involved

* By CHESTER ROBARDS
Tribune Staff Reporter
A SINGLEgunman could
be to blame for a shooting
spree in two areas late Thurs-
day evening that left three
men in hospital and a 40-year-
old man dead, according to
police.
Officers say the same type
of weapon was used in the
separate incidents. "It is like-
ly that the same gunman may
be responsible for both mat-
ters," said police.
In the first incident, at-
around 11pm, witnesses say a
hooded gunman, about 5ft
6ins tall and dressed in a dark
hooded shirt and blue jeans,
approached a group of men
near the High Noon Club and
began firing shots from a
handgun.
Bullets struck two of the
men in the neck and the 40-
year-old was hit in the shoul-
der and abdomen.
They were rushed to hospi-
tal where at 6am the 40-year-
old died of his injuries. The
other men were detained and
listed in critical condition.
Later that evening a gun-
man, again dressed in dark
clothing, approached a 28-
year-old nfan who was near
his home on Shady Tree
Street and shot him in the left
arm.
He was also rushed to.hos-
pital where his condition is
serious but not life-threaten-
ing.
The victims have not yet
been identified and police are
still looking for a suspect in
both matters.
"Intensive investigations
have commenced into these
shootings," police said.

MORE than 100 Haitians are being held in
Carmichael Road Detention Centre today after
their 40-foot sloop ran aground in the central
Bahamas.
The apprehension of 116 immigrants is the
second in quick succession for the Defence
Force, who picked up 91 more off New Provi-
-dence earlier this week.


The Defence Force was tipped off after wit-
nesses saw the vessel hit rocks off Duncan
Town, Ragged Island, on Wednesday.
Arriving at the scene aboard HMBS Yellow
Elder, officers found 88 men, 23 women and five
children in a dehydrated but mainly "fair" con-
dition, said a Defence Force source.
The immigrants were transported on the
Defence Force vessel to Nassau, arriving at
around 9am yesterday. They were then sent to
be processed by the Department of Immigra-
tion.


Officer in alleged shooting is

'still working' on police force


* By ALISON LOWE
Tribune Staff Reporter
alowe@tribunemedia.net
Contrary to police assurances earlier this year,
The Tribune has evidence indicating that an offi-
cer who allegedly shot and killed Andros resi-
dent Kenneth Russell in 2007 might still be work-
ing on the force after being transferred from the
island.
Calls to a Nassau police station where he was
alleged to be employed, despite a lack of con-


elusion in the case of Russell's killing, confirmed
that an officer with his name and rank is sta-
tioned there.
Relatives of deceased 24-year-old Mr Russell
expressed dismay at this yesterday, saying it con-
firmed what they had known for a long time.
They added that they are "still waiting for clo-
sure" on Kenneth's killing as the police file on his

Police drug seizures across
the Bahamas during the past 10
months now total an estimated
street value in excess of $16 mil-
lion.
Officials claim that Haiti
remains a major regional hub
for drug smugglers who use the
Bahamas as an access point into
the United States.
Acting Commissioner Regi-
nald Ferguson said: "A lot of
our drug troubles are coming
out of Haiti, and it's because
we don't have that kind of rela-
tionship with Haiti at this time
to get police-to-police informa-
tion."
Commissioner Ferguson
added that, because of deterio-
rating conditions in Haiti,
numerous illicit acts continue"
to occur under the radar.,
In a 2007 report in the Los
Angeles Times, it was claimed
by an undercover American
journalist that Haitian police
and cartel forces regularly traf-
fic drugs within the country
without authorities suspecting
anything or probing to prevent
these actions.
In addition to this, the 225-
mile border which separates
Haiti and the Dominican
Republic is seldom secured,
according to reports.
In essence, smuggling opera-
tions are able to manoeuvre
through the country into other
regions such as Venezuela,

Minister assesses



Eight Mile school's



health problems


* By DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport
Reporter
dmaycock@tribunemedia.net

FREEPORT Minister of
Health Dr Hubert Minnis visit-
ed the Eight Mile Rock School
on Thursday after receiving
reports that several teachers
and students were experiencing
various health problems.
"We were informed that
quite a number of students and
teachers were having excessive
coughs, skin irritation, respira-
tory problems, and pink eye,"
he told the media..
Dr Minnis said that they are
presently assessing the situation
and trying to determine how


many individuals at the school
are affected.
"Just reviewing the little
notes that we have seen it looks
more like some form of aller-
gy," he added.
Bahamas Union of Teachers
president Belinda Wilson,
school superintendent Hezekiah
Dean and senior health officers
were also at the school.
The minister said that he has
been made aware of the vari-
ous health issues at Eight Mile
Rock High, including possible
mould growth and bat drop-
pings, as well as the many other
problems there.
Two weeks ago, Parent
Teacher Association (PTA)
officials expressed grave con-
cerns about the condition of the


classrooms. At the time, 18 of
the 40 classrooms had been
identified as a health risk
because of the serious rodent,
bat, and pigeon infestations.
Dr Minnis said that the Min-
istry of Health will request that
Environmental Health conduct
an assessment of the school.
"We need to make a deter-
mination whether these prob-
lems are contributing to the
health problem of teachers and
students.
"We need to find the cause
and I think Environmental
Health will be able to help us
with that and come up with a
solution," he said.
In the meantime, Dr Minnis
stated that health officials will
conduct screenings of the affect-
ed individuals.
"Once we examine them and
make a determination that it is
an allergy, we will have an aller-
gy specialist review the records
and patients," he said.


@ In brief

THE Cancer Society of
the Bahamas will hold its 4th
Annual "Stride for Life"
Health Walk today at 6am.
As before, the goal of this
awareness walk is to contin-
ue sending the message to
the public that there is hope,
healing and life after being
diagnosed with cancer, and
to encourage the general
public to adopt healthy
behaviours.
The walk is this year being
held in conjunction with the
Susan G Komen Breast Can-
cer Foundation to also draw
attention to the recently
launched Bahamas Breast
Cancer Initiative.
The cost is $15 for adults
and $10 for kids.

