on Ragged Island
By RUPERT MISSICK Jr
AN OPBAT helicopter was
called in yesterday to quell a
group of Haitians who "were
getting out of hand" on Ragged
This group was apart of 394
Haitians captured in a sweep

day whicihcovered three family

Minister Shane Gibson, it was
alleged that among the immi-

DURING submissions in
the extradition case of
Czech-born investor Viktor
Kozeny, his lawyers say he
cannot be prosecuted
because he has been
charged under outdated US
In his submissions yester-
day, Clive Nicholls, lawyer
for Mr Kozeny, submitted
that his client was not liable
to prosecution as he was not
charged under the revised
version of the United States
Foreign Corrupt Practices
Kozeny is accused of vio-
lating the FCPA which
essentially bans US compa-
nies from offering bribes to
foreign government officials
in order to retain business. It
also contains provisions that
cover violations by foreign
companies and officials
while in the United States.
Kozeny is currently facing a
27-count US indictment on
substantive and conspiracy
charges of bribery, money
laundering and aiding and
abetting in those offences.
The US is seeking his extra-
dition, accusing him of brib-
ing Azerbaijan officials with
millions to gain an advan-
tage in the privatization
process of local industries,
namely the state owned oil
Mr Nicholls pointed out
that the FCPA was revised
in November of 1998 and
that the offences for which
Mr Kozeny was being indict-
ed occurred between May
1997 and September 1998.
According to Mr Nicholls,
there is no evidence of Mr

"We had to send a chopper

were dispatched and they
brought everything under con-
"While that information is
not substantiated, we heard that
before and the difficulty is, if
you look at the illegal immi-
grants coming in 10 to 15 years
ago they were a lot more peace-
ful than they are now. Now you
have former uniformed officers
walking around as normal citi-
zens so that is something that
we have to take extremely seri-
ously," Mr Gibson said.
The exercises were carried
out jointly in North Eleuthera
and in Exuma and the depart-
ment is expected to carry out
more in the near future.
Officials detained 187 persons
from North Eleuthera, 120 from
Exuma and 87 from Ragged
This was the result of what is
the first in a series of compre-
hensive exercises that the
department will carry out over
the next few months.
The immigrants apprehend-
ed in North Eleuthera arrived at
the dock of the old Harbour
Control Office on a double-
decker sightseeing boat called
The Rookie. It was chartered
in Eleuthera for the trip.
"I want to sound a warning
to those illegal immigrants in
the Bahamas if you are working
here illegally, get out now
because if you don't and we
deport you, we will not allow
you to get a work permit in the
near future," said Mr Gibson.
He pointed out that in Exu-
ma, new communities of illegal
immigrants were being created
and the residents were becom-
ing alarmed by the number of
immigrants arriving on a daily

Department of Immigration
was not approving as many

past to minimize the chance of

the most critical issues facing
the Bahamas at this time. The
fact of the matter is unless we

THE pregnant girlfriend of
gunshot victim Deron Bethel

with police after allegedly over-
hearing an officer express a wish

Shakira Coakley, 22, has told
detectives that an officer at
Central Police Station said: "I
want to be like (name of officer
allegedly implicated in shoot-
ing Mr Bethel) and go to
Pinewoood and kill someone."
The tearful mother-to-be,
who was at the police station
on an unrelated matter at the
time, confronted the officer in
question and was allegedly told
she should get out of the build-
ing or face arrest.
Ms Coakley immediately
called Deron's mother, Ms
Diana Bethel, who advised her
to get the officer's number and
report the matter immediately.
Friends of Ms Coakley then
informed CDU chief Marvin
Dames of the incident.
The development came on
the eve of Deron's funeral, at
which Pinewood residents are
expected to mount a placard
protest over his death.
Family and friends have
alleged that Deron, 20, was an
innocent victim of a police

