'Balancing act'


on diplomatic


front continues


THE Bahamas is expected to
open an embassy in Cuba on
Monday, continuing the pre-
carious balance of diplomatic
relations with the communist
nation and the United States.
A delegation of officials led
by Foreign Affairs Minister
t Fred Mitchell will travel to
Havana for the official open-
ing.

Defence

Force


abuse

denied
By Karan Minnis
Tribune Staff Reporter
ALL allegations of abuse
in connection with the arrest
of a woman Royal Bahamas
Defence Force have been
denied.
Speaking to The Tribune
yesterday, Deputy Prime
Minister and Minister of
National Security Cythina
Pratt said there had been no
official report of abuse.
"In the report that I got,
nothing like that was report-
ed," she said. "From what I
understand there are rules
and regulations in the
Defence Force and if one
falls short of those rules
then, of course, action will
be taken, but no female was
beaten up.
"They (the officers) went
to do their duty and she was
brought into the Defence
Force for questioning. It had
nothing to do with anybody
attacking anybody."
Yesterday it was report-
ed that the woman officer.
was arrested on Wednesday
by three RBDF officers
while on duty at the Min-
istry of Foreign Affairs.
According to officials, the
officer had been ordered to
return to the base to face
charges of violating RBDF
regulations. However, she
had declined to obey orders.
Under Section 79B of the
RBDF Regulation Act, it is
reportedly permitted to
arrest an officer, using
appropriate force, who
intentionally ignores a direct
order, and according to Mrs
Pratt that is all that hap-
pened.
"We have disciplinary

Embassy in Cuba fulfils a public
promise by the government in
this regard and follows more
than 30 years of cordial and cor-
rect diplomatic relations
between the Bahamas and
Cuba, beginning in 1974," said a
government statement.
Since the beginning of this
year, the Bahamas has been
caught in a diplomatic tug-ot-
war between the US and Cuba.
The country has been in the
uncomfortable position of bal-
ancing its own immigration
agreements with Cuba and the
political strength of the South
Florida. Ctban lobby in the case
of the two Cuban dentists held
at Carmichael Road Detention
Centre.
Cuba then requested the
Bahamas' Vote in the election
of the newly-formed Human
Rights Commission, which the
US boycotted over concern that
countries like Cuba, which
America claims has a dubious
human rights record, would be
elected.
In fact, opposition leader
Hubert Ingraham, commenting
on this issue, said that Cuba,
because of its human rights
record, would not have dared
to ask an FNM government to
vote for it.
Mr Ingraham further threat-
ened that, if elected, he would
downgrade the embassy in
Havana to a consular office.
Nevertheless, each year many
Bahamians travel to Cuba for
education, health care, trade
and tourism, the statement not-,
ed.
The embassy will serve the
needs of Bahamians with regard
to Cuba and is expected to
greatly facilitate trade, travel
and the management of various
diplomatic agreements between
the two countries, it said.
In addition, the embassy is
expected to be of service to
Bahamians incarcerated in
Cuba..
The statement added: "After
a distinguished record of per-
formance in the foreign and
public service, Ambassador
Carlton Wright and his wife
Audrey Wright have now suc-
cessfully pioneered the estab-
lishment of the Bahamas
Embassy in Cuba.
"Ambassador Wright will be
joined by vice-consul Nestor
Sands, bilingual secretary Shari
Hall and attach Able Seaman
Oral Woods in staffing the
embassy.
"Chanelle Brown will be
transferring later in the year
from the Bahamas Embassy in
Washington DC, as second sec-
retary/vice-consul."
Beginning on Monday, July
24, the Bahamas Embassy in
Havana is expected to offer a
full range of consular and diplo-
matic services to Bahamians
and other nationals in Cuba
with an interest in the Bahamas.

CLAIMING to have lost over
$1,000 from his personal savings,
a man has closed his account at
Scotiabank on East Bay Street,
stating that the bank's response
to his plight was "insufficient".
Lester Perigord, a bellman and
physical trainer, explained that
on Thursday he withdrew $1,300
from his account, leaving
$1,070.76.
However, when he returned
to his bank yesterday, he claimed
his account showed a balance of
only $57.76.
Obviously agitated, Mr Perig-
ord, who has since closed his
account, said that he spoke with
a manager at the bank, who
explained that they would have
to do a "four to six week inves-
tigation".
Verifying this information, the
senior manager of marketing and
public relations Deborah Woods
said that Mr Perigord's bank
card was not used in a Scotia-
bank machine and therefore it


will take them some time to
investigate the claim.
According to Mr Perigord, he
had been banking with Scotia-
bank for years, and this was the
first time that anything of this
nature had ever happened to
him.
"A thousand dollars is no little
bit of money. I'm trying to figure
out how someone can go into
your account. This is something
that isn't supposed to be hap-
pening," he said.
When speaking with a manag-
er at the East Bay Street branch,
Mr Perigord said that he was told
that there was no guarantee that
he would get his money back,
but that it was "a possibility".
"But in the meantime, what
am I supposed to do?" he asked.
Ms Woods explained that first
the bank would investigate to
see if the specified funds were
there in the first place, if anyone
else was authorised to remove
funds, and obviously a review of
the history of the account to ver-
ify where or when the funds
could have been removed.


Air fares feel


oil price pinch


By ROYANNE
FORBES -DARVILLE
THE SOARING cost of fuel
on the international market
could cause airfares to skyrock-
et, local charter companies told
The Tribune yesterday.
Overnight Thursday a barrel
of fuel jumped from $76 to $78
in the global market.
The $2 increase could have
an adverse effect on the local
travel industry, some charter
operators said.
But Henry Woods, managing
director of Bahamasair, said the
national flag carrier, for the
time being, will continue to
absorb fuel surcharges.
"An increase has not been
discussed despite a slight
increase in the fuel surcharge
over the past months," Mr
Woods told The Tribune yes-
terday.
However, some local charter
companies have already start-
ed passing on the overhead
expense of fuel to their cus-
tomers.
Terry Brown, supervisor of
LeAir Charter, said the airline


recently increased the cost of
tickets due the recent fuel hike
"Ticket costs just went up
about two weeks ago and it's a
direct result of the increase of
fuel," Ms Brown said.
"For example, Great Har-
bour Cay to chart a five-seater
there was $350. Now in the
same size plane it is $400."
She explained that in some
instances ticket prices have
climbed by at least 40 per cent.
"Mayaguana was $1,800 for
the five-seater, but it is now
$2,220," Ms Brown said. "The
company has printed new price
changes which seem to have
gone well with our clients. We
haven't had any negative
response to these prices yet."
While Western Air has-
increased children's airfares by
$20, adult travel costs at that
charter company were not .
adjusted.
A ticket agent at the West-
ern Air counter at Lynden Pin-
dling International Airport said:
"The price was $30 for children

