Yeh, one of the latest articles says that Taz said that Anna's tongue was stuck to the roof of her mouth and she had to pry it off. Stupid media or rigor??
This says that Gibson was handed the $10,000 permanent residency permit fee on September 20th 2006.
THE TRIBUNE ATTACKS SHANE GIBSON Oct 2006 (John Marquis, the Tribune writer)
ANNA NICOLE SMITHS DEATH THE TABLOIDIZATION OF THE BAHAMAS Shane Gibson & ANS pictures surfaced - Feb 2007INGRAHAM SHOULD CHECK HIS OWN MEMBERS (Ingraham accused of destroying the family of Shane Gibson ) Feb 2007
Is this the shrink????
Must have some significance in one way or another. Shane is no longer the Minister of Immigration. He is out of there at the present. I did read that he is being considered for a different position.
>>>What does it show? I can't play video right now.
Anna & Howie were partying in Las Vegas with girls where they had lap dances. Then Anna and Howie were all over each other, and he was grabbing her right on tv. Some of the party girls were naked, and Howie was grabbing his private parts.>>>
I remember that from the Anna Nicole Show. She dragged him onto her and he straddled her right on the couch in the club. Yeah, that was pretty risque. Of course he was pretty drunk too. I could have sworn I saw Kimmie in the background cussing because she didn't yank her onto her lap. I don't think she was quite that drunk, even though she did apparently like the gals too. But the pretty ones, not the purple haired butch types.

Just Who Received The $10,000 Cheque
posted by newsadmin 133 days ago view profile
When Anna Nicole Smith's fast-tracked residence certificate made the headlines someone familiar with the security checks required for such applications told us it was "absolulely impossible" to complete the checks and issue the certificate in three weeks.
However, as a result of what Prime Minister Christie has referred to as "new records of efficiency" being introduced in the Immigration Department, Ms Smith's certificate was issued exactly 21 working days after an application was submitted to the department an Friday, August 11.
On Monday, August 14, an Immigration Department official called to set up an interview for the next day at the Eastern Road residence of Ms Smith - who also goes under the names of Mrs Vickie Lynn Marshall, Jane Brown, Michelle Chase and Anna M Smith.
On September 11, the Director of Immigration wrote a letter to Ms Tracy Ferguson, junior partner in Callenders and Co -- who had been instructed to submit the application on Mrs Vicki Lynn Marshall's behalf informing Ms Ferguson that Ms Marshall's residence permit had been approved "without the right to work."
However, although this letter was addressed to the Callender law firm, it was never sent to Callenders. It was only when Ms Smith/Marshall called the firm on September 20, giving instructions that a $10,000 cheque be delivered to her home by 7 o'clock that evening for Immigration Minister Shane Gibson that Callenders learned that the residence certificate had been granted.
On September 20, Ms Ferguson herself drove to Ms Smith/Marshall's home, where she says she saw Mr Gibson in the living room. Ms Ferguson was shown into the bedroom where she gave the envelope to Ms Smith. As Ms Smith opened the envelope her lawyer-boyfriend ushered Mr Gibson into the bedroom. Ms Smith handed Mr Gibson the cheque. The young lawyer from Callenders then left "Horizons."
The next day, September 21, the Permanent Secretary called Callenders, spoke with a senior partner and asked Callenders to send Immigration the $10,000 cheque. There was a surprised reaction when she was told that the cheque had been delivered the night before to Minister Gibson. It was then suggested that she look in the Minister's office, where it is understood the cheque was eventually discovered.
Mr Michael Scott, the law partner, then told the Permanent Secretary that not only did his firm no longer have the cheque, but that it had never received immigration's letter which informed the firm that residency had been approved. She was asked to fax the letter, dated September 11, which she did. The original of the approval letter did not arrive, at Callenders until October 9.
