* Gas pump attendants

chase masked, armed

bandits down the street


A BRAZEN daylight rob-.
bery at an Esso On the Run gas
station yesterday afternoon end-
ed, with gas pump attendants
chasing masked and armed rob-
bers down the street as they
tried to escape in a waiting car.
The robbery was the second
known criminal incident at an
Esso On the Run station in
three days the last one
involving a young man who suf-
fered non-fatal stab wounds at
the station on Carmichael Road
and Faith Avenue Wednesday
night.
According to witnesses, two
masked men pulled up to the
gas station at around 2.15pm


PRIME Minister Hubert Ingra-
ham addressed the 63rd United.
Nations General Assembly in
New York yesterday.
Touching on a number of issues
including the Bahamas' commit-
ment to the stabilization of Haiti,
and the Bahamas' call for an end
to the continued shipment of
nuclear waste through our waters,
Mr Ingraham also spoke on the
need for a "global response" to
the negative effects of climate
change.
"The increasing number and
fury of hurricanes passing through
the Caribbean are, I believe, yet
another indication of the nega-
tive effects of global climate
change. These hurricanes have
had a devastating effect on a
number of countries in our sub-
region this year alone.
"They pose a singularly pecu-
liar threat to our countries as they
are capable, literally in one fell
swoop, of wiping out all the devel-
opmental gains we have achieved
over many years of hard work. In
this vein, I renew the call for a
global response to what has been
described as a 'development
emergency'," he said.
Mr Ingraham said that we must
not only act to achieve the Mil-
lennium Development Goals
(MDGs), but also to meet the
goals of the broader UN Devel-

their waiting vehicle, entered
the premises and demand cash.
They fired a shot into the ceil-
ing before robbing customers
of cash and jewellery.
The owner of the store and
his daughter locked themselves
in a back room. No one was
injured during the robbery,
however while making their get-
away the criminals swerved into
the main street causing other
vehicles already on the road to
be involved in an accident. It is
unknown if anyone was injured.

Wulff Road police station


comes under fire again


* By CHESTER ROBARDS
Tribune Staff Reporter
ANOTHER citizen upset over
the indifference shown them by
officers at the Wulff Road police
station spoke to The Tribune yes-
terday.
A woman, identifying herself
only as Donald, for fear of vic-
timization by police, said that a
woman officer at that station told
her one night that they lacked the
personnel to deal with a com-
plaint she made and simply put
the phone down.
"I waited and I listened to all of
them talking and the woman nev-
er came back to the phone," she


said. "She told me that 'we don't
have the manpower to deal with
your situation."'
Donald also said that the offi-
cer on another occasion told her
that she needed to file a civil law
suit, which she said she was not
interested in doing.
"I am calling my police because
I believe my police are here to
protect me and help me in my
complaint," she said. "Instead She
got testy, put down the phone and
walked.away and never came
back.
"No one ever showed up."

A SECOND man charged in
last week's seizure of nearly $10
million worth of cocaine was
arraigned in a Magistrate's Court
yesterday.
Police have now charged Martin
James Bootle, 45, of Abaco,.and
Felix Johnson, 36, also of Abaco
with charges stemming from a mas-
sive drug seizure. According to
court dockets, the two men being
concerned together and with others,

the destruction caused by Hurri- sup
- chance Ike and Tropical storm err
Hanna. the
of President of the BCMC, Rev- wo
n- erend William Higgs, said his Re
se organisation has been in Inagua "
ef for almost two weeks and have Me
'g been working very hard to assist by'
the people of Inagua. cor
Rev Higgs said the Methodist Un
Church responded immediately kn(
to the damage in Inagua and sent Vo
a first response team with tools, (U
food, tarps and ready hands to do tra'
the work. to
He explained that his organi- wh
stations' main focus in Inagua was eld
on the homes. The first group, nee
of about eight persons, was able niz:
to re-shingle seven roofs in 10 volu
days, do some work on the pri- do
mary school and help the Angli- con
can Church keep dry by covering
their roof temporarily. foo
"We do not get involved in the par
decision making as to which of
homes get fixed or the material me,


)ply as to how much the gov-
iment gives, we just provide
e facilitation of getting some
rk teams in to do the work,"
v Higgs said.
'Much of the work of the
methodist Habitat is carried out
volunteers, hundreds of whom
me from an organisation in the
ited Methodist Church, also
own as the United Methodist
'lunteers in Mission
MVIM). These volunteers
vel to the Bahamas each year
work on building programmes
ich offer assistance to the
early and people who are in
ed. Rev. Higgs said his orga-
ation makes sure that these
unteers are self-sustained and
not become a burden on the
immunity.
Our team takes their own
d supply, water, and they pre-
e their own meals. Members
the community may offer
als and try to help which we


graciously accept, but we do not
go into devastated areas expect-
ing people there to take care of
us. Having been through hurri-
canes ourselves, some of us know
what that's like, so we don't want
to do that to people," he said.
Rev Higgs said the support has
also been pouring in from the
United Methodist Churches in
Florida and throughout the
USA. He said the McCulloch
family of Jacksonville Florida,
who are frequent visitors to the
Methodist church in Inagua, led
a fundraising drive in churches
in their area, raising over $16,000
and purchasing tarps, roof felt
and supplies to ship to Inagua.
"Our focus in Inagua has been
mainly on the roofs because we
feel as though a lot of other peo-
ple have responded by provid-
ing the stuff and the things that
we needed right away, and we
will provide the labor. We are in
this for the long hall."

Haitian city

encased in

mud needs

global help

* By ARIANA CUBILLOS
GONAIVES, Haiti
The U.N. World Food Pro-
gram's director flew to a Haitian
city still encased in mud Friday
to draw global attention to the
ongoing disaster that has enor-
mously complicated the coun-
try's struggle to feed itself,
according to the Associated
Press.
The WFP said it has asked for
US$54 million to help Haiti
recover from four killer storms
but so far has received only
US$1 million. Beginning a two-
day survey of the disaster area,
Executive Director Josette
Sheeran said "concerted global
action" will be needed in a
country where local officials say
famine looms.
Haitian President Rene
Preval also pleaded for help,
asking for long-term assistance
Friday in his speech to the U.N.
General Assembly.
Devastation awaited Sheeran
in this coastal city, largely cut
off from the rest of Haiti
because of flooded roads and
wrecked bridges. Gray mud is
still piled waist-high in homes,
coating prized television sets,
books and cooking pots. Tens of
thousands still live in shelters
and roam muddy streets looking
for food.
At least 194 people were
killed by the tropical storms in
less than a month this summer
in Gonaives and the surround-
ing region, the largest share of a
nationwide death toll of 425.
Some of the muck is topsoil
- precious in this deforested
country flushed from the
mountains above when a river
broke its banks, churned
through the countryside and
sliced through town before
emptying into the sea.
Clouds of mosquitoes now
breed in'Gonaives' wet ground,
raising fears that disease will
spread. Children play in the
muck. In a hospital, brown mud
immobilizes an empty wheel-
chair. Some families bail the
mud from their houses, soldier-
ing on in the stench. Mothers
use muddy rags to wipe off
kitchen utensils. Most residents
have nowhere else to go.
"I've been cleaning out my
dirt house," said Yonel Charles,
who lost all his possessions in
the floods. "I have to stay .here."
The floods from Fay, Gustav,
Hanna and Ike destroyed an
estimated 60 percent of Haiti's
food harvest. The WFP said it
has delivered more than 2,200
metric tons of food during this
emergency, enough to feed
almost 500,000 people.
"Hunger is no stranger to
Haitians who have been struck
by more than their fair share of
crises," Sheeran said. "Now is
the time for concerted global
action to get food to the hungry,
and to support President
Preval's goal of longer-term
solutions to help the country,
and its people, feed them-
selves."
Speaking in New York,
Preval thanked the world for its
help, but said emergency aid
alone won't solve Haiti's plight
and that long-term solutions are
needed. "Once this first wave of
humanitarian compassion is
exhausted, we will be left once


again, truly alone, to face new
catastrophes and see again, like
a ritual, the start of the same
exercises of mobilization,"
Preval said. Preval said he wants
trade liberalization "based on
clear rules" that would allow
Haitian farmers to compete, and
a reconstruction project that
empowers Haitians to take care
of themselves.

