Gov't departments overspend by $19m – Bad budgets and mis-management to blame SCORES of Government departments spent well above their allocated budgets last financial year, according to a recently published audit report. A massive $19 million excess expenditure was recorded across the board and much of it took place without the proper controls, management and documentation. The biggest ministerial culprits were the Attorney General’s Chambers, the Ministry of Health and Education and the Ministry of Environment and Home Affairs. They all had a massive overspend of close to $3 million each, while excess statutory charges also hit $3 million. Overall during the 2012/2013 financial year the Government recorded a savings of $11 million on its budget but bad departmental budgets and mis-management of accounts meant that more was not retained. This news comes just months after the Weekly News revealed that during the previous financial year the interim government overspent by a momentous $31 million. Recommendations were made to revamp the system after it was slated to be inadequate and too informal. But despite a plethora of systematic changes leading to a reduction in the Government’s excess expenditure it is still listed as ‘high risk’ and a ‘significant deficiency’ in the ‘Auditor General’s Report on

the 2012/2013 TCIG Financial Statements’. The comprehensive report was laid before the House of Assembly at their latest meeting before being referred to the Public Accounts Committee. Auditor General Anand Heeraman of the National Audit Office (NAO) led the lengthy assessment along with four auditors and four assistant auditors. The paper, dated March 19, 2014, highlights several areas of material weakness and significant deficiencies with the Government’s financial handling. WHO SPENT IT? The total Government expenditure for 2012/2013 was about $168.8 million

and total budgeted was just over $180.2 million including supplementary expenditure. This resulted in a savings of more than $11.4 million or six per cent, the Auditor General wrote in his report. “We commend those accounting officers who tried to manage their expenditure in keeping with financial regulations,” he said. However across many departments there was a total $19 million in excess expenditure which included excess payroll costs of more than $6.7 million, and excess operating costs of $12.2 million. After accounting for various savings within each department, a massive $9 million excess expenditure was recorded for the financial year in 32 departments and ministries. This was not approved by the House of Assembly and was in breach of the 2012/2013 Appropriation Ordinance. The biggest culprit was the Attorney General’s Chambers which overspent on various projects by more than $3.6 million. When underspend on other projects within the Chambers was accounted for, this hit a huge overspend of $2.3 million or 17 per cent over its budgeted $16 million. Next highest was the Ministry of Environment and Home Affairs which overspent by $2.9 million or $1.9 million including savings. This including a huge overspend of $1.5 million in the Environmental Health continued 

PDM presents alternative plans to Gov’t on financial challenges

THE GOVERNMENT and the Opposition (PDM) met at the table this past week for amicable discourse on the current financial difficulties facing the country. Leader of the Opposition, Sharlene Cartwright Robinson and other members of the PDM secured a meeting with Premier Rufus Ewing and Minister of Finance Washington Misick to present an alternative plan to tackling the current financial issues. Although neither party would go into the details of what the plan entails, the PDM leader told the Weekly News that the plan addresses paying down the sizable debt, the need for a broad-based tax in the country and the unpopular payroll tax. She said they would first give the Government a chance to consider the document without it being in the public domain. When contacted, Finance Minister Washington Misick said he has not had a chance to examine the entire plan as yet, but has met with and spoken to the PDM members in a very amicable discussion. He added that the Government has since sent on some additional information to the Opposition members which they were not in possession of when they put together their plan. Misick said it is now up to the

party to consider the information and decide whether they would like to take it into account, and then they can meet again for further discussions on the issues. The PDM party has made its opposition to the proposed payroll tax loud and very clear, and is currently conducting a referendum to present to the Government. Since the Government announced its intention to introduce the tax and its efforts to get the country on stable financial footing, the Opposition has protested that the way to go is not to tax an already over-burdened country. The party has also publicly outlined several other revenue generating measures, most of which have to do with efficient collection

of millions of dollars owed to the Government which it is not making any attempt to recoup. Last week, the Weekly News broke a story which revealed a massive $26 million in unpaid revenue at the end of the 2012/2013 financial year which were unrecoverable due to inconsistencies in public accounts. The figures were pulled from the ‘Auditor General’s Report on the 2012/2013 TCIG Financial Statements’ recently tabled in the House of Assembly. The report also lists a slew of other financial blunders. Last month, the PDM said the Government needs to deal with the “rip-off” that is InterHealth Canada, tackle healthcare costs, hold a

symposium to discuss the economy and other issues, consider the alternatives given by the Opposition and others, market the country, move away from the “lazy and noninnovative” approach, refinance the debt and listen to the people. In a press statement on Thursday (May 15), the Opposition Leader said the plan that they presented to the Government is a sound and well thought out one. “We were pleased that the Ministers did take the time to listen and we believe that the plan was received in the spirit it was submitted.” She said they are looking forward to further dialogue on the issue with relevant persons and are committed

Three robberies in two days DOZENS of personal items and a quantity of cash was stolen during three separate robberies in Providenciales on Tuesday and Wednesday (Mat 13 and 14). A cash register, cash, a 26 inch television, a black laptop, a brown Digicel bag containing a Samsung phone, a pair of Cartier reading glasses, a pair of black Ray Ban shades and male and female clothing were taken. A police press release provided no further information on the incidents. There were also three incidents of malicious damage to property, three incidents of abstracting

electricity and one incident of motor vehicle interference. The press release stated that police officers caught a man in the process of removing several auto parts from two vehicles. He was arrested and is presently assisting police with their investigation. Anyone with any information on these crimes can call CrimeStoppers on 1-8008477 or use the CrimeStoppers online reporting page www. crimestoppers.tc. Information will be treated in the strictest of confidence.

to working in the best interest of the country. “We were also pleased to have met with Alex Musson, the Debt Restructure Strategist. This meeting comes ahead of a proposed meeting on the sovereign rating exercise scheduled for next week.” Meanwhile, further discussions were set to be held on Friday (May 16) by the Ministry of Finance with members of the House of Assembly, the private sector and other stakeholders in Grand Turk. The discussion is intended to focus on the Government’s tax rationalisation strategy, the business sector in the TCI and the credit rating exercise which the Government hopes to have done soon. The PDM leader said her party hopes that following the meetings, they will have greater insight into the Government’s plans for the country. “We believe that these meetings should also aid in the preparation for the budget session in the absence of the Financial Strategy and Policy Statement (FSPS) and other critical consultations that could have been useful.” She further observed that this is the party’s first opportunity to meet for open discussions with all stakeholders. (DI)

Police to hold public meetings FOR the first time this year residents have the opportunity to speak to police officers in a public forum on the topics of crime and policing. Over the coming month Police Commissioner Colin Farquhar and several of his senior officers will host town hall meetings across the country. The forum will not only allow the force to hear public concerns and opinions but will also help them to form a new strategic plan. The three year plan will coincide with the financial year, rather than the calendar year like the 2009-2014 plan, to allow it to integrate with the budget. A press release from the police stated: “This new policing plan will be based on the police budget because it is recognised that the

budget is needed to implement the policing plan after consultation with community needs and expectations.” The first town hall meeting is slated to take place at the Regatta Village in South Caicos on Monday, May 19 at 5pm. On Wednesday, May 21, a meeting will be held at the Community Centre in Middle Caicos from 10am. That same day in North Caicos a meeting will take place at Adelaide Oemler Primary School from 3pm. In Grand Turk the town hall meeting will be held at Dillon Hall from 5pm on Thursday, May 29. There will be four meetings held in Providenciales which will all take place at 6pm on Friday, May 23, at Maranatha HS Auditorium in Blue Hills, on Tuesday, May

27, at the Community Centre in Five Cays, on Friday, May 30, at the Gustarvus Lightbourne Sports Centre and on Tuesday, June 3, at the Tropicana Auditorium in Grace Bay. “Please pass this information along to all of your local membership groups, friends, neighbours and family. All are welcome and encouraged to attend,” the release read. “Commissioner Colin Farquhar and his staff look forward to discussing your concerns and opinions relating to crime and policing in the various communities Any questions regarding these meetings can be directed to the police on 941-4448 or public relations officer Audley Astwood at audley. astwood@tcipolice.tc.

A Weekly News column that puts you on the spot for your opinions on the issues of the day

Gov’t lost millions

be uncollectible?

Where are the watchdogs?

ABOUT $26 million in unpaid revenue was owed to the Government at the end of the 2012/2013 financial year, the Weekly News revealed last week. But according to a document leaked to press much of it is likely to have been uncollectable because of huge inconsistencies in public accounts. What are your thoughts on this monumental mishap? Who should be held accountable?

Who is responsible?

Scandalous! These politicians are spineless and uncaring. Guys move around your constituencies, you may have a change of heart about implementing payroll tax. Go collect these monies and if not tell us who was responsible for this foul-up and if still employed by TCIG, retire them in the public interest.

Mismanagement

This is the second year of this administration and the 11th year since the Progressive National Party (PNP) took over bringing their folks into the civil service including those that handle financial matters. They are carrying false receivables as an asset to make the books look better. Three and a half years of interim government tried in vain to figure out this mess. This is simple cash accounting. Put beans in the jar then take them out as you spend them. From 2003 to 2009 and 2012 to 2014 we have never seen a budget on time or followed. The Commission of Inquiry revealed the PNP could not balance their own cheque books. They forgot to apply for the land their headquarters sits on. It is called mismanagement of the people’s resources. Everywhere you look from broken developments to the overpriced hospital and healthcare. Millions in Crown land squandered. We are simply and totally bankrupt and have been this way since before the 2007 election. That just made it much worse - 11 voters in North and Middle, 17 voters in Grand Turk North, 30 voters in Long Bay, the Bight and the unbelievable voters of South Caicos need to be held responsible.

Apologies needed

The Government went through great lengths to say that the Opposition was being reckless. Four ministers launched an attack. Donhue, Rufus, Washy and Akierra should apologise to the people of this country. They said that it could not be over $20 million. I can bet they will blame this on the Brits as well as is their song now and say it

is probably all uncollectable. Even if the Government collected one quarter of that they can help. The Government should have dealt with an arrears list since they came to office and now have a clean list. This should be produced monthly by all ministries. This list exists and yet I heard Washy and Akierra say that they are doing research on the numbers and could not answer questions. What are these people doing? They are introducing taxes left and right and not trying to get a true list of arrears.

Make it public

First let me say, do not take a cent out of my pay before collecting what is owed to the Government first. If the people who owe say they don’t have any money, make them pay in manpower build more schools, a clinic and police and fire station in three more communities. And if the Finance Minister was half good at the job, he would do his best to have these funds collected, unless of course he also owes the Government and wants to hide that. All the tax we are paying, there should be a public website on what the funds are being spent on. After all it is our money so we have a right to know.

Regional problem

Try $500 million in real property tax each year in non-collected monies in the Bahamas! This seems to be a serious problem in small city-states where everybody knows everybody. Everybody is giving their friends, families and lovers a break while the nation goes broke because of taxes not collected. The Bahamas government is currently running a deficit of about $300 to $400 million each year for the last 30 years! Clearly, we in the Bahamas do not have the answer. I guess it is the curse of small city states. We give ‘our boys’ a break.

No chance of change

It is consistent with the Government to continue to burden the honest while the

dishonest get away with it. The expats have to toe the line because of the threat of being kicked off the island and continue to pay to keep the Government running. Nepotism and the British lack of backbone will ensure this never changes.

Old agreements

The Government is probably owed this amount in unpaid monies by developers’ agreements into the education fund. If monies owed were put towards its intended purpose, how much stronger would our educational system be?

File bankruptcy

The folks that created this mess were reelected so it must be the voters that are responsible. They knew that Washy was a wash out as a financial manager and Rufus has no experience except at the supper table of his daddy who could never win as a PNP. File bankruptcy, throw out the National health Insurance Plan and put Sharlene in charge. At least you will be back on the road to straightening out the mess.

