DEFENCE Force officers
will be leaving for Cat Island
today to assist in pumping up
to 13 feet of water from settle-
ments that a number of fami-
lies have been forced to evacu-
ate. ‘
Prime Minister Hubert Ingra-
ham, with Works Minister Earl
Deveaux, went to Cat Island,
Long Island, and Exuma yes-
terday to assess the damage
from Tropical Storm Noel.

In Cat Island, in the settle-
ment of Alligator Bay, some six
families have had to be evacu-
ated due — in some instances
— to almost 13 feet of water
settling around their homes.

Much needed drinking water,
also will be flown into the island
today as medical officers on the
ground report that the local
drinking water has been conta-
minated. Residents are advised
to boil their water before using
it.

Also due to the flooding, the
settlements of Devil’s Point,
McQueen’s, Hawks Nest, and
Port Howe are now completely
cut off from the rest of the
island.

‘As a result, the Defence

Force has been called in to
assist with the pumping of water
from the roads to make certain
these areas, which are also with-
out electricity, are again acces-
‘sible: :

In Long Island, the Dead-
man’s Cay airport remained
flooded yesterday. Only a small
portion at the northern end was
free of water. The terminal and
surrounding acreage were com-

' pletely underwater.

In the settlement of Simm’s,
residents had to use boats to get
out of their homes as water had
settled up to 10 feet in some
areas.

Prime Minister Ingraham and
Minister Deveaux were making
an assessment of the area to
ensure that the necessary
resources are made available to
those persons in need.

On the island of Exuma, res-
idents fared much better by
comparison with some flooding
of the golf courses at the Four
Season Resort and residential
areas in and around the island’s
capital, George Town.

One government complex in
particular was under water —
blocking access to it from every
angle. However, for the most

_part, the island seemed to have

been spared in terms of dam-
age to crops, homes, and infra-
structure.

RESIDENTS throughout the capital may
experience a temporary lull in garbage collec-
tion as the Department of Environmental Health
attempts to catch up on the backlog of trash left
on collection routes because of Tropical Storm
Noel.

The department plans to make an “agegres-
sive” effort over the weekend to return to the
normal collection schedule that was disrupted
as Noel, the deadliest storm of the 2007 Atlantic
season, ripped through the Caribbean earlier in
the week. ;

“All of our offices have been alerted to the
need for us to try to be as vigilant as we can be
and as aggressive with the collection, so hopefully
if it doesn’t rain (over the weekend) we will be on
schedule,” Melanie McKenzie, Director of Envi-
ronmental Health, told The Tribune during a

Residents in Pinewood Gardens and Nassau
Village — communities that reportedly suffered
at least two.feet of flooding Thursday night from

Noel’s torrential rain — may have to wait a little
longer for garbage collection as sanitation work-
ers assess water levels in those areas.

“The flooded areas are going to be of concern
primarily because we can’t collect (from) the
flooded areas because as you know our trucks
will displace a great deal of water and we don’t
want to disadvantage the persons in those com-
munities any further. However, we are going to
have to work out some way as the water drains
away to pick (the garbage) up.”

Yesterday morning sanitation workers were
dispatched to assess the flooding throughout
New Providence to determine which neighbour-
hoods they could collect waste from without dis-
placing water in the flooded areas, Ms McKenzie
told The Tribune.

Many residents have voiced complaints about
the “irregularity” of garbage collection, calling for
the Department to increase its efforts. While
noting some neighbourhoods experience collec-
tion “like clockwork”, Ms McKenzie said the

trucks have been placed on a rush order which
should be shipped in two or three instalments by

Undocumented
immigrant
detained after
testifying in case

@ MIAMI

AN UNDOCUMENTED day
laborer was detained after he tes-
tified in court against a man
accused of attacking him, a move
denounced Friday by immigrant
rights groups, according to Asso-
ciated Press.

Carlos Cruz Gallego, a Colom-

bian immigrant, was taken into
custody at his Miami home short-
ly after he left the stand Thurs-
day.

“This is a horrible precedent
that’s set,” said Jonathan Fried,
executive director for WeCount!,
a Social justice organization.

Gallego’s detention sends a
message to illegal immigrants that
“if they’re a victim of crime, they
can’t testify,” Fried said, “And
that’s going to hurt the whole
community.”

Brooke Greco, an attorney
with the Florida Immigrant Advo-
cacy Center, argued that Gallego
has temporary legal status while
his visa application is pending.
Gallego was eligible for a “U”
visa, given to victims of violent
crime who cooperate with author-
ities. The alleged attack took
place in November 2006.

But an official with U.S. Immi-
gration and Customs Enforce-
ment said Gallego was arrested
in March for overstaying his orig-
inal nonimmigrant visa, and was
granted bond for the sole purpose
of testifying in the assault case.

Gallego was detained after his
testimony because the state attor-
ney’s office said they no longer
needed him for the trial, according
to an ICE official familiar with
the case.

92-year-old

‘can’t recall
worse weather’

in Rum Cay

RETIRED seamstress Adyilda Scavella can’t recall worse weath

erin Rum Cay in all her 92 years.

The tiny island’s oldest resident couldn’t believe her eyes when

Tropical Storm Noel passed over

Nearly every house in Rum C ay *s main settlement — Port Nel-
son — was flooded. And:the island’s airport was left under two feet

of water.

Mrs Scavella yesterday left all her doors and windows open to air

her waterlogged home.

Her daughter, Delores Wilson, said: “It rained hard all night. The
thunder and lightning were terrible. It was very frightening.

“My mother, who was born here
anything like it in all that time.”

92 years ago, can’t remember

At The Mangrove, a nearby sub-division, homes were left strand

ed by floor water.

Rum Cay’s young men were yesterday helping the clean-up
operation throughout the community.
Roads remained flooded, but by last night water levels were

beginning to fall.

Tropical Storm Noel, which

passed to the northeast of the

Kirk James, of the Grand

reported that the island got only
0.14 inches of rain from the
storm.

“We got very few feeder
bands and experienced yery
light showers,” he said.

Schools throughout the island

Centre in Freeport was report-

edly deactivated on Friday
morning. The Tribune attempt-
ed to call the EOC, but the calls
were, not answered.

The Maurice Moore Primary
School, which was designed to
be a shelter for East End resi-
dents, has also been officially
closed.

