reports of meetings
in US 'totally untrue'
A new chapter for students
* By PAUL G
Tribune Staff Reporter
CLAIMS that the FNM's
leader and his deputy were cam-
paigning for funds from an
LNG firm instead of attending
the opening of parliament were
dismissed as "utter foolishness"
Party chairman Desmond
Bannister said the reports were
"totally untrue" and an example
of underhanded politics from
Political sources had claimed
that Hubert Ingraham and
Brent Symonette did not show
eup for the opening ceremony
*because they were "campaign-
ing for financial contributions"
from an LNG firm in the Unit-
ed States. ,
The suggestion was that Mr
Ingraham and Mr Symonette
had been promising more
"favourable" treatment of the
LNG company Suez Energy
North America (formerly
Tractebel) if the company
would contribute to the FNM's
general election campaign.
Suez Energy has spent mil-
lions of dollars trying to gain
approval for a liquefied natural
gas (LNG) facility in Freeport
Harbour, without success. The
Impact Assessment (EIA)
forms were not passed by the
Bahamas Environment Science
and Technology (BEST) Com-
mission, which cited a number
of environmental concerns.
Political sources claimed that
Mr Ingraham and Mr Symon-
ette, while both were in the US
for legitimate reasons, were also
secretly meeting with heads of
the LNG company to "hammer
out" the alleged financial agree-
Even during the sitting of the
House, Prime Minister Perry
Christie hinted that Mr Ingra-
ham and Mr Symonette were
both out of the country con-
ducting "business of politics"
rather than being present during
the opening of parliament.
However, Mr Bannister
brushed the allegations aside,
labelling them as "nothing less
than utter foolishness" and
underhanded politics by the
"That is totally untrue utter
foolishness. People who put
these rumours out are trying to
deal with the lowest level of
political discourse. They need
to stop their foolishness and
address the real issues of the
country," he said.
Mr Bannister said the truth
was that Prime Minister Christie
had reconvened parliament
without any "clear agenda" or
timeline of when his proposals
would be achieved.
"The fact is that the PM has
gone back to parliament with
an agenda that seems very
unclear as to what they want to
achieve and how they want to

FNM MP responds
to PM's comments
on Ragged Island
and Long Island
* By CARA BRENNEN
Tribune Staff Reporter
THE "considerable contribu-
tions" to Long Island and
Ragged Island that Prime Min-
ister Perry Christie enthused
about in parliament may be on
the drawing board but have not
yet happened, FNM MP Larry
Cartwright said yesterday.
Mr Cartwright was respond-
ing to comments Mr Christie
made in the House of Assembly
acknowledging his decision to
join the FNM.
Mr Christie said Mr
Cartwright's victory as an inde-
pendent candidate in the 2002
general election came because
the PLP chose not to run a can-
didatc against him.
Regarding several media arti-
cles, Mr Christie told the House
that he was confident the press
had misquoted Mr Cartwright
in comments suggesting the
PLP had not done anything for
either Long Island or Ragged
The prime minister claimed
that Mr Cartwright should be
aware that, during the PLP's
tenure in office, they had made
considerable developments to
both Long Island and Ragged
Island. Also, he said, a number
of projects were in the works
for the islands.
In fact, he said, government
spent more per capital' on
Ragged Island, which has a pop-
ulation of just under a 100 peo-
ple, than any other island.
Infrastructure "of a major
kind" is also being put inplace
to provide water, cable televi-
sion, airport and docking facili-
ties on Ragged Island, the prime