The Tribune has in its possession a copy of the $10,000 cheque dated September 20, a copy of the permanent secretary's fax sending Immigration's Sept. 11 letter of approval - dated September 21 - and the cancelled cheque with the Bahamas Immigration accounts stamp dated September 22.
When the unusual Sequence of events became public, Bahamians wanted to know why a government minister would interfere with the duties of the Immigration Department, and why he would personally accept a cheque on behalf of that department.
On September 25 an indignant Minister Gibson "let it be known for public information that no cheque was ever personally collected by" him or delivered by him or to him "in connection with Ms Anna Nicole Smith." He said that "anything to the contrary is a vicious lie conceived in ignorance and spread in wickedness by the FNM."
Surprisingly, Prime Minister Christie, a man noted for being slow to make a decision or commit himself to any position, once again jumped to the defence of his minister. It was obviously a repeat performance of the Keod Smith-Kenyatta Gibson episode when, acting on incomplete information, Mr Christie put himself in a politically embarrassing position.
And so at the opening of the first phases of Excellence Estates on September 25, Mr Christie declared: "You can't have it on the front page of newspapers that my minister picked up a cheque when it's a lie, outrageous lie."
However, later rumours are even more disturbing. An unconfirmed report is now making the rounds that the young lawyer is being pressured to change her story about the delivery of the cheque to Horizons. If this report is true, it is very serious. If not true. it should be denied immediately.
In the meantime, the public is entitled to the truth. We urge the Opposition to ask for the appointment of a select committee with powers to send for persons and papers and get to the bottom of this most irregular affair. And when the truth is discovered we agree - with Minister Gibson that if there has been any breach, the guilty should be "dealt with to the fullest extent of the law."
Editorial from The Tribune
"Anna Nicole Smith's Bahaman Lawyer Quits." The Daily Dish
This is Michael Scott who was Anna's lead estate attorney and was also the lawyer for Daniel Smith's Estate.
Sounds like there was a huge battle. He wasn't happy about Anna marrying Howard before Daniel was laid to rest and lots of other conflicts. Scott sent Anna an official letter regarding the circumstances of withdrawing from the case.
I'll try to find another reference to this to verify the date.
Hey Sac, that story about the stuck tongue is not new. It's just that I transcribed it and posted it yesterday. In was from one of the interviews that Taz did with The Insider/ET, and it was dated 21 Feb.
Anna, Howard and Anna's Assistant Kim go to Las Vegas and visit a club. They look to be in a private room with about 4 female strippers. At one point Anna is sitting on a loveseat size couch by herself and she asks Howard to do a lap dance for her. He jumps on her lap straddling her and he grabs her boobs (like a pervert would) and acts like he is kissing her. Then he grabs between the legs and he is rubbing her between her legs (note they are fully clothed during this and both have pants on). Then the show Anna on the couch with Howard between he legs and he is humping her. Then at one point Howard is on the floor on his back and Anna is on top of him and bouncing on him like she is having sex with him. His face is in total pleasure - like he is really enjoying it. (like a young boy who has never even been dry humped before much less had sex before) - He is totally into all of it while Anna is more or less cracking up through the whole thing.
To Have A Passport Or Not
On 23rd January 2007, all U.S. citizens were required by law to have a passport if they are returning by air from the Caribbean region including The Bahamas and Bermuda. The hotel sector has been concerned about the advantage that this gives to cruise passengers who will not need to do so until 2009 and have been lobbying for the effort, which is known as the Western Hemisphere Passport Initiative, to be postponed. The Foreign Ministers of the region were able to negotiate the present implementation date which is one year later than originally planned. Tourism Ministers took over the issue following that.
There was confusion in Nassau last week when it was announced that a waiver had been granted for The Bahamas that would no longer require passengers to travel to the US with their passports. The US Embassy has clarified the issue saying that the passport initiative is still in place and that there has been no waiver.
