Injured tourists ‘forced to
pay for treatment, transport’

By AVA TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter
aturnquest@tribunemedia.net

TWO paramedics have been
suspended following claims that
they forced injured tourists to
pay for treatment and transport
to hospital.

The actions of the two-mem-
ber crew are now being investi-
gated by bosses at Emergency
Medical Services.

It is alleged that two visitors
injured in a traffic accident
were the victims of extortion —
having been told they would
have to pay up-front for treat-
ment and transport.

The tourists were said to be
riding a scooter at the time of
the accident, but it is not known
if another vehicle was involved.

EMS director Dr Avery
Hanna confirmed, the crew has

been suspended pending fur-
ther investigations.

Dr Hanna said the Public
Hospitals Authority (PHA),
which oversees EMS, takes the
allegations “extremely serious-
ly” and has forwarded the mat-
ter to the disciplinary commit-
tee.

“As with any accusation, we
have to ensure the appropriate
investigation takes place,” she
said.

The director said the inquiry
is in the advanced stages and
will be finished in a matter of
weeks, but declined to give fur-
ther details until the final report
is complete.

According to Tribune
sources, the amount in ques-
tion was $400, but Dr Hanna

_ said she could not confirm or

deny this.
She also declined to confirm

MAN DIES AFTER BEING STABBED

A 28-YEAR-OLD man died in the Princess Margaret Hos-

It is understood that there was an argument when three
men attacked him at about 8pm. He was stabbed multiple
times. His name was not available at press time.

Debate on
Baha Mar
work permits
put off again

By ALISON LOWE
Tribune Staff Reporter
alowe@tribunemedia.net

A parliamentary debate on
the 8,150 work permits for Chi-
nese and other foreign labour-
ers to work on Baha Mar was
again postponed yesterday as
executives for the company
have yet to come to a final
agreement with Scotia Bank
over the multi-million dollar
loan that stands between them-
selves and access to the $2.5 bil-
lion offered by a Chinese bank
to build the resort.

Prime Minister Hubert
Ingraham gave this update yes-
terday in parliament.

It was during the last meeting
of parliament on September 8,
that the Chinese labour reso-
lution — which calls for parlia-
ment’s approval for the entry
of an “unprecedented” number
of foreign workers into the
country over the life of the con-
struction of the Baha Mar
resort — was first proposed to
be debated.

However, at that time the
prime minister stated that he
felt it would be more appropri-
ate for the debate and vote on
the labour matter to wait until
Baha Mar and Scotia Bank
have come to an agreement on
how to resolve the outstanding
loan. The Export Import Bank
of China, which has agreed to
fund the $2.5 billion Baha Mar
project, has said it will not
release those funds until the
Scotia loan has been paid off
by Baha Mar.

Mr Ingraham told parliament
on September 8: “It is expected
that all outstanding matters will
be resolved within the next two-
week period.”

He revealed that Baha Mar's
principals were set to meet with
Scotia executives in Toronto
the following week and sug-
gested yesterday and today
would therefore be a “more
appropriate time” to carry out
the debate.

But yesterday he advised that

‘the company had not been suc-

cessful in concluding the matter
during the two week period and
continue to negotiate.

“T am advised the parties
have made progress and are
continuing their engagement
but there is no final agreement.
If any is reached today we can
happily come back tomorrow
and have the debate. If not, we
can come back if and when the
parties agree,” said the prime
minister.

PROGRESSIVE LIBERAL PARTY LASHES OUT AT MINISTER OF FOREIGN. AFFAIRS

Symonette accused of lecturing’
straw vendors arrested in the US

By PAUL G TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter
turnquest@tribunemedia.net



THE Progressive Liberal
Party blasted Minister of For-
eign Affairs Brent Symonette
yesterday for “lecturing” the
nine Bahamian straw vendors
arrested in New York City ear-
lier this week.

As Mr Symonette, who is
also the deputy prime minister,
is currently in New York to
attend the United Nations Gen-
eral Assembly, the PLP peti-
tioned him to visit with the
straw vendors, stating that he
cannot “come off as politically
impotent” in this situation.

“The Deputy Prime Minis-
ter Brent Symonette’s remarks
about the arrest of the vendors
in New York is unhelpful.
When (the Bahamas’) citizens
are in trouble they expect that
the government will come to
their assistance. Thankfully, the
technocrats in Foreign Affairs
know what their job is: to inter-

vene to ensure that there is due ©

process, that they are being
properly treated and have the
benefit of all the rights to which
they are entitled.

Help

“Now is not the time to lec-
ture people about what they
ought to be doing but rather to
seek to help in a bad situation.
From what is in the public
domain, firstly it is being said
that the Americans conducted a
surveillance operation in the
Bahamas which led to the
arrest of the individuals. A fur-
ther question is: Was the
Bahamas government aware of
the surveillance operation and
did it give its blessing to this
operation against its citizens,”
the PLP said in a statement yes-
terday.

“Tt is being said that the
Americans conducted surveil-
lance operations in New York
which led to the arrest of the
individuals. The PLP notes with
great interest and alarm that
the Federal Agents and other
US agencies apparently did not
arrest the merchants who sold
the knock-off luxury goods to
the Bahamian straw vendors.
It stands to reason that if there
are no merchants selling illegal
goods then there would be no
buyers. Will Minister’ Brent
Symonette raise this matter
with the US authorities? In
light of the government’s han-
dling of the recent case involv-
ing the ‘Barefoot Bandit’, will

the government peruse a mea-
sure of reciprocity with the US
government,” the party asked.

The PLP said that they are
deeply concerned about the
fate of the Bahamian straw ven-
dors, their rights to due process,
and the inability of Bahamian
consular officials to contact
those persons who were arrest-
ed.





“Instead of lecturing the ven-
dors, the deputy prime minister
ought to take time out from his
schedule while in New York to
ensure that the vendors are
secure and that their rights are
protected.

The PLP intends to send an
investigative team to find out
for ourselves what the situation
is in New York,” the party said.

THE LATEST scuttlebut making the

rounds of the political rumour mill is.

that by offering his resignation to Prime
Minister Hubert Ingraham, Environ-
ment Minister Earl Deveaux admitted
he was wrong to accept the invitation of
Prince Karim Aga Khan to fly in his
helicopter to the prince’s private island
in the Exumas. According to rumour
mongers it is an admission by the Min-
ister that the helicopter ride compro-

mised his ability to make an objective —

decision on the Prince’s application for
permission to develop his island in the
Exuma Land and Sea Park.

Those persons spreading the rumour
are either completely ignorant of the
Westminster system of parliamentary
government, or they are maliciously
exploiting the ignorance of the Bahami-
an people.

There are many reasons why minis-.

ters resign from Cabinet. We had an
incident as recently as March when
Branville McCartney resigned as Min-
ister of State for Immigration. Mr
McCartney said at the time:that in. the
forefront of all his issues and emotions
was his “feelings of stagnation and the

inability to fully utilise” his “political:

potential at this time.”
“We are facing tough times,” he said,
- “but I confidently believe that the nation
has been mobilized by Mr Ingrdham
and the FNM and rallied for a great
national effort. I have learned why this
> Prime Minister and Leader of the FNM
is the most successful leader of our par-
~ ty. And it is because of this that I say, I
have'’no sympathy with and will give no
credence or comfort to those who would
want to use this resignation to under-
mine his leadership of the FNM and/or
The Commonwealth of The Bahamas.”

That was one reason for a resigna-
tion.

One must remember that when a
member is elected to parliament, he is
elected by the people. However, when
he is made a Cabinet minister it is a



RICEDOT ate (242) 352-9348

Deveaux’s offer does not mean guilt

position given by the prime minister —
a position that can be taken away at will
for a number of reasons. Should any-
thing arise in that ministry that could
embarrass the prime minister or his gov-

ernment, then it is the action of a gen- '

tleman to go back to the prime minister

and offer to resign. It is then up to the ©

prime minister to accept or reject the
offer.

In offering his resignation, Mr
Deveaux did not admit that he had sold

his integrity for a helicopter ride, he just -

did what was expected of him in the
ancient tradition of the Westminster
“system. Unfortunately there are not

"many gentlemen left among us today,

_ This was the same tradition followed
by the late Sir Kendal Isaacs when he
relinquished the leadership of the FNM
after he had led the party to defeat in
the 1987 election. However, Opposition
leader Perry Christie did not step down
as party leader when he lost the gov-
ernment in 2007 to the FNM. He was

* not duty bound to do so and he chose
not to follow tradition.

In the case of Mr Deveaux, Prime
Minister Ingraham could hardly punish
him for a practice that has been widely
used over the years in all administra-
tions when an investor wanted a minis-
ter to inspect a project for which he
needed permission. It was customary
for the investor to provide the trans-
port, which is what the Aga Khan did in
the case of Mr Deveaux.

_ And the. Prime Minister certainly
could not frown on Mr Deveaux after
this practice had been turned into wide-

spread abuse under the PLP govern-

~ment with investors — with issues
before cabinet and various government
' departments — even making their. air-
craft available to fly PLP candidates
around the islands during the 2007 elec-
tion.
We know that the PLP are flier) for
political bones to chew on, but it’s time
to drop this one — it’s going nowhere.

THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK

“Have Faith knowing
tomorrow will hold the
blessings of God”

SUNDAY SERVICES
7:00am, 9:00am, 14:15am





























Minister Earl
Deveaux and
the Exuma Land
and Sea Park

EDITOR, The Tribune.

First, let me begin by noting
the support and respect that I
have held for Minister
Deveaux over the years. In
my opinion, he is one of the
best Cabinet Ministers in the
current administration.
Unfortunately, he is not
judged against many top per-
formers, given the current
make-up of Cabinet, however,
I find him to be a hard work-
ing and dedicated individual.
Time will be the ultimate
judge of whether my opinion
is correct. ,

Secondly, .let me deal with
the now famous helicopter
ride. I could care less if this
helicopter flew the Minister

‘back and forth to. work each

day, as long as the taxpayer
is not footing the bill. Further,
for now, I do not think that a

. helicopter ride can influence

the Minister’s ability to make
a profound decision on behalf
of the People of this Coun-
try. I would like however to
put some other Cabinet Min-
isters on that helicopter, fly
them to Bell Island and leave
them there.

Thirdly, I do believe that

‘Minister Deveaux made a bad

judgment call in using the

‘helicopter ride for him and

his family to travel to Abaco,
which had nothing to do with
the Bell Island project. It
should have been clear that
this would create a political
firestorm and the Minister
should have taken a charter.
However, to me this is not the
larger issue and I don’t feel
that he should be sacked for
it. The future has yet to reveal




Meas

letters@tribunemedia.net



whether the Minister should
be sacked!

Now to the larger issue and
that is Bell Island in the Exu-
ma Land and Sea Park, truly
one of a kind. Let us consider
a few questions:

e Who is Aga Khan IV? He
claims to be a descendant of
the Profit Muhammed and

the 49th and current imam of —

the Sia Imani Nizari Ismailis.
Are we serious about allow-
ing such a person to develop
an island within one of the
most beautiful land and sea

parks this country, has to-

offer?

¢ Do we really need a bil-
lionaire Islamic leader in this
country? How far will we sell
ourselves for the almighty
dollar?

e What are the long term
benefits of allowing this devel-
opment? A few jobs made
available to allow someone.to
rip up our National Park to
accommodate a yacht.

e Is this Park really one of
the oldest marine parks in the
world that provides a sanctu-
ary to bird and marine life?
If so, an idiot could say no to
its development without even
needing an environmental
impact assessment.

e According to The Tri-
bune (September 14, 2010),
when copies of documents
between the Ministry of The
Environment and BNT were
requested, and I quote, “the
file was taken away and made

the subject of a meeting.”
Why? Perhaps the Minister
could tell us.

e Why has BNT gone quiet
on the issue and now claim it
is too political? It is just as
well they remain quiet now, as
any comments will be over-
shadowed by the allegation
that they received a $1 mil-
lion donation!

e Why not devote the time
wasted on this project, on
time spent facing the chal-
lenges of our land fill? We
can help the environment,
save money, create jobs, and
create energy with this one!

Mr Deveaux, as a citizen of
this country, I humbly request
that you and your cabinet col-
leagues decline this project.
(We have given away much in
this country. I certainly under-
stand that there are develop-
ments that are necessary for
our economic development,
but please don’t destroy the
Exuma Park. And don’t
destroy it for someone that
we know nothing about.
Think about the long term
effects and the future of the
Bahamas.

And no, this is not an —
unbridled, knee jerk reaction!
It is the opinion of a Bahami-
an who loves the Bahamas.

The jury is still out on Min-
ister Deveaux and his cabinet
colleagues. I trust that they
will make the right decision,
so that history will ee them
favourably.

need to use this ramp nor
sees the need for anyone
else to either.

Thank you Montagu,
for repairing the Brown's
Boat Basin ramp. It is has

‘been in disrepair for far too

long.
Even though Mr Sands
appears to think that the
money. should have been
spent on the Montage ramp
instead, the two cannot be
compared. The estimates to

‘restructure the Montagu

ramp are in the millions, the
ramp at Brown's Boat
Basin, cannot even come
close.

While it has been argued

_ that it would be more eco-

nomical to remove Mon-
tagu's ramp altogether, the

_ constituency of Montagu

thinks that it is more hon-

‘ ourable to do the right thing |

by repairing it.

Most of us who are aware
of the times we live in,
and are feeling the reper-
cussions of these hard eco-



Tle hoe Village

nomic times, understand
that we do what we can,
with what we _ have.

' While funding is a big obsta-

cle for the reconstruction

_ of the Montagu ramp, it is

not the only one it has and
will face.

Perhaps since Mr Sands,
who would like to be per-.:
ceived as an authority on
this matter, should assist, -
rather then criticize.

True FNM's will, of
course; disregard this
rhetoric, we support our par-
ty and appreciate how hard
they work for the good of
our country. This childish
behaviour of taking your ©
ball home when you do not

able. Keep the fire burning

Ministry official: education system
should ‘inspire’ young people

By NOELLE NICOLLS
Tribune Staff Reporter
nnicolls@tribunemedia.net

MINISTRY of Education
officials say they do not want
to see a proliferation of “reac-
tionary programmes” to deal
with juvenile delinquency.

Olly Mae Knowles, assistant
deputy director of education,

. said there will always be oppor-
tunities for remedial pro?
grammes, but it is important
that the education system
“inspire” young people through
an “up-front” approach.

“What schools need to do,
and other agencies, is look at
how they can develop the learn-
ing potential of those students.
Underlying most behavioural
problems is a connection with
something the person feels they
are not doing well. They use
behaviour to disguise the true
problem,” said Mrs Knowles.

She said the Ministry of Edu-
cation works with a number of
altérnative education pro-

grammes (AEPs) for students
who display “unacceptable
behaviour” or cause “serious
disruptions” in class.

Programme SURE (Success
Ultimately Reassures Every-
one) and TAPS (Transitional
Alternative Programme for Stu-
dents) are two of the Ministry’s
main AEPs.

Mrs Knowles said they also
work with Urban Renewal,
church groups, the Hope Centre
Ministries and the national
Leadership, Esteem, Ability,
Discipline (LEAD) institute, as
well as others.

“Rather than going and
building more boys’ (reform)
schools,-we need to begin to

look more accurately at the

questions: Are we diagnosing
our children properly to under-
stand what is happening in their
social life? Academically, are
they connecting with what is
being taught in the schools?
“We are living in a time when
children must see the connec-
tion between what is being

Increase in special needs students
at Sir Gerald Cash Primary School

THE MINISTRY of Education noted
recently an increase in the number of special
needs students who have enrolled at the Sir

Gerald Cash Primary School.

As a result, the ministry said that it has tak-
en steps to improve the state of the facilities
that are provided for these students.

In a statement issued to the press yesterday,
the ministry said that it has provided a trailer
to the school grounds in order to accommo- —
date other students. However, the ministry
noted, some. media reports have suggested
that this trailer was intendéd for the use of

special needs students.

“These allegations are incorrect and untrue,”

the statement read.

“Just last week Desmond Bannister, Minis-



"MINISTER OF
EDUCATION:
Desmond Bannister

ter of Education, advised parents and admin-
istrators at the school that the special needs children would be
accommodated by combining the special needs classroom with
another classroom which was previously used for Spanish lessons.
“The minister has indicated that his position on the matter
remains unchanged, and accordingly, parents may be comforted by
. the knowledge that the trailer will not be used for the accommo-
dation of special needs students,” the statement read.

taught to them and what they
feel they need to know,” said
Mrs Knowles.

“It is like saying we should
build more prisons because
there will probably be more
children going to prisons.

“Why not put more energy
into preventing children from
going to prison? Let's get our
children to be critical thinkers,”
she said.

Some youth workers say a
preventative approach should
be a major part of the solution,
and they believe a “paradigm
shift” in the education system
is needed for that to happen.

Troy Clarke, president of the

national LEAD institute, said -

the solution has to encompass
much more than “teachers
teaching properly”.

Delinquency

“It is the education system
itself. Because-of the inadequa-
cies, the education system itself
is contributing to an increase in
juvenile delinquency, the pro-
liferation of at-risk behaviour,
the increase in criminal activities
by youth in our country,” said
Mr Clarke.

He said a “zero tolerance”
approach by schools is under-
standable, but “you still have to
provide an alternative to those
set of students who may be hav-
ing challenges as it relates to
being at-risk in the school sys-
tem, whether they are at-risk
academically or behaviorally,”
he said.

Pastor Carlos Reid, head pas-
tor at the Hope Centre, said
despite how much he speaks
about the influence of gangs in
schools, he believes youth vio-
lence is really about an “identi-
ty” crisis, stemming from what

‘children: are taught in school.
He said education-has to be ©

made relevant to the times and
the needs of people.

“Most of the fights is because
someone disses you. If you

realise that what another per- °

son says about you doesn’t have

to become your reality, then it.
wouldn’t matter. (The educa- -

tion system should) make us

‘feel good about ourselves so we

don’t think the only way we
have to get our two minutes of
fame is doing the bunny hop
down Bank Lane,” said Pastor
Reid,

Tn the meantime, Pastor Reid
said, “reactive programmes that
deal with intervention” are
essential because the problems

Disaster
onference
on Grand
Bahama



AT THE READY: Participants of a disaster preparedness conference
in Grand Bahama.

TO address the northern
Bahamas’ disaster preparedness,
US Northern Command
(USNORTHCOM) partnered
with the National Emergency
Management Agency (NEMA)
to participate in a disaster con-
ference on Grand Bahama this
week.

Partnerships such as those
between NEMA and
USNORTHCOM allow for
nations to draft plans and undet-
stand each other’s capabilities if
the need were to arise for a call
for assistance.

The aims of the disaster con- CAPTAIN Stephen Russell,
ference are to reinforce the con- director of NEMA.
cepts of disaster mitigation and
preparedness, and to strengthen
the relief, repair, restoration and



islands, and ultimately the syn-
chronisation of the method of
operating in all districts and com-
munities of the northern Bahamas
in the event of a disaster or emer-
gency incident.

The conference was officially E
opened by Don Cornish, adminis-
trator in the Office of the Prime

Minister.
Critical DON CORNISH, administrator
in the Office of the Prime Min-

Mr Cornish said the conference jgter, opened the disaster con-.
is being hosted at a critical time in ferance
our nation’s history as it relates ‘
to disaster management.

“While we have had our share of disasters of late, it has been



_ ours to‘count the many blessings we enjoyed, particularly during the

hurricane season when we were consistently spared the ravages of
a major storm,” he said.

Grand Bahama was hit by. three major hurricanes — Frances,
Jeanne and Wilma — in 2004 and 2005. Those storms and the dam-
age they inflicted, and the recent tornado in March reinforced
the importance of preparedness..““We have moved gradually away
from the notion that our greatest and only threat to our population
and environment is that brought by seasonal hurricanes.

“We are now fully cognizant:of the many. threats we face, par-
ticularly here in Grand Bahama where we have a very large indus-
trial plant, a major container and cruise port and an international
airport,” Mr Cornish said.

Disaster Management in the 21st century now employs new
concepts of weather tracking via Doppler radar, satellite and
barometers. It makes use of well analysed data and expert fore-
casting and prognostication. “We have come a long way, ladies and
gentlemen, from the village where the only news we got was from
some. wise person reading nature's signals instinctively in a tiny
Bahamian village and later on to our radio sets, rare as they were
in the early 20th century. It is in this new environment that we oper-
ate, where training and education and new strategies have been’
joined with new innovation and careful planning,” he said.

. “This environment demands that we remain on the cutting edge

~ of technological advances and keep abreast of forecasting method-

ology in order to protect the population.and properly. While much
of what we prepare for is the seasonal hurricane, we are ever
mindful that there are many other potential disasters that cannot
be seen in a vacuum and must never be understood as singular
threats in an isolated period.”

According to statistics, in the entire Caribbean Basin, which
stretches from the Leeward and Windward Islands in the east to
Hispaniola and Cuba in the west, the Bahamian islands have the
greatest frequency of cyclones. The Caribbean Hurricane Net-
work has reported that the hurricane capital of the Caribbean is
Abaco, with 18 severe hurricanes since 1851, which is an average
one hurricane every eight to nine years. Since 1994, Key West
and Nevis have seen the most severe hurricanes, Mr Cornish said.

GUINNESS Master Brew-
er Fergal Murray is visiting
Nassau to share his extraor-
dinary knowledge of the
world’s most popular stout.

His Tour of the Caribbéan
is part of the 2010 interna-
tional Arthur’s Day celebra-
tions, highlighting 250 years
of Guinness being the world’s
most famous stout.

The 300° strong local
Bahamian staff of Burns
House, including store and
administrative employees and
sales and marketing teams
were excited to hear about
Guinness “brand passion” in a
two-part series of sessions
hosted by Mr Murray.

He also visited an addition-
al 60 employees at Common-
wealth Brewery to talk, moti-
vate and conduct further

training on Guinness, a prod- —

uct they make daily for the
local market.

Fergal Murray has worked
with Guinness since 1983 and
his vast knowledge of the
brewing process and history
of the Irish brand has enabled

‘him to travel the world as its
ambassador.

His contagious passion for
Guinness stout has led him to
create “The Perfect Pour”,
and he demonstrated the five-

NIB - ‘Good first day for Drug Plan’

THE National Insurance
Board reported that the first
day of business for the
National Prescription Drug
Plan has been a good one.

Claims were being success-
fully adjudicated and, formu-
lary medicines dispensed
throughout the islands at 35
private pharmacy locations
and 61 public pharmacies, the
NIB said.

“It’s going smoothly. Bene-
ficiaries are flocking to par-
ticipating pharmacies in New
Providence and being served
and we’re receiving good
feedback. We’ve also had per-
sons throughout the Family
Islands being able to access
prescriptions with no major
problems or concerns,” Tami
Francis, NPDP manager said.

However, Mrs Francis said
that ACE cardholders and
doctors must be aware of
some guidelines concerning
how prescriptions must be
written in order to be accept-
ed.by the NPDP comput-
erised system.

“The main issue that is
causing a problem for some
cardholders is that some pre-
scriptions do not have a doc-
tor’s name written on them.
For example, instead of a doc-
tor’s name the prescription
may have ‘Dr PMH?’ written
on it, but the system will not
accept this. All prescriptions
must have a doctor’s name
written clearly on them,” she
said.

She added that only doc-
tors from an approved list of
physicians are authorised to
prescribe medicine for the
National Prescription Drug
Plan and only conditions cer-
tified by a physician will be

Tony, Singh, local brand
manager for Guinness and its
parent company, Diageo, said:
“Diageo International recog-
nises that the Bahamas is one
of the stand-out markets for
Guinness in the region, local-
ly producing a superior prod-
uct and consistently provid-
ing a positive community mes-
sage. Fergal Murray has trav-
elled the world teaching peo-
ple about the rich history of
Guinness and we are happy
that the Bahamas has been
chosen to share in the inter-
national celebrations.”

Arthur’s Day, a combina-
tion of music-related events
and international celebration,
was created in 2009 to com-
memorate the brand’s 250th
anniversary.

Legacy

It honours the legacy of
Arthur Guinness, the pioneer
and philanthropist who signed

’ the 9,000-year lease on the St

James’ Gate Brewery in 1759
and introduced the Guinness
brand to the world.

The celebration benefits the
Arthur Guinness Fund, which
supports social entrepreneurs

acknowledged by the system.

“For example a cardhold-
er may be certified for hyper-
tension but not for diabetes.
In this case he or she can only
receive medicine for hyper-
tension but not for diabetes
because a physician has not
certified that condition,” Mrs
Francis said.

ing with almost 2,500 ‘A’s,”
she said.

Echoing to a recent

speech by US President.

‘Barack Obama, Mrs
Farmer said: “It isn’t always
the smartest children. who
do well and excel, it’s the
children who work the
hardest, and here we have a
set of students who repre-

She pointed out that the
students’ success would not
be possible without the sup-
port of parents, guardians,

families, communities and .

teachers.

BIC introduces new long distance calling card

THE Bahamas Telecommu-
nications Company has intro-
duced a new long distance calling
card that uses voice over internet
protocol technology.

The calling card, called “Talk
it Up”, allows residents and vis-
itors to make calls at consider-
ably lower rates than any other
existing landline technology,
according to BTC.

The company said “Talk it

Up” offers lower rates to more |

than 450 countries, including the
United States, Jamaica, Haiti,
Canada, and the UK. The intro-
ductory rate is 25\ cents per
minute to most countries for the
next 90 days.

Marlon Johnson, vice presi-
dent of marketing, sales and
business development, said: “We
are cognisant of the fact that we
are in the era of technology,
where something is new today
and old tomorrow. It is our
responsibility to ensure that our
residents and visitors are pro-
vided with the most modern and
reliable service.

“The need to stay connected is

second nature. This is evidenced

af PN

by the 300,000 plus mobile sub-
scribers, the scores of VIBE
Unite users, and the thousands
of residents that use varying
forms of social media for infor-
mation and communication.
“One of our primary goals is
to ensure that in this era of tech-
nology, we are equipped to
deliver products and services at
lower prices to our customers.”

FROM pageone 90 Chinese labourers ‘to tuild road’

cheaper than if it had got it
from other international mon-
ey-lending sources, it is not this
but rather the long-term impact
on the Bahamian economy and
unemployment levels that
should be a priority.

He suggested that since it is
the government itself, and not a
private sector entity such as
Baha Mar that is planning the
project, it could easily choose
not do involve the Chinese
labour, but rather make the

project Bahamian-led.

“The question for me is
whether or not this government
considered the option of giving
Bahamians the work even
though the cost of executing
the contract would’ve been
higher than with the Chinese
concessionary loan, because the
impact of hiring Bahamian
workers would’ve had a greater

impact on the economy of The ,

Bahamas.

“We (the PLP) have con-
cluded that we cannot support
this resolution on that very
basis,” said Mr Christie, adding
that it would not appear there is
any work involved in the con-
struction of the highway that
would be beyond the technical
capacities of Bahamian con-
struction workers.

Prior to the PLP’s objection
to the resolution, Minister of
State Zhivargo Laing, speaking

injuries were, or whether the
incident occurred on West Bay
Street as alleged.

