Victim's


family:


'Justice served'
I .ilJv GVJ Vl


By NATARIO MCKENZIE
THE family of Jamal Robins,
22, say they feel thai "justice
has been served" now that
Cordell Farrington has been
sentenced to death fo his mur-
der.
"The prosecution did a won-
derful job, I appreciate it for
my family and my sorn" Edward
Robins, father of the victim,
said yesterday.
"Justice was served today. I
am very happy andvery pleased
with the outcome," he said.
In her judgment, Senior Jus-
tice Anita Allen stated that,
having considered thc evidence
of the two psychiatrists who tes-
tified at the trial, she was satis-
fied that Farrington idid not, at
the time of the murder and does
not presently, suffer from
"diminished responsibility" or
any "serious psychiatric disor-
der."
"I am satisfied that, at the
time of the offence, he was able
to make the right choice, but
. made the wrong choice because
he did not cardethat it was
wrong. ---: '

Man to

receive

lashings

By NATARIO
McKENZIE
A MAN has been sen-
tenced to serve a substan-
tial term in prison and
ordered br a judge to
receive lashings with a rod
upon entry and departure
from jail after being con-
victed yesterday of burglary,
causing harm and the
attempted rape of an 83-
year-old woman.
A juryifonnd Altulus
Newbold guilty 11-1 on the
charges of burglary, causing
harm and attempted rape.
The offences are said to
have been committed on
July 3, 2004, at Orange
Creek, Cat Island.
The now 85-year-old vic-
tim told the court earlier this
week of how Newbold
broke into her home and
attempted to have inter-
course with her. However,
she grabbed his genitals and
"mashed" them, she said.
Newbold bit her in an
effort to be released,
escaped through the back
door ot her home and then
ran down the street, the
woman told the court.
After the verdicts were
handed down, Newbold told
the court: "I apologise for

was able to fully control his
impulses, but chose not to," Jus-
tice Allen stated in her judg-
ment.
"In the premise, I am satis-
fied beyond a reasonable doubt
that the appropriate sentence
in this case is death," she said.
The judgp also noted that,
with respect to the allegations
that Farrington was sexually
abused, she accepted that he
may have been sexually abused
by a male relative at some point
during his childhood, but was
sceptical of how genuine the
other allegations were.
She further pointed out that,
despite his attempt to paint a
bleak picture of his childhood,
Farrington had admitted to hav-
ing a loving relationship with
his maternal grandmother and a
good relationship with his sis-
ter Raquel.
"Having considered these
matters, I am of the view that,
for the most part, the allega-
tions of abuse and alleged sex-
ual experiences were fabricat-
ed or grossly exaggerated by' the
prisoner in an attempt to
manipulate and avoid respon-
sibility for what he did," the
judge said.
"In that premise, I do not
accept that his life was rough
and abusive and I do not
believe that the incident with a
male relative, if it happened,
might have had any influence
on his conduct in committing
this offence," Justice Allen stat-
ed.
After the sentencing yester-
day, Farrington's lawyer
Romona Farquharson told The
Tribune that she had received
. instructions from her client to
appeal the sentence.
Prosecutors said yesterday
that they do not intend to pur-
sue a trial into the deaths of the
four Grand Bahama schoolboys
Farrington is also accused of
killing until next year.
Deputy director of prosecu-
tions Cheryl Grant-Bethel,
Stephanie Pintard and Shirley
Deveaux appeared for the pros-
ecution yesterday.
On August 18, an eight man,
four woman jury unanimously
found Farrington guilty of the
July, 2002, murder of Jamal
Robins, whom he had met at
Sandilands Rehabilitation Cen-
tre the previous year.
The murder took place at an
apartment at Mallory Lane,
Freeport. Some of Robins'
remains were found in an;area
off the Grand Highway. Far-
rington led police to the loca-
tion.
At the trial, a pathologist
revealed that the victim had
died as a result of blunt force
trauma to the head.
Farrington is also accused of
murdering four Grand Bahama
schoolboys: Mackinson Colas,
12; Junior Reme, 11; DeAngelo
McKenzie, 13; and Desmond
Rolle, 14. The boys disappeared
between May and September,
2003.

MP resignation

reports hit peak


By KRYSTEL ROLLE
Several persons recently
"politically appointed" to the
Registrar General's Depart-
ment are allegedly working
without being paid.
Speaking with The Tribune,
John Pinder, president of
Bahamas Public Service Union
(BPSU), revealed that two
women contacted him to assist
them in getting their "just pay".
Mr Pinder reportedly con-
tacted the human resources
department on their behalf to
make inquiries into the com-
plaint.
According to the urion pres-
ident, the women, who have
been working for over a year,
are still waiting for their pay-
ments to be processed.
He claimed an additional 18
persons had been sent there by
a Cabinet minister, but they
were not processed properly so
the Department of Public Ser-
vices didn't have any informa-
tion on them.
As a result, they couldn't be
paid unless they had proper
application forms filled out or


something was authorised from
the Department of Public Ser-
vices for the treasury to make
payments.
Mr Pinder said these 18
employees were hired on a part-
time basis using the "delegat-
ed power rule", which allows
persons to be hired for 90 days
as part-time employees.
"But they weren't properly
hired because the department
of public service has to give the
approval on that, in order for
treasury to be able to make pay-
ments, and that didn't happen in
this case so these people just
went in to start work without
the proper process, so unless
the Department of Public Ser-
vice gives the okay they can't
be paid."
In the case of the two women,
Mr Pinder indicated that the
expiration date on their "con-
tract" was up so they should
automatically be established
employees.
After speaking to the human
resources officer, Mr Pinder

