BISHOP Randy Fraser ©

was back on the witness

stand yesterday where

prosecutors charged that
his claim of having sex with
his wife in his church office
was “made-up.”

While under. cross-exam-
ination yesterday the pros-
ecution sought to highlight
inconsistencies in Fraser’s
testimony. Prosecutors
have accused Fraser, 53, of
abusin§ his position of trust

' by having a sexual rela-
’ tionship with a 16-year-old

. girl he had agreed to coun-

sel. It is alleged that Fraser,

pastor of Pilgrim Baptist
Temple, St James Road,
had a sexual relationship
with the girl between July

2005 and February:2006. If -

convicted, he faces seven

Fraser
affirmed his previous tes-
timony that semen found

on the carpet of his church

office came as a result of

NDP CANDIDATE
HITS OUT AT WSC
OVER ‘BROWN,
RUSTY WATER’

By CELESTE NIXON
Tribune Staff Reporter

cnixon@tribunemedia.net

A NATIONAL Devel-
opment Party candidate is
hitting out at the Water
and Sewerage Corpora-
tion for supplying
Seabreeze residents with
brown, rusty water-—
which he claims could lead
to health complications.

Lindon Nairn, deputy
leader of the NDP and the
party’s candidate for
Seabreeze, issued a state-
ment yesterday claiming
residents have had "non-
potable water pumped
into their homes by the
Water and Sewerage Cor-
poration for more than a
decade".

Mr Nairn, producing a
sample of cloudy brown
water he said was taken _
from a home in the area,
as well as an allegedly
two-day-old water filter,

said: “You can observe the
high rust content of the :

water and the shocking
discolouration of the fil-
ter."
“Weare advised by z a
physician that regular con-
sumption of water con-
taining high rust content
could lead to a number of
health complications,” he
added.

According to Mr Nairn,
households have suffered
tremendous financial loss-
es over the years, as
clothes, dishwashers,
washing machines and |
plumbing fixtures have
been destroyed by the’

. "filthy water."

He called on the gov-
ernment to bring relief to
the residents of Seabreeze
by compensating them for
the loss of appliances and
clothing and replacing the
water.mains.in.the area.as.
aE ag possible.

TWO MEN ARE
SHOT DURING:
ARMED ROBBERY

POLICE are investi-

gating the shooting of

two men in an armed
robbery on Monday

‘night.

The victims were
standing outside a
home on Buttonwood
Avenue with two

women when they were: }

approached by two
men in a car at about

10pm. - hed

The culprits shot
both men in the legs
after robbing them of
an undetermined

, amount of cash,

according to police.

The victims were tak-
en to hospital in a pri-
vate vehicle. Both were
reported to be in stable
condition last night.

Less than half an
hour later, police were
called to the scene of
another armed robbery
at the Twilight Bar in
Ridgeland Mall, Robin-
son Road.

Witnesses said two
armed men wearing
hooded jackets — one
grey, the other black
with red stripes —
robbed the-store and
an employee of an
undetermined amount.
of cash and jewellery at
around 10.30pm.

Earlier that day, two
men robbed Rose Cake
and Pastry Supplies on
Baillou Hill Road.

The culprits — one of
whom was armed with
a handgun — burst into
the shop shortly after
2pm.

Fred Mitchell: perceived
split between police, PLP
played role in last election

By NOELLE NICOLLS
Tribune Staff Reporter
nnicolls@tribunemedia.net

A PERCEIVED split
between the Royal Bahamas
Police Force and the Progres-
sive Liberal Party had a role to
play in the outcome of the 2007 -
election, said Fred Mitchell,
opposition spokesman on the
public service.

And, Mr Mitchell accused
the Free National Movement
(FNM). of dipping into its polit-

week to manufacture another
“false dispute” between. the
PLP and the police.

He said the FNM took.
advantage of the “genuine con-
cerns” of the Police Staff Asso-
ciation “for a purpose other
than for what was intended”
and in a way FEMIDISCERE of
times past.

“We saw it in 2007. ois see
where we are today. That is

cern them,”.he said,

Last week the PSA’ asked for
an apology for comments made
by Mr Mitchell about the Secu-

ity and Intelligence Branch

the source,” said Mr Mitchell. _ its confidential reports in the

little pixies that run the FNM’s Dwight Smith, PSA presi-
propaganda store and ought to dent, said equating the inves-
be treated as such.

“This is straight out of the
FNM’s political playbook.
There is no such dispute with
the police. It is a figment of
their vivid and wicked imagi-
nations. The FNM should sim-
ply shut up, butt out and stay
out of what they do not under-

tion that any such thing exists at

the integrity of the force.
When contacted for com-
ment, the head‘officer of SIB
said he did not think “any actu-
al damage” ‘was done by Mr
Mitchell’s comments. :

”

FNM: MITCHELL SHOULD HAVE APOLOGISED T0 POLICE

THE FNM reiterated last night that “rather than responding to
the incoherent ranting and raving,.and self-serving and paranoid

: . comments by Fox Hill MP.Fred Mitchell,” Mr Mitchell should have
apologised to the Police for his attack on the IDICEHY, of the Spe-

cial. Intelligence Branch.:
“Now that he has’ vetiaed to so do,” said the FNM statement,
“the Police Force and Bahamians fully understand that Mr. Mitchell

is standing by his earlier attack on the fine men and women who’

énsure our security on a daily basis. While this is unfortunate,

"this is his choice, a choice that members of the Force will no doubt

remember.”
Last week the Police Association had asked Mr Mitchell to
‘apologise for commerits he had niade about their” Sécurity and

“gossip and trivia.” Police sociation President Dwight Smith,
called Mr Mitchell’s commetits’a § Slur against the integrity of the
force. (See story above).

The FNM thanked the “professionals of the Royal Bahamas

ues of ‘courage, integrity and loyalty’ and for or Together

‘Political operatives’ and ‘criminally-miinded’

_-POLICE Staff Association & deidoat
Dwight Smith during an interview with the

: press after the February 23 demonstration on:
Bay Street urged policiats to stop. politi-
cising issues,

He was defending his Force from a politi-

cian’s criticism of the worth of police reports,
which were used in-another case to decide the
suitability of a person for a high office. Mr
Smith was also smarting under the criticism
of how “over prepared” police were when
they arrived. on Bay Street for the BTC
demonstration. Jt would have been irre-
sponsible — after a union leader had declared
that a “small Egypt” was needed on Bay

* Street to protest the sale of BTC — if police
had not come fully prepared — with its
canine unit and all. The unionist was accused.

_of instigating social unrest,.and'so the police
were ready.

Mr Smith pointed out that the type of
persons he saw among the crowd that day
made it necessary for the police to do their
job to ensure the safety of protesters and
observers. He said the police had difficulty:
with those participating in the protest who
‘had “nothing:to do with BTC,” but were
‘there “advancing political groups.” |

"We saw so many things that were going
on. I, for one, wondered if we were dealing -

. with a BTC situation or if we were dealing
with a political situation. For the life of me I -
‘could not understand what was going on,” Mr
Smith told the press.

The demonstration was said to have been
organised by the Committee to Save BTC,
but PLP members made a strong APPEAR:
ance.

Mr Smith said‘downtown merchants called
to complain about a group of young protest-
ers who were dropped off in the George
Street area. As they walked to the protest,

-merchants claimed. they stopped in store”

after store "causing a disturbance."

- "I walked there personally and saw them.
1 knew some of them and talked to them. I
heard them say, if they did not get paid there
is going to be problems. Thad to encourage
some of them to come out of thé stores. They
had no reason to go in the stores.

"They' were just being disruptive, : said
Mr Smith.

"My view is there were only a handful of
persons there who were really dealing with

BTC. If you were to speak to some of those « :

persons, they did not know why they were

out there. They did not know what they were
out there for. If we were to really do the due
diligence, we'll find a lot of them did not
understand what was going on," he said.

It was suggested that “political operatives”

had paid many persons — some if them!
: referred to by the police as “criminally mind-

ed’ — to demonstrate on Bay Street: As the
late Kendal dsaacs, QC, who refused his par-
ty’s request to lead.a demonstration, pointed
out, he would have been responsible for any
breach of the peace caused. by the demon-
strators. These “political operatives,” and

~ Rodney Moncur; who has.called for 10,000

demonstrators, should reconsider the:con-
sequences. And to help them understand

. their responsibilities the police should |

enforce the law — especially against persons

who would have paid these Gemous ators to ,

, create the disturbance. _ e
How can so-called responsible persons

encourage the~“criminally-minded” to create ©

social unrest and then demand that they obey

the law when their services are no longer -

néeded? We expect the police to protect res-
idents against these very same people. How-

- ever, when caught by the law they will look to

their political Paymaster: to save them from
prison.

Reminds us of the PLP. diection when
drug dealers were desperate that the PLP

. be returned to power. Rightly or wrongly,
true or false, there was the perception that .
~. this party was their ‘guardian. The call was

passed down the line — especially in
Eleuthera — to get the fast boats ready. As
soon as the PLP were elected the operators

expected to.be back in business. Some were |
so bold that they talked openly to our |

reporters, calling names of their political pro;
tectors.

We recall the talks that Magistrate Her-
cules and the late Sir Etienne Dupuch had
many years ago when they took their morn-
ing constitutional on Cayman’s Five Mile
Beach. Magistrate Hercules, a tough, no non-
sense magistrate, left the Bahamas after sev-
eral years here. His complaint was about the

_ political interference he had to suffer when

certain “criminally-minded persons”

appeared before him. It was more than he»

could take. 4

If we expect the police to be effective in
controlling crime, then this culture of: using
persons on the wrong side of the law-when it
suits. certain purposes, must end.

Distortion and
misinformation

EDITOR, The Tribune.

I read with amusement and
astonishment the article under
the headline Sir Cecil’s FNM,

. by Philip Galanis on page 4 of

the March 7th edition of The
Nassau Guardian, with amuse-
ment because of the number of
distortions, misinformation,
half-truths and outright lies,
astonishment, because with a
little investigative initiative, the
writer could have obtained the
correct information from a
number of sources, including
the clerk of the House of par-
liament. Let me start by inform-
ing Mr Galanis that Cecil and
the other dissidents, known as
and called the Dissident Eight,
never formed anything and the

. United Bahamian Party was

never disbanded. The UBP was
the official opposition in Par-
liament during the sitting in
parliament of the Dissident

Eight as members of the Pin-

dling-led PLP administration
and after their expulsion. You
see, Mr Galanis, they never quit
the PLP they were expelled
from the party after they con-
tested the 1971 by-election in

. Central Andros to fill the

vacancy created by the demise
of the late Clarence Bain.
“The FNM did NOT have
anything to do with the laying
of a foundation for the two-par-
ty governing process,.in fact
when the merger of the UBP
and the Free PLP-came about
there were three parties in exis-
tence, the PLP, UBP and
Labour and two that had dis-
banded — The Bahamas Demo-

cratic League, headed by the

late Sir Etienne Dupuch, and
the NDP headed: by. Paul

Adderley, that was the sole ©

domain.of the.PLP and the
UBP. The Free PLP was'never

a political party it was simply ©
* a grouping of politicians fol-

lowing a leader, nothing more
nothing less.

You, Mr. Galanis, refer to
them as freedom fighters, who
were they fighting and for

. whose freedom, may I ask?

You said that they had already
achieved Majority rule, please

. Mr Galanis, tell me on which

planet have you been all these
years, it could not have been
this planet called and. known as
Earth, for if it was, you would

' most certainly have known that
that animal known as Majority .

Rule came into existence

‘through the combined action

of the late Sir Randol Fawkes
and Alvin Braynen. The object
of Cecil and his merry band of

dissidents, was to defeat Pin- -

dling and the PLP, not freedom
for themselves or anyone else.
In order to do. this, they saw
the opportunity of getting into

bed with a party that they were-

constantly denigrating and ver-
bally abusing for years, as a
means to defeat their nemesis,
Lynden Oscar Pindling, hence
their efforts to distort the true

circumstances surrounding the

merger of the two entities. Pol-

itics‘'do make strange bed fel- .
_ lows, Mr Galanis, don’t you

agree?

‘You, Mr Galanis, like many
of your ilk are overlooking or
deliberately avoiding coming to
grips with the real issue. of the
Whitfield led confrontation
with the. PLP’s leadership, it
was simply a power play, noth-
ing more nothing less . It was all
about taking control of the par-

ty; but for all of Cecil’s compe-.

LETTERS

letters@tribunemedia.net



tency, he was always naive and
grossly underestimated his cun-
ning and crafty opponent. The
whole scenario was about greed
for political power and person-
al wealth. I am sure that you
Mr Galanis do not believe all
that hog wash spewed from the
lips of politicians and union
officials over the decades about
fighting for the people’s free-
dom and rights. The only rights
that they ever fought for were
theirs, their cronies and rela-
tives. Do not take my word for
that, just take a candid look
around you and see the cir-
cumstances of successful politi-
cians, union leaders, their rela-
tives, friends and cronies and

you will see for whom the fight -

, was all about.
When we are writing for the

- benefit of younger generations

and the electorate we should
‘try to be as accurate as human-

~ ly possible and avoid guessing

or publishing information with-
out assuring its accuracy. The
FNM came about not as a
vision of Cecil Wallace-Whit-

field and the dissidents, for I -

am sure that if he had ever got-

ten around to forming a party ~

. out of that group he would have
kept the moniker that he first
gave the group (Free PLP). °

The merger of the then’

opposition party in parliament
and the political grouping called
the Free PLP, came about from
a suggestion that I made to

* Cecikin the Lighthouse Club in

Central Andros after the polls
were closed and the votes
counted on the night of the by
Election in 1971. The whole
scenario is set out in my Mem-
oirs that will hit the market in
midsummer, where that and
scores of lies, half-truths and
misinformation are laid bare
for the world to see. After the
merger was effected, Cecil was
chosen leader and I co-ordina-

tor unanimously and given the »

task of coining.a name and slo-
gan ‘for the new entity and get-

' ting it in shape to fight the

upcoming 1972 general elec-
tions.
Iam convinced that the

majority of the dissidents were ~

_embarrassed by their. associa-
tion with the UBP, but saw it as
‘their only hope of survival in
the arena of Bahamian politics.
Needless to say that Pindling
wasted no time in adding to
their, dissidents, label of “trai-

tors” a second one of “Uncle °

Toms.” Given the reverse racial

atmosphere in the country at:

‘the time and the relentless cam-

paign waged by Pindling and «

the PLP at the. time, the
chances of any one of the eight
winning a seat in a black belt
area was less than a snowball
’ lasting in hell. They came to
_ the merger with the intention of

securing nominations in UBP.

safe areas; but exposed their
intentions prematurely and had
their efforts thwarted by me,
hence. their campaign efforts
for my expulsion from the par-
ty, that scenario is also fully
explained in my Memoirs.
We, Cecil and I, repaired to
a restaurant on George Street,

Finlayson. He, Cecil, coined the

and I coined the phrase “all
together,” the name lasted fora -
while before it was changed to
the Free National Democratic
Movement, as far as being all
together, Humpty Dumpty who

‘fell off the wall was.a joke to

what we looked like in a few
months time. Cecil can be given
credit for the tenacious hold
that he kept on the name; but
the members deserted him and
formed three more parties
before ending up back under
the umbrella of the FNM, they
were the BDP headed by Hen-
ty Bostwick, The SDP headed
by Norman Solomon and the |
FNDM headed by Kendal

Isaacs thus giving parliament
five different opposition par-
ties in less than five years. You
do not have to believe me Mr:
Galanis, check with the Clerk
of the House. They were 1)
FNM 2) BDP 3) SDP 4)
FNDM and 5) back to FNM.

To answer the question to your
readers, what were the charac-
teristics: of Cecil’s FNM? The
answer is very simple. It was
the same as those that caused
the parting of ways by the eight
from the PLP. It was greed,
backstabbing, dissension and
quest for power. Although
Cecil was the chosen leader, he
enjoyed very little, if any, sup-
port from the parliamentary
group and no loyalty at all. His
statement at a rally in St. Agnes
constituency during the 1972
campaign: “If the FNM wins
the election, persons found vot-
ing in more than one con-’
stituency, I will prosecute their
backsides straight to jail was

~ blamed for the FNM losing the,

election. In my opinion it was
not the cause; but the relent-
less campaign fought by the
PLP. :

No member of the Dissident
Eight dedicated ‘any time or
effort to creating the PLP,
when they came on the scene it

_was already created and in full

swing. H M Taylor, Cyril St.
John Stevenson, William “Bill”
Cartwright who is still alive and’

. forgotten by the party, is lan-

guishing in an old folks home,

‘and others, Had formed that

entity. When Pindling, Cecil
and the rest of the so-called
freedom fighters came along,

. they quickly usurped the lead-

ership of the party from the
founders and set about solidi-
fying themselves in leadership

- positions. When they attempted

it on Pindling in 1965 and 1970,
he beat them to the punch and
sent them into political obscu-
rity for a few decades. Nothing
changed when the FNM was
formed everyone including
Cecil who was a threat was in
some form or the other, taken
out.

Orville Turnquest was the
deputy leader of the NDP and
when Paul Adderley defected
back to the PLP, the party dis-
integrated and he, Turnquest,
became a member of the FNM.
Kendal Isaacs was never asso-
ciated with or. was a member
of any political’ grouping until
he was persuaded to join the

- FNM and given the safe UBP

Montagu seat that was held by
Sir Geoffrey A D Johnstone.
Your article Mr. Galanis is ‘so
riddled with falsities and mis-
information that it makes no
sense when reading it. There
are many persons around you
who can give: you honest
answers ta any questions about
the FNM, its creation and the
persons responsible for its com-

“4 ing into being. Below is a list

of its founding fathers and posi-
tion held at the time.

Chairmin’s review of the unaudited results
For Quarter 1, January 31, 2081

RBC FINCO incurred a net loss of $1,813,097 for the three month period ended January 31, 2011
compared to a loss of $450,967 for the corresponding period last year, Results for the period were
negatively impacted by a 35% increase in provision for credit losses year over year; as the Bank
continues to be challenged by increasing levels of non-performing loans. We continue to encourage
clients to mect with their account manager te ace how best the bank could assist during these difficult

times.

Morigage growth continued fo slow as the loan ‘portfolio experienced modest growth of 4%, primarily
as a result of the weak economic conditions in the bank's markets of New Providence and Grand

Bahama,

The US recovery, which has been slow, has resulted in moderate improvements in the tourism sector
and stable construction activity inthe local economy, However, the median term: outlook remains

- unclear, Management is confident that‘as economic cenditions improve, non-performing loans and
the resulting provisions will. reduce to more historic levels, In this case RBC FINCO is well
positioned for continued ae and profitability. :

As oil prices go up again,
what now for the Bahamas?

By LARRY SMITH



SO HERE we are, two years

after the last oil shock, and-

prices are over $100 per barrel
again, with some forecasters
saying they could pass the 2008
high of $147 a barrel that sent
everyone scrambling to cut
energy costs.

