The US is trying to promote
an "international crusade"
against Cuba and wants the
Bahamas and the rest of the
Caribbean to join, according to
Cuban Ambassador to the
Bahamas Felix Wilson.
However, Mr Wilson said he
has faith that the Bahamas gov-
ernment will "do what the
Bahamian people want them to
do," and is mature enough to
know where it stands on the
His emphatic statements
came in response to requests by
the US Assistant Secretary of
Western Hemisphere Affairs
Thomas A Shannon at a press
conference with Caribbean and
South American journalists in
Washington on August 23.
Shannon called on the inter-
national community to show
"solidarity" with the Cuban
people and "provide resources
that could help develop a polit-
ical space inside Cuba".
Referring to the recent poor
health of the Cuban president,
Mr Shannon said it was a "very
propitious moment" for the US
and the international commu-
nity to "talk aloud" about the
future of Cuba.
"What we're looking for is a
political opening in Cuba that
begins to create conditions that
would allow a democratic tran-
sition to take place," said Mr
"We kind of sketched out
some of the basic components
of that, such as releasing politi-
cal prisoners, respecting human
rights, allowing the creation of
independent organizations and
creating mechanisms and path-
ways towards free and fair elec-
"It is about sending clear
messages to the Cuban people
about the willingness to help
Cuba move through this tran-
sition period," he said.
Responding to the comments,
veteranjournalist and politician
and one-time Bahamian
Ambassador to Cuba Sir
Arthur Foulkes said: "I don't
believe that the Bahamas
should interfere in the internal
affairs of the Cuban people, and
I don't believe that the US

the US shouldn't engage Cuba

Sir Arthur said the best way
to encourage political and eco-
nomic liberalisation is for the
US to abandon the embargo
described Shannon's statements
and others like it as "very
opportunistic at this time,"
adding that the US is "taking
advantage of the illness of the
president to make public what
everybody knows and that they
have been making public for
such a long time that the

This was the scene on Friday at the Lynden Pindling International Airport, where passengers coming into the capital described the
wait for the their luggage as both "frustrating and upsetting". Passengers arriving on yesterday's 11am US Airways flight from Char-

Airport officials said the delays were
attributed to both a broken baggage
carousel and the massive amounts of bag-
gage LPIA receives at this time of year.
A porter told The Tribune that there
is normally a problem with the carousels.
"Only one is working today and last
week for a few hours none were working.
There are two or three planes at a time
that have to wait to unload the bags
because only one belt works.
"Sometimes passengers have to wait up
to 45 minutes one hour to get their bags.