REPORTS that MPs Keny-
atta Gibson and Keod Smith
had resigned from their respec-
tive chairmanships hit a high
yesterday but remained uncon-
firmed.
Members of the public have
been calling for their resigna-
tions since the Cabinet Room
fist-fight scandal broke last
Monday.
Many cite this case as an
example of how the playing
field is not levelled between the
"average Bahamian" and per-
sons in positions of power,
pointing out that persons have
been fired from their jobs for
far less serious acts of miscon-
duct.
Two weeks ago the MPs,
after a heated exchange of
insulting words, were locked in
physical combat in the Cabinet
room. The scuffle occurred after
a meeting of government par-
liamentarians at the Cabinet
Office.
During the scuffle it was
reported that two windows were
smashed and the glass top of
the large mahogany table in the
Cabinet Room was broken.
It is understood that the dis-


pute had nothing to do with
government business, but was
an argument between the two
lawyers over the handling of the
sale of a house for the client of
one of them.
This week, reports have pro-,
liferated through the media and
Among politicians that the two
MPs were being strongly
encouraged to resign.
However, many, including
members of their party, the
PLP, believe their respective
resignations are not only
inevitable but long overdue.
The Tribune understands
that, earlier this week, Cabinet
Minister Vincent Peet asked
both Mr Gibson and Mr Smith
to attend a meeting with PLP
MPs and Cabinet ministers
where the fight was to be dis-
cussed along with some of the
more senior members of the
party.
However, Mr Gibson's col-
leagues were unable to contact
him. Mr Smith, it is understood,
refused to attend the meeting.
It is reported that Mr Smith
told Mr Peet that he did not see
the need to attend a meeting if
the prime minister was not
attending and said that tie

By ALISON LOWE
It has been confirmed that a
day-trip to Abaco by the minis-
ter of health cost almost
$14,000.
On Wednesday, MP for
South Abaco Robert Sweeting
chastised the PLP government
in the House for spending too
much public money on "extrav-
agances" such as the charter-
ing of a private King Air jet to
Abaco, along with the rental of
16 vehicles and not enough
on areas in desperate need of
funding, such as education and
health.
Now, the full extent of the
expenses for the one-day trip
has been revealed a total of
$13,906.30 almost $1000 more
than the $13,000 that Mr Sweet-
ing had initially deemed wor-
thy of criticism.
Mr Sweeting recounted how
the trip, made in March of this
year to attend the commission-
ing of a new ambulance in Aba-
co, was typical of the govern-
ment's willingness to put up
large sums of money to fund
ministerial travel expenses
whilst other areas languish
financially.
The expense report, seen by
The Tribune yesterday, states
that the cost was required in
order to facilitate the "neces-
sary-arrangements" for the
commissioning event.
Listed is a $6,684.80 bill for
"air travel services" indicat-
ing the cost of hiring a King Air
private jet to fly the ministers
and other officials to Abaco.

Mr Sweeting questioned why
the ministers could not have
travelled t less expense with
Bahamasar.
Furthermore, a $600 cost was
recorded in the report for the
"live -recording of event" .bv
Radio Abaco although why.
coverage 4ould need to be paid
'for as noi explained.
The report also notes that
$420 \ as pent on "breakfast"
for those involved in.the visit.
Other costs include $1,901.50
to a Ms Rolle for "chairs,
tents, lectern, decorations, etc,"
while the smallest sum $200 -
was reserved for a donation to a
local college band.
In an inte view with The Tri-
bune on Wednesday, Mr Sweet-
ing highlighted his concerns by
pointing to the ways in which
funding shortfalls have affect-
edhis Abaco'constituency.
In one scb6ol. he claimed, 500
students have been unable to
do basic copying after funding
problems left .them without a
much-needed: photocopying
machine.
Another elderly constituent
claimed that he was unable to
get high blood pressure med-
ication for the $ame reason, said
Sweeting. i

THE launch of a Special
Olympics coaches training clin-
ic was announced yesterday -
in the absence of Minister of
Youth Sports and Housing,
Neville Wisdom.
The clinic has been organised
in an effort to enhance the qual-
ity of the Bahamian contribu-
tion to the international com-
petition.
Mr Wisdom was slated to
make tie "anri6ui'ement and
discuss the matter with the press
yesterday, but was said to be
unavailable because he was at a
cabinet meeting.
However, when The Tribune
attempted to contact him for
comment on the clinic, a gov-
ernment spokesman said that
the minister was not at the
Churchill Building yesterday
and that there was no meeting
of cabinet.
It fell to Special Olympic
Committee national chairman
Basil Christie to explain that
the coaches training clinic will
be geared to enhance coaching
methods and techniques to
ensure the quality of sports
training and athletic competi-
tion for athletes of all abilities.
"We do this every two years
because the coaches that we
have now are some what gener-
ic for special Olympics and they
need to be updated on coaching

development whereas this is a
specialised sport," he said.
"What we want to do prior
to 2007 is to provide better com-
petition opportunities in prepa-
ration for these games."
Mr Christie emphasised that
the success of the programme
over the years was based on the
help received from volunteers
that worked with the athletes
throughout the year.
He also noted that credit is
due to the corporate communi-
ty and the public as they offered
financial help.