Although Grand Bahama was
on the weaker side of the storm,
residents of East End were
expected to experience some
effects from the system as it
passed northeast of the island.

However, there was not
enough deterioration in the
weather to cause concern in that
area of the island.

“We received only light rain
showers and winds, but nothing
to be concerned about,” said
High Rock resident Priscilla
Cooper. ;

Noel, the 14th named storm,
has now been upgraded to hur-

LEON E.

NEW YORK — There’s a phrase that
came into vogue a while back: “having it

B ora couple of years, magazines, news-
papers and TV were full of stories about
superwomen who were doing everything:
working full-time jobs, raising perfect chil-
dren, volunteering at their children’s

in their spare time.

Those women were meant to be an inspi-
ration, but instead they ended up making
everyone else feel inadequate — and prob-
ably having nervous breakdowns them-
selves within a few years.

As someone who is often perceived as

“having it all,” let me just say this outright:
| hate that phrase. The implication is that
every person wants exactly the same thing,
which is completely untrue. You don’t have
io marry the lawyer or doctor, win the U.S.
©pen in tennis and become a CEO all in
ihe same year in order to find success and
happiness.

Blindly striving to have it all is not the
answer:

Having what I call a 360-degree life isn’t
about reaching the top in everything you

. do, it’s about achieving balance. [t;means

Here’s a confession: I was a ates
in my 20s. | badly wanted not only to
achieve but to overachieve — to go fur-
ther, faster and do more than anyone else.
Whatever it took to get ahead in my career,
that’s what I spent time doing. I was really
happy during those years, and honestly
don’t regret a moment of all that hard
work.

Yet today, with a husband of 25 years,
two teenage children and.a floppy-eared
black Lab, I have a keener appreciation
for all the non-work pleasures life can
bring.

I still work very hard and trayel con-

truly away from it. Even if.you’re ambi-

some days. Because the reality is, you’re
going to be a better, more effective employ-
ee if you have a satisfying personal life.
So, how do you define success for your-

Cathie Black on ‘having it all’

self? How do you determine not only what
you want in your life, but what you can
realistically achieve?

One way is by looking at those questions
from a slightly different angle: Maybe you
can have all the things you want — just
not all at the same time. In my case, that
meant focusing mainly on work in my 20s
and 30s and becoming a mother in my 40s.
That choice wouldn’t suit everyone, espe-

cially considering the potential age-related |

complications of getting pregnant after 40,
but it has worked well for me.
Some women want nothing more than to

- stay home with their kids, and some are

dying to get back to work. Most of us fall
somewhere in the middle. The key is to
make the decision that’s right for you — no
matter what anyone else thinks your right
answer should be. So, let’s say you’ve made
the decision that you want both a family
and a career. How can you do it all?

I went back to work within a couple of
weeks of adopting our son, Duffy (we
adopted our daughter, Alison, four years
later). My husband Tom and I both were
comfortable with making the decision to
have me go back to work full-time. I did

‘bring Dutfy with me to a few off-site meet-
ings at. USA Today, with nanny or mother-
- in-law in tow, and to his credit, my boss Al

Neuharth — who had very progressive
ideas about families and work time —
encouraged parents to bring their children
to work on occasion. But even with those
advantages, I remember what a balancing
act it was to raise our kids, work long hours
and do so much travelling at the same time.

It is possible to have a family anda
career, though time and energy are both
finite, so you'll have to make choices and,
sometimes, sacrifices. Feel free to explore
any solutions to the family-plus-work equa-
tion — either traditional or not so tradi-
tional — that might work for you. And
remember, it’s not about whether you can
do it all, it’s about whether you can be hap-
py whatever you're doing.

Black, president of Hearst Magazines and

EDITOR, The Tribune.

I WRITE in response to a
letter to The Tribune: dated
October 4, 2007 and published
on October 6, 2007. It was
authored by Sons of Zion
Islamic Alliance (SOZIA). In
the letter the writers addressed
some of our modern day
hypocrisy on a range of sub-
jects. They touched on the
Iraq and Crusade Wars;
Christopher Columbus; Cre-
ation vs haphazard evolution:
alcohol vs marijuana use; the
homosexual agenda, etc. Of
course they concluded with a
long section asserting that
Islam is the one true religion.
They also made a startling
statement (quote) “...in the
book of Revelations it is said
that in the end times the world
will be divided by two main
religions: in these times we see
that they are Islam and Chris-
tianity”.

Since they mentioned Rev-
elations, please note some of
the books teachings about
Jesus Christ:

e Jesus died and shed his
blood to redeem all who
would believe in Him. (Rev |
vs 5; 5 vs 9; 7 vs 14; 12 vs 11
(He is the Lamb Of God - see
also John I vs 29 & 36).

e Jesus is revealed to be The
Son Of God (Rev 2 vs 18);

The First and the last (Rev |

vs 17;2 vs 8 and 22 vs 13): the
Alpha and Omega (Rev | vs 8
and 11; 21 vs 6 & 22 vs 13)

¢ He is also The Faithful
Witness; The Firstborn from
the dead and The ruler over

the Kings of the earth’ (Rev T'”'

vs 5;.3_vs 14: 17 vs 4; La vs It

&19 vs 16)

While the Ninsitns cldimn to
honour Jesus, they honour
only a “redefined Jesus”, not
the Jesus honoured and
approved by God. In order to
validate teachings of Muham-
mad, he and they discredited
the teachings of Jesus himself:
the Apostles and the Church
pertaining to the nature, per-
son, work, roles and position
of Jesus Christ. The Old Tes-
tament anticipated and pre-
dicted the birth, ministry,
death resurrection and com-
ing Kingdom of the Messiah
Saviour. We see these things
realised in the New Testa-
ment. The testimony about
Jesus, the Son of Man and Son
of God, is the foundation of
the Church. Perhaps it would
be more honest of the Mus-

lims to reject Jesus outright
than to reinvent him based on
what Muhammad said more
than 600 years after Jesus’
time. On the other hand, it
needs to be made perfectly
clear that true Christians can-
not go to war and kill others in
Jesus’ name. Jesus in John 18
vs 36 clearly states that his ser-
vants do not fight physically
to advance His Kingdom. Dur-
ing this period of time when
God’s grace is prevailing, the
true Holy War consists of
preaching the’Gospel, prayer,
praise and worship (Ephesians
6 vs 10-18; 1 Corinthians | vs
18).

