ready to sue if relative's rights violated-

THE family of Troyniko
McNeil is reportedly willing to
sue the Bahamas police force

rights are violated in any way, it
was claimed yesterday.

Taylor murder case is being
held in Florida on matters relat-
ed to immigration violations.
According to the source,
McNeil's family is becoming
increasingly concerned with
how the police are handling this
case. The family reportedly
believe that the police are being
too.myopic in their investiga-
tion by not looking at more
plausible suspects.
The source claimed that
McNeil had sprained his ankle
two weeks prior to Mr Taylor's
murder, and that he had one leg
in a cast and was walking on
crutches at the time the hand-
bag designer was brutally slain
in his Mountbatten House
"I just don't see how a man
on crutches could have com-
mitted that crime. And we have
the medical records to show he
was (injured) at the time," the

STRAW vendors are still waiting to hear from the government about its plan to replace the old straw market site
with a "green space". This plan was announced by Minister of the Environment Earl Deveaux, but many of the
vendors have rejected it, saying they want a new straw market erected on the site. They say they can no longer
stand the conditions in the "temporary" site at the end of Bay Street, where they have suffered under a tent for
the last seven years despite the promises of successive governments.

THE family of a man held in Fox Hill prison on a murder charge
are pressuring the police to present substantial evidence in court on
Monday or release him.
Marion "Marley" Smith, 30, of Pinewood, Nassau, was arrested

McKenzie in a drive-by shooting in Hay Street, Nassau, on Novem-
ber 22 last year.
Over the last seven months Mr Smith has been locked up in
Fox Hill's maximum security prison and appeared in court sever-
al times, but, according to reports, police have not yet been able to
produce sufficient evidence to substantiate a trial.

John Markoulis

announces his

retirement from

Hutchison group
Tribune Freeport Reporter

oulis, CEO of Hutchison Devel-
opment (Bahamas) Limited,
and president of Hutchison
Lucaya Limited, has announced
his retirement after nearly 29
years with the group.,
Mr Markoulis' retirement will
be effective from September 30,
Raymond Chow, group man-
aging director of Hutchison

thanked Mr Markoulis for his
loyalty and contributions

Raise EPA issue with your

MP, Bahamians are urged

Tribune Staff Reporter

The minister with responsi-
bility for the Economic Part-
nership Agreement has encour-
aged all Bahamians to raise the
issue with their member of par-
liament in the hope that MPs
will become more informed
about the agreement before
they have to vote on it in par-
"I would encourage each of
you who are constituents to go
to each of them and talk to
them and cause them to know
that on that day (on which they
vote) you will be expecting to
have an MP who is informed,
and clearly aware of the choice
and decision they have to make.
I think you should do that," said
Minister of State for Finance
Zhivargo Laing.
He was responding to a ques-
tion put to him by an audience
member at an EPA. town meet-

ing hosted by the Bahamas
Association of Compliance
Officers. The young man asked
how prepared and "how seri-
ous" Mr Laing thought most
MPs are about researching and
voting on the topic.
Mr Laing said that the ques-
tion was an "excellent" one,
adding: "I can tell you that the
members of parliament pretty
much reflect this society. There
* are those who believe that this
is what we ought and need and

have to do, there are those who
are hesitant and so forth. Just
like the rest of society there are
those who are going to go gung-
ho to try to know as much as
they can know and there are
those who may not do as much
as they need to do to know as
much as they need to know."
He added that while the gov-
ernment has taken steps to help
bring MPs up to speed with the
deal, it is each MP's individual
responsibility to ultimately
determine how prepared they
are to make their decision on
the matter.
The EPA is a trade arrange-
ment set to be signed between
individual African, Caribbean
and Pacific countries including
the Bahamas and the Euro-
pean Union. It calls for liberal-
isation of the trade in goods and
services between these coun-
tries and Europe and has been
the subject of growing debate
in signatory countries over what
benefit or detriment it will bring

Members of Nassau Chapter of

JUGS visit St Louis, Missouri

AS the Mississippi River
reached its highest point in St
Louis, Missouri at the end of
June, there to witness the flood-
ing were 10 members of the
Nassau Chapter of JUGS.
The JUGS (justice, unity,
generosity and service) mem-
bers were attending the'41st
convention of this, women's
charitable organisation which is
devoted to helping poor chil-
dren across 12 cities in the US
and in Nassau.
The International President
of JUGS is, for the first time in
the history of the organisation,
a Bahamian Mahalia Levarity.
She said: "The flooding was
very sad to see but while we
were in St Louis we were able

to present a four year scholar-
ship to a young lady 17-years-
old for her to attend Rust Col-
lege where she will major in
social studies.
"Without our help, the fur-
thering of her education would
not have been possible."
There are JUGS chapters in:
Columbus, Los Angeles,
Detroit, Atlanta, Miami, Mem-
phis, Baltimore, Chicago, Wash-
ington and Matteson, and the
organisation has a convention
each year in one of the cities
where there is a chapter.
Next year, the 42nd conven-
tion will be held in Nassau
where in addition to helping a
local charity, JUGS will present
a scholarship to a Bahamian

child to enable him or her to
attend college.
In addition, community ser-
vice awards will be given to
deserving members of the com-
Ms Levarity said: "Organis-
ing the Convention for next
year is a big task which will ben-
efit not only a young Bahamian
and our local charity but also
the entire Bahamas as there will
be around 200 people attend-
ing from the US chapters.
"We can use all the help we
can get."
She thanked Purity Balkery,
Bacardi, the Ministry of
Tourism and Bahamas Food
Packaging for supporting the

to each economy and society.
Carribean governments are
set to sign onto the agreement
within the next few months, but
parliaments in each will then
have to pass an Economic Part-
nership Agreement Act before
it has effect.
The deal has been accused by
some local critics of giving away
too much to Europe and the
Caribbean to save the duty-free
access that Bahamas' major
exports lobsters, rum and
polymers have traditionally
had in EU markets but stand
to lose if failing to join the EPA.
By his own admission, Mr
Laing said that the Bahamian
government only really "got to
grips" with the EPA negotia-
tions when it began to be lob-
bied by those in these industries
who were being pressured by
their European importers to
confirm whether or not the
country was going to sign on to
the EPA.
I This was around one and a


