By NATARIO McKENZIE
AFTER a month of star-
tling and at times emotional
testimony a iury of eight men
and four women found
Cordell Farrington guilty of
-.the murder of 22-year-old
The decision was unani-
mous, 12-0. When the verdict
was read family members of
the deceased were elated.
-Some burst into tears, strug-
gling to maintain their com-
.',posure as the judge continued
,Outside the courtroom,
Jamal Robins' parents, who
had been emotional through-
out the trial, expressed their
relief that it was over and
praised the prosecution for its
work. Jamal's parents said
they were happy with the ver-
dict and that when their son's
remains are turned over to
them, they will take them back
to Freeport for a proper bur-
i."I am very happy with the
.verdict, justice has been
-served and now my son can
test. I can now give him a
proper Christian burial and
.-.have my mind at ease,"
----tEdward Robins, Jamal's
father said yesterday. "That's
my only son, he and I were
very close until somehow he
-drifted off and I lost control
Sof him," he said. Mr Robins
called for Farrington to face
"I want to see him hang
because he showed no mer-
cy," he said.
An emotional Christine
*-, Scott accused Farrington of
S intentionally "playing crazy."
Mrs Scott said that she would
probably be attending the tri-
Sal or trials into the deaths of
the four Grand Bahama boys.
"It's because through me
that they found those boys,"
she said. "I was searching, I
contacted him (Cordell) and
he came and said that he was
going to help me find my child
S'because I know he was the last
Person I saw with my Jamal.
-So he was the one that I was
supposed to look. for to find
Jamal," she said.
Prosecutors will not say if
they plan to have Farrington
face separate trials into the
murders of each of the, four
Grand Bahama boys. Deputy
director of public prosecutions
Cheryl Grant-Bethel said that
within the next three months.
the prosecution .plais.tostart
those proceedings. A sentenc-
ing hearing for Farrington's
conviction for the murder of
Robins has been scheduled for
September 11 at 2.30 pm.
Following the verdict, Far-
rington had been asked if he
had anything to say. He told
the court, "I turned myself in
to police because I knew I
committed a crime," (the rest
was incoherent). Farrington
was whisked away from Bank
Lane in an unmarked police
vehicle after he was escorted
out of court yesterday.
Throughout the month-long
trial, jurors heard testimony
from thirty-two witnesses,
including those who knew the
accused, police investigators,
forensic experts, psychiatrists
as well as the accused man
who earlier this week gave an'
unworn statement from the
prisoner's dock. Farrington
was charged in Grand
Bahama in October 2003 with
Robins' murder. He was also
charged with the murders of
four Grand Bahama boys.
The case went tothe jury
around 12.30pm yesterday. It
was after 3.30pm when they
returned to the courtroom
with a guilty verdict.
In her summation of the
case, Justice Anita Allen
reminded the jurors of the
oath that they had taken when
they were impanelled, which
was to return a true verdict
based on the facts. She told
the jury that they were the
judges of the facts and could
choose to accept or refuse any
evidence or testimony that
had been presented to them.
In Farrington's defence, Ms
Farquharson had argued that
the accused man suffered from
an "abnormality of mind" at
the time he murdered Robins.
She leaned heavily on the tes-
- timony of psychiatrist Dr.
Michael Neville. She had
pointed to the accused man's
claims of a tumultuous child-
hood consisting of physical
and sexual abuse as a means
to justify his later personality

Polluted water distribution 'has to be addressed'
* By CRYSTAL JOHNSON-COLLIE
Tribune Staff Reporter
ANGRY Nassau residents claim they con-
tinue to suffer at the hands of persons who
distribute polluted water to consumers.
Several persons have told The Tribune that
this is a common practice and has to be
addressed because of the health problems
Angela King said she purchased a five-gallon
bottle of water that had paint and debris inside.
She said that when she opened the bottle a
foul smell was released.
She called on health officials to stop persons
who pretend to sell purified water, but instead
fill bottles with well water.
"Suppose I was a blind person and could not
have seen what was at the bottom of that bot-
tle, I would have drank that water and given it
to my small children. I am aware of so many
elderly people who have gotten use to this
because they have no other means of getting
purified water," Mrs King said.
The problem is a repetition of a situation
that arose in 2003 when government had to
crack down on persons who sold untreated
water to consumers.
At the time, the issue was said to be of seri-
ous concern to the Department of Health and
Environmental Services, which implemented
new rules to address the issue.
Efforts were made to speak to officials from
the Department of Environmental Health yes-
terday, but no one was available to comment
on the issue.

