RBDF plane


strayed into


Cuban airspace


Some friendly faces down on the farm


By MARK HUMES
A NEW turbo aircraft bought
for the Royal Bahamas Defence
Force has been grounded in
Nassau tor several nmonths'pat-
- ly because its pilots are on the
US stoplist, it emerged last
night.
During the brief time it was
operational, the plane was also
involved in two embarrassing
incidents when it strayed into
Cuban airspace.
Now the sleek King Air 350
aircraft stands on an apron at
Nassau International Airport
with a sunscreen fabric
stretched over its cockpit.
The astonishing disclosures
about the plane and its past
came from the permanent sec-
retary at the Ministry of Nation-
al Security, Mark Wilson. .
He admitted that Defence
Force airwing officers assigned
to fly the plane were on the, US
stoplist. And an incident in
Cuban airspace also factored
into its grounding.
Mr Wilson's admission came
after a source revealed to The
Tribune that a number of high-
ranking officers on the Royal
Bahamas Defence Force were
on the United States' stoplist.
Among them are a senior
officer and a former assistant
who were trained to fly the
grounded plane, according to
the source.
Additionally, in the perfor-.
mance of its surveillance duties,
it was alleged the aircraft was
flown into Cuban airspace on
at least two occasions, causing a
situation between the two
nations that eventually led its
grounding.
"Mr Mark Wilson seems to
be either in left field or the out-
field," said the source, "and a
Slot of questions need to be
answered by the permanent sec-
retary."
iThe source went on to ques-
tion why the Defence Force
would buy a civilian aircraft and
then outfit it to perform mili-
tary functions.
"Logically, it would seem
that if you are going to purchase
a military aircraft to do surveil-
lance, you don't go to a manu-
facture who manufactures civil-
ian aircraft, you should just pur-
chase a military aircraft, should-
n't you?" inquired the source.
Yesterday, before address-
ing the allegations, Mr Wilson
apologised for misinformation
he supplied to the newspaper
concerning the aircraft's loca-
tion.
Mr Wilson said it was his
understanding at the time of the
conversation that the aircraft
was off the island for repairs,
but he subsequently learned the
plane was, in fact, still at NIA.
After taking responsibility
for the erroneous information,


Mr Wilson answered questions
About the source's allegations
and other comments in the Tri-
bune article that were. ques-
tioned.
.' He began by clarif\ing ref-
erences to the FAA by saying:
"They had nothing to do with
the aircraft's grounding. The
problem is that questions arose
because of the mihtarN actsll-
ties of the aircraft, and the fact
that it was registered with
them."
For security purposes, Mr
Wilson wished to withhold
Details concerning the "military
activities" that led to problems,'
but said the aircraft had civil-.
ian registration and a mditary
number, because to bring it to
New Providence it had to be
registered as a civilian aircraft.
Acknowledging that the air-
craft was, in fact, air, orthy and
had been in operation before it
was grounded, Mr Wilson said:
"The people who flew the air-.
craft ran into difficulties that
cannot be revealed. The diffi-
culty arose in the course of the
aircraft doing its surveillance
duties:"
Mr Wilson said he was not at
Liberty to go into details, but
when particular questions were
put to him concerning the air-
craft-flying in breach of Cuban
airspace and with pilots who
were on the US stoplist, he
paused before speaking pos-
sibly as this information had.
previously been, classified.
Candidly, Mr Wilson said
there was an issue with the air-
craft flying into Cuban airspace
,because at the time it was reg-
istered as a civilian aircraft
despite having military identi-
fication.
He said the registration mat-
ter is now in the process of
being resolved, but wanted the
public to know that was only
one factor in the plane's
grounding.
Additionally, he admitted to
knowing of two pilots who may
have been on the US stoplist,
but he said that was something
he-could not report on present-
ly.
As to the feasibility of pur-
chasing a military craft from a
military manufacturer, Mr Wil-
son said the civilian craft was
bought because of economics.
He added: "A military air-
craft, I suspect, if we had built
that from scratch to specifica-
tions, would cost in the region
of $10 to $12 million.
"The difference is $12 mil-
lion and $5 million. There is no,
question about the savings. The
savings are significant, and it
would take less than $1 million
to refurbish the aircraft."
In the end, Mr Wilson said
he hoped a letter forwarded to

40 Haitians San Salvador


arerounded man sought
are-d. roand ........
:


