WITH the holiday season
over, the garbage it created is
piling up as bins have gone
unemptied.

A number of readers called
The Tribune to voice their
anger and frustration over the
lack of garbage collection in
many areas of New Providence.

A resident of Grove Avenue,
near Saunders Beach, said the
last time he saw a garbage truck
was on Christmas Day.

He said: “Our rubbish was.

last collected on Christmas

Day. It seemed bizarre that the.

collectors would work on such a
day, but they did, and it was
great. Sadly, they haven’t been
back since, and our rubbish is
piling up. ~ «

“We have three full sack
and they smell. I don’t blame,

the collectors themselves, they
have a horrible job to do. I just
wish whoever is in charge
would organise a proper col-
lection schedule, or make way
for someone who can.’

A Carmichael Road resident
reported that the rubbish
beside his home. has not been
collected for over a month, and
while he has seen garbage
trucks in the area, they have

not stopped to pick up the

waste.

He said: “This is causing. a

serious health hazard. Not only.

does the uncollected garbage

create a foul:smell, but it also

attracts flies and rats.”

Earl Deveaux, Minister for
the Environment, told The Tri-
bune that at this time of year,
there’s more than the usual

he has received reports that one
weekly scheduled pick up has
been missed, he is not aware of
any areas in which the garbage

said Mr Fernander, referenc-
ing the arrest of suspects in
connection to the robberies of
First Caribbean Bank at
Sandyport and a Scotiabank
in Exuma last year.

On Tuesday morning, the
cross-dressing bank robber
walked into the bank wearing

make-up and a brown wig..

The gunman was dressed in a

black:shawl when he held up
Fidelity's Money Centre at

Witnesses said the bandit
had.a large package in his

delivering something to the .

bank. He asked to see the

The Tribune swears to ‘dogmas of no master’

_ TODAY we publish a letter on this page
by a writer who is confused by The Tribune’s
editorials. Many times, she wrote, she heard
The Tribune criticised by people “saying
you were simply against the PLP and a
mouthpiece for the FNM.”

We can stop right there and inform the. °*

writer that we are a mouthpiece for no one.

- We support no one just because of who they
are or for the position they hold. Our sup-
port goes to whatever cause they are espous-
ing and whether that cause, in our opinion, is
good for this country.

The writer claims that in this column The
Tribune: at:one time supported union
demonstrations against the PLP:government,
but were against unions demonstrating
against the FNM government. This is incor-
rect. The decision of who we support

depends neither on the government nor the
union. We would never support a demon-

stration by anyone — regardless of which |

government was in power — unless we were

_ Satisfied that their cause was a just one.
We are in total disagreement with today’s

union agitation — and so are some of the

other unions who have withdrawn their sup- °

port from the NCTUB in this dispute —
because we do fot believe that their ‘cause
can be justified. We also believe that the 51
per cent sale of BTC to Cable & Wireless
LIME — an acronym for “Landline, Inter-
net, Mobile, Entertainment”—
best communications provider for the
Bahamas with the government owning 49

per cent from which individual Bahamians _

can eventually become shareholders.
The Tribune does not support govern-
ments just for the sake of supporting gov-
‘sernments, nor do we support unions for the
sake of supporting:unions. We support prin-
‘ciples and causes, which we believe would be
‘good for the Bahamian people — in making
that decision we let governments, and unions
fall where they may. -
_._ As Bishop Simeon Hall said in yester-
day’s Tribune:

“It is becoming very difficult to support
workers and their. unions in causes they
believe to be right without first hurdling-the
memory of the last experience of inexcus-
able, poor, and shoddy: service rendered.
Exceptional and good service are becoming
all too rare in our Bahamas.”

And this is why Cable & Wireless
(LIME) is needed at this time to take the
Bahamas to a new level — one from which
this country can compete internationally.

Yesterday we called a Jamaican business-
man in Kingston for his opinion of Gays
services in his country.

He agreed that in Jamaica years ago there

was public dissatisfaction with C&W when it.

was a monopoly, but since markets were
thrown open, C&W has had to shape up —

it’s now an entirely new company, he said, a -

.will be the.

company with aggressive selling, resulting
in lower prices and better service.

Today, he said, C&W is an excellent com-
pany. “The services provided in Jamaica,” he
said, “are very good. In-the old days it was a
different company.” Those days, he said,
were gone.

Asked if he thought it would be a good
company to take the Bahamas to new
heights. He thought the Bahamas couldn’t
do better, then he added: “Even if they got
the old Cable and Wireless, it would be bet-
ter than BTC is today — BTC’s service is
atrocious!”

Is this what this letter writer expects us to
support just to prove that we are not against
unions and workers, too many of whom,
commented Bishop Hall, “seem mired in a
culture of bad attitude”?

That is not how decisions are made when
we approach our computer to write this col-
umn. No matter which way they “skin this

cat” -we are against this demonstration and’

the stand taken by union members who are
fighting for their jobs and not for the good of
the country. The only way to retain their
jobs is to give such superior service that no
employer would want to part with them —
demonstrations will only position them near-
er the exit door when decision day comes.
The Tribune is fighting for the good of all
Bahamians and the future of this country
— this includes BTC workers who, whether
they believe it or not, will have a brighter
future under a new administration.

The letter writer made an interesting
observation, which, coupled with all the oth-

er comments made in the past few days, con-.

vince us that we are no longer dealing with a

’ BTC union matter, but rather a PLP push to *

position its party for the 2012 election.
Said the writer: “Now all of a sudden,
you are so bitterly against the unions now in
their fight against the sale of BTC. Those
very same unions and their demonstrations

in the 80’s and 90’s brought Mr Ingraham’

and the FNM to power in 1992.”

Has the writer unconsciously let the cat’
out of the bag? Are these demonstrations

orchestrated to push the Ingraham adminis-

. tration aside and open the doors for the PLP

in 2012? ..

We believe that more and more Bahami-
ans are beginning to see the true light and
instead of the promised massive demon-

_ strations, more of them are going to be melt-,

ing into the shadows. Those following the
union in this programme are, in our opinion,
risking their future prospects. —

But this is our decision in this column, and
that is theirs in their workplace. When it is all
over we shall see who regrets the positions
they took.

As for the letter writer, The Tribune still «

“swears to the dogmas of no master” régard-
less of how the public views us.

high esteem for fair and unbi-

ased reporting and your
down-the-middle editorials.
Many times I have heard the
criticisms of your paper from
people saying you were sim-
ply against the PLP anda
mouthpiece for the FNM.

I dismissed those criticisms

because from what I know, —

they came mainly from PLPs.
Your recent posture on the
unions and BTC now, how-
ever, have me scratching my
head.

I find your recent criticisms
of the unions puzzling and
baffling to say the least. I
vividly remember your clear
and outright support of the

LETTERS

letters@tr:



unions in their demonstra-
tions against the PLP Gov-
ernment in the 80s, eg Mr
Leonard Archer and the BUT
and in 1992, Mr Shane Gibson
and the BCPOU. I remember
their sit down demonstrations
on Bay Street outside Parlia-
ment and you openly sup-
ported their right to demon-
strate and also what they were

demonstrating against,
whether they were right or
wrong.

Now all of a.sudden, you
are so bitterly against the
unions now in their fight
against the sale of BTC.
Those very same unions and
their demonstrations in the
80’s and 90’s brought Mr

Ingraham and the FNM to
power in 1992. How come?
Why is your position now so
different?

Whether you have realised
it or not, you are losing a
great deal of support in the
public because it honestly
seems that your newspaper
has honestly and truly gone
against your own. motto of
“swearing to the dogma of no
master.”

It may not be so but your
editorials truly make it appear
as if the present administra-
tion are now your “masters.”
Many of us will be reading
closely to see whether you dis-
abuse our minds of this view.

Thank you for allowing me

, to express my views.

I cry shame on Tribune’s editorial writer

EDITOR, The Tribune. —

It is sad and regrettable that
an alleged “Haitian” village

“at Fire Trail Road was

destroyed by a mystery fire
recently leaving scores of per-
sons homeless and without
the basic necessities. As a
committed Christian and a
humanistic individual, my
sympathies and heart go out
to those persons.

I took great offence, how-
ever, to a recent Editorial in
The Tribune dated the 30th
Décember, 2010 whereby the
writer asked the question:
‘Where is the Bahamian com-
passion?” Having been a life-

.- long reader and supporter of

that publication, especially
during the life of the late great
and irreplaceable Sir Etienne
Dupuch, I was flabbergasted
to read the same.

There are no other people
like Bahamians. Yes, we have
our sets of personal: and
national problems, but when-
ever the occasion arises for
us to show empathy for others
we do so in an exemplary
manner, bar none. For gen-
erations we have borne and
tolerated the proliferation of

_ illegal Haitian shanty towns

throughout our major islands.



For countless years sus-
pected illegal immigrants,
inclusive of Haitians and their
children, whom no govern-
ment seems to want to regu-
larize, have taken advantage
of our educational and health

‘care systems. Many of them

erect shacks and other
dwellings on land which they

_ don’t own or lease. Hundreds

of them ‘are ,now self
employed as hackers and tele-
phone card vendors without
regard or respect to our immi-
gration laws. Others have

integrated into the Bahami-

an society and have entered
the middle and upper classes.
Yet, the misguided editori-

al writer questions: “Where -

is the compassion of Bahamj-
ans?” The Bible has admon-
ished nations over the cen-
turies in this vein: “To thine
own-self be true.” Many of us
are able to remember the hur-
ricanes which devastated
Grand Bahama. Our fellow
Bahamians down there are
still catching hell and suffering
from the effects, of those nat-
ural events. Several Bahami-
ans lost their lives when the
cranes were demolished by a
twister.

Thousands are unable to
find any sorts of jobs.

Thousands of homeless and

mentally challenged Bahami- .

ans roam the major streets of
New Providence and Grand
Bahama on a daily basis.
Hundreds were let go from

their jobs over the past three |
' years and many have lost

their homes and personal dig-
nity. Where are the editorials
in The Tribune lamenting
these events and where is the

compassion .by so-called.

Christian Bahamians for their
fellow citizens? When Haiti
had the earthquake a promi-
nent alleged web shop owner
sent a 1/4 million, and more,
down to Haiti. What has he
ever given back to a fellow
Bahamian in adverse circum-
stances?

Successive governments
and their media allies have
aided and abetted the institu-

tion and development of ille-
gal Haitian settlements in this
nation on all sorts of bogus
grounds. No doubt, some of
them are looking for political
brownie points, but should
they do so at the expense of
ordinary, decent and hard
working Bahamians? Hun-
dreds of Bahamian children
were threatened with expul-
sion from government oper-
ated schools .the other day
because their parents were
challenged in paying certain
fees. Now, the erstwhile Min-
ister of Education, et al, is
lamenting the fact that the
school uniforms and supplies
of children of illegal Haitian
‘parentage were destroyed in
the mysterious fire?

I cry shame on The Tri-
bune’s editorial writer, who,
obviously, is biased towards .
the ruling party and its lead-
ership. It’s sister publication,
The Nassau Guardian also,
periodically, provides propa-
ganda support to the domi-
nant party of today. This is
patently wrong. In my humble
view, newspapers are sup-
posed to be fair and balanced.
Don’t ask the trade unions
embroiled in a dispute down
at Bahamas Telecommunica-
tions Corporation that, how- -
.ever, as-they would laugh you
to scorn.

Persons who are illegally
here in the Bahamas should
not and must not be tolerated.
Yes, where and when com-
passion is necessary it should
be displayed but must we, col-

_lectively, cut off our noses to
spite our faces?

-Some 100 odd millions of
dollars were pledged to the
Republic of Haiti following
the recent earthquake.

Surely, the compassionate
fellow Haitians and their Pres-
ident could have sent a hun-
dred or so thousands of dol-
lars to assist their compatri-
ots? To God then, in all of
these things, be the glory!

Nevertheless, it frustrates me to know that persons have
the audacity to take something that does not belong to

no remorse.

GB tourism performs

‘fairly well’ despite
air arrivals decrease

By DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport Reporter
dmaycock@tribunemedia.net



FREEPORT - Despite a significant
decrease in air arrivals in 2010, Grand
Bahama’s tourism industry has per-
formed “fairly well,” according to offi-
cials.

Tourism officials reported that the
drop-off in air arrivals had a significant
impact on the overall tourism figures for
Grand Bahama, which fell short of the
one million visitor mark.

However, Tourism Director General

_David Johnson noted that the increase in ©

cruise arrivals and cruise stop-over
arrivals has made up for the loss in air
arrivals.

“Given the state of the industry over-
all, I can say that Grand Bahama had a
fair performance,” he reported to the
media.

“We are not celebrating profits and
any strong growth, but Grand Bahama
has survived and been able to hold its
own by holding the industry at current
levels under very difficult circum-
stances.’

The tourism executive said that
demand drives airlifts, and the Grand
Bahama tourism product has not been
competitive enough to create a turn-
around.

Mr Johnson told ZNS radio that his
ministry is now seeking to come up with
a strategy to differentiate Grand Bahama
from other islands in the Bahamas by
marketing it as an “all inclusive” desti-
nation.

“The all inclusive éongept seems to be
thriving. It is one area we should con-
tinue to explore. '

“If you can imagine an all inclusive
offer in Grand Bahama where (persons)
are not confined to one hotel as in
Jamaica and other places, and are able to
roam between 10 to 20 restaurants at
various properties and facilities through
the island, that, I think, would be a
strong differentiation for Grand Bahama.

“And all of the properties would ben-
efit tremendously from it if they can exe-
cute it well enough.

“We are resuming our efforts to come
up with a very effective execution of that
strategy, that is the most immediate task
we are taking on for 2011,” he said.

reported: the stabbing of 22-
year-old Mitchell Nini, a
Canadian tourist who was
attacked after attempting to
catch a man who had
robbed his friend.

Mr Nini told The Tribune
that the group was getting
into their car after leaving
the club when the robbery
took place.

The stabbing occurred in
the area of Marlin Drive,

thief and was accosted by a
man who jumped out of a
car with a knife.

Mr Nini, a college student,

Lisa Bullard, a spokesper-
son for Club Luna, told The
Tribune yesterday that the
club ‘ ‘wishes a speedy Tecov-
ery” for Mr Nini:

Noting that the attack did
not take place “in or near”
the Club itself, Ms Bullard
said “close to 4,000 people
attended” the Black Out
party, organised by Kenny
Mackey, and there were “no
incidents in or around the
club, including our parking
lot.”

“We just wanted to let the

‘public know that they can
feel safe when they come ‘

here,” said the spokesper-

Ms Bullard added that the
club had its own security and
police made’ checks at the
yenue for security purposes

‘throughout the night.

She added that a request
was made for police to
patrol in the general area

and “outskirts” of the club

during the event.

“The only disappointment
is that this did not occur and
we do hope that in the
future we might have even
more cooperation from the

police to help stave offsuch _

crimes,” said Ms Bullard.

THE Bahamas National
Trust says the extended pow-
ers it has been granted by
parliament are “vital” to its
efforts to protect and pre-
serve the environment.

Last month, the BNT was
given explicit legislative
authority to advise both the
public and private sectors on
sustainable development
issues and policies.

The new Bahamas Nation- ’

al Trust Act, introduced by
Environment Minister Earl
Deveaux in October, was
approved by Parliament in
December and will come into
effect early in the New Year.
It marks the first revision of

the organisation’s governing
law in 51 years. ©

' The BNT was created in
1959, primarily to protect and
manage designated land and
sea areas “of beauty, or nat-
ural or historic interest ... for
the benefit and enjoyment
of the Bahamas”.

The amended Act now
specifically authorises the
BNT “to advise both the gov-
ernment and the private sec-
tor generally on development
issues and policies; and con-
servation, environmental,
biodiversity, natural and cul-
tural heritage and resource
management issues.”

Other:amendments seek to
strengthen the BNT’s ability
to manage national parks and
enforce conservation regula-
tions; and to modernise it’s
organisational structure.

“The Bahamas of today is

very different from what it.

was in 1959, in terms of
human population and pres-
our natural
resources,” said BNT presi-
dent Neil McKinney. “These
amendments are a result of
actual problems that we
faced over the years, and we
are grateful tothe Minister
of the Environment and the
Attorney-General for their
support in completing this

vital reform.“

Amendments

Most significantly, the new
Act empowers.the BNT to
prohibit or regulate activities

. on Jand:or on the sea béd in

protected areas. Penalties for
breaching park regulations
now include fines of up to
$100,000 or ‘six months
imprisonment, plus confisca-

{. . tion of goods and vessels.. *

"Our current national park
system protects about one

per cent of the country's total,

land and marine territory,"
Mr McKinney said. "But the
government is committed to

protecting 20 per cent of.

Bahamian land and sea areas
by the year 2020 and this will

translate into significant addi-
- tional responsibilities for the
' BNT. It also means that our

. “The environmental stakes
are much higher today,” said

Pericles Maillis, a lawyer and '
past president of the BNT

who .led the legislative
review. “The costs of reme-
dial action are high and dam-
age can be irreversible.
Development pressure on
private lands and marine
areas adjacent to national
parks is rising and this is
sometimes exacerbated by
confusion as to jurisdiction.
We need to guard our her-

-itage with teeth.”

. Weaponry

The ‘Act widens the types
of weaponry that cannot be
used within national parks.

These now include “explo-
sives, fireworks, firearms,
harpoon guns, cross-bow or
longbow arrows, slingshots
or the throwing or discharge
of missiles or the use of har-
poons lances, grains or gigs,
and spears including spears
discharged by Hawaiian sling
or spear gun.”

The BNT can also prohib-
it modern transportation
methods such as all-terrain
vehicles, motorcycles, jet skis,
air boats and ultra-light air-
craft, which were uncommon

. Or non- -existent in 1959.

When the BNT was creat-
ed, the concept of a total no-
take.zone was not necessari-
ly in contemplation, and lan-
guage in the original Act has
often frustrated efforts to
prevent the harvesting or
exploitation of protected bio-
logical resources.

- The revised Act allows the
BNT to prohibit “hunting,
fishing, trapping, hauling with
nets or bolos of any kind,
spearing, striking, harassing,
chasing or driving or shoot-
ing, touching, taking or gath-
ering by any means any flora
or fauna, including the eggs,

nest, young or larvae or

seeds, roots or, cuttings there-
of” on land or-sea.

The BNT also-now has the
authority to prohibit or reg-
ulate film production in
national parks to. prevent

damage to the environment. .

The introduction ‘of inva-
sive species (such as rac-
coons, cats or lionfish) to
fragile island ecosystems is
of great concern and can be
devastating for indigenous
wildlife. The BNT now. has
the power to prohibit and

-Temove such.animals - includ-
ing livestock’- from protected
areas.

"The introduction of rac-

coons - originally as pets -
- onto’ the Abaco mainland

was an unmitigated disaster,"

Mr Maillis said. "They repro-
duce quickly and destroy:the
native wildlife. There are
reports of Cobras being sight-

‘ed.on Abaco and other exot-

ate, opposition



Earl Deveaux

executive director Eric.
Carey.

“These new areas and
annexations increased our
management responsibility to
over a million acres of land
and sea territory, so a revi-
sion of the Act became a pri-
ority to help us achidve our
conservation goals.”

Among housekeeping mea-
sures included in the revised
Act is an expansion of the
BNT’s governing council
from 21 to 29 members, with
15 elected and 14 appointed
by government agencies and

- scientific organisations.

“The increase in
appointees allows represen-
tatives from the College of |
the Bahamas and the Uni-
versity of Florida to be added
to the council without losing
the prestige and scientific
connections of.the founding
members. A larger number

' of elected members will also

allow for staggered periods
of service to enhance conti-
nuity and institutional mem-
ory.” said Lynn Gape ,
deputy executive director.

Conduct Code

A code of conduct will be
developed for council mem-
bers, as well as procedures for
the removal of those who may .
be in breach of such code.

The Act empowers the
BNT to. update its election
procedures. This will eventu- -
ally allow the general mem-
bership to vote by postal, elec-
tronic or proxy balloting to
enable participation at annu-
al general meetings without
requiring.a physical presence.

‘The revised Act also seeks
to protect the public interest
by addressing encroachment
on the edges of national -
parks, as well as the enclosure
of land and pasturing of live-
stock within parks. Squatting
on and adverse possession of:
BNT lands is now prohibited.

While the new legislation
was being debated in the Sen-
‘senator
Jerome Fitzgerald questioned
whether the BNT is "worthy"
of extended powers. |

Ministry of Health to unleash
major campaign against obesity

By MATT MAURA

PUBLIC Health officials
from the Ministry of Health
‘and the Department of Pub-
lic Health are expected to
“launch a major campaign

against obesity early this
year, aimed at winning the
“battle of the bulge” among
Bahamians.

The programme will be
launched under the auspices
of the National Chronic Dis-
ease Prescription Drug Plan,
which is administered by the
National Insurance Board.

It will be an expansion of
some of the work already
begun by the Healthy
Lifestyles Secretariat of the
Ministry of Health and the
Department of Public
Health, which was geared
toward education and aware-
ness and is part of a far-
reaching plan to. reverse the

increasing incidences of,

_chronic, non-communicablé

diseases currently negative-
ly affecting Bahamians.

Obesity and its complica-

. tions, including chronic, non-

communicable diseases such

-as diabetes, heart disease and

hypertension, have become’

a major cause of concern for
-healthcare officials as 70 per
_cent of Bahamians are either
_obese and/or overweight,
_according to most recent sta-

tistics.

Chronic, non-communica-
ble diseases and their attend-
‘ing complications account for

60 per cent of the deaths in

the Bahamas.

Health officials say the dol-

lar cost could be in the bil-
lions of dollars in terms of
treatment, follow-up care,
loss of jobs and therefore

Health Minister Dr
Hubert Minnis said the “war
on obesity” campaign has
been designed to make
Bahamians aware of the risk
and dangers of obesity and
‘being overweight can present
to individuals, companies,
‘families, finances, the coun-

the country itself if left
unchecked.

health lifestyle choices,
healthy eating, healthy food
preparation and the benefits
of diet and exercise.

The National Chronic Dis-
ease Prescription Drug Plan
was implemented in the sum-
mer of 2010.

“The types of foods
Bahamians eat, the way they
prepare those foods, the large
amounts they eat and a lack
of exercise are all major con-
tributors to Bahamians being
obese and/or overweight,” Dr
Minnis said.

“While we understand that
there are some healthy foods
that are_expensive, Bahami-
ans can still make healthy

_changes to their diets by find-

ing alternative foods to eat,
finding alternative ways to
prepare those foods, eating at
practical time frames and by
reducing the portions they
eat.

“Those changes, when |

incorporated with exercise,
can have a profound impact
on healthy lifestyles,” Dr
Minnis said.

The Health Minister said
late-night eating — a habit of

‘many Bahamians — is partic-

ularly: unhealthy. iow. cose

“A lot. of persons, espe-
cially professional pérsons,
tend to have bad eating
habits in that they arrive
home late at night, eat late
and then subsequently go to
bed right after they are fin-
ished eating. That is not good
at all and only adds to the
problem,” he said.

Dr Minnis said incorporat-
ing exercise into one’s daily
or weekly regimen will pay
tremendous dividends.

He encouraged individuals
and families to take advan-
tage of the green spaces cre-

to launch exercise pro-

“Those persons who can-
not afford to pay gym fees

Top ten legal resolutions
to make for the New Year

By RIONDA GODET,
LLB, LLM’

Let’s face it! s
Bahamians are notorious for putting
‘things off, but 2011 promises to be different!
Gone are those resolutions that-had no bite
to them. Just follow the Halsbury Cham-
bers’ Top Ten Resolutions: Five for you
and Five for your business. Before you know
it, you will be setting a course that, when you
come to the end of the year, you will be
able to look back and feel as if you have
actually accomplished something. Here we

go!

TOP 5 LEGAL MUST DO’S FOR
YOURSELF

1. Draw and/or update your Will

Why leave evervtiung you have. worked
so hard for to chance or even worse,
escheat?

Drawing a Will certainly brings clarity
to your estate and takes a lot of confusion
and emotion out of the equation. It is the
time for you to look back on your life and
reward those people who have always been
there for you, and who you feel will appre-
ciate your hard earned assets — whether fam-
ily members or not!

Either way, do not be fooled by the old
Bahamian superstition that suggests immi-
nent death the minute you sign your Last
Will and Testament! ‘If you figure you are
going to die someday, does when really mat-
ter?

Find a good attorney and pull together all
of your bank accounts, land papers, share
certificates, etc, to aid in easy property iden-
tification.

Know who your intended beneficiaries
are and their respective addresses. Your
Executor/trix should be a person in whom
you have absolute confidence. The good
news is, even if you change your mind mid-
year or acquire additional assets, you can
always just create a new Will. The important
thing is to have one. That goes for you too,
young people!

2. Get all of your land papers properly
registered
This is critical. Most people put this off
because of the cost factor. One thing is true
in life - whether you pay now or pay later,
either way, you will pay. It is better that
you get it done now. In this regard, here
- are two things you need to be aware of:

(a) Stamp Duty: This is a charge payable
to the Public Treasury upon completion of
the purchase of property or obtaining a loan
from a bank. Please note that stamp duty on
conveyances is calculated at higher per-
' centages than mortgages and it is

important to pay the same as soon as pos-
sible in order to avoid late stamp duty fees
charged any time after six months. The

longer you wait to pay stamp duty, the more -

late stamp fees you will have to pay.





CHAMB [: RS

Counsel te Antorneys-at-Lasy + Notertes Public

(b) Recording Fees: The Registrar Gen-
eral will only accept documents for record-
ing if stamp duties are paid first. The record-
ing process is a notice to all persons as to the
ownership of a parcel or lot of land. If two
persons purchase the same parcel or lot of
land, the person that records their docu-
ments first is recognized as the owner of it.
Suffice it' to say, “a stitch in time saves nine,”

' or the first in time generally prevails.

3, It is time to move on

Come on! You have been separated now
for nearly seven years. Now may be the best
time to sever those ties and get on with your
life. Do not misunderstand me — we are all
advocates for the nuclear family, but some-

times you have to be real. If, after seven ..

years (may be more or may be less — it is
honestly up to you), your “spouse” has not

‘made the decision to move back perma-

nently, it is highly unlikely that they will do
so this year.

There is an old saying — “Why buy the
whole cow when you can have the milk for
free?”

Stop hanging on and work towards an —

amicable property adjustment settlement
and determine what is in the best interest of
the children, if any. Get a good attorney
who can help you keep balance in this. ©

4. Resolve debt collection/foreclosure
issues

People! You know you owe money! Do
not let “them” call you — Go and get your
business fixed. Your troubles will not go

away just because you choose to ignore them °

or bury your head in the sand. Try to nego-
tiate more affordable terms and conditions
or consolidate your outstanding debt. The

financial institutions understand that these.

are difficult times and are far more inclined
to be cooperative when you make the first
move. Once you have established your new
agreement, modify your lifestyle so that you

can at all times, stay current. This means —

you may miss out on the weekly spa retreat
or hairdo, but trust me, the interest that
accrues on a debt really needs no addition-

al company!

5. Acquire generational property
We all know the age old story here. You
lived on the property from since “you knew

your- self!” You can even point out the

tamarind tree that your great grandfather

planted, from which he plucked the switch-
es to “tan” your pappy’s hide. Yep, we know
the story. Show me the papers! Unless you
can prove long tenure via the Quieting
Process, anyone else’s claim is as good as

CAYMAN SSE USSG



IN THIS PHOTO released by the Cayman Islands Department of Tourism, divers watch the sinking of the
USS Kittiwake, a 1945-vintage submarine rescue ship, off the Cayman Islands, Wednesday Jan. 5, 2011.
Contractors flooded the decommissioned U.S. Navy ship to sink it in the waters off the Cayrnan Islands
where officials hope the vessel will attract tourists and fish.

KINGSTON, Jamaica

CONTRACTORS began
flooding a decommissioned
U.S. Navy ship Wednesday to
sink it in the clear waters off
the Cayman Islands, where
officials hope the vessel will
attract tourists and fish, accord-
ing to Associated Press.