Nothing new

This revelation of the public accounts being in a horrible mess is nothing new – months ago we heard of huge numbers of dollars in bank balances being written off because the absence of accurate bank reconciliations over a number of years could not verify the account balances, as well as a very high dollar value of staff advances being written off because nobody had any idea which had been repaid and which had not! Now we are told of some $1 million in business licence fees being written off as uncollectible. A business licence is renewed only when the renewal fee is paid, so how can the fee

Not exactly sure how these huge messes can go on, year after year, in spite of the Government apparently having an internal audit function, unless it is as inefficient as the departments it is auditing. How could any conscientious accounting department(s) allow the accumulation of such a huge pile of unrecorded bills that a large part of the loan we are now repaying was to settle them? Where is the vaunted Public Accounts Committee, and why does it apparently sit still when the various departments either present no information at all, or provide details which are hopelessly inaccurate? Can you imagine any private sector company staying in business under these conditions? Or tolerating such abysmal performance from its employees? While many of these write-offs are legacy issues from previous Governments, every couple of years seems to see another set of nightmares surface in this regard, so how can we have any confidence that the underlying problems are not still ongoing? It is indeed difficult to be receptive to the Government’s current pleas for additional sources of revenue when it displays such a terrible quality of stewardship over the funds it has previously been given.

We need answers

Is it a business or is it a joke? In the private sphere we are held accountable for everything. There are checks and balances and there are policies that are adhered to in the world of business. The same must be expected of our Government. When I hear things like this, it leads me back to the question of what will happen to all these potential $$ that will be garnered from more taxation of citizens. If the funds are not managed correctly, will another request be made five to 10 years down the road to stop another gap? It is time for serious business in every aspect of national life. We get appraised and we are accountable in private businesses and it is time for the same level to be maintained in the Government. Will someone be held accountable? Will there be immediate measures that will be put into place to prevent this from happening in the future or will we continue to go on hoping that someone, anyone provides the answers for these issues.

Department. The Ministry of Health and Education spent and excess of $3.4 million on various projects, or $1.8 million over their total budget. The Ministry of Government Support Services (GSS) was the next highest excess spender, reaching a huge $1.8 million overspend on projects or $1 million after ministry savings. Other big spenders included the police, the Ministry of Border Control and Labour, and the Ministry of Finance, Tourism and Trade. There were also five departments that spent a total of $465,544 and did not have any budget allocations at all. They were the police AntiDrugs Unit, the Police Marine Branch, the Immigration Services Unit, the GSS Works Programme and the Port Authority. “Chief Financial Officer approval was not provided for the five ministries and departments that did not have budget allocations but had expenses posted to accounts,” the Auditor General wrote. “Further, funds control mechanisms were not in place to prevent the programmes and accounts from being utilised by the ministries and departments.” WHAT WAS BOUGHT? Of the overspend a large amount was went to excess recurrent expenditure including personnel costs - $1.4 million, maintenance expenses - $1 million, civil recovery expenses - $2.3 million, and hospital provisional charges – $895,000. In addition expenditure totalling $1.7 million was incurred against 86 accounts within various ministries and departments that did not have any budget allocation. The largest of these was for more than $300,000 of Government cash, with five others above $100,000. At the time of the report the expenditure incurred against accounts without budget was not approved by the House of Assembly. All this took place despite funds controls mechanisms being in place to prevent the ministries and departments from spending against accounts without budgetary provision. The audit report explained that the cause of these accounting mistakes was that ordinances and regulations were not adhered to. It said that there was a lack of management oversight, and ministries and departments had prepared faulty budgets. There was no training on budgetary preparation and control and funds control mechanisms were not employed to prevent excess expenditure

against accounts with no budget. The report advised: “A proper audit trail should be kept of expenditure in excess of that budgeted and regular monitoring of over expenditure done so that the correct allocations are made to the budget holder’s department on a timely basis. “This helps ensure that mispostings and other adjustments are made within the accounting year and true expenditures not properly authorised are addressed.” HOW IT WORKS The Appropriation Ordinance is the limit by which ministries and departments may spend. Once the ordinance is approved by the House of Assembly and sanctioned by the Ministry of Finance by general warrant then spending can legally take place. The accounting officers in various ministries are responsible for managing and controlling expenditure and follow various legal guidelines on public finances which were enacted in 2012. Prior to these laws, the officers would follow best practices and financial management company SmartStream’s requirements. The newly enacted laws require accounting officers to provide efficient controls and audit for Government transactions. Where the excess expenditure cannot be met by a transfer of funds from within the budget then provision for supplementary funds is sought. An application must be made to the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Finance and submitted to the minister for evaluation. If approved the amount will be included in the ministry’s supplementary estimates and submitted to the House of Assembly for appropriation. “No action shall be taken by any accounting officer which creates a commitment on public funds before the House of Assembly approval is obtained.” However at the end of the financial year if any cash has been spent in excess of the amount appropriated or for a purpose which no money has been appropriated it should be included in a statement of excess. The relevant minister should lay the statement before the House of Assembly which will refer it to the Public Accounts Committee (PAC), and send it to the Governor. The PAC should then report this back to the House of Assembly within six months when members will decide if it is accepted and the excess amount written into a Supplementary Appropriation Bill. (RB)

Crown land in popular tourist spot reserved for cultural HQ AN AREA of Crown land close to some of Providenciales’ largest hotels has been identified as the new location for a cultural headquarters and public park. The plot will not only become the permanent home to the popular Island Fish Fry event but will also be the site of a new Tourist Board and Culture Department building. Located in Grace Bay close to Beaches Key West Village and the TCI Cultural Market, it will provide a central location for cultural events. On Wednesday (May 14) during a meeting at the House of Assembly in Grand Turk, Cabinet “approved in principle” that the Crown land be reserved in the Grace Bay area and granted on licence to the Tourist Board. According to a press release on Thursday (May 15) the land will be allocated following completion of Crown land and public financial management procedures. The general location of the site was confirmed in a later interview with the board’s Director Ralph Higgs. “We have been working with the Government to find a permanent home for the Fish Fry and to have that venue developed in keeping with our brand,” he explained. “This is obviously good news

for the TCI Tourist Board, for TCI tourism, for TCI culture and TCI heritage. “We’re looking forward to mobilising and moving the process of developing this parcel of land to showcase our tourism, our culture and our heritage at the soonest possible opportunity, funds being available.” He said he was not able to give a timeframe of exactly when the development process would take place. “However I can say that my office will spare no effort to see that this comes about in an expeditious fashion.” Higgs said that a new building needed to be built for the Tourist Board and Culture Department to enable both offices to expand. “Tourism is our number one industry and will only grow from strength to strength so we must think about the future and in that parcel of land we hope to build a modern facility that will incorporate adequate space for the promotion and preservation of our heritage and culture.” He also spoke of a new public park being created to showcase cultural events such as the Island Fish Fry. Higgs added that the Tourist Board would be “fully cognisant” of all

the hotels and residential properties around the area and would select appropriate events to showcase. TCI’s weekly food and music extravaganza, the Island Fish Fry, faced closure in March after Kathleen Wood, the Director of the Department of Environment and Maritime Affairs (DEMA), sent an angry letter to the Tourist Board. In it she claimed that the popular Thursday evening event was ruining the environment around the Children’s Park in the Bight with excessively loud noise, grease dumping, and litter. She also said that they had not come up with a large portion of the rent payments for the land since the event began in January 2013 – leaving them close to $20,000 in arrears. Wood went on to demand that the Tourist Board immediately seek a new home for the Fish Fry and vacate the park. However Premier Rufus Ewing later insisted that the park would remain the event’s home until another permanent location could be found. Higgs told the Weekly News this week that all problems had been fully addressed and the new location will accommodate the large numbers of attendees that it often attracts. (RB)

PDM wants biometrics surveillance law for TCI SHADOW Minister for Environment and Home Affairs, Goldray Ewing will on Monday (May 19) present a motion for a law governing biometric surveillance to be introduced in the Turks and Caicos in the fight against crime. Ewing told the Weekly News on Thursday (May 15) that the motion comes long on the heels of a question asked in parliament in April 2013, about the police force’s crime fighting tools when crime was escalating in the country at the time. “We asked them about finger printing laws and surveillance laws and they said that they had no appetite for that at the time. “But after the police commissioner came out with the statistics for last year, I decided that we wouldn’t leave it up to the Government or to the police to determine what type of tools they need to fight crime,” Ewing said. He added that the decision was made to take the proposal to the house and let members recommend that the laws be put in place. “If they choose not to use it, once the laws are in place, then it’s a different matter. But we must give them the tools to work with so that they would be very effective in fighting crime.” Biometrics is the science and technology of measuring and analysing biological data. In information technology, biometrics refers to technologies that measure and analyse human body characteristics, such as DNA, fingerprints, eye retinas and irises, voice patterns, facial patterns and hand measurements for authentication purposes. Authentication by biometric verification is becoming increasingly common in corporate and public security systems, consumer electronics and point of sale (POS) applications. In addition to security, the driving force behind biometric verification has been convenience. If the motion is supported and the law drafted and passed, the next step, Ewing said, would be to set up an information bureau, responsible

for the gathering and safeguarding of such sensitive information. He said that such a department would not take a lot of money to put in place. However, Ewing said if one wants to consider costs as a restriction to its implementation, what should be in the forefront of everyone’s mind are the safety of the populace and the reputation of the country, especially given its tourism industry. “So the actual costs shouldn’t come into effect, and it would take a while to get the bill together – I don’t see that happening right now. “If we petition the Attorney General Chambers to go ahead with the document, at least they would be ahead of the curve when it comes to us being forced to use some of these methods, especially in the financial industry, like banking.” He said if the banks were to ask the Government to legally use fingerprinting and voice scanning for people to access their accounts, the Government cannot give them that okay because there are no laws to govern or regulate that sort of thing. He added that he could see the financial industry requesting that information, because the world is going in that direction. Speaking to the information bureau, Ewing said it would be preferable and appropriate that such a unit not fall directly under the police force as more than just the force would use it.

“It would be there for all law enforcement agencies; they would have to go through a separate channel to access people’s information. “You would have an information commissioner who would be in charge of protecting sensitive information.” When asked what the police can do in the interim to aid in its crime fighting efforts, the shadow minister suggested that a policy decision be taken to standardise close circuit television used by businesses. He explained: “A lot of businesses and public places around here have up cameras, but they are not of any high resolution. “Let’s take for instance Robbie Been’s murder. The camera picked up someone, but you cannot see anything really on it because it was not a good quality camera being used. “So, it’s almost a waste of time, using this poor equipment to do jobs that you are relying on to prosecute people.” He said regulations should be put in place to request businesses to upgrade their surveillance abilities. “Right now you cannot take video recordings into a court of law to use as exhibits – there is no law on the books for them to do that and the biometrics and surveillance law would allow law enforcement to use these as evidence.” Meanwhile, the Weekly News contacted Police Commissioner, Colin Farquhar to find out just what crime fighting tools the force has at its disposal. He confirmed that the Royal TCI Police Force (RTCIPF) uses the fingerprinting system in detecting crime. “A recent audit of the RTCIPF fingerprint system revealed that the RTCIPF is at or above recognised professional standards,” he added. The commissioner also stated that the force collects and uses DNA evidence in detecting crime. He said the DNA evidence is analysed in the USA and that personnel from the DNA lab have given evidence in TCI courts. (DI)

TCIG reintroduces cadets programme THE TURKS and Caicos Islands Government is looking into the reintroduction of the Cadets Corps programme, after being dormant for quite some time. The Ministry of Education, through the Department of Youth Affairs and the Royal Turks and Caicos Islands Police Force are making final preparations for its reintroduction on Tuesday, May 27. The launch will take place simultaneously at 3.30pm at the HJ Robinson High School, the Raymond Gardiner High School, the Clement Howell High School and the Marjorie Basden High School. The corps is expected to play an

essential role in the lives of the youth by exposing them to training in land and marine navigation, military knowledge and policing duties. This aims to teach them discipline, responsibility and adventure and instil the qualities of leadership, patriotism, volunteerism and virtue. Prior to the commencement of basic training, instructors will be trained in methods of instruction, drill instruction, leadership training and the responsibility for children and young people. This is aimed at preparing the instructors to effectively facilitate the training of new recruits. Students who want to enrol

in the Cadet Corps can obtain an application form from the principals of the schools listed above. Applications will be processed on a first come basis due to the limited number of spaces that are available. Application forms must be signed by a parent or guardian before submission. Completed forms should be submitted to the respective principals no later than Wednesday, May 23. Further information about the programme can be obtained from Lt Colonel Ennis Grant on 231-1498 or Nixon Dickenson, senior program officer in the Department of Youth Affairs, Ministry of Education, on 338-5101.