AROUND 40 Haitians
were expected to be landed
in Nassau last night after
being rounded up in Abaco
as part of the government's
campaign against illegal inimi-
grants.
The group was said to be
aboard a Bahamas Fast Fer-
ries vessel out of Sandy Point.
"I' believe they were picked
up at Winding Bay," said a
well-placed source.
They were due to -land
around 10pim, having spent a
night in custody at Marsh
Harbour. Yesterday they
were taken to Sandy Point for
transfer to Nassau, where they
are expected to undergo pro-


TWO people were airlifted to Nassau
after their vehicle was involved in a "head.
on" crash in South Aridros.
Stedmand Forbes and a young child yet
to be identified were travelling in a car


cessing before repatriation.
The Abaco source said: "I
don't know whether these
people were beach-cleaners,
janitors or whatever. Howev-
er, I believe they were found
to have no official papers, so
were taken in as illegals."
New Immigration Minister
Shane Gibson has. vowed to
clear the country of illegal
immigrants.
Abaco, where Haitians first
settled as lumber workers
more than 40 years ago; has
several immigrant settlements,
including The Mud and
Pigeon Pea at Marsh Har-
bour, where hundreds of
families live.


POLICE in Fort Lauderdale
want to question a San Salvador
man in connection with the
murder of a 21-year-old woman.
Homicide' detectives are
looking for Bahamian Curtis
Nairn, 40, who they believe can
help inquiries into the death of
Ja'Vaughn Hobson, whose
body was discovered on
Wednesday in the parking lot
of a Fort Lauderdale apartment
complex.
Nairn, who lives in Fort Laud-
erdale, is married to a teacher at
San Salvador high school.
Ms Hobson's body was
found at the Venice Club apart-
ments, after 911 dispatchers
received a call reporting


heading north on Wednesday afternoon.
The second vehicle, driven by Mr "Slim"
Ritchie, was heading south.
Local MP Whitney Bastian said Mr
Forbes received a broken shoulder in the


that a female was screaming;
A friend of the victim told US
media that Ms Hobson, an inter-
national business major at Flori-
da International University, had
been dating Nairn for the last
six months and the two always
appeared happy together.
However, Florida police have
not yet released any informa-
tion on what kind of relation-
ship the victim and the suspect
had.
The friend also told. police
that she thinks Nairn may try
to leave the US to fly to:the
Bahamas.
Police believe that Nairn is
driving a newer model grey
vehicle.

Action is demanded to stop Gold




Rock Creek from decaying further


* By DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport
Reporter
FREEPORT An outspoken
Grand Bahama resident is
demanding that immediate
action is taken to prevent the
further deterioration at Gold
Rock Creek in East Grand
Bahamna.
Public relations businessman
Peter Adderley has expressed


strong concerns over what he
says is the destruction of one of
the most pristine beaches in the
country.
He claims that the since the
production and filming of Dis-
nev's rates ofhe Caribbean II
an.d/f, 'st ver.,ithe once beau-
tif fild Rodk'Creek beach -
which is featured on the Min-
istry of Tourism's website has
been ruined.
"I have a personal and pro-


fessional obligation to the pro-
motion of the island of Grand
Bahama," said Mr Adderley.
When you go to the Bahamas
website, and in particular, the
Ministry of Tourism's website
for Grand Bahama, the Gold
Rock Creek beach is highlight-
ed. What is on that site does not
exist anymore. It has been
ruined; it has been damaged,
and somebody needs to take
action now."

Mr Adderley says he intends
to make a presentation to Dis-
ney's representatives "in a mat-
ter of days" of What has hiap-
pened at Gold Rock Creek.
"Based on my research, Dis-
ney is an environmentally-
friendly operation worldwide.
And I am advised that they are
not aware of the cruel impact
it has had on this eastern area."
he said.
However Paul Quigley. chief
operating officer at Bahamas
Film Studios,,said the beach "is
not destroyed by any means.",
He explained that the only
change that has taken place is
that some small rocks have been
deposited on the beach.
Mr Quigley said it is not
known whether the rocks came
from the excavation of the
water tank constructed b, the
studio for filming, or whether
they came in after Hurricane
Wilma.
According to Mr Adderley
Mr Quigley's denial "does not
stand up with common sense".
"Since his investment here
and the production, things have
changed drastically\ with the
beauty; with the environmental
status; and with the state of this
place," he said.
Mr Adderley said residents
are very concerned about the
state of the beach, and the envi-
ronmental impact on the creek
and water table.
'He claimed that some locals
have been denied access to their
property, because stone has'
been piled up along a %erge by
contractors hired by the Min-
istry of Works.
"These persons have invested
many years ago in what was
once prime property, or per-

