Union rejects
‘slap in the face’
proposal from
sovernment

& By NATARIO MCKENZIE.

SOME 1000 New Providence
public school teachers took to
Parliament Square yesterday in
a spirited protest rejecting gov-
ernment’s counter-proposal to
their salary demands.

On January 12 the executive
committee of the Bahamas
Union of Teachers presented a
proposal to government’s con-
sultants and.on February 21 the

consultants presented a counter- .

proposal to the union. Teach-
ers yesterday rejected the
counter-proposal calling it an
insult and an outright “slap in
the face”.

Bahamas Union of Teachers
President Ida Poitier-Turnquest
said the purpose of yesterday’s
demonstration was to send the
message to government that
teachers wanted their just com-
pensation.

“We are just tired of people
treating us like slaves in our
country, we have more qualifi-
cations than police officers and
more qualifications than our
politicians and their salaries are
high, they stay in air-condi-
tioned offices, but we have to
work in deplorable conditions,”
Mrs Turnquest said yesterday.
“We as: educators in the

Bahamas will no longer put up
with the ill treatment that the
government puts on us. We are
hard-working people we have
to do roles that are not teaching

roles and we think it’s time that
we are not only compensated
for what we do, but also looked
at as professionals,” Mrs Turn-
quest added.

The BUT’s protest began
sometime after 9 o’clock yes-
terday morning. Traffic
attempting to head east on Bay
Street had to be cut off on Par-
liament Street as the large
crowd moved from Parliament
Square and filled the street,
remaining there for nearly half
an hour. BUT president Ida
Poitier-Turnquest was among
those sitting in a large circle in
the centre of the street urging
the crowd into chants of: “We
shall overcome,” “everybody
ought to know who teachers
are” and “give me money in my
pocket, keep me working.”

Some protesters wore BUT
tee-shirts while others wore tee-
shirts with the inscription:
“Quality teachers, quality edu-
cation.” There were signs that
read, “dollars for some, cents
for teachers

$125 for 8.30 to 5.00 Hell
No!, “Educated dedicated but
not fully compensated.”

‘The BUT president said she
did not believe that teachers

were being irresponsible by -

blocking Bay Street.

“The public is in total sup-
port of the teachers they realize
that the teachers have been
shortchanged and they are with
us 100 per cent”, she stated.

At about 10 am a truck with

watch as ministers entered the

seeking an audience with Edu-
cation Minister Alfred Sears

Bahamas ‘will
not favour
Cubans over
Haitians’

@ By KARIN HERIG
Tribune Staff Reporter

THE BAHAMAS will not

’ bow down to policies which

would favour Cuban nationals
over Haitians, Prime Minister
Perry Christie said yesterday in
the House of Assembly

Addressing the situation of
the two Cuban dentists who
have been held at the
Carmichael Detention Centre
for the past ten months, Mr
Christie in an impassioned
speech said he has come to the
conclusion that the Bahamas
has allowed itself to be manoeu-
vred into a position where
Cuban migrants receive prefer-
ential treatment over Haitians.

The prime minister said that
if Cubans have the opportunity
to be interviewed in order to
determine if they meet the cri-
teria of political refugees before
being deported, then Haitian
migrants should be given the
same treatment.

Speaking last night in parlia-
ment, the prime minister said

FNM leader accuses PLP of being
‘laissez faire’ on environment





CCLSO





FNM leader Hubert Ingra-
ham has attacked the govern-

between its “espoused environ-
mental consciousness” and its
“laissez faire attitude” to envi-
ronmental matters.

He said the opposition
remains concerned that the lev-
el of commitment by the gov-
ernment to environmental pro-
tection, enhancement and con-
servation is weak.

and inaction have permitted,
indeed, aided and abetted envi-
ronmental degradation around
the country,” he said.

Mr Ingraham said that, in the
Speech from the Throne, just
two sentences were dedicated
to the environment.and the
need to safeguard ground-water
reserves appeared nowhere on
the government’s agenda.

parliament hope that when the
government sits down to really
consider its environmental and
recreational programmes for
the country they will seek to
continue the development of
open green spaces, recreational
facilities and windows to the sea
initiated under the FNM gov-
ernment,” he said. __

The FNM leader said the
government had also ignored
the impact of natural disasters,
which were closely connected
to environment matters.

“We in the Bahamas are
aware, because of our own
experience, especially over the
past decade, of the critical need
to address inadequacies in
national disaster preparedness,
response and relief pro-
grammes.

“Tf that were not sufficient,
we need only take note of the
reports emanating from our big
and, wealthy neighbour to the
north concerning that govern-
ment’s inadequate preparedness

aftermath of Hurricane Katri-
na,” he said.
The former prime minister

‘said that more important, per-

haps, are lessons which ought
to have been taken from the
consequences of years of “envi-

-ronmentally unfriendly devel-

opment along vulnerable coast-
lines — developments which, for
example, destroy or significant-

‘after “blowing the whistle” on

an alleged immigration racket.

He said he has been told he
will get no more visas for Hait-
ian crewmen on his.three freight
boats.

As a result, he claims he is
now out of business and barely
able to scratch a living for his
family.

“I am being victimised for
telling the truth,” he told The
Tribune yesterday.

Mr Bain, who owns three ves-
sels which used to run cargo
between Nassau and Haiti,
caused a storm a few weeks ago
when he alleged that visas were
being supplied illegally to Hait-
ian “mules” for $1,000 a time.

He alleged that human traf-
fickers were collecting up to 40

visas at a time from Norfolk .

House while he — a legitimate
Bahamian boat owner — could
not get visas through normal
procedures.

Mr Bain said his boats had
been idle since last year when
he refused to take part in a visa
scam which would have
involved him paying well over
the odds to employ Haitian
crewmen. ;

The Ministry of Foreign
Affairs has said the visa scam
claims .are being investigated.
But so far no report has been
forthcoming.

“Prime Minister Perry
Christie is MP in my area, so
what is he going to do about
it?” Mr Bain asked yesterday.

“T have been told by the
police that I can’t go to the visa
department anymore. They
have barred me.

“Yet I can prove everything I

He said: “We in the minority
party in parliament are not sat-
isfied, and nothing in the
speech convinces us otherwise,
that this government has con-
nected the dots between its
espoused environmental con-
sciousness and its actual man-
agement of the environment,”
said Mr Ingraham.

As Mr Bain threw out the

refused. zs
“Nothing has changed. The
‘mules’ were here yesterday and’
today.
“The PM has shuffled his

Cabinet but he has been shuf-

mules are still walking away
with stamped passports every
day,” it was alleged.

It was also alleged that the
90-day visas are handed by traf-

’ fickers to incoming Haitians,

who then become absorbed into .
local Haitian communities.

Mr Bain and others com-
plaining about the alleged rack-
et say it is not only undermining .
the country economically, but
also posing major security risks.

“These visas are being
stamped without any checks
being made on the people com-
ing in,” said the Norfolk House
source. “In this day and age,
this is a very serious matter.”

Minister: Govt will not stop until
every illegal immigrant captured

@ By KARIN HERIG
Tribune Staff Reporter

ALL illegal immigrants desig-
nated for repatriation will be fin-
gerprinted before leaving the
Bahamas, it was revealed yes-
terday.

The intention is to establish
records for returning and crimi-
nal illegal immigrants, newly-
appointed Minister of Labour,
Immigration and Training Shane
Gibson announced.

This fingerprinting initiative is
only one of several:new pro-
grammes to be introduced to
tackle the Bahamas’ problem of
illegal immigration. ©

Addressing the House of
Assembly, Mr Gibson said his
ministry will also no longer

" accept applications for work per-

mits from people already living
in the Bahamas and will closely
scrutinise all applications of per-
mits to reside.
The minister took the oppor-
tunity to send out a call to all
illegal immigrants to voluntari-
ly leave the country and to
Bahamians who employ illegals
o “get rid of them” now.
He said the government will
not stop until it has captured
“every single” illegal immigrant.

. As it concerns the introduc- ©

tion of fingerprinting, Mr Gib-
son said once immigration offi-

i cials determine that a person will
“'bé deported, fingerprints will be

taken from that person, “in the

| resignation

ANGLICAN Archbish-
op Drexel Gomez con-
firmed yesterday that he
has réceived a resignation
letter from Archdeacon
Ranfurly Brown.

Archbishop Gomez,
who is conducting a mis-

context of the law, the constitu-
tion and on the advice of the
Attorney General’s Office.”

“That’s important for a num-
ber of reasons. First of all we
have the same illegals coming to
the Bahamas over and over
again.

“They leave on one boat and
come back on the next. They
leave with one name and they
come back on the next name,”
he said.

Number

Mr Gibson also said that a
large number of illegal immi-
grants commit criminal offences
in the Bahamas.

“They commit a crime, we

deport them. We have no record’

of who they are, and then they
come back again and commit the
next crime,” he said.

The minister said there will be
changes in policy regarding the
application process of work per-
mits. Applicants living in the
country will no longer be granted
permits.

“We've decided that, effective
immediately, we will not be
entertaining any application of
any individual for the first time
who is residing in the Bahamas,”
he said.

Mr Gibson said that in too
many cases individuals come to
the Bahamas illegally and then
seek to legalise their stay in the

country.

From now on, he said, people
will have to apply for permits
from outside of the Bahamas.

A further major problem con-
cerned the granting of permits
to reside. ,

“You would have the individ-
ual coming legitimately on a
work permit as a housekeeper
or a gardener or whatever, and
they may have six or seven kids
outside of the Bahamas.

“And then they want to make
an application to reside and bring
all their kids in, who go to our
schools free and get health care
free,” he said.

Mr Gibson said these children
are placing a burden on the
country’s educational and health
care system.

The minister said the system is
also burdened by people apply-
ing for permits for farm labour-
ers, although they do not own or
operate a farming facility.

Mr Gibson said those attempt-
ing to obtain a work permit for

farm labourers will have to-pro-

duce documents proving they
own or are leasing a farm prop-
erty.

What is Christie’s design?

A WELL-PLACED source commented
ioday that he felt it highly unlikely that Fidel
«astro, who now wants to be seen as a friend
and leader in thé Caribbean, would take retal-
iatory action against the Bahamas should its
eovernment unite the two Cuban dentists, now
ii1 detention, with their families in the US.

This person believes that the threat of
Cuban retaliation is an exaggerated fantasy of
a timid imagination — possibly encouraged
irom past experience with the Cuban govern-
ment. The argument goes that if Castro wants
io be seen as a friend, as a humanitarian, and
as a Caribbean leader, he — as did the United
States in the Elian Gonzalez case in 1999 —
will accept that it would be unnatural to sep-
arate a husband from his wife and children,
and a wife from her husband and child. And
that if he wants to change his public persona
from tyrant to benevolent leader then — even
though these imprisoned dentists are.consid-
ered “indispensable” to the.Cuban state —
he will understand that they are not chattels,
and free them. They are human beings with
free will, in control of their own destiny and
deserving of their freedom of choice. |

Therefore, armed with these democratic
ideas, he would put a lie to his critics who
accuse his government of human rights abus-
es, if he were to announce: “Let my people go
— free.them to the embrace of their families.
There is no obligation to return them to Cuba
— let them decide their own futures.”

After all how can anyone régard Cuba.as.an
ideal country when its people cannot move
freely? How can Bahamians accept the Cuban
way of life — or even consider Cuba as a
“friend” — when its citizens have to flee in
boats from what they describe as insupport-
able tyranny?

When Bahamians get fed up with their gov-
ernment, and their social environment, they
pack their bags, go to the airport, buy an air-
line ticket and fly off in search of greener pas-
tures. Not so the Cubans. Those with ambition
live a double life, pretending to accept the
edicts of their government by day, but at night-
fall conspiring in dark corners to escape the
tyranny. They board unseaworthy craft to
make the Gulf crossing to freedom. Some
make it; some don’t. This is no way for free
men to live — man was not created to be a
slave to any man or any government.

In the House of Assembly yesterday Prime
Minister Perry Christie said he had made a
decision in the case of the dentists. He did
not say what that decision was — whether
they were to go to the US or Cuba — but
judging from the tenor of his comments it
would seem that the plan is to return them to
Cuba. This,-of course, is only a guess — we still
have not mastered the art of double-speak.

He said preparations to deport the two
Cubans are underway and he will infofm the
public “in due course” of his decision.

Nor did Mr Ingraham show his hand,
except to tell the House:

“TI hope that the two Cuban dentists
presently detained at the Carmichael Road
Detention Centre would not have to wait until
this new legislation relating to refugees and
asylum claims is drafted, introduced, debated,
enacted by Parliament and entered into force
prior to having their cases addressed by this
government.

“J do not believe that the Government’s
hands are tied in this matter. The Govern-
ment does have a difficult decision to make
and it ought to make it based on existing laws,
relevant agreements in place and past practice.
The government must determine its options
and then act — act in the best interest of The
Bahamas.”

The existing agreement to which he
referred was negotiated by his government in
1995 to make certain that Cuba would accept
their nationals who had escaped for the Unit-
ed States, but much against their will — and
the Bahamas’ wishes — had washed up on
Bahamian shores.

In the execution of that agreement, the
FNM government sought the help of the UN
High Commission on Refugees, who exam-

ted. The Haitians were later added. When the
numbers became too great, the UNHCR
trained Bahamians to do the vetting, and only
came in to review difficult cases. The final
decision was left to the Bahamas government.

Notwithstanding the agreement with Cuba,
the FNM government’s practice was that cer-
tain Cubans were not returned to Cuba.

Rather they were released to other countries. ©

Said Mrs Janet Bostwick, who as FNM For-

eign Affairs Minister negotiated the 1996 and —

1998 accords with Cuba: “Sovereignty is very
important, but you don’t close your eyes to
your position in the world. Pride is fine, but
you have to face reality and realise that you
have to interact with certain people more than
others.” And as Dame Eugenia Charles, the
late no-nonsense leader of Dominica used to
-say in her very practical way: Leaders must

always remember that in deciding the future of .

their people, sovereignty has its place, but it is

not something that can be put in the pot and |

boiled.

It is significant that during his almost 10
years in office Prime Minister Hubert Ingra-
ham never set foot on Cuban soil. He obvi-
ously knew on what side the Bahamas’ bread
was buttered. me

EDITOR, The Tribune

In a February 20th column
Andrew Allen - discussed
“Racism, The Nassau Institute
and Helen Klonaris.” It was his
appraisal of a February 4 Letter
to the Editor on “racism and
whiteness” by Helen Klonaris
and a subsequent critique by
the Nassau Institute. The latter
was characterized as being
“long winded” and failing to
recognize “the psychological
effects of a colonially imposed
value system.”

_ The thesis

For those who have not read
these articles, Helen Klonaris
stated that there is a “well
defined system of relationships
including educational curricu-
la, the legal system, Judeo
Christian church hierarchies and
the English language itself
whose effect is to suppress, con-
demn and ghettoize other cul-
tures.” Furthermore, she
accused white Bahamians in
general, and Brent Symonette
in particular, of an indifference

_ to African culture in this “age of .
racism.”

Mr Allen hailed Ms. Klonaris
for her honest, intelligent and
well thought-out contribution.

'. Yet he disagreed with it in‘an

important way; in a brief par-

f enthetical comment he dis-
, counted the “racism in the
. Bahamas is based on the per-

petuation of white economic
power” argument.
Instead he focused on the
psychological problems of
blacks dealing with a Christian
culture, He contended that

Blacks lost.contact with their.

historical origins when con-
fronted by Western European
culture whereas countries like
Japan and India did not.

What Mr. Allen did not clear-
ly say is that the cultures of

India, China and Japan were

“much further” developed at
the time of that confrontation
with the West than the cultures
of sub-Sahara Africa at the time
of their confrontation.
The critique

Furthermore, the Institute
provided a framework for
thinking about “race and white-
ness.”

It quoted Thomas Sowell’s |

history of slavery (Conquests

_. and Cultures: An International

History) and the critical role

‘that Great Britain played in the

elimination of large scale slave
trade both west and east from
Africa.

It went beyond this to discuss
the reasons for the unequal
development of the world. This

included a long reference to the,

significant work of Jared Dia-
mond (Guns, Germs and Steel:
The Fates of Human Societies).
Mr Allen never addressed
these points; instead he treated
the reader to a “long winded”
anti-Christian view of histori-
cal events. !
‘Non-European cultures

All non-Western European '

societies inevitably must face
the reality that Western Europe
and its British off-shoots domi-
nated economic and social
development of the world from
the 15th to the 21st century.
One can grasp this fact by
looking at the incidence of out-
standing human accomplish-
ments in the arts and sciences.
This task is addressed by
Charles Murray in Human

of Excellence in the Arts and
Sciences, 800 B.C. to 1950.
This is a massive study of
4,002 individuals essential to the
story of literature, music, art,
philosophy, science and tech-
nology that “ranked them
according to their eminence.”
The author went to great
lengths to eliminate a Eurocen-

tric bias by including invento- —

ries and appraisals of individuals
and events drawn from Arabic,
Chinese, Indian and Japanese
sources.

The bottom line of this work
is that the world’s really intense
levels of accomplishment did

not begin until a few centuries

ago and then “almost every-
thing came from Europe.” That
reality is a major problem for
the collective esteem of non-
Europeans even though there

Argument quoted

from my book

IN his attack on Mr Orjan Lindroth in the House of
Assembly, Mr Keod Smith MP cites my book, Blood and
Fire, in support of his suggestion that Mr Lindroth and his
father had Nazi connections.

There is nothing in my book that even hints at such a
thing. It’s true that Mr Axel Wenner-Gren — who employed

’ Mr Lindroth’s father, Arne — was widely suspected of hav-
ing Nazi links, but this was never proved conclusively, even
though he was friendly with the famous Krupp family and
others connected with the Nazi cause.

In fact, Mr Orjan Lindroth kindly allowed me to use his :
own views on the matter in Blood and Fire. These refuted
unequivocally any suggestion that Wenner-Gren was a Nazi
sympathiser and stated that he was firmly behind the Allied

imbalance is changing rapidly.
The problem

Not only this but the big
political and economic obsta-
cles to racial equality...the insti-
tutional obstacles...are a thing
of the past especially in the
Bahamas. Despite the evidence,
Helen Klonaris wants all to
know that white racism is not
dead even though black
Bahamians can now “over-
come.”

In looking at comparable
developments in the U.S. John
McWhorter (Losing the Race)
concludes that the U. S. Civil
Rights movement now defines
“blackness as that which resists
whiteness” and this creates an
“ideological sea of troubles.”

It encourages “the black
American from birth to fixate

‘upon the remnants of racism

and resolutely downplay all
signs of its demise” and “to con-
ceive of black people as an
unofficial sovereign entity, with-
in which the rules of others are
expected to follow.”

