overtime
and overtime pay.

“That was the intention, but —

some employers are reading it
as if it means the 40 hours do
not apply to managerial or
supervisory workers.

Tribunal needs ability

to enforce judgments

@ By NEIL HARTNELL

THE Industrial Tribunal
must be given the ability to
enforce its own judgments, a
trade union leader told The

Tribune yesterday,.as “it .
defeats the purpose” if workers:

have to go to the Supreme

_ Court to obtain the fruits of

verdicts they have won against
employers. ree

Obie Ferguson, the Trades
Union Congress (TUC) presi-
dent, said: “We would like for
the Industrial Tribunal to
enforce its own judgments.
That’s a very vexing area.

“Tf the. Tribunal makes a find-
ing and the employer refuses to
pay, the worker is stymied and

has to got to the Supreme Court
to enforce the judgment. That
defeats the purpose.”

Mr Ferguson said the Indus-
trial Tribunal should be a court
of finality, with the right for par-
ties to appeal its verdicts all the
way up the court structure.

Currently, if employers
refused to abide by the Indus-
trial Tribunal’s rulings, employ-

ees were faced with having to
file the same ‘court papers and

documents with the Supreme;
Court in a bid to have judg- :

ments enforced -.a process that
adds time and costs for workers.

“You have to go to the
Supreme Court to get the judge-

ment enforced, and to me it.

defeats the purpose,” Mr Fer-
guson added. amet fa

@ By NEIL HARTNELL :
Tribune Business Editor

THE Trade Commission’s
chairman said yesterday that it

was “hard to escape the con-:
_ clusion” that the Bahamas had

‘dropped the ball’ on the Eco-
nomic Partnership Agreement
(EPA) talks with the European
Union (EUV), adding that there

‘was too little time to prepare

the private sector’s position on
it with less-than three months
left before the treaty is due to
take effect,

John Delaney, the former
FNM Senator and Higgs &
Johnson managing partner, said
the Trade Commission’s “big

priority” and the “bigger pic-.

ture issue” was the Bahamas
move to accede to full mem-
bership in the World Trade
Organisation (WTO), although
the EPA was the trade issue
with “the shortest fuse”.

Mr Delaney said the WTO
was the “common denomina-
tor” that underpinned and over-
shadowed all trade agreements,
and he understood that the
Bahamas’ accession to full
membership in the body that
sets and administers the rules

- of global trade may happen

“within the next five years” -
before the FNM government’s
term in office ends.

When asked whether the
Trade Commission had enough
time between now and Decem-
ber 31, 2007,. when the EPA
between the EU and 77-mem-
ber African, Pacific and
Caribbean (ACP) group of
nations is supposed to take
effect, to prepare a position on
what the Bahamas should do
for the Government, Mr
Delaney replied: “I don’t see
how it can be said we have a
reasonable period of time
between now and the end of the
year.”

When asked whether the
Bahamas had ‘dropped the ball’

im
J

WTO accession
may happen
‘within next
five years’



PLO Rime retiieay

on the EPA negotiations and
done too little, too late to adopt
a position and prepare for it,
Mr Delaney said: “That con-
clusion is hard to escape.........

, “We are where we are, a cou-
ple of months from the target
date for signing. We have to
acknowledge that the EPA is
not something that has been
sprung on the Bahamas. It
would have been on our plate
for many years, but the Trade
Commission only now has to
look at it. 1 am advised that no
work has been done on this by

any previous Trade Commis--

sion.”

TC’s ‘flagship’
Cyber World |

_ store set for
Bay Street

@ By NEIL HARTNELL

. Tribune Business Editor

THE Bahamas Telecom-
munications Company (BTC)

‘is hoping to set up its second

full-service Cyber World store
in, the former Mike’s Shoe
Store outlet on Bay. Street by
year-end, the “flagship” outlet
targeting cruise passengers
and land-based tourists seek-
ing to ‘roam’ and use their cell
phones in the Bahamas.
*Marlon Johnson, BTC’s
vice-president of marketing

_ and sales, confirmed to The.

Tribune yesterday that the
state-owned telecommunica-
tions provider was planning
to open the Bay Street Cyber
World store, the second full

_ service one after the Mall at

Marathon, to serve Bahami-°
ans who worked and
shopped in downtown Nas-
sau.