IN CONTINUING to
encourage the nation's youth
to get excited about reading,
parliamentary secretary in the
Ministry of Education Veron-
ica Owens read the final chap-
ter of "Reading the Sky"
series to schoolchildren.
Yesterday, Mrs Owens
toured C W Sawyer, Gambier,
E P Roberts and Sandilands
primary schools, where she
read chapter 13, "What Hap-
pened in Mansfield", to the
children who were eagerly
The reading series was pub-
lished by The Tribune in con-
junction with the Minister of
Education's book club. Over
the past three weeks, chapters
from the series were published
in The Tribune every weekday.
Over 20 schools took part in
reading the story.
"Reading the Sky," written
by Avi and illustrated by Joan
Sandin, is about a boy name
Jamie who is dyslexic. Jamie
is not able to read words on a
page, but he can read clouds.
The Tribune attended the
reading session at Sandilands
Primary school on Friday. Mrs
Owens read to Mrs Pamela
Armaly's grade four class.
Mrs Owens sat comfortably
on the reading corner carpet
while the children gathered
around to hear the ending of
the story they have been read-
ing for weeks.
Mrs Armaly said that her
students were "anxious" to
read each day what would hap-
pen next in the story.
To make it more interesting
for her students, Mrs Armaly
compiled all of her newspaper
clippings of the story into a
home made book.
"Early in the morning they
would come and if they had a
preNious newspaper' from the
day beforefthey would.go over!,
it (the story); They never
grumbled, they just enjoyed
reading," said Mrs Armaly.
She added that reading the
story helped her class acade-
mically in many ways. She said
that it has reinforced language
skills, such as how to speak in
She seid the reading series,
also encouraged students to
help one another in developing
their reading skills.
"I see them sitting down and
they encourage each other like
a big brother or sister," said

having each chapter of the
book placed in The Tribune
was a different idea that was

Tourism conference expected
to host 600 industry officials
THE Caribbean Tourism Organisation
(CTO) and the Ministry of Tourism are expect-
ed to:host over 600 tourism industry officials at
a conference later this year.
Delegates will represent Caribbean govern-
ments, hotels, airlines, cruise lines, travel agents,
tour operators and strategic partners. There
will also be media representatives from around
"We look forward to returning to the
Bahamas for our annual Caribbean Tourism
Conference and anticipate that together with the
Bahamas Ministry of Tourism we will create a
programme that our delegates will find innov-
ative and inspiring," said Vincent Vanderpool-
Wallace, CTO's secretary general.
One popular addition to CTC in recent times
is the awarding of continuing education credits
for master classes taken at the conference.
That programme, in conjunction with George
Washington University, will again be instituted
at this conference, Mr Vanderpool-Wallace
The conference is the Caribbean region's pre-
mier caucus of tourism decision-makers, and
an important event on the calendar of tourism
practitioners doing business with the Caribbean.
The conference will take place in October. A
series of business meetings, involving ministers
and commissioners of tourism, the board of
directors and various CTO committees, will
immediately precede the conference.
Former talk show host on journalism
SOME Bahamian journal-
ists and media figures are
and can therefore be hin-
dered in reporting the coun-
try's news freely, former talk
show host Michael Pintard
"There are certain figures
in this country who are
monied and politically con-
nected who believe that
when they call (the heads of
media house) they get their
desired results," he said.
Speaking as a guest on
More 94's radio talk show
Real Talk, he said that
although the Bahamas as a
democratic country has a
free press, in reality some
journalists are not willing to
criticise politicians beyond
a certain level for fear of
Mr Pintard said that,
according to his sources,
some media houses are
afraid to air or publish cer-
tain stories because they are
worried that customers will
pull their ads.
"And when your approach
to journalism is determined
in part by what economic
impact you're going to feel,
then I think the Fourth
Estate is in trouble," he said.
Mr Pintard said journal-
ists should never gather
information or write news-
articles while considering
which business or political
figures may be offended and
whether they will remove
"I cannot first calculate
who I might offend or
whether or not they are
going to keep their ads or
continue to do business with
the organisation that I am a
part of. That's when you
have a fettered press," he

expressed concern over the
close relationship between
the business world and the
media in the Bahamas, he