to push the bags through the hole," he

Authority, Joseph Reckley, said that while

'dictate' to investors
about signals sent by
Port Authority, debate
BY DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport Reporter
to comments made at a town
meeting on the Grand Bahama
Port Authority, Tourism Minis-
ter Obie Wilchcombe said he
does not think it is wise for the
government to dictate to
investors about who they
appoint to lead their companies.
He warned that Bahamians
must be very careful about the
message they are sending to
investors on Grand Bahama
and in the rest of the country
Mr Wilchcombe was in
Grand Bahama on Thursday.
He said some of the views
expressed on the Grand
Bahama Port Authority can
have very damaging effects.
During a live radio broadcast
town meeting, Dr Doswell
Coakley called on government
to immediately institute a com-
mission of inquiry into the
affairs of the Grand Bahama
PLP Senator Philip Galanis
also called for government to
look more closely at the Port
Authority and with greater
scrutiny on any and all appoint-
ments to executive management
The government, members of
the opposition, and Port
Authority executives were crit-
icised by attorney Fred Smith
for their absence at the town
.meeting, which sought to ques-
tion the various recent changes
at the Port Authority.
Mr Wilchcombe said: "When
I listened to some of what I've
been hearing, I wondered, is
that the message you want to
send to a community of
investors, that you want the
government to dictate the
course of their leadership?
"Do I tell Sol Kerzner tomor-
row who should be his general
"Should I tell others who
should be leading their organi-
sations, or should I prepare
Bahamians to be ready for
when the opportunity presents
itself, and then to be able to
present an authoritative argu-
ment that Bahamians are pre-
pared?" he asked.
Mr Galanis has questioned
whether it was appropriate for
Hannes Babak to head the Port
Authority given his business
interest on the island.
Mr Babak, who was appoint-
ed Port Authority chairman on
June 1, has stepped down as
CEO at his businesses in
Mr Wilchcombe said the Port
plays a great role throughout
Grand Bahama. He-believes
that Bahamians must very care-
ful in the message they are
sending to investors.
"I remember where I had a
conversation with Edward St
George and I. said 'why don't
we have any Grand Bahamians
on the board in the Port
Authority, why can't Grand
Bahamians play a role there?'
He asked me to name one and
it created a problem for me, tell
you the truth.
Obie Wilchcombe, minister of tourism, addresses Rotarians earlier this week
"I wondered about that. And
that is why when you hear the
cry today about even investors
who bring in their managers,
whether it Sol Kerzner or Bob-
by Ginn, the reality is are we
ready? Have we prepared?"
Mr Wilchcombe recalled a
quote from the bust of Winston
Churchill that sat in the square
of downtown Freeport, which
reads: "If we quarrel about the
past and the present we have
lost the future."
"I think that the time has
come to plan for our young peo-
ple to be a part of what the
country is doing. We must
ensure that the educational sys-
tem meets the reality.
"We must prepare young
people today. We now have
opportunity today, because two
or three year from now we are
going to need more and more
qualified Bahamians and more
young Bahamians," he said.
The Ministry of Education
has announced a new strategy
to encourage private school
tactics in the public school sys-
Education Minister Alfred
Sears explained that the strat-
egy includes the establishment.
of a National Training Insti-
tute to train administrators,
the expansion of the Extend-
ed Learning Programme to
assist student comprehension,
a focus on adult education
and the implementation of a

ter of Works and Utilities,

The tours were part of a
series of visits to various
islands in response to calls for
repairs and expansions to
schools around the Bahamas.
In total the government has
spent more than $6 million on
school repairs, expansion, and
hurricane relief in Abaco
The tour began in Sandy

signed and construction was
already underway for expan-
The other schools visited
included Central Abaco Pri-
mary, Abaco Central High,
and Crossing Rock School.
Along with public schools,
Mr Sears visited private,
schools including the Every
Child Counts (ECC) learning.
The school, like others vis-
ited by the minister, was
undergoing extensive expan-
sion -but appeared to be well
ahead of public schools in
construction and is ready to
receive students into the new
building in September.
Under the umbrella of the
Catholic council, the school
has free land, but the rest of
the funds for building and
running the special needs
school come from the com-
munity and enthusiastic
The school raises $230,000
per year to keep running and
relies heavily on donations
from the public.
As a result of the public's
investment in the school, the
facilities are painted, the new
building is fireproof, the walls
are varnished to prevent light
damage, new ramps are
installed and a.wide range of
other advancements 'hve
Sears said of the school,
"ECC does not get a penny
from the government, yet they
are a flourishing school
because they have the atten-
tion of the community and
people see the need for their
children to be properly edu-
He went on to say that pub-
lic schools need public atten-
tion if they are to become the
state-of-the-arts schools that
Bahamian students deserve.

FREEPORT Tourism Min-
ister Obie Wilchcombe revealed
that plans are underway for the
total re-branding of the Grand
Bahama in an effort to make
it a destination that is unrivalled
in the Caribbean.
Mr Wilchcombe said that at
the moment, the lack of brands
on Grand Bahama is signifi-
cantly impacting the island's
"We have one of the leading
marketing gurus from the US
who has been working with us
in developing a plan for the re-
branding of Grand Bahama,"
Mr Wilchcombe told members
of the Rotary Club on Thurs-
"We must do that and money
must be spent in doing that so
that Grand Bahama will have