Creek

haps the greatest charm of our
properties here on Grand
Bahama," he said.
Mr Adderley said residents
have written to all the relevant
authorities and have only been
given "lip service from passive
politicians".
"They have gotten token
town-meetings but have gotten
no results; no comfort, and no
confidence in what has been
said to them because of the lip
ser ice.
"There is a'repiesenfation of.
a cross section of people-. nclud-
ing foreign 'i:nvestork.-prma-
nent residentsand Bahamians.
And they have done their best
to give it a diplomatic approach
because they, arid I, appreciate
the balance between investment
development and our environ-
ment."
"I hate e\ern confidence that
should the prime minister take a


personal visit to this area and
examine closely what has hap-
pened and the potential of the
damage in the future, he would
be ashamed of what has been
allowed to happen, and would
put an end to anyfurther devel-
opment without a clear scien-
tific explanation of what the-
potential damage is."
Mr Adderley said he believes
the entire situation is being
treated as a trivial matter.
"The Grand Bahama Port
Authority should have some
obvious interest in this as well
because they own property out
here. And so the chairman Julian
Francis and the prime minister
need to come and see for them-
selves with the naked eye.
"And I have confidence that
once they would done that.
changes would be made and
changes would be made imme-
diately." he said.

said.
The resident said that
although the people of Bozine
Town are currently those
affected by irregularities in
land titles, they are not the only
ones.
"This has far reaching impli-
cations for Bahamians. In this
case two sets of people who

can check if there is a caution
on the land which basically says
buyer beware there is no clear
title on this land," she said.
In the case of the plaintiff
Rev Hayden Dean, one resi-
dent told The Tribune, he is
the only living founding mem-
ber of Bozine Town and the
title to his land has in the past
been recognized by both the
Supreme Court and the Regis-
trar General's office.
"The people who were the
founding residents of Bozine
Town were there when there
was no Harrold Road, they had
to cut through dirt roads in
order to get there. They


Taking this into account, and
noting the fact that another mat-
ter has already been set for Mon-

in the 1950s bought the land,"
she said.
One commentator close to
the case said that many of the
people in Bozine Town applied
and were granted mortgages
because of the land titles that
they hold.
"So this not only effects us, it
affects the banks, the Bahamas
Mortgage Corporation, which
is part of the government," the
commentator said.
The Bozine Town Steering
Committee is currently prepar-
ing for a meeting next week in
which the community will seek
to determine the best way for-
ward in the case.

DESCRIBING the Supreme
Court's ruling in the Bozine
Town case a "dangerous prece-
.dent" for the Bahamas, resi-
dents of the area said they feel
betrayed b\ the failure of con-
secuti e go% ernments to estab-
lish a proper land registration
system.
The Supreme Court on
-Thutsdavruled that the resi-
.dents ha%'e no legal title to the
land on which h some have
lived for more than 50 years.
The area has been the focus
of a massive land dispute since
October, 2004, when the 500
or so residents received letters
from the law firm Lockhart
and Munroe, informing them
that its clients, the Harrold
Road Land Development
Company, (LANDCO) had
been granted certificates of title
to property between Bozine
Town, Knowles Drive and
Harrold Road.
The residents fought back by
organising a steering commit-
tee, staging demonstrations
and raising funds to secure
legal counsel for the Supreme
Court case against the devel-
opment company.
However, the residents were
dealt a major blow this week
when Justice Jeanne Thomp-
son ruled to dismiss the action
against LANDCO.
Speaking with The Tribune
yesterday, a concerned mem-
ber of the Bozine community
and relative to one of the four
plaintiffs said that this case
demonstrates the urgent need
for the Bahamas to adopt a
land registration system.
"We in the Bahamas think
we are so modern, so much
more sophisticated than other
Caribbean countries, but the