Plans called for the USS Kit-
tiwake, a 1945-vintage subma-
rine rescue ship, to rest on a
sandy bottom off Grand Cay-
man's Seven Mile Beach. The
47-foot-tall (14-meter) ship will
be at a depth of 62 feet (19
meters), so the top deck should
be close to the Caribbean Sea's
surface, making it easily acces-
sible for snorkelers and divers.

Crews were carefully flood-
ing the battered hulk in hopes
the 2,200-ton (1,995 metric ton)
ship would settle upright. Holes
were punched in the hull and
large pumps were gradually
piping sea water into the ship,

which was compartmentalized
into three sections.

"I'm on pins and needles.
We're trying to keep the ship
on a level, even keel so hope-
fully it will go down nice and
smooth," project manager Nan-
cy Easterbrook said during a
phone interview from a nearby
boat on Seven Mile Beach.

The Kittiwake's scuttling
raised mixed emotions in Jon
Glatstein, who was a sailor on
the vessel from 1984 to 1986.
He traveled to this wealthy

British Caribbean territory to

watch his old ship sink beneath
the waves.

"This is the first time I've

seen the ship in 25 years, and
she's in pretty rough shape. But
she's been serving divers all her
life and now she's going to con-
tinue doing just that. That's got
to be a whole lot better than
getting melted down for razor
blades," said Glatstein, now an
IT manager in Miami.

About'40 boats carrying
locals and tourists circled
around the ship to watch it
sink. .

Several parasailers enjoyed
a birds-eye view under clear
skies.

Officials had hoped-to sink
the ship Tuesday, but windy
weather and choppy seas
forced a postponement.

Premier McKeeva Bush said
the operation "represents the
single most significant occur-
rence in a decade for Cayman's
dive industry."

Besides being a lure for
tourists, the Kittiwake will be
an artificial reef that can shelter
fish and crustaceans in waters
known for excellent visibility
and abundant sea life.

betts, a Russian frigate sunk
off the coast of Cayman Brac in
1996, is now decorated with a

yours. You may be sure, this sort of action
does not come cheaply and the Courts will
apply intense scrutiny to any application,
but if you know the history, now is the time
to get it done while the relative Affiants are
still alive to assist you in the process. Time
waits for no man.

TOP 5 LEGAL MUST DO’S FOR
YOUR BUSINESS

6. Have a clear vision for your business

No matter the size of your empire, every-
thing rises and falls with Leadership, and
one thing that leaders do, is plan. You’ve
heard it before: Fail to plan, plan to fail. It
is your choice. To move to the next level,
you have got to have clear, actionable, mea-
surable and specific goals that guide your
every effort. Without these, you are simply
a rudderless ship on life’s rolling sea, being
driven to and fro and tossed with every gust
of wind and swelling tide. This is not a good
situation to be in. Engage a professional
that can help establish goals that work for
you and your employees.

_ 7, Incorporate your company

‘You have had your business going for -

years now. Do the right thing — treat it like
a real business and get it incorporated. In the
event of any legal action, the action will be
taken against your company, and not you
directly. This is the best way to protect your
interest, as the incorporation of a company
assists in limiting the extent of your liability.
Any action, as it were, will be waged against
the company and its assets, as opposed to
you and your personal assets. A word to
the wise is sufficient.

8. Review all of your contracts & compa-

nyc aument.

Think about it. How old are your “cur-
rent” documents? When last did you revise
them to fit today’s working environment?

‘Are you keeping pace with changing laws
and regulations? Do, all of your employees -
_ have a Contract of Employment, complete ~

with job description, Employee Handbook,
Compliance statement, etc? If not, why
not? This is a definite must to clearly estab-

lish mutual expectations and responsibili-

ties shared between the employer and
employee. The sooner you do this, the bet-
ter.

9. Consider arbitration/mediation for dis-
putes

For many, the notion of private and bind-
ing arbitration provides a genuine alternative
to litigation. Everybody wins in this equa-
tion. Most Industrial Agreements have this
clause as relates to work place disputes and
more recently; the Arbitration Act actually
makes it

easier for businesses to have their mat-
ters heard without the need for costly liti-
gation from a breach of contract standpoint.
Mediation opportunities may even exist “in-
house.” A number of companies host inter-
nal grievance review processes wheréby
employees may have their matter heard

before an independent impartial panel,

which has the power to either uphold, over-
turn or modify a decision made. To save
your litigation dollars related to employee
disputes, this truly is a viable option.

10. Review the Health and Safety in the
Workplace Act
It is absolutely amazing the number of
employers who do not even know about the
existence of this Act, yet, a careful review
and application of the same can save you
hundreds of thousands of dollars of liability.
Think about it this way, creating a safer
work place for your employees saves $$$$ in

paying for non-productive time.

Check your floor surfaces. Watch out for
those leaks and oil residues. Properly iden-
tify hazardous or. potentially hazardous
areas, chemicals and materials and train
your staff in proper usage and/or association
with the same. Provide and enforce the use
of protective safeguards and clothing for all
associated with these areas. Also train on
proper use of special equipment and ensure

. that employees understand the risks associ-

ated with improper usage.

Make sure that your employees sign a
statement acknowledging the fact of their
training and their intent to be governed
thereby.

Your business is only as good as the
advice you receive in operating it.

THE Broadcasting Corpo-
ration of the Bahamas has
issued a statement advising
that contrary to the “erro-
neous news release issued by
the Progressive Liberal Par-
ty,” televised news broadcasts
from the Northern Service
have not been discontinued.

Rather, the statement said,
Northern Service will continue
to produce a 30-minute
regional .television newscast,
but only for a regional audi-
ence.

The change in broadcast’

format is to take effect Mon-
day, December 10. Other pro-
gramming changes will be
introduced at the same time,
the BCB said.

“The regional television
news broadcast approach is
no different to the
local/regional broadcast of
Northern Service radio news
that has taken place for ages
and continues to take place.

"This reconfiguration of our
news product, while seeking
to expand rather than curtail
the production and distribu-
tion of regional news by ZNS,
saves the corporation trans-

LOCAL NEWS

ZNS Northern Service televised news
broadcasts ‘have not been discontinued’

Broadcasting Corporation

of the Bahamas responds

to ‘erroneous’ PLP release

mission costs,” explained BCB
chairman Michael Moss.

"A regional newscast will
still be produced, and major
news items from the northern
Bahamas will continue to feed
into the national newscast."

He noted that when the
Northern Service was estab-
lished in 2009, the intent was
to provide a regional news
broadcast for the northern
Bahamas.

“Tt fulfilled that mnadare
for only a'short time, and then
lost its way. The Northern Ser-
vice newscast essentially
became .a local, Grand
Bahama-centric newscast,
broadcast to ‘the entire
Bahamas. Viewers were, as a

consequence often subjected ©

to receiving a double-dose of
Northern Bahamas news as
major items from the North-
ern Service newscast were

then rebroadcast nationwide
as part of the national news-
cast.”

When the board began
looking at ways to restructure
the corporation to meet the
government's financial guide-
lines and mandate to become

a true public service broad-.

cast, the recommendation was
made to eliminate production
of a 30-minute Monday to Fri-
day newscast from Grand
Bahama in favour of retain-

. ing a small team in Freeport to

gather news for use in the
national newscast, Mr Moss
said. ;
This recommendation was
later modified, resulting in
incremental increased annual
costs of about $500,000 while

‘saving. 12 Northern Service

jobs.
Initially, the new regional
newscasts will primarily focus

on Abaco and Grand
Bahama, but will expand to
Bimini over time, the chair-

_man said.

Major news items from the
region will continue to be fea-
tured on the national news-
cast, he said.

The BCB statement added:
“ZNS has.been challenged to
increase its revenue efforts in
the northern Bahamas in
order to sustain this service.

“From a practical stand-
point, Northern Service
regional news will air on ZNS
Channel 13, but will be seen
only on Grand Bahama and
Abaco initially. The Northern
Service will be authorised to
break into national transmis-
sion for 30 minutes Monday
to Friday on the Cable
Bahamas system to broadcast
a regional newscast for its cov-
erage area. National pro-
gramming will continue unin-
terrupted to all other islands.

“In the wake of its recent
restructuring, the Corporation
has begun a wide-ranging
operational review aimed at
securing a sustainable future
for ZNS as a public: service

broadcaster. Such a transfor-
mation requires a major shift
in resources, attitudes, work
habits and responsibilities, as
well as the implementation of
a new legislative and regula-
tory framework.

“Over the past three years,
the board has sought to bring
some measure of financial and
professional accountability to
a public corporation that has
never had to face economic
reality or operate indepen-
dently. In terms of program-
ming, we have sought, within
our limited means, to expand
educational and current affairs
shows. We have converted
ZNS.1 (1540 AM now simul-
cast on 104.5 FM) into a truly
national service, featuring
exclusively Bahamian music
and talk. And we have begun
the task of consolidating the
corporation's additional radio
services in order to strengthen
our core product.

“The board and manage-
ment are currently engaged in
the development of a realis-
tic business plan to help the
corporation achieve its new
mission.”

‘Record arrivals and deficient equipment’ led to airport chaos

FROM page one

-wait so long on the tarmac he

had to return to the terminal
to. refuel. He said there were
instances of passengers miss-
ing connections due to the
“exorbitant” delays. Some
passengers had to wait two

hours for take off on flights

scheduled to last 15 minutes.
Roscoe Perpall, president
of the Bahamas Air Traffic

- Controller’s Union, “acknowl-

edged” the delays on the hol-
iday weekend, in particular on
January 2, when there were

two to three hour delays..’

He said a “high volume” of

traffic over the weekend mag-
nified some of the problems

| that have plagued the aviation

sector for decades.
Based on conservative esti-

‘mates, at least 700 aircraft tax-
-ied through LPJA on Sunday,

said Mr Perpall. The average
density is 400, he said.
Vincent Vanderpool-Wal-
lace, Minister of Tourism and
Aviation, said he.was advised
there may have been record
numbers achieved in local air-
lift on the weekend; resulting
in usual delays; however, he
is waiting on confirmation on
the numbers.
‘Ground stops at Miami



International Airport, a main
hub for flights into the
Bahamas contributed to the
problems, according to Mr
Perpall.

“When the volume is high
the problems are magnified,

‘but the challenges are always
' there. The density just mag-
‘nified the problem, * said Mr

Perpall.

Some of the delays were
“avoidable” had the necessary
systems been in place, said air
traffic controllers at a press
briefing yesterday.

“It is a big problem, but the

‘attention and priority it is get-

ting is not adequate to address
the problem,” said Mr Perpall.
“We are working with mal-

and deficient com- '

¢ up to par,” he

said, also noting that automa-
tion is a desperate need.

Mr Vanderpool- -Wallace

said he “understands their

frustration,” but the industry is —

finally getting the attention it
needs. The minister referred
the $50 million loan from the
International Development
Bank (IDB) to restructure the
aviation sector. .

“There are several issues
that have been out there for a
long period of time, but we
are on the road to fixing them.
The government has commit-
ted to make substantial and

. Significant improvements.
‘That is very much a part of

what we are committed to
do,” he said.

A new overall sector policy
is in the works, said-Mr Van-
derpool-Wallace, with the
government working to arrive
at a white paper, from a green
paper already developed.

In a country with 64 air-
ports, a residential population
of 350,000 and a visiting pop-
ulation of five million, he said
there was a need to rationalise
the aviation sector on the
whole.

The new policy will “opti-

mise the benefits to the
Bahamian people from avia-
tion development,” he said.

In the meantime, air traffic
officials say the Bahamas has
escaped an incident in large
part thanks to manual back
up systems, new technology
in place on board aircraft, the
“blessing of clear skies” and
vigilant pilots.

“What we have is a group of
professional persons that are

’ bending over backwards to

ensure maximum safety,” he
said. But with deficient equip-
ment, Mr Perpall said the pro-
fessionals could only do so
much.

The situation could have
been worse. If the radar
equipment failed, air traffic
officials would have had to
“use increased separation
standards” and the waits
would have been longer.

The possibility of this still
exists, said Mr Perpall. Indus-
try professionals had their fin-

gers crossed all holiday sea-'

son, hoping the 25-year-old
radar equipment used today
would last through the New

Year. It did, but the threat i is

not gone.

_ The sauipaient was

installed in 1985. Although it
has received some upgrades

. over the years, Mr Perpall said

it was built with a 10-year
lifespan.
’ There have been upgrades
to the antennas and other
mechanical equipment over
the years, but the “interface
for the radar system has had
no upgrades,” he said.
Stepping into the local air
traffic control room is like
“walking back into history,”
said Lorenzo Carroll, another
air traffic controller.

“We don’t want them to |

wait until the international
community black: lists the
country and issues aviation
advisories to see some imme-
diacy. However, it seems as

though ‘that is the only way

the attention will come,” said
Mr Perpall.

A GREAT START TO NEW YEAR FOR
FAMILY WHO FACED EVICTION, DEBT

FROM page one

my hand of gratitude, for the many gifts that you gave my kids
for the holiday — one that they have not had in years. I really
appreciate it from the depths of my heart.”

Although they had been served an eviction notice
for January 4, an anonymous donor paid more than
$4,000 to clear the overdue rent accrued at the fami-
ly’s home in New Hope Road, Joan's Heights. The
good deed will allow the family to remain there as
efforts continue to build them a new home.

Mrs Thurston, 38, was diagnosed with breast cancer

early last year.

In November, her husband Peter, 42, was diagnosed .
with Hodgkins Lymphoma, another form of cancer
that affects the immune system. |

Although she has remained positive throughout
their ordeal, Peter’s diagnosis was devastating for
Consuela because he was to be the sole guardian of

their children — should her treatment be unsuccessful.

The couple have two boys and three girls, aged 10,
nine, eight, six and two. Mrs Thurston had two daugh-
ters before her marriage, they are now aged 16 and 19.

Mr Thurston, a self-employed mason, became the
family’s sole earner after Mrs Thurston, a Solomon's
Super Centre employee for more than 15 wears, began
her radiation treatment.

After he was diagnosed, and subsequently hospital-
ized, the family buckled under the pressure of living
expenses and growing medical bills. Although she is
no longer on medical leave, Mrs Thurston was
reduced to half days as she recovers from chemo
treatments.

After two months, it is still unclear when Mr
Thurston will be able to leave. the hospital and reunite
with his family.

Now the sole care-giver of their six children, Mrs
Thurston said she finds the strength to keep going
through prayer and staunch faith.

After learning of the Thurston's unfortunate situa-
tion, a community-led initiative was launched to con-.
struct a home using building plans the family had
approved but were financially unable to build.

Mrs Thurston added: “All the people that donated
money, special thanks is extended to you, for you
don’t know how much help it was and still is for me
and my family. I appreciate the hands that will be
helping us get the one thing that my heart so desires

‘and that’s a home for me and my family.”

The joint effort by Miracle Revival Fellowship pas-
tor Howard Stuart, and widespread community mem-
bers, is spearheaded by Dwight Armbrister, the host
of ZNS morning show Inspiration Station on 107.9FM.

Anyone who can provide any type of assistance to
the Thurstons can contact Consuela at 544-3444 or
donate to the Scotiabank branch on East Street and
Soldier Road, account number 19303. An account has
been set up at FYP Builder's Mall, Wulff Road, to
fund necessary construction materials in the name of
Peter or Consuela Thurston.

Laing hits back







NEIL DARLING AND KATARO THOMAS...

TWO CHARGED WITH HOUSEBREAKING,
STEALING AND CAUSING DAMAGE

FREEPORT: Two men charged with housebreaking, stealing
and causing damage appeared in court yesterday.

Neil Darling, 20, of Caravel Beach, and Kataro Thomas, 21, of
Fiddler’s Green, appeared iri Court One before Magistrate Deb-
bye Ferguson.

Both pleaded not guilty to the charges. Darling was remanded
to Fox Hill Prison until February 14. Thomas was granted $6,000
bail with surety. Darling also appeared separately in Court Two
before Magistrate Andrew Forbes.

He pleaded not guilty to two counts of housebreaking and
stealing, and was remanded until February 14 for trial.

ASSERTIONS from Philip
'Brave' Davis that government's
deal with Cable & Wireless over
BTC is shrouded in secrecy are
"laughable," said State Finance Min-
ister Zhirvargo Laing.

He noted that Mr Davis repre-

‘sented Bluewater Ventures Ltd —

the group chosen by the former gov-
ernment to purchase 49 per cent of
BTC in 2007 — as an attorney and
should declare his interests in BTC's
privatisation every time he speaks
publicly on the matter.

"Brave Davis made two points (on
BTC's privatisation) one was that
we were operating in secrecy which
I would find laughable given the
secrecy that surrounded the Blue-

water deal," said the Marco Cit
MP. ;

"Again he was the lawyer for
Bluewater and a government MP so
to hear him talk about secrecy. . .is
untrue. We signed the MOU and
announced it the same day where
no such attempts were made by
themselves (the PLP)."

While as a guest on the radio pro-
gramme “Leading Voices” with
attorney Fayne Thompson, Mr
Davis said it is not too late for the
government to stop its sale of 51 per
cent of BTC to Cable and Wireless
and instead sell those shares to a
Bahamian consortium.

He also questioned the trans-
parency of the deal.

at ‘Brave’ Davis
BIC assertions

"It is never too late. And what
aggravates the debacle is the fact
that this whole arrangement is
shrouded in secrecy.

"For example, my recollection is
that within days of the announce-
ment that a MOU (memorandum of »
understanding) had been entered
into, you had the prime minister say- --
ing that they were not aware of any-
thing happening, and you had Min-
ister Zhivargo Laing saying he was *
not aware of anything happening.
Then, out of the blue, here comes
Cable and Wireless. So the question
is: Where did it start? When did it
start? And how did Cable and Wire-
less get to the table?" Mr Davis
asked.

Panel: Giant oil spill yore
could happen again

DINA CAPPIELLO,
Associated Press
HARRY R. WEBER,
Associated Press
WASHINGTON

Decisions intended to save time and
money created an unreasonable amount
of risk that triggered the largest offshore oil
spill in U.S. history, a disaster that could
happen again without significant reforms by
industry and government, the presidential
panel investigating the BP blowout con-
cluded Wednesday.

The commission findings — the result
of a probe requested by President Barack
Obama after the April 20 rig explosion —
described systemic problems within the off-
shore energy industry and government reg-
ulators who oversee it.

Poor decisions led to technical problems

that the commission, and inquires by BP’

and Congress, have identified as con-
tributing to the accident that killed 11 peo-
ple and led to more than 200 million gallons
of oil spewing from BP's well a mile
beneath the Gulf of Mexico.

BP, Halliburton and Transocean, the
three key companies involved with the well

and the rig that exploded, each made indi- '

vidual decisions that increased risks of a
blowout but saved significant time or mon-
ey.

But ultimately, the Deepwater Horizon
disaster came down to a single failure, the
panel says — management. When deci-
sions were made, no one was considering
the risk they were taking.

In one example cited by the commission,
a BP request to set an "unusually deep
cement plug" was approved by the then-
Minerals Management Service in 90 min-
utes. That decision is one of the nine tech-
nical and engineering calls the commission
says increased the risk of a blowout.

"The blowout was not the product of a
series of abberational decisions made by a
rogue industry or government officials that
could not have been anticipated or expect-
ed to occur again. Rather, the root causes

are systemic, and absent significant reform ~

in both industry practices and government
policies, might well recur," the commission
concluded in a 48-page excerpt of its final
report, obtained by The Associated Press.
A final report is due to the president Jan.

Kendra Barkoff said the report focused on

ments. "The agency has taken unprece-
dented steps and will continue to make the
changes necessary to restore the Ameri-
can people's confidence in the safety and
‘environmental soundness of oil and gas
drilling and production on the Outer Con-
tinental Shelf, while balancing our nation's
important energy needs," Barkoff said in a
statement. \ :

BP PLC in a statement issued Wednes-
day said the report, like its own investiga-
tion, found the accident was the result of

multiple causes, involving multiple com- _

panies, but the company was working with
regulators "to ensure the lessons learned
from Macondo lead to improvements in
operations and contractor services in deep-
water drilling."

Transocean Ltd., which owned the rig
being leased by BP to perform the drilling,
said in response to the commission's find-
ings that the "the procedures being con-
ducted in the final hours were crafted and

"But, who cares, it's done, end of story,
will probably be fine and we'll get a good
cement job," Cocales wrote, after he dis-
agreed with BP's decision to use fewer cen-
tralizers than recommended. Centralizers
are used to center the pipe to ensure a
good cement job. The cement failed at the
bottom of the Macondo well, allowing oil
and gas to enter it, according to investiga-
tions. :

The suggestion that the BP disaster may

not be an isolated incident runs counter to

assurances. by the oil industry, which has
worked hard to portray a accident as a
rare occurrence.

"This clearly was a rare incident," the .

president of the American Petroleum Insti-
tute, Jack Gerard, said Tuesday when his
organization published a new report urging
Congress and the Obama administration
to open more areas to oil and gas drilling.

Outside experts in technological disasters
were split by the report's excerpt. They
lauded the commission's focus on organi-
zational and managerial failures instead of
blaming the rig workers. But they were
divided whether the panel went far enough
in criticizing the companies for taking time-

‘and money-saving shortcuts.

Cleric who fought
the US returns to
[pag from exile

NAJAF, Iraq

Radical Shiite cleric Muqtada
al-Sadr, a fierce opponent of
the United States and head of
Iraq's most feared militia, came
home Wednesday after nearly
four years in self-imposed exile
in Iran, welcomed by hundreds
of cheering supporters in a
return that solidifies the rise of
his movement.

Al-Sadr's presence in Iraq
ensures he will be a powerful
voice in Iraqi politics as U.S.
forces leave the country. He left
Iraq in 2007 somewhat as a

. renegade, a firebrand populist
whose militiamen battled
American troops and Iraqi
forces. He returns a more legit-
imized figure, leading an orga-
nized political movement that is
a vital partner in the new gov-
ernment of Prime Minister
Nouri al-Maliki.

Al-Sadr can wield a bully
pulpit to put strong pressure on
al-Maliki — and is likely to
demand that no American
troops remain beyond their
scheduled final withdrawal date
at the end.of this year. His
return caused trepidation
among many Iraqis, particular-
ly Sunnis who remember vivid-
ly the sectarian killings carried
out by his militia, the Mahdi
‘Army, and believe he is a tool
of Iran. But his supporters were
jubilant. '

"He is our hero. We sacri-

‘ ficed for him. He said 'No' to
the Americans and fought the
Americans, and he is brave,"
said Mohammed Ali, among
the crowds who turned out to
greet al-Sadr in the Shiite holy
city of Najaf, south of Bagh-
dad. Al-Sadr visited the holy
shrine of Imam Ali, revered
among the country's Shiite
majority, wearing a black tur-

ban distinguishing him as one of |

the descendants ‘of Islam's
Prophet Muhammad, and sur-
rounded by a phalanx of body-
guards who attempted to hold
back a throng of supporters.

He also visited the grave of
his father, who was assassinated
during Saddam Hussein's rule,
before heading to his house.
Dozens of black-clad Mahdi
Army members spread out
through the neighborhood sur-
rounding his home.

FACING THE MEDIA: Security guard Alberto Alvarez, right,

- and his attorney Carl Douglas face reporters as they leave the

preliminary hearing for Michael Jackson’s doctor Conrad
Murray, charged in the death of the singer, at Los Angeles
Superior Court Wednesday, Jan. 5, 2011.

LINDA DEUTSCH,
AP Special Correspondent
LOS ANGELES

As Michael Jackson's lifeless body lay on a bed in his
palatial mansion, a bodyguard obeyed a frantic doctor's

‘Instructions to bag up medicine bottles and intravenous

bags and shield the Jackson children from seeing their father
— all before being told to call an ambulance, court testimony
revealed Wednesday.

Alberto Alvarez said he was the first security guard to
reach Jackson's room after word came that something was
wrong. He described a shocking scene.

The King of Pop was on his bed connected to an IV tube
and a urinary catheter. His eyes and mouth were open, and
Dr. Conrad Murray was leaning over him doing one-hand-
ed chest compressions to try to revive him.

Alvarez said he was "frozen" at the sight. ;

"I said, ‘Dr. Murray, what happened?' And he said, 'He
had a reaction. He had a bad reaction,'" Alvarez recalled.

The testimony came during a preliminary hearing to

determine if Murray, the singer's personal physician, will be

tried on a charge of involuntary manslaughter.

Authorities contend Murray gave Jackson a lethal dose of
the powerful anesthetic propofol and other sedatives in the
bedroom of his rented mansion before he died on June 25,
2009.

Deputy District Attorney David Walgren said in his open-
ing statement that Jackson was already dead when Murray
summoned help and tried to conceal his administering «
propofol to the pop star, ordering the bodyguard to colle

‘items before paramedics were called.

Murray was providing J ackson propofol roughly ' six times
a week since being hired as his physician in May 2009, as
Jackson prepared for a series of comeback concerts, Walgren.

‘In other testimony, paramedic Richard Sentiset, who
responded to Jackson's mansion the day he died, said Mur-
ray never mentioned he had given propofol to the singer.
Instead, the doctor said he had given Jackson lorazepam to
help him sleep and indicated the pop star was being treated
for dehydration, Senneff testified.

The paramedic testified that Murray's responses didn't ‘add
up, because the singer looked so pale and-thin that Senneff
thought he was a hospice patient.

Earlier, Alvarez recalled Jackson's children Paris and
Prince walking into the room during the effort to revive
their father.

"Paris screamed, 'Daddy!' and she started to cry. Dr.
Murray said, 'Get them out. Don't Jet them see him like
this,'" the bodyguard said.

Alvarez's voice choked as he described Paris crying and he
took a moment to compose himself.

"I said, ‘children, don't worry, we'll take care of this.'
And I escorted them out and left the door ajar," Alvarez
said. In the courtroom audience, Jackson's mother, Kather-
ine, dabbed at her eyes during the most detailed public
account yet of events surrounding the death of her son.
She came to court with her husband, Joe, and children
Randy, Janet and LaToya. They made no eye contact with
Murray across the courtroom. . ~

They heard Alvarez testify that he helped Murray bag the
medicine and saw an unidentified "white uy substance"
in the bottom of an intravenous bag.

"He just grabbed a handful of bottles, or sales and he
instructed me to put them in a bag," Alvarez testified,
adding that Murray also told him to place an intravenous bag.
into another sack.

"Is it true that 911 had not been called yet?" Walgren
asked, referring to the number for emergency services.

"That's true," Alvarez replied.

After collecting everything and bagging it, Alvarez said,
Murray told him to call an ambulance. The prosecutor then
played a recording of the call.

When the operator said to transfer Jackson to the floor,
Alvarez grabbed Jackson's legs and Murray grabbed his
upper body. He said at that point he noticed the IV in Jack-.
son's leg that had to be removed. Alvarez also saw that
Jackson had the urinary catheter.

Alvarez said Murray then asked him to give Jackson |:
chest compression, while Murray did mouth-to-mouth resus-
citation. Murray said, "'You know this is the first time I
give mouth-to-mouth but I have to do it because he's my
friend,'" Alvarez recalled.

"Did it appear he was breathing," Walgren asked.

"No sir," Alvarez said.

"His eyes and mouth were open?" the prosecutor asked.

"Yes," the witness said. ,

"Did he seem to be alive or dead?" Walgren asked.

"Dead, sir," Alvarez said.

In his opening statement Tuesday, Walgren said Murray
had waited as long as 21 minutes before paramedics were
called and that Jackson had died before help was sum-
moned. The testimony could support the prosecutors' argu-
ment that Murray's actions demonstrated "an extreme devi-

_ation from the standard of care" by administering propofol

without the proper equipment, and also concealing it and
botching efforts to resuscitate the singer.

Murray, a Houston cardiologist, has pleaded not guilty,
and his attorneys have contended he did not give Jackson
anything that should have killed him. Defense lawyers did
not deliver an opening statement at the hearing. Murray
could face up to four years in prison if tried and convicted.

Egypt's

fear new
attack on
holiday
Sasccatea Fess

-EGYPTIAN Christians say’

they fear a repeat attack
against their community on
Coptic Christmas Eve Thurs-
day despite authorities plan-
ning heavy security following a
New Year's suicide bombing
of a church in ‘Alexandria that
killed 21.