YOUNG attorney Nerissa Greene will
once again take the podium at the annu-
al Halshury Chambers Free Legal Clin-
ic this lime to talk aou talk about the issue of
dower rights.
The legal clinic will take place on Sat-
urday, October 4 at the New Providence
Community Centre on Blake Road.
During the clinic attendees will be
able to meet with attorneys from the
firm to discuss legal issues without
charge.
A specialist in family law, including
divorce and marriage, Ms Greene will
host a session titled "Surviving Divorce
or Husband's Death: Who Gets What?"
"There is a significant but largely
unpublicised issue in the Bahamas today
regarding after-dower rights," said Ms
Greene. "When a spouse dies or a
divorce occurs what parties are entitled
to can often get very complicated. I've
been a proponent of pre-nuptial agree-
ments and properly prepared wills and


trusts for a long time in order to avoid
the unfortunate situations we continual-
ly encounter as lawyers."
Ms Greene graduated with honours
from the University of Keele in Stafford-
shire, England, where she earned her
BA in business administration, as well as
her LLB.
She was called to the Bar of England
and Wales and the Bar of the Bahamas
in 2001. She was called to the New York
Bar in 2004.
Ms Greene has become a prominent
figure and sought-after speaker on the
subjects of marriage, divorce and family
matters.
She also practices commercial law,

INGRAHAM ADDRESSES UN's 63RD GENERAL ASSEMBLY



PM: Illicit arms and



drugs trade pose huge



challenge for Bahamas


DURING his contribution to
the United Nation's 63rd gen-
eral assembly Prime Minister
Hubert Ingraham called for the
illicit trade in small and light
arm weapons to be addressed
in a "holistic, transparent, and
legally binding manner".
Noting that the 2008 World
Drug Report indicates that the
supply of illicit drugs is increas-
ing, Prime Minister Ingraham
said that this escalation has
"serious consequences" for the
Bahamas and its neighbours.
."The Bahamas and member
states of the Caribbean com-
munity are neither significant
producers nor suppliers of nar-
cotics.
"We are neither manufactur-
ers nor suppliers of small arms
and light weapons.
"Yet, the meteoric rise in the
illicit trafficking in drugs, small
arms and light weapons, illegal
migration, and human traffick-
ing through our sub-region cre-
ates a formidable challenge to
the national security and socio-
economic growth and develop-


ment of our countries. "Win-
ning the \\ar on crime and vio-
lence is of utmost. importance
to my country.
"We continue to dedicate sig-
nificant and increased resources,
both recurrent and capital, to
law enforcement so as to bet-
ter fight the wave of. crime and
violence that defies our own


Minister of State for the Environment Phenton Neymour
has acknowledged that there is an inconsistent supply of gaso-
line and diesel on San Salvador.
Mr Neymour said the Ministry of Environment took note of
the complaints by residents of that island and he assured resi-
dents that every effort is being made to swiftly address the sit-
uation.
He explained that there are two suppliers on the island.
"One of the country's major wholesalers has informed me that
they no longer have a supply agreement with one of the local
suppliers," Mr Neymour said.
"However, I am advised that SunOil, the other major whole-
saler, has scheduled a delivery for next week Wednesday Octo-
ber 1, and has indicated that they expect to re-open the Shell
Service Station shortly thereafter."
The minister noted that because the Bahamas is an archipel-
ago with a relatively small population, consumers incur a host
of additional challenges not faced by many Caribbean neigh-
bours, in addition to the rising cost of fuel.
"Moreover, I must express my concern in regards to the safe
transport of fuel to Family Island posts, and strongly encourage
the adherence to industry standards and best practices country-
wide.
"While I am aware that some may have few alternate options,
Family Islanders should minimise the custom of delivering and
storing fuel in 55-gallon drums and unauthorised containers," Mr
Neymour said.

Financial aid for farmers
* GLADSTONE THURSTON
AGRICULTURE and Marine Resources Minister Larry
Cartwright has signed phase two of the Food and Agriculture
Organisation's 'Initiative for Soaring Food Prices' paving the way
for $250,000 in aid to farmers.
"This initiative will go a long way in helping to encourage farm-
ers especially in the rural areas of the Bahamas, to grow more
food and to enhance our food security initiative," said Mr
Cartwright.
The Initiative for Soaring Food Prices was put forward by FAO
director general Dr Jacques Diouf in 2007 as a means of combating
rising food and fuel prices.
It has three phases. The first is to respond to the,"very urgent cas-
es" such as has been the case in Haiti, resulting in food riots, FAO
representative Dr Dustan Campbell explained.
The second phase has already been signed onto by several
Caribbean countries including the Bahamas. It is a project of
$250,000 and becomes ready for immediate implementation upon
signing.
"It is to provide input supply for the most vulnerable farmers in
the Bahamas," said Dr Campbell. "The target group would be
identified by the Ministry of Agriculture.
"From the moment we sign, the Ministry of Agriculture would
take control of this project and identify farmers so that input- fer-
tilisers, seeds and equipment can be: provided, so that the-food-
production in the Bahamas would not fall as a result of increased
prices. We want it to be maintained or increased."

How far US has come in race relations


POLLS can be normal mirrors that reflect
who we are at a moment in time or fun-house
mirrors that distort our image. Either way,
they force us to look at ourselves candidly to
confirm, correct or clarify who we really are.
A poll done on racial attitudes in Septem-
ber 2008 will look different from one done in
September 1962 and will reflect where we
came from and where we are going.
Last weekend, an AP-Yahoo News poll
offered some sobering numbers. The Asso-
ciated Press began its story on the results
with this paragraph:
"Deep-seated racial misgivings could cost
Barack Obama the White House if the elec-
tion is close, according to an AP-Yahoo News
poll that found one-third of white Democrats
harbour negative views toward blacks, many
calling them 'lazy,' 'violent' or responsible
for their own troubles."
A little farther down, it continued, "40 per
cent of all white Americans hold at least a
partly negative view toward blacks, and that
includes many Democrats and independents."
This is one of those polls that not only fur-
rows the brow, leaving you questioning its
accuracy and wondering about its methodol-
ogy, but also leaves you hoping it's inaccurate.
An explanation on its methodology said,
"The survey broke ground by incorporating
images of black and white faces to measure,
implicit racial attitudes, or prejudices that
are so deeply rooted that people may not
realize they have them. That test suggested
the incidence of racial prejudice is even high-
er, with more than half of whites revealing
more negative feelings toward blacks than
whites."
It would be interesting to do a similar poll
on the racial attitudes of other ethnic groups,
but this is what we have now. While it can be
debated what kind of mirror this poll holds up
to racial attitudes, what's undeniable is that
Obama is a prism through which many Amer-
icans are looking at race.
This would have been the case with who-
ever emerged as the first serious black can-
didate for president of the United States,
even if that candidate had been a Republican.
Had it been Colin Powell in 1996 or Con-
doleezza Rice this year, he or she would have
been forced by the media to eventually
address the issue of race, as was Obama. This
is a double standard because although race is
an historically important issue and you can't
have racial tension or racial reconciliation


without at least two ethnic groups, none of
the white candidates was ever pressured to
talk about race.
In an interview this week, Obama acknowl-
edged that there are people who will vote
for or against him because he's black. The
best snapshot of where we are as a nation is in
discussions and debates over Obama in which
advocates and critics argue over his policies
and philosophy, not the amount of melanin in-
his skin.
One of the great ironies of this campaign
and the AP-Yahoo News poll is that Obama
would not be where he is today were it not for
the early support of white voters. Blacks who
now overwhelming support him didn't do so
until white voters, especially young white
voters, validated him with his victory in Iowa
and near-victory in New Hampshire.
Obama is not the alpha and omega of race
relations in this country. One of the silliest
things said is that if he is elected that means
that race is no longer an issue. No single indi-
vidual is the personification of a nation's
problems or the salvation from those prob-
lems.
An Obama victory doesn't mean the end of
bias, but neither does an Obama defeat
equate to a worsening of race relations. His
ethnicity evokes inspiration and fear, pride
and uncertainty. But in the end, there are
greater reasons to vote for or against him.
As Martin Luther King Jr. said, "We're
not where we want to be but, thank God,
we're not where we used to be."
Where we used to be was on the campus of
the University of Mississippi in Oxford, on the
night of Sept. 30, 1962, when the eyes of the
world watched an orgy of violence because a
black 29-year-old Air Force veteran wanted
to go to school. But a disgusting display of
murderous hatred in which blood was shed,
bodies beaten and lives lost didn't prevent
James Meredith from integrating Ole Miss.
Where we are now, 46 years later, is on
that same campus, the site of the first presi-
dential debate Friday night.
Polls may show us how far we still have to
go, but Friday night reminds us how far we've
travelled.

Ingraham


is


putting


people first


EDITOR, The Tribune.
THE Rt Hon Hubert Alexan-
der Ingraham was true to form
in the House of. Assembly
Wednesday. He unselfishly
responded to the crescendo of
cries that were building from
the burden brought on by the
exuberant cost of electricity.
Mr Ingraham, who came
from the poor, is fully aware
how they must have felt when
BEC waved their big stick,
which was capable of breaking
the backs of the consumers.
The load for some was simply
too much to bear.
So Mr Ingraham heard their
cries apd with the compassion
expected from a caring sharing
government, directed BEC to
immediately restore, without


any reconnection fee, the elec-
tricity supply to all residential
consumers who have had their
electricity disconnected from
failing to pay their electricity
bills in full.
This would bring immediate
relief to thousands of consumers
that may have experienced
hardship from their supply
being interrupted.
This gesture will resonate'
through the various communi-
ties, especially because many
have given up hope.
BEC was cruel and heavy
handed in how inhumane they


handled the matter. But God
has a way of touching the hearts
of men. Mr Ingraham was obe-
dient and brought the kind of
relief that will cause people to
see that he is a rare leader. It
took a bold, brave, decisive
leader to "cut to the chase" and
make a decision.
Regardless what is said, it
took Hubert Ingraham to "bite
the bullet" and ignore the "bot-
tom line" and put human suf-
fering as a priority.
The Bahamian people must
be grateful for this act of
unselfishness.
I join many Bahamians in
thanking Mr. Hubert Ingraham
for putting "people first.".

Should the public treasury be used


to gain political popularity points?


EDITOR, The Tribune.
According to press reports this
morning (Wednesday, Septem.-
ber 10, 2008), Prime Minister
Ingraham is going to use the Pub-
'lic Treasury to pay electricity bills
for those Bahamians that are
hurting as a result of the eco-
nomic downturn.
Based on the number of
requests around town for mon-
ey, we all know how many people
are hurting financially. Add Hur-
ricane Ikq to the mix, and me
problem is just exacerbated.
The question though is should


the public treasury be used to
gain political popularity points? I
do not see anywhere in the Con-
stitution that indicates to me that
public funds can be used for this
purpose.
Mr. Ingraham has done this in
the past when he paid the straw
vendors off after an arsonists fire
destroyed the "Famous Nassau
Straw Market" because they did
not insure themselves against loss.
Mr. Perry Christie, former
Prime Minister, also paid hotel
workers in Grand Bahama off
when a hotel was forced to close.
Charity is an important thing


to the human condition. Govern-
ments doling out money that they
take (taxes) from the community
under the threat of jail time, etc, is
not cricket!
When will the run to the pub-
lic purse stop? When will family
and community members assist
each other?
Socialists have an interesting
way of perverting the responsi-
bilities of government.

