PM remarks at Signing of BTS - CWC Shareholder Agreement

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I am very pleased to
have witnessed the signing by the Treasurer of The Bahamas of the Shareholders
Agreement affecting the transfer of 51% of the shares in the Bahamas
Telecommunications Company to Cable and Wireless Communications Plc, our new
partners in the provision of telecommunications services to the Bahamian public
through BRC.

This has been a very
long journey and at times a difficult journey.

We never lost sight of
our commitment to improve the delivery of telecommunications services to the
Bahamian public; a commitment first made by my Government in 1992.  By 1998 we had accepted that in order
to deliver that improved service, privatisation of Batelco and liberalization
of the sector would be necessary.

Anti-doping education focus essential

It is essential for anti-doping education in this country to be ongoing. Our athletic program is broad. It stretches from north to south over the archipelago.
Our elite athletes are fully aware of the international anti-doping code signed on to by most countries of the world. They understand from personal experiences the testing process and the importance of an anti-doping program to ensure as best as is possible, fair competition. Junior athletes from The Bahamas who have been engaging in regional and international sports, know of the world anti-doping mission as well. So do our student/athletes who are involved in programs in their respective institutions abroad.
It must be recognized though that the majority of the locally-based young (and some older) athletes who have not been afforded the necessary exposure, know very little or nothing about the anti-doping program. Well, there is an organization called the Bahamas
Anti-Doping Commission (BADC). It is of course, a most recent development, so it figures that an educational program would be high on the BADC's agenda.
Charged with leading the educational thrust of the BADC is Dr. Patti Symonette. She had the opportunity recently to provide information about anti-doping to a group of young ladies. Reference is to the national under-17 female soccer squad.
Dr. Symonette conducted a seminar upon the request of the Bahamas Football Association (BFA). It was a well-timed event. The team is about to embark on the most significant soccer venture in the history of The Bahamas. The Confederation of North, Central America and Caribbean Association Football (CONCACAF) stages its tournament final in Guatemala May 2-10 and The Bahamas is one of the eight best teams In the region.
There is indeed an anti-doping focus at major sporting events, so athletes need to be educated. Dr. Symonette primed the under-17 girls.
"Say no to doping in sports. Know what you are putting into your body. If you are not certain... don't take it... ask questions first. Know that some substances are prohibited in and out of competition. A prohibited substance list is available to every player, parent and coach," informed Dr. Symonette.
What about athletes who have a particular health issue that needs treatment by medication that is on the prohibited list?
"As an athlete, you might have an illness or condition that requires a certain medication. If this medication appears on the prohibited list; you may be granted Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE) which gives permission to take it. If your health will be significantly impaired if you do not take the substance; if the substance does not enhance your performance beyond what brings you back to normal health; if there are no alternative treatments available, TUE is a way to ensure that you are able to obtain treatment for a legitimate medical condition... even if that treatment requires a prohibited substance or method," Dr. Symonette explained.
Such education platforms on anti-doping are good and yes, pivotal as the world sports stage expands, with our athletes figuring prominently in the process.