‘In-response to the threats
against the Christians by
extremists, Egyptian activists
have called on Muslims to
form human shields in front of
the:churches on Christmas Eve
as: gesture of solidarity with
country's Coptic Christian
minority, which makes up 10
Beret of Egypt's 80 million
people. .

The bombing of the church,
the worst act of sectarian vio-
lence in the country in a
decade, touched off days of
demonstrations and riots by
the Christians blaming the gov-
ernment for encouraging dis-
crimination and prejudice and
not doing enough to protect
them.

Some Christians have even
said they will skip Thursday's
Christmas Eve services for fear
that there will be more attacks.

“"T had a fight with my moth-
er. She kept saying no church-
es this year. I wanted to go but
my.parents are afraid some-
thing might happen again,"
said Karim Monier, a 19-year-
old student living in the mid-
dle-class neighborhood of
Hadayak Helwan in southern

try, with explosives experts on
hand. Armored vehicles will

WASHINGTON
Associated Press



CLAIMING power beneath the
Capitol dome, resurgent Republicans
gained control of the House of Rep-
resentatives on Wednesday as the
112th Congress convened in an era of
economic uncertainty. Dozens of tea
party-backed lawmakers took office
in both houses, eager to cut spending
and reduce government's reach. ~

"The people voted'to end business
as usual, and today we begin carrying
out their instructions," said newly
elected House Speaker John Boehn-
er of Ohio, replacing Democrat Nan-
cy: Pelosi and transformed instantly
into 'the nation's most powerful
Republican in a new era of’ divided
government.

Both the House and the Senate
convened at the constitutionally man-
dated hour of noon for a day of
pageantry and bipartisan flourishes
that contrasted sharply with the
fierceness of the midterm elections
that set the new roll of lawmakers.

In the Senate, where Democrats,

retain control, Majority Leader Har-

‘ry Reid of Nevada selected retired

Republican Sen. Paul Laxalt to
accompany him when he took the
oath for a new term. In the House,
children and grandchildren squirmed
in the laps of their elders, less than
transfixed at thé historic events
unfolding around them.

Republicans hold. a -242- 193 c con-
servatives' majority in the House and
have pledged to challenge President
Barack Obama both with legislation
and with their power to investigate.
The first salvo is expected next week,
a bill to repeal-the sweeping health
care law that Democrats pushed to
passage 10 months ago a have
vowed to defend.

Reid signaled as much, aiid more,
in a speech marking the beginning
of a new two-year Congress. "We
have to do even more to help middle-
class families, to create jobs, to has-
ten our energy independence, to
improve our children's education and
to fix our broken dnmipretion sys-
tem," he said.

Within a few hours of the open-
ing gavel, Democrats unveiled a plan
to limit the ability of Republicans to
filibuster their legislation. No reso-
lution is expected for weeks.

Sixteen blocks away, Obama



HOUSE Speaker John Boehner of Ohio holds up the gavel after receiving it from outgoing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi
of Calif. during the first session of the 112th Congress, on Capitol Hill in Washington, Wednesday, Jan. 5, 2011. (AP)

seemed content to renew old battles
in some areas at the same time he
calls‘for bipartisanship in others. The
White House resubmitted numerous -
appointments left over from 2010 for
Senate confirmation, including four
nominees for federal judgeships
blocked by Republicans last year.
Senate Republicans gained six
seats in last fall's elections, and their
leader, Sen. Mitch McConnell of
Kentucky, said the voters had made .
it clear they "want lawmakers to cut
Washington, tackle the debt, rein in

. government and to help create the

right conditions for private sector
growth."
The day's events unfolded as the

‘ economy, which was the dominant

issue in the elections, showed signs of
increased strength as it emerges from
the worst recession in eight decades.
Even so, unemployment remains at
nearly 10 percent, a historically high--
level, and a problem that politicians

seball Team analyses of the Athletics

of both parties have vowed to tackle.

Additionally, instead of merely
opposing Obama's every proposal,
as they did in 2009 and 2010, House
Republicans in particular must com-
promise with him if they are to show
results in their drive to cut spend-
ing. Yet their eagerness to vote
quickly on repealing the health care

bill is in line with a no-compromise -

- position articulated by the tea party

forces that helped propel many GOP
challengers to victory.

For his part, Obama will be forced
to compromise with Republicans,
much as he did in last month's lame
duck session of Congress when com-
promise legislation was approved to
avert an increase in income taxes,
enact a cut in Social Security taxes
and extend jobless benefits for the
long-term unemployed.

"The big changes today are of

course happening across the-dome," -
’ McConnell said in his remarks, '

‘and

I'd like to welcome the many new
Republican members of Congress
who've come to Washington to
change the way things are done
around here." With that, he walked
across the Capitol to witness Boehn-
er's moment of triumph.

Given to displays of emotion,

Boehner paused to dab at his eyes ,

with a handkerchief as he made his’
way to the speaker's rostrum. His
was an unlikely ascension, capping
two decades in Congress in which
the 61-year-old Ohioan held and then
lost a leadership position when
Republicans were last in a majority.
He re-emerged as leader of a dispir-
ited minority in 2006.

Unlike Newt Gingrich, whose style
bordered on frenetic when he led
Republicans to power in 1994,
Boehner has beén careful to strike a
humbler pose as he works to keep
faith with the anti-government voters
who supported the party's candidates.

US citizen gets 15 years in

prison for 1968 hijacking ©

By LARRY NEUMEISTER
Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) — A
judge sentenced a man who
hijacked a plane from New
York to Cuba four decades
ago to 15 years in prison
Tuesday, citing the fear that
- must have spread among pas-
sengers and the flight crew
when he put a knife to the
throat of a flight attendant
and a gun to her back and
then entered the cockpit.

US District Judge Alvin K
Hellerstein announced the
sentence for 67-year-old Luis
Armando Pena Soltren, who
returned to the United States
from Cuba in October 2009
to face charges of conspiracy
to commit air piracy, inter-
fering with a flight crew and
kidnapping. He pleaded guilty
in March.

"This is a very serious
offense. Sometimes it's
important to have a strict sen-
tence," Hellerstein said as he
rejected pleas for leniency
from a defense lawyer who
insisted Pena Soltren only
joined the hijacking to get to
visit his father in a Cuban
hospital and then lived an
honorable life afterwards.

Soltren listening to proceedings at his hearing on hijacking charges at US Federal Court in New York.

"Hijacking is a frightening

crime," the judge said. "I tried
to imagine how I would feel if
someone, put a knife to my
throat and a gun to my back
and I wonder how many
nightmares would follow."
Pan American Flight 281,
which had 103 passengers and
crew, was traveling from New

York's Kennedy Airport to
Puerto Rico on Nov. 24, 1968
when Pena Soltren rose from
his seat and attacked the
flight attendant before enter-
ing the cockpit. No one was
hurt.

Speaking through a Spanish
translater, Pena Soltren apol-
ogized for the hijacking and

said he wished for forgiveness
from the flight attendant "and
all those people who felt

, threatened by my desperate

attack."

"I'd like to express my
remorse," he said. As he fin-
ished a statement that lasted
several minutes, he began to
cry and slumped into his seat.

On a bench where his wife
and daughter watched the
proceedings, his daughter
dabbed tears from her eyes.

The hijacking was carried
out when Pena Soltren and
at least two co-defendants
brought pistols and large
knives aboard in a baby's dia-
per bag. The pilots were

forced to divert Puerto-Rico ,

bound Pan American Flight
281 from Kennedy Airport to
Havana.

His lawyer, James Neuman,
said Pena Soltren had wanted
to come back since at least
1979 because he was remorse-
ful.

Two of the men were

_ arrested in the mid-1970s and

pleaded guilty to their roles
in the skyjacking. One co-
defendant ended up serving
7 years in prison while the
other served 4 years.

Another man, who was not
on the flight but was
described as a leader of the
Puerto Rican Movement for
Liberation, was indicted in
the hijacking. He was found
not guilty on all charges.

Neuman argued that Pena
Soltren should serve less time
than the other two because
he had a lesser role.

New unrest breaks out in Tunisia

By BOUAZZA BEN
BOUAZZA
‘Associated Press _:

TUNIS, Tunisia (AP) —
Police and high school stu-
dents have clashed for two
days in a small city of Tunisia,
with protesters setting fire to
the local headquarters of
President Zine El Abidine
Ben Ali's ruling party, a union
representative said Tuesday.

The North African nation
has been gripped by more
than two weeks of protests
over unemployment that were
sparked when a young man
set himself on fire, in despair
after police confiscated the
fruits and vegetables he sold
without a permit. The unrest
has led to three deaths.

The latest protests broke
out in Thala, 250 kilometers
(150 miles) southwest of the
capital.

As classes resumed after -

winter vacation Monday, hun-
dreds of high school students
and other protesters clashed
with police, who used tear
gas, said a union official who
was present. The man spoke



on condition of anonymity,
fearing problems in a coun-
try where the media is heavi-
ly controlled by the state.
Amid the clashes, demon-

strators set fire to tires and to.

the local ruling party head-
quarters on Monday, the offi-
cial said. The unrest contin-
ued on Tuesday. Several peo-
ple were arrested, and others
were hospitalized with
injuries, the union official
said. The protests shuttered
local schools.

France's LCI television
broadcast video of Thala that
showed packs of shouting
young men roaming the
streets and clouds of smoke
in the air.

Such overt clashes are rare
in Tunisia, a popular tourist
destination on the Mediter-
ranean where the government
brooks little dissent and is
routinely criticized for its
human rights record. Tunisia's
unemployment rate is around
14 percent, a figure believed
much higher in rural areas.

The protests. started on

Bouazizi hada university

and sold produce in the street
to earn money for his family
—a story that resonated with
many. Bouazizi is still hospi-
talized.

In one protest, police

The opposition says the
government's response has
been inadequate and that the
protests are fueled not only
by unemployment but by a
lack of personal freedoms.

Gunmen kill

3 in Mexico,
including 13-
year-old hoy

By MARK WALSH
Associated Press

MONTERREY, Mexico

(AP) — Gunmen opened fire

on people gathered at a street
corner in the northern city of
Monterrey, killing two adults
and a 13-year-old boy, author-
ities said Tuesday.

The boy's twin brother and
two men were wounded in the
attack Monday night, the
Nuevo Leon state attorney
general's office said.

Authorities had no imme-

iate suspects. While the
motive was unclear, Mexican
drug cartels have recruiting
younger and younger mem-
bers.

The government has
increasingly detained youths
under 18 for drug-related
crimes. Last month, authori-
ties arrested a 14-year-old boy
who they alleged worked as
an assassin for a drug gang in
central Mexico.

Monterrey, Mexico's third-.
largest city, has been besieged
by fighting between.the Gulf,
cartel and the Zetas drug
gang.

In Apodaca, another town.
in Nuevo Leon state, a shoot-
ing broke out Monday night
between marines and sus-
pected cartel gunmen.

One marine and one sus-
pect were injured, though not
seriously, the Mexican navy
said in a statement. Five sus-
pected members of the Zetas
were arrested, including a
minor, it said.

A spokeswoman for the
town government said elec-
tricity and telephone service
went down for three hours
during the shootout, though
the cause was unclear. Navy
officials said they had no
information on that.

Gunmen used vehicles to
block five roads in Apodaca
— acommon cartel tactic to
impede movement of govern- .
ment security forces —
according to the town spokes-
woman, who spoke on condi-
tion of anonymity.

Sudoku is a number-placing puzzle based on a 9x9 grid with
‘several given numbers. The object is to place the numbers
1 to 9 in the empty squares so the each row, each column
and each 3x3 box contains the same.number only once.
The difficulty level of the Conceptis Sudoku increases from
Monday to Sunday



Best described as a number crossword, the task in Kakuro is
to fill all of the empty squares, using numbers 1 to 9, so the
sum of each horizontal block equals the number to its left,
and the sum of each vertical block equals the number on its
top. No number may be used in the same block more than

. once. The difficulty level of the Conceptis Kakuro increases
from Monday to Sunday. :

ogy began

as part of
our need to solve problems.
Digital imaging was devel-
oped in the 1960s and 1970s,
and it is through the art of
building upon previous gen-
erations that we continue to
advance in technology. This
idea is linked to the concept
of a Digital Age or Digital
Revolution, and carries the
ramifications of a shift from
traditional industry to an

economy based on the -

manipulation of informa-
tion, which has allowed

tapid global communica-

tions and networking to

‘shape modern society.

Digital describes elec-
tronic technology that gen-

erates, stores and processes

data in two states: positive
and non-positive.

Thus, data transmitted or
stored with digital technolo-
gy is expressed as a string of
‘0's’ and ‘1's’.

Each of these digits is
referred to as a bit (and a
string of bits that a comput-
er can address individually is
a byte). Bit is a binary digit:
0 or 1, and a byte is made
up of 8 bits.

Digital- recording has
many benefits over analog

recording, as digital files can .

be copied as many times as
you wish with no loss in
quality. They can be burned
to an audio CD or shared
via the Internet.

In its smallest form, digital
art is normally created on.a
computer in digital form,

and can be purely computer- _

generated by fractals and
algorithmic art. In-an
expanded sense, ‘digital art’
is a term applied to contem-
porary skill that uses the

methods of mass production

. or media.

Computers: They are dig-
ital as they consist of dis-
crete units called bits that
are either on or off. Never-
theless, by combining many
bits, computers simulate
(reproduce) analog events,
and this is what computer
science is all about.

By and large, computer
imaging is often called digi-
tal imaging, and can be
stored as bit-mapped
images. These bit-mapped

‘images are translated into

pixels (for display screens)
or ink dots (for printers).
Likewise, optical scanners
and fax machines work by
transforming text or pictures
on paper into bit maps.

Moreover, digital tech- .

nology is primarily used with
a media such as satellite and
fibre optic transmission. For
example, a modem is used
to convert digital informa-
tion in your computer te
analog signals for your
phone line, and converts
analog phone signals to dig-

ital information Tor your

computer.

Photography: Pho-
tographs in newspapers, for
instance, consist of an array
of dots that are either black
or white.

From afar, the viewer



GLOBAL KNOWLEOGE «

BASTIAN



does not see the dots. (the
digital form), but only lines
and shadings that appear to
be continuous and make up
an image.

Once a photograph is dis-

played in digital format, you

can apply a wide variety of
special effects using an
image -enhancing software:
The more bits used to rep-

_resent a dot, extra colours

and shades of grey are
known as the resolution,
which determines how
sharply the image is repre-
sented.:

Interestingly, one of the
biggest pluses for digital

photography is that it is .

inexpensive and fast trans-
formation, as there is no film
processing.

With digital cameras there
is almost no limit to what
can be done with the best
intentions.

But the big question is
when does the pursuit of
aesthetics violate our ethics?

_It is evident that changes
can be made to images that
are undetectable, so much
so that photographs should
no longer be allowed as evi-
dence in the courts of law.

Analog: As we all know,

the opposite of digital is ana-
log ,and broadcast and
phone transmission has con-
ventionally used analog

’ technology.

A typical analog device is
a clock in which the hands

move continuously around —

the face.
In contrast, a digital clock
is capable of representing

only a finite (fixed) number

- of times (every tenth of a

second).

Music: Music itself exists

‘in an analog form as waves

in the air, but these sounds

_ are then translated into a

digital form that can be
encoded on to a disk. For
example, when a compact
disc is played, the CD play-
er reads the digital data,
translates it back into its
original analog form and
sends it to the amplifier and
then the speakers.

Printing: The very first
recording of printing can be
traced back to when books
were. copied by hand and
transferred to parchment.
Then came the woodblock
printing in Europe, where a
page was cut into wood
before being printed out.
Digital printing services are
now part of a network used
to send and receive data
from all parts of the globe...
As technology develops, dig-
ital printing will continue to
see new improvements and
enhancements in the future.

' Digital Television: The
arrival of digital TV marks
the transition from black

‘and white to colour. .

In analog television, the

. parameters of the picture

and sound were represented
by the analog magnitude. of
an electrical signal.

Sound and pictures are
converted into a digital for-
mat and compressed, taking
up less space than the old
system.

This allows more chan-
nels, quality pictures and
sound. With today's digital
technology, we have seen
dinosaurs and aliens: por-
trayed with lifelike realism

License” by requiring companies to register under the new :

Business License Act a month before their 2010 license :-

becomes invalid.

In an e-mail sent to this newspaper, a former Bahamas :
Institute of Chartered Accountants (BICA) president said :
he was concerned that the new Business License Act calls for :
all business owners to register their companies under the Act :

by March 31, 2011.

This is because while the 2010 licenses “expire” on Decem-
ber 31, 2010, they remain “valid” until April 30, 2011, - a :
month later than the compliance date under the new Act, :

said the accountant.

The new Business License Act came into effect on Janu-
ary 1, 2011, and is intended to simplify doing business in The :

Bahamas.

All business people have been asked to bring their Buii- :
nesses into compliance with the requirements of the Act, :
submitting an application form - which is available online - :
and paying the taxes necessary, by March 31, 2011, or else

tisk being placed on a list of non-compliant businesses.

In response to the point raised with Tribune Business, :
Zhivargo Laing said he “couldn’t appreciate the weight of :

it’.

when it becomes due within a year.

“There’s no deprivation in terms of your ability to oper-.
ate and there’s no fee assessed to you because the taxes are :
due at a later point, and it’s only 30 days (difference),” said :

the Minister.

' Mr Laing said businesses “do not lose a month of grace fo

period” but rather gain.

“For a person in business this is a one-time affair in terms :
of registering, and we are doing away under the new Act }
with annual registering for you as part of the process of :
simplification. So a person doesn’t need a grace period any- :

more because you don’t need to renew again,” he said. °

Hutchison Whampoa was

? recently recognised by Our
: Lucaya General Manager,
? Michael Weber, for continuing
: to be “very accommodating”
towards the hotel property, pro-
? viding funds when there are
: shortfalls.

“We give them a lot of cred-

: jt;” said Mr Weber in Decem-
? ber, as he indicated to this
? newspaper that Christmas hotel
? bookings were not as buoyant
: as had been anticipated - at a
i little over 50 per cent for the
? week between Christmas and

new year.
Meanwhile, the head of the

: union-representing workers at

Licence query

: raised by Hutchison Whampoa
‘t during his October meeting
: with them in China.

the Our Lucaya Beach and
Golf Resort has received a
memo from the Prime Minis-
ter outlining a number of
labour-related “concerns”

Nicole Martin, president of

? the Bahamas Hotel, Catering
? and Allied Workers Union
i (BHCAWU), said she received
: a document from the Prime
: Minister’s Office on Tuesday
? that outlined “some concerns
? raised by the (hotel) owners”
? which she said the. union had
? not previously been aware of.

“T’m in the process of looking

i them over. Clearly [the Prime
i Minister] would’ve had more
? information as far as things

going on at property and things
concerning [the owners]. Based
on what he sent to me as of yes-
terday they are things my
administration and the man-
agement team at Our Lucaya
have never even discussed, so I
am actually trying to wrap my
head around what the real
issues are,” said Ms Martin,
who declined to go into detail
on the issues raised.

China

During last year’s trip to Chi-
na, Prime Minister Hubert
Ingraham met with representa-
tives of Hutchison Whampoa.

In an interview with The Tri-

bune while in China, Mr Ingra- .

ham said he and the executives
“discussed Our Lucaya exten-
sively”, and added occupancy
levels at the hotel appeared bet-
ter in recent times.

However, he added that “‘it is
our hope that (the owners) will
have a harmonious relationship
with the union because there
are concerns about some of the
issues that are coming up”. Mr
Ingraham said he intended to
“have some discussions with the
union about the hotel proper-
ty”.

Ms Martin told Tribune Busi- —

ness that prior to the Prime
Minister’s memo, the only mat-

OUR LUCAYA SALE REPORTS DENIED

ter her organisation had been
having discussions with the
management of Our Lucaya
about concerned “unpaid
increases” and non-payment of
contributions by the hotel to

* the worker’s pension fund:

The BHCAWU president
said management have so far
said they “simply cannot pay”
the increases of 2.5 per cent of a
worker’s base salary that were
due on April 30, 2009, 3 per
cent on November 1, 2009, and
a further 3 per cent on April
30, 2010.

The same is the case regard-
ing a contribution of 6 per cent

‘ of the base pay of each bar-

gaining unit worker into the
pension fund, which was due
on November 1, 2009.

“We have been talking about
this ever since my administra-

tion’s first election last year but
there’s been no progress,” said
Ms Martin.

In response to the position
that, given the current eco-
nomic climate in Grand
Bahama, it might be more
appropriate to hold off on push-
ing the issue of salary increases,
Ms Martin said she recognises
“there is that sentiment”, but
the union did not appreciate
the “lack of negotiation” over
the matter.

“We believe they should be
able to pay something, to come
to some compromise over what
they pay those people,” said the
union president.

Ms Martin went on to con-
firm that the Minister of
Labour will conduct a poll at
the hotel later this month at the
request of some members of
the Our Lucaya bargaining unit
wto determine whether the
workers will continue to be rep-
resented by the BHCAWU or
another union

FINANCIAL SECTOR ‘HINDERED’ BY TELECOMS WOES

_ FROM page 1B

focus be on the creation of
competition via the parallel

. industry liberalisation, Reece

Chipman told Tribune Business
that:obtaining the right out-

‘come in both cases was “very

important” to the financial sec-
tor.

“The financial services indus-
try, toa great degree, has been

», hindered by the lack of com-
* petitive telecommunications,”

the BICA president said. “We
are still having to train abroad,
have. information systems
checked from head office
instead of remote systems.
“As for the cost factor, we’re
hoping there’s some cost reduc-
tion. Most of our financial busi-
ness is offshore, and even in the
commercial banking sector, we
have concerns over efficient,

adequate telecommunications

and the cost of telecommuni-
cations. The cost is such a big
factor, and we’re hoping with
the reduced cost and the pri-
vatisation, that it will have an

_impact on our competitive-

ness.”

Mr Chipman said cheaper,
more efficient telecommunica-
tions. could also play a role in
helping the Bahamas to expand

' its knowledge base and market

share in financial services.
“We have the qualifications,
we have quite an educated

financial services sector. But at
this point, we’re not as com-
petitive as Cayman or Barba-
dos,” Mr Chipr:.an said.

“The knowledge is here, but
somehow we’re not enhancing
or sharing that knowledge.
With telecommunications lib-
eralisation, we can meet those
opportunities that could be
available to enhance knowledge
and share it.”

Mr Chipman urged that com-
petition “remains the focus” in
telecommunications industry
liberalisation in the Bahamas,
since it was this that would
“maximise” the benefits from
BTC’s privatisation and allow-
ing competitors in.

Arguing that the Utilities
Regulation & Competition
Authority (URCA) should see
its role as “a catalyst for all
aspects of competition”, includ-
ing monitoring and managing
the process to ensure there was
transparency, discipline and fair
play in the market, Mr Chip-
man also backed the regulator’s
stance on accounting separa-
tion.

.URCA is already requiring
that BTC and Cable Bahamas,
the two operators designated
with Significant Market Power
(SMP), implement account sep-
aration, dividing their busi-
nesses into their different busi-
ness segments so that. all busi-
ness revenue and profit streams
are transparent.

This is designed to prevent

SMP operators, in both the
wholesale and retail markets,
from cross-subsidising unprof-
itable business ‘segments
through profitable ones, or
from introducing costs in areas
such as interconnection that are
prohibitively high and stifle the
competition at birth.

And the BICA president also.
backed the Government’s deci-

sion to sell a 51 percent stake _

in BTC, as opposed to 49 per
cent. “I:am definitely on the 51
per cent side, and more so for
me to take the Government out
of the business of telecommu-
nications,” Mr Chipman said.
“If you’re going to privatise,
I believe in full privatisation. I
believe more opportunities
come from a socio-entrepre-
neurial or more merit-based
organisation than a socio-polit-
ical organisation. Persons have
more opportunity, because
decisions are not based on the

- political divide but business

functions. . /

“The-51 per cent takes the
socio-political bureaucracy out
of the decision-making, and
that I can appreciate.” '

The BICA president said
telecommunications liberalisa-
tion would also create oppor-
tunities for Bahamian accoun-

- tants in terms of providing busi-

ness advisory and audit services
to the numerous small busi-
nesses likely to be created by
the new market opportunities,
or spin-offs from these.

Delayed opening costs Robin Hood ‘millions of dollars’

FROM page 1B

The expansive Bahamas-based retailer had
hoped to open in time to catch the Christmas
and New Year shopping season, a period that
often accounts for up to 40-50 per cent of some
stores’ annual sales revenues, but Tribune
Business sources suggested the. opening was
delayed by the need to comply with require-
ments stipulated by the Ministry of Works and
other government agencies. —

Sandy Schaefer, Robin Hood’s principal aie
president, declined to comment on the pre-
cise reasons for the delayed opening of the

retailer’s second store, but said: “Pm very

hopeful we’ll get it open very soon.’

Focusing on the positive, he added of the
delay: “It’s actually, going to make us stronger,
and give us more time to get the place ready.

It’s going to be the nicest shopping experi. .

ence on the eastern side of the island.”

Yet missing out on the Christmas shopping
season has prevented Robin Hood from get-
ting a significant immediate return on its Prince
Charles investment, and building up a sub-
stantial cash pile to help it through the post-
Christmas months that are traditionally a slow
time for retail sales.

When asked about how much the delayed
opening had cost Robin Hood, Mr Schaefer
acknowledged that the sum involved was “sub-

_ Stantial”, and “certainly in the seven figures”,

meaning millions of dollars.

He added that Robin Hood was now plan-
ning to have a “grand opening” for its Prince
Charles Drive store on January 21, accompa-
nied by various “festivities and specials”, after
which it would focus on the planned 44,000
square foot, two-storey retail complex, which

will be situated in front of the store.

“I hope to have that open in August, and
that it will be up and ready in six months’
time,” Mr Schaefer said. Construction was set

to start in February 2011, he added, with ten-

ants set to include a full-service Scotiabank
branch and a Sbarro’s restaurant.





Robin Hood was talking to another 15 :
potential tenants, Mr Schaefer said, although

no leases had been signed yet as the retailer :
was focused in the short-term on opening the :

new store and the Christmas season at its exist- :

ing Tonique Williams-Darling Highway store. }

He acknowledged that the Christmas and :
New Year period had been “disappointing”

for Robin Hood’s existing outlet, with con- :

sumers eschewing purchases of ‘big ticket’ :
items, such as appliances and electronics, in } define what we think is - ,,
favor of less costly items, while others hung on : good and bad, while aes-

: thetics deal with the nature
? of beauty, art, taste and

i things that are pleasing i in

? appearance. ti

Describing Bahamian consumers as “infi- :

instead of five large toys last year.’

Mr Schaefer said that on customer counts,

within 5 per cent. It’s just the spending habits.
This is something that is reflected in the buy

According to Mr. Bain, “Asset recovery is the end-game. After the fraud has been discovered,
after the Ponzi scheme has been unraveled, after the money launderer has been identified, the
asset recoyery specialist goes to work to recover the assets that no one else had legal rights to in
the first place. Asset recovery is about getting those assets back, regardless | in which country or
what institutions the illegal assets are being held. We were taught RraieBes that can lead to the

Jump in hiring sends bonds [Qi

lower and stocks higher

MATTHEW CRAFT,
AP Business Writer
NEW YORK

_ A surprising jump in hiring sent bond

prices lower and lifted the dollar. Stocks. .

edged higher.

A survey from payroll processor ADP
found that private companies added
297,000 jobs last month, far above the
100,000 economists expected. The report is
the first chance for investors to see how
strong the job market was in December.

The next look comes Friday morning
when the Labor Department releases its
monthly report on total U.S. payrolls and
the unemployment rate. Economists expect
the rate will dip to 9.7 poner from 9.8
percent.

The unexpectedly high jobs survey from
ADP suggests that the Labor Department
report will also be strong. But economists
cautioned against reading too much into
the ADP figures, which also take into
account weekly figures on claims for unem-
ployment insurance, said Thomas Simons,
market economist at Jefferies & Co.

"When the ADP number comes in
strong, it doesn't mean all the other labor
reports will come in strong,".Simons said.
"But it does show that the labor market is
improving. You have to take all these num-
bers together and come up with a mosaic
view.’