It encourages anti-intellectu-
alism that is rooted “in the.cul-
ture of poverty and disenfran-
chisement and now becomes a
culture-internal infection nur-
tured by a distrust of the for-
mer oppressor.”

Much of John McWhorter’s
observations are directly applic-
able to the Bahamas.

And...if one thinks about
it...one can rightly conclude.
that the Klonaris thesis should
not be hailed as an honest, intel-
ligent and well thought-out con-
tribution to a dialogue on cul-
ture. It is, in fact, a dangerous
diversion from dealing with
today’s problems in a rational
way for the benefit of all.

Protesting teachers:
Govt counter-proposal

2nd Place - Delphino Gilbert

is ‘a slap in the face’

HUNDREDS of teachers who
protested in Parliament Square yes-
terday called the government’s
counter-proposal to their salary
demands a “slap in the face” and “an
insult”.

However, Minister of Education
Alfred Sears reminded protesters that
negotiations were still underway.

Bahamas Union of Teachers presi-
dent Ida Poitier-Turnquest said pub-
lic school teachers: had not had a
salary increase since 2002.

“The government is offering a five-
year agreement but the union is only
seeking a three-year agreement,” she
said.

Union

According to Mrs Turnquest, the

?. union is firstly seeking an immediate

$4,000 lump sum retroactive to 2005
for each of its 3,500 teachers in the
bargaining unit.

She said the government proposal,

however, only offered:a $700 lump

sum.

According to Mrs Poitier-Turn-
quest, the BUT is also seeking the
addition of $3,600 to the base salary of

d teachers.

The union proposed that this

: amount be added to base salaries from

January 1 to June 30 of this year,

tem.

which ends the first year of the agree-
ment. The government’s proposal sug-
gests, however, that only $600 be
added to the base.

In year two of the agreement, which
runs from July 1, 2006-June 30, 2007,
the union is seeking the addition of

$4,800 to base salaries while the gov- _

ernment is offering only $600.

_,.Proposed

In year three of the BUT’s propos-
al, which runs from July 1 to June 30,
2008, the union is seeking an addi-
tional $3,600 to base salaries, but the
government has proposed that that
period be set aside for a compensation
study.

In 2008, the fourth year of the gov-
ernment’s proposal, the government is
offering the addition of $750 to base
salaries and concludes the agreement
in year five, which is 2009, with the
implementation of a high performance
evaluation Seem or a merit pay sys-

The proposal also seeks to extend
school hours from 8.30am to Spm and
shorten summer vacations for teachers
to three weeks in July and one in
August.

Of the three weeks, teachers would
be required to spend 20 hours in pro-

- fessional development.

profitability can go hand in hand

UNIVERSITY of the West Indies
lecturer Dr T Jennifer Edwards
explained to her Caribbean travel and
tourism class that sustainability and
profitability can go hand in hand.

To give students a better under-
standing, Sandals Royal Bahamian Spa
Resort and Offshore Island’s environ-
mental manager, Janelle Hutcheson,
in an in-depth presentation, acknowl-
edged that there are many benefits to
environmental management.

Among them she listed the signifi-
cance of preserving natural resources
for future generations and future visi-
tors.

“We have a beautiful country with a

number of precious resources but we -

must take care of it,”
Hutcheson.

Protecting

She noted that taking care is not
limited to removing trash from road-
ways and keeping areas clean, but also
protecting the environment.

According. to Sandals’ chairman,
Gordon Stewart, Sandals has commit-
ted itself to becoming the first envi-
ronmentally friendly hotel chain in the
Caribbean. This is one of the most
important projects ever undertaken
by a hotel chain in the region..

“We have recognised that the very
survival of our planet depends on us
making a concerted effort to protect
it,” he said.

explained Mrs

Mrs ‘Hutcheson ssininga: to UWI

students that since 1999 Sandals

Resorts International had implement-
ed environmental management pro-
grammes at all its properties.

Sandals has realised significant
financial savings since beginning this
initiative in water and energy con-
sumption alone.

“We treat our waste water, which is
then used for irrigation. Our water-
sports team members reinforce our
‘no touch’ policy to our guests at their
daily orientation before snorkelling
and diving trips.

“We use non-biodegradable pesti-
cides when treating our plants and
environmentally friendly fertilisers.”

Encourages

She further explained that team
members are encouraged to conserve
electricity and water in their respective

_work areas, as well as report leakage

to the engineering department for
immediate repair.

Professor Edwards said that, as a
graduate of the university, it was a
bonus to have Mrs Hutcheson return
as a guest presenter.

“These students are our future pro-
fessionals and it is important for them
to see how they can assist in protecting
the environment.

“Sandals is a role model for the
Caribbean and it is imperative that
students see that we can do business
and save the environment at the same
time.”

Minister V Alfred Gray has

“T want you to know that we

He said that elected local

Mr Gray noted that the gen-

ciations in the Bahamas
under its umbrella con-
gress, officials said yester-
day.

Currently, the associa-
tion has some 40 members
and is seeking to enlist
more, President Leslie
Sweeting told The
Tribune.

He said the idea of an
association of retired
employees was formulated
before, but it was not until
July last year that the
association was actually
formed.

Executives said one of
the initiatives to be
pressed by the congress is
the promotion of a
National Occupational
Retirement Programme
for all employees in the
Bahamas.

The congress is also
seeking to promote the
portability of member
pensions - meaning that
employee pension rights
will follow them from
employer to employer.

The congress is also
seeking the appointment
of retirees to government
boards, committees and to
private sector boards as _
well as the establishment
of a credit union for
retirees and a private sec-
tor retirees association.

Affiliation with the
American Association of
Retired Persons is also
among the organisation’s —
goals. ;

Executives say the affili-
ation will allow for the
establishment of retire-
ment homes in the

Bahamas.

‘cocaine seizures

MARIJUANA seizures
doubled in 2005, while
cocaine seizures decreased. as
a result of previous years’
break up of the largest drug
trafficking organisation in the .
Bahamas, the US Interna-
tional Narcotics Control Strat-
egy Report said.

The report, released yes-
terday, said that it was found
that most of the cocaine flow
originates in Colombia and
arrives in the Bahamas by go-
fast boats or small aircraft
from Jamaica and Haiti.

During 2005, law enforce-
ment officials identified 41
suspicious go-fast type boats
in Bahamian waters. In addi-

tion, there were 16 drug .

smuggling aircraft detected
over Bahamian territory.
Small amounts of drugs were
found on individuals transit-
ing through the international
airports in Nassau and Grand
Bahama and the transatlantic
cruise ship ports.

In 2005 Bahamian law
enforcement officials identi-
fied shipments of drugs in

Haitian sloops, fishing boats,

small aircraft and pleasure
vessels. Sports fishing vessels
and pleasure craft transport
the cocaine from the Bahamas
to Florida, blending into the
legitimate vessel traffic that
moves daily between these
locations. _—_,

Larger go-fast and sports

fishing vessels regtilarly trans-.

port between 1000:to 3000
pounds of marijuana ship-
ments from Jamaica to the

According to the report, the ~

Bahamas still remained a

for the US from South Amer-

The Bahamas, the.report

said, is not considered a sig-

drug precursor chemicals. .

As of November 2005,.

During 2005, the DEU
seized 1.01 metric tons of
cocaine and 13 metric tons of
marijuana. (OPBAT seizures

_are included in DEU’s total).
The DEU arrested 1,382 per-
sons on drug-related offences
and seized drug-related assets,

‘including five boats and five

vehicles.

Cocaine seizures decreased
compared to 2004 levels. This
decrease is the result of the

Five distractions

of pe

REMEMBER the first

time I walked into the -

House of Assembly as the
member of parliament-elect for

.the constituency of Fort Char-

lotte in March, 1997. |
I was excited, awed, opti-

mistic and proud. I tried to soak
’ up the history of the more than

200-year-old halls that I had
entered as well as the meaning
of the history I was making, as
the youngest élected parlia-
mentarian at thé time.

“The baby is in the house”
“was the chant of my faithful

supporters in Fort Charlotte, a
reference to the fact that my
political opposition often’ said
during the campaign that I was
a baby being sent to.do.a man’s
job. I also tried to come to
terms with the weight of the
awesome responsibility that was
then mine as.a representative
of the people.:

It was my tendency to take
seriously almost everything I

did, a tendency, my mother ©

oftén reminded ‘me, that I pos-
sessed from when I was a child.

’ Try as much as I did, howev-
er, it was a'struggle to focus con-
tinuously on the biggér picture,

for too often petty political play

threatened to distract me.
Petty political play; this is a
great danger in politics. There

are at least five of them that I

found most distracting and that
I see distracting many of the
office holders today, particular-
ly those on the government side.

DESPERATION FOR.
PERSONAL POLITICAL -
SURVIVAL

irst, there is the desper- -
ation of wanting to sur-—
vive personally in office. Most

politicians who achieve office
want to stay there, perhaps not
forever but certainly. until they
choose. to leave: 042.

The majority of vohticians
fear losing office.or being
unelected like boxers feared
Mike Tyson in his prime. Being
rejected by the electorate.is for

politicians akin to being caught |.
with your pants down; it isa
shame few believe they could "

survive.
_ This desperation to survive



Being rejected
bythe
electorate is
for politicians
akin to being |
caught with
your pants

‘down; itis a

shame few
believe they.
could survive.



politically drives many politi-

cians to behave in ways that
defy commonsense. Some say
what they. do not mean, even

‘tell outright lies. Others remain _
silent.where their speech is

absolutely required:
Yet others simply try to pan-

_ der to every special interést they

feel can guarantee their political

_ well-being, especially the
-monied interests.

In this survival mode, politi-
cians feél suffocated by and con-
strained to satisfy a multitude
of requests from constituents to
do all manner.of things, many
quite personal in nature and tru-

ly outside the responsibility of a -

political official.
~The attempt .to do so

. becomes dizzying and, rather

than be focused on those things
that répresent community
efforts, many politicians find
themselves distracted by petty
political play.

DESPERATION TO KEEP
THE PARTY IN POWER

econd, there is the des-
peration of wanting to
remain in power as a political
party. In our system of govern-
ment, individual politicians

come to discover very early that._

they matter less than the party;
put another way, they come to



olitics

H

know that, more often fie not,

“their party was. elected rather

than.them..

As.such, they recognise that -
_ the party.must forever be seen

as attractive td. the electorate
and whatever makes the party
look bad makes them less like-
ly to be-ré-élected.

This is why that famous
phrase “toe the party line”
comes into the fray. Listen to

many of the members of the.

government today and observe
how loyally they. adhere to cer-
tain party lines that we know
they do: not subscribe tO per-
sonally: . -

They hail PM Christie as a.

great leader when privately they
criticise tiis leadership. Publicly,
they praise, all they say: their
party has done but privately
some executive members com-
plain that the party did not have

- even one newly constructed

_ ing to office. oe
Listen for the silence ott thiihy Sak
who were’so vocal.on a num- _

ber of issues before coming to

office. Where are the great crit-
ics of the excessive power of the —

prime minister or the need to
abolish capital punishment? «

Where are those who thought

that we focused too much ‘on

foreign investment? Where are
those who insisted that a high ©
_standard of morality and ethics

be observed by political hold-

‘ers? They have faded into the
background: of party. politics, ;

toeing lines that. pretend that

call is well in the nation and their.
party is doing a ee at service to.



this aim. Forget the people, its
all about the party. .

L gery of swallowing
your own hype: It is-one thing to

want to make great changes in

ferent thing to believe that you

‘and you will swear théy actual-

go away. You can fallon it and

be broken or it will fall.on you
éventually and you will be

_ crushed. 4

DISMISSING NEGATIVE
PRESS —

ourth, there is the ten-

dency to dismiss out-of-
hand negative press. Politicians
and political parties want to sur-
vive; they want to hold on to
office.

Any negative press is a threat
to doing so. Naturally then
there is a strong desire to
ignore, reject or outright dis-
miss any:such press. Listen to
government ministers respond
to any bad press; they charge
those carrying it with having an
agenda, with being. anti-gov-

ernment and.at times with being ©

anti-black.

Never mind that they have
no proper counter to the press
or that the press is carrying
views expressed by many peo-
ple in the nation; for politicians
in the survivalist mode, it is all a
conspiracy, one big plot to get
rid of them.

Even when they are told of a
tide of public opinion going
against them, they dismiss this

. alas a political 6 com-—
munity is the key,.so:many
politicians become distracted by ©

as “noise in the market place”.



LAING

Well, I remember the noise in
the market place during the
2002 general election; as it

. turned out, the noise was quite

reflective of the price of fish at

the time. The two might have
much in common today but dis-
tracted power holders might

.feél more inclined to dismiss
_ this fact.

PREOCCUPATION WITH

PUBLIC RELATIONS

ifth, there is a tendency
in the end to be preoc-
cupied with public relations

- rather than public service. Pub-

‘ lic rélations has its place but no-
--one should be fooled, it is not a
- substitute for public service.

Sometimes, public service
makes for poor public relations

“ers must fthake do not always

make the public happy. Take

for instance the matter of pub-

lic indebtedness. It might be.

“wise for the government to:

raise taxes or cut certain ser-
vices to ensure that the deficit

‘cand the public debt to not

become too burdensome for

: the nation. Both options are’

unpopular with the public but

might be the right things to do

..for the nation.

. Seldom are political leaders

-in our nation prepared to sacri-'

.fice public relations for public

service. They would much

‘rather do nothing and make

great hay about it in the press:
than. do something unpopular
and.try to explain to the public

why they must do so.

The present administration is
guilty of this on many scores.
In fact, when things go wrong, it
seems that the leadership of our
nation runs for cover, including

‘the prime minister.

‘Rather than address the
nation, silence reigns for.a long

‘time and heads are only poked

up when they believe the dust

has settled. However, sign a
‘Heads of Agreement, cut the

ribbon for the opening of a toi-
let block or toss the ball at.a
park basketball tournament and

_a great entourage of officials
- and press attends.

It is quite pitiful what is hap-
pening in our state affairs these
days. The quality of our lead-

-ership, the quality of our nation-

al dialogue, the depth of our

‘public service and that the

breadth of our national inter-
est are all hanging in the bal-
ance.

We argue over who attend-
ed-the opening of parliament
rather than what was presented
at the opening. We juggle
around executive offices for
political expediency rather than

. for better government.

- We fly here and there to
make inflated announcements
about things we hope will hap-
pen while we ignore the press-
ing issues we know are happen-
ing. We benefit from the boun-
ties of foreign interests and call

them our achievements while
we do few of the things within
our power to advance our own
well-being. There is a better
way and I trust that we will find
it.

THE TRIBUNE



Teachers demonstrate

FROM page one

over the proposed work
hours and pay increases.

Vanda Moss, a teacher at
Donald Davis school
expressed her displeasure to
The Tribune.

“I am very disturbed that
the government has not seen
fit to honour our proposal.
We have tried our best and
it seems as if it has fallen
on deaf ears by the fact that
they want us to work from
8.30 to 5, they want to short-
en our summer vacation.”

Mrs Moss said the amount
’ of money being offered
showed that the Ministry
was trying to offer them “a
pittance” compared to what
some of the other govern-
ment agencies received. “It
is an absolute disgrace that
we have to come out here
and take such a stand when
they know good and well
that we are the nation
builders,” Mrs Moss said.

The crowd’s excitement
grew louder when Minister
Sears entered Parliament
Square and many began
chanting, “Pay me what you
owe me!”

Addressing an excited
crowd Minister Sears tried
to. explain that the negotia-
tion process was still under-
way, however many of his
words fell on deaf ears.

“We are in the process of
negotiating a collective bar-

gaining agreement, the laws

of the Bahamas impose an
obligation on the union as
well as the government.
“The law requires that both
sides negotiate in a reason-
able and constructive man-
ner,” Minister Sears said.

“What either side gets as a
proposal as well as a counter
proposal is only the begin-
ning. The union, along with
the government, will meet
on March 9 so that both
sides can reach an agree-
ment,” Mr Sears told the
crowd. However, many still
seemed discontented and a
large crowd moved to Par-
liament Street.

Those who remained in
Parliament Square spotted
the arrival of Prime Minister
Christie and surrounded him
as well.

The prime minister
expressed his disappoint-

ment at the way the protest. !

was carried out.

“IT am always concerned
that when we have to take
aggressive action that we are
relating it to school children
and their perception of what
they have to do to express
themselves. “I am concerned

. about the example that we
as leaders and teachers are
setting for our children.
“When you try to redefine
the way things are to be
done you must remember

that you are redefining them ;

for not just yourselves but
also the people who are
watching you.”

Deaths ‘not caused by bird flu’

FROM page one

caused the deaths of the birds,
but believe it could have been
from “many, many causes.”

Newly appointed Minister of
Agriculture Leslie Miller said:
“Atlantis had indicated that their
stock had made a downturn due
to the rumours on the interna-
tional market. Now remember
the Bahamas is a tourism centre
that attracts some 5 million visi-
tors here per year.

“Even a proposed outbreak or
rumour, the competition would
continue to put those rumours
out there so that tourists would
visit their shores instead of ours,”
he said.

Mr Miller said that luckily for
the Bahamas, the virus has not
reached the Bahamas.

“Luckily for us, God bless us,
no outbreak has taken place. The
Bahamas is safe and secure from
the disease that those birds carry.

“When one considers the dis-
tance that those birds have to
travel, from Europe, from Asia,
and from Africa, to arrive in the
Bahamas, if those birds were in
fact unhealthy, it would be unlike-
ly that they would have made that
distance,” he said.

Contradicting previous reports
that some 21 birds of three dif-
ferent species were found dead,
the ministry maintains that only
five flamingos were found dead.

However, Bahamas National
Trust officials maintain that more
than five birds have died, and pos-
sibly of the 21 deaths, only five
could not be explained.

RE: SENIOR ASSOCIATE/DATABASE ADMINISTRATOR



Dr Geoffrey Lunn of the Min-
istry of Agriculture was in Inagua
doing preliminary research on the
birds. However, due to the decom-
position of the remains, samples
could not be taken to analyze if
the HSN1 virus was present.

However a statement from the
ministry reads that if the deadly
HS5N1 virus was present, it would
have decimated the large flock
of flamingoes and other birds on
Inagua.

The statement reads: “It is to
be noted that other countries in
the region have had similar scares
recently and that mortality of
birds attributed to other causes
and not the deadly virus H5N1
which to date have been con-
firmed in Europe, Asia, and
Africa.”

Also lending his voice to the
matter, Prime Minister Perry
Christie said that the government
has made a very quick response,
“as it is now known to do”, will
continue to work towards con-
firming that the evidence found
today is “incontrovertibly cor-
rect.”

“Tt opines to me,” he said, “that
the birds were so clearly old that
they (the scientists) have not dis-
missed the theory that they
(flamingoes) have died of old age
and the elements there.