Blair

FROM page four
Then a Blair administration
supposedly tough on terrorism
found itself scrambling to
explain why it had allowed
more than 1,000 foreign crimi-
nals to stay in Britain instead
of deporting them after they left
prison.
Most recently there was par-
ticularly embarrassing publicity
relg;ted to revelations that
Deputy Prime Minister John
Prescott had an extramarital
affair With a-secretary.
All this led to a bloody bat-
tering in recent local elections -
iq which Labour lost 300 local
council seats across England -
apid, an even bloodier reshuf-
fling, of Blair's cabinet.
Blair dismissed his,ihome
affairs minister, Charles clarke,.
while demoting Jack Straw, his
foreign secretary, who became
leader of the House of Com-
mons. Outraging his critics,
Blair allowed Prescott to retain
his ministerial salary and perks
even after he was stripped of
many of his responsibilitie.
iPolitical analysts say that in
light of: all the, bad publiclyy
Brown has grow in creasingly
impatient to step in as prime
minister.
.,i At the same time there are a
growing number of restive
Labour Party colleagues who
have said publicly that they are
fed up with Blair's refusal to set
a firm timetable for his depar-
tpre from office.
SThey say the uncertainty sur-
rounding Blair's departure date
has hindered the government's
ability to move forward on
issues such as health care
reform.
, There also are concerns that
Blair, who just celebrated his
53rd birthday, might be seek-
ing to surpass Thatcher's 11-
year record in office by staying
on until at least the end of
November 2008.
Blair has hinted he could
stand down as early as next
Summer although he has con-
sistently refused to set any firm
dates, claiming that doing so
would paralyse the government.

Police to come under



annual scrutiny of



parliament with act


Under the proposed Police Ser-
vice Act, the performance of the
Royal Bahamas Police Force would
be subject to the scrutiny'of parlia-
mentarians on an annual basis,
according to Attorney General and
Minister of Legal Affairs Allyson
Maynard-Gibson.,
Mrs Ma. naird-Gibson said the Bill,
which aims at improving trans-
parenl. aid accountability, makes
provision for a report on the police
force to be submitted each year for
debate in the House of Assembly.
"There,are times when the police
act outside the bounds of acceptable
behavior or. illegally. No amount of
legislation can prevent such incidents
from occurring. What is important is
That when they occur the officer that
may be involved is held accountable
for his actions before the courts"
Mrs Ma\ nard-Gibson said.
She said the pro\ sion for the
report is included in Clause Three of
the Bill, which also proposes that
the responsibility for "generally
securing the maintenance of an ade-
quate and efficient police service for
the Bahamas" fall to a National
Security Council, in consultation
with the commissioner of police.
This, the minister added, in no
way diminishes the powers of the
commissioner.
Section 65 of the Bill, she contin-

LCfiA


* ALLYSON Maynard-Gibson

ued, provides for the appointment
of a qualified external inspector
whose functions will be to inspect
and to report to the minister of
National Security on the "efficiency
and effectiveness of the police force."
"In keeping with our determina-
tion to ensure that our police officers
are held accountable, Clause 80 of
the Bill speaks to the appointment
by the governor, general of a police
complaints inspectorate that is inde-
pendent of the police.


"The inspectorate can request any
information or documents with
respect to complaints against the
police and will be responsible for
reviewing the investigation and
determination of the complaints by
the Complaints and Corruption
Branch to assure that investigations
are conducted impartially," Mrs
Maynard-Gibson added.
She also noted that the Police Act
was passed in 1965, when the
Bahamas was a British colony, and
therefore the Act adopted the basic
principles of the British police force.
"Since then, the British police force
has undergone a tremendous meta-
morphosis both in terms of its man-
agement structure and systems of
operation. The same, however, cannot
be said of the Bahamas police force.
"It is clear to all well-thinking cit-
izens that the lime has undoubtedly '
come to bring our present police
force into the 21st century", she said.
"This Bill represents the new
approach by our government and
demonstrates.our sensitivity to our
peculiar challenges, our own culture
and the need of our own people."
"We only have to switch on our
television sets and we see how com-
munities and societies in many parts
of the w world are falling apart because
of the absence of law and order,"
the minister pointed out.

