president Robert Farquhar-
son, the union will respond
aggressively and may even
strike if government makes
good on its threats to disci-
pline BTC workers who
demonstrated two weeks ago.
Yesterday, BTC board
chairman Julian Francis said
that government could use
pay cuts or suspensions to
punish workers who used gov-
ernment vehicles to bring
downtown traffic to a halt for
about an hour.
In response, Mr Farquhar-
son told The Tribune: "If Mr
Francis or any member of the
board of directors makes any
attempt to violate the indus-
trial agreement, then the
BCPOU will respond aggres-
sively in accordance with the
Industrial Relations Act."
When asked to explain what
he meant by "respond aggres-
sively", Mr Farquharson said
that "the union and its mem-
ber could respond in a number
of ways, including a strike."
'Responding to Mr Francis'
announcement on Thursday
that BTC employees would be
disciplined after their strike
three weeks ago, Mr Far-
quharson said that according
to the industrial agreement,
"the company first must estab-
lish that there is violation of
the industrial agreement, and
after doing so, only then will
they have the right to take any
action in accordance with the
industrial agreement."
Affecting more than 900
Bahamas Telecommunica-
tions Company (BTC)
employees, company execu-
tive chairman Julian Francis
said Thursday that action
would be taken against
employees following the
recent industrial action.
BTC executives said that on
August 11 employees claimed
to have experienced simulta-
neous "mechanical difficul-
ties" with their vehicles.
This happened when a fleet
of BTC vehicles were driven
to Bay Street, and parked.

FREEPORT A Grand Bahama man was tak-

dence after more than $400,000 in cash was found
in his hotel room.
According to reports, police received a tip that a
man was in possession of a large amount of money.
Acting on the information, police obtained a
search warrant and proceeded to the Castaways

During a search of the room, officers discovered

a total of $471,153.00 cash in US currency.
The man was unable to give police a satisfactory
explanation as to how he came to be in possession
of such a large amount of money.
Chief Supt Basil Rahming said the suspect was
arrested and taken into custody for possessing cur-

The suspect and the money were flown to New

Storm's projected path

heading for Bahamas

Tribune Staff Reporter
THE projected path of
Tropical Storm Hanna took a
worrying lurch towards the
central Bahamas yesterday,
and with no land to impede its
development, could be an
extremely strong storm by the
time it arrives.
Forecasters note that
Bahamians will not have to
worry about any effects from
the storm over the weekend,
but they are still closely mon-
itoring its path as the storm
may be of some concern to the
southeastern Bahamas by mid-
next week.
Yesterday the storm was
passing the Leeward Islands,
heading towards the Virgin
Islands and Puerto Rico with
maximum sustained winds
close to 50 miles per hour with
higher gusts. Hanna is expect-
ed to strengthen into a cate-
gory one hurricane.
Basil Dean, Deputy Direc-

tor of the Department of
Meteorology, said the storm
is expected to gain category
one hurricane strength by Sun-
day, but computer models
show it weakening before it
reaches the southeast
"I think we will be okay
going up into the weekend
through Sunday, but based on
the forecasted track it seems as
though after Sunday, (Tropical
Storm) Hannah is expected to
take a more west course and
then further shifting more
towards the southwest. Should
that trend develop then the
southeast Bahamas could be

part of next week, I would
expect, by about Tuesday or
so of next week.

A second coral reef

assessment completed

A SECOND underwater
assessment has been completed
as part of the ongoing effort to
measure the health of local reefs
In 2007, there was a mini
Rapid Ecological Assessment
(REA) conducted off New
Providence, where scientists
studied the health of several
coral reefs.
Those scientists returned for a
more extensive study spanning
two weeks, where they studied
dozens of coral reefs around
New Providence and Rose
"We surveyed the benthos
[which is a biogeographic region

that includes the bottom of a
lake, sea, or ocean] and looked
at the coral, sponges, macro
algae, and fish populations in
the area," explained Ancilleno
Davis, who is the conservation
co-ordinator of the Blue Water
Project a Nature Conservancy
initiative which is partially fund-
ed by the Kerzner Marine Foun-
For this REA, scientists
received satellite imagery of the
New Providence and Rose
Island area which was then
divided into a grid.
Then, researchers randomly
selected areas in the grid with

hard bottoms, synonymous with
coral reefs, and visited those
Scientific co-ordinator for the
Atlantic and Gulf Rapid Reef
Assessment Programme, Judith
Lang, said during their assess-
ment, they dove for 10 days and
went to about three reefs per
"We've looked at the live
stony coral that has died due to
something like bleaching. We
measured the coral size and we
also did an estimate to deter-
mine how much of the coral
either died recently or a long
time ago. We also looked at
things like seaweed and inver-
tebrate animals that can over-
grow coral," explained Ms Lang.
Kerzner Marine Foundation
is a private, nonprofit founda-
tion that fosters the preserva-
tion and enhancement of global
marine ecosystems through sci-
entific research, education, and

community outreach.
The foundation is funded by
the Kerzner International group
of companies and is focused on
protecting the integrity of trop-
ical marine ecosystems which
are becoming increasingly
threatened due to overexploita-
tion and overpopulation.
KMF says it has pumped mil-

lions of dollars into protecting
and preserving the marine envi-
ronment around the world,
including niany projects in the
A major priority for the foun-
dation is coral reef conserva-
tion, as a recent report released
by the World Resources Insti-
tute has found that in the
Caribbean alone, two thirds of
coral reefs are threatened and
one third are vulnerable to
coastal development.
"It is challenges like this one
that has made it necessity to
develop strategic plans for pre-
serving-coral reefs," .said the
foundation ih-I-a" statement.
"REAs of coral reefs are a vital
part of this planning process.
The Kerzher Marine Founda-
tion, through the Nature Con-
servancy, the Bahamas Nation-
al Trust, BREEF, and other
local and international partners,
has been instrumental in fund-
ing these assessments in
Bahamian waters."
After visiting roughly 30 sites
around New Providence and
Rose Island, the data will be
compiled to assess the general
health of coral reefs in this area.
The scientists explained that
this exercise is similar to going
to the doctor for a check-up: just
as the doctor checks blood pres-
sure, heart condition, and other

