A MEMBER of the Coali-

spoken out against the "prosti '
tutmng of the political process?
during election time and in
favour of transparency and caps
on election campaign funding. ~
His claims were by and large
echoed by FNM chairman
Desmond Bannister, who
described such concerns asi
'extremely important issues

Tribune Staff Reporter
A NEW storm cripted
around Anna NiCole Smith Inst
night after claims that she does
neit own the $1;'million Nassau
home which formed the basis
of her fast-tracked residency
status.
If. true, the claim by Florida
developer .Ben Thompson an
ex-boyfriend of the- formerln real-
ity star could cause massive
political fallout for Prime Min-
ister Perry Chiristie and his gov-
ernment,
Under Bahamian law, Ms
'Smith, a former Playboy play-
mate, had to buy ~a property
worth at least $500,000 to qual-
ify for resideficy. Immigration
Minister Shane Gibson fast-
tracked hier application on that
basis, clairmig he would have
granted her wish within a day if
he could.
Now Mr: Thompson, of Myr-
tle' Beach, has dropped a bomb-
shell which calls into question
the 21tire pICCeSs and Mr
GJIbia\n'* reaso-n fo~r giving her
priority over hundreds of other
residency applicants.
Outraged attorneys and
politicians last night questioned
ibe~ pl.:ri tice~s of the ~Department
of Immigration and Mr Gib~son.
At pr-ess time, 265 internet
nlews articles we're alleging that
Mr Thompson, of Myrtle
Beach; had instructed his attor-


neys to issue Ms Smith with
notice to vacate: his home by
the end of the month.
Reported(\. Mlr Thiompson
had sold the home to hiLs Smith'
on credit but had yet to receive
an! pa!'ment on the house.
-She- jald nt Mas a gift. I never
said that,'' Mr Thompson is
reported as telling People Mag-
azine.
"I don't want to embarrass'
or humiliate her. Ijust need my
money or collateral backi"' he
said,
If these reports are true, then
the granting of Anila Nicole's
permanent residency must
come under closer scrutiny.
Speaking with The TribLine
yesterday, FNM leader Hubert
Ingraham said if such reports
are true, he hoped it would
cause' the prime minister to face
up to the reality of the kind of
people he has around him.
"If reports are true that Ms
Smith does not now, and did.
not own a house at-.he time of
the application and the grant
in the Immigration Boar dofa
certificate of permanent resi--
dency to her, thin I \roluld
expect the government will do
whatever is necessary to retain
the people's property.
"If false information or mis-
leading informatior~i was 1pro-
vided to the government m con-
nection with the application,

Jack Thompson reported that
the final draft of the unified bus
system plan is being "fine

thHnv,,r said, govern-
nient is still unable to set a date
for its implementation.
Speaking with The Tribune
yesterday, Mr Thompson said
his office is currently working
on the business plan and intends
to bring in all the stakeholders
to see it.
"We are preligririg the legal
framework' and once we have
completed the legal framework
and the business plan then we
can start the phasing in of the
unification of the busing sys-
tem," he said.
The unified bus system, which
has been disctissed by the Min-
istry of Transportation for the


past several years, is, a plan to
brmng all'~bius operators under
one eritity in anl effort to end
the lawlessness and disregard
for safety that has plagued this ;
industry for years.

MCORRECTION
THE murder rate so far this
year is only "slightly higher"
than it was last year, police say.
In the lead article of Mon-
day's Tribune, it was reported
that the 43rd murder for the
year, which took place over the
weekend, brought the count to
nearly double that of 2005.
However, Inspector Walter
Evains explained yesterday that
at this point last year, the mur-
der count was sit 42 only one
less than the present count.

THE lawlessness that
plagues the public bus system
is a result of "40 year mind-
set" that will not be changed
easily, an industry stakeholder
warned yesterday.
In a joint effort to begin
combatting this mindset, the
Road Traffic Department and
the Ministry of Wlorks are
placing new bus stop signs
across New Providehce,
Reuben Rahming, president
of Public Transportation Asso-
ciation (PTA) said he is confi-
dent that this effort will work


'the public to actually be able to
clearly identify the stops and
bring a degree of law and
order," he said.
wAldmitting thaetr ghhan e
Rahming said he is confident
that a public education cam-
paign could help reverse "the
40-year mindset of standing at
any crner, under a y tree or

