THE TRIBUNE


Why you


vex?


* By PAUL TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter

"I vex 'cause it too hot, and I
have no air-condition in my car.
My mechanic told me that it
would cost more than my poor
car is valued to get a new AC sys-
tem. Thank goodness elections
coming soon. Maybe I could get a
AC instead of a ham or turkey
this time."

Judy, the Grove.

"I vex with my boss. I wanted
to go to Miami this weekend and
do some shopping. We don't
have much to do on Friday's
anyway. The store is almost
closed by noon anyway, but no, I


have to stay until 5pm. Now I
gatta wait till next week when
he's off for me to call in sick and
catch another weekend. But by
that time the specials will be
gone!"

Kelise.

"I vex because I had to escort
this boring guy to a boring gen-
tleman's event. He was so lame.
I was so upset that I had to
spend my own money (hundreds
of dollars) for a dress and make
up. etc, to come to find out my
date would be less interesting
than a doorknob. He wasn't
even cute. I know it was a
favour to go out with him, but
that was just beyond boring. All


I can say is never again. Never
again."

G. Abbie.

"I vex that I went to a certain
restaurant and ordered a meal
with dirty, nasty, rotten shrimp in
it.-When I brought it to the man-
agers attention he wanted to have
attitude! Now I see why my
cousins dem don't eat from any
and everybody."

Linda.

"I vex that I can't find a good
Bahamian man. I vex that these
men don't know when to make
'a move'. They too slow! And
they expect nowadays for the


woman to make the first move."

JJT

"I vex with co-workers who is
try to be coming on to you all
the time. This one in particular
comes over to my desk all the
time, cutting up, rubbing herself
all over me. I'm tempted to talk
to management, but that might
only give her incentive to go fur-
ther. I'm not one to fool around
wit just any and everyone,. but
she needs to calm down. I don't
want her to be throwing rock at
my window, so I can't mess wit
her.""

Upset, and tired of this girl's
advances.

Murder accused was an excellent

* By NATARIO McKENZIE

THE FORMER employer of

Freeport, told the court that in
August 2002, Farrington
. became his employee.
Mr Roberts testified that he
had been so impressed by Far-
rington during his interview that
he gave him the highest assess-
ment "very good".
He noted that because there
was such a big turnover of staff
at the establishment, manage-
ment tried to ensure they select-
ed the right individual the first
time.

Mr Roberts testified that Far-
rington had been hired as a
clerk and began working in the
plumbing department.
However, at the time of his
termination, the defendant had
been working in the paint
department as a clerk and paint
mixer, he said.
When questioned by prose-
cutors regarding Farrington's
work performance, Mr Roberts
told the court that Farrington
was doing an "excellent job"
and that he had never received
any complaints from staff about
Farrington.
During cross-examination by
Romona Farquharson, Mr
Roberts told the court that Far-
rington was terminated in April
2003 because he was missing
work on a regular basis.
Mr Roberts told the court
that Farrington would often not
return after taking his lunch
break, and that he was warned
about his behaviour.
He testified., that Farrington
was fired on April 30, 2003 and
noted that he had actually been

then asked for his job back.
The jury asked when Far-
rington started missing work.
Mr Roberts said that although
he was not certain, it probably
began after Farripgton's first
month of employment.
Edward Robins, father of
Jamaal Robins, also testified
yesterday.
He said his son was unmar-
ried and had one daughter.
Mr Robins told the court that
in July, 2002, Jamaal was living
with him, his wife and their two
daughters at Custard Apple
Street in Freeport.

Accident

He said that in July 2002, his
wife was involved in a serious
car accident and had to be air-
lifted to New Providence for
treatment.
Mr Robins told the court that
on July 15 or 16, Jamaal.walked
out of the house and never
returned.
The witness admitted that his
son often left home for a few
days, and sometimes for a week.
He said that after a week, he
became very concerned and
questioned Jamaal's friends.
As a result of their informa-
tion, he said, he searched in
areas that Jamaal frequented,
but found nothing.
He said that in October 2003,
he received information from
police, and as a result, went to
Rand Memorial Hospital and
gave blood.
During cross-examination,
Mr Robins admitted that he did
not report his son missing until


10 months after he disappeared.
Mr Robins denied that he
knew Cordell Farrington. He
said he gave a police statement
in May 2003, about his son's dis-
appearance.
However, he denied that he
told police about Patrick Storr,
a police officer who he had
asked to assist in the search.
Woman Detective Sergeant
1743 Ester Miller, a crime
scene officer and photographer
attached to the Central Detec-
tive Unit in New Providence,
told the court that on October
28, 2003 she received informa-
tion from Freeport police, and
as a result, travelled to Grand
Bahama with a team of offi-
cers.
, She told the court that on
October 30, after speaking with
Sergeant Merinard, she went to
an apartment in Marbury Lane.
There, she said that she pho-
tographed the southern bed-
room of apartment three and
used luminol to check for blood
and body fluids.
Pictures she took of the
alleged crime scene were sub-
mitted into evidence and shown
to the jury yesterday.
Dr Syed Hussani, an emer-
gency room physician, and Con-
stable Reno McPhee were also
called to the stand.
The two said they were pre-
sent when Edward Robins and
Patricia Scott came to Rand
Memorial Hospital on October
27, 2003 to give blood.
Dr Hussani testified that two
tubes of blood were taken from
each individual and Constable
McPhee said he took pictures
of the tubes of blood.

Woman in

serious

condition

after attack


Resident's concern over




trash in historic street


A WOMAN is in serious con-
dition with multiple injuries
after being attacked with a base-
ball bat yesterday morning,
police say.
Rosemell Capron was report-
edly in the area of the Texaco
Service Station on Prince
Charles Drive on her way to
work at around 9.15 yesterday
morning when she was
approached by a person carry-
ing a baseball bat.
According to Assistant Com-
missioner Reginald Ferguson,
the person was someone she
recognized.
Ms Capron suffered multiple
injuries to the left side of her
head and is now at Princess
Margaret Hospital.

Prosecutor

convicted

of forging

documents

* ST MAARTEN
Philipsburg
A JUDGE has convicted a
former Dutch prosecutor of
forging documents that prose-
cutors said were used to tap his
girlfriend's phone in St
Maarten, according to Associ-
ated Press.
Cor Merx, the Dutch
Caribbean island's former chief
prosecutor, received a one-year
suspended sentence plus pro-
bation from Judge Rick Smid
on Wednesday. Merx's attor-
ney, Jairo Bloem, had entered a
guilty plea for him.
Prosecutors said they began
investigating Merx, who trans-
ferred from the Hague to St.
Maarten in 2001, when they dis-
covered in April 2005 docu-
ments that he had forged. They
accused him of using the docu-
ments to ft0 hts girlfriend's
phone out of jealousy.:
"You should have been the
trust itself, but you have abused
the power you had for personal
reasons," said Prosecutor Gert
Rip. .t.
Merx'said the case was polit-
ically motivated, noting that the
charge was brought after he did-
n't make arrests in a construc-
tion fraud investigation. He said
thit there wasn't enough evi-
de,,ce to make those arrests.
Merx, known as an outspo-
ken prosecutor, left St. Maarten
after finishing his term in April
2005. He was arrested in August
2005 after he returned to the
island to work for a law firm.