EIOIAULE' S T HEEITOR


NEW YORK -- A little more than two
weeks ago, when Barack Obama and John
McCain met for the second presidential
debate, Sen. Obama spoke up for his alter-
.native-energy plan by invoking perhaps
this nation's greatest achievement:
"Now, when JFK said we're going to the
moon in 10 years, nobody was sure how
to do it, but we understood that, if the
American people make a decision to do
something, it gets done."
This week, India, which started its space-
programme in the same year that Neil
Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin planted the
U.S. flag on the lunar surface, launched its
own mission to the moon. Unlike Apollo
11, the Indian Chandrayaan spacecraft that
lifted off from an island in the Bay of Ben-
gal Wednesday was not manned, but it
does reflect a national spirit that our coun-
try once possessed, and which we will fail to
reclaim at our own peril.
How to define that spirit?
Some inside and outside of India have
been critical of the Chandrayaan moon
shot, saying that even at its relatively mod-
est $78 million price tag, thecost of the
mission represents an expenditure that the
country can little afford, given the fact that
millions of its inhabitants still live in con-
ditions of crushing poverty.
But the mission's advocates point to
Chandrayaan as a first step toward scien-
tific goals that aretworthy of the expendi-
ture. Some of these goals are of a practical
nature, such as determining the prevalence
of helium-3, a rare isotope that could be
used as an energy source, and constructing
a three-dimensional map of the lunar sur-
face, which could facilitate future missions
for mining lunar resources. And some of
these goals serve pure science, such as
experiments designed to learn more about
the moon's origins.
They also point to the burgeoning space
programmes of China and Japan, and

emphasize Intlia's need to prove itself wor-
thy of a share of the growing market for
launching private satellites.
All these goals, poetic and prosaic, add
up to vision long-term, beyond-the-
immediate-horizon vision. This is the kind
of vision that is given much lip service in
our own political rhetoric. But when it
comes to practice, some in America have
said in recent years that we can't afford it,
just as some are still saying that now -
not in the midst of a Global War on Ter-
rorism, not as we face the worst financial
crisis since the Great Depression, not as we
contemplate enormous projected budget.
deficits.
In 1962, President John F. Kennedy
called upoh America to put a man on the
moon and return him safely, among other
goals, "not because they are easy but
because they are hard." In the years that
followed, our nation fought the Vietnam
War and launched, in the Great Society,
some of its most ambitious social pro-
grammes. We saw our society divided over
issues of race and war. And yet, in 1969,
Kennedy's goal saw fruition.
The lesson is not only that we as a nation
can achieve great things even in difficult
times, but that our ambition toachieve
great things is a necessary engine of
progress. Despite what we might like to
tell ourselves, America has never had a
monopoly on this kind of forward-looking
spirit. But there was a time when we sure-
-ly had the world's largest supply of it.
India's own reach into space serves as a
much-needed reminder that, at the start
of this new century, the rest of the world is
catching up. And if America wishes to stay
* great, we need to discover once again the
ambition to not only survive the present but
also capture and define the future.

Recapturing the American spirit


EDITOR, The Tribune.
IT appeared to be good news
that Water & Sewer Corp are
laying new plastic water mains.
The working level contractors
and employees on the project
have been very co-operative
and helpful in efforts to incon-
venience the public as little, as
possible in their tasks.

Unfortunately somewhere at
the management, supervisory
or engineering level we have
had a sad performance gap that
has.cost residents thousands of
man hours of added clean-up
work and has been destructive
to the plant life and to general
tourist image of this island."
Simply arranging to have a
large water tanker with sprin-
kler system that could have fol-
lowed closely behind the trench-
ing machinery would have pre-
-vented almost all of the dust
generated. There was very little
dust from the trencher itself
because the sub soil was suffi-
ciently damp briefly. However
as soon as backfilling com-
menced, the passing auto traffic
stirred huge dust clouds that
blighted the entire 'area and
continued for several days. Per-
sons driving from the extreme
east end must have suffered


through a dust storm going to
and from their work places for
several weeks.
If Water & Sewer couldn't
otherwise acquire, rent, lease
or contract for a water tanker's
services then it would have beeri
a great time for the Fire Depart-
ment to exercise and drill their
personnel by hosing down the
roadway.
The cost of providing reason-
able dust control would proba-
bly have cost the economy a few
thousand dollars. A pittance
compared to the value of thou-
sands of man hours of residents
cleaning up the mess left by
Water & Sewer Corp.

End the blame


game right now


EDITOR, The Tribune.
I apologise for writing to you
again so soon after my last let-
ter. However there have been a
number of articles in the news-
papers recently on the "blame
game" where the FNM and the
PLP blame each other for the
economic mess we are in today.
I would like to say enough is
enough.
We all know we are in a mess
and I am sure most people do
not care who was responsible
at this time. This will be decided
at the next election. What we
want is for the mess to be sorted
out so that we can get on with
our lives in peace and prosper-
ity!
Therefore it would be helpful
if the political class pulled what-
ever brain power they have and
"together" sort out our prob-
lems. I am sure there are good
thinkers in all the political par-
ties anedwe need them to con-
centrate on a resolution of the
problems and not waste time
and resources on 'blaming"


each other. And if.they do not
have the brains to help they
should keep quiet. I read a
headline today which said: "PM
is accused of making unflatter-
ing comments on.public ser-
vants performance".
Anyone who has dealt with
public servants will I am sure
agree with the PM's comments,
and the bad eggs overshadow
the good eggs and there are
many on both sides. Can we for-
get about re-election, please,
and put your minds together to
get the people who are now on
two-day weeks and cannot pay
their food bills and electricity
bills back to work.
While on the subject of elec-
tricity bills, perhaps that is one
place to start the '.thinking"
process. Why do we have to pay
rates per kw that appear to be
at least double other countries?
Can someone explain in simple
terms, what is wrong with BEC?

Murder accused



to remain in jail


"Family & Friends Fun Filled Date STM 2008"
St. Thomas More Parish


A man who was recently granted bail on a
murder charge will now remain behind bars after
being charged with causing grievous harm to a
prison inmate.
Cohen Lightbourne, 29, who was on remand at
Her Majesty's Prison, has been charged with
causing grievous harm to inmate Damion Stuart
while at the prison.
Court dockets allege that Lightbourne, a resi-
dent of Pinewood Gardens, on Tuesday, October
14, caused harm to Stuart.
Lightbourne, who appeared before Chief Mag-
istrate Roger Gomez at Court No One Bdnk
Lane on Thursday, pleaded not guilty to the
charge, but was denied bail and remanded to Her
Majesty's Prison.
Lightbourne is charged in the murder of Carl
Russell. Russell, a resident of Chippingham, was.
shot and killed at a residence in Pride Estates in
July, 2007. Prosecutors said that Lightbourne
had recently been granted bail on the murder
charge by the Supreme Court.
However, he was charged with causing grievous