“That is something that the
Ministry of Tourism can now take
and communicate worldwide, but
we will continue to work towards
making absolutely certain that the
preliminary findings at the site
are incontrovertibly correct,” he
said.”

‘No preference for Cubans’

FROM page one

he has made the final decision
in the question as to whether
the two doctors should be repa-
triated to Cuba or released to
the Unites States.

He said preparations for the
deportation of the two Cubans
are underway and that he will
inform the public “in due
course” of the nature of his
decision in this matter.

During the House’s morning
session, Mr Christie said that
he has expressed “fundamental
objection” to US President
George Bush concerning the
current policy in dealing with
Cuban and Haitian migrants.

“J felt the Bahamas in its
approach has been careless,” he

:- said.

Referring to his meeting with
Florida Jeb Bush last week, Mr
Christie said: “As I told Gover-

: -nor Bush, this government of a

black country is discriminating
against Haitians in favour of
how we deal with Cuban nation-
als. J am refusing to do that. You
have a different policy in dealing
with Haitians than you do when
dealing with Cubans. -

“It’s happened in the US. I

told President Bush I am not

going to condone it,” he said.

Last week during the visit of
Governor Bush, Mr Christie
said that: Mr Bush left the
expectation on‘the table that
the Bahamas government
would “aggressively” address
the concern of continued deten-
tion of the two doctors.

The two doctors, David Gon-
zalez Mejias and Marialys
Darias Mesa, were caught 10
months ago in their attempt to
emigrate from Cuba by the way
of the “visa lottery” which is
held annually by the US.

Both have relatives living in
the US. Dr Marialys Darias
Mesa’s husband Ihovany Her-
nandez, an electrician, settled
in Cape Coral, Florida, where
he has a brother. He now has a
Green Card and is a permanent
resident of the United States.

Dr David Gonzalez Mejias’
wife, Dayami, and their two
children, Carlos, 14, and
Flavia,7, have settled in Tam-
pa, where they have friends.

According to reports, Cuban
président Fidel Castro would not
let them leave the country
because their medical training
made them too valuable to spare.

In the US, two Congressmen,
Ileana Ros-Lehtinen and Con-
nie Mack said they would be
lobbying for economic sanctions
against the Bahamas in Con-
gress if the dentists were not
sent to the US.

Last night, Mr Christie said:
“Just as we gave the Cubans the
opportunity to be tested by
United Nations agencies for
refugees,” said Mr Christie, the
Bahamas should apply the same
policy to Haitians. .

The prime minister said that
the Bahamas has entertained
the submissions of.Governor
Bush, as well as those of major
personalities, both elected and
non-elected in the US.

Hanna-Martin proposes ‘one airport’

FROM page one

During the House of Assem-
bly’s sitting yesterday, Mrs Han-
na-Martin said that her ministry
needs to sit down and speak
with the private owners of the
Stella Maris airport to see what
can be done in the-shortest pos-
sible time.

- “Tt?s a privately owned air-
port, it is not a government
--owned airport: The department
of the civil aviation is the regu-
latory oversight, we’re not
responsible for the mainte-
nance of that facility, the pri-

vate owners are. But, of course, ...

from a safety point of view we
are responsible, and when we
were told that it was not in a



safe condition we had to do
what had to be done, but we
are assessing.

“The amount, we’ve been
told, is.in the millions. We need
to sit down with the owners of
that airport to see what can. be
done in the shortest ‘possible
time. We are (looking) at where

an airport can be placed. A sin-’

gular airport, that is positioned
in a way that is fair to everyone
on the island. That would be an
international airport, but that’s a
more long term issue,” she said.
- However, she said that in the
short term the airport at Dead-

man’s Cay, will be equipped as a.

port of entry status.
. “I understand that one of the
problems is that with Bahama-

sair, people have to buy tickets
in advance. The problem is they
fear having to travel from Stel-
la Maris to Deadman’s Cay just
to buy a ticket,” she said.

As a result she said, her min-
istry is seeking to establish a
ticket office in Stella Maris.
However, she said, they have
not yet committed to a solution
on the lack of transportation
between the two airports.

“Deadman’s Cay will be
established as a port of entry,
international travel will be
established in Long Island and
we are doing all we can do to

, Minimise any disruption to the

tourism industry and also how it
impacts people, and the econo-
my generally,” she said.

Competition aims
to promote public’s
coastal awareness

THE Coastal Awareness
Committee of The Bahamas, a
group of stakeholders from the
private and public sectors
formed to heighten the public’s

awareness of the importance of .

preserving and protecting the
country’s coastline, has
launched the first of its nation-
al initiatives - poster and sci-
ence competitions.

The poster competition, enti-
tled Caring for Our Coast, is
open to all students in The
Bahamas aged eight and older.

Students may choose to high-
light the coastal eco-systems
and their importance to the
health and wealth of the nation.

They may also choose to
emphasise the threats and solu-
tions to these activities, or to
create an illustration that pro-
motes a healthy marine and
coastal environment.

The winning entries will be
reproduced as a Bahamas stamp
issue to create national aware-
ness of the importance of
coastal environments.

“The entire Bahamas is con-
sidered a coastal zone. The
health of our marine and coastal
environment has a direct impact
on the environmental, social
and economic well-being of
every Bahamian,” said Lynn
Gape of The Bahamas Nation-
al Trust and co-chair of the
Competition Committee for
Coastal Awareness. :

“During April, which is
Coastal Awareness Month in
the Bahamas, we are focusing
on how we impact our coastal

environment. The poster com-
petition invites students to share
their concerns and/or offer solu-
tions.”

The purpose of the second
competition, entitled Coastal

- Awareness Month Competition

2006, is to involve the youth of
the Bahamas in dialogue and
identify environmental chal-
lenges within their immédiate
surroundings and propose pos-
sible solutions to improve
and/or solve the problem.

The competition is open to
all students through their school
based science organisation. Stu-
dents will be allowed to enter as
individuals and/or groups rep-
resenting their individual
schools. Awards. will be given
to first, second and third place
winners in primary, secondary
and senior high schools.

“The competition is science
based and students will be
required to identify a problem
or, challenging issue in their
coastal environment using the
scientific method,” said Bever-
ly Taylor, science and technol-
ogy co-ordinator for the Min-
istry of Education and co-chair
of the Competition Committee
for Coastal Awareness.

“Tt is hoped that students will
be exposed to myriad skills,
opportunities and experiences
that will help develop and shape
their understanding of the
importance of science and tech-
nology in the further develop-
ment of an island nation.”

During April, which has been
officially declared “Coastal

& By Bahamas Information

‘ DISASTER managers and
planners from the public and
private sectors have begun work
on the development of an inte-
grated ‘institutional framework
that is-expected to support the
country’s National Relief Man-
agement Policy in the aftermath
of a disaster or emergency.
The. institutional framework
will outline the responsibilities

of allagencies involved in pro-.

viding, relief services in the
Bahamas following a disaster,
as a means of streamlining the
process into a coordinated
national strategy.

It will define the roles of pol-
icymakers, government min-
istries;.departments and agen-
cies. and non-governmental
organisations such. as the
Bahamas, Red Cross and the
Salvation. Army, in addition to

religious.organisations, civil:
society and-regional and inter- .

national aid organisations.
The.:framework will detail

procedures for preparing and

maintaining inventories. of ser-

vices, systems and supplies; pro- .
cedures for. mobilising services -

and systems; procedures for the

release, distribution and replen- |

ishment of emergency stores of
food, water, clothing and med-

Mandate

Carl Smith, NEMA co-ordi-
nator and undersecretary at the
Cabinet Office, said the estab-
lishment of an integrated
national strategy to detail the
roles of all agencies involved in
providing relief in The Bahamas
is part of the mandate set forth
in the Disaster Preparedness
and Response Act, 2006, enact-
ed by parliament in January.

Mr Smith said the Act pro-
vides for a more effective organ-
isation and mitigation of, pre-
paredness for, response to and
recovery from emergencies
and/or disasters.

He said hurricane activity, par-
ticular over the past two years

Hurricane Wilma in 2005, has

Smith said.

“At the end of the day, this
integrated strategy involving all
of the partners, will result in
better inter-agency cooperation
at the national, regional. and
international levels which will

also assist in avoiding duplica-

tion,” Mr. Smith said.

He said the Disaster Manage-
ment Act “is far beyond hurri-
canes or tropical storms” and
addresses contingencies for haz-
ards such as oil spills, flooding

_and any other number of human-—

made or natural disasters.

Mr Smith said his agency has
been “working very closely”
with the Caribbean Disaster
Emergency Response Agency
(CDERA) in developing a
model plan with regards to
strengthening the country’s
Relief Management Supplies
Policy.

The disaster managers and
planners who participated in the
consultations for the facilitation
of an integrated National Relief
Supplies Management Policy,
used CDERA’s Model Disas-
ter Relief Policy as a guide to
the further development of the
Bahamas’ integrated national
strategy, taking into account,
any geographic peculiarities that
may exist in the Bahamas.

“The process will also detail
what resources.are available at
the national, regional and inter-
national levels for each individ-
ual agency operating within the
Bahamas,” Mr. Smith added.

and stated. his enthusiasm to
work along with his new board
and the membership.

His stated aims for the society
were:
To provide: Emodonal, psy-
chological and: moral support
to patients and their families;

To serve as patient advocates
ensuring the availability of
appropriate, quality service at
an affordable cost;

To prevent the onset-of can-
cers by reducing individual risks
through our educational and
awareness activities; and

In the event a cancer cannot
be prevented, by making it pos-

sible to have it diagnosed and __ |

treated at its earliest stage, so as
to enhance patient survivability.

Tourism, farmers concerned over bird flu probe

@ By A FELICITY INGRAHAM
Tribune Business Reporter

BAHAMIAN tourism executives and
poultry producers yesterday said they

were concerned and watching with inter- .

est investigations into the deaths of sev-
eral birds in Inagua, given fears that the
incident may have resulted from avian
or bird flu.

David Lowe, general manager of Sun-
shine Farms, said he was closely moni-
toring developments in Inagua.

He said that if bird flu was found to be
behind the deaths there, the wild ring-
necked doves may have a lot to do with
the transmission of the disease to the
Bahamas.

From his personal experience, Mr
Lowe said these wild, protected birds
often visited the dump and other areas,
and then moved to areas where domes-
ticated or farmed animals feed.

He added that the aggressive birds

often run the chickens away from their
feed, and are known to even run dogs
away from their meals.

While speaking to Tribune Business,
Mr Lowe said he was watching several
whité egrets come into his farm.

' While his birds were in enclosed quar- :

ters, Mr Lowe said there was an area of
access that wild birds can penetrate and
sometimes interact with his chickens.

* Minister of Agriculture and Fisheries,

Leslie Miller, said that while bird farmers

* were watching the situation, he could not

express any “concerns or fears" for them
at such an early stage in the investiga-
tion.

Bahamas Poultry in Grand Bahama’

said it was certain that “we all have con-
cerns" about bird flu potentially entering
this part of the world.

The Ministry of Tourism’s bureau
chief, Edwin Lightbourne, said the Min-
istry was watching the situation “very

closely", and officials were in ‘constant

contact with officials from the Public
Health Department.

Mr Lightbourne said he was also aware
of the attention the situation was getting
in the US media, and the potential impact
this may have on, the tourism industry
through Americans being discouraged to
come here.

"However they, just like we are here,

_are just speculating," he said.

“There isn't much we can say at this
time until the investigations in Inagua
are complete."

The HSN1 bird flu strain has proved
deadly in the eastern hemisphere. Birds
often migrate to this country during the
colder seasons, which could further exac-
erbate the chances of bird flu coming to
these shores.

However, a ZNS news report reported
one official as saying that the birds could
have died due to the type of feed they
consumed. They were all found in one
feeding area.

Warning for Bahamas
over ‘implementing’
financial laws

li By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

THE US State Department yesterday again issued a thinly-
veiled warning that the Bahamas “must steadfastly and effec-
tively implement” reforms to its anti-money laundering regime,
zeroing.in on issues that kept this nation on the Financial Action
Task Force (FATF) monitoring list until recently.

The annual International Narcotics Control Strategy report
focused its criticism on the Bahamas’ responsiveness to interna-
tional requests for. assistance by foreign law enforcement and
regulatory authorities, and resources devoted to the police and
Attorney General’s Office to help them combat financial crime.

The US State Department’s report said: “The Bahamas should
provide adequate resources to its law enforcement and prosecu-
torial/judicial personnel to ensure
that investigations and prosecu-
tions are satisfactorily completed,

Mayaguana Heads of

Agreement ‘next week’

FROM page 1C

bune Business yesterday.

Back in December, Mr
Peet’s predecessor, Allyson
Maynard-Gibson, told a group
of religious leaders that the
Heads of Agreement for the
multi-million dollar Mayagua-
na investment was expected to
be signed in January.

She said it would “transform
the economy of Mayaguana
and improve the standard of
living for residents of that
island".

Addressing the House of
Assembly yesterday, Mrs May-
nard-Gibson said that at pre-
sent, Mayaguana residents
were already building a rock
crushing plant to prepare for
massive construction, road

paving and other infrastructur- .

al work. »

She also alluded to the pro-
posal made by the Teachers
and Salaried Workers Cooper-
ative Credit Union, which is
seeking government permis-
sion to proceed with its own
development ion in Mayaguana
that will complement the I-
Group's plans.

"TI applaud them in their
endeavours - that's what I call

visionary leadership," said Mrs
Maynard- Gibson, adding that

proposals. like the credit
union's gives Bahamian more
opportunities for SmepOWeL:
ment.

Union

Speaking with Tribune Busi-
ness yesterday, a credit union
spokesman said he welcomed

- her remarks, and that although

its Board had not been able to
meet with the Ministry of
Financial Services and Invest-
ments yet, Mrs Maynard-Gib-
son did speak with them this
week.

"T Berieys the door is still

open for the credit union," said
the spokesman. "We will also
be sending a letter to the new
minister, seeking an early
meeting with him. We look for-
ward to discussing our propos-

‘also that the Bahamian people

can have the opportunity to
benefit from the initiatives that
the credit union is putting for-
ward, as well as the investment
from the I-Group."

Credit

He said the credit union was
hopeful that once the Heads of
Agreement with the I-Group

‘is signed, the Ministry would

focus attention on its proposal.
The union is proposing an

investment between $3 to $6

million, including affordable
homes for residents and shop-
ping plazas. A credit union
team traveled to Mayaguana
last month, and successfully
registered numerous Mayagua-
nians.

There are about 300 people

living on the island, whose

economy has been described
as "sleepy".

The development between
the I-Group and the Hotel
Corporation, which is a 50/50
partnership through the
Mayaguana . Development

- Company, will take the form

of a frée trade zone, according
to Mrs Maynard-Gibson.
She said that like Freeport,

the construction of a free port

zone in Mayaguana will take

20 to 25 years to be fully built

out.

The project's first phase’

includes the construction of a
25-unit boutique resort, a 10-
slip marina, and a low-density

300-lot residential subdivision.

Further plans would include
a 50-slip marina, golf courses,
villas and condominiums.

Mrs Maynard-Gibson yes:

terday told the House. of

resort and industrial park
planned for Mayaguana would
help to alleviate social inequal-
ity in the southern Bahamas,
an area hit hard by poverty.
‘Apart from jobs, she said
poverty would be alleviated
through new housing, the sup-
ply of potable water and elec-
tricity, and entrepreneurial

opportunities.

Mrs Maynard-Gibson
acknowledged that the
Mayaguana project would
incorporate the largest bloc of
Crown Land of any develop-
ment in the Bahamas, but hit
back at those calling it a “land
giveaway”.

She pointed out that through
the Hotel Corporation’s 50 per
cent stake, the Bahamian peo-
ple through the Government
owned 50 per cent of the pro-
ject.

Mrs Maynard-Gibson said:
“Members of this place should
also note that in this landmark
development, unlike Freeport
where a developer retained 100
per cent of its profits and
owned all the land, the people
of the Bahamas are full 50 per
cent participants in this devel-
opment. ~

Poverty

“Poverty and inequality in
Mayaguana and the southeast-
etn Bahamas will be attacked
at their root, as Bahamians
there will continue to get good
jobs as those islands’
economies are reinvigorated.”

Out of investment projects
already started, Mrs Maynard-
Gibson said they were project-
ed to have a total capital spend
of $7 billion, of which $1.4 bil-
lion had already been spent.

She added that out of the

THE TRIBUNE

Hotel pension funds

owed ‘large sum’
by Royal Oasis

THE two hotel industry pen-
sion funds yesterday confirmed
a previous Tribune Business
story that they had moved to
take possession of the Royal
Oasis group’s assets due to the
“very considerable amount of
money” owed by the still-
closed Grand Bahama resort.

In a statement issued yester-
day, the Bahamas Hotel Indus-
try Management Pension Fund
and Bahamas Hotel and Allied
Industry Pension Fund said
they had “taken steps to take
possession of the assets or col-
lect the debts (including pro-
ceeds of sale) due to the Royal
Oasis Group of Companies”.

This effectively means that
the two pension funds will be
‘at the table’ in negotiations
between the hotel’s financial
backer, Lehman Brothers’ pri-
vate equity arm, and potential
buyers.

’ Lehman is understoad to be

looking for about $45 million
for the property, once it col-
lects on the insurance proceeds.
Although the move by the pen-
sion funds will not disrupt the
-esort’s sale, it means that a
dortion of the sales proceeds
nust be used to pay what they
are owed, which is understood
to be in the millions.

The two funds said the Roy-
al Oasis group had become
delinquent in paying contribu-
tions on behalf of its partici-
pating employees before it
closed in September 2004 as a
result of the hurricanes.

The Royal Oasis group,
which includes Tower at
Bahamia, Country Club at
Bahamia, Princess Vacation
Club, Princess Casinos and

Caribbean Utility Company,

had signed agreements oblig-
ating them to make contribu-

tions into the two pension
funds to ensure that participat-
ing workers would received the
defined benefits promised.

Contributions were based on
employee base salaries, and the
two pension funds said their
sustainability was dependent
on hotels making timely and
consistent payments on their
workers’ behalf.

The two pension funds said:

“The Royal Oasis group of |

companies became delinquent
in paying contributions. to the
funds during the period prior to
the closure of the properties in
2004, following Hurricanes
Jeanne and Francis. Despite all
the efforts of the trustees to
collect the outstanding contri-
butions, the management of
these properties failed to live
up to their obligations.

“The employees of the Roy-
al Oasis group of companies
have been given benefits and
pension credits for the period
up to the date of closure of the
property, even though contri-
butions were not being paid by
the Royal Oasis group of com-
panies. In addition, the trustees
continued to give pension cred-
its to the much reduced work-
force following closure.”