Inmate's







.treatment







allegations







answered *


DEATH row inmate For-
rester Bowe was back in
Supreme Court yesterday, as
prosecutors sought to address
allegations of his inhumane
treatment at Her Majesty's
Prison.
In response to earlier allega-
tions raised in the Supreme
Court that Bowe was without
ventilation to his cell because
of wooden doors on his cell
block, prosecutor Francis Cum-
berbatch told the court that he
Jiad been informed by deputy
superintendent of the prison
Charles Rolle, that orders had
been given to keep the doors
open at all times.
Bowe's lawyer Gina Morley
had stated previously that their
were three wooden doors on
the D block which were block-
ing ventilation and that one


of them was directly in front of.
Bowe' cell. In regards to Bowe's
claims that despite a judge's
order, his court documents
relating to his Privy Council
case had not been returned to
him, Mr Cumberbatch said
prison authorities appear not to
know anything about it.
Morley claimed yesterday
that her clients' visitation rights
are also being limited, that he is
being denied a full hour of exer-
cise and is not allowed to exer-
cise on weekends.
To these claims, Mr Cumber-
batch again pointed to the Jan-
uary 17 prison-break and
Bowe's breach of prison rules
as a probable cause for these
restrictions.
Justice Jon Isaacs expressed
his concern over the claim that
Bowe was being denied venti-


lation to his cell.
He said that it would be in
the best interest of both the
prosecutor and the defence
lawyer to visit the prison to see
just how the doors are affect-
ing ventilation.
The judge said that he knows
the cell-doors'consist not only of
bars, but also metal plates. He
questioned the need for wooden
doors on death row at all.
Mr Cumberbatch said he saw
no need for the wooden doors
on death row and suggested that
the doors be removed.
The prosecutor also said he
would investigate the allegation
that deputy superintendent
Rolle's orders to have the doors
remain open at all times were
not being adhered to.
Bowe is expected to return
to court nextiweek.


Construction starts



on Fox Hill court


ByEKRYSTELROLLE ,:

FOUR years after pledging
to deliver a courthouse that will
"eliminate the potential risk"
of prisoners eluding officers,
Deputy Prime Minister Cynthia
Pratt said government is mak-
ing good on that promise.
Mrs Pratt reported yesterday
that work began last month on
the court next to Her Majesty's
Prison.
The new facility, she said, is
being constructed on the site of
Sthe old fire station next to the
SSandilands Rehabilitation Cen-
Stre on Fox Hill Road.
According to Mrs Pratt, the
Courthouse is being built near
the prison to eliminate the
escape risk involved with bring-
ing so many inmates to town.
Members of the public, who
- have complained to The Tri-

Fetlzr Fniie

Pet onro


bune over the years, hope the
new court will also bring an end
to the speeding prison buses
that shuttle prisoners between
the prison and downtown
courts.
After coming into office in
2002, Mrs Pratt promised the
Bahamian people a new court-
house and although it has taken
time, she said that once she
makes a promise, it will be ful-
filled.
"I said I would do it earlier,
but because I was unable to do
it so I want to apologise to the
Bahamian people but the bot-
tom line is I got it done."
"The idea is to build a court
near the prison so inmates will
only have to travel a short dis-
tance for their cases to be
tried," she said. "Anything can
happen when there is such a
large number of inmates going
to courts on Bay Street; there
are risks involved. It's an acci-
dent waiting to happen and we
don't want to put the public at
risk.
"You will still have them
coming from the prison down
there (Bay Street courts)," she


continued, "but it won't be in
sich large numbers, it will be
in numbers that you can con-
trol." I
The minister reported that
the work is being done as quick-
ly as possible. Inmates are doing
the majority of the work under
the supervision of officers and
other key persons.
Mrs Pratt explained that
inmates working on the court
will "come and go" as their sen-
tences end which may slow
down the process.
When asked when the build-
ing would be finished, Mrs Pratt
said she was not sure. "The bot-
tom line is, I made a commit-
ment to the Bahamian people
and I want to live by my com-
mitment.
"I said I vould do it and I
want the Bahamian people to
know that I did it."
The Tribune tried to contact
officials from the Ministry of
Works and the Attorney Gen-
eral's office to get a completion
date for the project afd find out
the size of the courthouse, but
calls were pot returned up to
press time.


Pratt opens Science camp


By Karan Minnis
Tribune Staff Reporter

THE first St Cecilia Science
and Technology Summer camp
was launched yesterday by
Deputy Prime Minister and
Minister of National Security
Cynthia Pratt.
Speaking at the official open-
ing of the camp, Mrs Pratt said:
"There are a lot of firsts hap-


opening in St Cecilia and this is
certainly one to be proud of."
The camp is designed to
expose children to scientific
methods, the use of the com-
puter and how to learn from the
Internet.
The computer aspect of the
camp has been actively in exis-
tence for five years, and is oper-
ated by four certified teachers,
13 helpers and one certified
chief.
According to Mrs Pratt, who
is MP for the area, it is the new
science and technology aspect
of the camp that has made her
particularly pleased.
"I am so grateful to the spon-
sors for each of the years we
have been able to have this
camp," she said. "It is simply
because of their love and appre-
ciation that this is possible."
Mrs Pratt also encouraged
the children to be good and
respectable citizens.
"You are the future of this


nation," she told them. "One
day you will all grow up to be as
big as I am, but you are the ones
that we will look up to and
you will have to be the ones to
make the laws of this country."
"Each one of you will choose
the direction in which you want
to go, but what is important is
that you will make a choice, a
positive choice. Today, I want
each of you to know that you
are responsible for this coun-
try, just like me, and I want you
to make positive choices, not
negative."
About 81 children are cur-
rently enrolled in the summer
programme. All are between
the ages of 4 to 14.
The camp is located on Bail-
lou Hill Road in the Sunshine
Plaza and is sponsored by
McDonalds, Purity Bakery,
Nassau Dairy Products,
Bahamas Food Services, and
Sunshine Insurance.