The minister said he believes
that once"complete..Bobby Gin-
n's project in West End will pro-
pel tourism on Grand Bahama
the way that Atlantis has done
for Paradise Island, New Prov-
idence, and the Bahamas.
"Sol Kerzner whether we
like it or not, you can criticise
him all you want, but the truth
of the matter is that Kerzner
has helped us revitalise the

tourism no one really knew
about Grand Bahama. I can tell
you today that we have many
people at present interested in
being in Grand Bahama, and
that was not the case many
That's the case now because
we have a big fish Bobby
Ginn is a big fish," the minis-
Last December, the govern-
ment signed a heads of agree-
ment with the Ginn Group for
the development of a $3.7 bil-
lion mixed-use resort invest-
ment in west Grand Bahama.
Ginn has cleared a large por-
Stion of the 2,000 acres of land in
West End in preparation for
first phase of construction.
Mgrilchcombe said thji
Bobby Ginn will be able to
attract large numbers of people
to Grand Bahama.
"The boom-bust year of
Grand Bahama tourismis near
an end in my view. I say that
with a high level of confidence
because Grand Bahama will
have a brand and a destination,
perhaps unequalled to anything
in the Caribbean," he said.
"I think we've had a boom-
bust period in Grand Bahama
because we didn't get brands -
you need brands. You are not
going to build a tourism indus-
try just by putting aname on a
property it has to niea some-
thing and you have to be able to
tapinto the databases that exists
with these major companies,
like Bobby Ginn.
"Bobby Ginn comes in with a

Mr Wilchcombe' also men-
.tioned that several other pro-
jects are already in the
advanced stages in west Grand
Bahama, such as the Blue Mar-
lin Condominium project in
Bootle Bay, Seaward in Dead-
man's Reef, the Bootle Bay
Beach project, and the multi-
million dollar expansion df Old
.He also assured that both
parties in the'Royal Oasis
Resort sale are working toward
closure within the next 40 days
- after which full details relating
to the operations of the hotel
and the casino will be disclosed.
The investors, said Mr Wilch-
combe, have promised the cre-
ation of a new experience
encompassing the International
Ba-izar and G'ombay Park.
-: llddonall), he pointed out
that a groundbreaking is set to
take place by investor Preben
Olsen for construction of a con-
do-hotel near Port Lucaya.
And, approval has also been
given to the construction of
another 250-condo unit for
Lucaya, Mr Wilchcombe said.
He stressed that Grand
Bahama, which has just about
3,000 hotel rooms, needs 7,000
to 10,000 rooms in the next
decade to be competitive.
"When Grand Bahama is
able to welcome three million
tourists a year, then we are on
our way. But, right now we are
still under one million.
"We got up to a one million
in 1992, but we haven't been
back there. But, you can't talk
about a sustainable industry
without the inventory that has a
brand and the marketing."
"So what is happening now
is we are looking to ensure that
the players over here are strong.
That is why it (Royal Oasis) has
taken longer than we wanted to
take because we have.had three
or four real good players at the
table and we are still talking to
everybody," he said.

Michael Johnson says he has
had no help from police in his
two-month fight to bring the
driver of a bus that struck him
He says that he has been try-
ing to get justice since early
June but claims that instead,
he has been harassed for unre-
lated matters. Mr Johnson was
walking his bike up Marlbor-
ough Street when, he says, he
was hit by a speeding bus com-
ing down Baillou Hill Road.
His bicycle was totalled.
Uninjured but shaken, he
addressed a policeman who he
claims watched the entire inci-
dent from the corner.
"The officer told me that I
should not have been walking in
the street, even though I was
on the furthest edge of the road,
and the only space there was
for my bike and I," he said.
As a paper vendor, Mr John-
son requires his bicycle to earn
a living and raise his two chil-
dren. He filed a complaint to
the police and gave them a bus
number, and the station asked
him to get an estimate of the
cost of his bicycle.
While finding an estimate, Mr
Johnson said he had to borrow
another bike to continue sell-
ing his papers although with
much more difficulty as the bike
was not suited to his work.
Mr Johnson said he returned
to the station with an estimate
and was asked to go to another
branch, and once there, he was
sent back to the first.
Frustrated, Mr Johnson went
to the Police Headquarters and
was told by officers there that
he needed to provide a bicycle
license for his borrowed bike,
Having no choice but to fol-
low directions, Mr Johnson said
he went to get the information
from his friend, who said he
could not supply it right away.
Mr Johnson claims that when
he arrived again at the station to
continue filing his complaint,
he was threatened with jail for
possessing a bicycle without a
"I was hit by a bus and all
they want to do is make me run
around. I'm a busy man and I
have to spend all this time look-
ing for attention from the
police," he said.
Mr Johnson's biggest griev-
ance is that he thought Police
Headquarters would help him
in his dealings with thelocal sta-
tion he visited but instead, he
was turned away with a threat
Upon hearing of the matter
last night, police press liaison
officer Inspector Walter Evans
immediately invited Mr John-
son to come see him at Police
Headquarters first thing Mon-
"I am not aware of the mat-
ter, but he can come and see
me and we will do everything
possible to see if the matter can
be resolved we have to serve
our customers," Mr Evans said.