Pension credits have now



ceased to be built up, as the
Royal Oasis now has no
employees. All former
employees can now contact the
funds to determine the status of
their pension credits and bene-
fits.

The funds:said: “Prior to the
closure, the funds initiated legal
action to force the manage-
ment of the Royal Oasis Group
to comply with the agreements.
This action failed to achieve
the desired results, so the
funds’ attorneys then obtained
Supreme Court judgements
against the Royal Oasis group.

“Upon receipt of the court
orders, the trustees instructed
their attorneys to pursue suc-
cessive legal steps to get settle-

‘ment of these judgement debts.

At this time, the funds have
taken steps to take possession
of the assets or collect the debts
(including proceeds of sale)
due to the Royal Oasis Group
of Companies.

“The collection of these out-
standing contributions is para-
mount in order for the funds
to maintain their financial abil-
ity to meet the obligation to
pay benefits to all participants
and former employees of the
Royal Oasis group of compa-
nies.”

until the process was complete,

‘and requests for international
cooperation are efficiently
processed.”
‘ claims that more than 10 Inter-
net gaming sites - a favourite
target of US authorities - were
operating form the Bahamas,
although they were not
licensed to do business here.
_It added that while the
Bahamas’ strengthened anti-
money laundering laws had
made it far more ‘difficult for
drug traffickers to deposit large
sums of cash at banks, “a new
trend has developed of storing
extremely large quantities of
.cash in security vaults at prop-

‘erties deemed to be safe hous- .

”

Other money laundering
methods commonly used by
Bahamian drug dealers were
the purchase pof real estate,
vehicles and jewellery, and
washing dirty money through
a web of legitimate ‘front’ com-
panies and shell firms.

The US State Department’s
report noted that the Central
Bank:of the Bahamas had

es

reported in September 2005
that 95 per cent of existing
bank accounts were compliant
with the Know Your Customer
(KYC) provisions of the Finan-
cial Transactions Reporting
Act.

“KYC requirements initial-
ly caused complaints by

Bahamians who were unable.
to produce adequate-docu:'''

mentation when attempting to
open accounts in domestic
banks,” the report said..

Absence

- “The absence of house num-
bers on most Bahamian streets,
the prevailing practice of utili-
ty companies’ issuing bills only
in the name of Jandlords rather
than tenants, and the scarcity of
photo identification among
Bahamians contribute to these
documentation problems.

“The Government of the
Commonwealth of the
Bahamas declined banking offi-
cials’ recommendations to
apply a risk-based approach to

"grandfather" Bahamas-based
accounts considered to be in
compliance, and instead
extended the compliance dead-
line to June 2006.”

inancial laws

The US State Department’s
report added:that the Central
Bank’s decision to phase-out
managed banks, who had
either to establish a physical
presence in the Bahamas or
cease operating, was seen as
having caused bank and trust
company numbers to fall from
301 in 2003 to 253 in 2005.

In addition, the Bahamian
Financial Intelligence Unit
(FIU) had received 67 suspi-

'. cious transaction reports

(STRs). between January and

‘May. 2005,.of which eight had

been forwarded for police
investigation and 55 were still
being analysed.
The US still named the
Bahamas as a jurisdiction of
‘primary money laundering

.concern’.. However, this is no

cause for alarm, as it is.an
annual labelling that reflects
the size of the Bahamian finan-
cial services industry, rather

than any abuse of the sector...
The US State Department

added that the Bahamas was

likely to become part of the US »

THE TRIBUNE



Soccer moguls win
verdict on frozen $9m
Bahamas account

FROM page 1B
trar, Indira Demeritte-Francis.
The content of those com-

munications was included in ~

Ms Lockhart-Charles’ Febru-
ary 6, 2004, affidavit, and never
contested.

Ms Lockhart-Charles alleged
that in October 2003, she told
the Deputy Registrar that her

clients wanted to apply for fur-.”

ther leave to place more evi-
dence before the Court of

Appeal, but needed more time.

The Privy Council found:
“Further telephone communi-
cations took place,,first in

December 2003 and again dur- - |

ing the week of. January 12,
2004, in the course of which Ms
Lockhart- Charles informed the

Deputy Registrar that the

assembling of the documents

and translations intended to be |

put in evidence was still not
complete.
“On both occasions Ms

Lockhart-Charles was’ ‘given’

assurances by the Deputy Reg-

istrar thatthe appeal-liad not «

yet been set down for hearing
and would not be set down dur-
ing January. It is worth repeat-
ing that no part of this account
is contested.

“On January 15, 2004, the
registry of the Court of Appeal
gave a written notification to
the Attorney General that the
appeal would be heard on Jan-

i uary 22, 2004. A similar notice

was sent to the bank, No such
notice was sent to.the appel-

“No explanation for the
oversight has. been offered.
There was, it must be inferred,
an administrative oversight in
the registry.”

Ms Lockhart-Charles alleged
that she only found out about
the January 22, 2004, hearing
from:a call by Ms Clarke from

the Registry to her at 10.30am *

that morning. -

She responded bi a saying this
must be a mistake in the light
of the Deputy Registrar’s
assurances, and told Ms Clarke
that she would go down to the
Court of Appeal or send an
associate. Ms Clarke said she
would get back to her.

Ms Lockhart-Charles said
there was no further contact
with the Court of Appeal’s reg-

-istry, and. only found out the

appeal had been struck out
when she went there the next

day. Again, the Privy Council
_ said this. was-not.disputed.

The Privy Council ruled: “In
their Lordships’ opinion, the

. Court of Appeal’s refusal to
_ reinstate the appeal did not do
_justice to the appellants. The
unchallenged: evidence of Ms.
_Lockhart-Charles shows that
“the non-appearance on 22 Jan- ©

uary, 2004. of anyone to prose-

_cute the appeal. when it was
‘calléd on was not attributable

ito any fault of the appellants

or their legal representa-

“The most that can be said.

against her is that, on receiv-
ing the telephone call from Ms
Clarke at 10.30am on 22 Janu-

‘ary, she did not immediately

go down to the court, recount
to the Court of Appeal the
assurances she had been given
by the Deputy Registrar,

explain why it was that she was.

not ready to open the appeal

and request an adjournment. ©

If she had done so, their Lord-
ships do not think the Court of
Appeal would have had any
real alternative. but to agree to
the adjournment.”

The Privy Council said Ms

’ Lockhart-Charles “had good

reason to believe” that the Jan-

uaty 22, 2004, listing was an _

administrative error and that

‘the case’.

court. el

Mr Dingemans QC, repre-
senting the Attorney General’s
Office at the Privy Council
hearing: agréed that his client’s
case would not be prejudiced if
the Gaydamaks’ appeal was rein-

_ Stated.

Their $9 million in the UBS
(Bahamas) bank account was pro-

. tected by the restraint order.

The.Privy Council ruled:
“The Court of Appeal in the
present case were, in their
Lordships’ respectful opinion,
in error.in directing. themselves

that ‘the Applicants must prove

that their case has a chance of

‘success’.

“Where a blameless absent
litigant whose case has been

' struck out is seeking its rein-

statement, and where there has
been no undue delay and there
is no likelihood of prejudice to

' the other parties, their Lord-

ships consider that it is for the
other parties to show the case
had no chance of success.

“Prima facie justice would
require the case to be re-instat#

_ed. The Court of Appeal could
‘ not have had any view as to thé
likelihood or unlikelihood of

the success of the propeses

argument as to the merits at

Mr Dingemans attempted t9

stated, but the Privy Council
did not allow him to address
them on that point.: a

As a result, the Privy Counci
allowed the Gaydamaks’
appeal against ‘the Court of
Appeal’s April 5, 2004, order,
and ordered that their appeal
against Justice Davis’s ordet
be reinstated and heard. %

Eagles soar
lead in championship

@ TRACK AND FIELD
By KELSIE JOHNSON
Junior Sports Reporter

THE LW Young Eagles
are heading into the final day
of competition in the Gov-
ernment Secondary Schools
Sporting Association (GSS-
SA) with a nine point lead
over defending champions
the CH Reeves Raptors.

The Raptors, who are look-
ing to capture their ninth
track and field championship
title, have posted a first day
score of 144 points to the
Eagles’ 153.

But, according to Fritz
Grant, the Raptors have
relinquished a comfortable
lead from the ‘first day
because some of their ban-
tam athletes didn’t show for
their events.

Grant said by the final

count today the points and -

divisions they have fallen in
would be restored.

He said: “Winning the
eighth consecutive title is
added pressure on the ath-
letes, when they find out that
the school has been so suc-
cessful at the meet they are
scared and some don’t show
up as a result of this.

“This was the case in the
bantam girls division. We had
a number of athletes down to
participate in the events in
this division but some of them
didn’t show up. There isn’t
much the coaches can do on
the first day but on the sec-
ond day we should be able to
correct . this.”
The Raptors are positioned
in sixth place in the bantam
girls division with six points,
leading the division is the AF
Adderley Tigers with 26
points, six points ahead of the
Eagles.

But the Raptors have taken
control of the junior and
intermediate girls division
with a combined score of 78
points, 36 points in the junior
girls and 42 points in the
intermediate girls.

Closest

The Raptors ‘have
outscored their closest coun-
terparts in the bantam boys
by more than seven points,
taking charge of the division
over the SC McPherson
Sharks.

‘Grant said: “We are on the
right road for getting our
ninth championships, we’re
not too worried about that.
There weren’t too many
finals today, but we are hop-
ing tomorrow that-our ath-
letes will be in the finals.

“We have positioned our-
selves very well, we aren’t
worried about that. In order
for us to capture the title all
the athletes would have to
show-up and I am sure they
will. It will just be a matter
of them doing their best.”

The first day, which is ded-
icated to the junior schools
and athletes, saw the com-
pletion of 42 events, prelimi-
naries and finals.

In the junior boys high
jump event finals, Jermaine
Hall of DW Davis Pitbulls
would leap his way into
national qualifications with a
clearance of 1.62 meters, edg-
ing out Ethan Rolle of SC
McPherson Sharks, who also
cleared 1.62m. Hall was
awarded the win over Rolle
as a result of knockdowns.

Hall said: “I am disap-

pointed with the height, I
think I could have done a
whole lot better than I did
today. On the second attempt
I thought IJ had cleared it ful-
ly but my legs hit down.

“This was good for me
when IJ went into the third
jump, I really thought I was
going to get it. Either my run-
up was bad or I was tired I
don’t know, but I am sure IJ
am going to correct it before
the nationals.”

The Raptors would take

the two top spots in the junior
girls discus throw with Raquel
Williams and Sydline Justilien
posting best throws of 24.02m
and 23.47m respectively.

The Eagles Romanda
Brown would hold off Jenes-

‘Jesus can help us

overcome temptation’

@ By FATHER JAMES
MOULTRIE .

EACH of us is involved in a
constant struggle against temp-
tation. We see from the Gospel
that Jesus too was tempted.
Hence, He understands our
weakness in the face of temp-
tation. And because he was vic-
torious over temptation, He
can help us. Let _us approach
Him with confidence, asking
for the help we need to over-

come the temptations which we |

will surely face.



»

In the Gospel appointed for
today we see Jesus being
tempted. We may wonder why
He was tempted since He was
God the Son. But Jesus had
two natures: human and divine.
It is the human Jesus who went
through the temptations. The
letter to the Hebrews says that
Jesus was.made “completely
like His brothers (and sisters).
In Him we have a high priest

who can feel our weaknesses .

with us; for He was tempted in
every way that we are, though
He is without sin” (Hebrews

2:17-18).

Jesus can identify with us.
He is like us in all things and
ways, sin excepted. He was
tempted as we are. He was not
immune to suffering, to hurt,
or disappointment. He deigned
to taste of human triumph, of
failure, and of death. He reject-
ed none of our joys; He only
rejected sin. This is the most
profound mystery of oe s
love.

‘We must commit ourselves to :

gone

All my dreams, pass before .

‘my eyes, a curiosity

Dust in the wind, all they are «

is dust in the wind.

Same old song, just a drop of

ground, though we refuse to see. .

Dust in the wind, all they are

Don’t hang on, nothing lasts

It slips away, and all your
money won’t another minute
buy.

Dust in the wind, all they are
is dust in the wind.

Dust in the wind, all they are
is dust in the wind.”

— Dust in the wind by

Kansas (1978)

I remember when I was a
few years younger, one of my
favourite songs was “Dust in
the wind” by the band Kansas
in 1978, (I guess I just dated
my self). Part of what attracted
me to the song was the haunt-
ing music, but the lyrics were

equally haunting and unset-
tling. “Dust in the Wind”
reminds me of the Old Testa-
ment book of Ecclesiastes, in
which we read:

‘Man has no advantage over
the animal. Everything is
meaningless. All go to the same
place; all are from the dust, and
to dust all return. Who knows if
the spirit of man rises upward
and if the spirit of the animals
goes down into the earth? So I
saw that there is nothing better
for a man than to enjoy his
work, because that is his lot.
For who can bring him to see
what will happen after him?
(Eccl. 3:19-22).

I can truly say as a Christian
I do not share the hollow
despair of “Dust in the Wind”.
Yet, I must say that I was and
still am moved by its profound
statement of what life without
God would be like. Like Eccle-
siastes, “Dust in the Wind”
doesn’t proclaim the Christian
gospel. But it summarizes the
bad news that prepares us to
hear the good news of what
God has done in Christ. Apart
from Jesus, “all we are is dust
in the wind. Everything is dust

in the wind.” There is an old
popular hymn, which says:

“Without God I could do
nothing, without him I would
fail, without him my life would
be broken, like ship without a
sail.”

reminded us that we are dust.
But for us as Christians we also
realise that we are far more
than merely dust. The celebra-
tion of Ash Wednesday gives
us a chance to focus on our
“dustiness,” If we want to. It
is the day to remember the bad
news of who we are apart from

Christ, so that we can begin to ~

prepare for the great news of
Good Friday and Easter

Ash Wednesday reminds us
of our own mortality and how
the world is in trouble because
of man’s inhumanity to man.
We are stuck in wars that seem
to have no end in site. The
criminal element has permeat-
ed our society, where you are
no longer safe in your own
home or place of business, all
we need do is recall the sense-
less killing of some one’s hus-
band, some child’s father, a
mother’s son and a business

Yesterday, Ash Wednesday,

man in the person of Keith
Carey.

When the dust was placed
on my head, I remembered
what Father Simeon Roberts
said at the funeral of one of my
cousins a few weeks. Father
Roberts said regardless of how
much money we might have or
despite the prestigious jobs we
might have or the degrees we
might acquire, we are all only
dust and ashes, and ail of us
will have the same road to walk
in order to gain our salvation.

He highlighted the humility
of the lady and said that we
were all called to imitate her
in her Christian journey. When
I heard the words from Eccle-
siastes 3: “You have come from
dust, and to dust you shall
return”. This gesture ought to

remind us that it is not about |

the negative, or what we are
giving up; it must be about
what we are gaining or improv-
ing. That regardless of our
dustiness, we have a Saviour
who invites us to become a part
of His heritage. That is to bring

Journalists selected
for fellowships in
science, religion

TWELVE prominent journalists from the United States,
the United Kingdom, and Europe have been selected for
the second annual Templeton-Cambridge Journalism Fel-
lowships in Science & Religion.

The fellowships, widely praised since their launch in
2004, include a programme of research and scholarship at
the University of Cambridge in England. The 2006 fellows
were announced today by the New York office of the

-Templeton-Cambridge Fellowships, which are funded by
the John Templeton Foundation of West Conshohocken,
Pennsylvania.

In the fellowship programme, a diverse group of emi-
nent journalists examine the dynamic interface of science
and religion through seminars and discussion groups at the
University of Cambridge, led by some the world's most
foremost physicists, cosmologists, and theologians, as-well

as through independent research. The fellowships provide _

a $15,000 stipend, plus a book allowance, and a
-expenses.

This year's fellowship recipients represent a broad
sweep from the field of journalism, a reflection, the pro-
gramme’ S organisers say, of the extent of the current inter-
est in the field of science and religion. Included among the
2006 fellows are journalists, editors, and correspondents
from the Washington Post, The Guardian, Wired, U.S.
News & World Report, Slate, and Reuters, as well as news
producers at NPR and the BBC.

The Templeton-Cambridge Journalism fellows named
today are:

. @ Madeleine Bunting, columnist and associate editor,
The Guardian

¢ Tom Heneghan, Religion editor, Reuters ,

e John Kelleher, freelance documentary producer and
scriptwriter

e Jane Little, Religious Affairs correspondent, BBC
World Service

° Jeffrey O'Brien, senior editor, Wired magazine

e Eric Ormsby, freelance journalist and author

“e Steven Paulson, executive producer, National Public

..Radio..

¢ Michael Powell, New York bureau chief, Washington
Post

¢. William Saletan, national correspondent, Slate online
magazine —

e Rob Stein, national science reporter, Washington Post

e Jay Tolson, senior writer, U.S. News & World Report

e Kristal Brent Zook, freelance author, journalist, and
broadcast commentator ;

The relationship of science and religion 1 is a subject of ©
increasing scrutiny today. After centuries during which
leading voices from science and religion viewed each other
with suspicion and little sense of how the two areas might
relate, recent years have brought an active pursuit of
‘understanding how science may deepen theological aware-
ness, for example, or how religious traditions might illumi-
nate the scientific realm.

Fellowship organisers note that rigorous journalistic,
examination of the area where science and theology over-
lap-as well as understanding the reasoning of many who
assert the two disciplines are distinct and without common
ground-can effectively promote a deeper understanding of
this emerging dialogue.

That discussion will be furthered, organisers say, by
encouraging journalists to write articles and produce news
segments that advance public awareness of this complex
and rapidly evolving area of inquiry. The extraordinary
intellectual and cultural setting at Cambridge, they add,
will provide recipients with an opportunity to meet with
colleagues for critical discussion and have access to promi-
nent experts in the field.

“Science, religion, and the bridge between them is one
of the most important stories of our age," says Templeton-
Cambridge Fellowships Co-director Fraser Watts, Reader
in Theology and Science,
University of Cambridge.

Archer, who officially




































donations from members of
the church and friends in the
community.

Clad Tidings Christian
Academy was established out
of a need to assist parents in
the community with first class
affordable preschool child-
care. As the school is an
extension of the church, chil-
dren will be exposed to Chris-
tian principles as they learn
about their immediate and
distant environment, devel-
op various skills and grow in
the fear and admonition of
the Lord. The school’s motto
“Teaching, Training and
Transforming” is the focus of
all endeavors. As teachers
pursue excellence in the per-
formance of their daily tasks
our constant prayer at the
school is “(Lord) establish
the work of our hands”

(Psalm 90:17)

Loyola Hall, Gladstone Road. They will delve into the scripture
text of John 21 with particular emphasis on Christ’s directives to
Peter to “Feed my Lamb”, “Tend my Sheep”, “Feed my Lamb”
and “Follow Me”. ;

“Come Closer” is the theme for this year’s mission and the
dynamics of this gathering will take on a new. approach never
before exhibited. There will actually be two missions taking
place concurrently in the one location.