Sea disappearance seen as suspicious

SUSPICIONS of underhanded activity
shrouds the latest search and rescue oper-
ation currently underway for two Bahami-
an men lost at sea.
According to US Coast Guard officials,
the men from Grand Bahama flew to
Florida on Monday to navigate a 19-foot
boat, which had been bought in Miami by
a third man, back to the Bahaman.
According to initial reports, aftcr the
boat was purchased on Monday in Ft
Pierce, the men travelled to Miami and
then left that port around 6pm.
The fact that the two men. who rtporl-
edly did not have extensi e expert nce in
nautical matters, were attempting to nav-
igate the voyage at this time with limited
visibility does not sit easily with the Coast
According to officials at BASRA, the
19-foot Northern vessel, equipped with a
115 horsepower Yamaha outboard engine,
was discovered by another ship on its way
to the Bahamas. It had been overturned
and was drifting in the Gulf Stream. There
was no sign of the two men, one of whom
had celebrated his 20th birthday in Janu-
ary. The age of the second passenger is still
unknown, and Coast Guard officials are
hesitant to release the two men's names at
However, Coast Guard officials claim
lhat ;he vessel was found 54 miles off the
coast of Cape Canaveral with minimal
damage or structural loss.
"The condition of the boat didn't appear
to be extremely life threatening," Lt Com-
mander Terry Johns said.
"The boat was not completely sub-i,
merged, and it appears that survivors
should, and could have stayed with the
vessel," he said.
If the men are still in the water, and bi'
all calculations could have been there fcm
over three days, the possibility of
hypothermia setting in are becoming more
and more likely.

HBO screens clash between
Bahamians and gay visitors
By CARA BRENNEN
Tribune Staff Reporter
GAY visitors to the Bahamas
clashed with Bahamians in the
HBO documentary "All
Aboard, The Rosie Family
Cruise," which premiered on
the cable channel Thursday
The documentary, which
showcased the first gay and les-
bian themed family cruise host-
ed by Rosie O'Donnell and her
partner Kelli O'Donnell, fea-
tured a segment of the protest
held by the Save the Bahamas
group in Rawson Square on the
ship's arrival in Nassau in 2004.
The segment featured local
pastors and Bahamians con-
demning homosexuality as the
passengers made their way
through Bay Street.
In the 90-minute documen-
tary, Ms O'Donnell said that
when she initially heard of the
planned protest she was sur-
"I mean who's gonna protest
families," she said. "No one
really. It never entered my
mind." She said that nothing
would have made her happier
than to see these "amazing fam-
ilies walking out with their
heads held high with their hands
on their children and smiling
and saying liberty and justice
Passengers were alerted, in a
letter delivered to their cabins
before the ship arrived in Nas-
sau, that "two small churches"
were planning protests. In the
letter cruise organizers said that
they did not think that the
protest sentiment was repre-
sentative of the entire Bahamas.
As the ship sailed towards
Nassau, the documentary
showed storm clouds. Prior to
Nassau, the passengers had
been warmly greeted at the first
two stops at Cape Canaveral
and Key West. For many of the
passengers, it appeared that the'
contrast was overwhelming.
Kelli O'Donnell was shown
talking with the Bahamian
press. She said that in Key West
they were treated with a parade
and a festival while in the
Bahamas, they were met with
"It's a little bit bi-polar dis-
order," she said.
Some passengers were visi-
bly upset at the protest, while
others appeared to take it all in
"There are children coming
off of our ship and I don't want
them to have to see this," said
one woman who was near tears.
She was accompanied by a
woman who told her that "this
is the world and this is what you
have to deal with."
One small child was seen cry-
ing as a protester shouted at his
"They're giving Christianity
a really bad name, the hate
mongers, 'cause it looks to gay
people like Christianity equals
hate, it's not true, but it's kind
of compelling 'cause they're the
ones yelling at us all the time,"
said another woman.
As the protesters started
singing "What a mighty God we
serve", the cruise pastor who
had performed many onboard
weddings joined in.
"Marriage is between a man
and a..." shouted one Bahami-
an pastor as the crowd shouted
"So tell Rosie O'Donnell
take her immoral mess and filth
elsewhere," he said.
In another scene, some
Bahamian men sitting under
trees in Rawson Square, were
shown arguing with a gay cou-
ple that the Bahamas could not
be a playground for gay peo-

They were encouraged not to

Earlier this week, Ida Poitier,
the union's president, said that
she had been insulted by the