Education minister to explain missing $19m – But not until parliament next week ANSWERS on the $19 million unpaid revenue to the Ministry of Education and inaccuracies in accounts will be provided early next week, Akierra Missick assured press on Tuesday (May 13). The public will be given further information on the huge amounts of missing cash and why it has not been collected during the questions section of the House of Assembly meeting in Grand Turk. Last week the Weekly News revealed that about $26 million in unpaid revenue was owed to the Government at the end of the 2012/2013 financial year. But according to an audit report obtained by press much of it is likely to have been uncollectable because of huge inconsistencies in public accounts. The ‘Auditor General’s Report on the 2012/2013 TCIG Financial Statements’ highlighted the largest discrepancy as the reporting of ‘Contributions towards special school’ which differed a massive $7 million. The Ministry of Health and Education reported that it was owed $12.2 million while the department records showed missing payments of $19.3 million. The Deputy Premier and Minister of Education, Youth, Sports and Culture told the

Ministry of Education Akierra Missick

Weekly News in an email that she was unable to respond to any questions on the issue as she had not yet seen the report. She explained that she has asked for the original document and will speak further on the unpaid revenue when she has received it. “Special school? There was a similar question on the House of Assembly agenda,” she explained. “I was unable to respond as the data was incomplete given the questions were delivered to the TCIG members of the House of Assembly late. “The House of Assembly is next week and I’ll respond then.” The minister did not accept offers from the Weekly News to provide a copy of the report before press time. Minister of Finance Washington Misick also told the newspaper that he would be producing a comprehensive response to the report’s findings within the next week. (RB)

Top female politicians to attend regional meeting THREE of the TCI’s leading female political figures are attending a regional parliamentary conference next week. Deputy Premier Akierra Missick, Leader of the Opposition Sharlene Cartwright Robinson and Lydia Butterfeld, Deputy Clerk to the House of Assembly will all be jetting off to the Bahamas to take part. The two day meeting of the Commonwealth Women Parliamentarians (CWP) regional branch is being held in Nassau from May 22 to 23. There will be representatives from many Caribbean countries congregating under the theme ‘Women: The voice, the vote, the victory.’ Cartwright Robinson will moderate one session during the second day of the meeting entitled: ‘The state of the region: The way forward.’ She will manage the discussions from the floor and summarise the contributions. “I look forward to sharing in this experience again as a delegate. I was

able to attend a meeting of the CWP in 2000 as an observer and benefitted greatly from the encounter. “It is always good to hear of the issues other women face and to plan the way forward as to how we can make greater contributions particularly in our individual countries and our region.” The CWP was founded by women delegates at the 1989 plenary conference so women at future conferences could discuss ways to increase female representation in parliament. They also hoped to work towards the mainstreaming of gender considerations in all Commonwealth Parliamentary Association (CPA) activities and programmes. In 2004, the group was formally recognised in the CPA constitution and its elected chairperson added to the CPA executive committee. The CPA is an organisation of British origin which works to support good governance, democracy and human rights.

Global tax transparency standard for TCI

FINANCE Minister, Washington Misick has announced that the Turks and Caicos Islands is ready to comply with a major international tax transparency agreement. The announcement came by way of a Government press statement on Thursday, May 15. TCI financial institutions must soon register with the United States Internal Revenue Service (IRS) as Foreign Financial Institutions (FFI) and obtain a global intermediary identification number under a model 1 IGA. Attorney General Rhondalee Braithwaite-Knowles stated: “Tax transparency is perhaps the

hottest topic for conversation and implementation in the global financial sector. “Having met the initial standard we will work on regulations to ensure compliance through an effective legal framework.” While Acting Governor, Anya Williams pointed to the leading role the UK and its overseas territories have taken in combating tax evasion in the offshore financial services industry; a major international issue. She stated: “In an effort to prevent the loss of tax revenues, countries have agreed to share tax information with their treaty partners governed by a standard that protects the rights

and safeguards of tax payers and the reporting agents. We are committed to these standards in the Turks and Caicos.” The UK IGA was signed in November 2013, and the US IGA with the TCI is now ready to be signed, the release said. The Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) was enacted in 2010 by the United States’ Congress as part of the Hiring Incentives to Restore Employment (HIRE) Act. It requires foreign financial institutions to report to the IRS, information about financial accounts held by US taxpayers, or by foreign entities in which US taxpayers hold a substantial ownership interest.

There are two versions of the USA model agreement - a reciprocal version and a nonreciprocal version. Both versions establish a framework for reporting by financial institutions of certain account information to their respective tax authorities, followed by automatic exchange of such information. They also address the legal issues that had been raised in connection with FATCA, and simplify its implementation for financial institutions. Commendations were handed out Permanent Secretary of the Finance Ministry Athenee Harvey, the Attorney General, Director of the Exchange of Information Unit Henry Saunders and Kenisha Bacchus of

Revised 2014/2015 budget sent to UK on Thursday for approval New dates for non-profit MEMBERS of Cabinet on Wednesday (May 15) approved a revised budget for financial year 2014/2015 and agreed that it should be forwarded to UK ministers for approval. This was done on Thursday, May 15, Minister of Finance Washington Misick told this publication. The revised budget reflects changes to existing and new revenue streams, a post Cabinet update from the Governor’s office stated. The press release also gave details of other matters that were addressed by Cabinet this past week. Cabinet confirmed its intention to create a National Revenue Authority (NRA) and directed the Boards of the National Insurance Board (NIB) and the National Health Insurance Board (NHIB) to collaborate with the Ministry of Finance to establish the authority. The NRA will bring together the collection and compliance functions of the NIB and the NHIB in one authority. Discussions were also held on the NHIB payment arrears and potential solutions that are available. The members also discussed the procurement waivers granted for the period January to March 2014 as per section 21 of the Public Procurement Ordinance 2012. The waivers relate to the urgent procurement of equipment for the Providenciales morgue and emergency rescue works to the coral at Northwest Point, Providenciales; Advice was given to the Acting Governor, Anya Williams, who chaired the session, to approve the drafting of amendments to Regulation 10 of the Banking Regulations which were made pursuant to section 38 of the Banking Ordinance. The amendments will change references to 'the Governor' to 'the

Commission'. Williams was also advised to approve the drafting of amendments to the National Honours and Awards Ordinance as per the recommendations of the National Honours and Awards Committee. The amendments make provision for the following awards - The Order of National Hero, The Order of Turks and Caicos Islands, Patriotic Award, Meritorious Award, Long Service Medal, and National Young Achievers Medal. The Director of Environment and Maritime Affairs presented an information report to Cabinet. It dealt with the potential environmental, economic and social impacts associated with commercial scale shrimp farming. Approval was given for the appointments to the Telecommunications Board for 2014/15. The new appointees are Heather Allen-Greene as chairman, Terrence Robinson as deputy chairman, Andre Garneau as member, Shaveena Been as member, Herbert Ingham as member, Pedro Ariza as member, Permanent Secretary of GSS as exofficio member and secretary exofficio member. Cabinet also approved several appointments to Water and Sewerage Board for 2014/15. These are the Permanent Secretary of GSS as chairman, chief environmental health officer as ex-officio member, Director Pwd as ex-officio member, Director of Planning as ex-officio member, Director of Environment and Coastal Resources as exofficio member, chief economist as ex-officio member, energy and utilities commissioner as secretary, and Benjamin Harvey and Lydia Handfield as members.

the Financial Services Commission, for their hard work in achieving the milestone for the Islands’ Financial Services industry. The TCI now joins other UK overseas territories, such as the Cayman Islands and the British Virgin Islands, in practically demonstrating that the territories are not tax havens, but are, rather, open, transparent and well governed. Meanwhile, in a related move, the TCI Government has extended its deadline for submissions to its consultation on beneficial ownership information to 30 June 2014. Interested parties are encouraged to contribute to exercise, the outcome of which will have an impact on the future of the financial services industry in TCI.

organisations to comply with the law NON-PROFIT Organisations (NPOs) in the Turks and Caicos Islands, which have not yet done so, have been granted an extension to register their details with the Financial Services Commission and to make the required election as companies. The NPO Committee wanted a nine month extension from the March 31 deadline, but was unsuccessful in securing that length of time. They now have until July 31 for registration as NPOs – this was initially set for October 2013 - and until June 30 for the continuation of elections of existing not for profit companies. The joint announcement by the Financial Services Commission (FSC), the Governor’s Office and the Attorney General’s Chambers was made via a public notice disseminated through the Governor’s Office earlier this week. The bodies are required to register and to continue their election status as NPOs under the Companies (Amendment) Ordinance 2012 and the Non-Profit Regulations 2013; or what is singularly known as the NPO legislation. According to the joint statement, the TCI Government is reviewing the provisions of the NPO legislation with a view to maintaining the financial action task force’s recommendations concerning money laundering and the financing of terrorism and proliferation financing. It noted that the recommendations set the management and accountability standards for NPOs, while ensuring that the requirements are not disrupting the good work of the NPOs for the people of the TCI.

“We recognise the good work of NPOs across these Islands,” Attorney General Rhondalee BraithwaiteKnowles said. She added that compliance with the legislation is designed to ensure that NPOs in the Islands are not being used for money laundering, the financing of terrorism and proliferation financing as well as maintaining public confidence in the NPO sector. “I would ask all NPOs to register with the NPO supervisor, Paul Coleman at the Financial Services Commission as soon as possible to ensure that there is not a bottleneck of paperwork in June and July.” Full details and the application to register are available on the TCI Financial Services Commission’s website. Since last year, the NPOs have been fighting to have their collective voices heard on the requirements of the legislation, with little to no avail. Ian McLeod, member of the CrimeStoppers TCI and the Hotel and Tourism Association has been particularly outspoken via email correspondence to the Attorney General about the issues the NPO committee have with the legislation. He told the Weekly News on Thursday (May 15) that some of the requirements are far more stringent than for companies that operate for profit. “I am not aware of a single nonprofit in this country that is not opposed to money-laundering and financing global terrorism, I think it is a bit of a stretch for the Government or the Caribbean Financial action task force to think that… any of the non-profits operating here are going

to do that. “I mean it is a real reach. We understand the kind of world we live in, but it’s a real reach to suggest that.” He said no one from any of the NPOs here was ever consulted on the legislation and as such, the drafters simply do not know how non-profits in the TCI operate. “And the nature of the small country that we have got is – there are many people who are not just involved in one organisation, they are involved with two or more and it’s by virtue of people who just want to help out the community at large. Virtually all are volunteers.” McLeod added that the vast majority of NPOs in the TCI have nothing to do with the financial industry, so they cannot understand why they have to report to the FSC. He said there are other existing Government bodies to which NPOs could report. Some of the changes require heavier registration fees and an audit if the NPO has assets of $250,000 or more among others, McLeod stated. He said several of the NPOs’ physical structures alone are worth more than that amount and requiring them to pay for an auditor is “nonsense”. “It’s a needless expense for people who are just trying to do good; it’s not needed. Our position all along is that there are graduated scales in the international body for NPOs that are potentially at risk,” he said. Under the NPO legislation, all NPOs must be registered to ensure that they are open, accountable, transparent and are being used for the purposes for which they were set up. (DI)