. While the adults gather in Loyola Hall, the young people will
assemble under the big tent, in “da yard”, to reflect on and
address this theme in a format that is specifically designed for
them,

Announces Its:

Annual

eatured speakers for the adult mission are Father Glen
eed my Lamb” - Catechesis), Monsignor Simeon
end.my Sheep” - Pastoral Care), Father Kendrick
“Forbes (“Feed my Lamb” - The Eucharist) and Father David
s@ooper (“Follow Me” - Approach to the Faith).
The youth will address topics relevant to them in an interactive —
vand exciting format by giving their input and portraying their
talents, using multi-media, skits, dance and music.

On the final night, Friday, March 10, the entire assembly will
gather in a Eucharistic Celebration led by Archbishop Patrick Pin-
der who will outline his vision and pastoral plans for the local
church. This promises to be a dynamic time of prayer, reflec-
tion, teaching, renewal and further commissioning as the church
continues to define itself under Archbishop Pinder’s direction.

All are invited and encouraged to gather with us and “Come
Closer”.



we need to lead holy lives.
Compassion is not learned

FROM page 1C

' gressed and I was telling her

_ happy to learn.



Jesus was wholly human, but
that doesn’t mean that He was
merely human. The fact that
He was “without sin” did not
imply lack of humaneness. Sin
is not an intrinsic ingredient of
humanity. Quite the contrary.
Sin is a fall from humanity. But
otherwise He shared our weak-
nesses and our temptations,
despite His divinity.

Because He Himself has

been through temptation, Jesus
understands us and is able to
help us when we are being
tempted. Hence, we can
approach Him with confidence,
knowing that we will have mer-
cy from Him and find grace in
our time of need. He fills us
with the love and compassion

without suffering. Unless we
have suffered we don’t really
understand what compassion
is, nor can we comfort some-
one who is suffering. Unless we
have cried we can’t dry the
tears of others who weep.
Unless we have walked in
darkness we can’t help wan-
derers to find their way. When
we have suffered we can
become compassionate
pathfinders for others.

Message

That is my message to you
on this first Sunday in Lent.
Expect to meet up with sin and
be ready to resist. Remember
the words of Scripture: “Resist

‘Than
God for
mama’

@ By ALLISON MILLER

YOU know what I love
about God, He gives you what
you need.when you need it.

I come from a family whose
roots started on the island of
Eleuthera, in the settlement of
Hatchet Bay. My mother still
lives there and from time to
time my mother will come to
Nassau for a visit, however, she.

“loves Eleuthera and as some-

one once said, "Home is where’
the heart is." So I guess you
can say Eleuthera is home for
her. Whenever her visit to Nas-
sau is unexpectedly long, with-
out her saying a word I know
she misses home. For. us Nas-
suvians, Eleuthera is a peaceful
‘getaway from the chaos in the

city, but for her it’s home.

Last Sunday morning my
mother called me because I for-
got to return a phone call.to
her the night before. We were
just catching up. She was think-

_ ing of me and so she gave me a

call. As our-conversation pro-.



about a project that I had
recently worked on, she fe




that iv 7A i
turned out successfully and’
was deeply touched and
encouraged by her response.

My mother told me, "You.
are special and it does not mat-
ter what you’ve been through
or are going through. It is only
a stepping stone for where God
is taking you." My eyes filled
with tears as I listened atten-
tively to my mother on the oth-
er end of the telephone. Those
words were like a mason build-
ing a foundation. She didn't
know that tears had gotten the

_ better of me. I nodded; as if

she could see that I agrééd with
her much needed reminder. |

_ Our conversation echoed in my

mindtheentireday.
What amazes me’ is:-éven!
when you are in an uncertain!
disposition: God. has, EHS way |
of getting a message across to:

« you. It reassurés me,’ knowing:

that God loves me no matter’
what. I am indeed grateful for:
His abundant and unlimited:

love. Yes, Jesus dying on the.

cross should be. enough, how-.
ever, in our individual rela-
tionships with Him, He goes’
the extra mile.

God could not have used a:
better person than my mother,
to get a much appreciated mes- '
sage across to me and I will:
always love her for that. What

~ if she had ignored her thoughts

and hadn’t called? I would
have been in a place that would
not have benefited me or any-
one else, for that matter. I
thank God that both He and I
mean a great to her.

Thank you mom for your
reminder, I needed that.

Love always, '

Allison

‘Jesus can help us overcome temptation’

the devil and He will flee from
you; draw near to God and he
will draw near to you!”
Remember, the devil does-
n’t appear as a repulsive char-
acter. He appears as an attrac-
tive, ingratiating, charming
character, even as a friend. He
appears to have your best inter-
est at heart, as when He
offered Jesus bread and all the
kingdoms of the world. We
need wisdom and strength to
be able to resist temptations,
especially those that come
under the guise of good. Be
careful, and do not fall for the
glitter of sin and miss the right-
eousness of God. 4
Lent is a good timeticbegih
to reform our lives so that we
might walk closer with God.
Have a holy and blessed Lent.

THURSDAY, MARCH 2, 2006, PAGE 3C





@ By REV ANGELA
BOSFIELD
PALACIOUS:

MODERN culture tells us
that more has to be better,
whereas Lent reminds us that
less can be best. Fewer meals
aid spiritual concentration,
fewer television hours leave
room for more spiritual read-
ing, and less noise and more
silence makes room for God
to speak more clearly.

When last have you felt bet-
ter when you had less of some-
thing?

A few years ago, I decided to
downsize my possessions.
Friends were offered first
choice and the rest were to be
given to strangers. Every day I
passed on a box or two of trea-
sures for someone else to the
social worker employed at St
Matthew’s church. A few
objects were placed neatly on
the ground or on the rectory
wall, in the vicinity of the
garbage receptacles, for those
who sort through trash as they
walk along the street, to col-
lect more easily. Do you allow
others to benefit from your
accumulated blessing?

‘The more I sorted the more
I found my mother’s treasures
and decided to use them more
regularly. Her wedding set of
silverware tarnishes easily but
it is the set we use each day,
keeping fresh my childhood
memories of celebration and
gracious hospitality. Crystal
candy bowls from our wedding
are in plain view with no con;

It’s A New Season .

SUPERNATURAL”

By: Pastor Kenneth H.B. Adderley

Read: Joshua 1:1-4; Joshua 1:11

My brothers and sisters, we are so caught up in the carnal, natural stuff;
we forget that God wants to take us into the Supernatural. We are so
caught up in pleasing ourselves, pleasing people, not hurting feelings that
we miss God. The Church is wrestling with petty stuff, small things,
relationships and God has Supernatural things on the other side.

What is stopping you from crossing over Jordan today?

-{. ISIT THE EGYPT IN YOUR LIFE?

This is the things you are holding on to, that you need to let go of. This
is the bondage controlled areas of your life. What are they?

Your Egypt might be:

Past failures, past success, rejection, pain, past season, witchcraft, fear,
change, generation curses, comfort zone, your weakness.

My brothers and sisters, Egypt needs to be leftbehind.

Exodus 1:7-8, Exodus 14:3-15, Exodus 14: ‘31.

2. IS IT THE WILDERNESS IN YOUR LIFE?

This is the area in our life when we question everything, everyone, why
this, why that, How come this happen? We must begin to deal with not

having

much, not understanding, not seeing, not believing, not knowing,
complaining, rebelliousness, not follewing instructions. Numbers 11,

Numbers 14:1-4

The Wilderness needs to be a place of faith, not doubt and unbelief, a
place where understanding must come. Numbers 13:27

3. IS IT JORDAN IN YOUR LIFE?

This is your flesh, carnal nature. Jordan is what is stopping you from
crossing over. Is it your attitude, ego, pride, stubbornness, selfness,
jealousy, envy, unforgiveness. Jordan can easily become an Egypt in your
life. Jordan will stop you from seeing, experiencing the supernatural things
of God. Relationships needs to be right, Attitude needs to be right.

Jordan sees only now but the supernatural creates tomorrow today.
The supernatural is your Canaan, your Promise Land, Your Due Season,
Your Miracle, and your Breakthrough. The fourth Dimension is where ff
things are created, dreams, visions are seen. It is where Gods shows up

Romans 8:11; Mark 11; Mark 16:14

that life has to offer each day.
Are you using your material
and spiritual gifts to show grat-
itude for what you have
received?

Clothes closets were next on

my list and what was kept now —

became my choice on just
about any day. Extravagant as
God’s energy, as lavish as
God’s love, as free as God’s
forgiveness, I am trying to real-

- ly live abundantly more and

more each day. What does the
abundant life that Jesus Christ
promised us look and feel like?
Are you living it or seeking it?

What joy it is to appreciate
each moment and each bless-
ing that the moment brings. I
truly took out of my store-
house things old and new. No
building of bigger barns, it was
time to break down the barri-
ers and let the secured become
the sampled: No holding back.
Do you need to examine your
storehouse of memories or
anything else that limits your
spiritual freedom?

My sorting began with boxes
that needed to be unpacked,
but it became a metaphor for
life. It is as if we are to con-
tinue as the years go-by to
“think out of the box” in every
aspect of our boxed-in exis-
tence, more open to life and

more open to living, more able ©

to love and more intent on giv-
ing.

This Lent, let us trust God’s
transforming process more and
more. The task is to not stop
but keep going in each room of
our souls, and sort out what to
relinquish and what to retain.
The best of who we are may
be waiting to be unpacked.

‘Limiting God to
spiritual settings’

@ By SHANNON DEAN

MANY Christians are guilty of limiting
God to spiritual settings only.

God has become a “jack in the box” for
many of us, one that we allow to pop out
only in religious settings. We have allowed the
world to silence our voices because they claim
it’s not ‘politically correct’ to allow God to be
mentioned in certain settings. So we our-
selves have adopted the same idea in our
everyday lives by pulling Him out only when
we attend church. Because of the world’s
concepts, we have rendered Him powerless to
all other aspects of our lives and now, we’re
suffering greatly for it.

We have created a life filled with stress
and turmoil just like the world; all because we
have adopted their way of life. Even though
we see the results of their life styles everyday,
we are still content to follow their pattern. We
are embarrassed to claim the promises of
God and to confirm our total trust in Him
when we are in certain settings for fear of
being looked upon as extreme or stupid.

Does the world ever compromise their
beliefs or solutions to their problems? They
are not afraid to speak up for what they
believe without fear of being criticised. So
why are we?

We are stifled by the mere thought of
offending someone because of our faith in
God, to the extent that we only talk about
Him in private.

‘He can’t be the solution to the problems i in
my marriage, finances, children, health, habits
and fears. God forbid that I would ever allow

“others to even think that I have surrendered

these problems to Him knowing that He is
well able to fix them, and never must [ tell
others that their problem is absolutely no
problem for God’.

Afraid

We must not be afraid of the fact that we
will be ostracised because of our faith in God,
nor are we to be intimidated by nay sayers.
For Jesus Himself was threatened and even
told that He had demons because of his faith,
his compassion and His belief in God, so
should we expect anything less?

Are we going to allow ‘the world to rob us
of our peace while they themselves live in
torment every day of their lives? Will we con-

tinue to sit on the back row with our mouths
pinned shut with the truth while they sit on
the front lines with their mouths wide open
with lies? Will we continue to follow their
rules and end up with adverse results or are
we going to follow God’s rules and get the
right results every time? Are we willing to let
God be true and every man a liar?

Let us. stand on the truth of God. There is
no way we can lose trusting in the word of
God which He honours above His own name.
We must take our results out of the hand of
man and stop allowing our faith to be limited
by their. doubt. For even if they laugh and
throw scorn at us when we declare our faith it

. will never stop the hand of God from doing

what He declared He will do.

Death

When Lazarus was sick unto death, I’m
certain they laughed at Mary and Martha for
even suggesting that Jesus be called: Even
worse, he died and Jesus still hadn’t shown up,
thus leaving room for even greater scorn and
more laughter and not to mention embar-
rassment on the part of Mary and Martha.

But Jesus had already been summoned to
the matter and had thus declared that
Lazarus’ sickness was not unto death, but it
was for the Glory of God. Little did the nay
sayers know that as soon as Mary and Martha
expressed their faith by believing that if Jesus
were there, Lazarus would not have died, it
then became a “God Matter”. Hallelujah!

You see, when we declare God’s word over
a situation, the matter then becomes one of
priority. When we bring Him in on the situa-
tion, it’s no longer about us; He literally backs
us on the side and declares that He’ll take
over from there. You are no longer the one
facing the doubters but He is. For once you
have declared His word; He is now obligated
to get the glory out of the entire situation.

So:no matter the setting, don’t ever be
afraid to declare your trust in God. This is lit-
erally your way of drawing others: to. Him;
this is your way of cracking the door open so
He can kick it all the way down. For He has
declared that his word is alive, powerful, and
sharp and cannot return to Him void; so you
declare a good thing today and it shall ‘be
established.

1 Jesus’ parable of the prodigal son [Wedding Feast symbolism] included
| a signet ring, “The Father said to his servants, bring forth the best
robe, and put it on him; and put a ring on his hand, and shoes.on his
feet: Bring hither the fatted calf, and kill it; and let us eat, and be merry:
| For this my son was dead, and is.alive again; he was lost, and:is found.”

In God's design of events, it was revealed to Abraham; that God would
take the emerging nation into the land of the Egyptians, to forge them
into the nation they were destined to become. In hindsight;.we see that
Joseph was chosen to be God’s Instrument to accomplish this act.
God brought Joseph into the presence of Pharaoh through God's obvious
involvement in a series of events. Pa ays Le ag
Scripture records, “Pharaoh took his signet ring off his hand. and put
} it on Joseph’s hand; and he clothed him in garments of fine linen and
‘ put a gold chain around his neck. He had him ride in the second chariot
which he -had; and they cried out before him, bow the knee! So he set
him over all the land of Egypt. Pharaoh also said to Joseph, | am Pharaoh, °
| and without your consent no man may lift his hand or foot in all
1 the land.of Egypt.” :





-Finaily, Esther 3:11 contains another symbolic message. of God's deliverance, “The. king took his

ring from his hand, and gave it to Haman the son of Hammedatha the Agagite, the Jews’ enemy; .
} and the king said unto Haman, the silver is given to you, the people also, to do with them as

i: it seems good to you.” However, God’s deliverance through a series of events reversed the.
; situation at Chapter 8 verse 2, “The king took off his ring, which he had taken from Haman, and

: gave it to Mordecai [a Jew].” Me Bhatt 3

Judah married the daughter of Shua; who bore him three sons, Er, Onan, and Shelah. Er in turn
married a Canaanite woman named Tamar, but died because of an unspecified wickedness. He
could not know that as firstborn; his lineage was destined to produce the Messiah, requiring his
integrity and. character to remain innocent at the least. Onan refused to impregnate Tamar, spilling
nis seed [sperm] on the ground, and suffered a similar fate as his brother Er for his wicked intent.
Judah considered the woman ‘unlucky,’ having lost two husbands to untimely deaths, and decided
io withhold his youngest son Shelah from her. ee =

amar dressed herself as a harlot; engaged in illicit sexual relations with Judah, for the price ofa
: goat (the symbol of deception], using the tokens of his signet, cord, and staff as pledges. Three
months later, the pregnant, unmarried Tamar, was accused of playing a harlot, and harshly sentenced
“3 death by Judah. ;



| Walter C. Wright describes the scene vividly: The companions of Judah bring him word that his
* daughter in law, Tamar has played the harlot. His judgment is quick and decisive: Let her be burned.
: ‘There is neither hesitation nor compromise. As he utters this fearful sentence, we cannot detect
i even a tremor in his voice. The Israelitish society must be preserved from such folly and wickedness.
’ The word goes out; the day is fixed; the preparations go forward; the stake is planted; the pile is
arranged; the procession forms; the crowd gathers; the woman walks to her apparent doom. But
she bears in her hands the tokens; the pledges are with her; she carries the staff of Judah, and
ihe ring is his ring! The pledges become the accusation of her judge. What weight will his sentence
‘ave now?”





Scripture informs. us, “Judah acknowledged them and said, she has been more righteous than |,
| because | did not give her to Shelah my son: and he never knew her again.” Perez [Breakthrough],
} :he firstborn son of that union went on to become the one through whose lineage the Messiah

came,

ie magnitude of God’s obvious involvement in this female’s ability to plan, and skilfully execute
. series of events; designed to fulfil the woman’s desire to bear a male child; to openly confront
:h, the patriarch of the clan, and shamefully reveal his hidden secret of illicit sexual relations

its har; then cause him to repent of his own deceitful actions of withholding his son Shelah from
her, is absolutely amazing.





Ve t.esten to mention that from this tangle of utter darkness, God brought forth Jesus Christ, the
‘Light of the World.’ Griffith Thomas provided this commentary, “It is simply astonishing that God







ists selected for this fellow-
ship are uniquely suited to
investigate, scrutinize, and,
ultimately, report on this
modern phenomenon." |

-and to bring healing to the thousands of sick in

our land.

As we enter the festive season of Lent, we
must seek to bring comfort, not only to our fam-
ilies, but the wider Bahamian society. We need-
ed a Saviour, hence the coming of Jesus Christ.
Let us live out our Lenten mission with hope,
that soon the Joys of the resurrection will be a
marvelous day, if we only but put our trust in the

man from Galilee.

On Ash Wednesday, for many it has become
a ritual and some people actually think it’s cute, .
to have ashes on their foreheads during the day.
They walk around with their chests stinking out,
in an effort for their friends and co-workers to
recognise them as Holy People. Regardless of

Time For § Sp



Union rejects
‘slap in the face’
proposal from
sovernment

& By NATARIO MCKENZIE.

SOME 1000 New Providence
public school teachers took to
Parliament Square yesterday in
a spirited protest rejecting gov-
ernment’s counter-proposal to
their salary demands.

On January 12 the executive
committee of the Bahamas
Union of Teachers presented a
proposal to government’s con-
sultants and.on February 21 the

consultants presented a counter- .

proposal to the union. Teach-
ers yesterday rejected the
counter-proposal calling it an
insult and an outright “slap in
the face”.

Bahamas Union of Teachers
President Ida Poitier-Turnquest
said the purpose of yesterday’s
demonstration was to send the
message to government that
teachers wanted their just com-
pensation.