Govt to 'update'
* By CRYSTAL
Tribune Staff Reporter
THE government is in the
process of making plans to
"update" the country's cul-
tural policies according to
director of cultural affairs Dr
Dr Bethel explained that
her department is in the
process of developing an
administrative structure for
junkanoo, "which would serve
as a government-based entity
that is expected to have its
own corporate infrastructure."
She said this at a press con-
ference to announce that the'
Bahamas has been chosen to
host Carifesta, a roving multi-
disciplinary arts festival that
began in 1972 in Guyana.
It is to be held in the
Bahamas for the first time
ever in 2008," she said.
Dr Bethel also announced
the relocation of the Cultural
Affairs Office, which was for-
merly located on Thompson
Boulevard, to building D on
the grounds of the former
Ministry of Education head-
quarters on Shirley Street.
According to Dr Bethel, the
Bahamas Carifesta Commit-
tee aims to attract 5,000 for-
eigners to the event.
Senior cultural affairs officer
Dr Patricia Bazard explained
that Carifesta aims to create
opportunities for talented
Bahamians celebrate the arts.
"The Bahamas has so much
to offer. But many times
Bahamians would look at
another country and consider
that country better than ours,"
said Dr Bazard.
She said Bahamians must
realise that there is a great
deal of talent in the country
and that what is needed is a
greater level of involvement
in the arts.
The overall objective, of
Carifesta is to deepen aware-
ness and knowledge of the
diverse aspirations of
Caribbean people and to fos-
ter a vision of Caribbean uni-
Dr Bethel said the only dif-
ficulty facing the department
in hosting the event will be

The committee estimated
that Carifesta will cost about
$1 million to host, pointing out
that junkanoo costs the
Bahamas around $2 million
Dr Bethel encouraged busi-
ness owners and vendors to
take part in the event, which
has the potential to generate a
great deal of revenue.
Carifesta will involve per-
formances by numerous local
and Caribbean artists and will
be profit-oriented and sub-
contracted to the promoter of
Dr Bethel added that Car-
ifesta is an excellent opportu-
nity for the Bahamas to build
relationships with neighbor-
Dr Anne Peterson-Higgins,
special events coordinator,
said: "I want to encourage our
Bahamians to get involved in
this event, because our little
Bahamas has so much talent
and we have so much to offer
if we just try."

ticipating in the event are

FREEPORT More than 20 private avia-
tion representatives from the United States
and Canada were hosted by tourism officials,
to a familiarisation trip to Grand Bahama.*
Earl Miller of the Bahamas Tourist Office
said that private and corporate jt operators
play a vital role in the country's economy.
About 26 fixed base operators (FBOs)
were hosted to a luncheon at theOur Lucaya
Resort, where they met with tourism and
immigration and customs officials.
Mr Miller said the group will travel next to
Exuma and Long Island.
"What we are trying to do here is to col-
lectively get all of the FBO's in Florida, which
is our number one market, coupled with
FBO's around the US and Canada, to bring
them down to show them what we have to
offer in the islands of the Bahamas.
"Today, the group met with customs and
immigration officials to see first-hand how
easy it is clear customs and immigration and

of marine facilities. This was
evident as police divers did a
safety check at Lucayan
Harbour on Wednesday pri-
or to the arrival of the US
Navy vessel Curts, whose
225 ship personnel are in
town for shore leave.
Superintendent of Police
Mr. Basil Rahming who was
on hand to watch the police
divers carry out an under-
water search at the Lucayan ,
Harbour said: "we are so
proud of the members of the
Royal Bahamas Police Force
with what has transpired

bour this morning.