Britain to

evacuate

Jamaicans

in Lebanon

E JAMAICA
Kingston

FOUR Jamaicans stranded
in Lebanon will be evacuated
Thursday from the. war-torn
country with the help of.British
troops, an official said.
Foreign Affairs Minister
Anthony Hylton told Radio
Jamaica that the time of their
evacuation "depends on the
movement of British citizens."
He did not say where the
Jamaicans, who include a 5-
year-old boy, will be taken or
when they will return to the
Caribbean nation.
British officials also have said
they will evacuate Trinidadians
trying to escape Lebanon,
where fighting between Israeli
troops and Hezbollah guerril-
las entered its second week. At
least three Trinidadians have
requested assistance and 20
could be trying to leave, said
Ashton Ford, a spokesman for
the Trinidad High Commission
in London.
Since the Israeli campaign in
Lebanon began on July 12, an
estimated 13,000 foreign nation-
als have been evacuated from
the country.
Trinidad and Jamaica are for-
mer British colonies.

By KRYSTEL ROLLE

A TINY alcove off
Carmichael Road has become
choked with trash and is
becoming an environmental
health problem, according to a
concerned neighbour.
Abbie's Close, a street
named after Genevieve Sher-
man Ware better known in
the entertainment world as
"Abbie Lafleur" has become
an "embarrassment", she told
The Tribune.
Ms Lafleur, 77, has lived in
this neighbourhood for 45
years. In fact, she claims to be
the first resident.
Ms Lafleur said that for the
first time in her life, she is
"disgusted and fed-up" with
the condition of the neigh-
bourhood she helped devel-
op.
For weeks, nine trucks -
several of which are filled with
trash and garbage have lit-
tered a lot near her home, Ms
Lafleur said.
"I wasn't even here when
the garbage was being piled
up, I was in Florida for five
weeks and one of my neigh-


IN the wake of massive
delays following Wednesday's
grounding of Bahamasair's
entire fleet, the airline was
again hours behind schedule
when a malfunctioning tyre
prevented a flight's take-off,
it was claimed yesterday.
According to passengers
onboard Thursday evening's
Fort Lauderdale/Nassau flight,
the plane had already taxied
onto the runway at Fort Laud-
erdale Hollywood-I'Ttft -
tional Airport when the air-
craft's front tyre suddenly
burst.
The plane was forced to
turn back to its departure gate
and the passengers were asked
to disembark and return to the
airport.
Passengers told The Tribune
that they had already been
delayed for several hours
before boarding their flight,
and because of the burst, tyre
had to wait until the next
morning to get a flight back
to Nassau.
A source close to the air-
line claimed that before the
flight's departure, a call had
gone out to locate an engineer
as there seemed to be a prob-
lem with the aircraft's front
tyre.


bours called me to tell me
about it."
Ms Lafleur returned to Nas-
sau days after hearing the
news. After seeing the mess,
she was devastated. "When I
got home I screamed," she
said.
It has been three days since
she got home, and since then,
Ms Lafleur has been trying to
bring attention to her dilem-
ma.
"This is a residential area
and this should not be
allowed. I was here for a long
time I made through here
what it is," she said.
Another problem she has
found since returning home is
that a trench has been dug at
the side of her property -
which has loosened her chain-
link fence.
"Someone needs to do
something about this," she
said.
The owner of the property
could not be located yester-
day.
The Tribune was also
unable to contact director of
Environmental Health Ron
Pinder for comment.


When the person in ques-
tion could not be located, it
was alleged that a decision was
made' for the aircraft to
depart.
However, the staff at
Bahamasair's Fort Lauderdale
office denied the incident, say-
ing that none of their flights
had experienced any techn'i-
cal difficulties.
Calls to Bahamasair's man-
aging director Henry Woods
remained unanswered up until
press time last night.
Several delays had been,
caused earlier this week
because Bahamasair volun-
tarily grounded its entire fleet
in response to a request by the
Federal Aviation Administra-
tion (FAA) to review the air-
line's maintenance records for
the last 12 months.
Mr Woods explained to The
Tribune on Thursday that
Bahamasair decided to ground
all the fleet at once so that the
review could be conducted as
quickly as possible. Instead of
stretching the process out over
a week, the review was con-
ducted within a 10-hour peri-
od, he said.
Mr Woods said that the
FAA had given Bahamasair a
"positive review" and that all

Time to cease fire in Middle East


THE TIME to cease fire in war is the ulti-
mate sire of unintended consequences. And
there is no reason to believe that what has
been true of past wars will not be true of the
current Mideast war a conflict in which
Iranian and Syrian missiles fired by the
Lebanese Shi'ite militia Hezbollah are landing
in Israeli towns while Israel's air force drops
bombs not only on Hezbollah positions and
weapons but on Lebanon's infrastructure and
on the civilian population.
The sooner the bombs and rockets are
stopped, the better for all concerned. There
are now 500,000 displaced people in Lebanon.
There are villages in the south, Christian as
well as Shi'ite Muslim, where the populace is
cowering in terror, not knowing how they will
get milk for their infants and medications for
the old and infirm. If Israel's political leaders
believe they have anything to gain from con-
tinuing the army's campaign in Lebanon to
re-establish Israel's degraded deterrence, they
have lost track of the need to match the use of.
military force to the achievement of political
aims.
Israel's retaliation against Hezbollah for its
July 12 cross-border raid may enable Israel
to deter other such violations of an interna-
tionally recognized border for some time to
come. The Israeli air war could also lead to an
eventual agreement to keep Hezbollah's mili-
tia posts and rocket launchers several miles
away from the border. But if so, the devasta-
tion already visited.upon Lebanon should be.
more than enough to achieve what is achiev-
able in the restoration of lost deterrence.
Israel cannot hope to expunge Hezbollah by,
continued bombing of Lebanon's cities and
villages, its power plants, roads, bridges, and
airports. Although many Lebanese resent
Hezbollah for usurping the powers of making
war and peace that only the country's elected
government should exercise, and even though
Lebanon's Sunni, Druze, and Christian com-
munities may abhor Hezbollah's role as a cats-
paw for the regimes in Tehran and Damascus,
Hezbollah's roots as a political and religious
movement are implanted too deep in Lebanon
to be torn up by Israeli bombs.
There are two primary reasons why Hezbol-
lah has gained acceptance, if not respect, out-
side Lebanon's Shi'ite community (about 40
per cent of the population). The first is its
reputation for providing social services free of
the corruption that taints other Lebanese fac-
tions. The second is its posture as resistance'
fighter against Israel during the Israeli occu-
pation of Lebanon from 1982 to 2000.
Rather than turning that population against
Hezbollah, prolongation of the air war threat-