Treasurys prices slid, pushing their yields
higher. The price of the 10-year note fell 97
scents per $100 invested. Its yield rose to
3.45 percent from 3.33 percent late Tues-
day. The yield helps set interest rates on

_many kinds of loans including mortgages.

signs that the. economy is strengthening.

ESPN analysts give Bail

and Carey high praise

By RENALDO DORSETT

) ntering their
junior season
and preparing
for the recruit-
ing process, a

pair of Bahamian hoop stars
look to make.a successful
transition to another institu-
tion.

Wannah Bail and Michael
Carey —.blue chip prospects
on the high school basketball
scene in Houston, Texas, for
the past three years — have
taken their game to another
Texas high school for an all
important season.

The duo attended Trent
Internationale School last’sea-
son but had to transfer to Fort
Bend Austin (Texas) at the
start of this year. They were
ruled ineligible to compete in
the Houston area_and settled
on Lamar Consolidated in
Rosenberg, Texas.

Bail, considered one of the
top players at the forward
position in the class of 2012,
has been sought after by a vir-
tual who's who list of NCAA
basketball.

He currently holds offers
from Houston, Indiana,
Arkansas, Louisville, Mar-
quette, Texas, Baylor, San
Francisco, Arizona State and
South Florida, with interest

from Kansas, Oklahoma,
Maryland, Arizona, Miami
‘(FI.), USC, Nebraska and
Boston College.

‘Youth vs. Experience’
treat for tennis fans

AS anticipation builds for The Bahamas International Ten-
nis Club's Doubles Week, local tennis fans will be treated toa
preview of what is to come ina battle of "Youth versus Expe-
rience. '

Kit Spencer, president of The Bahamas International Tennis
Club (IC), who are putting on the event for The SG Private

Banking Trophy, said the British team wanted to get some

extra practice in before the tournament.
“So I thought it would be excellent practice for our r top

juniors to compete against them. It should be a fascinating |

encounter to see the battle between 'Youth and Experience’
when the teams meet,” he said.
The British team will get some early reps in for the tourna-

ment when they face a field of Bahamian junior players at the -

BLTA National Tennis Center at the Queen Elizabeth Sports
Center on January 9.

The series, free of charge'to spectators, is slated to begin at
2pm and will field a British team with several of its players in
the ITF’s world's top 100 in their age category.

In the oldest age category of 65+, for the British team, is Mark
Cox. In the prime of his career, Mark reached a world ranking
of 14 and was the top British player of his era.

Cox is currently ranked in the ITF’s world top 10 in his age
category. So it will be a great experiefice and tough competition
for our Bahamian juniors. ;

Nadal, Federer advance t

DOHA, Qatar (AP) — Top-ranked
Rafael Nadal overcame a second-set
collapse to beat Lukas Lacko of Slo-
vakia 7-6 (3), 0-6, 6-3 Wednesday and

_-join Roger Federer in the quarterfi-
nals of the Qatar Open.

Earlier, Federer beat fellow Swiss
Marco Chiudinelli 7-6 (5), 7-5. (see full
story at bottom of page)

Nadal, who is also playing doubles
with Marc Lopez, had a fever earlier
this week and looked uncharacteristi-
cally slow and sluggish on court. In
the second set, he won just five of 18
points on his serve — and 11 of 37
overall.

"It was a very diftioutt match,"
Nadal said. "I wasn't 100 percent yes- _
terday and it was the same today. I |

said that during the press conference .

pesterian: I was more tired after I
played the doubles matches here. But
k will not stop. I will play doubles."

It was only the 10th time in 575
career matches that Nadal lost a set
6-0, and the first since the decisive set
of a final against Andy Murray at Rot-
terdam, Netherlands, in February 2009,

\ when the Spaniard was bothered by a
knee injury.

Nadal picked up his game in the
decisive set, breaking twice for a 3-0

iead after several unforced errors by BIG RETURN: Rafael Nadal returns the ball to Tomas pce on the second ay of the Mubadala World Championships i in Abu Dhabi,

Could road teams sweep

By BARRY WILNER
AP Pro Football Writer

IT’S hardly a stretch to con-
jure up four road victories in
the wild-card round of the
playoffs. The Saints are hefty
favorites at Seattle, which is
the first division winner with a
losing record in, well, forever.

Green Bay already has won
at Philadelphia, in the season
opener. Baltimore (12-4) also
is a road favourite at Kansas
City (10-6). And the New
York Jets (11-5) have a better
record than Indianapolis (10-
6).

Picking a sweep by the low-
er-seeded teams isn't as gutsy
as it might be in previous

years. Still, we don't quite -

have the guts to do that.

New Orleans (minus 10)

at Seattle, Saturday

The only mismatch of
opening weekend, and a rea-
son there will be strong off-

season talk about revamping .

the playoffs so an 11-5 team
doesn't have to travel more
than halfway across the coun-
try to face a 7-9 club.

New Orleans romped past
Seattle 34-19 in November
and the Saints have improved
since then. The Seahawks
have not.

Sure, Pete Carroll's crew
should get a spark from the
win-or-go-home performance
last Sunday against St. Louis
that gave it the NFC West
crown. But the Seahawks not
only have a questionable
quarterbacking situation
because of Matt Hasselbeck's
hip, they don't match up: in

Saints' formidable passing
game, particularly in the sec-
ondary.

It's a rematch of last Janu-

New York has more offen-
sive weapons, yet its running
game is unpredictable. The
dominant defense from 2009
has disappeared minus a rele-
vant pass rush. The Jets have
to blitz to get to quarterbacks,
a dangerous way to live.

The Colts needed to win
their final four games to take
the AFC South, a year after

starting 14-0. Peyton Manning
has had a strong season that
was sidetracked by a three-
game stretch in which he
threw 11 interceptions. Indi-
anapolis has been plagued by
injuries, too, especially at
wide receiver and running
back, and in the secondary.

Then again, Manning even-
tually made his supporting
cast better. And trusting the
blitz to fool or discomfort him
is not wise.

COLTS, 27-17

Baltimore (minus 3)

at Kansas City, Sunday

If the NFL ever has had a
stronger wild-card team than
the Ravens, it would have to
be the 2007 Giants, 2005
Steelers or 2000 Ravens — all
Super Bowl winners.

Yes, Baltimore is capable
of going all-the way. if - and
this is a rare observation when
it comes to the Ravens ~ the
defense holds up.

Too many times this sea-
son, such as against Atlanta,
Pittsburgh, New England and
Buffalo, the D has not been
dynamic enough.

The Ravens' offense is bal-
anced, although the most
impressive back quarterback
and running back in this
matchup are Kansas City's
Matt Cassel and Jamaal
Charles.

Still, the experience factor,
the versatility and the recent
history of success in road

' playoff games all favor the

Ravens.

Elway
rejoins
Broncos as

football
czar

By ARNIE STAPLETON
AP Pro Football Writer

ENGLEWOOD, Colo.

(AP) — Hall of Famer John ~

Elway has been summoned
by the Denver Broncos for
one more comeback, this
time as the team's chief
football executive.

The beloved quarterback
who led the Broncos to five
Super Bowls and back-to-
back championships before
retiring in 1999 returned to
the team's Dove Vailey
headquarters Wednesday to
begin restoring the fran-
chise's tarnished image and
bring back its winning ways.

Team owner Pat Bowlen,
said he expects Elway to
lead the Broncos to more
Super Bowls and joked this
time, Elway can tell-him:
"This one's for Pat!"

Elway said he was thrilled -

to be part of the Broncos
again, declaring: "My great-
est asset is my competitive-
ness ... I will give it every-
thing I can to return this
team back to the way it
was." é ee

Three coaching candidates
are in line for interviews:
Perry Fewell, Eric
Studesville and Mike Mula-
rkey, and Elway said he
would call Jim Harbaugh as
soon as he got upstairs to his
office to try to schedule an
interview with Stanford's

- coach, too.

Elway will interview
Mularkey, the Falcons'
offensive coordinator, in
Atlanta on Friday night
before returning to Denver
for interviews Sunday with

Giants' defensive coordina-
tor, and Studesville} who
‘went 1-3 as Denver's interim
head coach following Josh

tive vice president of foot-
ball operations in a reshaped
front office, and chief oper-
ating officer Joe Ellis’.
becomes team president.
Brian Xanders will go from
the general manager in
name only to one who's
empowered in the new orga-
nizational chart.

Jets know
pressuring
Peyton way

to-beat Colts

FLORHAM PARK, N.J.
(AP) — The New York Jets
know they need to doa lot of
things right if they're going to
beat the Indianapolis Colts in
the playoffs. ”

° Their most important task
might also be the most diffi-
cult: They need to put pres-
sure on quarterback Peyton
Manning. :

The Jets (11-5) did a good
job of that early in the AFC
championship game last year,
but Manning adjusted and
carved up New York's
defense in the second half of a

30-17 victory. Manning has -

been protected well by his
offensive line this season, get-
ting sacked just 16 times.

Defensive end Mike DeVi-
to says the Jets need to make
Manning “know you're
there," whether it's taking
him to the turf or just pres-
suring him into faster deci-
sions.

The Jets and Colts (10-6)
play Saturday: night at Indi-
anapolis.

LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — Jay Cut:

ler couldn't bear to watch the playoffs in —

the past because it was a little too painful
for him. Now, he's paying attention. -
He is in after missing out his first four

‘seasons, and the Chicago Bears are back

after a four-year absence — with the
NFC North championship and a first-
round bye, too. They'll host defending
champion New Orleans, Philadelphia or
Seattle on Jan. 16.

"It's hard, especially to get a bye in
the playoffs," Cutler said. "Some guys
make the playoffs every year, some guys
never make the playoffs. I have a good
understanding of how hard it really is to
get in the playoffs. I've been close a few
times, but it's been a fun ride so far with
this team."

He's finally showing the form many
expected when he was a high draft pick
by Mike Shanahan and the Denver Bron-
cos in 2006. He's also performing the
way many in Chicago envisioned when

the Bears made a blockbuster trade to

get him before last season.

Sure, Cutler's 52 sacks were by far the
most in the league and he seemed more
likely to go on injured reserve than lead
the team to. the playoffs in the early
going. A nine-sack first-half against the
New York Giants left him with a con-
cussion that sidelined him for a game in
early October, and the Bears hit their

Rodgers’ résumé missing playott wins for Pack

By CHRIS JENKINS
AP Sports Writer

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP)
— Aaron Rodgers has the
skills, statistics and swagger
to be considered one of the
NFL's elite quarterbacks. The

cess in the playoffs.

Rodgers will try to change
that at Philadelphia on Sun-
day, where the Green Bay
Packers. quarterback will be
going for his ‘first career play-
off win in his third season as a
starter.

Rodgers is well aware that
his career will ultimately be
measured by his success in the
postseason, but knows he
can't do it on his own.

"I think it's important,"
Rodgers said. "I think the
greatest quarterbacks are
remembered for winning big
games, but it's not all about ©
the quarterback. Great teams
win games, and then the quar-
terbacks on those great teams
are often.remembered as
being great quarterbacks. We
want to win. Every. time we
take the field we want to win.
It's important to win. That's
why we play the game. And
eventually, if you want to be

off week with three losses in four games.

Then they turned it around.
They settled on a starting lineup on
the offensive line, cut back on the deep

. drops and went more to the running

game, taking the load off their quarter-
back. That led to seven wins in eight
games before they closed the regular sea-
son with a 10-3 loss at Green Bay.
Cutler did his part, cutting down on
the interceptions. He went from 26 a
year ago to 16 this season while throwing

. for 23 touchdowns. Four times in the last
six games his rating was 104.2 or higher, ,

and it all added up to this. Cutler is in the

’ playoffs. after leading a team to a winning

record for the first time since high schol.
Sharp

"He's as sharp an individual as I've
ever been around," offensive coordinator
Mike Martz said. "It's a dangerous thing
for me because sometimes I'll put too
much on him. ... He's very, very sharp."

So Martz sees no need for a pep talk,
no need to brief Cutler on the playoff
atmosphere.

"I've always felt that was unnecessary, "
Martz said. "Kurt (Warner) went through
that obviously; it was his first time. They
know. (Cutler's) been around. If ‘he were
a rookie or something like that ... you

‘know. He's been in some big games this

year, kind of playoff atmosphere. We
just talk about managing the game like
we do every week with him."



SWAGGER: Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers scrambles
during a game against the Vikings. He's the league's third leading pass- .
er with 3,693 yards and 27 TDs with 10 interceptions. In his team's
biggest game of the’season, he passed for a career-high 404 yards,
‘threw four TD passes in a 45-17 win over the Giants.

Simply getting to the piayotisis a big
step for a quarterback who entered the
league with big expectations. With his
rocket arm and uncanny athleticism,
many thought he could take his place
alongside John Elway in Denver.

Just as many predicted his penchant
for mistakes and questionable mechanics
would prevent him from achieving great-
ness. Analysts Steve Young and Trent

_ Dilfer have questioned his footwork, say-

ing it's holding him back, but Cutler

probably never will fit the prototype.
"Everyone just perceives Jay as some

cavalier quarterback," former Bears QB

_ Jim Miller said. "And he's not. If you

look at statistics, Drew Brees has more

interceptions (22) than Jay Cutler. Last |

year's offense was a totally different
offense under Ron Turner than what Jay
is in this year. Jay has had to overcome
quite a bit to be where he's at right now.
He has worked extremely ‘hard, and I
hope he gets his just due."
As for Cutler's mechanics?
"How do you coach a player who part
of his fallacies make him a great play-
er?" Miller said. "If he sees Jay throwing

off his back foot and he throws a 30-yard -

touchdown, what's Mike Martz going to
say: ‘Don't do that?’ I think you want to

‘incorporate ‘the best*of both worlds:
Weigh the risks, rewards, .allow him to be

the athlete that he is and the talented
player that he is, but at the same time try
to reign him in, structure it mechanical-

ly."

the quarterback," McCarthy
said. "(With) Aaron staying
true to his standard of play,
his brand of football, every-
thing else will take care of
itself."

The Packers missed the
playoffs in 2008, Rodgers' first
season as a Starter. They

- made it in.as a wild card last
season and Rodgers had'a
monster game at Arizona,
throwing for 423 yards and
four touchdowns.

But the Packers lost a
heartbreaker when Rodgers
fumbled in overtime and Kar-
los Dansby returned it for a
touchdown.

Rodgers also threw an ear-
ly interception in that game,

the result of miscommunica-
_ tion with his receivers and had
"absolutely nothing" to do
with nervous play on his part.

Rodgers considers his abil-
ity to stay levelheaded under
any circumstances one of his
strongest assets.

"Tl would like to think so,"
Rodgers said. “This is, to
everyone else outside the
building, it's not another
game. But to me, I don't
make it bigger than it is.
That's how I think I'm able

A Pick 6

but he insists that play was -



remembered as a great player,
you've got to win in the play-
offs."

While Packers égach Mike
McCarthy said earlier this
week that Rodgers and the
offense have been "a little bit
up and down at times" this
season, he doesn't want
Rodgers to change anything
about the way he plays going
into the playoffs.

"Aaron Rodgers needs to
be himself," McCarthy said.
"He's established a brand of
football at the quarterback
position that's pretty damn
good, and I'm glad he's our
quarterback."

Rodgers threw for 3,922
yards this season with 28
touchdowns and 11 intercep-
tions despite missing a game
and a half because of a con-

cussion. In his first thrée sea-
sons as a starter, he has
thrown for 12,394 yards with
86 touchdowns, 31 intercep-
tions and a 64.6 completion
percentage.

Rodgers said he has
improved every year, but
acknowledged he struggled
with consistency this season.
That was true of the Packers'
injury-depleted offense as a
whole, a team that could score

‘45 points one week and 10 the

next.

"I guess I was kind of hop-
ing for a slightly bigger jump,"
Rodgers said of his play this
season. "Obviously I'm very
critical of myself in the off-
season and during the season
as well. With the way I pre-

pared and the way I took care _

of my body in the offseason, I
guess I was looking for just a
slightly bigger jump. But my
decision-making was better,
opportunities to do more
things at the line of scrim-
mage increased because of my
preparation. but ... just
decrease the gaps between
inconsistent plays."

McCarthy calls Rodgers'
numbers in the first three
years of his career "phenom-
enal" — and if he plays up to
the standard he has set for
himself, playoff success is sure
to follow.

"Playoff wins are more
team goals, and I understand
the way everybody wants to
put those types of things on

to control the nerves and the
internal pressure I put on
myself."

Rodgers said he is prepar-
ing and practicing the same
way this week that he has all
year, and the idea anybody
will panic has become a run-
ning joke in the Packers' lock-
erroom. ,

"A lot of times, we joke
about it in here, about pan-
ic," Rodgers said. "Like (the
line) from the movie Semi-
Pro: 'Everybody panic!'

"We're in the playoffs now.
That's not going to happen
here. We're still going to
crack jokes at practice, we're
still going to be the same peo-

le.

“And personally, I'm still
going to prepare the same
way and expect to play well."





of amusing
quotes
from. the
NEL season

By RICHARD .
ROSENBLATT.

AP Sports Writer

A FEW years ago, Hall of
Fame wide receiver Jerry
Rice came up with this classic
quote: "I feel like I'm the
best, but you're not going to
get me to say that."

Say what?

With the NFL postseason
upon us, we've come up with
a Pick Six-of players’ quotes
from the regular season that
surely had to make some
people smile — just a little,
anyway:

Before we begin,' though,
an opening act of coaching
humor, if you consider the
likes of Rex Ryan,:Mike
Shanahan and Bill Belichick
amusing.

From the Jets' Ryan: "I
never realized how similar
that I am to Tom Brady. I
mean, the obvious physical
appearance. would be the first
thing. The fact that he's mar-
ried toa supermodel? Hel-
lo? "

As he holds up a copy of
InStyle magazine with his
wife modeling NFL apparel,
he adds: "Yeah. I'm:also
married to a supermodel."

From the Redskins’ Shana-
han on benching Donovan
McNabb late in a game: "The
cardiovascular endurance
that it takes to run a two-
minute, going all. the way
down with no timeouts, call-
ing plays, it's just not easy."

. And from the Patriots’

- always insightful Belichick:

"Well, when we left here last
night we were 14-2 and I
think this morning, we're 0-0.
We don't know who the next.
game is, but we know that
whoever it is will be a team
that wins this emis week-
end ..

On to the players, with no
disrespect meant in ignoring
the words of whiners (Albert
Haynesworth), ranters
(Randy Moss, Derek Ander-
son, the Bengals’ dynamic
duo), the angry (James Har-
rison) and the humbled (Ste-'
vie Johnson).

— Brett Favre, QB,
Vikings, speaking about
then-coach Brad Childress:
"Compassionate like will he
give you a hug or something?

Boy1 sure could use one."
Jay Cutler, QB, Bears,

_diter being picked off four
‘times by Washington's

DeAngelo Hall: "There's no
reason to shy away from-him.
I mean that's hard for me to
say throwing four picks to
the guy, but I still think if we
had to play him tomorrow, -
I'd go after him every time."

— DeAngelo Hall, CB,
Redskins, on his four-inter-
ception day: "It's kind of
mind-blowing. I had my
mom, my aunt, and my two
cousins in the stands. The
first ball went to my mom,
the second ball went to my
aunt and the next thing you
knew everybody had a ball."

— Peyton Manning, QB,
Colts, during a string of 11
interceptions in three games:
"I don't make any excuses.
I'm continuing to throw, I'll
keep throwing. I hope I
throw it to our guys."

— DeSean Jackson, WR,
Eagles, after his 65-yard punt
return on the final play to
beat the Giants: "I always try
to do something out of the
ordinary. I probably would
have dove in from the 12-
yard line if I could. I knew
nobody was going to catch
me."

— Keith Bulluck, LB,
Giants, after failing to make
the playoffs: "It was all self-
inflicted. We were in the dri-
ver's seat. And then we were
in the passenger seat. And
now we're in the back seat."

And finally, some food for
thought:

"People had goooood
meals. If you'd never had
lobster before, you had it
that night." — David Wells,
adviser for Cowboys' WR
Dez Bryant, after the rookie
was hit with a $54,896 din-
ner tab by veteran team-
mates. Enjoy the playoffs.

LONDON (AP) — Arsenal hit
the post twice but could find no
way past’ Manchester City as the

-*remier League title rivals drew 0-
yon Wednesday.

Robin van Persie and Cesc Fab-
egas were both denied by the goal
-ame during a first-half onslaught
gainst a City side lacking adven-

cure.

A powerful long-range strike
from Van Persie was turned over by
Joe Hart on the hour and the City
goalkeeper thwarted the Dutch for-
ward again in stoppage time.

"The way we dominated the
game is very positive," Arsenal
manager Arsene Wenger said. "I
feel we had more chances than you
usually have in this type qf game.
They looked to me like they were
set up not to lose ... they came here
to get a 0-0."

Both sides finished with 10 men
after Pablo Zabaleta was sent off
for an 89th-minute challenge on
Bacary Sagna, who subsequently
attempted to headbutt the City
defender and was dismissed.

Arsenal remains two points adrift
of City in third having played a
game less. The draw leaves second-
place City two points behind neigh-

. bor Manchester United, which also
has two games in hand.

"It was very important tonight
because it's always difficult to come
here and get points," City defender
Kolo Toure said after facing his for-
mer club. "We wanted to get three
points but it was a really difficult
game. Arsenal are really in form
at the moment.

"The draw is really good: The
team played really well and Joe
made some fantastic. saves."

As City manager Roberto Manci- |

ni was forced to fend off claims that

his side is boring, Toure leapt to

the defense of his side. .

"It was difficult to have
chances because Arsenal played
very well, but it's good that we did-
n't lose the game." _.

The prospect of City winning at

Arsenal for the first time since Oct. '

1975 always seemed an unlikely
proposition after Arsenal's storm-
ing start.

Van Persie hit the post after nine
minutes and Hart kept out a side-
footed effort from Theo Walcott,
who was fed by Wilshere.

City did come close when Gareth
Barry's free kick reached Carlos
Tevez at the back post, but Alex

Song was able to divert the mis-hit
shot behind.

From another quick counterat-
tack, though, led by Samir Nasri
and Fabregas, Arsenal threatened

’ again. Fabregas struck the same left
-post that Van Persie hit earlier and

from the rebound, Walcott hit the
other post but was offside.

"They had good chances in the
first 15 to 20 minutes. After that
they had good possession but didn't
have more chances to score,"
Mancini said. "In the second half

Sevilla eliminates Malaga
in the Copa del Rey

By JOSEPH WILSON
Associated Press

BARCELONA, Spain (AP) —
Defending champion Sevilla
advanced to the quarterfinals of
Spain's Copa del Rey by beating
Malaga 3-0 and eliminating its
Andalusian neighbor 8-3 on aggre-
gate on Wednesday.

Koffi Romaric scored his third
goal of the series with a long strike
that grazed Malaga's Nabil Baha
before sailing into the left corner of
the net in the 51st minute, and sec-
ond-half substitute Diego Perotti
sped past his marker and tapped in
Jesus Navas' cross in the 65th.

After Malaga was reduced to 10

men by Weligton's sending off in
the 72nd, Luis Fabiano capped the
win by curling i ina free kick in the
last minute.

Later, Barcelona visits Athletic
Bilbao with the series even after a
0-0 draw, and Deportivo La Coruna
plays second-division Cordoba after
the first leg ended 1-1.

Malaga had the better share of
the scoring chances early on but
could not covert chem into goals in
a game that featured the debut of
four of its winter reinforcements:
Ignacio Camacho, Martin
Demichelis, goalkeeper Sergio
Asenjo, and former Sevilla mid-
fielder Vincenzo Maresca.

On Thursday, Real Madrid trav-

els to Levante with the knockout
virtually certain after a 8-0 thrash-
ing in the first game, and Villarreal
faces Valencia with everything in
play after the 0-0 draw at Mestalla
Stadium. Also, Espanyol tries to
overturn Atletico Madrid's 1-0 lead
at home, Almeria defends its 4-3
advantage at Mallorca, and Getafe
welcomes second-division leader
Betis with Michel Gonzalez's team
ahead 2-1.

to stretch its lead over Panathi-

league.

Olympiakos controlled play from
the start, and Fuster grabbed his
fifth goal of the season in the 31st
minute. He pounced on a loose ball
after a shot by Dennis Rommedahl
was partried by Iraklis keeper Dim-
itris Eleftheropoulos.

Pandelic doubled the lead in the
82nd with a shot from the edge of
the area. .

Qatar to host
this month’s
Asian Cup

By MICHAEL CASEY
AP Sports Writer

DOHA, Qatar (AP) — With the,
2022 World Cup still more than a
decade away, Qatar will get its first
chance to prove it can host a major
football tournament when the Asian
Cup arrives Friday in the tiny desert

‘nation.

The glistening city of Doha is still
buzzing after overcoming rival bids
from the United States, Australia,
Japan and South Korea to claim the
2022 World Cup. Now the hard work
begins.

Qatar faces intense pressure to
avoid any embarrassing, Common-
wealth Games-like mishaps while

‘attempting to showcase a country des-

perate for international recognition as
more than just a wealthy mercenary
that can buy talent and ‘put up sky-
scrapers.

The hot weather — which dogged its
2022 bid from the start — won't be
an issue. The Asian Cup, which runs

-until Jan. 29, was moved from its nor-
mal summer timetable.

The biggest challenge will likely be
logistics. Tens of thousands of foot-
ball fans will stream in for the 16-team
tournament that features Asian heavy-
weights like Japan, South Korea, Aus-
tralia and Saudi Arabia. They are
counting on a transportation network
with ’no metro system and a haphazard
fleet of buses and taxis. The ticketing
system at all six stadiums has not been
tested on this scale since the 2006
Asian Games.

' And then there is the question of
what to do for three weeks outside |
the stadiums. Will fans be charmed by
the souks and desert scenery or grum-
ble over the fact they can't buy a beer
outside the four- or five-star hotels in
this conservative Muslim country?

Asian Football Confederation Pres-
ident Mohamed Bin Hammam said
Wednesday that Qatar's Asian Cup

"will be the best ever in the tourna-
ment's history."

"The AFC Asian Cup i is kicking off
soon and IJ hope we call will be.able to
witness it," the Qatari said. "You will
see the changes in the competition and
how we have improved over the past
eight years.

"It has been a great effort by,every-
one and I'm sure it will be the best
tournament ever and be the model for
future events."

-The tournament is also be a chance
to promote Asian football, which has
seen its fortunes on the rise after the
decision to hold.a- World Cup in the

’ Middle East for the first time.

For the likes of Australia and North
Korea, the tournament offers a chance

. put their World Cup troubles behind

them.
- Others such as Iran, Bahrain and

Saudi Arabia — who weren't in South -~

Africa — see the Asian Cup as their
best chance of grabbing an interna-
tional trophy. Then there are the min-
nows like Syria, Jordan and India,
teams that see the tournament as a
rare opportunity to display their skills
on a prominent stage.

Qatar, which has the second worst
team in the tournament, will be hoping
for a miracle on home soil.

"This cup is very important," said
Syria striker Zyad Chaabo, whose
team is ranked 107th in the world.
"We all like to play in the Asian Cup
because the World Cup is out of reach
for us. Reaching the finals in Asia Cup
after such a long time is very impor-
tant. We hope that we will prove to the
world that we deserve reaching the
finals."

_The favorites this year are the same
as past tournaments. It's a small club
that sincé 1956 has included three-
time champions Iran, Saudi Arabia
and Japan. Australia, making its sec-
ond appearance in the tournament,
has one of the stronger teams, as does
two-time winner South Korea, which
would like to end a 50-year title
drought. ,

"I feel it is better that we did not win
Asian title in the last 50 years," said
South Korea.coach Cho Kwang-rae,
who was appointed in July. "There is
no pressure on us, but if we win this
time it will be very, very valuable for
the country."

But as Australia found out in 2007,
being a favorite with plenty of big-
name players doesn't mean all that
much. It lost on penalties to Japan in
the quarterfinals and the eventual win-
ner was Iraq, which set-off wild cele-
brations in the war-torn country.

"Our ambition is to be the ghampi-
ons again," Iraq captain Younis Mah-
mood said. "Through winning the cup,
we did what America and the govern-
ment couldn't do, which. was to unite
the country."