What has happened is that in their regulations there are two phases of implementation of the initiative. The first phase requires a flexible approach. You will not be stopped if you dont have a passport but told you must get a passport once you produce proof of citizenship. In the second phase there will be strict enforcement of the rules. However, before that phase can be implemented, there must be 30 days notice given to the airline carriers that strict enforcement is coming.
post 1208 - is this what you wanted?
More Michael Scott, attorney, info:
There were "strong differences of opinion between myself and Howard over strategies". Scott cited atty/client privilege and said no more.
IF ANS consumed an omelet as Dr. KE stated, what time was it brought to the room, where was it obtained and who presented it to her? Room service records?
IF someone related this information to Dr. KE, who said it and at what time did they suggest ANS ingested the omelet. The time on Dr. KE's cellphone records could narrow this.
If this indeed happened, could it be another 'last meal' scenario? If it didn't, why did she say it?
The Hon. D. Shane Gibson
Member of Parliament
Member of Parliament (PLP)
Mr. D. Shane Gibson was born in Nassau on September 7, 1961. He is the fifth child of Gerlene Gibson of Crooked Island and Eric "King Eric" Gibson of Acklins. He and his four (4) brothers and five (5) sisters grew up in Mount Pleasant Avenue off Kemp Road, they then moved to Marathon Estates where David Shane was at the age of ten (10).
David Shane Gibson was employed at The Bahama Telecommunications Company (Batelco) in June 1984. He was overwhelmingly elected to the position of President of the Bahamas Communications and Public Officers Union (BCPOU) in 1997 and again in June 2002. He has served as full time President of the BCPOU for five (5) years.
Prior to winning the Presidency, he also served as Treasurer of the Union for six (6) years from 1991 - 1997, Administrator of the BCPOU Pension Plan from 1994 - 1997 and Trustee of the BCPOU Pension Plan from 1990 to 1999. He was reappointed as Administrtor of the Pension Plan in August of 1999 and was also a Director of the BCPOU Medical Plan holding that position since June 1997 until 2002.
Mr. Gibson has the distinction of being the youngest person ever elected as President of BCPOU. As a staunch trade unionist, he has had extensive training in that area and has participated both internationally and locally in seminars and conferences, prior to and after becoming president of the BCPOU. He has studied at St. Augustine's College, Raleigh North Carolina, Devry Institution of Technology, Toronto Canada where he recieved an Associates of Arts Degree in Electronics and Engineering and the College of the Bahamas where he obtained an Associates of Art Degree in Electronics Technology.

Hey, notice his birthday is the same date as Dannielynn's. September 7th.
Shane Gibson is to the Bahamas as the Kennedy's are to Massachusetts.
>>>Why is that? Because Howie released the photo of he and Anna together? Or because he's threatened to release more? How do we know Shane Gibson is no longer on Howies team? Has he said or done anything to indicate otherwise?>>>
Because of all the scandal, he resigned a week or so ago. So no more official in the pocket. Just a regular old citizen maybe, but not much power there!
There was confusion surrounding the death from the start, with one report saying the boy was found sitting upright in a chair, another saying he was found laying on his back in a hospital bed, and yet another saying he was vomiting before he died. .
Quick to dismiss that line of thinking was Reginald Ferguson, the assistant commissioner of the Royal Bahamas Police Force. Ferguson 's comments satisfied the international media, but did little to assuage the suspicions of Bahamians, who have little confidence in their national police force.
The force is notoriously riddled with corruption. An alarmingly high percentage of crimes are perpetrated by former, off-duty and even on-duty officers. The Bahamas police have also been condemned by Amnesty International for numerous extra-judicial killings. Bahamians privately state that complaints of abusive officers routinely fall on deaf ears. To my knowledge, no Bahamian police officer has ever been sent to jail in the past five years, despite hundreds of valid complaints "investigated" during that time. There are even a few senior police officers, I have been told, that can not travel to the United States because of outstanding warrants or extradition requests. ..