Fetf0-r uniie


vitals; the scientists, are
checking the vital signs of the
The compiled data will be
available on the Atlantic and
Gulf Rapid Reef Assessment
website (www.agrra.org).
The information on- Bahami-
an reefs also will be compared
to reefs around the Caribbean
and the Gulf of Mexico which
have also had REAs complet-
ed recently.
Scientists say at this point
they don't want to give away the
results of their findings so far
because it's simply too early to
determine the ramifications of
the data.
Nevertheless, they continue
to tout the importance of this
exercise. The Nature Conser-
vancy's Ancilleno Davis simpli-
fies it this way: "Those coral
reefs are not only a tourist
attraction but they're home to
lobster and conch; delicacies "(
that Bahamians love."

pened to be in the area.
The officer gave chase and
the suspect was quickly appre-
hended, Mr Evans said.
The suspect, a 26-year-old
male resident of Mason's Edi-
tion, was arrested and is
expected to be arraigned on
formal charges as early as

Bahamian officers

graduate from a


preparedness course

TribUne Staff Reporter
SOUNDING the message
loud and clear that the
Bahamas must be prepared to
handle terrorism-related
crimes, 22 Bahamian police
officers yesterday graduated
from a United States-spon-
sored course aimed at improv-
ing their counter-terrorism
preparedness and reaction
Acting Commissioner of
Police Reginald Ferguson said
that he hopes the officers'
experience will form the basis
of a regional training pro-
gramme which the Bahamas
may be able to offer to their
Caribbean counterparts in the


The two-week major case
management course was
taught to the officers from the
Royal Bahamas Police Force
by officials from the US State
Department's Office of Anti-
Terrorism Assistance (ATA).
The training course follows
the donation of a variety of
anti-terrorism equipment to
the force from the US
Embassy earlier this year.
Officers involved were

ism by the Americans, one of

Third man appears in Court over

armed robbery of City Markets
A THIRD man charged in the armed robbery of a-City Markets
food store was arraigned in a Magistrate's Court yesterday.
".Jacob Woodside, 24, of Dannottage Estates, was arraigned
before Chief Magistrate Roger Gomez yesterday afternoon.
Police charged Woodside with conspiracy to commit armed rob-
bery and armed robbery. According to court dockets, Woodside,
being concerned with others, on Sunday, August 3, conspired to
commit the offense of armed robbery. Court dockets also state that
on the same day, Woodside, being concerned with others, and
armed with a handgun, robbed City Market, Village Road, of
$17,407.66 cash and $1,753.45 in cheques, the property of Bahamas
Supermarkets Limited.
Woodside, who was not represented by an attorney, was informed
by the Chief Magistrate that he is not required to plead to the
charges. The prosecutor, Sergeant Sean Thurston, informed the
court that Woodside's co-accused Ken Ewing and Deslin Nicholls,
both 25 and residents of Fox Hill, were arraigned on the charges in
Court 10, Nassau Street, on August 18.
The two men have been remanded to Her Majesty's Prison, Fox
Hill, and a preliminary inquiry has been scheduled for October 21.
Woodside was remanded to Her Majesty's Prison.
He was advised by the Chief Magistrate of his right to apply to the
Supreme Court for bail.
The case was adjourned to September 10.

Police Reginald Ferguson is
hoping the officers' experience
will form the basis of a regional
training programme.

ATA office, said the group of
middle management police
officers were the best group
he had "ever worked with."
At a ceremony awarding the
officers for their successful
completion of the training, US
Ambassador to the Bahamas
Ned Siegel said, "We cannot
put our heads in the sand and
say (terrorism-related crime)
can't happen here."
"A class like this is meant
to keep you at the top of your
game, and ahead of the bad
guys. Your training, your
skills, your preparedness,
these together can act as a
deterrent to terrorists, who
like criminals and other cow-
ards, are always looking for
soft targets," he said.
Minister of National Secu-
rity Tommy Turnquest noted
that the Bahamas suffers from
a "degree of vulnerability" in
light of its geographic loca-
tion, uninhabited territory and
vast expanses of ocean fac-
tors that make it all the more
important that the Bahamas
is prepared to handle major
crime and terrorism-related

"It would be a mistake to
conclude that a small archi-
pelagic state such as the
Bahamas has nothing to fear
from major criminal activities
or terrorism," he said.
Having assessed the course
content, Mr Turnquest said he
felt the skills learnt by the offi-
cers will be of "immense val-
ue" to a "proactive and mod-
ernising police force."