"oM "iat will take an addi-
tional educational process
because you can't expect peod-
ple after doing something for
40 years recklessly~i~ll of a si~d-
den to change, over night but
we will work towards that."
He added that in the mean-
time, the new bus stop system
could bring about some
accountability.
"It will alleviate any legiti-
mate excuses that' drivers will
have when this is all completed
for not utilising the stop. It
now shifts the burden more
closely into the driver's hand,"
he said. "The signs are there

now,nyoutcan see them, i th

it could alleviate that problert.
"So now. I can tell my friends
in the police department and
in the road traffic department
that the 'issue of identification
has been removed. Let's now
move now with greater enforce-
ment to encourage these yduxg
operators of these uses to use

Calling the implementation
of signs a "beautiful step in the

COSNCD NOTED l
Long Island, Bahamas ''"
October 2006


EDITOR, The Tribune
I WRITE on behalf of the
concerned citizens here in Long
Island. I would appreciate you
printing the letter below but
would like to remain anony-
mous.

Ron Pinder's comment about
"mischief" is far from the truth!
People are complammig about
having health problems.
Furthermore a leak comes
from aline, not from hazardous
fumes. Did you not know that,
Heine ae some facts that
have been brought to the atten-
tion of the Administrator, Mr.
Preston Cunningham
A petition was gathered and
signed by over eighty residents
in the nearby settlements of
Mangrove Bush, Long Island
where' there is an establishment
that does fiberglass boat build-

nThree persons ages 12-44 in
this particular settlement of


forgetting that the day before he had told us
that the information had already been com-
piled and was ready and waiting to be collect-
ed;
ma e aure nots tri tcon 1dea boe erng ifr
can, and when we are ready and we are able to,
we will provide it to you," he again promised.
oWer dntn rub that tedid tf wantoto give
was that he didn't want to give out any infor-
mation at all. Because of this dodging; the
public is justified in believing that something is
being hidden, and that some contractors prob-
ably have a justifiable complaint.
Now five months later, contractors are still
cmpa inig and tnants haveofoie dintdheir
that the Ministry expects them to call "home."
And so The Tribune is back with its request
for information. We are asking for the same
information that we requested mn writing ear-
ly in May "a list of all persons and compa-
nies awarded contracts under the Mimistry of
~Housing to build and develop housing subdi~
visions, roadways, or any other project mnNew
Providence and Grand Bahama."
'"We are looking specifically for names of
contractors and the amounts awarded to each
since the PLP took office in May, 2002," said
our reporter's letter to Mr Wisdom.
-; This time The Tribune has no plan to drop
the issue. We are amazed at the attitude of a
government that boasts so loudly about open-
ness and accountability.
No government minister, elected by the peo~
ple, whose salaries are paid by the people'
who are answerable and can be fired by the
.people, has any~right not to keep the people
informed of how they are managing the peo-
ple's business.
What is going on behind closed doors is not
private contracts using private funds. It is the
people's business using taxpayers' dollars.
These men, who call themselves mnumsters, are
employees, who are duty bound to give an
accounting to their employers when they are
requested to do so.
A group of citizens has asked The Tribune
on their behalf to get an accounting of how
their business is being managed by their
employeess. So far we have been unsuccessful.
However, we intend -to daily publish our
request to the Minister. It is then for the peo-
ple to decide how loryg they mntend to tolerate
such arrogance from their elected represen-
tatives.