Mr Jones told The Tribune
that Mr Pintard was asked
to apologise on air to Prime
Minister Perry Christie for
comments he had made on
his show about Mr Christie's
statements on the death
penalty. Mr Pintard, howev-

GOLD fever in San Saliador
has reached new heights with res-
idents fearing that the .much
debated buried treasure, report-
edly of pirate Henry Morgan, is
being smuggled off the island.
According to several sources
on the island, a.vessel is fre-
quently seen anchored off the.
Sandypoint settlement, just south.
of Fortune Hill, where the trea-
sure is reported to be.
What started as mere specula-
tion about the possibility of the
treasure being smuggled out of
the country has reached outright
: paranoia levels.
Some residents have already
begun making frequent trips tb
the site "to keep an eye out" for
possible underhanded actions;
and keeping up constant contact
with residents living nearby.
The hope is to create some
form of "information system"
where any suspicious activity can'
be halted "at a moment's notice"
before anything is removed from
the site. i
The Watlings Archeological
Company has already cleared a,
large plot of land that is being
contested by a number of families,
laying claim to the property.
On Tuesday, reporters who vis-
ited the site were greeted by five'
security personnel clad in UT.S
Army fatigues who said that they
were.hired by a "private firm"'
but would not give out any more:

over dredging operation
* By CARA BRENNEN
Tribune Staff Reporter
SRESIDENTS in eastern New
Providence have expressed con-
cern about a dredging opera-
S tion on the west side of Dick's
The operation, which is
believed to have started just
over a month ago, has turned
the small cove into a major con-
According to one resident.
the operation may have been
initiated by the owner of sev-
Seral parcels of land in the area.
The resident explained that
the area has been frequented
by several large backhoes and
an occasional dump truck.
Residents believe the plan is
to enlarge the harbour.
"During the first two weeks
of the operation, it appeared
that all the fill was being
trucked away, but it struck some
of us that the fill is being
S- used to reclaim land," a resi-
This apparent reclaiming of
the land, residents say, is cheap-

The residents have expressed
concern about the environmen-
tal impact of such dredging.

the end result may be.

tacted the director at the Min-
istry of Works and Utilities,
Melanie Roach, and was
referred to the office of the
Prime Minister, which has
responsibility for dredging.

FREEPORT Grand Bahama police
arrested three men for the alleged beating
and attempted armed robbery of several
foreign sailors on Thursday.
According to reports, crew members of
the MV Casino Royale, moored at Lucayan
Harbour, were walking from the Pinder's
Point area back to the ship around 11pm
when two masked men armed with a shot-
gun appeared from the bushes.
The gunmen demanded cash, but the
sailors refused to give in to-their demands.
Several shots were fired into the air. Then
there was a struggle between the masked
men and the sailors.
During the struggle, a 62-year-old sailor
was seriously injured after being thrown to
the ground and beaten about the body.
The man was taken to Rand Memorial
Hospital for medical attention.

letter on choice
EDITOR, The Tribune.
NOW that the sacred sea-
son's past, please permit me to
respond to the letter, "Shaken
by Choice of Symonette", by
Angela Wright which appeared
in the December 20th issue of
Mrs Wright writes that she
was shaken to her very founda-
tions and underwent an
epiphany of sorts when a caller
to a national radio talk show,
asked the question.....
"Where can we find a coun-
try, which would have a black
man as their leader (or deputy
leader), where the majority of
people are white?"
Mrs Wright then goes on to
ask several interesting questions
of her own......
"Would the United States do
it, Britain, Europe.......any-
where? We all know that the
answer is a resounding no!"
"So why in a country where
whites make up not even half
or a quarter of the population,
but a mere 15 per cent, is a
white man the deputy leader of
that country's official opposi-
tion? Do we as blacks have so
little confidence in our own abil-
ities to lead; are we nothing
more than former slaves beg-
ging to be led by our white mas-
Mrs Wright is, of course, right
that neither the United States,
Britain, nor any of the coun-
tries of continental Europe has
a black as leader. Unlike Mrs
Wright who goes on to con-
demn the Free National Move-
ment for electing Brent Symon-
ette deputy leader, I feel that
the party should be commended
for its maturity in being able.to
see past Mr Symonette's colour.
With this move The Bahamas
of course set no precedent as
an overwhelmingly black coun-
try in choosing a white to play a
leading role in its national poli-
Mrs Wright no doubt remem-
bers Edward Seaga of Jamaica.
In addition to their close eco-
nomic and social ties, Jamaica
and The Bahamas share a num-
ber of other parallels. They are
both fellow Caribbean and sis-
ter CARICOM countries, with
a shared history of slavery, a
shared colonial history, and an
identical Westminster system of