Heartfelt thanks for Ike relief efforts


EDITOR, The Tribune.
On behalf of the President, and the Executive
Members of the Bahamas Red Cross Society, I wish
to extend heartfelt thanks for the support and out-
pouring of donations for the relief efforts following
the passing of Hurricane Ike.
The Bahamas Red Cross as an emergency relief
organisation was able to respond quickly to the res-
idents on the islands affected by Hurricane Ike.
Because of the generosity of a caring community
the Bahamas Red Cross to'date has been able to
assist affected families in Acklins and Inagua, with
the following 330 cases of water, 556 family food
parcels, 330 flashlights, 465 hygiene kits, 67 tar-
paulins, and 420 blankets in addition to other relief
supplies such as cots, generators, and diapers.
While we were challenged with getting our relief
supplies to the affected islands ,,e are grateful for the
assistance of the National Emergency Management
Agency under the leadership of Commander
Stephen Russell, in ensuring the items got to Inagua
and Mayguana. I would like to particularly thank the


anonymous donors) who covered the cost of the air
freight to Inagua, because of this we were able to
charter two flights and sent two volunteers with
relief supplies to Acklins.
While the residents of this island did not suffer the
damage to their homes as those on Inagua, many of
the residents' livelihoods were affected therefore it
was difficult for them to sustain their families.
To the numerous volunteers who willingly gave of
their free time and assisted with packing boxes,
answering the telephone or any whatever way we
thank you.
We could not have done it without you, and there-
fore say thanks and we look forward to your con-
tinued support.

What are we scared about?
EDITOR, The Tribune.
I was rather amused listening to the Minister of State, Finance elab-
orating that in the EPA agreement there was a requirement for com-
petition. One of the most important planks of insistence of the gov-
ernment is that in the EPA the European Union will acknowledge that
The Bahamas has a political policy to restrict non-citizens entering cer-
tain listed areas of commerce which by this policy are restricted exclu-
sively to Bahamian citizens.
This is not law it certainly contravenes the constitution and is sim-
ply political policy. What would be wrong if we did actually do what the
Europeans would wish us to do throw open the door to real com-
petition and stop the hiding behind protectionism?
If the so-called National Economic Council, an unconstituted body,
can approve an application for a 40-49 per cent acquisition in any of
those listed political protected areas then it is to me totally laughable
that the minister talks about competition.
We are desperate for new employment why by this flawed policy do
we deprive Bahamians the potential of good employment even if
Bahamians only owned a minority interest to me a job is better than
some political policy. What are we scared about?

Continuing sorry state of affairs
EDITOR, The Tribune.
I was pleased to read in this morning's paper that the disgusting and
dilapidated state of the cannon at the foot of Government House
stairs is finally being addressed.
Secretary to the Governor General, Leila Greene, is quoted as
saying "We are making every effort to fix the problem" and "we are
waiting for permission to move the cannon."
Your reporter did not do their homework as the cannon has been
kept in this disgraceful condition since at least December of 2006.
Another letter to the editor at that time drawing attention to its con-
dition resulted in an unsightly plywood box being built around it
where it has resided until its latest unveiling last Friday.
This problem and others like it continue to exist under both PLP and
FNM administrations. The question begs, from whom must permission
come and who is making these herculean repair efforts to restore this
and all our other historic sites that are crumbling daily before our
very eyes. Someone needs to be held accountable for this continuing
sorry state of affairs.

Minister: Hunger



strikes allegations



'under investigation'


* By LLOYD L ALLEN
Tribune Staff Reporter
MINISTER of State for
Immigration Branville McCart-
ney said that allegations of
hunger strikes at the
Carmichael Road Detention
Centre are still under investi-
gation.
When initially contacted by
The Tribune on Friday, the min-
ister said the reports of a hunger
strike among Cuban detainees
was totally untrue. However,
when it was pointed out that
the Chief Officer at the centre
had confirmed the strike, Mr
McCartney said that he had
heard something about threats
of such an action earlier in the
week, but was unaware of a
confirmed strike.
The minister said that on
Wednesday, he along with
Immigration Director Vernon
Burrows visited the centre to
specifically address reports by


officers at the centre of "a num-
ber" of Cubans threatening to
strike.
The minister explained: "I
heard about this earlier this
week, no one to me looked like
they were on a hunger strike.
"I spoke to a few Cubans who
were there, no one mentioned a
hunger strike to me, not one of
the Cubans... but if that is the
case, it's nothing we can do
about that."
The minister said in addition
to speaking with detainees, he
also insured that food supplies
at the facility were adequate to
provide all detainees three
meals a day.
Since Friday's report of an
alleged hunger strike at the cen-
tre, the minister said, an inves-
tigation has been launched.
According to media reports,
Chief Immigration Officer at
the centre Alexander Burns
confirmed that several Cuban
detainees had initiated a hunger


strike.
It is alleged that the detainees
are disgruntled due to sub-stan-
dard living conditions, physical
and verbal abuse, and the length
of time they have been confined
at the facility.
Confirming that many of the
detainees have been confined
for extended periods, the min-
ister said: "When we are repa-
triating, we have to ensure that
the receiving country accepts
them.
He explained that this process
is complex and in many cases
takes some time.
Cuban Ambassador to the
Bahamas Jose Luis Ponce told
The Tribune that his office has a
constant line of communication
with the 27 Cubans at the
Detention Centre.
Mr Ponce said the detainees
simply want to return to Cuba.
The ambassador also indicat-
ed that with regards to 21 of the
Cubans at the centre, arrange-


ments have already been made
for their repatriation on Mon-
day.
There are currently 320
detainees at the centre from
several countries including;
Haiti, Cuba, Jamaica, China,
and Guyana.

MINISTER of Labour Dion
Foulkes warned trade union-
ists to keep in mind that indus-
trial action can lead to
unforseen consequences that
can damage their livelihoods.
Addressing the Trade Union
Congress, Mr Foulkes said
union leaders should always
remember what can happen
when "calm heads do not pre-
vail".
His comments follow a wave
of labour unrest, including a
BTC protest that brought Nas-
sau to a standstill and demon-
strations in Inagua against
Morton Salt which turned vio-
lent.
Mr Foulkes noted that in
Inagua, "some union members
were physically injured, com-
pany property was damaged or
destroyed and criminal charges
were filed. A trusting relation-
ship once destroyed is very
hard to restore."
Nevertheless, he noted, tur-
moil can often be brought to
order, "animosity can be
turned to agreement".
"In the case of Morton Salt, I
was pleased to see the parties
reached agreement and trust is
now beginning to be restored
to the relationship."
Mr Foulkes went on to
address the TUC on the topic
of "Strategic Planning for the
Way Forward."


He said the government is
committed to continuing con-
sultation with its social part-
ners of organised labour unions
and employer associations
before new regulations are
implemented.
The minister said the
Bahamas continues to be at the
forefront in the area of labour
relations management and
development.
"Ladies and gentlemen, the


TUC has already made great
strides towards achieving the
goals set out in this seminar's
agenda. If we consider some of
the challenges that the Bahami-
an workforce will face in the
coming years, a sound long-
term strategy is not a luxury
but a requirement. I have every
confidence that this organisa-
tion will continue to grow and
be a major force in organised
labour," he said.

STEP PROGRAMME LINKS GOVERNMENT SCHOOLS AND BTVI IN LEARNING OPPORTUNITY




High school students receive training





and education for technical skills


HIGH school students will
receive technical skills train-
ing in plumbing, welding, car-
pentry, tiling, drywall instal-
lation and masonry while
attending Bahamas Technical
and Vocational Institute's
Strategic Technical and Edu-
cational Preparation Pro-
gramme.
The "STEP" Programme
links government high schools
and BTVI in a unique learning
opportunity for students.
Since 2006, BTVI has
worked with the schools to
provide technical and voca-
tional training for seniors.
The programme, which
began with a single high
school, has now grown to sev-
en high schools with a total of
110 students enrolled in the
programme.
"We are extremely excited
about participating in the
STEP programme this year,"
said Mrs Major, principal of
Doris Johnson High School.


"BTVI is pleased to partner
with the high schools, with
whom we have had a long-
standing, strong relationship."


Sean Adderley


"We believe that this pro-
gramme will make a tremen-
dous difference in our studen-
- t's lives."
STEP provides students
with a foundation in the vari-


ous trades and gives them
both classroom and real-world
experience in construction.
It is also designed to give
the students a competitive
edge when applying for tech-


nical jobs after graduation.
The students take introduc-
tion principles in their selected
trade area in the first semes-
ter. In the second, students
begin work on projects.


"BTVI is pleased to partner
with the high schools, with
whom we have had a long-
standing, strong relationship,"
said Sean Adderley, public
relations officer at BTVI.
"This is a wonderful option
for students who desire a dif
ferent approach to the high
school environment as they
prepare for technical course-
work."
Mr Adderley also men-
tioned the high volume calls
from parents who wanted to


have their child participate in
the programme but had to be
told that space is limited.
Students completing the
programme will be encour-
aged to apply for the
Advanced Second Level Pro-
grammes at BTVI.
The knowledge acquired
through the Advanced Second
Level programme may also
help the young graduates find
jobs in other professions that
require technical skills, specif-
ically in the construction field.