Contradictions in the ever-changing story, Coroner Virgill's cryptic comments, the delayed - now cancelled inquest... all seem to indicate a typical cover-up of sorts by the Bahamas government, in an effort to protect somebody.
Then, came a bombshell. The Tribune newspaper, the most credible source of information in The Bahamas, weighed in with new and detailed information Bahamians could trust. Managed by a foreigner with a disdain for Bahamian corruption, the well-respected paper reported that "20 year-old Daniel Wayne Smith, had been dead 'for some time' before hospital officials were called in to perform advanced life saving procedures."
From my not-so-professional opinion, she was already dead on her stomach. Tongue dried from no saliva stuck to the roof of her mouth.
Don't ask me how I know.

Friendship with Anna Nicole forces Bahamian Minister of Immigration to resign
A week ago today, after pictures showing Bahamian Minister of Immigration and Labour Shane Gibson in compromising positions with the late Anna Nicole Smith were published all over the world, I wrote the following:
[W]hether she actually gave him some pregnant (or post-partum) nookie is immaterial. Although, for what she will end up costing him, I hope she did.
At any rate, to preserve the integrity of his government, Prime Minister Perry Christie must demand Gibsons resignation forthwith! And this weeks scheduled meeting of his Partys re-nomination committee for candidates to stand at the forthcoming general elections provides a fortuitous opportunity for the PM to sack Gibson along with other undesirable incumbents.
Therefore, I was not at all surprised on Sunday night when Gibson appeared on national television to announce that he had tendered his resignation with immediate effect. I was disappointed, however, that he turned what should have been an honourable gesture into a pathetic spectacle by blaming a vast anti-government conspiracy for his predicament and claiming that he was resigning only to preserve what remains of his familys integrity.
After all, his assertions in this respect are patently undermined by the fact that just days before - Gibson embarrassed his wife by having her to sit by her man for a contrived, nationally-televised interview, during which he tried in vain to spin the damage to save his job. Never mind that he hardly enhanced his familys integrity by allowing his mother to serve as Anna Nicoles baby Mammy and his father as Howard Sterns step-and-fetch-it man who reportedly skippered back to The Bahamas the boat (curiously christened "The Cracker") which Stern induced Anna Nicole to buy in Florida just days before she died. Indeed, only God knows what other domestic services Gibson enlisted other family members to perform as part of the immigration services we provide all applicants for permanent residency.
Even worse, however, Gibson insulted the intelligence of all Bahamians by admonishing them to believe him when he says he did nothing to be ashamed of and not their lying eyes when they look at those compromising pictures.
This, alas, brings me to the antic support he received from our beloved prime minister - who wistfully described Gibson as a competent and capable individual [whose resignation will be] a loss for the entire country. Because, frankly, I was stupefied when he echoed the charge that Gibson was a victim of an organized conspiracy to take him out.
After all, if Mr Christie believed that the leader of the opposition (FNM) party was trying to scapegoat such a valuable member of his cabinet and a man he considers a genuine friend, then he should have encouraged Gibson to stand to slug it out as Gibson made clear he wanted to do during that ill-fated interview. Especially since, after accepting his resignation, the prime minister lamented the irony, if not hypocrisy, that when three members of the opposition were similarly compromised they refused to resign .
That said, heres how this rubbernecking drama will unfold:
After hearing arguments from lawyers about who has the right to Anna Nicoles embalmed body, the Florida judge (who seems as clueless about American law as he is about Bahamian law) will rule - pursuant to what is so patently obvious - that her body must be returned to The Bahamas to be buried next to her son Daniel.
The Bahamian Judge who will hold hearings later this week to determine whos the Daddy of her baby Dannielynn will rule that Howard K. Stern and all other plausible claimants in this respect must submit to DNA testing to determine paternity. And when its proved that Larry Birkhead, not Stern, is the childs biological Daddy, the Judge will award him sole custody, at which time Birkhead will take his daughter back to America to continue Anna Nicoles gold-digging quest for a cut of her late husbands fortune.
