Shoe Store 'Attacked by Arsonists'

ARSONISTS are thought to have set fire to the country's biggest self-serve shoe store early yesterday morning in a second attack on the building since the weekend.

Bani, in Mackey Street, was destroyed in the blaze sparked at around 4.40am, less than an hour after Lincoln Bain, a major shareholder in the business, had abandoned his armed night watch of the store, which is next door to a branch of the Royal Bank of Canada.

Cash defends FNM leader

The message Free National Movement (FNM) Leader Dr. Hubert Minnis sent to Prime Minister Perry Christie on Wednesday was to take a step back and get the constitutional referendum process right, according to FNM Chairman Darron Cash, who said in a statement yesterday the message was not to turn back."Dr. Hubert Minnis acted within the true spirit of what this constitutional review process entails; he listened to the people. And the people are urging this government to do the same," Cash said.

"In that regard, the Bahamian people deserve a lot of credit for engaging intensely in this debate from the very beginning. "They are not waiting until the bills are finalized before they have their say; they are setting the record straight up front. That is a good thing for the country."He said, "Dr. Minnis and the FNM remain 100 percent committed to the goal of ensuring full equality for women. A determination to improve and refine the draft legislation and a determination to improve a process that will ensure that the bills are acceptable to the majority of the Bahamians people should not be misinterpreted."There are four constitutional amendment bills before the House of Assembly.A referendum on gender equality is set for November 6.Cash's statement came two days after Minnis indicated in the House that the opposition is not fully onboard with the referendum process and has concerns about the bills.Three weeks earlier, Minnis pledged bipartisan support for the measures after they were tabled.

Minnis' latest position heightened uncertainty over the fate of the bills.Cash said, "By publicly stating his case, the leader demonstrated courage to do the right thing and a willingness to listen to people when their views are requested."He said, "The leader and members of the FNM wisely pulled back from the referendum abyss by refusing to join the Christie government in totally ignoring the voices of the people. Dr. Minnis and the parliamentary team are to be congratulated for doing so, not condemned."But on Thursday, FNM Deputy Loretta Butler-Turner told reporters she supports the bills 100 percent and intends to vote yes.Cash said yesterday that anyone who says the FNM does not support gender equality efforts is being disingenuous."That commitment is exactly why we have come up with clear suggestions on how to improve the process and more importantly how to achieve equality for Bahamian women both through constitutional amendments and amending existing legislation," he said.Minnis recommended that bill number four be sent to a committee of the House for clarification.

That bill would make it unconstitutional to discriminate against someone based on sex.He also said constitutional amendment bills number two and three can be dealt with through legislation.Bill number two seeks to enable a Bahamian woman who marries a foreign man to secure the same access to Bahamian citizenship that a Bahamian man enjoys.Bill number three would reverse the law that prohibits an unwed Bahamian man from passing his citizenship to his child if he or she is born to a foreign woman.Cash said it became obvious to the FNM, as it was to some PLP parliamentarians and members of the wider society, that some of the language ought to be adjusted to ensure simplicity and the elimination of ambiguities."In light of our constructive engagement we take issue with all those who seek to give the impression that the uncertainty surrounding the referendum is a result of the FNMs' statements or actions," he said. "In fact, the public should note that, in order for the amendment to be successful in the lower House, the PLP did not need the FNM's support based on their numbers. "However, because they lacked the support within their own ranks our cooperation became absolutely crucial. "We neither sought to use this as leverage nor did we undertake to prejudice an already skeptical and weary public. "Therefore, we caution the leadership of the PLP and the [Constitutional] Commission to be responsible and measured in their comments and let us truly collaborate on this important course of action."Cash also claimed that Christie did not demonstrate strength during debate on the bills on Wednesday."Instead, Prime Minister Christie buried his head in his hands and behaved as if all was lost," he said."As the father of the House, Mr. Christie, of all people, must know the power of the people and the power of the people to force Parliament to change course. "He, of all people, should know that because that is precisely what he did when he was in Dr. Minnis' shoes in 2002."Cash was referring to the fact that the PLP voted yes for the 2002 referendum bills then campaigned against them in the public, securing a no vote.

A govt out of touch with its people

Dear Editor,
The government is out of touch with The College of the Bahamas (COB) - only he who feels it knows it.
I wish to publicly support the College of the Bahamas Union of Students (COBUS) and its president for recent statements made in protest to proposed budget cuts at the college. To borrow a line from the COBUS press release, the proposed cuts in government subsidies to COB are an "autocratic, visionless attempt to cripple the national institution". COBUS added: "This may be the straw to finally cripple our national ability to educate our own citizens."
As a proud alumna of The College of the Bahamas, I can honestly say only he who feels it knows it.
The minister of education was quoted in yesterday's Guardian as stating that the proposed cuts, which are scheduled for COB, "should be done without affecting the college's level of service". That statement proves how out of touch he is. Perhaps he and other ministers who sit in lofty places need to try and put themselves in the students' shoes.
Notwithstanding the stellar education that students obtain at COB, it is no secret that there are administrative issues such as the dated registration process and the unavailability of classes, which continue to plague students. Budget cuts will not solve these longstanding issues.
How can this government, on the one hand, continue to press for the establishment of the University of The Bahamas but yet, on the other hand, ask the college as well as other agencies to, in the words of Ryan Pinder, "review their finances with an eye to cost savings". No doubt the consequence of budget cuts or "cost savings" will be an increase in fees, which will be a rod for the backs of thousands of students.
The government needs to be reminded that for thousands of Bahamians (I was one of them for seven years) The College of the Bahamas is the only place where they will be able to obtain a tertiary education. Going abroad to university is still a luxury for many. Therefore, the government ought to be exercising some intellectual muscle to determine how to financially empower and not financially weaken our great college.
I remain forever grateful for the many years I spent at the college. It was there I was molded into the citizen that I have become. As I watched the president of COBUS' lamentations, I sadly said to myself only he who feels it knows it. This government is clearly out of touch with the students at The College of the Bahamas. This can't be the government who 'Believes in Bahamians' and who promised that it would "double" its investment in education.
The future University of The Bahamas should not fall victim to subsidy cuts while the government is contemplating increasing the salaries and benefits to Parliamentarians; the constructions of a new complex to house the Senate and House of Assembly and the purchase and or construction of a prime minister's residence.
In addition, the government has re-employed a number of retired civil servants, by way of contract - some of whom receive salaries in the high five-figure range. To add insult to injury the re-hires, for the most part, have been assigned positions occupied by tenured civil servants who have either been redeployed to lower level positions while receiving the salary of the previous positions held, or sent home on full salary to await redeployment.
There are numerous other instances of waste, unfettered government spending and incompetent management and deployment of resources which have brought The Bahamas to this place.
Buyer's remorse is growing.
- Heather L. Hunt, Senator