Lessons on today's terrorism
ELEVEN SUSPECTS. were taken to court in
London this week, charged with involvement in
the plot to blow up several airliners over the
Atlantic. The foiling of their alleged conspiracy
will inevitably be scrutinized for what it reveals
about the changing character of the terrorist
threat five years after September 11.
Even though there is some uncertainty about
the scope of the plot and possible links to Al
Qaeda, there are important general lessons to be
It should be reassuring that the plotters were
not as well organized or as successful at keeping
their plans secret as the September 11 master-
minds and the suicidal terrorists who did their
bidding. If British and Pakistani officials are
correct, knowledge of the airline plot was dis-
seminated among scores of people. The con-
spirators failed to prevent a mole from infil-
trating their network. And they were careless
enough to permit US agencies to intercept their
communications and pass the intercepts on to
authorities in London.
If the scheme to use liquid explosives to blow
up the airliners was conceived or directed by top
Al Qaeda figures, as Pakistani intelligence has
claimed, then it seems obvious that Osama bin
Laden's lieutenants are less capable of carrying
out a complex terrorist spectacular than they
were before they lost their sanctuary and train-
ing camps in Afghanistan. Part of the explana-
tion for this reduced capability'may be the dif-
ficulty for Al Qaeda fugitives of coordinating
with self-starting volunteers, such as the 22
British Muslims who have either been charged
or are in police custody now in London.
Also, the isolation and atomization of Al
Qaeda leaders since the toppling of the Tal-
iban in Afganistan may have seriously com-
promised their ability to organize successful
operations like the 1998 bombings of US
embassies in East Africa, the 2000 attack on

EVERYONE knows Elmo: He's the furry, red'
"Sesame Street" monster with the high voice and
the relentlessly upbeat personality. He's the star
of "Elmo's World," a continuing "Sesame Street"
feature. His friends include Dorothy (a silent
goldfish), and a frequently befuddled fellow
named Mr. Noodle.
Then it turns out that Elmo and his falsetto
are the work of a,6-foot-tall black man, Kevin
Clash, a New Yorker in his 40s. Suddenly, com-
mon knowledge about who does what in the
world gets swept aside. And, at least momentar-

Interviewed by The New York Times this

love of puppets. Adults suggested that he go out-
side and play.

award for supporting him. His mother taught
him to sew. His father helped him build puppet

In an upcoming book, Clash writes that Elmo
was born when a "Sesame Street" colleague
tossed him a "shapeless, soft bundle of red," and
challenged him to make something. Well, look out
for flying red stuff; it might herald the creative
break of a lifetime.
Elmo seems an unlikely catalyst for public pol-
icy, but it pays to ask how other children could
have Clash's creative experiences.
Children often persist at what they love. And
even if they're weak on quadratic equations,
they'll have learned what hard work is and how to
do it. Similarly, the relentless drumbeat is true:
America needs more science, technology, math,
and engineering majors who will go on to careers
that help keep the country competitive. It's a les-
son that's so heavily flogged, one imagines drea-

the periodic table of elements.

with microscopes, experiments, and unanswered
questions. And while love can't be forced, more
sparks might fly if more boys and girls were to