ON THE evening of May 8, Minister of
Housing N'eville Wisdom telephoned The Trt-
bune to assure a reporter that transparency
was of the "utmost importance" to him and "to
hrs cc lagus ad b hta lity f dul ding c
ered to our offices the next morning.
His call to The Tribune was made after con-
tn scst sphreot stn tha red gd bee un ar
The complaints went back to a- time before
Mr Wisdom had taken over the Housing port-
folio from Minister Shane Gibson. According
to the disgruntled contractors a dispropor-
tionate number of contracts were bemng award-
ed to a favoured few. As a result of their com-
phamntdo fh Tiue cnactdlitherMi itry
their complaints. .
As usual our reporters were given the run-
around by the Ministry, until Minister Wis-
dom came into focus offering, as a "servant of
the people," to answer the people's questions.
He said he. was having an "exhaustive" list
compiled that would be a testament to his
Ministry's commitment to transparency.
At about 70'clock on Monday evening, May
8, he telephoned the reporter who was ask-
ing the questions. He said the list was ready to
be picked up by our messenger. As we had
no messenger at that hour, and it was already
past our deadline, we said we would have~it
collected first thing Tuesday morning. He said
that that was fine by him.
On Tuesday morning, the reporter called '
the Ministry's secretary to say that our mes-
senger was on the way to pick up the envelope
left by Mr Wisdom. She said a messenger was
not necessary, the documents had already been
sent and would be at our offices in half an
hour.
Hours passed. No documents. Another call
was made to the Ministry to find out where the
documents had been sent. This time we were
told that the documents would not be sent.
They would not be available. The minister,
we wer-e told, would call The Tribune when
he got out of Cabinet. .
When the Minister eventually came on the
phone that evening, he denied that a list had
been sent from his office to The Tribune that
day. That was obvious as no docuIn'ents had
arrived. However, he assured us that as soon as
his Ministry was able to provide the relevant
information, it would do so quickly.
"There is so much information that we will
peed time to compile it," he said, apparently


So if this is such a good idea.,'
why aren't we doing it now?l
One of the problems is in the~z
Electricity Act, when it was, a
written it put BEC only in elec-
tricity business so it was -notg

hi -productsi the wa~ste heatr
Thi- o~rther problem In the act i~
that BEC In Nasisu ii pre~vent-;
.:nle ch,~ to~ I`perate a c
has that authority and it has
'never been used. Another prob--
lem is with BEC's lenders at the
Inter-America Development.
Bank, they do not want to see
anything that could endanger
BEC's revenue and their loan
payment should its major cus-
tomzrs suddenly becomeiinuch
"more energy efficient. Be~t these
are just~ paper problem.? and
easily fixed.
Why did we sign thek 1 oto;
Protocols if we don't plan ;1?
doing something about it? Thbis;;
is only a brief outline meant to
encourage discussion, there are
lots of options and for the good
of the planet we should start
now.

RAY WIKLUND

October 2006


EDITOR, The Tribune
I WOULD like to share a few
ideas on how the Bahamas
could begin to implement the
Kyoto Protocols, lower elec-
tricity costs and get, someone
else to pay for it. Kyoto calls
for the reduction of green house
gases, the burning of hydrocar-
bons. In the Bahamas all elec-
tricitp is~made this way. Cur-
rentlyi we use gas turbines and
diesel engines to power.our gen-
erators, the gas turbines can
only convert 38 per cent and
the diesels 60 per cent of the
energy used into electricity and
the rest of the energy is wasted.
A mature technology now exists
for turning this wasted energy
into chilled water for air condi-
tioning. These tec'hniqlues ~ar-e
called co-generation and they
can raise energy efficiency to
over 90 per cent.
The technology,` absorption
cooling, used to anmake the
chilled water is the same as the
kerosene or propane refrigera-
tor used on the Out Islands
before electricity, only bigger.
What has changed are the mate-
rials used to build them, now
they have a long life and require
very little maintenance.
Chilled water is used for air
conditioning in most of all large


buildings in the Bahamas. These
building's in Nassau are clus-
tered into groups, Cable Beach,
downtown and Paradise Island.
So that rather than laying niiles
and niiles of big pipes~ carrying
chilled water from the existing
power plants the gas turbines
and chilled water plants could
be relocated to these areas.
These are quite small and oper-
ate quietly. This could be a
good way to start.
When we become more ener-
gy efficient and reduce green
house gases we will earn credits
for these reductions. These CO2
reduction credits can be sold to '
countries and businesses that
cannot niet their reduction tar-
gets. The chilled water pro-
duced by the turbines would be
the equivalent of 160 .mega-
watts of power, this would also
allow us to defer the building
of new generating capacity at
Clifton Pier that will cost some
2 or 3 hundred million dollars.
BEC would also have the new
revenue from the sale of chll
water that would offset its lost
revenue from the sale of elec-
tricity and the consumer would
save by having a lower fuel sur-
charge on their electric bill. This
is how we can earn a triple
return on an energy efficiency
investment. -

AN alert was raised yester-
day after fake Bahamian $100
bills were discovered among
takings from last weekend's
International Culture Festival.
Several counterfeit ban-
knotes were detected at Nas-
sau banks as stallholders
deposited cash on Monday..
One of those hit was Mrs
Azaleta Ishmael-Newry, who
found that one of 14 $100 bills
in her till was forged.
She told The Tribune yes-
terday: "With so many fairs
and festivals coming up at this
time of the year, it's impor-
tant for people to be aware
that these forgeries are out
there.
"I had suspicions about the
colour of this particular bill,
but it was only when my hus-
band deposited my money at
the bank that it became clear
the note was a fake.