dive team into the water to

ming this new capability is
something that is unique to
the Caribbean and is not
found in many other

they have about procedures in the Bahamas."
Mr Miller explained that corporate clients
prefer to go to FBOs which are much like a
He said that instead of going to govern-
ment airports, the FBOs offer private jets'
and special services such as limousines and-
special hotel rooms..
"That is very important for clients flying on
corporate jets because they don't want to be
in the crowd, and they want to be served
first-hand that you wouldn't be able to get
at the regular airport," he said.
Billy Floreal, a representative of Embry
Riddle Aeronautical University, said his insti-
tution also works with companies, govern-
ments and aviation organizations.
S"There is an interest in trying to get avia-
tion people coming to the Bahamas, and this
is a fact-finding trip for me to see what the
islands have to offer and possibly later on as
we work with tourism officials, to see what we
do to bring aviation people in to the
Bahamas," he said.

contested by one of the
world's biggest oil refineries,
according to Associated Press.
The Hovensa oil refinery,
owned by the state oil compa-

SYork-based Amerada Hess
Corporation, is suing to strike
down the law, passed by the

"There is no reason why a
private employer should have
to bear that burden with no
limitation," Henry Fuerzeig,
an attorney with Hovensa, the
Western Hemisphere's sec-
ond-largest oil refinery, said
But critics of the lawsuit
argue the measure is necessary
to sustain families of soldiers
deployed to Iraq, Afghanistan

losing their homes or having
quality-of-life issues while
away serving their country,"
said Emmett Hansen, U.S.
Virgin Islands director of the

Hovensa, the U.S. territo-
ry's largest private employer,
sued on July 28 seeking to
stop making up the salary dif-

employees serving in the
Many U.S. states offer to
pay public employees the dif-
ference between their federal
military pay and state pay, and
many large U.S. employers
voluntarily pay the difference,
seeing it as a matter of patrio-
tism or good business.
The new law requires large

Refinery operators say
that's unfair, since the money
comes out of a corporation's
bottom line, while government
agencies rely on taxpayer dol-

make it fair," said Fuerzeig.

THE FNM has united
firmly behind South Aba-
co candidate Edison Key
and expects to sweep to
victory throughout the
island in the general elec-
tion, say party officials.
Though Mr Key was
seen by some as a contro-
versial choice, he now has
the full support of FNMs
on the island, they added.
"Mr Key is totally com-
mitted to defeating the
PLP and, whether there
are two or three seats on
Abaco for the election,
we'll win them all," said
Jack Albury, chairman of
the FNM's South Abaco

two seats on the island,

there are three, then we'll

Mr Albury predicted
that Mr Key would beat
.. the PLP by at least 500
votes, whoever was cho-
sen to run against him.
"Edison has brought a
huge following to the
FNM," he said. "We have
a united front behind
him.-By the time the elec-
tion is called, a very high
percentage of Abaconi-
ans will vote for him.