He said: “We’re preparing
to establish a Cyber World -
store in the former Mike’s
Shoe Store. If you drive past,
you can see-the BTC adver-
tisements in the windows.

“It will be our second full-
service Cyber World store |
after the Mall at Marathon.
We hope to establish it before
the end of the year. This one
is intended to be our-flagship
store.” ;

: .. Mr Johnson said it would
- feature a'roaming department, —

which would deal with any
issues experienced by
Bahamians when attempting
to use their cell phones
abroad, and problems experi-
enced by tourists and foreign
businessmen here.

The marketing depart-
ment would also have per-
sonnel at the Bay Street
store, Mr Johnson said, and
the BTC store would pro-
vide “a full range of ser-
vices” such as bill paying,
phone cards, cell phones and
SIM cards, and help with
technical inquiries.

When asked why BTC had
chosen Bay Street as the.




¢ Move aims to
provide easy access
to roaming services
for cruise passengers
and tourists

¢ Opening could
revitalise retail area
East of Bay Street,
with Bristol Cellars
also said to be

cept store e



“flagship” location, Mr John-

son said: “It’s still very much,
a commercial centre. There’s
- still quite a lot of commer-)
cial activity and corporate:

activity on Bay Street, so we
will have a lot of walk-in traf-

fic from persons who work

and shop in the downtown
Nassau area.

“Roaming traffic accounts
for quite a bit of BTC’s rev-
enue streams, so we wanted
to have a venue close to
Prince George’s Wharf where
cruise-based and land-based
tourists could have easy access
to BTC, have their questions
addressed, and provided with
full access to BTC’s roaming
capabilities.”

| Location

Mr Johnson added: “Bay
Stieet is still a very critical

part of what happens com- -

mercially in the country, and

. in New Providence, so there

is keen interest in that part
of Bay Street becoming a
thriving commercial, retail
and cultural hub in New
Providence.” ,

THE TRIBUNE



BUSINESS

Going direct

I: you find that starting a
business from scratch is
too much for you, then direct
selling is a tried and tested way
to get into business. However,

- you will need to be cautious.
Just like buying a franchise, .

there are several steps you need

to consider to make this process.

as risk-free as possible.

Direct selling is where a man-
ufacturer cuts out the retailer
and sells direct to the customer
through independent sales peo-

ple. It is a business that suits |

motivated, outgoing people,
who enjoy selling and want to

-work from home full or part-

time. Many products are sold

' this way, such as cosmetics,

household products, clothing,
adult products, nutritional and
dietary products, often on a par-
ty plan basis. If you have a
good network of people that

you can sell to, this system may >

be suitable for you.

The level of support can also
be high, where your sales and
marketing materials, and sales
pitches, are prepared for you,
making it easier for you to start
selling straight away.

There are three methods of
direct selling that you need to
be aware of.

The first method is selling
door-to-door through cold call-
ing. This is where you trudge
the streets, knock on peoples'
doors, make a presentation and
try to get an order, or leave a
catalogue and come back later
to try and pick up a sale. People
are far less likely now to let you
into their homes.

The second method is
through direct selling to your
network of contacts, such as
friends, family, neighbours,
church groups, Parent-Teacher
Associations(PTAs), schools,
clubs. If you have a wide vari-

a

ety of contacts, then this may

be the way for you. Unlike cold
calling, you would work your
contact list, ask for referrals,
network, market yourself
through advertising and PR to
generate interested leads.

The third way of direct selling



Direct selling
is wherea |
manufacturer
cuts out the
retailer and sells
direct to the
customer
through
independent
sales people.



is through the tried and tested
party plan method, which was
perfected by Tupperware and
Avon. You arrange a party and
demonstrate the goods in the
hope that people buy there and
then, or give you an order for
fulfillment. Again, this method
would suit you if you have a
wide network of contacts,



S o, what is the process for
becoming a direct sales-
person?

The first step is Choosing a
Product Line. Choose some-
thing that you would personally
use, as this should make it easi-
er to sell to others. Home prod-
ucts, jewellery and cosmetics
are usually a hit with others,
particularly if you can offer the
products at good prices and
people can choose them in the
comfort of your home.