ens to unite all of Lebanon's disparate com-
munities in a shared indignation against the
country that is killing so many civilians and
smashing so much of the infrastructure built
since the end of Lebanon's civil war. Although
most of those communities might want
Hezbollah to disarm in conformity with UN
Security Council Resolution 1559, Lebanon's
frail government which includes two Cab-
inet ministers from Hezbollah is incapable
of forcing the Shi'ite militia to disarm. That
government, elected last year after a peaceful
uprising against Syria's domination of
Lebanon, cannot risk provoking another
Lebanese civil war by ordering its soldiers or
police to take on Hezbollah's fighters.
Israel is certainly not the only party sub-
jected to the law of unintended consequences.
The Hezbollah leader, Hassan Nasrallah, as
well as his Iranian and Syrian backers badly
miscalculated in launching the July 12 raid
into Israel. Hezbollah may survive, but it will
now come under tremendous pressure to
remove its forces several miles from the inter-
nationally recognized border with Israel. There
has also been a setback for Syrian ruler Bashar
Assad, who shortly before the raid had Nas-
rallah inform Lebanon's prime minister that
Hezbollah would keep peace along the border
with Israel only if Assad and his inner circle
were assured they would not be arraigned at a
UN tribunal for the murder of former
Lebanese prime minister Rafik Hariri.
Now Assad could face the-wrath of other
Arab regimes, who view him not merely as a
serial bungler, but as an increasingly danger-
ous ally of Iran. His minority Alawite regime
is at risk of being subverted by domestic oppo-
nents from Syria's Sunni majority backed by
other Arab states. And Iran stands to be the
biggest loser of all, having played its Hezbol-
lah card in the wrong place, at the wrong time.
Iran's threat of unleashing Hezbollah was
meant to deter the United States and its allies
from applying too much pressure on Tehran
over its nuclear programme. That card was
also supposed to be one of the deterrents
against a US attack on Iranian nuclear sites.
If Hezbollah is now kept a safe distance
from the Israeli border by an international
stabilization force, it will become a broken
arrow in Tehran's quiver. But for that to hap-
pen, Israel's leaders must have the wisdom to
cease firing now, of their own accord, before
their bombing of civilians in Lebanon drives
potential partners and neutrals into the arms
of Israel's implacable enemies.

EDITOR, The Tribune
I AM very disheartened
about recent "stone throw-
ing" in regards to the press
who I feel do a fine job in
reporting the news. People,
especially those governing
should remember that there
is freedom of speech in this
country and they should allow
the press to do their jobs in
peace.
I come from a country where
there is no freedom of speech
so I am most appreciative to
be here, for the past 25 years,
where there is such a thing.
And, it bothers me to see that
others are so diligently trying
to slyly take it away.
Something concerned me
greatly the other day I must
say. I turned on my television
to watch the renaming of the
airport to see a newspaper
publisher actually taking active
part. This was blatantly made

into a political event. As far
as I know, those involved in
the press should personally
remain out of anything
remotely involving politics or
anything that can have them
looking like they lean towards
a particular group or organi-
sation anything controver-
sial.
When it comes to the pub-
lisher of a newspaper this goes
without saying. He/she should
be almost invisible to the pub-
lic except for minor public
relations ventures. In my opin-
ion this publisher has a lot of
work to do at his newspaper
in terms of correcting its qual-
ity. Therefore he should con-
centrate more on that rather
than being seen to support a


drug traffickers of South Amer-
ica and their US buddies. It was
unnerving to hear this.
Imagine my disquiet when
the then USN Liaison Officer
to the Bahamas, Comm. Hel-
muth Schlichting USN and his
DEA cohort, R C Gamble, told
me over lunch at the Pier I
r'Ttirlfnt, 'Freeport Harbour,
on 23/6/83, who was involved in
the drugs business. Subsequent
books, newspaper articles and
particularly the Commission of
Enquiry Report of December


as to how price increases are
taking place a lot of items
have gone up 79-89 cents in a
matter of weeks.
Of course the same old prac-
tice of changing prices on items
already on the shelf goes on
without any slowing down.
If this is the new management
of City Meat I can well imagine
why Winn Dixie is so happy
they sold their interests and are
skipping town with the $54 mil-


EDITOR, The Tribune


IN reference to the article in
The Tribune dated Monday,
June 19, 2006, "Should the air-
port really bear Sir Lynden's
Name?" My response is why
shouldn't it?
The article was indeed a great
read and I admire you for it.
But when I think about the
whole situation I can only say
that despite whatever negative
images pops to the minds of so
many fellow Bahamians, there
are positive ones that always
pop into the minds of so many
fellow Bahamians.
No, he may have not been a
Saint, or far from it. But one
can't deny what good he has
done for the country and I need
not go into listing them.
.1 ask my self this question, if
we can name a highway after a
track and field athlete why can't
the airport bear the late prime
minister's name? Maybe I've
been under a rock or deaf but
what contributions has she
made that can compare to the


particular political party.
It is well understood that he
was heavily affiliated with that
party in his past, however, he
has taken on a new occupation
now as publisher, therefore he
should show his office a little
respect and live up to the name
- "non-biased press."
This is in no way an attack
on the good gentleman, just
mild chastisement for stepping
over the line. Tsk! Tsk!
I have never even seen the
publisher of The Tribune and
only know how the publisher
of the Bahama Journal looks
because he was a former tele-
vision broadcaster.
This good gentleman needs
to sit and review what he has
done and make it a point' to
never do such a thing again.
Shame on you!

Japan to
apologise to
migrants to
Dominican
Republic

TOKYO
THE Japanese government
is set to apologise Friday to
some 1,300 Japanese who emi-
grated to the Dominican
Republic decades ago, media
reports said, sparking some to
sue Tokyo claiming they were
lured by false promises of fertile
land in a "Caribbean paradise",
according to Associated Press
Prime Minister Junichiro
Koizumi is expected to meet
with his Cabinet Friday morn-
ing to finalise and issue a formal
apology to the emigrants, the
Asahi newspaper and Kyodo
News agency reported.
The apology comes weeks
after the government reported-
ly reached an out-of-court set-
tlement with about 170 plain-
tiffs who had sued the govern-
ment over the 1950s emigration
campaign.
The emigrants moved to the
Dominican Republic in 1956-59
after Tokyo desperate to find
space and jobs for returning sol-
diers and others after Japan's
World War II defeat pro-
moted emigration to the
Caribbean nation with promises
of fertile land, according to a
* support group for the plaintiffs.
The plaintiffs said much of
the land they got was unsuit-
able for farming, and that their
rights to its ownership were
inadequate.
Under.the government's pro-
posed settlement, it would pay 2
million yen (US$17,100) to each
plaintiff who still lives in the
Dominican Republic, and 1.3
million (US$11,115) to each
who has returned to Japan,
Kyodo said.

Migrants in

smuggling

attempt ,to

stay in US

MIAMI

TWENTY-EIGHT Cuban
migrants, who earlier this
month crowded onto a boat in a
failed attempt to reach Florida,
are being permitted to stay in
the United States to help pros-
ecutoir in their case against
three men accused of organizing
the deadly smuggling trip, offi-
cials said Thursday, according
to Associated Press.
The migrants were brought
to land under material witness
warrants in the smuggling case,
U.S. Attorney R. Alexander
Acosta said.
: The 28 migrants were
brought to Key West after being
held on a Coast Guard cutter
at sea since the July 8 chase.
They were transferred to Cus-
toms and Border Protection
officials, Petty Officer Jennifer
Johnson said. She declined fur-
ther comment.
The migrants were aboard a
speedboat when it was inter-
cepted by the Coast Guard
south of Boca Chica in the
Florida Keys. One passenger
died after hitting her head when
the boat ignored orders to stop
and attempted to ram a Coast
Guard vessel, authorities said.
The Coast Guard fired two
shots into the vessel's engine to
disable it.
Bringing the migrants to the
United States means they can
stay in the country. Under the
U.S. "wet foot/dry foot" poli-
cy, most Cubans who reach U.S.
soil are permitted to remain
while those interdicted at sea
are returned home.