Students

urged to

attend

institutions
Recipients of the govern-
ment's new scholarship
scheme will be advised to
attend a local tertiary insti-
tution like BTVI or the Col-
lege of the Bahamas for a
year, according to Education
Minister Alfred Sears.
He said that this will only
be the case if their desired
field of study is being offered
at either institution.
"Our ministry has made a
commitment to evolve the
College of the Bahamas into
a university and would hope
that in our lifetime we will
have national institutions
where all of the programmes
needed for national devel-
opment will be offered," he
said.
Mr Sears said he believes
that the Bahamas has the
capacity to make college pro-
grammes better than they are
at international universities,
so that Bahamian students
will not have to go abroad
for study in the future.
He also explained that
since the ministry could not
assemble all the private sec-
tor partners in time for the
programme's launch, the
government decided to pro-
ceed with the financial back-
ing alone, because of the
tremendous demand for ter-
tiary education at the
moment.
"There are many anchor
projects that are about to be
implemented to address the
critical need for skilled
labour in every area of our
economy and especially in
education," he pointed out.
Mr Sears said he hopes the
ministry will have a signifi-
cant number of partners
onboard by the launch of the
second year of the pro-
gramme. Applications for the
scholarships can be picked
up from the Ministry of Edu-
cation's scholarship desk and
at ministry district offices in
the Family Islands.
Online applications can be
downloaded and printed at
SAn .bahamaseducat ion.com
under the scholarship sec-
tion.


19 new scholarships




for Bahamian students


*dB M


By REUBEN SHEARER
BAHAMIAN students will
be able to compete for 19 new
scholarships sponsored by the
Ministry of Education, Science
and Technology.
Education Minister Alfred
Sears announced that these
schemes will operate alongside
the ministry's Guaranteed Loan
Programme, under which stu-
dents are given funds for ter-


tiary education that they even-
tually have to pay back.
According to selection com-
mittee chairperson Dr Keva
Bethel, the new scholarships are
intended to complement and
supplement the loan guarantee
programme not replace it.
"Over the past years, we have
been obliged to set some very
careful financial criteria in place
to ensure that the loan pro-
gramme continues lending mon-


ey to people who can afford to
pay it back, because even
though it is a lending scheme
there are still academic require-
ments to be met," she said.
Dr Bethel anticipates that
those who may have contem-
plated applying for a loan would
also consider the scholarship
programme, and would realise
that their need for financial
assistance is going to be an
important factor in determin-


ing whether they receive a
scholarship. According to Dr
Bethel, the selection commit-
tee will select qualified Bahami-
an candidates and provide three
different categories of scholar-
ships based on merit, academics,
and technical training interest.
The National Merit Scholar-
ship, which awards funds for
impeccable academic creden-
tials, allocates $25,000 to each
recipient. This scholarship will
be awarded to four students:
two Nassuvians, one Grand
Bahamian, and another candi-
date from a Family Island.
The National Technical
Training Scholarship is awarded
to students who wish to attend a
trade school in the Bahamas or
abroad, and is awarded for peri-
ods of between six months and
three years. The value of this
award is $10,000 per year.
It will be awarded to four stu-
dents in Nassau, two in Grand


Bahama and two from Family
Islands.
The third category, "other
academic scholarships" will be
awarded to one Nassuvian, one
Grand Bahamian, and two
Family Island students.
Students awarded scholar-
ships for undergraduate and
graduate studies must maintain
a certain grade point average
each year to prolong the finan-
cial support.
Mr Sears said that because
his cabinet colleagues have
strictly instructed him to accel-
erate this process and expand
the programme to the full scope
of its capacity, they are launch-
ing the initiative "full force".
He said that two of the key
factors in determining recipi-
ents of the scholarships will be
that they must return to the
Bahamas after studying abroad,
and must have a strong need
for financial assistance.

The kidnapping of democracy


When you watch the violence unfolding in
the Middle East today it is easy to feel that
you've been to this movie before and that
you know how it ends badly. But we actu-
ally have not seen this movie before. Some-
thing new is unfolding, and we'd better under-
stand it.
What we are seeing in Iraq, the Palestinian
territories and Lebanon is an effort by Islamist
parties to use elections to pursue their long-
term aim of Islamizing the Arab-Muslim
world. This is not a conflict about Palestinian.
or Lebanese prisoners in Israel. This is a pow-
er struggle within Lebanon, Palestine and
Iraq over who will call the shots in their new-
ly elected "democratic" governments and
whether they will be real democracies.
The tiny militant wing of Hamas today is
pulling all the strings of Palestinian politics,
the Iranian-backed Hezbollah Shiite Islamic
party is doing the same in Lebanon, even
though it is a small minority in the cabinet,
and so, too, are the Iranian-backed Shiite
parties and militias in Iraq. They are not only
showing who is boss inside each new'democ-
racy, but they are also competing with one
another for regional influence.
As a result, the post-9/11 democracy exper-
iment in the Ara.b-Muslim. world is being
Kiiacked. Yes. basically Ifre arrd fair elections
were held in Lebanon, the Palestinian terri-
tories and Iraq. Yes, millions turned out to
vote because the people of the Arab-Muslim
world really do want to shape their own
futures.
But the roots of democracy are so shallow
in these places and the moderate majorities so
weak and intimidated that we are getting the
worst of all worlds. We are getting Islamist
parties who are elected to power, but who
insist on maintaining their own private militias
and refuse to assume all the responsibilities of
a sovereign government. They refuse to let
their governments have control over all
weapons. They refuse to be accountable to
international law (the Lebanese-Israeli border
was ratified by the U.N.), and they refuse to
submit to the principle that one party in the
Cabinet cannot drag a whole country into
war.
"Iraq, Lebanon and the Palestinians all
held democratic elections," said the Israeli
political theorist Yaron Ezrahi, "and the
Western expectation was that these elections
would produce legitimate governments that
had the power to control violence and would