Dr Hanna insisted that if the
investigation uncovers evi-
dence that the allegations are
true, the PHA will take the
“necessary or appropriate”
action — which may include
dismissal.

A source with knowledge of
the Emergency Medical Ser-
vices said this is only the latest
in a series. of allegations
against staff.

“The public don’t know
about it, but there are a lot of

allegations of stuff going -

down.

“Tf these claims are exposed,
maybe someone will take a
closer look at what is going
on,” the source said.

While touring the grounds
of the Princess Margaret Hos-
pital, Mike Edwards, a para-
medic from the United States,

ongoing investigation at the
government-run hospital.

_ Unlike the Bahamas, the US
government does not afford

national health care, and Mr.

Edwards noted that emer-
gency medical services in his
country were compensated by
an individual’s private health
insurance.

He added: “A lot of people

gency services will do is just

for the government, told of how
the “concessionary” Joan for
the highway would be provided
to the government from the
Export Import Bank of China —
the same state-owned bank that
has agreed to finance the Baha
Mar resort project on Cable
Beach — on better terms than
it could get anywhere on the
“open market.”

The project will see 6.2 miles
of John F Kennedy Drive
“dualised” into a four-lane car-
riageway that the government
says will ease traffic congestion
which is projected to worsen on
the road corridor going for-
ward, and make travel between
the airport and downtown Nas-
sau quicker, safer and more
attractive, among other bene-
fits.

Mr Laing noted that the
loan’s two per cent interest
rate is around five per cent
lower than the government
would have been able to bor-
row the money for elsewhere,
and over the 20-year life of the
loan will save the government
around $30 million in interest
compared with what it would
have paid on-a higher-rate
loan. :

“These terms could not be
found anywhere else in the
world,” said Mr Laing. Only
interest and no principal pay-
ments will be paid during the
first five years of the loan.

Mr Laing added: “It is not
new news about how Chinese
concessionary funding brings
with it Chinese labour.”

‘The Minister advised that
around 20 to 30 Chinese
labourers would. be involved in
the investigative preparatory
phases of the project, seven to
ten in management staffing, 80
for the installation of high volt-
age cables, 20 for light instal-



lation and 60 for water main
set-up.

“In total, 200 or so Chinese
total over the period of the
development — not at any one
time,” said Mr Laing.

The Chinese labour involved
in this project would be entire-
ly separate and in addition to
the 8,150 work permits the Chi-
nese are seeking for Chinese
and other expatriate labourers,
to come to The Bahamas to
help construct the Cable Beach
resort.

It is not entirely clear when
the labourers would begin
arriving to participate in the

‘highway project, although the

government anticipates that
construction may begin in Jan-
uary of next year, and be entire-
ly completed by October 2012.

The 200 Chinese expected to
work on the road and other
connected utilities and land-
scaping-are to be joined by an
estimated 100 Bahamian
labourers.

First word of the Chinese
offer to fund the highway pro-
ject was given in September of
last year when .Wu Bangguo,
Chairman of the Standing

Committee of the National
People’s Congress in China —
one of the country’s top offi-
cials — visited The Bahamas
with a large delegation.

While the main news coming
out of that visit was the frame-
work agreements signed by the
Chinese with the developers of
Baha Mar, the government also
signed a preliminary agreement
on the almost $60 million high-
way loan during this visit.

The PLP issued a statement
last night in which it claimed
the government’s decision to
go with the Chinese funding
and subsequent labour compo-
nent “re-enforces a decidedly |
anti-Bahamian posture” the
opposition party alleges to have
been taken by the government
when it comes to hiring.

The statement highlighted
the contracting of Jamaican
Vinette Graham-Allen as
Director of Public Prosecutions,
the decision to place into retire-
ment numerous senior police
officers, and the alleged hiring
of a foreign judge’s wife as a
prosecutor in the: Attorney
General’s Office as other evi-
dence of this.

arrested at JFK airport on Sat-

with designer imposters on a
flight to Nassau on Saturday.
They were charged in a New

York district court on Monday |

with conspiracy to defraud the
US Criminal Code by way of
trafficking counterfeit goods for
commercial advantage or finan-
cial gain after a six-month inves-
tigation into the import and
export of counterfeit luxury
goods led by the US Department
of Homeland Security and Immi-

Their next hearing is expected
to take place in October.

In the meantime, counterfeit
bags are widely available to shop-

was pleased with the purchase
that would have set her back
hundreds of dollars at the origi-

“T wouldn’t buy an original

expensive,” said the cruise ship
passenger who did not want to be

“But it does go with my purse
which is-an original Coach.

Ingraham was dismissive.

Mr Ingraham was in the process of leav-
ing parliament following the morning ses-
sion in the lower chamber yesterday at the
time the questions on the issue of Dr
Deveaux’s relationship with the Aga Khan,
which the Opposition has-termed “a conflict
of interest”, were put to him.

‘However, Mr Ingraham refused to pro-

tinuing on his way out of parliament.

Last Thursday Dr Deveaux told Island
FM radio host Patty Roker on “The Morn-
ing Boil” that he tendered his resignation to
the prime minister the previous Monday —
the same morning he saw an article on the
front page of this newspaper outlining how
he had accepted a free ride in the luxury
helicopter of the Prince Karim Aga Khan,
the billionaire leader of an islamic sect,
while having the Aga Khan’s application to
develop the island before the Environment
Ministry that he heads for consideration:

The prime minister, he said, rejected the
offer, and no other official statement was

made on the matter.

Dr Deveaux had admitted flying on the
12-seater helicopter to attend a film screen-
ing in Abaco before going on to Bell Island
— the island in the Exuma Land and Sea
Park owned by Prince Karim — with BNT
executives the next day. ‘

The Environment Minister has also stat-
ed he was “minded” to approve plans sub-
mitted by Island of Discovery Limited,
understood to be headed by the Aga Khan,
to dredge and excavate at least 8.8 acres of
marine sand flats, rock and vegetation for
two channels, 12ft and 14ft deep, to con-

BUT elections:

Mrs Friend said: “Please’
know that a protest has been
filed with the Bahamas Union
of Teachers Elections Commit-
tee and the Department of
Labour which is specific to the
transparent, just and fair

‘process of elections and not to

the success of any one team or
candidate. We do congratulate
candidates who were success-
ful and I would like to wish
them every success in the
future.”

Irregularities itemized
included: the integrity of bal-
lots, voting booths and the last
minute cancellation of two
polls,

Mrs Friend said: “A card-
board. box was used to secure
ballots for voting and transport.
The late opening of polls result-
ed in voters leaving without
exercising their right to vote.
Open voting occurred without
the use of voting booths and
members were allowed to enter
carrying campaign parapher-
nalia, sit, discuss and vote.”

Election officials were said

to have commenced sorting and
, tabulating since 7 am yesterday
‘and by midday were said to
have been inundated by the
sheer volume of ballots. With
all 15 positions of the executive
team up for votes, there were
40 candidates and nine sepa-
rate ballots.

The BUT has a total of 4,000
members and voter participa-
tion in this election was said to
have been more than 80. per
cent. Reports yesterday indi-
cated the Department. of
Labour was partly responsible
for the delayed opening of
polling stations.in New Provi-
dence on election day, however
labour officials have also denied
culpability.

A labour official said: “This
particular union has an election
committee which sets out — as
in their constitution — the con-
ditions for elections. The
Department of Labour does
not organise their elections, all
the law requires is for the min-
ister — and by extension those

from his department — to |

appear and supervise the poll.
That’s all we do — we supervise
based on their union’s consti-
tution.”

Philip Johnson, election
committee chairman, acknow]-

_ edged the late start at polling

stations, which he attributed to

his team’s inability to distrib-

ute ballot boxes in a timely
manner. .

Despite the slight tardiness,
Mr Johnson said he believed
the election process sent
smoothly with few hiccups or
reasons for concern.

Mr Johnson said: “The only
other thing I can think of is that
retirees were upset that they
were not allowed to vote. In
the past it was allowed but it is
erroneous — the constitution
does not allow for it. Only per-
sons who are in good standing
with the union three months
prior to elections are allowed
to vote.

His first time in the post, Mr
Johnson maintained he dis-
couraged any procedure that
was extraneous to the consti-
tution, regardless of whether it
was a formerly accepted prac-
tice. The ‘unofficial victors, Ms
Wilson and Mr McPhee, were
unavailable for comment up to
press time.

The official results are
expected to be released today.

Jets CB Revis out for Dolphins game

By DENNIS WASZAK Jr
AP Sports Writer

FLORHAM PARK, N.J.
(AP) — Revis Island will be
deserted for at least one
game.

New York Jets cornerback
Darrelle Revis will not play
against the Miami Dolphins
(2-0) on Sunday night because
of his strained left hamstring.

"I want to be out there with
them, but I can't;" Revis said
Wednesday. "I'm just going
to take my time and get back
to 100 per cent."

Revis did not practice, and
coach Rex Ryan said the All-
Pro would not even travel
with the Jets (1-1) to Miami.
Instead, he will stay back at

the team's facility to receive
further treatment on the ham-
string:

"He's itching to get back,"
Ryan said, "but it's too risky
of a proposition to put him
out there.'

Revis said he's getting pro-
gressively better each day, but
he and the team decided he
would not be ready in time
to play Sunday.

Revis was limited in prac-

his leg after Randy Moss

the locker room for treat-
ment. He didn't return and
watched the second half in
the trainer's room.

On Monday, Revis would
not rule himself out for the
Miami game, but acknowl-
edged that it could take him a
week or two to heal. He said
it would be the first game he
has ever missed at any level.

"I'm just relaxed," he said.
"I'm dealing with the ham-
string thing right now. There's
no point in getting emotions
in it. I'll just root my team on
and watch them win." -

Revis pulled the same ham-
string last summer and missed
two preseason games, and has
said that injury was worse. So,

to sit out the second half

as this week.

"I know from previous
hamstrings that if I continued

probably would've been out
way more weeks than I could

Revis missed all of training

that it likely played a role in

"I'm sure Cro's probably
going to get a pick this week-
end," Revis said with a laugh.

Cromartie, who shut down
Moss after Revis went out,
will primarily be matched up
with Brandon Marshall on
Sunday. The two went up
against each other several
times in recent seasons when
Cromartie was in San, Diego
and Marshall was in Denver.
Cromartie was also part of a
Chargers secondary that gave
up 18 catches by Marshall in
2008.

"I'm definitely looking for-
ward to that matchup," Cro-
martie said. "It's my ninth
time facing him, so we know
each other well. I'm just look-
ing forward to the challenge."

Liverpool, Chelsea and Man City lose

LONDON (AP) — Liverpool's season
took another turn for the worse when it
was knocked out of the English League
Cup in the third round on Wednesday
night with a shocking loss to fourth-tier
Northampton, and Chelsea and Man-
chester City also were eliminated.

Michael Owen scored twice as defend-
ing champion Manchester United rallied
past second-tier Scunthorpe 5-2.

Liverpool lost 4-2 on penalty kicks fol-
lowing a 2-2 tie against Northampton,
which came away with arguably the
biggest win in its history.

Milan Jovanovic put Liverpool, a seven-
time League Cup champion, ahead in the
ninth minute in a downpour at Anfield,
but Billy McKay tied it in the 56th and
Northampton took the lead. on Michael
Jacobs’ goal in the 98th. David Ngog
equalized in the 116th, and Abdul Osman
converted the decisive penalty kick. —

Liverpool, owned by feuding Tom
Hicks and George Gillett Jr, is just 16th in
the 20-team Premier League. Northamp-
ton is 17th in League 2, the equivalent of
a Class A baseball league.

Newcastle upset Chelsea 4-3 following
a last-minute goal by Shola Ameobi, his
second goal of the night, and West
Bromwich Albion came from behind to
beat Manchester City 2-1 on goals by
Gianni Zuiverloon and Simon Cox.

-United, which like Chelsea and City
played largely second-string lineups, fell

behind in the 19th minute but came back
on the goals by Owen, and one each by
Darron Gibson, Chris Smalling and Ji-

Aston Villa beat Blackburn 3-1 and

defender Eric Lichaj started for Aston

MILLER

By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter
bstubbs@tribunemedia.net

WITH the bulk of the national
team heading out on Sunday for the
Commonwealth Games, Bahamas
Olympic Committee (BOC) presi-
dent Wellington Miller said there
are some concerns about the state
of conditions in New Delhi, India.

According to an article Tuesday
on the Associated Press, one of the
biggest sports events in the world is
in jeopardy as organisers struggle to
cope with unfinished buildings, an
athletes' village described as "unfit
for human habitation," a bridge col-
lapse, concerns over security, alle-
gations of corruption, and an out-
break of dengue fever.

The event, slated for October 3-14,
brings together more than 7,000 ath-
letes from the 71 countries and ter-

ritories every four years.
When asked to comment yester-
day, Miller said like any leader of

any organisation or a team going:

away and they hear of reports, they
have their concerns.

“But then we also hear reports
that everything will be okay by the
time the teams reach there,” Miller
said.

“Whenever you have big games
like this, you will hear of unfinished
buildings and.things not quite ready.
With New Delhi putting on these
games, I strongly believe that every-
thing will be all right and that they
will have everything fit for the ath-
letes and the officials when they get
there.”

The Bahamas recently named a
29-member team made up of 18
track and field athletes, two boxers,
three cyclists and six tennis players.

Chef de mission Roy Colebrooke,

who has made two previous trips to
India to view the facilities, is expect-
ed to leave today to ensure that
everything is in order for the
Bahamian team’s arrival.

The bulk of the team is scheduled
to depart the Lynden Pindling Inter-
national Airport 8am Sunday.

They are then expected to meet
up with those athletes coming out
of the United States in New York
en route to New Delhi. The team is
scheduled to depart New Delhi on
October 16.

Miller said they. are quite aware of
all of the reports coming out of India
and are taking all of the necessary

precautions to ensure that Team

Bahamas is safe during the games.

Minister of Youth, Sports and Cul-
ture Charles Maynard, his wife, and
the acting director of sports, Kevin
Colebrooke, are also expected to
make the trek to India.

be safe during Commonwealth Games

Scotland and Canada delay departures to the Games

By CHRIS LEHOURITES
AP Sports Writer



LONDON (AP) — With
more and more athletes
announcing their withdrawal
from the Commonwealth
Games, Scotland and Canada
became the first teams to
delay their departures to New

Delhi because of the appalling .

conditions at the athletes’ vil-
lage.

The October 3-14 games
have been mired in problems
for weeks, and on Wednesday
part of a drop ceiling inside
the weightlifting venue col-
lapsed, spreading further
doubt on whether athletes will
be safe upon arrival in India’s
capital city.

The latest woes came a day
after a footbridge near the
main stadium collapsed, seri-
ously injuring five construc-
tion workers, and the athletes'
village — where excrement
was found in some rooms —
was labelled "unsafe and unfit
for human habitation." The
village is due to open today.

"By delaying the arrival of
our athletes by a few days, we
hope to give the Delhi 2010
Organising Committee the
necessary time to address the
concerns that have ,been
raised by both the Common-
wealth Games Federation and
the countries which arrived
early," Commonwealth
Games Scotland chairman
Michael Cavanagh said
Wednesday.

The first group of Scottish

athletes and officials was due
to depart Thursday. But
Cavanagh said that dogs have
been seen roaming around the
village, while the apartments
are "filthy" and surrounded
by rubble and building debris.

"We will not compromise

on areas of athlete health,

safety . and security,"
Cavanagh said, adding that
Scottish officials in New Del-
hi would continue to monitor
the situation. "We. need
urgent action from the Com-
monwealth Games Federation
and the Delhi Organising
Committee to address these
crucial issues."

Canada's women's field
hockey team and two shooting
athletes were scheduled to
leave for New Delhi on
Thursday but will remain at

home for at least two more
days.

"The bottom line is that the
accommodations in the ath-
letes village simply aren't
ready," Commonwealth
Games Canada director of
sport Scott Stevenson said in a
statement. "We're working

extremely hard with local’

authorities to get the finish-
ing work and the clean-up
done, but it's going to take
more time."

Stevenson said about a
dozen members of the dele-
gation's staff, some of whom
were due to leave Wednes-
day, have also had their trav-
el plans pushed back for at
least 48 hours.

Commonwealth Games
England chairman Andrew
Foster said his organisation

was monitoring the situation.
The first English athletes are
due to arrive in India on Fri-
day.

"I think the next 24 to 48
hours is the critical time which
will tell us whether the village,
which is where the main prob-
lem is now, has got enough
accommodation for every-
body to. come into it," Foster
told the BBC. "It's a situation
that hangs on a knife-edge."

Commonwealth Games

_ England called the situation

in New Delhi "serious."

"The CGE continues to
seek assurances from the CGF
(Commonwealth Games Fed-
eration) and the organising
committee of the Common-
wealth Games in Delhi that
the village and venues are fit
for purpose, are safe and that
urgent action will be taken by
the OC and the CGF to
address the significant oper-
ational issues which exist,"
Commonwealth Games Eng-
land said in a statement.

The Wales team has given
the local organising commit-
tee a deadline of Wednesday
evening to confirm that all
venues and the athletes' vil-
lage are ready.

"The health and safety of
our team has always been our
top priority, which is why
we've been so desperate to
resolve the issues in the games
village," Team. Wales said in a
statement. "With yesterday's
néws of the bridge collapse

to take a step back and exam-
ine how safe it is to bring ath-
letes into this environment."
On Tuesday, Common-
wealth Games Federation
President Mike Fennell urged
the government to get the ath-
letes' village cleaned up and
ready for Thursday's opening.
Fennell was. due to arrive in

’ New Delhi on Thursday and

has requested a meeting with
Prime Minister Manmohan
Singh.

Foster said it was possible
that England could pull out
of the Commonwealth Games
if conditions do not improve.

"The safety of the athletes
has to be our primary con-
cern," Foster said. "But equal-
ly, we cannot just respond to
that alone, we have to evalu-
ate the whole thing together
and that is what we are
doing."

Many top athletes withdrew.
from the Commonwealth
Games well-before the latest
round problems became pub-
lic, including Jamaican sprint-
er Usain Bolt and world hep-
tathlon champion Jessica
Ennis. But more athletes
pulled out Tuesday, many cit-
ing safety concerns.

World champion triple
jumper Phillips Idowu of Eng-
land said he was thinking of
his children when he decided
to withdraw, adding "my safe-
ty is more important to them
than a medal." Dani Samuels,
a world champion discus
thrower from Australia, with-
drew after two Taiwanese
tourists were wounded in a
seemingly random shooting
by two men on a motorcycle
outside one of India's biggest
mosques. ,

"The fact that someone of
Dani's stature (has with-

drawn) I'm sure is making a
whole lot of others question
their attendance," Jane Flem-
ming, who won the heptathlon
and long jump gold medals at
the 1990 Commonwealth
Games and is now a com-
mentator on Australian TV,
told ABC radio. "It would not
surprise me if we now see a
whole flux of withdrawals,
particularly those athletes who
are of a very high profile or
very successful or who have a
means of making an income
from their sport, because now
the risks that are involved in
attending those games have
gone through the roof."

World 400-meter champi-
on Christine Ohuruogu and
England teammate Lisa
Dobriskey, the defending
1,500 champion at the games,
both said Tuesday that they
were going to skip the event,
citing injuries. They had pre-
viously said they would be
going.

New Zealand Prime Minis-
ter John Key said the future
of the Commonwealth Games
would be jeopardized if the
New. Delhi event was can-
celled, but he wasn't prepared
to risk athletes if facilities and
conditions weren't suitable.

"If they are to go ahead,
from New Zealand's perspec-
tive, conditions have to be
safe and sound for our peo-
ple," Key said Wednesday in
Wellington.

The Australian government
said the ultimate decision to
go or not was for the athletes
to make.

"The government cannot
tell people not to compete. It
can't tell parents not to
attend," Australian Sports
Minister Mark Arbib said i in
Sydney.

He said the situation continues to spiral out of
control “because we have been trying to bury it”;
because some administrators “are trying to save
face” instead of admitting there is a problem.

“Almost every symbol of authority in this coun-

aren’t calling the police now,” said Pastor Reid.

“A lot of the people who make decisions in
this country are clueless as to what is going on in
this country. A lot of the killings are, retaliation
killings. A lot of times, even though the police talk
about people being out on bail, they are really law
abiding citizens, but they feel they are living ina
system that does not provide them with the justice
they deserve, so they take matters into their own
hands,” he said.

CRASH HELD AT AIRPORT

TESTING the facility’s pre-

‘paredness strategy, the Nas-

sau Airport Development
Company (NAD) on Tuesday
conducted a full-scale simu-
lated aircraft crash at the Lyn-

den Pindling International

Airport.

The event, dubbed “Opera-
tion Sunset”, was scheduled
during the evening to test
response times after dark.

The scenario of the crash
simulation was as follows:

At approximately 5.50pm,
information was received from
the pilot of a Tallboy Air flight
2841; an international flight
enroute from Two Foot, Plea-
sure Island to Nassau, stating
that he was experiencing power
fluctuations in his right and left
engines.

The pilot said there were 38
passengers, four crew and 1,000
gallons of fuel on board.

He reported that the aircraft
was a D-Hallivand 8 ( Dash 8),

that he is declaring an emer-
gency.

At 6pm, while on final
approach for runway 09, both
engines shut down and the air-
craft crashed short of the run-
way threshold and burst into
flames. Thick black smoke
emanated from the door of the
cabin and there are numerous
fatalities among passengers and
crew.

The manifest indicated that
there were 15 Jamaicans, eight
Cubans, 12 Bahamians and
three Haitians on board.

Summit calls for reduction in distracted driving

By KEN THOMAS
Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON (AP) — Mak-
ing sure drivers keep their eyes on
the road will require a network of
tough laws, enforcement by police
and personal responsibility, the gov-
ernment said Tuesday.

Obama administration officials
said during a second summit on dis-
tracted driving that it has made
progress in pushing states ‘to target
drivers who send text messages and
use mobile devices from the road,
but too many people are being killed
because of inattentive motorists.

"Every time someone takes their
focus off the road — even if it's just
for a moment — they put their lives
and the lives of others in danger,"
said Transportation Secretary Ray
LaHood:

Thirty states and the District of.

Columbia prohibit drivers from tex-
ting behind the wheel; eight states

have passed laws barring drivers
from ‘using handheld cell phones.

Nearly 5,500 people were killed last «

year in distracted-driving crashes.

The summit brought together gov-
ernment leaders, safety advocates,
family members of victims and busi-
ness groups to discuss ways of reduc-
ing distracted driving. "Our lives
have been changed forever. In place
of joy and laughter, there is sorrow
and tears," said Russell Hurd, of
Abingdon, Md.

Hurd's daughter, Heather, was
killed in January 2008 when a tractor
trailer plowed into nine vehicles at a
traffic light in Orlando, Florida.
Heather Hurd and her fiance were
driving to meet their wedding plan-
ner at Walt Disney World.

LaHood suggested the technology
industry could place warning labels
— "the way we put warning labels
on cigarettes" — on the boxes of
mobile phones urging consumers not
to use the devices while driving.

The transportation secretary not-
ed that automakers were adding in-
vehicle technology that allows dri-
vers to update their Facebook page,
surf the Internet "or do any num-
ber of other things instead of dri-
ving safely."

"Features that pull drivers' hands,
eyes and attention away from the
road are distractions," said LaHood.
He told reporters the technology
could create a "cognitive distrac-
tion" and he would meet with auto
companies to develop new safety
guidelines for technology in vehi-

cles. :

Ford Motor.Co. has marketed its
in-car entertainment and communi-
cation service, known as Sync, and

tion so drivers could verbally con-
nect with the Internet.

Wade Newton, a spokesman for
the Alliance of Automobile Manu-
facturers, said making driving safer
will mean balancing "the fact that
we know drivers will do certain
things while driving and how tech-
nology can make it safer."

As part of the summit, the Trans-
portation Department proposed bar-
ring truck drivers from sending text
messages while hauling hazardous
materials. The proposal would close
a loophole’ for hazardous material
haulers not covered by separate rules
being finalized that prohibit com-
mercial bus and truck drivers from
sending text messages on the job.

The department also wrapped up
rules restrict train operators from
using cell phones and mobile devices

to adopt tougher laws against send-
ing text messages from behind the

Ahmadinejad blames capitalism for poverty

By EDITH M LEDERER
Associated Press Writer

UNITED NATIONS (AP)
— Iran's president on Tues-
day predicted the defeat of
capitalism and blamed global
big business for the suffering
of millions, but Germany's
chancellor said market
economies were key to lifting
the world's least developed
countries out of poverty.

The clash of visions at the
UN anti-poverty summit drew
a line under the stark differ-
ences on easing the misery of
the one billion people living
on less than $1.25 a day.

More than 140 presidents,
prime ministers and kings are
attending the three-day sum-
mit which started Monday to
assess and spur on achieve-
ment of UN targets set by
world leaders in 2000. The
plan called for an intensive
global campaign to ease
poverty, disease and inequal-
ities between rich and poor
by 2015.

Iranian President Mah-
moud Ahmadinejad, howev-
er, never mentioned the Mil-
lennium Development Goals
in his speech to the 192-mem-
ber General Assembly.

Instead, he took aim at’cap-
italism and called for the
overhaul of "undemocratic
and unjust" global decision-
making bodies, which are
dominated by the United
States and other Western
powers. While Ahmadinejad
didn't single out any country,
he said world leaders, thinkers
and global reformers should
"spare no effort" to make
practical plans for a gew
world order — reform of
international economic and
political institutions.

the new millennium, we need
to revert to the divine mind-

AP Sports Writer

NEW DELHI (AP) —
One of the world's biggest
sports events is in jeopardy as
organisers struggle to cope
with unfinished buildings, an
athletes' village described as
"unfit for human habitation,"
a bridge collapse, concerns
over security and corruption,
and an outbreak of dengue
fever.

The October 3-14 Com-
monwealth Games, which
bring together .more than
7,000 athletes from the 71
countries and territories every
four years, was supposed to
showcase the emerging power
of India — just as the 2008
Beijing Olympics did for Chi-
na.
Instead, the New Delhi
Games are highlighting the

problems in the developing |

nation of more than 1 billion
people that is still plagued by
vast areas of poverty.

The frenzied, last-minute
preparations are in such dis-

‘array with less than two

weeks before the opener that
some Officials are speculating
that a few teams could with-
draw or the event could be
called off. :

The latest blow came Tues-
day, with the collapse of.a
footbridge being built to con-
nect the main stadium to a
parking lot. Police said 23
construction workers were
injured, five seriously.

Hours earlier, the Com-
monwealth Games Federa-
tion urged the Indian govern-
ment to finish work on the
athletes’ village, which is due
to open Thursday. In addition
to shoddy conditions inside
and outside the buildings,
there also are problems with
plumbing, wiring, furnishings,
Internet access and cell phorie
coverage.

"We have to continue to
push our concerns at the high-
est level and you can't get
higher than the Cabinet office
of the country and the prime
minister," Commonwealth
Games Federation chief exec-
utive Mike Hooper told The
Associated Press. "They have
to come up with a clear plan
to meet the needs of athletes
and show they can provide
consistent standards."