LET me take you on a brief
stroll through history. First his-

one is armed with stories of the
past, if one is equipped with the
recollection of information from
the past, then they could speak
intelligently to a particular point
and maybe, just/maybe they
would not repeat the mistakes
of the past. At least they would
not have exposed their posteri-

History should record that

admitted that if he had put the
reins on the people around him,
maybe he would not have end-

The raw facts are that the min-

under his reign and the close
friends did whatever they
wished and they did it knowing
that their leader would not do
anything about it. The rest is
Fast-forward, today Perry
Gladstone Christie, who is obvi-
ously not a good student of his-
tory, finds himself in the same
predicament. Everywhere you
turn,' someone is alleging that
certain persons are getting kick-
backs, left right and centre.
Because some of the men, espe-
cially contractors, who have not
been accustomed to having big
money, cannot wait to brag
everywhere they go about their
new found fortune.
We can assume that Perry
Christie is innocent of any
wrong doing, but the number
of allegations about some of the
people around him are growing
by leaps and bounds. No one
seems to care because, if
rumour is to be believed, the
practice is so rampant. The per-
ception is that while the PLP is
in power some are going to get
whatever they can get their
greasy palms on, regardless of
who finds out. These are the
rumours that are flying around,
fast and furiously.
A student of history would,
therefore, recognize that what
went around is fast approach-

The uncompromising truth is

It is alleged that is if the

there is a meeting and survey
planned by Harvard University

same sex should enjoy the same
legal pleasure as a normal man

In a Bahamas where we
loosely say that we are a Chris-

itself as a Christian party,

The Deputy Prime Minister
Cynthia Mother Pratt, Fred
Mitchell, Minister of Foreign
Affairs, and MP for Fox Hill,
Ron Pinder, MP for Marathon,
Alfred Sears, Minister of Edu-
cation, Vincent Peet and, of
course, Perry Christie, must
state their position on same sex
marriage. I know that the peo-
ple of Fox Hill would be anx-
ious to hear what their MP's
position is, especially knowing
that Fox Hill is heavy on build-
ing the family.
Bahamians are talking. They
collectively are saying that
there seems to be a hidden
agenda with the PLP. It is obvi-
ous that certain criteria must
be in place to gain employment
with certain ministries. It is no
secret, but Bahamians gossip a
lot and nothing is out of
bounds. A minister's preference
should not be a yardstick by
which everyone else is mea-
In an effort to thwart the
"same sex marriage" train, Rev
Rex Major has planned an
event and I trust that Rev
Major leaves no stones
unturned at his service on
August 27 in Rawson's Square.
His attempt to bring attention
to this agenda that is being pur-
sued by a "hired group" to help
lobby the Bahamian people
toward "same sex marriages", is
very necessary and timely.
Everyone knows that Rex
Major is not a puppet, like
many other ministers of the
gospel. So we anticipate that
he will be shooting straight as
On another note, it is claimed
that the PLP is planning to set
themselves up to remain in
power forever. Seeing how Per-
ry Christie "gets off" about
being Prime Minister, the
rumour mongers claim he is
planning to make himself
"President for life". This is
being discussed among a spe-
cial group of cronies who usu-
ally cannot speak intelligently
about anything. This idea has
seemed to gather legs, because
it has surfaced more often than
Bahamians must not be
fooled by the naming of these
projects. PLP think people are
fools. That is why there is a
junkanoo rush out everywhere.
Is that why there is a "block
party" closing down streets in
almost every constituency,
under the disguise of Urban
Renewal? The powerful United
States would not, even though
they are the richest country in
the world, throw a party in Lib-
erty City, Harlem, Watts and
other ghetto areas of the Unit-

out of the treasury and throws a

solution, was allowed to "drag

expensive and unreliable, due
to adverse weather conditions
and mechanical failures.

of reverse osmosis water is
cheaper than the cost of barging
and is not subject to weather

would stop vandalism and
decrease the high upkeep costs
at the schools.
But some of those who spoke
to The Tribune linked the
severity of the vandalism to the
lack of facilities and upkeep at
some schools. Vandalism was
more severe in schools that do
not provide a full range of facil-
ities, they said. One school for
more than 700 students lacked
playing fields, for example.