T t:

half years before the Decem-
ber 31, 2007 deadline for a
goods offer; about five years
after EPA negotiations began
Mr Laing told the town meet-
ing: "We had (a situation)
where some industries were
being affected, and they said
'help me', and others would not
have been affected ... If I can
help them and not harm the
others I've secured my whole
economy, rather than saying to
one part of it: 'You don't matter
because you're too small.'
"I think what has now been
crafted is (a deal) which pre-
serves the access which these
companies enjoy in the Euro-
pean market, creates opportu-
nities for new potential access
for Bahamian concerns inter-
ested in accessing the European
market and by the same token
also does not require us to
make any substantial changes
in terms of our current trade
posture in the world."

Dr Tyrone McKenzie, vice
president of Albany, said: "One
of the things included in our
agenda is promoting healthy liv-

among Bahamians.
"'The Bahamas is celebrating
its 35th birthday and we wanted
to be a part of that and also
show our commitment to the
Bahamian people as a good cor-
porate citizen. We saw this as
a great way to celebrate our
commitment to the entire
Bahamas, as this event also
extends to the Family Islands. A
total of $25,000 was invested
into the planning and organisa-
tion of this event, and we hope
to support similar initiatives."
The event had several starting
points Montagu, Goodman's

LONDON (AP) It's a case of all's
well that ends well.
Police have recovered a 400-year-old vol-
ume of Shakespeare stolen in England a
decade ago and worth millions of dollars
after a man walked into a library in Wash-
ington, D.C., and asked to have it authen-
Police in Durham, northeast England,
said Friday they had arrested a 51-year-
old man over the theft of the First Folio
edition of 1623, which scholars consider
one of the most important printed books in
the English language.
It was among seven centuries-old books
and manuscripts stolen in December 1998
from a display case at the Durham Uni-
versity library.
The university said at the time it would
be virtually impossible to sell the books to
legitimate buyers, and for almost a decade
police found no trace of them.
The mystery began to unravel on June
16 when a man brought the First Folio to
Washington's Folger Shakespeare Library
and asked to have it verified as genuine.
The man claimed to be an international
businessman who had bought the-volumtre
in Cuba. .
"We have people come to tis fibn time ?
to time with questions about books," said
Garland Scott, head of external relations at
the library, one of the worlds leading cen-
tres of Shakespearean research. "It's not
every day that someone walks in with a
First Folio."
Scott said library staff members soon
had their suspicions raised.
The book was largely intact, but the end
boards and some early pages which bore
marks that would have identified them as
the Durham copy had been removed.
"There was something about it that felt
a little off to us," Scott said.
Staff members at the library asked to
keep the book while they did research, and
their investigation soon confirmed it was
They told the FBI, which launched an
international appeal to find the man. Police
said a suspect was arrested at an address in
the English town of Washington, near
Durham, on Thursday.,

He was being questioned Friday while
detectives searched his home.
The book remains in a climate-con-
trolled vault at the Folger Library. Durhamn
Police said authorities felt it would be safer
there than in "an FBI warehouse next tc
piles of cocaine and cannabis."
Plans were being made to bring the book
back to Durham.
American writer Bill Bryson, the uni-
versity's chancellor, said its recovery was
"wonderful news."
"Like Shakespeare himself, this book
is a national treasure giving a rare and
beautiful snapshot of Britain's incredible
literary heritage," said Bryson, whose
books include "Shakespeare: The World
as a Stage."
"I'll certainly be joining the crowds who
* will be eagerly welcoming it home."
The First Folio was published seven
years after William Shakespeare's death
and was the first collected edition of his
Some 750 copies were printed, and about
a third have survived, though most are
incomplete. Only about 40 complete copies
of the book are known to exist, most in
museums or public collections.
The stolen copy was acquired by John
Cosin, former Bishop of Durham, and was
part of the library he established in
Durham in 1669.
The university said its estimated value, if
in perfect condition, was $30 million.
The university said it was hopeful of
recovering the other stolen works, which
include a 15th-century manuscript con-
taining a fragment of a poem written by
Geoffrey Chaucer, author of "The Can-
terbury Tales"; .an edition of "Beowulf"
printed in 1815; and a book of maps and
poetry dating from 1612.
It promised to keep the First Folio safe.
"Our security has been very significantly
reviewed and enhanced to the highest stan-
dards since the theft 10 years ago and we
are confident the First Folio will be safe
when it arrives back in Durham," said the
university's vice chancellor, Chris Higgins.