The games have historical-
ly been dominated by Eng-
land, Australia and Canada,

cerns about the conditions in

tion. "Athletes will start get-
ting on planes soon and deci-

sions will have to be made. .

We need new levels of reas-
surance."

Australian discus world °

champion Dani Samuels and
England's triple jump world
champion Phillips Odowu
both withdrew from the
games Tuesday, citing con-
cerns over health and security.

. Australia's federal sports
minister Mark Arbib, who is
due to travel to New Delhi
next week, told Sky News on
Wednesday that "there could
be a number more who made
that decision," to follow
Samuels' lead and withdraw
from the games.

Scotland said its team's liv-
ing area was "unsafe and unfit
for human habitation." Aus-
tralia's chef de mission,
retired marathon runner
Steve Moneghetti, said Indian
organizers "have got two days
to do what's probably going
to take about two weeks."

Commonwealth Games
Canada director of sport Scott
Stevenson said housing facili-
ties were not “anything like
what was promised."

Although no one has said
they will pull out, New
Zealand team manager Dave
Currie had some of the

strongest words for organis- |

ers.

"If the village is not ready
and athletes can't come, obvi-
ously the implications of that
are that (the event) is not
going to happen," Currie told
New Zealand radio network
newstalkZB.

The chaos has severely
dented India's hopes of using
the games as a springboard
for.a bid to host the Olympics
in 2020 or 2024.

The International Olympic
Committee carries out more
rigorous and frequent inspec-
tions of host cities to make
sure that construction dead-

' lines are met. The process has

been tightened further since
the delays that dogged prepa-
rations for the 2004 Athens
Olympics.

the third to be staged outside
Britain, Canada, Australia
and New Zealand. Kingston,

Soon afterward, German
Chancellor Angela Merkel,
the world's fourth-largest eco-
nomic power, took an oppo-

site tack, likely speaking for ’

the rest of the capitalist world.

Stressing that "the prima-
ry responsibility for develop-
ment lies with the govern-
ments of the developing coun-
tries," she said the key to eco-
nomic prosperity was good
governance and a flourishing

Jamaica held the 1966 edition,
then known as the British
Empire and Commonwealth
Games, and Kuala Lumpur,
Malaysia, was the only Asian
city to host the-event in 1998.

New Delhi, India's capital

and home to more than 12

million people, was chosen to
host the -19th edition of the
Commonwealth Games in
November 2003, beating out
Hamilton, Ontario. Between
then and 2008, the country
did little to prepare.

Organising committee sec-
retary general Lalit Bhanot
said the situation at the vil-
lage was normal.

capitalist economy.

"The countries themselves
must promote the develop-
ment of a market econo-
my...for without self-sustain-
ing economic growth devel-
oping countries will find the
road out of poverty and
hunger too steep to travel,"
Merkel said.

The German leader said
international assistance can't
substitute for domestic
resources, warned that
"development aid cannot con-
tinue indefinitely" and
declared that "support for
good governance is as impor-
tant as aid itself."

Oxfam, one of the world's
most respect aid organisa-
tions, slammed Merkel's
address. Spokeswoman
Emma Seery said more had
been expected from the Ger-
mans, who "failed to explain
how they will meet their
promises of aid to poor coun-
tries, and sidestepped their
responsibility to make aid
work by laying this at the
door of the poorest coun-
tries." :

Seery also chided the Ger-
man leader for not joining
with France and Spain in call-
ing for a small tax on financial
transactions that would go to
meet development needs of
poor countries. "Whether
Germany can still claim to be
a development leader is now
questionable," she said in an
unusually blunt assessment of
a government leader's
address.

UN Secretary-General Ban
Ki-moon has said the world
is "on track" to cut extreme
poverty by half, the No. 1
goal, though some critics say
it's mainly because of the big
strides in China and India.
Many recent reports show
that the world's poorest coun-
tries, especially ih sub-Saha-
ran Africa, have made little
progress in eradicating pover-

ty.

~ lems and they will be resolved

before the athletes come in,"
Bhanot said. "These are not
going to affect the games in
any way as all venues are
ready to. host the games."

Even Hooper called the .

problems "fixable."

He said he would not spec-
ulate on whether the games
would take place, adding:
"The games start on the third
of October and everything
that has to be done must be
done.’

Hooper said newspaper
reports of human excrement
.around the village were true.
The BBC, the games' biggest

and most influential broad-

And in Africa, Asia and
Latin America there also has
been a lack of progress in
meeting other key goals:
reducing mother and child
deaths, increasing the num-
ber of people with access to
basic sanitation, and promot-
ing women's equality. Ban is
expected to launch a new ini-
tiative Wednesday to spur
action on improving the lot
of women and children.

In his speech, Ahmadine-
jad did not mention Iran's
nuclear programme or the
four rounds of UN Security
Council sanctions over
Tehran's refusal to prove it is
not trying to build a nuclear
weapon. Iran claims it is only
working on nuclear power to
generate electricity.

The subject may be raised
again Thursday when the
General Assembly's annual
ministerial meeting begins.

Russian Foreign Minister
Sergey Lavrov raised the
sanctions issue in his speech,
saying UN sanctions were not
intended to harm ordinary

civilians. He voiced "serious |

concern" at additional sanc-

tions imposed by individual ©

countries.

The criticism appeared
aimed at the United States,
the European Union, Aus-
tralia, Canada, Japan and
South Korea, all of whom
have imposed their own much
tougher sanctions on Tehran.

"We are convinced that
such practice contradicts the
efforts to achieve the MDGs
and must be brought to an
end," Lavrov said, using the
initials of the Millennium
Development Goals.

To counter these threats,
Lavrov said Russia was ready
to help with information and
communication technology
"to bridge the gap between
the developed and develop-
ing countries and — asa
result — to promote global
development."

caster, has detailed the trou-
bles on its website and called
the state of the village "shock-
ing."

"This is a very serious mat-
ter and it needs the attention
of the government of India to
deploy whatever resources
are necessary to fix and
address it," Hooper said. "A
massive deep clean is required
and it needs to be done."

‘Aside from the bridge col-

_ lapse and the unfinished con-

struction, the buildup to the
games has been plagued by

soons. Organisers said last

President Ellen Johnson

’ Sirleaf of Liberia, one of the

world's poorest nations that
has made progress because of
the goals, said Africa "still has
far to go" but if efforts are
intensified "we will, ultimate-
ly, achieve them."

"My message is this: As we
renew our resolve in 2010, we
must recognize the need for
inclusive economic growth.
We need rapid, stable, and
sustained growth that creates
jobs, especially for youth and
in sectors that benefit the
poor, and expands opportu-
nities for women," she said.

Pakistan's Foreign Minis-
ter Shah Mahmood Qureshi
said until a few years ago his
country was on track to
achieve a number of the
MDGs, but the fight against
terrorism and the recent
unprecedented flooding "have
changed almost everything."

The MDGs remain "the
centerpiece" of Pakistan's
development programme, he
said, but the rehabilitation of
flood-ravaged areas will cost
billions and will impact eco-
nomic recovery and achieve-
ment of the UN goals.

At events on the sidelines
of, the summit, US Secretary
of State Hillary Rodham Clin-
ton launched a programme to
address chronic malnutrition
blamed for 3.5 million mater-
nal and child deaths a year.
The programme, co-spon- .
sored by the Irish govern-
ment, focuses on the first
1,000 days of a child's life,
during which nutrition is crit-
ica]. to mental and physical
development.

Later, Clinton helped
launch a new programme to
place cleaner cooking stoves
in 100 million homes by 2020.

She said unsafe stoves expose

as many as three billion peo-
ple to toxic chemicals and
smoke, and upgrading them
can save and improve "mil-
lions of lives."

Commonwealth Games at risk with under two weeks left

lion available.

Two weeks ago, the Indian
capital was hit by an outbreak
of dengue fever, and heavy
rains have contributed both
to the problem of the mos-
quito-borne virus and floods.
Although the government
played down the threat of
dengue fever, doctors in New
Delhi's private clinics said
they were inundated with
dengue patients and accused
the government of vastly
understating the situation.

The stagnant water of the
Yamuna River next to the
athletes' village certainly has-
n't quelled fears of infection
for visiting teams.

Sudan on
referendum

By MATTHEW LEE
Associated Press Writer

NEW YORK (AP) — Sec-
retary of State Hillary Rod-
ham Clinton is urging
Sudanese authorities to make
up for, lost time in preparing
for an independence referen-
dum early next year for the
Southern Sudan.

On the sidelines of the UN
General Assembly in New
York, Clinton met Tuesday
with Sudan's Vice President
Ali Osman Taha to impress
upon him the need for a well-
organised and peaceful vote
in January. With just over 100
days until the referendum,
preparations are-far behind ,
schedule.

There are also fears that a
vote splitting the south and



north will re-ignite a bloody
civil war that ended in 2005.
Clinton's talks with Taha
come ahead of a high-level
UN session on Sudan that

President Barack Obama will .

attend on Friday.

Taha and the President of
southern Sudan Salva Kiir will
also participate in the meet-
ing.

Sudan activists have
warned that urgent interna-
tional diplomatic intervention
is the only way to prevent
renewed civil war.

Underscoring the concern,
Clinton and the foreign min-
isters of Britain and Norway
released a letter Tuesday that
they sent to Taha and Kir last
week appealing to them "to
take swift action to ensure" a
peaceful vote that recognises

the will of the people.
"There remains an enor-
mous amount to be done and
work must be accelerated to
make up for lost time," they
said in the letter.
Southern Sudan, which is

predominantly animist and .

Christian, is scheduled to vote
on independence January 9.
But the group charged with
organising the vote has not
yet set a date for voter regis-
tration.

The Obama administration

- has said it is "inevitable" the

south will declare indepen-
dence.

Given the south's substan-
tial known oil resources, many
worry that the predominantly
Muslim north will find it dif-
ficult to accept an indepen-
dent south.

The body charged with organ-
ising the vote has not yet set a
date for voter registration, a
process likely to be con-
tentious as officials decide
who is eligible to vote.

President Obama is sched-
uled to attend a high-level
UN meeting in Sudan on Fri-
day.

"There are a lot.of forecasts
of war and all these indica-
tions that tells us the situa-
tion between north and south
is as tense as ever," said Sister
Cecilia Sierra Salcido, a Mex-
ican nun.

Salcido and other members
of the Catholic Archdiocese
of Juba have organised "101
Days of Prayer for Peace."
The effort began Tuesday to
coincide with the Interna-
tional Day of Peace. It ends â„¢
January 1, eight days before
the referendum.

"The least we can do is
pray," said Salcido.

Hundreds gathered on a
rainy morning in the south-
ern capital of Juba to mark

~ the launch of the prayer cam-

paign. ,

Interfaith Christian work
has long been a feature of
efforts toward peace in Sudan
during the country's long civ-
il war and since the signing of
the Comprehensive Peace
Agreement in 2005 that end-
ed more than two decades of
fighting.

"The church was able to
present the authentic voice of
the ordinary people of South-
ern Sudan and the transition-
al areas to the parties and the
world," said John Ashworth,
an advocate and leader of
ecumenical peace efforts in °
the country. "The church
played a major role in putting
the right of self-determina-
tion at the center of the peace
agreement."

Senior southern govern-
ment officials have said that
religious freedoms will be
respected in an independent
Southern Sudan, but some in
the religious minority in the
south are not so sure.

Associated Press that locals

Ali Center starting global
peace gardens project

He BRUCE SCHREINER
Associated Press Writer

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP)
— Muhammad Ali was back
in the limelight Tuesday in his

hometown, surrounded by’

children who had toiled in a
schoolyard garden that
inspired a global initiative to
cultivate tolerance and peace
through food.

The boxing great and his
wife, Lonnie, promoted the
launch of "Muhammad Ali
Center Peace Gardens,"
aimed at teaching children
how to build gardens to help

them learn not only about -

nutrition, but also respect for
different cultures.

As part of a teacher-led
pilot project, students at John

F Kennedy Montessori Ele-'

mentary School helped plant,
nurture and harvest vegeta-
bles representing popular
foods in cultures around the
world.

The youngsters also pitched
in to help turn the vegetables

into menu dishes served Tues- '

day. Some of the bounty was
donated toa local food bank.
About 600. children,
preschoolers to fifth graders,
filled the floor of the
_ Louisville school's gym to

cheer Ali, whose well-known -

battle with Parkinson's dis-
ease has left him mostly silent
and made public appearances
rare. ,

He was seated for the near-
‘ly hourlong event and
beamed when a child came
on stage to talk about the pro-
ject.

His wife, Lonnie Ali, used
the school's own ethnic diver-
sity to make a point about the

PORT-AU-PRINCE,
Haiti (AP) — Wyclef Jean
has officially ended his bid
for Haiti's presidency.

A statement sent Tuesday
by his publicist says the
singer is leaving Haitian pol-
itics to promote a new
album.

Jean's candidacy ended
last month when the
Caribbean country's eight-
member provisional elec-
toral council left him and
more than a dozen other
hopefuls off the ballot.
Ninéteen candidates were
approved.

No official reasons were
given for the exclusions.
Jean is presumed not to
have met constitutional
requirements including liv-
ing in Haiti. He lives in New,
Jersey.

The announcement ends
speculation the singer would
contest the disqualification,
though the council does not
allow appeals.

The election is slated for
November 28.

Yum Brands Foundation,
the charitable arm of fast-food
company Yum Brands Inc.,
will provide $100,000 in grants
during the next four years to
help build multicultural gar-
dens at schools around the
world.

"When we heard that you

are building a garden that was |

going to foster multicultural



respect: teach nutrition and
feed the hungry, we thought
that is something that can't
just be contained here in
Louisville, it's got to spread |
around the world," said Amy
Sherwood, a vice president of
Yum Brands, the parent of
Taco Bell, Pizza Hut and
KFC. 5

The school came up with
the idea of developing a gar-
den in which the youngsters
took roles in growing food
associated with naticnalities
represented at the school. The
Muhammad Ali Center and
Yum Brands Foundation saw’
it as a springboard for a con-
cept that could catch on glob-
ally to promote diversity and
help combat hunger.

At the school, garden beds
at the edge of the playground
represented various countries.
Squash and beans were grown
in the US/Native Anierican
garden.

Tomatoes, peppers and
onions were ina Salsa garden
representing Mexico.

Sweet potatoes and beans
were grown in a Cuban gar-

“den bed, edamame in the

Asian bed arid potatoes and °
cucumbers represented Rus-
sia.

The lessons from tending
the inner city garden were
incorporated into social stud-
ies, art and music, said Ruth
Welch, ‘a teacher at the
school. It also gave the kids
a chance to get their hands
dirty while learning about
nature.

"It is such a joy to witness
the wonder in, a kindergar-
tender's face as she pokes her
finger into the freshly tilled
soil to plant a bean," she said.

Hurricane Igor storms
Canada with heavy rains

ST JOHN'S, Newfound-
land (AP) — Hurricane Igor
pelted eastern Canada with
heavy rain Tuesday, flooding
communities, washing out
roads and stranding some res-
idents in their homes.

In the Pacific, a mild tropi-
cal storm formed and was
expected to cross the Mexi-
can resort area of Baja Cali-
fornia later in the day.

The Canadian Hurricane
Centre said Igor had trans-
formed into a "post-tropical"
storm, which has a different
structure from a hurricane but
still packs the same punch.
The storm was battering New-
foundland, on Canada's east-
ern coast.

The Hurricane Centre said
the change in classification
does not reflect a downgrade
in the storm's intensity
because winds have strength-
ened as the storm draws ener-
gy from another weather sys-
tem to the west.

"This is not your normal
heavy rainfall flooding. It's
having a major impact," said
Chris Fogarty, of the Canadi-
an Hurricane Centre. He said
more than 200 millimeters (8
inches) of rain have already
fallen in some regions in the
past few hours.

Dennis Shea of the
province's Emergency and
Fire Services office-said more
than 30 communities had
declared a state of emergency
and that they were investigat-
ing reports that a man was
swept out to sea in eastern
Newfoundland. Shea said 19
communities were isolated
because of washed out roads.

Marystown Mayor Sam
Synard said the storm was
overwhelming his communi-
ty's capacity to cope.

"We've never seen such a
violent storm before," he said.
"We've lost sections of our
main roads, completely
washed out to sea."

Keith Rodway, a member
of the Clarenville town coun-
cil, said parts of his town had
to be evacuated.

Ohio history, officials said

Twenty-four suspects,

charges including heroin pos-

The charges carry possible life

"This case is no takedown

US Attorney Steven Dettel-

"This is a takedown of. a

The case began with feder-

Authorities said heroin was
smuggled from Colombia,

Mexico and Nigeria and sent »

to Cleveland to be resold to
street dealers.

The seized heroin has a
street value in the millions of

announce large
Marijuana bust

By ANDREW WELSH-HUGGINS
Associated Press Writer

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — State and federal authorities say
they’ ve uncovered another large marijuana growing opera-
tion in Ohio with possible ties to Mexico.

Investigators said Tuesday the operation in Logan and Musk-
ingum counties involved thousands of plants and may be con-
nected to Mexican nationals cultivating and trafficking mari-
juana in Ohio. They say there have been multiple arrests.

The state Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation
says officials have seized more marijuana plants in six*weeks

than all of last year.

Last month state and local officials found about 22,000 mar-
ijuana plants in a small village in southern Ohio called Latham.

Authorities nationally say growers with ties to Mexican traf-
fickers are planting large marijuana plots on public land.

The California Cannabis
Association said Tuesday that
Proposition 19 would inad-

allowing local governments to
prohibit the sale and purchase
of marijuana in their jurisdic-

The group predicts many
cities and counties would
impose such a ban if voters
approve the initiative, leav-
ing local. medical marijuana
users with few options.

The measure's supporters
say it explicitly protects
patients’ rights and would
provide them with safer and
easier access to the drug.

If Proposition 19 passes in
November, California would
be the first state to legalize
and regulate recreational pot
use.

Police chief Jose Amado Polanco
said Tuesday that the officers under
investigation all belong to the nar-

NEW YORK (AP) — Former
' President Bill Clinton on Tuesday
warned of the growing devasta-
tion of the global economic down-
turn and said the dangers posed by
natural disasters around the world
had been increased by the effects
of climate change.

The former president spoke in
New York on the first day of the
annual Clinton Global Initiative.
The conference brings together
leaders from government, busi-
ness and philanthropy, who make
financial commitments aimed at
tackling poverty and disease

Clinton announced new finan-
cial commitments to help Haiti

to Pakistan, where monsoon rains
led to deadly flooding last sum-
mer. He also announced a new
programme to help Louisiana's
gulf coast, which is still recovering
from the massive oil spill and the
effects of Hurricane Katrina five
years ago.

Clinton said the gulf region had
been hit by "everything but a
plague of locusts" and said climate

change had-made events like hur- -

ricanes and flooding more fre-
quent and deadly.

"There is every reason to
believe the incident of economi-
cally devastating natural disasters
will accelerate around the world
with he changing of the climate,"
Clinton said, urging governments
and world leaders to be better pre-
pared for such events.

Clinton also pressed attendees

on the need to educate and

: Ee SLO) -% 2 =

“pungine

empower women and girls in
developing countries, saying the
global economy would improve
with women's full participation.
"There are still .a lot of places in
this world where women are part
human and part property and
where men define their meaning

in life," Clinton said:

The former president's wife,
Secretary of State Hillary Rod-
ham Clinton, spoke at the confer-
ence to announced a new pro-
gramme to place cleaner stoves in
100 million homes by 2020. The
programme primarily targets
women and girls, who do most of
the world's cooking.

Clinton said as many as three
billion people cooking meals every
day are exposed to toxic chemi-

_ cals and smoke using unsafe

stoves, That exposure leads to a
range of respiratory illnesses like

NER

pneumonia and lung cancer and
puts greenhouse gases into the air,
which contributes to climate
change.

"I know this may sound hard to
believe, but by upgrading these
stoves, millions of lives could be

saved and improved. They could’

be as transformative as bed nets or
vaccines," Clinton said, adding
that the US government would
contribute $50 million to help
launch the program.

Bill Clinton largely steered clear
of politics during the conference,
but said at one point he wished
more world leaders made their
decisions based on facts.

"Do you know how many polit-
ical and economic decisions are
made in this world by people who
don't know what in the living day-
lights they are talking about?"

Clinton said.

UK: No elections
next year in the

Turks and Caicos

By DAVID McFADDEN
Associated Press Writer

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) — An
election to return self governance for
Turks and Caicos Islands has been post-
poned, a British Foreign Office minister
announced Tuesday, extending London's
direct rule over the island dependency.

Henry Bellingham, the minister for
overseas territories, said that elections
set for July 2011 would be delayed to
allow time for anti-corruption and good-
government reforms to take effect in the
islands some 500 miles (800 kilometers)
southeast of Florida.

Britain imposed direct rule on Turks
and Caicos in August 2009 after a gov-
ernment probe into allegations that local
leaders misused public money and prof-
ited from the sale of government-owned
land to developers.

The UK suspended the government
and legislature and put the London-
appointed governor in direct charge.

"We want elections to take place as
soon as practicable. But I have conclud-
ed that more time is needed," Belling-
ham said in a statement from the UK.
Foreign and Commonwealth Office at
the close of a short visit to Turks and

Caicos.

In a radio address to islanders, Belling-
ham said he would announce the
"remaining milestones which will have
to be met before elections can take
place." He said the voté should be held
"as soon as practicable."

"Ultimately, we all want to see TCI
stand on its own two feet," he said.

The islands' former opposition party
called the decision an insult and a "bla-
tant attempt to further separate Turks
and Caicos Islanders from our funda-
mental and inalienable rights to full
democracy."

"We demand, here and now, for a
return of power to the people of the
Turks and Caicos Islands!" said a state-
ment from the People's Democratic
Movement, which previously welcomed
the British effort to clean up politics in
the territory.

An interim government led by Lon-
don-appointed Gov. Gordon Wetherell
was created after Britain appointed a
panel to look into allegations of corrup-
tion against former Premier Michael Mis-
ick and other officials in the islands of
23,000 inhabitants.

Public hearings revealed Misick spent
lavishly after taking. office in 2003. His
estranged wife, actress LisaRaye McCoy,
‘described using private jets to commute
from Los Angeles and other luxuries
including a leased Rolls-Royce. Misick
has denied any wrongdoing and
described the British corruption probe
as "modern-day colonialism."

Earlier this year, the former premier
put his 11,000-square-foot (1,022-square-
meter) beachfront estate on the market.

A telephone number for Misick rang
busy.-A spokeswoman for the British
governor could not immediately provide
comment early Tuesday afternoon.

Government protects

generation property
landowners with Land
Adjudication Bill

GENERATION property
landowners can rest assured
that they will receive govern-
ment protection for the legal
right to land titles given to
them by ancestors.

Many residents in the Fam-
ily Islands have been living in
limbo, due to the lack of prop-
er entitlement that protects
them in the succession of gen-
erational property.

“Some of you are caught
up in occupation of what is
known as generational. land,
that is land initially granted
to your ancestors who died in

_testate or without leaving a

Last Will and Testament,”

said Byran Woodside, Minis-
ter of State.for Lands and
Local Government.

“Therefore, though the off-
spring may occupy the land,
no free hold title can be had
by anyone, except in very
peculiar circumstances, where
all the interested parties agree
for the distribution of the land
in question, thus, allowing for
proper survey and drawing up
of conveyances.”

The new 2010 Land Adju-
dication Bill gives these

landowners the legal power |

to contest the absence of a
Last Will and Testament in a
court of law. It resolves issues
concerning land succession
rights to lands on which these
owners are currently living.
The government is correct-
ing the loophole that exposes
rightful owners to exploita-
tion of the “no free hold title”
problem. These new land
titles will give Bahamian
landowners the option to mar-
ket the land.
“The Adjudication Bill will
_ provide a forum for families
to petition the Adjudication
Office? to hear their claim and

Lands and Local Government

concerns of Family Islanders

make ‘a decision, which will
allow them to be awarded a
certificate of title that is mar-
ketable,” said Mr
Woodside.

Prior to a growing illegal
immigration problem, estate-
planning measures were not
previously required because
succession was automatically
assumed within Bahamian
families. :

However, the phenomenon
of illegal squatters reportedly
abusing the 1925 Quieting of
Titles Act has persuaded the
government to deflect the
opportunity for exploitation,
particularly in remote areas
of the Family Islands.

“Tn the past, the provisions

of the Quieting of Titles. Act

Le.

have been the bedrock of
dealing with contentious land
matters. This is a costly under-
taking, since it requires the

attendance before a Supreme ,
Court judge,” said Mr Wood- -

side.
“Quiet matters often drag

on for years and families who .

do not‘have the means to con-
tinue the matter end up losing
what is rightfully their
birthright. For the Family
Island resident, this could
prove to be a nightmare, as
cost doubles and sometimes
triples with-travel, accommo-
dations, and other incidental
and legal costs could amount
to equal the value of the land
in contention.” g

For the last 40 years,
Bahamians have been dis-
turbed by the rising compli-
cations and costs to protect
their lands.

“Many times, Family Island
residents give in, not because
they do not believe in their
fight for what may prove to
be rightfully theirs, but
because it becomes too pro-
hibitive for them to contin-
ue,” said Mr Woodside.

The: government’s mani-
festo commits to addressing

outstanding land issues. Its ~

disposition is outlined in the
Land Use Policy and Admin-
istration Project (LUPAP),
which was completed in Octo-
ber 2009. i

With new technology to
record cadastral data and
satellite images of land
boundaries, the 2010 Bill also
combines the efforts of the
Lands and Surveys Depart-
ment, the Department of the
Registrar General and the
Valuation Section of the

Department of Real Property

Taxes.

Famous Hand

East dealer.
North-South vulnerable.

Opening lead — ace of clubs.

This deal occurred at the 1984
World Team Olympiad in the semi-
final match between France and
Denmark. The French won the 64-
board battle by the relatively narrow
margin of 15 International Match
Points, and most of that came from
this hand.

When Michel Perron and Paul
Chemla of France were North-South,
the bidding went as shown. West's
four-notrump bid was explained by
East as showing both minor suits,
and after North raised four spades to
five, the Danish East doubled.

Chemla ruffed the club opening



and led the queen of hearts to West's
ace. West returned a trump to his

probably generated by the fear that a
double might chase the enemy into} -
five hearts, where they seemed likely
to do well. In fact, with best defense,
five hearts goes down only two, so
North was at least partly correct. But
since West had already indicated a
minor-suit hand, it is doubtful that
either opponent would have run to
hearts.

As it was, five clubs undoubled
went down five — 250 -points —
leaving Denmark 600 points short of
the French score at the other table.
This gave France a gain of 1] IMPs
on the deal, nearly all of the margin it
eventually won by.

Urging MSC and the

to come to an amicable solu-
tion, K P Turnquest
expressed concern that
Grand Bahama _ and
Freeport businesses, who
relied*on MSC to import
their container shipments,
would “have no choice” but
to pass on the increased
trucking delivery meee to
consumers.

“The significant increase
MSC is talking about pass-
ing on to customers is cer-
tainly not acceptable, par-
ticularly at this time in
Grand Bahama,” Mr Turn-
quest told Tribune Business.
“Tt’s a significant concern.