Unfortunately the Muslims
have knowingly or unknow-

ingly sided in the corner,of °

Antichrist by denying that
Jesus is the Son of God and
Word of God in human form

(2 John vs 7-11). I pray that
even still God would open
their understanding to the
truth revealed to John The
Baptist, Peter, James and John
and Paul (Luke 3 vs 31-22;
Luke 9 vs 35 & Acts 9 vs 20).
Both Christians and Muslims
alike need to know what Revy-
elations and other scriptures
say about the ultimate
Antichrist of prophecy. He
will crave and receive worship;
he will blaspheme God and
everything and everyone asso-
ciated with God. He will per-
secute the saints and behead
some of them (Rey. 13 vs 4-7
and 20 vs 4). Such a person
could not be a true Christian.
nor a Muslim. May God’s
truth shine ever brightly, even
in these latter days before the
coming of the King of Kings,
and His Kingdom reign on
Earth.

Why do we want to
introduce new species?

EDITOR, The Tribune.

PLEASE permit me space in your column to address Mr
Edison Key and Associates. First of all 1 want let them know that
there are active Animal Rights groups here in the Bahamas and

have been since 1924. We

are always talking about invasive

species of animals and plants in this country of ours and the toll

they take on our eco systent.

So pray tell me why do we want to introduce new species of
fowl or small animals, for some trigger happy tourist to come
hére and spend a couple of dollars.

There is enough gun violence in our country today, please put
your focus on tourists who will leave their guns at home. We
must teach our children to respect animals, shooting them and
storing them in freezers is a very poor example of respecting ani-
mals. In the Bahamas we already have the best form of hunting
and that is fishing, you get the excitement of the hunt, the plea-
sure of the release or a nice meal. I do not see us making it bet-
ier again by killing defenseless animals. Is not Abaco all about

conservation?

Our neighbours to the north are famous for going ballistics in
public places with their guns. Do we want to take that chance?
A solution to attracting tourists who have a great gun culture in
them and want to get the edge out or away from a frustrated.
busy lifestyle, set up a paintball park and let them shoot at one
another and at the end of the day, they meet new friends,
nobody is hurt and no unnecessary suffering of animals or

exploitation of wildlife.

Mexico rallies
as hundreds
of thousands
flee Gulf floods

®@ VILLAHERMOSA,
Mexico



HUNDREDS of thousands
of Mexicans fled a flooded
region of the Gulf coast Friday,
jumping from rooftops into res-
cue helicopters, scrambling into
boats or swimming out through
murky brown water, according
to Associated Press.

President Felipe Calderon
called the flooding in Tabasco
state one of Mexico’s worst
recent natural disasters, and
pledged to rebuild.

A week of heavy rains
caused rivers to overflow,
drowning at least 80 percent of
the oil-rich state. Much of the
state capital, Villahermosa,
looked like New Orleans after
Hurricane Katrina, with water
reaching to second-story
rooftops and desperate people
awaiting rescue.

At least one death was
reported and nearly all services,
including drinking water and
public transportation, were shut
down. The flood affected more
than 900,000 people in the state
of 2 million — their homes
flooded, damaged or-cut off by
high water.

A 10-inch natural gas
pipeline sprang a leak after
flooding apparently washed
away soil underneath it, but it
was unclear if other facilities
operated by. the state-run
Petroleos Mexicanos were
damaged or if oil production
was affected.

Workers tried to protect Vil-
lahermosa’s famous Olmec
statues by placing sandbag col-

US Ambassador-designate

arrives in the Bahamas

US AMBASSADOR-desig-
nate Ned Siegel arrived in the
Bahamas yesterday, saying he
looks forward to starting work.

Mr Siegel said he and his wife
Stephanie are “delighted” to
have arrived.

“We have visited the
Bahamas many times over
many years for family vacations,
celebrations, and business con-
ferences,” Mr Siegel said. “We
have always been gratified by
the warmth and friendliness of
the Bahamian people.
Stephanie and I now look for-
ward to living and working in
Nassau and becoming part of
the Bahamian community.

“The ties that bind our peo-
ple and our governments are
deeply rooted in family con-
nections, business links, educa-

“tional experience, mutual tray-

el, and personal friendships. I
welcome the opportunity to
deepen and enrich those ties
during my tenure as ambas-
sador,” Mr Siegel said,

He said that he looked for-
ward to presenting his creden-
tials to Governor General
Arthur Hanna and working
with the Bahamas government
to represent the United States

and further the many common
interests shared by both coun-
tries.

“We are truly honoured and
humbled to be here in your
beautiful country,” he said.

Ned L Siegel has had a very
successful career in real estate
and business, while volunteer-
ing time to personally impor-
tant civic, Jewish, educational
and political causes.

Before this, he practised law,
and served as a law clerk to
Chief Justice Mitchell H Cohen
in the Federal District Court in
Camden, New Jersey, before
moving to join the law firm of
Kimmelman, Wolff and Sam-
son,

In 1977, Mr Siegel left law
behind to pursue his love of
business, joining the Howard
Siegel Companies.

By 1980, he had expanded the
company into one of the largest
residential developers in the
United States and was named
president and managing part-
ner of the Weingarten-Siegel
Group, Inc, where he was pri-
marily responsible for the oper-
ations, overall development and
marketing of residential com-

“ munities, office parks and retail

centres throughout New Jersey.
In 1984, Mr Siegel expanded

They were asking the pub-
lic for assistance in locating
her.

However, Ms Missick yes-
terday said she had never
been missing and that she
had simply been staying with
her older sister, Jennifer
Hanna.

The young woman
explained that she had had
an argument with her moth-
er two weeks ago and decid-
ed to leave her home to
move in with her sister.

Due to a misunderstand-
ing, Ms Missick’s family was
not informed that she was
staying with her sister.

Ms Missick said that
although she is not yet pre-
pared to call her mother, she
wants to let her know that
she is safe.

The young woman said
she now wants to meet with
her mother to talk to her
before she moves back
home.