Mr Christie said that training
for the coaches will be at a high
level this year as they have
hired the technical-director for
Special Olympics in the
Caribbean.
Committee national chairman
Amanda Moncur said that the
Special Olympics is not just one
event, "it is a year-round pro-
gramme worldwide for mental-
ly handicapped persons that
yields a variety of competition
opportunities."
She emphasised that finding
coaches for different sports is


the most challenging job of run-
ning the programmme.
"In certain sports there is an
abundance of coaches and in
other sports there is not
enough," she said.
Financial officer Disa Harper
said: "Internationally the whole
focus is to provide activities for
mentally challenged individu-
als and to maximise their poten-
tial as they communicate with
each other through sports."
Twenty-six athletes will rep-
resent the Bahamas in Shang-
hai, China on October 7 to 11.

Pull up a stool, Robocop


WACO, Texas Everything that goes
on in Milwaukee bars will be captured on
camera.
This proposed city ordinance is designed
to curb violence and disorder.
There was a time when I would have
been upset with the idea of security cam-
eras recording my sometimes spirited
exploits in taverns, nightclubs, bars, saloons.
and honky tonks.
Film of some of my patented moves on
the ladies and my pool hustling secrets
could be dangerous in the wrong hands.
Nevertheless, Milwaukee alderman Bob
Bauman has proposed installing security
cameras in the city's bars, taverns and
nightclubs to record the customers' activi-
ties.
Constant camera surveillance would be
akin to having a police officer or two in
every bar watching you.
This might dampen the fun factor for
people who want to'kick up their heels a bit
in their favourite watering hole. But it
probably would assist the noble goal of
curbing crime and public disturbances.
This isn't a new idea. The forces of law
and order have seen the future and "it is
Robocop. with a dash of Terminator
thrown in. ',
. It's hard to argue againstthis movement. ",;
Like Superman, most people believe in
truth, justice and the American way. Amer-
icans, anyway. Likewise, they oppose crime
and support law enforcement.
At the same time, most people don't like
to pay high taxes. Law enforcement is
expensive. Police officers expect, and
deserve, to earn a decent wage sufficient to
buy a home, raise a family, send their chil-
dren to college and retire with an adequate
pension.
Milwaukee's taxpayers would not stand
still for the tax increases required. to put
one or two.cops in every city bar, even
though fights and other anti-social acts
take place in these establishments. Or, so
I've been told.
Technology has permanently rewritten
the formula associated with cost-justifying
law enforcement. Computers keep getting
cheaper, more powerful and smarter. Com-

puters and surveillance cameras can be
trained to recognize faces, voices and phys-
ical characteristics. They can identify peo-
ple by looking into their eyes. Complicated
algorithms can predict behavior
r or the probability of truthfulness.
With the advancement of artificial intel-
ligence, computers will be able to train
themselves to better protect and serve, the
Goal of all good law enforcement agencies.
Earlier this year, Chicago Mayor Richard
Daley proposed mounting surveillance
cameras with microphones on city streets to
record people as they went about their dai-
ly routines. It is quite likely that some of
these people would be up to no good.
Daley also proposed aiming cameras at
bars, taverns and nightclubs. Politicians
always find it easy to pick on the sinners.
In Chicago, government would pay for,
install and operate the cameras.
The Milwaukee surveillance proposal
has the added taxpayer benefit of forcing
private business owners to pay for and
maintain the cameras used to surveil their
own customers. Like the little guy says on
the Guinness beer commercial, "Brilliant!
Brilliant!"
The surveillance cameras in airborne
drones that have been so successful in ,
Afghanistan and Iraq would be another
step toward getting more bang for the law
enforcement buck right here at home.
Remote-controlled eyes in the sky could
track the movements of people when they
leave their homes to better protect them
from criminals and other hazards.
Once again, Texas has come up with a
unique way to protect the home front with
surveillance cameras. Gov. Rick Perry
wants the surveillance cameras installed
along the border with Mexico to provide
live coverage to Internet users, thus turning
all the people in cyberworldinto junior G-
men on the lookout for drug smugglers,
terrorists and illegal aliens. Brilliant! Bril-
liant!
I propose the same streaming video from
the surveillance cameras inside bars.

late Mr Nathaniel Beneby, Jr
on his recent appointment as
Vice President and Country
Head for The Bahamas of the
Royal Bank of Canada (RBC).
In a nation where Bahamiani-
sation should be one of our
highest priorities, he is without
doubt a shining example of the
levels of attainment to which
Bahamians can aspire.
I also wish to commend.Mr
Ross McDonald, Senior Vice
President, Bahamaas and
Caribbean for RBC, for having
the acuity to appreciate Mr
Beneby's expertise and capa-
bility and the faith in this excep-
tional Bahamian to elevate him
to this position.
I would be remiss if, while I
am congratulating Mr Beneby
on his advancement, I did not
also mention that, although he
is not the first Bahamian to be
promoted to such a high level in
this industry by an internation-
al banking institution that is the
second pillar of our economy, I
would like to encourage him to
be the first Bahamian to create
a legacy of identifying, devel-
oping and encouraging other
Bahamians in his company to
follow in his footsteps. I would
very much like for it to be said
that Mr Beneby, unlike the oth-


