Pinder: No permanent positions for court reporters on contract

Twenty-two court reporters working on contract with the government may not become permanent workers once their agreement expires at the end of September, according to President of the Bahamas Public Service Union (BPSU) John Pinder.Pinder told The Nassau Guardian yesterday that the government continued the contract that the workers had entered into with LET Consultancy when it prematurely terminated the company's contract in December.The reporters were given termination letters last December by LET Consultancy, after the government canceled its contract nine months ahead of its expiration. The company's principal Ludell Theophilus was first awarded the contract in 1999.Pinder said there was an understanding that those workers would be considered for permanent positions. However, he said he just recently learned that contracted workers "are being advised that their contracts will be renewed for two years"."This was never agreed to by us. We expected them to be considered for permanent and pensionable status," Pinder said.He said another concern of the contracted workers is that they have been paid several days late since January. Pinder said he has asked the people responsible for payment to ensure that the reporters are paid at same time as other public service workers.

A boy's fight with cancer

When Zordella Mullings and Javon Frazer Sr. insured their son as a baby they did not know how desperately they would need that coverage.
Less than a year after they began claiming on that insurance policy, the $1 million available to them had been used.
Javon Frazer Jr., 5, has stage three Burkitts Lymphoma. A playful game between mother and son led to the discovery that would change life for the young family.
It was about one year ago when Mullings said she felt the lump on her son’s stomach. She said her son had the annoying habit of rubbing her stomach. On a January day she returned the favor to “show him how it felt”. That’s when Mullings realized that somet ...

Young mother fatally shot

FREEPORT, Grand Bahama - A 24-year-old mother has become Grand Bahama's fifth homicide victim for 2011.
The woman sustained a fatal gunshot wound to the head on Saturday night while in the Royal Bahamia Estates area.
According to police, they received a call around 10:45 p.m. on Saturday, June 18, notifying them that a female had been shot.
Uniformed and plain clothes officers responded and they learned the woman had taken a bullet to the head, and she was transported by ambulance to the Accident and Emergency section of the Rand Memorial Hospital to receive treatment.
The victim, who is a resident of Eight Mile Rock, succumbed to her injuries a short time later, mere minutes before 11:00 p.m, police said.
Police said that the motive for the fatal shooting is unknown at this time. They are calling for the help of the Grand Bahama community to assist in solving this crime, and are urging anyone with information that could assist their investigation to call 350-3107/8, 352-9774/5 or 911.
Detectives from the Central Detective Unit, Scenes of Crime Unit and uniformed divisions are conducting an intense investigation into the shooting, according to police.
Police are also urging the public to come forth with any information they may have on the homicides of 31-year-old Kiano Javier Martinborough and 29-year-old Sonny Anafolis, the third and fourth homicide victims for the year.
Both were shot in the Garden Villas area.
Martinborough was shot in the head on Sunday, May 8, 2011 sometime after 11:00 p.m.
When police arrived on Adventurer's Way after being notified about the shooting, officers came across Martinborough, who was lying on the ground suffering from a gunshot wound to the head.
He was pronounced dead shortly after being transported by ambulance to the Rand Memorial Hospital.
Anafolis, who was shot in the back of the neck on Monday, May 16, became paralyzed from his injuries and remained in critical condition until he died on Friday, May 27 at the Princess Margaret Hospital in New Providence.
Sources told The Freeport News that the deaths of Martinborough and Anafolis were connected, alleging that Anafolis was the intended victim the night Martinborough was killed.
The first homicide for the year occurred when 24-year-old Tamaro Johnson was stabbed on Sunday, March 8, outside of Club Rock N' Roll in the International Bazaar.
Johnson, who had received multiple stab wounds to the body, succumbed to his injuries the next day at the Rand Memorial Hospital.
Twenty-one-year-old Jonathan McKenzie and 18-year-old Darieo Demetrius Smith were charged with his murder.
Both will return to court on July 13, 2011 for a preliminary inquiry.
Forty-two-year-old Patrick Russell of Lewis Yard was killed on Monday, March 7, becoming the island's second homicide.
Russell had been sitting in his vehicle through an unpaved road between Weddell Avenue and Bruce Avenue when another vehicle approached and the occupants opened fire on him.
He sustained multiple gunshots wound about the body and was pronounced dead upon arrival at the Rand Memorial Hospital.
Twenty-eight-year-old Leonard Louis Barnett was charged with his murder.