Suspicious activity during the election

Dear Editor,

In the letters to the editor column of The Nassau Guardian of June 11, 2012 was a letter from one Darron Cash under the title "Minister Keith Bell's accusations impugn integrity of force". It is quite obvious that Cash is an FNM. That being the case, he is not in a position to make a fair determination on Bell's statement.
In Bell's letter to the commissioner he was in part stating a fact, something that was seen not only by him, but countless others. I have been told by any number of voters that the FNM was paying good money for votes and wanted my opinion on what they should do. My advice was simple: You need the money, take it and vote for who you feel like. Apparently many voters did just that and the final results of the election, like 2002, proved it.
The officers who were assigned to the political gofers were, I can assure you, there on orders from a superior who had his instructions from the top echelon of the political directorate. It is amazing that Cash, one of papa's blue-eyed boys, is now calling for an inquiry. He must be careful because he might just get what he wished for and it most certainly will not be what he wanted.
For the information of Cash, in the 2002 election when defeat was staring the FNM in the face, each candidate (FNM) was given $1 million two weeks before the election to try to win. I think that this administration should have a micro-audit of all treasury accounts for the period of 1997 and 2002 and 2007 to 2012 by a private accounting firm and let the chips fall where they may. All contracts given for the same periods must be reviewed.
Bell's statements did not impugn the integrity of the force; it was the person or persons in the political directorate who corruptly ordered the use of those officers for such ventures. Cash would be well advised to let the commissioner of police carry out his duties without disruption and/or detractions by wannabe politicians.
Adding insult to injury was an article including comments from the leader of the FNM on page A2 of The Nassau Guardian of June 12 under the headline "Minnis says Bell should name officers who facilitated corruption".

Is Dr. Hubert Minnis really serious? The persons handing out the envelopes were naturally paid gofers. The persons guarding them, if they were police officers, were there on orders. The question is, on whose orders? Certainly not the commissioner of police; maybe an officer of high rank, but we now have another question. Who gave instructions? We are now getting close. It not only must be, but it has to be someone from the top echelon of the political directorate. Can you please help the investigation in that regard dear doctor? Seeing that you are now the new leader, certain information should be readily available to you.
I do agree with you dear doctor that the new administration should be focused on criminal activities and I am sure that you will agree that they should begin with the shenanigans of the former administration in this regard. I do not think that they should be concerned about what the Americans think about our situation, as they have a far more serious one. They are concerned about not only the young ladies, but every person who has been murdered. They do not have to worry about Father's Day for they will know when that day is approaching by the number of crab baskets and pens that will be adorning our streets.
Dr. Minnis is a true professional and a good representative, but that certainly does not make him a leader. He is now in very deep waters, in fact he is in a blue hole - one that can spell the end to his political ambitions.
Leaders are born not made and that is a truism. The departure of Hubert Ingraham from the political landscape of this archipelago has left not only this nation broke and chin deep in debt, but a broken economy, a messed up city with canals along all major routes, a crime-ridden social system, corruption at an unprecedented level, an unacceptable level of joblessness, a frustrated electorate and a party like a rudderless ship in a category five hurricane, leaderless, broke, millions of dollars in debt and on the verge of disbanding. Oh, what a fantastic legacy for posterity.

- Errington W. I. Watkins

A sister follows suit

Sibling rivalry is as old as time, but for one young lady there is a strong push in her to do everything her brother does, and then to do it even better. And it seems Barrise Griffin is on her way. Her brother was named Gentleman of the Year in 2005 and Barrise has followed suit. She was recently named Debutante of the Year.
"It's still a shock to me that I actually was named Debutante of the Year," said the St. Augustine's College graduating senior. "But I feel privileged to have this honor to my name. I'm glad they picked me," said the 16-year-old.
Barrise was one of 53 young ladies from various high schools who over a six-month period were exposed to social graces that they would need to carry them through life by the Bahamas Debutante Foundation, of which Cristina Johnson is president.
"The process was interesting and I learned a lot of things that I did not think I would need in life," said Barrise. "I knew I needed table etiquette, but the way that you present yourself and first impressions I didn't know were so strong in society, and I'm glad that debutantes actually taught me these things because I am a young lady stepping into society and now I am prepared to step into society," she said.
She also found helpful topics relating to how to speak in front of people; how to act like a lady and carry herself; how to dress according to her body size and business etiquette. It was a program Barrise signed up for because she felt she had to know what she would need as a young lady.
While she's proud to be named Debutante of the Year, Barrise also has the brains to go with her social graces. She is graduating high school with a 3.45 cumulative grade point average. Surprisingly, she does not attribute her study habits and work ethic to a parent, but rather her brother -- the same one whom she does her best to do better than.