hws way





the too


er Bahamian who attained this
kind of status in another inter-
national banking house of more
than fifteen years in the role of
Country Manager, but did not,
have the vision to train a
Bahamian to succeed him in
that position, was the first in a
long line of Bahamians in that
position at the RBC, as well as
other multinational banks and
companies.
Mr Beneby's promotion is
indicative of a very exciting
future for our young men and
women. His promotion is sig-
nificant because it symbolises.
the, potential for the develop-
ment of a culture of Bahamian
managers who can not only lead
businesses in this country but
who are in, demand to fill those
same positions all over the
. region and the world.
Just as I hold the policy of
Bahamianisation in the highest
regard and believe that it is one
of the most important building
blocks for our nation, I also
want to see the encouragement
of excellence in our financial
services sector and other disci-
plines. I want to see an active
effort made not only to Bahami-


anise the management levels of
every business, but also to.
develop the incredible talent"
that exists in our workforce,,
today with an eye toward ensur-.
ing that they are prepared and
made ready to assume leader-
ship roles in business and indus-
try, both here and abroad. .
I envision that we must create.
a Bahamian nationalism that
includes the highest degree of
distinction and transcends our
borders, so that non-Bahami-
ans like Mr McDonald will eas-
ily recognize and promote our'
Bahamian men and women to
even greater positions of.
authority and leadership.
I applaud Mr Beneby for
putting the lie to those decla-,
rations that we hear all too
often today, statements made"
by supposedly responsible peo-
ple who claim that there are no
outstanding, capable Bahami-
ans to put in high places. I look
forward to the day when
Bahamians are as readily able
to discern the valuable and tal-'
ented people we have in our
nation, as did Mr McDonald'
and place them in the proper
positions to guide our Bahamas
to higher levels than we even
dare to dream of today. .

THE TRIBUNE SATURDAY OCBER 7, 2006,
I I I~l~kI r6'


A 12-year-old Bahamian
boy has become one of the
youngest students to enrol
in a Jamaican university.
According to the Barba-
dian Nation newspaper,
Kevin Rolle is settling in
well after his first month
away from home.
Kevin is studying for a
'bachelor's degree in theolo-
.gy at Jamaica's Northern
Caribbean University, and
,hopes to minor in criminal
'law.
S "High school was very
boring. The sort of stuff they
were doing, I'd already
passed. My mom had taught
me them from an early age,
so it was like at the age of
nine or so, I did the stuff I
was learning in grade sev-
en," Kevin was quoted as
saying.
"Normally, the teacher
Would give me something
different from the other
children, although some-
times it'd still Be something
that I'd already learnt."
Kevin's mother, Joan
Rolle, told BBC Caribbean
that she was very nervous
about sending her only child
off to another country and
university at such a tender
age.
"I'm very pleased to see
how it worked out, I'm very
proud," she said. Mrs Rolle
said her son could read from
the age of three and subse-
quently acquired a strong
liking for books.
And, despite her having
a hand in his studies
throughout the administra-
tion of home schooling, she
still remains surprised by his
rapid intellectual growth.
"He reads everything;
sometimes when I hear him
say certain things, I wonder,
how does he know that?"
she said.
Not surprisingly, Kevin
describes himself as "not
your average 12-year-old".
He said he does not like
sports. "Most of the time I
am eit ;inside studying,
reading a book or doing,
something educational."

Wisdom: One in




10 young men




will go to prison
w iu to


Around 10 per cent of young
men in the Bahamas will end
up in prison if the current cli-
mate of criminality does not
change.
This was revealed yesterday
by Minister of Youth Neville
Wisdom, who told the Rotary
Club of West Nassau that the
country needs to develop a
"spirit of volunteerism."
The minister was speaking at
the club's annual luncheon held
at Choices Restaurant at the
College of the Bahamas.
He also claimed the same
percentage of young women
will end up unmarried and with
a child before the age of 21.
However, the minister told
the audience that at the
moment, there are more than
1,200 youth, sports and culture
organizations in the Bahamas
in which young people are
involved.
According to Mr Wisdom
"not one of these young peo-
ple will find themselves in front
of a judge or magistrate facing a
serious charge."
-


Neville Wisdom
The minister claimed that
young people who enter youth
programmes have a better
chance of being good citizens
and that his ministry envisions
that every young person
between the ages of eight and
18 should be involved in a youth
programme.
Mr Wisdom also remarked


that young men in the Bahamas
are in serious need of proper
male role models.
"As wonderful as our women
are," he said, "there is still one
thing that they can't be and
that's men."
He claimed that it only costs
$2,500 per young person annu-
ally to maintain their character
within these programmes.
"The reality is that you either
pay at the front end or you pay
at the back end," he warned his
audience.
Mr Wisdom said he believes
that "the spirit of volunteerism
is diminishing very quickly in
our country."
He stated that the Bahamas
needed to do more to develop a
spirit of volunteerism, especial-
ly among youth, and that if it
does not, society will be seri-
ously impacted.
The minister suggested that
there is no reason why students
enrolled at the College of the
Bahamas should not be asked
to participate in volunteering
projects in the community.