The second step is Doing
Some Research. Research the
various companies that sell the
products you are interested in.
Try the Internet or specialist
publications that offer business
opportunities. Check the
forums. The Internet is a good
place where people post their
review on companies and prod-
uct lines. Request their infor-
mation packs, read the sales lit-
erature carefully and prepare a
shortlist.

The third step is Comparing

the Shortlisted Companies. The
questions you will need to ask
yourself at this stage are: How
long has the company been in
business for? What independent
reviews are there on the com-
pany, its products and its work-
ing practices? Is it a product
that you would use yourself?

...to ae public information session on the plans for
developing a world-class airport in the Bahamas. The
Nassau Airport Development Company (NAD) is holding
this meeting at Holy Trinity Activities Centre, Trinity Way,
Stapledon Gardens on the 18" of October 2007, starting at

7:00 pm. Opie to be covered will include:

The condition of existing facilities and projections for

future growth

Space and passenger flows

The design and scope of the project

The layout of the aprons, gates, terminals, roads and

Innovations, including gardens, swing gates, separation

of incoming

and outgoing passengers and sustainable design

sense of place,

and your input on how this should be achieved

Please come out to listen to our presentation, ask
questions and make your views known. We welcome

Does it do the job it is supposed
to do? Is it fairly priced and of
good quality? What are your
respective obligations, and what
is the company going to do for
you? What training do they pro-
vide? Be wary of companies
that require high up front pay-
ments. without explaining ade-
quately what you are going to
get from them in return. Avoid
companies that promise you
Get Rich Schemes, and those
that request regular payments

from you irrespective of

ment required is; when you

The fifth step is Calling or

and find out how many resellers
are in your territory? Who is
the coiapetition? What ongo-

The sixth step is Reviewing
the Information. Decide which
one meets your needs, whether
the proposition stacks up, and
whether it is worth the initial fee.

The last step is Carrying out
Market Research. Check out
who else is out there selling to
your contacts. If there is no one
else, and the product meets a
need, then you are good to go.

Becoming a direct sales per-

_ son is a process that requires as

much care as setting up a busi-
ness. Don't be an antipreneur

_and ignore this proven way of

hard sell

generating income. There are
many products out there. So, in

en steps above to reduce your

ment that Tttle insurance is crit-
ical in jurisdictions such as the
Bahamas, where the issue of
unregistered land had led to
claims challenging “good root
of title” - a continuous chain of
legally valid transfers going
back at least 30 years. If proven,
these can render title defective.

Without a secure policy a
purchaser might be liable for

By purchasing title insurance,
buyers will also avoid the neces-

so reducing overall costs in pur-

First Bahamas said title insur-
ance was not a substitute for a
complete title search and exam-
ination of the public records in
order to determine a seller’s
right to transfer property own-
ership.

Instead, it was a single premi-

ahamian title
insurance agency
to give protection

that a title search failed to reveal.

First Bahamas’ administra-
tive officer, Naurel E Watkins,
said the most common faults
overlooked by a title search
include mistakes in the record-
ing of legal documents, forged
documents and undisclosed
heirs with interest in the prop-
erty.

“Title insurance is the next
step in the evolutionary process
of land title assurance,” she
said, “and an added line of
defence against any challenge
to an individual’s interest in his
or her property. We are excited
to be able to provide this qual-
ity service to our clients though
our affiliation with Lawyers
Title, whose reputation for
financial strength and an ability
to deliver smooth and timely
closings is renowned.”

First Bahamas identifies and
eliminates risks that could
endanger an individual’s right
to ownership. Unlike general,
health or life insurance policies,
which require monthly premi-
ums, title insurance generates
a one-time premium, after
which the insurer assumes com-
plete financial responsibility for
the defence of title defects
raised against the insured’s
property.

First Bahamas will offer own-
er’s policies, which endure for as
long as an individual or his or
her heirs have an interest in the
property.

It will also offer policies for
lenders that indemnify in the
event that the title defect
impacts the lender’s ability to
enforce its default remedies on
a property.

THE TRIBUNE.

| a
Freeport can be land

reform ‘guinea pig’

Mi By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

FREEPORT could be “used
as a guinea pig” if the Bahamas
moves to a Title Registration
System or parcel-based land

recording system, an attorney -

has Suggested, hitting out at the
smany layers of unnecessary,
repetitive regulations” that
hamper Bahamian-based real
estate transactions.