"The teller asked him if it
had come from the festival
and, when he said it had, she
said there had been other com-
plaints."
The fake note was said to be
of deeper blue~ than genuine
notes. But it was described as
"a good forgery" with a con-
vincing watermark:
Mrs Ishmael-Newry was sell-
ing clothes and chutney at the
India stall when the money
was handed over. She did not
realise at the time that the note
was a fake.
"My concern is that with the
arts and crafts fair coming up,
and the Jollification after that,
that more and more fake notes
will be passed at stalls."
She said those not used to
handling larie quantities of
money in a single day were
more vulnerable than bank
staff, who handled money all


the time.
"I am notifying the National
Trust so that they can be alert-
ed to this situation at their fair
this weekend," she said.
Forged $100 bills have been
a problem in the past. The
CDU's commercial crime
branch has issued warnings
about fakes, claiming they
were probably printed right
here in Nassau.
Mrs Ishmael-Newry said she
intends to buy a fake-detec-
tion machine for use at future
fairs.
The International Culture.
Festival committee is meeting
today and the subject of forged
notes is expected to be raised.
Police press liaison officer
Inspector Walter Evans said
that police were investigating
the claims and would report
on the matter in the near
future.

THE government should
have been more open and
honest about the fight
between MPs Keod Smith and
Kenyatta Gibson a senior
church leader said.
During his charge: to the
106tohd seso ofte Anlcs
op Drexel Gomez noted the
widespreadaattention that the
"An immediate and honest
acknowledgment would have
removed the necessity for
much of the public debate,"
he said.
"The regrettable and unac-
ceptable behaviour should
remmnd all persons who sit in
parliament or are desirous of
sitting in parliament, of the
absolute necessity of self-dis-
cipline and self-control mn their
private and public lives."
The Archbishop said that
three weeks on, several facts
about the incident are now
beyond dispute including
that the MPs did engage in a
"physical altercation".
He noted that both Mr
Smith and Mr Gibson
resigned from their posts as
ambassador to the environ-


ment and chairman of the
Gaming Board respectively.
The Archbishop also said
that both offered a public
apology for their "miscon-
duct" however Mr Smith has
not yet done~ so.

dard which this incident so
clearly shows," the Archbish-
op said.
He also noted that despite
the low registration numbers,
it is clear that the current elec-
tion campaigns are attracting a
great deal of attention.
Archbishop Gomez said that
it is a good time for Bahamians
to begin reviewing the charac-
ters of those who are offering
themselves for public office.
."It is imperative that public
life be upheld beyond
reproach. In the present cli-
mate of our country, it is sad
that we have not in the past
attended to ensuring that only
the highest standards of coli-
duct on the part of our politi-
cians is tolerated." he said.

South Abaco
FNM convert Edison Key is
expected to face off against PLP
candidate Gary Sawyer. Key, a
former PLP senator, made a
surprise appearance at the
FNM's November 2005 con-
vent-ion where he announced
that he would be joining the
FNM.

Bamboo Town
Halsbury Chambers partner
Branville McCartney will run
against independent incum-
bent and former FNM Ten-
nyson Wells. While Mr Wells
went unchallenged by the PLP


in 2002, many observers do
not believe this will be the
case in 2007. He and McCart-
ney will be vying for the same
block of votes and as 2007 is
expected to be a close race
and the PLP is not expected
to "throw away" the chance
to winl a seat.