Government, taxes and the economy Dear Editor, Your Opposition leader is correct in noting that TCI is the envy of the Caribbean because it has stayed relatively tax free. Actually, it is one of the few if not the only one in the world. If you own a business, and you are successful through years of hard work, you hire people to help you. You may start other businesses, and eventually hire people to help you there as well. You are a creator of jobs. You pay taxes on your successful businesses; and, you pay for your own vacation time and your own needs. If the Government is smart and is helping you to grow they should take care that the roads to your businesses are paved and maintained for you who pays the taxes through licences, fees, duty and so on. They should want for you to grow and create more jobs so other people will have money and start businesses. This reduces the need for more government revenue which means taxes. Government says the people need jobs and so the Government say they will create jobs. But the Government doesn’t make money, it collects and spends money. The more the Government spends,

the more money they need to collect from the people. The less money people pay in fees, licences, duty and taxes the more they have to spend at local businesses. The Government has a civil service for the important things like border control, police, roads and schools. But if the Government is efficient (and not for the profit of the public servants), it only needs a small amount to run a small country effectively. You pay for the people who have government jobs. You pay their salary, their vacations, their bonuses, their travel, miscellaneous expenses and so on. You will notice they work far fewer hours than people who own their own business. The Government doesn’t produce a product they can sell to pay for these jobs – the Government taxes you for every new job they add. The more civil servants you have, the more you have to work to pay to support them. The Government is a creator of taxes. The TCI does not need new taxes and should be able to vastly reduce what taxes and fees they do have. There is a lot of talk about the need for increasing revenue. Little

consideration is given to how to be more efficient, to reduce expenses, to take the burden off the people. Every dollar spent in taxes is money businesses and working people can’t spend on what they want – to grow the economy based on what they think they need. Here are several ways to move away from taxation and back to smart governing. Fortis TCI - agreements were made that brought one of the highest costs of electricity in the world and certainly in the Caribbean to TCI. All the money, a huge excess, that goes to pay such a high price is money taken away from the people and the businesses to spend in their own pursuits. The country is having its wealth stolen and given to others. Agreements can be changed. The Government should end that agreement. The people should demand it. The hospitals are a financial anchor threatening to drown you. The TCI people were involved but the British government did not provide proper oversight either. The contract should have been cancelled. The British government didn’t want to pay the large penalty

fee, so they put the monkey on the back of the TCI. Then a 12.5 per cent interest rate added - yet another monkey on your back. This is why you are being threatened with taxes. Refuse to pay them, nullify the contract. Support the people and businesses that are creating the jobs. Keep their taxes low and few. Realise this is especially necessary on the family islands where businesses are harder to create. As more jobs become available through businesses, slowly reduce the number of civil servants. Make it unnecessary ever again to be threatened with income (payroll) taxes, value added tax or property taxes. Free the people and the creators of jobs to keep their own money to

spend and invest as they see diligent. Let businesses transition excess civil servants into jobs that aren’t paid for by you. You’ll have a surplus and more. And stay the envy of the world. Everyone who wants to see the Turks and Caicos Islands thrive, to see it make their people richer not poorer, should educate themselves and let the Government and those running for government know what they want and need. One good way to do that (and all leaders should do so) is to begin this education with a book by Henry Hazlitt entitled ‘Economics in one lesson’. Cindi Welch, Pumpkin Bluff, North Caicos

COMMENTARY

Choo choos and credibility

I ADMIT to a love of trains, steam powered! My great uncle was a train engineer; he ran a slow service train in the steel mills of Cleveland. While he chugged along in the mills uncle dreamed of driving the high speed passenger trains of that era. As a youngster I accompanied Uncle Bob in his 1939 Chrysler to a small whistle stop station to watch the 20th Century Limited roar by. It was the late 1940s. Passenger trains lost money when highways and planes provided cheaper and faster long distance USA transportation. Now Asians are showing the way with new high speed trains. Creature comforts and competitive pricing predict a return to train travel.

Nothing will ever replace the ‘choo choo’ sound of those fossil fuel driven monsters of the last century though. The point is that returning to what worked in the past by incorporating a modern flare is something we need to seriously consider. This also applies to politics. After the short and lacklustre administrations of Oswald and Washy we got busy under Derek and chugged along growing the TCI economy. Low taxes and a welcoming people brought in US dollars. Our US military base from the 1940s and JAGS had given us the US dollar and jump started Grand Turk. Club Med was joined by Beaches and big resorts were off and running to realise the potential of Grace Bay and the Caicos Islands.

SPACE IS LIMITED!

Thanks to Derek for the head start. What followed was a train wreck. From 2003 to 2009 we took upscale mentality to disastrous levels. Never mind that today Beaches is advertising on USA TV fat 65 per cent discounts on summer pricing. Discounts that could continue in a warm winter? The family plan curiously called the Government, still talks upscale everything. They have a steak and lobster mentality in a wiener and beans economy. Canned corn beef and rice now becomes Sunday dinner for the unemployed, underemployed and poor single mothers and widows. Escalate the cost of employee work permits and business licences then employers raise prices on canned corn beef! We now have to pay back the debt

using the same family that created it - a family with a negative credit rating. A couple of serious bankruptcies and the obligation of a billion dollar payback on healthcare. They want the Opposition to cosign their new loan because only PDM has a stellar credit rating. Fat chance! Waiting for her chance to lead

is TCI’s answer to Thatcher, Merkle and Eugenia Charles - our Sharlene. She understands how the ‘choo choo’ worked and how to adapt it to today’s world. Up through the ranks her law degree serves her well to do the right thing. The family islands and Grand Turk North need to wake-up, feel the emptiness and who caused it.

PDM remembers its first leader and country’s only named national hero ON MAY 9, the People’s Democratic Party (PDM) and the rest of the country remembered the life and legacy of the Turks and Caicos Island’s first Chief Minister and only national hero. Current leader of the PDM, Sharlene Cartwright Robinson recalled the tragic and sudden demise of the party’s past leader 34 years ago, in a statement to the media. Below is the full text of the Opposition Leader’s memorial: “His name continues to ring in the hearts and minds of many. Today we reflect with a deeply abiding love and profound respect for our former leader and for his vision for a better Turks and Caicos. “We believe that this vision should remain an un-shifting one for us all and we are determined to see a Turks and Caicos with justice,

freedom and equality for all. “As we reflect today on his death, we celebrate his life and call to our remembrance the service and what has now become the legacy of a great man. “Too often rejected and misunderstood, he was guided by selfless desires and a sincere passion that no one could seem to turn off. “He listened to all, encouraged participation by all, even those rejected by society and sidelined because of their youth. “He used education and information as his greatest weapons and never manipulation or divisiveness. He did not seek to have a monopoly on solutions. “A keen, decisive and strong leader faced with many challenges, he discussed the issues for others’ input and contribution. “When our leader spoke he made great attempts to ensure that

AG might challenge appellate court decision in Clyde Robinson case THE ATTORNEY General’s Chambers said it is currently considering whether to appeal a recent appellate court decision not to grant the Crown more time to appeal a land flipping case it lost to former Director of Planning, Clyde Robinson and his ex-wife. The Court of Appeal on Thursday, May 8, handed yet another blow to the Crown when it denied the Civil Recovery Team extra time to appeal Judge Margaret Ramsay-Hale’s November 2013 judgement. In an invited comment via email, AG Rhondalee Braithwaite-Knowles said that they are disappointed with the Court of Appeal decision not to grant the extension of time for service. “[We] are considering an appeal, given the wider impact on the jurisdiction of the court and the restrictions such a decision would place on all appellants in similar circumstances,” she said. No explanations as to what sort of wider impact was proffered, however. Last year, following Judge Ramsay-Hale’s decision, a similar response was released to the media. It stated that the chambers is considering whether to appeal the judge’s decision. That consideration evidently took too long and resulted in the Crown filing for an appeal - through Queen’s Counsel, David Phillips who is handling the Crown’s civil

recovery efforts in court - much too late. The judgement was given in November last year and the Crown had 28 days after this to file an appeal. As it stands currently, the Crown’s last option is to petition the Privy Council for a reversal of the appellate court’s decision. Robinson and his ex-wife, Susannah Bishop were accused of flipping land for $1.5 million. The Crown alleged that Robinson acquired land in Long Bay Hills for $70,000 and then transferred it for no consideration to his former wife. Bishop then sold it to Wawa Co Ltd, a company owned by Canadian property developer Stan Hartling for $1.5 million as part of the proposed Shore Club Development. (DI)

everyone understood that there was a role for each person and that the holistic approach was the sum total of one’s understanding of their individual roles for collective gain. “I am certain he felt discouraged, betrayed sometimes by those he trusted and weakened by the battle but he never lost sight of the bigger

picture. “There remain some who seek to soil his name and legacy whilst there remain others who seek to exploit him whilst not grasping the genuineness, sincerity and purity of his actions: actions to better a country and not for self-gain. “We seek to honor our leader’s memory by continuing to be the voice of the voiceless resisting the path of creating spurts of emotive outburst but educating and sharing information in an effort to inspire knowing that the flame once lit with facts and information can and will burn by itself. “I encourage us all to remain consistent and constant in our stance, well informed on the issues and doing everything in our power to resist the path of creating detrimental and destructive divisiveness among the very ones who need to be called into unity for the good of our country. “Our fight today remains real and against some of the same persons that our former leader fought but now regrettably too often against. “In our leader’s spirit, we call on us to search within ourselves, and

see if our actions are building or destroying each other. “Our party holds true to the fact and our former leader’s vision that each one has a part to play and no one is any more important than the other. “We believe that we can in fact change our tomorrow by acting decisively and consistently today. “As we reflect on his death 34 years ago today, we mourn as we did then for a great man who to me was too often misunderstood and misused but remain greatly missed. “We strive each day to find and continue on a path to offer hope to a broken and battered people. “We remain grateful for the life and legacy of this giant of a man and to his family for their support. “Turks and Caicos Islands became a better place because of him and this ought to be the legacy of us all, to leave Turks and Caicos Islands and this world a better place than we met it. “May his memory continue to live on in truth, for our edification and inspiration and may his soul continue to rest in peace.”

Health Minister thanks TCI’s nurses MINISTER of Health Porsha Stubbs-Smith thanked the country’s nurses for the “great and sometimes thankless service” that they provide this week. International Nurses Day took place on Monday (May 12), the anniversary of infamous nurse Florence Nightingale’s birth. In recognition of the day the minister spoke at length about the worthy profession and expressed her gratitude for nurses’ continued commitment. “Sufficient, adequately trained and motivated health workers are essential for the health of a population (WHO 2006),” she said. “Equitable access to necessary health services of good quality cannot be achieved without an adequate number of appropriately prepared nurses. “As a government, we believe that investing in our local nurses can make a difference to the provision of healthcare in the TCI.” According to the minister the World Health Assembly (WHA), the supreme decision making body of WHO, has repeatedly recognised the essential need for strengthening nursing and midwifery services in achieving better health for individuals,

families and communities. “As the largest group of health professionals, who are the closest and often the only available health workers to the population, nurses have a great responsibility to improve the health of the population as well as to contribute towards achievement of the global development goals. “It is essential that nurses and world leaders focus on the global nursing workforce as a key priority for achieving better health for all,” she stressed. Given the increased burden of chronic non-communicable diseases (CNCD’s) including mental health

disorders and an aging population in the TCI and throughout the world, governments and health professionals are forced to think differently about the provision of healthcare, Stubbs-Smith said. “To make best use of nurses in the health system, we as a government should encourage and support them to perform at their highest potential through the provision of annual scholarships at approved training institutions for nursing education, adequate pay and a safe and healthy environment conducive to work.” She proffered that an educated nurse workforce and a good work environment equals high quality care. “Let me take this time to sincerely thank all nurses, those coming to our shores from abroad and our local nurses for their continued commitment and dedication to the health of our nation. “I would like to also express heartfelt thanks and prayer to God for you; may he continue to bless and strengthen you during this day and always. “I admonish everyone to take time out to express appreciation to a nurse for the great and sometimes thankless service they provide.”