Already we are hearing the

.usual cries for government

relief. And those cries will only
get louder as higher prices filter
through to’gas pumps, electric-
ity meters and store shelves.
But in our case, there is very
little the government can do
beyond providing short-term
consumption credits — and that
comes at a cost to BEC's ‘sol-
vency. .

Worldwide, fossil fuel con-
sumption subsidies amounted
to $312 billion in 2009, com-
pared to government support
for renewables and biofuels of.
$57 billion. A subsidy is any

‘government action that lowers

the cost of fossil fuel energy
production, raises the price
received by energy producers,
or lowers the price paid by con-
sumers.

A recent report by the Inter-
national Energy Agency, the
Organisation for Economic Co-
operation and; Development
and the World Bank points out
that subsidies impose an unsup-
portable fiscal burden on gov-
ernment budgets, encourage
wasteful consumption, exacer-

: bate price volatility by blurring
_ market signals, and undermine
_ the competitiveness of renew-

ables and more efficient energy
technologies.
And this overlooks a num-

_ber of other measures that sup-

port fossil fuel production or
consumption — such as tax
expenditures, under-priced

‘access fo public resources, and
the transfer of risks to govern- -
’ ments via concessional loans or

guarantees. Nor doés it take
account of the social costs of
pollution and environmental
degradation.

In the absence of reform,

-experts-say; spending: on fossil ‘
fuel subsidies.is. likely to. reach. :.
* $600 billion in 2015, or 0.6 per
‘ cent of ‘global gross domestic’

product. By contrast, a com-
plete phase-out of consump-

‘tion-related fossil fuel subsidies

would cut global energy
demand by-5 per cent.

The alternative to fossil fuels
like oil and coal is a range of
new technologies that produce
power from non-polluting
renewable sources like the wind
and the sun. And globally, the
outlook for these technologies
is promising. — with growth
rates that now rival that of ear-
lier technology revolutions like
telephony, computers and the
Internet.

Recently, the researeh’ and

consulting group, Clean Edge,

projected that the market for
wind, biofuels and solar photo-
voltaics, which totalled $140 bil-
lion in 2009 and grew 35.2 per
cent to over $188 billion last
year, will grow to about $350
billion over the next decade.
Current investments in these

‘technologies far surpass what
‘ many thought were possible

just a few years ago:
For the
distributed solar and wind pow-

er technologies are reaching /

cost parity with US wholesale
electricity prices in‘some mar-
kets. By 2020 solar PV.systems
will be cost-competitive in 47
states for residential customers
and more than. 35 states for
commercial customers. And
wind power has ranked near
and often ahead of natural gas
as the leading source of new

. generating capacity in the US.

What will the energy sector

first time in history,



look like a decade fren now?
Clean Edge offers the-fdlowing

. projections in its 2011 research

report:

1. Solar and wind rescurces
will contribute more than a
quarter of electricity getera-

- tion capacity in dozens of US

and global markets. .

2. Explosive growth in he :

electrification of transportatitn,
with millions of EVs on tle
road in the US, China, Japa
and Europe.

3. Compact fluorescent light ..

bulbs (CFLs) will be replaced
by even more efficient solid
state light-emitting diode
(LED) technology.

4, A major drive to create
low-cost, competitive green
buildings that produce more
energy than they consume. |

5. Waste streams will become
a common feedstock for energy.
production.

_6. The integration of natural
gas and'renewable energy will
enable a relatively smooth tran-
sition away from ‘dirty energy
sources.

"Our assessment, 10 years

‘into tracking this sector, is.that

clean energy remains one of the .

strongest and most vital sectors
reshaping the global land-

“scape;" Clean Edge concluded.

_ commercial relations with inde-
pendent power producers.

_ So where does the Bahamas

stand today in all this; as oil -

prices move up again?

Last year, Fichtner, the gov-
ernment's German energy con-
sultants, produced a roadmap
for reform of the Bahamian
energy sector: Topping the list
of recommendations was
amending, the Electricity Act
and passing a new. Renewable
Energy Act.

Besides reserving power.

generation to BEC (for any-
- thing over 250 kilowatts), the
Electricity Act blocks access to

the grid and does not allow for

Fichtner's report recommends
abolishing the bén on third par-
ty generation, proyiding-for grid
access through pover purchase
agreements, and ‘ransferring

responsibility for wate-to-ener-

N

gy initiatives to the Ministry of
the Environment. .

To encourage custoner gen-

eration of electricity using

renewable. technologie: Ficht-

ner recommends a newlaw to
regulate net metering « net.
billing. Either approach vould
let'customers feed excess \lec-
tricity from RE generators nto

from BEC when the RE geniy- .
ation is not sufficient to cover

demand. Excess power woul

be credited to the customer's:
account, and the whole system),
would be monitored by the }
Utilities Regulation & Compe-' \\
tition Authority. 4

- Under net\metering, con-

- Sumer generation is paid for at

the retail tariff level: But from

‘BEC's perspective the power

fed into the grid using this
method displaces only the cost

‘of fuel, without taking into.’

account other overheads. So

‘BEC prefers the net billing

approach, which requires two
meters per customer — one
tracking power into the grid
and the other tracking power
drawn from BEC, with the
power fed into the grid paid for
at a lower rate.

The new law would also
enable feed-in tariffs for medi-

um-scale generation plants ,

a 16-person delegation at the Sixth Commonwealth Local Government Conference in Cardiff, -
Wales from March 13 to 19.

to boost globalisation

LOCAL
authorities worldwide are pro-
moting responsibility for sus-

tainable economic develop- |

ment.

The Sixth Commonwealth

Local Government Conference

. being held this week in Cardiff,

Wales is concentrating on the
expansion of healthy local
economies that support the tax-
base of the central government
and budgets of local authori-
ties.

Minister of State for. Lands
and Local Government Byran
Woodside is representing the
Americas and heads a 16-per-
son delegation at the confer-

. ence which runs until Saturday.

The conference follows up.

on the success of the Grand
Bahama conference held just
two years ago.

“The Bahamas hosted the
Fifth Conference in Freeport

in May 2009 and that confer-.
ence was hailed not only a suc-..

cess for the Commonwealth
Local Government Forum but
as having attracted the largest
number of participants,” said
Mr Woodside.

“It was a huge economic
boost for the island of Grand
Bahama.”

Minister Woodside’s presen-
tation will define the role of
local government in energising
. local economies and.delivering

the Millennium Development .

Goals.

“An invitation has also been
extended to the Bahamas to
report on the Local Govern-
ment Junior Council Pilot Pro-
ject at the Commonwéalth
‘Youth Forum,” said Mr Wood-
side.

“On Thursday, September
16, 2010, the pilot project of
Local Government Junior
Council was officially launched
at the Susan J Wallace Com:
munity Centre in Freeport,
Grand Bahama and provided
young people with a voice in
the decisions that impact their
homes, schools, and communi-

ty. Students in the Pilot project
’ have networked with commu-
nity leaders, youth organisa- .

‘tions and ordinary members
from the community.”

Given the current economic
climate, the forum chose the
theme “Energising local
economies: Partnerships for

prosperous communities”. Del- .

egates will analyse case studies
and opportunities for local gov-
ernment practitioners to learn
how to create the right envi-
ronment for economic devel-
opment in their poms coun-
tries. °

All 54 members of the Com- -

monwealth of Nations will dis-
cuss strategies from setting
overall local strategic priorities,
to providing an enabling envi-
ronment and efficient services
for economic’ development to
flourish.




“Some ofthe notable speak- |
ers are Helen Clark, UNDP .

Administrator; Kamalesh Shar-
ma, Commonwealth Secretary
General; Kamla Persad-Bisses-

sar, Prime Minister of Trinidad .-
‘and Tobago; Carwyn Jones;

First Minister for Wales; Dame
Margaret Eaton, Local Gov-

dren to your home away from home
which does not have a bed to take her
on the carpet? You left the comfort
of your béd and had sex with your wife

on the ground?”

“Yes I did,” Fraser replied. He
acknowledged that he had previously
testified that a pornographic video was
found in a box in his daughter’s room.

Mr Williams, however, directed him

to testimony by Detective Mark Bar-
rett who stated that two VHS tapes
and two discs were also found in his

- bedroom. Mr Williams contended that

that part of the officer’s evidence was
uncontroverted. Fraser stated, how-
ever, that no tapes were found i in his

. room. Mr Williams noted that the

complainant had alleged that Fraser
had attempted to get her to watch
pornography. Mr Williams also noted

that Detective Barrett had téstified’

that there were a number of suspected
semen spots found on his office carpet
and when these spots were pointed
out to Fraser he appeared shocked.

' “Was it because you had sex with.

the complainant and never thought
you would be found out?” Mr

did it again,”

Williams asked.
“That is not so, sir,” Fraser replied.
Mr Williams further directed him to

his own testimony in which he had

claimed that he had told the com-
plainant’s grandmother everything

regarding the progress of his sessions -

with her granddaughter. Mr Williams
claimed that ‘this contradicted testi-

“mony he had given in which he had

stated that he did not tell the grand-

- mother everything, but kept some

things confidential between himself
and the girl.

Fraser told the court that the com-
plainant’s grandmother lied when she
said that he never gave her a report
relative to the progress of his coun-
selling sessions with the girl.

Fraser also contended that prosecu-
tion witnesses had lied when they stat-
ed that his wife had said, “Honey, you

played in his church office on Palm
Sunday. 2006.

Mr Walliams Went on to ask Fraser:

“Don’t you think it looked bad for a
47-year-old man to be keeping com-
pany with a 16-year-old girl?” Fraser
replied: “I did not keep company with

her. It didn’t look bad because every-
thing was done above the table.” The

said it is easy to see why per-
sons could be lured into: such
ascam. MY

Yesterday, a Tribune
employee turned-out.to be
just such a person.

While wishing not to be |

identified, the victim
explained how he was con-
tacted on Facebook by a Jen-

nifer-Osnuv, asking him to.

carry out such a survey at
Western Union.. —

Creating an account at First
Caribbean Bank, the young
man said he was contacted on
his cell phone by an unidenti-
. fied man with an “African

-wwoice” demanding-that he
_-withdraw. the $2,000 that had
been deposited and send it to

Amadi Kingsley, in Nigeria. :

The test question for the
transfer was ‘Who is the
greatest?’ with the answer,
‘God’.

However, with the employ-

é ee having a $1,000 limit on his

account he could only send
half of the funds on Monday.
Yesterday when he went to
send the. remaining balance
he was informed by banking
officials that he was involved
in.a scam and would be arrest-
ed unless he returned the
$1,000 he had originally sent.

According to detectives

-- from the Commercial Crime .

- Unit, this is a prime example
' ofa “kiting scam” as the orig-

_ inal $2,000 in all likelihood |

never existed. A kiting scam,
they explained is where per-

sons would intentionally write

_a cheque for a-value greater:

than their account balance

‘from an account in one bank,

which is backed up by other

‘bad cheques from other banks ,

for nonexistent money. As it

normally takes a few days for
~ such cheques to clear, by the

time that the last bank:is
made aware of the.scam, the

withdrawing the funds that

were. forwarded to them by
‘the unwitting third party, in

this case, the Tribune employ-
ee.

Up. until press time last
night, the Nigerian-contact
was still attempting tQ. reach
the Tribune employee for t the

“transfer of the remafning
_ funds.

“These guys are still calling
me.-And now I have to. find
this grand to pay the bank
back. I consider myself lucky,

‘learning that people usually

are scammed out of thou-
sahds. I made a terrible mis-
take and was blinded by an

“So if anybody is dealing -

_ with a situation close to this,
“because they could try and

switch it up, if anything try

and report it to the authori- ,

they have cases like this but
they believe it is under report-

for nothing,” he said.

serious abuse of government funds. ] understand that one
such FNM operative was hired as late as this week with
special budgetary measures and accommodations being

"CRO aA

made to ensure that he is paid. I think that is what the pub- |

lic is concerned about and that is what the FNM ought to
answer,” said Mr Mitchell. :

Edward Ellis, BIS director, confirmed a public relations
professional was recently. hired at BIS to work on special
projects. Sources clainied he is a known FNM supporter.

When asked about the potential conflict of interest, the
new BIS employee said: “I have no membership in the

FNM. I don’t work for them. Ihave never received any..

money from them. I am a professional marketer going to BIS
to do what I do best. I don’t mix politics with what I do. I
have always maintained a professional manner in how I
“operate.”

Mr Ellis was appointed director in October 2004. Under
his leadership, and formerly ‘as an employee, Mr Ellis said he
can vouch for BIS and say no such activity takes place.

“The BIS is the Bahamas government agency of record.
We do public relations for the Bahamas government. I
know of no incident where the BIS has done any public rela-
tions for the FNM, not since I have been here. ”

Sources claimed FNM related meetings are held during
BIS work hours, and BIS employees are engaged in devel-
oping slogans, ads, propaganda sheets for FNM officials, and
other party related communication functions. One source
said: “It is eay behind closed doors to blur the lines.”

However, BIS employeés yesterday. denied the existence
of such a link.

One, who formerly did work for the FNM, said: “I do not
do speech writing or ad writing for the FNM. I am not
engaged by the FNM in any way. I am not aware of the exis-
tence of a team of BIS employees that work on FNM relat-
ed propaganda. I would be highly surprised i that were
the case,” said the employee.

Bahrain king clamps down;
three dead as unrest spreads

MANAMA, Bahrain -
Associated Press

BAHRAIN'S king declared
a three-month state of emer-
gency Tuesday to quell a Shiite
uprising, as clashes spread
through the capital and sur-
rounding villages in a show-
down that drew in the region's
major powers and splintered
along its main sectarian fault-
lines. At least two Bahrainis
and a Saudi soldier died, and
hundreds of protesters were
injured by shotgun blasts and
clubs.
_ A force of more than 1 ,000
Saudi-led troops expanded to
defend the Sunni monarchy;
Iran and Lebanon's Hezbollah
denounced the presence of for-
eign soldiers; and Washington
feared for its main naval base in
the Gulf. Any compromise
appeared distant at best, with
the latest order from.Bahrain's
king and protesters' demands
for the royal family to be top-

‘pled altogether. - *

Doctors were: overwhelmed
by onslaught of patients at
Manama's Salmaniya hospital,
rushing the wounded into a
packed emergency room, forc-
ing many to wait in the halls.
Nurses held back ‘tears when
attending to injured young

_men, and doctors could barely

contain their anger.:

_"They were all shot from
close range," said Nabeel
Hameed, a neurosurgeon at the

capital's biggest hospital. He’

looked at an X-ray of the latest

‘patient; shot in the chest, and

added: "Yes, they do shoot to
kill.".

Bahrain's military chief wide

and equal rights for the major-
ity Shiites. ,
At Manama's Pearl Square,

revolt, thousands of protesters

armies when the state of emer-

gency was declared. Bahrain
said more Gulf troops arrived
Tuesday. Opposition leaders
have not yet announced their
next move.

"We are ready for anything,
but this protest started peace-
fully and it. will end peaceful-
ly," said Ali Hassan, a demon-
strator in the square. "We have
no guns, but we will resist by
remaining here as long as we
possibly can."

U.S. Secretary of State

. Hillary Rodham Clinton says

she prodded Saudi Arabia to
support a peaceful political

solution and stressed that "they ,

along with everyone else need

. to be promoting the dialogue"

between protesters and the
monarchy.

The intervention of more
than 1,000 Saudi-led troops
from several Gulf nations was
the first:major cross-border mil-

_itary action to challenge one of

the revolts sweeping across the
Arab world. The Al Khalifa
family has ruled Bahrain for
200 years. The family enjoys

- strong backing from other Gulf

states and the United States,

fearing Iran's expanding influ-

ence.
Several of the injured

. claimed Saudi forces opened

fire between A'ali and Buri,
two villages south of Manama.
"T heard the sound of the

' ni affairs"
-ambassador to Bahrain was

bullet flying and after that my
arm felt like it was falling off,"
said Mohammed Abdullah
Hassan, 18, who was shot in the’
left elbow. "I saw blood and I
realized the bullet hit me." ;
Mohammed Abdulla Maki
al-Nasem, whoa was shot in his
right knee, said he was driving
with friends between the two
villages when they were’
attacked. He said he saw sey-

‘eral military vehicles — some
flying a Saudi flag — moving

along an overpass and shoot-
ing at cars bélow.

"They saw us and just shot
at us," al-Nasem said.

Shiite power Iran denounced
the foreign intervention as
"unacceptable" and predicted

it would complicate the king-

dom's political crisis.
A senior Bahraini foreign |

affairs official, Hamad al-Amer,

called the remarks "blatant
intervention in internal Bahrai-
and said Iran's

istry.

SOMA, Japan '

A fire broke out at a nuclear reactor
again Wednesday, a day after the pow-
er plant emitted a burst of radiation

that panicked an already edgy Japan.

and left the government struggling to
contain a spiraling crisis caused by last
week's earthquake and tsunami.

The outer housing of the contain-
ment vessel at the No. 4 unit at the
Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear complex
erupted in flames early Wednesday,
said Hajimi Motujuku, a spokesman
for the plant's operator,, Tokyo Elec-
tric Power Co.

On Tuesday, a fire broke out in the
same reactor's fuel storage pond — an
area where used nuclear fuel is kept
cool — causing radioactivity to be
released into the atmosphere. Tokyo
Electric Power said the new blaze
erupted because the initial fire had inot
been fully extinguished. '

About three hours after the blaze

. erupted Wednesday, Japan's nuclear

safety.agency said fire and smoke could
no longer be seen at Unit 4, but that it
was unable to confirm that the blaze
had been put out. Also Wednesday,

-Japan's‘nuclear safety agency said 70
percent of the nuclear fuel rods may

have been damaged at another Fukushi-

ma Dai-ichi reactor that was first strick-:

en last week, triggering the crisis.

"But we don't know the nature of

the damage, and it could be either melt-
ing, or there might be some holes in
them," said‘an agency spokesman,
Minoru Ohgoda. .

Japan's national news agency, Kyodo,
said 33 percent of the fuel rods at a sec-
ond reactor were also damaged.

Radiation levels in areas around the

‘nuclear plant rose early Tuesday after-

noon but appeared to subside by
evening, officials said. But the unease
remained in a country trying to recover

from the massive disasters that are.
believed to have killed more than -
10,000 people and battered the world's

third-largest economy.

The radiation leak caused the gov-
ernment to order 140,000 people living
within 20 miles (30 kilometers) of the

plant to seal themselves indoors to

avoid exposure, and authorities
declared a ban on commercial air traf-

fic through the area.

Worries about padinion rippled
through Tokyo and other areas far
beyond that cordon. The stock market
plunged for a second day, eoppne 10
percent.

"Tell them, 'Stop, don't do

"There's a lot of mythology

"You just aren't going to

‘that, by the time it traveled

Chairman Greg Jazcko.

Other governments echoed
that warning.