In a press release from the
government issued on Wednes-
day, it was claimed that meet-

about paying teachers before
Easter. This is an old and tired
ploy that was completely used
up back in the 1980s," she said.
Mrs Poitier-Turnquest said
that the union is first and fore-
most concerned with the work-
ing conditions, health and safe-
ty of teachers and while mon-
ey is important, it is a matter

Report warns of sleep disorders
ATLANTA Up to 70 million Amer-
icans have major sleep disorders some
serious enough to cause severe illnesses
such as depression, obesity, diabetes,
stroke, heart attack, even death that
neither they nor their doctors know
about, a federal study said Tuesday.
Sleep-related problems "cost the nation
hundreds of billions of dollars every year
in medical expenses, lost productivity,
accidents and other causes," said the
study by the Institute of Medicine of the
Only about 4 percent of family physi-
cians are trained to recognize or even
ask about sleep problems, which is dan-
gerous, said Dr. Harvey.Colten of
Columbia University Medical Centre and
chief author of the study.
He said the estimate of how many are
affected is based on numerous studies
The report recommends boosting train-
ing of all health care providers and to
spread the word to the public. Sleep,
Colten said, is at least as important for
good health as exercise and proper diet.
"Although sleep research and care for
individuals with sleep disorders have
expanded over the past several years, we
currently don't have the capacity to ade-
quately diagnose and treat all who suffer
from these problems," Colten said.
"There is much we don't yet understand
about the causes and processes that
underlie sleep disorders, which is why
we need a boost in research."
Another of the 14 authors, Dr. Kathy
Parker, a professor of neurology and reg-
istered nurse at Emory University School
of Medicine, said sleep deprivation caus-
es people to fall asleep behind the wheel,
at work or other inappropriate places.
Twenty per cent of car crashes are
believed linked to fatigue or lack of sleep,
"This is dangerous because millions
have sleep disorders and don't know it,"
she said. "Symptoms include excessive
daytime sleepiness, decreased attention

and concentration, also sleep loss that is
associated with problems including obe-
sity, hypertension, heart attack, depres-
sion, stroke, diabetes."
Most people don't know they have
sleep disorders until after accidents or
the development of diseases known to
be linked to lack of rest, she said, adding
that few people ask.their doctors about it
and few doctors ask their patients.
Symptoms of sleep problems include
fatigue, snoring, sleep walking, anxiety,
daytime fatigue and depression.
Colten said the link between obesity
and sleep disorders goes both ways. Mor-
bidly obese people have a higher inci-
dence of sleep apnea the repetitive
episodes of upper airway obstruction that
are associated with reduced blood oxygen
levels. And people with sleep apnea have
a higher rate of obesity, Colten said in an
interview. It has yet to be established
which causes the other.
The report says at least 75 per cent of
those who suffer from sleep apnea are
"There is plenty of evidence that dis-
turbed sleep over a period of time is asso-
ciated with obesity, diabetes, stroke, car-
diovascular disease, lots of things,"
"We don't know exactly how many,
which is why we are calling on more
research to find out how inany people
have sleep disorders and diseases we
think they cause."
The consequences worsen since obesi-
ty is a major cause of diabetes, he said.
"Too few Americans understand and
appreciate the harms linked to lack of
sufficient sleep, among people of all
ages," the report said. "Millions do not
recognize fatigue or more serious prob-
lems, or they just accept them. Evidence
indicates that the majority of people who
have a sleep disorder go undiagnosed