Bain and Grants Town
If he decides to stay on as a
PLP candidate, Minister of
Works Bradley Roberts will
face president of the FNM
youth group the Torchbearers,
David Jordine.

expected to face Phillip "Brave"

Fayne Thompson, one of the

the party once considered the

- said that if certain people

their election campaign must be
limited and equalised.
"'It is a natural limit to the par-

his client was entitled to
Bahamian citizenship by virtue
of the constitution and that his
client's citizenship status was
"not a matter of discretion on
the part of the immigration
authorities."
The source told The Tribune
that the Negular family has
been incarcerated at the deten-
tion centre since Monday
morning and they have yet to
be released, although Mr Neg-
ular has pleaded his case to
the authorities.
The Tribunze attempted to
reach Mr Gibson for a
response. However, he did
not return the call up to press
time.
Mr Negular was detained
with his wife, his four-year-old
son and four- months-old
daughter.

the United Kingdom and
Colonies shall become a citi-
zen of the Bahamas on 10 July,
1973."
If it is established that Mr
Negular is in fact a Bahamian
citizen under the Constitution,
it is understood that he might
seek legal advise as to what
action he can take for false
imprisonment and detention.
Last month, lawyer Fred
Smith and the Grand Bahama
Human Rights Association
called on Immigration Minister
Shane Gibson to discontinue
what was described as "over
zealous" apprehensions by
immigration officers.
Mr Smith, GBHRA's presi-
dent, had filed a claim on
behalf of a Mr Lewis Alman,


alleging that on June 23 of this
year, his client was unlawfully
arrested and detained by
immigration officials.
The lawsuit was filed in the
Supreme Court against Minis-
ter-Gibson, the Director of
Immigration and the Attorney
General. Mr Alman is claiming
damages for false imprison-
ment, unlawful detention, dis-
crimination arid breach of his
constitutional rights. -
When defending his client's
position to the press, Mr Smith
said: "His position is no dif-
ferent from mine. I was born
in Haiti. My father was a
Bahamian, but I did not have
to file for any papers. I simply
became a Bahamian when the
constitution came into effect
in 1973."
Mr Smith told the press that

where they will await depor-

According to the source, it
was alleged that the arrest and
detention of Mr Negular and
his family were unlawful,
because Mr Negular is a
Bahamian citizen, having been
born in the Bahamas before
1973.
According to Article 3 of the
Constitution of the Bahamas:

ment," Mr Ingraham promised.
Former registrar general,
attorney Elizabeth Thompson,
echoed these sentiments.
"I think the state of Immi-
gration is in utter confusion.
What kind of message are we
now sending? There are a num-
ber of us out there with pending
applications for any number of
things...can this just be done
because of a personal friend-
ship, or what?
"The question now is: why
wasn't it done properly? The
minister was clear that this wcas
done for her in a number of
weeks. He stated that himself.
"Well, if that is the case, what
kind of due diligence could have
been done? It is relatively basic
to know who a homeowner is -
you ask for the conveyance, the
title documents.

"But if it is friendship, what
does it mean? Does a friend-
ship obviate the need for all of

Moss said: "If someone else in
fact owned this house, and the
house was the basis on which
she was given this status (per-
manent residency), that is egre-
gious, and it is a blatant error,
"I call it an error because I
cannot see someone being so
deliberate in giving her that sta-
tus if she doesn't own her home
because that is the basis for her
residency.
"But if she is pretending that
she is the owner of the house
when in fact she is not, then that
raises very serious issues in
respect to how she attained the
status of permanent residency,"
he said.
Mr Moss added that, in his
opinion, the threshold for
investors to be eligible for per-
manent residency should be lift-
ed much higher than the
$500,000 marker to at least $2
million to $3 million.

THE Bahamas Home and
Builders Show is to launch an
online builders' directory for
persons interested in home
improvement in an effort to
assist them to find reputable
contractors.
At a press conference to
announce plaus for the sixth
annual show, organisation
president Nikita Curtis
.explained that the company
saw a need to do this because
of the increasing number of
complaints and reports of neg-
ligence among contractors.
He said that while the Home
and Building show cannot reg-
ulate persons in the industry, it
can become a resource and
advice tool leading customers,
particularly single women, to
reputable contractors.
"This online directory will
include all parts of the building
sector, including contractors,
suppliers and others. Addi-
tionally, consumers would be
able to get online references."
The Builder's Directory will
be launched duritig the first
quarter of 2007.
This. year's- show will take
place at the' Radisson Cable
Beach Resort on October 28-
29 and is expected to attract

he said.

vendors in a venue he said is
the only one of its kind in the
region.

itis," he said.
."In recent times, global regulatory
focus seems to have been invioluntar-

improved enforcement of existing
internationally accepted regulatory
Principles -through international co-
operation."
Mr Deveaux said that, considering
this, conference attendees will focus
on co-operation, enforcement, gov-
ernance and standard setting.
The Caribbean Group of Securi-
ties Regulators was established in
2003 to create for securities regulators
in the region avenues to address cut-