assume the burden of responsibility of gov-
erning. But what happened in all three places
is that we produced governments which are
sovereign only on paper, but not over a terri-
tory."
Then why do parties like Hamas and
Hezbollah get elected? Often because they
effectively run against the corruption of the
old secular state-controlled parties, noted
Ezrahi. But once these Islamists are in office
they revert to serving their own factional
interests, not those of the broad community.
Boutros Harb, a Christian Lebanese par-
liamentarian, said: "We must decide who has
the right to make decisions on war and peace
in Lebanon. Is that right reserved for the
Lebanese people and its legal institutions, or
is the choice in the hands of a small minority
of Lebanese people?" Ditto in the fledgling
democracies of Palestine and Iraq. When cab-
inet ministers can maintain their own mili-
tias and act outside of state authority, said
Ezrahi, you're left with a "meaningless exer-
cise" in democracy/state building.
Why don't the silent majorities punish these
elected Islamist parties for working against the
real interests of their people? Because those
who speak against Iamas or Hezbollah are
either delegitimized as "American lackeys" or
ju~'murdered, like Rafiq Hariri, the former
Lebanese prime minister. '
The world needs to understand what is
going on here: The little flowers of democra-
cy that were planted in Lebanon, Iraq and
the Palestinian territories are being crushed by
the boots of Syrian-backed Islamist militias
who are desperate to keep real democracy
From taking hold in this region and Iranian-
backed Islamist militias desperate to keep
modernism from taking hold.
It may be the sceptics are right: Maybe
democracy, while it is the most powerful form
of legitimate government, simply can't be
implemented everywhere. It certainly is nev-
er going to work in the Arab-Muslim world if
the U.S. and Britain are alone in pushing it in
Iraq, if Europe dithers on the fence, if the
moderate Arabs cannot come together and
make a fist, and if Islamist parties are allowed
to sit in governments and be treated with
respect while maintaining private armies.
The whole democracy experiment in the
Arab-Muslim world is at stake here, and right
now it's going up in smoke.

Distressed by



'schizophrenia'



on foreigners


EDITOR, The Tribune.
I am distressed about the
comments heard on a radio
show I listened to on the morn-
ing of July 6, 2006. The show
was a live remote from the Nas-
sau International Airport, which
was about to be renamed in
honour of Sir Lynden Pindling.
A conversation ensued
between the host of the pro-
gramme and Philip Galanis,
about a media entity, whose
managing editor had conduct-
ed a survey that questioned
whether the airport should be
named for Sir Lynden. Appar-
ently, the respondents to the
survey overwhelmingly stated
that the renaming of the airport
was appropriate and they sup-
ported it. What concerns me, is
not the subject of the renam-
ing, because there are airports
worldwide whose naming or
renaming was hotly debated.
I am concerned that yet
again, the subject of whether
John Marquis, and by exten-
sion, any foreigner, is qualified
or disqualified to ask questions
or explore issues that concern
life in the Bahamas.
In my opinion, the real issue
isn't Mr. Marquis; he merely
presents xenophobes an oppor-
tunity to show how really shal-
low they are. These xenopho-
bic philistines do not want an
analysis of matters that do not
meet with their vetting and
approval, and instead wish to
shield the public from consid-
ered thought. Moreover, they
are predisposed, as this coun-


try's history has shown, to
"manage" what the press is
allowed to say.
Apparently, white foreign-
ers should not have opinions,
nor should they seek to provide
a platform for discussion of top-
ics that may offend the sensi-
bilities of some. Mr Marquis'
solicitation of Bahamians'
views, in his capacity as man-
aging editor of The Tribune
gives some occasion to cry foul!
Mr Galanis represents a gov-
ernment that brags about
removing "red tape" and
replacing it with "red carpet," in
its quest to encourage foreign
investment; interesting this
same government wishes to
keep Bahamians shackled with
an anti-foreign mindset. A
mindset they wish to turn on
and off, like one would an elec-
trical switch. Turn off to greet
foreigners (tourists) with friend-
ly smiles, and to treat them well
so they'll come back. Turn off
to roll out the red carpet (for
mostly white foreign investors),
and remain grateful for mostly
entry and middle level jobs.
However, turn on when it
comes to anything resembling
constructive criticism.
This schizophrenic switching
between xenophilia and xeno-
phobia, will not serve citizens
of the Bahamas well in an
increasingly global environ-


ment, where all of us must inter-
act with foreigners of every
racial group, according to glob-
al standards.
Our collective mindset must
change. Yes, it is not easy, and I
suspect it will become increas-
ingly more difficult especially
in an environment where this
government has given away, or
sold for little, vast tracks of
Crown land the people's land
- to mostly white foreigners.
When will those in political
leadership roles get over them-
selves and their duplicity and
allow the press to function as
they ought in this country?
When will they move beyond
the xenophobia that besets
them, and instead engage in
meaningful dialogue about real
issues that confronts an increas-
ingly frustrated middle class,
and a group of people who
appear increasingly disenfran-
chised and prone to anti-social
behaviour of all kinds.
It is the press' job to ask
questions and encourage debate
on topical issues. What is impor-
tant is the opportunity to get an
unfiltered view of what resi-
dents of the Bahamas really
think. This anti-foreign rhetoric
must stop, it is patronizing and
condescending. There are peo-
ple clever enough to see
through it, especially when it is
used to suit political ends.

Wilson shows alternative


to 'political vendettas'


EDITOR, The Tribune.
REGARDLESS of one's
views concerning the cere-
monies this morning at the air-
port, there was a very interest-
ing interview between the ZNS
host and Mr Franklyn Wilson
which bears repeating. Mr Wil-
son acknowledged that at one
time there was disagreement
between himself and his leader
whose name was replacing
"Nassau" at the International
Airport. I believe Mr Wilson
was omitted from the list of can-
didates at that time. However,
Mr Wilson said that he has long
since forgotten it even though
others felt differently. He fur-
ther stated his belief that some-
times leaders have a better
vision for the organisation than
do others not in the same posi-
tion (or something to that
effect).

My reaction was why does-
n't Mr Wilson teach that mes-
sage to the greater public.
Today, a lot of people cannot
understand the, vendetta being
waged by three gentlemen who
are still harbouring hatred
against their leader of another
political party because of similar
circumstances. No matter what
one's political background,
hatred against another, espe-


cially one's leader as is
being exhibited by these, gen-
tlemen is totally wrong and
moreover it is unchristian. I
trust those gentlemen will take
note of Mr Wilson's remarks.

Illegal immigrants




still impacting Bay


By KAHMILE REID
ALMOST five years after the
straw market burned to the
ground, the contract for its
rebuilding will go out to tender
in two weeks, Deputy Prime
Minister Cynthia Pratt told The
Tribune yesterday.
Mrs Pratt also revealed that
the project has a price tag of
$15 million.
"It goes out to tender on the
28th of this month and hope-
fully we can start construction
very soon after that," she said.
Under-secretary in the Min-
istry of National Security Peter
Deveaux-Isaacs said that the
construction is expected to take
about 16 months and that the
building will have three levels.
While some straw vendors
appear unruffled about how
long it has taken the govern-
ment to finalise the deal, oth-
ers think the new straw market
is "long overdue".
One vendor pointed out that


when government first came to
office, it had three major hurri-
canes to deal with and recover
from and therefore should be
given more time to deal with
the straw market reconstruc-
tion.
However, another vendor
pointed out that while they have
been willing to wait, five years is
a long time, and the temporary
make-shift market is far from
convenient.
She said the tent under which
the market is housed at the
moment is extremely uncom-
fortable both for vendors and
tourists.
"First, we were told that we
will be here for three months,
then it turned into six months. It
has been five years now," said
straw vendor Jerone Clarke.
While the date for the invi-
tation to tender has been con-
firmed by the ministry, vendors
are still sceptical as to how long
they will remain in the tempo-
rary location.