VAT draft legislation and regulations welcomed, more information sought

The government's release of the value-added tax (VAT) draft legislation and regulations via its website on Friday elicited grateful responses from members of the business community yesterday, but several noted they still could not make a realistic determination of VAT's impact on their operations without the release of the details surrounding what changes will be made to import duty and excise taxes when VAT is implemented.
The legislation was released along with a Guide to VAT Legislation document, but no indication was given as to when the tariff schedule will be released.
The legislation broadly remained the same as the earlier draft obtained and publicized by The Nassau Guardian earlier this month, with a handful of significant adaptations including the exempting of all insurance sectors from VAT, and the addition of VAT to residential electricity supplies for those who consume over a given amount of energy per month. The previous draft suggested only commercial energy bills would be "vatable".
A 15 percent VAT rate for most businesses was confirmed, with VAT on hotel accommodation and hotel food and beverage purchases to be charged at 10 percent. One hundred thousand dollars in actual or anticipated annual revenue will be the threshold for VAT registration, and filings will be made on a monthly basis.
The latest version of the legislation, which the Guide suggested was being released to enable "an intensive and extensive public education and consultation exercise" did not appear to include any specific amendments taking into consideration concerns raised by the Chamber of Commerce and Employer's Confederation's Coalition for Responsible Taxation in their letter to the prime minister and Ministry of Finance earlier this month regarding VAT.
Robert Myers, co-chair of the Coalition, which has been seeking to dialogue with the government on the basis for VAT and potential alternatives, said the legislation and regulations were an update to that which had been made available to the Coalition co-chairs by the government previously.
"We're reviewing it now," he said. "It helps that they have released it, it's very helpful, but our recent statement is still valid: we need the (financial/economic) modelling and the tariff schedule."
Meanwhile, Rick Lowe, operations manager for Nassau Motor Company, suggested that an example provided in the Guide to VAT released alongside the legislation and regulations by the government left more questions than answers as it included an assumption that excise tax would be reduced by 18.9 percent - not the roughly 17 percent previously suggested by the government.
Lowe said he is concerned that the government "keeps tweaking the numbers" and called for the release of the tariff schedule.
"The sample calculation provided by the government suggests there will be an 18.9 percent reduction in the Excise Tax and because no mark up is allowed on the VAT portion of the taxes paid at the port, this attempts to force a 13 percent reduction in a businesses mark up," Lowe said.
"Meanwhile, the government is projecting an increase in taxes taken of 21.05 percent. Businesses that fall under the Price Control Act will have no choice but to accept the reduction, unless these controls are removed, but that aside, adjustments will have to be made if profitability levels are to be maintained.
"You've got to maintain some level of gross margin and if they are automatically taking it away by the force of law, it only leaves other alternatives: delay renovations, don't give benefits, or if someone leaves you don't hire a replacement. Or do you in fact get to the point of lay offs? Heaven forbid it's bad enough in the economy."
The government has previously indicated that it intends to reduce import duties when VAT is implemented, in order to offset the inflationary impact of VAT on goods.
In the Guide to VAT provided, the government notes of its intentions with respect to import tariffs: "The Government plans to reduce tariff rates, as of July 1 2014, by an amount just sufficient to compensate for the introduction of VAT for nearly all most products that are now subject to a tariff rate above 15 percent. Tariff rates at or below 15 percent would be eliminated. The structure of the existing protections for domestic manufacturing and agricultural products would continue to be enjoyed. "With the rebalancing of tariffs to absorb the VAT, the prices paid for some goods by consumers after the introduction of VAT could remain unchanged."
Lowe has been a vocal critic of VAT.
Edison Sumner, president of the BCCEC and a member of the government's consultative committee on VAT, said that the release of the documents will enable the broader membership of the Chamber of Commerce to review it and provide feedback that the BCCEC can bring into its consultations with the government.
"The Chamber is still concerned that we don't have all the documents. We are glad the draft has been released and that it is now in the public domain so business people and consumers can be more informed going into this discussion, but we are still waiting on other documents and hopeful we will be seeing those soon. Once that happens we can review all in concert and put all the pieces together."
The government proposes to implement VAT on July 1, 2014, as part of a fiscal reform package intended to stabilize the government's fiscal position in the medium to long term.

Elnet Maritime spreads holiday cheer

FREEPORT, Grand Bahama -- For the second consecutive year, Elnet Maritime Agency hosted the children of the Grand Bahama Children's Home to a post-Thanksgiving feast and fun-filled day.
Their mission was to share God's love with the less fortunate during this holiday season.
"It was a time for sharing and fun where we had the opportunity to show God's love. We prayed with the children, sang songs and enjoyed a Thanksgiving feast," said Janet Mills-Shepherd, Vice-president of Human Resources for Elnet Maritime.
Pastor Audley Swain of Grace Bible Fellowship was there to share an important message to the children. After their meal they enjoyed bouncing castles, slides, music, popcorn and cotton candy. Elnet also provided every child with a t-shirt and colouring book.
"Our CEO, Mr. Ellie Hepburn, came up with this incredible idea and our Elnet team worked together to execute this special event," said Mrs. Mills-Shepherd.  "Special thanks to Tabitha Bowe, Tanya Hall, Shandell Johnson and Patricia Rolle who all played a special role. It was a rewarding day for us all."