"We do not expect any

nuclear reactor releases in
Japan, nor is the consumption
of potassium iodide tablets a
necessary precaution," British
Columbia's health ministry
told the public Tuesday.

In Russia, where memory

strong, media reports said
pharmacies in Vladivostok, a
major port just west of Japan,
had run out of the pills.

"The mass media tells us

don't believe the government

‘JFK expansion

By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

The $68.5 million construction costs for the Airport Gateway
Project’ s Phase One “would be recouped in less than nine
years” through reduced gasoline and opportunity costs associ-'
ated with alleviated traffic congestion, the development’s Envi-
ronmental Impact Assessment (EIA) has projected. .

The EIA, conducted by Blue Engineering at the Ministry of
Works’ behest, said that based just on congestion on that por-
tion of JFK Drive between Gladstone Road and Tonique
Williams-Darling Highway, some $7:68 million in traffic con-
gestion costs per year. would be eliminated through widening the
airport access road from two lanes into a four-lane highway.

Explaining that this section of JFK Drive had been selected
for analysis ‘because it regularly became congested during
morning and afternoon peak travel times, the EIA said: “Based
on all motorist journeys taking an additional 20 minutes during
the peak hours, only a total of 584,000 hours per year is wasted

in congested traffic.

per hour, this equates to $5.84 million. On aver-
age, vehicles in New Providence consume 0.75
gallons of petrol per hour in congested traffic.
The total petrol consumption equates to 1,684
gallons.

“Based on.an average cost of $4.20 per gallon,

this totals $1.839 million per year. “Total wasted ~

opportunity time costs and running costs there-
fore equate to approximately $7.68 million per
year.’

The EIA concluded: “Based on the construc-
tion cost estimate and land acquisition estimate,
the project will cost in the order of $68.5 mil-
lion. Therefore, based on the cost of congestion
at JFK Drive between Gladstone Road and the
Tonique Williams-Darling Highway only at the
present time, the project costs will be recouped in
less than nine years.

“Congestion costs will be recouped far sooner
than this, however, due to the fact that traffic
congestion would be worse over time and would
also be relieved on other roads (most notably
West Bay Street and Carmichael Road).” —

The EIA said the ‘do nothing’ option on the
JFK Drive expansion, between Windsor Field
Road and Bethel Avenue, was'not feasible given

the projected total average daily traffic (ADT) |
volume increase of an average 3 per cent per
annum until 2040.

“This rate is higher in the earlier years (4 per
cent) and lower in later years (close to 2 per
cent),” the EIA added. “It is estimated that in :
2012 there will be approximately 12,905 vehicles :

Calling on the Government
to provide some relief. for
affected businesses, in the
form of Business Licence, real
property tax and Customs
duty exemptions, the former
Chamber of Commerce pres-
ident said the Ingraham
administration was effective-
ly asking companies.in these
areas to “take the brunt of
this, suck it up and bear the

cost of construction” in return ’

for upgraded road infrastruc-
ture.

Mr D’ Aguilar said his laun-
dromat at the junction of Fox
Hill Road and Prince Charles
Drive will be the fourth of five
locations impacted by the
New Providence Road
Improvement project, follow-
ing on from his Robinson
Road/First Street; Robinson

Road/Minnie Street; and Sol-’

dier Road/East Street loca-
tion. His outlet at the Blue

Hill Road/Carmichael Road:
intersection is also set to be ©

affected shortly, meaning five
of his total nine laundromats
will suffer. | :
“Superwash may be big
enough and strong enough to
survive this, but there are a
lot of businesses not big
enough and strong enough to
Mr D’Aguilar
told Tribune Business. “The
Government is coming across
as uncaring. The message
from them is: ‘It is what it is;
suck it up. It’s the-cost of

doing business’.
'. “J don’t think anyone’

objects to where we’re going;
it’s how we’re getting there.
We’re very appreciative of
this infrastructure project that
is going to create roads that
are wonderful to drive on. But
the question is: Can you sur-
vive the pain and agony you

have to get. through to get.to~

the promised land?”

Irritating

He added? “It’s irritating’
that it’s just'‘happened this

way, That whole stretch
between Robinson Road and
the Mall at Marathon has
been ongoing for ages and
ages. It will destroy a whole
heap of businesses. I’m sur-
prised business has survived

on Robinson Road for as long ©

as it has.

“It would be good for the
Government to-give people a
bone - some. real property tax
relief, Business Licence relief

- while this is under construc- _
tion, even Customs duty relief

in the affected areas.

“But, basically, the Gov-
ernment is asking businesses
in these communities to take
the brunt. of this, suck it up

"and bear the cost of construc- -

tion in the belief that we will

‘get a wonderful road in six-

12 months,” Mr D’ Aguilar
said.
“Speed is of,the essence, in

‘and out, and what frustrates

people is that there are so
many instances where getting

in and out in an expeditious .

manner has not been the
order of the day. It takes them
a long time to do what they
promised to do. Although
they start off saying it will

take two. months, it takes ©

them too long.”

The former Chamber pres-
ident said businesses in the -

Prince Charles area that is
being impacted by the road-
works had left a Town Hall

Meeting at Dame Doris John- —
son High School on-Thursday_
night “with the understand- - |
ing” that the Ministry of |

Works would continue to dis-
‘cuss with the main Argen-
tinean contractor, Jose Cartel-
lone, “the minimum amount
of road closure necessary to
complete the works”.

The three options under
discussion then were a com-
plete road closure; closure of
one lane, as it is now; or keep-

ing both lanes open and
switching them between the

north and south side of Prince
Charles Drive as work pro-
gressed.

Most

businesses, Mr

D’ Aguilar said, wanted the.

latter option to be taken, but

retary and the powers that be

Donald ‘Masekenuba,

“We need particular attention from the

: Ministry of Tourism, which to date has not
: been as helpful as it maybe ought to have

Mr Turnquest said Grand Bahama often
“gets lumped in with Florida for the most

: the island needed its “own individual atten-

“T would like to see the Ministry of

to do certain creative things, and focus on
Grand Bahama with its own budget to get
it done,” Mr Turnquest told Tribune Busi-
“It’s going to require a lot of invest-
ment in the product, a lot of investment in
people to bring them up to standard so we

that will cause visitors to come back. We
have to pull up our own socks, retrain and
get back to business. This is a Grand
Bahama issue and we have to take our own
responsibility and role in that.”

Niche

Looking ahead to how Grand Bahama
could compete and find its own niche in

' the tourism world, Mr Turnquest told Tri-

bune Business: “I think that our competi-
tion, is not necessarily the Bahamas. We
cannot compete with Nassau, Abaco and
Exuma, which have their own attractions,
charm and characteristics that we don’t
have in Grand Bahama.

“Our competition has to be Florida and

‘West Palm Beach. We have to look at what

attracts people there and do them one bet-
ter. I think our hotel rates are basically too
high. We’re a high cost destination, but

have to do something about the cost of get-
ting here and the cost to stay here.

“We have to look at the product, what
we have to offer, and price ourselves to
give us an opportunity to be competitive.
Right now, I don’t think we are competi-
tive.”

OIL PRICES FALL TO LOWEST LEVEL IN WEEKS

~ NEW YORK

earthquake and tsunami.

Potentially dangerous levels of radiation have been reported |

to have died after the earthquake
and tsunami hit Japan on Friday.

Investors-worried about dimin-

products in Japan, the world's
third-largest oil importer. How-
ever, Wall Street analysts expect
that Japan will eventually
increase imports of oil, coal and

THE TRIBUNE

or apartment dwellers
and those of us who are

surrounded by more
concrete than soil it is espe-
cially rewarding to grow.
shrubs in large containers
that soften the structures
they embellish. Even if you
have a large garden, there are
the front steps and back patio
to beautify.

Probably the most popular con-
tainer shrub at the moment is the
arboricola, a dwarf schefflera that
often has variegated leaves with yel-
low and ivory markings. Arboricola
is often used for hedges but is per-
fect for a specimen pot. It can grow
in either full sun or half shade and
the ornamental leaves are aug-

mented by a display of berries in.
late winter and early spring. Arbori- |

cola is slow growing and is not very
demanding when it comes to water
and feeding.

If it is flowers you want you may
wish to try thryallis, a small shrub
that produces clusters of small star-

like yellow flowers for most of the...

year. It grows to four or five feet
and is perfect for containers.

If you like blue you may wish to
try plumbago. Even better, puta
container of plumbago near to a
container of thryallis and experi-
ence the coolness of yellow and blue
in combination. Plumbago can be
stragely but can be. pruned judi-

‘ ciously to keep a rounded shape. *
One of the most spectacular of,

flowering shrubs is bougainvillea —

but be careful. The. type of.

bougainvillea suited to container
growing is B. glabra.that is usually a
bluish-mauve in The Bahamas. It
has a tree-like growth and smaller
leaves than the’ regular B.
spectabilis, the type of bougainvillea
that sends up long canes and is
totally unsuitable for containers.
There is a selection of dwarf
bougainvilleas from Australia called

‘bambino and these would be per-

fect:

Desert rose is a wonderful con-
taifier candidate that only needs
watering about once a week. If you
are able to choose your specimen
make sure it has a large, bulbous

bottom. This shows that the plant-

has been grown from seed. If there





~



is no bulbous base then the plant
was grown from a cutting and is not
as sturdy. Desert roses bloom
throughout the warmer months but
even when without flowers they
have a dramatic shape and inter-
esting foliage.

Perhaps you would like a pair of
fairly tall evergreens to accent your
portico and this can be achieved
using Norfolk Island pines. I am
sure many readers.are surprised at
this suggestion. After all, the Nor-
folk Island pines we see regularly
are 50 or more feet tall, but do not
panic. The Norfolk Island pine has
a wonderful disposition and: grows
according to the container it is in.
Put it in a 10-gallon container and it
will to five or six feet. If you need it
larger, just re-pot it in a bigger con-
tainer.

Another pleasant quality the Nor-
folk Island pine possesses is the time
between waterings. Instead of
watering often you can let your pine
dry out considerably. In a 10-gal-

lon container you only need to’

water once every two weeks. ‘The
Norfolk Island pine is fine,in cap-
tivity but if you decide to transfer it
to the open soil of the garden it will
become a very tall nuisance.

Some fruit trees can'be grown in’

containers. One of. the most
amenable is feijoa or Cattleya guava
or strawberry guava. The leaves are
small, dark green and glossy and the
fruit is borne in mid.simmer. ~
Key lime can be grown in a con-
tainer but tends to have straggly
growth. Two better citrus choices
are calomondin and kumquat. For

‘these, choose large containers that






will allow for bushy trees and lots of
fruit. The calomondin is-one of the
most attractive of-citrus trees and

would deserve a place in the sun |

even without fruit. The elongated
fruits can be eaten skin and all but
also stay on the.tree as ornaments
for a long time.



ENTERTAINMENT

Those Florida orange trees you
see in presentation packages for sale
in Miami International Airport are
not sweet oranges but kumquats.

- Kumquats are handsome shrubs and

produce plenty: of small orange fruits

that are very very sharp and sour.

Even though they look like’ minia-
ture oranges they should be used as
lime for consumption. They stay on
the tree- even longer than
calomondins and are very orna-
mental.

There you have it. If you live in a.
‘concrete enclave you can still grow

shrubs for beauty or rer food. Or

; both.

THE TRIBUNE



























The:Trinidadian rapper, who also grew
up in Queens New York, garnered much
hype and attention in 2007 when she
released her first mixtape “Playtime is
Over”.

A year later.she dropped.another mix-.
tape “Sucka Free” which was presented
by Young Money, CEO Lil Wayne. With'
these releases, anticipation for this new

* voice heightened even more.

She was like the new “it girl” of fashion.
She took the entire industry by storm and
what played to her success was the fact +
that there were no female rappers, with
the exception of Trina, making any noise

. inthe industry at the time.” 2

- It was interesting to see a fresh face

making her way in such a male dominated |

field. She has step out of the box and —
holds her own all at thesametime.
Nicki'Minaj has evolved so. much since
‘her early years. When she first came on
the scene she portrayed more of a bad girl
. persona. But then little by little a more
polished, calmer, Nicki faced the cameras.
Some call the raptress “fake” because

of the change in her style and appearance. |

When she first started in music industry
she did not have the wigs or crazy cos-
tumes. But truth is change is inevitable
and if Nicki stayed the same and tried to
market that “bag girl persona” like the
rest of the female rappers she would have

: been less interesting and very boring. The

crazy wigs, out there costumes, and the
animated Voices is what makes Nicki
Minaj the artist that she is. And her evo-
lution will not come to'a halt anytime .
soon so 4. cae aha
And the animated voices that most peo-
_ ple find appealing is also part of this evo-
lution of the Pink Barbie. Nicki Minaj
said in aninterview, that she has discov-

ered so much about herself and her talent.

The cartoon like sounds came after she
started playing around with her voice.
And she has tapped into a place that.
makes her such a captivating presence.

Nicki Minaj has-established herself as.a
successful business woman; and a very tal-°

ented artist mi

She has set the bar for female rappers
to follow and with her ingenuity and cre-
ativity she can make you look even if you
don’t want to! :

IT WAS 1999 that Rashad Mcphee also
known as Soulja Shaddy, realised that he was
interested in becoming a music producer.

Motivated by his parents, Rashad tells In Ya
Ear: " I'm a drummer at heart, I was making’
noise (music) on every and anything I could find
to hit on. I played at my pre-school graduation at
the age of four, if I can recall correctly. The first
song 'that inspired me was Puff Daddy's: ‘Cant
nobody hold me down’ that featured Mase:"

Going further, the producer recalled the first
group he had produced saying: " It was a group
that goes by the name of (IB - International
Ballers - Gambino, Sham, & Slim.) The experi-



- ence felt great and I felt on top of the world

back then."
‘" I started producing at about thirteen years of
age and I had my first song on the radio at age

fifteen, that was written, produced, engineered,

and mixed by me." .

Rashad has come a long way since his early
days, to date he has worked with well over ten
music groups and about thirty to forty artists, he
confirms.

When asked if producing can be a difficult -
task for him, he says: "Well I think-once some-

thing is in you and you have a passion for it, it
isn't really difficult, so I would have to say no."
The twenty two year old says he have plans to

‘ be in the producing business for as long as he -
lives, "It is what I breathe, and what I live to do,
I'll probably retire at age eighty God spares," he |

said.
In recent years, Rashad has worked with
artists such as: "Najie Dun, Sammi Starr, Sosa

_ Man, M-deez, Alexandria Christie, Jah Cure,

Queen Ifrica, Shawn Storm, Lisa Hype, i-octaine,

_ Christian Massive, Ricardo Clarke, Cazna

Finzs, Daddi Whites, Foots, Chase, Sluggz,

Sketch, El Padrino, and a few more from Grand
Bahama, but I basically want to work with every-
one and anyone with a positive attitude who
the art seriously. Internationally, I would like to
work with my favourites, Dr Dre, Eminem, Jay-
z, Timbaland, Drumma Boi, Kanye West."

Offering advice for people wanting to start
in the producing field, he says: "The key to being
anything and to be good at it is to be passionate

A MYRIAD of jewelry shops,
knock-off bags, and endless inex-
pensive “Bahamas” t-shirts that all
start to blend together are what the
average Bahamian perceives as

_ downtown Nassau’s identity in 2011.

What-most-may not realise is Bay
Street is really comprised of a sea
of low cost, non-indigenous and in
some cases illegal items. What's
worse is this artificially constructed
identity greatly overshadows the cul-
turally active and resurging art scene
that’s reclaiming downtown more
aggressively than a category 5 hurri-
cane.

The good news is Walk and Talk
Art Tours.can teach you to recognise
and appreciate this cultural revolu-
tion — all you need to do is open
your eyes and see downtown Nassau

in a vibrant new light.

Sabrina Francis, Rachel Turnquest-
Garcia and the late Jeffrey Taylor.

Up and coming Bahamian Design House
ILashan gave a commanding performance at
the event which featured other notable design-
ers:including April Burrows, Jovette House of

_Couture and the late Valda Duncombe. Tak-
ing cues from Mother Nature, the aptly titled -

colours with organic shapes, textures and pat-

terns.

Using spectacular combination of satins,

silks, charmeusse, chiffon and taffeta,

ILashan’s collection of evening gowns and
cocktail dresses embodied a timeless yet sen-

sual feel.

“My goal with this collection is to give the
modern. Bahamian woman an outlet to tap
into the goddess within herself,” said Indira
Moss, founder and designer of the ean

label.

ABOUT THE DESIGNER

The Bahamas got its first glimpse of Ms
Moss at the annual Heart Ball in 2010,
where she presented the Sir Victor Sassoon
(Bahamas) Heart Foundation with a life-
sized replica of its Red Dress pin. Less than
a month later she showcased one.of her first

collections, Renaissance Women, at ‘Pretty -

in PINK: I’m a Survivor’ - a photo exhibition
in aid of the Sister Sister (Breast Cancer)

‘Support Group held at the Hilton in Febru-

ary. In April she débuted her first full line at.

-Excelling at the art from a young age, Ms
Moss graduated with a bachelor’s degreein

and Design (2008) in Savannah, Georgia.
After coming back to New Providence, Ms.
Moss signed on as a volunteer for Islands of
the World Fashion Week working closely
with the designers of the 2009 showcase.

Her love of fabrics and textiles is an insa-
tiable passion that is now her life’s work and

36-member swim team selected for Se

By RENALDO DORSETT |
Sports Reporter

tdorsett@tribunemedi. net.

THE Bahdmas Séimiming Federal
tion officially released the roster of
its team scheduled to. compete. in the
XXVI.Carifta eight Champi-
onships.

A 36-member team was selected to ‘
compete in the region’s most high pro-,

file meet for juniors, set for April 23-
26 in Bridgetown, Barbados.
Each member of the team surpassed

Carifta qualifying times for their

respective events.
Andy Knowles is the head coach

~ and he will be assisted by Lucas Leite ’

and Matt Spencer.
Patra Albury is the team manager

-and the chaperones are Cecile Greene,
‘Lyn Evans, and Keith Lloyd. Dr

Kevin Bowe is the team doctor.

"We are taking a full squad. We
have some new. kids that will compete
in international competition for the
first time. We have a few age groups

‘that are quite weaker than the others
$0 we are just going down there-to try

and get as many points as we can,"
Knowles said.

"I think we are looking at trying to
focus on kids just swimming personal
best.times at the meet. We are in dis-
cussions right now with the federa-
tion on how we can improve our Carif-
ta performances. There are quite a

‘few recommendations which will

hopefully be in place for next year.
But right now at this point our focus is
to go down there and improve on per-
sonal best times and we will see what
happens with the medals and the
points." \



HEAD COACH: Andy Murray.

Knowles said he looks‘toward the

~ youngest group of swimmers to have a

great impact-on the team's perfor-
mance and noted that the early nam-
ing of the team will be beneficial to the

training regimen of.the athletes over

the last month.