“Grand Bahama is not
doing well economically,
and to increase the cost bur-
den on suppliers is some-
thing that will obviously be
passed.on to consumers. It’s
an increase that we can ill
afford at this time.

“It’s not going to help
business for sure. They will
have no choice but to go up
in cost, and will have to pass
it on.”

MSC, which is also a sig-

nificant shareholder in the ©

Freeport Container Port
(the second largest behind
its partner, Hutchison
Whampoa), has more than
doubled the container deliv-
ery charges from $120 per
container to $295.

This sparked a firestorm

companies, who feared the

plan that would see MSC

Don't just paper
over the cracks

By DEIDRE M. BASTIAN

ot all paper is
created equal.
Choosing the
‘best paper for
printing promotional adver-
tising, sales and marketing lit-
erature can sometimes be

‘confusing. Knowing the

appropriate paper for your
business card, marketing fly-
ers, newsletters and brochures
can be rewarding.

How much do you know
about paper stock? Until
recently, I didn't know as
much as J should have, as it
didn't seem particularly
important. Nevertheless, with
a little more in-depth under-
standing, I can see why know-
ing about paper stock can har-
monise the entire process and
result in a happy ending for
both parties.

Sometimes clients might
demand the red ink to be a
certain shade for that perfect
flare. But a good designer can,
help decide which type of
paper stock will best empha-
sise the different colour
schemes that are being
designed for his client. Noth-
ing can be more frustrating
for a client than to receive a
large delivery of printed mat-
ter that just doesn't have the
anticipated feel.

Have you ever had a client
ask why their marketing
material hasn’t printed the
colour they requested? Their
first reaction is normally to
point the finger in the direc-
tion of the designer in an irate
manner. They are probably
correct to place blame upon
the designers, as they should
always declare upfront that
colours can look considerably
different depending on the
type of paper stock used.
Graphic designers, like other
professions, should take on
the role of a teacher, provid-

standing of critical factors
impacting product finish. One
of my favorite axioms is:
“Knowing is half the battle”,
and here | explain why.

This theory goes a long
way. While the grade, grain
and colour of paper used
affects the colour of the ink,
the light under which you’re
looking at the printed product
can dramatically impact the
colour tone as well. It reminds
me of an observation while at

the supermarket of how meat

departments enhance the
colour of their product dis-
plays with different lighting,
giving it a fresher appearance.
(This is all in the name of
business marketing!)

Perspective

To give a little perspective,
it is necessary for print hous-
es to determine which paper
weight and finish produces
the best possible printing

quality. This is vital, as most’

offset printing paper isn’t
capable of undergoing expo-
sure to the heat of the fusion
rollers. Furthermore, it is the
client’s responsibility to
inquire about the type of dig-
ital devices the printer uses,
and to learn what papers have
been approved for digital pro-
duction.

“T did not know that paper

products turn out”. Yes, it
can, and to alleviate process-
ing problems, clients should
always demand a proof before
signing-off on print jobs. A
PDF proof will not produce
the true result of the colour
prints, so the key is to display
the design from one medium
to another. It is also advisable
for a commercial printer to
include proof costs in the

' print job. If not this process

could easily glide into a pro-
bono handshake and continue
for a long time before it even
sees the finish line.
For example, if a particu-
lar paper is very expensive
but your print run is of a low
quantity, the price of paper is
not much of an overall cost
factor in the final price.

~ Equally, if your print run is

large, the paper can be a sig-
nificant cost factor, so
depending on design and
print, the cost should be mea-
sured on a sliding scale.
Moreover, the paper you’
choose determines the cor-
rectnéss of colour, the bright-
ness and sharpness, as well as
the tactile (feel) of the final.

weight paper will probably
cost a little less, and definite-

‘New vision
needed to



GB growth

By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

Grand Bahama Port Authority (GBPA) licencees and
residents were yesterday again urged to “take control of their
destiny and create a new vision” for their island, an attorney
yesterday acknowledging that Freeport’s growth had
“stalled”, with new business development over the past 20
years “haphazard”.

Carey Leonard, the former in-house counsel at the GBPA,
in an address to Rotary Club of Grand Bahama at Sunrise,
said Grand Bahamians needed to be mindful of what was
happening elsewhere in the world, and external pressures

from bodies such as the World Trade Organisation (WTO).

that might impact their economies, in crafting their own
future. To move Freeport’s and Grand Bahama’s economy
forward, he said the island needed to assess its own laws,
infrastructure and existing economic base, determining
what competitive advantages it had and what the competi-
tion were doing.

Stalled

“Our. growth has stalled,” Mr Leonard said. “There is
no vision for anyone to follow. Yes, some people have,
over the last 20 years or so, brought business to Grand
Baby ma, but this has been achieved on a somewhat hap-
hagard, by chance manner. There has been no overall vision
for 1e development of Grand Bahama.

“What we embarked on, nearly two months ago, is an
exciting journey. This journey signals a new beginning, one
where the GBPA licensees, with the help of all those living
in Grand Bahama, take control of their destiny and thus cre-
ate a new vision for Grand Bahama’s future.”

And he added: “This journey signals a new beginning. The
time for talking is over, indeed, we don’t have much time at
all, and what little time we do have, is a time for action, one
where the licensees of the ‘Port Area’, with the help of all
those living in Grand Bahama, band together and take con-
trol of their destiny, to create a new vision for their island,
our island, Grand Bahama’s future.”

_| pharmacy to sign on with the National Prescription Drug

The Government’s National Prescription Drug Plan was
launched on Monday, the Minister of Health, Hubert Minnis,
saying it would eliminate the long waiting lines at Princess
Margaret Hospital and public clinics.

“Today we are here at Lowe’s Pharmacy, which was the first

Plan, to launch this new initiative, a partnership between
public and private sector, so that individuals rather than
receiving their medication or waiting in line at the PMH, or
even some of our public clinics, can attend or visit the private
sector and receive medicine at a participating pharmacy near
to them,” Dr Minnis said. Jonathan Wilson, 12, the first Ace
Prescription cardholder to benefit from the plan, suffers from
_asthma along with his sister Raven, 7. Raquel Wilson, moth-
er of Jonathan and Raven, feceived the first medicine to be
dispensed on behalf of her children.

She spends up to $550 monthly on medicine, and can now
obtain medicine and drug supplies at no cost to treat her
children’s condition. “It feels great to know that finally we
have a plan in place whereby we can help one another and I
can help my kids. Instead of buying one medication to share

















time to make sure that they have enough to last,” Mrs. Wilson
said. William Cash, chief financial officer of Lowe’s Phar- |.
macy, said: “We’ve been watching this since we signed up in
April. There were some tense moments and we thought that
maybe we wouldn’t be ready but here we are. Everything is
ready to go. We’re welcoming it and a job well done to the
NIB team and the National Prescription Drug Plan,”

Algernon Cargill, director of the National Insurance Board,
said now that first Phase has been launched planning will
begin for Phase II.

“We're very excited that we were finally able to launch the
National Prescription Drug Plan, primarily because we can
now bring prescription medication to thousands of Bahamians
and provide them with the tools in order to manage their
chronic ailments. And now that we’ve launched Phase I we’ll
be able to plan for Phase II, which is going to be even bigger,”
Mr Cargill said.

Tami Francis, its manager, said the peeennaen Drug Plan
will positively impact the health and lives of thousands of
Bahamians - some 35,000 in Phase 1 and, eventually, 100,000
persons throughout the length and breadth of The Bahamas.

To date,.30 private pharmacies in 35 locations throughout
the Bahamas and all public pharmacies have signed on to
the NPDP. Phase I of the National Prescription Drug Plan
covers four groups of beneficiaries, including NIB pensioners,
Bahamian citizens over 65 years of age, NIB invalids and
children

a Pictured above: Sharon Wilson, Principal; Frank Coyle, Head of Secondary; and current
& students of St Andrew’s School who received 5 A’s or more in recent BGCSE exams

The St Andrew’s School Board of Directors, Administration, Faculty, and Staff congratulate those oa
who sat the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma, Bahamas General Certificate of Secondary Education
(BGCSE) and Bahamas Junior Certificate (BIC) exams this past summer, as well as our student athletes.

The value of a St Andrew’s education lies is in its emphasis on the well-rounded student, which displayed itself through exceptional performances both
academically and athletically for the academic year 2009/2010.

International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme

Since 2003, when St Andrew's became the first school in The Bahamas to introduce the IB Diploma Programme, St Andrew’s IB graduates have been accepted
into prestigious universities like Harvard, Yale, Tufts, Duke, Brown, University of Pennsylvania, McGill, and Vassar, which are usually out of reach to students
with only BGCSE passes. Research shows that IB students are more successful at university than those with only BGCSE and Advanced Placement (AP) exams.

Performing well above the world average, the St Andrew's IB Diploma students received a 85.7% pass rate in the latest exams, with one student, Molly
Coyle, obtaining the remarkable result of 40 points out of a possible score of 45, and going on to study at Tufts University. Another IB Diploma graduate,
Brolin Xavier, the top BGCSE student in the Bahamas in 2008, received a scholarship to attend LeHigh University with 19 credits toward his degree programme.

Bahamas General Certificate of Secondary Education (BGCSE)
Unlike at other schools, St Andrew’s students take their BGCSE exams in Year 11 instead of Year 12. Despite this, the 2009/2010 BGCSE pass rate (A-C)
for the Year 11 students was 82.4% with 14 students receiving five A’s or more.

In the latest BGCSE exam results, 18 out of 19 subjects offered at St Andrew’s had a pass rate at 70% or higher. The pass rates are as follows:
4 subjects had a 100% pass rate: Commerce, Art, Geography (with 15 A’s and 4 B’s), and Graphical Communication.
5 subjects had a pass rate over 90%: Biology, Combined Science, Food & Nutrition, Keyboarding, and Spanish.
7 subjects had a pass rate over 75%: English Language (with 39 A’s), Accounts, Economics, Chemistry, Physics, Music, and French.
2 subjects had a pass rate over 70%: Mathematics with a pass rate of 73%, and English Literature with a pass rate of 71%.

Bahamas Junior Certificate (BJC)
Even though the BJC syllabus is not taught at St Andrew’s School, students had a 97.3% pass rate for the 2009/2010 exams. of the 4 subjects
offered: English, Mathematics, and Social Studies had a 100% pass rate, and General Science had a 90% pass rate.

Athletics

With only 400 students in the Secnniany School, the St Andrew’s Hurricanes continue to “punch way above their weight” in athletics. A truly notable
year for the Hurricanes, not only did a number of students represent The Bahamas on national teams, but they also performed well above expectations as a
tichool team in all of the core sports: softball, soccer, basketball, volleyball, swimming, and track and field.

The Hurricanes again dominated soccer, winning 3 of 4 divisions, and over the past 3 years, winning 10 of 12 soccer championships. The Senior Boys soccer
team have been champions for 4 consecutive years, and both the Senior Girls and Junior Boys soccer teams have been champions for 3 consecutive years
each. For the past 2 years, the Hurricanes have also won 4 of 6 softball championships. In swimming, the Hurricanes placed 2nd overall. St Andrew’s
competed against 13 other schools (12 of which were much larger) in track and field, and still achieved an amazing 4th place.

rinting cards,and want the
brightest, glossy printing, you
should choose glossy card
stock with UV coating. UV
coating is a liquid laminate
that seals the ink underneath,
and protects the card from
finger printing, scratching and
scuffing.

If you are printing flyers,
brochures, books or any pro-
motional literature requiring a
lighter quality paper, then
100-pound gloss book weight
is your best choice for a high
quality printed look.

Don’t just paper
over the cracks ©

Do you know that if you
select a colour from a colour
swatch book and ask 100
printers to print it, you could
easily get 100 different tones?
I am not advocating that you
make yourself an expert on
paper type and printing
process, but a fair knowledge
or principle can assist you in
making the right choice and
saving yourself mega bucks.

In the wake of all of this,
be vigilant and attentive, as
the most costly and troubling
part of the, print job is choos-
ing the incorrect paper stock.
Don’t be afraid to ask the
right questions if it means
receiving the correct answers.

While some of what is out-
lined should be more appro-
priate to a ‘print shop’, having
some basic knowledge of
paper type will eliminate

overhead crisis and make the

printing process much:
smoother for you. :
Can you imagine meeting a :

deadline with thousands of :
spoilt printed materials? :
Frankly, I don’t think this will :
make the client very happy at :
all, and could easily result in :
serious discontent for the :
printer or designer as well. I :
believe it is always wise to :
analyse or plan your task }
beforehand, so as to visualise :
any possible failure. Bottom- :
woiling ener nadeiee that this matter could be resolved without
key. So until we meet again, }
play a little, enjoy life and stay :

on top of your game!

have become dissatisfied with the liquidation’s
progress. Mr Kikivarakis did not return a
phone message left by Tribune Business at his
office.

Mr Crosbie-Jones, giving evidence i in The
Private Trust Corporation’s capacity as trustee
of the trust that owns all Ingelby Holdings’
shares, alleged: “It was the hope of Ingelby

requiring Ingelby to issue a summons to com-
pel theofficial liquidator to transfer its assets.
“The official liquidator’s failure to do so

: and to provide evidence to Ingelby justifying
? his refusal to do so is causing Ingelby loss and
NB: This author welcomes :

damage. The assets held by the official liq-

? uidator are currently valued at approximately
: E* $277,735.”

He further alleged: “The $562,987, which

: the official liquidator alleges was received by
? Ingelby after Caledonia was placed into liqui-
? dation, were not assets managed by Caledonia.
i ‘ These were assets held in a separate account in
? Ingelby’s name, and which account the for-
? mer officers of Caledonia were signatories,
? and at no time were these assets administered
? by Caledonia. Caledonia has no authority to
-: deal with these assets.

Method

“In respect of the $5.909 million that was

: allegedly transferred, the same method of
? holding these accounts was used, and they at
? no time constituted assets under the manage-
: ment or control of Caledonia.”

Mr Crosbie-Jones alleged that Mr Kiki-

? varakis had not met with Ingelby’s attorneys,
? Alexiou, Knowles & Co, “to explain his con-
? cerns” regarding the return of Ingelby’s assets,
? or the conclusions he had drawn in previous
? reports to the Supreme Court.

Describing Ingelby as a fiduciary client of
Caledonia, Mr Crosbie-Jones added that the

? company had complied with Supreme Court
? orders to pay 2 per cent, followed by an addi-.
: tional 8 per cent, of its assets into escrow
:- accounts to fund the liquidation.

That meant the official liquidator retained 10

: per cent of its assets.

Mr Crosbie-Jones why Ingelby’s assets had
: not been transferred as promised, Alexiou,

CHOICE OF ONE

Knowles & Co sent the liquidator a letter on
August 26, 2009, demanding that this happen
and that he “give an explanation” for why this
had not happened. Legal action was also
threatened.

In his September 1, 2009, response, Mr Kiki-
varakis alleged that Ingelby had received the
$562,987 after Caledonia was placed into liq-
uidation on February 12, 2008.

He also expressed concern that “the bene-
ficial owner of Ingelby was a preference share-
holder of Caledonia, and received a number of
payments prior to the date Caledonia was
placed into liquidation. It was. necessary for
him to meet with the beneficial owner of Ingel-
by prior to approaching the Supreme Court for
the release of assets held on behalf of Ingelby”.

In response on September 22, 2009, Alexiou,
Knowles & Co asked the liquidator to “identify
the payments allegedly received, the dates the
payments were received, and to whom the
payments were made” in relation to the
$562,987. They purportedly received no
response.

Further correspondence was exchanged,
including an alleged October 15, 2009, letter
asking for a meeting to discuss Mr Kikivarak-
is’s concerns regarding this and the alleged
$5.909 million that was sent to five former
Caledonia clients after the firm was placed
into liquidation.

Caledonia collapsed into liquidation after |

suffering an almost-$25 million trading loss,
which resulted when Jitney, its Canadian cor-
respondent broker, sold off assets to cover an

overdrawn margin loan balance that was not |

collateralised by the client who had created the
‘hole' in question.

That overdrawn balance was in an account
operated nominally by a Ron Wyles, whose
trading activities were directed by George
Georgiou, a Canadian who has since been of
securities fraud in.

Much of the fraudulent activity was alleged-
ly directed from the Caledonia account.

Jitney ended up selling off assets belonging -

to Caledonia clients other than Wyles/Geor-
giou because they were all pooled in one
omnibus account with it, with no segregation.
The duo had allegedly been engaged in short-
selling, a high-risk trading strategy supposed-
ly collateralised by so-called 'penny stocks’,
and incurred substantial losses that eventual-

‘ly sunk Caledonia. »

$857m resort faces difficulty
‘getting back on its feet

Abaco fuel costs
to hurden all
BEC customers

FROM page 1B

was revealed yesterday,
although some $11 million
- in construction costs were
saved through abandoning
plans for a fuel pipeline.
Michael Moss, BEC’s
chairman, said BEC’s cus-
tomers in New Providence
and other Family Islands
will have to partly finance

the Wilson City plant’s fuel |

costs, after it was decided
that it would be too cum-
bersome just to bill Abaco-
nians for their own fuel.

Mr Moss, speaking at the
Abaco Business Outlook,
said BEC had originally
warned Abaconians that
their choice to switch to
automotive diesel to run
the Wilson City generation
facility, instead of the con-
troversial heavy fuel oil,
Bunker C, would be their
own burden.

However, he explained
that BEC found the devel-
opment of a separate
billing system for Abaco
residents was logistically
unfavourable, forcing the
Corporation to spread
costs for the island’s fuel
across its entire billing sys-
tem.

While these costs were
much higher than would
have been incurred
through the use of Bunker
C, Mr Moss said the use of
-'automotive diesel would
greatly decrease BEC’s

maintenance costs forthe .

four Wilson City genera-
tors. .

Pipeline

He added that the fuel
switch also rendered the
plan to build a pipeline,
which would have carried: :
Bunker C from a fuel dock
to the plant, obsolete, sav-
ing BEC $11 million.

Mr Moss said the Corpo-
ration, however, has only
- shelved the the Bunker C
option and not done away
with it altogether. ~

Storage tanks for that
fuel had already been
ordered, delivered and set
in place when the decision
was made to switch to
automotive diesel.

As a result, two large,
empty storage tanks sit
- unused at the Wilson City
- plant, and are now nothing
- more than a hurricane haz-
~ ard, said Mr Moss. Should
a hurricane threaten the
island, BEC will be. forced
to fill the tanks with water
to ensure.their rigidity.

. The Wilson City plant

has been a bone of con-
tention for the Abaco com-
. munity since its develop-
ment was announced.
Some citizens were forced
to take the Government to
court after they felt there
was not enough consulta-
tion and dialogue with the
community.

Mr Moss said that as the
fastest growing economy in
the Bahamas, Abaco has
seen the highest percent-
age increase in power
demand of any island.
According to him, Abaco's
energy thirst rivals that of
Eleuthera and Exuma
combined.

He said the new power
plant should be able to sus-
tain Abaco's growth for
nine years, and be online
by the end of the year.

This summer, Abaco suf-
fered massive power out-
ages as a result of the exist-
ing power station exhaust-
ing its supply of lubricating
oil for its engines.

Mr Mo,ss as he
addressed a crown of Aba-
conians, apologised pro-
fusely for what he called
' the "less than satisfactory"
customer service rendered
to the community.

He assured them that
with the addition of two
generators rented by the
Corporation, the occur-
rence of power outages has
been rectified.

FROM page 1B

However, her decision on
whether to confirm the arbi-
tration award and verdict is
still awaited some six weeks
after that hearing, meaning
that South Ocean and the two
protagonists - Plainfield and
Mr Stein/RHS Ventures -
remainin “limbo”. .

David Hille, Plainfield’s
lead counsel, told the court
on the recusal motion: “It
appears to be kind of an 11th
hour delay tactic which is con-
sistent with [RHS Ventures’ ]
conduct both in. the arbitra-
tion and in the confirmation
proceedings to date.”

And he added: “What
we’ve got here is a limited
partnership that is in a state of
some limbo in terms of gov-

~ ernance.

“The arbitration resolved
who was to be the general
partner in this case. That is a

position that has not been»

accepted by the respondents
[RHS Ventures] here.

“Tt needs some closure and
finality as to the governance
structure for the limited part-
nership. And without that clo-
sure and finality, it is very dif-
ficult for this enterprise to get
back on its feet and moving
forward.”

He urged that the arbitra-
tion award’s ratification be
“addressed as expeditiously

as is reasonably possible”.
/

In a previous letter filed
with the New York State
Supreme Court, Mr Hille said
the three-man arbitration:
panel "unanimously found"
that RHS Ventures and Mr
Stein had "been properly
removed 'for cause'" as the
New South Ocean project's
general/developer partner in
October 2008, a date that was
almost two years' ago.

Despite a $2.9 million
award being made against
RHS Ventures and Mr Stein,
Plainfield's attorneys argued
that the project had contin-
ued to languish, with the golf
course - its key asset - and
other development compo-

nents, such as the 375 acres
of real estate, depreciating in
value.

"Nonetheless, [RHS Ven-
tures and Mr Stein] continue
to refuse to-abide by the arbi-
tration award, and to prevent
petitioners from assuming the
rightful role as general part-
ner," Mr Hille alleged.

"As a result of respondents'
ongoing misconduct, the part-
nership (in which [Plain-
field/Seaside] have invested,
and lost, in excess of $85 mil-
lion) continued to remain in

ungovernable limbo. Respon- |

dents' latest delay tactic
should not be permitted."

The South Ocean case also
highlights how the fate of
valuable Bahamian resort and
other properties, plus valu-
able parcels of real estate, is
increasingly being decided in
foreign courts, which devel-
opers and their financiers
have selected as the primary
jurisdiction for resolving any
disputes.

marketing was only the first step to branding
Abaco as a destination if its own in the Bahamas.
The next step will be infrastructure upgrades
and more tourism development, including a one-
stop-shop airline and hotel reservations system

that will cover all the islands.

Abaco will be the starting point for the island
branding process, as it has the fastest growing '

Vincent

economy in the Bahamas and the second highest

number of visitor arrivals.

‘Mar Vanderpool-Wallace said Abaco accounts
for 28 per cent of stopover visitors to the
Bahamas, so its airport redevelopment will serve
as a model for upgrades on other islands.

The Minister of Public Works is expected to
speak to the. Abaco community today about what
will be needed to improve the Marsh Harbour
Airport and other infrastructural projects.

He told Tribune Business recently that

The Ministry hopes to dispel the widely popu-
lar belief that the extent of the Bahamas' tourism
offering is Nassau and Freeport, while educating
travellers on the other inhabited islands. Those
islands often become smothered under interna- _
tional ads that often show only snapshots of land-

‘mark properties in New Providence, or miscel-
laneous shots of beautiful blue water.

Providence property has also
denied Bahamians potential
business and employment
opportunities at a time when
they have been most needed,
due to the economic reces-
sion. The South Ocean rede-
velopment was originally
scheduled to include a 140-
room five-star resort; 400-
room four-star resort; a 40,000

square foot casino; fractional
villas; 180 timeshare units;
second homes; a convention
centre; marina; tennis facili-
ties and spa.

The draft economic impact
study for the South Ocean
project projected that it would
create 1,358 full-time jobs
when fully open, plus 1,200
construction jobs.

‘Groundhog Day’ for
Customs Department

FROM page 1B

-enforcing a requirement that Grand

Bahama Port Authority (GBPA)
licencees, who sold goods bonded to other
licencees, submit reports on such ‘over-
the-counter’ sales to it by the 15th of each
subsequent month.

Tribune Business reported last week
that there was no requirement, either in
statute, policy or a written understanding,
for GBPA licencees to submit over-the-
counter bonded goods sales reports, and
Mr Turnquest admitted that the Freeport
private sector was “very concerned” about
its relationship with Customs.

“TI know that there has been an official
request for these [over-the-counter]
reports,” the Grand Bahama Chamber pres-
ident told Tribune Business. “I wrote to
Customs on behalf of a particular member of
the Chamber last week, asking them to clar-
ify their position. They have come back to
say this is not a new policy, it is an existing
policy they are seeking to enforce.”

Mr Turnquest added that he was meet-
ing with Customs today to “talk through
this policy”. He said: “We need to talk about
what the policy has been, and what the pol-
icy is that they seek to enforce.”

The Grand Bahama Chamber chief said
he was concerned about the uncertainty
arbitrary changes in Customs’ policy could

‘create, harming the business environment

and discouraging commerce and foreign
direct investment in Freeport.

“Obviously, we’re very concerned with
the relationship we have with Customs,”
Mr Turnquest said. “We operate here with
certain assumptions and certain under-
standings [under the Hawksbill Creek
Agreement], and it seems that every now
and then Customs will enforce an arbitrary
rule or different rule, which does not give
certainty to business.

“Where you have uncertainty, you will
have investors and businesspeople not
knowing how to conduct themselves day-
to-day.

“We have issues with the way Customs
operates and conducts itself. We need clar-
ification of what the rules are, what the
requirements are going to be, what’s going

“to be enforced,.so that everyone knows

upfront what the rules are. We can’t be
going back and forth where Customs or an
element of it says one thing, another part
says another, and we do not know whether
we’re coming or going.”

Reasonable |

Mr Turnquest added: “We understand
Customs’ role to-collect revenue, but they
must be reasonable.” He added that under
the Hawksbill Creek Agreement “all the
benefits accrue to the licencees, and they
|Customs] must respect that”.

Tribune Business has subsequently been
told that Customs has warned several GBPA
licencees, orally and via ‘handwritten notes,
that unless over-the-counter bonded goods
sales reports are submitted, their trailers
will not be cleared. Mr Turnquest, though,
said he had no knowledge of such develop-

ments.

The Grand Bahama Chamber president’s
position was backed by noted Freeport-
based attorney Fred Smith QC, the Callen-
ders & Co attorney and partner, who told
Tribune Business shat it was “unbelievable”



66 We have issues with the
way Customs operates
and conducts itself. We need
clarification of what the rules
are, what the requirements
are going to be, what’s going
to be enforced, so that every-
one knows upfront what the
rules are.”
EE

that Customs would attempt to interfere
with business in Freeport given the city’s
weak economy.

A veteran of several Supreme Court vic-
tories over Customs in relation to the
Hawksbill Creek Agreement, Mr Smith
added: “This is Groundhog Day for Cus-
toms. Every few years, Customs gets a bee in
its bonnet, and tries to impose ‘arbitrary
solutions.

“It is unbelievable to me that in the cur-
rent state of Freeport’s economy, Customs
would do anything which would interfere
with commerce.”

Mr Smith echoed calls by Christopher
Lowe, the former Grand Bahama Cham-
ber of Commerce, for Customs to engage in
dialogue with the GBPA, Grand Bahama
Chamber of Commerce and the licencees, in
a bid to arrive at a solution that satisfied its
revenue needs while also protecting all rights
under the Hawksbill Creek Agreement.

Calling on the licencees to unite and form
an organisation dedicated to advancing their
interests, Mr Smith added: “It is regrettable
that half a century after the Hawksbill Creek
Agreement has been in operation in
Freeport, that there is still no unified
licencee organisation which could meet with
Customs and develop a sensible and work-
able protocol on the over- -the- counter bond-
ed goods sales.