Open season on crawfish to




be reduced to swell stocks


* By REUBEN SHEARER
MINISTER of Agriculture
and Fisheries Leslie Miller is
putting fishermen on notice
that the 2007 open season on
crawfish will be reduced from
eight to six months.
Mr Miller explained that this
decision was taken after offi-
cials noticed "dramatic and"
alarming" decreases in the
crawfish population.
"Too much pressure being
placed upon the crawfish in
our waters, so it was decided
that four months had not been
sufficient time to regroup and
regenerate species of crawfish
and lobster to be able to
flourish in our waters", he
said.
The minister said that this
year, the season will again open
on August 1 and end on March
31. However, in 2007, the sea-
son will not open until Sep-
tember 1 and will close at the
beginning of March.
The crawfish season will be


even more restricted for for-
eign fishermen, he added.
Mr Miller told the press that
officials and fishermen on oth-
er islands are in agreement with
the change. He said fishing
communities on Andros, Aba-
co and Spanish Wells "unani-
mously agreed" that the gov-
ernment should take the lead in
closing the season for a longer
period.
"In the Abacos for example,
over the last four years, there
has been a 50 per cent decrease
in the catches of crawfish. We
realise that some of this is
attributed to the hurricanes
that we had in our islands in
the last few years, but I think it
is probably a bigger problem
than the hurricane," Mr Miller
said.
"The over-harvesting of for-
eign sports fishermen in our
waters has also paid a negative
role in the fishing industry of
our country," he added.
Revealing that many of
these fishermen use illegal tac-


tics, Mr Miller told the press
that he has taken a proposal


to Cabinet that will dramati-
cally slash the number of


catches sports fishermen can
make in the Bahamas.


New rules for foreign fishermen


* By REUBEN SHEARER
NEW guidelines for foreign
fishermen will be implemented
in the first week of August
according to Minister of Agri-
culture and Fisheries Mr Leslie
Miller.
"As it stands now, the boats
that come into our country use a
catch system that is expressed
by the amount of persons on
their vessel," he said. "We want
to dramatically change that to
only a certain amount per vessel
per day.
"I find it asinine the way fish-
ermen are taking advantage of


our system," he said. "For this
reason, we are going from six
conchs per person a day to three
conchs per vessel per day."
Mr Miller said the government
hopes to eliminate the poaching
of conch as soon as possible.
"For decimal fish (for example
groupers and snappers) we are
going from 20 pounds per person
per day to 20 pounds per vessel
per day," he said. "For dolphins
(mahi-mahi), we will revert from
six per person per day to six per
vessel per day."
Mr Miller added that fisher-
men found catching undersized
lobsters in the Bahamas will be


warned only once, and that fur-
ther offence will result in more
serious measures.
"Starting in August we are
going to require that each hotel
and docking facility in the
Bahamas posts the new rules and
regulations," he added.
Mr Miller said that this way,
all tourists coming to the country
for sports or leisurely fishing will
be aware of the new guidelines.
"No Bahamian can drop their
line to fish on the shores of
Florida or elsewhere there-
fore, we should protect what
we've got in the same way," Mr
Miller said.

Project established to address gay



and lesbian issues in the Bahamas


* By KAHMILE REID
A NEW initiative has been
launched to address the
issues facing lesbian, gay,
bisexual and transgendered
persons in the Bahamas.
The Bahamian Sexuality
Project will give social scien-
tists and the general public a
better understanding of the
needs and issues facing the
Bahamas with regard to
racism and oppression based
on sexual orientation.
The project is now a part
of the research initiative
called the International
Sexuality and Mental
Health Research Project,
which is seeking to exam-
ine the experience of black
gay persons in the
Caribbean, Africa, the
United Kingdom and the
United States.
Project director Dr Kami-
lah Majied, professor of
social work at Howard Uni-
versity in Washington DC, is
currently visiting the
Bahamas.
She indicated that the
overall aim of the project is
to develop an understanding
of the needs and issues of les-
bian, gay, bisexual, and trans-
gendered communities in the
African Diaspora.
"The project is not about
promoting homosexuality or
any thing of that nature,"
Dr Majied said in an inter-
view with The Tribune. "its
just about being a support
and a resource for LGBT
people."
The initiative, as stipulated'
in the project description,
aims to compile an interna-
tional data base about LGBT
people in order to advance
international connections.
Also it is hopes that there
will be a better understand-
ing of the need and issues of
Bahamian LGBT people
with regard to racism and
oppression based on sexual
orientation.
According to Dr Majied,
black persons who are les-
bian, gay, bisexual or trans-
gendered have a very differ-
ent experience than their
white counterparts.
"You will find that even
within the gay community,
sometimes black people
experience racism", she said.
"We are trying to draw the
public's attention to this as


well and hopefully that will dis-
courage some of the discrimi-
nation that they experience
from family, co-workers et
cetera."
The initiative also hopes to
achieve a better understanding

Missionaries
in Haiti are

released by
kidnappers

* HAITI
.Port-au-Prince
TWO US missionaries were
released Thursday by kidnap-
pers who seized the men as they
went to church in the Haitian
capital, the FBI said, according
to Associated Press.
Tom Barron and William
Eugene Seastrum, both of High'
Point, North Carolina, were
released after their families paid
an undisclosed ransom, said
Judy Orihuela, a spokeswoman
for the FBI in Miami.
"They negotiated the amount
.and they were released," Ori-
huela said.
Both men were preparing to
return to the United States, the
FBI said.
Barron said in a phone inter-
view that he and his friend were
not harmed but he declined to
discuss his ordeal.
"I've been able to talk with
my family and for right now I'd
like to not say anything until
things settle down," he said.
In a statement released by the
FBI, the mLn' .l:mnI) thanked
the lm enfoicmciii agency and
others in Hai, jnd the United
States for their assistance. "We
would like to thank all the peo-
ple ... who worked to bring Tom
and Bill home," they said.
The captors had initially
sought US$500,000 but lowered
the ransom demand during
negotiations with the FBI, a UN
official said.
Barron, a minister at the non-
denominational Mustard Seed
church, and William Eugene
Seastrum, a member of the con-
gregation, were driving to
church early Sunday when the
kidnappers dragged them out
of their stopped car in Port-au-
Prince, the chaotic capital of the
impoverished Caribbean nation.