According to the site
(www.bahamas.gov): "The offi-

"Through the use of infor-

Minister of State for Finance,
James Smith, with other gov-
ernment officials, presented the
plan for the website on Thurs-
day in the Rumrunners Room



"This initia-
tive will incor-
porate the
entire
Bahamas."


at Radisson Cable Beach Hotel.
The three-phase approach
was adopted to minimize risks
and to ensure the "smooth tran-
sition" and implementation of
projects encompassed by the
initiative, the site explained.
TheTgovernment has enlisted
the help of the Canadian gov-
ernment which maintains an
impressive website to ensure
the initiative is completed as
efficiently as possible.
The long-term goal of the ini-
tiative is to "revitalise and trans-
form the public service into a
more efficient and effective ser-
vice provider."
Several information services
will be offered by the end of the
year, including a postal track-
ing service, a labour skills bank
and a partial list of Bahamas
laws.
According to website team-
member Rowena Bethel, com-
munity access points for those
who do not have Internet access
in their homes will be made
available in both New Provi-
dence and the Family Islands.
"This initiative will incorpo-
rate the entire Bahamas," she
said. "The Bahamas Govern-
ment Online is going to be the
base on which the Bahamas will
sit and no Bahamian will be left
behind."

By KAHMILE REID


ILLEGAL immigrants and
polluted and uncomfortable sur-
roundings are only a few of the
problems that straw vendors
face in their "temporary loca-
tion" on Bay Street, a disgrun-
tled vendor said yesterday.
Speaking to a number of
straw vendors in the market,
The Tribune heard numerous
complaints about illegal immi-
grants "taking over".
According to one vendor, ille-
gal immigrants disappear when
Immigration officers come to
do their regular checks, and,
returunhen theydeave.
The vendor also pointed out'
that there are more immigrants
(though not all illegal) than
Bahamians in the market now.
Deputy Prime Minister. Cyn-
thia Pratt, however, said she has
no knowledge of this claim.
"The people who I know are
in the market are not illegal,
they are here legally. Certainly
if it is known they are illegal
they will not be in the market".
"On my last visit there, I
made it clear that the straw
market is for Bahamians," Ms
Pratt said.
It was confirmed by Under-
secretary in the Ministry of
National Security Peter
Deveaux-Isaacs that.some ille-
gal immigrants are present in
the market.
He said it is a problem that
the ministry has been trying to
deal with, and that measures
are now in place to "rid the
market of illegal immigrants."
"We have engaged several
strategies to do that: we have
been tighteron the granting of
licenses, better proof of citizen-
ship is required, and we have
also had immigration official go
through the market from time


to time. They are successful
sometimes in finding illegal
immigrants."
Mr Deveaux-Isaacs indicat-
ed that the claims made by
some vendors do not hold
water, as some persons think
that anyone with an accent has
no right to be in the market.
"Some vendors, once they
hear an accent they automati-
cally believe that the person has
no right to be there, when that
is not always the case."
He said it is important that
vendors understand that the
ministry cannot discriminate on
thfei 1i ,ds of how someone
speaks. -.
SWhile Mr De eaux-lsaacs
agreed that illegal immigrafls
may be in the market, he main-
tains that the vendors them-
selves hire illegal immigrants as
their helpers.
"It is not as if illegal immi-
grants are taking over the mar-
ket, they are being brought in,
and illegal persons are easier to
hire, as young Bahamians are
not interested in working
there," he said.
The "hellish" heat in the tem-
porary market, despite the
installation of fans, was another
common complaint.
One vendor also spoke of a
leak directly above her stall,
which forces her to close when-
ever it rains.
Ms Pratt pointed out that the
present market is a plastic tent,
"and there is no way we can
repair the plastic."
"Much has been done at the
straw market and I can't do any
more than I have done and
certainly we are doing every-
thing we can to try and get the
new straw market in place," she
said.
However, Mr Deveaux-Isaacs
said many reported leaks at the


market have been addressed.
"We have consulted with the
Ministry of Works personnel in
attempting to rectify the leaking
problem," he said.
Mr Deveaux-Isaacs said the
ministry does not intend to
leave the problem unattended.
Straw vendors also told of a
pollution problem in the mar-
ket.
"Rats are running back and
fourth in this market, a dis-
gruntled vendor said, "this place
is invested."
According to the vendor, it


is an ongoing problem that has
been reported to the persons in-
charge of the market but-'.
nothing has been done.
The vendor asserted that nor-
mally, the Department of Envi-
ronmental Health visits the
market to conduct pest control
exercises however that has not
happened in almost a year.
The department could not be
reached up until press time for
comment.
The Tribune intends to fol-
low up on the health issues fac-
ing the straw vendors.

Can the Bahamas bridge




the 'economic divide'?


THE Bahamas is one of the
most economically divided
countries in the world, accord-
ing to last year's Living Condi-
tions Survey.
The study pointed out that
highly unequal societies may be
more likely to experience ele-
vated levels of crime and direct
economic consequences.
With this in mind, The Tri-
bune took to the streets on
Thursday to ask members of the
public for their thoughts the
growing divide between rich
and poor.


changes that have taken place in
the structure of Bahamian com-
munities over the years.
On the other hand, a small
percentage of those interviewed
felt the economic divide is
caused mainly by "laziness" and
"wrongly-directed pride" dis-
played by some members of
"Over-the-Hill" communities.
Rosetta Anderson-Rolle said:
"The rich are getting richer and
the poor are getting poorer. It
all happens because of greed
and selfishness. As the local
communities grew, we got more


E. Smith said: "I think its a David Lockheart said: "It all Carineka Gaitor said: "Lack

role." jobs and the choices made by are some of the contributing fac-
the government." tors."