"Most of the time the new kids are
in the younger age groups. These
groups always'step up and really doa
lot better than their entry times going
in so I'm looking for them to have a

really good showing. The young age ~

group kids are very fast but they still
have lots of improvement to do," he
said.

"Swimming always demands the
entry forms at least a month before
the event. So we needed to. pick the
team maybe a bit earlier than we
would like to. All the coaches will be
pushing the kids very hard over the
hext few weeks and perhaps tapering

the gold medal at the Central

American and Caribbean Games
in July, knew that it was a match .
that could have gone either way. —
“Tm proud of the way Nikkita
and I played,” said Grand Bahami-
an native Russell. “First, we were
‘nervous, but we got into the match
‘and we knew that we had nothing
to lose,.so we just went out there
and played aggressive and it was
postive?! ;
‘Fountain noted: “Unfortunate-’
ly, we made it a little closer than it
needed to be. We got down to the
end in the tie-breaker and we had
‘match point, but we played a little

back a bit heading into Carifta."

At the.end of the four-day compe-
tition in 2010, which was hosted at the
National Stadium in Kingston,
Jamaica, the Bahamas closed out the
XXV Carifta Swimming Champi-

onships with a productive finale and |
rose in both the point and medal’

standings.

The Bahamas finished the meet
third in the point standings with 603
points and fourth in the medal count

with a total of 37 (eight gold, 13 silver

and 16 bronze).

Trinidad. and Tobago were again
the overall winners of the event with a_

total of 1,011 points, the only team to
break the 1,000-point mark. They fin-
ished more than 300 points ahead of
their nearest competitors.

50 thing.”

q When asked what was going



on-in her mind in the close tie
breaker, Fountain quipped: “I
can’t tell you. I can’t say that.”

But she did say: “I missed
one back hand volley to take
us up break point and we
missed another volley on an
overhand that came off my

serve. We were right there. We

just have to learn to lose it. We
really had it though.”
Likewise, Russell said in the
tie breaker when she was serv-
ing at 9-7, she wanted to “go

_ for it, but I miss hit it. I wasn’t

sure that she was going to get it,
but she got it back and it was a

tough shot.”

Fountain and Russell broke
their opponents twice in the
first set - the first at 3-2 and
then again at 3-3 - and they
went on to secure the opener.

In the second set, the two
teams held serve until Borwell
and Dekmeijere got the only

. break when Russell missed an

easy over-hand shot and Foun-
tain double faulted on her final

‘serve to force the tie-breaker.

Fountain, however, said that
while they were able to get in as
a wild card entry into the main
draw of the doubles, they hope

that next year they can be
afforded the same opportunity
to do so in singles in the main
draw.

“This gave us a little expo-
sure and the young players got
a chance to see such a high lev-
el of competition,” Russell said.
“It was just good.”

Like the field of players in
the tournament, this is the first

time that Borwell and Dekmei-_

jere have been in the Bahamas
and they were all quite
impressed with what they’ve
seen, especially Paradise Island.
“We love it,” they both said.

stripped of the title for dop-°

ing and won‘ the long jump
for a fourth straight time at
the 1996 Atlanta Games.

"I'm along jumper that ©

sprinted," Lewis said.
“Everyone says: fastest man

in the world.' Yeah, I was
that, too. I was able to win
_ four in a row in the long

jump. I take the most pride
in that. To come back and
be the first one to actually
win back-to-back and then

do it four times, it was just .

tremendous."

The sport's greatest ath-
lete since Lewis is Usain
Bolt, the. Jamaican sprinter
who swept the 100, 200 and

_ 4x100 relay at the 2008 Bei-

jing Olympics in world-
record times. A year later,
Bolt again set world records

in the 100 and 200 at the.

world championships in
Berlin.
Can Bolt defend his

. Olympic titles in London?

"The opportunity : is
there," Lewis said. "It's very,
very difficult, as I know, to

win back-to-back at the:

Olympics. So many things

have to happen for you to -
win once; let alone twice, so -

good luck to him."
But Lewis is cheering for

American sprinter Tyson °

Gay, who beat Bolt in Stock-
holm last year and has the
second fastest time ever in
the 100 (9.69 seconds)
behind the Jamaican's 9.58.
"I think its going to be a
tremendous race," Lewis
said. "I went.to two Olympic

. finals and you never know

what's going to happen\
Usain has run tremendously.
He's the best in the world
right now, but Tyson's going

to give him a run for his

money."

2012 London Games clock stops Pa 17 hours

By ROB HARRIS —
AP Sports Writer



LONDON (AP) — A giant
clock:counting down to the
2012 Olympics stopped on

Tuesday, less than a day after -

’ being started in London's
Trafalgar Square.
The digital clock, which i is

made by Olympic sponsor-

Omega, was stuck at 500 days,
7 hours, 6 minutes, 56 sec-
onds.

"We are very disappointed
that it has stopped working,"
Omega said in a-‘statement to
The Associated Press. "It's
obviously a technical fault and
we've got people working on
it now." ,

Four British Olympic

champions — rowers Pete
Reed and Andy Hodge and
sailors Iain Percy and Andrew
Simpson — unveiled the steel
clock on Monday amid
pyrotechnics beneath Nel-
son's Column to mark the
500-day countdown to the
opening ceremony on July 27,
2012.

"The clock underwent rig-
orous testing’ by our experts

- COUNTDOWN: Fireworks light up as the London 2012 Olympic Games countdown clock registers 500 a devs till the games begin at a ceremony

before the launch," Omega
said. "This is very unusual and

‘we are hoping to have it back

up and running soon. '
London 2012 chairman
Sebastian. Coe had said the
clock would serve as a "daily
and hourly reminder to every-
one who visits Trafalgar
Square that the countdown to
the start of London 2012 has
well and truly begun and that
the greatest show on earth is
soon coming to our country."
The Paralympic countdown

on the other side of the clock,

which is 27 feet high and 16
feet long, is still working.

The -clock's failure wasn't
the only Olympic glitch on
Tuesday, when 6.6 million
tickets went up on sale.

A few hours into the ticket
launch, fans with Visa credit

cards that expire before the ©

end of August found that they
were unable to process their

-orders.

‘Visa is an Olympic sponsor
and the only card that can be
used to purchase tickets.

"It is an issue with Visa -

rather than the website or our
systems," London 2012 said.

Tuesday night.

Johnson donned a black >

With Johnson firing. fady ;

the Hdwks went on a 20-0'run

that started at the end ofthe.

first quarter and extended
into the second. The Bucks

missed 10 straight shots —
.plus turned it over four times

— during a scoring drought
of nearly 6 minutes.

Andrew Bogut led Mil-

wasn't nearly enough against

Johnson and the Hawks, who

shot a staggering 63 percent
(46 of 73).

1. Four, hearts. By bidding four,

hearts, you imply a five-card heart

suit, since it would make no sense to
introduce a four-card suit at this
stage.

At the same time, the heart rebid
identifies a holding of at least six dia-
monds, since if your two suits were
equal in length, you would have bid
hearts rather than diamonds at your
second turn.

Although your hand is very prom-
ising for slam purposes, you cannot,
safely bid more than four hearts. The
impetus must come from your part-
ner, whose responses so far have
promised nothing.

2. Pass. It may seem dangerous to

pass with a singleton spade, but it.
would be even more dangerous to.

-bid again. Introducing your four-card
heart suit on the four-level is

chancier than hoping partner has suf- _

ficient length and/or strength in
spades to stop the opponents from
taking the first five tricks. Your best
shot is to rely on the nine tricks in
notrump you already have right in
the palm of your hand.
3. Five diamonds. There is no
~ need to risk notrump with this layout
— you have only eight certain tricks
at notrump — when you are virtually
assured of 11 tricks in diamonds. Just
about all you need from partner to
make five diamonds is the ten of
hearts.

It would be wrong to bid four |

hearts; if partner has. only three
hearts and three or fewer diamonds,
he might elect to pass and leave you
in a contract that is not as good as
five diamonds would be.

4. Four notrump. This is not
Blackwood but rather a raise in

Nadal, Wozniacki get easy wins in Indian Wells

INDIAN WELLS, Calif.
(AP) Rafael Nadal:
breezed past American qual-
ifier Ryan Sweeting 6-3, 6-1
in a third-round match Mon-
day as the second week of the
BNP Paribas Open began.

Nadal improved to 28-4 in
“his career at Indian Wells,
where he's won twice. The

world's top-ranked men's b

player has lost six. games in
his first two matches while
showing no lingering effects
from his recent left thigh
injury.

"T didn't play nothing real-
ly impressive, but I played sol-
id. I didn't have big mistakes,"
he said. "The more positive

one of the toughest players to .

play against. She had a lot of
errors. I returned a lot better,
and served a lot better in the
second set."

two hours to derail the upset

3-6, 6-4, 6-2 when the Russian

“sent a backhand down the line
on match point. .

There were two upsets on
the men's side: fourth-seed-

den and No. 11 seed Nicolas

MARCH 19 & 20, 2011 BAHAMAS KENNEL CLUB 301i ANNUAL DOG SHOW & OBEDIENCE TRIALS |



_ A Message from June Hall
Show Chairman and President of the .
~ Bahamas Kennel Club

Welcome to the B.K.C’30" Annual Dog Show & Obedience Trials.

This year the show is being held on the grounds of Bahamas Food Services Glad-
stone Road..It will be our third venue since 1981.

' The first Bahamas Kennel Club show was a local show was held at ahi Q.E.Sports
Centre. We had prestigious Judges for both Breed and Obedience Trials. The Sport
of Obedience has grown, as in 1982 we only had dogs compete for Novice titles,
but today we now have dogs competing up to the Utility Level. We have introduced
Rally Obedience and have competitors’ up to the Excellent level with one Bahamian
Dog receiving am RAE. Title (Rally Advanced Excellent) this year. Working with our
two Obedience Partners the Nassau Agility and Obedience Dog Club and the Abaco
Dog Training Club we hope to offer competition Agility Trials next year.

We moved to The Botanic Gardens in 1982 and our show was held there through
9010. We are grateful to Bahamas Food Services for allowing us to move the show
~ to their grounds. As Obedience has grown in popularity, the need to have larger
regulation rings and easier transport of equipment moved us to look for a site which
had a larger open area for the competition rings.

Our first International Dog Show was held in 1982. We had many U.S dogs, some

owner handled many shown by Professional Handlers. We (the Bahamas Kennel

Club)thought it would be a great opportunity for Bahamians to see top quality dogs —

and breeds they had not seen before. Today we have handlers bringing dogs that
have supported our shows for over 20 years. Recently one of these exhibitors Betty
Umberto Wells came to Nassau to give a handling/grooming Work Shop Joyce Han-
son and Kevin Thomas continue to support our shows bringing Championship qual-
ity dogs to the show every year. Thank you! We appreciate your loyalty.

The early shows brought many tourists to our shores they came on cruise ships.
It was called ‘THE BOAT CRUISE’.

_The Bahamas Kennel Club was formed inl978. The first President was Mrs Mary
Ann Jones. It was formed to create a Dog Registry for Pure Breed Dogs, however we
also wanted to’strive for the better care and control of all dogs. This meant as the
shows continued we introduced a Speciial Class for dogs whose responsible owners
had spayed or neutered them. This class continues to grows larger each year.

As you look through our supplement you will see many great dogs and their
handlers.

Showing a dog is a special partnership between the handlers and their dogs.

Our show celebrates this unique bond between man and his canine companion.

As Chairman-for most of these shows I would like thank the many people.over
the years who have helped and supported our shows.. All the Show Committees par-
ticularly the Secretaries (like RitaHall who has kept me on the right track for more
than 25yrs!) Lorraine Lightbourn, who has been our announcer since 1981. I would
also like to give our sincere thanks to Jon & Carol Mett our Obedience Judges.this
year, who coritinue to give us workshops, seminars and judge our January Obedi-
ence Trials and provide so much support. Carol helps us to believe in ourselves and
our dogs, not an easy task! We would like to thank our show sponsors, advertisers,
corporate donors ,our exhibitors and the general public that attend the shows.

Avery special thank you to the Ministry of Agriculture and Marine Resources who
assist us in providing the import permits for overseas exhibitors.

This year we have a special thank you for our Sponsors PURINA PROPLAN and
Richard Curry who have brought The Purina Agility Team to demonstrate for us -Do
Not miss these exciting demonstrations!

Again thank you and may the best dog win!

a Dog

he judge walks up and down

a line of beautiful, perfectly

groomed dogs. The ani-
mals stand-almost completely
still, eyes on their handlers.
The handlers, meanwhile, keep
glancing at the judge, waiting
for him to stop and take that
one, last look.

He then returns to the stew-
ards’ table, marks his book and
returns with a large, fluttering,
red, white and blue rosette. And
after a few words to the audi-
ence at ringside, the judge points
at and proclaims his choice for
Best in Show.



tat
Show

It's ascene that plays out just
about every weekend someplace
in North America .. Show dogs
and their “people” will travel
for miles from venue to venue,
looking for championship points,
qualifying scores or to move up
in the rankings. However in The
Bahamas, the Bahamas Kennel
Club Dog Show is our one op-

_ portunity to experience this

canine competition.

Dog shows are a wonderful
chance to get an up-close look at
many different types of breeds,
including some-you may other-
wise see only on television. You

can talk to breeders, owners,
handlers and groomers about
the pros and cons of certain
breeds. You can see dogs put
to the test in events such as
obedience and AKC Rally. And

if you feel like spending a little-

coin on dog-related stuff, you
can probably find what you need
at a dog show — and a whole
lot more.

Conformation is, at its most
basic level, an evaluation of
breeding stock. With just a
few exceptions limited to stud
dog/brood bitch classes and
independent-specialty veterans
classes, spayed or neutered
dogs cannot show in confor-
mation. Judges evaluate a dog
based on how closely the ani-
mal matches the breed stand-
ard This is because, in theory,
a dog close to the “ideal” will
produce quality progeny.

In the ring you'll see the
judge examine every inch of
the dog from teeth to tail, and
then watch the dog’s gait and the

animal moves ina pattern of the

judge's choosing. The dog most
closely representing its breed
standard (according to judges
on that particular day) wins.
Think of a conformation event
like a pyramid, with non-cham-
pions forming the base. In each
breed at an AKC show, males
and females compete separately



in one of the “regular classes”:
Puppy, 12-18 Months, Novice,
Amateur-Owner-Handler, Bred
By Exhibitor, American-Bred or
Open (the latter two are always
offered at shows). The winners
of each class’ compete in the
Winners Class (again, divided
by sex). The Winners Dog and
Winners Bitch, then, compete
with the champions in their
breed for Best of Breed.

The Best of Breed win-
ners divide into their re-
spective variety groups, the
seven AKC groups being
Sporting, Hound, Working,
Terrier, Toy, Non-Sporting
and Herding. The seven
group winners then com-
pete for Best in Show, with
one dog reigning supreme
for the day.

Canine Obedience

The purpose of an obe-
dience trial is to show how
well a dog has been trained

(continued on page 6)



Pace 6

MARCH 19 & 20, 2011



(continued from page 5)

as a companion. It takes many,
many hours of work to get a dog
ready for a trial, but the results,
including the thrill of a BKC title,
are well worth it.

There are three levels of
obedience competition: Nov-
ice, Open and Utility. Each level
has its own set of exercises. A
dog competing in Novice, for
example, must be able to heel
on-leash (which includes a fig-
ure eight), heel off-leash, stand
for examination, -do a recall
(“come”), sit for one minute, and
remain in a down position for
three minutes. The dog must
earn more than 50 percent of
the awardable points for each
exercise with a total of at least
170 points to get a qualifying

=

score.

Once two different judges (3
in North America) certify that
the dog has received qualifying
scores in a level at three trials,
that dog earns the obedience
title for that level: Companion
Dog (CD) for Novice, Companion
Dog Excellent (CDX) for Open
and Utility Dog (UD) for Utility.

AKC Rally is relatively new
to the world of dog shows, but
it's gaining in popularity. The
American Kennel Club calls
Rally a “successful stepping
stone from the AKC Canine
Good Citizen Program to the
world of obedience or agility.”

Like in obedience, there.

are three levels to Rally. These
levels are Novice, Advanced
and Excellent. Depending on

the level, a dog-handler team
must go through 10-20 stations.
At each station, the dog must
perform an exercise. Scoring is
not as rigid as in obedience. In
order to receive the Rally title for
each level, the dog must receive
three qualifying scores from two
different judges.

Unlike in conformation,
spayed and neutered dogs are
allowed to compete in obedi-
ence and Rally.

Once at a show, here are a
few things to keep in mind.

° Keep children under control,
period. There are just too many
temptations at dog shows, par-
ticularly the dogs themselves.
For the safety of all concerned,
kiddos need to stay close and
keep their hands off the dogs

We make partying ...

‘RESERVE YOUR
PARTY



a

unless given permission by the
handler or groomer.

° As far as petting the dogs, the
same goes for adults. Some
of these dogs take hours to
prepare for the ring. Hands
off unless given permission.

e Do not try to talk to or pet a dog
in the ring. Besides bothering
the dog and/or the handler,
you may give the appearance
of “double handling” the dog,
which is a big show no-no.

e Don’t eat ringside. Handlers
often use food to “bait” a dog,
and additional yummy smells
nearby will be a distraction.

e And as mentioned earlier, dog
shows are great opportunities
to learn about different breeds.
People in the dog show com-



* munity are well aware of this.
Most of them will respond to
you, because education is key
to choosing the right breed to
spend a life with. However, the
last place to do this is near
the gate right before a class.

The handlers are getting their
dogs ready, and that has to be
their sole focus. Instead, head
back into the grooming area,
or look for folks holding dogs

-away from the gate, perhaps
sitting ringside. Dog folks love
to talk about their dogs!

Enjoy the wonderful world of
dog shows this weekend. Who
knows you may get bitten by
the show bug yourself.

Judging criteria

_ Juniors are judged on their

-ability to present, or handle,

their dogs within the same for-

mats and guidelines.as those

who compete in the breed ring.
The quality of their presentation,
not the dog, is judged. Juniors
are encouraged to develop their
handling abilities, dress appro-
priately, conduct themselves in
a proper manner, and present
their dog in a well-groomed

_ condition.

What about the dog?

Any dog entered must be eli-

gible to compete in dog shows or

obedience trials. The dog must
be owned by the child, a member
of the child’s family or member
of his household.