Puerto Rico

removed

from credit

alert list

PUERTO RICO
San Juan
A MAJOR credit eating
agency removed Puerto Rico
from its watch list Thursday,
making it easier for the U.S. ter-
ritory to borrow money as it
seeks to resolve the fiscal
crunch that led to a partial gov-
ernment shutdown in May,
according to Associated Press.
Standard & Poor's said it
took Puerto Rico off the credit
watch because the island had
finally adopted a budget after
two years of bickering and the
adoption of spending cuts and
its first-ever sales tax.
The U.S. Caribbean territo-
ry welcomed the move, which
covers US$17.5 billion
(eurol3.84 billion) in govern-
ment debt.
"With this decision, Standard
& Poor's has begun to recover
its confidence in the credit of
the island," said Alfredo
Salazar, president of the island's
Government Development
Bank.
In removing Puerto Rico
from its watch list, Standard &
Poor's did not raise the island's
-credit rating. Standard & Poor's
said Puerto Rico's economic
outlook remained negative
based on its track record of lax
expenditure and budget con-
trols that could offset the new
sales tax.
The 7 per cent sales tax is
scheduled to start November
15.


Veteran journalist and Tribune

columnist Sir Arthur Foulkes

'responds to criticism over comments

made about the United States


Why it is important to make




judgments about the USA


* By CHESTER ROBARDS
IN a functioning liberal democracy,
criticism of government policy is sup-
posed to be welcomed as a vital part of
social development.
However, in practice, when dis-
paraging observations are made about a
government, scrutiny is often turned on
the commentator especially if he or
she is an outsider.
Veteran journalist Sir Arthur Foulkes
found himself to be the focus of such
attention last week, after criticising the
US government for the war in Iraq.
Carl Cleveland, a resident of Miami,
posted a rebuttal to Sir Arthur's July 4
Tribune article on a populainBahamian
website levelling the charge that the
Bahamian public is quick to criticise
the US, but has not taken its own gov-
ernment to task for several failings.
Mr Cleveland slammed Sir Arthur
for criticising past and present US war
efforts and advised the Bahamas to
resolve certain local matters before crit-
icising America.
He cited squalid conditions at the
Carmichael Road Detention Centre,
alleged abuses at Her Majesty's Prison
and the low student grade point aver-
age.
He said these and other matters need
to be confronted before' the Bahamas
can develop an internationally critical
voice.
"I suggest very strongly you take a
serious look at your own country's seri-
ous problems," said Mr Cleveland.


Sir Arthur commented on Mr Cleve-
land's remarks in an interview with The
Tribune, sayingtthat readers of his col-
umn know he has commented strongly
on the local matters mentioned by Mr
Cleveland and that he understands and
appreciates America's contributions.
but says this does not mean he cannot
criticise the American government.
The veteran journalist said Bahami-
ans should be critical of the US espe-
cially at this time of heightened con-
flict in the Middle East.
"We don't want to see America
involved in wars and with a huge nation
al debt. So the criticism is made in that
spirit," he said. "It is important that we
understand what is happening in the
Middle East and that wherever we have
a voice in international forums, we raise
that voice and speak as best we can for
solutions to the problems in the Middle
East.
"What happens on the other side of
the globe today can affect us dramati.-
cally in a matter of days, weeks and
certainly in a matter of years," Sir
Arthur pointed out. "The most pro-
found global variable affected by the
conflicts is the price per barrel of oil.
"We are aware (of the conflicts)
because the minute there is escalation,
the price of gas goes up, so we feel that
immediately in our pocket," he said.
According to several Bahamian com-
mentators, although the Bahamas is far
removed from the Middle East geo-
graphically, it is not economically and
should not be morally.


In an article published- in The Tri-
bune this week, a Lebanese man living
in the Bahamas called for the country to
use its United Nations ties to vocalise
the need for an end to the conflict.
Since the beginning of the US "war
on terror" the Bahamas has had citi-
zens on'the front line.
With Bahamians being found in all
walks of US life, as well as assimilating
into more and more other societies


around the world, many commentators
feel Bahamians have as much of an
interest in international politics as they
do in local affairs and should feel com-
pelled to be critical of the nations
involved.

Obligation

The Tribune spoke to three Bahami-
an pundits who agreed that the
Bahamas as well as the Caribbean has
the obligation as part of the global conm-
munity to speak out against the actions
of governments they feel are wrong or
oppressive.
"It is foolish if Bahamians are afraid
to speak because of our relationship
with the US.'.continued Sir Arthur.
"We are not disloyal friends of the US if
we criticise them, we don't have any-
thing to be fearful about when express-
ing opinions about America."
Said US Embassy political economic
officer Gregory Floyd: "The United
States highly values individual freedoms,
including freedom of expression. The
United States always welcomes feed-
back positive and negative regarding
its actions.
"When that feedback comes from a
friend and Bahamians are among our
best it is even more valuable and
important.
"While we hope that feedback will
be constructive and fair, even when it is
not, we will listen and try to under-
stand.",

Owen Wilson can't

Review


You, Me and Dupree
Starring: Owen Wilson,
Kate Hudson, Matt Dillon
* By JASON DONALD
THERE'S no doubt that
Owen Wilson has talent. When
he has shared writing as well as
acting duties especially in
comic gems Bottle Rocket and
The Royal Tenenbaums the
results can be truly hilarious.
Yet, when not involved in the
scripting process, he is often
relied upon to keep a mediocre
movie afloat case in point:
You, Me and Dupree a com-
plete misfire that feels like
you're watching Ben Stiller's
cast-offs.
This basic comedy focuses
on a newly wed couple (Hudson
and Dillon) who are compelled
to temporarily house the
groom's slacker buddy (Wilson
- in case you hadn't guessed).
Cue hijinks involving blocked
toilets, accidental fires and peo-
ple falling off bikes and skate-
boards you get the picture.
Wilson's likeability is
stretched really thin here per-
fectly illustrated by the fact the
biggest laugh comes when he
gets hit by a car (that's not a
plot spoiler he doesn't get seri-
ously hurt).
And, in a bid to beef things
up a little, there's also a des-

operate subplot, involving
Michael Douglas as a nasty
father-in-law/boss, which
belongs in another movie.
You, Me and Dupree barely
succeeds on any level and is a
huge waste of talent. The next
time Owen, you write the jokes.

Out this week
Since the brilliant Sixth Sense,
director/writer M Night Shya-
malan's returns have been
, somewhat diminishing.
Unbreakable was almost
unwatchable, Signs went in the
wrong direction and The Vil-


lage was ... just plain rubbish.
Let's hope the bizarre sound-
ing LADY IN THE WATER
is a return to form.
Paul Giamatti plays a build-
ing manager who discovers*a
"narf" a mystical creature*-
and tries to help her back to her
world.
If Shyamalan sticks to his
favoured twist endings thao
could mean that either no
one's a narf, everyone's a narf,
Giamatti's a narf or you andAI
are. ',-,.
The preview gives little away.
but that premise is certainly,
intriguing and this should b%
well worth a look.