harm before his release. The case has been
adjourned to January 29, 2009.
In other court news, a 27-year-old man of Yel-
low Elder Gardens was arraigned in a Magis-
trate's Court yesterday on marijuana and cocaine
possession charges.
Court dockets allege that Deon Rolle was
found in possession of a quantity of marijuana
with the intent to supply the drugs to another. It
is also alleged that on the same day, Rolle was
found in possession of a quantity of cocaine. The
prosecution claimed that Rolle was found in pos-
session of three plastic wraps of marijuana and
one plastic wrap of cocaine.
Rolle, who appeared before Chief Magistrate
Roger Gomez at Court No One Bank Lane,
admitted that he was found in possession ofia
bag of marijuana seed, but denied that he was
found in possession of cocaine. Not guilty pleas
were entered on both counts.
Rolle was granted bail in the sum of $5,000
with one surety. The case has been adjourned to
February 24,2009.


Ground broken for new

Girl Guide headquarters


GROUND has been bro-
ken for the building of the
Bahamas Girl Guides Associ-
ation's new headquarters at
their current site in Marcus
_ Bethel Way.
A ceremony attended by
Governor General Arthur
-Hanna, Dame MArguerite Pin-
Sdling, minister of youth, sports
and culture Desmond Bannis-
ter, and minister for labour
6 and social development Loret-
Sta Butler-Turner, was an
important moment for hun-
dreds of guides, guiders, coun-
cil members, rangers, brown-
ies and sunflowers, many of
whom attended the event on
October 3.
While the 'Guard Hut' has'
served them well since the
1940s, the popular association
has been searching foir more
space for'a nunibef r f 'a
BGGA prrcidlenti Dd'C'i ,
Saunders said.
The present site, adjacent


to the Guides camp site in the
area, has been extended to
accommodate the new head-
quarters building.
The eastern building and
adjoining kitchen will be pre-
served as historic monuments
while the new building goes
up. Minister Desmond Ban-
nister said the new headquar-
ters will'enable the Girl Guide
Association to.enhance their
activities.
He said: "It will help.it to
achieve its goals of self-train-
ing in the development of
character through service to
others; to foster love of coun-
try, love of nature and encour-
agement of international
goodwill and understanding


by establishing friendly con-
tacts with girls of other
nations.
"Now more than ever in the
Bahamas and indeed all over
the world with a multitude of
serious social problems, the
association needs to expand
and assist our young people
by engaging them in whole-
some activities. In this way the
anti-social behaviour being
experienced will diminish."

Government human resource personnel



urged to revolutionise service


N By LLONELLA GILBERT
Bahamas Information Services

MINISTER of State for Finance and
the Public Service Zhivargo Laing urged
human resource managers and officers in-
the civil service to come up with an
action plan to revolutionise and trans-
form how they do their business.
Minister Laing issued the challenge
on Thursday during a workshop,
designed to. improve the delivery of
human resources to facilitate first-class
service in partnership with stakehold-
ers.
The Department of Public Service set
u p the workshop for human resource
personnel with four goals:
Strengthening their potential for
intuitive thinking, creativity and inno-
vation to enhance their human resource
management skills.
Identifying htiman resource chal-
lenges in the public service.
w Exploring best practices in human
resources to improve the delivery of ser-
vices.
Analysing and developing partici-
pants' institutional capacity to improve
the efficiency of the public service
"through information technology and
quality service to its internal and external
customers.
Minister Laing said there are thou-
sands of people who have a positive
experience being served by public ser-
vants, but there are many who do not.
"I am also fully aware," he said, "that
there are thousands more Bahamians
whose interaction with the service leaves
them with a sense that these people, do
not understand they work for us, we do
not work for them."
Mr Laing said Prime Minister Hubert


"Bringing Value as a"
Leader", "A.Day at the
Zoo" and "No Excuse Man-
agement" were just some of
the training topics discussed
during recent management

Ingraham is very serious about bring-
ing changes to the public service to
increase customer satisfaction and effi-
ciency.
The prime minister has charged the
Minister of State for Finance with
responsibility of improving the public
service, and the workshop for the human
resource professionals is one step in
bringing that goal to fruition.
Mr Laing said the government intends
to implement changes that should result
in improvements in how human resource
departments are run. For example, he
said the Annual Confidential Report
(ACR), which is the name given to the
appraisal forms for civil servants, will be
made simpler and more user friendly.
."Additionally," Mr Laing said, "we
have to get results in terms of turning
those ACRs around more quickly. It
cannot be that people go three or five
years without getting an appraisal done
and then somebody attempts to give me
an appraisal of somebody for five years
running.
."You cannot convince me that you
can remember anybody's performance
from five years ago. They need to be
timely."
Minister Laing also challenged the
human resources personnel to remem-
ber they work with human beings and as
such, they should treat employees as
they themselves would want to be treat-
ed.
-He said they should have more com-
munication with staff, keeping them
informed as to their potential to move
up in the service.,
Mr Laing suggested that this might
create less frustration among civil ser-
vants who feel they are not progressing
in their organizations.

Halloween is full of fun
things that families enjoy, but
it's one of those holidays
enjoyed more by people than
by pets.
The Bahamas Humane Soci-
ety (BHS) is asking that the pub-
lic keep several precautions in
mind when preparing for the fes-
tivities, in an effort to help
ensure that every member of the
family ,- including the pet -
has a safe Halloween and Guy
Fawkes Day.

THE BHS ASKED THAT FAMIlES:
Keep pets in a quiet place,
away from trick-or-treaters and
other Halloween activities.
"You may know that the
miniature monsters arid goblins
who come knocking on Hal-
loween aren't real, but pets
don't," the BHS said. "Dogs and
cats are creatures of habit and
could become frightened or agi-
tated by the unaccustomed sights
and sounds of costumed visitors.
In addition, frequently opened
doors provide a perfect oppor- .
tunity for escape, which can go
unnoticed during all the com-
motion. Be sure all pets are
wearing collars and ID. tags in
case of an accidental getaway.
Place live flame Guy Fawkes
figures and decorations like can-
dles and jack-o'-lanterns out of
the reach of pets. "Curious crit-,
ters risk being singed dr burned
by the flame they could also
easily knock over a candle or
pumpkin and cause a fire."
Don't let the family dog
accompany the children on their
trickc-or-treat outing. "Children
may have a difficult time han-
dling a pet during the festivities
and your pooch could get loose,
especially if your dog is spooked
by the strange sights and sounds
of trick-or-treaters," the BHS
said.
Keep decorations that pets
could chew on like streamers
and fake spider webs and
wires and cdrds from electric
vdc ioritions out of reach. "If pets
-chomp on- Halloween decora-'
tionstaey could choke or may
become ill and, if they chew on
electrical cords, they risk a
potentially deadly electrical
shock. Pets could also become
tangled and injured by dangling
cords or decorations."
Consider tranquilizers. "If
you know that your pet is very
frightened of loud noises please
contact your veterinarian to pur-
chase a sedative to keep the pet
calm," the BHS said. "This will
prevent injuries to the pet and
damage to furniture."