cule 0.2 per cent.
In 1974 Edward Seaga, a
white man, emerged as leader
of the then opposition Jamaican
Labour Party a post he was
subsequently to hold for 30
years. In 1980 the Jamaican
people voted in the JLP making
Mr Seaga their Prime Minister
- an office he held for nine
years. Edward Seaga and his
nemesis and arch rival Michael
Manley perhaps the only
name better known than Sea-
ga's in post independent
Jamaican politics dominated
Jamaican politics for 30 years.
Manley himself though, was
hardly a black man being
classified as of mixed race. A
grouping that makes up a mea-
gre 7 per cent of Jamaica's total
While I am unable to speak
intelligently to whether Mr Sea-
ga was a good Prime Minister (I
leave that to the Jamaican peo-
ple), I know of no report that
even suggests that Mr Seaga
during his time in office
attempted to return his black
brethren to their former state
Mrs Wright says further,
"Don't get me wrong, I am not
a racist, as a matter of fact I
have been married to a white
Bahamian for almost 13 years
and been with him a total of 18
years, exactly half my life; so I
am by no means racist."
Whether or not Mrs Wright is
racist is in this instance of little
interest to me as I seek to chal-
lenge not the messenger but her
message. I would ordinarily not
dabble in Mrs Wright's person-
al affairs but since she made it a
prominent part of her presen-
tation I must.
Mrs Wright goes on to say of
the election of Brent Symon-
"Then to add insult to injury
we as a country of blacks disre-
gard the innumerable black
minds as deputy 'leader to our
official opposition, and could it
be because we ourselves have
bought into the belief that the
white man is in fact superior?"
Contrary to Mrs Wright's
suggestion, that the FNM elect-
ed Brent Symonette merely
because he is white I strong-
ly suspect that just as Mrs
Wright, a black woman, elected
to marry a white man, appar-
ently in spite of not because
of his colour, so too did the
FNM elect Brent Symonette. I
submit that the man's colour in
both cases is incidental. But
while Mrs Wright accuses the
FNM of electing Mr Symonette
merely because he is white, she
makes it clear that she opposes
his election for that very rea-
son. This begs the question: If
race is too flimsy a reason for
the FNM to elect Mr Symon-
ette --how can it then be an
important enough reason for
Mrs Wright to reject him?
Mrs Wright, I think, does Mr
Symonette a disservice by not
dealing with whether he is capa-
ble of or qualified for the posi-
tion to which he was elected.
She bases her opposition
entirely on race. Although she
proclaims later in her letter,,
"We are simply people. It does-
n't matter whether we are black
or white." Come now, Mrs
Wright, you simply can't have t'
both ways. Either you aspire tb
a "colour blind" society or you
aspire to a society in which we
blacks discriminate against ouri
white brethren, denying them
economic and political oppor',
tunities and subjecting them to,
the servitude to which they once:
subjected us. i
Mrs Wright charges that her
white-in-laws genuinely feel thai,
they are genetically superior to,
black people, "They look at the
fact that the majority vastt
majority) of the crimes in this
country (and if you listen to
them, in other countries as well)
are committed by blacks; they
look at the alarming rate of
teenage pregnancy in this coun-
try (and again in countries!
worldwide) happens in black'
they look at the number of
blacks suffering from AIDS iY
this country, Africa and around
the world and the list goes :oi
And from these issues they coin-
clude that whites are superr'
If such be the case then these
people are clearly living in thof
land of the unenlightened and
feeding from a trough of igno-
rance, but in their brief
moments of lucidity when not
being strangled by their own'
stupidity they perhaps should
ponder this..... .
What if instead of ha' ing
stolen every single advantage
and having the best of every-
thing strictly reserved for you.
- backed by the force of lawN
and reinforced by the force of
arms you the white race 6'ihd
had instead to endure three
hundred years of the most
degrading, inhumane treatment
ever visitedd upon man .byltis
fellowman? And for 150-yeaig
even after being released fror
your state of bondage you were
treated as sub-human and'
denied even the mort basic'
human rights and meagre
opportunities that were second
nature to another race, and,
fueled their advancements The
right to vote, opportunities ir
employment, housing, educa-
tion, etc. .. ,
Would you now be lying in
your ivory tower, wallowing ini
self imposed ignorance quot-
ing statistics to support your stu-
pid contention of inherent shpe-
riority or might you more
likely be a part of the statistics
you now quote.
The fact is that the poorer;
less educated members of both
the white and black races ar'
more likely to become statistics
of these social ills than their
more affluent better educate'
counterparts. Clearly demon,
strating that socially deviant
behaviour is a function not of
race but circumstance.
Now back to Mrs Wright. A'
to her declaration, "I ar
ashamed of the Free National
Movement for choosing Brent
Symonette as their deputy
leader. I listened to the con-