Discussing sex education

EDITOR, The Tribune.
SEX education or sexuality
education is a topical issue.
It is promoted as a necessary
course and programme to com-
bat the surge of sexual impropri-
eties, teen pregnancy and sexu-
ally transmitted infections/dis-
However, the implementation
of sex education in our schools is
not without special challenges, a
sensitive undertaking which
requires discernment, discretion
and discipline.
First and foremost, too many

* sex education programmes are'
primarily concerned with the dis-
semination of information with-
out due regard to spiritual val-
ues. Even abstinence must be
seen as a moral mandate, based
on Christian principles, if it is to
radically change the present
moral landscape.
Secondly, sex education cur-
riculums must be designed so that
only appropriate and sufficient
knowledge is given at every level
of child development, respecting
the background, age, composition
of various student groups. Here is
where relevant input from par-
ents and guardians is indispens-
able because in order to avoid
confusion the school and home
must agree on the basic tenets of
sex education.
Thirdly, those persons who are
charged with the responsibility of
teaching such a course must be
persons of proper character and
reputation, otherwise students
will make mockery of the lessons,
especially teenagers. Consisten-
cy between precepts and teacher
role-models must be a reality.
In fact, more harm is done

when educators' lifestyle conflict
with their philosophy of moral
Fourthly, the lessons on repro-
duction and sexual intercourse
must be taught and discussed in a
way that teachers don't excite or
cause unnecessary curiosity that
may lead young persons falling
prey to sexual experimentation.
Lastly, often times too much
attention is given to sexual inti-
Sex education is a broad topic
- sexual reproduction, contra-
ceptives, sexual identity, rela-
tionships and development -
that not only involves prevention
of negative outcomes but also fos-
ters quality interpersonal rela-
tionships 'by forming proper atti-
tude, knowledge and Christian
beliefs about sex and sexual iden-
tity, thereby producing young
people who are responsible,
respectful, respectable and above
all, reverent.

to take part in

PetroCaribe talks

Venezuela summit starts on July 12

THE Bahamas along with
experts from PetroCaribe mem-
ber states are settling in for a
summit of the group in Venezuela
with plans to consider co-opera-
tion prospects in light of sky-
rocketing oil prices.
Top level delegations of the 17
member states of the agreement
and invited observers will meet
on July 12 and 13.
Venezuelan Foreign Minister
Nicolas Maduro said that the
meeting will analyse the interna-
tional oil situation, as well as pro-
posals on energy, food, and other
areas aimed at strengthening the
co-operation mechanism of the
Delegates from Antigua and
Barbuda, Bahamas, Belize, Costa
Rica, Cuba, Dominica, Grenada,
Guatemala, Guyana, Haiti, Hon-
duras; Jamaica, Nicaragua, the
Dominican Republic, St Kitts and
Nevis, St. Vincent and the
Grenadines, St Lucia, and Suri-
nam have already confirmed their
In addition, Guatemala will
attend after having announced its
intention to join the bloc.
A ministerial meeting has been

scheduled for Saturday, with the
ministers presenting proposals to
the heads of government or state
in attendance, or their represen-
tatives. PetroCaribe is a contro-
versial oil alliance between sev-
eral countries and Venezuela to
purchase oil under conditions of
preferential payment. Launched
in June of 2005 by Venezuelan
President Chavez, the accord
allows members to buy oil at mar-
ket value while only paying a cer-
tain amount upfront. The rest is
paid over 25 years at one per cent
In addition, the members can

pay Venezuela some of the funds
back in much needed goods, such
as rice and sugar.
Detractors say that the system
is inefficient, as deliveries are
often sporadic, and will burden
member countries financially in
the long run as the value of the
export goods they often pay with
fluctuates constantly.
However, supporters of the
deal including former Bahamas
trade and industry minister Leslie
Miller say it is of huge econom-
ic benefit to less wealthy coun-
tries struggling under the burden
of $140 a barrel oil prices.

'legal threat'

source said.
The source yesterday further claimed that Bahamian police offi-
cers are currently questioning McNeil in Florida and have asked him
to give a blood sample to compare to DNA found at the scene of
Harl Taylor's murder. -
However, Acting Assistant Commissioner Raymond Gibson last
week dismissed published reports that officer-in-charge of the
Homicide Squad Assistant Supt Leon Bethel went to Florida to
question Mr McNeil and to collect blood samples from him.
"We can't go and question anyone on foreign soil," he said.
Acting Assistant Commissioner Hulan Hanna yesterday could
only verify that McNeil is still custody "outside of the jurisdiction"
and that Bahamian police officers are currently with him.
It is still not known when McNeil will be brought back to. Nas-
sau. The source claimed yesterday that the family is watching
the situation very closely and is willing to take legal steps if the
matter warrants it.
According to the source, McNeil had just picked up a new
passport from the Bahamian consulate office in Miami and was
preparing to travel back to Nassau when he was taken into custody
by US police.
"He and his father were going to fly back to Nassau on an
American Airlines flight that day," he said.
The source said that the family is questioning why Bahamian
police did not wait to question him when he returned to Nassau.
"The police, instead of just picking him up at the airport had the
US police arrest him," the source said.
The source claimed that arranging for US police to arrest McNeil
in Florida makes it appear as if Troyniko is on run, when that is not
the case.

Foul play not suspected

in the death of Chan Pratt

FROM page one
Mr Chan, known for his landscape paintings, was born to Captain
George C Pratt and Mavis Tynes in 1963.
He attended the College of the Bahamas and initially pursued a
career in banking at BITCO, where he was employed for three
years. However, according to the 'Bahamian art web site -
theconchpearl.com art remained Mr Pratt's first love and fol-
lowing his heart, he left the bank and pursued an art career, with
much encouragement from well known artist Eddie Minnis.
"Over the years Chan has become a prominent artist. His unique
style of painting, using the sombre pallet knife, brings his paintings
to life, giving them a three' dimensional effect. It diffuses light
over the face of the painting, creating a sculpted, three-dimen-
sional aspect, which enhances the realistic effect so loved by the
Bahamian public.
"This has placed him among the elite in the art community,
both here and abroad. Chan's work adorns the walls of art collec-
tors around the world," the art web site said.
In 1993, Mr Pratt presented a scenic painting of Harbour Island
to Prime Minister Hubert Ingraham, who in turn presented it to US
President Bill Clinton in Washington, DC.