However, The Tribune could
find no record of such a regula-

It was Ms Dean who, in April
of this year, first alleged that
the officer who is claimed to
have shot her brother was still
working, despite Commissioner
Reginald Ferguson's April,
2008, suggestion that he had
been suspended.
Mr Ferguson dismissed her
claim as a "rumour" at the time,
saying the officer would remain
suspended on half-pay until a
conclusion on the matter is
reached in the coroner's court.
When this newspaper con-
tacted the stations to which Ms
Dean said the officer and two
other Andros colleagues
involved in'the incident had
been transferred and asked for
them by name, officers con-
firmed that men by those names
work there.
Contacted for comment on
this finding later, Mr Ferguson
said he was unconvinced that
this is the case and would have
to "check and see what's going
on." He said that suspension of
the officer and a pay cut is what
"should have happened'' in a
case such as this, adding how-
ever that whether an officer is
interdicted is determined on a,
"case by case" basis.
"What I outlined to you is
normally the course of action
that is taken in matters of that
nature. Especially if the matter
had gone to the coroner's court
as I remember it did, that that is
the way it would have gone
(suspension of the officer)."
He said that usually "what-
ever the (coroner's) ruling is
(the police) will be guided by
that" in its decision as to how to
handle an officer in such cases.
"I will have to check and see
whether it has been concluded,
brought to closure, or whatever
the situation was," said the


commissioner.
The fact that the officer still
appears to be working while no
conclusion has yet been reached
in the case attracted the atten-
tion of human rights organisa-
tion Amnesty International.
The organisation previously
highlighted Kenneth's death in
their 2008 "State of the World's
Human Rights" report released
earlier this year.
Police recommended there
should be an inquest into the
matter in November last year.
Kenneth's mother, 52-year-
old Alma Russell, said: "I've
just been hoping that they
would say or do something...but
there's been nothing."
Her son's death on Septem-
ber 2, 2007, sparked outrage in
Andros.
He had been at the Club
Cabana bar in Lowe Sound with
some friends when they were
approached by officers from the
mobile patrol unit on the island.
Police claimed there was a
"confrontation" between the
friends and police before Ken-
neth was shot at close range,
but other witnesses disputed
this version of events.
Ms Russell now looks after
her grandson, a year-old tod-
dler who was born shortly after
Kenneth died. -
The grandmother said she
was "so amazed" when she
heard her grandson call out for
his father recently, despite being
too young to have met him
before he died.
"He looks through the win-
dow and says 'Daddy!...Dad-
dy!'. And I wonder, who does
he think he's talking.to? Does
he -- -ly think he sees him? It
t heart." A message left
I attorney General seek-
ing ment yesterday was not
returned up to press time.


Albany blockade investigated

big contractors who already had
million dollar deals, he claims.
Albany's managing partner
Christopher Anand maintains,
60 of the .63 construction firms
hired to date are Bahamian.
Blocking roads is a criminal
offence and Asst Commissioner
Hulan Hanna said the matter is
"-.being looked into but was reluc-
tant to pre-empi in% estigations.
Minister of Labour Dion
Foulkes said: "If there is a legit-
imate complaint I think some
kind of representation should,


be made to the Department of
Labour.
"If our labour employment
laws are being breached I can
investigate it. In terms of a com-
pany having the freedom- to
contract whoever they wish, it
seems companies should have
.that right.
"Surely the government can-
not dictate to a private devel-
oper whom they should conduct
business Vith '
;Mr Foulkes said Albany lad
' been sincere in terms of dealing'
with Bahamian companies, even
hosting a job fair, and he had
received no complaints about


how the work had been distrib-
uted.
u He added: "If a complaint is
made to the Ministry of Labour
I would definitely investigate it.
It doesn't seem to be the type of
case where Albany is breaking
our labour laws.
"Insofar as the Labour laws
are concerned, that is what
would concern my ministry, and
the government would gener-
ally ybe 'dnfident about Bahami-
an.icoinpanies accessing oppor-
tunities.
"But'we cannot tell develop-
ers how they should do busi-
ness."


Haiti drug link fears


FROM page one

country, and continuing eco-
nomic problems.
Haitian Embassy sources said
drug transport planes have for
years smuggled drugs between
Haiti and Venezuela.
Major Venezuelan drug traf-
fickers have some of their deal-
ers stationed in Haiti where
drugs including marijuana and
cocaine are grown, manufac-
tured, packaged and shipped,
not just to Venezuela, but to
major cities in Europe, the
Bahamas and other locations.
It was also confirmed by Mr
Ferguson that, based on infor-
mation retrieved from Haiti and
locally, numerous drug ship-
ments are destined for the
Bahamas.
A US Embassy official said

arriving in the Bahamas are
often littered with drugs, human,
cargo and ammunition.
Many of these items are des-
Itined for the Bahamas, but oth-
ers are repackaged for illegal
importation into the US.
National Security permanent
secretary Missouri Sherman-
Peter said the goal of eliminat-


ing drug and human.trafficking
through and to the Bahamas is a
long-term plan.
"It's police, it's defence force,
it's immigration, it's not a thing
to be taken lightly."
. She added that because of the
Bahamas' location between
North and South America, the
country was vulnerable to
smugglers.,

Arrests in

kidnap plot

FROM page one

The alleged plot started in
Montreal, included multiple
meetings in Boston and an
August 11 meeting at a Star-
bucks in Williston where the
agent was given a $10,000
cash down payment, court
documents say.
The last meeting was Octo-
ber 15 at a restaurant at
Logan Airport in Boston.
where Djokich allegedly met
with the undercover agent to
finalize the details of the
killing, which was to take
place in Florida.
The agent allegedly asked
Djokich, the only suspect
present, to clarify that he
wanted the target killed.
In the affidavit, dated last
Friday, Immigration and Cus-
toms Enforcement Special
Agent Derek Dunn says he
first became aware of the
case in July when a confi-
dential informant was
approached in Montreal on
behalf of two men who
turned out to be Djokich and
Deangelis.
The affidavit says Djokich
and other investors believed
they had been defrauded in
an investment venture with
a company in which Richard
Devries of Calgary was a
principal. The affidavit does
not describe the venture.
The informant was initially
asked to go, to the Bahamas
and force Devries, who lived
in the Bahamas, to wire back
the money.