Finally, Stern will continue to peddle any picture or story about this tragedy that tabloids are willing to buy. But, when he returns from the baby-Daddy hearing mentioned above, I hope Bahamian authorities confiscate his passport pending next months inquest into Daniels death, for which he may be found complicit and promptly incarcerated.
If the inquest is inconclusive, however, the Bahamian government will summarily deport Stern to the U.S. to face disbarment proceedings for his unethical and unprofessional relationship with Anna Nicole.
Wow, it costs $10,000 to move to the Bahamas?
In that same thread.... it says ANS's Bahamas house is in HKS's cousin's name. I think we may have brushed over ownership of that house, but why would they put that house in his cousin's name and not purchase outright? Especially if you are required to own property to receive citizenship in the Bahamas?
I have my eye on this character as well. I read the article that you linked right after ANS's death. Ferguson also appears in articles regarding the airport workers that are involved in the drug smuggling cases from the Bahamas to the US.
The force is notoriously riddled with corruption. An alarmingly high percentage of crimes are perpetrated by former, off-duty and even on-duty officers. The Bahamas police have also been condemned by Amnesty International for numerous extra-judicial killings. Bahamians privately state that complaints of abusive officers routinely fall on deaf ears. To my knowledge, no Bahamian police officer has ever been sent to jail in the past five years, despite hundreds of valid complaints "investigated" during that time. There are even a few senior police officers, I have been told, that can not travel to the United States because of outstanding warrants or extradition requests.
"...which is another legal mine field."
This guy should watch his back. He's not an ally and he may know too much.
Getting confused here, what inquest has been canceled ?
"Ferguson also appears in articles regarding the airport workers that are involved in the drug smuggling cases from the Bahamas to the US."
I've also wondered if there's any relation to Tracy Ferguson, partner of Michael Scott at Callendars.
No... it costs at least $510,000. ($500,000.00 home investment or business investment plus $10,000.00 for the permanent residency permit)
So they are saying that the secondary Bahamian home (the one under major rehab) is in who's cousin's name? (Howard or Anna's?)
How does a person with double implants voluntarily sleep on her stomach?
If LE has Moe and someone else in police protection than this could be much bigger than what we have perceived.
It brings to mind the drug bust and money laundering that is currently being investigated in that locale.
As far as that creepy belly mobile slime HKS, I really hope that he does not commit suicide there in the Horizon. And deprive us of seeing his sorry carcass handcuffed and marched off to a jail cell
with great care...!
"Remind me to not visit the Bahamas."
Looks less and less inviting, doesn't it? In the drug bust article (Post 1206), a place called EXUMA was mentioned. Sounds way too much like exhume to me.
LOL - you mean placed just so? Like tucked in her armpits?
I think it is BS TexKat. Go read the thread.
Article was from 9-21-06. Earlier inquests were cancelled. The one for March 27, 2007 is still on.
There's info here or on the other thread somewhere about eliminating the Coroner's Court and a lot of other hoopla since Daniel's death.
Why do you think that stlnative, because someone on the thread said that it was just gossip.
Doesn't Moe live in Florida or is he back in the Bahamas?
Kristy Swanson seems like a good choice to play Anna Nicole...
105 temp makes you feel like the walking dead. I know this from personal experience. My doctor(had insurance at the time)wanted to put me in the hospital, but I had kids at home. Mr. Wonderful would have snatched them if I wasn't there. I promised the doctor that I would stay in bed. Har har...
The youngest, then 5yrs old, had head lice, which I discovered when braiding her hair for school. I spent the day disinfecting all the bedding, and delousing her. Then my 12 yr old son set fire to the backyard. I actually got more peace at the telemarketing boiler room where I worked. I blew out an ear drum I was so sick. Anna should have been admitted ASAP to the closest hospital. I cannot imagine partying in that condition (boxing match?!).