Hanna-Martin lashes out at FNM Chairman

FROM page one
"In his assessment, the chairman seems
to have overlooked the fact that it took the
intervention of the courts at the instance of
Bahamian voters to stop the former minis-
ter and the government from proceeding
with local government elections in numer-
ous districts throughout the country in vio-
lation of the law," Ms Hanna-Martin
argued. "The former minister's resigna-
tion came only after a Supreme Court ruling
on the basis of facts that were brought not
only to his attention but also to the attention
of the prime minister and the parliamentary
commissioner well in advance of that ruling.
The Government's handling of this matter
seems not to be some shining moment in
our democratic history as the Chairman

seeks to suggest.
"In these nationally embarrassing cir-
cumstances and in the absence of
the true facts surrounding the former
Minister's resignation it would
be in the interest of the former Minister
that the Chairman not seek to cast the for-
mer Minister's resignation in any particular
Mr Ferguson was quoted in a local daily
on Wednesday saying Mr Collie's resigna-
tion "set a trend for other government min-
isters to follow" and that his party sup-
ported Mr Collie's decision. He was report-
edly a guest on the radio talk show "The
Way Forward."
Mr Ferguson was quoted in part as say-
ing: "Once Mr Collie made up his mind
and decided that he would resign his seat in

the Cabinet because of what happened
through the courts and he made his deci-
sion, I think we in the party understood
what his decision was all about and we sup-
port him in his decision.
"At the end of the day, that is what I
believe responsible Cabinet ministers will
do I take my hat off to Mr Collie for
standing at that level and saying I must
resign. He has set a trend for other ministers
in this government and other governments
to come."
Mr Collie resigned in the House of
Assembly earlier this month after a
Supreme Court ruled he and Parliamen-
tary Commissioner Errol Bethel erred in
their preparations for the local government'
elections. Subsequently, nine districts had
to postpone their elections.

Show evidence or release prisoner, police are told

FROM page one
Three other men, Steven. "Die" Stubbs,
Deshino "Notch" Wilson and Adrian "Pon-
da" Edgecombe are also in custody charged
with the same murder.
Mr Smith's brother-in-law, wholesale
manager Simon Cooper, said: "It seems to
be one excuse after the next. The. police
say they need more time, or they don't have
enough information.
"Each time he goes to court we are hop-
ing that is it, and that he will be released as
soon as it is clear there isn't a case."
Mr Smith, who has no criminal record,
turned himself in when police announced he
was wanted in connection with the murder.

The father-of-seven has been imprisoned
once before on a murder charge from which
he was acquitted, and was behind bars when
Mr Cooper first met him four years ago.
Mr Cooper said: "We met under unusual
circumstances, but he /has got a heart of
gold. He is a very family-orientated guy, a
romantic. But irrespective of whether he is
a good guy or a bad guy, the fact is that
they just keep putting off the case because
they can't get the evidence, because I sus-
pect, there is no evidence."
Mr Smith had to hand over his car, tele-
vision and other possessions in order to pay
the $25,000 legal fee to defence lawyer
Dionne Smith of Munroe and Lockhart.

in May. The thirty-year Morton Salt veteran was accused of recon-
necting the power supply to an elderly resident without the per-
mission of management after a disconnection exercise by the com-
pany, according to BIMAWU Secretary-general Jennifer Brown.
Morton supplies electricity to the island. The union said that it is
"elated" with the results of the vote in a statement released earli-
er this week. However, the union also emphasized that "no indus-
trial action" will be taken before meeting with the labour depart-
ment on July 21.
"I have encouraged both sides to continue talking to see if there
is some type of resolution that's amicable to both sides," Mr
Foulkes told The Tribune yesterday.
He said that the parties are within the cooling off phase that
occurs after a strike vote and at this time they "appear willing to
continue to talk."
Last year there was labour unrest in Inagua over potential lay-offs
resulting from a diminished salt harvest due to increased rainfall.
However, a settlement was reached between management and
workers, quelling the disquiet. When asked if he is concerned
about the repeated labour problems in Inagua, Mr Foulkes said: "I
think it is a relatively new union and the first and second con-
tracts are normally the most difficult ones. I think that over a peri-
od of time the relationship will probably settle down."

He said: "It impacts on the rest of the

have to take a food bowl to him and plastic

she asked. "That's not how a deputy leader should conduct himself."
Mrs Smith made those observations on July 4 during her Senate
presentation on the Bill for an Act to Modify the Provisions of the
Local Government Act in its Application to Elections for the year
2008 and for incidental purposes.
She also responded to comments made by Mr Wilchcombe,
MP for West End and Bimini in the House of Assembly.
"The Member as he was giving his Academy award perfor-
mance in that other place said that the Government led a team with
Urban Renewal into West End three days before Local Govern-
ment election with the intention to influence the election."
Mrs Smith said the group of people who went into West End was
there to look at issues that members of the community had indi-
The group, she said, consisted of persons from Urban Renewal,
representatives from the Ministry of Health and Environment,
Lands and Surveys, Local Government and the private sector.
She said some of the issues of concern at West End were:
The clean up of the conch shells on the bayside and addressing
the rodent problems.
Proper disposal of conch shells for the future.
Feasibility of vendors who lost their businesses on the bayside
and rebuilding on the same site.
Location of a marketplace which would empower the resi-
dents economically and provide an attraction for visitors' tWest
Disposal of bulk waste. /
"How could this town meeting make no sense it makes no
sense because the Member is not in charge of the project so he
decided not to show up for the Town meeting and encouraged
the residents who he influences not to come," she said.
"This is just another example of playing political games with the
livelihood of people; using your office to mislead people into
believing something is not good for them because you cannot
claim the project as your own; disgraceful!"
Senator Smith said that other town meetings whll be planned in
West End to continue talks with people in the community.
She also responded to remarks made by Mr Wilchcombe regard-
ing former Tourism Minister Neko Grant.
MP Wilchcombe described Mr Grant as an "abysmal failure who
dealt tourism a serious blow."
Senator Smith said in additional to the state of the economy and
prevailing conditions globally, Mr Grant did not engage in reckless
spending. However, she noted that Mr Wilchcombe, MP for West
End and former Tourism minister did just the opposite, acquiring
a building at a cost of $4.2 million that is clearly unfit for human
habitation. "When completed the Ministry's staff will still not be
accommodated," she added.
She also pointed out that during the last year of Mr Wilch-
combe's administration he overspent by $8 million without
approval. She said during the recent budget exercise it was dis-
covered that 12 persons were hired without financial clearance
and their salary bill was in excess of $500,000.
"And, of course, the sales office in Plantation, bursting at the
seams as it was severely overstaffed. I believe Minister Grant was
certainly by all accounts at least a good steward of the Bahamian
people's money," she said.