Once upon a time there lived a

very good reason why he was known
by this name.
Charlie wasn't much of a player,
as bridge players go. He generally
bid badly and had to suffer the con-
sequences of this failing. But he was
very good when it came to playing
the cards.
In particular, he was especially
,good at executing endplays, and

bften redeemed poor contracts with
his extraordinary aptitude in this
area.
Moreover, he was also gifted
when it came to defending against
. endplays. More than anything else,
Charlie loathed getting caught in an
endplay, and he would go to any
lengths to prevent this from happen-
ing.
Consider the play he once made
on this deal. Holding the East hand,
he won the diamond lead with the
queen and continued with the ace.
Declarer ruffed and played a high
trump. Charlie took the ace and
returned a trump.
South won in his hand and led the
ace of clubs, on which Charlie
dropped the king! As a result,
declarer lost two heart tricks and
went down one.
What would have happened had
Charlie played the six of clubs on the
ace, as any normal human being
would have done? In that case,
declarer could have made the con-
tract by following low from dummy
on the next club lead, and Charlie.
would have found himself thor-
oughly endplayed after taking the
king. Whatever he returned, South
would score the rest of the tricks.
Many players tried, but they sel-
dom succeeded in endplaying End-
play Charlie!

Manning had

staph infection

in the left knee

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) A staph
infection in a bursa sac in Peyton Man-
ning's left knee led to the surgery that
kept him out of much of the Indianapolis
Colts' preseason training camp, the team
confirmed Friday.
But team officials denied reports,Man-
ning had a highly virulent form of staph
infection that is difficult to treat called
methicillin-resistant staphylococcus
aureus (MRSA).
"At no time did he have MRSA," a
team statement said.
The team, responding to reports that
the staph infection prompted both of
Manning's preseason left knee surgeries,
said that was the case only with the first
procedure, which removed the bursa sac.
The second operation was to tack skin
together to eliminate the space left by
the removal, the team said.
The Colts, who have struggled to a 3-3
start this season, said Manning first devel-
. oped swelling in the bursa in late Febru-
ary, which doctors treated by~draining it
and with anti-inflammatory agents.
Signs of infection appeared while Man-
ning was in New Orleans in July, prompt-
ing surgery to remove the bursa sac and
treatment with antibiotics to eliminate
the infection, the team statement said.
The Indianapolis Star 'first reported
Manning's staph infection Friday.
The Colts said the second surgery did
not "materially" delay Manning's recov-
ery..
"The second procedure was in no way,
shape or form, related to the infection,"
the team said.
The Colts and Manning confirmed the
second knee operation-for the first time
just last week.
Manning is the second high-profile
quarterback to battle knee infections
recently.
Tom Brady of the New England Patri-
ots reportedly had additional surgery to
clear infections from his injured left knee.
Brady was hurt in the season opener and
is out for the year.

Sevens Rugby differs from
traditional Fifteens Rugby and

Each game is limited to 15
minutes of regulation time with
more emphasis on speed and

strength and it allows for a more
high impact scoring plays.

Nigeria can't
afford to stap

'08 under-17
World Cup

ZURICH, Switzerland (AP)
The host of the 2009 under-
17 World Cup was unclear Fri-
day after Nigeria said it could
not afford to stage the tourna-
ment and Mexico offered to
step in.
FIFA said Nigeria is "no
longer in a position to provide
its support" for the tournament,
scheduled for October 24-
November 15. Soccer's world
body must now decide whether
to help finance Nigeria or look
elsewhere.
FIFA executive committee
member Chuck Blazer, who
represents the CONCACAF
region, said Mexico is ready if
needed. Mexico is scheduled to
host the 24-team tournament in
2011. "They have offered them-
selves and we are very proud
of the fact," Blazer said. "They
have a very good and ready
infrastructure."

Goodell says 'Pacman'


could play in NFL again


NEW YORK (AP) Roger
Goddell is leaving open the pos-
sibility that suspended corner-
back Adam "Pacman" Jones
could play again in the NFL,
but made it clear the oft-trou-
bled player must first work
through his off-field issues.
The commissioner said on
ESPN Radio's Mike & Mike in
the 'Morning show that he's
grown weary of the trouble
caused by Jones, who checked
into an alcohol treatment facil-
ity after his latest suspension
for violating the league's per-
sonal conduct policy.
"I've been consistent on this
one.
"He has to recognize his
responsibility to play in the
NFL," Goodell said from Lon-
don, where the San Diego
Chargers and New Orleans


Saints are preparing to play
Sunday.
"He has not made good deci-
sions," Goodell added. "I think
after this latest incident it was
clear to me there was something.
else going on that we need to
evaluate and we need to address
directly."
Only six weeks after being
, reinstated from a 17-month sus-
pension because of repeated
legal problems, Jones ran into
trouble again when he was
involved in an alcohol-related
scuffle October 7 with one of
his bodyguards at a private par-
ty in Dallas.
The Cowboys had employed
the bodyguards to try to keep
Jones out of trouble.
Team owner Jerry Jones said
Monday that his latest reclama-
tion project had entered an


alcohol treatment facility "in
another part of the country"
and that it was done entirely
through and by the NFL.
The league declined to com-
ment, but has said Jones' rein-
statement will depend on strict
compliance with treatment
plans and an evaluation by
"clinical experts."
Goodell plans to determine
the full length of the suspension
after the Cowboys play Novem-
ber 16 at Washington.
He has said a lifetime ban
remains a possibility.
"If he can deal with whatever
issues he may have, handle his
responsibilities, make good
decisions, then he may have an
opportunity to play again in the
league," Goodell said.
"I'm frankly tired of talking
about it right now."