“We have another 44 years in Freeport,
and I certainly encourage the Ministry of
Finance, the Chamber of Commerce, the
Port Authority and the licencees to get
together and come up with a workable pro-
tocol.

“This continued knee-jerk reaction by
.Customs, or draconian demands for reports,
are inappropriate in an economy such as
Freeport’s, where there is a need for co-
operation by all parties in this great Freeport
enterprise.

“Tf we don’t continue to work together, we
will continue to shoot ourselves in the foot,
continue to stagnate, and continue to fight.
It is in everyone’s interest to work together
on Customs issues. I encourage the Port
Authority to take the lead role in this mat-
ter, and avoid unnecessary conflict and busi-
ness delays in Freeport.”

Adding that there was “no crisis”, Mr
Smith told Tribune Business said that
instead of sending. out alarmist, threaten-
ing notices, “which only serve to heighten
anxiety and create stress and uncertainty”,
Customs needed to take a conciliatory
approach.

“Why must everything be resolved by cri-
sis management and/or litigation/” he asked.
‘“T have been a licencee and been dealing
with Customs issues in Freeport for decades.
I really do encourage all of us who are part-
ners in this Freeport venture, this magic
city, to try and wor this out.”




Chamber chief: MSC’s 146 per cent
fee rise ‘certainly not acceptable’

tainers from the Freeport
Container Port. This
monopoly, speculation had
it, would control both the
movement of containers
from the port to the staging
area, and then the final
delivery to the end-cus-
tomer.

No one has previously
named the supposed
monopoly provider of
MSC’s trucking services, but
multiple sources in Freeport
identified it to Tribune Busi-
ness as Freeport Ship Ser-
vices, a company headed by
Jeremy Cafferata, son of
attorney Chris Cafferata.

“From the Freeport Ship
Services point of view,
they’ve been trying to get
some sort of exclusive,” one
source said. “This has been
happening for six months at
least.”

Mr. Turnquest, mean-
while, said that while he had
no direct information, he
had “heard” from other par-
ties about Freeport Ship
Services’ interest in estab-
lishing an exclusive rela-
tionship with MSC.

Manuel Ruiz, MSC
(Bahamas) general manag-
er, has not returned Tribune

Business’s calls seeking com-
ment, but information
reaching this newspaper sug-
gests that fears about a
‘trucking monopoly’ may be
misplaced.

Kevin Bethel, of Bethel’s
Trucking Company, said the
notice he received from
MSC only stated that there
would be an increase in the
Freeport destination charge,
and it was going to include
trucking.

George Williams, of
Freeport Transfer Compa-
ny, added: “MSC has been
experiencing a lot of dam-
age to their containers and
they are trying to limit the
amount of people that can
truck their containers.

Independent

“There are a number of
independent drivers...and
they are doing a lot of dam-
age to the containers. The
port is open to everybody
and MSC is trying to regu-
late and limit the amount of
people that can truck their
containers.

Mr Turnquest, mean-
while, urged both MSC and
the Grand Bahama trucking
companies to come to a
negotiated solution for all
concerned.

“We’re for free enterprise,
and believe Bahamians have
a right to conduct business,
just as MSC has a right to
protect its equipment,” the
Grand Bahama Chamber of
Commerce’s president said.
“There has got to be a way
to work out a deal in a fair
and equitable way, whether
the truckers post a bond or
insurance requirement.
Whatever accommodation
has to be made, reasonable
people come up with rea-
sonable solutions.”

Another source said they
understood that under the
new policy, the client would
pay the delivery charge for
their container direct to
MSC, which would then
contract the trucking com-
pany.

“MSC is simply trying to
make money off the truck-
ing by charging for the ship-
ping,” the source said,
adding that it wanted to
ensure all trucking compa-
nies had posted the required
indemnity insurance and
bonds, and that they had
“the correct chassis used to
haul the containers”.

In other words, MSC is
looking for all trucking com-
panies that haul its contain-
ers to meet certain standards
and criteria.

France hiraces for day of strikes today

PARIS



Protesters are counting on people power to pressure the gov-
ernment to back down on its plan to up the retirement age from 60
to 62, with a second round of September strikes expected to hob-
ble public transport, air traffic and schools across France, accord-
ing to Associated Press.

Workers at the state-run train system, the SNCF, started their
strike Wednesday evening, at 1700 GMT, getting an overnight
headstart on other sectors that plan to walk off the job Thursday.

Union organizers hope to put rhore people in the streets —
and off the job — than on Sept. 7, when at least 1.1 million people

turned out to oppose President Nicolas Sarkozy's plan to increase .

the retirement age in order to save the deficit-ridden pension sys-
tem. As many as 231 protest marches are planned nationwide.

The strikes are seen as a test for the conservative Sarkozy. He has
indicated he is willing to make marginal concessions but remains
firm on the central point: increasing the retirement age from 60 to
62 and pushing back the age from 65 to 67 for those who want to
ensure full retirement benefits.

As baby boomers reach retirement age and life expectancy
increases, the government insists it is necessary to raise the retire-
ment age so the pension system can break even by 2018.

The SNCF announced that one in two fast trains during the
strike will be canceled, with regional services also only at 50 per-
cent. The Eurostar to London was not expected to be affected and
the Thalys train from Belgium was expeted to be only slightly
hit, with nine in 10 trains running. Paris commuters can expect
uneven service in the Metro and long waits on suburban lines.

College costs often
not as high as listed

CANDICE CHOI,
AP Personal Finance Writer
NEW YORK

uition figures aren't
always as scary as they
first appear. Grants,
scholarships, loans and
other factors.can help families put a

big dent in costs. The result is that

about half of college students end up

| paying less than their school's asking

price.

"So many families just assume
they're never going to be able to
afford a certain type of college," said
Anne Sturtevant, ‘director of enroll-

ment services at The College Board, a .
nonprofit association of schools that -

tracks college costs.
But the prospect of saving for

‘| school seems a lot more manageable

when taking into account various
funding resources, Sturtevant said.

Families may even realize they can

afford schools that previously seemed
out of reach.

Here's a.breakdown of the factors
that can affect what families ultimately

pay.
THE ASKING PRICE

To start, keep in mind that tuition
varies greatly and not all schools have
stratospheric costs.

Private colleges are generally the
most expensive with an average annu-
al price of $35,600 for tuition, room
and board. Public universities cost
$26,700 on average for out-of-state
students and $15,200 for in-state stu-
dents.

An increasingly. popular option in

this stalled economy is attending.a

two-year college, where the average
annual tuition and fees fall to $2,500.
But that's all before financial aid
packages are taken into account, Last
year, full-time undergraduates got an
average of $10,000 in aid.
That came in a mix of grants, schol-

arships, federal loans and work study.

A new law will soon also let families
get a better sense of what their costs
would be after aid.

Starting in October of 2011, schools
will be required to post calculators on
their websites that provide an esti-
mate of the actual price of attendance

based on a student's economic situa-

tion.

Until then; try filling out a test fPAFS

SA, or Free Application for Federal
Student Aid, to gauge how much
assistance your family might be eligi-

ble for. The FAFSA4caster on the’

Department. of Education website
takes about 30 minutes to complete,
assuming you have tax return and oth-
er financial information handy.

‘You can find it at www-fafsa4cast- -

er.ed.gov .

Employment
Opportunity

A well-established Law Firm wishes

Keep in mind that the actual aid

_packages offered will vary depending

on a school's resources and how bad-
ly it wants to attract your son or
daughter.

GRANTS & SCHOLARSHIPS

The ability to cover tuition without
adding to your debt makes grants and
scholarships the most desirable com-
ponents of financial aid packages.

This no-strings-attached money on
average accounted for about half the
aid given to.students last year, or
about $5,000 per student.

The amount awarded by the feder-
al government depends on a formula
that measures a family's economic sit-
uation. But with Pell grants, families

can get up to $5,550 a year.

The maximum grant amount will
rise to $5,975 between.2013 and 2017.

And the federal grants students are

entitled to don't change regardless of
the school they attend.

Schools also offer their own grants
or scholarships to lure high-achieving
students. Students can further offset
costs by applying for additional schol-

‘arships on their own.

FEDERAL LOANS:

Ideally your child won't have to
take out any loans. But if necessary,
remember that federal loans come
with lower interest rates than private
loans.

They also come with greater bene-

' fits and safeguards. For example, bor-

rowers who earn modest salaries after
graduation can. apply to have pay-
ments:capped at 15 percent of their

-discretionary income.

Eligibility for the program is deter-
mined by a formula that weighs a per-
SOii'S income against his or-her debt
load. A calculator at www. ibrinfo.org
can help borrowers determine eligi-
bility. Starting in 2014, payments for
new loans will be capped at*10 percent
of income. The program also forgives
any remaining debt after 25 years.
Workers in public service have loans

forgiven after 10 years.

Graduates who can't find work or
don't earn much can opt to defer pay-

to employ a- competent Attorney

in the area’ of Litigation. The ideal

candidate should:

¢ Have at least five (5) years
experience and possess a
_ thorough working knowledge
in Commercial Litigation with
the ability to draft documents and

ments under fairly clear-cut guide-
lines. With private loans, it's up to the
lender to decide whether to grant
relief. For the neediest students, the
government also picks up the interest
costs while students are in school.

WORK STUDY

Parents may worry that having a
job. can hinder a student's academic
pursuits. But the federal work-study
program that provides jobs to stu-
dents as part of their financial aid
package usually doesn' t exceed 15
hours a week.

Schools also try to place students
in jobs related to fields they're inter- '
ested in. So a biology major might get
job in a science lab and a business
major might be placed in an office
setting. The routine of an on-campus
job’can also boost a student's acade-
mic performance, notes Sturtevant of
The College Board.

"If you have a job, you have to
organize the rest of your life so you
tend to have better study habits," she
said. "And you're automatically
engaged in the campus community."

Alternately, students may be able to
find more lucrative part-time work
on their own in a field that interests
them.

TAX BENEFITS

Another way to offset college costs
is with tax credits and deductions.
Many middle-class families qualify for
them too.

This year, the American Opportu-
nity Credit lets families claim a tax
credit of $2,500 per student. That's
$700 more than the Hope tax credit it
replaced. The full credit is available to
those who earn up to $80,000, or up to
$160,000 for married couples filing a
joint return. A tax credit directly low-
ers the amount owed in taxes, unlike
a deduction which lowers taxable
income. Those with incomes of less
than $70,000 can also claim deduc-
tions of up to $2,500 on student loan
interest payments. For a full list of

Oil prices slip as supplies continue to grow

BUSINESS

NEW YORK

Oil prices slid Wednesday
after the government said
stockpiles of oil and gaso-
line grew last week, even
though a major pipeline
serving Midwest refineries
was shut because of a leak,
according to Associated
* Press.

Benchmark crude for
November delivery lost 70
cents at $74.27 a barrel in
midday trading on the New
York Mercantile Exchange.

The gains in crude and
gasoline supplies surprised
many traders and analysts
who expected a drop
because of the closed
Enbridge.Energy Partners
pipeline that carried Cana-
dian crude to refineries in
Wisconsin and Indiana. The
pipeline restarted Friday,
eight days after it was closed
because of a leak.

The Energy Departmen-
t's Energy Information
Administration said com-
mercial crude inventories
increased by 1 million bar-
rels to 358.3 million barrels
for the week ending Sept.
17.

PUMPING GAS: In this Sept. 8, 2010 photograph, a Costco customer pumps gas at a Costco in Redwood

day after a leak forced the closure of a Chicago-are

of 1.5 million barrels,
according to Platts, the ener-
gy information arm of
McGraw-Hill. Platts senior
oil analyst Linda Rafield
said the increase came from
more crude imports.

She also pointed out that
crude inventories are build-
ing as refineries slow down
for seasonal maintenance
and use less petroleum.

Gasoline supplies rose by
1.6 million barrels to 226.1
million barrels. Gasoline
demand over the four weeks
ended Sept. 17 averaged 9.1

million barrels a day, down
0.1 percent from the same
period of 2009.

Demand fell from the pre-
vious week by 172,000 bar-

~ rels a day to 8.8 million bar-

rels a day.

That's a six-month low
that Rafield says is "a sign
that the consumer is curtail-
ing discretionary spending."

EIA said supplies of dis-
tillate fuel, which include
diesel and heating oil, rose
by 300,000 barrels to 174.9
million barrels, which was
2.4 percent more than a year
ago.

"It looks like October and
November are going to be

warmer than normal which
is going to delay the start of

In other Nymex trading in
October contracts, heating
oil fell 2.45 cents to $2.0945
a gallon and gasoline lost
2.95 cents at $1.8901 a gal-
lon.

Natural gas rose 1.5 cents

SEC official pressed on delays in

MARCY GORDON,
AP Business Writer
WASHINGTON

Senators pressed the Securities and Exchange
Commission's chief enforcement official Wednes-
day to explain why the agency has yet to demote
or fire staffers who waited 12 years to bring
charges against a major Ponzi scheme, according
to Associated Press.

The SEC inspector general found that the
agency knew since 1997 that R. Allen Stanford
was likely operating a Ponzi scheme. But it did-
n't charge the billionaire until February 2009.
The charges came a few months after the massive
pyramid scheme of financier Bernard Madoff
surfaced.

SEC enforcement officials discouraged cases
that couldn't be resolved quickly, the inspector
general found. ©

Senate Banking Committee Chairman Christo-

pher Dodd asked SEC Enforcement Director.

Robert Khuzami why no one at the SEC has
been fired or demoted for the excessive delay.
Other senators on the panel also wanted an
answer during the hearing on the issue.

“We seem to have an instance in which one
side of the agency was screaming that there was
a fire, and the other side said that the fire was too
hard to put out," Sen. Dodd said.

Khuzami told the panel that the disciplinary
procéss is under way.

That prompted Sen. Jim Bunning to say: "It's
been 13 years. Isn't that enough of a chance?"

Khuzami responded that the details of the
SEC's failure in the case only have been known

.since the inspector general's report was issued in
April. .

Khuzami also said the agency has toughened its
efforts to shut down financial misconduct since
the past failures.



He said the SEC is working to provide "max-

imum recovery" to investors hurt in-Stanford's..-;4

alleged $7 billion fraud.

Inspector General David Kotz also found that
the former head of enforcement in the SEC's
Fort Worth, Texas office, who helped quash
investigations of Stanford, later represented the
billionaire as a private lawyer. Kotz indicated at
the hearing that he has referred the matter to the
Justice Department for possible criminal prose-
cution in connection with statements he made
to SEC ethics officers.

Kotz also said the official's representing Stan-
ford appeared to violate Texas's rules for lawyers.

The official briefly represented Stanford in
2006 before being told by the SEC ethics office
that it was improper for him to do so, Kotz testi-
fied. \ :

Reforms

Kotz said the reforms in the SEC's enforce;
ment and inspections operations that Khuzami
outlined may not have yet taken hold at the low-

' er levels of the agency.

"T think that the intention is there," he said. "I
think it takes time for a culture to be changed."

Stanford has been in federal prison since his
indictment in June 2009 on criminal charges that
his international banking business was really a
pyramid scheme. He is disputing the charges.
He faces a life sentence if convicted.

Kotz's office has also found that the agency
bungled five investigations into Madoff's business

between June 1992 and December 2008. Madof- -

f's fraud, which could be the biggest Ponzi scheme
in history, destroyed thousands of people's life
savings, wrecked charities and jolted investor
confidence during the worst days of the financial
crisis.

‘Stocks waver as traders
move into Treasurys, gold

STEPHEN BERNARD,
AP Business Writer
NEW YORK

Traders put their September
stock rally on hold and moved
into Treasurys and gold
Wednesday, a day after the
Federal Reserve said it was
ready to take more action to
boost the economy, according
to Associated Press.

The Dow Jones industrial
average fell 21 points in after-
noon trading. .

With no new economic data
out Wednesday and the Fed's
announcement late Tuesday
having a bigger impact on the
bond and currency markets,
Bob Auer, portfolio manager
of the Auer Growth Fund, said
it was natural for stocks to
pause.

Major indexes have been on
a tear this month as economic
reports have consistently indi-
cated the economy continues
to grow, albeit slowly. :

-"People are saying, 'I've got
some profits, let's book 'em,'"
Auer said. Entering Wedres-
day, the Dow had risen 13 of
the past 15 days and climbed
7.5 percent so far in Septem-

Investors had little incentive
to move more money into
stocks, so they turned their
focus to bonds and gold. Trea-
surys rose again, pushing their
yields lower, and gold climbed
to another record.

If the Fed starts purchasing
bonds, it would have the dual
effect of raising demand for

Treasurys and hurting the value

of the dollar. That's why bond
prices rallied Wednesday and
traders swapped out dollars for
gold.and other currencies.

The Dow fell 21.00, or 0.2
percent; to 10,740.18 in after-
noon trading.

The Standard & Poor's 500
index fell 4.88, or 0.4 percent, to
1,134.90, while the Nasdaq com-

posite index fell 18.37, or 0.8
percent, to 2,330.98.

The yield on the 10-year
Treasury note, which moves
opposite to its price, fell to 2.52
percent from 2.58 percent late
Tuesday. Its yield is often used
to set interest rates on mort-
gages and other loans.

Gold climbed to a record
$1,298.00 an ounce before
falling back to $1,292.70 an
ounce.

The euro hit a five-month
high against the dollar.

In corporate news, Microsoft
Corp. shares dipped 69 cents,
or 2.7 percent, to $24.46 after
the company said it was raising
its dividend for the first time in
two years. :

Adobe Systems Inc. shares
plummeted after the computer
software maker said its fiscal
third-quarter profit surged, but
it said revenue during the cur-
rent quarter will likely fall short
of expectations. Adobe shares
fell $6.34, or 19.3 percent, to
$26.60. ;

About two stocks fell for
every one that rose on the New

volume came to 519.7 million

average fell 0.4 percent.

AMR shares fall after disappointing outlook

DAVID KOENIG,
AP Airlines Writer
DALLAS

Shares of American Airlines
parent AMR Corp. tumbled
more than 9 percent Wednes-
day afternoon after the compa-
ny's outlook for stronger rev-
enue failed to impress some
analysts.

The company said late Tues-
day that third-quarter unit rey-
enue, or total revenue divided
by available seats times miles
flown, would grow: between 9.8
percent and 10.8 percent com-
pared with.a year ago.



- At a time when many airlines
have been boosting revenue
with higher fares ‘and fees on
checked baggage, analysts’
comments suggested that
AMR's outlook wasn't rosy
enough. Three of them widened

' their estimates of AMR's full-

year losses.

JP Morgan analyst Jamie

_members watch Jose
Manuel Barroso, Presi-
dent of the European
Commission, delivering
his statement on the state
of the Union at the Euro-
pean Parliament in Stras-
bourg, eastern France,
Tuesday Sept. 7, 2010. In
his first State of the Union

nomic reform in the wake
of the crisis must be
accelerated and added he
would propose taxes on
financial activities in the
next month or two.

A look at economic developments and activity in major stock markets around the world onWednes-
day: :

BRUSSELS — The European Union Parliament approved creation of new financial over-
sight institutions aimed at preventing another financial crisis like the one that led to massive
bank bailouts at taxpayer expense. ;

The parliament overwhelmingly backed the plan to set up watchdog boards for the financial mar-
kets, banking and insurance sectors in addition to a European board to.make sure the EU can avoid
new crises. The institutions should become active at the beginning of next year. \

Parliamentary approval in Strasbourg, France, was the last hurdle for the plans, which were hailed
as a major step forward in EU-wide financial management. The EU member states had already
approved them earlier this month. :

LONDON — Pursuit of "the fast buck" is undermining Britain's economy, a government min-
ister said as he announced a review of corporate governance, executive pay and takeovers.
’ Vince Cable, who heads the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills, spoke at the
annual conference of the Liberal Democrats, the junior partner in Prime Minister David Cameron's
Conservative-led coalition government. ‘

LONDON — The euro hit a five-month high above $1.34, while European shares fell after the
Federal Reserve hinted that it was ready to provide more assistance to the weak U.S. economy, the
world's largest. gs

The FTSE 100 index of leading British shares closed down 0.4 percent, Germany's DAX fell 1.1
percent and the CAC-40 in France was 1.3 percent lower.

TOKYO — Earlier in Asia, Japan's Nikkei 225 stock average closed down 0.4 percent as the yen
strengthened, Hong Kong's Hang Seng-added 0.2 percent. Markets were closed for holidays in South
Korea, mainland China and Taiwan.

LISBON, Portugal — Portugal. raised euro750 million ($1 billion) ina debt auction that drew:
strong investor interest, but its borrowing cost was the highest since it joined the euro, underlin-
ing market worries about the country's financial health. The Portuguese sale follows solid bond auc-
tions Tuesday in other indebted countries: Ireland, Spain and Greece. The ability of those gov-
ernments to raise money relieved some short-term market pressure. ~

However, the high interest rates from the Portuguese auction deepened worries about how the
country will service its debt in the long term amid anemic growth.

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — A senior Dubai finance official predicts the UAE economy
will top $272 billion this year, suggesting a strong recovery forthe Arab world's second-biggest econ-
omy. ae

He said the rise came from increased liquidity and growth in important sectors such as trade, trans-
port and finance. eM

: —, &

BERLIN — Shares of Deutsche Bank AG dropped sharply after the bank said it expected to post
a third-quarter net loss because it plans to absorb a big charge related to an acquisition.

Deutsche: Bank expects a euro2.3 billion ($3.1 billion) charge stemming from its planned
takeover of retail lender Deutsche Postbank AG to result in the loss for the quarter.

It said that, even before the charge, it expectéd a profit "significantly below" the level of last year's
third quarter — "consistent with its earlier expectations and the poorer market conditions during
the summer months."

ATHENS, Greece — Protesting truck drivers blocked traffic on Greece's two busiest highways
and clashed with police.in front of parliament as lawmakers approved a shake-up of labor market
rules as part of an agreement for international rescue loans.

The drivers, protesting for a 10th day, sealed off the highways outside Athens minutes after par-
liament voted in favor of legislation to scrap restricted licensing rules for trucks.

Greece has promised to reform its labor market as part of austerity measures agreed in return
for euro110 billion ($144 billion) in rescue loans from European countries and the International
Monetary Fund. :

BUCHAREST, Romania — Romania needs to borrow almost euro6 billion ($7.9 billion) next
year to cover its budget deficit.and plans to sign a new deal with the International Monetary Fund
in 2011 to shore up the ailing economy, the, president said. Meanwhile, at least 10,000 people protest-
ed in Bucharest against wage cuts and other austerity measures, authorities said. Angry protesters
-were demanding the government increases salaries to the 2009 level and stop layoffs of public work-
ers. Authorities slashed public sector wages and hiked sales tax to reduce the budget deficit, as the
IMF had requested. President Traian Basescu said the country still needed help with its finances,

and said that spending cuts would continue.

‘Oficial opening of the George
I. Smith Preparatory School

By ALESHA CADET
Tribune Features Writer

NDER the motto “Moving
| Forward In Faith, Leaving
No Child Behind”, the new
George T Smith Preparatory
school officially opened on
Monday, September 6.

The mission of George T Smith
Preparatory School is to train young peo-
ple academically, spiritually, socially and
physically and to equip them with the
necessary tools that’ would produce
viable, matured, responsible, Christian
leaders in the home, work-place and the
community. The school will operate
under the objective of providing quality
education from a Christian perspective.
The goals for the school are to extract
and enhance their God given gifts and
talents that would serve as a springboard
in becoming practical, polished, produc-
tive, and peaceful citizens of the
Bahamas. ;

Reverend Patrick Smith, pastor of the
Evangelic Assembly Church, Blue Hill
Road & Fleming Street told Tribune
Religion that In the wake of the accelera-

tion of crime among our youth and the
low academic achievement as seen mani-
fested in the National grade point aver-
age, "I have been moved to take a leap

of faith in establishing the George T .

Smith Preparatory school, cultivating a

_ . hew path in academic excellence."
Pastor Smith expressed that the

Evangelic Assembly Church is in the
heart of Bain and Grants town. " For the
past ten years, I have served as the exec-
utive secretary of the Bahamas National
Baptist Missionary and Educational
Convention which ended in May of this
year," he said.

" I was led to name the school after my
grand-father George Trevor Smith, who

LAID TO REST: Attendees at the funeral of the late Charlotte Young who was laid to rest in the settlement of Weymss on September 18, 2010.

An unsung native of -
Eleuthera laid to rest

any panaiats have
M never heard about

Charlotte Aramintha
McKinney Young but this giant of
a lady although short in stature
was laid to rest in the quaint set-
tlement of Weymss on Saturday
September 18, at the church
where she once taught Sunday
school. It was reminiscent of a
homecoming or regatta celebra-
tion. Charlotte Young 91 years old
was a native of Weymss Bight and
only left the settlement to reside
with her daughter because of fail-
ing health.

Priests from a cross section of the
country came to celebrate the legacy of
Charlotte’s life. In attendance were Fr
Shazzasbazzar Turnquest, Rector of St
Luke’s an accomplished musician who
played the organ, Archdeacon I.
Ranfurly Brown- who once served as
Archdeacon for Eleuthera, Fr Rodney
Burrows who preached the sermon, Fr
Joseph Mycklewhyte, Fr James Moultrie-
native of Weymss Bight, Fr Lamuel Been
and Fr Andrew Toppin-once rectors of St
Luke’s, Fr Chester Burton former‘curate

Eee Saad pie . eat oe imany. priests in, her home ‘and. eventually.

St. Luke’s.

The priests were proud to be partakers
of this historic moment in time. All
priests spoke of her dependability and
love of the Anglican Church and remem-
bered that she was referred to as the
‘Queen of Weymss Bight’. Every
Christmas her house in Weymss Bight
would be the beehive of activity as her
children and grandchildren came home
to celebrate the joyous season of
Christmas with the Matriarch of the
Young family. :

She possessed a humble spirit that
spoke volumes to her offspring and they
should be able to follow in her footsteps
and many have already taken a page out

_of ‘Momma Charlotte’ book.

In Fr Burrows’ sermon he commended
Charlotte for doing her civic duty in rear-
ing her children in the fear and nurture of

Almighty God. Charlotte was once a>

teacher ‘at the primary school and also

served as Sunday school teacher. And she’

also hosted and entertained many priests
and bishops in the confines of her home.

Fr Burrows maintained that because of
her stellar duty in her maintaining her
household her daughters came up
through the ranks and did the same thing,

that will be evident in years to come in
her daughter’s life. Millie was the daugh-
ter she resided with in Nassau and he
commented whenever he took her com-
munion and Millie was present she would
always have a hot sumptuous meal pre-
pared for him. And finally Margaret
affectionately called ‘Muggy’ is the chef
extra ordinaire who serves up the lavish
dishes for synod delegates who attend
the Anglican Diocesan Synod held in
October each year.

He stated by the fruits you shall know
them. Charlotte always in her illness
exhibited a strong awareness and belief
in Almighty God. Many traveled from
far as Gregory Town in the North to cel-
ebrate her home going of Charlotte.

Also in attendance was Member of
Parliament for J. Oswald Ingraham
andJohnley Ferguson. This would be a
celebration of life for a woman who lived
in the shadow of the cross and brought
her children in the same way.