The training course covered
topics including elements of a
major case; theories and con-
cept of case management;
planning a major criminal
investigation; evidence man-
agement and trends in terror-
ism, and human rights.
Sergeant Julian Newbold,
one of the participating offi-
cers, said, "Based on what we

FOR ALL the talk of political change,
Wednesday's principal speakers at the
Democratic National Convention were pur-
suing something very different: perceptual
The Republicans have already aimed a.
torpedo amidships at Barack Obama: The
charge that the Illinois senator, not yet
four years into his first term, simply isn't
ready to lead America in a dangerous
Right now, certainly, the commander in
chief test favours John McCain. Which is
why John Kerry, Bill Clinton, and Joe
Biden were intent on refocusing the debate
on what matters most in foreign affairs:
If judgment supplants experience as the
measure of foreign policy fitness, then the
November choice looks very different.
McCain argues, and with considerable
merit, that he was right about the need for
more forces in Iraq and deserves credit for
taking what was then an unpopular stand.
And yet, such a tight focus misses the larg-
er foreign-policy forest for the troop-surge
McCain was just as clearly wrong in his
support for a war that hasn't borne out its
principal justifications, while Obama was
correct in his opposition.
Campaigning on foreign policy distinc-
tions isn't easy, of course, but Kerry, the
party's 2004 nominee, weighed in with a
tough and effective address. Once a close
friend of McCain, he went after his Repub-
lican colleague with a surprising vigour,
accusing him of Karl Rove-like politics of
"fear and smear."
"When we choose a commander in chief
this November, we are electing judgment
and character, not years in the Senate or
years on this earth," said Kerry said. "Time
and again, Barack Obama has seen far-
ther, thought harder, and listened better.
And time and again, Barack Obama has
been proven right."
Kerry's lead. example: McCain's enthu-
siastic support for war with Iraq and Oba-
ma's far-sighted opposition.
"When John McCain stood on the deck
of an aircraft carrier just three months
after, Barack Obama saw, even then, 'an
occupation of undetermined length, unde-
termined cost, undetermined consequences'
that would 'only fan the flames of the Mid-
dle East,'" said Kerry, who supported the
Iraq war resolution, but has since said he
regrets that vote.

The idea that judgment trumps experi-
ence was also one of the, central themes
Joe Biden hit in accepting the vice presi-
dential nomination. Noting that McCain
has said Obama isn't ready on national
security, Biden argued that Obama had
often been right where McCain was wrong.
"Now, let me ask you: Whose judgment
should we trust?" Biden asked.
"Should we trust John McCain's judg-
ment when he said only three years ago,
'Afghanistan we don't read about it any-
more because it's succeeded'? Or should
. we trust Barack Obama, who more than a
year ago called for sending two additional
combat brigades to Afghanistan?"
And despite McCain's rejection of talks
with Iran, "Now, after seven years of
denial, even the Bush administration rec-
ognizes that we should talk to Iran, because
that's the best way to advance our securi-
ty," Biden said.
For his part, Bill Clinton offered a former
president's important testimony about
Obama's grasp of foreign policy and
national security challenges as well as a
pointed reminder: When he himself first
ran, "the Republicans said I was too young
and too inexperienced to be commander in
Clinton also underscored Biden's role
as foreign policy adviser. "With Joe Biden's
experience and wisdom supporting Barack
Obama's proven understanding ... and good
instincts, America will have the national
security leadership we need," he said.
Now, a naive viewer might well ask, if
they harbour such deep qualms about.
McCain's judgment, why had Kerry want-
ed him as a ticket mate in 2004, and Biden
counts him as not just a friend but a foreign

EDITOR, The Tribune.
THE announcer on the radio
stated that we are going to have
to teach our children how to
resolve their conflicts in a dif-
ferent manner, if we are to see a
change in the climate of vio-
lence that is swallowing up so
many young lives. I agree with
him but I must add that our
children need to see the adults
set some kind of example.
Maybe it is just a problem
that we are not seeing or we
have gotten absolution from
somewhere, but the adults in
this country are playing. There
is an insidious nastiness that is
present among the older folk
that makes it very difficult for
the young to escape its effects.
Church, numbers and sweet-
heartin' are seen as "doin' ya
lil dirt" and seen as being
acceptable. Doing whatever you
can, whenever you can, to
whomever you can in the name
of putting food on the table is
also seen as acceptable as long
as no one is caught.
The young in this nation
have a front seat, to all of this,
some of them are also active
participants in the drama as
they have to pay with their bod-
ies to pay the bills of living; and
some of us think the problem
is "conflict resolution".
The government needs to get
the statistics together on how
many of our young people are
fending for themselves. We
need some statistics on the par-
ents who have reneged on their
responsibility to provide and
care for their offspring. We
need some statistics on those
parents who are of the opinion
that their children have been
placed on this earth to work for
them, these are the ones who
keep the bank accounts while
their kids are involved in all
kinds of stuff. We need statistics
on those parents, fathers espe-
cially who only show up after a
child has struggled on their own
to get somewhere; often blam-
ing a cold-hearted mother for
not letting him become involved
in the life, of one of his many
children. If we can put the stats
on a very large board or screen
and then stand back, maybe we
will get the bigger picture and
put the blame where it is sup-
posed to be.
The conflict is not with the,
child, it is with a very messed
up environment that us older
folks perpetuate as we continue
to act our shoe size and not our
chronological ages, taking up
much needed space and time
that belongs to our children by
right. Ours is a society where
too many adults are childish in
the way they go about this busi-