A role model big brother
"Throughout the years watching him work hard, get straight A's, being successful... I was just like I can't be overshadowed by him. I studied him, watched what he did and followed suit and just became a mini-Barry. I see how ambitious he is and I wasn't very ambitious, but then I picked up his work ethic and became ambitious as well. I have to make my name known as well," she said.
Barrise admits that there is a huge sibling rivalry -- at least on her part.
"There is a big sibling rivalry. [Barry] comes out on top most times because he's the oldest, but I'm impressed by him because he's passionate about what he does, and he does not take no for an answer. He's a go-getter. Everything that I see him do and if he gets hurt by it, he just rises up on top again and makes everyone know that a little obstacle in his path won't defeat him."
Barry, 23, is a law student at King's College in London.
Even though she has tried for years to best her brother, Barrise said there were a few years when she scaled by. She never found herself in a failing situation, she always made the honor roll, but looking back, she said if she had applied herself, she could have done even better.
"In grades seven and eight I was like I'm in high school I might as well just have fun, let's see what all the hype is about in high school. Then in grade nine it just hit me. We had to pick the electives we wanted to study and I was like I have to get serious now. And then Barry who was already in college was telling me how life was going to be rough and that I had to get serious. It just hit me that I had to get serious."
Barrise said she put her game face on and made the switch. She sat six Bahamas Junior Certificates (BJC) and was graded at A in Math, English, Social Studies, General Science; B in Health Science and C in Art.
She's currently sitting seven Bahamas General Certificates of Secondary Education (BGCSE) exams -- Math, English Language, English Literature, Spanish, Economics, Biology and Chemistry. She said she prepared well and was confident she would do well in all of the senior tests.
And she plans to study bio-chemistry with a view to becoming an orthodontist.
"When I was little and had a shaky tooth, I stood up on a stool and it [stool] slipped from underneath me, and I fell and hit my tooth on the bed and it came out. My mother said to put it under the pillow, that I'd get money from it. The next morning I checked under the pillow, money [$5] was there and I said wow you can get money from teeth, I got $5 for one tooth and there are 32 teeth, I said this is my dream job."
Barrise has received partial scholarship offers from Caldwell University in New Jersey and the United World College of Costa Rica (UNCCR). She's currently weighing her options. Caldwell has the best dentistry program which would allow her to complete her bachelor's degree in three years before moving on to an affiliate program at Temple University for her dental degree. But UNCCR is also alluring, as it will afford her the opportunity of experiencing a different culture.
"And I do I want to explore the world, experience different culture, see what it's like," she said.
While Barrise prepares to begin the next phase of her educational life, her thoughts she said are still on besting her big brother, but it's something she wants to do as Barrise as she moves away from trying to be a "mini-Barry".
"The sibling rivalry will be there for the rest of my life, but I want to be Barrise. I don't know if I'll be on top of him, but I want to at least be on equal ground with him. He's older than me, so he's always going to be like three steps ahead, but I won't stop going after what I love," she said.