Guided tours planned for

The Garden of the Groves

Bahama's first and only botan-
ical attraction The Garden
of the Groves is once again
open to tourists and the gen-
eral public.
Erika Gates and Michelle
Hanson, operators of
Bahamas Parks, Gardens and
Recreation, announced that
beginning July 15, one-hour
guided tours will be available
to the public each weekday
between 10am or 2pm.
The Garden of the Groves,
which is owned by the Grand
B a h a m a P o r t
Authority, was founded by
Wallace Groves in 1973.
It was considered one of the
finest botanical Gardens in the
Caribbean before the hurri-
canes of 2004.
In November, 2007, the
Grand Bahama Port Authori-
ty began funding the restora-
tion of the gardens under the
supervision of Erika Gates

Great first half, shame about the second
Plot turn pulls movie into conventional territory


The Will Smith box office juggernaut
keeps on rolling in this occasionally clever
spin on the superhero formula.
Smith is the titular character, a down-
and-out, alcoholic, ill-mannered lout with
one redeeming feature: he has super pow-
ers that he uses to fight crime.
The trouble is, whenever the boozed-up
Hancock takes on the bad guys, he
inevitably" causes almost as much dam-
age as he's managed to prevent leading
to an angry public backlash against him.
But his life is about to change when
nicer-than-nice PR man Ray (Bateman
- who seems to be the new hardest work-
ing man in showbiz) patiently attempts
to re-brand Hancock as a more conven-
tional superhero.
What then follows is a sharp, witty half
hour or so as our reluctant would-be hero

Starring: Will Smith, Jason Bateman,
Charlize Theron
goes through the steps towards redemp-
Smith is on-form, Bateman is comical-
ly understated, and there are some nice
satirical points made.
But the movie has something else up its
sleeve, a turn in the plot that pulls the
story away from its strengths and lands it
much more conventional territory.
I couldn't help but think the first half of
the movie alone with some back story
perhaps would have been enough to
make Hancock something special.
Instead, what has all the makings of a
super blockbuster ends up being a mere-
ly mortal one after all.

Ambitious and

visually stunning


PIXAR are known for their continuous quality output,
but this latest effort is arguably their most ambitious and
successful film since the original Toy Story.
Set in a distant future, in which Earth has long been aban-
doned, the film follows a still functioning Waste Allocation
Load Lifter Earth-Class robot (WALL-E for short) as he
continues his daily task of cleaning up the junk covered plan-
et, unaware that his job is now futile.
One day, however, a spaceship briefly touches down and
leaves behind a hi-tech robot called EVE who WALL-E is at
first terrified of, then smitten by. But EVE is only on the plan-
et temporarily and, when her spaceship returns, lovestruck
WALL-E finds himself dragged along for the ride...
Visually speaking, WALL-E is incredible. The landscapes
of a crumbling, desolate Earth piled high with trash are tru-
ly stunning and, once the film moves to outer space, the scale
of the scenes really does take the breath away.
Visuals alone don't make a movie, however, but Pixar are
also masters at characterisation.
WALL-E, despite having virtually no features, save for a
couple of lenses, still gives a more convincing performance
than the entire cast of The Happening. I challenge you to
watch the lonely little guy desperately trying to get EVE's
attention without pretending to have something in your eye.
So there you have it Pixar, even by their own high stan-
dards, have outdone themselves. How will they top this one?

IN THIS IMAGE released by Disney/Pixar Animation Studios, ag
scene from the animated film, "WALL-E." is shown. Jerry Herman, .
composer of the Tony-winning musical "Hello, Dolly!" had licensed a
songs from the 1964 show to the Pixar masterminds, but he S
had no idea that his music and lyrics would factor so promi- &.
nently in the storyline of the sci-fi robot romance.

The CFA Society of the

Bahamas names 2008 CFA

scholarship recipients

FIVE young women from
Nassau were awarded schol-
arships to pursue certification
under the Chartered Finan-
cial Analyst Programme.
Jobina Bain, Carlene Carey,
Florence Green, Jessica
Sawyer and Fiona Sirra were
selected by the CFA Society
of the Bahamas (CFASB), a
local non-profit organisation
for financial advisors.'
The CFA charter is the only
globally recognized credential
for investment analysis and
management. The programme
sets a globally recognized stan-
dard for measuring the com-
petence and integrity of finan-
cial analysts, portfolio man-
agers'and investment advis-
SMore than 95,000 invest-
ment professionals in 134
nations and territories hold
the CFA charter.
The CFASB's scholarship
allowed the five women to
take the CFA exam for a
reduced registration and
enrollment fee of $220. Can-
. didates normally pay up to
$1,780 to take the exam,
depending on when they reg-
ister and where they live.
"More and more investment
professionals are seeking the
CFA charter as a confirma-
tion to clients and employers
that their investment knowl-
edge and ethics meet the high-
est standards, no matter where
in the world they practice,"
said Kristina Fox, CFASB
president. "As a member of
The CFA Institute, we are
pleased to offer financial assis-
tance to these outstanding
candidates who are commit-
ted to pursuing this prestigious
designation." ,