- Most persons interviewed
said they feel there is no way
to bring balance or resolution
to the situation.
-One person said the divide is
simply "the price of progress"
and is inevitable because of


selfish this is just the price of
progress."
Mrs Rolle went on to say that
sometimes a "pride issue" con-
tributes to the problem. "Some
persons have a pride issue and
don't feel like they should


accept a helping hand or chari-
ty. But those of us who know
better should love our fellow
man, like God wants us to."
"I think it's a pride issue that
plays a big role," said E Smith.
"Some people would rather live
poor, than to work on a low-
level job." Mrs Smith went on
to say that she believes "lazi-


ness" is also a big factor in the
growing economic divide.
"Some may say that it may
be because of them having poor
parents and didn't get that head
start in life. But I think it's up to
them to build their own lives it
all comes down to pride and
laziness."
But David Lockhart said: "It


all stems from the availability
of jobs and the choices made
by the government. Everyone
knows what is going on,but no
one wants to deal with it.
"The minimum wage is also
too low the government needs
to hear the cries of the people
and do something." Mr Lock-
hart went on to suggest that


more Bahamians need to be
trained to fill executive posi-
tions. We do have rich and poor
areas," said Carineka Gaitor.
"Lack of education and teen
pregnancy are some of the con-
tributing factors."
"A large unemployment rate
in certain areas also is seen as
evidence of this," she said.

just like the prison, there are

"Officers know that there are

Special effects help bring





Dead Man's Chest to life


By JASON DONALD
WHAT'S SHOWING
PIRATES OF THE
CARIBBEAN: DEAD
MAN'S CHEST
Starring: Johnny Depp,
Orlando Bloom, Keira Knight-
ley
CAPTAIN Jack Sparrow
(pictured right) and Co return
in this incomprehensible yet
gloriously over-the-top sequel
to Curse of the Black Pearl.
It may suffer from a convo-
luted plot involving a key, a
chest, a long-lost father, a com-
pass and umpteen characters,
but this is still the best exam-
ple of lavish cinematic spectacle
so far this year.
After the broad characterisa-
tion in the first film, Depp and
Bloom are now growing com-
fortably into their roles as
drunken pirate and swashbuck-
ler respectively. Even Keira
Knightley's Elizabeth throws
some moral ambiguity into the
mix.
But the real stars here are the
bizarre peripheral characters
such as Davy Jones a hideous
octopus-faced pirate accompa-


nied by a zombie-like crew
assembled from various bits of
aquatic nastiness and a mysti-
cal swamp-dwelling woman who
does a nice line in magic.
These creations go way
beyond the standard pan-
tomime fare for this type of film
and help to guide the action
through its periodic lulls.
The one big-ish problem with
Dead Man's Chest is its exces-
sive running time.
A good half-hour could easi-
ly have been trimmed to save
us from too much of a good
'thing.
But don't let that put you off:
there's more fun, great set
pieces and stunning effects than
the rest of this year's event
movies put together.
THE DEVIL
WEARS PRADA
Starring: Meryl Streep, Anne

Although it's more of a nib-
bling satire of the fashion indus-
try than a biting one, this like-
able comedy is a pleasant
enough way to spend an hour or
two.

UN troops clash with Haiti's gangs


,By The Associated Press
PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti
(AP) U.N. troops in armored
vehicles traded gunfire with
heavily armed gangs Thursday
in clashes that injured three
peacekeepers, a U.N. official
said.
Witnesses said a woman buy-
ing food at a busy market was
killed in crossfire between
Brazilian troops and gangsters
*in Cite Soleil, a lawless slum on
S'the edge of Haiti's capital, Port-
au-Prince.
Lt. Cmdr. Neuzivaldo Dos
Anjos, a spokesman for the
Brazilian military, couldn't con-
firm the death but said two sol-
.-diers were hit by gunfire while
*on a reconnaissance, patrol,
-touching off a brief shootout.
The soldiers' wounds weren't'
"life-threatening.
"- Another soldier was slightly
injured by a ricocheting bullet in
i 'n earlier clash, Dos Anjos said.
'The daylight gunbattles
Underscored rising tension in

"nation, which has been gripped
' by a recent surge of kidnapping

g'lngs and corrupt police.

B But now it is $50."
'.' She could not explain why
'travel costs for adults remain
the same at $60 one way $10
Sless than a child's one-way fare.
Meanwhile, Wendy Rolle,
officece manager of Cat Island
Air, said ticket costs were
increased earlier this year, but
.'since that time prices have
remained the same.
S' "Every time fuel goes up we
definitely have to go up on
Prices as well. But right now

;' 'Rolle said.
- "We haven't made any

have any increases in our fuel
we would definitely have to go

S$5 or something like that to cov-
..er the cost of consumed fuel."
A round-trip ticket to Cat
Island is $160, to the Berry


tims' homes and shot them one-
by-one.
Meanwhile, president Rene
Preval appointed a former
police official to Haiti's top
national security post, as the
troubled Caribbean nation con-
fronts a new wave of violence
blamed on warring street gangs.
Preval announced Luc Euch-
er Joseph's appointment as
national security undersecretary
Wednesday night at a confer-
ence for Haitians living over-
seas. The job had been vacant
since a U.S.-backed interim gov-
ernment formally left office last
month.
Joseph, a Preval ally and for-
mer head of the police internal
affairs division, takes over as
the impoverished nation faces
a surge in kidnapping and
killings carried out by well-
armed street gangs based in the
dense, lawless slums of the cap-
ital.
The violence, after months of
relative calm, has raised fears
of a return to the bloodshed
seen following the February
2004 ouster of former President
Jean-Bertrand Aristide, Haiti's
first democratically elected
leader. However, Preval insisted
the recent troubles were crimi-
nal in nature and not politically
motivated.
BRITISH VIRGIN
ISLANDS: CHARLOTTE


AMALIE, U.S. Virgin Islands
(AP) A documentary com-
missioned by the British Virgin
Islands Conservation and Fish-
eries Department is critical of a
luxury resort and marina pro-
ject that the government calls
vital to the territory's tourism
economy.
In the documentary, biolo-
gists and conservation officials
say pollution and habitat
destruction by the proposed
Beef Island Golf & Country
Club Resort would damage
important marine breeding
grounds off an island famed for
pristine reefs and mangrove
forests.
"We are talking about areas
that for over 20 years have been
identified as areas that need to
be protected," said Bertrand
Lettsome, Chief Conservation
and Fisheries Officer for the
British territory, in the 30-
minute documentary obtained
by The Associated Press.
The resort, which will report-
edly cost more than US$80 mil-
lion (euro63 million) to develop,
has prompted strong opposi-
tion. It would transform what
is still a largely uninhabited spit
of land. Developers hope to
build 200 hotel rooms, rental
villas and the golf course on
more than 650 acres (260
hectares) by 2009.\
But opponents argue this is
far too much development for


s under pressure


Islands $130 and to Abaco $140.
Mrs Rolle explained that,
aside from maintenance, fuel is
a major expense. But her com-
pany has learned to absorb the
shock created by escalating fuel
prices.
Last month, analysts warned that
the Bahamas could face catastroph-
ic rises in fuel prices if the US fails
to solve its differences with Iran.
Local analysts, also cautioned that
a possible massive spike in world
oil prices could lead to gasoline
rocketing to $15 a gallon in Nas-
sau, sending up electricity costs and
causing a domino effect through the
entire Bahamian economy.
A recent Central Bank report
reveals that rising energy costs
are also driving up the cost of liv-
ing.
The economic report, "Monthly
Economic and Financial Develop-
ments May 2006", maintains that
due to higher energy costs, "average
consumer prices' in The Bahamas
rose by two per cent in the 12-month
period ending April, 2006."
The report said: "The rising cost
of oil and other commodities
remains a cause for concern."