Redskins' Rogers matures


into top-notch cornerback


IN THIS October 9, 2008 file photo, Dallas Cowboys' Adam "Pacman" Jones prepares to participate in practice

AP Sports Writer
ASHBURN, Va. (AP) -
Carlos Rogers seemed destined
to become one of those high
first-round draft picks who nev-
er quite lived up to his poten-
tial.
He was developing into a ser-
viceable starting cornerback,
relying on his raw talent with-
out taking the game as seriously
as he should. Surely the Wash-
ingtqn Redskins weren't-getting
full value for a player chosen
with the ninth overall selection
in the 2005 draft..
"As a rookie, you come in,
you got a little money," Rogers
said. "You want to go out and
do things."
That's out on the town not
out on the field. Rogers didn't
study video or take care. of his
body like a true pro. He became
known for dropping potential
interceptions and little else. It
was easy to tell by his body lan-
guage that he was coasting
through the NFL life.
. This year, it is almost as if
there is a new Carlos Rogers
wearing No. 22. He's still smil-


ing, but it's a smile brimming
with confidence knowing that
he's finally figured things out.
For the first time in his career,
he is playing like a top comer-
back, shutting down the oppo-
nents' top receivers.
Rogers is tied for second in
the league in deflected passes
with 11 and has yet to be beaten
for a touchdown this season.
He's a key reason the Redskins
are off to a 5-2 start with a
defense ranked sixth in the NFL.
"He started to focus," defensive
coordinator Greg Blache said.
"He started to concentrate on
the detail of the game, and that's
one of the big parts of becoming
a professional.... All of a sudden,
all the wires connected. All the
,pieces fit. All of a sudden, the
light came on, 'Hey, I'm a big-
time comer.'
"He's always been fearless,
but now he's got this knowledge
and this' confidence to go along
with his courage and that natur-
al athletic ability to become a
big-time player."
Over the last three games,
Rogers has corralled three
standout receivers: DeSean
Jackson of the Philadelphia


Eagles, Torry Holt of the St.
Louis Rams and Braylon
Edwards. of the Cleveland
Browns.
Edwards, held to four catches
for 58 yards, said he was frus-
trated virtually the entire game
while facing Rogers in the Red-
skins' 14-11 victory. His play has
made the nagging injuries to vet-
eran cornerback Shawn Springs,
who has already missed three
games this season, more bear-
able.
"Last year, he was sort of like
a puppy out there, smiling and
laughing," Blache said. "But
(now) when he walks into the
meeting room, there's a cold-
ness, almost-a hitman kind of
thing: 'This is what I've got to
learn. This what I've got to do.'
His preparation is totally differ-
ent."
Rogers said he used to' take a
shower immediately after mid-
week practices so that he could
beat a path out the door once
the final meetings were over.
Now he'll spend time in the ice
tub instead he hates it, but
it's good for the muscles and
will stay later to watch video to
prepare for the next game.

0-7 Bengals going


to Houston for


flashback game


* By JOE KAY
AP Sports Writer
CINCINNATI (AP) Dick
LeBeau predicted a win. Chad
Johnson went ahead and guar-
anteed it. Remarkably, both
turned out to be right.'
The last time the Cincinnati
Bengals went to Houston, they
were 0-7 and awfully chatty for
a winless team. Even the odds-
makers expected them to lose
that 2002 game against the Tex-
ans, an expansion team that had
never before been favored.
Cincinnati 38, Houston 3.
The losing streak was over -
for one week.
As they get ready to head
back to Houston this weekend,
the Bengals have the same
record but few parallels with
that team of six years ago.
LeBeau is the defensive coor-
dinator in Pittsburgh. Johnson
has changed his last name to
Ocho Cinco. And there's a
whole lot less hubris this time
around.
"There's really no room to
talk trash," Ocho Cinco said.
That '02 Bengals bunch had
no trouble.
LeBeau was in the final year
of his contract. During mini-
camp that year, he donned a
Superman shirt and ran through
a banner that said, "Bengals
Super Bowl 2002." When the
team fell to 0-7 with a 30-24 loss
to Tennessee, LeBeau got emo-
tional after the game.
"We had every opportunity
to win, and next week we will
win," he said, his voice rising
for emphasis.
Told of his coach's predic-
tion, Johnson went one step fur-
ther.
"Next week, I assure you a
win," he said. "I guarantee you
we will win."
It was the first time the sec-
ond-year receiver went out on a
limb that way. He backed it up
by catching one of Jon Kitna's
four touchdown passes against
the Texans, who were 2-5 head-
ing into the game and had the
Bengals' inflammatory quotes
posted on their bulletin boards
for inspiration.
Afterward, LeBeau played
down how his prediction had
come true.
"I didn't know my powers of
clairvoyance were so omnipo-
tent," he said. "I just wanted


them (the Bengals) to know I
was proud of them and I
believed that."
He was done predicting, and
the Bengals were done winning.
They lost their next. six games
before winning another,,and
finished the season a franchise-
worst 2-14. LeBeau was fired
and Marvin Lewis was brought
in as head coach.
Only four players remain
from the 2002 team: Ocho Cin-
co, receiver T.J. Housh-
mandzadeh, left tackle Levi
Jones and long-snapper Brad
St. Louis. Ocho Cinco had for-
gotten about his guarantee until
he was reminded this week.
Houshmandzadeh didn't
remember too much about the
game, either.
"What's funny is I did play
that game," said Housh-
mandzadeh, who had three
catches. "I played that game
and I never thought I was going
to play that game. Let's just say
I went to bed that night at 4
o'clock in the morning. I went
to bed late because I didn't
think I'd play."
Just like in 2002, the Bengals
are heading to Houston as an
underdog. The Texans are 2-4,
coming off wins over Miami
and winless Detroit. They've
never won three in a row.in
their brief history. They" were
a 10 1/2-point favorite at the
start of the week.
The Bengals? A loss on Sun-
day would drop fhem to 0-8 for
the fifth time in franchise his-
tory. Their worst start was 0-10
in 1993 under Dave Shula.
They've also started 0-8 three
other times: 1978, 1991 and
1994.
Cincinnati is coming off a 38-
10 loss to Pittsburgh, their most
lopsided defeat of the season.
Although there's been no pre-
dicting and no guaranteeing,
there was a sense of optimism
that good things could happen
again in Houston.
"I honestly think we're going
to win every game," Housh-
mandzadeh said. "Last week I
was like, 'Man, Pittsburgh is 4-
1,' but going into the game I
thought we were going to beat
them. That didn't happen. But I
think the same thing this week:
We're going to win.
"Eventually we're going to
win, and hopefully it's sooner
rather than later."