Kristina Fox

istered the exams simultane-
ously at 180 test centres in 89
countries in June. Candidates
for the CFA designation must
pass a series of three six-hour
exams over at least three
years. Each of the three exam-
inations typically requires can-
didates to spend 250 to 300
hours in study preparation.
Candidates take, on aver-
age, a little more than four
years from initial enrollment
to the time they complete all
requirements for the CFA
designation. The exams cov-
er issues and topics that invest-
ment professionals encounter
in their day-to-day practice,

such as ethical and profes-
sional standards, financial
statement analysis and port-
folio management.
But passing the exams is not
the only requirement to
become a CFA charterhold-
er. Candidates also must agree
to abide by the CFA Insti-
tute's Code of Ethics and
Standards of Professional
Conduct and have at least
three years' experience in the
investment field before they
earn the right to use the CFA
designation after their names..
With an overall pass rate of
42 per cent, some 8,669 candi-
dates passed the third and
final exam last year.
That brings the number of
CFA charterholders world-
wide to more than 95,000,
including 55 in The Bahamas.
CFA Institute continues to
award additional charters
weekly as candidates who
have passed all three exams
meet all other requirements,
including the completion of at
least three years of profes-
sional investment experience.
To apply for a CFASB
scholarship, candidates must
belong to the CFASB or be a
fourth-year or graduate stu-
dent at a college or university
within 200 miles of the
Bahamas. Candidates must
have earned a bachelor's
degree or equivalent by Sep-
tember of the year they take

Colombian rebel group blames guards for losing hostages

BOGOTA, Colombia

Colombian rebels on Friday
blamed two guerrillas who were
guarding hostages for the suc-
cess of a rescue mission by the
military that freed three U.S.
defense contractors, a former
presidential candidate and 11
others. The Rev'olutionary
Armed Forces of Colombia,
Latin America's last remaining

major rebel army, said "the
escape of the 15 prisoners of
war" on July 2 "was a direct
consequence of the despicable
conduct of Cesar and Enrique,
who betrayed their revolution-
ary commitment."
Military intelligence agents
freed 15 rebel-held hostages -
including French-Colombian
politician Ingrid Betancourt -
by posing as aid workers on a
mock humanitarian mission that

rebels were told Would ferry
their hostages by helicopter to
another camp for talks on a
prisoner swap.
Colombian authorities say
Cesar and Enrique Gafas,
whose legal names are Gerardo
Aguilar and Alexander Farfan,
boarded the helicopter only to
be overpowered and arrested.
The FARC's statement,
signed July 5, appeared Friday
on the Web site of the Bolivar-
ian Press Agency, which usual-
ly carries rebel commentaries. It
did not further explain the
Cesar and Enrique are among
11 suspects indicted in Wash-
ington in September on charges
of conspiracy to provide sup-
port to a foreign terrorist orga-
The two also face charges of
hostage-taking and terrorism.
The United States is seeking
their extradition. The FARC
also announced Friday that it

continues to pursue an agree-
ment to swap hostages for
imprisoned rebels "independent
of whatever political or military
confrontation where there are
victories and reversals."
Colombia's government says
the FARC still holds, about 700
hostages for political leverage
and ransom. Rebels-had offered
to swap 25 high-value captives
for imprisoned guerrillas, but
the July 2 rescue robbed them
of their top bargaining chips.
Colombian congressman
Mauricio Lizcano, son of rebel-
held hostage Oscal Tulio Liz-
cano, saw the FARC statement
as a positive development.
"The FARC maintain a will-
ingness to reach a humanitarian
accord," he said. "It looks like
the FARC will not retaliate
against those who are still kid-
napped. ... In today's statement,
the FARC do not say anything
about reprisals against the kid-

Sheniqua 'Q'
Ferguson con-
tinued her fairy
tale season on
the international athletic scene
with another medal at the 12th
IAAF World Junior Champi-
onships in Bydgoszcz, Poland.
After helping the Bahamas
women's 4 x 100 metre relay
team advance to the final with
a national junior record yes-
terday, Ferguson clocked 23.24
seconds to add the gold medal
to the bronze she won iu the
100m on Independence Day.
The 18-year-old, who just
completed her freshman year
at Southwest Mississippi Com-
munity College as the double
sprint champion at the
NJCAA Championships, led a
Caribbean sweep of the half-
lapper as Meritzer Williams of
St Kitts finished second in
23.40, followed by Janelle Red-
head of Grenada in 23.52.
It was only the fourth medal
won by the Bahamas since the
inception of the championships
in 1986. But it was the first
time that any athlete has dou-
bled and also had a chance to
complete a sprint hat trick at
the championships.


Disappointed that the gold
slipped aa\ from her in the
century, Ferguson told the
international press that she felt
\ indicated after her \ ictor.
"Thank God, I finally% \%on
a (gold) medal." she was quot-
ed as saying on the IAAF web-
site. "I wanted to win the gold
after m\ disappointed bronze
medal in the 10tmn."

turn up the heat

at Golden Gala

Senior Sports Reporter
WITH the 2008 Olympic Games fast approaching, Bahamian
sprinter Derrick Atkins (left) and quarter-miler Chris 'Bay'
Brown (right) turned up the heat in their respective events at the
Golden Gala in Rome yesterday.
In the men's 100m, World Championships' silver medalist
Derrick Atkins turned in a second place finish as he crossed the
line in a dead heat with Portugal's Francis Obikwelu.
Both were clocked in 10.04 seconds, but Obikwelu was award-
ed the victory and Atkins had to settle for second. Jamaican
Nesta Carter rounded out the top three in 10.05.
Atkins, who has now accumulated a total of 16 points on the
Grand Prix circuit, advanced to the final after running 10.14 for
fourth place in the last of two
heats that was won by Kim
Collins of St Kitts in 10.07. SEE page 12