How to get started

The best way for prospective
junior handlers to see what is
involved in junior handling is to
watch the Junior Showmanship
classes at a dog show. They will
see how children take part at all
levels of competition, how they

-. have developed friendships and
have learned t6 compete and

accept their wins and losses
ina gracious manner. Talk to
these young participants in our
sport. You will be impressed by
their knowledge, attitudes and
their willingness to share their

- experiences with someone new

to the sport. Another way to learn
the basics is at your local dog
club. Many: clubs offer weekly .
handling classes. These infor-
mal sessions are conducted ina’
relaxed atmosphere and afford
both dog and handler an op-
portunity to practice in a setting
similar to an actual show. The
Nassau Agility and Obedeince
Dog Club and Stubsdale Dog
Care Centre both offer weekly

- clases in Obedience and Dog

Handling.
In order to receive Premium
Lists (which detail date, loca-

~_ tion and judges of all classes at

a particular show) forshows in
your area one should should join
the Bahamas Kennel Club. The
Club is the purebred registry for

all dogs in The Bahamas and also

support Obedience and Agility
Clubs nationally. “The BKC is
a strong advocate of neuter-

-ing and spaying which is part
_ of responsible dog ownership.

PuertoRicoAgilityTeamto-
Perform at the BKC Show

The. Puerto Rico Agility Team
(PRAT) was founded in 2002 by 6 han-
dlers wishing to promote the sport
on their island. The Bahamas Kennel
Club is delighted to have this talented
team perform at our 30" Anniversary
All Breed and Obedience Dog Show.

A select group of PRAT members,
led by Presiden Rafel Quifiones will be
traveling to The Bahamas. after being
in Mexico to be part of “DOGS” the In-
credible Dogs Show. PRAT - performed
as part of the show in the Agility and
Weavepole Racing segments of the
show.

Breeds making up the team are
Border Collies, Sheltand Sheep Dogs
and a Pug.

The Team will be. performing Sat-
urday and Sunday at the BKC Show
at the grounds of Bahamas Food Ser-
vices on Gladstone Road. The Teams
appearance is sponsored by Purina.





























It is with great sadness and tears in my eyes, that I inform
you that we have lost our precious girl— CH Kimro's
Kall Me Krazy - BKC and AKC champion. We lost her
on November 25, 2010, 36 hours after she gave birth to
4 beautiful Miniature Pinscher puppies. Kalle was a
wonderful girl who was gone to soon.

She will be sadly missed. She has however left behind a
legacy that shows great promise. She will not be soon
forgotten. I will meet you at the bridge my girl.

RESPONSIBLE
Dog Owner

Among companion animals, Sous
are unmatched in their devotion,
loyalty and friendship to humankind.

Anyone who has ever loved a dog can ~

attest to its hundred-fold return. The

excitement your dog shows when you

come home, the wagging tail at the
sound of the leash being taken from
its hook, the delight in the tossing of

a tennis ball, and the head nestled in

your lap-those are only some of the

rewards of being a dog owner.

Owning a dog is not just a privi-
lege-it’s a responsibility. These ani-_
mals depend on us for, at minimum,
food and shelter, and deserve much
more. If you are considering taking a-
dog into your life, you need to think
seriously about the commitment that
dog ownership entails. If you already
have a dog, you need to consider if
you are fulfilling all your obligations
as its owner. -

The Bahamas-Kennel Club is com-
mitted to helping dog owners raise
happy, healthy dogs. Here are a few
suggestions to help you be the best
owner you can be.

1. Recognize the Commitment
Dog ownership is not something
to be entered into lightly. Owning
a dog is a long-term emotional
and financial commitment. Before
deciding that a certain dog is
right for you, you must make an
honest assessment-as to whether
your home is right for any dog.

2. Evaluate Your Lifestyle

If you get a dog, he (or she) will
become a part of your life. You
need to make sure that he’s
suited for your lifestyle. For
example, if you are athletic, you
will probably not be happy with a
dog that has a low energy level. If
you are extremely neat, you will

‘ probably want a dog that doesn’t

shed much. All aspects of your
family’s life - hobbies, activities,
personalities, schedules - should
be evaluated before you get a
dog.

Make a List

Based on-your evaluation, de-
termine what qualities you want

in a dog. Consider size, energy
level, grooming needs, trainability .

-and temperament. Do you want
‘a guard dog or a lap dog? Is it

important that your dog get along
with children? If you rent your
home, are there restrictions on
height, weight or breed? Answer
these questions now - once you
bring a dog home, it can be heart-
breaking to realize that you made
the wrong choice.

Choose a Breed

Once you have made your list of -
ideal characteristics, do some
research to find which breeds fit
that profile. Go to your local li-
brary, attend a dog show, and visit
the AKC website. Narrow your
choices to the breed that seems
right for you.

Get a Referral

You have a much better chance
of being satisfied if you get your
dog from a responsible, ethical
breeder whose primary concern is
to produce dogs of high quality,
good-health and stable tempera-.
ment. The BKC can provde you
with a Breeder Referral contact
for each recognized breed. These
individuals can put you in contact
with breeders or rescue organiza-
tions.

Consider an Older Dog

Puppies aren't for everyone. If an
older dog better fits your lifestyle,

Set a Containment Policy

It is essential that you have a
secure method of keeping your
dog on your property. Check your
fence for spots vulnerable to
chewing or digging. If your yard is
not fenced, consider a large dog
run or invisible fencing. If your -_
property is not fenced in some
way, stress to family members



a fast-growing puppy.

. Find a Veterinarian

You should choose a veterinarian
for your dog as soon as possible.
Have your dog examined by the
vet within a few days of his ar-
rival. Give your vet copies of the
dog’s health records, and set up a
vaccination and check-up sched-
ule.

1. Repel Fleas and Ticks

Aside from discomfort, parasites
such as fleas and ticks can cause
serious diseases. Keep your dog,
his bedding, and your home

free from parasites by using the
method recommended by your
veterinarian.

Baark!’s primary goal is to improve the conditions at the Canine Control

15.

16.

Dogs can succumb to heat stress
in a matter of minutes. Do not
leave your dog in the car when
the temperature is high. When
your dog is outside, he should
have a shady place to lay down
and plenty of fresh, cool water.

Plan Activities With Your Dog
Include your dog in family activi-
ties. Take him to the park or on out-
ings to the beach, or to special ac-

tivities such as the “Dog Olympics”

or dog walks that support neutering
and spaying . Your dog will love be-

obedience, agility or rally events.

Spay or Neuter

The Bahamas Kennel Club en-
courages pet owners to spay or
neuter their dogs as a responsi-
ble means to prevent accidental
breeding resulting in unwanted
puppies.

. Love Your Dog

Your dog will love you no matter

what. Return the favor.

Make That Tail Wag
Your dog's tail is a barometer of

_ his emotions. Do what you can to

Unit/Government Pound. We aim to relieve the suffering of the animals who
| end up in the Pound with better treatment during their stay; to rescue as many
as we can; and to improve the overall function and operations at the Govern-
_ {| ment Pound. To achieve this we will work along with other animal welfare
j Organizations, and with the Government until changes are made.
Our secondary goal is to create public awareness for humane treatment of
j animals, and promote the importance of spay and neuter nationwide, elimi-
| nating the sadness of animals without homes and to reduce the numbers of
} animals roaming the streets. We feel that targeting the source of unwanted
| animals that then wind up at’the Government Pound is very important. By
| creating public awareness campaigns, we hope to change the way the majority
of animals in the Bahamas are treated. .

prosecutors charged that
his claim of having sex with
his wife in his church office
was “made-up.”

While under. cross-exam-
ination yesterday the pros-
ecution sought to highlight
inconsistencies in Fraser’s
testimony. Prosecutors
have accused Fraser, 53, of
abusin§ his position of trust

' by having a sexual rela-
’ tionship with a 16-year-old

. girl he had agreed to coun-

sel. It is alleged that Fraser,

pastor of Pilgrim Baptist
Temple, St James Road,
had a sexual relationship
with the girl between July

2005 and February:2006. If -

convicted, he faces seven

. years in prison.

Fraser
affirmed his previous tes-
timony that semen found

on the carpet of his church

office came as a result of

_having sex with his wife.

He said yesterday that pri-
or to police searching his
church office he could not
recall the last time he had

NDP CANDIDATE
HITS OUT AT WSC
OVER ‘BROWN,
RUSTY WATER’

By CELESTE NIXON
Tribune Staff Reporter

cnixon@tribunemedia.net

A NATIONAL Devel-
opment Party candidate is
hitting out at the Water
and Sewerage Corpora-
tion for supplying
Seabreeze residents with
brown, rusty water-—
which he claims could lead
to health complications.

Lindon Nairn, deputy
leader of the NDP and the
party’s candidate for
Seabreeze, issued a state-
ment yesterday claiming
residents have had "non-
potable water pumped
into their homes by the
Water and Sewerage Cor-
poration for more than a
decade".

Mr Nairn, producing a
sample of cloudy brown
water he said was taken _
from a home in the area,
as well as an allegedly
two-day-old water filter,

said: “You can observe the
high rust content of the :

water and the shocking
discolouration of the fil-
ter."
“Weare advised by z a
physician that regular con-
sumption of water con-
taining high rust content
could lead to a number of
health complications,” he
added.

According to Mr Nairn,
households have suffered
tremendous financial loss-
es over the years, as
clothes, dishwashers,
washing machines and |
plumbing fixtures have
been destroyed by the’

. "filthy water."

He called on the gov-
ernment to bring relief to
the residents of Seabreeze
by compensating them for
the loss of appliances and
clothing and replacing the
water.mains.in.the area.as.
aE ag possible.

ARMED ROBBERY

POLICE are investi-

gating the shooting of

two men in an armed
robbery on Monday

‘night.

The victims were

women when they were: }

approached by two
men in a car at about

10pm. - hed

The culprits shot
both men in the legs
after robbing them of
an undetermined

, amount of cash,

according to police.

The victims were tak-
en to hospital in a pri-
vate vehicle. Both were
reported to be in stable
condition last night.

Less than half an
hour later, police were

Fred Mitchell: perceived
split between police, PLP
played role in last election

By NOELLE NICOLLS
Tribune Staff Reporter
nnicolls@tribunemedia.net

A PERCEIVED split
between the Royal Bahamas
Police Force and the Progres-
sive Liberal Party had a role to
play in the outcome of the 2007 -
election, said Fred Mitchell,
opposition spokesman on the
public service.

And, Mr Mitchell accused
the Free National Movement
(FNM). of dipping into its polit-

week to manufacture another
“false dispute” between. the
PLP and the police.

He said the FNM took.
advantage of the “genuine con-
cerns” of the Police Staff Asso-
ciation “for a purpose other
than for what was intended”
and in a way FEMIDISCERE of
times past.

“We saw it in 2007. ois see

“This is straight out of the

FNM: MITCHELL SHOULD HAVE APOLOGISED T0 POLICE

THE FNM reiterated last night that “rather than responding to
the incoherent ranting and raving,.and self-serving and paranoid

: . comments by Fox Hill MP.Fred Mitchell,” Mr Mitchell should have
apologised to the Police for his attack on the IDICEHY, of the Spe-

cial. Intelligence Branch.:
“Now that he has’ vetiaed to so do,” said the FNM statement,
“the Police Force and Bahamians fully understand that Mr. Mitchell

is standing by his earlier attack on the fine men and women who’

énsure our security on a daily basis. While this is unfortunate,

"this is his choice, a choice that members of the Force will no doubt

remember.”

‘Political operatives’ and ‘criminally-miinded’

_-POLICE Staff Association & deidoat
Dwight Smith during an interview with the

: press after the February 23 demonstration on:
Bay Street urged policiats to stop. politi-
cising issues,

He was defending his Force from a politi-

cian’s criticism of the worth of police reports,
which were used in-another case to decide the
suitability of a person for a high office. Mr
Smith was also smarting under the criticism
of how “over prepared” police were when
they arrived. on Bay Street for the BTC
demonstration. Jt would have been irre-
sponsible — after a union leader had declared
that a “small Egypt” was needed on Bay

* Street to protest the sale of BTC — if police
had not come fully prepared — with its
canine unit and all. The unionist was accused.

_of instigating social unrest,.and'so the police
were ready.

Mr Smith pointed out that the type of
persons he saw among the crowd that day
made it necessary for the police to do their
job to ensure the safety of protesters and
observers. He said the police had difficulty:
with those participating in the protest who
‘had “nothing:to do with BTC,” but were
‘there “advancing political groups.” |

"We saw so many things that were going
on. I, for one, wondered if we were dealing -

. with a BTC situation or if we were dealing
with a political situation. For the life of me I -
‘could not understand what was going on,” Mr
Smith told the press.

The demonstration was said to have been
organised by the Committee to Save BTC,
but PLP members made a strong APPEAR:
ance.

Mr Smith said‘downtown merchants called
to complain about a group of young protest-
ers who were dropped off in the George
Street area. As they walked to the protest,

-merchants claimed. they stopped in store”

after store "causing a disturbance."

- "I walked there personally and saw them.
1 knew some of them and talked to them. I
heard them say, if they did not get paid there
is going to be problems. Thad to encourage
some of them to come out of thé stores. They
had no reason to go in the stores.

"They' were just being disruptive, : said
Mr Smith.

"My view is there were only a handful of
persons there who were really dealing with

BTC. If you were to speak to some of those « :

persons, they did not know why they were

out there. They did not know what they were
out there for. If we were to really do the due
diligence, we'll find a lot of them did not
understand what was going on," he said.

It was suggested that “political operatives”

had paid many persons — some if them!
: referred to by the police as “criminally mind-

ed’ — to demonstrate on Bay Street: As the
late Kendal dsaacs, QC, who refused his par-
ty’s request to lead.a demonstration, pointed
out, he would have been responsible for any
breach of the peace caused. by the demon-
strators. These “political operatives,” and

~ Rodney Moncur; who has.called for 10,000

demonstrators, should reconsider the:con-
sequences. And to help them understand

. their responsibilities the police should |

enforce the law — especially against persons

who would have paid these Gemous ators to ,

, create the disturbance. _ e
How can so-called responsible persons

encourage the~“criminally-minded” to create ©

social unrest and then demand that they obey

the law when their services are no longer -

néeded? We expect the police to protect res-
idents against these very same people. How-

- ever, when caught by the law they will look to

their political Paymaster: to save them from
prison.

Reminds us of the PLP. diection when
drug dealers were desperate that the PLP

. be returned to power. Rightly or wrongly,
true or false, there was the perception that .
~. this party was their ‘guardian. The call was

passed down the line — especially in
Eleuthera — to get the fast boats ready. As
soon as the PLP were elected the operators

expected to.be back in business. Some were |
so bold that they talked openly to our |

reporters, calling names of their political pro;
tectors.

We recall the talks that Magistrate Her-
cules and the late Sir Etienne Dupuch had
many years ago when they took their morn-
ing constitutional on Cayman’s Five Mile
Beach. Magistrate Hercules, a tough, no non-
sense magistrate, left the Bahamas after sev-
eral years here. His complaint was about the

_ political interference he had to suffer when

certain “criminally-minded persons”

appeared before him. It was more than he»

could take. 4

If we expect the police to be effective in
controlling crime, then this culture of: using
persons on the wrong side of the law-when it
suits. certain purposes, must end.

Distortion and
misinformation

EDITOR, The Tribune.

I read with amusement and
astonishment the article under
the headline Sir Cecil’s FNM,

. by Philip Galanis on page 4 of

the March 7th edition of The
Nassau Guardian, with amuse-
ment because of the number of
distortions, misinformation,
half-truths and outright lies,
astonishment, because with a
little investigative initiative, the
writer could have obtained the
correct information from a
number of sources, including
the clerk of the House of par-
liament. Let me start by inform-
ing Mr Galanis that Cecil and
the other dissidents, known as
and called the Dissident Eight,
never formed anything and the

. United Bahamian Party was

never disbanded. The UBP was
the official opposition in Par-
liament during the sitting in
parliament of the Dissident

Eight as members of the Pin-

dling-led PLP administration
and after their expulsion. You
see, Mr Galanis, they never quit
the PLP they were expelled
from the party after they con-
tested the 1971 by-election in

. Central Andros to fill the

vacancy created by the demise
of the late Clarence Bain.
“The FNM did NOT have
anything to do with the laying
of a foundation for the two-par-
ty governing process,.in fact
when the merger of the UBP
and the Free PLP-came about
there were three parties in exis-
tence, the PLP, UBP and
Labour and two that had dis-
banded — The Bahamas Demo-

cratic League, headed by the

late Sir Etienne Dupuch, and
the NDP headed: by. Paul

Adderley, that was the sole ©

domain.of the.PLP and the
UBP. The Free PLP was'never

a political party it was simply ©
* a grouping of politicians fol-

lowing a leader, nothing more
nothing less.

You, Mr. Galanis, refer to
them as freedom fighters, who
were they fighting and for

. whose freedom, may I ask?

You said that they had already
achieved Majority rule, please

. Mr Galanis, tell me on which

planet have you been all these
years, it could not have been
this planet called and. known as
Earth, for if it was, you would

' most certainly have known that
that animal known as Majority .

Rule came into existence

‘through the combined action

of the late Sir Randol Fawkes
and Alvin Braynen. The object
of Cecil and his merry band of

dissidents, was to defeat Pin- -

dling and the PLP, not freedom
for themselves or anyone else.
In order to do. this, they saw
the opportunity of getting into

bed with a party that they were-

constantly denigrating and ver-
bally abusing for years, as a
means to defeat their nemesis,
Lynden Oscar Pindling, hence
their efforts to distort the true

circumstances surrounding the

merger of the two entities. Pol-

itics‘'do make strange bed fel- .
_ lows, Mr Galanis, don’t you

agree?