'Departing' for quality


By JASON DONALD
THE DEPARTED
Starring: Leonardo DiCaprio,
Matt Damon, Jack Nicholson,
Mark Wahlberg
WE'VE heard it so many
times now: "the best thing
Scorsese's done since Goodfel-
las." The trouble is, it's never
the case.
Since the iconic director hit
his peak with that particular
modern classic, his subsequent
releases have been a bit of a
mixed bag.
Of course. everything that.
Martin Scorsese helms is always
worth a look, but movies such
Sas Gangs of New York, Bring-
ing Out the Dead and The Avi-
ator have all, despite great
moments, fallen short of top
drawer status.
That could be about to


change. The early buzz for The
Departed (released this week) is
good, great in fact, and, if that
doesn't get you excited, one
look at the cast should.
This crime drama, based on
Hong Kong thriller Infernal
Affairs, features a dream line-
up of superstar character actors
in a tale of two men going
undercover one in the police
and one in the Irish Mafia.
So far 200 has given us little
more than mediocrity on our
screens, but at last it looks like
we could have a real quality
flick on our hands.
So get in line this weekend
for The Departed. I know I will

Attempted rape

convict apologises


FROM page one
whatever harm I caused. I am
very sorry."
This had no bearing on Jus-
tice Jon Isaacs' ruling, however.
He noted that the apology came
only after he was convicted.
Newbold could be heard swear-
ing in the prisoner's dock.
The judge took into consid-
eration the fact that Newbold
had already spent two years on
remand, as was pointed out by
his attorney Michael Smith, and
sentenced him to serve 16 years
in jail on the conviction of bur-
glary and ordered that he


receive eight strokes of the rod,
four upon entering the prison
and four on departure.
Newbold was also sentenced
to serve six years in jail for
attempted rape and two years in
prison on the conviction of
causing harm. The sentences are
to run concurrently.
Justice Isaacs stated that the
four strokes of the rod are not
to be administered until three
weeks from yesterday's date,
giving time for an appeal by
Newbold's defence attorney.
Stephanie Pintard and Cheryl
Grant-Bethel appeared for the
prosecution.

Poet's


second


book released.


By DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport Reporter
FREEPORT Bahamian
Kirkwood Ferguson's second
book of poetry, Eternal Desires
has been released and is now
available on Grand Bahama.
The compilation of poems
reflects a more spiritual side of
Mr Ferguson, whose first book.
Love, Desire and Understand-
ing focused more on "young
love."
Ferguson, who is pursuing a


master's degree at George
Washington University in the
US, is a former student of
Hawksbill Senior High School.
During his present visit to
Grand Bahama, Ferguson
decided to release his sopho-
more self-published book of
poems.
"I wanted to take love to the
next level in this new book of
what true love is. I took a spiri-
tual approach because basically
I found out that true love comes
from above, and only when we


emulate what is true do we ever
achieve that and that is the
focus I took in the new book,"
he explained.
Mr Ferguson said his return
to Grand Bahama has been bit-
ter-sweet. While he is happy to
be home, he was deeply dis-
turbed by the negative changes
he sees on the island.
"I grew up here and I have a
passion for Grand Bahama. I
have spent several years in the
US and coming back I have
noticed a big difference in the
Grand Bahama I left it has
regressed since the setbacks of
the hurricanes."


While in Grand Bahama, Fer-
guson is also expected to release
a third book.
"With Unto to him a Crown I
want young people to be aware
of what is happening out there
as far as the dangers of the
Internet. In the Bahamas there
are many cases of spousal abuse
and child abuse and molesta-
tion and the book addresses a
lot of those issues and how to
protect your child."
He said that he felt compelled
to write Eternal Desires
because he "wanted people to
understand that they should live
love every day".

Both MPs appeared on Love
97's Jones and Company last
Sunday where they addressed
the circumstances surrounding
the altercation.
Although both men apolo-


gised for the incident, they
avoided describing it as a fist
fight.
In the aftermath of their
appearance, some senior PLP
members were upset that Mr
Smith and Mr Gibson did not
display in their appearance the
level of seriousness the gravity
of the situation demanded.

Humane Society:




Do something




good for animals


THE Bahamas Humane Soci-
ety has joined hundreds of ani-
mal welfare organizationss
around the world this week as a
participant in 'World Animal
Week'.
The event celebrates the
compassionate life of St Francis
of Assisi, founder of the Fran-
ciscan order.
The concept for the week
sprang from World Animal Day
that marks the Feast Day of
Saint Francis, patron saint of
animals and ecology, who died
on October 4, 1226 at the age of
45.
"People have peen celebrat-
ing this day in their own spe-
cial way since 1930 and the
Bahamas Humane Society is
asking everyone in these islands
to do something positive to help
animals, this week," said BHS
in a statement.
It said the past few years of
the event have seen an "incred-


ible amount" of activity across
the globe.
Last year, activities included
an animal welfare road-show in
Singapore, awareness cam-
paigns in Bhutan and Nepal,
educational programmes in
Malta and Cyprus, gala events
in Australia, kindness clubs
being set up in Bali, Kenya,
Tanzania, Zanzibar and Sierra
Leone as well as a vaccination
drive in Ghana and animal
blessing church services in New
Zealand and many other coun-
tries.
The BHS recognized the
occasion last year by providing
training for Royal Bahamas
Police Force officers to combat
organised illegal animal fight-
ing.
In June this year, BHS exec-
utive director Kevin Degenhard
attended the World Society for
the Protection of Animals
(WSPA) biennial symposium in