Surprise test for explosives liquids
SCIENTISTS and engineers at the Pacific
Northwest National Laboratory in Richland
have created a device that they say could be
used to rapidly and accurately identify any
suspicious liquids carried on board by air-
The device, which uses ultrasound, can
even tell the difference between Coke and
Diet Coke. Despite the fact that the research
was done at a national lab, the device's exis-
tence appears to have come as news to many
officials at the Department of Homeland
Security and Transportation Security Admin-
Ever since British authorities announced
they had thwarted a terrorist plot to use dis-
guised liquid explosives on airplanes, spokes-
people for'the federal agencies have repeat-
edly said there is no "operationally viable" or
"feasible" technological way today to rapid-
ly and routinely screen for liquid explosives at
Aaron Diaz, a physicist at the Richland
lab, respectfully disagrees.
"We're making these measurements in
about three to four seconds, but I think we
could get it down to one or two," said Diaz,
who led the lab's effort to develop its patent
pending HAZAID (Hazardous Material
Acoustic Inspection Device).
"We've been getting barraged with calls
about this for the last week," he said. Some of
those calls have been with Homeland Security
officials anxious to learn more, Diaz said.
"It's'very coincidental that this (terror plot)
would come just as we were wrapping the
project up," he said. TSA officials had been
aware of an earlier, similar prototype the lab
developed years ago, Diaz said, but there
hadn't been any urgent official interest in
their new-and-improved liquid explosive
detector until last week.
"The earlier unit was designed for large
volume containers, based on U.S. Customs
work at the borders," said Diaz. "We realized
years ago there was going to be a need for
looking at very small containers."
The device uses sound waves to precisely
identify liquids. An earlier, larger version of
this acoustic inspection device was created
in the early 1990s at the Richland lab for
chemical weapons inspections after the 1991
Gulf War. The national lab today trains bor-
der guards from many countries in the use of
this technology as part of an international
treaty prohibiting chemical weapons traf-
Diaz, working with his team of PNNL sci-
Sentists, engineers and software programmers,
years ago set out to modify this technology so
it could be used on smaller containers. For
use in airports, he knew the device had to
provide rapid and accurate identification of
liquids contained in almost any kind of mate-
"We completely redesigned the thing," he
said. His team had to modify the electronics,
alter the nature of the sound waves and re-
programme the software to increase its sen-
Unlike the older units, Diaz said, the HAZ-
AID measures both the speed of sound waves
travelling through liquid and the attenuation
- how the waves are altered as they travel.
"This really increases our measurement
sensitivity," Diaz said.
But one of the complaints transportation
officials have had with earlier detection meth-
ods is a lack of specificity too many false
Amy Kudwa, a spokeswoman for TSA,
said in response to media inquiries last week
that it is the high error rate of many of these
new detection technologies that has pre-
vented the agency from putting them into
Critics noted, however, that the highly
dubious effectiveness of an airport screen-
ing technique known as "behaviour obser-
vation" didn't prevent TSA from putting it
into use at a dozen airports. The agency now
has "behaviour detection officers" who look
for facial features or mannerisms some psy-
chologists believe involuntarily reveal people
up to no good.
Not everyone is convinced the approach '
will ever be viable as a tool for airport screen-
ing. Some members of Congress have said
they are concerned TSA has emphasized
funding personnel increases while cutting
back on technological developments.
A 2004 Government Accountability Office
report noted that the agency, in 2003, trans-
ferred more than half of its $110 million
research budget to cover personnel costs.
This directly undermined research projects,
the GAO reported, that were dedicated to
developing new technologies that could,
"detect weapons, liquid explosives and flam-
mables in carry-on luggage or passengers'
Diaz and his team at PNNL, fortunately,
were not dependent on TSA funding for
development of HAZAID. They won't reveal
yet who the client is for the device, but the lab
routinely works on contract for commercial
interests to develop new products. The patent
that was filed for HAZAID is held by the pri-
vate Battelle Memorial Institute.
Diaz said he believes the new device is
nearly ready for prime time, though it may
need to go through more testing to convince
officials that it is highly unlikely to produce
many false alarms.