Junior Sports Reporter
FOR the first time in more than 10
years, the Bahamas will participate
in the annual IFBB men's World
Bodybuilding Championships. .
A three member team, which
includes veterans Raymond Tucker'
James (JTay) Darling and Paul Wil-
son, left for Ostrava, Czech Republic'
today to compete at the 60th annual
IFBB men's World Bodybuilding
Championships and IFBB Interna-
tional Congress.
All three bodybuilders are all hop-
ing to deliver stellar performances
that will place them on top of their
divisional chart and will better the
Bahamas' position on the profes-
sional level.

en thi po esiona saus a /
Neither of the athletes are strangers
to high level competition, and they
all say that they are ready to strut
their stuff in front of thousands of


other bodybuilders.
Bahamas Bodybuilding Federation
(BBF) president Danny Sumner said
the world stage should prepare them-
selves for three of the best in the
Caribbean Region.
Sumner said: "This is long over-
due; so I am sure that all three of the
bodybuilders heading down are
ready.
"The Bahamas is sending three of
the top bodybuilders, they're no
stranger to competition. All the ath-
letes are fit so we are sure that we
can make it in the top at the compe-
tition."
Leading the team will be Tucker,
who has collected various awards on
both the local, Caribbean and region-
al scene.
Tucker, who admitted to research-
ing his fellow competitors said that,
even though the competition scale is


higher than the regional one, he is
ready to perform.
He said: "I've made all my prepa-
rations, right now I am only waiting
to showcase it at the championships..
I've competed at a number of com-
petitions on the CAC level and I've
also won a couple of medals on the
Pan Am level.
"At the world championships the
only problem that we have is judg-
ing. When you travel you usually
travel with a judge, but I don't think
we will have that problem this year
now that Danny Sumner will be a
part of the judging panel,
"This is one of the advantages we
have. Because I spoke to one of the
guys from Barbados who was there
last year and he was telling me that
you really need a judge from the
region who can relate. The problem as
most of the time you don't have that.


person there so this should help."
Tucker, now 45-years-old, who
mentioned that age is only a num-
ber, wiill be competing in thelwelter-
weight division.
~He said: "Even though I've com-
peted at a high level before there are
still some things that I needed to do
in order to prepare myself. Everyone.
knows that there are some things that
you nieed to do in order to prepare
for these major competitionps,/$o I
feel as though I've done my bes~t.
"It's no secret thiat these guys are in
excellent shape and I feel as though I :
am on top of my game as well. I am '
ready to strut my stuff in front of the
judges so I can bring home a medal
for the Bahamas."
Competition is scheduled to start
on Friday evening with the weigh-
mns. Prejudging will take place on Sat- .
urday with the finals set for Sunday.

Sigh of relief

as travel

documents

arrive at last

BODYBUILDING
By KELSIE
JOHNSON
Junior Sports
Reporter
AFTER a week of
waiting on travel docu-
ments, the three member
team scheduled to leave
for Ostrava, Czech
Republic, today were
able to breath a sigh of
relief, when they received
their travel documents.
The late arrival of tray-
el documents in the past
has forced the Bahamas
Bodybuilding F~ederation
(BBF) president Danny
Sumner to call off several
trips and this year he was
hopping that things
would turn out a little dif~-
ferent.
With tickets in hand,
Sumner received a call
from the Consulate
Office in Havana, Cuba,
that all the passports
should be in the Bahamas
with visas by the end of
the work day.
He said: "No one real-
ly knows what we go
through to get these ath-;
letes ready. This is noth-
ing new, we've been
through this before.
"We only have a limhit-
ed time to get these
t hings done. This year we
were able to get the assis-
tance of the Consulate
here in the Bahamas so.
that helped to speed the
process up for us.''
The annual Interna-
tional F~ederation Body-
building (IFBB) men's
World Bodybuilding
Championships are held
a month after the
Caribbean Bodybuilding
Championships,
which is also an annual
event.
According to Sumner,

ing is a month apart, the

The BBF had ratified a
team last year to compete
mn the championships, but
the travel documents
weren't ready in time.
Since the champi-
onships are a world wide
attended event, weigh-m
and registration for the
event is held days before
the opening.
The rules states that "if
an athlete is late for the
weigh-in and registration,