Issues with the

General Post Office
EDITOR, The Tribune.
I HAVE read several letters of complaint in recent editions of The
Tribune concerning the closure of some services at the General Post
Office because of the malfunctioning of the air conditioning system. I
assumed that the areas affected were basically Bahamas Customs, the
package delivery area and the BEC and National Insurance desks. Fur-
thermore it was my understanding that closure is at 2.30pm. That was
until today.
I happened to go to the basement area of the General Post Office at
about 2pm and found that the whole operation in that area was closed
from Ipm with the exception of BEC and National Insurance which
close at 2.30pm. Has it occurred to anyone that the persons who work
in this area are public servants who are hired to work from 9am to 5pm
everyday? These public officers have half-day off everyday. Is the
Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Public Personnel and the Sec-
retary to the Cabinet aware of this?
Is anyone aware of the implications of closing this area of the post
office at 1pm everyday? All incoming mail is received in the basement
and all outgoing mail leaves from this area. Mail is sorted in this area
not only for New Providence but for the Family Islands as well. Persons
who have written in before have complained that they could not collect
packages because the package delivery counter was closed. That is only
a small part of the problem.
The post office has never been noted for good and efficient service.
Can the whole country be held hostage because a few persons cannot
work in hot conditions? I am fully aware that public servants tre often
expected to work under appalling conditions, a circumstance that
must be changed. Can public servants just walk off the job because it
is too hot? After all these weeks why has the air conditioning system
not been fixed?
I find this to be astounding. Another astounding fact is that mail orig-
inating or coming through the United States to the Bahamas is routed.
through' Jamaica. Is there any wonder that the mail service in the
Bahamas is so slow?

Genesis Academy principal Mrs Melody Treco-Hanna

Minister opens

Genesis Academy's

second campus

Tribune Staff Reporter
GENESIS Academy, a school
committed to teaching gifted stu-
dents and praised as the "future
of education", opened its second
campus in downtown Nassau this
The opening of Genesis Acad-
emy's second campus should
inspire others to help build a bet-
ter nation with better citizens,
Minister of Education Carl
Bethel said.
As he opened the campus on
Dowdeswell Street, yesterday,
Mr Bethel praised the efforts of
founding principal Melody Tre-
co-Hanna, and the school's com-
mitment to educating gifted stu-
dents in 'mathematics, sciences,
technology and agriculture to
produce educated citizens able
to resolve food production and
environmental concerns in future.

The Christian private school,
which was founded two years ago
with 14 pupils, has grown to
accommodate 70 pupils from
kindergarten to grade six, along
with nine full-time and five part-
time teachers.
The new. school building fea-
tures six classrooms, bringing the
total number of classrooms to 12,
an 80-seat auditorium, a covered
lunch area, and sports facilities.
It is connected to the original
school building and is accessible
from Shirley Street.
Mrs Treco-Hanna said: "Gen-
esis Academy puts great empha-
sis on people-to-people interac-
tion and harmony. Of course, we
begin with ourselves, and so
pupils and teachers are much
encouraged to enjoy a wonder-
fully harmonious relationship.


"We rejoice today as we cele-
brate the acquisition and occu-
pancy of a new premises to better
facilitate the extraordinary
growth Genesis Academy is
Minister Bethel said the school
is redefining the future of edu-
cation through its "innovative-
ness" and its policy of enrolling
"gifted" students.
"Like Genesis Academy, we
must aim for smaller classrooms,"
he said.
"We must cater to our stu-
dents' interests and seek oppor-
tunities for them to specialise in
areas that assist them in devel-
oping into productive and well-
rounded citizens."
The minister divulged that
there are some new public school
programmes in place which iden-
tify students' interests and career
choices to give them a working
knowledge in their chosen field.
"I commend Mrs Melody Tre-
co-Hanna for pioneering this
school that will teach children
beyond rote and rituals, and
rather stimulate their ability to
think, reason logically and
express themselves with compe-
tence, clarity and creativity," he

ON THE same day that
residents marked the three-
year anniversary of Hurri-
cane Katrina's wrath,
another storm strengthened
into a hurricane miles away
and threatened to hit the
Gulf Coast once again,
according to Associated
Forecasters at the Nation-
al Hurricane Center said
Friday afternoon that Gus-
tav had grown into a Cate-
gory 1 storm, and remained
on track to strike anywhere
from the Florida Panhandle
to eastern Texas sometime
next week.
The news came only
hours after New Orleans lay
to rest the last seven
unclaimed Katrina victims.
A horse-drawn carriage
brought the bodies for
entombment at a memorial
site, and the mayor helped
guide a gleaming casket into
a mausoleum.
The ceremonies were
tinged with an awareness of
how far the city has come
since Katrina, but also a
trepidation about the possi-
bility of another storm.
"We look ahead to a bet-
ter day, as we also prepare
ourselves for another
threat," Mayor Ray Nagin
.said as he helped guide a
gleaming coffin into a mau-
Most other remem-
brances were called off as
officials scurried to plan for
Hurricane Gustav. National
Guard members were
reporting to armories, while
some nursing homes and
hospitals planned to start
moving patients further
inland and the state began
moving 9,000 inmates from
coastal lockups.
"I think God is reminding
us that on the eve of Katri-
na, God can bring nature
back," said Russell Honore,
the retired Army General
who headed up rescue
efforts three years ago.