EDITOR, The Tribune.
THIS past August Monday
weekend, Bahamians cele-
brated that special and histor-
ical day of Emancipation
throughout the Common-
wealth of the Bahamas. After
more than three hundred
years of suffering under the
shackles of slavery, by a Roy-
al proclamation, Queen Vic-
toria ended one of the most
evil chapters in the history of
colonialism. Millions of
Africans had been stolen
from Africa for the purpose
of being sold into slavery in
the colonies. Their basic
human rights and dignity were
taken away. Their lives were
physically controlled with oth-
ers dictating their behaviour.
Emancipation was supposed
to mark the beginning of a
new dawn of liberation in
what is referred to as a
civilised world. The former
African slave was "free" and
thus responsible for the
moulding of his own destiny.
The sky was the limit and the
only limit was his imagination.
However, physical slavery was
replaced by an even greater
and more sinister menace, one
that had no regards for race,
creed, colour or religion. This
was the concept of mental
slavery. By controlling your
mind and thoughts, an oppres-
sor could abuse and degrade
you without any physical
infliction. Psychological scars
are slow to heal and can be
just as painful many years lat-
er as the day they were inflict-
ed. The great reggae legend
Bob Marley sang, "Emanci-
pate yourselves from mental
slavery...none but ourselves
can free our minds!" Amaz-
ingly, after 172 years since the
original day of Emancipation,
far too many of us are still vic-
tims of mental slavery.
,. Mental slavery has empow-
ered corrupt and misdirected
leaders over the years. By
brainwashing a nation, a "wut-
less" government can get
away with the most barbaric
and demented acts. By skil-
fully controlling the people
with only providing them with
a selective amount of infor-
mation always results in social
disaster and disorder for that
nation. Oftentimes, the nation
pays a terrible price for such
ignorance, with those exploit-
ing-the masses, abusing both
their privileges and public
trust. Supported by persons.
who would believe without
question what is said and done
by those in power who take
advantage of such an unjust
system has been directly
responsible for some of the
worst atrocities in modern
times. Just look at the Red
Tide that swept through China
under Mao Tse-tung when
millions were killed when pro-
moting an ideology that could-
n't be questioned.
Efforts to eliminate, if not
control men, came out of the
ashes of the holocaust after
World War II. With a com-
mitment of "Never Again",
the new body called the Unit-
ed Nations,' formed in the
postwar era to unite the
nations of the world, con-
ceived a document to prevent
such world disorders and dis-
asters in an effort to save
mankind from itself. That doc-
ument was named "The Uni-
versal Declaration of Human
Rights!" One of the most fun-
damental provisions of the
Declaration to promote world
peace and understanding is
the one of freedom of expres-
sion. Anyone has the right to
express their opinion against
any institution or government
without fear or favour.
Whether or not you like what
was being said, doesn't give
you the right to prevent what
was being said. You cannot
punish someone for what is
going on in their head!
So important was this pro-
vision of the Declaration, that
many countries, including the
Bahamas, has adopted it as a
part of their Constitution or
the supreme authority of that
country. With Freedom of
Expression enshrined in the
Constitution, democracy will
flourish in that country. Any
effort by any authority or
institution to limit or curtail
such protection must be met
with a determined vigilance.
This is something that under
any circumstances must never
be compromised. Journalists,
members of the Opposition
and the average citizen must
be afforded the right to criti-
cise the government of the
day or any institution in his'
- Regrettably, too many lead-
ers have blatantly and per-
versely disregarded this criti-
cal provision of the Declara-
tion by penalising and crimi-
nalising those who try to crit-
icise or promote an opinion
contrary to the status quo.
Journalists and persons who
dared to speak out against the
government soon discovered
that there was a high price
and in some cases the ultimate
price to pay for exercising this
basic human right.
The classic case in the
Bahamas is that of Lionel
Dorsett who was dragged
before the courts and charged
with the offence of "criminal
libel." For having made a
statement questioning the
integrity of Prime Minister
Lynden Pindling, he was
threatened with seven years
imprisonment without the
possibility of parole.
The 1991 Election Petition
Act forbidding the Bahamas
to discuss or broadcast
Bahamian political opinion
from abroad was another
gross and blatant violation of
the Bahamian Constitution by
the government of the day in
its evil attempt to prevent per-
sons from freely expressing
Recently, in Cuba, a neigh-
bour of the Bahamas, some
journalists were given as many
as 30 years in prison for pub-
lications contrary to the estab-
lishment. This is so wrong and
it only serves as a tool of
intimidation and oppression..
How any country, including '
the Bahamas, could support a
country such as Cuba to serve
on the United Nations Human
Rights Council is beyond any .
In the Bahamas in recent
times, the Press has.been
under fire, especially the dai-

number one. When in opposi-
tion, Foreign Minister Fred
Mitchell had nothing but
praises for The Tribune. He
indicated that The Tribune
was a true friend of the PLP.
Now, along with Senator
Philip Galanis, PLP Chairman
Raynard Rigby and others,
The Tribune is under attack
to the extent that freedom of
expression in the Bahamas is
now being questioned. To
make matters worse, they are
demanding not only the revo-
cation of the Work Permit of
the Managing Editor, John -
Marquis, but his expulsion
from the Bahamas as well. It
will be a dark day for the
Bahamas should this despica-
ble act come to pass and the

The Birth of an Iceberg
Icebergs start out as snow. Snow that falls
in places where it stays cold all year long
t p[i Year after year. snow piles
up. As more and more
snow accumulates. it turns
Now the snow has become
a glacier. Gravity and the immense weight
of a glacier causes it to flow outward and
downward like a river of snow and ice.
When a glacier comes to a large body of
water, pieces of it will calve, or break off.
These glacier pieces are called icebergs.