Though the tournament besa t
offer players with the star quality of
Wayne Rooney and Lionel Messi,

Beltre, Texas agree to $96m,

By STEPHEN HAWKINS
AP Sports Writer



ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — ..- =

The AL champion Texas Rangers
have introduced.Adrian Beltre
after agreeing on a $96 million, six-
year contract with the All-Star
third baseman.

"We all know that the Rangers
have'a really good team. I want to
win," Beltre said Wednesday. "The
team is willing to do whatever it
takes to get to the next step. That's
one of the factors to make my deci-
sion to come hefe easier."

Beltre gets $14 million this year,
$15 million in 2012, $16 million in
2013, $17 million in 2014, $18 mil-
lion in 2015 and $16 million in
2016. The Rangers can void the
final season if Beltre fails to have
either 1,200 plate appearances in
2014-15 combined or 600 in 2015.

Beltre became a free agent after
turning down a $10 million player
option to stay with Boston.

A two-time Gold Glove winner,
Beltre hit .321 with 28 homers, 102
RBIs and 49 doubles in 154 games
during his only season with Red
Sox. He was an All-Star for the
first time in his 13-season career.

Texas appeared it its first World
Series last season, losing to San
Francisco in five games after beat-
ing the New York Yankees in the



NEWLY ACQUIRED Texas Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre at a news conference.

"The organization had a taste of
something last year, finished a few
games shy of our ultimate goal,"
general manager Jon Daniels said.
"Everything that we've been talk-
ing about and looking to do this
offseason has been in the name of
improving the club to a point
where we can win the division and
get back to the World Series and
ultimately win it. This signing is
very much in line with that goal."

The Rangers were spurned in
their attempt this offseason to
keep Cliff Lee, even after offering
the ace left-hander $138 million
over six years. Lee instead
returned to Philadelphia.

Texas earlier this week complet-
ed a $3 million, one-year deal with
the 2006 NL Cy Young Award’
winner, who hasn't pitched since
the 2009 season opener after shoul-
der surgery. Texas also completed
a $3.9 million, one-year contract
with 41-year-old reliever Arthur
Rhodes that includes a $4 million
club option for 2012.

Week

Beltre, who will turn 32 the first
week of the regular season, is a
.275 hitter in 1,835 career games
for the Los Angeles Dodgers
(1998-04), Seattle (2005-09) and
Boston. Los Angeles signed Beltre

six-year deal

league debut with the Dodgers
four years later. After hitting .334
with 48 homers and 121 RBIs in his
final season with the Dodgers in
2004, Beltre went to the Mariners.

Acquisition

The acquisition of Beltre means
yet another position switch for
Rangers career hits leader Michael
Young, the team's longest-tenured
player going into his 11th season.
Beltre said he spoke to Young on
Wednesday about the move.

"I have a huge respect for
Michael," Beltre said. "Him willing
to do that for me, it means a lot."

Young this week publicly
expressed his willingness to switch
again if Texas got Beltre. Young,
who has three years left on his con-
tract, will become a designated hit-
ter while also playing a utility role. .

Young was a second baseman
when he became a starter for
Texas in 2001, then switched to
shortstop after Alex Rodriguez
was traded in 2004. The Rangers
moved Young to third base two
years ago when they decided to
promote rookie shortstop Elvis-
Andrus from Double-A.

Manager Ron Washington envi-
sions Young being the primary DH
who will occasional play each of
those infield positions, and possi-









AL championship series. (AP Photo) in 1994, and he made his major bly first base.

Peter was an avid sportsman. He was born and grew up in Nassa jhe Bahamas and
he became superb in anything to do with the Ocean. He was.his families own Jacques
‘Cousteau! He could swim like a fish and thought nothing at age 9 of taking a spear and
swimming across the harbor from Nassau to Paradise Island and swim back with a
grouper or lobster! He broke records at Queen's College in rugby, high jump, swimming,
etc. He taught scuba GIVING, SOTRENNG, water-skiing, sailing and excelled in all of these
sports. ‘
After his marriage he moved to Florida where Hi had his own fishing boat "The For
Pete's Sake", and worked as an Aircraft engine repair man for over 25 years. Their three
children were born in Florida. Michael who lives in California with his wife Wendy and
their three children, Maxwell, William and Ruby: Michelle who is married to Sandy
Tolosky and lives in West Chazy, New York, and their two children are Juleah and
Peter. Cathy lives in Reno, Nevada with her husband Steven Blane and their two children,
Michael and Carly.





He and his wife "Augie" returned to Nassau in 1979 and there he became Captain of
several different sailing, fishing, & touring boats. "Augie" was fortunate enough to work
at St. Augustine College as a Secretary. Capt. Lightbourn was loved and respected by all
of his crew members, and fellow fishermen and touring Captains. At age 65 in 1994 the
family retired and came back to live in the USA.

They moved to Ellenburgh Depot where their oldest daughter Michelle had retired after
her 21 years in the US Air force. They lived there for eight years but the weather was
quite a shock to Peter and they moved back to Florida. But for his health reasons, that
were just mounting, brought us back to New York, but this time at Michelle and Sandy's ©
home in West Chazy. where they were his caregivers 24/7. in May of 2010, Hospice of
the North Country came to help us and they have been a God's send.

He will be missed by family, nEISHEOE: and co-workers in Nassau, New York, Florida,
Nevada and California.

oy Pati tears YT for

GEOFFREY
CHARLES HIGGS,

| known better as “Smitty”



passed away peacefully on
m Tuesday, 2nd of January, 2011,
at the age of sixty-three. He was
8 diagnosed, almost exactly
eighteen months previously,
with an aggressive brain tumor,
but refused to submit to it easily,
carrying on, instead, with
marvelous Joyeux de vivre.

“Smitty” was born the third son of the Hon. Godfrey W
Higgs and Suzanne Stoll (formerly Higgs). He attended St.
Andrew’s School in Nassau and St. Andrew’s College in
Aurora, Ontario and graduated from the University of
Miami. He always had a profound love for his home - The
Bahamas. He was a master sailor, legendary spearfisherman,
accomplished mischief-maker, and expert raconteur. If he
could not be found entertaining friends and family at home,
he would certainly be found at Rose Island “celebrating life’,
as he would say. Always the gentleman, his spirit was
unbounded, his concern for others and his enormous ability
to lift others up with never a second thought for himself
endured until the end. His humble demeanour was outshined
only by his smile.

Smitty lives on through his devoted wife, Joyce and son,
Spencer; his brother, Peter; his step-sister, Anne Ritter;
sisters-in-law, Judy Higgs, Colette Higgs, and Lynn Vincent;
brother-in-law, Mark Kleene; mother-in-law, Corinne Kleene;
nephews, Andrew, Chris, and Grouper Higgs; cousins,
Godfrey E Lightbourn, Roddy Sinclair, Derek Higgs,
Christopher Lightbourn, Andrea Brownrigg, and Allison
Ferber; and many more relatives, all of whom he loved dearly.
He will be missed by many close and dear friends in Nassau
and the world over.

A funeral service will be held at Christ Church Cathedral,
George Street, Nassau, Bahamas, Thursday, 13 January 2011
at 3:00 p.m. Allare asked to dress in bright and warm colours
as this will be his grandest “Celebration of Life”.

If Persons should wish to make donations in memory of

-“Smitty”, the family would be thankful for your consideration
of either the Cancer Society of the Bahamas, P.O. Box SS-
6539 or the St. Andrew’s College Foundation, 15800 Younge
Street, Aurora, Ontario, Canada, L4G 3Hz.

Bahamas Conference of Seventh-
flay Adventists hosts ‘By His Grace’

By ALESHA CADET the start of the year and another around
the summer.

Speaking on the title of this year's
theme, Pastor: Scavella explained: "We
want to highlight God's grace because
without the grace we would not have any

opportunities, to exist or to live. If there

Tribune Features Reporter

HE Bahamas Conference
of Seventh Days are com-

mitted to spreading the

gospel of Christ as they meet in
convention next week, under
the theme, “By His Grace”.

This year, the convention services will
be held on Wednesday January 12 to
‘Saturday January 15, at thé Grants Town
Seventh Day Adventist Church starting at

- 7pm.

According to their website, the leader-
ship and members of the Bahamas
Conference of Seventh-day Adventists
have formulated a strategic plan to facili-
tate the systematic spreading of the gospel
of Jesus to the Bahamian community. .

Pastor Paul Scavella, president of the
conference explained that the church
holds two conventions each year, one at

to die.

"While God requires, because of our
sins we pay the penalty, Jesus stepped in
and provided the opportunity to us not to
die but to receive forgiveness and it is his
grace that makes that all possible," he
said.

He went on to say, at the convention
they plan to have discussions on the gift of
grace, the benefits of God’s grace and the
opportunity that God’s grace provides for
the church.

"We have five nights of meetings, the
convention speakers will be myself and on
the second night we have the treasurer, C
Melvin Lewis speaking. On the third
night, Pastor Peter Joseph, the executive

ot. dolin's Anglican Church,
Buckley's, Long Istancl
celebrates its Patronal Festival

ANGLICANS in Long Island started
the year of with a bang as parishioners
came together to celebrate the first
Patronal Festival of the calendar year .

After a lull in Patronal Festivals from
St Andrew’s Anglican Church in
Whymms that was held the last Sunday
of November, Anglican members
joined in celebration on the first
Sunday of this New. Year. The pomp
and pageantry of this patronal was
accentuated by bright Christmas deco-
rations.

The Church. was. extravagantly
adorned with celebration flags on the
exterior and the festively decorated
Christmas trees and lights made the
Christmas dream a reality. The liturgi-
cal color for this occasion was white
indicative of the color attributed to St.
John’s.

Fr Chester Burton in his first sermon
at the church said: “Firstly, John’s
gospel sounds different than any of the

5 other /Symoptic: gospels,,in othe |New .
Testament. John-;uses words like ‘signs’





instead of ‘miracles.’He

love that God had for the created sons

His only Son.

“Secondly, John possessed a humble
character; he was the disciple whom
Jesus referred to as the one whom He

bsrmniot

was no grace we would all be condemned:

_ wanted §
humanity to see and tell each other the |

of men. In John’s gospel we find one of ;
the most common and well known bib- ;
lical memory verses, which states “For ¢ ”
God so.loved the world that He gave us |

loved. John in his gospel never elevated |
himself but remained true to the call of |
a true evangelist and is known by bibli- |
cal scholars as the “Theologian”. And |
because of John’s humility, Jesus com- |
mends the Blessed Virgin Mary to his |
care. And finally, John lived to die of |
old age instead of being martyred like |
many of his other apostle brothers. |
John’s writings present the church in |
the new millennium with many truths |
for dealing with and os prob- |

secretary will
be speaking."

Pastor
Scavella added
that the fourth
day of the con-
vention will
consist of morn-
ing sessions
where members
will highlight
the educational .
system of the
church, the
Bahamas
Academy. ~
’ "At the llam
hour, our guest
speaker will be the division president,
‘Israel Leito. The meeting will be also be
highlighted by our choirs, along with a
combined convention choir."-

"Each night we will be presenting to the
constituency, the newly elected depart-
mental directors," he added. .



PASTOR Paul Scavella
wants to encourage
members to highlight
God’s Grace.

Church of God hosts annual Crusade

_ By JEFFARAH GIBSON
Tribune Features Writer

THE Church of God of the Bahamas
and Turks & Caicos is starting off the new
year right, with their annual Crusade that
seeks to relinquish the plans of the enemy
and give honour and glory to the name of
God.

The Church of God has always held the
Crusade at the beginning of the new year.
Bishop John Humes at the Church of God
National Office told Tribune Religion that
the crusade gets the church and it follow-
ers ready for what the new year brings.

“Every first-of the year we start with a
crusade. We try to get our people in the
spirit of revival. It is important that we get
our people ready for what is to come this
year,” he said.

The activities surrounding the event are
set for January 9-14, starting at 7pm at the
Convention Centre in New Providence
and in each district.

On Sunday, January 9, administrator
. Bishop John Humes will open the
Crusade with a service to be held at
Convention Centre on Joe Farrington
Road. On Monday, January 10, the con-

gregation will hear from Rev. Rachel
Mackey on Evangelism Direction. On the
following day Rev Dorothy Bain, nation-
al evangelist will be the speaker for the
night. The special guest speaker will. be
Apostle Raymond Wells of Living Waters.
He will also be the featured speaker on
Thursday night. And on the final night of

‘the crusade the Youth Explosion will be

held. “The Youth explosion will -be a
dynamic segment of the Crusade which
will feature a youth oriented message. It
will be geared more towards them,” he
said.

The National Convention Choir will
sing on Sunday night with the District
Choirs singing on the other nights. Friday
night will feature the National Youth
Choir.

Speakers for the District Crusades
include Rev Rachel Mackey from Abaco,
Rev Dorothy Bain from Andros, Rev
Bertha Saunders from Bimini, Rev Helen
Barnett from Cat Island, Rev Ephraim
Rolle from Exuma, Rev Cephas Dames
from Harbour Island and Bishop Charles
Gardiner from Eleuthera who will also be
in Long Island the following week.

Bishop Humes is encouraging all to

come out to the event as they move to
bring God’s people in harmony.

“The Crusade is a fresh-start for all. We
want to bring people in harmony with
God. We are trying to get them closer to
Christ. We are committed to uniting our-

selves this year. Last year was a rough year _

for the country and the country was so
divided. We saw so much things happen
last year and we are moving towards a bet-
ter year,” he said.

Bishop Humes said he hopes that peo-

_ ple’s lives are changed at the event.

“As it stands, we hope that hundreds of
people get saved and turn their lives
around at the event.

Bishop Humes is also reminding people
of the national financial drive. “ We are
believing God for the completion of our
vision in 2011. It depends on your prayers
and support.”

The Church of God will also be hosting
the ‘Is there anything Too Hard for The
Lord’ Rally on February 28 at the centre
in New Providence and at each district as
well.

Bishop Humes is encouraging people
to: “Keep the fire alive as we move for-
ward together in 2011.”



Bishop John Humes



(ARA) - When a 7.0 magnitude earth-
quake struck 15 miles outside of Port-au-
Prince, Haiti, the damage was considerable,
and almost all the rubble from collapsed
buildings still remains uncleared. Several
months later, approximately 1.5 million peo-
. ple are still living in tent camps or under
tarps without water, electricity, or sewage
facilities. But even though the needs of Haiti
aren't always mentioned in headlines, some
companies, missions and individuals have
recognised the ongoing need and have found
creative ways to help on their own.

Last April, Binghamton, NY-based
Johnson Outdoors Gear LLC, maker of
Eureka! tents, launched Sheltering Haiti
2010, a social media campaign that used the
company's presence on Facebook to get the
word out about its tent drive for Haiti. The
campaign was to benefit the OASIS
Institute and the 650 orphaned Haitian chil-
dren it would house, many of whom were
livirig on the streets. The OASIS Institute
proposed to house, educate and care for
these orphans through a new, holistic Haiti-
based approach to adoption.

An "adopt a child at a distance program,"
the OASIS Institute enables Haitian chil-
dren orphaned during the earthquake to be
raised in their home country via subsidies
by individual sponsors whose monthly
donations fulfill ongoing needs such as
food, shelter and education. While it aimed
to be fully operational within one year, the

Institute, was in need of interim housing via.
a tent village -- the OASIS: Camp -- current-

ly under construction in Tabarre near Port-
au-Prince:

Johnson Outdoors Gear shipped 100
tents to the OASIS Camp and another 100
tents to a mission in Haiti - each tent would
provide temporary shelter for four children.
"We are very excited about expanding our
involvement in relief efforts for Haiti," says
Bill Kelly, general’ manager of Johnson
Outdoors Gear. "We urge all our consumers
and their friends to ‘like’ Eureka! on
Facebook and make a difference."

The effort was made in conjunction with
citizen volunteer Jenny Dubin, who contact-
ed the company after witnessing firsthand
the devastation and need to do more to
help. Dubin served as liaison on the ground
between Johnson Outdoors and the OASIS
Institute.

Last May, in nearby Milford, Pa., the
parishioners of St. Patrick's Church had a
similar experience when Rev Gerald
Mullally turned 60. In lieu of receiving gifts
for himself, he requested that anyone in his
congregation wishing to give a gift instead
‘make a donation to help those in Haiti. His
congregation raised more than $12,000 to
help rebuild the parish of Notre Dame du
Perpetuel Secours in Fragneau-Ville in
Port-au-Prince. Invited to visit that parish,
Rev. Mullally and six of his parishoners
went to Haiti to help i in whatever way they
could.

After witnessing the devastation first-
hand, the parishioners returned home,
formed Hands oft, Mary.
(www.haridsofmaryforhaiti.org) and estab-
lished plans to send future missions that will
include’: medical teams, electricians, and
other professionals to help rebuild the dev-
astated areas. "The church is the only
agency that stands a chance of getting these
people what they need," Rev. Mullally says.
"Governmental help is not forthcoming. The
parish is the source of their housing, food
and medical care. No one else provides it."

Face to face with God

he feast of Epiphany is when we
celebrate the visit of the Gentile
wise men who followed the star
for two years to find the toddler Jesus
and worship him. They opened the
door for us to feel welcomed by God’s
eternal embrace. How are we to
respond?
The way that one of the prayers for
Epiphany in our Prayer Book answers
this question is: ‘O God, by the leading

of a star, you manifested your only Son

to the peoples of the earth: Lead us,
who know you now by faith to your
presence, where we may see your glory
face to face.”
' ‘We make it our life journey to be
equally wise, seeking to worship the
Lord for. the rest of our lives.
Christ was born to introduce the idea

and the reality of our possible adoption ~

as children of God. Every time we think
of who it is that has adopted us our

heart should sing. We have a new home,
a new status, a new identity, a new
authority. We are “front door folks”
now, invited to walk into the throne
room of God.

Psalm 96 is written in a different sea-
son, long before the birth of the
Messiah, but the stage is set for this
drama we now celebrate. We are
instructed to sing a new song about the

“majesty and magnificence of his pres-

ence...the power and the splendour of
his sanctuary” (v. 6), to “proclaim the

good news of his salvation from day to

’ day” (v. 2).

The passage from Isaiah 52:7-10. is
about all of us, not only the exiled
redeemed Jews returning to rebuild
Jerusalem, as it refers to the beautiful
feet of those who bring good néws:
“How beautiful upon the mountain are
the feet of the messenger who
announces peace, who brings good
news, who announces salvation, who
says to Zion, “your God reigns.”

Who needs to hear this news? All
those who will sit for ten hours in the
cold on wooden or metal bleachers to
watch beautiful Junkanoo costumes
depict the glory of God’s creation, but
will not come to sit on padded pews to
worship the Creator of it all.

All those who are still at war with
themselves in destructive lifestyle pat-
terns or relationships, as well as those
who sit in spiritual darkness for any

reason at all, need a star to follow to
find themselves face to face with God.

In God’s presence, we hear whis-
pered in our ears, words which once
used to describe our Lord and Saviour,
Jesus Christ, as written in the prophecy
of Isaiah 42: “Here is my servant, whom
I have chosen, my beloved, with whom
my soul is well pleased. I will put my
Spirit upon him, and he will proclaim
justice to the Gentiles.” We are the
beloved and the chosen when we
respond to God’s call to join the royal
family.

Face to face with God means: first

‘meeting God in daily prayer and then

listening for the same voice in every cir-
cumstance to direct us; seeing the ways
of God unfolding even in the midst of
terrible tragedy as good is brought out
of evil; feeling comforted, loved,

strengthened, empowered, filled with a
reflected glory. What unspeakable joy!



-A New You or New Year?

ARE you going to remain the same or

make the long over due needed
changes? The days of the weeks and the
months of the years of 2011,-are the
same as those of 2010, they. remain
Sunday thru Saturday and January thru
December.

. The New must begin with you: 2
Corinth. 5:17. Therefore if any man be
in Christ, he is a new creature: old
things are passed away; behold, all
things are become new.

My Brothers / Sisters, I’m not talking
about religion, what denomination you
belong to, nor am'I talking about your

- four-walls church building; I’m talking
about your relationship with God
through his Son, Yahshua Messiah
(a.k.a. Jesus the Christ). Could it be

- that you’ve tried just about everything
to make ends meet in 2010, and still
came up short ? Do you know that
there are folks who’ve spent many
years in church, and in religion or their

‘vocation trying to find life’s fulfillment
and yet end up living an empty life ?

Here’s what Yahshua says: “John.
10:10b. I am come that they might have
life, and that they might have it more
abundantly”.

As we go forth in 2011, please don’t
give into Teligious / political hype,
clichés, rhythms and. rhymes. Otherwise
this New Year, would be just like the
rest of the-years whereby, your: haryestic



will be a repeat of last year. It’s time for
you and your family to live and experi-
ence this abundant life that Yahshua
Messiah has made available to those
who would believe and receive. ©

Think about it! How many persons /
leaders ( Religious, Political, Civic,
etc;) made- unfulfilled promises to you
last year ? Therefore, if you choose to
live by and wait for the fulfillment of
those promises this year; you are exact-"

- ly the type person that your leaders and

others perceived you to be.

But today, right now -You can flip the
scrip on those who don’t and won’t see
as God (Yahweh) sees you. It’s time
for you to be a transformer instead of
continually being a conformer.

Here’s what the word of God says to
you “Romans12: 2. And be not con-
formed to this world: but be ye trans-
formed by the renewing of your mind,
that ye may prove that which is good,

- and acceptable, and perfect, the ‘will of

“God.”

This New Year 2011, and onward
ought to be about you and your rela-
tionship with God, not religion and pol-
itics. Take a real close, and a very good
look at your religious and political
leaders; unless you deliberately choose
to remain blind and ignorant, you can’t
help from seeing that the cares and
concerns of people (or yours) is not a
priority of today’s leaders. Two of the
strongest pillars / foundations of this
world’s systems are those of religion
and politics which is filled with
hirelings / leaders that thrives on using
people to accomplish their mission /
agenda..

A true, genuine leader can be likened

to a good shepherd: Here’s the descrip- *

tion of a good shepherd verses that of a
hireling.
John.1 0:11. Iam the good shepherd:

the good shepherd giveth his life for the

sheep.

712. But he that is an hireling,; and
not the shepherd, whose own the sheep
are not, seeth the wolf coming, and
leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the
wolf catcheth them, and scatteréth the
sheep.

13. The hireling fleeth, because he is
an hireling, and careth not for the
sheep.

:14. I am the good shepherd, and —
know my sheep, “and am. known of
mine.

215. As the Father knoweth me, even
so know I the Father: and I lay down
my life for the sheep.

Religion, politics and the opinions, of |
others will cause a person to’ Te cas



beneath their God ordained privileges.
Don’t spend 2011, blaming the devil if
you refuse to make the necessary _
changes that will usher you into the

’ abundant life ( Zoe, the God ordained

life) spoken of by Yahshua.

For to long you’ve been held hostage
by your past sins and failures, and the
opinions of (especially) religious
church-folks; whereas the simplicity
and power of God’s word and the blood
of Yahshua has forgiven you and has
set you free.

Watch this

1John 1:9. If we confess our sins, he
is faithful and just to forgive us our

’ sins, and to cleanse us from all unright-

eousness.

“And

John 8:36. If the Son therefore shall
make you free, ye shall be free indeed.

Being new is a choice ! You can
choose to be new in Christ or you can
remain the same / as you are. Doing the
same things over and repeatedly and
expecting a different'result, this sort of
behaviour is that of an insane man or.
woman. ~
- And J honestly believe that you’re
not an insane person; what say you ?

Happy New You & Happy New Year!

Anglicans celebrate 150 years as a Diocese

011 will mark 150 years

since the Bahamas and

Turks and Cacious became
its own diocese in the Anglican
Church and a number of events
are being planned throughout
the year to commerate the sig-

nificant anniversary.

The Anglican Church came to The
Bahamas in the mid 1600’s with the
Eleutheran Adventurers. At that time
the Church in all British overseas (calo-

‘nial) territories (which would have

included the West Indies) came under the
Bishop of London.

In 1824, the Dioceses of Barbados and
Jamaica were formed. The territories of
The Bahamas and The Turks and Caicos
Islands came under the Diocese of
Jamaica.

In 1861, The Bahamas and Turks and
Caicos Islands became a separate diocese.
Queen Victoria issued Letters Patent
establishing this-on November 4, 1861.
Dr Charles Caulfield was consecrated
bishop on November 30, 1861. With the
issuing of the Letters, the Parish of Christ
Church was declared the Cathedral and
the “towne of Nassau” was elevated to
the status of city. In the British civil sys-
tem a “towne” could only become a city if
it had a bishop and a Cathedral.

Parishes that were established by 1861
are:
CHRIST CHURCH

- 1734
ST. JOHN - HARBOUR ISLAND

1768

ST. PATRICK ~ ELEUTHERA 1795
ST. ANDREW - EXUMA 1795
ST. DAVID — LONG CAY, ACKLINS,

CROOKED ISLAND 1795
ST. GEORGE - TURKS ISLAND 1795

ST. SAVIOUR — CAT ISLAND 1795
ST. PAUL - LONG ISLAND ~ 1795
ST. MATTHEW, N. P. (CHURCH CONSE-

CRATED 1802) 1795
ST. CHRISTOPHER — RUM CAY & WATLINGS
1795

ST. THOMAS — GRAND TURK 1823
ST. ANNE - N.P. (WITH CARMICHAEL AND

ADELAIDE) 1845
ST. MARY — N. P. 1845
ST. AGNES — N. P. 1841
‘ST. PETER’S, ABACO 1848

ST. STEPHEN — GRAND BAHAMA, INCLUDING
ANDROS, BERRY IS., BIMINI 1848
ST. PHILIP - INAGUA 1852

Bishop Laish Boyd noted that -the
anniversary is “ a truly significant mile-
stone for which God deserves our praise
and thanksgiving, and a milestone worthy
of high celebration.”

In addition to the events which will be
held, a special anniversary collect. will
also be said at masses commerating the
anniversary. It reads as follows:

‘Almighty God, by your grace and
power you have protected your Church in
The Bahamas and The Turks and Caicos
Islands for. over three hundred and sixty
years, and have given us a goodly heritage
as a Diocese for one hundred and fifty
years.



Bless our Bishops, Clergy and lay peo--

ple of your Church, the Body of Christ.
Grant, now and always, that your Word
may be truly preached and truly heard,
your Sacraments faithfully administered
and received. We especially give thanks
for those from far and near who have min-
istered to our people with dedicated service
and sacrificial love.

Finally, guide us in our generation to be
good stewards, to guard and to preserve
the sacred trust that has been handed to us.
In love, may we show forth the power of
your Holy Spirit in our Church, in our
homes, in our schools,:in our communi-

Discese of The Bahamas and




ties, and in our world. Through Jesus
Christ our Lord. Amen.

The 150th Anniversary Logo has been
designed by Andrew Archer of St
George’s Parish He is 21 years old and a
graphic art student at Chattahoochee
Technical College, Marietta, Georgia and
the year’s slogan: “One Family Under
God in. 150 Years Of Stewardship” was
created by Solange Weekes of the Church
of the Ascension, Lucaya, Grand

Bahama. She is 16 years old and a grade
12 student of Bishop Michael Eldon
School, Freeport.

members congregated in the parish hall

was utilised for Sunday morning church
services. St. John’s was recently rededi-
cated in December of 2003 by former
Diocesan Bishop Drexel Gomez.

WITH the holiday season
over, the garbage it created is
piling up as bins have gone
unemptied.

A number of readers called
The Tribune to voice their
anger and frustration over the
lack of garbage collection in
many areas of New Providence.

A resident of Grove Avenue,
near Saunders Beach, said the
last time he saw a garbage truck
was on Christmas Day.

He said: “Our rubbish was.

last collected on Christmas

Day. It seemed bizarre that the.

collectors would work on such a
day, but they did, and it was
great. Sadly, they haven’t been
back since, and our rubbish is
piling up. ~ «

“We have three full sack
and they smell. I don’t blame,

the collectors themselves, they
have a horrible job to do. I just
wish whoever is in charge
would organise a proper col-
lection schedule, or make way
for someone who can.’

A Carmichael Road resident
reported that the rubbish
beside his home. has not been
collected for over a month, and
while he has seen garbage
trucks in the area, they have

not stopped to pick up the

waste.