SIR.Durward Knowles has
once again come to the aid
of Bahamas Against Crime,
donating 100 copies of his
digital memoir to the organi-
sation's efforts.

donation is yet more proof
that Sir Durward is "a con-

Bahamian."
"At the beginning of the

advisory committee and he
was the first individual finan-
cial contributor to the pro-
ject.
"Today in his continuing
effort to contribute to

entitled "Chartered
Course" the account of Sir
Durward's eventful life is a
"must see" for every
Bahamian, especially young
people, he said.
"Sir Durward's rise from
an ordinary background,
through fame and fortune,
national and international
honours and acclaim will
inspire and motivate the
viewer to strive for the high-
est goals.
"It is our understanding
that Sir Durward is also
assisting several other organ-
isations in this creative way
as he seeks to positively
impact every strata of the
Bahamian society.
"Without a doubt, Sir Dur-
ward is one of the great
Bahamians of our time, and
Bahamas Against Crime
takes this opportunity to
salute him on his many
achievements," Rev Moss
said at a press conference
last week. He noted that pre-
sent were the presidents of
several Rotary clubs in New
Providence, of which Sir
Durward is a senior member.

"The increase is due to the

resort between north Abaco and
the eastern tip of Grand Bahama.
The drugs were packaged in 22
suitcases, with a combined weight
of 640 kilos. The officers were con-
ducting a routine operation in the
. northern Bahamas when they saw a
27-foot go-fast boat leaving Spanish
Cay. Officers became suspicious
and decided to check this vessel,
however as they approached they


noticed that the boat turned around
and headed back towards the cay.
As they pursued it, the occupants of
the boat beached it, and got out of
the vessel and ran into the bushes.
It was at that time that assistance
was called in from the OPBAT
team and a helicopter was sent.
With the assistance of a team of
officers, Spanish Cay and neigh-
boring cays were searched.

Thousands of govt workers


take part in BPSU election

FROM page one
opinion in different areas of the public service varies a lot
based on their individual circumstances and the views of the
BPSU's thousands of other members had not yet been heard.
Public servants from around 175 different entities were called
on to cast their votes between 8am and 6pm at locations across
New Providence, Grand Bahama and the Family Islands.
Mr Stubbs said that from what he had seen, there was a low
turnout. He put this down to disillusionment with the union and
to people actually having dropped out of the union before the
election. According to his estimate, based on conversations
with poll workers, at almost 4pm, only around 500 people had
been to vote at the gym, the biggest polling station.
Mr Pinder admitted he expected the election to be a closer one
than in previous years because of "the stories that people have
been telling" about him.
But the incumbent claimed that "outside" of concerns his
opponents have sought to raise about his alleged political lean-
ing making him an ineffective leader, and the medical plan
malfunctioning, "our members are satisfied, based on the
response I got, that I've done the best I could."
At the Kendal G. L. Isaach gym some people agreed with him,
but some did not. "I'm concerned about the progress ,of the
union. Right now the union is moving kind of forward, but I
could see it going better. Mr Pinder has some plans for the
union I'm just willing to support him with the plans he has in
place so far," said public servant James Fraser.
Kirkwood Campbell, an employee at the Department of
Environmental Health Services, said: "I'm voting for what I
think is the more experienced team, Mr Pinder and his team. I'm
pleased with Mr Pinder, what he's done and what he's trying to
do. I don't even know who those people' are on the other
teams."
But a female worker, who wished to remain anonymous said:
"I was disappointed with Mr Pinder's actions and his attitude.
His attitude was stink. He needs to get out. Go. The medical
plan, they need to close that down. I got my medical bill $800
- the medical plan office told me they don't pay for that."
An older worker, also wishing to remain anonymous, said bet-
ter working conditions and pension benefits are needed.
"I would like for them to recognize those people who they've
had on weekly pay for ten, fifteen years, I would like them to
consider them and try doing something to promote them.
She added: "I'm retiring soon and if I only get $60, that's bad,
you know, when you put 37 years in the union."
A customs officer said the two-term President has neglected
them: "It's time to get rid of Mr Pinder. From a customs point
of view we are still waiting on a compensation study that has yet
to be revealed. They are threatening to cut out the overtime and
we have no problem with that but they need to come to us
with the compensation study so we know what we are working
with and how we are going to live."
Worker Patrick Gittens said: "Hopefully by the time I get to
the booth my mind will be made up, because everyone promis-
es you this, promises you that, and you don't see much until the
end of their term. A promise is comfort to a fool. But hopeful-
ly this time around the workers will get their fair share."
At the Sandilands Polling station there was a rumour that a
woman sitting by the entrance door with a "bundle of money"
may have been in a last minute bid to buy votes.
Meanwhile, people who were allegedly handing "pieces of
paper with their candidate's names" on them to people as they
went into the polling booth were in contravention of Depart-
ment of Labour rules for the election, a caller to The Tribune
said.

Grand Bahama BNT teaches LIS



kids about their environment


l ..1..


Lucaya International School
students were treated to a les-
son about their environment
courtesy of the local Grand
Bahama regional branch of
the Bahamas National Trust
last week.
Lead by Karin Sanchez,
chairman of the branch, and
assisted by Prescott Gay, the
new deputy warden at
Lucayan National Park, stu-
dents were told about the his-
tory of the Trust in the
Bahamas and particularly
about Grand Bahama's
national parks.
Students learned about the
three national parks in Grand
Bahama: Lucayan National
Park, Peterson Cay and the
Rand Nature Centre.
They also learnt about the
six eco-systems in the
Bahamas that can all be seen
at the Lucayan National Park
and how important they are
to the stabilisation of our
islands and our future growth.
"It is these ecosystems
which we need to under-
stand," said Warden Gay as
he spoke to the students, as
we strive to work better with
the environment and our sus-
tainable and non sustainable
resources."
"This is a great opportunity
for us to catch students early
and help them to care about
their environment," stated
Mrs Sanchez, "these students
are living in a different mil-
lennium than I grew up in.
We are just now understand-
ing the impact of our lives on
the environment but these stu-
dents will be the ones who will
have to live with our foot-
prints on our islands."
The GB BNT spoke to the
students based on an invite
from Nigel Kirkby, high
school co-ordinator for LIS.
"We want our students to not,
only study the world's envi-
ronments but most impor-
tantly our own. It is imperative
that they understand the beau-
ty of the Bahamas marine and
terrain," he explained, "but
most importantly these stu-
dents will be the next genera-
tion to manage our environ-
ment and they need to take
responsibility for it now and
understand its importance."
Students at Lucaya Interna-
tional School also have to
complete a required 25 hours
of CAS (Creativity Action
Service hours) each year,
whether they are taking the
International Baccalaureate
program or not.
"Mr Kirkby has asked us to
give his students the chance
to work in our parks, to help
us create new trails, to create
park benches and to train as
tour guides," said Mrs
Sanchez "we look forward to
working with these students
and hope they become future
wardens of our Trust land."
Mrs Sanchez also spoke to
the students about the Trust's
current project to repair the
Lucayan National Park bridge
in the east of the island.
She noted the total cost of
the bridge is $250,000 and the
Bahamas National Trust has
committed $100,000 towards
the project with the balance
to be raised in the community.
She went on to discuss the
"Help Build the Bridge" con-
cept, which allows persons to
buy a plank of the bridge and


then have their family or busi-
ness name permanently on the
bridge.
As the Lucayan National
Park is often used as an edu-
cational tool by several
schools on the island, the


Trust officials also wanted to
give school students a chance
to get involved with the cam-
paign.
Students will have an oppor-
tunity to purchase a plank by
having their class buy "Build
the Bridge" T-shirts.
"We know students can't
make large donations to us
but we also know they want
to have a chance to leave their
names on the bridge too by
having their class name
engraved on a plank they will
have a memory forever."
The Grand Bahama trust
hopes this is the first of many
talks they will be able to give
at local schools- this year to
enlighten the youth of the
importance of our environ-
ment.
"Our committee has many
goals this year. One of our
major objectives is to have a
monthly lecture or presenta-
tion on an aspect of the
Bahamian environment In
October we will have a pre-

continued to pass throughout. But
West let the cat out of the bag by
doubling six hearts.
A spade was led, and declarer rea-
soned that the only sensible explana-
tion for West's double was that he
expected to score two trump tricks.
South therefore formulated a line of
play designed to do West out of one
of these tricks.
He cashed the A-K of spades and
then acting on the assumption that
West had the 4-3-3-3 distribution that
would allow the slam to be made --
rufted a spade in order to reduce his
trump length. Next he cashed three
club tricks, followed by the K-A of
diamonds and a diamond ruff in
dummy. Finally, declarer ruffed
dunmmy's queen of spades.
At this point, 10 tricks had been
played, and South still had the A-J-
10 of trumps while West had the K-
Q-9. The jack-of-hearts lead then set-
tled West's hash. He could win one
trump trick but no more.
Declarer thus scored 1,660 points
for making the doubled slam. Had
West remained silent during the bid-
ding, as he should have, lie would
have wound up plus 100. In attempt-
ing to gain an extra 100 points by
doubling, West cost himself 1,760
points.
Such foolhardiness can be very
expensive indeed.