With the start of the new
school year just days away, Mr
D'Aguilar challenged teachers
to treat illiteracy as an urgent
problem which must be cor-

He said they can do this by
identifying children in their
classes who are illiterate and
devising special reading pro-
grammes for them.
Mr D'Aguilar was speaking
to teachers at C H Reeves
Junior High School while
addressing a teacher's re-ori-
entation seminar on August 26
at the school off Robinson
"The public school system
must teach kids how to read
because it is so fundamental
to all other types of learning.
When kids come to C H
Reeves or any school for that
matter, those unable to read
should be put in a class where
all they do is learn how to read.
Why, one may ask? When you
seriously consider it, you can-
not teach a child science, social
studies, math, language or
comprehension when he or she
can not read," Mr D'Aguilar
He noted that reading is
essential to any society and its
ability to develop better citi-

Pointing to the many social
ills which result from illiteracy,
Mr D'Aguilar who is also pres-
ident of Superwash, said that
children who graduate from
the school system and are illit-
erate are for the most part
unproductive on the job and
often times find themselves
caught up in a life of crime.
In a passionate address, the
chamber chief noted that this is
not just an educational prob-
lem, but also a community one,
and he called on teachers to
invite more members of the
business community to part-
ner with the schools by spon-
soring programmes, providing
scholarships, and dedicating at
least an hour a week to teach-
ing a class.

"Our presence here is an oppor-
tunity to make a difference."
The workshop theme,
'Enhancing skills development
and sharing of lessons learnt to
mitigate the impact of HIV and
AIDS in the Caribbean'
addressed specific issues and
needs relating to the group
dynamics of the pandemic in a
Caribbean context. These includ-
ed people living with HIV and
AIDS, men-having-sex-with-
men, youth and gender.
Ian McKnight, programme
manager of the organisation
Caribbean Vulnerable Groups
in Jamaica, said the event was
significant in tackling the region's
most relevant issues.
"Stigma and discrimination is
one of the key road blocks to
ending AIDS in the Caribbean,"
Mr McKnight said. "Today there
is enough research and studies
about what must be done. What
is needed is immediate action."
Anisha Rajapakse, pro-
gramme manager for Human
Development at the Common-
wealth Foundation elaborated
on the foundation's response to
end AIDS in the Commonwealth
and highlighted the 'rights-based
approach' that guides the work
of the network in Asia, Africa,
the Caribbean and the Pacific.
"This common thread ulti-
mately makes individual mem-
ber efforts global in nature and
move beyond the tokenistic
involvement of people living with
HIV to ensure their active and
meaningful participation in
efforts to end AIDS."

BTC union in

strike threat

FROM page one

Their drivers then popped up the hoods of the vehicles and
explained to a startled public that they could not move them
because of "mechanical difficulties." Another vehicle blocked
the entrance to Paradise Island bridge.
The BTC vehicles blocked the main thoroughfare bringing
lunchtime traffic to a halt. From around 11.30am to noon, cars
waited, bumper-to-bumper from as far west as Arawak Cay to
as far east as Paradise Island bridge.
In defence of BTC employees, Robert Farquharson insisted
that the action taken on August 11 was in accordance with the
Industrial Relations Act. He explained that it was nothing
more than employees exercising their right of taking a lunch
He also said that any BTC employee who has a vehicle
assigned to him has the right to use that vehicle during his
lunch break.
About 600 employees in Nassau and 300 in Grand Bahama
took part in the industrial action, which BTC executives said
forced various company offices to close for that day.
Mr Farquharson told The Tribune yesterday that according to
the industrial agreement that outlines the terms of agreement for
employment, procedures in the agreement exist that guide both
union and employers. He said that all action taken by the union
- past, present, or future are in the best interest of BTC
employees, and for all workers.

about our normal business but certainly after Sunday it will
be worth the while to look at what happens with Hanna.
"By Tuesday we will be in a position where we would either
have to put up some watches or warnings for the southeast
Bahamas and if it is to affect those islands it should be by
Wednesday of next week."
Hannah's possible threat comes just days after Hurricane
Gustav churned through the Caribbean leaving dozens in Haiti
dead in its wake. The remainder of the hurricane season is
expected to be a busy one with eight named storms already.
"We are approaching the peak month of the hurricane season
which is September. So we can look for more and more of

Assume you're declarer at six

monds, which you win with the ace.
I low would you play the hand?
At first glance, it appears that
making the slam depends entirely on
a successful club finesse a
straightforward 50-50 proposition. If
East has the king, you make six; if
West has it, you go down one. How-
ever, if you take the proper prelimi-

chances to about 75 percent.
The proper method of play, after
taking the ace of diamonds, is to
draw two rounds of trump ending in
dummy and then ruff a diamond.
Next come the A-K of hearts and a
heart ruff, followed by a second dia-
mond ruff.
At this point, the dummy has no
more diamonds or hearts, and the
only red card in your hand is the
heart seven, which you now lead.
When West follows suit with the
jack, the slam becomes an absolute

This leaves West on lead in a no-win

diamond, it allows you to discard a
second club from dummy while ruff-

score the rest of the tricks.
The recommended approach
assures the contract whenever West