He said: “This is causing. a

serious health hazard. Not only.

does the uncollected garbage

create a foul:smell, but it also

attracts flies and rats.”

Earl Deveaux, Minister for
the Environment, told The Tri-
bune that at this time of year,
there’s more than the usual

he has received reports that one
weekly scheduled pick up has
been missed, he is not aware of
any areas in which the garbage
has not been collected for a

month. ,

His attorney Brian

Attorneys Thomas

said Mr Fernander, referenc-
ing the arrest of suspects in
connection to the robberies of
First Caribbean Bank at
Sandyport and a Scotiabank
in Exuma last year.

On Tuesday morning, the
cross-dressing bank robber
walked into the bank wearing

make-up and a brown wig..

The gunman was dressed in a

~ black blouse, grey pants and a

black:shawl when he held up
Fidelity's Money Centre at
superstore Robin Hood on

.Tonique Williams Darling

Highway.

Witnesses said the bandit
had.a large package in his
hand and appeared to be

delivering something to the .

bank. He asked to see the
bank's manager then took her
hostage.

The manager was forced
her into her car and the gun-
man made her drive him to

when the victim was
approached by two men in a
black Nissan Maxima, one of
whom was armed with a
handgun, who demanded

_ After robbing the man, the
two men fled west on Shirley

amount of money.

Less than 20 minutes later,

the car and escaped heading in
an unknown direction.

Shoppers at the store told
The Tribune that clerks and
customers inside the satellite
branch were unaware of the
crime until much later.

One witness said:/"The
bank was full, the guy — well,
he was dressed like a woman —

The Tribune swears to ‘dogmas of no master’

_ TODAY we publish a letter on this page
by a writer who is confused by The Tribune’s
editorials. Many times, she wrote, she heard
The Tribune criticised by people “saying
you were simply against the PLP and a
mouthpiece for the FNM.”

We can stop right there and inform the. °*

writer that we are a mouthpiece for no one.

- We support no one just because of who they
are or for the position they hold. Our sup-
port goes to whatever cause they are espous-
ing and whether that cause, in our opinion, is
good for this country.

The writer claims that in this column The
Tribune: at:one time supported union
demonstrations against the PLP:government,
but were against unions demonstrating
against the FNM government. This is incor-
rect. The decision of who we support

depends neither on the government nor the
union. We would never support a demon-

stration by anyone — regardless of which |

government was in power — unless we were

_ Satisfied that their cause was a just one.
We are in total disagreement with today’s

union agitation — and so are some of the

other unions who have withdrawn their sup- °

port from the NCTUB in this dispute —
because we do fot believe that their ‘cause
can be justified. We also believe that the 51
per cent sale of BTC to Cable & Wireless
LIME — an acronym for “Landline, Inter-
net, Mobile, Entertainment”—
best communications provider for the
Bahamas with the government owning 49

per cent from which individual Bahamians _

can eventually become shareholders.
The Tribune does not support govern-
ments just for the sake of supporting gov-
‘sernments, nor do we support unions for the
sake of supporting:unions. We support prin-
‘ciples and causes, which we believe would be
‘good for the Bahamian people — in making
that decision we let governments, and unions
fall where they may. -
_._ As Bishop Simeon Hall said in yester-
day’s Tribune:

“It is becoming very difficult to support
workers and their. unions in causes they
believe to be right without first hurdling-the
memory of the last experience of inexcus-
able, poor, and shoddy: service rendered.
Exceptional and good service are becoming
all too rare in our Bahamas.”

And this is why Cable & Wireless
(LIME) is needed at this time to take the
Bahamas to a new level — one from which
this country can compete internationally.

Yesterday we called a Jamaican business-
man in Kingston for his opinion of Gays
services in his country.

He agreed that in Jamaica years ago there

was public dissatisfaction with C&W when it.

was a monopoly, but since markets were
thrown open, C&W has had to shape up —

it’s now an entirely new company, he said, a -

.will be the.

company with aggressive selling, resulting
in lower prices and better service.

Today, he said, C&W is an excellent com-
pany. “The services provided in Jamaica,” he
said, “are very good. In-the old days it was a
different company.” Those days, he said,
were gone.

Asked if he thought it would be a good
company to take the Bahamas to new
heights. He thought the Bahamas couldn’t
do better, then he added: “Even if they got
the old Cable and Wireless, it would be bet-
ter than BTC is today — BTC’s service is
atrocious!”

Is this what this letter writer expects us to
support just to prove that we are not against
unions and workers, too many of whom,
commented Bishop Hall, “seem mired in a
culture of bad attitude”?

That is not how decisions are made when
we approach our computer to write this col-
umn. No matter which way they “skin this

cat” -we are against this demonstration and’

the stand taken by union members who are
fighting for their jobs and not for the good of
the country. The only way to retain their
jobs is to give such superior service that no
employer would want to part with them —
demonstrations will only position them near-
er the exit door when decision day comes.
The Tribune is fighting for the good of all
Bahamians and the future of this country
— this includes BTC workers who, whether
they believe it or not, will have a brighter
future under a new administration.

The letter writer made an interesting
observation, which, coupled with all the oth-

er comments made in the past few days, con-.

vince us that we are no longer dealing with a

’ BTC union matter, but rather a PLP push to *

position its party for the 2012 election.
Said the writer: “Now all of a sudden,
you are so bitterly against the unions now in
their fight against the sale of BTC. Those
very same unions and their demonstrations

in the 80’s and 90’s brought Mr Ingraham’

and the FNM to power in 1992.”

Has the writer unconsciously let the cat’
out of the bag? Are these demonstrations

orchestrated to push the Ingraham adminis-

. tration aside and open the doors for the PLP

in 2012? ..

We believe that more and more Bahami-
ans are beginning to see the true light and
instead of the promised massive demon-

_ strations, more of them are going to be melt-,

ing into the shadows. Those following the
union in this programme are, in our opinion,
risking their future prospects. —

But this is our decision in this column, and
that is theirs in their workplace. When it is all
over we shall see who regrets the positions
they took.

As for the letter writer, The Tribune still «

“swears to the dogmas of no master” régard-
less of how the public views us.

Baffled by

editorials

criticising
e unions

EDITOR, The Tribune.

Please permit me to express
my opinions on something
that is troubling me greatly.

For many, many years I
have held your newspaper in

high esteem for fair and unbi-

ased reporting and your
down-the-middle editorials.
Many times I have heard the
criticisms of your paper from
people saying you were sim-
ply against the PLP anda
mouthpiece for the FNM.

I dismissed those criticisms

because from what I know, —

they came mainly from PLPs.
Your recent posture on the
unions and BTC now, how-
ever, have me scratching my
head.

I find your recent criticisms
of the unions puzzling and
baffling to say the least. I
vividly remember your clear
and outright support of the

LETTERS

letters@tr:



unions in their demonstra-
tions against the PLP Gov-
ernment in the 80s, eg Mr
Leonard Archer and the BUT
and in 1992, Mr Shane Gibson
and the BCPOU. I remember
their sit down demonstrations
on Bay Street outside Parlia-
ment and you openly sup-
ported their right to demon-
strate and also what they were

demonstrating against,
whether they were right or
wrong.

Now all of a.sudden, you
are so bitterly against the
unions now in their fight
against the sale of BTC.
Those very same unions and
their demonstrations in the
80’s and 90’s brought Mr

Ingraham and the FNM to
power in 1992. How come?
Why is your position now so
different?

Whether you have realised
it or not, you are losing a
great deal of support in the
public because it honestly
seems that your newspaper
has honestly and truly gone
against your own. motto of
“swearing to the dogma of no
master.”

It may not be so but your
editorials truly make it appear
as if the present administra-
tion are now your “masters.”
Many of us will be reading
closely to see whether you dis-
abuse our minds of this view.

Thank you for allowing me

, to express my views.

I cry shame on Tribune’s editorial writer

EDITOR, The Tribune. —

It is sad and regrettable that
an alleged “Haitian” village

“at Fire Trail Road was

destroyed by a mystery fire
recently leaving scores of per-
sons homeless and without
the basic necessities. As a
committed Christian and a
humanistic individual, my
sympathies and heart go out
to those persons.

I took great offence, how-
ever, to a recent Editorial in
The Tribune dated the 30th
Décember, 2010 whereby the
writer asked the question:
‘Where is the Bahamian com-
passion?” Having been a life-

.- long reader and supporter of

that publication, especially
during the life of the late great
and irreplaceable Sir Etienne
Dupuch, I was flabbergasted
to read the same.

There are no other people
like Bahamians. Yes, we have
our sets of personal: and
national problems, but when-
ever the occasion arises for
us to show empathy for others
we do so in an exemplary
manner, bar none. For gen-
erations we have borne and
tolerated the proliferation of

_ illegal Haitian shanty towns

throughout our major islands.



For countless years sus-
pected illegal immigrants,
inclusive of Haitians and their
children, whom no govern-
ment seems to want to regu-
larize, have taken advantage
of our educational and health

‘care systems. Many of them

erect shacks and other
dwellings on land which they

_ don’t own or lease. Hundreds

of them ‘are ,now self
employed as hackers and tele-
phone card vendors without
regard or respect to our immi-
gration laws. Others have

integrated into the Bahami-

an society and have entered
the middle and upper classes.
Yet, the misguided editori-

al writer questions: “Where -

is the compassion of Bahamj-
ans?” The Bible has admon-
ished nations over the cen-
turies in this vein: “To thine
own-self be true.” Many of us
are able to remember the hur-
ricanes which devastated
Grand Bahama. Our fellow
Bahamians down there are
still catching hell and suffering
from the effects, of those nat-
ural events. Several Bahami-
ans lost their lives when the
cranes were demolished by a
twister.

Thousands are unable to
find any sorts of jobs.

Thousands of homeless and

mentally challenged Bahami- .

ans roam the major streets of
New Providence and Grand
Bahama on a daily basis.
Hundreds were let go from

their jobs over the past three |
' years and many have lost

their homes and personal dig-
nity. Where are the editorials
in The Tribune lamenting
these events and where is the

compassion .by so-called.

Christian Bahamians for their
fellow citizens? When Haiti
had the earthquake a promi-
nent alleged web shop owner
sent a 1/4 million, and more,
down to Haiti. What has he
ever given back to a fellow
Bahamian in adverse circum-
stances?

Successive governments
and their media allies have
aided and abetted the institu-

tion and development of ille-
gal Haitian settlements in this
nation on all sorts of bogus
grounds. No doubt, some of
them are looking for political
brownie points, but should
they do so at the expense of
ordinary, decent and hard
working Bahamians? Hun-
dreds of Bahamian children
were threatened with expul-
sion from government oper-
ated schools .the other day
because their parents were
challenged in paying certain
fees. Now, the erstwhile Min-
ister of Education, et al, is
lamenting the fact that the
school uniforms and supplies
of children of illegal Haitian
‘parentage were destroyed in
the mysterious fire?

I cry shame on The Tri-
bune’s editorial writer, who,
obviously, is biased towards .
the ruling party and its lead-
ership. It’s sister publication,
The Nassau Guardian also,
periodically, provides propa-
ganda support to the domi-
nant party of today. This is
patently wrong. In my humble
view, newspapers are sup-
posed to be fair and balanced.
Don’t ask the trade unions
embroiled in a dispute down
at Bahamas Telecommunica-
tions Corporation that, how- -
.ever, as-they would laugh you
to scorn.

Persons who are illegally
here in the Bahamas should
not and must not be tolerated.
Yes, where and when com-
passion is necessary it should
be displayed but must we, col-

_lectively, cut off our noses to
spite our faces?

-Some 100 odd millions of
dollars were pledged to the
Republic of Haiti following
the recent earthquake.

Surely, the compassionate
fellow Haitians and their Pres-
ident could have sent a hun-
dred or so thousands of dol-
lars to assist their compatri-
ots? To God then, in all of
these things, be the glory!

GB tourism performs

‘fairly well’ despite
air arrivals decrease

By DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport Reporter
dmaycock@tribunemedia.net



FREEPORT - Despite a significant
decrease in air arrivals in 2010, Grand
Bahama’s tourism industry has per-
formed “fairly well,” according to offi-
cials.

Tourism officials reported that the
drop-off in air arrivals had a significant
impact on the overall tourism figures for
Grand Bahama, which fell short of the
one million visitor mark.

However, Tourism Director General

_David Johnson noted that the increase in ©

cruise arrivals and cruise stop-over
arrivals has made up for the loss in air
arrivals.

“Given the state of the industry over-
all, I can say that Grand Bahama had a
fair performance,” he reported to the
media.

“We are not celebrating profits and
any strong growth, but Grand Bahama
has survived and been able to hold its
own by holding the industry at current
levels under very difficult circum-
stances.’

The tourism executive said that
demand drives airlifts, and the Grand
Bahama tourism product has not been
competitive enough to create a turn-
around.

Mr Johnson told ZNS radio that his
ministry is now seeking to come up with
a strategy to differentiate Grand Bahama
from other islands in the Bahamas by
marketing it as an “all inclusive” desti-
nation.

“The all inclusive éongept seems to be
thriving. It is one area we should con-
tinue to explore. '

“If you can imagine an all inclusive
offer in Grand Bahama where (persons)
are not confined to one hotel as in
Jamaica and other places, and are able to
roam between 10 to 20 restaurants at
various properties and facilities through
the island, that, I think, would be a
strong differentiation for Grand Bahama.

“And all of the properties would ben-
efit tremendously from it if they can exe-
cute it well enough.

“We are resuming our efforts to come
up with a very effective execution of that
strategy, that is the most immediate task
we are taking on for 2011,” he said.

reported: the stabbing of 22-
year-old Mitchell Nini, a
Canadian tourist who was
attacked after attempting to
catch a man who had
robbed his friend.

Mr Nini told The Tribune
that the group was getting
into their car after leaving
the club when the robbery
took place.

The stabbing occurred in
the area of Marlin Drive,

thief and was accosted by a
man who jumped out of a
car with a knife.

Mr Nini, a college student,
was stabbed seven times and

tal.

Lisa Bullard, a spokesper-
son for Club Luna, told The
Tribune yesterday that the
club ‘ ‘wishes a speedy Tecov-
ery” for Mr Nini:

Noting that the attack did
not take place “in or near”
the Club itself, Ms Bullard
said “close to 4,000 people
attended” the Black Out
party, organised by Kenny
Mackey, and there were “no
incidents in or around the
club, including our parking
lot.”

“We just wanted to let the

‘public know that they can
feel safe when they come ‘

here,” said the spokesper-

Ms Bullard added that the
club had its own security and
police made’ checks at the
yenue for security purposes

‘throughout the night.

She added that a request
was made for police to
patrol in the general area

and “outskirts” of the club

during the event.

“The only disappointment
is that this did not occur and
we do hope that in the
future we might have even
more cooperation from the

police to help stave offsuch _

crimes,” said Ms Bullard.

THE Bahamas National
Trust says the extended pow-
ers it has been granted by
parliament are “vital” to its
efforts to protect and pre-
serve the environment.

Last month, the BNT was
given explicit legislative
authority to advise both the
public and private sectors on
sustainable development
issues and policies.

The new Bahamas Nation- ’

al Trust Act, introduced by
Environment Minister Earl
Deveaux in October, was
approved by Parliament in
December and will come into
effect early in the New Year.
It marks the first revision of

the organisation’s governing
law in 51 years. ©

' The BNT was created in
1959, primarily to protect and
manage designated land and
sea areas “of beauty, or nat-
ural or historic interest ... for
the benefit and enjoyment
of the Bahamas”.

The amended Act now
specifically authorises the
BNT “to advise both the gov-
ernment and the private sec-
tor generally on development
issues and policies; and con-
servation, environmental,
biodiversity, natural and cul-
tural heritage and resource
management issues.”

Other:amendments seek to
strengthen the BNT’s ability
to manage national parks and
enforce conservation regula-
tions; and to modernise it’s
organisational structure.

“The Bahamas of today is

very different from what it.

was in 1959, in terms of
human population and pres-
our natural
resources,” said BNT presi-
dent Neil McKinney. “These
amendments are a result of
actual problems that we
faced over the years, and we
are grateful tothe Minister
of the Environment and the
Attorney-General for their
support in completing this

vital reform.“

Amendments

Most significantly, the new
Act empowers.the BNT to
prohibit or regulate activities

. on Jand:or on the sea béd in

protected areas. Penalties for
breaching park regulations
now include fines of up to
$100,000 or ‘six months
imprisonment, plus confisca-

{. . tion of goods and vessels.. *

"Our current national park
system protects about one

per cent of the country's total,

land and marine territory,"
Mr McKinney said. "But the
government is committed to

protecting 20 per cent of.

Bahamian land and sea areas
by the year 2020 and this will

translate into significant addi-
- tional responsibilities for the
' BNT. It also means that our

. “The environmental stakes
are much higher today,” said

Pericles Maillis, a lawyer and '
past president of the BNT

who .led the legislative
review. “The costs of reme-
dial action are high and dam-
age can be irreversible.
Development pressure on
private lands and marine
areas adjacent to national
parks is rising and this is
sometimes exacerbated by
confusion as to jurisdiction.
We need to guard our her-

-itage with teeth.”

. Weaponry

The ‘Act widens the types
of weaponry that cannot be
used within national parks.

These now include “explo-
sives, fireworks, firearms,
harpoon guns, cross-bow or
longbow arrows, slingshots
or the throwing or discharge
of missiles or the use of har-
poons lances, grains or gigs,
and spears including spears
discharged by Hawaiian sling
or spear gun.”

The BNT can also prohib-
it modern transportation
methods such as all-terrain
vehicles, motorcycles, jet skis,
air boats and ultra-light air-
craft, which were uncommon

. Or non- -existent in 1959.

When the BNT was creat-
ed, the concept of a total no-
take.zone was not necessari-
ly in contemplation, and lan-
guage in the original Act has
often frustrated efforts to
prevent the harvesting or
exploitation of protected bio-
logical resources.

- The revised Act allows the
BNT to prohibit “hunting,
fishing, trapping, hauling with
nets or bolos of any kind,
spearing, striking, harassing,
chasing or driving or shoot-
ing, touching, taking or gath-
ering by any means any flora
or fauna, including the eggs,

nest, young or larvae or

seeds, roots or, cuttings there-
of” on land or-sea.

The BNT also-now has the
authority to prohibit or reg-
ulate film production in
national parks to. prevent

damage to the environment. .

The introduction ‘of inva-
sive species (such as rac-
coons, cats or lionfish) to
fragile island ecosystems is
of great concern and can be
devastating for indigenous
wildlife. The BNT now. has
the power to prohibit and

-Temove such.animals - includ-
ing livestock’- from protected
areas.

"The introduction of rac-

coons - originally as pets -
- onto’ the Abaco mainland

was an unmitigated disaster,"

Mr Maillis said. "They repro-
duce quickly and destroy:the
native wildlife. There are
reports of Cobras being sight-

‘ed.on Abaco and other exot-

ate, opposition



Earl Deveaux

executive director Eric.
Carey.

“These new areas and
annexations increased our
management responsibility to
over a million acres of land
and sea territory, so a revi-
sion of the Act became a pri-
ority to help us achidve our
conservation goals.”

Among housekeeping mea-
sures included in the revised
Act is an expansion of the
BNT’s governing council
from 21 to 29 members, with
15 elected and 14 appointed
by government agencies and

- scientific organisations.

“The increase in
appointees allows represen-
tatives from the College of |
the Bahamas and the Uni-
versity of Florida to be added
to the council without losing
the prestige and scientific
connections of.the founding
members. A larger number

' of elected members will also

allow for staggered periods
of service to enhance conti-
nuity and institutional mem-
ory.” said Lynn Gape ,
deputy executive director.

Conduct Code

A code of conduct will be
developed for council mem-
bers, as well as procedures for
the removal of those who may .
be in breach of such code.

The Act empowers the
BNT to. update its election
procedures. This will eventu- -
ally allow the general mem-
bership to vote by postal, elec-
tronic or proxy balloting to
enable participation at annu-
al general meetings without
requiring.a physical presence.

‘The revised Act also seeks
to protect the public interest
by addressing encroachment
on the edges of national -
parks, as well as the enclosure
of land and pasturing of live-
stock within parks. Squatting
on and adverse possession of:
BNT lands is now prohibited.

While the new legislation
was being debated in the Sen-
‘senator
Jerome Fitzgerald questioned
whether the BNT is "worthy"
of extended powers. |

Police have detained a shopkeeper at a road-

"Right now the area is still cordoned off as
we try to figure out what exactly happened,"

Vyphuis said.

whose head was blown off by shrapnel from
the grenade.

Ministry of Health to unleash
major campaign against obesity

By MATT MAURA

PUBLIC Health officials
from the Ministry of Health
‘and the Department of Pub-
lic Health are expected to
“launch a major campaign

against obesity early this
year, aimed at winning the
“battle of the bulge” among
Bahamians.

The programme will be
launched under the auspices
of the National Chronic Dis-
ease Prescription Drug Plan,
which is administered by the
National Insurance Board.

It will be an expansion of
some of the work already
begun by the Healthy
Lifestyles Secretariat of the
Ministry of Health and the
Department of Public
Health, which was geared
toward education and aware-
ness and is part of a far-
reaching plan to. reverse the

increasing incidences of,

_chronic, non-communicablé

diseases currently negative-
ly affecting Bahamians.

Obesity and its complica-

. tions, including chronic, non-

communicable diseases such

-as diabetes, heart disease and

hypertension, have become’

a major cause of concern for
-healthcare officials as 70 per
_cent of Bahamians are either
_obese and/or overweight,
_according to most recent sta-

tistics.

Chronic, non-communica-
ble diseases and their attend-
‘ing complications account for

60 per cent of the deaths in

the Bahamas.

Health officials say the dol-

lar cost could be in the bil-
lions of dollars in terms of
treatment, follow-up care,
loss of jobs and therefore
incomes and decreased pro-
ductivity.

Health Minister Dr
Hubert Minnis said the “war
on obesity” campaign has
been designed to make
Bahamians aware of the risk
and dangers of obesity and
‘being overweight can present
to individuals, companies,
‘families, finances, the coun-

-try’s healthcare system and
the country itself if left
unchecked.

He said the programme,

‘initiated under the preventa-
tive strategies section of the
National Chronic Diseases
Prescription Drug Plan, will
focus in greater detail on
healthy lifestyles, including

health lifestyle choices,
healthy eating, healthy food
preparation and the benefits
of diet and exercise.

The National Chronic Dis-
ease Prescription Drug Plan
was implemented in the sum-
mer of 2010.

“The types of foods
Bahamians eat, the way they
prepare those foods, the large
amounts they eat and a lack
of exercise are all major con-
tributors to Bahamians being
obese and/or overweight,” Dr
Minnis said.

“While we understand that
there are some healthy foods
that are_expensive, Bahami-
ans can still make healthy

_changes to their diets by find-

ing alternative foods to eat,
finding alternative ways to
prepare those foods, eating at
practical time frames and by
reducing the portions they
eat.

“Those changes, when |

incorporated with exercise,
can have a profound impact
on healthy lifestyles,” Dr
Minnis said.

The Health Minister said
late-night eating — a habit of

‘many Bahamians — is partic-

ularly: unhealthy. iow. cose

“A lot. of persons, espe-
cially professional pérsons,
tend to have bad eating
habits in that they arrive
home late at night, eat late
and then subsequently go to
bed right after they are fin-
ished eating. That is not good
at all and only adds to the
problem,” he said.

Dr Minnis said incorporat-
ing exercise into one’s daily
or weekly regimen will pay
tremendous dividends.

He encouraged individuals
and families to take advan-
tage of the green spaces cre-
ated throughout New Provi-
dence and the Family Islands
to launch exercise pro-
grammes.

“Those persons who can-
not afford to pay gym fees
can find alternative, green
spaces in which they can
exercise,” Dr Minnis said. “If
you look at the facilities at
Goodman’s Bay, R M Bailey
Park, Fort Charlotte and
many others, for example,

you would see those are ©

spaces that are highly utilised

“The new highway just

green space that can be
utilised to exercise. There are
safe walking spaces there,

ular basis and it is-well-lit.~

The open environment is a
great alternative if one can-
not afford to go to a gym.

“T also encourage parents

ities, as being active and

Top ten legal resolutions
to make for the New Year

By RIONDA GODET,
LLB, LLM’

Let’s face it! s
Bahamians are notorious for putting
‘things off, but 2011 promises to be different!
Gone are those resolutions that-had no bite
to them. Just follow the Halsbury Cham-
bers’ Top Ten Resolutions: Five for you
and Five for your business. Before you know
it, you will be setting a course that, when you
come to the end of the year, you will be
able to look back and feel as if you have
actually accomplished something. Here we

go!

TOP 5 LEGAL MUST DO’S FOR
YOURSELF

1. Draw and/or update your Will

Why leave evervtiung you have. worked
so hard for to chance or even worse,
escheat?

Drawing a Will certainly brings clarity
to your estate and takes a lot of confusion
and emotion out of the equation. It is the
time for you to look back on your life and
reward those people who have always been
there for you, and who you feel will appre-
ciate your hard earned assets — whether fam-
ily members or not!

Either way, do not be fooled by the old
Bahamian superstition that suggests immi-
nent death the minute you sign your Last
Will and Testament! ‘If you figure you are
going to die someday, does when really mat-
ter?

Find a good attorney and pull together all
of your bank accounts, land papers, share
certificates, etc, to aid in easy property iden-
tification.

Know who your intended beneficiaries
are and their respective addresses. Your
Executor/trix should be a person in whom
you have absolute confidence. The good
news is, even if you change your mind mid-
year or acquire additional assets, you can
always just create a new Will. The important
thing is to have one. That goes for you too,
young people!

2. Get all of your land papers properly
registered
This is critical. Most people put this off
because of the cost factor. One thing is true
in life - whether you pay now or pay later,
either way, you will pay. It is better that
you get it done now. In this regard, here
- are two things you need to be aware of:

(a) Stamp Duty: This is a charge payable
to the Public Treasury upon completion of
the purchase of property or obtaining a loan
from a bank. Please note that stamp duty on
conveyances is calculated at higher per-
' centages than mortgages and it is

important to pay the same as soon as pos-
sible in order to avoid late stamp duty fees
charged any time after six months. The

longer you wait to pay stamp duty, the more -

late stamp fees you will have to pay.





CHAMB [: RS

Counsel te Antorneys-at-Lasy + Notertes Public

(b) Recording Fees: The Registrar Gen-
eral will only accept documents for record-
ing if stamp duties are paid first. The record-
ing process is a notice to all persons as to the
ownership of a parcel or lot of land. If two
persons purchase the same parcel or lot of
land, the person that records their docu-
ments first is recognized as the owner of it.
Suffice it' to say, “a stitch in time saves nine,”

' or the first in time generally prevails.

3, It is time to move on

Come on! You have been separated now
for nearly seven years. Now may be the best
time to sever those ties and get on with your
life. Do not misunderstand me — we are all
advocates for the nuclear family, but some-

times you have to be real. If, after seven ..

years (may be more or may be less — it is
honestly up to you), your “spouse” has not

‘made the decision to move back perma-

nently, it is highly unlikely that they will do
so this year.

There is an old saying — “Why buy the
whole cow when you can have the milk for
free?”

Stop hanging on and work towards an —

amicable property adjustment settlement
and determine what is in the best interest of
the children, if any. Get a good attorney
who can help you keep balance in this. ©

4. Resolve debt collection/foreclosure
issues

People! You know you owe money! Do
not let “them” call you — Go and get your
business fixed. Your troubles will not go

away just because you choose to ignore them °

or bury your head in the sand. Try to nego-
tiate more affordable terms and conditions
or consolidate your outstanding debt. The

financial institutions understand that these.

are difficult times and are far more inclined
to be cooperative when you make the first
move. Once you have established your new
agreement, modify your lifestyle so that you

can at all times, stay current. This means —

you may miss out on the weekly spa retreat
or hairdo, but trust me, the interest that
accrues on a debt really needs no addition-

al company!