'Superman' and

Team Bahamas

anxious over

celebrations

By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporte
bstubbs@tribunemedia.net
LEEVAN "Superman" Sands is so
anxious to come home for the Team
Bahamas celebrations next month that
he hasn't taken off his Olympic bronze
medal yet.
"I've been ready to come home
since August 21," said Sands, recalling
the day after he won the medal with a
national record performance at the
Bird's Nest National Stadium in Bei-
jing, China.
"I can't wait for the celebrations. I
haven't really celebrated the medal
yet because I've been competing after
the Olympics. So I haven't really cele-
brated yet. I've been waiting for the
celebrations for a long time."
When Team Bahamas returns home
on October 11, said Sands, he will have
the medal all polished and shining
around his neck for the Bahamian
public to see.
Back in Auburn after competing in
a number of post-Olympic meets in
Europe, Sands said he's also eager to
begin a much deserved vacation after
enduring a long season that started
with indoors back in February.
"I just want to go somewhere and
relax and don't worry about any stress
and away from coach," said Sands of
Henry Rolle, the Bahamian assistant
coach at Auburn who is his personal
coach.
As he looks forward to the celebra-
tions, Sands also took the time out to
thank BTC, Arawak Homes and leg-
endary Tommy Robinson for their
sponsorship.
He also publicly thanked coaches
Stephen Murray,. Peter Pratt, Wendy
Delancy,. Sidpey. Cartwright and
Franklyn Williams, along with Chris
Kulac from Florida Air Academy, who
all played a vital role in grooming him
before he went to Auburn and started
training with Rolle.
The other medals came from the
men's 4 x 400m relay team of Andret-
ti Bain, Michael Mathieu, Andrae
Williams and Chris "Bay" Brown, who
claimed the silver. Avard Moncur and
Ramon Miller ran in the semifinal.
And Bain and Brown are just as
eager to be a part of the celebrations.
"I'm going to be there," said Bain,
who is currently sitting his final three
classes before he graduates from Oral
Roberts University with his masters
degree in business administration.
"In talking with all of the athletes,
everybody is excited about coming. I
know I want to come and show off the
medal to my family and friends and
just being back home celebrating with
the entire Bahamas."
For Bain, this will be the first team
celebrations he's going to be a part of.
So having watched previous celebra-
tions, he said he knows what the feel-
ing is like.
Once school is finished, Bain said
he will continue his pro career, which
was launched after he won the 400m
title at the outdoor NCAA Champi-
onships in June.
October seemed to be a busy time
for Brown, who will be flying right
back out on October 18 at the end of
the celebrations to make final prepa-
rations for his October 25 marriage in
Athens, Georgia.
"We're coming home with a silver
medal and it ain't from no disqualifi-
cation or anything," Brown stressed.
"So I know the Bahamian people are
looking forward to this and we are
looking forward to it also."
Since he shut down his season,
Brown said he has been relaxing and
trying to get his body back in sync
after a tremendous season, falling short
of getting another medal in the 400m.
While track and field will take the
brink of the accolades, veteran tennis
player Mark Knowles, who played in
his fifth Olympics with rookie Marvin
lolle in doubles, said it's good that
the. celebrations will be held in the
manner that they are going to be
staged. "With Inagua and a few of the
other islands being severely hit by hur-
ricane, there's.no better way than to
have the Olympic athletes go down
there and bing some cheer to them,"
Knowles said.
"I remember the last Olympic cele-
brations. It was wonderful. We got to
go all over the Bahamas and the peo-
ple got to meet all of the athletes. So
it's important to have that connection
with the Bahamian people."
Unfortunately for Knowles, the cel-
ebrations come at a time when he and
his Indian partner Mahesh Bhupathi
will be back on the road as they con-


tinue their march towards the year-
ending Tennis Masters Cup Doubles in
Snainghai, China.


'The


on a German fighter


N, By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporte
a bstubbs@tribunemedia.net
A after taking
more than a
year off to go
through a liti-
gation with his former man-
s agement team, Sherman
"The Tank" Williams is
preparing to get back in the
ring.
The Bahamian heavy-
weight is in Austria training
for a bouf on the undercard
of the World Boxing Coun-
cil's heavyweight champi-
onship bout between Samuel
Peter and Vitali Klitschko
on Saturday, October 11 in
Berlin, Germany.
"Everything is looking
.good. I'm going on my
fourth week here in the
mountains in Austria with
Klitschko," Williams told
Tribune Sports from his
< hotel room yesterday.
"I'm feeling good and I'm
strong. I've been throwing a
lot of punches and just tak-
4 ," ing advantage of being in a
world class environment and
sparring with a world class
fighter."
With Klitschko, who
/ stands about six-feet, five-
'inches, Williams said he's
S getting the opportunity to
prepare for one of the two
possible opponents, who
S both stand around 6-1.
.While his opponent has
not signed as yet, Williams
Said he's eager to get back
in the ring and fight either

is shown above with his sparring partner Vitali Klitschko... Despite not being in the


ring for 14 months, Williams
said he has spent a lot of
time in the gym training
because "I had two bouts
that I signed contracts for,
but for one reason or the
other, they fell through.
"One fell through because
the whole card fell through.
The last one was because of
a lack of funding. But I
remained in the ring. I was in
Hamburg, Germany where
I was doing some cardio
training with more spon-
sors."
But Williams says he has
never missed a week of train-
ing. He's currently sparring
on Monday, Thursdays and
Friday with Klitschko.
"The.camp is nice. So is
Austria," he pointed out.
"We're in a training camp
that is 3,000 feet above sea
level, so the first week it was
hard. But four weeks in our
lungs have expanded. The
training here has been
great."
Williams, however, has
noted that during the 14
months that he has been out
of the ring, he spent about
nine months in litigation try-
ing to get out of his contract
with Silver Hawks.
"It took us .-about eight
months before we were:.
ordered by the judge in liti-
gation to have it resolved,"
Williams said.
"A lot of these big time
Las Verges lawyers have
been trying to use a Don
King style, which is to tie a
fighter up until they are in a
position to use him."
During that period,


Williams said he had to give
up at least two big opportu-
nities to fight and he also had
to relinquish his World Box-
ing Federation's Interconti-
nental heavyweight title that
he won on January 19,2007.
Now under a new man-
agement, Williams said he's
looking forward to a lot of
things happening for him in
the future, starting with this
bout in Berlin next month.
"My manager has already
gotten a call from South
Africa for me to fight once
again for the WBF Intercon-
tinental title," said Williams,
who also held the WBA
FEDECaribe, WBC
CABOFE and NBA titles.
"A German got the title,
but he was recently knocked
out by a well experienced
heavyweight, who has the
title. So they are offering us a
chance to fight him in South
Africa for the same title."
Williams, the 36-year-old
Grand Bahamian, said his
goal is to get through this
fight in Berlin as he looks
forward to regaining his
prominence on the interna-
tional scene.
He said he will be entering
the ring with his all-Bahami-
an costume and national flag
as he continues to promote
the Bahamas in Europe.
But Williams said he
hopes that the Government
of the Bahamas will see it fit
to give him a stipend just like
all of the elite athletes so that
he can continue his quest to
become the Bahamas' first
heavyweight world champi-
on.

Truckers roll over Commodores 2-1


* By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporte
bstubbs@tribunemedia.net
WITH their season on the line, the
Royal Bahamas Defense Force Com-
modores mounted their best game
against the D's Truckers on Thurs-
day night at the Baillou Hills Sporting
Complex.
Unfortunately, the Truckers were
already looking past the best-of-three
playoffs and they pulled off a close 2-
1 victory over the Commodores to
return to the New Providence Soft-
ball Association men's championship
series.
Center fielder Terran Wood blasted
a one-out solo home run in the bot-
tom of the sixth to seal the deal as
the Truckers swept the Royal
Bahamas Defense Force in three
straight games in their best-of-five
series.
"I think they played good defense,
the fans enjoyed it and the Truckers
just held on for the victory," said D's
ace and winning pitcher Leroy
Thompson.
Unlike they did in the first two


* Playoff sweep pitches them into championship series against New Breed or Pros
Sharks stun defending champions Wildcats 13-6 to snatch 2-1 lead in series


games, the Truckers had to go the full
distance and that was kind of surpris-
ing for Thompson and his team-mates.
"In the fourth inning, I told the guys
that I'm worried that we will have to
play past the fifth inning," Thompson
said.
"In the first two games, we only
played five innings. I asked the guys
what happened and they said
(Defence Force Commodore Clifford
"Butch") Scavella was pitching a very
good game. So we really had to try
and step up our game."
Holding onto a 1-0 lead in the
fourth, thanks to a pair of errors by
the Commodores that enabled catch-
er Jamal "Sarge" Johnson to score,
the Truckers made sure that they were
ahead in the sixth when Wood added
his solo shot over the center field
fence.
The Commodores had a golden
opportunity to score at least, a run off
Thompson in the sixth when they got
the bases loaded, but were shut out.


Then in the seventh, Scavella drew
a lead off walk and pinch runner Gary
Hanna Jr scooted home with the
Commodores' first and only run on
right fielder Dwayne Taylor's one-out
single.
Thompson ended up firing a four-
hitter with five strike outs for the win.
Scavella was a little more stingy with
a four-hitter and six strike outs.
Wood finished with a pair of hits
to lead the offensive attack.
The Truckers will now await the
winner of the other half of the playoffs
between last year's runners-up New
Breed and the King's Real Estate Pros
to determine who they will meet in
the final.
Meanwhile, the ladies' series has
turned out to be an interesting one.
On Thursday night, last year's run-
ners-up Proper Care Pool Lady
Sharks stunned the defending cham-
pions Pineapple Air Wildcats 13-6 to
snatch a 2-1 lead in their series.
Thela Johnson had a huge night,


going 4-for-5 with a homer and scor-
ing three times to aid her pitching
duties as she out-duel Mary Fdge-
combe-Sweeting on the mound.
Johnson has a two-run homer in
the fifth and she added a bases loaded
two-run single in the sixth to force
the Wildcats to walk off the field in
their abbreviated win.
Sheria Woodside helped out with
a 2-for-2 night with.three RBIs and a
run scored.
Vernie Curry was 1-for-2 with a pair
of RBIs, scoring a run and Edge-
combe-Sweeting helped her cause by
going 1-for-2 with a RBI and run
scored.
Despite the loss, Edgecombe-
Sweeting said don't count the Wild-
cats out just yet.
"The Cats never say die. We will
bounce back on Sunday and win and
force a game five and we will win that
and be in the'championships," she
said. "I don't know what it is to pay to
watch a championship."