Government to


crack down on


illegal fishing


charter boats


TOURISTS who operate illegal boat charters
and plunder local fish stocks could fall foul of
new set of hard-hitting regulations this sum-'
mer.
Fisheries Minister Leslie Miller was in Aba-
co this week to discuss the concerns of local
fishermen who claimed their livelihoods were
being hit by the island's tourism boom.
.The minister held meetings in Marsh Har4
bour and Treasure Cay at which several pro-
posals were discussed including a clampdown
on charters and restrictions on catches.
An island source said: "Fishermen are wor-
ried that their industry is on the line because of
the amount of recreational fishing that's going
on here."
One proposal is to change catch limits from a
"per person per day" basis to "per vessel pet
day." This means each boat will be limited to six
crawfish and three conch per day.
Seasonal catches of snapper, grouper and
grunt will be restricted to 20 pounds per vesseJ
instead of 20,pounds per person.
Similarly, dolphin, kingfish and yahoo face
reductions to six per vessel per day instead of sic
per person. These limits would apply to all non-
Bahamians, including those fishing from a
Bahamian boat.
Authorised fishing tournaments fall outside
the restrictions but would be subject to pre-
arranged limits.
It was further proposed to limit the amount of
fish taken out of the Bahamas by visitors.'
Commercial fishermen also want to thwart
tourists who arrive in the Bahamas for the start
of the crawfish season on August 1. They say
fishing at this time is so intense that the visitors
"negatively impact" catches of local fishermen.
One suggestion wasthat tthe tourist crawfish
season should start in October.
The minister was told that tourists also raid
crawfish habitats laid on the seabed by local
fishermen, harvestingthe catch.
In addition to calling for tougher enforce-
ment, local fishermen want better management
of conch resources on the Little Bahama Bank
and a full ban on lobster possession'during the
closed season.
Foreigners operating fishing charters witl-
out work permits or other entitlement will be
seen.as violating Bahamian law and dealt'with
accordingly.
Head Abaco fisheries officer Carol Laing,
who was at both meetings, advocates aggressive
pursuit of fishing violators.
Mr Miller said new restrictions would be in
Splae by June: -- ....

Crooked Island's





property boom




takes shape


* by TRIBUNE STAFF
WRITER
FOR generations it was the
"sleepy hollow" of the
Bahamas. Now it's boom
island.
Eight years ago a man
bought a humble home there
for $25,000. Today, he would-
n't take less than $250,000 for
it.
In the 1960s it was consid-
ered so remote that land was
virtually worthless. But a big
house there recently changed
hands for $2.5 million. And
even the smallest seafront plot
will set you back between
$100,000 and $150,000.
Where is it? Crooked Island,
a scrub-covered outpost once
famed for sandflies, mosqui-
toes and a way of life
unchanged since the 1700s.
Now residents claim it is the
island of the future, a place so
alluring that foreigners snap
up land as soon as it hits the
market.
"Things here have changed
so much," an island source
said yesterday, "The real
estate business has gone sky-
high. The last year or so, land
prices have gone out of sight.
"It seems to me that every-
thing is mushrooming and I
don't know why. Foreigners
love the place so much that
they buy expensive homes and
come here two or three times a
year."
One of the driving factors
in the boom is the renovation
and upgrading of the Pittstown
Inn, which is now owned by
Bojangles restaurant chain
owner Cam McRea.


He bought the home of for-
mer inn owner D K Aldridge
for $2.5 million. Another
sumptuous property at Gun
Bluff changed hands recently
at $950,000. And yet another
home is for sale at $750,000.
New property owners have
come from New Orleans,
Baton Rouge, Jacksonville and
the far west of the United
States.
As their home cities get
busier, they seek the good life
on an island where two cars
make a queue and breakfast
can be hauled out of the sea
on the end of a line.

Developing

It seems second-home
development is now spreading
south through the Bahamas.
With Grand Bahama, New
Providence and Abaco already
among favourite destinations,
investors are looking increas-
ingly toward the remoter
southern islands for something
really different.
The source said: "It's taken
a long time. For generations
Crooked Island was com-
pletely stagnant.
"Eight years ago if I said I
had a piece of property for
sale, no-one would have been
interested. Now it's worth its
weight in gold. We never
thought property would be
what it's worth now."
In the new Pittstown devel-
opment, condos will sell for
around $500,000. The inn itself
will become a hotel and pri-
vate pilots will be attracted by
a much-improved airstrip.