‘You, Mr Galanis, like many
of your ilk are overlooking or
deliberately avoiding coming to
grips with the real issue. of the
Whitfield led confrontation
with the. PLP’s leadership, it
was simply a power play, noth-
ing more nothing less . It was all
about taking control of the par-

ty; but for all of Cecil’s compe-.

tency, he was always naive and
grossly underestimated his cun-
ning and crafty opponent. The
whole scenario was about greed
for political power and person-
al wealth. I am sure that you
Mr Galanis do not believe all
that hog wash spewed from the
lips of politicians and union
officials over the decades about
fighting for the people’s free-
dom and rights. The only rights
that they ever fought for were
theirs, their cronies and rela-
tives. Do not take my word for
that, just take a candid look
around you and see the cir-
cumstances of successful politi-
cians, union leaders, their rela-
tives, friends and cronies and

you will see for whom the fight -

, was all about.
When we are writing for the

- benefit of younger generations

and the electorate we should
‘try to be as accurate as human-

~ ly possible and avoid guessing

or publishing information with-
out assuring its accuracy. The
FNM came about not as a
vision of Cecil Wallace-Whit-

field and the dissidents, for I -

am sure that if he had ever got-

ten around to forming a party ~

. out of that group he would have
kept the moniker that he first
gave the group (Free PLP). °

The merger of the then’

opposition party in parliament
and the political grouping called
the Free PLP, came about from
a suggestion that I made to

* Cecikin the Lighthouse Club in

Central Andros after the polls
were closed and the votes
counted on the night of the by
Election in 1971. The whole
scenario is set out in my Mem-
oirs that will hit the market in
midsummer, where that and
scores of lies, half-truths and
misinformation are laid bare
for the world to see. After the
merger was effected, Cecil was
chosen leader and I co-ordina-

tor unanimously and given the »

task of coining.a name and slo-
gan ‘for the new entity and get-

' ting it in shape to fight the

upcoming 1972 general elec-
tions.
Iam convinced that the

majority of the dissidents were ~

_embarrassed by their. associa-
tion with the UBP, but saw it as
‘their only hope of survival in
the arena of Bahamian politics.
Needless to say that Pindling
wasted no time in adding to
their, dissidents, label of “trai-

tors” a second one of “Uncle °

Toms.” Given the reverse racial

atmosphere in the country at:

‘the time and the relentless cam-

paign waged by Pindling and «

the PLP at the. time, the
chances of any one of the eight
winning a seat in a black belt
area was less than a snowball
’ lasting in hell. They came to
_ the merger with the intention of

securing nominations in UBP.

safe areas; but exposed their
intentions prematurely and had
their efforts thwarted by me,
hence. their campaign efforts
for my expulsion from the par-
ty, that scenario is also fully
explained in my Memoirs.

a restaurant on George Street,
which was operated by Tiger
Finlayson. He, Cecil, coined the

and I coined the phrase “all
together,” the name lasted fora -
while before it was changed to
the Free National Democratic
Movement, as far as being all
together, Humpty Dumpty who

‘fell off the wall was.a joke to

what we looked like in a few
months time. Cecil can be given
credit for the tenacious hold
that he kept on the name; but
the members deserted him and
formed three more parties
before ending up back under
the umbrella of the FNM, they
were the BDP headed by Hen-
ty Bostwick, The SDP headed
by Norman Solomon and the |
FNDM headed by Kendal

Isaacs thus giving parliament
five different opposition par-
ties in less than five years. You
do not have to believe me Mr:
Galanis, check with the Clerk
of the House. They were 1)
FNM 2) BDP 3) SDP 4)
FNDM and 5) back to FNM.

To answer the question to your
readers, what were the charac-
teristics: of Cecil’s FNM? The
answer is very simple. It was
the same as those that caused
the parting of ways by the eight
from the PLP. It was greed,
backstabbing, dissension and
quest for power. Although
Cecil was the chosen leader, he
enjoyed very little, if any, sup-
port from the parliamentary
group and no loyalty at all. His
statement at a rally in St. Agnes
constituency during the 1972
campaign: “If the FNM wins
the election, persons found vot-
ing in more than one con-’
stituency, I will prosecute their
backsides straight to jail was

~ blamed for the FNM losing the,

election. In my opinion it was
not the cause; but the relent-
less campaign fought by the
PLP. :

No member of the Dissident
Eight dedicated ‘any time or
effort to creating the PLP,
when they came on the scene it

_was already created and in full

swing. H M Taylor, Cyril St.
John Stevenson, William “Bill”
Cartwright who is still alive and’

. forgotten by the party, is lan-

guishing in an old folks home,

‘and others, Had formed that

entity. When Pindling, Cecil
and the rest of the so-called
freedom fighters came along,

. they quickly usurped the lead-

ership of the party from the
founders and set about solidi-
fying themselves in leadership

- positions. When they attempted

it on Pindling in 1965 and 1970,
he beat them to the punch and
sent them into political obscu-
rity for a few decades. Nothing
changed when the FNM was
formed everyone including
Cecil who was a threat was in

Chairmin’s review of the unaudited results
For Quarter 1, January 31, 2081

RBC FINCO incurred a net loss of $1,813,097 for the three month period ended January 31, 2011
compared to a loss of $450,967 for the corresponding period last year, Results for the period were
negatively impacted by a 35% increase in provision for credit losses year over year; as the Bank
continues to be challenged by increasing levels of non-performing loans. We continue to encourage
clients to mect with their account manager te ace how best the bank could assist during these difficult

times.

Morigage growth continued fo slow as the loan ‘portfolio experienced modest growth of 4%, primarily
as a result of the weak economic conditions in the bank's markets of New Providence and Grand

Bahama,

The US recovery, which has been slow, has resulted in moderate improvements in the tourism sector
and stable construction activity inthe local economy, However, the median term: outlook remains

- unclear, Management is confident that‘as economic cenditions improve, non-performing loans and
the resulting provisions will. reduce to more historic levels, In this case RBC FINCO is well
positioned for continued ae and profitability. :

As oil prices go up again,
what now for the Bahamas?

By LARRY SMITH



SO HERE we are, two years

after the last oil shock, and-

prices are over $100 per barrel
again, with some forecasters
saying they could pass the 2008
high of $147 a barrel that sent
everyone scrambling to cut
energy costs.

Already we are hearing the

.usual cries for government

relief. And those cries will only
get louder as higher prices filter
through to’gas pumps, electric-
ity meters and store shelves.
But in our case, there is very
little the government can do
beyond providing short-term
consumption credits — and that
comes at a cost to BEC's ‘sol-
vency. .

Worldwide, fossil fuel con-
sumption subsidies amounted
to $312 billion in 2009, com-
pared to government support
for renewables and biofuels of.
$57 billion. A subsidy is any

‘government action that lowers

the cost of fossil fuel energy
production, raises the price
received by energy producers,
or lowers the price paid by con-
sumers.

A recent report by the Inter-
national Energy Agency, the
Organisation for Economic Co-
operation and; Development
and the World Bank points out
that subsidies impose an unsup-
portable fiscal burden on gov-
ernment budgets, encourage
wasteful consumption, exacer-

: bate price volatility by blurring
_ market signals, and undermine
_ the competitiveness of renew-

ables and more efficient energy
technologies.
And this overlooks a num-

_ber of other measures that sup-

port fossil fuel production or
consumption — such as tax
expenditures, under-priced

‘access fo public resources, and
the transfer of risks to govern- -
’ ments via concessional loans or

guarantees. Nor doés it take
account of the social costs of
pollution and environmental
degradation.

In the absence of reform,

-experts-say; spending: on fossil ‘
fuel subsidies.is. likely to. reach. :.
* $600 billion in 2015, or 0.6 per
‘ cent of ‘global gross domestic’

product. By contrast, a com-
plete phase-out of consump-

‘tion-related fossil fuel subsidies

would cut global energy
demand by-5 per cent.

The alternative to fossil fuels
like oil and coal is a range of
new technologies that produce
power from non-polluting
renewable sources like the wind
and the sun. And globally, the
outlook for these technologies
is promising. — with growth
rates that now rival that of ear-
lier technology revolutions like
telephony, computers and the
Internet.

Recently, the researeh’ and

consulting group, Clean Edge,

projected that the market for
wind, biofuels and solar photo-
voltaics, which totalled $140 bil-
lion in 2009 and grew 35.2 per
cent to over $188 billion last
year, will grow to about $350
billion over the next decade.
Current investments in these

‘technologies far surpass what
‘ many thought were possible

just a few years ago:
For the
distributed solar and wind pow-

er technologies are reaching /

cost parity with US wholesale
electricity prices in‘some mar-
kets. By 2020 solar PV.systems
will be cost-competitive in 47
states for residential customers
and more than. 35 states for
commercial customers. And
wind power has ranked near
and often ahead of natural gas
as the leading source of new

. generating capacity in the US.

What will the energy sector

first time in history,



look like a decade fren now?
Clean Edge offers the-fdlowing

. projections in its 2011 research

report:

1. Solar and wind rescurces
will contribute more than a
quarter of electricity getera-

- tion capacity in dozens of US

and global markets. .

2. Explosive growth in he :

electrification of transportatitn,
with millions of EVs on tle
road in the US, China, Japa
and Europe.

3. Compact fluorescent light ..

bulbs (CFLs) will be replaced
by even more efficient solid
state light-emitting diode
(LED) technology.

4, A major drive to create
low-cost, competitive green
buildings that produce more
energy than they consume. |

5. Waste streams will become
a common feedstock for energy.
production.

_6. The integration of natural
gas and'renewable energy will
enable a relatively smooth tran-
sition away from ‘dirty energy
sources.

"Our assessment, 10 years

‘into tracking this sector, is.that

clean energy remains one of the .

strongest and most vital sectors
reshaping the global land-

“scape;" Clean Edge concluded.

_ commercial relations with inde-
pendent power producers.

_ So where does the Bahamas

stand today in all this; as oil -

prices move up again?

Last year, Fichtner, the gov-
ernment's German energy con-
sultants, produced a roadmap
for reform of the Bahamian
energy sector: Topping the list
of recommendations was
amending, the Electricity Act
and passing a new. Renewable
Energy Act.

Besides reserving power.

- thing over 250 kilowatts), the
Electricity Act blocks access to

the grid and does not allow for

Fichtner's report recommends
abolishing the bén on third par-
ty generation, proyiding-for grid
access through pover purchase
agreements, and ‘ransferring

responsibility for wate-to-ener-

N

gy initiatives to the Ministry of
the Environment. .

To encourage custoner gen-

eration of electricity using

ner recommends a newlaw to
regulate net metering « net.

let'customers feed excess \lec-

- Under net\metering, con-

- Sumer generation is paid for at

the retail tariff level: But from

‘BEC's perspective the power

fed into the grid using this
method displaces only the cost

‘of fuel, without taking into.’

account other overheads. So

‘BEC prefers the net billing

approach, which requires two
meters per customer — one
tracking power into the grid
and the other tracking power
drawn from BEC, with the
power fed into the grid paid for
at a lower rate.

The new law would also
enable feed-in tariffs for medi-

um-scale generation plants ,

LOCAL
authorities worldwide are pro-
moting responsibility for sus-

tainable economic develop- |

ment.

The Sixth Commonwealth

Local Government Conference

. being held this week in Cardiff,

Wales is concentrating on the
expansion of healthy local
economies that support the tax-
base of the central government
and budgets of local authori-
ties.

Minister of State for. Lands
and Local Government Byran
Woodside is representing the
Americas and heads a 16-per-
son delegation at the confer-

. ence which runs until Saturday.

The conference follows up.

on the success of the Grand
Bahama conference held just
two years ago.

“The Bahamas hosted the
Fifth Conference in Freeport

in May 2009 and that confer-.
ence was hailed not only a suc-..

cess for the Commonwealth
Local Government Forum but
as having attracted the largest
number of participants,” said
Mr Woodside.

“It was a huge economic
boost for the island of Grand
Bahama.”

Minister Woodside’s presen-
tation will define the role of
local government in energising
. local economies and.delivering

the Millennium Development .

Goals.

Government

“An invitation has also been
extended to the Bahamas to
report on the Local Govern-
ment Junior Council Pilot Pro-
ject at the Commonwéalth
‘Youth Forum,” said Mr Wood-
side.

“On Thursday, September
16, 2010, the pilot project of
Local Government Junior
Council was officially launched
at the Susan J Wallace Com:
munity Centre in Freeport,
Grand Bahama and provided
young people with a voice in
the decisions that impact their
homes, schools, and communi-

ty. Students in the Pilot project
’ have networked with commu-
nity leaders, youth organisa- .

‘tions and ordinary members
from the community.”

Given the current economic
climate, the forum chose the
theme “Energising local
economies: Partnerships for

prosperous communities”. Del- .

egates will analyse case studies
and opportunities for local gov-
ernment practitioners to learn
how to create the right envi-
ronment for economic devel-
opment in their poms coun-
tries. °

All 54 members of the Com- -

monwealth of Nations will dis-
cuss strategies from setting
overall local strategic priorities,
to providing an enabling envi-
ronment and efficient services
for economic’ development to
flourish.

dren to your home away from home
which does not have a bed to take her
on the carpet? You left the comfort
of your béd and had sex with your wife

on the ground?”

“Yes I did,” Fraser replied. He
acknowledged that he had previously
testified that a pornographic video was
found in a box in his daughter’s room.

Mr Williams, however, directed him

to testimony by Detective Mark Bar-
rett who stated that two VHS tapes
and two discs were also found in his

- bedroom. Mr Williams contended that

that part of the officer’s evidence was
uncontroverted. Fraser stated, how-
ever, that no tapes were found i in his

. room. Mr Williams noted that the

complainant had alleged that Fraser
had attempted to get her to watch
pornography. Mr Williams also noted

that Detective Barrett had téstified’

that there were a number of suspected
semen spots found on his office carpet
and when these spots were pointed
out to Fraser he appeared shocked.

' “Was it because you had sex with.

the complainant and never thought
you would be found out?” Mr

Williams asked.
“That is not so, sir,” Fraser replied.
Mr Williams further directed him to

his own testimony in which he had

claimed that he had told the com-
plainant’s grandmother everything

regarding the progress of his sessions -

with her granddaughter. Mr Williams
claimed that ‘this contradicted testi-

“mony he had given in which he had

stated that he did not tell the grand-

- mother everything, but kept some

things confidential between himself
and the girl.

Fraser told the court that the com-
plainant’s grandmother lied when she
said that he never gave her a report
relative to the progress of his coun-
selling sessions with the girl.

Fraser also contended that prosecu-
tion witnesses had lied when they stat-
ed that his wife had said, “Honey, you

Mr Walliams Went on to ask Fraser:

“Don’t you think it looked bad for a
47-year-old man to be keeping com-
pany with a 16-year-old girl?” Fraser
replied: “I did not keep company with

her. It didn’t look bad because every-

said it is easy to see why per-
sons could be lured into: such
ascam. MY

Yesterday, a Tribune
employee turned-out.to be
just such a person.

While wishing not to be |

identified, the victim
explained how he was con-
tacted on Facebook by a Jen-

nifer-Osnuv, asking him to.

carry out such a survey at
Western Union.. —

Creating an account at First
Caribbean Bank, the young
man said he was contacted on
his cell phone by an unidenti-
. fied man with an “African

-wwoice” demanding-that he
_-withdraw. the $2,000 that had
been deposited and send it to

Amadi Kingsley, in Nigeria. :

The test question for the
transfer was ‘Who is the
greatest?’ with the answer,
‘God’.

However, with the employ-

é ee having a $1,000 limit on his

account he could only send
half of the funds on Monday.
Yesterday when he went to
send the. remaining balance
he was informed by banking
officials that he was involved
in.a scam and would be arrest-
ed unless he returned the
$1,000 he had originally sent.

According to detectives

-- from the Commercial Crime .

- Unit, this is a prime example
' ofa “kiting scam” as the orig-

_ inal $2,000 in all likelihood |

never existed. A kiting scam,
they explained is where per-

sons would intentionally write

_a cheque for a-value greater:

than their account balance

‘from an account in one bank,

which is backed up by other

‘bad cheques from other banks ,

for nonexistent money. As it

normally takes a few days for

serious abuse of government funds. ] understand that one
such FNM operative was hired as late as this week with
special budgetary measures and accommodations being

"CRO aA

made to ensure that he is paid. I think that is what the pub- |

lic is concerned about and that is what the FNM ought to
answer,” said Mr Mitchell. :

Edward Ellis, BIS director, confirmed a public relations
professional was recently. hired at BIS to work on special
projects. Sources clainied he is a known FNM supporter.

When asked about the potential conflict of interest, the
new BIS employee said: “I have no membership in the

FNM. I don’t work for them. Ihave never received any..

money from them. I am a professional marketer going to BIS
to do what I do best. I don’t mix politics with what I do. I
have always maintained a professional manner in how I
“operate.”

Mr Ellis was appointed director in October 2004. Under
his leadership, and formerly ‘as an employee, Mr Ellis said he
can vouch for BIS and say no such activity takes place.

“The BIS is the Bahamas government agency of record.
We do public relations for the Bahamas government. I
know of no incident where the BIS has done any public rela-
tions for the FNM, not since I have been here. ”

Sources claimed FNM related meetings are held during
BIS work hours, and BIS employees are engaged in devel-
oping slogans, ads, propaganda sheets for FNM officials, and
other party related communication functions. One source
said: “It is eay behind closed doors to blur the lines.”

However, BIS employeés yesterday. denied the existence
of such a link.

One, who formerly did work for the FNM, said: “I do not
do speech writing or ad writing for the FNM. I am not
engaged by the FNM in any way. I am not aware of the exis-
tence of a team of BIS employees that work on FNM relat-
ed propaganda. I would be highly surprised i that were
the case,” said the employee.

Bahrain king clamps down;
three dead as unrest spreads

MANAMA, Bahrain -
Associated Press

BAHRAIN'S king declared
a three-month state of emer-
gency Tuesday to quell a Shiite
uprising, as clashes spread
through the capital and sur-
rounding villages in a show-
down that drew in the region's
major powers and splintered
along its main sectarian fault-
lines. At least two Bahrainis
and a Saudi soldier died, and
hundreds of protesters were
injured by shotgun blasts and
clubs.
_ A force of more than 1 ,000
Saudi-led troops expanded to
defend the Sunni monarchy;
Iran and Lebanon's Hezbollah
denounced the presence of for-
eign soldiers; and Washington
feared for its main naval base in
the Gulf. Any compromise
appeared distant at best, with
the latest order from.Bahrain's
king and protesters' demands
for the royal family to be top-

‘pled altogether. - *

Doctors were: overwhelmed
by onslaught of patients at
Manama's Salmaniya hospital,
rushing the wounded into a
packed emergency room, forc-
ing many to wait in the halls.
Nurses held back ‘tears when
attending to injured young

_men, and doctors could barely

contain their anger.:

_"They were all shot from
close range," said Nabeel
Hameed, a neurosurgeon at the

capital's biggest hospital. He’

looked at an X-ray of the latest

‘patient; shot in the chest, and

added: "Yes, they do shoot to
kill.".

The state of emergency in
the U.S.-backed regime gives
Bahrain's military chief wide
authority to battle protesters

demanding political reforms.

and equal rights for the major-
ity Shiites. ,
At Manama's Pearl Square,

the symbolic center of their

revolt, thousands of protesters
were still in shock over the
atrival of the neighboring
armies when the state of emer-

gency was declared. Bahrain
said more Gulf troops arrived
Tuesday. Opposition leaders
have not yet announced their
next move.

"We are ready for anything,
but this protest started peace-
fully and it. will end peaceful-
ly," said Ali Hassan, a demon-
strator in the square. "We have
no guns, but we will resist by
remaining here as long as we
possibly can."

U.S. Secretary of State

. Hillary Rodham Clinton says

she prodded Saudi Arabia to
support a peaceful political

solution and stressed that "they ,

along with everyone else need

. to be promoting the dialogue"

between protesters and the
monarchy.

The intervention of more
than 1,000 Saudi-led troops
from several Gulf nations was
the first:major cross-border mil-

_itary action to challenge one of

the revolts sweeping across the
Arab world. The Al Khalifa
family has ruled Bahrain for
200 years. The family enjoys

- strong backing from other Gulf

states and the United States,

fearing Iran's expanding influ-

ence.
Several of the injured

. claimed Saudi forces opened

fire between A'ali and Buri,
two villages south of Manama.
"T heard the sound of the

' ni affairs"
-ambassador to Bahrain was

bullet flying and after that my
arm felt like it was falling off,"
said Mohammed Abdullah
Hassan, 18, who was shot in the’
left elbow. "I saw blood and I
realized the bullet hit me." ;
Mohammed Abdulla Maki
al-Nasem, whoa was shot in his
right knee, said he was driving
with friends between the two
villages when they were’
attacked. He said he saw sey-

‘eral military vehicles — some
flying a Saudi flag — moving

along an overpass and shoot-
ing at cars bélow.