Demonstrations in favour of
bringing in the option of cor-
poral punishment as a penalty
for rape. Now attorney gener-
al, but then co-chair of the
Citizens for a Better Bahamas
Committee Allyson Maynard-
Gibson, brought together
hundreds of Bahamians who
felt strongly that not enough
was being done to deter
rapists, or give women incen-
I lives to report them in light
of steadily increasing rape
rates over previous years. Mrs
Maynard-Gibson and co-chair
Mrs Janet Bostwick
"favoured the cat" that is,
the cat-o-nine tails, as punish-
ment for rape. Currently, the
situation remains that "the
cat" is on the books in the
Bahamas, but is not applied
as a sentence.
M ABOVE: TO THE POINT:
Mrs Janet Bostwick, co-chairman of
CBB emphatically urged Bahami-
ans to inform their political repre-
sentatives that they want judges to
be able to punish.
LEFT: UNITED Against
Rape: As co-chairman of the Con-
cerned Citizens for a Better
Bahamas (CBB), Allyson Maynard-
Gibson (holding placard) headed
the historic march on Wednesday
April 4,1984 demanding heavier
penalties for rapists.
A GROUNDSWELL of support: Despite the pleas by Mrs Janet Boswick MP (pictured front,
centre) that others did not join her due to the risk of arrest, the number of people marching with her
along East Street in the early part of the morning towards parliament grew. The popular support for
the amendment to the law was substantial.
A MASS MOVEMENT: later that day the anti-rape protesters congregated at the South-
ern recreation ground, waving placards. The issue brought Bahamians from all sectors of society
together in the biggest demonstration to take place in Nassau in years.

N By FRANKLIN G FERGUSON
ONCE there was a greater Bahamas and per-
haps, in our own lifetime, the Bahamas will be
greater again. Up to 1838, the Turks and Caicos
Islands were a part of the Bahamas.
They were represented by Horatio N. Chipman
and John McIntosh, who in 1836 petitioned the
House of Assembly in Nassau claiming the
nation, with salt as one of its major industries, was
being treated poorly by the then government
The Turks and Caicos were annexed to
Jamaica in 1847, then, after that country's inde-
pendence in 1962, the Turks and Caicos had an
association with the Bahamas for over a decade
until it became a British Crown Colony.
And, on August 9th, 2006, Turks and Caicos
swore in its first Premier, Dr Michael E Misick.
Special guests at the occasion included Dr Den-
zil L Douglas, Prime Minister of St Kitts & Nevis
and Chairman of CARICOM.

ing of the Caribbean Volleyball Cham-
The presentation was made on Friday
in the office of BOA president Arlington
Butler as the championship's opening on
Sunday draws closer and the federation
aims for its projected target of $200,000.
"We are pleased to be able to assist
the volleyball federation in bringing
about this tournament, which we are
'pleased they brought here because this
will not only provide an opportunity for
our players to improve their skills, but it
will be a worthwhile tournament for the
Bahamian people to watch," Butler
"For that reason, we have made a pre-
'sentation to the volleyball federation,
which we normally do for these various
functions. We are indeed happy that you
will be able to put this on."
Federation president Don Cornish said
every step they make in putting a dent in
their projected expenditure is progress.
"Obviously starting very late didn't
help us, so we are a little ways off from
meeting our financial obligations," Cor-
nish revealed. "But we are very pleased
that the Olympic Association is providing
us with some of that support."
Cornish said they are still appealing to
corporate Bahamas to come forth and
make their financial contribution and for
the Bahamian people to come out and
view the championships that start on Sun-
day night at the Kendal Isaacs Gym so
they can meet their obligations when they
are concluded on Sunday, August 26.

ONE of the most difficult tasks of
hosting an event like the Caribbean Vol-

that everybody is properly accredited.
Renee 'Sunshine' Curry has been giv-
en that responsibility by the Bahamas
Volleyball Federation and she noted
that it's a job that has kept.her standing
on her feet.
"Basically, we've been having people
coming out in droves to be accredited,"
said Curry, who took a break from pho-

While Curry has had to photograph
the Bahamian teams, dignitaries and

"Even though we will be at the hotel
when they reach, we want to make sure
that we have everything set up for
them," said Curry, about the processing
of the visiting teams.
As for the local personnel to be
processed, Curry said she's at the gym
almost all day and even through the
evening taking their photographs as
they show up.
Up to the time of the interview, Cur-
ry said she had already processed 250

probably have to wait is on the lihe out-
side and that's just because we can only
accommodate one at'a time in the