However, Ms’ Clark
denies that she had had any
argument with her daughter.
She said when she left home

that afternoon to pick up her
five-year-old child from
school, Stacey was quite
happy. Ms Clark said that
before she left they were
watching TV together, eat-
ing, talking and laughing. “I
told her I would be right
back,” said Ms Clark. “But
when I got back she was
gone.”

Ms Clark said that a
friend of the family went to
Jennifer Hanna’s home two

weeks ago to find out if
' Stacey were there. “Mrs :

Hanna denied that Stacey
was there and said she knew
nothing of her where-
abouts,” the friend told Ms
Clark.

“Do you think I would
have been up and down in
all this rain, called the
police, gone to The Tribune

‘to report her missing, missed

days at work looking for her,
and had all those sleepness
nights if I had known where
she was?” her upset mother
asked last night.

Up until late last night Ms

serious flooding issues

m By ADRIAN GIBSON
ajbahama@hotmail.com

H URRICANES are
one of the most

cataclysmic, ruinous aspects
of Mother Nature’s weath-
er arsenal. Residents of
Long Island, my home, can
attest to the devastating
effects.a hurricane, or trop-
ical storm, can have ona
place.

In 2004, Long Island was
ravaged by hurricane
Frances. However, as pre-
sent MP and Minister of
Agriculture and Marine
Resources Larry Cartwright
stated in 2005, many
islandets felt like their pleas

for assistance were ignored

by then Minister of Hous-
ing Shane Gibson.

“People’s homes and stuff
have been ruined, man, and
they have nothing. When I
first got into parliament (in
2002) the minister (Shane
Gibson) assisted me with a
programme here, but there
has been nothing since
then,” Mr Cartwright said
then.

As. Um sure they do now,
back then many residents
feared that any further dam-
age to their homes and
property would have an
unfavourable effect upon
their livelihoods and “shal-
low pockets.”

Today, Long Islanders
are again confronted by
enormous losses and exten-
sive ruination of their prop-
erties.

For weeks, the island has
been almost submerged due
to heayy torrential down-
pours. This week, the island
has faced intense winds and
heavy: showers.

One .resident; told, me:
“We had to flee and run to

high ground. These must be





the last days because Long
Island has never seen any-
thing like this! We are

already suffering up here .

from a slow economy, now
the whole island is flooded.
Man, f could swim in my
yard!’

Throughout Long Island,
there have been reports. of
widespread flooding. Cur-

tion wrought upon Long
Island by Noel, Lenora Gib-
son, my grandmother and a
resident of Bunches, said:

“Man, things rough! Peo- »

ple’s houses are full) of
water!

“There is no electricity
the current and everything
has been off since Wednes-
day. People ther flood out!



“Throughout Long Island, there

have been reports of widespread

flooding. Currently, the island is
said to be underwater as it has
hardly any drainage outlets.
Reportedly, entire families have
been forced to abandon their
homes, and farms and

Dest are severely flooded.”



rently, the island is said to
be underwater as it has
hardly any drainage outlets.
Reportedly, entire families
have been forced to aban-
don their homes, and farms
and businesses are severely
flooded.

Fifty-one people have
apparently had to evacuate
their homes

According to the island’s
MP, Long Island experi
enced possibly the worst
flooding in 60 years just two
weeks ago, and this time is
faced by even worse flood

Islanders, were unable to -

O’Neal’s, is also facing dif-
ficult circumstances as every
room in her house is flood-
ed.

Even before the passage
of Tropical Storm Noel, the
heavy rains of two weeks
ago destroyed numerous
farms on the island.

A esing local
farmers, they also

lost livestock as many of
their animals got cramps
and either died from the
harsh conditions or
drowned. Although many
livestock farmers attempted
to move their animals to ele-
vated land, they still
incurred many losses.

Long island farmers say
that their crops — such as
maize, water melons and
tomatoes — are under
water, and have become too
“soggy” and watei-logged to
sell.

They say they doubt that
they could even save some
for personal consumption.
Many farmers are concerned
about their huge financial
losses, but they take solace
in having survived the
storm/flooding.

According to fishermen
on the island, their liveli-
hood is on hold. Generally,
they all said that for the past
month, the waters have been
“too muddy” to dive or fish
and that the seas were too
rough.

Many boats throughout

the island have been: hauled:

on-te, day-deckieme

Both of the airports on
Long Island are swamped,
possibly cracked and with
debris. There is no air traffic
entering or leaving the
island, and tourists hurried-
ly left earlier this week when
the island was initially noti-
fied of the incoming storm.

Furthermore, the mail-
boat servicing the island is
unable to travel.

Due to the lack of mail-
boat service, islanders now
must conserve their food
and gas supplies as store and
gas station proprietors are
incapable of immediately
replenishing their stock after
all supplies in their
stockrooms have been
exhausted.

Sadly, the island faces
even more petrifying times
as the water supply is said
to be contaminated due to
flooding and the overflow of
sewage, namely because the
vast majority of islanders
still use personal wells.

Describing the present
state of Long Island, one
resident said:

“There are people in their
roofs, in the attic my broth-
er! You can steer a boat in
some of these yards here,
and if you want, you might
be able to catch a snapper
or a grunt because they are
swimming all over the road.

“For those people that
live near the sea, well, the
sea has become their back-
yards and engulfed their
homes!”

Long Island is again fac-
ing economic peril. Indeed,
the economic fallout from
the storm and the recent
flooding is devastating, but
Long Islanders are industri-
ous and resilient people and,
with the government's assis-
tance, are sure to bounce.

Celebrating loan retirement,

IN OCTOBER 2003, The Nassau Chapter
of The Links opened the doors for the first
Safe House For Women in Crisis in The
Bahamas. The stately edifice valued at over
$750,000 was made possible by the generos-
ity of the Government and people of the
Bahamas in an effort led by the Nassau
Chapter of The Links.

The Links Inc. is an International organi-
zation of women committed to service in
their respective communities. The retire-
ment of the construction loan coincided with
the celebration of 20 years since the local
chapter was started as an interest group in
The Bahamas. ,

The Nassau Links celebrated their loan
retirement and 20 years of friendship and
service in a Gala Dinner at the Crown Ball
Room on Saturday 27th October, 2007.
Guests were delighted by superb entertain-
ment by the National Youth Choir, Ms.
Patrice Ferguson, Ms. Joann Callender and
the Falcon Band. .