London, where he was amongst
the first to sign a global peti-
tion, launched at that time,
which simply asks people to say
'Animals matter to me'.
The petition is calling for a
United Nations universal dec-
laration on animal welfare.
'he event was attended by
more than 300 animal welfare
groups from over 110 countries.
Launching the petition,
WSPA director general Peter
Davies said: "This is the largest
ever global animal welfare ini-
tiative.
"It is a huge milestone in our
work to build a world free from
cruelty and suffering for billions
of animals".
Kevin Degenhard said: "The
Bahamas was prominent
through the BHS two-day law
enforcement workshop which
Chief Inspector Turnquest and
I presented at the Caribbean
Animal Welfare Conference in


ar ...* -iM -A

Antigua last May. As an active
member society of WSPA, the
BHS is working hard to
improve animal welfare stan-
dards in this country and we ful-
ly support World Animal'Week
as we see ourselves as part of a
global team protecting animals.,
"Please do something posi-
tive this week to shqw you have
taken part. Actions speak loud-
er than words," he said.


Plastic models no 'horse play'


A central Idaho club that
exhibits plastic model horses
not only raises the confidence of
its young participants but is
helping save an endangered
wild horse in the Bahamas.
"It's the perfect answer for
kids who can't have a real horse
because of the cost or physical
disability or allergies to experi-
ence all the fun and learning
that goes into keeping and
showing horses," Susan
Dudasik, leader of the Salmon'
Model Horse 4-H Club, told the
Post Register. "You wouldn't
even recognize some of the kids
from one year to the next, with
the way their confidence has


if. -


grown."
According to the Associat-
ed Press, the group also began a
letter-writing campaign when
they found out about Abaco
Barb, an endangered wild horse
found .only on the Bahamian
island of Abaco, where 12 of
them now roam.
They apparently are descend-
ed from horses left on the island
by Spanish colonisers years ago.
They asked Breyer, the
largest maker of model horses
in America, to add a model to
raise money for Abaco Barbs.
The company responded with
a model called Capella, one of
the herd's stallions. So far,

$11,000 has been raised for the
wild horses, and a note on the
box gives credit to the Salmon
Model Horse 4-H Club for com-
ing up with the idea.
"Jn this country, we come
frbm a horse culture," Dudasik
said. "These kids want to share
that love and that passion."
At the club's horse shows,
participants must meet the same,,
standards and rules that are part


of horse shows with live horses.
That means their plastic horse
models must meet the' meticu-
lous details required in the var-
ious classes ranging from West-
ern to English and.jumping to
pleasure.
Model horses in the English
class must have their mane
braided, while Western saddle
horses should have the mane
unbound.

British American Breast Cancer Tip

A test to detect and diagnose breast cancer is an estrogen
and progesterone receptor test. This test will show
whether or not one or both of these hormones fuel your
tumor. Cancer that is hormone-sensitive is slightly slower
growing and has a better chance of responding to hor- *' r
mone-suppression treatment, than cancer that is hormone receptor negative. Hormone-negative
cancer will respond to other kinds of treatment, and hormone-suppression may not be needed.

SAILING
By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter'
S TWO-time champion Augie
-.. Diaz has moved closer to
clinching his third title at the
2006 Snipe World Masters Sail-
ing Championships.
After a second place finish in
the first race on Thursday,
Diaz and his crew, Pam Keily,
cruised to two consecutive vic-
tories yesterday in Montagu
Bay to top the leaderboard.
The American collected a
total of 3.5 points to hold a
considerable lead over his
nearest rival, compatriot Terry
Titmm and crew Mardi, who
came through with three fourth
plate finishes for 12 points.
Sitting in third is the
Bahamian team of Robert
Dunkley and Michelle Hope,
who improved each race from
eight to sixth to third for 17
points.
The Bahamian husband and
wife team of Jimmie and Lori
Lowe are in sixth place with
24. They were consistent with a
ninth, seventh and eight place
respectively.
Another American team,
Peter Commette and Barb
Evans, who won the first race,
got third in the second race
and.were hit with a start penal-
ty as they finished 10th in the
third race for 10th overall with
42.75.
Today, the final two races in
the championships are expect-
ed to be contested back-to-
back. Diaz, who has also won
two world titles, said he's con-
fident that he can take the title.
"W lhad- eally good luck,"
said Diaz, after the first victory.
'Peter, who won the first race,
really controlled the race today
and so we were very fortunate
that he fell into a hole and he
didn't have any wind as we
caught up to him.
"But in the act of catching
up to him, we didn't have con-
trol of the race. So we ended
up taking the lead in the final
windward lead. So we were
really pleased that we were
able to pass him."
In the ensuing race, Diaz and
Keily took control from the
break and they managed to
hold off all challengers as they
surged to the front of the pack.
; "It's going to be a war. It's
riot just going to be Peter and I
because there are a lot of guys
right behind us threatening us,
so the least mistake we make,
these other guys could pass
us."
SCommette admitted that los-
ing the second race down the,

* Here's a look at the standings after the first three races contested in the
2006 Snipe World Masters Sailing Championships in Montagu Bay:


stretch really hurt their chances
against a competitor like Diaz.
"World champion was too
close and I made a mistake,"
Commette stressed. "I'm usu-
ally a better starter than he is
because I have a lot of speed.
But he's better at coming back.