Fred Smith, a Freeport-based

partner in Callenders & Co, said

the fact that every single par-.

~~ cel of land within the 230 square
mile Grand Bahama Port

Authority (GB PA) area had .

_been surveyed and mapped
made the city an ideal testing
ground if the Government fol-
lowed consultants’ recommen-
dations to alter the land title
deeds recording and registra-
tion system.

Saying he had been practicing
conveyancing and ntortgage law

in Freeport for 30 years, Mr .

Smith said of the reforms pro-
posed by consultants Interna-
tional Land Systems (ILS): “I
am in complete agreement with
the proposal to convert to a
Title Registration system as
opposed to the archaic, feudal
conveyancing we now endure.

“Freeport stands in a unique
position to the rest of the
Bahamas. Everything stems
from 1955. We stand uniquely
poised to adopt and effect a par-
cel-based land registration sys-
tem.”

Mr Smith said that post-1955
and the Hawksbill Creek
Agreement, “every single parcel
of land in the Port area” was
surveyed and now lies in the
databases of the Grand Bahama
Port Authority (GBPA), Grand
Bahama Development Compa-
ny (Devco) and development
companies such as Grand
Bahamian Hills, Yorkshire
Development. Company,
Tamarind and Princess Realty.

As a result, it would be rela-
tively simple to introduce a par-
cel-based land registration and
indexing system in Freeport, as
the surveying and mapping had
already been done.

Weaknesses in the land
deeds recording system are
costing the private sector $230
million per year, ILS consul-
tants have estimated, prompt-
ing recommendations that the
Bahamas move to comprehen-
sively reform the Registry by
either introducing a Parcel-
based Index system or Title
Registration system.

Mr Smith told The Tribune
that real estate transactions in
the Bahamas often “took
months” to close, due to title
issues coupled with govern-

ment red tape and bureaucra-

cy. :

He added: “There are so
many layers of unnecessary,
- repetitive regulatory
approvals.” With most real
estate transactions in Freeport
involving a foreign purchaser
or seller, among the required
approvals were exchange con-
trol permission from the Cen-
tral Bank of the Bahamas; the

Investments Board (Cabinet) |












TEMP?

call 35¢





Fred Smith

Certificate of Registration for
foreign buyers; and meeting
the Know Your Customer
(KYC) provisions of the Finan-
cial Transactions Reporting

Act (FTRA).

In addition, Mr Smith said
that builders and investors in
Freeport “have to get approval

from the Port Authority to

transfer approved premises.
from their Port Authority
licence”.

On the title side, Mr Smith
said many title search compa-
nies were “absolving them-
selves of all liability” for rec-
ommendations based on
records and deeds lodged with
the public land registry at the
Registrar General’s Depart-
ment. This was because “some-
times the files in which title is
held cannot be found”.

Based on the ILS recom-
mendations, Mr Smith said:
“The opportunity exists for
efficiency and speed in con-
veyancing transactions. Cur-
rently, real estate agents are
starving because it takes six
months for transactions to
close, transaction lawyers are
delayed in getting their fees
and, most importantly, buyers
and sellers are frustrated.

“I would recommend to the
Government that the Land
Reform Commission be insti-
tuted with the task of working
towards developing a more
efficient system and Freeport

could be used as a guinea pig.”

Outlining the reform options
available for the Bahamas, ILS
said one was to "do nothing",
apart from "maybe cleaning
up the statutory language"
used in title and conveyancing
documents to make them more
easily understood by ordinary
Bahamians. .

Among the advantages of
this approach, he explained,
was that the well-known pre-
sent system, with its under-

stood responsibilities and lia- -

bilities, would be maintained.



The Bahamas would also
avoid the need for any legisla-
tive changes. Yet maintaining
the status quo where the deeds
recording system was con-
cerned, ILS said, would con-
tinue to cost the Bahamian pri-

‘vate sector - attorneys who

specialize in conveyancing, plus
realtors, title searchers and
their clients - some $230 mil-
lion per year.