Several members of the Links Inc. joined
the local chapter in celebration among visit-
ing Links were the immediate Past Presi-
dent Link Gladys Gary Vaughn, immediate
Past Speaker Area Director, Link Margaret
Thompson Johnson, Southern Area Director °
Link Mary Currie, the President of The Mia-
mi Dade Chapter, Link Jeris Smith, and Link
Betty Ferguson, former Commissioner for
Dade County.

i 1. Ms. Betty Ferguson, wife of the late
Judge Wilkie Ferguson, joined in congratu-

the weekend. Ms. Ferguson's legacy in the
Miami area is rooted in her dynamic role as
commissioner for Dade County. She was
married to Federal Judge Wilkie Ferguson,
whose parents are both from Crooked Island
and in whose honour the Federal Court of
South Florida was named earlier this year.

DEFENCE Force officers
will be leaving for Cat Island
today to assist in pumping up
to 13 feet of water from settle-
ments that a number of fami-
lies have been forced to evacu-
ate. ‘
Prime Minister Hubert Ingra-
ham, with Works Minister Earl
Deveaux, went to Cat Island,
Long Island, and Exuma yes-
terday to assess the damage
from Tropical Storm Noel.

In Cat Island, in the settle-
ment of Alligator Bay, some six
families have had to be evacu-
ated due — in some instances
— to almost 13 feet of water
settling around their homes.

Much needed drinking water,
also will be flown into the island
today as medical officers on the
ground report that the local
drinking water has been conta-
minated. Residents are advised
to boil their water before using
it.

Also due to the flooding, the
settlements of Devil’s Point,
McQueen’s, Hawks Nest, and
Port Howe are now completely
cut off from the rest of the
island.

‘As a result, the Defence

Force has been called in to
assist with the pumping of water
from the roads to make certain
these areas, which are also with-
out electricity, are again acces-
‘sible: :

In Long Island, the Dead-
man’s Cay airport remained
flooded yesterday. Only a small
portion at the northern end was
free of water. The terminal and
surrounding acreage were com-

' pletely underwater.

In the settlement of Simm’s,
residents had to use boats to get
out of their homes as water had
settled up to 10 feet in some
areas.

Prime Minister Ingraham and
Minister Deveaux were making
an assessment of the area to
ensure that the necessary
resources are made available to
those persons in need.

On the island of Exuma, res-
idents fared much better by
comparison with some flooding
of the golf courses at the Four
Season Resort and residential
areas in and around the island’s
capital, George Town.

One government complex in
particular was under water —
blocking access to it from every
angle. However, for the most

_part, the island seemed to have

been spared in terms of dam-
age to crops, homes, and infra-
structure.

RESIDENTS throughout the capital may
experience a temporary lull in garbage collec-
tion as the Department of Environmental Health
attempts to catch up on the backlog of trash left
on collection routes because of Tropical Storm
Noel.

The department plans to make an “agegres-
sive” effort over the weekend to return to the
normal collection schedule that was disrupted
as Noel, the deadliest storm of the 2007 Atlantic
season, ripped through the Caribbean earlier in
the week. ;

“All of our offices have been alerted to the
need for us to try to be as vigilant as we can be
and as aggressive with the collection, so hopefully
if it doesn’t rain (over the weekend) we will be on
schedule,” Melanie McKenzie, Director of Envi-
ronmental Health, told The Tribune during a

Residents in Pinewood Gardens and Nassau
Village — communities that reportedly suffered
at least two.feet of flooding Thursday night from

\

Noel’s torrential rain — may have to wait a little
longer for garbage collection as sanitation work-
ers assess water levels in those areas.

“The flooded areas are going to be of concern
primarily because we can’t collect (from) the
flooded areas because as you know our trucks
will displace a great deal of water and we don’t
want to disadvantage the persons in those com-
munities any further. However, we are going to
have to work out some way as the water drains
away to pick (the garbage) up.”

Yesterday morning sanitation workers were
dispatched to assess the flooding throughout
New Providence to determine which neighbour-
hoods they could collect waste from without dis-
placing water in the flooded areas, Ms McKenzie
told The Tribune.

Many residents have voiced complaints about
the “irregularity” of garbage collection, calling for
the Department to increase its efforts. While
noting some neighbourhoods experience collec-
tion “like clockwork”, Ms McKenzie said the

trucks have been placed on a rush order which
should be shipped in two or three instalments by

Undocumented
immigrant
detained after
testifying in case

@ MIAMI

AN UNDOCUMENTED day
laborer was detained after he tes-
tified in court against a man
accused of attacking him, a move
denounced Friday by immigrant
rights groups, according to Asso-
ciated Press.

Carlos Cruz Gallego, a Colom-

bian immigrant, was taken into
custody at his Miami home short-
ly after he left the stand Thurs-
day.

“This is a horrible precedent
that’s set,” said Jonathan Fried,
executive director for WeCount!,
a Social justice organization.

Gallego’s detention sends a
message to illegal immigrants that
“if they’re a victim of crime, they
can’t testify,” Fried said, “And
that’s going to hurt the whole
community.”

Brooke Greco, an attorney
with the Florida Immigrant Advo-
cacy Center, argued that Gallego
has temporary legal status while
his visa application is pending.
Gallego was eligible for a “U”
visa, given to victims of violent
crime who cooperate with author-
ities. The alleged attack took
place in November 2006.

But an official with U.S. Immi-
gration and Customs Enforce-
ment said Gallego was arrested
in March for overstaying his orig-
inal nonimmigrant visa, and was
granted bond for the sole purpose
of testifying in the assault case.

Gallego was detained after his
testimony because the state attor-
ney’s office said they no longer
needed him for the trial, according
to an ICE official familiar with
the case.

RETIRED seamstress Adyilda Scavella can’t recall worse weath

erin Rum Cay in all her 92 years.

The tiny island’s oldest resident couldn’t believe her eyes when

Tropical Storm Noel passed over

Nearly every house in Rum C ay *s main settlement — Port Nel-
son — was flooded. And:the island’s airport was left under two feet

of water.

Mrs Scavella yesterday left all her doors and windows open to air

her waterlogged home.

Her daughter, Delores Wilson, said: “It rained hard all night. The
thunder and lightning were terrible. It was very frightening.