Start

"I'm probably not as tough
as he is. If the two of us get off
to the same start, we will be in
for a good fight. But if he gets
off to a good start, I'm in trou-
ble. If I get off to a good start,
he's in trouble."
In the last race yesterday,
Commette joined seven other
boats who were hit with an on
course site penalty for cross-
ing the line before the start of
the race.
As for the local flavour,
Dunkley said disappointed that
they didn't do any better than
sixth in the first race. But he
was more than pleased with


their third that moved them to
third overall.
"We didn't sail that well
unfortunately," he reflected
after the first race yesterday.
"But we will do better. We had
some opportunities to do it."
Dunkley said he and Lowe
are right in contention, but he
feels they both could do much
better than they have done so
far.
Lowe, who has produced
two third place finishers in the
past, said they got trapped a
little longer than he expected
in the first race yesterday and
they had to play catch up.
"It's tough when you have
to come from behind the way
we did," he insisted.
"We have some really good
guys here, so it's going to be
tough.
"'I don't think winning
overall is a possibility any-
more.
"But anything could happen.
There's still room to move for-
ward."

Legendary

coach kept

busy in the

Bahamas

By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports
Reporter

SINCE arriving in
town last Sunday,
coach Harry Groves
has had a busy sched-
ule.
The legendary coach
of Bahamas Associa-
tion of Athletic Associ-
ations' president Mike
Sands while at Penn
State University, will
be back in town today
to put on his final clin-
ic in New Providence
at 3pm at the Thomas
A. Robinson Track and
Field Stadium.
Groves, who has
coached more than 200
All-Americans and
won almost 900 dual
meets against other
universities, will be
returning after spend-
ing the past two days in
Abaco.
He was entertained
there by Jerry Wisdom
and the high schools on
the island, just as he
was at some of the
schools here in New
Providence earlier in
the week.
On Monday morning,
Groves will address the
assembly at CI Gibson
Secondary High before
he flies off to Grand
Bahama to participate
in a full slate of activi-
ties through Wednes-
day.
"It's been going very
good," said Sands,
"What has happened is
that it had taken a
slightly different twist
than was originally
planned, but it's been
good.
"The twist is that
he's been doing a lot of
talking to the schools,
to the kids and not just
track and field, but the
student-athletes about
their future in college."
Galilee Academy,
RM Bailey, CH Reeves
and Faith Temple were
the schools Groves vis-
ited during the past
week.
Star Trackers Track
Club's head coach
Dave Charlton and dis-
tance coach Trevor
Strachan also enter-
tained Groves and they
were impressed.
"He has a wealth of
knowledge and coach
Strachan and I have
been quite impressed
with his wealth of
knowledge," Charlton
stated. "We've learned
quite a bit from him
and Strachan wants to
implement some of
those things we learned
right away with our
athletes."
Charlton said he's
always in the business
of gaining as much
information that he can
receive, so he openly .
accepted the opportu-
nity to learn from
Groves.
"Coach Groves actu-
ally coached an
Olympic 400 metre
hurdles silver medalist,
so I'm trying to get as
much knowledge from
him to help our bud-
ding hurdler Nathan
Arnette," Charlton
pointed out.
"Last year, Arnette
set a junior CAC
region in the 400 hur-
dles and I'm looking
* forward to some great
things from him next
year.
"So it was good to
have coach Groves


look at him and show-
ing us some things we
can do with him."
On his return from
Grand Bahama, Sands
said the Bahamas
Olympic Association is
expected to host
Groves to a send off
reception, similar to
the welcome ceremony
that was hosted by the
BAAA and Harrison
Petty at the Colony
Club.


National softball team





misses the cut for 2009


* SOFTBALL
By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter

THE Bahamas men's
national softball team missed
the cut for the 2009 Interna-
tional Softball Federation
Men's World Championship,
but they have earned a spot
in the 2007 Pan American
Softball Championships.
Bahamas Softball Federa-
tion's first vice president Bur-
kett Dorsett, who is traveling
as head of the delegation at
the qualifying tournament in
Mexico, said the Bahamas
missed the top five for the for-
mer tournament, but will be
, in the top eight for the latter.
"There are still some games
to be played, so we won't
know exactly where we are,"
Dorsett said in an interview
with The Tribune yesterday.
While the Bahamas won't
make it to Canada in 2009 for
the World Championships,


But Bahamas earns spot

in 2007 Pan American

Softball Championships


they will head to the Pan
American Championships in
Guatemala next year.
The Bahamas, hit by a seri-
ous of injuries, went into their
final game of the round robin
play yesterday against
Ecuador with a 3-5 win-loss
record.
The team had jumped out
to an impressive 3-0 start, but
went down the opposite side
of the ladder, losing a double
header on Thursday.
They were blanked 7-0 by
Canada and dropped a 3-2,
decision to Mexico.
"Our pitching really fell
down because our two main


pitchers got hurt," Dorsett
said. "(Brain Neely) Ninja had
to go into the local hospital
on drips with a stomach virus
so we only had Anton Gibson
to rely on."
That's because ace Edney
'the Heat' Bethel suffered an
injury and didn't play the past
two days. Neely was able to
return to action on Wednes-
day and pitched against the
United States.
* He held the US scoreless
through the first four innings
before Bethel came in and
gave up all of the runs to the
Americans.
On Thursday, the Bahamas