Dolphins win

third straight

pre-season game
Associated Press
returned from a thumb injury
in good enough form to make
a case for sharing carries with
Ricky Williams this season.
'Brown rushed 12 times for
47 yards and powered his way
into the end zone on a 1-yard
run to help the Miami Dol-
phins win their third straight
preseason contest, 14-10 over
the New Orleans Saints on
Thursday night.
"That's really what I needed
to see because I haven't seen
that," Miami head coach Tony
Sparano said. "I've only seen a
couple 'of carries and when
you're only getting a couple
of carries, it's hard to have that
kind of swagger. ... As he got
going, he felt pretty good and
it was nice to see him score."
Former Michigan quarter-
back Chad Henne also solidi-
fied his backup role behind
starter Chad Pennington, com-
pleting 16 of 20 passes for 137
yards and an 8-yard touch-
down to former Jets tight end
Sean Ryan.
Saints fans hoping to finally
see tight end Jeremy Shock-
ey's debut for New Orleans
were disappointed as coach
Sean Payton made the former
Giants star a late scratch for
the second week in a row.
Trying to work his way back
from a broken left leg last
December, Shockey will enter
the regular season next week
without having played a snap
for his new team.
"That's a hard one because
I'm really wanting to see him
get the live snaps, but there's
still that clock in his head and
in our head that says, 'You
know what? It's still not 100
percent,'" Payton said. "I think,
he's real close. We'll have him
ready this week to play and
that's the plan."
The Saints also sat out a
number of other regulars,
including Drew Brees, Reggie
Bush and Marques Colston.
Deuce McAllister, howev-
er, got his most work of the
preseason, rushing 11 times for
30 yards and catching two
passes for 2 yards. Coming
back from his second knee
reconstruction in three sea-
sons, McAllister appeared to
be victimized by poor blocking
on several short losses.
Still, the Saints' career-lead-
ing rusher looked strong on a
9-yard run and on a swing pass
in which he faked Andre
Goodman to the turf in the
backfield before surging ahead
for a 7-yard gain to set up a
"The old man's still got it a
little bit," said McAllister,
who's 29. "I've still got a cou-
ple tricks up my sleeve.... It's
just making plays, taking what

that's something that I have

zie. making his second straight
start after an offseason of reha-
bilitation from a torn right

He stopped a running play
for no gain, did not allow a
completion and nearly inter-
cepted a pass along the side-
The Dolphins' Williams,
who has played in all four Mia-
mi preseason games, carried
the ball only twice for 2 yards
as Sparano sought to give
more work to Brown, who'd
played sparingly in the first
two games of the preseason as
he comes back from a right
anterior cruciate ligament tear
in the middle of last season.

Giants expect to

succeed without

Stray and Co.

Associated Press

IN THE months that fol-
lowed their Super Bowl vic-
tory, guard Chris Snee didn't
spend time worrying whether
the New York Giants could
His concern was that they
had played into February, and
they were late getting back to
work after the parades, the
banquets and ceremonies in
New York, Washington and
around the country.
"We had the mentality that
other teams got in three extra
weeks of work, so we had to
catch up," the son-in-law of
coach Tom Coughlin said in
looking back on the last six
It's a blue-collar mentality,
but that's exactly what this
team is. It starts with Cough-
lin and extends all the way
down the roster.
No one person is bigger
than the team.
That should explain why
this group believes it can suc-
ceed despite the retirement
of seven-time Pro Bowler
Michael Strahan, the trade of
disgruntled tight end Jeremy
Shockey to New Orleans and
the loss of Pro Bowl defen-
sive end Osi Umenyiora to a
season-ending knee injury.
Each of the three was an
outstanding player and a
leader in his own right.
"Regardless of whether we
brought everyone back from
last year's team, it's still a dif-
ferent team," Snee said.
"We're building that right
now. I don't see anyone com-
placent or sitting on the fact
we were Super Bowl champi-
ons last year."
On the surface, Strahan
seems to be the one piece that
can't be replaced. He was the,
prototype defensive end. The
league's active leader in sacks,
he was just as good against
the run.
He also was the Giants'
undeniable leader. There was-
n't a game that started with-
out "Stray" getting every guy
in the right frame of mind
with his pre-game "Stomp."
Middle linebacker Antonio
Pierce will inherit the role,
although it's not new. He led
the Giants in training camp
last season when Strahan was
mulling retirement.
In the wake of Strahan's
decision to stay retired fol-
lowing Umenyiora's injury,
Pierce is the guy again.
"Stray was kind of the face,
but A.P. was the leader every
day at training camp," defen-,
sive tackle Barry Cofield said.
"He has always been a vocal
leader. We have plenty of vet-
eran guys. Stray left an
imprint for sure. Even with-
out him, I am still going to
envision him stomping some-
one out before every game."
Pierce thinks it's foolish to
say the Giants can replace
Strahan, Shockey, Umenyiora
and the players they lost to
free agency safety Gibril
Wilson and linebackers Kawi-
ka Mitchell and Reggie Tor-
"You have to move for-
ward, and you can't dwell on
it," Pierce said. "With the pre-
dictions and the opinions, we
could really care less. Those
are the same people that last
year told us we wouldn't do
Pierce added the Giants
have found replacements.
Justin Tuck has taken over
for Strahan. Mathias Kiwanu-
ka, who was drafted an a pass
rushing end, is back at that
position after a year at strong-
side linebacker.
Wilson has become an
afterthought with the devel-
opment of Michael Johnson,
the signing of Sammy Knight
and the drafting of Kenny
Phillips in the first round.
Free agent Danny Clark
has taken over for Kiwanuka
at strongside linebacker and
Gerris Wilkinson has replaced
Mitchell on the weak side.
Rookie Bryan Kehl is going

to get time backing up both
players in coordinator Steve
Spagnuolo's defense.
"I think from a mental
standpoint guys are even
more focused than they were
last year and ready to get off
to a fast start," Pierce said.

USA'S guard Kobe Bryant scores against Spain during the second quarter in their men's
gold medal basketball game at the Beijing 2008 Olympics irn Beijing, Sunday, Aug. 24,

SPAIN'S Rudy Fernandez, right, is fouled by USA's Dwight Howard as he dunks the bal dur-
ing the men's gold medal basketball game at the Beijing 2008 Olympics in Beijing, Sunday,
Aug. 24, 2008.