UN report on
has welcomed a United
Nations report calling for
the closure of the US mili-
tary detention centre at
It is urging governments,
human rights defenders and
members around the world
to send a clear message to
the US government that it is
time for Guantanamo to go.
UN experts also conclud-
ed that interrogation tech-
niques authorised for use at
the facility violate the Con-
vention against Torture; that
international human rights
law is applicable to the facil-
ity and that the US is oblig-
ed to either bring the
detainees to trial under US
law or release them.
Susan Lee, director of
Americas programme, said:
"The report confirms con-
cerns which AI has repeat-
edly raised with the US gov-
ernment. We have consis-
tently called for the deten-
tion facility at Guantinamo
Bay to be closed. The US
can no longer make the case,
morally or legally, for keep-
ing it open.", ,-
The United States also
operates detention facilities
at Bagram Airbase in
Afghanistan, Abu Ghraib
and elsewhere in Iraq and
has been implicated in the
use of secret detention facili-
ties in other countries, also
known as 'black sites'.
All these facilities, includ-
ing Guantinamo Bay, must
be opened to independent
scrutiny, said Amnesty. All
detainees should have access
to the courts and be treated
humanely. "These are basic
principles that cannot be
overridden even in time of
war or national emergency,"
the organisation said.
To date the US has reject-
ed any independent inquiry
into its overseas detention
facilities. Nor has Washing-
ton been prepared to co-
operate with a Council of
Europe investigation into
'rendition' of terrorism sus-
pects, Amnesty said.
"The selective disregard
for international law by the
United States in the context
of the 'war on terror' has
enormous influence over the
rest of the world," it added.
When the US committed
serious human rights viola-
tions, it sent a signal to abu-
sive governments that these
practices are permissible.
"This is why Gumntanamo
Bay is so important: it tells
other governments that they
can commit human rights
violations in the name of
counter-terrorism, too," the