Linebacker U

gets stiff test

in handling

the Juice

* By GENARO C ARMAS
AP Sports Writer

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP)
- Study time is over at Line,
backer U.
No. 12 Penn State has steam-
rolled to a 4-0 start over a quartet
of overwhelmed foes, nonconfer-
ence mismatches that have
allowed the fresh faces at line-
backer to ease into their new roles.
The grace period ends tonight,
when dual-threat quarterback
Juice Williams and No. 22 Illinois
come to Happy Valley in the Big
Ten opener for both teams.
Williams leads the Big Ten in
total offense with 313.7 yards per
game. No wonder Penn State
coach Joe Paterno is fretting about
trying to stop him.
"There's no best way. It isn't as
if you can gang up on one aspect
of the game," Penn State's Hall
of Fame head coach said. "They're
going to move the football. We're
not going to contain them."
That gloom-and-doom scenario
may not be what Penn State's line-
backing corps wants to hear. It's a
unit that's relatively young, but
deep in talent; athletic, but not
very seasoned.
Lots of potential, but, for now,
no stars.
It's a far cry from the last couple
years, when Bednarik Award win-
ners Paul Posluszny and Dan Con-
nor manned the middle. Sean Lee
would have received top billing
this year if not for sustaining a sea-
son-ending right knee injury in
spring practice.
So it will be up to lesser-known
names like senior Tyrell Sales and
new starters Josh Hull and Navor-
ro Bowman to help squeeze down
on Juice.
"You just have to always be on
your toes, be ready for anything,"
said Bowman, who earned Big
Ten defensive honors for his
three-sack, one interception per-
formance against Temple last
week. "He's an extra threat on the
field. We'll be ready for that this
week." .
Williams, for his part, isn't buy '
ing the argument that Penn State's ""
linebacking corps may not be as
good as last year's starting trio of
Connor, Lee and Sales.
Statistically, the Nittany Lions
have been a defensive force so far,
holding opponents to 52 rushing
yards and 10 points a game. It's
more than enough cushion for a
Penn State offense lighting up the
scoreboard like a pinball machine.
Bowman, who entered the start-
ing lineup last week against Tem-
ple, has shown the athleticism to
be a possible force down the road.
Sales is the experienced on-field
leader with Lee resigned to an
unofficial coaching role on the
sideline. Bani Gbadyu and Chris
Colasanti supply quality depth.
"I can't really see the difference,
even in the absence of Sean Lee,"
Williams said. "They're not called
Linebacker U. for no reason."
Illinois had a bye last week to
contemplate a middling 24-20 win
Sept. 13 over Louisiana-Lafayette.
Williams was an ordinary 13-of-
25 for 147 yards with one touch-
down and one interception. He
ran 11 times for just 35 yards.
Yet Williams and Illinois' no-
huddle attack still figure to pose
the biggest threat so far for the
Penn State defense. The Illini
score more than 36 points a game.
Penn State did get a potential
boost this week when defensive
linemen Maurice Evans and Abe
Koroma returned to practice,
nearly a week after being charged
with one count each misdemeanor
possession of a small amount of
marijuana stemming from a Sep-
tember 2 police call to their apart-
ment for loud noise.
Evans, in particular would be
helpful in pressuring the quarter-
back; he had a team-high 12.5
sacks in 2007. Paterno, though, has
said he isn't sure whether either
Evans or Koroma would play Sat-
urday.
Illinois coach Ron Zook seems
more convinced.
"They're going to be back. I'm
sure they're going to be in there,"
Zook said. "It just adds to their
repertoire, their arsenal."


A right foot injury that will like-
ly keep starting right tackle Ryan
Palmer out of the game might also
hurt the Illini. A true freshman,
Jeff Allen, must step in and handle
Aaron Maybin, the Big Ten leader
in sacks (six), and possibly Evans.
Some Nittany Lions feel they
have a good base on which to plan
for Williams since they practice
every day against Daryll Clark,
Penn State's own mobile signal-
caller. It will be incumbent on the
linebackers to keep a wary eye
when Williams sprints out of the
pocket.
"When you have a guy like
that...you can't sit back," Sales
said.


Oregon State beats





top-ranked USC 27-21


* By ANNE M PETERSON
AP Sports Writer

CORVALLIS, Oregon
(AP) It was the curse of
Corvallis all over again for the
Trojans.
Top-ranked Southern Cali-
fornia visited Oregon State
on Thursday night and lost
27-21. It was the second
straight upset victory for the
Beavers at home against the
Trojans.
"I think across the board it
was a case of we weren't func-
tioning," USC coach Pete
Carroll said. "We weren't
playing like we normally do."
Freshman Jacquizz Rodgers
helped the Beavers pull off
the stunner, running for 186
yards and two touchdowns.
Oregon State built a 21-point
first-half lead before capital-,
izing on a late turnover.
Orange-clad Beavers fans
rushed the field when the
clock ran out after the 25-
point underdogs shook up col-
lege football with a victory
over a USC team that was
expected to roll right through
its conference straight to the
national championship game.
What once seemed like an
inevitability for the Trojans
now seems something of a
longshot.
"That was great," Rodgers
said. "It was something I've
never witnessed before."
The Beavers (2-2,1-1 Pacif-
ic-10) also upset USC at
Reser Stadium in 2006, when
the Trojans were ranked
third. The team's lone victory
over a No. 1 team came in
1967, when Oregon State beat
the O.J. Simpson-led Trojans
3-0.
USC has lost three of its
last four games in Corvallis.
Trojan quarterback Mark
Sanchez's pass was intercept-
ed by safety Greg Laybourn
on the.30 with less than 3 min-
utes to play. Laybourn ran the
ball back 28 yards to put Ore-
gon State on the 2, and
Rodgers ran in the final 2
yards to make it 27-14.
Fans carried Laybourn on
their shoulders after the
game.
Sanchez hit Patrick Turner
with a 14-yard scoring pass
with 1:19 left, but time ran out
on the Trojans (2-1, 0-1).
"We weren't ready to do
what we needed to do," Car-
roll said. "We felt like we had
great preparation. Then when
we were out there, it just did-
n't feel like it."
Rodgers' rushing yards
were the most by a Trojan
opponent since Vince Young
ran for 200 for Texas in the
BCS national championship
game in 2006.
Rodgers' brother James
had six .catches for 36 yards
and two scores for Oregon
State. Lyle Moevao complet-
ed 18 of 26 passes for 167
yards and two TDs.
"They came out and com-
peted," Oregon State coach
Mike Riley said of his team.
"We were respectful, but not


in awe."
Sanchez completed 18 of 29
passes for 227 yards and three
scores, with the one crucial
interception. Tailback Joe
McKnight rushed for just 10
yards against the Beavers,
after gaining 105 yards in the
Trojans' 35-3 victory over
Ohio State.
McKnight took the loss
upon himself.
"I didn't make the plays.
Fumbled the ball, dropped a
pass," he said. "You can't
blame anybody else but me."
The game opened with dra-
ma, as USC safety Taylor
Mays was called for a person-
al foul on James Rodgers on
an 8-yard touchdown recep-
tion.
Carroll asked that the score
be reviewed, because it did
not look as if the bail had
crossed the line. The touch-
down stood, giving the
Beavers a 7-0 lead.
The Beavers more than
held their own through the
first half, with the Trojans
appearing confused about
how to' handle Jacquizz
Rodgers, who is just 5-foot-7
and 185 pounds. He somehow
pushed through USC's defen-
sive line for a 2-yard touch-
down run to make it 14-0.
His big brother saw the end
zone again before halftime.
Moevao's pass was nearly
intercepted by USC corner-
back Kevin Thomas, but the
ball was tipped into the hands
of James Rodgers to make it
21-0.
USC answered on its first
series of the second half with
Sanchez's 26-yard scoring pass
to Ronald Johnson.
Sanchez then found wide-
open receiver Damien
Williams, who sprinted down
the sideline and narrowly
avoided Laybourn's efforts to
push him out of bounds to
narrow it to 21-14 with 2:56
left in the third quarter.
The Beavers squandered a
chance to add to the lead mid-
way through the fourth when
they tried for a field goal, but
Sean Sehnem's 41-yard
attempt was blocked.
The Beavers opened this
season with two losses, at
Stanford and Penn State,
before returning home for a
victory over Hawaii.
Despite their struggles, the
Beavers had seen steady
growth on offense and the
emergence of Jacquizz
Rodgers, who went into the
game against the Trojans as
the nation's leading freshman
rusher with 87.7 yards per
game.
"For whatever reason we
just couldn't tackle him," Car-
roll said.
"We'd hit him in the back-
field and he'd keep bouncing.
Him hiding behind the line of
scrimmage was very effective.
We had troubles with it all
day."
USC had shown little vul-
nerability in victories at Vir-
ginia and then at home
against then-No. 5 Buckeyes.