At another point on the
island a four-store mall is being
built something unheard of in
those parts.
"Traditionally, shops have
been little mom-and-pop
places," said the islander, "now
we're getting a restaurant, dress
shop and beauty store. It looks
like Crooked Island is taking
off."
Along with the foreign
investors has come a much live-
lier social life. During "the sea-
son" October until April -
cocktail parties dominate the
social agenda.
During the hot summer
months the island falls quiet
again.
"All round, though, there's
no better place on earth than
Crooked Island," said an
investor. "The only surprise for
me is that it's taken so long for
others to find out what an
amazing place this is."
Less than 40 years ago, peo-
ple were still using kerosene
lamps. When the first refrigera-
tor arrived, islanders who didn't
know what cold was bought ice-
cubes just to experience this
alien sensation.
Now the island is fast catching
up, with extra airlift about to
be laid on for increased traffic
from Nassau.
"We've had a situation in
recent times when passengers
have been left behind by
Bahamasair because the plane
has been packed," said a resi-
dent.
"Now we are about toget an
additional flight per week
because more and more people
want to travel to and from
Crooked Island."

tiny cruise ship will add S4t1
Lucia and Antigua to its week-
long southern Caribbean itin-
erary in January, according iq
Associated Press.
Meanwhile, Aruba the
port of call farthest southon
the 101,350-ton ship's route--
will be removed from the 2007
itinerary due to rising fuel costs,
.company spokeswoman Jen-
nifer de la Cruz said.
The secondary reason is this
itinerary has existed for five
years and we tend to change
and modify.itineraries after a
time to'freshen them and create
new market opportunities," de
la Cruz said.
St. Lucia Tourism Minister
Phillip Pierre said the cruise
ship could bring 2,642 passen-
gers to the island each week

a St.Lucia delegation to Florida
to request that the Miami-based

largest cruise operator put
the island back on a weekly itin-
erary. The Caribbean island was
removed from the company's
schedule in 2002.
.Last year, St. Lucia: saw an
1. 8 percent drop in cruise ship
arrivals, although the island's
tourism sector grew by.6.3 per-
.cent over 2004, Pierre said.

* By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter
ACE Cardinal Gilbert is probably
still thanking right fielder Ghandi
Williams for his defensive efforts on
Thursday night.
Facing a tough situation, holding
onto a 3-1 lead going into the top of the
seventh inning, Williams snagged down
two fly balls to stop a late surge by the
TBS Truckers in the men's feature
game at the Churchill Tener Knowles
National Softball Stadium.
Williams' defensive stoppers enabled
the former champions Arawaks to hold
on for a 3-2 victory to push their record
to 2-0 as they join the Stingrays Sport-
ing Club at the top of the two-week
old league.
The whole fury erupted after TBS
got two unearned runs on two costly
errors on a line drive from right field-
er Adrian Hutchinson to cut the deficit
to 2-1.
Then Williams, who came in to
replace starter Andy Percentie, had to
race to the fence in centre field to snag
down the first big defensive play on a
shot from Charlie Rolle that clearly
had a home run written on it.
After TBS losing pitcher Leroy
Thompson got a bloop single to start
another rally, Gilbert got Truckers'
centre fielder Ramon Storr to fly out to
Michael Thompson in centre as he
made up for one of the two misuses
.earlier.
* A decision was then made to put
Truckers' shortstop Marvin 'Tougie'
Wood on base with an intentional walk
and catcher Jamal 'Sarge' Johnson
worked Gilbert for a full count walk to
load the bases.
That brought TBS' left fielder.Philip
Culmer to the plate and Gilbert got
him to hit a fly ball to right into the
gloves of Williams, as the Truckers fell
victim for the second time in as many
games.
"I didn't really warn him that we


were going t6 walk Tougie, even
though he's a good pitcher and he felt
he could have: pitched to him," said
Arawaks' catcljer Angelo Dillett, who
spoke on behalf of a shy Gilbert.
"Percentage wise, Tougie was a
more disciplined batter in that situation
than Jamal. I thought we had Jamal,
but we didn't.get the call. But we got
the big defensive plays from Ghandi
and that was all that mattered."
Dillett, whd himself came up with a
diving catch on the first out of the first
of three consecutive 1-2-3 rally. killers
against the Truckers from the third to
the fifth inning, said it was a good
morale-booster for the Arawaks.
"Defence is {he key. I'm happy that
we came out with the win, but I'm not
happy with those errors that we made,"
he stated. "If the shortstop (Julian Col-
lie) and the outfielder (Mike Thomp-
son) had stopped the ball, we wouldn't
have been in this tight situation."
While the Awaraks are cruising right
along, the Truckers are off to a slow
start and manager Perry Seymour said
there is a logical reason.
"No bats. No bats. That's what hap-
pen when you don't practice," he
admitted. "We'haven't picked up the
bat since last year. But eventually we
will come around. It's just a lack of
practice."
Seymour said it was evident when
they sent the,bulk of their line-up
against Gilbert in the seventh and they
didn't win the game.
The game was actually won for Del
Sol in the bottom of the fifth when Dil-
lett ripped a two-out triple and scored
on an error that put Gilbert on base.
It was their fourth and final run.
Their three other runs came in the
second that was highlighted by a two-
run double from Percentie, plating
Ramon 'Shaky' Johnson and Michael
Thompson, who singled and doubled
respectively.
Johnson's single was actually a run-
producer as he drove home Gilbert, who