The most significant increases
were seen in average costs for food:
and beverages (four per cent), other
goods and services (three per cent)
and housing (2.7 per cent), associ-
ated with the fuel surcharge on elec-
tricity consumption. BEC announced'
that the fuel surcharge was 10.3676
cents per kilowatt-hour, compared
to 9.2901 cents in May, the lowest
since October, 2005.
The 10.3676 cents in June com-
pared to 6.6486 cents in June, 2005,
and 4.6237 cents in February, 2005.
It means that consumers paid
higher electricity costs last month
and will have to pay out even more
when July's bill is made available.
Minister of Agriculture and
Marine Resources Leslie Miller, in
the House of Assembly in June, said
BEC's fuel cost for fiscal year
2005/2006 was $164,419,000 com-
pared to $82,519,000 for fiscal year
2002/2003.
The average cost to consumers
for fuel surcharge last year, Mr
Miller said, was $178.93 for low
income households, $894.63 for
middle income households and
$1,789.25 for upper middle income
households.

CUBA: HAVANA (AP) -
Washington envisions a demo-
cratic Cuba endorsing multi-
party elections and free mar-
kets after Fidel Castro is gone, a
new ally to be rebuilt with
American assistance after near-


ly five decades of communism.
The only problem is that
Cuba has for decades developed
its own plans for succession
within the existing communist
system not a transition to an
American-style democracy.
In Washington's scenario,
presented this week by a presi-
dential commission, Cubans


would quickly appeal to the
United States for food, water
and other aid after Castro dies.
U.S. technicians would rebuild
schools, highways, bridges.
Financial specialists would
design a tax system and encour-
age small businesses. The U.S.
would even help Cuba join the
International Monetary Fund.

MIAMI HERALD SPORTS


TRACK AND FIELD
By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter
WHILE sprinter Debbie
Ferguson-McKenzie contin-
ues to struggle on the Golden
League in Europe, quarter-
miler Christine Amertil
picked up a big victory on Fri-
day.
Competing at the Golden
Gala in Rome Italy, Amertil
was placed in the women's
400 B race where she posted
her season's best time of 50.62
seconds to win.
Her nearest rival was
Hazel-Ann Regis from
'Grenada, who also turned in a
season's best of 50.77. Amer-
ican Moushaumi Robinson
produced her season's best of
50.80 for third.,
American Sanya Richards
stayed unbeaten on the Gold-
en League to remain in con-
tention for her share of the
S$1 million jackpot with a 49.31
clocking in the women's A
race Jamaican Novlene
Williams was second in a per-
S' sonal best of 49.65.
Once again, Bahamian
Olympic and World champion
Tonique Williams-Darling
didn't compete in the race.


She is reportedly still nursing
a slight injury.
The Bahamas, however,
had two competitors entered
in the women's 100.
Ferguson-McKenzie, whose
bid for her share of the jack-
pot was snapped by the return
of American Marion Jones in
the last Golden League meet
on in Paris, France on July 8,
had to settle for fifth in a time
of 11.16.
Despite the fifth place, Fer-
guson-McKenzie improved on
the 11.23 she clocked in Lau-
sanne on Tuesday for fifth.
Jamaican Sheron Simpson
clocked an impressive 10.87
to win the race, turning the
tables on Jones, who beat her
in their last meeting. Jones
ran a season's best of 10.91
for second.
Coming in third was Amer-
ican Me'Lisa Barber in 11.08.
Another American Torri
Edwards was fourth in 11.09.
The race also featured Amer-
ican Latasha Jenkins in sixth
in 11.1S ind Cayman Island's
C done Nlothersill in seventh
in 11.25.
Chandra Sturrup, the oth-
er Bahamian entered in the
event, had to run out of the B
race in her return after a slight


injury. She was third in 11.58.
Americans Stephanie Durst
and Muna Lee came through
in first and second respec-
tively in 11.20 and 11.35.
Once again, Bahamian
quarter-miler Chris 'Bay'
Brown didn't participate in
the meet.
The men's 400 featured two
races.
American Jeremy Wariner
won the A race in a meet and
world leading time of 43.62 as
he also kept pace of a share of
the $1 million jackpot.
It was an American sweep
as Xavier Carter got second in
44.76; Lashaw Merritt was
third in 44.77 and Andrew
Rock was fourth in 44.82.
And in the B race, Gary
Kikaya won in a season's best
of 44.66. Jamaican Michael
Blackwood took second in a
season's best of 44.94 and
Marc:Raquil of France was
third in a season's best of
45.01.

SOFTBALL
S.By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter

THE PROPER Care Pool Lady
Sharks got a much needed victory over
the Bommer George Swingers to move
into second place in the New Providence
. Softball Association's ladies standings.
Winning pitcher Alex Taylor helped
her own cause when she opened the top
of the seventh with a single and scored on
catcher Debbie McClure's run-producing
double to lift the Lady Sharks to a 5-4
victory.
Thursday night's win at the Churchill
Tener Knowles National Softball Stadi-
um enabled Proper Pool Care to
improved to 7-5 in second place, drop-
ping Bommer George a half game behind
in third place at 6-5.
Meanwhile, the Electro Telecom Wild-
cats climbed 31/2 games ahead of the
Lady Sharks on top of the standings at
10-1 as they knocked off the DHL Brack-
ettes 11-4.
Lady Sharks' manager Stephen 'Bish-
op' Beneby said it only showed that his
Proper Care Pool team is starting to play
up to their potential.
"We're coming around. There's some
major improvements," he insisted. "My
big hitters in the middle are coming
through. But if I can get my lead off bat-
ter to come to the game on time, we will
be much better."
However, Beneby said if they can cut
down on their mistakes, they can be a
force to reckon with in the league. He