BOA names Olympians for boxing, swimming and tennis

Senior Sports Reporter
THE Bahamas Olympic Association
yesterday named a seven-member team
of athletes to compete in boxing, swim-
ming and tennis for the 2008 Olympic
Games in Beijing, China, next month.
However, Livingstone Bostwick,
BOA's assistant secretary and team
manager for Beijing, said they are still
awaiting the list of athletes from track
and field.
"There are a number of athletes who
have qualified," Bostwick said during a
press conference Friday at Nassau
Yacht Club. "But we don't know if they
are going to be the same athletes that
they will name."
In any event, Bostwick said whoev-
er's name is submitted to the BOA,
they will have to first be ratified before
they are named.
The team should be submitted to the
BOA by July 8, but Bostwick said the
whosoever have been in contact with
them, apologising for their delay.
While they wait for the list, which
was expected to be submitted Friday,
newly elected president Rev Enoch
Backford said the Bahamas will be rep-
resented by the four disciplines at the
games. August 8-25.
Traveling along with Bostwick in the
official capacity are Vincent Wallace-
Whitfield, the Chef de Mission and
team attach, Sporting Ambassador

Thomas A Robinson and press attache,
Fred Sturrup.
BOA's vice president Harcourt 'Rip'
Rolle will be traveling as the represen-
tative for Back'ford, who will not be
attending the games.
The seven athletes named by Bost-
wick have either qualified with the B
standard or were selected based on the
criteria set by their governing bodies
for their disciplines.
In the case of boxing, Taureano
'Reno' Johnson was selected after he
qualified at the Olympic trials. He is
the only Bahamian to have qualified.
Andre Seymour will travel as the

manager/coach, assisted by Prince Fer-
All four swimmers have qualified by
attaining the B standard. They are Jere-
my Knowles, Vereance Burrows, Alana
Dillette and Arianna Vanderpool-Wal-
And in tennis. veteran Mark Knowles
and Devin Mullings have qualified to
compete in doubles only. They achieved
the feat by the rankings set by the Inter-
national Tennis Federation.
"We are excited about these teams as
we go into these games and we know
that the teams are compact and can all
make a significant impact to the overall

performances of the Bahamas team as
it did in the past," Bostwick said.
Additionally, two athletes have once
again been selected by the BOA to par-
ticipate in a youth camp. They are Eri-
ca Rahming, taking part in judo, and
Hillary Deveaux in swimming.
The camp for boys and girls between
the ages of 16-18 will feature more than
200 countries.
"I'm sure they will enjoy that experi-
ence and make some long lasting
friendships," said Roscoe Davies, vice
president of the BOA.
According to Harcourt Rolle, who is
working on the fund-raising commit-
tee, it's estimated that it will cost the
BOA some $200,000 to send the team
off to the games.
As usual, Rolle said, they are trying
to secure funding from the general pub-
lic, but because of the political climate,
it has been rather difficult for them to
get the necessary support that they have
gotten in the past.
He was referring to the election saga
that the BOA has experienced since
November, 2007 when they attempted
to hold their election of officers.
"We have received a very substan-
tial donation from the Chinese com-
munity of some $20,000, which will go a
long way in assisting us," Rolle said.
"We are hoping that others in the com-
munity will get on board."

slaps ban

on dog


cuisine is being sent to the dog-
house during next month's Bei-
jing Olympic Games.
Dog meat has been struck
from the menus of officially
designated Olympic restau-
rants, and Beijing tourism offi-
cials are telling other outlets
to discourage consumers from
ordering dishes made from
dogs, the official Xinhua News
Agency reported Friday.
Waiters and waitresses
should "patiently" suggest oth-
er options to diners who order
dog, it said, quoting city
tourism bureau Vice Director
Xiong Yumei.
Dog, known in Chinese as
"xiangrou," or "fragrant
meat," is eaten by some Chi-
nese for its purported health-
giving qualities.
Beijing isn't the first
Olympic host to slap a ban on
the dish.
South Korea banned dog
meat during the 1988 Seoul
Olympics by invoking a law
prohibiting the sale of "foods
deemed unsightly." After the
Olympics, the ban was not
strictly enforced.
Dog meat is also eaten in
some other Asian countries,
including Vietnam, the Philip-
pines and Laos.

Olympic swimmer

has testicular cancer

AP National Writer
ATLANTA (AP) Olympic swim-
mer Eric Shanteau is heading to Bei-
jing with a devastating diagnosis: He
has cancer.
In an exclusive interview with The
Associated Press, Shanteau said he
learned just a week before the
Olympic trials in Omaha, Neb., that
he has testicular cancer. His doctors
cleared him to compete in that meet
and he surprisingly made the team in
the 200-meter breaststroke, finishing
second ahead of former world-record
holder and heavy favourite Brendan
"If I didn't make the team, the deci-
sion would have been easy: Go home
and have the surgery," Shanteau said.
"I made the team, so I had a hard deci-
sion. But, by no means am I being stu-
pid about this."
Although Shanteau's doctors have
advised him to have surgery now, he's
planning to put it off until after Beijing
because he doesn't want to disrupt his
lifelong goal. The 24-year-old Geor-
gia native will be monitored closely
over the next month and vows to drop
out of the Olympics if there's any sign
the cancer is spreading.
"I was sort of like, 'This isn't real.
There's no way this is happening to
me right now,'" Shanteau said.
"You're trying to get ready for the
Olympics and you just get this huge