“My mother, who was born here
anything like it in all that time.”

92 years ago, can’t remember

At The Mangrove, a nearby sub-division, homes were left strand

ed by floor water.

Rum Cay’s young men were yesterday helping the clean-up
operation throughout the community.
Roads remained flooded, but by last night water levels were

beginning to fall.

Kirk James, of the Grand

reported that the island got only
0.14 inches of rain from the
storm.

“We got very few feeder
bands and experienced yery
light showers,” he said.

The Tribune wants to hear

Centre in Freeport was report-

edly deactivated on Friday
morning. The Tribune attempt-
ed to call the EOC, but the calls
were, not answered.

The Maurice Moore Primary
School, which was designed to
be a shelter for East End resi-
dents, has also been officially
closed.

Although Grand Bahama was
on the weaker side of the storm,
residents of East End were
expected to experience some
effects from the system as it
passed northeast of the island.

However, there was not
enough deterioration in the
weather to cause concern in that
area of the island.

“We received only light rain
showers and winds, but nothing
to be concerned about,” said
High Rock resident Priscilla
Cooper. ;

Noel, the 14th named storm,
has now been upgraded to hur-

LEON E.

NEW YORK — There’s a phrase that
came into vogue a while back: “having it

B ora couple of years, magazines, news-
papers and TV were full of stories about
superwomen who were doing everything:
working full-time jobs, raising perfect chil-
dren, volunteering at their children’s

in their spare time.

Those women were meant to be an inspi-
ration, but instead they ended up making
everyone else feel inadequate — and prob-
ably having nervous breakdowns them-
selves within a few years.

As someone who is often perceived as

“having it all,” let me just say this outright:
| hate that phrase. The implication is that
every person wants exactly the same thing,
which is completely untrue. You don’t have

Cathie Black on ‘having it all’

self? How do you determine not only what
you want in your life, but what you can
realistically achieve?

One way is by looking at those questions
from a slightly different angle: Maybe you
can have all the things you want — just
not all at the same time. In my case, that
meant focusing mainly on work in my 20s
and 30s and becoming a mother in my 40s.
That choice wouldn’t suit everyone, espe-

cially considering the potential age-related |

complications of getting pregnant after 40,
but it has worked well for me.
Some women want nothing more than to

- stay home with their kids, and some are

dying to get back to work. Most of us fall
somewhere in the middle. The key is to
make the decision that’s right for you — no
matter what anyone else thinks your right
answer should be. So, let’s say you’ve made
the decision that you want both a family
and a career. How can you do it all?

I went back to work within a couple of
weeks of adopting our son, Duffy (we
adopted our daughter, Alison, four years
later). My husband Tom and I both were
comfortable with making the decision to
have me go back to work full-time. I did

‘bring Dutfy with me to a few off-site meet-
ings at. USA Today, with nanny or mother-
- in-law in tow, and to his credit, my boss Al

Neuharth — who had very progressive
ideas about families and work time —
encouraged parents to bring their children
to work on occasion. But even with those
advantages, I remember what a balancing
act it was to raise our kids, work long hours
and do so much travelling at the same time.

It is possible to have a family anda
career, though time and energy are both
finite, so you'll have to make choices and,
sometimes, sacrifices. Feel free to explore
any solutions to the family-plus-work equa-
tion — either traditional or not so tradi-
tional — that might work for you. And
remember, it’s not about whether you can
do it all, it’s about whether you can be hap-
py whatever you're doing.

THE TRIBUNE



Response to letter

by Sons of Zion
Islamic Alliance

EDITOR, The Tribune.

I WRITE in response to a
letter to The Tribune: dated
October 4, 2007 and published
on October 6, 2007. It was
authored by Sons of Zion
Islamic Alliance (SOZIA). In
the letter the writers addressed
some of our modern day
hypocrisy on a range of sub-
jects. They touched on the
Iraq and Crusade Wars;
Christopher Columbus; Cre-
ation vs haphazard evolution:
alcohol vs marijuana use; the
homosexual agenda, etc. Of
course they concluded with a
long section asserting that
Islam is the one true religion.
They also made a startling
statement (quote) “...in the
book of Revelations it is said
that in the end times the world
will be divided by two main
religions: in these times we see
that they are Islam and Chris-
tianity”.

Since they mentioned Rev-
elations, please note some of
the books teachings about
Jesus Christ:

e Jesus died and shed his
blood to redeem all who
would believe in Him. (Rev |
vs 5; 5 vs 9; 7 vs 14; 12 vs 11
(He is the Lamb Of God - see
also John I vs 29 & 36).

e Jesus is revealed to be The
Son Of God (Rev 2 vs 18);

The First and the last (Rev |

vs 17;2 vs 8 and 22 vs 13): the
Alpha and Omega (Rev | vs 8
and 11; 21 vs 6 & 22 vs 13)

¢ He is also The Faithful
Witness; The Firstborn from
the dead and The ruler over

the Kings of the earth’ (Rev T'”'

vs 5;.3_vs 14: 17 vs 4; La vs It

&19 vs 16)

While the Ninsitns cldimn to
honour Jesus, they honour
only a “redefined Jesus”, not
the Jesus honoured and
approved by God. In order to
validate teachings of Muham-
mad, he and they discredited
the teachings of Jesus himself:
the Apostles and the Church
pertaining to the nature, per-
son, work, roles and position
of Jesus Christ. The Old Tes-
tament anticipated and pre-
dicted the birth, ministry,
death resurrection and com-
ing Kingdom of the Messiah
Saviour. We see these things
realised in the New Testa-
ment. The testimony about
Jesus, the Son of Man and Son
of God, is the foundation of
the Church. Perhaps it would
be more honest of the Mus-

lims to reject Jesus outright
than to reinvent him based on
what Muhammad said more
than 600 years after Jesus’
time. On the other hand, it
needs to be made perfectly
clear that true Christians can-
not go to war and kill others in
Jesus’ name. Jesus in John 18
vs 36 clearly states that his ser-
vants do not fight physically
to advance His Kingdom. Dur-
ing this period of time when
God’s grace is prevailing, the
true Holy War consists of
preaching the’Gospel, prayer,
praise and worship (Ephesians
6 vs 10-18; 1 Corinthians | vs
18).