THE TRIBUNE


* By DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport Reporter
FREEPORT Grand
Bahama Power Company CEO
Dave Dunbar has stated that
the sale of Mirant's 55 per cent
stake in the company will not
result in any major changes to
the operation or staff in
Freeport.
Mirant Corporation, a major
US energy supplier, announced
plans on July 11 to sell all of its
nop-US assets in the Philippines
ald the Caribbean.
.Mr Dunbar officially spoke
with the media on Wednesday
fqr the first time since the
announcement last week.
I'The decision is a strategic
decision, he explained. "It has
nothing to say about the busi-
nses aren't doing well in the
Pilippines or the Caribbean -
because actually the business-
es are doing well."
"Yni m rarall three vearsc


ago, Mirant went into bank-
ruptcy, which was a big deal for
Mirant, but it didn't affect us
here at Grand Bahama Power
Company at all.
"In the same way, this is a big
deal for Mirant but I don't think
it would affect us at the power
company much at all," he said.
Mirant believes that an auc-
tion will allow it go realise the
price for Grand Bahama Power
Company and its other interna-
tional operations.
Mr Dunbar said he believes
that the process of the sale will
take about nine months,, and
assured that it would not cause
serious changes at the compa-
ny.
He revealed that an interest
has been expressed by some
Bahamian parties to purchase
Mirant's shares, but said it was
still too soon to say what the
outcome will be.
* Mirant Corporation controls
about 55 n r cent of the com-


pany, which employs 178 work-
ers.
The sale is not expected to
affect any of local workers or
managers, except perhaps for
Mr Dunbar himself.
"My job may very well
change, but Mirant has owned
this company since 1993 and
CEOs have kind of changed
and I am fourth CEO since
1993. But then, Mirant has
always said we need to make
this company mainly run with
local managers, and I think that
may be continued, and I would
expect it would as it usually is
the right way to do business so
other than me, I don't see much
changes," he said.
Mr Dunbar the company's
safety, environmental and com-
munity serVice programmes will
remain an important focus.
He said that Mirant, which
emerged from Chapter 11
bankruptcy protection in
2003, wants to now focus on

its US businesses.
"They are going to do sever-
al different things they are
g6ing to buy back some of their
own shares on the New York
Stock Exchange (NYSE), and


normally hen you buy back
your own shares the share price
goes up, and so they are trying
,to add va-ue through buying
back their own shares," he said.
Mr Dunbar said Mirant's


divestment of non-US assets
includes a large area of owner-
ship of its power plant in the
Philippines, and of interests in
Jamaica, Trinidad, Curacao, and
Grand Bahama.

Climate expert urges fitting of




catalytic converters in all cars


' By KAHMILE REID
.TRANSPORT officials
should require all imported
vehicles to be fitted with cat-
alytic converters according to
director of meteorology Arthor
Rolle.
Noting that traffic is one of
the main contributors to green-
house gas emissions in the
Bahamas, Mr Rolle explained)
tlkat the converters could to
much to address the problem.
This was just one of many
recommendations made in the
latest National Communication
on Climate Change (NCCC) to
the government.


Speaking at a press confer-
ence on climate change on
Monday, Mr Rolle said the
choice of vehicles with low
emissions of carbon dioxide and
other greenhouse gases is
becoming a global trend.
A catalytic converter is a
device that treats exhaust
before it leaves a car engine.
Most modern cars are
equipped with a "three-way"
converter, which treats carbon
monoxide, VOCs (volatile
organic compounds) and NOx
(nitrogen oxide) molecules.
According to Mr Rolle, all
drivers whose vehicles do not
have a catalytic converter


New requirement would cut


greenhouse gas emissions


should be required to get one.
He explained that the device
can easily be installed in the
engine of a car.
The NCCC is a document
that was established under Arti-
cles 4.1 and 12 of the United
Nations Framework Conven-
tion on Climate Change
(UNFCCC).


The articles require that all
participating countries give a
report on their national cir-
cumstances'in respect to climate
change.
In addition to fulfilling the
country's international obliga-
tion under the UNFCCC, the
main purpose of this "stand


alone" document, according to
Mr Rolle, is to assist the gov-
ernment in formulating policies
for sustainable development
with respect to climate change.
Ministc of Energy and Envi-
ronment Dr Marcus Bethel,
who also spoke at the confer-
ence, added that through the


NCCC, the Bahamas has a
responsibility and is doing its
part in addressing the problem
of global warming.
Though the Bahamas con-
tributes minimally to the global
emissions, Dr Bethel warned
that this fact does not take the
country out of harm's way.
He pointed out that as a
coastal nation, the Bahamas has
resources that are very fragile
and can be greatly impacted by
climate change.
Dr Bethel said this is espe-
cially so with regards to
resourcesthat are vital to the
tourism product.

,Alternate energy sources


may become a necessity


ji By KRISTINA McNEIL
RISING oil prices along with
.global warming and climate
change could lead the Bahamas
to explore alternative sources
,bf energy, a local weather
'expert said.
Director of meteorology and
(chairman of the Climate
( change Committee Arthur
Rolle said the government is
,also looking at expanding pub-
3ic awareness programmes
.about these challenges.
"Deforestation and the indis-
Scriminate use of electricity and
fuel really contribute to our
.greenhouse gas (GHG) emis-
7sions," he said.
',' Mr Rolle was speaking at the
" conclusion of the workshop for
the second national Communi-
cation on Climate Change on
, Wednesday.
"What we really want people
Sto know is, even though we are
a small contributor to GHG
"emission in the atmosphere,
that they should take precau-
tions to cut back on their emis-
sions and use efficient trans-
'portation."
I,, Mr Rolle also encouraged the


public to use cleaner energy
whenever possible and adhere
to any policies the government
may initiate in relation to land
and energy use and climate
change.
Mr Rolle pointed to Scotland
and Brazil as countries that
encourage companies to devel-
op renewable energy and look
to alternate sources of fuel, such
as ethanol.
As the climate of the world
changes, reduction in GHG
emissions should be a priority in
the Bahamas, he said.
Recycling Vitamalt and beer
bottles, car batteries and
derelict vehicles is a step in the
right direction, but is still only
done on a small scale.
"What we need is a massive
education campaign to make
recycling work," Mr Rolle said.
Public educator and outreach
specialist from Belize Anthony
Deyal says the media and faith-
based organizations are vital to
any education programme.
"The faith-based organisa-
tions are really important
because a lot of people are con-
vinced that this is God's country
and that nothing will happen -


but things happen.
"That's when the faith-based
organizations remind people the
Lord helps people who help
themselves," Mr Deyal said.
"If behaviour is not modified
we will see more periods of
intense rain, more landslides,
more Dengue (fever) and more
Malaria as the climate changes,"
Mr Deyal said.
According to Mr Rolle, the
Bahamian government is now
considering the use of solar
energy to offset the strain on
traditional energy sources.
Already measures have been
taken to eliminate duty taxes
on solar panels and heaters to
encourage Bahamians to
explore alternative methods, he
said.
Solar energy is just one
source of alternative energy -
others include geothermal and
wind systems.
One person attending the
workshop suggested that gov-
ernment lead the country by
example by adopting the use
of energy efficient vehicles and
solar panels first.