men's 200m Breaststroke heat at the World Swimming Championships in Melbourne,

bomb dropped on you."
Shanteau stressed he's not willing
to risk his life just to swim in his first
Olympics. But, after considering the
benefits of immediate treatment, he
decided to put off surgery because it
would keep him out of the water for at
least two weeks, ruining his Beijing
Shanteau noticed an abnormality
and was finally persuaded by his girl-
friend to see a doctor. At his initial
examination, he was told it was prob-
ably nothing more than a benign cyst.
But an ultrasound showed the possi-
bility of something more sinister, so

he was sent to a specialist.
On June 19, exactly one week before
he was scheduled to leave for the trials,
Shanteau received the devastating
"It almost numbed me," he said. "I'll
remember that day for the rest of my
life. Talk about a life-changing expe-
rience. That's as big a one as you can
have, I think. You're changed for the
rest of your life. The few people I've
talked to who've gone through this -
and they're all much, much older than
I am say I'll know that even more in,
10 years."
Luckily for Shanteau, the doctors

determined his cancer was treatable
and had not spread, so it wouldn't be a
risk to compete in the Olympic trials.
If everything had gone according to
script, Shanteau would have already
gone through surgery and be on the
road to recovery. But the improbable
happened in the 200 breaststroke,
where Hansen considered a lock to
make the team faded badly on the
final lap. Scott Spann powered by to
win the race, and Shanteau passed
Hansen as well to claim the second
spot on the team.
Shanteau was going to the Olympics.
Surgery would have to wait.
"A lot of people kept asking me
after that race, 'What was going on?
We thought we would get a little more
reaction out of you,'" he said. "It kind
of put damper on things."
Only a few close friends and family
knew about Shanteau's condition
before the Olympic trials. He decided
to go public with his story because he
hopes to inspire others with cancer.
His camp already has heard from
the agent of Lance Armstrong, who
overcame the same disease and won
the Tour de France seven straight
"Lance's agent told my coaches that
I'm the closest thing to Lance Arm-
strong that there is on the planet right
now," Shanteau said. "If I can have a
fraction of the impact that he's had,
just a tiny little bit, then I think what
I'm going through will be good."

Sudoku Puzzle
Sudoku is a number-placing puzzle based on a 9x9 grid with
several given numbers. The object is to place the numbers 1 to
9 in the empty squares so the each row, each column and each
3x3 box contains the same number only once. The difficulty
level of the Conceptis Sudoku increases from Monday to

Best described as a number crossword, the task in Kakuro is to
fill all of the empty squares, using numbers 1 to 9, so the sum of
each horizontal block equals the number to its left, and the sum
of each vertical block equals the number on its top. No number
may be used in the same block more than once. The difficulty
level of the Conceptis Kakuro increases fr6m Monday to Sunday.

Contract Bridge

Bidding Quiz

You have the following hand, nei-
ther side vulnerable:
4 874 V 5 Q83 + AK9762
1. Your partner opens One
Notrump, and your right-hand oppo-
nent bids Two Hearts. What would
you bid?
2. Your partner opens One Spade,
and you respond Two Clubs. Your
partner then bids Two Spades. What
would you bid now?
3. Your left-hand opponent opens
Three Hearts, which your partner
doubles, and the next player passes.
What would you bid?
4. Your partner opens One Spade,
and you respond Two Clubs. Your
partner then bids Two Hearts. What
would you bid now?

1. Three notrump. You can't be
sure this is the best contract, but the
odds favor making three notrump.
Most players treat three clubs in this
situation as a nonforcing competitive
bid, and it would therefore be unwise
to run the risk of' partner's passing
s\ith a hand likely to produce game at
Partner is a strong favorite to have
at least one heart stopper, and once
this is granted, the best chance for
game lies in notrunip. Five clubs
could be a better contract than three
notrump, but there is no way of
exploring that possibility without

bypassing the notrump game.
2. Four spades. You have only
nine points in high cards, but game is
nevertheless likely given partner's
spade rebid and the added value of
your singleton heart. To merely
invite partner to go on by bidding
three spades is too pessimistic a view
to take. It is unlikely partner will lose
four tricks opposite this hand.
3. Five clubs. You can't afford to
bid only four clubs because you
would do that with a much \weaker
hand. The best way of showing your
values is by jumping to five clubs,
which just about represents what you
If partner passes, you will probably
make just five clubs; if he raises to
six, you will probably make that also.
The trap to avoid is four clubs, which
would not do your hand justice.
4. Two spades. Partner is most
likely to have five spades and four
hearts, or five spades and five hearts.
Since you have a definite preference
for spades, you should let partner
know that right now. Partner already
knows you have enough points to
respond initially on the two-level, so
there is no need to do anything more
than bid two spades.
Note the difference in approach as
compared with problem No. 2, where
partner almost surely has six spades
and did not bid a second suit.

Tomorrow: Careful play saves the day.

gios, Cove Village. It is an
official local chapter of the
Caribbean College of Fami-
ly Physicians (CCFP) a mem-
ber of the World Organiza-
tion of National Colleges.
The organization's Mission:
To establish and maintain stan-
dards of practice for physicians
in primary care and to empow-
er our patients to become
active partners in their care.
The association consists
mainly of Family Physicians
dedicated to the advancement
of health care in The Bahamas,
but is also opened to all physi-
cian practitioners involved in
primary care practice inclusive
of General Practitioners and
Public Health Practitioners.
Our organization works in
close collaboration with the
CCFP which endorses the Dec-
laration of Port-of-Spain of
September 15th, 2007 'Uniting
to Stop the Epidemic of Chron-
ic Non-Communicable Dis-
eases' as well as our local
'Healthy Lifestyle Initiative'.
We feel that there are many
areas in which we can make a
difference and improve health
outcomes in our Bahamas.