Unfortunately the Muslims
have knowingly or unknow-

ingly sided in the corner,of °

Antichrist by denying that
Jesus is the Son of God and
Word of God in human form

(2 John vs 7-11). I pray that
even still God would open
their understanding to the
truth revealed to John The
Baptist, Peter, James and John
and Paul (Luke 3 vs 31-22;
Luke 9 vs 35 & Acts 9 vs 20).
Both Christians and Muslims
alike need to know what Revy-
elations and other scriptures
say about the ultimate
Antichrist of prophecy. He
will crave and receive worship;
he will blaspheme God and
everything and everyone asso-
ciated with God. He will per-
secute the saints and behead
some of them (Rey. 13 vs 4-7
and 20 vs 4). Such a person
could not be a true Christian.
nor a Muslim. May God’s
truth shine ever brightly, even
in these latter days before the
coming of the King of Kings,
and His Kingdom reign on
Earth.

Why do we want to
introduce new species?

EDITOR, The Tribune.

PLEASE permit me space in your column to address Mr
Edison Key and Associates. First of all 1 want let them know that
there are active Animal Rights groups here in the Bahamas and

have been since 1924. We

are always talking about invasive

species of animals and plants in this country of ours and the toll

they take on our eco systent.

So pray tell me why do we want to introduce new species of
fowl or small animals, for some trigger happy tourist to come
hére and spend a couple of dollars.

There is enough gun violence in our country today, please put
your focus on tourists who will leave their guns at home. We
must teach our children to respect animals, shooting them and
storing them in freezers is a very poor example of respecting ani-
mals. In the Bahamas we already have the best form of hunting
and that is fishing, you get the excitement of the hunt, the plea-
sure of the release or a nice meal. I do not see us making it bet-
ier again by killing defenseless animals. Is not Abaco all about

conservation?

Our neighbours to the north are famous for going ballistics in
public places with their guns. Do we want to take that chance?
A solution to attracting tourists who have a great gun culture in
them and want to get the edge out or away from a frustrated.
busy lifestyle, set up a paintball park and let them shoot at one
another and at the end of the day, they meet new friends,
nobody is hurt and no unnecessary suffering of animals or

exploitation of wildlife.

Mexico rallies
as hundreds
of thousands
flee Gulf floods

®@ VILLAHERMOSA,
Mexico



HUNDREDS of thousands
of Mexicans fled a flooded
region of the Gulf coast Friday,
jumping from rooftops into res-
cue helicopters, scrambling into
boats or swimming out through
murky brown water, according
to Associated Press.

President Felipe Calderon
called the flooding in Tabasco
state one of Mexico’s worst
recent natural disasters, and
pledged to rebuild.

A week of heavy rains
caused rivers to overflow,
drowning at least 80 percent of
the oil-rich state. Much of the
state capital, Villahermosa,
looked like New Orleans after
Hurricane Katrina, with water
reaching to second-story
rooftops and desperate people
awaiting rescue.

At least one death was
reported and nearly all services,
including drinking water and
public transportation, were shut
down. The flood affected more
than 900,000 people in the state
of 2 million — their homes
flooded, damaged or-cut off by
high water.

A 10-inch natural gas
pipeline sprang a leak after
flooding apparently washed
away soil underneath it, but it
was unclear if other facilities
operated by. the state-run
Petroleos Mexicanos were
damaged or if oil production
was affected.

Workers tried to protect Vil-
lahermosa’s famous Olmec
statues by placing sandbag col-

US Ambassador-designate

arrives in the Bahamas

US AMBASSADOR-desig-
nate Ned Siegel arrived in the
Bahamas yesterday, saying he
looks forward to starting work.

Mr Siegel said he and his wife
Stephanie are “delighted” to
have arrived.

“We have visited the
Bahamas many times over
many years for family vacations,
celebrations, and business con-
ferences,” Mr Siegel said. “We
have always been gratified by
the warmth and friendliness of
the Bahamian people.
Stephanie and I now look for-
ward to living and working in
Nassau and becoming part of
the Bahamian community.

“The ties that bind our peo-
ple and our governments are
deeply rooted in family con-
nections, business links, educa-

“tional experience, mutual tray-

el, and personal friendships. I
welcome the opportunity to
deepen and enrich those ties
during my tenure as ambas-
sador,” Mr Siegel said,

He said that he looked for-
ward to presenting his creden-
tials to Governor General
Arthur Hanna and working
with the Bahamas government
to represent the United States

and further the many common
interests shared by both coun-
tries.

“We are truly honoured and
humbled to be here in your
beautiful country,” he said.

Ned L Siegel has had a very
successful career in real estate
and business, while volunteer-
ing time to personally impor-
tant civic, Jewish, educational
and political causes.

Before this, he practised law,
and served as a law clerk to
Chief Justice Mitchell H Cohen
in the Federal District Court in
Camden, New Jersey, before
moving to join the law firm of
Kimmelman, Wolff and Sam-
son,

In 1977, Mr Siegel left law
behind to pursue his love of
business, joining the Howard
Siegel Companies.

By 1980, he had expanded the
company into one of the largest
residential developers in the
United States and was named
president and managing part-
ner of the Weingarten-Siegel
Group, Inc, where he was pri-
marily responsible for the oper-
ations, overall development and
marketing of residential com-

“ munities, office parks and retail

centres throughout New Jersey.

They were asking the pub-
lic for assistance in locating
her.

However, Ms Missick yes-
terday said she had never
been missing and that she
had simply been staying with
her older sister, Jennifer
Hanna.

The young woman
explained that she had had
an argument with her moth-
er two weeks ago and decid-
ed to leave her home to
move in with her sister.

Due to a misunderstand-
ing, Ms Missick’s family was
not informed that she was
staying with her sister.

Ms Missick said that
although she is not yet pre-
pared to call her mother, she
wants to let her know that
she is safe.

The young woman said
she now wants to meet with
her mother to talk to her
before she moves back
home.

However, Ms’ Clark
denies that she had had any
argument with her daughter.
She said when she left home

before she left they were
watching TV together, eat-
ing, talking and laughing. “I
told her I would be right
back,” said Ms Clark. “But
when I got back she was
gone.”