No. 9 Badgers ignore history



prepping for Michigan


* By COLIN FLY
AP Sports Writer

MILWAUKEE (AP) There was
no need for No. 9 Wisconsin to review
the film from its latest loss to Michigan
in 2006. Even watching last year's 37-
21 win at home was worthless.
With new Michigan coach Rich
Rodriguez bringing in his spread
offense, Wisconsin (3-0) will see a dif-
ferent shade of maize and blue in its
Big Ten conference opener in Ann
Arbor today.
"The film from a year ago does us
no good, really even just personnel-
wise," Wisconsin coach Bret Bielema
said. "There's no carry-over."
Maybe that's a good thing. Wiscon-
sin needs a fresh start against a team
they haven't beaten on the road since
1994 and are just 6-26 at Michigan Sta-
dium.
"It's tough, but you can't let the
environment get to you," said running
back P.J. Hill, who'll be expected to
carry the load if he can overcome nag-
ging bruises after a hard shot to the
back and legs in Wisconsin's win at
Fresno State. "The past is the past.


We've got different players, different
coaches and different talent now."
What else is new?
Try the Badgers being a touchdown
favorite in a series that's seen them
only win 12 games in 61 tries. It's the,
first time Wisconsin has been ranked
in the series and Michigan (1-2) hasn't
since 1959.
At least Bielema knows what it's
like to win at Michigan Stadium, even
though he only managed to do it once
- as a player when he was a defensive
lineman at Iowa. In 1990, the
Hawkeyes beat Michigan 24-23.
"It was a very special feeling, some-
thing that you can take with you for a
long time," said Bielema, who failed to
repeat the feat as an assistant coach at
Iowa or as Wisconsin's head coach in
2006 in his first conference game.
Bielema's lack of success mirrors
his team, and winning on the road in
the conference hasn't come easy for
Wisconsin. The Badgers know that if
they want to reach a BCS bowl, they'll
need to win away from Camp Ran-
dall Stadium.
"We lost all our conference games
on the road last year. Period," said


linebacker Jonathan Casillas even
though the Badgers did win at 1-11
Minnesota. "We have to win on the
road now. If we want to be great at the
end of the year, we have to be good on
the road."
Michigan has been rotating numer-
ous personnel looking for the right
fits in Rodriguez's system.
That includes a new look defensive
package with three linemen, three line-
backers and five defensive backs, as
well as any number of running backs
in the spread offense, including elusive
freshman Sam McGuffie.
"I watched film and I see the plays
that the freshman kid had, I saw him
breaking tackles," Casillas said.
"They're going to be better than what
their record is, I know that for sure. I
know they're going to be fired up and
ready to go."
One thing that won't be changing
is the Badgers' offense, built on brute
force, not misdirection. But quarter-
back Allan Evridge will have to make
enough plays in the passing game to
tight end Travis Beckum and the
young receivers to keep Michigan's
defense from creeping up to stop Hill.


"They're going to run the ball right
at you," RodrigueI said.
"They do a great job in doing dif-
ferent things formation-wise, play
action, bootleg, and using their skill
guys.
Wisconsin is adamant that it's
Michigan that's the favorite with tlw
history to defend.
The Badgers? They're playing the
role of upstarts.
"Michigan's a great team, they've
got so much tradition, a legacy there.
They're the names of the Big Ten.
People think of the Big Ten as Ohio
State, Michigan. That's just what it
is," Casillas said. "We're just going
there and basically trying to make our
name present (in the discussion) as
well."
And with that.attitude. Hill is con-
fident that the Badgers won't under-
estimate Michigan.
"They are a wounIded beast.'" Hill
said.
"We can't go in there and think we
are going to just beat them. We know
they are going to give us a battle and
we're going to meet that challenge,
he said.

Once labeled a

bust, Pace making

plays for the Jets

* By DENNIS WASZAK Jr
AP Sports Writer
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) -
Calvin Pace brought his appetite when
he met with the New York Jets for the
first time.
"We went to Nobu and he ate a lot,"
coach-Eric Mangini recalled Thursday.
"We were both hungry that night."
In more ways than one. The Jets
were looking for a pass-rushing force
who could fit into their 3-4 defensive
system, and Pace wanted to go to a
team that was focused on building a
winning foundation.
"I've been close, kind of, to a couple
of playoff chances, but nothing you
can really hang your hat on," the play-
making outside linebacker said. "So
that was a big thing. You don't want to
go out and play and not work toward
the postseason,"
A coveted free agent in the offsea-
son after five disappointing years with
the Arizona Cardinals, Pace signed
with the Jets for six years and $42 mil-
lion after a night of sushi and sake
at the fancy Manhattan restaurant.
"We had some kind of tempura rock
shrimp that was out of this world,"
Pace said. "It was a good night. Took
me back to the hotel and the next day,
we talked football."
He's fit right in with the Jets, ranking
third with 16 tackles, along with one
and-a-half sacks in three games.
"I think it's so easy when you sit and
talk to a guy like Calvin to feel his pas-
sion for the game, to feel his passion to
win-and to improve," Mangini said.
"Calvin is another guy that, at prac-
tice, there's only one tempo for him. It
doesn't matter what day it is, he's
working on getting off on the ball. He's
working on his pass rush moves. He's
working on those things."
And Pace will be able to show it
against Kurt Warner and the rest of
his former teammates Sunday when
the Jets host the Cardinals.
"I'll be a little nervous, but I'm excit-
ed, especially the way they're playing,"
he said. "The thing is, I wish I had paid
more attention to them when I was
practicing with them so I could've
picked up some things. You never fig-
ure, 'Well, I'll be playing against them
some time."'
Pace endured what he called "dark
days" during his time in Arizona when
he was labeled a bust by many for fail-
ing to live up to his first-round draft
status.
"It was a tough situation, man," Pace
said.
The Cardinals had the sixth pick in
2003 and many fans wanted them to
draft Arizona State defensive end Ter-
rell Suggs. Instead, they traded the
pick to New Orleans for the 17th and
18th selections and took wide receiver
Bryant Johnson and then Pace, a less-
heralded defensive end from Wake
Forest.
"It was kind like, 'I didn't draft me.
I didn't tell them to draft me,'" Pace
said. "I didn't go out lobbying, like,
'Cardinals, draft me!' I took it person-
ally. I-just had to get past that and
move on."
It wasn't easy. Pace started every
game as a rookie, but had only 32 tack-
les and a sack. He played in 14 games
the following year with no starts and
had nine tackles and four and-a-half
sacks. His third season ended after five
games when he cut his right forearm in
an accident at home during a bye
weekend.
"It made me grow up a lot," he said.
"Sometimes as a player you kind of
get catered to. You experience so
many good things, people are always
patting you on the back. When you
start losing and people aren't saying
good things about you, you kind of
start questioning yourself and doubting
yourself a little bit.
"I had to go back and look at myself
and tell myself to stop blaming other
people, look at myself in the mirror
and change the way I go about work-
ing, study harder, practice harder, just
become a better player."
That happened in 2006, when he
played some at strongside linebacker.
Last season, new coach Ken Whisen-
hunt and defensive coordinator Clan-
cy Pendergast installed a 3-4 defense
and moved Pace to linebacker full
time. He thrived, setting a career high
with six and-a-half sacks and 106 tack-
les.
"I've got nothing but good things to
say about them," Pace said. "And, the
previous coaches, things happen. I
don't sit and dwell on that."
While preparing for this weekend's
game, Whisenhunt was impressed by
Pac, on the Jets' game film.
"Its always rewarding as a coach to
see a player, who maybe didn't have
the succ ss in his first couple of years,


have that kind of success last year,"
Whisenhun, said. "It's kind of bitter-
sweet in a way because we felt good
about what he did for our team last
year and it's very difficult to lose him."
Now, Whisenhbnt's team will have
to contend with a hungry Pace on Sun-
day.
"I just want to go out there and per-
form, and perform well," he said.
"More than anything else, just make
plays. It's not so much more because
I'm playing against the Cardinals, hon-
estly."
Then, Pace chuckled.
"I've never sacked Kurt," he said,
"so I just want to do that."


Pennington takes




his place in Miami




Dolphins offense


* By SARAH LARIMER
Associated Press Writer
DAVIE, Florida (AP) A run-
ning back took direct snaps to help.
the Miami Dolphins grab headlines
and their fist win in the Bill Par-
cells era.
Somewhat lost in the frenzy sur-
rounding Miami's unorthodox for-
mation, called "Wildcat," was an
impressive performance by their
quarterback, Chad Pennington,
who posted the most accurate num-
bers of his nine-year NFL career.
Pennington went 17-for-20 for
226 yards in Miami's 38-13 win over
New England last Sunday. His 85
per cent completion mark was a
new personal single-game high, and
was the second-best completion
percentage in the team's history.
"It is a great feeling," Pennington
said of Miami's offensive perfor-
mance. "It's the best feeling you
can have as an offensive football
player. It really is because you just
feel like whatever's called, good
things are going to happen. To have
that feeling, it doesn't get any bet-
ter than that."
Pennington was sharp against
New England, but much of the
offense came when he didn't touch
the ball. The Dolphins tried the
direct snap to Ronnie Brown six
times, getting five runs for 100
yards and three touchdowns and a
halfback option pass to Anthony
Fasano for a 19-yard touchdown.
"I just thought this would be a
good opportunity right now to
throw something out there that I
knew the players would put their
arms around," Dolphins coach
Tony Sparano said. "I knew they'd
be fired up to get into this thing a
little bit. It would create some
angles for us, without a doubt with-
in our interior. It would create
space based on what I've seen in
what we had studied on film and


MIAMI DOLPHINS quarterback Chad Pennington pitches the ball during their
38-13 win over the New England Patriots in Foxborough, Mass., last Sunday...