WHEN a South American
volcano began blowing its top
last week, people living on its
slopes were not the only ones
to get excited. There were
tremors of anticipation in Nas-
They say it's an ill-wind that
blows no-one any good. Well,
the same goes for volcanoes.
While those living under the
crater are unlikely to be too
pleased, writers of volcano
books glow brighter than a
magma chamber when the
ground starts rumbling.
Nassau-based author James
Frew, whose novel Volcano
Santorini harks back to one
of the greatest volcanic cata-
strophes of all time, is not
alone in welcoming the spec-
tacle of flying sparks, flowing
lava and subterranean con-
vulsions...so long as no-one
gets hurt, of course.
Stephen Lay, a Nassau-
based magazine editor who is
also director of US-based Epi-
center Press, said: "One real-
ly big volcanic explosion could
lead us to order 10,000 more
copies of,our book on Mount
St Helen's. There's nothing
like a major eruption to stim-
ulate interest and therefore
Epicenter's book, Echoes of
Fury by Frank Parchman, is a
riveting account of the 1980
eruption of Mount St Helen's
and the lives it changed for-
Described by an online
reviewer as "scary, jolting and
gripping", the book is the true
story of the eruption and its
aftermath with specific
emphasis on the human toll.
Mr Lay said: "The book has
been a good seller since it
appeared in 2004, but it really
needs another eruption of the
volcano to liven things up."
Although there is a solid
core of volcano buffs who will
always buy books like Echoes
of Fury and Volcano Santori-
ni, it takes a major news event
from a glowing peak to really
set the bookshop tills ringing.
Mr Frew, 86, a former
senior US officer who was also
a commercial airline pilot,
published his book two years
ago. It's a thriller in which
Volcano Santorini and the
eruption that wiped out
Mayan civilisation feature
Mr Frew, who is also an

Senior Sports Reporter
AT LEAST the Bahamas men's
national team can say at the end of
the XI Caribbean Volleyball
Championships that they have
matured as a team.
When the team got started last
Sunday night, they were just trying
to find themselves. By Thursday
when they played Barbados, they
showed.that they have arrived.
Down two sets in the marquee
men's game of day five, the
Bahamas rode the momentum of
the cheering fans inside the Kendal
Isaacs Gymnasium as they forced a
But in the end, it was Barbados'
experience that prevailed and they
proved why they are indeed the
defending champions ofthe tour-
nament, remaining undefeated at'
3-0 in Pool A.
The Bahamas dropped to 0-3
and will now have to prepare to
play for the seventh or eight spot
today at 11:30 am against the US
Virgin Islands, who finished win-
less as well in Pool B.
"We gave it our all. In the lock-
er room, it was said that we should
give it our all," said Renaldo
Knowles, who led the team's offen-
sive attack. "Everyone had heart.
Everyone played with heart.
Everyone did what they had to
Knowles -.md n %~ a, atough-loss,
but they should not hold their
heads down in shame because they
played as well as expected having
not had the opportunity to get any
exposure before the tournament.
Head coach Joey Demeritte said
the players went out and put it all
on the line as they gave Barbados
the fits like they have done so
many times before.
"Our lack of inexperience this
time really did us in," Demeritte
reflected. "I'm reallyjproud of the
way the guys played. They went
out and left it all out on the court."
Demeritte is of the opinion that,
based on the way they played, if
the team can stay together, he's
confident that, in two to,three
years, they should emerge as
For now, Barbados is the
defending champions and they
played that way.
Renier Grace powered down 18
kills and Fabian Cox added 16.
Dale Addison finished with four
block shots and Elwin Oxley
chipped in with two.
For the Bahamas, Renaldo
Knowles had a tournament high
22 kills and Prince Wilson finished
with 13 to post the best 1-2 combo
so far in the tournament. Wilson
also had four blocks and Romel
Lightbourn added three.
After losing two close encoun-
ters in the first two sets, the
Bahamas would trade the lead
with the Bajans throughout the
third before they took a 25-24 lead
on a Knowles' spike.
After a side out, the Bahamas
got the ball back on a Wilson cross
court spike and on his serve, Bar-
bados hit-the ball long to force a