vention, I saw many, many,
many, examples of black intel-
ligent potential leaders."
Let me paraphrase the old
communist critique, "All are
equal but some are more
equal than others," by saying:
Many are capable but some
are more capable than others.
The delegates that voted for
Mr Symonette at the FNM
convention obviously deemed
him more capable than those
running against him. Mr
Symonette's election must be
viewed against the backdrop
not of the many, many, many
examples of black, intelligent,
potential leaders but in the
context of the two people he
defeated who offered for the
position. Those many, many,
many, black, intelligent, poten-
tial leaders had every right and
opportunity but did not offer.
It is futile to speculate but
please indulge me in a
moment of futility. Had Tom-
my Turnquest stepped down
from the leadership of the
FNM when initially called
upon to do so and offered
instead for the deputy lead-
er's position Tommy Turn-
quest might well be FNM
deputy leader today instead
of Brent Symonette.
As for Mrs Wright's con-
tention, "It appears that our

We come again to inciden-

To Mrs Wright's second
contention: "No black man is
good enough to be their
deputy leader ... in a country
full of great black minds only a
white man will do."
Mrs Wright disregards
entirely the fact that this
charge was essentially ren-
dered still born when the
FNM convention that elected
the white man supposedly
because "no black man is
good enough" elected at
the very same time a black
man it felt was indeed good

The rest of the charge I'll
simply allow to be devoured
by the facts. The fact is that
in the three plus decade histo-
ry of the Free National Move-
ment, Brent Symonette is the
first white to hold the post of
deputy leader. No white has
ever held the position of
leader. A clear demonstration
that a black man has always
been good enough.
Mrs Wright continues: "This
is a sad, sad day in our coun-
try, what hope can our black
youth have, when our leaders
to letter on
are telling us to our faces that
we as young, educated black
people are simply not good

To this I say: In a free soci-
ety, leaders emerge.
They always have, always
will. Free societies are spawn-
ing ground for leaders of all
types. Far too often we allow
ourselves to be carried away
by pretty speeches at political
conventions and rallies. And
while intelligence and the abil-
ity to connect with an audi-
ence are essential tools in the
arsenal of a political leader,
they do not of themselves a
There are some who seem
to see a potentially great
national political leader loung-
ing under every coconut tree.
The reality is that leading a
country is the ultimate test of
leadership. The unfortunate
truth is, that in the history of
this planet few have been real-
ly good at it. Meanwhile, the
great business leaders, great
religious leaders, great lead-
ers in the humanities, in the
world of sports, the arts and
culture, the sciences, great
leaders in the fields of Law
and Medicine and the other
professions have been innu-
The leadership of a country
simply dwarfs all other forms
of leadership. Compare it for
a moment with the leadership
of a company. Companies fail
all the time due to poor lead-

Madame Editor, this desire to
be led by those who look like
us. But this is too base and
simple and demands too little
of us. There are those on the
other hand who have a greater
desire to be led by those who
think like us. This desire is of
course a bit more demanding,

He and Sgt Duncombe stood at the front
door of the establishment. Officer Williams
said a man he knew as Ellie 'as standing at
the door as well, collecting an entrance fee.
Sgt Williams said he saw John Moxey
approach Ellie and heard Ellie tell him he
needed money to get inside. He got the
impression that Moxey did not want to pay,
to enr the nightclub.
He 'testified that Ellie and John
exchanged words, then Ellie punched John
and both men "exchanged blows". .
Sgt Williams said he grabbed hold of
Moxey 'and Sgt Duncombe took a hold of
Ellie, separating the two men. The officer
said he then saw Peter Clark and Don Bas-
tian fighting. He and Sgt Duncombe sepa-
rated those men as well.
When asked by prosecutor Cheryl Grant-
Bethel what, if anything, was said between
Peter Clark and Don Bastian, Sgt Williams
told the court: "Don told Peter that he don't
play and he have Jah in his hand and he
ain't afraid of no-one."
Sgt Williams said he saw Derek Bastian
approach Don Bastian and pull him away.
"Derek had a knife-case and a cellular
phone case on his side," Sgt Williams told
the court. However, he said he did not see
a knife in the case.
Sgt Williams said a short while after, Ellie

"Derek Bastian and Don Ruben Bast-

hands and were swinging them at John and
his crew," Sgt Williams stated.
John fell and a group of men picked him
up and took him outside. Don and Jeffrey
followed closely behind, he added.
Sgt Williams said he saw a green Ply-
mouth Acclaim outside the club and also
saw Derek, Don and Jeffrey fighting per-
sons in the vehicle.
The officer said he watched as the car
tried to pull off, then collided with the front
of a BEC truck. It then pulled off again
and collided with a group of people before
striking the club wall.