NBA


champions


pay visit to


* By RENALDO DORSETT
Sports Reporter
A GROUP of youngsters at
the Princess Margaret Hospital
received timely inspiration
from representatives from
NBA Champions the Miami
Heat.
As a part of its "Shoot for
the Stars" program, Heat for-
ward Jason Kapono and other
members of the organisation
visited the Children's Ward of
PMH, greeting patients with
words of encouragement, auto-
graphed photos and other
Heat promotional items.
The visit was the first of two
events the "Shoot for the
Stars" programme will host
during its time period in the
Bahamas.
Today, the visit will culmi-
nate with a basketball clinic at
the Kendal Isaacs Gymnasium
at 10am for approximately 100
pre-selected campers.
A reading event will follow
the clinic.
Kapono, the former UCLA
standout, just completed his
third NBA season and first
with the Heat.
He said it was an eye-open-
ing experience to visit the chil-
dren and the hospital and to
be able to interact with the
patients.
"It's a great thing to be able
to give spirit, give life, and
hope to these kids," he said.
"It means a lot to get such a
warm reception and great
feedback from them. Just to
give them something they can
enjoy, even in their condition,
means a lot."
At each stop on the "Shoot
for the Stars" tour, the contin-
gent visits a local hospital and,
interacts with young patients.
According to a Press
Release issued by the Heat,
the visits are intended to "raise
the spirits of the children and
their families during their time
of need."


This is the second consecu-
tive year the "Shoot for the
Stars" program has visited the
Bahamas.
Last year former Heat for-
ward Rasual Butler was the
spokesman and conducted the
reading and basketball clinics.
The "Shoot for the Stars"
summer 2006 Books and Bas-
ketball Clinics is a joint initia-
tive by the Miami Heat and
the FedEx Corporation to
advise on basic basketball skills
while at the same time stress-
ing the fundamentals of read-
ing and success in the class-
room.
Along with Kapono, Heat
Community Affairs Liaison
Wali Jones will host a series of
basketball camps and reading
clinics, which include the
NBA's popular "NBA Cares"
and "Read to Achieve" pro-
grams.
The Bahamas is the second
stop on the "Shoot for the
Stars" tour.
The first clinic was held in
Santo Domingo, the Domini-

The bidding:

1 1 2* 24
4* 44 5+ -5*
6 Dble
Opening lead king of diamonds.
Many squeezes come ready-made,
but in some deals declarer must do
some advance preparation to create
the required position.
Here is a typical case. West leads
the king of diamonds and shifts to the
king of spades, taken by South with
the ace. At first glance, it seems
declarer must sooner or later lose a
heart trick and go down one. But
actually, given the bidding, he is a


strong favorite to make the slam.
West almost surely has five
spades for his overcall, and all
declarer needs in addition is for West
to have the king of hearts. ifnthat
case, with proper 'play a squeeze is
certain to develop against him later
on.
Accordingly, at trick three
declarer leads a trump to dummy's
eight, ruffs a spade, then plays a
trump to the nine and ruffs another
spade. The purpose of the spade ruffs
is to exhaust East of spades and so
place the burden of guarding against
dummy's nine solely on West.
Declarer then plays four more
rounds of trumps to bring about this
position:

South now leads his last trump,
and West is helpless. If he discards a
spade, declarer discards a heart from
dummy; if West discards a heart,
declarer discards a spade from
dummy. Either way, South scores the
last two tricks and makes the slam.

ARIES Mar 21/Apr 20
This is a good time for repairing
bridges, Aries, especially personal
ones. The more you worry about a sit-
uation, the worse it will seem. It's time
to get positive:
TAURUS Apr 21/May 21
You cannot be all things to all people,
Taurus. The sooner you realize that
you, too, have limitations, the happier
you will be. Set aside time for your-
self in the next few days.
GEMINI May 22/Jun 21
Now is the ideal time for caution,
Gemini. It is better to be safe than
sorry when it comes to what you say
and do. If you try to outsmart some-
one, it will come back to haunt you.
CANCER Jun 22/Jul 22
You're smart, but a cocky attitude
will not win fans, Cancer. You don't
have much experience with financial
matters, so let the experts handle this
area of your life.
LEO Jul 23/Aug 23
So many ideas, so little time.,Is it
any wonder that you've been feeling
frustrated lately? Be patient just a lit-
tie while longer, and things are sure .
to wXk out for the best.
VIRGO Aug 24/Sept 22
No matter how much you may be
tempted, Virgo,' avoid getting
involved with the rumor mill. It can
get you into trouble faster than the
blink of an eye.
LIBRA Sept 23/Oct 23
Although you may have your suspi-
cions about a coworker's poor work
ethic, it's wise to keep your feelings
to yourself, Libra.-The right people
will find out.in time.
SCORPIO Oct 24/Nov 22
Quit worrying, Scorpio, After all,
negative thoughts often lead to neg-
ative results. Put your fears behind
you, and get on with 'the week.
Others will appreciate your effort.
SAGITTARIUS -Nov 23/Dec 21
Your natural instinct toward caution
is in conflict with a desire to take a
big risk. If it is a financial risk, you
may want to listen to the reasonable
half of your brain. Trouble brews.
CAPRICORN Dec 22/Jan 20
'You don't know what you want
lately, Capricorn. Don't let a tem-
porary dry spell in your cash flow
limit your ability to live. Now is the
time to be adventurous.
AQUARIUS Jan 21/Feb 18
It's time to pitch in more, Aquarius,
although you already do so much. A
relative needs your help desperately,
so hop to it, and fast. You'll enjoy
the rewarding feeling afterward.
PISCES Feb 19/Mar 20
If you're feeling like a failure, it's
probably all in your head, Pisces.
Those aroundou know how
capable you are. Cheer up. *.

Evgeny Vladimirov v Andrei
Kharitonov, USSR Young Masters
1977. Both players were
contemporaries of Garry
Kasparov, and years later the
all-time number one was
looidng for aides in his world
title campaign against Anatoly
Karpov. He remembered
Vladimirov's studious approach
and enlisted him as a trainer
cum researcher, but the job
ended in tears. Viadimirov was
publicly shamed and dismissed
when Kasparov declared that
his coach had been selling
opEning secrets to the Karpov
camp. Vladimirov denied
everything and still does, but
the damage was done. Though
he has since been Asian
champion and trainer to the
Indian national team, t's the


Kasparov episode which people
remember. How did Vladmirov
win as White (to move)?