momentum over to the fourth set

But Barbados refused to die as
Renier Grace landed a series of
spikes to cut their deficit to 13-12.
However, with Knowles spiking
and Romel Lightbourne blocking,
the Bahamas would take a 16-14
lead. Before they knew it, they
were leading 22-18 with Wayne
Johnson at the service line.
The Bahamas eventually won
the set as Wilson put the icing on
the cake with his spike.
While Knowles and Wilson
came through offensively, the
Bahamas got some big defensive
plays from Byron Ferguson II,
Romel Lightbourn and Arison
Wilson, along with John Rolle and
Muller Petit off the bench.
Climbing_ out of their slump,
Barbados took advantage of the
errors that the Bahamas started to
make at the service line and at the
net to take an early 6-4 lead and

ALTHOUGH the conditions were
extremely cold yesterday, sprinter Deb-
bie Ferguson-McKenzie was heated up
enough to go out and run two consecu-
tive races at the Memorial Van Damme
meet yesterday in Brussels.
Ferguson-Williams, the lone Bahami-
an competing at the meet, ran 11.24 sec-
onds, the same time as American
Stephanie Durst, but she had to settle
for fourth place,
Her time was well off her season's
best of 11.06 and her personal best of
Jamaican Sherone Simpson won the
race in 10.95 with American Me'Lisa
Barber second in 11.10 and Durst third.
About a hour later, Ferguson-
Williams was back on the track where
she posted a second place finish in the
200 in 22.93. Kim Gevaert of Bulgaria
won the race in 22.68 and.Russian
Yuliya Gushchina was third in 23.24.
Ferguson-McKenzie's time was shy
of her season's best of 22.40 and her
personal best of 22.19.

ed in the double, noticeably missing
were quarter-milers Tonique Williams-

American Sanya Richards stayed
undefeated, wininng the women's 400

Jamaican Novlerie Williams was sec-
ond in 51.02 and Bulgarian Vanya Stam-
bolova came in third in 51.13.
Williams-Darling and Amertil were
not entered in the race.
Brown, who hasn't competed since
June 3 when he ran in his only meet,
said lie's disappointed that he's not
entered in the Golden League because
he would have liked to earn some of the
cash being offered.
"With the meets going on and I'm not
involved, I feel kind of disappointed," he
stressed. "But it ain't much I can do. I
just have to take it as it comes.
"I just have to hope that I have a bet-
ter year next year."
After being told by his manager that
he couldn't get into any of the meets
that have been taking place, Brown said
he finally got a call inviting him back
to Europe next weekend to compete in
Berlin at the Golden League.
"It ain't much that I can do (if they
don't want me in their meets). I just
have to wait until I can get in another
meet," he insisted. "I've still been train-

Bahamas in three straight sets
on Thursday night.
The Bajans held off the
in the marquee women's game
at the Kendal Isaacs Gymnasi-

top of the standings at 4-0 -
and they have not lost ai set yet.
"When the Bahamian girls

very confident and said they
were ready for us," said Bar-
bados' head coach Paul Payne.
"But we were ready for them
Coming off their sweep over
Trinidad & Tobago the night
before, Barbados rode the 1-2
hitting attack of Janelle Chase
and Aviara'Brown as they
came up with the big plays at
the right to seal the deal.
Chase had ten kills and
Brown added eight. Brown and
Juan Bovell also produced
three block shots apiece.
The Bahamas got 10 kills
from Katrina Johnson and
another five from Kelsie John-
son, who boosted her lead for
the best spiker award.
Johnson, who is also.on top
of the leaderboard for the best
blocker, posted six in that cat-

"We still have some more
volleyball to play, so hopefully
we can stay tough as we move

get the gold or silver, but we
don't want to let the bronze
slip away too."
The Bahamas will play its
final game in the round robin
segment of the tournament
tonight at 7pm against the US
"At least we got a chance to
see them play," said Gray, not-

incentive to keep their hopes
alive for a medal.