got safely on base on a one-out error.
Before they came up with the two


errors that enabled the Truckers to get
back into the game, the Arawaks pro-


duced a big

more exciting this year.
Commissioner Burkett Dorsett pro-i
duced the first half schedule of games
on Thursday night at the Churchill Ten-
er Knowles Stadium and included were
the amendments to the rules and regu-
lations.
The rules and regulations, which are a
part of the league's "Zero Tolerance",
were passed during a "Special Call"
meeting with the teams and will take
effect immediately.
One of the changes came under the
game duration.
If a team is leading by 15 or more runs
after three innings, 12 runs after four
and seven after five, the game will be
stopped. This rule, however, does not
apply to the All-Star game or the play-off
and championship series, which will be
played to the entire seven innings.
"The managers felt that some of the
games are too long and boring and it
goes well beyond the midnight hour,"
Dorsett pointed out.
"So they decided that these changes
will help to speed up the games and


"That was put to the managers by the
association executives for constitution
amendments and it was agreed to by a
vote of 9-1," Dorsett confirmed.
"The membership agreed to adopt the
membership clause, which we.hope to
follow to the tee. It was something that
they wanted and they instructed the
executives to implement it."
Dorsett, however, said that because
the season is only two weeks old, they
have only had one issue to deal with and
that hasn't been done yet because league
president Steve 'Garbo' Coakley was
currently off the island.
"It's not a situation that dealt with a
problem at the plate," said Dorsett,
whose office would have allowed him to
take care of the issue if it was on the
field. "It's a constitution matter, so the
letter has to be turned out to the presi-
dent for him and his executives to make
the decision and inform the teams
involved."
Dorsett declined to state who the mat-
ter concerned, indicating that Coakley
should be prepared to make a decision


by next week once he would,had perused
the information on his return.
Dorsett also indicated that while the
Electro Telecom Wildcats have paid
the fine for their defaulted game at the
beginning of the season, the Electro
Telecom dorcy Park Bdyz' brothers
Mario and Andy Ford have appealed


I.
their indefinite suspension for their ;,
actions during the awards presenta- .oi:
tion.
However, Dorsett said he is not at :.
liberty to disclose the results of the y.
Appeals Committee because it also has (.,
to come from Coakley, who appointed ,
the members. ;:oc

Wildcats carry on defence of title




with victory over Lady Sharks


* By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter
WITH the controversy to the start of
their season behind them, the New
Providence Softball Association ladies'
defending champions Electro Telecom
Wildcats made a successful debut on
the field.
The Wildcats, however, had to dig
down deep to hold off the hapless
Proper Care Pool Lady Sharks 9-6 on
Thursday night at the Churchill Tener
Knowles National Softball Stadium.
"This is the Wildcats. There's no
doubt that we will turn things around,"
said coach Anthony Bullard, about the
defaulted loss they suffered against the
DHL Brackettes in the league's sea-
son-opener two weeks ago.
"Everything is behind us now.