Association members visiting from some 18 countries around the region

TCI hosts meeting for regional aviation handlers BY DAISY HANDFIELD THE CARIBBEAN Aviation Handlers Association hosted one of their meetings in the Turks and Caicos Islands on Friday (May 9). The association brought together many regional aviation handling enterprises to examine their businesses, grow from each other’s experiences and share the different views on how to implement industry changes. The meeting was attended at the Regent Palms conference room in Grace Bay, Providenciales, by some 18 out of the 30 members. There was representation from countries as small as Aruba to bigger Caribbean countries like Jamaica and the Dominican Republic. One of the topics up for discussion was the interconnectivity between the Caribbean countries. Lyndon Gardiner, chairman for local airline InterCaribbean, said that in order for the Caribbean to be successful, regional bodies need to present themselves as a group. “I think it is important to get

together and form one block to promote ourselves not only through tourism, but also for the financial benefits that can be achieved. “We are all small nations with very small budgets. As I said, there is less to export so we have to be very conscience as to how we generate and spend our money. “I think that one of the things that is a good benchmark for how Caribbean integration is how we market ourselves.” Gardiner said that if the groups collectively come together with a budget and each country contributed, they could get more marketing for their dollars. As far as concerns with integration, the chairman said that these countries need to have a connectivity but so far they have not had in the Caribbean the kind of connectivity that lends itself to the progressive integration. “We at InterCaribbean are trying to do our part to try and bridge the gap,” he explained. “We are starting out in the northern Caribbean and eventually we will

extend to the eastern Caribbean, but until we have good connectivity, I think the full integration is going to be a bit difficult to really see the benefits of.” Gardiner said that Turks and Caicos Islands was chosen to host the meeting because it was becoming more and more of an important player in the region. “I think we have good infrastructures in terms of airports and good services in terms of international airlines that are flying in. “I think we have taken a leap and have done a lot more in a short time then a lot of these countries have done so, that is a testament as to how important we are to the region.” InterCaribbean has recently extended travel to Puerto Rico and is also flying within Jamaica. Also attending from the Turks and Caicos Islands was TCA Handling Limited – a full service ground handling company founded in 1992 that operates at Providenciales International Airport.

Oshin Whyte receiving her certification from Dive Provo.

Young Turks and Caicos Islander becomes dive master OSHIN White is one of only a few Turks and Caicos Islanders and even fewer females who have become dive masters in the TCI. Whyte who is 18 years of age, was recently trained and certified as a PADI dive master, by Dive Provo. Oshin first became interested in diving when she completed a Discover Scuba Diving course organised with Dive Provo through her school. She went on to do her Open Water, Advanced, and Rescue Diver Courses prior to starting dive master training.

The qualification is the first professional level qualification in scuba diving and the training is quite intensive. Oshin achieved the qualification through dedication and hard work, at the same time working at Dive Provo where she will continue in her new role until she leaves for college later this year. The staff at Dive Provo congratulated her on the achievement and wished her success. They also encouraged other young Turks and Caicos Islanders to become involved in an industry that draws visitors to this country.

Partners in education improve students’ interview skills EDUCATION experts helped to improve the interviewing skills of students who are preparing to go out into the working world this week. On Tuesday (May 13) the Department of Education hosted a mock interview session for students who were in their final year of the primary education course. The initiative was held at the Community College Providenciales campus before a judging panel of five. The panel was made up of the Director of Education Edgar Howell, principal for the Enid Capron Primary School Rachel Taylor, coordinator for the Education Department in

Providenciales Candice Malcolm, owner of Learn and Lead Yolan Robinson, and lecturer at the college Wilda Smith. Eleven students were interviewed individually and were asked different interviewing questions that would likely come up on a job interview. At the end of the interview, each student was given a grade and feedback as to how they did. Assistant of the vice-president of the Community College and coordinator for the Education Department on Providenciales, Candice Malcolm, told the Weekly News that the partners in education

decided to host this session because they realised that the students’ interviewing skills were very weak. She said that this session was to sensitise the student teachers to the normal procedures that take place

during an interview. “One of the benefits coming out of this is, with the given feedback, hopefully they will go back and evaluate their performance here today and make improvements going

forward. “We looked at our programmes to see how best we can tailor a certain programme to meet this need to clearly develop the entire student teacher.”(DH)

Maranatha High School pupil soars as spelling bee champ BY DAISY HANDFIELD A STUDENT from Maranatha High School was awarded the title of spelling bee champion in this year’s National High School Spelling Bee competition, after hours of thorough spelling. Cristina Toomer outshined pupils from seven other high schools declaring her as the 2014 winner. The National High School Spelling Bee competition took place at the Gustarvus Lightbourne Sports Complex on Thursday (May 15). Placing behind Toomer were Bryana Brown from the British West Indies Collegiate in second and Daniele Walker from the Raymond Gardiner High School in third. The young champ told the media that even prior to competing, she was not at all nervous. “Since the morning before everything began and I was hyped,”

she said. “I was not really nervous actually, there was a peace that was over me and even though throughout the spelling bee it was challenging because some things I raised my eyebrows at, it was good.” She prepared for the competition a month and a half prior to the date of the win. “My coach would help me during the day and she would test me; they were unseen words from her head.” Mother of the winner, Gloria Toomer said that she never lost hope for Cristina and that she knew God was going to favour her. “I am so overwhelmed with joy. I am one of the happiest moms right now that you can find in the Turks and Caicos Islands. “I believed it in her and not only believed in her, I believed in God because the Holy Spirit had witnessed to me to tell her to continue in the spelling because he

brief remarks. The National High School Spelling Bee is an annual feature on the academic calendar which attracts participants from the public and private high schools throughout the country. The objectives of the competition are to encourage students to explore and study words particularly their meaning, diacritical markings and origin, help students to learn and spell words quickly and accurately, help

students to learn and use proper pronunciation and word usage, and provide an environment to promote students’ self-esteem, character development and sportsmanship. Schools that participated this year are the British West Indies Collegiate, HJ Robinson High School, the Holy Family Academy, Maranatha High School, Marjorie Basden High School, Raymond Gardiner High School, TCIPS Comprehensive High School and the Wesley Methodist High School.

Students’ new lunch shed nears completion

CLEMENT Howell High School’s brand new lunch shed is just a few weeks away from completion. By the end of this month the nation’s largest Government high school will be the proud recipient of a brand new eating facility - thanks to Beaches Resort’s philanthropic arm the Sandals Foundation. The project, which is designed to accommodate students while they dine and commune during their lunch hours, has been in the works from the beginning of the

academic year. Principal Gerald Persaud said: “I am very happy that the Sandals Foundation has once again partnered with the Clement Howell High School in building a brand new eating area. “We look forward to seeing the completed project.” The 18 by 40ft structure has already begun its pre-construction phase and has an estimated time of completion date of this May. Beaches public relations officer

Elanor Finfin Krzanowski said: “We are excited and anticipate the completion of the project. “We are very proud of the school and we are committed to continuing our efforts to improve not only the physical infrastructure of institution, but to continue to work alongside the facility to assist with education improvement as well.” One of the students and a member of the construction team - Jean Auguste - shared just how important it was for the pupils to get involved

in the building process. “It’s great to see a big business like Beaches working with students to build something so positive.” He added: “I am very grateful for the Sandals Foundation because there are many times that they give to our school and I am proud that we are allowed to get involved in building the lunch shed.” The lunch shed project is one of the many initiatives Sandals Foundation has been working on in

the Turks and Caicos Islands. Principal Persaud concluded: “This project will not only boost the canteen but will also serve as a multipurpose area which can be used for other meaningful engagements. “I want to express our profound gratitude to the Sandals Foundation for this offer and we hope to continue to partner with them for the development of student growth and success at the Clement Howell High School.”

How does your garden grow

Seven year apple IRONICALLY the seven year apple (Casasia clusiifolia) is neither an apple nor does it take seven years for its fruit to mature. A member of the Rubiaceae family, this leathery denizen of beach fronts manages to flower and form fruit at the same time, which is a good thing because it takes a full year for the fruit to ripen. A slow grower, they are as wide as they are tall reaching up to a height of 15 feet. When it does ripen it is devoured by mockingbirds (and iguanas) that hollow out the tasty fruit and leave a dead skin hanging in the tree. Butterflies such as the tantalus sphinx (Aellopos tantalus) use it as a larval host plant, and the mangrove skipper (Phocides pigmalion) and

others that use it for nectar float around it. You will either find the seven year apple edible or disgusting. In fact, a lot of folks can’t get past the looks of the fruit. The fruit is edible only when black ripe, and then only the pulp, not the seeds. It’s actually a berry the size of a lime. You eat it by poking a hole in the tough rind and sucking out the pulp, (again, don’t eat the seeds, they will

Caribbean sweet potato salad SERVES: 5 INGREDIENTS • 1 large russet potato, peeled and quartered • 1 large sweet potato, peeled and quartered • 1 cup corn • 1 teaspoon prepared Dijon-style mustard • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro • 1 clove garlic, minced • 3 tablespoons canola oil • 1/2 teaspoon salt • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper • 1 cucumber, halved lengthwise and chopped • 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced • 1/4 cup finely chopped peanuts METHOD • Place the russet potato pieces into a large saucepan, and cover with salted water.

This small tree or shrub grows well along the coastline. Although it can’t take sitting in salt water like the mangrove, it does well directly on the coastline where it gets inundated with storm water. It can take full-force hurricane winds and come back with new leaves.

This is a tough plant. Seven year apples have six inch, shiny leaves that curl inward. They are thick, long and oval, and clustered near the branch tips. It has a five-pedalled cluster of white flowers with pink edges that emerge mostly in the spring and early summer, but can be found all year long. Male and female flowers are on different plants. The flowers have a magnificent smell and could easily be used in perfume. Eau de Casasia could be a big seller if the perfumers ever find enough of it. The seeds are prolific and can be propagated easily. Seven year apples grow in partial shade and full sun, but I have only seen them thriving in full

Feet complications related to diabetes Written by a podiatrist friend, Dr Armando Gonzalez

• Once the potatoes are tender, add corn kernels; cook another 30 seconds. • Drain through a colander. Fill the saucepan with cold water, and drop vegetables into water. Cool for five minutes, and drain. • In a large bowl, whisk together mustard, lime juice, cilantro, and garlic. Slowly whisk in oil. Mix in salt and black pepper. • Cut cooled potatoes into one inch cubes, and add to dressing along with cucumber, and red onion. Toss well. • Serve at room temperature or chilled. Toss the peanuts in just before serving.

sun. Their soil must be porous. Sand and rocks are ideal. Our alkaline limestone will do just fine. They survive in the second tier away from a beach. Their drought and salt wind tolerance are high. Planted close together, they grow into a full hedge or screen. They are great as windbreaks near the ocean. Although the fruits are fairly ugly the flowers are showy, and God, that smell! Actually, the trees are closely related to the Gardenia. I think that this evergreen shrub or small tree is one of the Turks and Caicos Islands’ most exceptional native, salt-tolerant plants. It will grow right up to the first dune near the ocean.

COMPLICATIONS of diabetes are very real and if left untreated could lead to amputation of a toe, foot, leg or worst your life. Diabetes when poorly managed will affect the feeling, as well as the blood flow, to your feet and legs. Decreased blood flow and loss of feeling influences the ability to heal a simple cut, scratch or minor infection. Overall it will take longer to heal wounds of any kind. 
 When you let your diabetes go unchecked it will begin to affect the nerves in your feet. This diabetic nerve damage in the medical community is known as neuropathy, which affects the way you feel pain, cold, and heat. Most foot problems occur because of the loss of feeling to your feet. Other causes of foot problems are poor blood flow and changes in the shape of your feet or toes. The easiest solution to prevent diabetic related foot problems is to

manage and take control of your health. Timing is everything. The earlier and sooner you begin to manage your diabetes the better you are in preventing other serious complications. Build your healthcare team. This team begins with you and your primary doctor. Speak to your primary doctor about getting a dietician on board. A good dietician is able to look at your current diet and make simple modifications to help improve the way your body deals with sugar. If you begin to notice changes to your feet and/or legs, ask your primary doctor to add a podiatrist to your team. A good podiatrist is there to help prevent and managed foot complications associated with diabetes. Other healthcare team members include but are not limited to physical therapists, neurologists, dentists,

psychologists, vascular surgeons and eye specialists. 
 A few tips to take home: Do not wait to check your blood sugar level at your primary doctor’s office. You should be checking and logging your blood sugar levels at home regularly. Examine your feet every night. Check your socks and shoes for unusual stains. If anything looks, smells, or feels different do not hesitate to contact your podiatrist or primary doctor immediately. Infection can spread very quickly. Inspect your shoes for rough edges and remove any rocks or insects. Never walk barefoot, especially outside. While the above solutions are easier said than done. It takes a lot of patience to overcome many of life’s obstacles. Just remember that you are not alone and that you are ultimately in control.