A proud father
If you ask her father, Barry Griffin Sr., Barrise has no need to pattern herself after her brother.
"To be honest, for some reason I've had more faith in her than she's had in herself. I've seen her stepping above her brother, because she's a natural. Her brother studies a lot. She does not study as much as he does, but she's still on par with him. So I always tell her if she applies herself more, she will rise above him and that the only person stopping her is her," he said.
And there is no one prouder of Barrise's accomplishments than her parents Marie and Barry Griffin Sr. And her father was excited for the opportunity to escort his daughter to the Debutante Ball. He was even eager to learn to waltz so that he could dance to Luther Vandross' "Dance With My Father" with his Barrise. It's a song he always told her they would have to do for her father-daughter dance at her wedding.
"Barrise always says we're more excited for her than she is for herself. When we were told as fathers what to wear and how to dress for the Debutante Ball, I was prepared almost a month before the event," he said. (That embarrassed Barrise a tad).
For Barrise's father the Debutante program was also a learning experience that he found amazing. He especially enjoyed the father-daughter day. It allowed him to show the close relationship he has with his daughter and how well he knew her.
During the question and answer segment no question they threw his way proved to be difficult. He correctly answered that Barrise's favorite color is gray. That she likes the music from Queen and Elvis. (Actually he's gotten her hooked). That she loves fruit and will eat it everyday -- and it doesn't matter what kind of fruit it is. He also knew that her shoe size is eight-and-a-half.
He was also disappointed that there were some fathers who did not take advantage of the opportunity to be there for their daughters.
"At the ball, there was a particular young lady whose father could not make it because he had to go to work. I said at that time, that no work was more important, because that was a moment in time that you would never get back. So you had to seize the moment. I believe in spending time with your children. I always try to be there with Barrise ... whenever," he said. "Sometimes I can almost feel when she needs my presence and I can pop up and offer what I think she needs. And for some reason, 90 percent of the time that is what she needs. When you spend time with your children, it's your greatest reward," said the proud father.
Her father's love for her and willingness to be there for her embarrassed her a little, but Barrise said she knows she's fortunate, because there are many children who have absentee fathers.
"It means a lot to me to know that no matter what he's always there for me. He says he's my number one fan and it's good to know that I have that support team with me," she said adding that her mother is just as excited for her accomplishments as well.

NPSA swings into action

With a number of players switching teams this year, it is hard for executive members in the New Providence Softball Association (NPSA) to pinpoint which squad is the strongest this season.
Top female pitcher Thela Johnson has parted ways with defending champions the Proper Care Pool Sharks and will step on the mound for the Lady Hitmen. Despite Thela Johnson's departure and the addition of players like Melinda Bastian, to the Lady Hitmen's roster, newly elected public relations officer Arthur Johnson still believes that the Sharks is strong.
The Sharks will play in the season opener with the Boomer G. Operators tonight. The women's game will get on the way immediately after the opening ceremony. Veteran player Oria Wood is expected to make the first pitch for this game and Ali Culmer will 'toss the ball' to start play on the men's side.
The new team in the dugout, the Y2 Shipping Bulldogs will go up against the Boomer George Truckers. The opening ceremony is set for 7 p.m. at the Bankers Field, in the Balliou Hill Sporting Complex. Alcott Forbes and veteran pitchers Edney 'The Heat' Bethel and Leroy Thompson are on new squads.
"This year we had a lot of player movements so it is hard to say who is the strongest team," confirmed Johnson. "I think all the teams are strong this year. All the teams have good pitchers who can assist them. Since we had teams not returning those players joined forces with other teams, making those stronger.
"We are looking to have an exciting season. We have a balance now. The balance is even stronger in the ladies division. We did have some changes happening in the men's division. We expect some upsets and other surprises."
Seven female teams will compete for bragging rights this season. These squads include the Sharks, Lady Hitmen, Y2 Shipping Wildcats, Sigma Brackette's, A.S.A.P Assassins, Black Scorpions and the Boomer G Operators. Johnson did confirm that this year's numbers, on the women's side, is an improvement from last year. The league has seen a decrease in men's action. Only six teams will compete, unlike the 2011 season where they had nine. The Outlaws and New Breed are two of the teams not returning this year. Other participating squads are Blue Chip Buccaneers, Y2 Shipping Bulldogs, Boomer G Truckers, Miller Rams, Dorin United Hitmen and the Caribbean Civil Group Mighty Mitts coached by Alphonso 'Chicken' Albury.
Executives in the NPSA are hoping to improve the league's image trying to turn the park into a 'family atmosphere'. The league's newly elected president is Godfrey Burnside who is no stranger to the softball park. Burnside will be assisted by Marvin Wood, Vernie Curry, Ken Wood Jr., Andy Percentie, Anthony Bullock, Jeff Henfield, Eric Johnson, Renee Davis, Angelo Dillette and Lawrence Smith.