Goodell: Ad

revenues


dropping -for


NFL games


By MATTIAS KAREN
AP Sports Writer
LONDON (A P) Broad-
casters are already seeing a drop
in advertising revenue for NFL
games because of the global
economic crisis, league com-
missioner Roger Goodell said
Friday.
At a conference on the glob-
alization of sports held ahead
of Sunday's NFL game in Lon-
don, Goodell also reiterated
that the league will face chal-
lenges in the current economic
climate, but that the NFL is
"incredibly strong" and should
weather the downturn relAtive-
ly unscathed. :
However, he said network
Partners are already reporting
that advertisers are pulling
back, both on a local and
national level
"The sales market is differ-
ent than it was even several
weeks ago," Goodell said dur-
ing a panel discussion with
Richard Scudamore, the chief
executive of the English Pre-
mier League. "We see it pri-
marily on a local level, which I
think is through a large extent a
reflection of what is happening
in the automobile industry. But
it has. now in the recent weeks
gone to the national level. It's
had an impact. The fortunate
thing is that it hasn't had an
impact on our viewership."
Goodell did not give any spe-
cific figures for the advertising
drop, and was not available for
media interviews after the dis-
cussion, which was moderated
by CBS announcer Jim Nantz.
Goodell said he was confi-
dent that ad sales for the games
would stabilize even in the short
term, adding that holding onto
sponsors would be a bigger
long-term problem for the
league.
"That's something we are
evaluating, whether there will
be a long-term change in the
way companies invest in spon-
sorships, and how they do that,"
he said. "And that could impact
us well beyond 2009."
But even with all profession-
al sports already feeling the
squeeze of the credit crunch,
Goodell was confident that the
NFL's products should stay in
High demand.
"It's hard to see that people
are going to give up quality in a
time like this," he said. "I think
we are the ones who have the
potential to come through it the
strongest if we're intelligent
about it."
The NFL is staging its second
game at Wembley on Sunday,
when the New Orleans Saints
face the San Diego Chargers.
The game is a way for the NFL
to continue its growth abroad.
The NBA and NHL have also
staged games in Europe over
the last two years:
But with the Premier League
already established as one of
the most popular in the world,
Scudamore said he didn't feel
threatened that American
sports would take away revenue
from football.
"I don't see really that we're
competing," Scudamore said. "I
think it's an awfully big pond
out there that we all fish in."

Ferguson not surprised at Blatter



Beckham's proposed move securays


ZURICH, Switzerland
(AP) Countries hoping to
stage the 2018 and 2022
World.Cups were left wait-
ing for details on the bidding
process Friday after FIFA
executive committee mem-
bers failed to agree on a
timetable to choose a host
for the tournaments.
They were considering a
proposal from FIFA presi-
dent .Sepp Blatter to kick off
a combined search for coun-
tries to stage the 2018 and
2022 tournaments.
The issue will go before
the next executive meeting
in Tokyo in December.
Candidates to host the
2018 World Cup include
Mexico, the United States,
England, Spain, a combined
Netherlands-Belgium bid,
Russia, Australia, Qatar,
China and Japan.
With the 2010 tournament
being played in South Africa
and the 2014 event in Brazil,
a northern hemisphere
venue is expected for 2018.

MANCHESTER, England
(AP) --- Alex Ferguson isn't
surprised that David Beckham
could return to European soc-
cer on a loan deal because he
believes the former England
captain is used to a higher stan-
dard than is played in Major
League Soccer.
"It is hardly a surprise," said
the Manchester United manag-
er, who sold Beckham to Real
Madrid five years ago. "Going
to the United States does not
get you the kind of football he is
used to. It is not the right level
of football, therefore coming
back into the mainstream of the
game is not a surprise."
Beckham could move to AC
Milan from the Los Angeles
Galaxy in January, although the
MLS team wants him back
before its season starts in
March. There is speculation,
however, that Milan may'try
and turn the loan deal into a
full transfer.
Beckham has played for the
Galaxy for two seasons and the
team has failed each time to
reach the playoffs.
With the MLS season com-
ing to an end, Beckham needs
to continue playing competitive
soccer or he will lose his place in
the England squad.
England coach Fabio Capel-
lo, who used to be at Milan, sent
Beckham on as a late substitute
in the team's four World Cup
qualifying victories and is

African nations were put into

Beasley arrives in Miami




to give Wade an assist


M By TIM REYNOLDS
AP Sports Writer
MIAMI (AP) Michael
Beasley looked over the
defense, saw Dwyane Wade was
open and set the 2006 NBA
finals MVP up perfectly for an
easy score.
It was only a preseason game,
but the moment may have been
a harbinger of what awaits the
Miami Heat.
A year ago, as they stumbled
to the NBA's worst record,
Wade and the Heat desperately
needed an assist. They hope it's
arrived in someone who has
gotten more tattoos than birth-
day cakes, an overgrown
teenager who still claims to
watch Sponge Bob Square
Pants and whose store of choice
ik Target because he can buy
\ ideb games, Hot Pockets and a
Hlat-screen TV at the same time.
"How can you beat that? You
cannot beat that," he marvels.
Beasley is a quirky 19-year-
old, for sure.
But he can play and Wade
is thrilled to have him.
"Michael can flat-out do it
all." Wade said. "He's one of
those players who does things in
practice you've never seen. His
athleticism, his skill level, it's
just there. He'll be able to come
in and play right away."
That's exactly what the Heat
thought when they spent the
No. 2 pick in this year's draft
on Beasley, whose numbers
from his lone season at Kansas
State were scintillating: 26.2
points, 12.4 rebounds, 54 per-
cent shooting. He scores with
either hand, from inside or out,
with that uncanny ability to beat
defenders in just about every
situation.
He is certainly a huge piece of
the rebuilding puzzle for Miami,
which underwent an offseason
dominated by change.'
Since last year's 15-67 deba-
cle, Pat Riley took his place in
the Hall of Fame, Erik. Sppel-

injuries, s~&the center position
remains very suspect. w F
' But where there's Wade,
there's hope.
He recovered from a two-
year battle with, knee pain and
was the leading scorer on the
U.S. Olympic team that won
gold in Beijing this summer. If
healthy, he'll put up MVP-cal-
iber numbers. And with Shawn
Marion and Udonis Haslem in
tow, the Heat have pieces to