Opening lead jack of clubs.
Suppose, just as an academic
proposition and independent of the
deal shown, you had to make three
tricks in a suit where dummy held J-
x-x and you, as declarer, held A-K-9.
There would be only two practical
ways to handle this combination.
One would be to cash the A-K. If
either opponent had the singleton or
doubleton queen, you would fulfill
The other way would be to lead, ,
low from dummy and, if the. next
player followed low, finesse the nine.
This method of play would succeed
if your right-hand opponent had both
the ien and the queen.
The mathematics of the situation
dictate that it is better to try the dou-
ble finesse than to cash the A-K.
Playing the A-K will drop the queen
in only one deal out of 10, while the
double finesse will succeed in one
deal out of four.
Jean Besse, Swiss star, played this
hand in a match against Italy in the
European Championship some years
ago. He finessed the club lead, losing
to East's king, and got a club return.
After drawing two rounds of trumps,
he cashed the king and ace of hearts
and trumped a heart.
Next he ruffed a club, West show-
ing out, and he was then faced with
the proposition of making all three
diamond tricks with the combination
He led a low diamond from
dummy, and East played the four.
Besse thereupon played the ace, con-
tinued with the king, caught the
queen and so made the slam.
Why did Besse abandon the per-
centage play? The answer is that he
knew the double finesse could not
succeed in this deal and that the only
chance he had was to drop the dou-
During the play, Besse had
learned that East started with two
spades, three hearts and six clubs.
IHnce, East could not possibly have
the Q-10-4 of diamonds (which
would give him 14 cards). The only
hope, therefore, was that East had
started with the Q-4 doubleton.

ARIES Mar 21/Apr 20
Don't worry .about bad news you'll
receive this week, Aries. It's more of a
misunderstanding than anything else.
Ignore the dire warnings and proceed
with your plans.
TAURUS Apr 21/May 21,
Advice you'll receive from a friefid
can't be trusted, Taurus. This person
is not qualified to speak about cer-,
tain topics, and' especially not the.
one you have concerns about.
GEMINI May 22/Jun 21
A surprise. guest knocks on your
door in the days to come, Gemini.
Be warm and accommodating even
though it's an imposition. The visit
will be a short one.
CANCER Jun 22/Jul 22
A positive attitude' will help you
tackle a project more easily than a
negative one will, Cancer. Cast your
doubts aside that you'll never get the
job done and get to it.
LEO Jul 23/Aug 23
Putting your trustin a family mem-
ber's hands will end with surprising
results, Leo. You can't avoid the sit-
uation, so there's no point worrying
about it in advance.
VIRGO Aug 24/Sept 22
This is a critical time at work, so be
on your best behavior, Virgo, or you
may be passed up for a promotion.,
Don't sabotage what you've worked.
.so hard to attain.
LIBRA Sept 23/Oct 23
A move that you made a few months
ago is not panning out. Admit defeat
and cut your losses. Don't worry,
friends and family will support you
until you're back on your feet.
SCORPIO Oct 24/Nov 22
A promotion at work has resulted in
more assignments on your plate.,
While you enjoy the status, you
didn't expect so many extta responsi-
bilities. Speak up if you need help.
SAGMITARIUS Nov 23/Dec 21
Several financial blunders left you in
the red at the end of last year. Make
a resolution this time around to be
more frugal with your purchases, or
the same results will ensue.
CAPRICORN Dec 22/Jan 20
A proposition has been made to you,
and you've accepted. Big changes are
in store in the weeks to come,
Capricorn, so hang on tight and enjoy
the bumpy ride.
AQUARIUS Jan 21/Feb 18
Now that things are stable on the
homefront, Aquarius, concentrate
on what you're going to do at
work. It just,may be time to seek
out a promotion.
PISCES Feb 19/Mar 20
After a year of hard work, consider
taking some time off for a much-
needed vacation, Pisces. You'll be'
glad you got a break.