5. Acquire generational property
We all know the age old story here. You
lived on the property from since “you knew

your- self!” You can even point out the

tamarind tree that your great grandfather

planted, from which he plucked the switch-
es to “tan” your pappy’s hide. Yep, we know
the story. Show me the papers! Unless you
can prove long tenure via the Quieting
Process, anyone else’s claim is as good as

IN THIS PHOTO released by the Cayman Islands Department of Tourism, divers watch the sinking of the
USS Kittiwake, a 1945-vintage submarine rescue ship, off the Cayman Islands, Wednesday Jan. 5, 2011.
Contractors flooded the decommissioned U.S. Navy ship to sink it in the waters off the Cayrnan Islands
where officials hope the vessel will attract tourists and fish.

KINGSTON, Jamaica

CONTRACTORS began
flooding a decommissioned
U.S. Navy ship Wednesday to
sink it in the clear waters off
the Cayman Islands, where
officials hope the vessel will
attract tourists and fish, accord-
ing to Associated Press.

Plans called for the USS Kit-
tiwake, a 1945-vintage subma-
rine rescue ship, to rest on a
sandy bottom off Grand Cay-
man's Seven Mile Beach. The
47-foot-tall (14-meter) ship will
be at a depth of 62 feet (19
meters), so the top deck should
be close to the Caribbean Sea's
surface, making it easily acces-
sible for snorkelers and divers.

Crews were carefully flood-
ing the battered hulk in hopes
the 2,200-ton (1,995 metric ton)
ship would settle upright. Holes
were punched in the hull and
large pumps were gradually
piping sea water into the ship,

Cayman Islands Department of Tourism/AP

which was compartmentalized
into three sections.

"I'm on pins and needles.
We're trying to keep the ship
on a level, even keel so hope-
fully it will go down nice and
smooth," project manager Nan-
cy Easterbrook said during a
phone interview from a nearby
boat on Seven Mile Beach.

The Kittiwake's scuttling
raised mixed emotions in Jon
Glatstein, who was a sailor on
the vessel from 1984 to 1986.
He traveled to this wealthy

British Caribbean territory to

watch his old ship sink beneath
the waves.

"This is the first time I've

seen the ship in 25 years, and
she's in pretty rough shape. But
she's been serving divers all her
life and now she's going to con-
tinue doing just that. That's got
to be a whole lot better than
getting melted down for razor
blades," said Glatstein, now an
IT manager in Miami.

About'40 boats carrying
locals and tourists circled
around the ship to watch it
sink. .

Several parasailers enjoyed
a birds-eye view under clear
skies.

Officials had hoped-to sink
the ship Tuesday, but windy
weather and choppy seas
forced a postponement.

Premier McKeeva Bush said
the operation "represents the
single most significant occur-
rence in a decade for Cayman's
dive industry."

Besides being a lure for
tourists, the Kittiwake will be
an artificial reef that can shelter
fish and crustaceans in waters
known for excellent visibility
and abundant sea life.

betts, a Russian frigate sunk
off the coast of Cayman Brac in

yours. You may be sure, this sort of action
does not come cheaply and the Courts will
apply intense scrutiny to any application,
but if you know the history, now is the time
to get it done while the relative Affiants are
still alive to assist you in the process. Time
waits for no man.

TOP 5 LEGAL MUST DO’S FOR
YOUR BUSINESS

6. Have a clear vision for your business

No matter the size of your empire, every-
thing rises and falls with Leadership, and
one thing that leaders do, is plan. You’ve
heard it before: Fail to plan, plan to fail. It
is your choice. To move to the next level,
you have got to have clear, actionable, mea-
surable and specific goals that guide your
every effort. Without these, you are simply
a rudderless ship on life’s rolling sea, being
driven to and fro and tossed with every gust
of wind and swelling tide. This is not a good
situation to be in. Engage a professional
that can help establish goals that work for
you and your employees.

_ 7, Incorporate your company

‘You have had your business going for -

years now. Do the right thing — treat it like
a real business and get it incorporated. In the
event of any legal action, the action will be
taken against your company, and not you
directly. This is the best way to protect your
interest, as the incorporation of a company
assists in limiting the extent of your liability.
Any action, as it were, will be waged against
the company and its assets, as opposed to
you and your personal assets. A word to
the wise is sufficient.

8. Review all of your contracts & compa-

nyc aument.

Think about it. How old are your “cur-
rent” documents? When last did you revise
them to fit today’s working environment?

‘Are you keeping pace with changing laws
and regulations? Do, all of your employees -
_ have a Contract of Employment, complete ~

with job description, Employee Handbook,
Compliance statement, etc? If not, why
not? This is a definite must to clearly estab-

ties shared between the employer and
employee. The sooner you do this, the bet-
ter.

9. Consider arbitration/mediation for dis-
putes

For many, the notion of private and bind-
ing arbitration provides a genuine alternative
to litigation. Everybody wins in this equa-
tion. Most Industrial Agreements have this
clause as relates to work place disputes and
more recently; the Arbitration Act actually
makes it

easier for businesses to have their mat-
ters heard without the need for costly liti-
gation from a breach of contract standpoint.
Mediation opportunities may even exist “in-
house.” A number of companies host inter-
nal grievance review processes wheréby
employees may have their matter heard

before an independent impartial panel,

which has the power to either uphold, over-
turn or modify a decision made. To save
your litigation dollars related to employee
disputes, this truly is a viable option.

10. Review the Health and Safety in the
Workplace Act
It is absolutely amazing the number of
employers who do not even know about the
existence of this Act, yet, a careful review
and application of the same can save you
hundreds of thousands of dollars of liability.
Think about it this way, creating a safer
work place for your employees saves $$$$ in

paying for non-productive time.

Check your floor surfaces. Watch out for
those leaks and oil residues. Properly iden-
tify hazardous or. potentially hazardous
areas, chemicals and materials and train
your staff in proper usage and/or association

THE Broadcasting Corpo-
ration of the Bahamas has
issued a statement advising
that contrary to the “erro-
neous news release issued by
the Progressive Liberal Par-
ty,” televised news broadcasts
from the Northern Service
have not been discontinued.

Rather, the statement said,
Northern Service will continue
to produce a 30-minute
regional .television newscast,
but only for a regional audi-
ence.

The change in broadcast’

format is to take effect Mon-
day, December 10. Other pro-
gramming changes will be
introduced at the same time,
the BCB said.

“The regional television
news broadcast approach is
no different to the
local/regional broadcast of
Northern Service radio news
that has taken place for ages
and continues to take place.

"This reconfiguration of our
news product, while seeking
to expand rather than curtail
the production and distribu-
tion of regional news by ZNS,
saves the corporation trans-

LOCAL NEWS

ZNS Northern Service televised news
broadcasts ‘have not been discontinued’

Broadcasting Corporation

of the Bahamas responds

to ‘erroneous’ PLP release

mission costs,” explained BCB
chairman Michael Moss.

"A regional newscast will
still be produced, and major
news items from the northern
Bahamas will continue to feed
into the national newscast."

He noted that when the
Northern Service was estab-
lished in 2009, the intent was
to provide a regional news
broadcast for the northern
Bahamas.

“Tt fulfilled that mnadare
for only a'short time, and then
lost its way. The Northern Ser-
vice newscast essentially
became .a local, Grand
Bahama-centric newscast,
broadcast to ‘the entire
Bahamas. Viewers were, as a

consequence often subjected ©

to receiving a double-dose of
Northern Bahamas news as
major items from the North-
ern Service newscast were

then rebroadcast nationwide
as part of the national news-
cast.”

When the board began
looking at ways to restructure
the corporation to meet the
government's financial guide-
lines and mandate to become

a true public service broad-.

cast, the recommendation was
made to eliminate production
of a 30-minute Monday to Fri-
day newscast from Grand
Bahama in favour of retain-

. ing a small team in Freeport to

gather news for use in the
national newscast, Mr Moss
said. ;
This recommendation was
later modified, resulting in
incremental increased annual
costs of about $500,000 while

‘saving. 12 Northern Service

jobs.
Initially, the new regional
newscasts will primarily focus

on Abaco and Grand
Bahama, but will expand to
Bimini over time, the chair-

_man said.

Major news items from the
region will continue to be fea-
tured on the national news-
cast, he said.

The BCB statement added:
“ZNS has.been challenged to
increase its revenue efforts in
the northern Bahamas in
order to sustain this service.

“From a practical stand-
point, Northern Service
regional news will air on ZNS
Channel 13, but will be seen
only on Grand Bahama and
Abaco initially. The Northern
Service will be authorised to
break into national transmis-
sion for 30 minutes Monday
to Friday on the Cable
Bahamas system to broadcast
a regional newscast for its cov-
erage area. National pro-
gramming will continue unin-
terrupted to all other islands.

“In the wake of its recent
restructuring, the Corporation
has begun a wide-ranging
operational review aimed at
securing a sustainable future
for ZNS as a public: service

broadcaster. Such a transfor-
mation requires a major shift
in resources, attitudes, work
habits and responsibilities, as
well as the implementation of
a new legislative and regula-
tory framework.

“Over the past three years,
the board has sought to bring
some measure of financial and
professional accountability to
a public corporation that has
never had to face economic
reality or operate indepen-
dently. In terms of program-
ming, we have sought, within
our limited means, to expand
educational and current affairs
shows. We have converted
ZNS.1 (1540 AM now simul-
cast on 104.5 FM) into a truly
national service, featuring
exclusively Bahamian music
and talk. And we have begun
the task of consolidating the
corporation's additional radio
services in order to strengthen
our core product.

“The board and manage-
ment are currently engaged in
the development of a realis-
tic business plan to help the
corporation achieve its new
mission.”

‘Record arrivals and deficient equipment’ led to airport chaos

FROM page one

-wait so long on the tarmac he

had to return to the terminal
to. refuel. He said there were
instances of passengers miss-
ing connections due to the
“exorbitant” delays. Some
passengers had to wait two

hours for take off on flights

scheduled to last 15 minutes.
Roscoe Perpall, president
of the Bahamas Air Traffic

- Controller’s Union, “acknowl-

edged” the delays on the hol-
iday weekend, in particular on
January 2, when there were

two to three hour delays..’

He said a “high volume” of

traffic over the weekend mag-
nified some of the problems

| that have plagued the aviation

sector for decades.
Based on conservative esti-

‘mates, at least 700 aircraft tax-
-ied through LPJA on Sunday,

said Mr Perpall. The average
density is 400, he said.
Vincent Vanderpool-Wal-
lace, Minister of Tourism and
Aviation, said he.was advised
there may have been record
numbers achieved in local air-
lift on the weekend; resulting
in usual delays; however, he
is waiting on confirmation on
the numbers.
‘Ground stops at Miami



International Airport, a main
hub for flights into the
Bahamas contributed to the
problems, according to Mr
Perpall.

“When the volume is high
the problems are magnified,

‘but the challenges are always
' there. The density just mag-
‘nified the problem, * said Mr

Perpall.

Some of the delays were
“avoidable” had the necessary
systems been in place, said air
traffic controllers at a press
briefing yesterday.

“It is a big problem, but the

‘attention and priority it is get-

ting is not adequate to address
the problem,” said Mr Perpall.
“We are working with mal-

and deficient com- '

¢ up to par,” he

said, also noting that automa-
tion is a desperate need.

Mr Vanderpool- -Wallace

said he “understands their

frustration,” but the industry is —

finally getting the attention it
needs. The minister referred
the $50 million loan from the
International Development
Bank (IDB) to restructure the
aviation sector. .

“There are several issues
that have been out there for a
long period of time, but we
are on the road to fixing them.
The government has commit-
ted to make substantial and

. Significant improvements.
‘That is very much a part of

what we are committed to
do,” he said.

A new overall sector policy
is in the works, said-Mr Van-
derpool-Wallace, with the
government working to arrive
at a white paper, from a green
paper already developed.

In a country with 64 air-
ports, a residential population
of 350,000 and a visiting pop-
ulation of five million, he said
there was a need to rationalise
the aviation sector on the
whole.

The new policy will “opti-

mise the benefits to the
Bahamian people from avia-
tion development,” he said.

In the meantime, air traffic
officials say the Bahamas has
escaped an incident in large
part thanks to manual back
up systems, new technology
in place on board aircraft, the
“blessing of clear skies” and
vigilant pilots.

“What we have is a group of
professional persons that are

’ bending over backwards to

ensure maximum safety,” he
said. But with deficient equip-
ment, Mr Perpall said the pro-
fessionals could only do so
much.

The situation could have
been worse. If the radar
equipment failed, air traffic
officials would have had to
“use increased separation
standards” and the waits
would have been longer.

The possibility of this still
exists, said Mr Perpall. Indus-
try professionals had their fin-

gers crossed all holiday sea-'

son, hoping the 25-year-old
radar equipment used today
would last through the New

Year. It did, but the threat i is

not gone.

_ The sauipaient was

installed in 1985. Although it
has received some upgrades

. over the years, Mr Perpall said

it was built with a 10-year
lifespan.
’ There have been upgrades
to the antennas and other
mechanical equipment over
the years, but the “interface
for the radar system has had
no upgrades,” he said.
Stepping into the local air
traffic control room is like
“walking back into history,”
said Lorenzo Carroll, another
air traffic controller.

“We don’t want them to |

wait until the international
community black: lists the
country and issues aviation
advisories to see some imme-
diacy. However, it seems as

though ‘that is the only way

the attention will come,” said
Mr Perpall.

A GREAT START TO NEW YEAR FOR
FAMILY WHO FACED EVICTION, DEBT

FROM page one

my hand of gratitude, for the many gifts that you gave my kids
for the holiday — one that they have not had in years. I really
appreciate it from the depths of my heart.”

Although they had been served an eviction notice
for January 4, an anonymous donor paid more than
$4,000 to clear the overdue rent accrued at the fami-
ly’s home in New Hope Road, Joan's Heights. The
good deed will allow the family to remain there as
efforts continue to build them a new home.

Mrs Thurston, 38, was diagnosed with breast cancer

early last year.

In November, her husband Peter, 42, was diagnosed .
with Hodgkins Lymphoma, another form of cancer
that affects the immune system. |

Although she has remained positive throughout
their ordeal, Peter’s diagnosis was devastating for
Consuela because he was to be the sole guardian of

their children — should her treatment be unsuccessful.

The couple have two boys and three girls, aged 10,
nine, eight, six and two. Mrs Thurston had two daugh-
ters before her marriage, they are now aged 16 and 19.

Mr Thurston, a self-employed mason, became the
family’s sole earner after Mrs Thurston, a Solomon's
Super Centre employee for more than 15 wears, began
her radiation treatment.

After he was diagnosed, and subsequently hospital-
ized, the family buckled under the pressure of living
expenses and growing medical bills. Although she is
no longer on medical leave, Mrs Thurston was
reduced to half days as she recovers from chemo
treatments.

After two months, it is still unclear when Mr
Thurston will be able to leave. the hospital and reunite
with his family.

Now the sole care-giver of their six children, Mrs
Thurston said she finds the strength to keep going
through prayer and staunch faith.

After learning of the Thurston's unfortunate situa-
tion, a community-led initiative was launched to con-.
struct a home using building plans the family had
approved but were financially unable to build.

Mrs Thurston added: “All the people that donated
money, special thanks is extended to you, for you
don’t know how much help it was and still is for me
and my family. I appreciate the hands that will be
helping us get the one thing that my heart so desires

‘and that’s a home for me and my family.”

The joint effort by Miracle Revival Fellowship pas-
tor Howard Stuart, and widespread community mem-
bers, is spearheaded by Dwight Armbrister, the host
of ZNS morning show Inspiration Station on 107.9FM.

Anyone who can provide any type of assistance to
the Thurstons can contact Consuela at 544-3444 or
donate to the Scotiabank branch on East Street and
Soldier Road, account number 19303. An account has
been set up at FYP Builder's Mall, Wulff Road, to
fund necessary construction materials in the name of
Peter or Consuela Thurston.

NEIL DARLING AND KATARO THOMAS...

TWO CHARGED WITH HOUSEBREAKING,
STEALING AND CAUSING DAMAGE

FREEPORT: Two men charged with housebreaking, stealing
and causing damage appeared in court yesterday.

Neil Darling, 20, of Caravel Beach, and Kataro Thomas, 21, of
Fiddler’s Green, appeared iri Court One before Magistrate Deb-
bye Ferguson.

Both pleaded not guilty to the charges. Darling was remanded
to Fox Hill Prison until February 14. Thomas was granted $6,000
bail with surety. Darling also appeared separately in Court Two
before Magistrate Andrew Forbes.

He pleaded not guilty to two counts of housebreaking and
stealing, and was remanded until February 14 for trial.

ASSERTIONS from Philip
'Brave' Davis that government's
deal with Cable & Wireless over
BTC is shrouded in secrecy are
"laughable," said State Finance Min-
ister Zhirvargo Laing.

He noted that Mr Davis repre-

‘sented Bluewater Ventures Ltd —

the group chosen by the former gov-
ernment to purchase 49 per cent of
BTC in 2007 — as an attorney and
should declare his interests in BTC's
privatisation every time he speaks
publicly on the matter.

"Brave Davis made two points (on
BTC's privatisation) one was that
we were operating in secrecy which
I would find laughable given the
secrecy that surrounded the Blue-

water deal," said the Marco Cit
MP. ;

"Again he was the lawyer for
Bluewater and a government MP so
to hear him talk about secrecy. . .is
untrue. We signed the MOU and
announced it the same day where
no such attempts were made by
themselves (the PLP)."

While as a guest on the radio pro-
gramme “Leading Voices” with
attorney Fayne Thompson, Mr
Davis said it is not too late for the
government to stop its sale of 51 per
cent of BTC to Cable and Wireless
and instead sell those shares to a
Bahamian consortium.

He also questioned the trans-
parency of the deal.

at ‘Brave’ Davis
BIC assertions

"It is never too late. And what
aggravates the debacle is the fact
that this whole arrangement is
shrouded in secrecy.

"For example, my recollection is
that within days of the announce-
ment that a MOU (memorandum of »
understanding) had been entered
into, you had the prime minister say- --
ing that they were not aware of any-
thing happening, and you had Min-
ister Zhivargo Laing saying he was *
not aware of anything happening.
Then, out of the blue, here comes
Cable and Wireless. So the question
is: Where did it start? When did it
start? And how did Cable and Wire-
less get to the table?" Mr Davis
asked.

withdrew his offer to

Panel: Giant oil spill yore
could happen again

DINA CAPPIELLO,
Associated Press
HARRY R. WEBER,
Associated Press
WASHINGTON

Decisions intended to save time and
money created an unreasonable amount
of risk that triggered the largest offshore oil
spill in U.S. history, a disaster that could
happen again without significant reforms by
industry and government, the presidential
panel investigating the BP blowout con-
cluded Wednesday.

The commission findings — the result
of a probe requested by President Barack
Obama after the April 20 rig explosion —
described systemic problems within the off-
shore energy industry and government reg-
ulators who oversee it.

Poor decisions led to technical problems

that the commission, and inquires by BP’

and Congress, have identified as con-
tributing to the accident that killed 11 peo-
ple and led to more than 200 million gallons
of oil spewing from BP's well a mile
beneath the Gulf of Mexico.

BP, Halliburton and Transocean, the
three key companies involved with the well

and the rig that exploded, each made indi- '

vidual decisions that increased risks of a
blowout but saved significant time or mon-
ey.

But ultimately, the Deepwater Horizon
disaster came down to a single failure, the
panel says — management. When deci-
sions were made, no one was considering
the risk they were taking.

In one example cited by the commission,
a BP request to set an "unusually deep
cement plug" was approved by the then-
Minerals Management Service in 90 min-
utes. That decision is one of the nine tech-
nical and engineering calls the commission
says increased the risk of a blowout.

"The blowout was not the product of a
series of abberational decisions made by a
rogue industry or government officials that
could not have been anticipated or expect-
ed to occur again. Rather, the root causes

are systemic, and absent significant reform ~

in both industry practices and government
policies, might well recur," the commission
concluded in a 48-page excerpt of its final
report, obtained by The Associated Press.
A final report is due to the president Jan.

ments. "The agency has taken unprece-
dented steps and will continue to make the
changes necessary to restore the Ameri-
can people's confidence in the safety and
‘environmental soundness of oil and gas
drilling and production on the Outer Con-
tinental Shelf, while balancing our nation's
important energy needs," Barkoff said in a
statement. \ :

BP PLC in a statement issued Wednes-
day said the report, like its own investiga-
tion, found the accident was the result of

multiple causes, involving multiple com- _

panies, but the company was working with
regulators "to ensure the lessons learned
from Macondo lead to improvements in
operations and contractor services in deep-
water drilling."

Transocean Ltd., which owned the rig
being leased by BP to perform the drilling,
said in response to the commission's find-
ings that the "the procedures being con-
ducted in the final hours were crafted and
directed by BP engineers and approved in
advance by federal regulators."

Halliburton Co., the cement contractor
on the well, also said it acted at the direc-
tion of BP and was "fully indemnified by
BP. nn.

The panel underscores its central con-
clusion with a quote from an e-mail written

"But, who cares, it's done, end of story,
will probably be fine and we'll get a good
cement job," Cocales wrote, after he dis-
agreed with BP's decision to use fewer cen-
tralizers than recommended. Centralizers
are used to center the pipe to ensure a
good cement job. The cement failed at the
bottom of the Macondo well, allowing oil
and gas to enter it, according to investiga-
tions. :

The suggestion that the BP disaster may

not be an isolated incident runs counter to

assurances. by the oil industry, which has
worked hard to portray a accident as a
rare occurrence.

"This clearly was a rare incident," the .

president of the American Petroleum Insti-
tute, Jack Gerard, said Tuesday when his
organization published a new report urging
Congress and the Obama administration
to open more areas to oil and gas drilling.

Outside experts in technological disasters
were split by the report's excerpt. They
lauded the commission's focus on organi-
zational and managerial failures instead of
blaming the rig workers. But they were
divided whether the panel went far enough
in criticizing the companies for taking time-

‘and money-saving shortcuts.

Cleric who fought
the US returns to
[pag from exile

QASSIM ABDUL-ZAHRA,

NAJAF, Iraq

Radical Shiite cleric Muqtada
al-Sadr, a fierce opponent of
the United States and head of
Iraq's most feared militia, came
home Wednesday after nearly
four years in self-imposed exile
in Iran, welcomed by hundreds
of cheering supporters in a
return that solidifies the rise of
his movement.

Al-Sadr's presence in Iraq
ensures he will be a powerful
voice in Iraqi politics as U.S.
forces leave the country. He left
Iraq in 2007 somewhat as a

. renegade, a firebrand populist
whose militiamen battled
American troops and Iraqi
forces. He returns a more legit-
imized figure, leading an orga-
nized political movement that is
a vital partner in the new gov-
ernment of Prime Minister
Nouri al-Maliki.

Al-Sadr can wield a bully
pulpit to put strong pressure on
al-Maliki — and is likely to
demand that no American
troops remain beyond their
scheduled final withdrawal date
at the end.of this year. His
return caused trepidation
among many Iraqis, particular-
ly Sunnis who remember vivid-
ly the sectarian killings carried
out by his militia, the Mahdi
‘Army, and believe he is a tool
of Iran. But his supporters were
jubilant. '

"He is our hero. We sacri-

‘ ficed for him. He said 'No' to
the Americans and fought the
Americans, and he is brave,"
said Mohammed Ali, among
the crowds who turned out to
greet al-Sadr in the Shiite holy
city of Najaf, south of Bagh-
dad. Al-Sadr visited the holy
shrine of Imam Ali, revered
among the country's Shiite
majority, wearing a black tur-

ban distinguishing him as one of |

the descendants ‘of Islam's
Prophet Muhammad, and sur-
rounded by a phalanx of body-
guards who attempted to hold
back a throng of supporters.

He also visited the grave of
his father, who was assassinated
during Saddam Hussein's rule,
before heading to his house.
Dozens of black-clad Mahdi
Army members spread out
through the neighborhood sur-
rounding his home.

FACING THE MEDIA: Security guard Alberto Alvarez, right,

- and his attorney Carl Douglas face reporters as they leave the

preliminary hearing for Michael Jackson’s doctor Conrad
Murray, charged in the death of the singer, at Los Angeles
Superior Court Wednesday, Jan. 5, 2011.

LINDA DEUTSCH,
AP Special Correspondent
LOS ANGELES

As Michael Jackson's lifeless body lay on a bed in his
palatial mansion, a bodyguard obeyed a frantic doctor's

‘Instructions to bag up medicine bottles and intravenous

bags and shield the Jackson children from seeing their father
— all before being told to call an ambulance, court testimony
revealed Wednesday.

Alberto Alvarez said he was the first security guard to
reach Jackson's room after word came that something was
wrong. He described a shocking scene.

The King of Pop was on his bed connected to an IV tube
and a urinary catheter. His eyes and mouth were open, and
Dr. Conrad Murray was leaning over him doing one-hand-
ed chest compressions to try to revive him.

Alvarez said he was "frozen" at the sight. ;

"I said, ‘Dr. Murray, what happened?' And he said, 'He
had a reaction. He had a bad reaction,'" Alvarez recalled.

The testimony came during a preliminary hearing to

determine if Murray, the singer's personal physician, will be

tried on a charge of involuntary manslaughter.

Authorities contend Murray gave Jackson a lethal dose of
the powerful anesthetic propofol and other sedatives in the
bedroom of his rented mansion before he died on June 25,
2009.

Deputy District Attorney David Walgren said in his open-
ing statement that Jackson was already dead when Murray
summoned help and tried to conceal his administering «
propofol to the pop star, ordering the bodyguard to colle

‘items before paramedics were called.

Murray was providing J ackson propofol roughly ' six times
a week since being hired as his physician in May 2009, as
Jackson prepared for a series of comeback concerts, Walgren.

‘In other testimony, paramedic Richard Sentiset, who
responded to Jackson's mansion the day he died, said Mur-
ray never mentioned he had given propofol to the singer.
Instead, the doctor said he had given Jackson lorazepam to
help him sleep and indicated the pop star was being treated
for dehydration, Senneff testified.

The paramedic testified that Murray's responses didn't ‘add
up, because the singer looked so pale and-thin that Senneff
thought he was a hospice patient.

Earlier, Alvarez recalled Jackson's children Paris and
Prince walking into the room during the effort to revive
their father.

"Paris screamed, 'Daddy!' and she started to cry. Dr.
Murray said, 'Get them out. Don't Jet them see him like
this,'" the bodyguard said.

Alvarez's voice choked as he described Paris crying and he
took a moment to compose himself.

"I said, ‘children, don't worry, we'll take care of this.'
And I escorted them out and left the door ajar," Alvarez
said. In the courtroom audience, Jackson's mother, Kather-
ine, dabbed at her eyes during the most detailed public
account yet of events surrounding the death of her son.
She came to court with her husband, Joe, and children
Randy, Janet and LaToya. They made no eye contact with
Murray across the courtroom. . ~

They heard Alvarez testify that he helped Murray bag the
medicine and saw an unidentified "white uy substance"
in the bottom of an intravenous bag.

"He just grabbed a handful of bottles, or sales and he
instructed me to put them in a bag," Alvarez testified,
adding that Murray also told him to place an intravenous bag.
into another sack.

"Is it true that 911 had not been called yet?" Walgren
asked, referring to the number for emergency services.

"That's true," Alvarez replied.

After collecting everything and bagging it, Alvarez said,
Murray told him to call an ambulance. The prosecutor then
played a recording of the call.

When the operator said to transfer Jackson to the floor,
Alvarez grabbed Jackson's legs and Murray grabbed his
upper body. He said at that point he noticed the IV in Jack-.
son's leg that had to be removed. Alvarez also saw that
Jackson had the urinary catheter.

Alvarez said Murray then asked him to give Jackson |:
chest compression, while Murray did mouth-to-mouth resus-
citation. Murray said, "'You know this is the first time I
give mouth-to-mouth but I have to do it because he's my
friend,'" Alvarez recalled.

"Did it appear he was breathing," Walgren asked.

"No sir," Alvarez said.

"His eyes and mouth were open?" the prosecutor asked.

"Yes," the witness said. ,

"Did he seem to be alive or dead?" Walgren asked.

"Dead, sir," Alvarez said.