TiF TRIRI IIIF


* By ROYANNE
FORBES-DARVILLE
A CATHOLIC priest remains in hos-
pital today after he was rescued from an
inferno at the Holy Family Rectory by fire
officials yesterday morning.
Officer in Charge of the Central Detec-
tive Unit Marvin Dames told The Tribune
that officers responded to a call of a struc-
tural fire at 3.30 am on Friday.
"The fire was extinguished to the north-
east section of the rectory. There was
extensive damage to the building and its
contents," he said.
Mr Dames said that Father David Coop-
er was initially treated by EMS ambulance
staff for smoke inhalation, then taken to
hospital.
The rescue was timely, said Archbishop
Patrick Pinder of the Catholic Diocese.
"Early this morning there was a fire.
Father David Cooper, who was at the rec-
tory at the time, was left disoriented by


the event but thankfully he suffered no
burns from the fire," Archbishop Pinder
said. "Current plans are for him to remain
in hospital for further observation."
The rectory fire was the third major
blaze this week and one of two fires that
took place yesterday.
I The massive blaze damaged only the
priest's home, located directly behind the
parish church off Robinson Road.
When The Tribune arrived on the scene
hours after the blaze had been put out,
the front door was barred shut with pieces
of board.
The charred remains of an upstairs room
were visible from the home's driveway.
The roof appeared to have caved in and
an iron gate on an upstairs porch remained
ajar and bent out-of-shape.
The windows to the home were shut,
with soot blanketing all of the window-
panes of the upstairs living space.
Police are continuing to investigate the
matter.

New York man



talks his way ou



of kidnapping



ordeal in Haiti


* NEW YORK
S-Albany
AFTER being dragged from
his vehicle and marched
through a gang-ridden neigh-
borhood at gunpoint, an upstate
New York man managed to
charm his Haitian kidnappers
and unintentionally negotiate
his release, according to Asso-
ciated Press.
"As kidnapping go, this one
was about as good as one could
have asked for," Charles
Adams said Friday in an e-nmail.
Adams, 70, of Queensbury,
New York, was in Haiti working
on a water treatment program
for Pure Water for the World, a
Rutland, Vermont-based non-
profit organization, when he
and his driver were captured at
about 3 p.m. Wednesday.
His kidnappers stripped him
of most of his clothing, taking
his computer, passport, credit
cards and everything else they
could find. He salvaged his dri-
ver's license, a debit card and
a credit card by hiding them in
his sock.
Adams was shuffled through
alleyways in Cite Soleil, a crime-
ridden slum on the edge of
Haiti's capital, Port-au-Prince.
He was held at a compound and
informed that his freedom
would cost $500,000, according
to'the e-mail he sent to family
and friends after his release.
SWhile there, Adams and oth-
er kidnapping victims had their
cell phones and address books
confiscated as the men tried to
find someone willing to pay a
ransom for their freedom.
Adams tried to communicate
with his captors and even tried
to teach them how they could
set up clean wafer projects in
the areas they controlled.
"I suggested that they could
save the lives of thousands of
the children of their own people
dying in Cite Soleil with clean
water," Adams said. "And I
suggested that this would be
pretty good (public relations)
for their gang, both to the pub-
lic and to the people they fought
'o control.....They expressed
some interest in that."
Later Adams and his driver,

spots of Port-au-Prince


Paul Fidelin Orelus, were taken
to a house where they had a
clean bed. After spending much
of the evening speaking with his
captors about religion while
observing them smoke mari-
juana, Adams said they began
to read passages from the Cre-
ole Bible.
"We talked a lot about being
'being brothers' and some
(gang) members professed reli-
gious convictions," he said.

Escape
Orelus escaped early the next
morning through the roofless
bathroom, despite Adams'
attempts to dissuade him.
Not long after the escape,
Adams' captors told him he was
free to go. Less than 24 hours
after he was dragged from his
rental car, they provided him
with an armed escort through
the more dangerous parts of the
gang-ridden neighborhood, he
said.
"They went out of their way
to assure me that their gang was
not like those other gangs, that
they were not, or did not want
to be, criminals," Adams wrote
in the e-mail.
Adams' ordeal was separate
from that of two North Carolina
missionaries who were also kid-
napped and released this week,
the FBI said.
Adams will stay in Haiti to
work on a water treatment pro-
ject until July 28 before travel-
ing to the Dominican Repub-
lic. He plans to return to New
York Aug. 1.
Once relatively rare in Haiti,,
kidnapping became an almost


a daily occurrence after a
bloody revolt toppled former
.president Jean-Bertrand Aris-
tide in February 2004.
After leveling off for several
months, the kidnapping have
worsened again in recent weeks.

secure its berth against Mexico, but
after rain interrupted play, the team
had a heartbreaking 1-0 loss in eight
innings.
Mexico took advantage of a costly
mistake by catcher Philip Culmer,
whose errant throw back to the
mound got away from ace pitcher
Edney 'the Heat' Bethel, who came in
Sas relief for his brother, Edmund
S 'Binks' Bethel, in the fifth.
S That allowed Mexico to squeeze
home a runner from third base to seal
the 1-0 victory, dropping the Bahamas
to 2-3.
Perry Seymour, who is assisting
manager Godfrey 'Gully' Burnside as
a coach, said the errors have haunted
the team throughout the tournament.
"Our pitching is holding up and our
offence is coming around, but our
defense has made one or two mis-
;* takes that has hurt us," Seymour
S- stressed.
Seymour said they have gotten
some stellar pitching from Edney
Bethel and Alec Rolle has stepped in
and performed exceptionally well in
shortstop.
He said that while they could use
Some more offense and with some


tighter'defense, they could have easi-
ly been in the driver's seat in their
team standings with a playoff spot
secured.
While the softball team had to play
the Dominican Republic in the final
game of the round robin tournament
on Friday night to determine if they
would make the playoffs, the

Friday's competition, the Bahamas
was sitting in 16th place in the medal
count with three.
Swimmer Jeremy Knowles, who
made history by becoming the first to

silvers to his ledger, while a bronze
came from the women's 400 metre
freestyle relay team of Nikia Deveaux,
Ariel Weech, Arianna Vanderpool-
Wallace and Alana Dillette.
They did it in a time of three min-

old national record of 4:08.84 set by
the team of sisters Teisha and Alicia

Johnathan Massie, Barron 'Turbo'

team will triumph in Caribbean tournament


* By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter
THE Bahamas Baseball Federation has put
together a "versatile team" that manager Teddy
Sweeting is confident will win the Caribbean
Zone Little 'League Qualifying Tournament.
The tournament for boys ages 11-12 will be
held in Vega Baja, Puerto Rico from July 21-30
and the winner of the tournament will represent
the Caribbean at the Little League World Series
in Williamsport, Pennsylvania in August.
"If we win this tournament, it will be a very big
feat for us to go and represent the entire
Caribbean," Sweeting said.


The team left yesterday and begin competi-
tion on Saturday against teams from Aruba,
Boinier, British Virgin Islands, Curacao, Domini-
can Republic, Puerto Rico 1 and II, St. Martin and
the US Virgin Islands.
Sweeting, who travel with coaches Arthur
'Baldy' Seymour and Eric 'No Go' Albury, said
the team has been well put together and assured
the Bahamian public that they are going to Puer-
to Rico with the view of advancing to Pennsyl-
vania.
"Our pitching is very strong, so we feel we can
qualify," Sweeting pointed out. "We're not going
witrh any other expectations, but to qualify with
the team that we have."