"They saw us and just shot
at us," al-Nasem said.

Shiite power Iran denounced
the foreign intervention as
"unacceptable" and predicted

it would complicate the king-

dom's political crisis.
A senior Bahraini foreign |

affairs official, Hamad al-Amer,

called the remarks "blatant

and said Iran's

A fire broke out at a nuclear reactor
again Wednesday, a day after the pow-
er plant emitted a burst of radiation

that panicked an already edgy Japan.

and left the government struggling to
contain a spiraling crisis caused by last
week's earthquake and tsunami.

The outer housing of the contain-
ment vessel at the No. 4 unit at the
Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear complex
erupted in flames early Wednesday,
said Hajimi Motujuku, a spokesman
for the plant's operator,, Tokyo Elec-
tric Power Co.

On Tuesday, a fire broke out in the
same reactor's fuel storage pond — an
area where used nuclear fuel is kept
cool — causing radioactivity to be
released into the atmosphere. Tokyo
Electric Power said the new blaze
erupted because the initial fire had inot
been fully extinguished. '

About three hours after the blaze

. erupted Wednesday, Japan's nuclear

safety.agency said fire and smoke could
no longer be seen at Unit 4, but that it
was unable to confirm that the blaze
had been put out. Also Wednesday,

-Japan's‘nuclear safety agency said 70
percent of the nuclear fuel rods may

have been damaged at another Fukushi-

ma Dai-ichi reactor that was first strick-:

en last week, triggering the crisis.

"But we don't know the nature of

the damage, and it could be either melt-
ing, or there might be some holes in
them," said‘an agency spokesman,
Minoru Ohgoda. .

Japan's national news agency, Kyodo,
said 33 percent of the fuel rods at a sec-
ond reactor were also damaged.

Radiation levels in areas around the

‘nuclear plant rose early Tuesday after-

noon but appeared to subside by
evening, officials said. But the unease
remained in a country trying to recover

from the massive disasters that are.
believed to have killed more than -
10,000 people and battered the world's

third-largest economy.

The radiation leak caused the gov-
ernment to order 140,000 people living
within 20 miles (30 kilometers) of the

plant to seal themselves indoors to

avoid exposure, and authorities
declared a ban on commercial air traf-

fic through the area.

Worries about padinion rippled
through Tokyo and other areas far
beyond that cordon. The stock market
plunged for a second day, eoppne 10
percent.

Japan's nuclear crisis is spik-

away to suddenly stock up on
potassium iodide. Some key
suppliers say they're back-
ordered and are getting pan-
icked calls from potential cus-
tomers.

"Tell them, 'Stop, don't do
it,'" said Kathryn Higley,
director of radiation health

physics at Oregon State Uni- _

versity.

"There's a lot of mythology
about the use of potassium
iodide," added Dr. Irwin
Redlener, a pediatrician and

disaster preparedness special- —

ist at Columbia University.
"It's not a radiation antidote in
general."

The pill can help prevent
radioactive iodine from caus-
ing thyroid cancer, for which
children are most at risk in a
nuclear disaster.

Japan's Nuclear Safety
Agency has stored potassium
iodide to distribute in case of
high radiation exposure, and

the U.S. Navy is giving it to_

military crews exposed to radi-
ation as they help with relief
efforts in Japan. But govern-

say that Americans have little

"You just aren't going to

‘that, by the time it traveled
those large distances, could
present any risk to the Amer-
ican public," said Nuclear
Regulatory Commission
Chairman Greg Jazcko.

Other governments echoed
that warning.

"We do not expect any
health risk following the
nuclear reactor releases in
Japan, nor is the consumption
of potassium iodide tablets a
necessary precaution," British
Columbia's health ministry
told the public Tuesday.

In Russia, where memory
of the very different Cher-
nobyl disaster 25 years ago is
strong, media reports said
pharmacies in Vladivostok, a
major port just west of Japan,
had run out of the pills.

"The mass media tells us

es no threat. But people are a
mess," Valentina, Chupina, a
nanny in Vladivostok, said in a
comment posted on the web-
site of the newspaper Delovoi
Peterburg. She said people
don't believe the government
will warn them if something
goes wrong so potassium
iodide is being bought up in
the pharmacies.

‘JFK expansion

By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

The $68.5 million construction costs for the Airport Gateway
Project’ s Phase One “would be recouped in less than nine
years” through reduced gasoline and opportunity costs associ-'
ated with alleviated traffic congestion, the development’s Envi-
ronmental Impact Assessment (EIA) has projected. .

The EIA, conducted by Blue Engineering at the Ministry of
Works’ behest, said that based just on congestion on that por-
tion of JFK Drive between Gladstone Road and Tonique
Williams-Darling Highway, some $7:68 million in traffic con-
gestion costs per year. would be eliminated through widening the
airport access road from two lanes into a four-lane highway.

Explaining that this section of JFK Drive had been selected
for analysis ‘because it regularly became congested during
morning and afternoon peak travel times, the EIA said: “Based
on all motorist journeys taking an additional 20 minutes during
the peak hours, only a total of 584,000 hours per year is wasted

in congested traffic.

JFK expansion costs
‘recouped within 9 years’

per hour, this equates to $5.84 million. On aver-
age, vehicles in New Providence consume 0.75
gallons of petrol per hour in congested traffic.
The total petrol consumption equates to 1,684
gallons.

“Based on.an average cost of $4.20 per gallon,

this totals $1.839 million per year. “Total wasted ~

opportunity time costs and running costs there-
fore equate to approximately $7.68 million per
year.’

The EIA concluded: “Based on the construc-
tion cost estimate and land acquisition estimate,
the project will cost in the order of $68.5 mil-
lion. Therefore, based on the cost of congestion
at JFK Drive between Gladstone Road and the
Tonique Williams-Darling Highway only at the
present time, the project costs will be recouped in
less than nine years.

“Congestion costs will be recouped far sooner
than this, however, due to the fact that traffic
congestion would be worse over time and would
also be relieved on other roads (most notably
West Bay Street and Carmichael Road).” —

The EIA said the ‘do nothing’ option on the
JFK Drive expansion, between Windsor Field
Road and Bethel Avenue, was'not feasible given

the projected total average daily traffic (ADT) |
volume increase of an average 3 per cent per
annum until 2040.

“This rate is higher in the earlier years (4 per
cent) and lower in later years (close to 2 per
cent),” the EIA added. “It is estimated that in :
2012 there will be approximately 12,905 vehicles :

“per day Laie on JFK Drive, with 27,329 in }

2040.
“Tt is also estimated that there will be a signif-

35,000 vehicles per day, but based on the i
jected traffic usage growth rate of 3 per cent BS Sr
year, its capacity could be exceeded by 2055, the :
KIA warned. , :
“While some 20 acres of forest will be removed :

NIB is of the view that

There has been a “slight

“Normally when we find

that contributions have not

Calling on the Government
to provide some relief. for
affected businesses, in the
form of Business Licence, real
property tax and Customs
duty exemptions, the former
Chamber of Commerce pres-
ident said the Ingraham
administration was effective-
ly asking companies.in these
areas to “take the brunt of
this, suck it up and bear the

cost of construction” in return ’

for upgraded road infrastruc-
ture.

Mr D’ Aguilar said his laun-
dromat at the junction of Fox
Hill Road and Prince Charles
Drive will be the fourth of five
locations impacted by the
New Providence Road
Improvement project, follow-
ing on from his Robinson
Road/First Street; Robinson

Road/Minnie Street; and Sol-’

dier Road/East Street loca-
tion. His outlet at the Blue

Hill Road/Carmichael Road:
intersection is also set to be ©

affected shortly, meaning five
of his total nine laundromats
will suffer. | :
“Superwash may be big
enough and strong enough to
survive this, but there are a
lot of businesses not big
enough and strong enough to
Mr D’Aguilar
told Tribune Business. “The
Government is coming across
as uncaring. The message
from them is: ‘It is what it is;
suck it up. It’s the-cost of

doing business’.
'. “J don’t think anyone’

objects to where we’re going;
it’s how we’re getting there.
We’re very appreciative of
this infrastructure project that
is going to create roads that
are wonderful to drive on. But
the question is: Can you sur-
vive the pain and agony you

have to get. through to get.to~

the promised land?”

Irritating

He added? “It’s irritating’
that it’s just'‘happened this

way, That whole stretch
between Robinson Road and
the Mall at Marathon has
been ongoing for ages and
ages. It will destroy a whole
heap of businesses. I’m sur-
prised business has survived

on Robinson Road for as long ©

as it has.

“It would be good for the
Government to-give people a
bone - some. real property tax
relief, Business Licence relief

- while this is under construc- _
tion, even Customs duty relief

in the affected areas.

“But, basically, the Gov-
ernment is asking businesses
in these communities to take
the brunt. of this, suck it up

"and bear the cost of construc- -

tion in the belief that we will

‘get a wonderful road in six-

12 months,” Mr D’ Aguilar
said.
“Speed is of,the essence, in

‘and out, and what frustrates

people is that there are so
many instances where getting

in and out in an expeditious .

manner has not been the
order of the day. It takes them
a long time to do what they
promised to do. Although
they start off saying it will

take two. months, it takes ©

them too long.”

The former Chamber pres-
ident said businesses in the -

Prince Charles area that is
being impacted by the road-
works had left a Town Hall

Meeting at Dame Doris John- —
son High School on-Thursday_
night “with the understand- - |
ing” that the Ministry of |

Works would continue to dis-
‘cuss with the main Argen-
tinean contractor, Jose Cartel-
lone, “the minimum amount
of road closure necessary to
complete the works”.

The three options under
discussion then were a com-
plete road closure; closure of
one lane, as it is now; or keep-

ing both lanes open and
switching them between the

north and south side of Prince
Charles Drive as work pro-
gressed.

Most

businesses, Mr

D’ Aguilar said, wanted the.

latter option to be taken, but
he added that “the Ministry
of Works, the Permanent Sec-
retary and the powers that be
firmly believe there is no way
we can do these roadworks

since they began last week. :

among those represented at :

Nioshie Bourne, owner of :

Between last week and this :
week our business went down. :
at least 80 per cent. Only our :

tomers will come to us. We :
knew we would suffer some :

run I think these roadworks :
will be good for us, but we :

Donald ‘Masekenuba,

: some business going in Grand Bahama.

“We need particular attention from the

: Ministry of Tourism, which to date has not
: been as helpful as it maybe ought to have
: been in terms of promotion of the tourism
: product.”

Mr Turnquest said Grand Bahama often
“gets lumped in with Florida for the most

: part” by external tourism marketers, and
: the island needed its “own individual atten-
? tion” from the Ministry of Tourism to play
: up its attractions and characteristics, and
? obtain its own brand identity.

“T would like to see the Ministry of

: Tourism become more empowered locally

to do certain creative things, and focus on
Grand Bahama with its own budget to get
it done,” Mr Turnquest told Tribune Busi-
“It’s going to require a lot of invest-
ment in the product, a lot of investment in
people to bring them up to standard so we

? can go out and market.

“Our situation has not, happened just
because of the recession and external issues.

that will cause visitors to come back. We
have to pull up our own socks, retrain and
get back to business. This is a Grand
Bahama issue and we have to take our own
responsibility and role in that.”

Niche

Looking ahead to how Grand Bahama
could compete and find its own niche in

' the tourism world, Mr Turnquest told Tri-

bune Business: “I think that our competi-
tion, is not necessarily the Bahamas. We
cannot compete with Nassau, Abaco and
Exuma, which have their own attractions,
charm and characteristics that we don’t
have in Grand Bahama.

“Our competition has to be Florida and

‘West Palm Beach. We have to look at what

attracts people there and do them one bet-
ter. I think our hotel rates are basically too
high. We’re a high cost destination, but

have to do something about the cost of get-
ting here and the cost to stay here.

“We have to look at the product, what
we have to offer, and price ourselves to
give us an opportunity to be competitive.
Right now, I don’t think we are competi-
tive.”

Our Lucaya Beach and Golf Resort

which, if granted, would take
the latter’s dealer margin to

said: “They’re going in the

“First is,the high taxes the

that the oil companies, through ©

THE TRIBUNE

or apartment dwellers
and those of us who are

surrounded by more
concrete than soil it is espe-
cially rewarding to grow.
shrubs in large containers
that soften the structures
they embellish. Even if you
have a large garden, there are
the front steps and back patio
to beautify.

Probably the most popular con-
tainer shrub at the moment is the
arboricola, a dwarf schefflera that
often has variegated leaves with yel-
low and ivory markings. Arboricola
is often used for hedges but is per-
fect for a specimen pot. It can grow
in either full sun or half shade and
the ornamental leaves are aug-

mented by a display of berries in.
late winter and early spring. Arbori- |

cola is slow growing and is not very
demanding when it comes to water
and feeding.

If it is flowers you want you may
wish to try thryallis, a small shrub
that produces clusters of small star-

like yellow flowers for most of the...

year. It grows to four or five feet
and is perfect for containers.

If you like blue you may wish to
try plumbago. Even better, puta
container of plumbago near to a
container of thryallis and experi-
ence the coolness of yellow and blue
in combination. Plumbago can be
stragely but can be. pruned judi-

‘ ciously to keep a rounded shape. *
One of the most spectacular of,

flowering shrubs is bougainvillea —

but be careful. The. type of.

bougainvillea suited to container
growing is B. glabra.that is usually a
bluish-mauve in The Bahamas. It
has a tree-like growth and smaller
leaves than the’ regular B.
spectabilis, the type of bougainvillea
that sends up long canes and is
totally unsuitable for containers.
There is a selection of dwarf
bougainvilleas from Australia called

‘bambino and these would be per-

fect:

Desert rose is a wonderful con-
taifier candidate that only needs
watering about once a week. If you
are able to choose your specimen
make sure it has a large, bulbous

bottom. This shows that the plant-

has been grown from seed. If there





~



is no bulbous base then the plant
was grown from a cutting and is not
as sturdy. Desert roses bloom
throughout the warmer months but
even when without flowers they
have a dramatic shape and inter-
esting foliage.

Perhaps you would like a pair of
fairly tall evergreens to accent your
portico and this can be achieved
using Norfolk Island pines. I am
sure many readers.are surprised at
this suggestion. After all, the Nor-
folk Island pines we see regularly
are 50 or more feet tall, but do not
panic. The Norfolk Island pine has
a wonderful disposition and: grows
according to the container it is in.
Put it in a 10-gallon container and it
will to five or six feet. If you need it
larger, just re-pot it in a bigger con-
tainer.

Another pleasant quality the Nor-
folk Island pine possesses is the time
between waterings. Instead of
watering often you can let your pine
dry out considerably. In a 10-gal-

lon container you only need to’

water once every two weeks. ‘The
Norfolk Island pine is fine,in cap-
tivity but if you decide to transfer it
to the open soil of the garden it will
become a very tall nuisance.

Some fruit trees can'be grown in’

containers. One of. the most
amenable is feijoa or Cattleya guava
or strawberry guava. The leaves are
small, dark green and glossy and the
fruit is borne in mid.simmer. ~
Key lime can be grown in a con-
tainer but tends to have straggly
growth. Two better citrus choices
are calomondin and kumquat. For

‘these, choose large containers that






will allow for bushy trees and lots of
fruit. The calomondin is-one of the
most attractive of-citrus trees and

would deserve a place in the sun |

even without fruit. The elongated
fruits can be eaten skin and all but
also stay on the.tree as ornaments
for a long time.



ENTERTAINMENT

Those Florida orange trees you
see in presentation packages for sale
in Miami International Airport are
not sweet oranges but kumquats.

- Kumquats are handsome shrubs and

produce plenty: of small orange fruits

that are very very sharp and sour.

Even though they look like’ minia-
ture oranges they should be used as
lime for consumption. They stay on
the tree- even longer than
calomondins and are very orna-
mental.

There you have it. If you live in a.
‘concrete enclave you can still grow

shrubs for beauty or rer food. Or

; both.

THE TRIBUNE



























The:Trinidadian rapper, who also grew
up in Queens New York, garnered much
hype and attention in 2007 when she
released her first mixtape “Playtime is
Over”.

A year later.she dropped.another mix-.
tape “Sucka Free” which was presented
by Young Money, CEO Lil Wayne. With'
these releases, anticipation for this new

* voice heightened even more.

She was like the new “it girl” of fashion.
She took the entire industry by storm and
what played to her success was the fact +
that there were no female rappers, with
the exception of Trina, making any noise

. inthe industry at the time.” 2

- It was interesting to see a fresh face

making her way in such a male dominated |

field. She has step out of the box and —
holds her own all at thesametime.
Nicki'Minaj has evolved so. much since
‘her early years. When she first came on
the scene she portrayed more of a bad girl
. persona. But then little by little a more
polished, calmer, Nicki faced the cameras.
Some call the raptress “fake” because

of the change in her style and appearance. |

When she first started in music industry
she did not have the wigs or crazy cos-
tumes. But truth is change is inevitable
and if Nicki stayed the same and tried to
market that “bag girl persona” like the
rest of the female rappers she would have

: been less interesting and very boring. The

crazy wigs, out there costumes, and the
animated Voices is what makes Nicki
Minaj the artist that she is. And her evo-
lution will not come to'a halt anytime .
soon so 4. cae aha
And the animated voices that most peo-
_ ple find appealing is also part of this evo-
lution of the Pink Barbie. Nicki Minaj
said in aninterview, that she has discov-

ered so much about herself and her talent.

The cartoon like sounds came after she
started playing around with her voice.
And she has tapped into a place that.
makes her such a captivating presence.

Nicki Minaj has-established herself as.a
successful business woman; and a very tal-°

ented artist mi

She has set the bar for female rappers
to follow and with her ingenuity and cre-
ativity she can make you look even if you
don’t want to! :

IT WAS 1999 that Rashad Mcphee also
known as Soulja Shaddy, realised that he was
interested in becoming a music producer.

Motivated by his parents, Rashad tells In Ya
Ear: " I'm a drummer at heart, I was making’
noise (music) on every and anything I could find
to hit on. I played at my pre-school graduation at
the age of four, if I can recall correctly. The first
song 'that inspired me was Puff Daddy's: ‘Cant
nobody hold me down’ that featured Mase:"

Going further, the producer recalled the first
group he had produced saying: " It was a group
that goes by the name of (IB - International
Ballers - Gambino, Sham, & Slim.) The experi-



- ence felt great and I felt on top of the world

back then."
‘" I started producing at about thirteen years of
age and I had my first song on the radio at age

fifteen, that was written, produced, engineered,

and mixed by me." .