In his opening statement Tuesday, Walgren said Murray
had waited as long as 21 minutes before paramedics were
called and that Jackson had died before help was sum-
moned. The testimony could support the prosecutors' argu-
ment that Murray's actions demonstrated "an extreme devi-

_ation from the standard of care" by administering propofol

without the proper equipment, and also concealing it and
botching efforts to resuscitate the singer.

Murray, a Houston cardiologist, has pleaded not guilty,
and his attorneys have contended he did not give Jackson
anything that should have killed him. Defense lawyers did
not deliver an opening statement at the hearing. Murray
could face up to four years in prison if tried and convicted.

-EGYPTIAN Christians say’

they fear a repeat attack
against their community on
Coptic Christmas Eve Thurs-
day despite authorities plan-
ning heavy security following a
New Year's suicide bombing
of a church in ‘Alexandria that
killed 21.

‘In-response to the threats

have called on Muslims to
form human shields in front of
the:churches on Christmas Eve
as: gesture of solidarity with
country's Coptic Christian
minority, which makes up 10
Beret of Egypt's 80 million
people. .

The bombing of the church,
the worst act of sectarian vio-
lence in the country in a
decade, touched off days of
demonstrations and riots by
the Christians blaming the gov-
ernment for encouraging dis-
crimination and prejudice and
not doing enough to protect
them.

Some Christians have even
said they will skip Thursday's
Christmas Eve services for fear
that there will be more attacks.

er. She kept saying no church-
es this year. I wanted to go but

WASHINGTON

CLAIMING power beneath the
Capitol dome, resurgent Republicans
gained control of the House of Rep-
resentatives on Wednesday as the
112th Congress convened in an era of
economic uncertainty. Dozens of tea
party-backed lawmakers took office
in both houses, eager to cut spending
and reduce government's reach. ~

"The people voted'to end business
as usual, and today we begin carrying
out their instructions," said newly
elected House Speaker John Boehn-
er of Ohio, replacing Democrat Nan-
cy: Pelosi and transformed instantly
into 'the nation's most powerful
Republican in a new era of’ divided
government.

Both the House and the Senate
convened at the constitutionally man-
dated hour of noon for a day of
pageantry and bipartisan flourishes
that contrasted sharply with the
fierceness of the midterm elections
that set the new roll of lawmakers.

In the Senate, where Democrats,

retain control, Majority Leader Har-

‘ry Reid of Nevada selected retired

Republican Sen. Paul Laxalt to
accompany him when he took the
oath for a new term. In the House,
children and grandchildren squirmed
in the laps of their elders, less than
transfixed at thé historic events
unfolding around them.

Republicans hold. a -242- 193 c con-
servatives' majority in the House and
have pledged to challenge President
Barack Obama both with legislation
and with their power to investigate.
The first salvo is expected next week,
a bill to repeal-the sweeping health
care law that Democrats pushed to
passage 10 months ago a have
vowed to defend.

Reid signaled as much, aiid more,
in a speech marking the beginning
of a new two-year Congress. "We
have to do even more to help middle-
class families, to create jobs, to has-
ten our energy independence, to
improve our children's education and
to fix our broken dnmipretion sys-
tem," he said.

Within a few hours of the open-
ing gavel, Democrats unveiled a plan
to limit the ability of Republicans to
filibuster their legislation. No reso-
lution is expected for weeks.

Sixteen blocks away, Obama



HOUSE Speaker John Boehner of Ohio holds up the gavel after receiving it from outgoing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi
of Calif. during the first session of the 112th Congress, on Capitol Hill in Washington, Wednesday, Jan. 5, 2011. (AP)

seemed content to renew old battles
in some areas at the same time he
calls‘for bipartisanship in others. The
White House resubmitted numerous -
appointments left over from 2010 for
Senate confirmation, including four
nominees for federal judgeships
blocked by Republicans last year.
Senate Republicans gained six
seats in last fall's elections, and their
leader, Sen. Mitch McConnell of
Kentucky, said the voters had made .
it clear they "want lawmakers to cut
Washington, tackle the debt, rein in

. government and to help create the

right conditions for private sector
growth."
The day's events unfolded as the

‘ economy, which was the dominant

issue in the elections, showed signs of
increased strength as it emerges from
the worst recession in eight decades.
Even so, unemployment remains at
nearly 10 percent, a historically high--
level, and a problem that politicians

seball Team analyses of the Athletics

of both parties have vowed to tackle.

Additionally, instead of merely
opposing Obama's every proposal,
as they did in 2009 and 2010, House
Republicans in particular must com-
promise with him if they are to show
results in their drive to cut spend-
ing. Yet their eagerness to vote
quickly on repealing the health care

bill is in line with a no-compromise -

- position articulated by the tea party

forces that helped propel many GOP
challengers to victory.

For his part, Obama will be forced
to compromise with Republicans,
much as he did in last month's lame
duck session of Congress when com-
promise legislation was approved to
avert an increase in income taxes,
enact a cut in Social Security taxes
and extend jobless benefits for the
long-term unemployed.

"The big changes today are of

course happening across the-dome," -
’ McConnell said in his remarks, '

‘and

I'd like to welcome the many new
Republican members of Congress
who've come to Washington to
change the way things are done
around here." With that, he walked
across the Capitol to witness Boehn-
er's moment of triumph.

Given to displays of emotion,

Boehner paused to dab at his eyes ,

with a handkerchief as he made his’
way to the speaker's rostrum. His
was an unlikely ascension, capping
two decades in Congress in which
the 61-year-old Ohioan held and then
lost a leadership position when
Republicans were last in a majority.
He re-emerged as leader of a dispir-
ited minority in 2006.

Unlike Newt Gingrich, whose style
bordered on frenetic when he led
Republicans to power in 1994,
Boehner has beén careful to strike a
humbler pose as he works to keep
faith with the anti-government voters
who supported the party's candidates.

US citizen gets 15 years in

prison for 1968 hijacking ©

By LARRY NEUMEISTER
Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) — A
judge sentenced a man who
hijacked a plane from New
York to Cuba four decades
ago to 15 years in prison
Tuesday, citing the fear that
- must have spread among pas-
sengers and the flight crew
when he put a knife to the
throat of a flight attendant
and a gun to her back and
then entered the cockpit.

US District Judge Alvin K
Hellerstein announced the
sentence for 67-year-old Luis
Armando Pena Soltren, who
returned to the United States
from Cuba in October 2009
to face charges of conspiracy
to commit air piracy, inter-
fering with a flight crew and
kidnapping. He pleaded guilty
in March.

"This is a very serious
offense. Sometimes it's
important to have a strict sen-
tence," Hellerstein said as he
rejected pleas for leniency
from a defense lawyer who
insisted Pena Soltren only
joined the hijacking to get to
visit his father in a Cuban
hospital and then lived an
honorable life afterwards.

Soltren listening to proceedings at his hearing on hijacking charges at US Federal Court in New York.

"Hijacking is a frightening

crime," the judge said. "I tried
to imagine how I would feel if
someone, put a knife to my
throat and a gun to my back
and I wonder how many
nightmares would follow."
Pan American Flight 281,
which had 103 passengers and
crew, was traveling from New

York's Kennedy Airport to
Puerto Rico on Nov. 24, 1968
when Pena Soltren rose from
his seat and attacked the
flight attendant before enter-
ing the cockpit. No one was
hurt.

Speaking through a Spanish
translater, Pena Soltren apol-
ogized for the hijacking and

said he wished for forgiveness
from the flight attendant "and
all those people who felt

, threatened by my desperate

attack."

"I'd like to express my
remorse," he said. As he fin-
ished a statement that lasted
several minutes, he began to
cry and slumped into his seat.

On a bench where his wife
and daughter watched the
proceedings, his daughter
dabbed tears from her eyes.

The hijacking was carried
out when Pena Soltren and
at least two co-defendants
brought pistols and large
knives aboard in a baby's dia-
per bag. The pilots were

forced to divert Puerto-Rico ,

bound Pan American Flight
281 from Kennedy Airport to
Havana.

His lawyer, James Neuman,
said Pena Soltren had wanted
to come back since at least
1979 because he was remorse-
ful.

Two of the men were

_ arrested in the mid-1970s and

pleaded guilty to their roles
in the skyjacking. One co-
defendant ended up serving
7 years in prison while the
other served 4 years.

Another man, who was not
on the flight but was
described as a leader of the
Puerto Rican Movement for
Liberation, was indicted in
the hijacking. He was found
not guilty on all charges.

Neuman argued that Pena
Soltren should serve less time
than the other two because
he had a lesser role.

than two weeks of protests
over unemployment that were
sparked when a young man
set himself on fire, in despair
after police confiscated the
fruits and vegetables he sold
without a permit. The unrest
has led to three deaths.

The latest protests broke
out in Thala, 250 kilometers
(150 miles) southwest of the
capital.

As classes resumed after -

winter vacation Monday, hun-
dreds of high school students
and other protesters clashed
with police, who used tear
gas, said a union official who
was present. The man spoke



on condition of anonymity,
fearing problems in a coun-
try where the media is heavi-
ly controlled by the state.
Amid the clashes, demon-

strators set fire to tires and to.

the local ruling party head-
quarters on Monday, the offi-
cial said. The unrest contin-
ued on Tuesday. Several peo-
ple were arrested, and others
were hospitalized with
injuries, the union official
said. The protests shuttered
local schools.

France's LCI television
broadcast video of Thala that
showed packs of shouting
young men roaming the
streets and clouds of smoke
in the air.

Such overt clashes are rare
in Tunisia, a popular tourist
destination on the Mediter-
ranean where the government
brooks little dissent and is
routinely criticized for its
human rights record. Tunisia's
unemployment rate is around
14 percent, a figure believed
much higher in rural areas.

The protests. started on

Bouazizi hada university
degree but no steady work
and sold produce in the street
to earn money for his family
—a story that resonated with
many. Bouazizi is still hospi-
talized.

In one protest, police
opened fire, killing two peo-
ple. In another, an unem-
ployed youth electrocuted
himself on an electricity

The opposition says the
government's response has
been inadequate and that the
protests are fueled not only
by unemployment but by a
lack of personal freedoms.

Gunmen kill

3 in Mexico,
including 13-
year-old hoy

By MARK WALSH
Associated Press

MONTERREY, Mexico

(AP) — Gunmen opened fire

on people gathered at a street
corner in the northern city of
Monterrey, killing two adults
and a 13-year-old boy, author-
ities said Tuesday.

The boy's twin brother and
two men were wounded in the
attack Monday night, the
Nuevo Leon state attorney
general's office said.

Authorities had no imme-

iate suspects. While the
motive was unclear, Mexican
drug cartels have recruiting
younger and younger mem-
bers.

The government has
increasingly detained youths
under 18 for drug-related
crimes. Last month, authori-
ties arrested a 14-year-old boy
who they alleged worked as
an assassin for a drug gang in
central Mexico.

Monterrey, Mexico's third-.
largest city, has been besieged
by fighting between.the Gulf,
cartel and the Zetas drug
gang.

In Apodaca, another town.
in Nuevo Leon state, a shoot-
ing broke out Monday night
between marines and sus-
pected cartel gunmen.

One marine and one sus-
pect were injured, though not
seriously, the Mexican navy
said in a statement. Five sus-
pected members of the Zetas
were arrested, including a
minor, it said.

A spokeswoman for the
town government said elec-
tricity and telephone service
went down for three hours
during the shootout, though
the cause was unclear. Navy
officials said they had no
information on that.

Gunmen used vehicles to
block five roads in Apodaca
— acommon cartel tactic to
impede movement of govern- .
ment security forces —
according to the town spokes-
woman, who spoke on condi-
tion of anonymity.

Sudoku is a number-placing puzzle based on a 9x9 grid with
‘several given numbers. The object is to place the numbers
1 to 9 in the empty squares so the each row, each column
and each 3x3 box contains the same.number only once.
The difficulty level of the Conceptis Sudoku increases from
Monday to Sunday



Best described as a number crossword, the task in Kakuro is
to fill all of the empty squares, using numbers 1 to 9, so the
sum of each horizontal block equals the number to its left,
and the sum of each vertical block equals the number on its
top. No number may be used in the same block more than

. once. The difficulty level of the Conceptis Kakuro increases
from Monday to Sunday. :

ogy began

as part of
our need to solve problems.
Digital imaging was devel-
oped in the 1960s and 1970s,
and it is through the art of
building upon previous gen-
erations that we continue to
advance in technology. This
idea is linked to the concept
of a Digital Age or Digital
Revolution, and carries the
ramifications of a shift from
traditional industry to an

economy based on the -

manipulation of informa-
tion, which has allowed

tapid global communica-

tions and networking to

‘shape modern society.

Digital describes elec-
tronic technology that gen-

erates, stores and processes

data in two states: positive
and non-positive.

Thus, data transmitted or
stored with digital technolo-
gy is expressed as a string of
‘0's’ and ‘1's’.

Each of these digits is
referred to as a bit (and a
string of bits that a comput-
er can address individually is
a byte). Bit is a binary digit:
0 or 1, and a byte is made
up of 8 bits.

Digital- recording has
many benefits over analog

recording, as digital files can .

be copied as many times as
you wish with no loss in
quality. They can be burned
to an audio CD or shared
via the Internet.

In its smallest form, digital
art is normally created on.a
computer in digital form,

and can be purely computer- _

generated by fractals and
algorithmic art. In-an
expanded sense, ‘digital art’
is a term applied to contem-
porary skill that uses the

methods of mass production

. or media.

Computers: They are dig-
ital as they consist of dis-
crete units called bits that
are either on or off. Never-
theless, by combining many
bits, computers simulate
(reproduce) analog events,
and this is what computer
science is all about.

By and large, computer
imaging is often called digi-
tal imaging, and can be
stored as bit-mapped
images. These bit-mapped

‘images are translated into

pixels (for display screens)
or ink dots (for printers).
Likewise, optical scanners
and fax machines work by
transforming text or pictures
on paper into bit maps.

Moreover, digital tech- .

nology is primarily used with
a media such as satellite and
fibre optic transmission. For
example, a modem is used
to convert digital informa-
tion in your computer te
analog signals for your
phone line, and converts
analog phone signals to dig-

ital information Tor your

computer.

Photography: Pho-
tographs in newspapers, for
instance, consist of an array
of dots that are either black
or white.

From afar, the viewer



GLOBAL KNOWLEOGE «

BASTIAN



does not see the dots. (the
digital form), but only lines
and shadings that appear to
be continuous and make up
an image.

Once a photograph is dis-

played in digital format, you

can apply a wide variety of
special effects using an
image -enhancing software:
The more bits used to rep-

_resent a dot, extra colours

and shades of grey are
known as the resolution,
which determines how
sharply the image is repre-
sented.:

Interestingly, one of the
biggest pluses for digital

photography is that it is .

inexpensive and fast trans-
formation, as there is no film
processing.

With digital cameras there
is almost no limit to what
can be done with the best
intentions.

But the big question is
when does the pursuit of
aesthetics violate our ethics?

_It is evident that changes
can be made to images that
are undetectable, so much
so that photographs should
no longer be allowed as evi-
dence in the courts of law.

Analog: As we all know,

the opposite of digital is ana-
log ,and broadcast and
phone transmission has con-
ventionally used analog

’ technology.

A typical analog device is
a clock in which the hands

move continuously around —

the face.
In contrast, a digital clock
is capable of representing

only a finite (fixed) number

- of times (every tenth of a

second).

Music: Music itself exists

‘in an analog form as waves

in the air, but these sounds

_ are then translated into a

digital form that can be
encoded on to a disk. For
example, when a compact

Minister:
‘No issue’
on Business



ZHIVARGO LAING

By ALISON LOWE
Business Reporter
alowe@tribunemedia.net

The Minister of State for Finance said there is “no issue”

that he can see in response to claims that the Ministry of }
Finance may have “changed the terms of the 2010 Business : |
License” by requiring companies to register under the new :

Business License Act a month before their 2010 license :-

becomes invalid.

In an e-mail sent to this newspaper, a former Bahamas :
Institute of Chartered Accountants (BICA) president said :
he was concerned that the new Business License Act calls for :
all business owners to register their companies under the Act :

by March 31, 2011.

This is because while the 2010 licenses “expire” on Decem-
ber 31, 2010, they remain “valid” until April 30, 2011, - a :
month later than the compliance date under the new Act, :

said the accountant.

The new Business License Act came into effect on Janu-
ary 1, 2011, and is intended to simplify doing business in The :

Bahamas.

All business people have been asked to bring their Buii- :
nesses into compliance with the requirements of the Act, :
submitting an application form - which is available online - :
and paying the taxes necessary, by March 31, 2011, or else

tisk being placed on a list of non-compliant businesses.

In response to the point raised with Tribune Business, :
Zhivargo Laing said he “couldn’t appreciate the weight of :

it’.

when it becomes due within a year.

“There’s no deprivation in terms of your ability to oper-.
ate and there’s no fee assessed to you because the taxes are :
due at a later point, and it’s only 30 days (difference),” said :

the Minister.

' Mr Laing said businesses “do not lose a month of grace fo

period” but rather gain.

“For a person in business this is a one-time affair in terms :
of registering, and we are doing away under the new Act }
with annual registering for you as part of the process of :
simplification. So a person doesn’t need a grace period any- :

more because you don’t need to renew again,” he said. °

Hutchison Whampoa was

? recently recognised by Our
: Lucaya General Manager,
? Michael Weber, for continuing
: to be “very accommodating”
towards the hotel property, pro-
? viding funds when there are
: shortfalls.

“We give them a lot of cred-

: jt;” said Mr Weber in Decem-
? ber, as he indicated to this
? newspaper that Christmas hotel
? bookings were not as buoyant
: as had been anticipated - at a
i little over 50 per cent for the
? week between Christmas and

new year.
Meanwhile, the head of the

: union-representing workers at

Licence query

: raised by Hutchison Whampoa
‘t during his October meeting
: with them in China.

the Our Lucaya Beach and
Golf Resort has received a
memo from the Prime Minis-
ter outlining a number of
labour-related “concerns”

Nicole Martin, president of

? the Bahamas Hotel, Catering
? and Allied Workers Union
i (BHCAWU), said she received
: a document from the Prime
: Minister’s Office on Tuesday
? that outlined “some concerns
? raised by the (hotel) owners”
? which she said the. union had
? not previously been aware of.

“T’m in the process of looking

i them over. Clearly [the Prime
i Minister] would’ve had more
? information as far as things

going on at property and things
concerning [the owners]. Based
on what he sent to me as of yes-
terday they are things my
administration and the man-
agement team at Our Lucaya
have never even discussed, so I
am actually trying to wrap my
head around what the real
issues are,” said Ms Martin,
who declined to go into detail
on the issues raised.

China

During last year’s trip to Chi-
na, Prime Minister Hubert
Ingraham met with representa-
tives of Hutchison Whampoa.

In an interview with The Tri-

bune while in China, Mr Ingra- .

ham said he and the executives
“discussed Our Lucaya exten-
sively”, and added occupancy
levels at the hotel appeared bet-
ter in recent times.

However, he added that “‘it is
our hope that (the owners) will
have a harmonious relationship
with the union because there
are concerns about some of the
issues that are coming up”. Mr
Ingraham said he intended to
“have some discussions with the
union about the hotel proper-
ty”.

Ms Martin told Tribune Busi- —

ness that prior to the Prime
Minister’s memo, the only mat-

OUR LUCAYA SALE REPORTS DENIED

ter her organisation had been
having discussions with the
management of Our Lucaya
about concerned “unpaid
increases” and non-payment of
contributions by the hotel to

* the worker’s pension fund:

The BHCAWU president
said management have so far
said they “simply cannot pay”
the increases of 2.5 per cent of a
worker’s base salary that were
due on April 30, 2009, 3 per
cent on November 1, 2009, and
a further 3 per cent on April
30, 2010.

The same is the case regard-
ing a contribution of 6 per cent

‘ of the base pay of each bar-

gaining unit worker into the
pension fund, which was due
on November 1, 2009.

“We have been talking about
this ever since my administra-

tion’s first election last year but
there’s been no progress,” said
Ms Martin.

In response to the position
that, given the current eco-
nomic climate in Grand
Bahama, it might be more
appropriate to hold off on push-
ing the issue of salary increases,
Ms Martin said she recognises
“there is that sentiment”, but
the union did not appreciate
the “lack of negotiation” over
the matter.

“We believe they should be
able to pay something, to come
to some compromise over what
they pay those people,” said the
union president.

Ms Martin went on to con-
firm that the Minister of
Labour will conduct a poll at
the hotel later this month at the
request of some members of
the Our Lucaya bargaining unit
wto determine whether the
workers will continue to be rep-
resented by the BHCAWU or
another union

FINANCIAL SECTOR ‘HINDERED’ BY TELECOMS WOES

_ FROM page 1B

focus be on the creation of
competition via the parallel

. industry liberalisation, Reece

Chipman told Tribune Business
that:obtaining the right out-

‘come in both cases was “very

important” to the financial sec-
tor.

“The financial services indus-
try, toa great degree, has been

», hindered by the lack of com-
* petitive telecommunications,”

the BICA president said. “We
are still having to train abroad,
have. information systems
checked from head office
instead of remote systems.
“As for the cost factor, we’re
hoping there’s some cost reduc-
tion. Most of our financial busi-
ness is offshore, and even in the
commercial banking sector, we
have concerns over efficient,

adequate telecommunications

and the cost of telecommuni-
cations. The cost is such a big
factor, and we’re hoping with
the reduced cost and the pri-
vatisation, that it will have an

_impact on our competitive-

ness.”

Mr Chipman said cheaper,
more efficient telecommunica-
tions. could also play a role in
helping the Bahamas to expand

' its knowledge base and market

share in financial services.
“We have the qualifications,
we have quite an educated

financial services sector. But at
this point, we’re not as com-
petitive as Cayman or Barba-
dos,” Mr Chipr:.an said.

“The knowledge is here, but
somehow we’re not enhancing
or sharing that knowledge.
With telecommunications lib-
eralisation, we can meet those
opportunities that could be
available to enhance knowledge
and share it.”

Mr Chipman urged that com-
petition “remains the focus” in
telecommunications industry
liberalisation in the Bahamas,
since it was this that would
“maximise” the benefits from
BTC’s privatisation and allow-
ing competitors in.

Arguing that the Utilities
Regulation & Competition
Authority (URCA) should see
its role as “a catalyst for all
aspects of competition”, includ-
ing monitoring and managing
the process to ensure there was
transparency, discipline and fair
play in the market, Mr Chip-
man also backed the regulator’s
stance on accounting separa-
tion.

.URCA is already requiring
that BTC and Cable Bahamas,
the two operators designated
with Significant Market Power
(SMP), implement account sep-
aration, dividing their busi-
nesses into their different busi-
ness segments so that. all busi-
ness revenue and profit streams
are transparent.

This is designed to prevent

SMP operators, in both the
wholesale and retail markets,
from cross-subsidising unprof-
itable business ‘segments
through profitable ones, or
from introducing costs in areas
such as interconnection that are
prohibitively high and stifle the
competition at birth.

And the BICA president also.
backed the Government’s deci-

sion to sell a 51 percent stake _

in BTC, as opposed to 49 per
cent. “I:am definitely on the 51
per cent side, and more so for
me to take the Government out
of the business of telecommu-
nications,” Mr Chipman said.
“If you’re going to privatise,
I believe in full privatisation. I
believe more opportunities
come from a socio-entrepre-
neurial or more merit-based
organisation than a socio-polit-
ical organisation. Persons have
more opportunity, because
decisions are not based on the

- political divide but business

functions. . /

“The-51 per cent takes the
socio-political bureaucracy out
of the decision-making, and
that I can appreciate.” '

The BICA president said
telecommunications liberalisa-
tion would also create oppor-
tunities for Bahamian accoun-

- tants in terms of providing busi-

ness advisory and audit services
to the numerous small busi-
nesses likely to be created by
the new market opportunities,
or spin-offs from these.

In his last report to the
Bahamian Supreme Court,
Mr Gomez said CLICO
(Bahamas) still faces a

‘$14.202 million deficit, and

saw a further 3,000 policies
lapse or surrender during the
five months to June 30, 2010,
with policyholders "becom-
ing uncomfortable" with the
company's condition and "los-
ing confidence" due to the
time taken to sell their poli-
cies to another carrier.

He reiterated that the insol-
vent insurer's assets, worth
some $45.885 million, were
dwarfed by its $60.086 million
in liabilities, leaving Bahami-
an creditors looking at shar-

ing in an estimated $14.201

million in losses as at June 30,
2010.

As a June 30, 2010, Mr
Gomez's report showed CLI-
CO (Bahamas) as still having
16,954 policijes in force and in
good standing - covering life
and health insurance, annu-
ities and pensions - with a.col-
lective $1.693 billion sum

Delayed opening costs Robin Hood ‘millions of dollars’

FROM page 1B

The expansive Bahamas-based retailer had
hoped to open in time to catch the Christmas
and New Year shopping season, a period that
often accounts for up to 40-50 per cent of some
stores’ annual sales revenues, but Tribune
Business sources suggested the. opening was
delayed by the need to comply with require-
ments stipulated by the Ministry of Works and
other government agencies. —

Sandy Schaefer, Robin Hood’s principal aie
president, declined to comment on the pre-
cise reasons for the delayed opening of the

retailer’s second store, but said: “Pm very

hopeful we’ll get it open very soon.’

Focusing on the positive, he added of the
delay: “It’s actually, going to make us stronger,
and give us more time to get the place ready.

It’s going to be the nicest shopping experi. .

ence on the eastern side of the island.”

Yet missing out on the Christmas shopping
season has prevented Robin Hood from get-
ting a significant immediate return on its Prince
Charles investment, and building up a sub-
stantial cash pile to help it through the post-
Christmas months that are traditionally a slow
time for retail sales.

When asked about how much the delayed
opening had cost Robin Hood, Mr Schaefer
acknowledged that the sum involved was “sub-

_ Stantial”, and “certainly in the seven figures”,

meaning millions of dollars.

He added that Robin Hood was now plan-
ning to have a “grand opening” for its Prince
Charles Drive store on January 21, accompa-
nied by various “festivities and specials”, after
which it would focus on the planned 44,000
square foot, two-storey retail complex, which

will be situated in front of the store.

“I hope to have that open in August, and
that it will be up and ready in six months’
time,” Mr Schaefer said. Construction was set

to start in February 2011, he added, with ten-

ants set to include a full-service Scotiabank
branch and a Sbarro’s restaurant.





Robin Hood was talking to another 15 :
potential tenants, Mr Schaefer said, although

no leases had been signed yet as the retailer :
was focused in the short-term on opening the :

new store and the Christmas season at its exist- :

ing Tonique Williams-Darling Highway store. }

He acknowledged that the Christmas and :
New Year period had been “disappointing”

for Robin Hood’s existing outlet, with con- :

sumers eschewing purchases of ‘big ticket’ :
items, such as appliances and electronics, in } define what we think is - ,,
favor of less costly items, while others hung on : good and bad, while aes-

: thetics deal with the nature
? of beauty, art, taste and

i things that are pleasing i in

? appearance. ti

for the post-Christmas sales.

Winter

“Tt’s been a rough winter for everybody,” Mr

Schaefer told Tribune Business. “We’re hope- :

ful the Baha Mar thing will kick-off very soon. : taining how much is too
Christmas was disappointing for us; it was : much and how tatie tons
a disappointing season. For us, the year usually : ;

seems to end up well, and once we open the }

store on Prince Charles we will have the best }
year ever, as we will have two stores going }

full steam. The economy should pick.up.soon, }

and once that happens it will start to have a | YOU crossed the liné from |

documentary art form into

positive effect.”

Describing Bahamian consumers as “infi- :

nitely more conservative”, Mr Schaefer said ;

purchases of items such as major appliances }
and electronics were where “some of the :
biggest decreases” in spending were seen dur- :
ing Christmas. i
~ “People have less money to spend, and are :
_becoming better buyers and shoppers,” the }
Robin Hood chief said. “People are waiting for :
the after-Christmas sales before they buy for }
Christmas. And families with, say five chil- :
dren, they bought five small toys this year }

instead of five large toys last year.’

Mr Schaefer said that on customer counts,
Robin Hood’s Tonique Williams-Darling }
Highway store was “very similar to last year;
within 5 per cent. It’s just the spending habits.
This is something that is reflected in the buy
ing habits worldwide”.