Ms Clark said that a
friend of the family went to
Jennifer Hanna’s home two

weeks ago to find out if
' Stacey were there. “Mrs :

Hanna denied that Stacey
was there and said she knew
nothing of her where-

serious flooding issues

m By ADRIAN GIBSON

H URRICANES are
one of the most

cataclysmic, ruinous aspects
of Mother Nature’s weath-
er arsenal. Residents of
Long Island, my home, can
attest to the devastating
effects.a hurricane, or trop-
ical storm, can have ona
place.

In 2004, Long Island was
ravaged by hurricane
Frances. However, as pre-
sent MP and Minister of
Agriculture and Marine
Resources Larry Cartwright
stated in 2005, many
islandets felt like their pleas

for assistance were ignored

by then Minister of Hous-
ing Shane Gibson.

“People’s homes and stuff
have been ruined, man, and
they have nothing. When I
first got into parliament (in
2002) the minister (Shane
Gibson) assisted me with a
programme here, but there
has been nothing since
then,” Mr Cartwright said
then.

As. Um sure they do now,
back then many residents
feared that any further dam-
age to their homes and
property would have an
unfavourable effect upon
their livelihoods and “shal-
low pockets.”

Today, Long Islanders
are again confronted by
enormous losses and exten-
sive ruination of their prop-
erties.

For weeks, the island has
been almost submerged due
to heayy torrential down-
pours. This week, the island
has faced intense winds and
heavy: showers.

One .resident; told, me:
“We had to flee and run to

high ground. These must be





the last days because Long
Island has never seen any-
thing like this! We are

already suffering up here .

from a slow economy, now
the whole island is flooded.
Man, f could swim in my
yard!’

Throughout Long Island,
there have been reports. of
widespread flooding. Cur-

tion wrought upon Long
Island by Noel, Lenora Gib-
son, my grandmother and a
resident of Bunches, said:

“Man, things rough! Peo- »

ple’s houses are full) of
water!

“There is no electricity
the current and everything
has been off since Wednes-
day. People ther flood out!



“Throughout Long Island, there

have been reports of widespread

flooding. Currently, the island is
said to be underwater as it has
hardly any drainage outlets.
Reportedly, entire families have
been forced to abandon their
homes, and farms and

Dest are severely flooded.”



rently, the island is said to
be underwater as it has
hardly any drainage outlets.
Reportedly, entire families
have been forced to aban-
don their homes, and farms
and businesses are severely
flooded.

Fifty-one people have
apparently had to evacuate
their homes

According to the island’s
MP, Long Island experi
enced possibly the worst

O’Neal’s, is also facing dif-
ficult circumstances as every
room in her house is flood-
ed.

Even before the passage
of Tropical Storm Noel, the
heavy rains of two weeks
ago destroyed numerous
farms on the island.

A esing local
farmers, they also

lost livestock as many of
their animals got cramps
and either died from the
harsh conditions or
drowned. Although many
livestock farmers attempted
to move their animals to ele-
vated land, they still
incurred many losses.

Long island farmers say
that their crops — such as
maize, water melons and
tomatoes — are under
water, and have become too
“soggy” and watei-logged to
sell.

They say they doubt that
they could even save some
for personal consumption.
Many farmers are concerned
about their huge financial
losses, but they take solace
in having survived the
storm/flooding.

According to fishermen
on the island, their liveli-
hood is on hold. Generally,
they all said that for the past
month, the waters have been
“too muddy” to dive or fish
and that the seas were too
rough.

Many boats throughout

the island have been: hauled:

on-te, day-deckieme

Both of the airports on
Long Island are swamped,
possibly cracked and with
debris. There is no air traffic
entering or leaving the
island, and tourists hurried-
ly left earlier this week when
the island was initially noti-
fied of the incoming storm.

Furthermore, the mail-
boat servicing the island is
unable to travel.

Due to the lack of mail-
boat service, islanders now
must conserve their food
and gas supplies as store and
gas station proprietors are
incapable of immediately
replenishing their stock after
all supplies in their
stockrooms have been
exhausted.

Sadly, the island faces
even more petrifying times
as the water supply is said
to be contaminated due to
flooding and the overflow of
sewage, namely because the
vast majority of islanders
still use personal wells.

Describing the present
state of Long Island, one
resident said:

“There are people in their
roofs, in the attic my broth-
er! You can steer a boat in
some of these yards here,
and if you want, you might
be able to catch a snapper
or a grunt because they are
swimming all over the road.

“For those people that
live near the sea, well, the
sea has become their back-
yards and engulfed their
homes!”

Long Island is again fac-
ing economic peril. Indeed,
the economic fallout from
the storm and the recent
flooding is devastating, but
Long Islanders are industri-
ous and resilient people and,
with the government's assis-
tance, are sure to bounce.

Celebrating loan retirement,

IN OCTOBER 2003, The Nassau Chapter
of The Links opened the doors for the first
Safe House For Women in Crisis in The
Bahamas. The stately edifice valued at over
$750,000 was made possible by the generos-
ity of the Government and people of the
Bahamas in an effort led by the Nassau
Chapter of The Links.

The Links Inc. is an International organi-
zation of women committed to service in
their respective communities. The retire-
ment of the construction loan coincided with
the celebration of 20 years since the local
chapter was started as an interest group in
The Bahamas. ,

The Nassau Links celebrated their loan
retirement and 20 years of friendship and
service in a Gala Dinner at the Crown Ball
Room on Saturday 27th October, 2007.
Guests were delighted by superb entertain-
ment by the National Youth Choir, Ms.
Patrice Ferguson, Ms. Joann Callender and
the Falcon Band. .

Several members of the Links Inc. joined
the local chapter in celebration among visit-
ing Links were the immediate Past Presi-
dent Link Gladys Gary Vaughn, immediate
Past Speaker Area Director, Link Margaret
Thompson Johnson, Southern Area Director °
Link Mary Currie, the President of The Mia-
mi Dade Chapter, Link Jeris Smith, and Link
Betty Ferguson, former Commissioner for
Dade County.

i 1. Ms. Betty Ferguson, wife of the late
Judge Wilkie Ferguson, joined in congratu-
lating The Nassau Chapter of The Links over

Miami area is rooted in her dynamic role as
commissioner for Dade County. She was
married to Federal Judge Wilkie Ferguson,
whose parents are both from Crooked Island
and in whose honour the Federal Court of
South Florida was named earlier this year.