lost 3-2 to Mexico as Gibson
went the distance in the loss.
In fact, it was 2-2 until the fifth
when Mexico broke the ice
and left the Bahamas behind.
Van 'Lil Joe' Johnson had a
two-run triple to score the
Bahamas' only two runs in the
game.
"In talking with the players,
what really affected them is
that they had a long lay-off,
not having played in New
Providence for the past 10
weeks," said Dorsett because
of the halt in the New Provi-
dence Softball Association to
accommodate the preparation
for the construction of the new
national stadium.
"Even thought they prac-
tised, they didn't have any
playing situation. The players
in Grand Bahama, Eleuthera,
Exuma and Long Island also
indicated that they didn't play
--sufficient before they came
here."
Dorsett, however, compli-


mented the Bahamas Olympic
Association for assisting the
BSF in bringing the players
together in a two-week camp
to get ready for the tourna-
ment.
"Hopefully if we can get
together for some time before
we travel, I think we will be
ready," Dorsett said.
"That's sometime we need
to do, get the players in some
type of isolated area so they
can get ready."
Defensively, the Bahamas
is being considered one of the
top teams at the tournament,
but they have fell down offen-
sively as they struggled to
score runs as the week pro-
gressed.
Additionally, Dorsett said
the team suffered injuries to
Winston Seymour and Jamaal
'Sarge' Johnson, but they
are not using that as an
excuse.
The team is due to return
home on Monday.

Lori are on the

Opening lead jack of spades..
The main reason why some play-
ers win more national and world
championships than others is, with-
out question, superior skills. But on
occasion, luck in the form of
being in the right place at the right
time can play an important role.
Here's a good example ofhow the
luck factor works. Bob Hamman,
one of the world's best, was playing
in the 1983 Life Master Pairs, and on
the first of two deals opened the bid-
ding with two notrump. The next


Trouble
player doubled, everybody passed,
and although the defenders could
have taken the first six tricks with a
different opening lead, Hamman
wound up making nine tricks for a
score of 890 points.
S-On the second deal, the one in the
diagram, Hamman held the South
hand and got to four hearts doubled
on the bidding shown. Offhand, it
might seem that West doubled once
or twice too often, but be that as it
may, he exercised his constitutional
right to free speech and followed this
by leading the jack of spades.
It did not take Hamman long to
teach West a lesson. He won the jack
with dummy's king, cashed the A-K
of trumps and A-Q of spades, dis-
carding two diamonds from dummy,
and then led the five of diamonds
toward dummy's singleton nine.
West compounded his previous
felonies by. following low, and the
outcome was that Hamman made the
doubled contract with three over-
tricks to score another 890 points!
,One important principle that
emerges is that if your opponents are
trying for a slam (which is what
Hamman's four-dianiond bid sug-
gested), it's poor policy, to double
them when they stop at a mere game.
Also, we'd like to add that when
West was asked whether it would be
OK to use his name as part of this
story, he said he would not particu-
larly relish the publicity!

SATURDAY,
OCTOBER 7

ARIES Mar 21/Apr 20
You have put off certain tasks for too
long, and now there can be no more
excuses for procrastination. You know
that if you apply yourself consistently;,
Aries, you will get the job done.
TAURUS Apr 21/May 21
The most important thing for this
week is for you to make an effort to.
stay cheerful. You have the tendency -
to fear the worst, Taurus, but things .
will work out for the best.
GEMINI May 22/Jun 21
If you'need help with a project, ask
for it..You are surrounded with pos-
itive energy from friends; you'd be a ,
fool not to want to take advantage of
their assistance.
CANCER Jun 22/Jul 22
If you want to move up in the world,
Cancer, now is the time to get your-
self noticed. It doesn't matter how
much talent you Have; you have to
get your name out to the masses.
LEO Jul 23/Aug 23
Nothing is worse than telling a lie,
Leo. Keep that in mind as you head
through the week and'are faced with
,uncomfortable situations. The truth
is always the better option.
VIRGO Aug 24/Sept 22
You will only get-where you want to
go if you make the sacrifices neces-
sary to start the journey, Virgo. Get
rid of negative thinking, pack your
bags and set out on an adventure.
LIBRA Sept 23/Oct 23
Others will soon find out about your
"secretive" plans, Libra. There's no
use trying to disguise them anymore,
and this begs the question, "What do
you need to hide anyway?" _
SCORPIO Oct 24/Nov 22
If you let others take advantage of
your willingness to work hard, they
certainly will, Scorpio. It's one thing
to be dedicated, but quite another to
be wasting your time.
SAGITrARIUS Nov 23/Dec 21
You don't lack confidence,
Sagittarius, but are you using it
wisely? Don't fiddle time away on
wasteful things ..; put your creative
thoughts into action.
CAPRICORN Dec 22/Jan 20
You don't need to explain why
you've done certain things lately,
Capricorn. As long as you're confi-
dent with your decisions, others
will respect your choices.
AQUARIUS Jan 21/Feb 18
If you turn on the charm this week,
you'll get what you want, Aquarius.
Surprisingly, what you want is also
what you deserve for being so dedi-
cated lately.
PISCES Feb 19/Mar 20
If you need to get things done this
week, don't appeal to others'
decency or common sense. Money
talks illustrate the bottom line.