. Even if the Bahamas kept
the present deeds recording
system, ILS suggested that it
should at least move away
from a process that, in the first
instance, used name indexing
and the names of persons
involved in real estate trans-
actions to find the relevant
documents: The existing
process also uses dates, and the
chronological order in which
deeds were filed, to help title
searchers and attorneys find
documents.

ILS said that instead, one
option open to the Bahamas
was to move toa land parcels
indexing system, with the third
and final option being for the
Bahamas to adopt wholesale
reform by scrapping the deeds
recording system and switch-
ing to a Title Registration Sys-
tem.

This would ultimately
involve bona fide Bahamian
property and title owners being
issued with a Certificate of
Title that disclosed and con-
tained all information on their
property, including encum-
brances such as mortgages and
easements.

The advantage of such a sys-
tem was that it provided more
certainty for property owners
and title holders than the pre-
sent system, increasing securi-
ty of tenure.

The downside, though, was
that it would require changes
in Bahamian statutory law and
be far more expensive for the
Government to operate and
maintain.

. THE total number, of mort-
gages issued in the Bahamas
slowed by 5.8 per cent, narrowing
to $127.8 millicn during the 2007
second quarter as economic
growth slowed compared to last
year, the Central Bank of the
Bahamas revealed yesterday.

According to its review of
domestic economic developments
for the 2007 second quarter of
the year, both commercial and
residential mortgages issued dur-
ing the period declined by LO per
cent and 5 per cent.

Mortgages issued

% decline

The number of mortgage com-
mitments for new construction
and repairs fell by 29.9 per cent to
260, and the corresponding val-
ue by 34.2 per cent to $34 mil-
lion. Growth in outstanding mort-
gages declined, slackening to 12.5
per cent from 17 per cent.

The Central Bank said the
Bahamian economy “expanded
at a more moderate pace” when
compared to 2006, due largely to
a weakened tourism performance
affected by the Western Travel
Hemisphere Initiative (WHTI).
Figures showed that total visitor
arrivals declined by 12.1 per cent
to 1.15 million, with both air and

sea visitors falling by 8.8 per cent
and 13.8 per cent at 0.41 million
and 0.74 million respectively.
The decline was mainly attrib-
uted to a cruise decline of 15.6 per
cent in Grand Bahama, while New
Providence was off by 7.6 and the
Family Islands by 19.3 per cent.
The hotel sector was able to
benefit from a 6.6 per cent appre-
ciation in hotel revenues to $118.6

‘million, due to a 12.6 per cent

hike in average room rates,
which offset the 5.3 per cent
downturn in rooms sold. The out-
run reflected improvements in the
New Providence market, where
overall room revenues expanded
by 8.5 per cent in contrast to
declines in revenues for Grand
Bahama by 1.1 per cent, and the
Family Islands by 2.1 per cent.

The economy was also impact-
ed by reduced growth in con-
sumer demand and tempered for-
eign investment flows.

External current account devel-
opments indicated a marginally
lower deficit, benefiting from a
reduction in the merchandise
trade deficit, and an improved sur-
plus on the services account. How-
ever, the Central Bank said lower
foreign investment-related inflows
led to a narrowing of the capital
and financial account surplus.

Central Bank statistics indicat-.
ed that quarterly consumer price
inflation, as measured by changes
in the average retail price index,
advanced to 2.2 per cent from 1.7 _
per cent in the previous year. The
largest cost increases were regis-
tered for furniture and house-
hold operations, 5.3 per cent,
food and beverages, 4.15 per cent
sand transport and communica-
tion, 3.2 per cent.

There was also an increase in
average consumer prices, which
firmed by 0.8 per cent to 2:4 per
cent over the previous year,
reflecting the continuing effects of
higher global fuel and commodity
prices.

The capital and financial
account surplus contracted by an
estimated $36.8 million to $98
million, due partly to a slowdown
in net direct investment inflows
by $8.9 million to $91.7 million.

‘Additionally, other net invest-

ments receipts weakened to $26.3
million from $61 million last year.

THE TRIBUNE





Trade unions seeking Work

FROM page one

“We're going to be seeking
some clarification to that. That’s
very important. We cannot pass
laws that are discriminatory in
nature.”

Mr Ferguson said the Fair
Labour Standards Act, which
was replaced by the Employ-
ment Act, made no distinction
between managerial workers
and line workers when it came
to the Standard Hours or Work,
all allowed to work a maximum
number of hours per week.