In order to achieve their goal, Sweeting said
they compiled a team with players who have the
capability of playing more than one position.
The players traveling on the team are as fol-
lows:
From Queen's College Geran Albury, 11,
who play both out and infield; Leslie Darville, 11,
a pitcher/first baseman and Kristian Thompson,
11, a second baseman/ pitcher.
From St Augustine's College Ashton Aliens,
12, a shortstop/pitcher; D'Juan Seymour, 12, a
third baseman/pitcher/catcher and Theodore
Sweeting Jr., 12, a catcher/pitcher/ infielder.
From St Andrew's School Matthew Con-
stantakis, 12, a catcher; Alex Martinborough, 12,


an infielder; Stefan Nembhard, 13, a pitcher/in/out
fielder and Timothy Smith, 13, a second base-
man.
From Aquinas College Rodney Forbes, 12,
an outfielder/shortstop/ pitcher and Paul Smith,
12, a pitcher/third baseman/catcher.
From Summit Academy Alexander
Euteneuer, 12, a third baseman/ pitcher.
"This is truly a versatile team," Sweeting said.
"In youth baseball, all of the players have to play .
and in this circumstances, all of the players can
play various positions.
"Our pitching is the strongest aspects of the
team and we are confident. We feel we have the
best opportunity with this group of young men."


Government increases sporting




grants by more than $100,000


By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter
THE Bahamas Government
has agreed to amend the list of
athletes on the subventions,
increasing the total amount of
grants offered by more than
$100,000.
Minister of Youth, Sports
and Housing Neville Wisdom
made the revelation on Thurs-
day.
Last year, the government
spent more than $500,000 on
the subventions. This year's list
has pegged that total to more
than $600,000.
Added to the list for the first
time were swimmers Nikia
Deveaux ($12,000) and Alana
Dillette ($12,000), tennis play-
ers Larikah Russell ($19,600),
H'Cone Thompson ($12,000),
Tershelle Burrows ($12,000)
and Jessica Sweeting ($12,000)
and track stars Donald Thomas
($19,600), Trevor -Barry
S'($19,600), Adrian Griffin
($19,600), Andretti Bain
($12,000) and Shamar Sands
($12,000).
Taken off the list are swim-
mer Nicholas Rees ($19,600);
tennis players Timothy Neeley
($12,000) and Ryan Sweeting


($12,000) and track and field
athletes Philippa Arnette-
Williei ($19,600), Tavara and
Tamara Rigby ($12,000 each)
and Oscar Greene ($12,000).
Wisdom said the subvention
committee scrutinised the list
of athletes whose names were
submitted by their national
associations and federations for
ratification.
The subventions committee
members include Sports
Ambassador Tommy Robin-
son, Bahamas Olympic Asso-
ciation president Arlington
Butler, Bahamas Association
of Athletic Associations' presi-
dent Mike Sands, National
Sports Advisory Council's
chairman Alpheus 'Hawk' Fin-
layson, Director of Sports Mar-
tin Lundy, Sports Consultants
Fred Sturrup and Grafton Ifill
II and Deputy Director of
Sports Frank 'Pancho' Rah-
ming.
"The committee looked at
the list in terms of the list of
the sports policy and it also
took in consideration special
circumstances as recommend-
ed by the federations," Wisdom
said.
The athletes were either
placed in a list called "Elite Ath-


letes" or "Developmental Ath-
lete," and they received their
stipends according to the list.
"An elite athlete would be
someone categorised by their
sport as being world class,"
Wisdom stated. "The develop-
mental athletes are those that
are being considered for elite
status."
In reviewing the list, Wisdom
said that some athletes were
removed from the subvention
list for a lack of performance
that would designate them as
"elite athlete" and some have
been added to both the "elite"
and "developmental" lists,
based on their performances.
Wisdom thanked those ath-
letes who have waited patient-
ly to be added to the list -
either as elite or developmen-
tal. There have also been some
athletes placed on a probation
list because of injuries.
All athletes named to the list,
according to Wisdom, will be
required to compete for the
Bahamas on the national team
at the prescribed events such
as the Central American and
Caribbean Games, the Pan
American Games, the Com-
monwealth Games and the
Olympic Games.

Junior girls getting ready to compete



in basketball tournament in Mexico


* By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter
AFTER watching the men and women and
junior boys national teams fall short in their qual-
ifying tournaments, the Bahamas Basketball Fed-
eration is.preparing to send its junior girls team off.
to compete.
Head coach Felix 'Fly' Musgrove and his assis-


tant Sharel Cash have been preparing the team to
travel to Mexico on August 1 for the Under-21
Centro Basket. If the team finish in the top three,
they will have to remain in Mexico to play in the
Tournament of Americas that would follow
immediately after the Centro Basket.
"When they started it, it was rough, but as I
watched them, I noticed that the majority of the
programmes that they came from only had them


running up and down," Musgrove stressed.
Musgrove, who is leaving as as the head of the
physical education department after 15 and a half
years, is expected to make the final cut for the
team on his return from a one-week visit to
Jamaica next week.
Some of the top high school players have been
trying out for the team. Practices are currently
being staged at the Kendal Isaacs Gymnasium.


Musgrove said that one of the problems they
have been faced with; like the other national
teams, is that the fact that while the nucleus of the
team was working out for quite some time, they
had a couple of players who only recently joined.
As a result, Musgrove said they had to go through
the training process all over again. But he insist
that it is important because all of the players will
need to be famaliarised with the team play.


Youngsters complete basketball camp


BASKETBALL
by RENALDO DORSETT
Sports Reporter
DOZENS of campers left the DW David Gym-
nasium yesterday, with a myriad of new basketball.
skills, hardware and insightful words of encoiUr-
agement from the camp's instructors.
The D-Squad Basketball camp concluded Fri-
day afternoon with a plethora of exhibition games,
skills contests and prize giveaways.
Students of the D-Squad camp faced off against
several teams from HO Nash Junior High School,
coached by basketball guru Patti Johnson.
The D-Squad showed their tutelage over the
past three weeks translated well into in-game sit-
uations, as they competed hard in closely con-
tested games in each division including the girls,
boys under 10, boys under 15, and boys 16 and
older divisions.
Jakia Brown was dominant in the girls divi-
- sion taking home four awards.
She was the MVP in the girls' division, won
the lay-up competition, was a runner up in the
three-point contest and was named Most Out-
standing camper.
Resenio Dorsette was equally as proficient in
the boys 16 and over division capturing first place
fifiishes in the three-point contest, hotshot contest


and was named MVP.
Camp Director, Harcourt McCoy, said'the
camp's initial year was a success and he looks
for this success to continue in years to come.
"Our first year was small, but we consider that
a benefit to a lot of the campers," he said, "We
had a broad scope of campers and were able to
give a lot of individual instruction to the campers,
they all improved and it was evident today
because they all did a good job."
McCoy said ideally the camp will spark many
campers to become students of the game and
become more focused on improving.
"I wanted them to know that in order to
improve in the five fundamentals of basketball
you have to be willing to put in a lot of hard
work not just in the summer, but all year
round," he said, "With the sponsors begin able to
provide each of the campers with a basketball
hopefully the campers will continue to worked
and to practice so when school starts if they want
to try out for a school team they will be ready."

West almost surely has five

Accordingly, at trick three

is to exhaust East of spades and so

last two tricks and makes the slam.