Everything is striahgt ahead for us. We
don't expect to have any problems
from here on in."
The Wildcats had to pay 50 per cent
of their team registration fee after the
league felt they deliberately decided
to default the season opener on Satur-
day, April 29.
But playing on the field for the first
time, the.Wildcats took a quick 6-0
lead after the first two innings, but
struggled the rest of the way as the
Lady Sharks surged back.
Bullard said it definitely wasn't what
they expected, but "we just stuck with
it, even thought we didn't get some of
the calls we thought we should have
gotten."
Electro Telecom used the game as a
tune-up for tonight's much anticipated
feature showdown against the Bom-


mer Swingers, who are currently lead-
ing the way with a 2-0 win-loss record.
Second sacker Hyacinth Farrington
put the Wildcats on the scoreboard
first when she singled with two out in
the top of the first and caught a ride
home on first sacker Chryshann Per-
centie's bloop RBI single.
The Wildcats would extend their
lead to 6-0 with five additional runs in
the second as they batted around the
clock.
It started with catcher Dornette
Edwards' triple and followed by left
fielder Natasha Sears' one-out two-run
triple, winning pitcher Mary 'Cruise'
Edgecombe's two-run single and third
sacker Linda Knowles RBI single.
Although manager Steve 'Bishop'
Beneby watched as his Proper Care
Pool blew a golden opportunity to


score in the second, the Lady Sharks
eventually got a RBI single from sec-
ond sacker Shirley Stubbs in a two-run
fourth.
They then came up with a three-run
fifth inning on consecutive RBI ground
out from third sacker Kelly Smith, RBI
triple from shortstop Vonetta Nairn
and another run-producing single from
Stubbs.
But Electro Telecom went wild again
in the sixth, adding three more runs to
push their lead to 9-5. Percentie came
through with a two-run double and
Edwards added a RBI single.
Proper Care Pool put their final run
on the scoreboard in the bottom of the
frame as losing pitcher Alex Taylor
knocked in centre fielder Samantha
Newbold from second on her double
with a bloop RBI single.


Gadlin sets world record in 100


Taylor, who tried to score on an in-
the-park home run on a shot to right-
centre field, but was tagged out at the
plate and only credited with a triple in
the first, said it was another disap-
pointing loss.
"I thought we played very well,
except for the errors that caused them
to get some runs that they shouldn't
have gotten," she reflected.
S"But overall, we played good. I just
think we waited a little too long before
we hit the ball. The game is made of
hits, runs and errors and we were the
ones who made the most errors, while
they got the most hits and runs."
Back in the league after a year's
break and teaming up with her mother,
Sherry Beneby, Taylor is confident that
the Lady Sharks will be able to turn
around their dismal showing.

A 2.
The bidding:
East South West North
Pass 1 NT Pass 3 NT
Opening lead six of spades.
Declarer frequently holds up an
ace in notrump play, but there are
times when it is much wiser to take
the ace at once rather than withhold
it. The issue can be resolved only if
declarer carefully weighs the merits'
of each case separately before com-
mitting himself one way or the other.
Consider this deal where West
leads the spade six against three
notrump. Should South play low
from dummy at trick one, or should
he play the ace?
W- When the deal occurred, declarer
ducked, and East won,the trick with
the queen. Back came a spade, cov-
ered by the nine and ten, and declarer


ducked again. A third spade then
drove out the ace.
South had no choice but to try the
diamond finesse, and when West
won the ten with the king and cashed
his remaining two spades, the con-
tract went down one.
Subsequent analysis revealed that
declarer would have made the con-
tract had he played the ace of spades
at trick one and then tried the dia-
mond finesse. With the spades
blocked, East-West could not have
run the suit and South would have
scored nine tricks. The question,
therefore, is whether South erred by
holding up the ace initially.
The answer lies in which play -
going up with the ace or ducking it
- offers the better chance for the
contract in the long run. On that
basis, the right play is to take the ace
at once.
South should reason that assum-
ing West's six is his fourth-best
spade, East has only one card higher
than that the seven, ten, queen or
king. Presumably it is not the seven,
since with the K-Q-10 West would
have led the king rather than the six.
Therefore, East's high spade is either
the ten, queen or king.
Declarer can gain by ducking at
trick one only if East's high spade is
the ten. But if East has either the
-queen or king, playing the ace.
assures the contract. The odds are
thus 2-to-1 in favor of playing the
ace, making it by far the better play.

pressed to resist you. Watch out for
some sparks!
CANCER June 22/July 22

little expensive, but is it fair to put
a price on fun and excitement?
There's a chance at romance, too.

der to cry on every once in a while.
Others stand ready to help, and a

over from the beginning.

nicely to you in turn. A romantic
surprise awaits you on Friday.

they're having a hard time trying
to figure you out.
PISCES Feb 19/March 20
There is room enough in the world
for everyone's opinion, Pisces.
Instead of arguing, you're better off
going your way and leaving others to
go theirs. That way, everybody wins.