USA'S Kobe Bryant, right, goes to the basket as Spain's Rudy Fernan-
dez defends during the men's gold medal basketball game at the Beijing
2008 Olympics in Beijing, Sunday, Aug. 24, 2008. USA won 118-107.


Remember the scene in "Unbreak-
able" when Dunn (Bruce Willis' char-
acter) shakes hands with Mr. Glass
(Samuel L. Jackson's character) at the art
exhibition at Mr. Glass' comic book art
gallery? Well when Dunn touches Mr. Glass'
hand he discovers to his horror that Glass
was behind several fatal disasters, the last
being the train accident that Dunn survived.
He discovered that for the past few weeks he
had been helping this man, the exact type of
evil he had fought against his entire life.
Glass insists that the many deaths were justi-
fied as a means to find Dunn, and then
explains that his purpose in life is to find
Donn and be the villain to his hero. In a twist
of fate it was in the pantheon of great "What
Have I Done" moments in movie history.

During last week's Gold
medal game between the
U.S. and Spain, I had my
own "What Have I Done"
re-evaluation...I shook hands
with Mr. Glass.
A near 20 point lead for
the Americans had evaporat-
ed and Spain had trimmed
the once sizable deficit to
two with 3:12 remaining.
Then, the world's best
player stepped up on the
world's largest stage and
Kobe Bryant made an
improbable four point play
to give the Americans
breathing room and sparked
the 11 point win.
Mid-celebration, as the
ball passed through the net
and Bryant did his "finger
over the lip" gesture com-
pelling Spanish supporters to
be quiet, my emotions fluc-
tuated from jubilant to
I became Dunn at that
very moment, with Kobe as
Mr. Glass.
My affinity for the
Redeem Team forced me to
come to terms with the bane
of my basketball existence
On the four point play,
Kobe drew the fifth foul on
Rudy Fernandez, the dynam-
ic swingman from Spain that
NBA franchises have been
clamoring over for the past
few years.
Fernandez is set to begin
his rookie NBA season with
the Portland Trailblazers.
He's supposed to be the
second coming of Manu
Ginobli, and one of the main
proponents in the Blazers'
resurgence automatically
vaulting him into "One of
Renaldo's Favourite Players'
The Olympic Tournament
was my first opportunity to
see Fernandez play, outside
of the slew of YouTube clips
and he has to exit stage right

at the hands of Kobe Bryant.
So there I was in that
moment caught between
rooting for the bane of my
basketball existence, respon-
sible for my most harrowing
NBA moment ever (the Lak-
er comeback in game seven
of the 2000 western confer-
ence finals which left me
bedridden for almost a
week) and a player expected
to help restore the glory of a
team I have followed reli-
giously since I was in the first
Off topic...did you see
Rudy blow past the entire
Redeem Team defense and
posterize Dwight Howard?
Yeah, that's what's coming.
It was as if Kobe was set-
ting me up for the finale, the
minute the U.S. was in trou-
ble he took over.
A tough runner in the
lane, (Go Kobe!), an assist
to Deron Williams for three
(Go Kobe!), an assist to
Dwight Howard (Go
Kobe!!), the four point play
to foul Rudy out of the game
(Go Ko-wait..No Kobe!!)
As if being sucked into
rooting for Kobe wasn't bad
enough, having a "What
Have I Done" moment is
one of the worst things a per-
son can experience.
I wouldn't wish it on my
worst enemy...actually I
would, I have no idea why
people say that.
It's the feeling Joe Lieber-
man will have if Barack
Obama loses the general
Truth is, disliking Kobe
Bryant isn't getting the Blaz-
ers any closer to a champi-
onship, but it hurts to know I
was almost a quasi-Laker fan
for a few weeks.
The Blazers are on the rise
and Rudy Fernandez will
have his day Mr. Glass.
I'll be watching.

Top-seeded Ivanovic loses

in huge upset at US Open

Associated Press

EVEN for the mathematics
major from Clemson, it just did-
n't add up: How could someone.
who recently struggled so badly
she wanted to quit tennis stay on
the court with the No. 1 player in
the world?
Ana Ivanovic probably won-
dered the same thing.
In one of the biggest upsets in
the sport's history, the top-seed-
ed Ivanovic was ousted from the
U.S. Open, stunned by 188th-
ranked Julie Coin 6-3, 4-6, 6-3 in
the second round Thursday.
"Obviously, if you would ask
me at the moment if I'm playing
like a No. 1, probably not,"
Ivanovic said. "It's very frustrat-
ing because I know I can play so
much better."
Never before in the Open era
that began in 1968 had the No. 1
woman lost this early in the tour-
nament. Plus, all the favorites
had been breezing at Flushing
The French Open champion
seemed to be rallying in the third
set when Coin suddenly recov-
ered to win 10 straight points.
The 25-year-old French math
whiz screamed when Ivanovic's
last shot sailed out, then hopped
for joy and hit an extra ball high
into the stands.
"I don't know how I'm going
to sleep tonight," Coin said. "I
don't know when I will realize
Even after Ivanovic struggled
in the first round with an injured
right thumb that limited her prac-
tice time, there was no way to
see this coming.
Coin spent much of the year
playing in minor league events
and nearly got knocked out of