Are organic labels the best? MANY cosmetic products are laced with the terms ‘organic’ and ‘all natural’ now. The two terms now have something to do with the misconception out there that all synthetic ingredients are bad and ingredients from the earth are automatically good. If you’re looking to get into the whole natural movement, I am here to save you some time, maybe money and definitely headaches. So what is ‘all natural’? ‘Natural’ ingredients are derived, in whole or in part, from natural sources with no synthetic compounds. Meanwhile ‘organic’ products are supposed to contain only plant-sourced ingredients that are cultivated without the use of synthetic chemicals, irradiation, or pesticides. However, it is always a question as to whether or not these products are made according to the claims about their formulations. If so, does this mean they’re any better for your skin? I am pro-natural because that is what works for my skin. However, I’ve learned that there are ingredients from our green earth that are equally capable of doing just as much damage as you would find with synthetic ingredients. On the flip side for some, synthetics don’t seem to affect their skin’s natural chemistry much. Organic labels aren’t always honest Labels lie. We’ve seen many companies receiving flack for their dishonest claims on international television. However, there is still progress to be made. The American Food and Drug Administration (FDA), being a common example, has a regulatory regime (not to be confused with the actual Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act) that has not seen a change since 1938. Things over the years have become even more complicated as many companies have taken the FDA’s outdated cosmetic standards into their own hands. This is not necessarily a good thing! Additionally, there are many random companies worldwide that set their own guidelines for organic cosmetics. Some even slap a fee with their seal of approval. This means a company can purchase their certification. What are the consequences to all of this? What consequences? Luckily we have those independent bodies cracking down on this issue but again, we still have many more strides to make. I have also learned that an organic ingredient’s source doesn’t determine its safety. If a lemon from North Caicos burns your skin, then a lemon from Florida will more than likely burn your skin, whether it’s grown organically, in a lab, or with all the love, fluff and rainbows in the world. So my point? It’s all about your personal preference, good judgement and a little research. Remember, this is your skin. Don’t allow the current hype fool you into believing that natural is all good, so you must abandon what has been working for you. Some natural products can also do more harm than good!

Dry mouth SUFFERING with a dry mouth is not the same as being thirsty and has different underlying causes. The reason I want to look at the topic of dry mouth is because it can have a negative impact on the health of a patient’s teeth and gums. We need saliva to moisten and cleanse our mouths and help to digest food. Saliva also prevents infection by controlling bacteria and fungi in the mouth and with patients experiencing a dry mouth there is an increased risk of gingivitis (gum disease), mouth infections and fungal infections such as thrush. When we don’t produce enough saliva, our mouth gets dry and uncomfortable. Other symptoms include frequent thirst, sores in the mouth or split skin at the corners of the mouth, cracked lips, a burning or tingling sensation in the mouth or tongue, a red, raw tongue, problems speaking or difficulty tasting, chewing or swallowing and bad breath. There is a range of reasons why

a person may experience dry mouth (xerostomia). These include: -Side effect of certain medications. Dry mouth is a common side effect of many prescription and non-prescription drugs. This includes drugs for depression, anxiety, acne, epilepsy, allergies, and colds, hypertension, asthma and Parkinson’s disease. Dry mouth can also be a side effect of muscle relaxants and sedatives. -Side effect of certain diseases or infections. Dry mouth can be a side effect of medical conditions, including Sjögren's syndrome, HIV, Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes, anaemia, cystic fibrosis, rheumatoid arthritis, hypertension, and stroke. -Side effect of certain medical treatments. Damage to the salivary glands, for example, from radiation to the head or neck area or chemotherapy treatments for cancer, can reduce the amount of saliva produced. -Nerve damage as a result of an

injury or surgery. -Lifestyle. Smoking or chewing tobacco can affect saliva production and aggravate dry mouth. Continuously breathing with your mouth open can also contribute to the problem. There are ways to help deal with the symptoms of dry mouth depending on how severe and uncomfortable it is. If it is caused by your medication it may be worth discussing an alternative drug or dosage with your GP. Other helpful steps include sipping water regularly to help keep the mouth moist, protecting your teeth by brushing with a fluoride toothpaste, and using a fluoride rinse, trying to breathe through your nose (not your mouth) as much as possible. There are also over-thecounter artificial saliva substitutes available or your dentist or doctor could prescribe a medication that stimulates saliva production.

POLICE SAFETY TIPS

Wear your seatbelt WE’VE all heard it before: “Wear your seat belt”. And then the Turks and Caicos Islands Government finally made it law, but some people still don’t want to wear them. Here’s my take on it, as a police officer. First let me tell you how I used to think, prior to being a victim in an automobile accident. Seatbelts felt uncomfortable. If I was well dressed for an event, I only saw seatbelts as a nuisance responsible for wrinkling my wellpressed clothes. But here’s the truth. The more car accidents I see, the more I realise how important it is to wear my seatbelt. I’ve seen people who got injured from minor car accidents, some as low as 35mph. Here’s the scenario: You’re driving down the road minding your own business and another driver pulls right out in front of you, and you hit them. Obviously you slide forward. Two things are going to happen. Your knees are going to hit the bottom of the dash (just under the steering column) and your face is going to slam into the steering wheel (unless

of course you have air bags, and they go off). But airbags won’t protect your knees. And this scenario is just based on lower speeds. At higher speeds however, there are more consequences. The first thing that comes to mind is getting thrown through your windshield. This happens much more than people think, or even realise. Obviously this can mean serious injury, but usually death. I haven’t seen many people survive this type of car accident. I was fortunate. I survived. During my recovery, I had major headaches and over the counter headache pills did nothing for me. Needless to say, he who feels it knows it and my love of wearing seatbelts is not because the law requires it. Another thing that can happen to you is the victim’s wrists will bust,

pushing the bone forward and out, at the wrist. This is from not being restrained by a seatbelt and trying to hold on to the wheel at the point of impact. The momentum however is so strong that the body keeps moving forward, and of course the wrists snap. Wearing a seatbelt of course can prevent these. These are just a few of the injuries associated with not wearing your seatbelt. I think after seeing bodies that were thrown and dismembered from these auto accidents, I was pretty convinced to say the least that everyone in a vehicle should always wear their seatbelts. But only police officers and other first responders normally see these things. Please take our advice, wear your seatbelt.

Winners of the poster competition in consecutive order, along with colleagues

Autism foundation receives $2,000 cheque donation from Provo Water BY DAISY HANDFIELD SEVERAL presentations were made to various organisations by Provo Water Company earlier this week. A brief press conference was held on Wednesday (May 14) at the Provo Water Company headquarters in Providenciales to give the awardees their prizes and make a donation to a selected charity. Every year the company picks a foundation or organisation to donate funds to, and this year the selected organisation was the Hope Foundation for Autism Awareness. The Hope Foundation for Autism Awareness received a cheque for $2,000 from the company to assist the foundation with their pursuit to help children with autism. The manager for water quality at Provo Water, Sherry Bell-Parker presented the cheque to the chairman

for the Hope Foundation, Maxcia Rigby, who said that the money will be put to good use. Every year Provo Water organises a list of activities to celebrate Drinking Water Week. One of the most popular initiatives is the blind tasting water challenge. People get to take part by blindly tasting a variety of water brands and selecting the one that tasted the best to them. Bell-Parker said that this year almost 100 people participated in the test. Most people voted TC Crystal as the best tasting water, for the second consecutive year. A plaque was presented by BellParker to a representative from TC Crystal who collected the award on behalf of the company. The activities for the week also included a poster competition amongst all the high schools in the

Turks and Caicos Islands. The theme for the competition was the same theme for this year’s Drinking Water celebration ‘Get to know your H2O’. This year five schools participated, with 18 students in total submitting posters. First place went to Maranatha High School student, Renard Brown, who took home an Apple iPad, second place, Zackery Leslie from the Marjorie Basden High School and third place Paola Cruz from the Turks and Caicos Institute of Professional Studies (TCIPS). The final award was to Calvin Williams from Five Cays for winning the water raffle. His water bill will be paid for a month by Provo Water Company. Drinking Water Week 2014 was celebrated around the world from May 4 to May 10.

Fourth generation winemaker visits the TCI OFFICIALS from the hospitality industry were invited to a complimentary luncheon where a well-known winemaker was introduced. The Wine Cellar invited food and beverage managers from a number of hotels and restaurants in the Turks and Caicos Islands. The event was hosted at the Blue Haven resort on Providenciales on Friday (May 9) where attendees gained first-hand knowledge about the wine industry from the certified master in the field, Pio Boffa. Invited guests also had the opportunity to taste several of the wines that were produced by Pio Cesare. Operations manager for the Wine Cellar, Anthony Garland said that since the Turks and Caicos Islands is a smaller market, the company only carries about 60 cases of Pio Cesare wines for now. Boffa is a fourth generation

Students demonstrate their vocal talents

Dariniqua ‘Niki’ Stubbs sings to attendees

Capacity crowd enjoys primary school concert A HUGE crowd attended the Doris Robinson Primary School fourth annual music concert and play at the Conch Bar Community Center on Friday evening (May 9). Attending were North and Middle Caicos representative Minister DonHue Gardiner, Opposition Leader Sharlene Cartwright Robinson, and Llewellyn Handfield, president of Turks and Caicos Baptist Union. Kicking off the affair was the fourth to sixth grade students who sang and played ‘Sentimental Journey…back to Middle Caicos’. This set the stage for this year’s theme ‘Travelling music’ as the youngsters group K1 through grade three then sang ‘Going down the road’. Nine-year-old Esther Durosier then stunned the crowd with her vocal skills singing, ‘Wayfaring Stranger’. The piece also featured an instrumental interlude by 12-yearold Matayo Neat on his tenor guitar

(baritone ukulele). Life on the steamboats of the Mississippi River was celebrated by 12-year-old Armardo ‘Raynard’ Forbes and Keneley Petit-dor, 13, with the tune ‘Old Man River’. Then a play by their youngest school mates from K1 to grade three written by teacher Brendalee Harvey brought new meaning to the story of a lamb (pre-schooler Alex Forbes aged four in costume) who followed a student to school. The programme’s ‘Classic corner’ featured the instrumental talents of 10-year-old keyboard student Tolani Oladimeji, Amardo ‘Raynard’ Forbes, 12, and Kobe Forbes, 10, on their ukuleles as they played music from classic composers. Master of ceremonies Ernest Forbes Jr then introduced principal Kiesha Mills who sang the haunting melody from the movie Titanic, ‘My Heart will Go On’. The principal’s beautiful rendition brought cheers as loud applause

filled the room. A skit by grades five and six featured talented actor Raynard as The Traveller who showed the others how to cook soup from a stone. Later in grass skirts and with flower leis around their necks, Tolani, Alexandria Robinson aged 10, Ruthann Forbes, 10, and Aaliyah Basden, 11, did the Hawaiian hula dance backed up by Matayo, Kobe and Raynard on their ukes, all singing lyrics in the Hawaiian language. The flowers were presented to audience members as the song ended. The audience joined in singing ‘When the Saints go Marching In’ and ‘How Great Thou Art’ to the accompaniment of junior uke players Leonardo Louis, 8, Tayo Oladimeji, 8, Alani Mithchell, 6, and Darinqua ‘Niki’ Stubbs aged 5. Late in the programme Tolani Oladimeji sang ‘Bridge Over Troubled Water’ which demonstrated this young lady’s all around talents to loud applause and more cheers.

She was then joined by Esther, Raynard, Kobe, Matayo and Kendeley in a song titled ‘Only Youth’.

This piece seemed to predict the future with its lyrics: “Only youth can make the world seem right and the darkness bright.”

Harry Potter spin-off Fantastic Beasts gets release date WARNER Brothers has set the release date for the Harry Potter spin-off film. Fans will have a two-year wait until they’re able to see Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. The film is based on the textbook Harry Potter uses at Hogwarts, a guide to magical creatures written by

fictional author Newt Scamander. Although the cast for the new magical movie is yet to be announced, the film will arrive on the big screen in 2016. Warner Bros has previously said the film series was part of an “expanded creative partnership” with JK Rowling but has not given

any indication as to when the film could go into production. In an interview with the best-selling author earlier this year, she talks about finishing the script in record time. “I thought, ‘I’ll give them this plot’ and then, fatally, I sat down and thought, ‘I just wonder what it would look like...’, and wrote a rough draft

in 12 days.” The film will be released on 18 November 2016. (News Beat) The film is based on the textbook Harry Potter uses at Hogwarts, a guide to magical creatures written by fictional author Newt Scamander.