compete. :
"Of course on paper. there is
a lot of teams more stacked
than us, better than us on
paper," Wade said. "But we
have got to use what we have to
get over the hump, come out
early on and find a way to stay
above water."
" Beasley could make the dif-
ference in that quest.
"I will not care what my num-
bers are," Beasley said. "As


long as we're winning, I will be
fine. If we're not, I won't be."
He wouldn't have been fine
last-year. In high school and col-
lege- combined Beasley's
teams lost a total of 17 games.
At one point last season, the
Heat lost 15 in a row. It's hard
to envision a team with Wade,
Beasley and Marion enduring
a slump like that. "I'm not going
to be the go-to guy," Beasley
said, "I'm still trying to find my


place. But I can score."
That's not the only thing he's
known for, though.
Beasley knows he has some
maturing to do, but doesn't hide
his frustration that his prankster
ways in high school still lend
themselves to questions about
his .character today. He has a
reputation of being aloof, a bad
teammate, an egotistical play-
er who only cares about stats.
All not true, he insists.
"I'm a really nice guy," he
said. "I don't know why every-
body thinks that I'm a jerk, that
I have character issues, that I
don't care about the team, that
I don't work hard. Honestly, I
don't know where people get
that from. I love kids. I love see-
ing little kids smile. That makes
me smile. The worst thing I did
was coming up through high
school I wrote on a black car
with a black marker."
Now, he can doodle on any of
nine cars. That's how many he
owns. Five years ago, his mom
was'driving him around in a
1989 Nissan Pathfinder. He's
found a different path since:
There's a Mercedes, a Phantom,
a Range Rover and a Bentley in
the driveway of his new home.
Good thing his contract is
worth $20 million over the next
four years, because he's already
acquired all those cars, along
with seven televisions (for a six-
room house), pushed his per-
sonal tattoo collection to 25 (a
collage that includes dollar signs.
on the inside of his right fore-
arm and 'Married to the Game'
on his left shoulder), along with
a wardrobe filled with clothes
that were not purchased at Tar-
get.
He's never been rich like this
before, of course. And at times,
it's tough to handle, so he asks
for help.
"When you've got a good
supporting cast, a good group.
of people around you, it's not
that hard," Beasley said. "I've
got veterans on the team, I've
gotPat .Riley, I've got people
in my own circle that I can go to
give me'wisdom. So when
you've got that, it's not that
hard."
There's a perception that the
lure of South Beach is too tough
for young athletes in Miami -to
ignore. Beasley busts that myth.
He can rarely be found near
the beach, and has his own
unique reason why.
"There's no McDonald's over..
there," he said.


It's the comments like those
that remind those around
Beasley that he's just a kid.
But his play makes it hard to
remember that his rookie sea-
son hasn't even started yet.
"He's going to be a great
player," Wade said. "He
already is. And we're going to
be a lot better."

swelling in



the knee


ANAHEIM, California (AP)
- Kobe Bryant was held out
of the Lakers' preseason game
Thursday night because of
residual swelling in his right
knee following a collision with
teammate Josh Powell on Tues-
day night against Charlotte.
"I've got a little bit of puffi-
ness in the back of the knee.
It's just from the trauma of
landing the way I landed,"
Bryant said about an hour
before his teammates faced
Charlotte again. "So we'll just
knock that out and make sure
the swelling's out of there,
h ich should be.soon. Then I'm
OK. After seeing the injury on
TV, I'm surprised it's not worse,
to be honest."
Bryant, the NBA's reigning
MVP, was injured under the
Lakers' basket in the second
quarter when he went for a
rebound and banged knees with
Powell.
"I feel fine," Bryant said. "I
lifted weights this morning for
my, legs, did lunges, jumps and
all that kind of stuff, and I felt
fine. I felt strong. So I'm all
'ie ht. I just want to get the
,v, calling out. Instead of playing
on it tonight, and having the
swelling still be there and hav-
ing to manage it. I mean, that's
stuff you do during the regular
season not in preseason."
Biyant hopes to play Friday
night in the preseason finale
ag ainst Oklahoma City at
Ontario, California, and coach


Phil Jackson hasn't ruled out
that possibility. But Jackson
said if Bryant can't go, the club
may talk with Bryant about hav-
ing some diagnostic tests done
on the knee. The 10-time All-
Star chose not to undergo an
MRI exam.
"If I can run, if I can jump, if
I can do lunges, leg curls and
leg extensions, chances are
there's no structural damage,"
Bryant said, grinning. "You
know what I'm saying? If I
don't have to walk with more
of a bop that I normally walk
with, it's fine. So I'm good.
There's no need to waste their
money."
Lakers guard Sasha Vujacic,
who has yet to play in the pre-
season because of an avulsion
fracture in his left ankle, wants
to get some minutes in the pre-
season finale. He was examined
by a foot specialist Thursday.
"It feels better," said Vujacic,
who signed a three-year, $15
million contract on July 28.
"There's no sharp pain, but it's
still a little bit irritated. I just
have to face it and play with it.
Tomorrow I'm going to do the
full practice and then we go
from there. I'm going to be
there and I'm going to be in uni-
form, which I'm excited about.
But if the coach doesn't play
me, that's not my decision.
We'll see."
Powell missed the game
Thursday because of a strained
left hamstring.


IOC: No


irregular


betting at


Beijing


Olympic


Games

LAUSANNE, Switzer-
land (AP) No suspicious
betting patterns were
detected during the Beijing
Olympics, the. IOC said Fri-
day.
The International
Olympic Committee had,
for the first time, estab-
lished a special unit to look
for irregular betting activi-
ties at the games.
The IOC worked with a
group called Early Warn-
ing System to monitor pat-
terns and information from
450 bookmakers and online
gambling sites across the
world.
"The conclusions show
that no irregular betting on
Olympic competitions were
registered during the
games," IOC spokeswoman
Emmanuelle Moreau said.
The initiative followed a
series of betting and match-
fixing scandals and investi-
gations in various profes-
sional sports, including soc-
cer, cricket and tennis.
The IOC had been
briefed by former London
police chief Paul Condon,
who has conducted investi-
gations into gambling and
corruption in cricket. don-
don said he did not believe
the Olympics were particu-
larly at risk, but that vigi-
lance was required.
The IOC will'meet with
EWS and betting compa-
nies to decide on the pro-
cedures for future
Olympics. An analysis of
betting trends and activities
in winter sports will.be car-
ried out in advance of the
2010 Winter Games in Van-
fe.

stick together, to develop our core business, especial-
ly in your splendid country," Mr Gancel said.