the qualifying event to merely
make. it into the Open. She
recently played so poorly she
thought about giving up the sport
and relying on her degree.
"I was thinking, 'Am I really
made to play tennis?"' she said.
Ivanovic quickly gathered her
gear and left the court, her hopes
of another Grand Slam champi-
onship dashed. She smiled after
the match, simply happy to be
pain-free, and did not appear
upset by the upset.
"I think what I experienced so
far is girls, when they play against
higher-ranked players, they have
nothing to lose, so they go for
their shots," she said. "Many
times they play matches of their
life. Not only in women's tennis,
also in men's."
Still, Coin couldn't have fig-
ured on it. Asked whether she'd
thought such a win was possible,
she gave a direct, honest answer.
"No," she said.
And when did she believe it
might happen?
"I guess when it was over," she
told the crowd at Arthur Ashe
Stadium, drawing a huge ova-
If there was any suspicion that
Coin was wavering, she steadied
herself by rallying in the third

jittery, hitting shots directly into
the net or way out.
Top-seeded Rafael Nadal
avoided a similar fate on the
men's side, beating Ryler De

Jankovic works overtime, makes 4th round at Open

Associated Press

Second-seeded Jelena
Jankovic won another sneaker
squeaker, playing 28 points in
the last game to finish off Zheng
Jie 7-5, 7-5 Friday and reach the
fourth round at the U.S. Open.
"You're not there in a pic-
nic," Jankovic said.
A day after top-seeded Ana
Ivanovic was upset by 188th-
ranked Julie Coin, the favorites
restored order to Flushing
Roger Federer, Nikolay
Davydenko and Elena Demen-
tieva won in straight sets. Novak
Djokovic played later, and the
night session featured Andy
Roddick,.along with No. 23
Lindsay Davenport taking on
No. 12 Marion Bartoli.
Jankovic came out full of
energy, showing no ill effects of
a bad left leg that cramped after
she played Wednesday. She
bounded back and forth and, in
her trademark style, often came
to screeching stops while doing
the splits to reach shots.
"As long as I'm doing the
split., that means I'm healthy,"
she said. "When I'm not doing
the splits, you know there's
something wrong."
"I'm not too sure about my
body if I go into a split, who
knows if I'll come back up?"
she said.
Still waiting for that elusive
big win, Jankovic is trying to
reach her first Grand Slam final.
She needs three more wins-

with Justine Henin retired,
Maria Sharapova hurt, Ivanovic
out and the Williams sisters in
the opposite bracket, this fig-
ures to be her best chance.
Jankovic had five match
points in the final game, which
went to deuce 11 times. She
needed a bit of a break before
her last serve; in her previous
match, she chided her opponent
for not being ready to receive
soon enough.
"I wish I didn't have any dra-
ma in my matches. I wish I
would win nice and in a simple
way," she said. "Who likes dra-
ma? Do you know anybody that
likes to get involved into tight
Jankovic needed more than
two hours to beat the 37th-
ranked Zheng after playing for
nearly three hours in the sec-
ond round. Plus, the Serbian
star was scheduled to play
mixed doubles later in the day.
Jankovic is one of six women
who still have a chance to be
ranked No. 1 after the Open,
with Ivanovic among them
despite her loss.
Coin pulled an upset for the
record books. Not since the
WTA computer rankings start-
ed in 1975 had a woman ranked
so low beaten a reigning world
No. 1.
Trying for his fifth straight
U.S. Open title, the second-

Even with Taylor and Thomas gone, Dolphins defense has plenty to celebrate

THE TASK: Sack the quar-
terback or make a big play.
Then, crouch low to the ground,
put your hands together and put
them in a circular motion to
mimic cranking an old car.
The move, named "The Fly-
wheel," is becoming an increas-
ing celebration by the Miami
Dolphins defense. They've had
plenty of time to practice it of
late, giving up just 24 points dur-
ing their three-game winning
streak to end the preseason.
"We haven't celebrated in like
two years so it's just all coming
out now," linebacker Channing
Crowder said. "We only won
one game last year, and we kind
of forgot about having fun.
We're just playing like we
should and doing it with some
attitude this year."
And without Jason Taylor
and Zach Thomas.
The departure of the two Pro
Bowlers has been no problem
for the Dolphins, who had five
sacks in a 14-10 exhibition win
against New Orleans on Thurs-
day night after five sacks against
Kansas City a game earlier. The
Flywheel was on display all
night at the Louisiana Super-
dome, with Miami allowing just
99 total yards to the Saints in a

Next up: Brett Favre and the
New York Jets in the regular-
season opener Sept. 7.
Can Miami's defense do it
when it counts?
"If we don't get complacent
and stay driven, we can be real-
ly good this season," Dolphins
defensive end Vonnie Holliday

said. "I'm not going to lie, we
have a lot of depth this season
and I don't think guys are going
to be able to roll over us like
last year. When guys got nicked
up last season, we didn't have
much behind them. That's not
the case this year."
The surprising Dolphins
defense has led Miami to three
straight exhibition wins for the
first time since 2000, when the

team was 11-5 and made the
playoffs. The Dolphins, coming
off an embarrassing 1-15 sea-
son, can only imagine such rich-
But that doesn't stop them
from aiming high.
"We've been getting better
and better," linebacker Akin
Ayodele said. "We got a little
swagger going. A guy makes a
big play, you get hyped up. You

want to go out and make a big
play. I don't think anything is
out of reach if we can keep get-
ting better."
The Dolphins defense has
been celebrating so much this
preseason, coach Tony Spara-
no was even asked last week if
the antics were becoming exces-
sive. He shot that notion down
"They were 1-15 last season,"
Sparano said. "Let them cele-

a staple of the Dolphins