At the culmination of the Eucharistic
celebration the Preston Albury High

sion of altar servers, lay’ readers,

Ohio artist rescues statues

from closing churches

LAKEWOOD, Ohio

LOU McClung's past life as a handyman,
and his present career as a photographer,
makeup artist and manufacturer, were per-
fect preparation for his future as a curator
of an unusual museum, according to the
Associated Press. at

The owner of Lusso Studio and Lusso |
Statuary recently purchased a decommis- |
sioned church, 104-year-old St. Hedwig,
which will serve as the Museum of Divine
Statues.

McClung said his mission to rescue reli-
gious statues, many of which come from
parishes closed recently by the Cleveland
Catholic Diocese, will help ensure the his-
tory of those churches.

Several statues many more than a centu-

ry old were in great need of cleaning and
repair. Stuffed in closets, storage rooms
and choir lofts, some pieces fell victim to a
push for modernism in the 1960s and
1970s.
' "It's interesting how all the little things
you learn to do can contribute," he said.
"You wonder why you're doing things, then
it comes in handy for something like this."

McClung, who has been footing the
restoration costs out of his own pocket,
taught himself how to clean and repaint the
pieces, as well as craft missing fingers and
arms.

"My goal as an artist is to make the stat-
ues as realistic as possible," he said. -

o much to learn

NOW that we have just about completed
the Back-To-School activities, our minds
fill with a variety of thoughts whether we
have school-age children or not. Let us
consider just some of the possibilities.

For the children, it can be a relief to
move back into a structured routine, to
meet old friends, and to wear new uniforms
which measure the growth that has
occurred since last year.

The fact of being one year nearer to
graduation may captivate some, while the
thought of acquiring new skills and ideas
may motivate others to try even harder this
year. There are stories to tell, jokes to
exchange, if it is a return to familiar

ground, or ‘the challenge of making new
friends and learning a different culture if
this year brings the shift to unknown terri- -
tory. . .

Parents are dealing with their own set of
emotions associated with watching the
“baby” leaving the nest, finding money for

safety on the streets, better grades, and
hassle-free home-work. The time does fly
when we look back, but day to day it may

seem like an eternity.

For the hard-working teachers, other
thoughts arise. Adjustments are already
being made to prepare materials for new

- grades, to settle into a new school, to wel-

come a new principal, or to celebrate reno-
vations. Their prayers may focus more on
more patience, improved student behav-
iour and academic excellence, parent coop-
eration and increased home-work supervi-
sion, cordial staff relations and the pleas-
ures derived from successful extra-curricu-
lar activities




Motorists are already considering alter-
native routes as they recognise the change
in traffic, flow, while police officers know
that pedestrians will have a hard time
crossing streets and always appeal to adults
to keep an eye out for our little ones.
Lunch vans and others who sell snacks to
children are all stocked and in full swing
now: .

I pray that we are all back in the school
of life to learn about kindness and care,
love and loyalty, about our need for God to
guide our decisions. How grateful are we
really for our blessings? How appreciative
are we of the efforts of others to make the
world a beautiful place? How strong are
we when faced with the temptation to be
lawless? What would we find ourselves
doing as a desperate person in a desperate
situation? Let us pray for us all to be spiri-
tually prepared to allow adverse conditions
to bring out the best in us. We truly need
the Lord more than ever.

ELIJAH is one of my favourite Bible characters.
Never had a man of God enjoyed a greater moment
than his experience at Mt Carmel. Boldness, faith,
power, obedience and effective prayer describe
Elijah as he stood with the worshippers of Baal.

But deliverance in J Kings 18 was followed by dis-
couragement in J Kings 19. His attitude went from
boldness before God to blaming God for his trouble.
What happened? Fear replaced faith, power was
drained by pity, and disobedience replaced obedi-
ence.

How quickly things changed! Sounds familiar?
Examine J Kings 19 and you will discover the four-
thoughts on discouragement.

First of all, discouragement hurts our self-image:

While he himself went a day's journey into the
desert, he came and sat down under a tree and
prayed that he might die. “I have had enough,
Lord,” he said. “Take my life; I am no better than my
ancestors.” / Kings chapter 19:4.

Discouragement causes us to see ourselves less
than we really are. This fact becomes even more
important when we realise that we cannot consistent-
ly perform in a manner that is inconsistent with the
way we see ourselves.

Secondly, discouragement causes us to evade our
responsibilities:

There he went into a cave and spent the night.
And the Word of the Lord came to him: “What are
you doing here Elijah?” (Verse 9 N.I.V.) Elijah was
called to do great exploits but here we see him hiding
because of fear. Faith brings us to ministry. Fe
hands us only misery. ;
Thirdly, discouragement causes us to
blame others for our predicament:

As he said, “I have been
very zealous for the







The fear of discourasement





BISHOP VG
CLARKE

Lord, the God of host: for the sons of Israel have for-
saken thy covenant, torn down thine altars and killed
thy prophets with the sword and I alone am left: and
they seek my life to take it away.” (Verse 10)

Fourth, discouragement causes us not to be able to
see the facts:

“Yet, I will leave seven thousand in Israel, all the
knees that have not bowed to Baal and every mouth
that has not kissed him”. (Verse 18)

‘Discouragement had done a number on this great

prophet and if it happened to him what about us and
what about others?

Discouragement is contagious. You may have
heard the story of the fellow who was about to jump
from a bridge. An alert police officer slowly method-
ically moved towards him, simultaneously talking to
him. The would-be jumper told the policeman that
his wife had left him and his business was bankrupt.
To him everything in life had lost meaning.

We are all subject to the currents of discourage-
ment that can sweep us into a danger zone. If we.can
determine the causes of discouragement we can eas-
ily avoid it.

e Discouragement comes when we feel that oppor-
tunity for success is gone.

e Discouragement comes when we become selfish.

Usually people who are discouraged are thinking
mainly about one thing - themselves.

Don't let discouragement get the better part of you
in your pursuit to achieving your goal. :
To achieve anything in life you must learn how to
deal with discouragement. :

All Saints Usher Board Ministry
celebrates 30th Anniversary —

ALL SAINTS Usher. Board Ministry,

New Providence, celebrated its 30th:

anniversary on Sunday, September 12,
with Evensong led by lay minister,
Delores Rolle assisted by lay minister,

Janet Nixon with the Benediction con-

ducted by Fr S Sebastian Campbell UH,
Rector of All Saints Anglican Parish.
Usher Board Ministries from other
Anglican churches namely: Holy Cross,
St Agnes, Christ The King, Holy Spirit, St
Anne’s and St Gregory’s were in atten-
dance. The Old Testament. lesson was
read by Melonie Miller from 1 Kings 19:8-
21 and the New Testament lesson was
read by Maxine Leary from 1 Peter 4:7-
12. The organist for..the evening was
Agatha Campbell.
Necole Saunders,

past president,

-explained that the Usher ministry has set -

aside the month of September to give
God thanks for his direction and loving

kindness to his people. The celebration
began on Saturday September 11 with the
10th Annual Fun, Run and Walk. The
winners at the Fun, Run Walk are:
Yvonne Bain, Ist place;

Godfrey Lundy, 2nd place; Nadia
Major, 3rd place; Fr. Campbell, 4th and
Shirley Smith, honorable mention for
completing the walk.

Hope Curry, People’s Warden
Anne’s gave the address.

She told the ushers that their job is
more than showing people to their seats
and passing out books.

“You have a very important Ministry in
the preparation of a person's journey to
Heaven ...You are doing a duty to God
and your church. You are a servant of the

at St

Lord and as a servant you must put the

interest of others above yourself. Your
ministry. will determine if a member or
visitor returns to church. In contrast your

ministry to the church, is like that of an
immigration officer at the port of entry to
our country.”

She challenged all the ushers to be
good ambassadors for Christ, placing
emphasis on always arriving to service at
least one half hour before service starts ,
so they have personal time to connect
with God before service.

“ In addition, ushers must’ prepare by
having the bulletins, hymn books, prayers
books and Bibles ready for distribution
and anything else that is required to par-
ticipate in the worship service. - Your
offering bags or baskets. should be in
place, you might also be required to make
provisions in the event a reader does not
show. Be ready and willing to assist those
elderly members, and do not forget the
physically challenged members they too
require special attention. In case-a:read-
er.do not show make. sure that you



arrange for someone to fill in.

She added that ushers should always
welcome guests with a warm and friendly
greeting. Ms. Curry recalled an experi-
ence at church where the usher greeted
her by saying :“look who the cat drag in!

“I got nothing from that service
because I was thinking ... what I should
of told her ...what I was going to tell her

..So I spent the whole. time thinking sin-
fully...... USHERS. your job is to win
souls for Christ not to judge. You are to
make each and every person feel wel-
come and comfortable. Your approach
can do more harm than good, so be Lare-
ful when you speak because you never
know what that

person is going through, they could be
in search of a church home and your
warm welcome and attitude could be the
deciding factor in them making up their
mind. Allow your visitors to fill out a vis-
itor card and be sure that you follow up
with a phone call or a letter within the
week. In Paul’s First Letter to
Corinthians: 15:58 and it reads “Always
give yourselves fully to the work of the
Lord, because you know that your labor
in the lord is not in vain.”

Executive Officers include: Tiffany
Gaitor, President; Donna Turnquest, Vice
President; Necole Saunders, Treasurer;
Sandra Johnson, Asst. Treasurer;
Leamorn Seymour, Secretary and Pamela

Pastor Dave Burrows set to release new movie which
seeks to curb deviant behaviour in young people

By JEFFARAH GIBSON
Tribune Features Writer

ANY people say the vio-

lence among young people

is like a Hollywood movie
scene.

In hopes of diminishing negativity
among young people Pastor Dave
Burrows is releasing a new movie which
seeks to curb deviant behaviours and
evoke a change among the young people.

“Showtime” movie release is a heart-
warming positive event that is produced
by young Bahamians with the help of
Pastor Dave Burrows. The event is the
official movie release of “Showtime”.

Showtime is the story of a young rap
artist Lil Weazel who struggles to turn his
life around after getting involved in the
dark side of the music industry.

A series of events causes him to
rethink the impacts that his lyrics are hay-
ing on young people. His lifestyle also has

a negative impact on him personally.

One of the major events that impacts
“Lil Weazel” is his appearance on a talk
show with other rappers and contempo-
rary artists hosted by a popular female
talk show host “Casey Anderson”.

He receives important insight and clar-
ity from a reformed female artist and a
popular pastor who works with young
people.

In a recent interview with Tribune
Religion, pastor Dave Burrows said that
in making the film, he thought to include
issues that young people can relate to. °

“We are trying to produce movies for
young people that addresses current
issues they are faced with. We want to
show young people that there is a better
way,” he said.

He said schools have already requested
the movie to be shown to students. Mr
Burrows feels that this will have a positive
impact on them. |

“The movie is geared toward young
people. It addresses the culture and it is

important for young people to know that
the life that these artists live is not reality
and they are only selling records.
However this same music can be turned
into something good,” he said.

Pastor Burrow said that people should
come out and see the movie because it is:
“funny, entertaining and inspirational and
is sure to leave viewers. feeling fulfilled
and inspired to live positive, Godly lives.

“Showtime” is the brainchild of pastor
Dave Burrows and Tyrone J Burrows,
head of the drama and moviemaking
team of Collage Entertainment. The
movie is produced and edited by Glen
Sherman a a young producer and editor.
The trio hails from TYC (Total Youth
Church a division of Bahamas Faith
Ministries). _

Showtime stars Dedrick Pitter and
Davrielle Burrows and features a number
of other gifted young actors and actresses
including Natesha Anderson, Nicholas
Chesney, Giovanna Swaby, Dyaria
Knowles along with a host of others from
the Collage andTYC teams.

The event is scheduled for Friday
October lat 8pm at the Diplomat Center
Theater, Carmichael Road and it is for
the entire family.

Admission is just $5 and proceeds will
aid the continuing youth ministry ‘of
Collage, TYC and Youth Alive in their





work to further impact youth of today.

Special showings. for school students
are scheduled on September 30 and
October lat 10 am. :

Injured tourists ‘forced to
pay for treatment, transport’

By AVA TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter
aturnquest@tribunemedia.net

TWO paramedics have been
suspended following claims that
they forced injured tourists to
pay for treatment and transport
to hospital.

The actions of the two-mem-
ber crew are now being investi-
gated by bosses at Emergency
Medical Services.

It is alleged that two visitors
injured in a traffic accident
were the victims of extortion —
having been told they would
have to pay up-front for treat-
ment and transport.

The tourists were said to be
riding a scooter at the time of
the accident, but it is not known
if another vehicle was involved.

EMS director Dr Avery
Hanna confirmed, the crew has

been suspended pending fur-
ther investigations.

Dr Hanna said the Public
Hospitals Authority (PHA),
which oversees EMS, takes the
allegations “extremely serious-
ly” and has forwarded the mat-
ter to the disciplinary commit-
tee.

“As with any accusation, we
have to ensure the appropriate
investigation takes place,” she
said.

The director said the inquiry
is in the advanced stages and
will be finished in a matter of
weeks, but declined to give fur-
ther details until the final report
is complete.

According to Tribune
sources, the amount in ques-
tion was $400, but Dr Hanna

_ said she could not confirm or

deny this.
She also declined to confirm

men attacked him at about 8pm. He was stabbed multiple
times. His name was not available at press time.

Debate on
Baha Mar
work permits
put off again

By ALISON LOWE
Tribune Staff Reporter
alowe@tribunemedia.net

A parliamentary debate on
the 8,150 work permits for Chi-
nese and other foreign labour-
ers to work on Baha Mar was
again postponed yesterday as
executives for the company
have yet to come to a final
agreement with Scotia Bank
over the multi-million dollar
loan that stands between them-
selves and access to the $2.5 bil-
lion offered by a Chinese bank
to build the resort.

Prime Minister Hubert
Ingraham gave this update yes-
terday in parliament.

It was during the last meeting
of parliament on September 8,
that the Chinese labour reso-
lution — which calls for parlia-
ment’s approval for the entry
of an “unprecedented” number
of foreign workers into the
country over the life of the con-
struction of the Baha Mar
resort — was first proposed to
be debated.

However, at that time the
prime minister stated that he
felt it would be more appropri-
ate for the debate and vote on
the labour matter to wait until
Baha Mar and Scotia Bank
have come to an agreement on
how to resolve the outstanding
loan. The Export Import Bank
of China, which has agreed to
fund the $2.5 billion Baha Mar
project, has said it will not
release those funds until the
Scotia loan has been paid off
by Baha Mar.

Mr Ingraham told parliament
on September 8: “It is expected
that all outstanding matters will
be resolved within the next two-
week period.”

He revealed that Baha Mar's
principals were set to meet with
Scotia executives in Toronto
the following week and sug-
gested yesterday and today
would therefore be a “more
appropriate time” to carry out
the debate.

But yesterday he advised that

‘the company had not been suc-

cessful in concluding the matter
during the two week period and
continue to negotiate.

“T am advised the parties
have made progress and are
continuing their engagement
but there is no final agreement.
If any is reached today we can
happily come back tomorrow
and have the debate. If not, we
can come back if and when the
parties agree,” said the prime
minister.

The attorneys had to

were able to set a date for the
trial, which is expected to go
on for at least three days.

Fraser will provide sworn
testimony and call at least 25

The trial, which Mrs
Bethel is keen to close
before the end of the year, is
Fraser’s second trial as he
was acquitted in 2007, but
the Court of Appeal
ordered a retrial.

The Pilgrim Baptist Tem-

Fraser is currently on

PROGRESSIVE LIBERAL PARTY LASHES OUT AT MINISTER OF FOREIGN. AFFAIRS

Symonette accused of lecturing’
straw vendors arrested in the US

By PAUL G TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter
turnquest@tribunemedia.net



THE Progressive Liberal
Party blasted Minister of For-
eign Affairs Brent Symonette
yesterday for “lecturing” the
nine Bahamian straw vendors
arrested in New York City ear-
lier this week.

As Mr Symonette, who is
also the deputy prime minister,
is currently in New York to
attend the United Nations Gen-
eral Assembly, the PLP peti-
tioned him to visit with the
straw vendors, stating that he
cannot “come off as politically
impotent” in this situation.

“The Deputy Prime Minis-
ter Brent Symonette’s remarks
about the arrest of the vendors
in New York is unhelpful.
When (the Bahamas’) citizens
are in trouble they expect that
the government will come to
their assistance. Thankfully, the
technocrats in Foreign Affairs
know what their job is: to inter-

vene to ensure that there is due ©

process, that they are being
properly treated and have the
benefit of all the rights to which
they are entitled.

Help

“Now is not the time to lec-
ture people about what they
ought to be doing but rather to
seek to help in a bad situation.
From what is in the public
domain, firstly it is being said
that the Americans conducted a
surveillance operation in the
Bahamas which led to the
arrest of the individuals. A fur-
ther question is: Was the
Bahamas government aware of
the surveillance operation and
did it give its blessing to this
operation against its citizens,”
the PLP said in a statement yes-
terday.

“Tt is being said that the
Americans conducted surveil-
lance operations in New York
which led to the arrest of the
individuals. The PLP notes with
great interest and alarm that
the Federal Agents and other
US agencies apparently did not
arrest the merchants who sold
the knock-off luxury goods to
the Bahamian straw vendors.
It stands to reason that if there
are no merchants selling illegal
goods then there would be no
buyers. Will Minister’ Brent
Symonette raise this matter
with the US authorities? In
light of the government’s han-
dling of the recent case involv-
ing the ‘Barefoot Bandit’, will

the government peruse a mea-
sure of reciprocity with the US
government,” the party asked.

The PLP said that they are
deeply concerned about the
fate of the Bahamian straw ven-
dors, their rights to due process,
and the inability of Bahamian
consular officials to contact
those persons who were arrest-
ed.





“Instead of lecturing the ven-
dors, the deputy prime minister
ought to take time out from his
schedule while in New York to
ensure that the vendors are
secure and that their rights are
protected.

The PLP intends to send an
investigative team to find out
for ourselves what the situation
is in New York,” the party said.

THE LATEST scuttlebut making the

rounds of the political rumour mill is.

that by offering his resignation to Prime
Minister Hubert Ingraham, Environ-
ment Minister Earl Deveaux admitted
he was wrong to accept the invitation of
Prince Karim Aga Khan to fly in his
helicopter to the prince’s private island
in the Exumas. According to rumour
mongers it is an admission by the Min-
ister that the helicopter ride compro-

mised his ability to make an objective —

decision on the Prince’s application for
permission to develop his island in the
Exuma Land and Sea Park.

Those persons spreading the rumour
are either completely ignorant of the
Westminster system of parliamentary
government, or they are maliciously
exploiting the ignorance of the Bahami-
an people.

There are many reasons why minis-.

ters resign from Cabinet. We had an
incident as recently as March when
Branville McCartney resigned as Min-
ister of State for Immigration. Mr
McCartney said at the time:that in. the
forefront of all his issues and emotions
was his “feelings of stagnation and the

inability to fully utilise” his “political:

potential at this time.”
“We are facing tough times,” he said,
- “but I confidently believe that the nation
has been mobilized by Mr Ingrdham
and the FNM and rallied for a great
national effort. I have learned why this
> Prime Minister and Leader of the FNM
is the most successful leader of our par-
~ ty. And it is because of this that I say, I
have'’no sympathy with and will give no
credence or comfort to those who would
want to use this resignation to under-
mine his leadership of the FNM and/or
The Commonwealth of The Bahamas.”

That was one reason for a resigna-
tion.

One must remember that when a
member is elected to parliament, he is
elected by the people. However, when
he is made a Cabinet minister it is a

Deveaux’s offer does not mean guilt

position given by the prime minister —
a position that can be taken away at will
for a number of reasons. Should any-
thing arise in that ministry that could
embarrass the prime minister or his gov-

ernment, then it is the action of a gen- '

tleman to go back to the prime minister

and offer to resign. It is then up to the ©

prime minister to accept or reject the
offer.

In offering his resignation, Mr
Deveaux did not admit that he had sold

his integrity for a helicopter ride, he just -

did what was expected of him in the
ancient tradition of the Westminster
“system. Unfortunately there are not

"many gentlemen left among us today,

_ This was the same tradition followed
by the late Sir Kendal Isaacs when he
relinquished the leadership of the FNM
after he had led the party to defeat in
the 1987 election. However, Opposition
leader Perry Christie did not step down
as party leader when he lost the gov-
ernment in 2007 to the FNM. He was

* not duty bound to do so and he chose
not to follow tradition.

In the case of Mr Deveaux, Prime
Minister Ingraham could hardly punish
him for a practice that has been widely
used over the years in all administra-
tions when an investor wanted a minis-
ter to inspect a project for which he
needed permission. It was customary
for the investor to provide the trans-
port, which is what the Aga Khan did in
the case of Mr Deveaux.

_ And the. Prime Minister certainly
could not frown on Mr Deveaux after
this practice had been turned into wide-

spread abuse under the PLP govern-

~ment with investors — with issues
before cabinet and various government
' departments — even making their. air-
craft available to fly PLP candidates
around the islands during the 2007 elec-
tion.
We know that the PLP are flier) for
political bones to chew on, but it’s time
to drop this one — it’s going nowhere.

THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK

“Have Faith knowing
tomorrow will hold the
blessings of God”

SUNDAY SERVICES
7:00am, 9:00am, 14:15am





























Minister Earl
Deveaux and
the Exuma Land
and Sea Park

EDITOR, The Tribune.

First, let me begin by noting
the support and respect that I
have held for Minister
Deveaux over the years. In
my opinion, he is one of the
best Cabinet Ministers in the
current administration.
Unfortunately, he is not
judged against many top per-
formers, given the current
make-up of Cabinet, however,
I find him to be a hard work-
ing and dedicated individual.
Time will be the ultimate
judge of whether my opinion
is correct. ,

Secondly, .let me deal with
the now famous helicopter
ride. I could care less if this
helicopter flew the Minister

‘back and forth to. work each

day, as long as the taxpayer
is not footing the bill. Further,
for now, I do not think that a

. helicopter ride can influence

the Minister’s ability to make
a profound decision on behalf
of the People of this Coun-
try. I would like however to
put some other Cabinet Min-
isters on that helicopter, fly
them to Bell Island and leave
them there.

Thirdly, I do believe that

‘Minister Deveaux made a bad

judgment call in using the

‘helicopter ride for him and

his family to travel to Abaco,
which had nothing to do with
the Bell Island project. It
should have been clear that
this would create a political
firestorm and the Minister
should have taken a charter.
However, to me this is not the
larger issue and I don’t feel
that he should be sacked for
it. The future has yet to reveal




Meas

letters@tribunemedia.net



whether the Minister should
be sacked!

Now to the larger issue and
that is Bell Island in the Exu-
ma Land and Sea Park, truly
one of a kind. Let us consider
a few questions:

e Who is Aga Khan IV? He
claims to be a descendant of
the Profit Muhammed and

the 49th and current imam of —

the Sia Imani Nizari Ismailis.
Are we serious about allow-
ing such a person to develop
an island within one of the
most beautiful land and sea

parks this country, has to-

offer?

¢ Do we really need a bil-
lionaire Islamic leader in this
country? How far will we sell
ourselves for the almighty
dollar?

e What are the long term
benefits of allowing this devel-
opment? A few jobs made
available to allow someone.to
rip up our National Park to
accommodate a yacht.

e Is this Park really one of
the oldest marine parks in the
world that provides a sanctu-
ary to bird and marine life?
If so, an idiot could say no to
its development without even
needing an environmental
impact assessment.

e According to The Tri-
bune (September 14, 2010),
when copies of documents
between the Ministry of The
Environment and BNT were
requested, and I quote, “the
file was taken away and made

the subject of a meeting.”
Why? Perhaps the Minister
could tell us.

e Why has BNT gone quiet
on the issue and now claim it
is too political? It is just as
well they remain quiet now, as
any comments will be over-
shadowed by the allegation
that they received a $1 mil-
lion donation!

e Why not devote the time
wasted on this project, on
time spent facing the chal-
lenges of our land fill? We
can help the environment,
save money, create jobs, and
create energy with this one!

Mr Deveaux, as a citizen of
this country, I humbly request
that you and your cabinet col-
leagues decline this project.
(We have given away much in
this country. I certainly under-
stand that there are develop-
ments that are necessary for
our economic development,
but please don’t destroy the
Exuma Park. And don’t
destroy it for someone that
we know nothing about.
Think about the long term
effects and the future of the
Bahamas.

And no, this is not an —
unbridled, knee jerk reaction!
It is the opinion of a Bahami-
an who loves the Bahamas.

The jury is still out on Min-
ister Deveaux and his cabinet
colleagues. I trust that they
will make the right decision,
so that history will ee them
favourably.

ter, that he must not have a

sees the need for anyone

Thank you Montagu,
for repairing the Brown's
Boat Basin ramp. It is has

‘been in disrepair for far too

long.
Even though Mr Sands
appears to think that the
money. should have been
spent on the Montage ramp
instead, the two cannot be
compared. The estimates to

‘restructure the Montagu

ramp are in the millions, the
ramp at Brown's Boat
Basin, cannot even come
close.

While it has been argued

_ that it would be more eco-

nomical to remove Mon-
tagu's ramp altogether, the

_ constituency of Montagu

thinks that it is more hon-

‘ ourable to do the right thing |

by repairing it.

Most of us who are aware
of the times we live in,
and are feeling the reper-
cussions of these hard eco-

nomic times, understand
that we do what we can,
with what we _ have.

' While funding is a big obsta-

cle for the reconstruction

_ of the Montagu ramp, it is

not the only one it has and
will face.

Perhaps since Mr Sands,
who would like to be per-.:
ceived as an authority on
this matter, should assist, -
rather then criticize.

Ministry official: education system
should ‘inspire’ young people

By NOELLE NICOLLS
Tribune Staff Reporter
nnicolls@tribunemedia.net

MINISTRY of Education
officials say they do not want
to see a proliferation of “reac-
tionary programmes” to deal
with juvenile delinquency.

Olly Mae Knowles, assistant
deputy director of education,

. said there will always be oppor-
tunities for remedial pro?
grammes, but it is important
that the education system
“inspire” young people through
an “up-front” approach.

“What schools need to do,
and other agencies, is look at
how they can develop the learn-
ing potential of those students.
Underlying most behavioural
problems is a connection with
something the person feels they
are not doing well. They use
behaviour to disguise the true
problem,” said Mrs Knowles.

She said the Ministry of Edu-
cation works with a number of
altérnative education pro-

grammes (AEPs) for students
who display “unacceptable
behaviour” or cause “serious
disruptions” in class.

Programme SURE (Success
Ultimately Reassures Every-
one) and TAPS (Transitional
Alternative Programme for Stu-
dents) are two of the Ministry’s
main AEPs.

Mrs Knowles said they also
work with Urban Renewal,
church groups, the Hope Centre
Ministries and the national
Leadership, Esteem, Ability,
Discipline (LEAD) institute, as
well as others.