Rashad has come a long way since his early
days, to date he has worked with well over ten
music groups and about thirty to forty artists, he
confirms.

When asked if producing can be a difficult -
task for him, he says: "Well I think-once some-

thing is in you and you have a passion for it, it
isn't really difficult, so I would have to say no."
The twenty two year old says he have plans to

‘ be in the producing business for as long as he -
lives, "It is what I breathe, and what I live to do,
I'll probably retire at age eighty God spares," he |

said.
In recent years, Rashad has worked with
artists such as: "Najie Dun, Sammi Starr, Sosa

_ Man, M-deez, Alexandria Christie, Jah Cure,

Queen Ifrica, Shawn Storm, Lisa Hype, i-octaine,

_ Christian Massive, Ricardo Clarke, Cazna

Finzs, Daddi Whites, Foots, Chase, Sluggz,
Porter Da Poet, Bonez, Beezy, Tracey aka Tap
- Just to Namé a Few."

_ He says his favourites would have to be Najie_

Dun, Alexandria Christie, Sosa, M-deez,Sam-
mi Starr, Chase and Foots.

Rashad. says: " I would like to work with
Sketch, El Padrino, and a few more from Grand
Bahama, but I basically want to work with every-
one and anyone with a positive attitude who
the art seriously. Internationally, I would like to
work with my favourites, Dr Dre, Eminem, Jay-
z, Timbaland, Drumma Boi, Kanye West."

Offering advice for people wanting to start
in the producing field, he says: "The key to being
anything and to be good at it is to be passionate
about it, and to be a good producer is to study all

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 16,

A MYRIAD of jewelry shops,
knock-off bags, and endless inex-
pensive “Bahamas” t-shirts that all
start to blend together are what the
average Bahamian perceives as

_ downtown Nassau’s identity in 2011.

What-most-may not realise is Bay
Street is really comprised of a sea
of low cost, non-indigenous and in
some cases illegal items. What's
worse is this artificially constructed
identity greatly overshadows the cul-
turally active and resurging art scene
that’s reclaiming downtown more
aggressively than a category 5 hurri-
cane.

The good news is Walk and Talk
Art Tours.can teach you to recognise
and appreciate this cultural revolu-
tion — all you need to do is open
your eyes and see downtown Nassau

in a vibrant new light.

Come explore... On Saturday,
March 19 at 10am and lpm Down-
town Art Tours will be executing
two Walk and Talk Art Tours that
guide participants on a walking jour-

ney through the history and future of

of the day at the Wyndham Nas-

sau Beach Resort on Sunday
March 6th,,as scores gathered for the
Evolution fashion showcase. The | —
event paid homage to three of The
Bahamas’ prominent fashion icons —
Sabrina Francis, Rachel Turnquest-
Garcia and the late Jeffrey Taylor.

Up and coming Bahamian Design House
ILashan gave a commanding performance at
the event which featured other notable design-
ers:including April Burrows, Jovette House of

_Couture and the late Valda Duncombe. Tak-
ing cues from Mother Nature, the aptly titled -
Gaia (pronounced g’ ya) combined rich
colours with organic shapes, textures and pat-

terns.

Using spectacular combination of satins,

silks, charmeusse, chiffon and taffeta,

ILashan’s collection of evening gowns and
cocktail dresses embodied a timeless yet sen-

sual feel.

“My goal with this collection is to give the
modern. Bahamian woman an outlet to tap
into the goddess within herself,” said Indira
Moss, founder and designer of the ean

label.

ABOUT THE DESIGNER

The Bahamas got its first glimpse of Ms
Moss at the annual Heart Ball in 2010,
where she presented the Sir Victor Sassoon
(Bahamas) Heart Foundation with a life-
sized replica of its Red Dress pin. Less than
a month later she showcased one.of her first

collections, Renaissance Women, at ‘Pretty -

in PINK: I’m a Survivor’ - a photo exhibition
in aid of the Sister Sister (Breast Cancer)

‘Support Group held at the Hilton in Febru-

ary. In April she débuted her first full line at.
home aptly.called Sundial.

-Excelling at the art from a young age, Ms
Moss graduated with a bachelor’s degreein
fashion design with a minor in accessory
design from the Savannah College of Art
and Design (2008) in Savannah, Georgia.
After coming back to New Providence, Ms.
Moss signed on as a volunteer for Islands of
the World Fashion Week working closely
with the designers of the 2009 showcase.

Her love of fabrics and textiles is an insa-
tiable passion that is now her life’s work and

. the only direction for this young designer is

36-member swim team selected for Se

By RENALDO DORSETT |
Sports Reporter

tdorsett@tribunemedi. net.

THE Bahdmas Séimiming Federal
tion officially released the roster of
its team scheduled to. compete. in the
XXVI.Carifta eight Champi-
onships.

A 36-member team was selected to ‘
compete in the region’s most high pro-,

file meet for juniors, set for April 23-
26 in Bridgetown, Barbados.
Each member of the team surpassed

Carifta qualifying times for their

respective events.
Andy Knowles is the head coach

~ and he will be assisted by Lucas Leite ’

and Matt Spencer.
Patra Albury is the team manager

-and the chaperones are Cecile Greene,
‘Lyn Evans, and Keith Lloyd. Dr

Kevin Bowe is the team doctor.

"We are taking a full squad. We
have some new. kids that will compete
in international competition for the
first time. We have a few age groups

‘that are quite weaker than the others
$0 we are just going down there-to try

and get as many points as we can,"
Knowles said.

"I think we are looking at trying to
focus on kids just swimming personal
best.times at the meet. We are in dis-
cussions right now with the federa-
tion on how we can improve our Carif-
ta performances. There are quite a

‘few recommendations which will

hopefully be in place for next year.
But right now at this point our focus is
to go down there and improve on per-
sonal best times and we will see what
happens with the medals and the
points." \



HEAD COACH: Andy Murray.

Knowles said he looks‘toward the

~ youngest group of swimmers to have a

great impact-on the team's perfor-
mance and noted that the early nam-
ing of the team will be beneficial to the

training regimen of.the athletes over

the last month.

"Most of the time the new kids are
in the younger age groups. These
groups always'step up and really doa
lot better than their entry times going
in so I'm looking for them to have a

really good showing. The young age ~

group kids are very fast but they still
have lots of improvement to do," he
said.

"Swimming always demands the
entry forms at least a month before
the event. So we needed to. pick the
team maybe a bit earlier than we
would like to. All the coaches will be
pushing the kids very hard over the
hext few weeks and perhaps tapering

the gold medal at the Central

American and Caribbean Games
in July, knew that it was a match .
that could have gone either way. —
“Tm proud of the way Nikkita
and I played,” said Grand Bahami-
an native Russell. “First, we were
‘nervous, but we got into the match
‘and we knew that we had nothing
to lose,.so we just went out there
and played aggressive and it was
postive?! ;
‘Fountain noted: “Unfortunate-’
ly, we made it a little closer than it
needed to be. We got down to the
end in the tie-breaker and we had
‘match point, but we played a little

back a bit heading into Carifta."

At the.end of the four-day compe-
tition in 2010, which was hosted at the
National Stadium in Kingston,
Jamaica, the Bahamas closed out the
XXV Carifta Swimming Champi-

onships with a productive finale and |
rose in both the point and medal’

standings.

The Bahamas finished the meet
third in the point standings with 603
points and fourth in the medal count

with a total of 37 (eight gold, 13 silver

and 16 bronze).

Trinidad. and Tobago were again
the overall winners of the event with a_

total of 1,011 points, the only team to
break the 1,000-point mark. They fin-
ished more than 300 points ahead of
their nearest competitors.

The twin-island nation also domi-
nated the medal haul with 94 (46 gold,
31 silver and 17 bronze).

Guadeloupe finished second in the
points standings with 707 points and
third in the medal table with 47 medals
(8 gold, 19 silver and 20 bronze).

Martinique was fourth in the point
standings with 545 and fifth in the
medal standings with 26 medals (8
gold, 7 silver and 11 bronze). _

Barbados, who finished second in

' the medal standings with 48 medals

(20 gold, 21 silver and seven bronze),
were just sixth in the total point stand-
ings with 488.

Fountain was referring to the tie
breaker where they had taken a 9-

nents rallied to pull even for. the
third time.

With a chance to g0 up again,

Fountain hit a criss-cross volley

went up 10-9. Then Russell hit out

a long volleyball return at the base-_

line as their opponents celebrated.

q When asked what was going



on-in her mind in the close tie
breaker, Fountain quipped: “I
can’t tell you. I can’t say that.”

But she did say: “I missed
one back hand volley to take
us up break point and we
missed another volley on an
overhand that came off my

serve. We were right there. We

just have to learn to lose it. We
really had it though.”
Likewise, Russell said in the
tie breaker when she was serv-
ing at 9-7, she wanted to “go

_ for it, but I miss hit it. I wasn’t

sure that she was going to get it,
but she got it back and it was a

tough shot.”

Fountain and Russell broke
their opponents twice in the
first set - the first at 3-2 and
then again at 3-3 - and they
went on to secure the opener.

In the second set, the two
teams held serve until Borwell
and Dekmeijere got the only

. break when Russell missed an

easy over-hand shot and Foun-
tain double faulted on her final

‘serve to force the tie-breaker.

Fountain, however, said that
while they were able to get in as
a wild card entry into the main
draw of the doubles, they hope

that next year they can be
afforded the same opportunity
to do so in singles in the main
draw.

“This gave us a little expo-
sure and the young players got
a chance to see such a high lev-
el of competition,” Russell said.
“It was just good.”

Like the field of players in
the tournament, this is the first

time that Borwell and Dekmei-_

jere have been in the Bahamas
and they were all quite
impressed with what they’ve
seen, especially Paradise Island.
“We love it,” they both said.

LONDON (AP) — With

Comaneci, the Romanian
who scored the first perfect

golds at the 1976 Montreal
Games at age 14, said she
looks forward to coming
‘ back next year to watch the
gymnastics and soak up the
atmosphere.

Organisers are promising

"The athletes enjoy the

the 100 heats there were
93,000 people there. It

Lewis donned a yellow

“construction hat and jacket

to tour the 80,000-seat |

- track and field events will be

contested in 2012. Lewis won

four gold medals at the 1984

"I'm along jumper that ©

“Everyone says: fastest man

in the world.' Yeah, I was
that, too. I was able to win
_ four in a row in the long

jump. I take the most pride
in that. To come back and
be the first one to actually
win back-to-back and then

do it four times, it was just .

tremendous."

The sport's greatest ath-
lete since Lewis is Usain
Bolt, the. Jamaican sprinter
who swept the 100, 200 and

_ 4x100 relay at the 2008 Bei-

jing Olympics in world-
record times. A year later,
Bolt again set world records

in the 100 and 200 at the.

world championships in
Berlin.
Can Bolt defend his

. Olympic titles in London?

"The opportunity : is
there," Lewis said. "It's very,
very difficult, as I know, to

win back-to-back at the:

Olympics. So many things

have to happen for you to -
win once; let alone twice, so -

good luck to him."
But Lewis is cheering for

American sprinter Tyson °

Gay, who beat Bolt in Stock-
holm last year and has the
second fastest time ever in
the 100 (9.69 seconds)
behind the Jamaican's 9.58.
"I think its going to be a
tremendous race," Lewis
said. "I went.to two Olympic

. finals and you never know

what's going to happen\
Usain has run tremendously.
He's the best in the world
right now, but Tyson's going

to give him a run for his

money."

2012 London Games clock stops Pa 17 hours

By ROB HARRIS —
AP Sports Writer



LONDON (AP) — A giant
clock:counting down to the
2012 Olympics stopped on

Tuesday, less than a day after -

’ being started in London's
Trafalgar Square.
The digital clock, which i is

made by Olympic sponsor-

Omega, was stuck at 500 days,
7 hours, 6 minutes, 56 sec-
onds.

"We are very disappointed
that it has stopped working,"
Omega said in a-‘statement to
The Associated Press. "It's
obviously a technical fault and
we've got people working on
it now." ,

Four British Olympic

champions — rowers Pete
Reed and Andy Hodge and
sailors Iain Percy and Andrew
Simpson — unveiled the steel
clock on Monday amid
pyrotechnics beneath Nel-
son's Column to mark the
500-day countdown to the
opening ceremony on July 27,
2012.

"The clock underwent rig-
orous testing’ by our experts

before the launch," Omega
said. "This is very unusual and

‘we are hoping to have it back

up and running soon. '
London 2012 chairman
Sebastian. Coe had said the
clock would serve as a "daily
and hourly reminder to every-
one who visits Trafalgar
Square that the countdown to
the start of London 2012 has
well and truly begun and that
the greatest show on earth is
soon coming to our country."
The Paralympic countdown

on the other side of the clock,

which is 27 feet high and 16
feet long, is still working.

The -clock's failure wasn't
the only Olympic glitch on

Johnson

Atlanta’s:
110-85
rout.

ATLANTA (AP)-— Sport- -
‘ing a new look, Joe Johnson’
scored 36 points — 28 in the .

first half — and the Atlanta
Hawks romped to a 110-85
victory over the Milwaukee
Bucks in a makeup game
Tuesday night.

Johnson donned a black >

headband to protect the back

‘of his scalp after undergoing a

procedure to treat a skin
infection. It must have helped

his shooting touch, too. He ©

made six straight 3-pointers
on the way to the highest-

scoring half by an Atlanta.

player this season..-

With Johnson firing. fady ;

the Hdwks went on a 20-0'run

that started at the end ofthe.

first quarter and extended
into the second. The Bucks

missed 10 straight shots —
.plus turned it over four times

— during a scoring drought
of nearly 6 minutes.

Andrew Bogut led Mil-
waukee with 21 points. ‘That
wasn't nearly enough against

Johnson and the Hawks, who

shot a staggering 63 percent
(46 of 73).
The teams were making up

. aJan. 11 game that was post-
poned after an ice storm ©
struck Atlanta. What a wasted ©

trip for the Bucks, who fell -

behind by .as)many as..24'..

points in the first half.

The Hawks were bolstered
by the return of All-Star cen-
ter Al Horford, who had
missed the previous game
because of an ailing left ankle.

1. Four, hearts. By bidding four,

hearts, you imply a five-card heart

At the same time, the heart rebid
identifies a holding of at least six dia-
monds, since if your two suits were
equal in length, you would have bid
hearts rather than diamonds at your
second turn.

Although your hand is very prom-
ising for slam purposes, you cannot,
safely bid more than four hearts. The
impetus must come from your part-
ner, whose responses so far have
promised nothing.

2. Pass. It may seem dangerous to

pass with a singleton spade, but it.
would be even more dangerous to.

-bid again. Introducing your four-card
heart suit on the four-level is

chancier than hoping partner has suf- _

ficient length and/or strength in
spades to stop the opponents from
taking the first five tricks. Your best
shot is to rely on the nine tricks in
notrump you already have right in
the palm of your hand.
3. Five diamonds. There is no
~ need to risk notrump with this layout
— you have only eight certain tricks
at notrump — when you are virtually
assured of 11 tricks in diamonds. Just
about all you need from partner to
make five diamonds is the ten of
hearts.

It would be wrong to bid four |

hearts; if partner has. only three
hearts and three or fewer diamonds,
he might elect to pass and leave you
in a contract that is not as good as
five diamonds would be.

4. Four notrump. This is not
Blackwood but rather a raise in
notrump asking partner to keep on
bidding if he has any values at all.
Four notrump:is a powerful bid,
since it indicates a holding of 10
tricks even if partner has nothing.
Obviously, he is permitted to pass.

_ A Message from June Hall
Show Chairman and President of the .
~ Bahamas Kennel Club

Welcome to the B.K.C’30" Annual Dog Show & Obedience Trials.

This year the show is being held on the grounds of Bahamas Food Services Glad-
stone Road..It will be our third venue since 1981.

' The first Bahamas Kennel Club show was a local show was held at ahi Q.E.Sports
Centre. We had prestigious Judges for both Breed and Obedience Trials. The Sport
of Obedience has grown, as in 1982 we only had dogs compete for Novice titles,
but today we now have dogs competing up to the Utility Level. We have introduced
Rally Obedience and have competitors’ up to the Excellent level with one Bahamian
Dog receiving am RAE. Title (Rally Advanced Excellent) this year. Working with our
two Obedience Partners the Nassau Agility and Obedience Dog Club and the Abaco
Dog Training Club we hope to offer competition Agility Trials next year.

We moved to The Botanic Gardens in 1982 and our show was held there through
9010. We are grateful to Bahamas Food Services for allowing us to move the show
~ to their grounds. As Obedience has grown in popularity, the need to have larger
regulation rings and easier transport of equipment moved us to look for a site which
had a larger open area for the competition rings.

Our first International Dog Show was held in 1982. We had many U.S dogs, some

owner handled many shown by Professional Handlers. We (the Bahamas Kennel

Club)thought it would be a great opportunity for Bahamians to see top quality dogs —

and breeds they had not seen before. Today we have handlers bringing dogs that
have supported our shows for over 20 years. Recently one of these exhibitors Betty
Umberto Wells came to Nassau to give a handling/grooming Work Shop Joyce Han-
son and Kevin Thomas continue to support our shows bringing Championship qual-
ity dogs to the show every year. Thank you! We appreciate your loyalty.

The early shows brought many tourists to our shores they came on cruise ships.
It was called ‘THE BOAT CRUISE’.

_The Bahamas Kennel Club was formed inl978. The first President was Mrs Mary
Ann Jones. It was formed to create a Dog Registry for Pure Breed Dogs, however we
also wanted to’strive for the better care and control of all dogs. This meant as the
shows continued we introduced a Speciial Class for dogs whose responsible owners
had spayed or neutered them. This class continues to grows larger each year.

As you look through our supplement you will see many great dogs and their
handlers.

Showing a dog is a special partnership between the handlers and their dogs.

Our show celebrates this unique bond between man and his canine companion.

As Chairman-for most of these shows I would like thank the many people.over
the years who have helped and supported our shows.. All the Show Committees par-
ticularly the Secretaries (like RitaHall who has kept me on the right track for more
than 25yrs!) Lorraine Lightbourn, who has been our announcer since 1981. I would
also like to give our sincere thanks to Jon & Carol Mett our Obedience Judges.this
year, who coritinue to give us workshops, seminars and judge our January Obedi-
ence Trials and provide so much support. Carol helps us to believe in ourselves and
our dogs, not an easy task! We would like to thank our show sponsors, advertisers,
corporate donors ,our exhibitors and the general public that attend the shows.

Avery special thank you to the Ministry of Agriculture and Marine Resources who
assist us in providing the import permits for overseas exhibitors.

This year we have a special thank you for our Sponsors PURINA PROPLAN and
Richard Curry who have brought The Purina Agility Team to demonstrate for us -Do
Not miss these exciting demonstrations!

Again thank you and may the best dog win!

President of the Bahamas Kennel Club : ¢