The TUC president agreed
that managerial workers should
not receive overtime pay, but
those who “worked in excess of
40 hours per week should be

given time off in lieu of pay”.
“The Standard Hours of
Work must be applied to all
workers, whether they are man-
agers, supervisors or line work-
ers,” Mr Ferguson added.
“The way it was drafted does
leave room for misunderstand-
ing, and that’s one of the rec-
ommendations we certainly are
going to be pursuing.”
Employer and trade unions
recommendations for reform-
ing and amending the Employ-
ment Act are due to be dis-
cussed: at an upcoming October
22 TriFor conference with the
Government.
Mr Ferguson said the trade
unions and labour movement

also wanted to grounds on

Legal Notice

which a worker could bring a

lawsuit for unfair dismissal
broadened in similar fashion to
the UK, and extended beyond
trade union activities, materni-
ty and redundancy.

“If you’re terminated for oth-
er reasons, you cannot bring an
action for unfair dismissal. That
cannot be right,” Mr Ferguson
added. “If you’re terminated for
conduct and performance on
the job, or whatever else, you
should be able to bring an
action for unfair. dismissal.

“Most dismissals concern
matters of performance and
conduct.: These are the major
issues that should be part of the
unfair dismissal provision, and
we would want that to be
looked at.”

The unions are also seeking
to reopen and revisit the issue
of lunch hours and lunch pay,
arguing that a worker’s lunch

hour was included in the eight-
hour working day. However,
some employers were treating
the lunch hour as being exclud-
ed from the eight hours or
work, something Mr Ferguson
said went against the intent of
the Employment Act.

“A substantial number of
employers are practicing as if it
is eight hours of actual work,
excluding lunch. So it is a 45-
hour day, not 40 hours, and that
causes problems for those work-
ers who cannot leave their
employer’s premises,” Mr Fer-
guson said. “That is an area we
have had some difficulty with.”

The TUC president added
that the combined trade union
movement would also press for
a much stricter definition of the
term ‘employer’ in the Employ-
ment Act, believing “the defin-
ition should be so structured
that the employee always knows

who the employer is”.
Mr Ferguson explained they

were seeking this because of

past problems encountered
when workers brought cases
against resorts and multina-
tional companies operating in
the Bahamas, who operated
through complex corporate and
. holding structures involving a
variety of companies. With
major resort developments,
developers often form separate
companies to hold or own dif-
terent parts of the project, such
as the marina, golf course and
hotel.

Mr Ferguson said that while

Share

one company’s name may
appear on the worker’s pay
cheque and National Insurance
Board (NIB) contributions, if
an industrial dispute was filed it
was often found that he was
employed by an entirely differ-
ent company

(his created a “serious prob-
lem” if the case ever went to
court, Mr Ferguson added, as
many employees were unaware
of the “intricacies” of their
employer's corporate structure.

If the case was filed against
the wrong company, an entity
not employing the worker, Mr
Ferguson said the employer’s
attorney could make a legiti-
mate legal point that the action
was against the wrong firm and
should be thrown out.

Mr Ferguson added that the
trade unions aiso wanted the

BTC’s ‘flagship’ Cyber World
store set for Bay Street

FROM page one

The area where the
BTC flagship outlet is
being located, east of the
Bay Street/East Street
junction, is seen by many
as being something of a
deprived, rundown com-
mercial and retail area out
of which many. businesses
have moved or closed
down. Currently, the main
Bay Street retailing land-

mark east of that road_

junction is Hoffer Sport.
Yet the arrival of the
BTC flagship ‘store could
attract additional con-
sumer and retail traffic to
that part of Bay Street,
helping to revive it in con-

BUSINESS
Trade Commission’s chair:
conclusion that Bahamas

mers International, it had to
be mindful of the EPA’s

; implications for other sectors

of the Bahamian economy
and safeguard those. To do
so, they are arguing, will take
much consideration and more
time.

-The Bahamas was a ser-
vices-based economy, Mr
Delaney said, and as the EPA
dealt with services, invest-
ments and competition, the
wider implications had to be
accounted for.