By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Repoorter
MARK Knowles and
Daniel Nestor are now on a
six-match winning streak and
two just away from their sec-
ond straight doubles title.
Playing as the top seeds in
the Open 13 in Marseille,
France, the duo will be out to
clinch the title that they lost to
the team of Martin Damm
and Radek Stepanek.
The two teams are in the
same position that they were
last year with Damm and
Stepanek as the No.4 seeds.
They upset Knowles and
Nestor, the top seeds, in two
But Knowles said he and
Nestor are playing with a lot
more confidence than they
were last year and they are
eagerly looking forward to the
rest of the tournament.
"We had a tough draw. We
beat Lopez and Verdasco, the
Spanish Davis Cup teamsin
the first round in straight sets.
It was a good match,"
"Then yesterday, (Thurs-
day), we beat Taylor Dent and
Greg Rusedski, another dan-
gerous team. So, so far, it's
been going very well."
Coming off their first victo-
ry of the year in their third
tournament in Delray Beach
earlier this month, Knowles
and Nestor defeated Feliciano
Lopez and Fernando Verdas-
co, 7-6 (7), 6-4 on Tuesday.
Two days later, they
claimed a 6-2, 7-6 (6) second
round triumph over Ameri-
can Taylor Dent and Briton
Greg Rusedski in a match that
they didn't face a break point.
They are now scheduled to
face the Austrian team of
Julian Knowle and Jurgen
Melzer, who pulled off a 6-4,
6-4 win over Jarkko Nieminen
and Petr Pala on Friday in
their quarter-final match.
The way they are playing
right now, Knowles said he's
confident that they should be
able to keep their winning
"We're definitely feeling
confident, but it's definitely
going to be tough," he insist-
ed. "We have a tough match
tomorrow (today) against the
Davis Cup team from Austria.
"They are a very tough
team, so we will have to play
very well to beat them. But
we have some momentum and
so we feel confident that we
can continue to play as well
as we've been playing."
Having been down this road
before where they've had a
winning streak, Knowles said
as long as they play the way
they're capable of playing,
they should get back into the
"Now with the new scoring
system in the ATP, you have
to get off to a quick start and
maintain the lead," Knowles
indicated. "Our goal is to stay
focus on the job that we have
Both players, according to
Knowles, are healthy, which
bodes well for their participa-
tion in the rest of the tourna-
Heading into the tourna-
ment, Knowles and Nestor
have moved into the 16th spot
on the ATP Doubles Race as
a result of their victory in Mar-
seille. They have accumulat-
ed a total of 37 points so far.
Knowles and Nestor are two
points ahead of four teams
tied with 35 and trail the team
of Aussie J Kee and American
T Parrot, who have 40.
American twin brothers,
Bob and Mike Bryan, have a
considerable lead in the top
spot with 215 over the team
of Martin Damm of the Czech
Republic and Leander Paes
of India,,who follow with 156.

BASIL Davis just missed pitching
a perfect game, but he went on to
post a no-hit shut-out for the best
performance turned in so far this
year in the Masters Softball League.
Davis' performance enabled the
DHL Lions to win just their second
game in seven this year with a 19-0
whitewash of the Miller Panthers
on Saturday in the battle of the
"bottom bowl" teams.
While the Lions remained in sixth
place, the Panthers stayed at the
bottom of the seven team pile with
a 1-8 record.