“We are just tired of people
treating us like slaves in our
country, we have more qualifi-
cations than police officers and
more qualifications than our
politicians and their salaries are
high, they stay in air-condi-
tioned offices, but we have to
work in deplorable conditions,”
Mrs Turnquest said yesterday.
“We as: educators in the

Bahamas will no longer put up
with the ill treatment that the
government puts on us. We are
hard-working people we have
to do roles that are not teaching

roles and we think it’s time that
we are not only compensated
for what we do, but also looked
at as professionals,” Mrs Turn-
quest added.

The BUT’s protest began
sometime after 9 o’clock yes-
terday morning. Traffic
attempting to head east on Bay
Street had to be cut off on Par-
liament Street as the large
crowd moved from Parliament
Square and filled the street,
remaining there for nearly half
an hour. BUT president Ida
Poitier-Turnquest was among
those sitting in a large circle in
the centre of the street urging
the crowd into chants of: “We
shall overcome,” “everybody
ought to know who teachers
are” and “give me money in my
pocket, keep me working.”

Some protesters wore BUT
tee-shirts while others wore tee-
shirts with the inscription:
“Quality teachers, quality edu-
cation.” There were signs that
read, “dollars for some, cents
for teachers

$125 for 8.30 to 5.00 Hell
No!, “Educated dedicated but
not fully compensated.”

‘The BUT president said she
did not believe that teachers

were being irresponsible by -

blocking Bay Street.

“The public is in total sup-
port of the teachers they realize
that the teachers have been
shortchanged and they are with
us 100 per cent”, she stated.

At about 10 am a truck with

into Parliament Square to again
watch as ministers entered the

seeking an audience with Edu-
cation Minister Alfred Sears
and Prime Minister Perry
Christie. Many in the crowd
loudly voiced their disapproval

Bahamas ‘will
not favour
Cubans over
Haitians’

@ By KARIN HERIG
Tribune Staff Reporter

THE BAHAMAS will not

’ bow down to policies which

would favour Cuban nationals
over Haitians, Prime Minister
Perry Christie said yesterday in
the House of Assembly

Addressing the situation of
the two Cuban dentists who
have been held at the
Carmichael Detention Centre
for the past ten months, Mr
Christie in an impassioned
speech said he has come to the
conclusion that the Bahamas
has allowed itself to be manoeu-
vred into a position where
Cuban migrants receive prefer-
ential treatment over Haitians.

The prime minister said that
if Cubans have the opportunity
to be interviewed in order to
determine if they meet the cri-
teria of political refugees before
being deported, then Haitian
migrants should be given the
same treatment.

Speaking last night in parlia-
ment, the prime minister said

FNM leader accuses PLP of being
‘laissez faire’ on environment





CCLSO





FNM leader Hubert Ingra-
ham has attacked the govern-

between its “espoused environ-
mental consciousness” and its
“laissez faire attitude” to envi-
ronmental matters.

He said the opposition
remains concerned that the lev-
el of commitment by the gov-
ernment to environmental pro-
tection, enhancement and con-
servation is weak.

and inaction have permitted,
indeed, aided and abetted envi-
ronmental degradation around
the country,” he said.

Mr Ingraham said that, in the
Speech from the Throne, just
two sentences were dedicated
to the environment.and the
need to safeguard ground-water
reserves appeared nowhere on
the government’s agenda.

parliament hope that when the
government sits down to really
consider its environmental and
recreational programmes for
the country they will seek to
continue the development of
open green spaces, recreational
facilities and windows to the sea
initiated under the FNM gov-
ernment,” he said. __

The FNM leader said the
government had also ignored
the impact of natural disasters,
which were closely connected
to environment matters.

“We in the Bahamas are
aware, because of our own
experience, especially over the
past decade, of the critical need
to address inadequacies in
national disaster preparedness,
response and relief pro-
grammes.

“Tf that were not sufficient,
we need only take note of the
reports emanating from our big
and, wealthy neighbour to the
north concerning that govern-
ment’s inadequate preparedness

_for, and slow response to, the

aftermath of Hurricane Katri-
na,” he said.
The former prime minister

‘said that more important, per-

haps, are lessons which ought
to have been taken from the
consequences of years of “envi-

-ronmentally unfriendly devel-

opment along vulnerable coast-
lines — developments which, for
example, destroy or significant-

‘after “blowing the whistle” on

an alleged immigration racket.

He said he has been told he
will get no more visas for Hait-
ian crewmen on his.three freight
boats.

As a result, he claims he is
now out of business and barely
able to scratch a living for his
family.

“I am being victimised for
telling the truth,” he told The
Tribune yesterday.

Mr Bain, who owns three ves-
sels which used to run cargo
between Nassau and Haiti,
caused a storm a few weeks ago
when he alleged that visas were
being supplied illegally to Hait-
ian “mules” for $1,000 a time.

He alleged that human traf-
fickers were collecting up to 40

visas at a time from Norfolk .

House while he — a legitimate
Bahamian boat owner — could
not get visas through normal
procedures.

Mr Bain said his boats had
been idle since last year when
he refused to take part in a visa
scam which would have
involved him paying well over
the odds to employ Haitian
crewmen. ;

The Ministry of Foreign
Affairs has said the visa scam
claims .are being investigated.
But so far no report has been
forthcoming.

“Prime Minister Perry
Christie is MP in my area, so
what is he going to do about
it?” Mr Bain asked yesterday.

“T have been told by the
police that I can’t go to the visa
department anymore. They
have barred me.

“Yet I can prove everything I
am saying because I have a tape

He said: “We in the minority
party in parliament are not sat-
isfied, and nothing in the
speech convinces us otherwise,
that this government has con-
nected the dots between its
espoused environmental con-
sciousness and its actual man-
agement of the environment,”
said Mr Ingraham.

As Mr Bain threw out the

refused. zs
“Nothing has changed. The
‘mules’ were here yesterday and’
today.
“The PM has shuffled his

Cabinet but he has been shuf-

mules are still walking away
with stamped passports every
day,” it was alleged.

It was also alleged that the
90-day visas are handed by traf-

’ fickers to incoming Haitians,

who then become absorbed into .
local Haitian communities.

Mr Bain and others com-
plaining about the alleged rack-
et say it is not only undermining .
the country economically, but
also posing major security risks.

“These visas are being
stamped without any checks
being made on the people com-
ing in,” said the Norfolk House
source. “In this day and age,
this is a very serious matter.”

Minister: Govt will not stop until
every illegal immigrant captured

@ By KARIN HERIG
Tribune Staff Reporter

ALL illegal immigrants desig-
nated for repatriation will be fin-
gerprinted before leaving the
Bahamas, it was revealed yes-
terday.

The intention is to establish
records for returning and crimi-
nal illegal immigrants, newly-
appointed Minister of Labour,
Immigration and Training Shane
Gibson announced.

This fingerprinting initiative is
only one of several:new pro-
grammes to be introduced to
tackle the Bahamas’ problem of
illegal immigration. ©

Addressing the House of
Assembly, Mr Gibson said his
ministry will also no longer

" accept applications for work per-

mits from people already living
in the Bahamas and will closely
scrutinise all applications of per-
mits to reside.
The minister took the oppor-
tunity to send out a call to all
illegal immigrants to voluntari-
ly leave the country and to
Bahamians who employ illegals
o “get rid of them” now.
He said the government will
not stop until it has captured
“every single” illegal immigrant.

. As it concerns the introduc- ©

tion of fingerprinting, Mr Gib-
son said once immigration offi-

i cials determine that a person will
“'bé deported, fingerprints will be

taken from that person, “in the

hands in

| resignation

ANGLICAN Archbish-
op Drexel Gomez con-
firmed yesterday that he
has réceived a resignation
letter from Archdeacon
Ranfurly Brown.

Archbishop Gomez,
who is conducting a mis-

context of the law, the constitu-
tion and on the advice of the
Attorney General’s Office.”

“That’s important for a num-
ber of reasons. First of all we
have the same illegals coming to
the Bahamas over and over
again.

“They leave on one boat and
come back on the next. They
leave with one name and they
come back on the next name,”
he said.

Number

Mr Gibson also said that a
large number of illegal immi-
grants commit criminal offences
in the Bahamas.

“They commit a crime, we

deport them. We have no record’

of who they are, and then they
come back again and commit the
next crime,” he said.

The minister said there will be
changes in policy regarding the
application process of work per-
mits. Applicants living in the
country will no longer be granted
permits.

“We've decided that, effective
immediately, we will not be
entertaining any application of
any individual for the first time
who is residing in the Bahamas,”
he said.

Mr Gibson said that in too
many cases individuals come to
the Bahamas illegally and then
seek to legalise their stay in the

country.

From now on, he said, people
will have to apply for permits
from outside of the Bahamas.

A further major problem con-
cerned the granting of permits
to reside. ,

“You would have the individ-
ual coming legitimately on a
work permit as a housekeeper
or a gardener or whatever, and
they may have six or seven kids
outside of the Bahamas.

“And then they want to make
an application to reside and bring
all their kids in, who go to our
schools free and get health care
free,” he said.

Mr Gibson said these children
are placing a burden on the
country’s educational and health
care system.

The minister said the system is
also burdened by people apply-
ing for permits for farm labour-
ers, although they do not own or
operate a farming facility.

Mr Gibson said those attempt-
ing to obtain a work permit for

farm labourers will have to-pro-

duce documents proving they
own or are leasing a farm prop-
erty.

the Bahamas’ immigration policy
will also include giving immi-

What is Christie’s design?

A WELL-PLACED source commented
ioday that he felt it highly unlikely that Fidel
«astro, who now wants to be seen as a friend
and leader in thé Caribbean, would take retal-
iatory action against the Bahamas should its
eovernment unite the two Cuban dentists, now
ii1 detention, with their families in the US.

This person believes that the threat of
Cuban retaliation is an exaggerated fantasy of
a timid imagination — possibly encouraged
irom past experience with the Cuban govern-
ment. The argument goes that if Castro wants
io be seen as a friend, as a humanitarian, and
as a Caribbean leader, he — as did the United
States in the Elian Gonzalez case in 1999 —
will accept that it would be unnatural to sep-
arate a husband from his wife and children,
and a wife from her husband and child. And
that if he wants to change his public persona
from tyrant to benevolent leader then — even
though these imprisoned dentists are.consid-
ered “indispensable” to the.Cuban state —
he will understand that they are not chattels,
and free them. They are human beings with
free will, in control of their own destiny and
deserving of their freedom of choice. |

Therefore, armed with these democratic
ideas, he would put a lie to his critics who
accuse his government of human rights abus-
es, if he were to announce: “Let my people go
— free.them to the embrace of their families.
There is no obligation to return them to Cuba
— let them decide their own futures.”

After all how can anyone régard Cuba.as.an
ideal country when its people cannot move
freely? How can Bahamians accept the Cuban
way of life — or even consider Cuba as a
“friend” — when its citizens have to flee in
boats from what they describe as insupport-
able tyranny?

When Bahamians get fed up with their gov-
ernment, and their social environment, they
pack their bags, go to the airport, buy an air-
line ticket and fly off in search of greener pas-
tures. Not so the Cubans. Those with ambition
live a double life, pretending to accept the
edicts of their government by day, but at night-
fall conspiring in dark corners to escape the
tyranny. They board unseaworthy craft to
make the Gulf crossing to freedom. Some
make it; some don’t. This is no way for free
men to live — man was not created to be a
slave to any man or any government.

In the House of Assembly yesterday Prime
Minister Perry Christie said he had made a
decision in the case of the dentists. He did
not say what that decision was — whether
they were to go to the US or Cuba — but
judging from the tenor of his comments it
would seem that the plan is to return them to
Cuba. This,-of course, is only a guess — we still
have not mastered the art of double-speak.

He said preparations to deport the two
Cubans are underway and he will infofm the
public “in due course” of his decision.

Nor did Mr Ingraham show his hand,
except to tell the House:

“TI hope that the two Cuban dentists
presently detained at the Carmichael Road
Detention Centre would not have to wait until
this new legislation relating to refugees and
asylum claims is drafted, introduced, debated,
enacted by Parliament and entered into force
prior to having their cases addressed by this
government.

“J do not believe that the Government’s
hands are tied in this matter. The Govern-
ment does have a difficult decision to make
and it ought to make it based on existing laws,
relevant agreements in place and past practice.
The government must determine its options
and then act — act in the best interest of The
Bahamas.”

The existing agreement to which he
referred was negotiated by his government in
1995 to make certain that Cuba would accept
their nationals who had escaped for the Unit-
ed States, but much against their will — and
the Bahamas’ wishes — had washed up on
Bahamian shores.

In the execution of that agreement, the
FNM government sought the help of the UN
High Commission on Refugees, who exam-
ined the fleeing immigrants to determine

whether they were genuinely political refugees. _,
At first:it was only the Cubans:who were vet-,: |.

ted. The Haitians were later added. When the
numbers became too great, the UNHCR
trained Bahamians to do the vetting, and only
came in to review difficult cases. The final
decision was left to the Bahamas government.

Notwithstanding the agreement with Cuba,
the FNM government’s practice was that cer-
tain Cubans were not returned to Cuba.

Rather they were released to other countries. ©

Said Mrs Janet Bostwick, who as FNM For-

eign Affairs Minister negotiated the 1996 and —

1998 accords with Cuba: “Sovereignty is very
important, but you don’t close your eyes to
your position in the world. Pride is fine, but
you have to face reality and realise that you
have to interact with certain people more than
others.” And as Dame Eugenia Charles, the
late no-nonsense leader of Dominica used to
-say in her very practical way: Leaders must

always remember that in deciding the future of .

their people, sovereignty has its place, but it is

not something that can be put in the pot and |

boiled.

It is significant that during his almost 10
years in office Prime Minister Hubert Ingra-
ham never set foot on Cuban soil. He obvi-
ously knew on what side the Bahamas’ bread
was buttered. me

EDITOR, The Tribune

In a February 20th column
Andrew Allen - discussed
“Racism, The Nassau Institute
and Helen Klonaris.” It was his
appraisal of a February 4 Letter
to the Editor on “racism and
whiteness” by Helen Klonaris
and a subsequent critique by
the Nassau Institute. The latter
was characterized as being
“long winded” and failing to
recognize “the psychological
effects of a colonially imposed
value system.”

_ The thesis

For those who have not read
these articles, Helen Klonaris
stated that there is a “well
defined system of relationships
including educational curricu-
la, the legal system, Judeo
Christian church hierarchies and
the English language itself
whose effect is to suppress, con-
demn and ghettoize other cul-
tures.” Furthermore, she
accused white Bahamians in
general, and Brent Symonette
in particular, of an indifference

_ to African culture in this “age of .
racism.”

Mr Allen hailed Ms. Klonaris
for her honest, intelligent and
well thought-out contribution.

'. Yet he disagreed with it in‘an

important way; in a brief par-

f enthetical comment he dis-
, counted the “racism in the
. Bahamas is based on the per-

petuation of white economic
power” argument.
Instead he focused on the
psychological problems of
blacks dealing with a Christian
culture, He contended that

Blacks lost.contact with their.

historical origins when con-
fronted by Western European
culture whereas countries like
Japan and India did not.

What Mr. Allen did not clear-
ly say is that the cultures of

India, China and Japan were

“much further” developed at
the time of that confrontation
with the West than the cultures
of sub-Sahara Africa at the time
of their confrontation.
The critique

Furthermore, the Institute
provided a framework for
thinking about “race and white-
ness.”

It quoted Thomas Sowell’s |

history of slavery (Conquests

_. and Cultures: An International

History) and the critical role

‘that Great Britain played in the

elimination of large scale slave
trade both west and east from
Africa.

It went beyond this to discuss
the reasons for the unequal
development of the world. This

included a long reference to the,

significant work of Jared Dia-
mond (Guns, Germs and Steel:
The Fates of Human Societies).
Mr Allen never addressed
these points; instead he treated
the reader to a “long winded”
anti-Christian view of histori-
cal events. !
‘Non-European cultures

All non-Western European '

societies inevitably must face
the reality that Western Europe
and its British off-shoots domi-
nated economic and social
development of the world from
the 15th to the 21st century.
One can grasp this fact by
looking at the incidence of out-
standing human accomplish-
ments in the arts and sciences.
This task is addressed by
Charles Murray in Human

of Excellence in the Arts and
Sciences, 800 B.C. to 1950.
This is a massive study of
4,002 individuals essential to the
story of literature, music, art,
philosophy, science and tech-
nology that “ranked them
according to their eminence.”
The author went to great
lengths to eliminate a Eurocen-

tric bias by including invento- —

ries and appraisals of individuals
and events drawn from Arabic,
Chinese, Indian and Japanese
sources.

The bottom line of this work
is that the world’s really intense
levels of accomplishment did

not begin until a few centuries

ago and then “almost every-
thing came from Europe.” That
reality is a major problem for
the collective esteem of non-
Europeans even though there

Argument quoted

IN his attack on Mr Orjan Lindroth in the House of
Assembly, Mr Keod Smith MP cites my book, Blood and
Fire, in support of his suggestion that Mr Lindroth and his
father had Nazi connections.

There is nothing in my book that even hints at such a
thing. It’s true that Mr Axel Wenner-Gren — who employed

’ Mr Lindroth’s father, Arne — was widely suspected of hav-
ing Nazi links, but this was never proved conclusively, even
though he was friendly with the famous Krupp family and
others connected with the Nazi cause.

In fact, Mr Orjan Lindroth kindly allowed me to use his :
own views on the matter in Blood and Fire. These refuted
unequivocally any suggestion that Wenner-Gren was a Nazi
sympathiser and stated that he was firmly behind the Allied

imbalance is changing rapidly.
The problem

Not only this but the big
political and economic obsta-
cles to racial equality...the insti-
tutional obstacles...are a thing
of the past especially in the
Bahamas. Despite the evidence,
Helen Klonaris wants all to
know that white racism is not
dead even though black
Bahamians can now “over-
come.”

In looking at comparable
developments in the U.S. John
McWhorter (Losing the Race)
concludes that the U. S. Civil
Rights movement now defines
“blackness as that which resists
whiteness” and this creates an
“ideological sea of troubles.”

It encourages “the black
American from birth to fixate

‘upon the remnants of racism

and resolutely downplay all
signs of its demise” and “to con-
ceive of black people as an
unofficial sovereign entity, with-
in which the rules of others are
expected to follow.”

It encourages anti-intellectu-
alism that is rooted “in the.cul-
ture of poverty and disenfran-
chisement and now becomes a
culture-internal infection nur-
tured by a distrust of the for-
mer oppressor.”

Much of John McWhorter’s
observations are directly applic-
able to the Bahamas.

And...if one thinks about
it...one can rightly conclude.
that the Klonaris thesis should
not be hailed as an honest, intel-
ligent and well thought-out con-
tribution to a dialogue on cul-
ture. It is, in fact, a dangerous
diversion from dealing with
today’s problems in a rational
way for the benefit of all.