“Rather than going and
building more boys’ (reform)
schools,-we need to begin to

look more accurately at the

questions: Are we diagnosing
our children properly to under-
stand what is happening in their
social life? Academically, are
they connecting with what is
being taught in the schools?
“We are living in a time when
children must see the connec-
tion between what is being

Increase in special needs students
at Sir Gerald Cash Primary School

THE MINISTRY of Education noted
recently an increase in the number of special
needs students who have enrolled at the Sir

Gerald Cash Primary School.

As a result, the ministry said that it has tak-
en steps to improve the state of the facilities
that are provided for these students.

In a statement issued to the press yesterday,
the ministry said that it has provided a trailer
to the school grounds in order to accommo- —
date other students. However, the ministry
noted, some. media reports have suggested
that this trailer was intendéd for the use of

special needs students.

“These allegations are incorrect and untrue,”

the statement read.

“Just last week Desmond Bannister, Minis-



"MINISTER OF
EDUCATION:
Desmond Bannister

ter of Education, advised parents and admin-
istrators at the school that the special needs children would be
accommodated by combining the special needs classroom with
another classroom which was previously used for Spanish lessons.
“The minister has indicated that his position on the matter
remains unchanged, and accordingly, parents may be comforted by
. the knowledge that the trailer will not be used for the accommo-

taught to them and what they
feel they need to know,” said
Mrs Knowles.

“It is like saying we should
build more prisons because
there will probably be more
children going to prisons.

“Why not put more energy
into preventing children from
going to prison? Let's get our
children to be critical thinkers,”
she said.

Some youth workers say a
preventative approach should
be a major part of the solution,
and they believe a “paradigm
shift” in the education system
is needed for that to happen.

Troy Clarke, president of the

national LEAD institute, said -

the solution has to encompass
much more than “teachers
teaching properly”.

Delinquency

“It is the education system
itself. Because-of the inadequa-
cies, the education system itself
is contributing to an increase in
juvenile delinquency, the pro-
liferation of at-risk behaviour,
the increase in criminal activities
by youth in our country,” said
Mr Clarke.

He said a “zero tolerance”
approach by schools is under-
standable, but “you still have to
provide an alternative to those
set of students who may be hav-
ing challenges as it relates to
being at-risk in the school sys-
tem, whether they are at-risk
academically or behaviorally,”
he said.

Pastor Carlos Reid, head pas-
tor at the Hope Centre, said
despite how much he speaks
about the influence of gangs in
schools, he believes youth vio-
lence is really about an “identi-
ty” crisis, stemming from what

‘children: are taught in school.
He said education-has to be ©

made relevant to the times and
the needs of people.

“Most of the fights is because
someone disses you. If you

realise that what another per- °

son says about you doesn’t have

to become your reality, then it.
wouldn’t matter. (The educa- -

tion system should) make us

‘feel good about ourselves so we

don’t think the only way we
have to get our two minutes of
fame is doing the bunny hop
down Bank Lane,” said Pastor
Reid,

Tn the meantime, Pastor Reid
said, “reactive programmes that
deal with intervention” are
essential because the problems

Disaster
onference
on Grand
Bahama



AT THE READY: Participants of a disaster preparedness conference
in Grand Bahama.

TO address the northern
Bahamas’ disaster preparedness,
US Northern Command
(USNORTHCOM) partnered
with the National Emergency
Management Agency (NEMA)
to participate in a disaster con-
ference on Grand Bahama this
week.

Partnerships such as those
between NEMA and
USNORTHCOM allow for
nations to draft plans and undet-
stand each other’s capabilities if
the need were to arise for a call
for assistance.

The aims of the disaster con- CAPTAIN Stephen Russell,
ference are to reinforce the con- director of NEMA.
cepts of disaster mitigation and
preparedness, and to strengthen
the relief, repair, restoration and



islands, and ultimately the syn-
chronisation of the method of
operating in all districts and com-
munities of the northern Bahamas
in the event of a disaster or emer-
gency incident.

The conference was officially E
opened by Don Cornish, adminis-
trator in the Office of the Prime

Minister.
Critical DON CORNISH, administrator
in the Office of the Prime Min-

Mr Cornish said the conference jgter, opened the disaster con-.
is being hosted at a critical time in ferance
our nation’s history as it relates ‘
to disaster management.

“While we have had our share of disasters of late, it has been



_ ours to‘count the many blessings we enjoyed, particularly during the

hurricane season when we were consistently spared the ravages of
a major storm,” he said.

Grand Bahama was hit by. three major hurricanes — Frances,
Jeanne and Wilma — in 2004 and 2005. Those storms and the dam-
age they inflicted, and the recent tornado in March reinforced
the importance of preparedness..““We have moved gradually away
from the notion that our greatest and only threat to our population
and environment is that brought by seasonal hurricanes.

“We are now fully cognizant:of the many. threats we face, par-
ticularly here in Grand Bahama where we have a very large indus-
trial plant, a major container and cruise port and an international
airport,” Mr Cornish said.

Disaster Management in the 21st century now employs new
concepts of weather tracking via Doppler radar, satellite and
barometers. It makes use of well analysed data and expert fore-
casting and prognostication. “We have come a long way, ladies and
gentlemen, from the village where the only news we got was from
some. wise person reading nature's signals instinctively in a tiny
Bahamian village and later on to our radio sets, rare as they were
in the early 20th century. It is in this new environment that we oper-
ate, where training and education and new strategies have been’
joined with new innovation and careful planning,” he said.

. “This environment demands that we remain on the cutting edge

~ of technological advances and keep abreast of forecasting method-

ology in order to protect the population.and properly. While much
of what we prepare for is the seasonal hurricane, we are ever
mindful that there are many other potential disasters that cannot
be seen in a vacuum and must never be understood as singular
threats in an isolated period.”

According to statistics, in the entire Caribbean Basin, which
stretches from the Leeward and Windward Islands in the east to
Hispaniola and Cuba in the west, the Bahamian islands have the
greatest frequency of cyclones. The Caribbean Hurricane Net-
work has reported that the hurricane capital of the Caribbean is
Abaco, with 18 severe hurricanes since 1851, which is an average
one hurricane every eight to nine years. Since 1994, Key West
and Nevis have seen the most severe hurricanes, Mr Cornish said.

GUINNESS Master Brew-
er Fergal Murray is visiting
Nassau to share his extraor-
dinary knowledge of the
world’s most popular stout.

His Tour of the Caribbéan
is part of the 2010 interna-
tional Arthur’s Day celebra-
tions, highlighting 250 years
of Guinness being the world’s
most famous stout.

The 300° strong local
Bahamian staff of Burns
House, including store and
administrative employees and
sales and marketing teams
were excited to hear about
Guinness “brand passion” in a
two-part series of sessions
hosted by Mr Murray.

He also visited an addition-
al 60 employees at Common-
wealth Brewery to talk, moti-
vate and conduct further

training on Guinness, a prod- —

uct they make daily for the
local market.

Fergal Murray has worked
with Guinness since 1983 and
his vast knowledge of the
brewing process and history
of the Irish brand has enabled

‘him to travel the world as its
ambassador.

His contagious passion for
Guinness stout has led him to
create “The Perfect Pour”,
and he demonstrated the five-
step process at a special event



NIB - ‘Good first day for Drug Plan’

THE National Insurance
Board reported that the first
day of business for the
National Prescription Drug
Plan has been a good one.

Claims were being success-
fully adjudicated and, formu-
lary medicines dispensed
throughout the islands at 35
private pharmacy locations
and 61 public pharmacies, the
NIB said.

“It’s going smoothly. Bene-
ficiaries are flocking to par-
ticipating pharmacies in New
Providence and being served
and we’re receiving good
feedback. We’ve also had per-
sons throughout the Family
Islands being able to access
prescriptions with no major
problems or concerns,” Tami
Francis, NPDP manager said.

However, Mrs Francis said
that ACE cardholders and
doctors must be aware of
some guidelines concerning
how prescriptions must be
written in order to be accept-
ed.by the NPDP comput-
erised system.

“The main issue that is
causing a problem for some
cardholders is that some pre-
scriptions do not have a doc-
tor’s name written on them.
For example, instead of a doc-
tor’s name the prescription
may have ‘Dr PMH?’ written
on it, but the system will not
accept this. All prescriptions
must have a doctor’s name
written clearly on them,” she
said.

She added that only doc-
tors from an approved list of
physicians are authorised to
prescribe medicine for the
National Prescription Drug
Plan and only conditions cer-
tified by a physician will be

Tony, Singh, local brand
manager for Guinness and its
parent company, Diageo, said:
“Diageo International recog-
nises that the Bahamas is one
of the stand-out markets for
Guinness in the region, local-
ly producing a superior prod-
uct and consistently provid-
ing a positive community mes-
sage. Fergal Murray has trav-
elled the world teaching peo-
ple about the rich history of
Guinness and we are happy
that the Bahamas has been
chosen to share in the inter-
national celebrations.”

Arthur’s Day, a combina-
tion of music-related events
and international celebration,
was created in 2009 to com-
memorate the brand’s 250th
anniversary.

Legacy

It honours the legacy of
Arthur Guinness, the pioneer
and philanthropist who signed

’ the 9,000-year lease on the St

James’ Gate Brewery in 1759
and introduced the Guinness
brand to the world.

The celebration benefits the
Arthur Guinness Fund, which
supports social entrepreneurs

acknowledged by the system.

“For example a cardhold-
er may be certified for hyper-
tension but not for diabetes.
In this case he or she can only
receive medicine for hyper-
tension but not for diabetes
because a physician has not
certified that condition,” Mrs
Francis said.

or not their doctors are able

PC Repair A+ Programme



launched at high school

THE Ministry of Educa-
tion, in partnership with
Synergy Bahamas, has
launched the ‘PC Repair

_ The internationally recog-
- nised programme is being

dents at the secondary
school level and provides
them with the knowledge
and skills for certification
in personal computer repair.

The training, which is
being provided free of
charge by. Synergy
Bahamas, aims to give the
‘students a héad start
towards obtaining their pro-
fessional certification upon
completion of the pro-
gramme. It also aims to give
them the opportunity to
work towards earning cred-
its for further study at the
College of the Bahamas
(COB) while still in school.

Minister Desmond Ban-
nister praised the students
for doing so well that most
of them were able to sit
their Bahamas General Cer-

tificate of Secondary Edu-
cation exams in the tenth
and eleventh grades. He
encouraged them to contin-
ue to maintain the high
standards that they have set
for themselves and to com-
plete their individual pro-
grammes ofstudy.

THE Bahamas Telecommu-

duced a new long distance calling
card that uses voice over internet
protocol technology.

The calling card, called “Talk
it Up”, allows residents and vis-
itors to make calls at consider-
ably lower rates than any other
existing landline technology,
according to BTC.

The company said “Talk it

Up” offers lower rates to more |

than 450 countries, including the
United States, Jamaica, Haiti,
Canada, and the UK. The intro-
ductory rate is 25\ cents per
minute to most countries for the
next 90 days.

Marlon Johnson, vice presi-
dent of marketing, sales and
business development, said: “We
are cognisant of the fact that we
are in the era of technology,
where something is new today
and old tomorrow. It is our
responsibility to ensure that our
residents and visitors are pro-
vided with the most modern and
reliable service.

“The need to stay connected is

second nature. This is evidenced

HIV/AIDS awareness. and she
used her title to champion

FROM pageone 90 Chinese labourers ‘to tuild road’

cheaper than if it had got it
from other international mon-
ey-lending sources, it is not this
but rather the long-term impact
on the Bahamian economy and
unemployment levels that
should be a priority.

He suggested that since it is
the government itself, and not a
private sector entity such as
Baha Mar that is planning the
project, it could easily choose
not do involve the Chinese
labour, but rather make the

project Bahamian-led.

“The question for me is
whether or not this government
considered the option of giving
Bahamians the work even
though the cost of executing
the contract would’ve been
higher than with the Chinese
concessionary loan, because the
impact of hiring Bahamian
workers would’ve had a greater

impact on the economy of The ,

Bahamas.

“We (the PLP) have con-
cluded that we cannot support
this resolution on that very
basis,” said Mr Christie, adding
that it would not appear there is
any work involved in the con-
struction of the highway that
would be beyond the technical
capacities of Bahamian con-
struction workers.

Prior to the PLP’s objection
to the resolution, Minister of
State Zhivargo Laing, speaking

injuries were, or whether the
incident occurred on West Bay
Street as alleged.

Dr Hanna insisted that if the
investigation uncovers evi-
dence that the allegations are
true, the PHA will take the
“necessary or appropriate”
action — which may include
dismissal.

A source with knowledge of
the Emergency Medical Ser-
vices said this is only the latest
in a series. of allegations
against staff.

“The public don’t know
about it, but there are a lot of

allegations of stuff going -

down.

“Tf these claims are exposed,
maybe someone will take a
closer look at what is going
on,” the source said.

While touring the grounds
of the Princess Margaret Hos-
pital, Mike Edwards, a para-
medic from the United States,

ongoing investigation at the
government-run hospital.

_ Unlike the Bahamas, the US
government does not afford

national health care, and Mr.

Edwards noted that emer-
gency medical services in his
country were compensated by
an individual’s private health
insurance.

He added: “A lot of people

for the government, told of how
the “concessionary” Joan for
the highway would be provided
to the government from the
Export Import Bank of China —
the same state-owned bank that
has agreed to finance the Baha
Mar resort project on Cable
Beach — on better terms than
it could get anywhere on the
“open market.”

The project will see 6.2 miles
of John F Kennedy Drive
“dualised” into a four-lane car-
riageway that the government
says will ease traffic congestion
which is projected to worsen on
the road corridor going for-
ward, and make travel between
the airport and downtown Nas-
sau quicker, safer and more
attractive, among other bene-
fits.

Mr Laing noted that the
loan’s two per cent interest
rate is around five per cent
lower than the government
would have been able to bor-
row the money for elsewhere,
and over the 20-year life of the
loan will save the government
around $30 million in interest
compared with what it would
have paid on-a higher-rate
loan. :

“These terms could not be
found anywhere else in the
world,” said Mr Laing. Only
interest and no principal pay-
ments will be paid during the
first five years of the loan.

Mr Laing added: “It is not
new news about how Chinese
concessionary funding brings
with it Chinese labour.”

‘The Minister advised that
around 20 to 30 Chinese
labourers would. be involved in
the investigative preparatory
phases of the project, seven to
ten in management staffing, 80
for the installation of high volt-
age cables, 20 for light instal-



lation and 60 for water main
set-up.

“In total, 200 or so Chinese
total over the period of the
development — not at any one
time,” said Mr Laing.

The Chinese labour involved
in this project would be entire-
ly separate and in addition to
the 8,150 work permits the Chi-
nese are seeking for Chinese
and other expatriate labourers,
to come to The Bahamas to
help construct the Cable Beach
resort.

It is not entirely clear when
the labourers would begin
arriving to participate in the

‘highway project, although the

government anticipates that
construction may begin in Jan-
uary of next year, and be entire-
ly completed by October 2012.

The 200 Chinese expected to
work on the road and other
connected utilities and land-
scaping-are to be joined by an
estimated 100 Bahamian
labourers.

First word of the Chinese
offer to fund the highway pro-
ject was given in September of
last year when .Wu Bangguo,
Chairman of the Standing

Committee of the National
People’s Congress in China —
one of the country’s top offi-
cials — visited The Bahamas
with a large delegation.

While the main news coming
out of that visit was the frame-
work agreements signed by the
Chinese with the developers of
Baha Mar, the government also
signed a preliminary agreement
on the almost $60 million high-
way loan during this visit.

The PLP issued a statement
last night in which it claimed
the government’s decision to
go with the Chinese funding
and subsequent labour compo-
nent “re-enforces a decidedly |
anti-Bahamian posture” the
opposition party alleges to have
been taken by the government
when it comes to hiring.

The statement highlighted
the contracting of Jamaican
Vinette Graham-Allen as
Director of Public Prosecutions,
the decision to place into retire-
ment numerous senior police
officers, and the alleged hiring
of a foreign judge’s wife as a
prosecutor in the: Attorney
General’s Office as other evi-
dence of this.

They were charged in a New

with conspiracy to defraud the

trafficking counterfeit goods for
commercial advantage or finan-

Last Thursday Dr Deveaux told Island
FM radio host Patty Roker on “The Morn-

the prime minister the previous Monday —
the same morning he saw an article on the
front page of this newspaper outlining how
he had accepted a free ride in the luxury
helicopter of the Prince Karim Aga Khan,
the billionaire leader of an islamic sect,
while having the Aga Khan’s application to
develop the island before the Environment
Ministry that he heads for consideration:

The prime minister, he said, rejected the
offer, and no other official statement was

made on the matter.

Dr Deveaux had admitted flying on the
12-seater helicopter to attend a film screen-

The Environment Minister has also stat-

BUT elections:

Mrs Friend said: “Please’
know that a protest has been
filed with the Bahamas Union
of Teachers Elections Commit-
tee and the Department of
Labour which is specific to the
transparent, just and fair

‘process of elections and not to

the success of any one team or
candidate. We do congratulate
candidates who were success-
ful and I would like to wish
them every success in the
future.”

Irregularities itemized
included: the integrity of bal-
lots, voting booths and the last
minute cancellation of two
polls,

Mrs Friend said: “A card-
board. box was used to secure
ballots for voting and transport.
The late opening of polls result-
ed in voters leaving without
exercising their right to vote.
Open voting occurred without
the use of voting booths and
members were allowed to enter
carrying campaign parapher-
nalia, sit, discuss and vote.”

Election officials were said

to have commenced sorting and
, tabulating since 7 am yesterday
‘and by midday were said to
have been inundated by the
sheer volume of ballots. With
all 15 positions of the executive
team up for votes, there were
40 candidates and nine sepa-
rate ballots.

The BUT has a total of 4,000
members and voter participa-
tion in this election was said to
have been more than 80. per
cent. Reports yesterday indi-
cated the Department. of
Labour was partly responsible
for the delayed opening of
polling stations.in New Provi-
dence on election day, however
labour officials have also denied
culpability.

A labour official said: “This
particular union has an election
committee which sets out — as
in their constitution — the con-
ditions for elections. The
Department of Labour does
not organise their elections, all
the law requires is for the min-
ister — and by extension those

from his department — to |

appear and supervise the poll.
That’s all we do — we supervise
based on their union’s consti-
tution.”

Philip Johnson, election
committee chairman, acknow]-

_ edged the late start at polling

stations, which he attributed to

his team’s inability to distrib-

ute ballot boxes in a timely
manner. .

Despite the slight tardiness,
Mr Johnson said he believed
the election process sent
smoothly with few hiccups or
reasons for concern.

Mr Johnson said: “The only
other thing I can think of is that
retirees were upset that they
were not allowed to vote. In
the past it was allowed but it is
erroneous — the constitution
does not allow for it. Only per-
sons who are in good standing
with the union three months
prior to elections are allowed
to vote.

His first time in the post, Mr
Johnson maintained he dis-
couraged any procedure that
was extraneous to the consti-
tution, regardless of whether it
was a formerly accepted prac-
tice. The ‘unofficial victors, Ms
Wilson and Mr McPhee, were
unavailable for comment up to
press time.

The official results are
expected to be released today.

Jets CB Revis out for Dolphins game

By DENNIS WASZAK Jr
AP Sports Writer

FLORHAM PARK, N.J.
(AP) — Revis Island will be
deserted for at least one
game.

New York Jets cornerback
Darrelle Revis will not play
against the Miami Dolphins
(2-0) on Sunday night because
of his strained left hamstring.

"I want to be out there with
them, but I can't;" Revis said
Wednesday. "I'm just going
to take my time and get back
to 100 per cent."

Revis did not practice, and
coach Rex Ryan said the All-
Pro would not even travel
with the Jets (1-1) to Miami.
Instead, he will stay back at

the team's facility to receive
further treatment on the ham-
string:

"He's itching to get back,"
Ryan said, "but it's too risky
of a proposition to put him
out there.'

Revis said he's getting pro-
gressively better each day, but
he and the team decided he
would not be ready in time
to play Sunday.

Linebacker Calvin Pace

Revis was limited in prac-

completely healthy heading

his leg after Randy Moss

the locker room for treat-
ment. He didn't return and
watched the second half in
the trainer's room.

On Monday, Revis would
not rule himself out for the
Miami game, but acknowl-
edged that it could take him a
week or two to heal. He said
it would be the first game he
has ever missed at any level.

"I'm just relaxed," he said.
"I'm dealing with the ham-
string thing right now. There's
no point in getting emotions
in it. I'll just root my team on
and watch them win." -

Revis pulled the same ham-
string last summer and missed
two preseason games, and has
said that injury was worse. So,

probably would've been out

"I'm sure Cro's probably
going to get a pick this week-

Cromartie, who shut down
Moss after Revis went out,
will primarily be matched up
with Brandon Marshall on
Sunday. The two went up
against each other several
times in recent seasons when
Cromartie was in San, Diego
and Marshall was in Denver.
Cromartie was also part of a
Chargers secondary that gave
up 18 catches by Marshall in
2008.

"I'm definitely looking for-

martie said. "It's my ninth
time facing him, so we know
each other well. I'm just look-

Liverpool, Chelsea and Man City lose

LONDON (AP) — Liverpool's season
took another turn for the worse when it
was knocked out of the English League
Cup in the third round on Wednesday
night with a shocking loss to fourth-tier
Northampton, and Chelsea and Man-
chester City also were eliminated.

Michael Owen scored twice as defend-
ing champion Manchester United rallied
past second-tier Scunthorpe 5-2.

Liverpool lost 4-2 on penalty kicks fol-
lowing a 2-2 tie against Northampton,
which came away with arguably the
biggest win in its history.

Milan Jovanovic put Liverpool, a seven-
time League Cup champion, ahead in the
ninth minute in a downpour at Anfield,
but Billy McKay tied it in the 56th and
Northampton took the lead. on Michael
Jacobs’ goal in the 98th. David Ngog
equalized in the 116th, and Abdul Osman
converted the decisive penalty kick. —

Liverpool, owned by feuding Tom
Hicks and George Gillett Jr, is just 16th in
the 20-team Premier League. Northamp-
ton is 17th in League 2, the equivalent of
a Class A baseball league.

Newcastle upset Chelsea 4-3 following
a last-minute goal by Shola Ameobi, his
second goal of the night, and West
Bromwich Albion came from behind to
beat Manchester City 2-1 on goals by
Gianni Zuiverloon and Simon Cox.

-United, which like Chelsea and City
played largely second-string lineups, fell

behind in the 19th minute but came back
on the goals by Owen, and one each by
Darron Gibson, Chris Smalling and Ji-
sung Park.

Aston Villa beat Blackburn 3-1 and
Wigan defeated Preston 2-1. American
defender Eric Lichaj started for Aston
Villa, and Brad Guzan started in goal in
place of American compatriot Brad

MILLER

By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter
bstubbs@tribunemedia.net

WITH the bulk of the national
team heading out on Sunday for the
Commonwealth Games, Bahamas
Olympic Committee (BOC) presi-
dent Wellington Miller said there
are some concerns about the state
of conditions in New Delhi, India.

According to an article Tuesday
on the Associated Press, one of the
biggest sports events in the world is
in jeopardy as organisers struggle to
cope with unfinished buildings, an
athletes' village described as "unfit
for human habitation," a bridge col-
lapse, concerns over security, alle-
gations of corruption, and an out-
break of dengue fever.

The event, slated for October 3-14,
brings together more than 7,000 ath-
letes from the 71 countries and ter-

ritories every four years.
When asked to comment yester-
day, Miller said like any leader of

any organisation or a team going:

away and they hear of reports, they
have their concerns.

“But then we also hear reports
that everything will be okay by the
time the teams reach there,” Miller
said.

“Whenever you have big games
like this, you will hear of unfinished
buildings and.things not quite ready.
With New Delhi putting on these
games, I strongly believe that every-
thing will be all right and that they
will have everything fit for the ath-
letes and the officials when they get
there.”

The Bahamas recently named a
29-member team made up of 18
track and field athletes, two boxers,
three cyclists and six tennis players.

Chef de mission Roy Colebrooke,

who has made two previous trips to
India to view the facilities, is expect-
ed to leave today to ensure that
everything is in order for the
Bahamian team’s arrival.

The bulk of the team is scheduled
to depart the Lynden Pindling Inter-
national Airport 8am Sunday.

They are then expected to meet
up with those athletes coming out
of the United States in New York
en route to New Delhi. The team is
scheduled to depart New Delhi on
October 16.

Miller said they. are quite aware of
all of the reports coming out of India
and are taking all of the necessary

precautions to ensure that Team

Bahamas is safe during the games.

Minister of Youth, Sports and Cul-
ture Charles Maynard, his wife, and
the acting director of sports, Kevin
Colebrooke, are also expected to
make the trek to India.

be safe during Commonwealth Games

Scotland and Canada delay departures to the Games

By CHRIS LEHOURITES
AP Sports Writer



LONDON (AP) — With
more and more athletes
announcing their withdrawal
from the Commonwealth
Games, Scotland and Canada
became the first teams to
delay their departures to New

Delhi because of the appalling .

conditions at the athletes’ vil-
lage.

The October 3-14 games
have been mired in problems
for weeks, and on Wednesday
part of a drop ceiling inside
the weightlifting venue col-
lapsed, spreading further
doubt on whether athletes will
be safe upon arrival in India’s
capital city.

The latest woes came a day
after a footbridge near the
main stadium collapsed, seri-
ously injuring five construc-
tion workers, and the athletes'
village — where excrement
was found in some rooms —
was labelled "unsafe and unfit
for human habitation." The
village is due to open today.

"By delaying the arrival of
our athletes by a few days, we
hope to give the Delhi 2010
Organising Committee the
necessary time to address the
concerns that have ,been
raised by both the Common-
wealth Games Federation and
the countries which arrived
early," Commonwealth
Games Scotland chairman
Michael Cavanagh said
Wednesday.

The first group of Scottish

athletes and officials was due
to depart Thursday. But
Cavanagh said that dogs have
been seen roaming around the
village, while the apartments
are "filthy" and surrounded
by rubble and building debris.

"We will not compromise

on areas of athlete health,

safety . and security,"
Cavanagh said, adding that
Scottish officials in New Del-
hi would continue to monitor
the situation. "We. need
urgent action from the Com-
monwealth Games Federation
and the Delhi Organising
Committee to address these
crucial issues."

Canada's women's field

leave for New Delhi on
Thursday but will remain at

home for at least two more
days.

"The bottom line is that the
accommodations in the ath-
letes village simply aren't
ready," Commonwealth
Games Canada director of
sport Scott Stevenson said in a
statement. "We're working

extremely hard with local’

authorities to get the finish-
ing work and the clean-up
done, but it's going to take
more time."

Stevenson said about a
dozen members of the dele-
gation's staff, some of whom
were due to leave Wednes-
day, have also had their trav-
el plans pushed back for at
least 48 hours.

Commonwealth Games
England chairman Andrew
Foster said his organisation

was monitoring the situation.
The first English athletes are
due to arrive in India on Fri-
day.

"I think the next 24 to 48
hours is the critical time which
will tell us whether the village,
which is where the main prob-
lem is now, has got enough
accommodation for every-
body to. come into it," Foster
told the BBC. "It's a situation
that hangs on a knife-edge."