from that standpoint there that was
really what we tried to do."
Pennington was touted as an
upgrade at quarterback when he
signed as a free agent August 8
after being released by the New
York Jets. But two games into this
season, he and the Dolphins were
still waiting for a win.
In the Dolphins 31-10 loss at Ari-
zona on September 14, Pennington
was the Dolphins' second-best
quarterback. Rookie Chad Henne
came off the bench in the fourth
quarter to direct their lone touch-
down drive. In their season opener,
Pennington had 251 yards passing
and two touchdowns against his for-
mer team, but he threw an inter-
ception in the end zone with 5 sec-
onds left to seal the Jets' 20-14 win.
"Offensive football is all about
confidence; it's about confidence
and communication," Pennington
said. "Especially when y'ou have a
young team, instilling -that confi-


dence and being able to see the
benefit of your hard work, to see
the results, that's huge. I think what
our guys have done a great job of is
not losing confidence after our first
two games."
If the Dolphins did have a confi-
dence problem during their first
two games this season, it was for
good reason. Miami is coming off a
depressing 1-15 season and had lost
20 of its previous 21 contests going
into the game against New Eng-
land.
The Dolphins are off this week,
which means the team's next
chance to showcase their new for-
mation and new quarterback is
against San Diego on October 5.
"The feeling that we had after
Sunday as opposed to the feeling
that we had after two weeks ago
Sunday, it's polar opposites," cor-
nerback Andre Goodman said.
'"Joyful and:misery it's a big dif-.
.. ference." .

PITTSBURGH (AP) Willie
Colon doesn't need to be warned
what the Pittsburgh Steelers' offen,
sive line will see Monday night.
Baltimore Ravens linebacker
Ray Lewis rushing up the middle.
Terrell Suggs coming from one
angle, Jarret Johnson from another.
Trevor Pryce might be coming from
anywhere.
"Oh, they're coming, they're
coming," said Colon, the Steelers'
right tackle. "Why not? Wouldn't
you? He (Baltimore coach John
Harbaugh) may take off the head-
phones and come off the sidelines
and rush Ben (Roethlisberger)."
Willingly or not, the Philadelphia
Eagles gave the rest of the NFL a
blueprint for confusing the Steel-
ers by employing a relentless pass
rush during their 15-6 victory Sun-
day one of Pittsburgh's worst
offensive games in the last quar-
ter-century.
The ceaseless pressure resulted in
nine sacks, a safety, a fumble and
an interception. During one eight-
play span, Roethlisberger was
sacked five times and committed
two turnovers.
The Steelers are convinced the
Ravens, already one of the NFL's
most aggressive defenses, will try
to do much the same thing Monday
night, especially with Pro Bowl run-
ning back Willie Parker out with a
knee injury.
As Colon said, why wouldn't
they?
"For the most part, it was just a
lot of communication errors we had
that you can't have and we under-
stand that," Colon said. "We've got
to pick it up and be. more account-
able as a unit. You've got to be able
to make sure it don't happen
again."
Still, nullifying Baltimore's pass
rush can't be accomplished by mak-
ing a tweak here or a minor cor-
rection there, and the Steelers
know it. The Ravens had five sacks
Sunday in beating Cleveland 28-10,
scored on an interception and
drove for another touchdown fol-
lowing an interception.
"They're looking at it, 'If we sack
Ben, we're in the game,"' wide
receiver Hines Ward said. "We're
looking at it as we need to correct
all those mistakes and, if we do,


PHILADELPHIA EAGLES linebacker Trent Cole (right) tackles Ben Roethlisberger,
Steelers quarterback, during the fourth quarter of a game last Sunday in
Philadelphia. Eagles won 15-6...


we'll be OK."
As good as the defense is Bal-
timore (2-0) has allowed the fewest
yards in the league Ward said
the Ravens take chances that can
be exploited downfield if Roethlis-
berger has time to throw and the
receivers don't break off their
routes.
"Until you fix it, it's going to be
the same thing," left tackle Marvel
Smith said. "We did some good
things (in practice) in terms of fix-
ing it, in terms of our communica-
tion."
Against Philadelphia, the Steelers
(2-1) may have badly missed long-
time All-Pro guard Alan Faneca,
who signed with the Jets during the
offseason. Faneca couldn't have
stopped the pass rush by himself,
but he might have prevented some
of the panic that Chris Kemocatu,
his replacement, detected.
"We can't panic," Kemocatu
said. "Last week they got us early in
the game and we kind of panicked.
We've just got to recuperate."
Now the Steelers understand
how their opponents felt years ago
when their defense was known as
Blitzburgh for all the unusual blitz-
ing schemes concocted by defen-
sive coordinator Dick LeBcau.
"We're expecting Baltimore to


bring everything at us," said cen-
ter Justin Hartwig, the other new
offensive line starter this season.
"If they saw that last game, they're
going to bring it, and there's no
doubt about it. And they're going
to be coming from everywhere. But
that's what we're going to be prac-
ticing with all week. ... We will be
able to pick those things up."
One Steelers worry is this isn't a
one-week trend; Roethlisberger's
93 sacks the last two seasons were
the most of any NFL quarterback.
Another concern: Despite their
38-7 loss in Pittsburgh last season,
the Ravens have won four of their
last five against the Steelers.
And, no matter how many carries
he gets, rookie running back
Rashard Mendenhall must do some
blocking, and this will be his first
NFL start.
"They're going to come, they're
coming hard and they're going to
try to get into his (Mendenhall's)
head early in the game," said Park-
er, who could miss two games with
his injury.
"I'm going to be in his ear and
helping him out, that's just the
nature of this business. He's a first-
round draft pick and you've got to
get him ready for times like this,"
he said.


Godfrey's



learning



curve as



Panthers'



starting FS


* By MIKE CRANSTON.
AP Sports Writer
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -
Charles Godfrey had no time to ease
into the NFL.
Six days after the Carolina Panthers
selected him in the third round.of the
draft, Godfrey was working with the
first team at free safety in a minicamp
practice.
It was the beginning of a crash
course on becoming a rookie starter
for a team without depth at safety. He
spent much of training camp attached
to secondary coach Mike Gillhamer,
getting constant instruction between
plays. He quizzed veterans, studied
extra film and managed to avoid any
major mistakes in preseason games.
The start of the regular season has
been a much rockier road for the for-
mer Iowa star.
"When the regular season picks up,
it's another gear," Godfrey said Thurs-
day. "Obviously I had to pick up my
game. The first couple of games, it
kind of was a shock, because I didn't
know what to 'expect. Now I know
what to expect and I know what's
going on."
At times, Godfrey has displayed
tremendous athleticism and speed. He
got his first sack on a safety blitz Sun-
day against Minnesota, and has record-
ed 12 tackles in the past two games.
But Godfrey has also made rookie
gaffes. He was in the wrong coverage
on Philip Rivers' 44-yard touchdown
pass to Chris Chambers in the season
opener at San Diego. Godfrey gave
up Gus Frerotte's 48-yard pass to
Bernard Berrian in Sunday's loss to
Minnesota.
"I think the San Diego play has been
well documented," coach John Fox
said. "The play last week, the guy had
quite, bit::of time to throw-and the
guy made a.great throw and the'guy
made a great catch. I don't know he
was so much out of position. I think
like all plays we can do something a lit-
tle bit better. But I think he's played
pretty well."
Not well enough for the 5-foot-ll
perfectionist, who switched from
receiver to defensive back in high
school so he could "knock somebody
over," then played cornerback and
both safety positions in college.
"My whole game, everything I've
got to improve on," Godfrey said. "I'm
not where I need to be anywhere in
my game. That's one thing about me,
I'm very hard on myself. I have to keep
on improving because I want to be
good, I want to be great."
And Godfrey believes he can be
great. Full of that mandatory confi-
dence to be a defensive back, Godfrey
feels he gives the Panthers plenty of
defensive options missing when they
used a parade of journeymen at safety
the past several years.
"They want me running. They want
me putting pressure on the quarter-
back, going out and covering
receivers," Godfrey said. "That's one
of the upsides I have, I can cover and
then I can also blitz and use my speed.
And I'm a great tackler, also."
Quickly becoming a starter as a
rookie hasn't stopped him from catch-
ing plenty of grief from the veterans.
Punter Jason Baker on Thursday asked
when he was going to cut his long hair.
Linebacker Jason Beason initially
responded to a question about God-
frey by yelling, "Charles Godfrey is
awful!"
But Beason, who knows a little
about facing pressure as a rookie when
he took over for Dan Morgan last sea-
son at middle linebacker, believes
Godfrey has what it takes to be a suc-
cessful safety.
"He doesn't seem to get rattled at
all," Beason said.
A good philosophy when you're a
rookie on the final line of defense.
"It's not about getting beat, it's
about coming back on the next play
and capitalizing," Godfrey said.
"Everybody gets beat, even the best.
Deion (Sanders) got beat and he's one
of the best cover corners to ever play
the game. It's about how you bounce
back. You have to know that as a DB.


You can't get down on yourself."
Notes: KR Ryne Robinson practiced
without restrictions Thursday for the
first time since he sprained his left knee
on July 31, and could play Sunday. "I
definitely feel ready and good to go,"
Robinson said.
LG Travelle Wharton (knee) prac-
ticed again and expects to play for the
first time since the opener.
DE Julius Peppers (illness) and RB
Jonathan Stewart (foot) were limited
in practice.
DE Tyler Brayton, LB Thomas
Davis, LB Na'il Diggs, T Jordan Gross,
S Chris Harris and DE Charles John-
son all practiced after being out or lim-
ited on Wednesday.