The Theory of Probabilities
Both sides vulnerable.
South West North East
3 NT Pass Pass Pass
Opening lead jack of spades.
Bridge is a game of probabilities.
You make a certain bid because you
think it has a better chance to suc-
ceed than any other bid. You make a
certain play because you think it is
more likely to work than any other
But a probability, by definition,
is not a certainty. All you can do in
bridge is rely on the percentages and
hope for the best. You may be wrong
in a particular case if you follow the
percentages, but in the long run
you'll be right more often than
All of which leads us to this deal,
v.hich is strictly a matter of percent-
ages. Let's say you win the spade
lead with the king and play the king
of hearts. West takes the ace and
returns a spade, which you win with
You have eight certain tricks and
two ways to try for a ninth. You can
enter dummy with a diamond and
take a club finesse. If the jack wins,
you are home free. You have about a
50-50 chance of making the contract
this way, but in the actual deal this
approach would fail.
The alternate line of play is to
cash the A-K of clubs and continue
with the jack. This method will suc-
ceed if the clubs are divided 3-3 or if
either the queen or ten falls as the A-
K are led. The diamond king pro-
vides the entry to dummy if the nine
of clubs becomes a trick.
Some knowledge of percentages
is required to know which of the two
lines of play has the greater chance.
The second approach is much
better. The clubs will break 3-3 about
36 percent of the time, while a
singleton or doubleton queen or ten
will occur in approximately one deal
out of three.
The combined chance of finding
the clubs 3-3 or otherwise favorably
divided comes to about 70 percent -
20 percent better than the finesse.
Playing the A-K-J of clubs is there-
fore the superior -line of play, and
succeeds in the actual deal.

Two American amateurs
reached this tricky position
during a game in Ohio in 1993.
Black (to play) is a pawn down,
but has plenty of compensation
with all his pieces poised to
invade the white defences. He
has to be careful, though, since
White's own rook and knight
are entrenched deep in black
territory. Black narrowed down
his selection to Qd2 and Nd2,
not realising that one move
wins while the other loses.
Unable to decide between
them, he mentally tossed a
coin, and made the wrong
choice. Can you do better, and
demonstrate which move
scores the point and which is a
ARIES Mar 21/Apr 20
Overindulging in all areas of your life
is not a healthy way to live, Aries.
Rethink your personal goals and
streamline so you're not being pulled
into too many directions.
TAURUS Apr 21/May 21
You want to support a friend,
Taurus, but you just don't agree
with this person's motives. Don't
get involved in the situation; you'll
regret it later.
GEMINI May 22/Jun 21
Someone in the family has stepped
on your toes,'Gemini. Rather than
lash out, keep your feelings to
yourself and be the bigger persoh
in this situation.
CANCER Jun 22/Jul'22
You've put all your eggs in one bas-
ket, Cancer, and now that things
haven't worked out, you're left won-
dering what to do. Family members
won't let you down.
LEO Jul 23/Aug 23,
Watch how much you spend this
week, Leo. You could go overboard
if you're not paying attention.
Better leave the credit at home and
use cash instead.
VIRGO Aug 24/Sept 22
If you don't make a move soon in your
love life, you're going to miss the
opportunity, Virgo. Stop looking for
the perfect Mr. or Ms. Right. Rather,
look outside your comfort zone.
LIBRA Sept 23/Oct 23
Now is not the time to make rash
career decisions, Libra. You have too
many responsibilities and kills com-
ing in. Even though yourjob may not
appeal to you anymore, stick with it.'
SCORPIO Oct 24/Nov 22,- '
Normally a go-getter, Scorpio, you're
ready to throw in the towel in regards
to a project that isn't working out.
Don't give up, however;, you'll find
SAGITTARIUS Nov 23/Dec 2l
Stop being so generous to others, atd'
start concentrating on your immedi-
ate family, Sagittarius. They're in
need of your love and attention.
,Quality family time is key.
CAPRICORN Dec 22/Jan 210
Your loye life is a mess, Capricori."
You can't seem to get along with ydur
partner no matter what you do. Instead
of butting heads, sit down and talk
camly and rationally.
AQUARIUS Jan 21/Feb 18
Stbp being argumentative, Aquarius:
Those around you will grow tired pf
hearing how you're always, right:
Accept that someone else's opinion
might be valid.
PISCES Feb 19/Mar 20
Recuperation from an injury or illness
will take time, Pisces. Don't try to do
it all now. You'll have plenty of time
to catch up in the weeks to come.