Commonwealth Games

_ England called the situation

in New Delhi "serious."

"The CGE continues to
seek assurances from the CGF
(Commonwealth Games Fed-
eration) and the organising
committee of the Common-
wealth Games in Delhi that
the village and venues are fit
for purpose, are safe and that
urgent action will be taken by
the OC and the CGF to
address the significant oper-
ational issues which exist,"
Commonwealth Games Eng-
land said in a statement.

The Wales team has given
the local organising commit-
tee a deadline of Wednesday
evening to confirm that all
venues and the athletes' vil-
lage are ready.

"The health and safety of
our team has always been our
top priority, which is why
we've been so desperate to
resolve the issues in the games
village," Team. Wales said in a
statement. "With yesterday's

to take a step back and exam-
ine how safe it is to bring ath-
letes into this environment."
On Tuesday, Common-
wealth Games Federation
President Mike Fennell urged
the government to get the ath-
letes' village cleaned up and
ready for Thursday's opening.
Fennell was. due to arrive in

’ New Delhi on Thursday and

has requested a meeting with
Prime Minister Manmohan
Singh.

Foster said it was possible
that England could pull out
of the Commonwealth Games
if conditions do not improve.

"The safety of the athletes
has to be our primary con-
cern," Foster said. "But equal-
ly, we cannot just respond to
that alone, we have to evalu-
ate the whole thing together
and that is what we are
doing."

Many top athletes withdrew.
from the Commonwealth
Games well-before the latest
round problems became pub-
lic, including Jamaican sprint-
er Usain Bolt and world hep-
tathlon champion Jessica
Ennis. But more athletes
pulled out Tuesday, many cit-
ing safety concerns.

World champion triple
jumper Phillips Idowu of Eng-
land said he was thinking of
his children when he decided
to withdraw, adding "my safe-
ty is more important to them
than a medal." Dani Samuels,
a world champion discus
thrower from Australia, with-
drew after two Taiwanese
tourists were wounded in a
seemingly random shooting
by two men on a motorcycle
outside one of India's biggest
mosques. ,

"The fact that someone of
Dani's stature (has with-

drawn) I'm sure is making a
whole lot of others question
their attendance," Jane Flem-
ming, who won the heptathlon
and long jump gold medals at
the 1990 Commonwealth
Games and is now a com-
mentator on Australian TV,
told ABC radio. "It would not
surprise me if we now see a
whole flux of withdrawals,
particularly those athletes who
are of a very high profile or
very successful or who have a
means of making an income
from their sport, because now
the risks that are involved in
attending those games have
gone through the roof."

World 400-meter champi-
on Christine Ohuruogu and
England teammate Lisa
Dobriskey, the defending
1,500 champion at the games,
both said Tuesday that they
were going to skip the event,
citing injuries. They had pre-
viously said they would be
going.

New Zealand Prime Minis-
ter John Key said the future
of the Commonwealth Games
would be jeopardized if the
New. Delhi event was can-
celled, but he wasn't prepared
to risk athletes if facilities and
conditions weren't suitable.

"If they are to go ahead,
from New Zealand's perspec-
tive, conditions have to be
safe and sound for our peo-
ple," Key said Wednesday in
Wellington.

The Australian government
said the ultimate decision to
go or not was for the athletes
to make.

"The government cannot
tell people not to compete. It
can't tell parents not to
attend," Australian Sports
Minister Mark Arbib said i in
Sydney.

He said the situation continues to spiral out of
control “because we have been trying to bury it”;
because some administrators “are trying to save

“A lot of the people who make decisions in
this country are clueless as to what is going on in
this country. A lot of the killings are, retaliation
killings. A lot of times, even though the police talk
about people being out on bail, they are really law
abiding citizens, but they feel they are living ina
system that does not provide them with the justice
they deserve, so they take matters into their own
hands,” he said.

CRASH HELD AT AIRPORT

TESTING the facility’s pre-

‘paredness strategy, the Nas-

sau Airport Development
Company (NAD) on Tuesday
conducted a full-scale simu-
lated aircraft crash at the Lyn-

den Pindling International

Airport.

The event, dubbed “Opera-
tion Sunset”, was scheduled
during the evening to test
response times after dark.

The scenario of the crash
simulation was as follows:

At approximately 5.50pm,
information was received from
the pilot of a Tallboy Air flight
2841; an international flight
enroute from Two Foot, Plea-
sure Island to Nassau, stating
that he was experiencing power
fluctuations in his right and left
engines.

The pilot said there were 38
passengers, four crew and 1,000
gallons of fuel on board.

He reported that the aircraft
was a D-Hallivand 8 ( Dash 8),

that he is declaring an emer-
gency.

At 6pm, while on final
approach for runway 09, both
engines shut down and the air-
craft crashed short of the run-
way threshold and burst into
flames. Thick black smoke
emanated from the door of the
cabin and there are numerous
fatalities among passengers and
crew.

The manifest indicated that
there were 15 Jamaicans, eight
Cubans, 12 Bahamians and
three Haitians on board.

Summit calls for reduction in distracted driving

By KEN THOMAS
Associated Press Writer

WASHINGTON (AP) — Mak-
ing sure drivers keep their eyes on
the road will require a network of
tough laws, enforcement by police
and personal responsibility, the gov-
ernment said Tuesday.

Obama administration officials
said during a second summit on dis-
tracted driving that it has made
progress in pushing states ‘to target
drivers who send text messages and
use mobile devices from the road,
but too many people are being killed
because of inattentive motorists.

"Every time someone takes their
focus off the road — even if it's just
for a moment — they put their lives
and the lives of others in danger,"
said Transportation Secretary Ray
LaHood:

Thirty states and the District of.

Columbia prohibit drivers from tex-
ting behind the wheel; eight states




CRISPY CHICKEN
SANDWICH COMBO

have passed laws barring drivers
from ‘using handheld cell phones.

Nearly 5,500 people were killed last «

year in distracted-driving crashes.

The summit brought together gov-
ernment leaders, safety advocates,
family members of victims and busi-
ness groups to discuss ways of reduc-
ing distracted driving. "Our lives
have been changed forever. In place
of joy and laughter, there is sorrow
and tears," said Russell Hurd, of
Abingdon, Md.

Hurd's daughter, Heather, was
killed in January 2008 when a tractor
trailer plowed into nine vehicles at a
traffic light in Orlando, Florida.
Heather Hurd and her fiance were
driving to meet their wedding plan-
ner at Walt Disney World.

LaHood suggested the technology
industry could place warning labels
— "the way we put warning labels
on cigarettes" — on the boxes of
mobile phones urging consumers not
to use the devices while driving.

The transportation secretary not-
ed that automakers were adding in-
vehicle technology that allows dri-
vers to update their Facebook page,
surf the Internet "or do any num-
ber of other things instead of dri-
ving safely."

"Features that pull drivers' hands,
eyes and attention away from the
road are distractions," said LaHood.
He told reporters the technology
could create a "cognitive distrac-
tion" and he would meet with auto
companies to develop new safety
guidelines for technology in vehi-

cles. :

Ford Motor.Co. has marketed its
in-car entertainment and communi-
cation service, known as Sync, and
General Motors Co. recently
announced plans to give its OnStar
safety system better voice recogni-
tion so drivers could verbally con-
nect with the Internet.

Automakers have said voice-acti-
vated systems are safer for drivers

than trying to manipulate applica- -

tions on their mobile devices.

Wade Newton, a spokesman for
the Alliance of Automobile Manu-
facturers, said making driving safer
will mean balancing "the fact that
we know drivers will do certain
things while driving and how tech-
nology can make it safer."

As part of the summit, the Trans-
portation Department proposed bar-
ring truck drivers from sending text
messages while hauling hazardous
materials. The proposal would close
a loophole’ for hazardous material
haulers not covered by separate rules
being finalized that prohibit com-
mercial bus and truck drivers from
sending text messages on the job.

The department also wrapped up
rules restrict train operators from
using cell phones and mobile devices
on duty. LaHood has pushed states
to adopt tougher laws against send-
ing text messages from behind the
wheel and the federal government

Safety advocates are trying to
replicate the success of campaigns
in the 1980s that helped reduce

increased the use of seat belts.

The summit highlighted efforts by

LaHood said nearly 1,600 US

Ahmadinejad blames capitalism for poverty

By EDITH M LEDERER
Associated Press Writer

UNITED NATIONS (AP)
— Iran's president on Tues-
day predicted the defeat of
capitalism and blamed global
big business for the suffering
of millions, but Germany's
chancellor said market
economies were key to lifting
the world's least developed
countries out of poverty.

The clash of visions at the
UN anti-poverty summit drew
a line under the stark differ-
ences on easing the misery of
the one billion people living
on less than $1.25 a day.

More than 140 presidents,
prime ministers and kings are
attending the three-day sum-
mit which started Monday to
assess and spur on achieve-
ment of UN targets set by
world leaders in 2000. The
plan called for an intensive
global campaign to ease
poverty, disease and inequal-
ities between rich and poor
by 2015.

Iranian President Mah-
moud Ahmadinejad, howev-
er, never mentioned the Mil-
lennium Development Goals
in his speech to the 192-mem-
ber General Assembly.

Instead, he took aim at’cap-
italism and called for the
overhaul of "undemocratic
and unjust" global decision-
making bodies, which are
dominated by the United
States and other Western
powers. While Ahmadinejad
didn't single out any country,
he said world leaders, thinkers
and global reformers should
"spare no effort" to make
practical plans for a gew
world order — reform of
international economic and
political institutions.

the new millennium, we need
to revert to the divine mind-

AP Sports Writer

NEW DELHI (AP) —
One of the world's biggest
sports events is in jeopardy as
organisers struggle to cope
with unfinished buildings, an
athletes' village described as
"unfit for human habitation,"
a bridge collapse, concerns
over security and corruption,
and an outbreak of dengue
fever.

The October 3-14 Com-
monwealth Games, which
bring together .more than
7,000 athletes from the 71
countries and territories every
four years, was supposed to
showcase the emerging power
of India — just as the 2008
Beijing Olympics did for Chi-
na.
Instead, the New Delhi
Games are highlighting the

problems in the developing |

nation of more than 1 billion
people that is still plagued by
vast areas of poverty.

The frenzied, last-minute
preparations are in such dis-

‘array with less than two

weeks before the opener that
some Officials are speculating
that a few teams could with-
draw or the event could be
called off. :

The latest blow came Tues-
day, with the collapse of.a
footbridge being built to con-
nect the main stadium to a
parking lot. Police said 23
construction workers were
injured, five seriously.

Hours earlier, the Com-
monwealth Games Federa-
tion urged the Indian govern-
ment to finish work on the
athletes’ village, which is due
to open Thursday. In addition
to shoddy conditions inside
and outside the buildings,
there also are problems with
plumbing, wiring, furnishings,
Internet access and cell phorie
coverage.

"We have to continue to
push our concerns at the high-
est level and you can't get
higher than the Cabinet office
of the country and the prime
minister," Commonwealth
Games Federation chief exec-
utive Mike Hooper told The
Associated Press. "They have
to come up with a clear plan
to meet the needs of athletes
and show they can provide
consistent standards."

The games have historical-
ly been dominated by Eng-
land, Australia and Canada,
and all three have voiced con-
cerns about the conditions in

said in a brief speech inter-

gion with the current state of
the world. "Now that the dis-

"It's hard to cancel.an event
of this magnitude, but we are

close to the wire, and teams |

may start to take things into
their own hands," England
chef de mission Craig Hunter
told Britain's Press Associa-
tion. "Athletes will start get-
ting on planes soon and deci-

sions will have to be made. .

We need new levels of reas-
surance."

Australian discus world °

champion Dani Samuels and
England's triple jump world
champion Phillips Odowu
both withdrew from the
games Tuesday, citing con-
cerns over health and security.

. Australia's federal sports
minister Mark Arbib, who is
due to travel to New Delhi
next week, told Sky News on
Wednesday that "there could
be a number more who made
that decision," to follow
Samuels' lead and withdraw
from the games.

Scotland said its team's liv-
ing area was "unsafe and unfit
for human habitation." Aus-
tralia's chef de mission,
retired marathon runner
Steve Moneghetti, said Indian
organizers "have got two days
to do what's probably going
to take about two weeks."

Commonwealth Games
Canada director of sport Scott
Stevenson said housing facili-
ties were not “anything like
what was promised."

Although no one has said
they will pull out, New
Zealand team manager Dave
Currie had some of the

strongest words for organis- |

ers.

"If the village is not ready
and athletes can't come, obvi-
ously the implications of that
are that (the event) is not
going to happen," Currie told
New Zealand radio network
newstalkZB.

The chaos has severely
dented India's hopes of using
the games as a springboard
for.a bid to host the Olympics
in 2020 or 2024.

The International Olympic
Committee carries out more
rigorous and frequent inspec-
tions of host cities to make
sure that construction dead-

' lines are met. The process has

been tightened further since
the delays that dogged prepa-
rations for the 2004 Athens
Olympics.

The games in India are only
the third to be staged outside
Britain, Canada, Australia
and New Zealand. Kingston,

Soon afterward, German
Chancellor Angela Merkel,
the world's fourth-largest eco-
nomic power, took an oppo-

site tack, likely speaking for ’

the rest of the capitalist world.

Stressing that "the prima-
ry responsibility for develop-
ment lies with the govern-
ments of the developing coun-
tries," she said the key to eco-
nomic prosperity was good
governance and a flourishing

Jamaica held the 1966 edition,
then known as the British
Empire and Commonwealth
Games, and Kuala Lumpur,
Malaysia, was the only Asian
city to host the-event in 1998.

New Delhi, India's capital

and home to more than 12

million people, was chosen to
host the -19th edition of the
Commonwealth Games in
November 2003, beating out
Hamilton, Ontario. Between
then and 2008, the country
did little to prepare.

Organising committee sec-
retary general Lalit Bhanot
said the situation at the vil-
lage was normal.

capitalist economy.

"The countries themselves
must promote the develop-
ment of a market econo-
my...for without self-sustain-
ing economic growth devel-
oping countries will find the
road out of poverty and
hunger too steep to travel,"
Merkel said.

The German leader said
international assistance can't
substitute for domestic
resources, warned that
"development aid cannot con-
tinue indefinitely" and
declared that "support for
good governance is as impor-
tant as aid itself."

Oxfam, one of the world's
most respect aid organisa-
tions, slammed Merkel's
address. Spokeswoman
Emma Seery said more had
been expected from the Ger-
mans, who "failed to explain
how they will meet their
promises of aid to poor coun-
tries, and sidestepped their
responsibility to make aid
work by laying this at the
door of the poorest coun-
tries." :

Seery also chided the Ger-
man leader for not joining
with France and Spain in call-
ing for a small tax on financial
transactions that would go to
meet development needs of
poor countries. "Whether
Germany can still claim to be
a development leader is now
questionable," she said in an
unusually blunt assessment of
a government leader's
address.

UN Secretary-General Ban
Ki-moon has said the world
is "on track" to cut extreme
poverty by half, the No. 1
goal, though some critics say
it's mainly because of the big
strides in China and India.
Many recent reports show
that the world's poorest coun-
tries, especially ih sub-Saha-
ran Africa, have made little
progress in eradicating pover-

ty.

~ lems and they will be resolved

before the athletes come in,"
Bhanot said. "These are not
going to affect the games in
any way as all venues are
ready to. host the games."

Even Hooper called the .

problems "fixable."

He said he would not spec-
ulate on whether the games
would take place, adding:
"The games start on the third
of October and everything
that has to be done must be
done.’

Hooper said newspaper
reports of human excrement
.around the village were true.

and most influential broad-

And in Africa, Asia and
Latin America there also has
been a lack of progress in
meeting other key goals:
reducing mother and child
deaths, increasing the num-
ber of people with access to
basic sanitation, and promot-
ing women's equality. Ban is
expected to launch a new ini-
tiative Wednesday to spur
action on improving the lot
of women and children.

In his speech, Ahmadine-
jad did not mention Iran's
nuclear programme or the
four rounds of UN Security
Council sanctions over
Tehran's refusal to prove it is
not trying to build a nuclear
weapon. Iran claims it is only
working on nuclear power to
generate electricity.

The subject may be raised
again Thursday when the
General Assembly's annual
ministerial meeting begins.

Russian Foreign Minister
Sergey Lavrov raised the
sanctions issue in his speech,
saying UN sanctions were not
intended to harm ordinary

civilians. He voiced "serious |

concern" at additional sanc-

tions imposed by individual ©

countries.

The criticism appeared
aimed at the United States,
the European Union, Aus-
tralia, Canada, Japan and
South Korea, all of whom
have imposed their own much
tougher sanctions on Tehran.

"We are convinced that
such practice contradicts the
efforts to achieve the MDGs
and must be brought to an
end," Lavrov said, using the
initials of the Millennium
Development Goals.

To counter these threats,
Lavrov said Russia was ready
to help with information and
communication technology
"to bridge the gap between
the developed and develop-
ing countries and — asa
result — to promote global
development."

caster, has detailed the trou-
bles on its website and called
the state of the village "shock-
ing."

"This is a very serious mat-
ter and it needs the attention
of the government of India to
deploy whatever resources
are necessary to fix and
address it," Hooper said. "A
massive deep clean is required
and it needs to be done."

‘Aside from the bridge col-

_ lapse and the unfinished con-

struction, the buildup to the
games has been plagued by
poor ticket sales and mon-
soons. Organisers said last

President Ellen Johnson

’ Sirleaf of Liberia, one of the

world's poorest nations that
has made progress because of
the goals, said Africa "still has
far to go" but if efforts are
intensified "we will, ultimate-
ly, achieve them."

"My message is this: As we
renew our resolve in 2010, we
must recognize the need for
inclusive economic growth.
We need rapid, stable, and
sustained growth that creates
jobs, especially for youth and
in sectors that benefit the
poor, and expands opportu-
nities for women," she said.

Pakistan's Foreign Minis-
ter Shah Mahmood Qureshi
said until a few years ago his
country was on track to
achieve a number of the
MDGs, but the fight against
terrorism and the recent
unprecedented flooding "have
changed almost everything."

The MDGs remain "the
centerpiece" of Pakistan's
development programme, he
said, but the rehabilitation of
flood-ravaged areas will cost
billions and will impact eco-
nomic recovery and achieve-
ment of the UN goals.

At events on the sidelines
of, the summit, US Secretary
of State Hillary Rodham Clin-
ton launched a programme to
address chronic malnutrition
blamed for 3.5 million mater-
nal and child deaths a year.
The programme, co-spon- .
sored by the Irish govern-
ment, focuses on the first
1,000 days of a child's life,
during which nutrition is crit-
ica]. to mental and physical
development.

Later, Clinton helped
launch a new programme to
place cleaner cooking stoves
in 100 million homes by 2020.

She said unsafe stoves expose

as many as three billion peo-
ple to toxic chemicals and
smoke, and upgrading them
can save and improve "mil-
lions of lives."

Commonwealth Games at risk with under two weeks left

lion available.

Two weeks ago, the Indian
capital was hit by an outbreak
of dengue fever, and heavy
rains have contributed both
to the problem of the mos-
quito-borne virus and floods.
Although the government
played down the threat of
dengue fever, doctors in New
Delhi's private clinics said
they were inundated with
dengue patients and accused
the government of vastly
understating the situation.

The stagnant water of the
Yamuna River next to the
athletes' village certainly has-
n't quelled fears of infection
for visiting teams.

pushes .

Sudan on
referendum

By MATTHEW LEE
Associated Press Writer

NEW YORK (AP) — Sec-
retary of State Hillary Rod-
ham Clinton is urging
Sudanese authorities to make
up for, lost time in preparing
for an independence referen-
dum early next year for the
Southern Sudan.

On the sidelines of the UN
General Assembly in New
York, Clinton met Tuesday
with Sudan's Vice President
Ali Osman Taha to impress
upon him the need for a well-
organised and peaceful vote
in January. With just over 100
days until the referendum,
preparations are-far behind ,
schedule.

There are also fears that a
vote splitting the south and



north will re-ignite a bloody
civil war that ended in 2005.
Clinton's talks with Taha
come ahead of a high-level
UN session on Sudan that

President Barack Obama will .

attend on Friday.

Taha and the President of
southern Sudan Salva Kiir will
also participate in the meet-
ing.

Sudan activists have
warned that urgent interna-
tional diplomatic intervention
is the only way to prevent
renewed civil war.

Underscoring the concern,
Clinton and the foreign min-
isters of Britain and Norway
released a letter Tuesday that
they sent to Taha and Kir last
week appealing to them "to
take swift action to ensure" a
peaceful vote that recognises

the will of the people.
"There remains an enor-
mous amount to be done and
work must be accelerated to
make up for lost time," they
said in the letter.
Southern Sudan, which is

predominantly animist and .

Christian, is scheduled to vote
on independence January 9.
But the group charged with
organising the vote has not
yet set a date for voter regis-
tration.

The Obama administration

- has said it is "inevitable" the

south will declare indepen-
dence.

Given the south's substan-
tial known oil resources, many
worry that the predominantly
Muslim north will find it dif-
ficult to accept an indepen-
dent south.

uled to attend a high-level
UN meeting in Sudan on Fri-
day.

"There are a lot.of forecasts
of war and all these indica-
tions that tells us the situa-
tion between north and south
is as tense as ever," said Sister
Cecilia Sierra Salcido, a Mex-
ican nun.

Salcido and other members
of the Catholic Archdiocese
of Juba have organised "101
Days of Prayer for Peace."
The effort began Tuesday to
coincide with the Interna-
tional Day of Peace. It ends â„¢
January 1, eight days before
the referendum.

"The least we can do is
pray," said Salcido.

Hundreds gathered on a
rainy morning in the south-
ern capital of Juba to mark

~ the launch of the prayer cam-

paign. ,

Interfaith Christian work
has long been a feature of
efforts toward peace in Sudan
during the country's long civ-
il war and since the signing of
the Comprehensive Peace
Agreement in 2005 that end-
ed more than two decades of
fighting.

"The church was able to
present the authentic voice of
the ordinary people of South-
ern Sudan and the transition-
al areas to the parties and the
world," said John Ashworth,
an advocate and leader of
ecumenical peace efforts in °
the country. "The church
played a major role in putting
the right of self-determina-
tion at the center of the peace
agreement."

Senior southern govern-
ment officials have said that
religious freedoms will be
respected in an independent
Southern Sudan, but some in
the religious minority in the
south are not so sure.

album

PORT-AU-PRINCE,
Haiti (AP) — Wyclef Jean
has officially ended his bid
for Haiti's presidency.

A statement sent Tuesday
by his publicist says the
singer is leaving Haitian pol-
itics to promote a new
album.

Jean's candidacy ended
last month when the
Caribbean country's eight-
member provisional elec-
toral council left him and
more than a dozen other
hopefuls off the ballot.
Ninéteen candidates were
approved.

No official reasons were
given for the exclusions.
Jean is presumed not to
have met constitutional
requirements including liv-
ing in Haiti. He lives in New,
Jersey.

The announcement ends
speculation the singer would
contest the disqualification,
though the council does not
allow appeals.

The election is slated for
November 28.

Yum Brands Foundation,
the charitable arm of fast-food
company Yum Brands Inc.,
will provide $100,000 in grants
during the next four years to
help build multicultural gar-
dens at schools around the
world.

"When we heard that you

are building a garden that was |

going to foster multicultural



respect: teach nutrition and
feed the hungry, we thought
that is something that can't
just be contained here in
Louisville, it's got to spread |
around the world," said Amy
Sherwood, a vice president of
Yum Brands, the parent of
Taco Bell, Pizza Hut and
KFC. 5

The school came up with
the idea of developing a gar-
den in which the youngsters
took roles in growing food
associated with naticnalities
represented at the school. The
Muhammad Ali Center and
Yum Brands Foundation saw’
it as a springboard for a con-
cept that could catch on glob-
ally to promote diversity and
help combat hunger.

At the school, garden beds
at the edge of the playground
represented various countries.
Squash and beans were grown
in the US/Native Anierican
garden.

Tomatoes, peppers and
onions were ina Salsa garden
representing Mexico.

Sweet potatoes and beans
were grown in a Cuban gar-

“den bed, edamame in the

Asian bed arid potatoes and °
cucumbers represented Rus-
sia.

The lessons from tending
the inner city garden were
incorporated into social stud-
ies, art and music, said Ruth
Welch, ‘a teacher at the
school. It also gave the kids
a chance to get their hands
dirty while learning about
nature.

"It is such a joy to witness
the wonder in, a kindergar-
tender's face as she pokes her
finger into the freshly tilled
soil to plant a bean," she said.

Hurricane Igor storms
Canada with heavy rains

ST JOHN'S, Newfound-
land (AP) — Hurricane Igor
pelted eastern Canada with
heavy rain Tuesday, flooding
communities, washing out
roads and stranding some res-
idents in their homes.

In the Pacific, a mild tropi-
cal storm formed and was
expected to cross the Mexi-
can resort area of Baja Cali-
fornia later in the day.

The Canadian Hurricane
Centre said Igor had trans-
formed into a "post-tropical"
storm, which has a different
structure from a hurricane but
still packs the same punch.
The storm was battering New-
foundland, on Canada's east-
ern coast.

The Hurricane Centre said
the change in classification
does not reflect a downgrade
in the storm's intensity
because winds have strength-
ened as the storm draws ener-
gy from another weather sys-
tem to the west.

"This is not your normal
heavy rainfall flooding. It's
having a major impact," said
Chris Fogarty, of the Canadi-
an Hurricane Centre. He said
more than 200 millimeters (8
inches) of rain have already
fallen in some regions in the
past few hours.

Dennis Shea of the
province's Emergency and
Fire Services office-said more
than 30 communities had
declared a state of emergency
and that they were investigat-
ing reports that a man was
swept out to sea in eastern
Newfoundland. Shea said 19
communities were isolated
because of washed out roads.

Marystown Mayor Sam
Synard said the storm was
overwhelming his communi-
ty's capacity to cope.

"We've never seen such a
violent storm before," he said.
"We've lost sections of our
main roads, completely
washed out to sea."

Keith Rodway, a member
of the Clarenville town coun-
cil, said parts of his town had
to be evacuated.

The Pacific tropical storm,

tained winds near 40 mph (65

Red Cross: Urban dwellers suffer disaster risks

BEIJING (AP) — With the

violence and health hazards, a

"There are now one billion
urban dwellers living in slums.
If the conditions don't
improve, more people will be

. affected in the case of major

disasters like the Haiti earth-
quake," Alistair Henley,
director of IFRC's Asia Pacif-
ic region, said at a news con-
ference Tuesday.

This year's report shifted

its focus to hazards in cities
in part because the develop-
ment of disaster aid to urban
dwellers has not kept up with
the rapid, pace of urbaniza-
tion.

The number of ‘urban
dwellers reached 3.5 billion
this year, compared with 3.4
billion rural residents, the
report said.

Of all the disasters, seismic
activity killed the most people.

— an average of 50,184 peo-

ple per year from 2000 to

2008, the report said. In 2009,
natural disasters killed 10,551
people, a figure expected to
be substantially higher this
year with Haiti's earthquake

300; 000 people.