EDITOR, The Tribune.
IT really brothers me to hear
intelligent people keep laying
the national average squarely
at the feet of teachers. Students
learn from a myriad of sources,
society, home and school. The
way that they learn is a com-
plex issue and scientists are still
attempting to understand best
practices that can suit what we
call the average person.
Think about this. Teachers
in the Bahamas come from
many accredited universities
and colleges, from the USA,
Canada, West Indies and here
in the Bahamas to name a few.
Hundreds, perhaps thousands
of persons many of whom are
excellent teachers, have taught
them. Many teachers teach
today because of a great teacher
whom they emulate. It is uncon-
scionable to think that these
fine people would band togeth-
er and cause the students to fail!
The problem is bigger than the
Think about this. The one
upstairs has given to man free
will. He has sent especially to
the Bahamas, many servants to
show the way to Eternal Life.
From the written word, from
preachers, from excellent exam-
ples, most, if not all Bahami-
ans, know the way to perfect
happiness, but how many par-
take of it? So is it the Church's
fault that we have not learnt as
a society to live righteous lives?
There is always room for
improvement on behalf of the
Church but as the scripture says
each person will answer for his
own life's choices. Preachers can
preach until they are blue in the
face, but a sinner will not
change unless he wants to.
The teacher works just like
the preacher. He uses all of the
skills he has learnt. He meets
students who want to learn and
do. He meets students who are
reluctant at first, but because of
his songs, dances and treats,
start to work at learning. Some
change their ways while others
do not. He meets students who
refuse to learn. He sings, he
dances, he scolds, he threatens,
he works until graduation and
the child does not learn. He
meets students who want des-
perately to learn but the com-
bined effort of the teacher and
the student can only move him
from a low F such as 02 per cent
to a middle F 23 per cent. The
teacher rejoices for this child
because he sees the strength of
the spirit of this child and knows
that he may not get the acade-
mics but if he continues to per-
severe he will accomplish great
things in his personal life.
Employers will see positive
attributes in that child and trea-
sure him as a valued employee.
He is still a good person even
though he did not excel acade-
Let's look at the subject of
Mathematics. If grades A to G
are recognized in the BGCSE
system, then the populace in
general should perform at aver-
age. D is the average for this
system. When students irre-
spective of ability level are sent
to sit this examination then this
average of D should be expect-
ed. There should be more cause
for alarm if their teachers rec-
ommended them as being ade-
quately prepared for the exam
and a D average was returned.
We know that there is a policy
in place that encourages all
ninth grades to sit the BJC and
twelfth graders to sit the
BGCSE regardless of ability
level. Since the policy dictates
that students sit the exam
because they are old enough or
in the right grade (but not
because they are prepared),
then results like this happen.
Students who would have failed
at BJCs are given even more
work to understand in the same
three years that proved insuffi-
cient time to master previous
The dynamics of the human
situation is such that we do not
all learn at the same pace or in
the same way. The same things
do not motivate us. Some peo-
ple see no importance in an
education until they cannot get
the job or promotion they want.
They only become serious after
graduating from high school.
Some people just take a lot
longer to learn than their peers.
Instead of blaming teachers we
(teachers, parents and The
Department of Education) need
to work together to help all of
our children to get a better edu-
Allow teachers to recom-
mend students for BJC and
BGCSE. Have both pro-
grammes in Senior High School.
If a child was not successful or
was not recommended to sit the
BJC in Junior High, then allow
him to continue to prepare to sit
it in Senior High. It is best to
come out of school with BJCs

MOST jitney drivers and owners have agreed
to the provisions of the government's bus unifi-

Thompson (pictured right).
Known as the preferred model for the unifica-
tion of the bus system in the Bahamas, as well as
the company system plan, the scheme was formed
with input from studies of existing regional and
international bus systems, Mr Thompson
The preferred model will unify all bus systems
and pay bus owners according to their number of
vehicles, he said.
The advantages, he said, include: safety for
pedestrians and bus riders, improved timing and
reliability of service, financial efficiency for oper-
ators and riders, increased comfort, a lessening of
traffic congestion, and the creation of an umbrel-
la organisation for the enforcement of bus regu-

will be subsidized by the government until it is

Mr Nicholls refused a previ-
ous argument bN allorney for
the US, Francis Cumberbatch,
who had submitted that the
Bahamas has an international
obligation to extradite Mr
Kozeny because it has signed,
on to two international convyeq- :
tions against corruption ai-.'
organized crime. Mr Nicheli,:
submitted that, firstll., lhe':
Bahamas was merely a signap-i :C :
ry to the United Nations Con-'- *-
vention against Transactional
Crime (CTOC) as it has not
sought ratification. It was Mr ,
Nicholls' agreement that cn- '

that shows that the Bahamas
would be bound to that treaty.
According to Mr Nicholls even
if the Bahamas was a part of
the convention it could not b'e
applied retroactively. Mr
Nicholls also argued that the

not applicable. Mr Nicholls also
argued that under Bahamian
law the charges against Mr
Kozeny, for instance bribery are I
domestic in context and could
not relate to foreign officials.