Court battle over Bob Marley songs begins in London THE High Court in London has begun hearing arguments in a copyright dispute over 13 songs by the late Jamaican reggae icon Bob Marley. The publisher Cayman Music is attempting to retrieve the rights to the songs, among them No Woman, No Cry. It claims they were not included when it sold some of its rights in 1992 to Blue Mountain Music, as Bob Marley had penned them under other people’s names. But Blue Mountain says the songs were covered under the transfer deal. The case is centred on an agreement the two companies signed in 1992, 11 years after the music star died of cancer.

MILLIONS OF DOLLARS A lawyer for Cayman Music, Hugo Cuddigan, said the songs, which were written between 1973 and 1976, were not part of the deal because they had been “fraudulently attributed” to other people. Cayman claims Marley did so to avoid the provisions of his publishing agreement with the music company. But Ian Mill, a lawyer for Blue Mountain, said the lawsuit had to be dismissed because the “plain intention” of the 1992 deal was to “transfer all rights”. There are millions of dollars at stake in the case, and a verdict is expected by the end of this week.

Rapper Andre Johnson was reportedly on PCP when he sliced off his penis and then jumped from a second-story balcony in Los Angeles

Rapper explains why he cut off his penis and jumped from balcony ANDRE Johnson, the Los Angeles rapper who hacked off his genitalia before taking a dive from a second storey balcony in North Hollywood, has finally spoken out about what motivated last month’s gory selfmutilation. Depression drove him to do it, he revealed. Johnson, who performs under the stage name Christ Bearer with the Wu-Tang affiliated group Northstar, was reportedly high on the dangerous psychedelic drug PCP on April 16 when he performed his apparent DIY eunuch stunt. The 40-year-old nevertheless went on to tell celebrity website TMZ that he was smoking weed and reading about monks and vasectomies just before the self-castration. He felt as if his “world was collapsing,” he said, after a restraining order prevented him from seeing his two daughters. He also revealed that he had a third child on the way. TMZ also reported that doctors were able to reattach Johnson’s member. Johnson claims that he will regain full functionality of his privates, although his ability to father more

children is considered unlikely. Conflicting reports surround the case, which is classified as an attempted suicide by police. According to friends in the apartment building where the castration took place, Johnson pulled off the mutilation quickly before hurling himself over the balcony. E! Online nevertheless reported that Johnson cut off the tip of his penis first, then removed his testicles and the remainder of his genitalia. The E! report said that the rapper was under the influence of PCP at the time, a mind-bending drug which is also known as Angel Dust or Phencyclidine. PCP is a “dissociative drug” meaning that it distorts perceptions of sight and sound and produces feelings of detachment from the environment and self. Meanwhile, as the drama unfolded and occupants of the apartment building raced downstairs to see if Johnson had survived the fall, they found him on his feet, screaming. He was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in critical condition. The butchered organs were recovered upstairs.

In addition to the worldwide hit No Woman, No Cry, the titles under dispute are: Crazy Baldhead, Johnny Was, Natty Dread, Positive Vibration, Rat Race, Rebel Music (Road Block), Talking Blues, Them Belly Full, Want More, War, Who The Cap Fit and So Jah Seh. (BBC)

The court dispute centres on 13 songs by Bob Marley, including the hit No Woman, No Cry.

John Kerry: Haiti “taking steps” The Bahamas tops region on royalty payments to hold free, fair elections – TCI among those criticised in US

HAITI is “taking steps to hold free and fair parliamentary elections and to seat a new Haitian Parliament,” United States Secretary of State John Kerry told the US Congress in a recent communication. In a statement published in the Federal Register and released by the US Embassy in Port-au-Prince, Kerry said the government of Haiti was “respecting the independence of the judiciary” and “combating corruption and improving governance, including passage of the anticorruption law to enable prosecution of corrupt officials and implementing financial transparency and accountability requirements for government institutions.”

The certification by the Secretary of State is required before certain US funding can be provided to the country’s government. It was related to the Department of State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs Appropriations Act. The US has been among Haiti’s international partners urging the country to hold legislative and municipal elections that have been delayed for nearly three years. Kerry met with Haiti President Michel Martelly during the latter’s visit to the White House in February. At the time, he said Haiti’s “indicators have gone up and that’s the direction we want to see it going.” (Caribjournal)

Teenager accused of stabbing man to death for a dollar in the Bahamas A TEENAGER was remanded to Her Majesty’s Prison yesterday after being charged in connection with the fatal stabbing of a 25-yearold man over “one dollar” in a dice game. The 17-year-old was escorted before Magistrate Samuel McKinney to face a charge of murder in which it is alleged that he intentionally, and by means of unlawful harm, caused

Trade Representative’s 2014 report THE Obama administration has praised the Bahamas for being the only Caribbean nation to make royalties payments to TV programming rights holders in 2013, boosting this nation’s reputation as a “responsible trading” partner. Ryan Pinder, minister of financial services, replied “excellent, excellent” when told by Tribune Business of the Bahamas’ ‘honourable mention’ in the US Trade Representative’s 2014 ‘Special 301’ report. The Bahamas again avoided being placed on the US’s Special 301 ‘watchlist’ for alleged weaknesses in its intellectual property rights

regime, and was just about the only Caribbean nation to escape being blasted over its treatment of music and TV rights holders. In a section entitled ‘Caribbean copyright challenges’, the US Trade Representative’s Office criticised the likes of Anguilla, the Cayman Islands, Dominica and the Turks & Caicos Islands for maintaining regimes that allowed their cable and satellite TV broadcasters to avoid compensating TV programmers for using their channels. And other nations, including Jamaica and Barbados, had not made a single royalties payment to TV programmers in 2013.

indictable offence where “the court can neither consider nor grant bail in this matter.” On Thursday, Rahming was involved in an argument with another man – after a game of dice – over $1 which resulted in him being stabbed multiple times with a knife in his chest, neck and arms.

A 17-month-old baby died in the back seat of a car after his “excited” grandfather forgot to drop him off at the home of a relative before going to work on Tuesday in Trinidad, police have confirmed. They said that the 56-year-old grandfather, an electrical foreman at a state agency, was anxious to report for duty after he had been informed of a promotion. The man, who has not been identified, left his grandchild, Jadon Cudjoe, locked in the back seat of the car for more than eight hours while he was at work. He was due to have dropped off the child at the home of a

relative, the regular baby-sitter. Police said it is likely that the child died from hyperthermia due to the extreme heat, since Tuesday’s temperature reached 34 degrees Celsius. An autopsy is expected to be performed later on Wednesday. The man said he had no knowledge the baby was in the car until he returned to the vehicle after work to find Jadon unresponsive. Baby Jadon could not be revived, despite attempts by paramedics. Media reports Wednesday said that several police officers also broke down and cried on seeing the tortured look on the child’s face.

Bill Clinton insists wife Hillary is in good health

‘Unprecedented’ global study finds 1 in 4 adults anti-Semitic

FORMER US President Bill Clinton has praised the strength and health of his wife, ex-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, dismissing a top Republican’s public doubts about her well-being. “As far as I can tell, she’s in better shape than I am,” Mr Clinton, a Democrat, said of his wife, 66. Mrs Clinton, said to be weighing a 2016 presidential bid, fell ill in 2012. Last week, Karl Rove questioned her capacity for the White House and reportedly said she had brain damage. The New York Post reported on Tuesday that Mr Rove, the strategist behind George W Bush’s election to the White House, had told an audience in Los Angeles last week, “Thirty days in the hospital? And when she reappears, she’s wearing glasses that are only for people who have traumatic brain injury? We need to know what’s up with that.” In fact, Mrs Clinton was in hospital for three days after falling ill with a stomach bug in December 2012. After becoming severely dehydrated, Mrs Clinton fell at home and struck her head, suffering a concussion. While she was in hospital doctors diagnosed a blood clot. Mr Rove has disputed the Post report. “I didn’t say she had brain damage. I said she had a serious health episode,” he said on Fox News. Democrats and some analysts have said Mr Rove is trying to inject concerns about Mrs Clinton’s health

ONE in four adults worldwide are “deeply infected with anti-Semitic attitudes,” the Anti-Defamation League announced, in releasing results of an unprecedented global survey. Nearly half have never heard of the Holocaust, and only a third believe historical descriptions are accurate, the survey found. Carried out by First International Resources and commissioned by the Anti-Defamation League, the survey included 53,100 adults in 102 countries representing 88% of the world’s adult population. In native languages, it asked people whether certain traditionally anti-Semitic statements are probably true or false, including that Jews have too much power over international markets, global media, and the U.S. government; that they “don’t care about what happens to anyone but their own kind,” and that “Jews are responsible for most of the world’s wars.” The survey then calculated how

into the public debate as the start of the 2016 presidential race nears. “There are ways to bring these issues up, and certainly anybody who’s running for president has to answer some health questions, and more so, for someone who’s going to be 69 at the time that she would take the oath of office,” liberal Daily Beast columnist Michael Tomasky said on MSNBC. “However, this ain’t the way to bring it up - a poisonous, toxic way to introduce this.” Mr Clinton said at the Peterson Foundation Fiscal Summit in Washington on Wednesday that Mrs Clinton’s concussion was serious and that it took her six months to recover. “Look, she works out every week, she is strong, she’s doing great,” he said. “She certainly seems to have more stamina now.” (BBC)

Sudan woman faces death for apostasy A SUDANESE court has sentenced a woman to hang for apostasy after she left Islam and married a Christian man. “We gave you three days to recant but you insist on not returning to Islam. I sentence you to be hanged to death,” the judge told the woman, AFP reports. Western embassies and rights groups had urged Sudan to respect the right of the pregnant woman to choose her religion. Local media report the sentence would not be carried out for two years after she has given birth. Sudan has a majority Muslim population, which is governed by Islamic law. It rules that apostasy - the abandonment of one’s religious faith - is a crime. The judge also sentenced the woman to 100 lashes after convicting her of adultery - because her marriage to a

Christian man was not valid under Islamic law. Earlier in the hearing, an Islamic cleric spoke with her in a caged dock for about 30 minutes, AFP reports. Then she calmly told the judge: “I am a Christian and I never committed apostasy.” Amnesty International said the woman, Meriam Yehya Ibrahim Ishag, was raised as an Orthodox Christian, her mother’s religion, because her father, a Muslim, was reportedly absent during her childhood. In court, the judge addressed her by her Muslim name, Adraf Al-Hadi Mohammed Abdullah. She was convicted of adultery on the grounds that her marriage to a Christian man from South Sudan was void under Sudan’s version of Islamic law, which says Muslim women cannot marry non-Muslims.

many believed that at least six of the 11 stereotypes were probably true. In the Middle East and North Africa, 74% did. In Eastern Europe, one in three did, and in Western Europe and sub-Saharan Africa, nearly one in four believed most of the stereotypes. Overall, 26% believed at least six of the stereotypes -- a figure representing an estimated 1.1 billion people. The most widely believed stereotype was that Jews are more loyal to Israel than to the countries in which they live. “For the first time we have a real sense of how pervasive and persistent anti-Semitism is today around the world,” ADL National Director Abraham Foxman said in a statement. “The data from the Global 100 Index enables us to look beyond anti-Semitic incidents and rhetoric and quantify the prevalence of antiSemitic attitudes across the globe. We can now identify hotspots, as

well as countries and regions of the world where hatred of Jews is essentially nonexistent.” In Laos, only 0.2% of the adult population holds anti-Semitic views, the survey found. Also at the bottom of the list were the Philippines, Sweden and the Netherlands. In the United States, 9% of respondents believed the majority of the stereotypes. The highest levels were found in the Palestinian territories at 93% and Iraq at 92%. Yemen, Algeria, Libya and Tunisia were next. In Asia, less than a quarter of respondents had heard of the Holocaust and believed historical accounts are accurate. In subSaharan Africa, that figured dropped to 12%; in the Middle East and North Africa, 8%. Three quarters of the people surveyed said they’ve never met a Jewish person. That figure includes most of the people who believe a majority of the anti-Semitic stereotypes are probably true. (CNN)

Former British tabloid editor testifies he often hacked the royal family’s voice mails THE former royal editor of the News of the World said Wednesday that he repeatedly hacked the voicemails of Prince William, Prince Harry and Kate Middleton in the months before he was arrested for illegal eavesdropping in 2006. Clive Goodman told Britain’s phone hacking trial that he listened to Middleton’s voicemails 155 times, Prince William’s 35 times and Prince Harry’s nine times. Goodman was briefly jailed in 2007, along with private investigator Glenn Mulcaire, for hacking the phones of royal aides. But Goodman said police and prosecutors never asked him whether he had also targeted members of the royal family. “I have been as open and honest about hacking as I can be, but nobody has asked me any questions about this before,” said Goodman, 56. Earlier in the trial the jury was read transcripts of intercepted phone messages between William and Kate from the days when they were courting. She became the Duchess of Cambridge when they married in 2011. Goodman said Kate was first targeted in late 2005, when she was becoming “a figure of increasing importance around the royal family.” “There were discussions about her and Prince William marrying, moving in, settling down,” he said. “She started to receive semi royal status and things were moving on.”