Protesting teachers:
Govt counter-proposal

2nd Place - Delphino Gilbert

is ‘a slap in the face’

HUNDREDS of teachers who
protested in Parliament Square yes-
terday called the government’s
counter-proposal to their salary
demands a “slap in the face” and “an
insult”.

However, Minister of Education
Alfred Sears reminded protesters that
negotiations were still underway.

Bahamas Union of Teachers presi-
dent Ida Poitier-Turnquest said pub-
lic school teachers: had not had a
salary increase since 2002.

“The government is offering a five-
year agreement but the union is only
seeking a three-year agreement,” she
said.

Union

According to Mrs Turnquest, the

?. union is firstly seeking an immediate

$4,000 lump sum retroactive to 2005
for each of its 3,500 teachers in the
bargaining unit.

She said the government proposal,

however, only offered:a $700 lump

sum.

According to Mrs Poitier-Turn-
quest, the BUT is also seeking the
addition of $3,600 to the base salary of

d teachers.

The union proposed that this

: amount be added to base salaries from

January 1 to June 30 of this year,

tem.

which ends the first year of the agree-
ment. The government’s proposal sug-
gests, however, that only $600 be
added to the base.

In year two of the agreement, which
runs from July 1, 2006-June 30, 2007,
the union is seeking the addition of

$4,800 to base salaries while the gov- _

ernment is offering only $600.

_,.Proposed

In year three of the BUT’s propos-
al, which runs from July 1 to June 30,
2008, the union is seeking an addi-
tional $3,600 to base salaries, but the
government has proposed that that
period be set aside for a compensation
study.

In 2008, the fourth year of the gov-
ernment’s proposal, the government is
offering the addition of $750 to base
salaries and concludes the agreement
in year five, which is 2009, with the
implementation of a high performance
evaluation Seem or a merit pay sys-

The proposal also seeks to extend
school hours from 8.30am to Spm and
shorten summer vacations for teachers
to three weeks in July and one in
August.

Of the three weeks, teachers would
be required to spend 20 hours in pro-

- fessional development.

profitability can go hand in hand

UNIVERSITY of the West Indies
lecturer Dr T Jennifer Edwards
explained to her Caribbean travel and
tourism class that sustainability and
profitability can go hand in hand.

To give students a better under-
standing, Sandals Royal Bahamian Spa
Resort and Offshore Island’s environ-
mental manager, Janelle Hutcheson,
in an in-depth presentation, acknowl-
edged that there are many benefits to
environmental management.

Among them she listed the signifi-
cance of preserving natural resources
for future generations and future visi-
tors.

“We have a beautiful country with a

number of precious resources but we -

must take care of it,”
Hutcheson.

Protecting

She noted that taking care is not
limited to removing trash from road-
ways and keeping areas clean, but also
protecting the environment.

According. to Sandals’ chairman,
Gordon Stewart, Sandals has commit-
ted itself to becoming the first envi-
ronmentally friendly hotel chain in the
Caribbean. This is one of the most
important projects ever undertaken
by a hotel chain in the region..

“We have recognised that the very
survival of our planet depends on us
making a concerted effort to protect
it,” he said.

explained Mrs

Mrs ‘Hutcheson ssininga: to UWI

students that since 1999 Sandals

Resorts International had implement-
ed environmental management pro-
grammes at all its properties.

Sandals has realised significant
financial savings since beginning this
initiative in water and energy con-
sumption alone.

“We treat our waste water, which is
then used for irrigation. Our water-
sports team members reinforce our
‘no touch’ policy to our guests at their
daily orientation before snorkelling
and diving trips.

“We use non-biodegradable pesti-
cides when treating our plants and
environmentally friendly fertilisers.”

Encourages

She further explained that team
members are encouraged to conserve
electricity and water in their respective

_work areas, as well as report leakage

to the engineering department for
immediate repair.

Professor Edwards said that, as a
graduate of the university, it was a
bonus to have Mrs Hutcheson return
as a guest presenter.

“These students are our future pro-
fessionals and it is important for them
to see how they can assist in protecting
the environment.

“Sandals is a role model for the
Caribbean and it is imperative that
students see that we can do business
and save the environment at the same
time.”

FREEPORT - Local Gov-

Minister V Alfred Gray has

? pledged to focus immediate

attention on his new. portfolio
of consumer affairs to ensure
the protection and welfare of

“T want you to know that we
are going to begin very swiftly
to bring focus to that of area of
my ministry because over the
years I have heard the cries of |

Wednesday while in Grand
Bahama.

He was very concerned
about price gouging during
hurricanes, and the lack of
adherence to consumer laws
by. suppliers of goods and ser-

‘vices in the country.

Mr Gray was in Freeport at
the openi ng of a two-day Local
,Government training work-
| Shop held at the Hilton Out-
ten Convention Centre.

He said that elected local
government officials, public
servants, and political leaders
have a responsibility and an
obligation to serve the Bahami-

i’ an people.

Mr Gray noted that the gen-
eral perception among -work-
ers in the public service is that

Marijuana seizures

Plan to bring
Bahamian retiree

associations under

one umbrella

EXECUTIVES in the
Association of Retired
Employees are seeking to
bring together all
Bahamian retiree associa-
tions under one umbrella.

With several plans still
on the drawing board, one
objective of the newly
formed Bahamas National
Congress for Retired Per-
sons (BNCRP) is to
encompass all retiree asso-
ciations in the Bahamas
under its umbrella con-
gress, officials said yester-
day.

Currently, the associa-
tion has some 40 members
and is seeking to enlist
more, President Leslie
Sweeting told The
Tribune.

He said the idea of an
association of retired
employees was formulated
before, but it was not until
July last year that the
association was actually
formed.

Executives said one of
the initiatives to be
pressed by the congress is
the promotion of a
National Occupational
Retirement Programme
for all employees in the
Bahamas.

The congress is also
seeking to promote the
portability of member
pensions - meaning that
employee pension rights
will follow them from
employer to employer.

The congress is also
seeking the appointment
of retirees to government
boards, committees and to
private sector boards as _
well as the establishment
of a credit union for
retirees and a private sec-
tor retirees association.

Affiliation with the
American Association of
Retired Persons is also
among the organisation’s —
goals. ;

Executives say the affili-
ation will allow for the
establishment of retire-
ment homes in the

Bahamas.

‘cocaine seizures

MARIJUANA seizures
doubled in 2005, while
cocaine seizures decreased. as
a result of previous years’
break up of the largest drug
trafficking organisation in the .
Bahamas, the US Interna-
tional Narcotics Control Strat-
egy Report said.

The report, released yes-
terday, said that it was found
that most of the cocaine flow
originates in Colombia and
arrives in the Bahamas by go-
fast boats or small aircraft
from Jamaica and Haiti.

During 2005, law enforce-
ment officials identified 41
suspicious go-fast type boats
in Bahamian waters. In addi-

tion, there were 16 drug .

smuggling aircraft detected
over Bahamian territory.
Small amounts of drugs were
found on individuals transit-
ing through the international
airports in Nassau and Grand
Bahama and the transatlantic
cruise ship ports.

In 2005 Bahamian law
enforcement officials identi-
fied shipments of drugs in

Haitian sloops, fishing boats,

small aircraft and pleasure
vessels. Sports fishing vessels
and pleasure craft transport
the cocaine from the Bahamas
to Florida, blending into the
legitimate vessel traffic that
moves daily between these
locations. _—_,

fishing vessels regtilarly trans-.

port between 1000:to 3000

According to the report, the ~

Bahamas still remained a

for the US from South Amer-

said, is not considered a sig-

‘nificant drug producer nor a

drug precursor chemicals. .

As of November 2005,.

During 2005, the DEU
seized 1.01 metric tons of
cocaine and 13 metric tons of
marijuana. (OPBAT seizures

The DEU arrested 1,382 per-
sons on drug-related offences
and seized drug-related assets,

‘including five boats and five

vehicles.

Cocaine seizures decreased
compared to 2004 levels. This
decrease is the result of the
continued vigilance and pre-
cise targeting actions by law
enforcement agencies and the

The report also noted that
no.senior official in the gov-

drug-related offences in 2005.

Five distractions

of pe

REMEMBER the first

time I walked into the -

House of Assembly as the
member of parliament-elect for

.the constituency of Fort Char-

lotte in March, 1997. |
I was excited, awed, opti-

mistic and proud. I tried to soak
’ up the history of the more than

200-year-old halls that I had
entered as well as the meaning
of the history I was making, as
the youngest élected parlia-
mentarian at thé time.

“The baby is in the house”
“was the chant of my faithful

supporters in Fort Charlotte, a
reference to the fact that my
political opposition often’ said
during the campaign that I was
a baby being sent to.do.a man’s
job. I also tried to come to
terms with the weight of the
awesome responsibility that was
then mine as.a representative
of the people.:

It was my tendency to take
seriously almost everything I

did, a tendency, my mother ©

oftén reminded ‘me, that I pos-
sessed from when I was a child.

’ Try as much as I did, howev-
er, it was a'struggle to focus con-
tinuously on the biggér picture,

for too often petty political play

threatened to distract me.
Petty political play; this is a
great danger in politics. There

are at least five of them that I

found most distracting and that
I see distracting many of the
office holders today, particular-
ly those on the government side.

DESPERATION FOR.
PERSONAL POLITICAL -
SURVIVAL

irst, there is the desper- -
ation of wanting to sur-—
vive personally in office. Most

politicians who achieve office
want to stay there, perhaps not
forever but certainly. until they
choose. to leave: 042.

The majority of vohticians
fear losing office.or being
unelected like boxers feared
Mike Tyson in his prime. Being
rejected by the electorate.is for

politicians akin to being caught |.
with your pants down; it isa
shame few believe they could "

survive.
_ This desperation to survive



Being rejected
bythe
electorate is
for politicians
akin to being |
caught with
your pants

‘down; itis a

shame few
believe they.
could survive.



politically drives many politi-

cians to behave in ways that
defy commonsense. Some say
what they. do not mean, even

‘tell outright lies. Others remain _
silent.where their speech is

absolutely required:
Yet others simply try to pan-

_ der to every special interést they

feel can guarantee their political

_ well-being, especially the
-monied interests.

In this survival mode, politi-
cians feél suffocated by and con-
strained to satisfy a multitude
of requests from constituents to
do all manner.of things, many
quite personal in nature and tru-

ly outside the responsibility of a -

political official.
~The attempt .to do so

. becomes dizzying and, rather

than be focused on those things
that répresent community
efforts, many politicians find
themselves distracted by petty
political play.

DESPERATION TO KEEP
THE PARTY IN POWER

econd, there is the des-
peration of wanting to
remain in power as a political
party. In our system of govern-
ment, individual politicians

come to discover very early that._

they matter less than the party;
put another way, they come to

know that, more often fie not,

“their party was. elected rather

than.them..

As.such, they recognise that -
_ the party.must forever be seen

as attractive td. the electorate
and whatever makes the party
look bad makes them less like-
ly to be-ré-élected.

This is why that famous
phrase “toe the party line”
comes into the fray. Listen to

many of the members of the.

government today and observe
how loyally they. adhere to cer-
tain party lines that we know
they do: not subscribe tO per-
sonally: . -

They hail PM Christie as a.

great leader when privately they

they praise, all they say: their

Where are those who thought

that we focused too much ‘on

those who insisted that a high ©

DISMISSING NEGATIVE
PRESS —

ourth, there is the ten-

dency to dismiss out-of-
hand negative press. Politicians
and political parties want to sur-
vive; they want to hold on to
office.

Any negative press is a threat
to doing so. Naturally then
there is a strong desire to
ignore, reject or outright dis-
miss any:such press. Listen to
government ministers respond
to any bad press; they charge
those carrying it with having an
agenda, with being. anti-gov-

ernment and.at times with being ©

anti-black.

Never mind that they have
no proper counter to the press
or that the press is carrying
views expressed by many peo-
ple in the nation; for politicians
in the survivalist mode, it is all a
conspiracy, one big plot to get
rid of them.

Even when they are told of a
tide of public opinion going
against them, they dismiss this

. alas a political 6 com-—
munity is the key,.so:many
politicians become distracted by ©

as “noise in the market place”.

Well, I remember the noise in
the market place during the
2002 general election; as it

. turned out, the noise was quite

reflective of the price of fish at

the time. The two might have
much in common today but dis-
tracted power holders might

.feél more inclined to dismiss
_ this fact.

PREOCCUPATION WITH

PUBLIC RELATIONS

ifth, there is a tendency
in the end to be preoc-
cupied with public relations

- rather than public service. Pub-

‘ lic rélations has its place but no-
--one should be fooled, it is not a
- substitute for public service.

Sometimes, public service
makes for poor public relations

for instance the matter of pub-

unpopular with the public but

. Seldom are political leaders

-in our nation prepared to sacri-'

service. They would much

‘rather do nothing and make

great hay about it in the press:
than. do something unpopular
and.try to explain to the public

why they must do so.

The present administration is
guilty of this on many scores.
In fact, when things go wrong, it
seems that the leadership of our
nation runs for cover, including

‘the prime minister.

‘Rather than address the
nation, silence reigns for.a long

‘time and heads are only poked

up when they believe the dust

breadth of our national inter-

ance.

We argue over who attend-
ed-the opening of parliament
rather than what was presented
at the opening. We juggle
around executive offices for
political expediency rather than

. for better government.

- We fly here and there to
make inflated announcements
about things we hope will hap-
pen while we ignore the press-
ing issues we know are happen-
ing. We benefit from the boun-
ties of foreign interests and call

them our achievements while
we do few of the things within
our power to advance our own
well-being. There is a better
way and I trust that we will find
it.

THE TRIBUNE



Teachers demonstrate

FROM page one

over the proposed work
hours and pay increases.

Vanda Moss, a teacher at
Donald Davis school
expressed her displeasure to
The Tribune.

“I am very disturbed that
the government has not seen
fit to honour our proposal.
We have tried our best and
it seems as if it has fallen
on deaf ears by the fact that
they want us to work from
8.30 to 5, they want to short-
en our summer vacation.”

Mrs Moss said the amount
’ of money being offered
showed that the Ministry
was trying to offer them “a
pittance” compared to what
some of the other govern-
ment agencies received. “It
is an absolute disgrace that
we have to come out here
and take such a stand when
they know good and well
that we are the nation
builders,” Mrs Moss said.

The crowd’s excitement
grew louder when Minister
Sears entered Parliament
Square and many began
chanting, “Pay me what you
owe me!”

Addressing an excited
crowd Minister Sears tried
to. explain that the negotia-
tion process was still under-
way, however many of his
words fell on deaf ears.

“We are in the process of
negotiating a collective bar-

gaining agreement, the laws

of the Bahamas impose an
obligation on the union as
well as the government.
“The law requires that both
sides negotiate in a reason-
able and constructive man-
ner,” Minister Sears said.

“What either side gets as a
proposal as well as a counter
proposal is only the begin-
ning. The union, along with
the government, will meet
on March 9 so that both
sides can reach an agree-
ment,” Mr Sears told the
crowd. However, many still
seemed discontented and a
large crowd moved to Par-
liament Street.

Those who remained in
Parliament Square spotted
the arrival of Prime Minister
Christie and surrounded him
as well.

The prime minister
expressed his disappoint-

ment at the way the protest. !

was carried out.

“IT am always concerned
that when we have to take
aggressive action that we are
relating it to school children
and their perception of what
they have to do to express
themselves. “I am concerned

. about the example that we
as leaders and teachers are
setting for our children.
“When you try to redefine
the way things are to be
done you must remember

that you are redefining them ;

for not just yourselves but
also the people who are
watching you.”

Deaths ‘not caused by bird flu’

FROM page one

caused the deaths of the birds,
but believe it could have been
from “many, many causes.”

Newly appointed Minister of
Agriculture Leslie Miller said:
“Atlantis had indicated that their
stock had made a downturn due
to the rumours on the interna-
tional market. Now remember
the Bahamas is a tourism centre
that attracts some 5 million visi-
tors here per year.

“Even a proposed outbreak or
rumour, the competition would
continue to put those rumours
out there so that tourists would
visit their shores instead of ours,”
he said.

Mr Miller said that luckily for
the Bahamas, the virus has not
reached the Bahamas.

“Luckily for us, God bless us,
no outbreak has taken place. The
Bahamas is safe and secure from
the disease that those birds carry.

“When one considers the dis-
tance that those birds have to
travel, from Europe, from Asia,
and from Africa, to arrive in the
Bahamas, if those birds were in
fact unhealthy, it would be unlike-
ly that they would have made that
distance,” he said.

Contradicting previous reports
that some 21 birds of three dif-
ferent species were found dead,
the ministry maintains that only
five flamingos were found dead.

However, Bahamas National
Trust officials maintain that more
than five birds have died, and pos-
sibly of the 21 deaths, only five
could not be explained.

NASSAU, BAHAMAS

RE: SENIOR ASSOCIATE/DATABASE ADMINISTRATOR



Dr Geoffrey Lunn of the Min-
istry of Agriculture was in Inagua
doing preliminary research on the
birds. However, due to the decom-
position of the remains, samples
could not be taken to analyze if
the HSN1 virus was present.

However a statement from the
ministry reads that if the deadly
HS5N1 virus was present, it would
have decimated the large flock
of flamingoes and other birds on
Inagua.

The statement reads: “It is to
be noted that other countries in
the region have had similar scares
recently and that mortality of
birds attributed to other causes
and not the deadly virus H5N1
which to date have been con-
firmed in Europe, Asia, and
Africa.”

Also lending his voice to the
matter, Prime Minister Perry
Christie said that the government
has made a very quick response,
“as it is now known to do”, will
continue to work towards con-
firming that the evidence found
today is “incontrovertibly cor-
rect.”

“Tt opines to me,” he said, “that
the birds were so clearly old that
they (the scientists) have not dis-
missed the theory that they
(flamingoes) have died of old age
and the elements there.

“That is something that the
Ministry of Tourism can now take
and communicate worldwide, but
we will continue to work towards
making absolutely certain that the
preliminary findings at the site
are incontrovertibly correct,” he
said.”

‘No preference for Cubans’

FROM page one

he has made the final decision
in the question as to whether
the two doctors should be repa-
triated to Cuba or released to
the Unites States.

He said preparations for the
deportation of the two Cubans
are underway and that he will
inform the public “in due
course” of the nature of his
decision in this matter.

During the House’s morning
session, Mr Christie said that
he has expressed “fundamental
objection” to US President
George Bush concerning the
current policy in dealing with
Cuban and Haitian migrants.

“J felt the Bahamas in its
approach has been careless,” he

:- said.