The EPA also deals with
issues such as subsidies, anti-
dumping, rules of origin and
countervailing duties. Signing
on could impact the National

Investment Policy by opening

up areas of the economy tra-
ditionally reserved for
Bahamian ownership to Euro-
pean firms, and opening up
this market to European
work,

EU. They would like to see
some kind of arrangement
that would safeguard their
interests.”

The fisheries industry is
concerned that $60 million
worth of exports to the EU,
chiefly France, could be jeop-
ardised by the loss of duty-
free access that could result
from failing to sign on to the
EPA. This could result in
their products being exposed
to the ‘Most Favoured
Nation’ tariffs, making craw-
fish and other Bahamian
seafood exports uncompeti-
tive on price.

' However, Mr Delaney said
the EPA had not been dis-
cussed widely among the
Bahamian private sector, and

Minisexy of Lducation
Youths, Spats and Cultare

before the Trade Commission
could provide a position on it
for government policymakers,
its members first needed to
understand what the EPA
involved themselves.

Priority

With the WTO underpin-
ning and driving the EPA,
forcing its birth to replace
Cotonou, Mr Delaney said:
“The big priority for us are
matters relating to the WTO
in a big sense. It is pretty much
the trading regime through-
out the world. The Bahamas is
part of it, but a policy deci-
sion has already been made
that it is in the interests of the

Bahamas to join the WTO.
We have to come to grips with
that.”

Mr Delaney said _ the
Bahamas had been working
on the WTO accession process
for more than five years, since
the latter part of the first
Ingraham administration.

“IT am almost made to
understand that some time
within the next five years, all
the work may be done and
accession may take place,” Mr
Delaney added.

“The WTO regime is a com;

-mon denominator across the

world. From the big picture
perspective, the WTO is the
most important from the basic
point of view of understanding
the global landscape.”

Stocks trade is mixed
and Boeing hurt Dow

@ By TIM PARADIS
AP Business Writer

NEW YORK — Wall Street
stumbled through a lopsided
session Wednesday, closing
mixed as profit warnings and
news from blue chip names
Alcoa Inc. and Boeing Co.
dragged down the Dow Jones
industrial average but largely
spared technology stocks.

A pullback was to be expect-
ed after the Dow and the Stan-
dard & Poor’s 500 index: fin-
ished at new highs Tuesday
amid enthusiasm over com-
ments from Federal Reserve
policymakers about interest
rates, but corporate news
appeared to hasten Wednes-
day’s slide.

Declines by Dow components

Boeing and Alcoa, among oth-
ers, hurt the 30-stock index.
Meanwhile, International Paper
Co. and Chevron Corp. moved
lower on profit news.

With investors thumbing
through fresh quarterly results
and company news, the latest
economic readings did little to
dislodge the dichotomy between
blue chips and tech stocks. A
report showed inventories
among U.S. wholesalers ticked
up in August, while a trade
group for real estate agents
warned the drop in sales of
existing homes this year will be
steeper than had been expected.

The stock market’s uneven
but still relatively calm trading
Wednesday followed the surge
the day before that was sparked

the Fed’s last meeting. Wall
Street initially was ebullient that
the Fed didn’t appear to rule
out further rate cuts but, on
reflection, some investors
seemed to be questioning
whether that response was a lit-
tle too optimistic.

“People are looking back-
ward at what the Fed was dis-
cussing to try and discern
whether or not we’re in a reces-
sion,” said Kim Caughey, equi-
ty research analyst at Fort Pitt
Capital Group. “Looking in the
rearview mirror isn’t going to
give us that clarity because its
history, so instead I’m really
looking forward to what corpo-
rate earnings will show.” .

According to preliminary cal-
culations, the Dow fell 85.84, or
0.61 percent, to 14,078.69 after

rising 120 points on Tuesday.

Broader stock indicators were
mixed. The S&P 500 fell 2.68, or
0.17 percent, to 1,562.47, and
the technology-laden Nasdaq
composite index rose 7.70, or
0.27 percent, to 2,811.61.

Bonds

Bond prices were little
changed. The yield on the
benchmark 10-year Treasury
note was unchanged at 4.65 per-
cent, compared with late Tues-
day. The dollar was mixed
against other major currencies,
while gold prices rose.

Light, sweet crude rose $1.04