Doctors say while Musa Dayib is badly hurt, he is expected to survive.

Clive Goodman told Britain’s phone hacking trial that he listened to Middleton’s voicemails 155 times, Prince William’s 35 times and Prince Harry’s nine times.

Goodman and six others — including ex-News of the World editors Rebekah Brooks and Andy Coulson — are on trial over wrongdoing at Rupert Murdoch’s British tabloids. Murdoch shut down the News of the World in 2011 after evidence emerged that its staff had hacked the phones of celebrities, politicians and even a kidnapped 13-year-old girl. The defendants deny all the charges. Goodman returned to the witness box on Wednesday after a twomonth break due to ill health. Judge John Saunders told the jury that a medical expert had declared the former journalist fit to continue giving evidence.

‘Miracle’ US baby survives 11-storey fall A BABY in the US state of Minnesota has survived an 11-storey fall from an apartment balcony, local media report. Musa Dayib, one, has two arm fractures and is breathing with the help of a ventilator but is expected to live, after slipping through a railing. His doctor said his youth as well as the softer ground he landed on helped contribute to his survival. Family and friends in Minneapolis’s Somali community say the family is in shock. “When people found out he survived, no one could believe it,” community activist Abdirizak Bihi told the StarTribune newspaper.

provided plenty of drama. Sevilla edged out their Portuguese rivals 4-2 on penalties after a tense 120 minutes of play at the Juventus Stadium in Turin. The Spanish side joined an elite group of teams to have lifted the European trophy three times following their UEFA Cup wins in 2006 and 2007. Benfica have now lost eight European finals -- and the club’s peculiar curse continues. After winning the European Cup for a second time in 1962, then manager Bela Guttman was denied a pay rise and promptly declared the club would not succeed on the continent for 100 years.

Liverpool’s Luis Suarez and Crystal Palace’s Tony Pulis were named the Barclays’ Player of the Season and Manager of the Season respectively.

Suarez and Pulis win Barclays Premier League awards LIVERPOOL forward Luis Suarez has been named the Barclays Player of the Season and Crystal Palace’s Tony Pulis has picked up the manager award. Suarez, 27, who scored 31 times in 33 league games to help the Reds finish second, also won the Golden Boot having scored the most goals this campaign. Pulis, 56, took over at Palace in November and helped the club climb from 19th position to finish in 11th

place. “This club has a great opportunity of pushing forward,” said Pulis. “We finished sixth in the Championship last season and 11th in the Premier League this season. That’s a 15 place jump.” Suarez was also named Player of the Year by the Football Writers’ Association earlier in May, taking 52% of the vote and finishing ahead of team-mate Steven Gerrard and Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure.

NUWAN Bodhinayake is known for his flamboyant batting. His recent score for defending champions Quality Kings, in the Turks and Caicos Islands Cricket Association T20 Cricket Competition, however once again proves that this talented cricketer is not just a hitter, but a quality innings builder. His 130 runs is the third highest score in the shortest version of the game in the TCI. Bodhinayake also has the other two highest scores. He once scored 150 not out and 147. At the Downtown Ball Park on Sunday last Bodhinayake led the Kings after they were inserted to bat by opponents Beaches. The game eventually became one-sided when the aggressive cricketer began the assault. He scored a whopping 11 towering sixes and 10 blistering fours as his team piled on 230-2 in their allotted 20 overs. Kareem Jack added 52 (5X4s and 2X6s).

Sports National Josh for Sports

Unofficially breaking the U17 triple jump world record AS I’ve written in the past, when I was just a junior boy (Class III) in high school in Nassau (St. John’s College), there was not a boy my age in the whole Bahamas that could beat me in the 800M, the 400M, the long jump or the high jump. Actually I also, at that time, was highly competitive (age wise) in the shot put, discus, javelin and pole vault. Back then, I had no real interest in the so called “hop-step and jump”.

ADVANCING TO CLASS II When the track season rolled around the following January, every boy in my school wanted to challenge me in the 100M dash. I was a running fanatic and would race my school mates without warm ups and in my school uniform. The result of my ignorance gave me a rude awakening and taught me a lesson that I would never forget. While racing at top speed, I pulled a groin muscle. I knew nothing about sports medicine or physiotherapy. My PE teacher never knew what

the sand pit. I joined this crew. In my first year, I jumped 42’ 6”. In my second year in class II I won the high school triple jump in 44’6”. Yet, I did not regain my sprinting prowess.

happened to me. My classmates would jeer me and tell me that I was washed up. The pain in my right groin was unbearable and hampered me from running at top speed. It was very frustrating. I did manage to win the 800M in our house sports, but I did not compete that year in sprints. TRIPLE JUMPING There were a few students who experimented with the triple jump. There was no regimented programme that they followed. They would just repeatedly hop, step and jump into

MUNRO COLLEGE In September of 1967, I transferred to Munro College. Immediately, my life changed. I went through a complete regimentation—socially, educationally and sporting discipline. Munro was an all-boys boarding school. We had female students coming to do science with us and there were also non boarders, but that’s as far as it went. EDUCATON This school was the Elite of the Elite back then. There was a student who was the grandson of the second Prime Minister of Jamaica Sir Donald Sangster. The two Ropers at Beaches were also my school mates. Their father Bernard was the head master. I studied for 10 GCE O’Levels.

SPORTS It was compulsory that every boarder participate in some sport at the end of the school day (15:00h-17:00h), after which we would shower, eat and from about 6:30h to 8:30h we had to go up to the class room to do homework. THE DIFFERENCE For the first time in my life, I had a real coach Mr. Ken Walton, an Englishman. There was not a sport that he did not coach at the school. Basically we only played cricket, field hockey, lawn tennis, table tennis, weight lifting along with gym (weight training). I learned a series of weight training exercises which strengthen my legs, limbs and body without making me muscle bound. These were specific exercises that were designed to advance me as a track and field athlete (squats, step ups, toe raises, dead lifts, jump clean and jerk, military presses, bouncing splits, pushups, pull ups, bench press, leg press and inclined sit ups.

I mastered these exercises because I wanted to be the best in Jamaica. OTHER TRAINING For the first time in my life I did bouncing: · Hop, hop, hop on one leg and then the next. · Hop, hop, step, step, step etc. · There came a point in time when I could continue for 400M none stop. · I also did plenty of cross country. · I long jumped from both left and right feet. · I eventually could do 15 reps of 100M (jogging in between). · Rhythm, speed, resiliency and strength became my focus—the distance would come. HOUSE SPORTS UNOFFICIALLY BREAKING U17 WORLD RECORD—1968 Around March in our house sports I jumped 49’7” in the triple jump, unofficially breaking the world’s U17 record. The road was hard, but it paid off. Love Josh

PwC National Inter-Schools’ Rugby Championships:

CHHS and HJ Robinson win age division titles Clement Howell High School (CHHS) and HJ Robinson walked away with the U18 and U15 titles respectively, when the curtains came down on the PwC National Inter-Schools’ Rugby Championships. The event, which was held last Saturday at the Meridian Field, was one laden with skills, athleticism and sportsmanship and despite only two eventual winners all the schools showed grit and determination on the field. CHHS retained their title while HJ Robinson won in their first try at the younger level. FIRST ATTEMPT The Under 15s championship provided some nail-biting finishes, with British West Indies Collegiate (BWIC) and HJ Robinson duking it out in the group stages and again in the final. BWIC had the better of the Grand Turk school in the group game. They came back from 3-1 down in the first half to level play at 3-3, before Myron Rolle intercepted a pass from the visiting school on the last play of the game and streaked down the field for the winning try. Both sides having defeated Wesley Methodist and TCI Middle School met again in the final. BWIC took the lead through Cole

Nickson before HJR slipped ahead 3-1 at the half. BWIC defended well in the second half with diving stops, but were unable to penetrate their opponents’ line. HJR, learning from preliminary clash, protected the ball and secured the win in their first attempt at the U15 level. RETAINS TITLE The U18 bracket was hotly contested with all matches coming down to the wire. CHHS just got past BWIC 4-3 in their clash. HJR played BWIC in a

tense affair that was knotted 4-4 after full time. Sudden death overtime saw BWIC launch attack after attack at the HJR try line, but a resilient defense denied BWIC a winning score. A HJR counter attack from their own tryline, moved the ball down the field for the winning try. The final saw a replay of last year with HJR facing CHHS. This time around CHHS were better prepared for their opponents and strict defense initially thwarted the Grand Turk school’s attacks. The CHHS team, led by Lincoln Outten?,

HJ Robinson won the U15 title in their first attempt at this level.

notched a brace of tries before HJR got on the scoreboard. HJR showed great improvement in ball handling and line running, but were unable to overcome the CHHS defense. A last minute rush by HJR had them hammering at their opponent’s line, but they were unable to score. CHHS claimed the trophy, but HJR has made it known that next year they plan to take the hardware to

Grand Turk. In a release the TCI Rugby Football Union were grateful to sponsors PwC who “helped make the day possible and allow the TCIRFU to continue to promote rugby in TCI schools”. The local body also expressed appreciation to all the volunteers who came down to help organise the day, especially DJ Viper.

2014 Church Co-ed Softball League:

Roman Catholic and Prophecy flawless in latest games THE Roman Catholic Church made a huge statement after a somewhat slow start to this season of the Church Co-ed Softball Slow Pitch League. Playing against the Methodist Church the Roman Catholic Church made all the stops to dominate the clash. By the bottom of the third the game had to end (owing to the 10-run rule) with the eventual winners leading 12-0.

In the second clash, last Monday evening at the National Stadium, Prophecy Church also made light work of their opponents Paradise Baptiste Church, and as the first game the 10-run rule after the third innings also came into effect. By that time Prophecy were ahead 15-0. Games were expected to continue on Thursday evening at the same venue.

ruggers leave for Jamaica THE Flamingos, TCI national rugby team, were in high spirit when they departed the TCI on Thursday (May 15) for Jamaica for their first round of the NACRA Caribbean Championships North Zone Cup Division. The Flamingos will play the hosts in Ewarton on Saturday May 17th. Of the lot travelling six were from the 2013 NACRA U19 Trophy winning side. STERN TEST The TCIRFU expects a stern test in Ewarton as Jamaica continue to develop rugby on the island of three million people. Captain Sean O’Neill said: “Having played Jamaica last year we know that they like to run the ball from anywhere on the field and they are always in a position to counter attack. We tried to control the game up front last year and we expect that Jamaica will focus on that this time around. There are no easy games in our region with such large neighbours, so we’ll have to get stuck in early and control the ball. We’re expecting a real challenge and hope to build on this looking

toward our home game against The Bahamas on May 31st.” VISIBLE IMPROVEMENT Coach Randy Schulz said: “The boys have shown visible improvement in the last few weeks at training and these upcoming games against Jamaica, Bahamas and Mexico will significantly assist the team in its development. This game against Jamaica is giving an opportunity to some of the younger players such as Miguel Malcolm and Franco Mompremier to show their skills and build a foundation for the future of TCI rugby.” Manager Paul Collis said the team had suffered through