Referring to his meeting with
Florida Jeb Bush last week, Mr
Christie said: “As I told Gover-

: -nor Bush, this government of a

black country is discriminating
against Haitians in favour of
how we deal with Cuban nation-
als. J am refusing to do that. You
have a different policy in dealing
with Haitians than you do when
dealing with Cubans. -

“It’s happened in the US. I

told President Bush I am not

going to condone it,” he said.

Last week during the visit of
Governor Bush, Mr Christie
said that: Mr Bush left the
expectation on‘the table that
the Bahamas government
would “aggressively” address
the concern of continued deten-
tion of the two doctors.

The two doctors, David Gon-
zalez Mejias and Marialys
Darias Mesa, were caught 10
months ago in their attempt to
emigrate from Cuba by the way
of the “visa lottery” which is
held annually by the US.

Both have relatives living in
the US. Dr Marialys Darias
Mesa’s husband Ihovany Her-
nandez, an electrician, settled
in Cape Coral, Florida, where
he has a brother. He now has a
Green Card and is a permanent
resident of the United States.

Dr David Gonzalez Mejias’
wife, Dayami, and their two
children, Carlos, 14, and
Flavia,7, have settled in Tam-
pa, where they have friends.

According to reports, Cuban
président Fidel Castro would not
let them leave the country
because their medical training
made them too valuable to spare.

In the US, two Congressmen,
Ileana Ros-Lehtinen and Con-
nie Mack said they would be
lobbying for economic sanctions
against the Bahamas in Con-
gress if the dentists were not
sent to the US.

Last night, Mr Christie said:
“Just as we gave the Cubans the
opportunity to be tested by
United Nations agencies for
refugees,” said Mr Christie, the
Bahamas should apply the same
policy to Haitians. .

The prime minister said that
the Bahamas has entertained
the submissions of.Governor
Bush, as well as those of major
personalities, both elected and
non-elected in the US.

Hanna-Martin proposes ‘one airport’

FROM page one

During the House of Assem-
bly’s sitting yesterday, Mrs Han-
na-Martin said that her ministry
needs to sit down and speak
with the private owners of the
Stella Maris airport to see what
can be done in the-shortest pos-
sible time.

- “Tt?s a privately owned air-
port, it is not a government
--owned airport: The department
of the civil aviation is the regu-
latory oversight, we’re not
responsible for the mainte-
nance of that facility, the pri-

vate owners are. But, of course, ...

from a safety point of view we
are responsible, and when we
were told that it was not in a



safe condition we had to do
what had to be done, but we
are assessing.

“The amount, we’ve been
told, is.in the millions. We need
to sit down with the owners of
that airport to see what can. be
done in the shortest ‘possible
time. We are (looking) at where

an airport can be placed. A sin-’

gular airport, that is positioned
in a way that is fair to everyone
on the island. That would be an
international airport, but that’s a
more long term issue,” she said.
- However, she said that in the
short term the airport at Dead-

man’s Cay, will be equipped as a.

port of entry status.
. “I understand that one of the
problems is that with Bahama-

sair, people have to buy tickets
in advance. The problem is they
fear having to travel from Stel-
la Maris to Deadman’s Cay just
to buy a ticket,” she said.

As a result she said, her min-
istry is seeking to establish a
ticket office in Stella Maris.
However, she said, they have
not yet committed to a solution
on the lack of transportation
between the two airports.

“Deadman’s Cay will be
established as a port of entry,
international travel will be
established in Long Island and
we are doing all we can do to

, Minimise any disruption to the

tourism industry and also how it
impacts people, and the econo-
my generally,” she said.

Competition aims
to promote public’s
coastal awareness

THE Coastal Awareness
Committee of The Bahamas, a
group of stakeholders from the
private and public sectors
formed to heighten the public’s

awareness of the importance of .

preserving and protecting the
country’s coastline, has
launched the first of its nation-
al initiatives - poster and sci-
ence competitions.

The poster competition, enti-
tled Caring for Our Coast, is
open to all students in The
Bahamas aged eight and older.

Students may choose to high-
light the coastal eco-systems
and their importance to the
health and wealth of the nation.

They may also choose to
emphasise the threats and solu-
tions to these activities, or to
create an illustration that pro-
motes a healthy marine and
coastal environment.

The winning entries will be
reproduced as a Bahamas stamp
issue to create national aware-
ness of the importance of
coastal environments.

“The entire Bahamas is con-
sidered a coastal zone. The
health of our marine and coastal
environment has a direct impact
on the environmental, social
and economic well-being of
every Bahamian,” said Lynn
Gape of The Bahamas Nation-
al Trust and co-chair of the
Competition Committee for
Coastal Awareness. :

“During April, which is
Coastal Awareness Month in
the Bahamas, we are focusing
on how we impact our coastal

environment. The poster com-
petition invites students to share
their concerns and/or offer solu-
tions.”

The purpose of the second
competition, entitled Coastal

- Awareness Month Competition

2006, is to involve the youth of
the Bahamas in dialogue and
identify environmental chal-
lenges within their immédiate
surroundings and propose pos-
sible solutions to improve
and/or solve the problem.

The competition is open to
all students through their school
based science organisation. Stu-
dents will be allowed to enter as
individuals and/or groups rep-
resenting their individual
schools. Awards. will be given
to first, second and third place
winners in primary, secondary
and senior high schools.

“The competition is science
based and students will be
required to identify a problem
or, challenging issue in their
coastal environment using the
scientific method,” said Bever-
ly Taylor, science and technol-
ogy co-ordinator for the Min-
istry of Education and co-chair
of the Competition Committee
for Coastal Awareness.

“Tt is hoped that students will
be exposed to myriad skills,
opportunities and experiences
that will help develop and shape
their understanding of the
importance of science and tech-
nology in the further develop-
ment of an island nation.”

During April, which has been
officially declared “Coastal

‘ DISASTER managers and
planners from the public and
private sectors have begun work
on the development of an inte-
grated ‘institutional framework
that is-expected to support the
country’s National Relief Man-
agement Policy in the aftermath
of a disaster or emergency.
The. institutional framework
will outline the responsibilities

of allagencies involved in pro-.

viding, relief services in the
Bahamas following a disaster,
as a means of streamlining the
process into a coordinated
national strategy.

It will define the roles of pol-
icymakers, government min-
istries;.departments and agen-
cies. and non-governmental
organisations such. as the
Bahamas, Red Cross and the
Salvation. Army, in addition to

religious.organisations, civil:

The.:framework will detail

procedures for preparing and

maintaining inventories. of ser-

vices, systems and supplies; pro- .
cedures for. mobilising services -

Carl Smith, NEMA co-ordi-

Cabinet Office, said the estab-
lishment of an integrated
national strategy to detail the
roles of all agencies involved in
providing relief in The Bahamas
is part of the mandate set forth
in the Disaster Preparedness
and Response Act, 2006, enact-
ed by parliament in January.

Mr Smith said the Act pro-
vides for a more effective organ-
isation and mitigation of, pre-
paredness for, response to and
recovery from emergencies
and/or disasters.

He said hurricane activity, par-
ticular over the past two years

Smith said.

“At the end of the day, this
integrated strategy involving all
of the partners, will result in
better inter-agency cooperation
at the national, regional. and
international levels which will

also assist in avoiding duplica-

tion,” Mr. Smith said.

He said the Disaster Manage-
ment Act “is far beyond hurri-
canes or tropical storms” and
addresses contingencies for haz-
ards such as oil spills, flooding

_and any other number of human-—

made or natural disasters.

Mr Smith said his agency has
been “working very closely”
with the Caribbean Disaster
Emergency Response Agency
(CDERA) in developing a
model plan with regards to
strengthening the country’s
Relief Management Supplies
Policy.

The disaster managers and
planners who participated in the
consultations for the facilitation
of an integrated National Relief
Supplies Management Policy,
used CDERA’s Model Disas-
ter Relief Policy as a guide to
the further development of the
Bahamas’ integrated national
strategy, taking into account,
any geographic peculiarities that
may exist in the Bahamas.

“The process will also detail
what resources.are available at
the national, regional and inter-
national levels for each individ-
ual agency operating within the
Bahamas,” Mr. Smith added.

and stated. his enthusiasm to
work along with his new board
and the membership.

His stated aims for the society
were:
To provide: Emodonal, psy-
chological and: moral support
to patients and their families;

To serve as patient advocates
ensuring the availability of
appropriate, quality service at
an affordable cost;

To prevent the onset-of can-
cers by reducing individual risks
through our educational and
awareness activities; and

In the event a cancer cannot
be prevented, by making it pos-

sible to have it diagnosed and __ |

treated at its earliest stage, so as
to enhance patient survivability.

Tourism, farmers concerned over bird flu probe

@ By A FELICITY INGRAHAM
Tribune Business Reporter

BAHAMIAN tourism executives and
poultry producers yesterday said they

were concerned and watching with inter- .

est investigations into the deaths of sev-
eral birds in Inagua, given fears that the
incident may have resulted from avian
or bird flu.

David Lowe, general manager of Sun-
shine Farms, said he was closely moni-
toring developments in Inagua.

He said that if bird flu was found to be
behind the deaths there, the wild ring-
necked doves may have a lot to do with
the transmission of the disease to the
Bahamas.

From his personal experience, Mr
Lowe said these wild, protected birds
often visited the dump and other areas,
and then moved to areas where domes-
ticated or farmed animals feed.

He added that the aggressive birds

often run the chickens away from their
feed, and are known to even run dogs
away from their meals.

While speaking to Tribune Business,
Mr Lowe said he was watching several
whité egrets come into his farm.

' While his birds were in enclosed quar- :

ters, Mr Lowe said there was an area of
access that wild birds can penetrate and
sometimes interact with his chickens.

* Minister of Agriculture and Fisheries,

Leslie Miller, said that while bird farmers

* were watching the situation, he could not

express any “concerns or fears" for them
at such an early stage in the investiga-
tion.

Bahamas Poultry in Grand Bahama’

said it was certain that “we all have con-
cerns" about bird flu potentially entering
this part of the world.

The Ministry of Tourism’s bureau
chief, Edwin Lightbourne, said the Min-
istry was watching the situation “very

closely", and officials were in ‘constant

contact with officials from the Public
Health Department.

Mr Lightbourne said he was also aware
of the attention the situation was getting
in the US media, and the potential impact
this may have on, the tourism industry
through Americans being discouraged to
come here.

"However they, just like we are here,

_are just speculating," he said.

“There isn't much we can say at this
time until the investigations in Inagua
are complete."

The HSN1 bird flu strain has proved
deadly in the eastern hemisphere. Birds
often migrate to this country during the
colder seasons, which could further exac-
erbate the chances of bird flu coming to
these shores.

However, a ZNS news report reported
one official as saying that the birds could
have died due to the type of feed they
consumed. They were all found in one
feeding area.

Warning for Bahamas
over ‘implementing’
financial laws

li By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

THE US State Department yesterday again issued a thinly-
veiled warning that the Bahamas “must steadfastly and effec-
tively implement” reforms to its anti-money laundering regime,
zeroing.in on issues that kept this nation on the Financial Action
Task Force (FATF) monitoring list until recently.

The annual International Narcotics Control Strategy report
focused its criticism on the Bahamas’ responsiveness to interna-
tional requests for. assistance by foreign law enforcement and
regulatory authorities, and resources devoted to the police and
Attorney General’s Office to help them combat financial crime.

The US State Department’s report said: “The Bahamas should
provide adequate resources to its law enforcement and prosecu-
torial/judicial personnel to ensure
that investigations and prosecu-
tions are satisfactorily completed,

Two times each week, said Dr Rah-

plans for a new 300- cell maximum

Mayaguana Heads of

Agreement ‘next week’

FROM page 1C

bune Business yesterday.

Back in December, Mr
Peet’s predecessor, Allyson
Maynard-Gibson, told a group
of religious leaders that the
Heads of Agreement for the
multi-million dollar Mayagua-
na investment was expected to
be signed in January.

She said it would “transform
the economy of Mayaguana
and improve the standard of
living for residents of that
island".

Addressing the House of
Assembly yesterday, Mrs May-
nard-Gibson said that at pre-
sent, Mayaguana residents
were already building a rock
crushing plant to prepare for
massive construction, road

paving and other infrastructur- .

al work. »

She also alluded to the pro-
posal made by the Teachers
and Salaried Workers Cooper-
ative Credit Union, which is
seeking government permis-
sion to proceed with its own
development ion in Mayaguana
that will complement the I-
Group's plans.

"TI applaud them in their
endeavours - that's what I call

visionary leadership," said Mrs
Maynard- Gibson, adding that

proposals. like the credit
union's gives Bahamian more
opportunities for SmepOWeL:
ment.

Union

Speaking with Tribune Busi-
ness yesterday, a credit union
spokesman said he welcomed

- her remarks, and that although

its Board had not been able to
meet with the Ministry of
Financial Services and Invest-
ments yet, Mrs Maynard-Gib-
son did speak with them this
week.

"T Berieys the door is still

open for the credit union," said
the spokesman. "We will also
be sending a letter to the new
minister, seeking an early
meeting with him. We look for-
ward to discussing our propos-

‘also that the Bahamian people

can have the opportunity to
benefit from the initiatives that
the credit union is putting for-
ward, as well as the investment
from the I-Group."

Credit

He said the credit union was
hopeful that once the Heads of
Agreement with the I-Group

‘is signed, the Ministry would

focus attention on its proposal.
The union is proposing an

investment between $3 to $6

million, including affordable
homes for residents and shop-
ping plazas. A credit union
team traveled to Mayaguana
last month, and successfully
registered numerous Mayagua-
nians.

There are about 300 people

living on the island, whose

economy has been described
as "sleepy".

The development between
the I-Group and the Hotel
Corporation, which is a 50/50
partnership through the
Mayaguana . Development

- Company, will take the form

of a frée trade zone, according
to Mrs Maynard-Gibson.
She said that like Freeport,

the construction of a free port

zone in Mayaguana will take

20 to 25 years to be fully built

out.

The project's first phase’

includes the construction of a
25-unit boutique resort, a 10-
slip marina, and a low-density

300-lot residential subdivision.

Further plans would include
a 50-slip marina, golf courses,
villas and condominiums.

Mrs Maynard-Gibson yes:

terday told the House. of

resort and industrial park
planned for Mayaguana would
help to alleviate social inequal-
ity in the southern Bahamas,
an area hit hard by poverty.
‘Apart from jobs, she said
poverty would be alleviated
through new housing, the sup-
ply of potable water and elec-
tricity, and entrepreneurial

opportunities.

Mrs Maynard-Gibson
acknowledged that the
Mayaguana project would
incorporate the largest bloc of
Crown Land of any develop-
ment in the Bahamas, but hit
back at those calling it a “land
giveaway”.

She pointed out that through
the Hotel Corporation’s 50 per
cent stake, the Bahamian peo-
ple through the Government
owned 50 per cent of the pro-
ject.

Mrs Maynard-Gibson said:
“Members of this place should
also note that in this landmark
development, unlike Freeport
where a developer retained 100
per cent of its profits and
owned all the land, the people
of the Bahamas are full 50 per
cent participants in this devel-
opment. ~

Poverty

“Poverty and inequality in
Mayaguana and the southeast-
etn Bahamas will be attacked
at their root, as Bahamians
there will continue to get good
jobs as those islands’
economies are reinvigorated.”

Out of investment projects
already started, Mrs Maynard-
Gibson said they were project-
ed to have a total capital spend
of $7 billion, of which $1.4 bil-
lion had already been spent.

She added that out of the

’ $1.4 billion, some $415 million.

had been awarded to Bahami-
an contractors and companies,

cast to create 19,000 jobs.

Hotel pension funds

owed ‘large sum’
by Royal Oasis

THE two hotel industry pen-
sion funds yesterday confirmed
a previous Tribune Business
story that they had moved to
take possession of the Royal
Oasis group’s assets due to the
“very considerable amount of
money” owed by the still-
closed Grand Bahama resort.

In a statement issued yester-
day, the Bahamas Hotel Indus-
try Management Pension Fund
and Bahamas Hotel and Allied
Industry Pension Fund said
they had “taken steps to take
possession of the assets or col-
lect the debts (including pro-
ceeds of sale) due to the Royal
Oasis Group of Companies”.

This effectively means that
the two pension funds will be
‘at the table’ in negotiations
between the hotel’s financial
backer, Lehman Brothers’ pri-
vate equity arm, and potential
buyers.

’ Lehman is understoad to be

looking for about $45 million
for the property, once it col-
lects on the insurance proceeds.
Although the move by the pen-
sion funds will not disrupt the
-esort’s sale, it means that a
dortion of the sales proceeds
nust be used to pay what they
are owed, which is understood
to be in the millions.

The two funds said the Roy-
al Oasis group had become
delinquent in paying contribu-
tions on behalf of its partici-
pating employees before it
closed in September 2004 as a
result of the hurricanes.

The Royal Oasis group,
which includes Tower at
Bahamia, Country Club at
Bahamia, Princess Vacation
Club, Princess Casinos and

Caribbean Utility Company,

had signed agreements oblig-
ating them to make contribu-

tions into the two pension
funds to ensure that participat-
ing workers would received the
defined benefits promised.

Contributions were based on
employee base salaries, and the
two pension funds said their
sustainability was dependent
on hotels making timely and
consistent payments on their
workers’ behalf.

The two pension funds said:

“The Royal Oasis group of |

companies became delinquent
in paying contributions. to the
funds during the period prior to
the closure of the properties in
2004, following Hurricanes
Jeanne and Francis. Despite all
the efforts of the trustees to
collect the outstanding contri-
butions, the management of
these properties failed to live
up to their obligations.

“The employees of the Roy-
al Oasis group of companies
have been given benefits and
pension credits for the period
up to the date of closure of the
property, even though contri-
butions were not being paid by
the Royal Oasis group of com-
panies. In addition, the trustees
continued to give pension cred-
its to the much reduced work-
force following closure.”

Pension credits have now



ceased to be built up, as the
Royal Oasis now has no
employees. All former
employees can now contact the
funds to determine the status of
their pension credits and bene-
fits.

The funds:said: “Prior to the
closure, the funds initiated legal
action to force the manage-
ment of the Royal Oasis Group
to comply with the agreements.
This action failed to achieve
the desired results, so the
funds’ attorneys then obtained
Supreme Court judgements
against the Royal Oasis group.

“Upon receipt of the court
orders, the trustees instructed
their attorneys to pursue suc-
cessive legal steps to get settle-

‘ment of these judgement debts.

At this time, the funds have
taken steps to take possession
of the assets or collect the debts
(including proceeds of sale)
due to the Royal Oasis Group
of Companies.

“The collection of these out-
standing contributions is para-
mount in order for the funds
to maintain their financial abil-
ity to meet the obligation to
pay benefits to all participants
and former employees of the
Royal Oasis group of compa-
nies.”