ANGELO 'Jello' Burrows
has got off to a rough start in
his 2006 debut with the Chica-
go Cubs' minor league Day-
tona Cubs team ot Thursday.
On the road in the first of
their four games back-to-back
against the Brevard County
Manatees, the Cubs were
banged around 9-4 after being
Burrows, 25, was the second
relief pitcher to come into the
game. He lasted two innings,
giving up three runs (all
earned) on five hits in two
innings of work.
Traded from the Atlanta
Braves a year ago, Burrows
said he's enjoying his new
"Things are going pretty
good," he said. "It's just a mat-
ter of producing and waiting
for my opportunity."
With more than 100 games
to play during the season, Bur-
rows said he expects "to make
the adjustments as I go along
in the season and to finish
"Hopefully, I will get a pro-
motion before the year is out."
The Daytona Cubs is a sin-
gle A club located at the Jack-
ie Robinson Ballpark in
Orange Avenue in Daytona
Beach, Florida. They trail the
West Tenn Diamond Jaxx AA
and the Iowa Cubs AAA
At 6-foot-1 and 195-pounds,
Burrows has had to make an
adjustment from playing cen-
tre-field to pitching just before
he was traded by the Atlanta
Braves two years ago.
Burrows had served his first
six years in the minor league
with the Braves' organization,
but he said he's "enjoying the
scenery and the atmosphere
And if there's anything spe-

cific that Burrows has to work
on, he said the "instructional
league," advised him that he
has to develop a curve ball.
"They had me working a lot
on that in spring training
because they want me to get it
down pat. They tell me I
should be in double A, but I
have to produce and they will
hold up on their end of the
"But the curve ball is prob-
ably one of the hardest pitches
to get command off. If I can
get that down pat, I should be
okay. But as a relief pitcher,
you have no room for errors,
so I have to be focused and
prepared to play at all times."
Burrows, who hopes to
make up for his performance
this weekend when they con-.
tinue the four-game series
through Sunday against the
Brevard County, is now joined
by Antoan Richardson, who
is playing with the Augusta
GreenJackets single A club.

ern Conference before he was
drafted for the third time.
Burrows said he's delighted
to know that there's another
Bahamian playing in the
pipeline, especially someone
he grew.up playing against.
"To see him develop and
sharing the same goal is good,",
Burrows stated. "But I've been

Deliberately Misdirected Defense
Both sides vulnerable.

South West North East
14 Pass INT 2 T
34 Pass 44
Opening lead eight of hearts.
Basically, a defender's falsecard is
designed to mislead declarer without
fooling partner at the same time. On
rare occasions, however, the intent is
exactly the opposite, with the false-
card deliberately aimed at deceiving
partner without trying to mislead
declarer at all. .
Witness today's deal, where
South wound up in four spades after
East had overcalled in hearts. West
led the eight of hearts, but instead of
making the normal play of the jack at
trick one the lowest card from
equals by a defender not on lead -
East played the king!
This violation of standard proce-
dure by East was designed to create
the impression in West's mind that
declarer had the queen of hearts.
East's purpose was to induce West to
shift to another suit namely, clubs
- if West gained the lead.
Declarer took the first trick with
the ace of hearts, crossed to dummy
with a diamond and tried a spade
finesse. West won and, having cred-
ited South with the queen of hearts
after the play to the first trick, natu-
rally decided to look elsewhere for
additional tricks. The only realistic
possibility seemed to lie in clubs, so
he shifted to the club ten, whereupon
East took two clubs and a heart to set
the contract one trick.
Had East not intentionally de-
ceived his partner at trick one, West
might well have returned a second
heart after taking the spade king.
Declarer would then have had made
the contract, since East could collect
no more than a heart and a club
before South claimed the rest.
But as East hoped, his partner fell
right into the trap he had so skillfully
laid for him.
