Wilchcombe hits out at Bethel


for allegedly 'insulting, teachers


MINISTER of Education,
Carl Bethel came under fire
yesterday for allegedly
"insulting" teachers in Grand
Bahama by walking out on
them during a scheduled
meeting in Eight Mile Rock.
As teachers in Grand
Bahama had many issues to
speak to the minister about,
including the state of their
school in Eight Mile Rock,
the MP for West End and
Bimini Obie Wilchcombe said
that Mr Bethel's conduct
towards these academic pro-
fessionals was "downright
rude".
"The Minister of Education
insulted the very root of acad-


emia when he turned his back
and walked out on the teach-
ers of Grand Bahama.
"The minister's behaviour
was downright rude!
"The teachers had assem-
bled in the gymnasium in a
peaceful and orderly manner.
"They had come to listen
to, and speak with, the minis-
ter.
"Teachers had hopes of
embracing the opportunity to
voice their many concerns
that have had and could have
further and dire consequences
in the education of the chil-
dren of Grand Bahama," he
said.
Mr Wilchcombe said that


Mr Bethel's actions had con-
tradicted the lessons, of
."respect" that both parents
and teachers seek to instil in
the youth of the nation.
"The minister denied the
professionals.
"The minister must now be
aware that the educators who
are asked to administer their
profession sometimes in
extreme situations and cir-
cumstances will no longer
repose confidence in his abil-
ity to guide them through
life's threatening situations,"
Mr Wilchcombe said.

ident of the Bahamas Union

Racing yacht which disappeared two


years ago resurfaces on Bahamas beach


* By ALISON LOWE
Tribune Staff Reporter
alowe@tribunemedia.net
A RECORD-BREAKING racing
yacht which disappeared after capsiz-
ing in bad weather two years ago, has
shocked its captain by re-surfacing
2,000 miles from where it sank on a
beach in the Bahamas.


In 2006, British yachtsman Ross
Hobson was rescued from his boat
after clinging to the bottom of the
upturned vessel for eight hours in
strong winds and high waves after it
capsized during the Route Du Rhum
yacht race.
The race set off from France and
was to finish in the Caribbean, but the
Mollymawk yacht and Mr Hobson


were 1,760 miles from their destina-
tion when things took a disastrous turn.
Mr Hobson was picked up by a
freighter, but the trimaran yacht was
left to the ocean, only to be discov-
ered this week by a woman living-in-
Eleuthera.
"The hull, although superficially in
good condition, is unfortunately
irreparable", Mr Hobson told


the BBC.
"I have asked for a few things to be
removed from her before she is broken
up and buried, and the shifting sands of
the Bahamas are likely to claim her
very soon," he said.
The boat previously claimed the
trans-Atlantic World Record crossing
from Bermuda to Plymouth in Sep-
tember 2005.


EMPLOYEES from the downtown Greek eatery Athena's
Cafe were all smiles and in full costume yesterdayy for their
fifth annual Halloween event.
, Ana Maria Diamatis, a co-owner of the family restaurant, said
the effort made by employees to dress up in various costumes,
has over the years become a growing attraction for both locals
and visitors.
* She said: "This helps to put a little more character on Bay
Street, and of course the tourist like to take pictures and ask a
million questions."
She also said that although the past few months have been
challenging for many of the businesses along the strip. "we still

Downtown

parking

solution "is

on the way'
* By LLOYD ALLEN
Tribune Staff Reporter
FOLLOWING numerous
complaints about downtown
parking regulations, The Tri-
bune has been told that a solu-
tion is on the way.
According to Sidney Cleare,
senior superintendent of the
Roads and Signs Department.
of the Ministry of Works, dis-
cussions have already begun to
bring together Ministry of
Works and the Road Traffic
Department officials for talks
on improvements in the func-
tion of zoning regulations on
Bay Street.
For many persons, a trip to
downtown usually involves
numerous failed attempts to
find parking. Some have faced
the added frustration of mis-
takenly parking in an unmarked
"taxi zone", and have returned
to find their car towed away.
Mr Cleare said that although
many of the loading and park-
ing zones may have been
marked by painted lines initial-
ly, over time these indicators
may have become less visible
due to the lack of maintenance
or repaving exercises.
In addition to this, he pointed
out, there have been new estab-
lishments opening all along
Bay Street, which may at some
point or another require a
loading zone or additional park-
ing.
Mr Cleare said members of
the Transportation, Planning,
and Policy Unit (TPPU) have
already met to identify which
zones have been legislated, and
are,'attempting to establish new
zones.
In an interview conducted by
The Tribune, a TPPU official
indicated that in light of numer-
ous requests and comments
made by motorists and business
owners about parking in the
downtown area, they intend to
make a detailed request to the
controller of road traffic, who
will ultimately determine the
feasibility of new zoning initia-
tives.
He said the unit will also
attempt to: encourage the. uni-
ficfaion of the pubhq.busing ;Ns--.
tem, install street signs in the
area for bus stops and parking
and work continually with the/l
Downtown Redevelopment
Association.
Though a definitive date was
not specified for this new ini-
tiative, officials say it will great-
ly improve traffic flow and
parking conditions in the area.


GB hotel workers entitled,




to support from $6m fund


* By MEGAN REYNOLDS
Tribune Staff Reporter
GRAND Bahama hotel workers are
entitled to financial support from the $6
million relief fund for employees whose
shifts and paychecks have been cut, it was
announced yesterday.
.The Bahamas Hotel and Allied Indus-
tries Health and Welfare Benefits Fund,
the largest privately funded relief pro-
gramme in the country, was launched on
Monday in response to the recent decline
in tourism. which has left thousands of
workers with fewer hours and shrinking


pay checks.
Up to 6,000 hotel line staff working an
average of three days a week or less, can
apply for $1,000 to cover their bills.
This number now includes those
employed at Our Lucaya in Grand
Bahama.
All payments will go directly to creditors,
including banks or other lending institu-
tions, schools, utilities, or landlords.
It was confirmed yesterday that appli-
cations from hotel workers in Grand
Bahama will be accepted from Tuesday,
following the launch in New Providence
on Monday..


Fund trustee Michael Reckley said: "We
expected hundreds to show up at Workers
House in Nassau on Thursday, the first
day, so we were not surprised at the crowd.
"We are very pleased to report things
are running quite smoothly." ,
To apply for funding, hotel workers must
attend Worker's House to file their appli-
cation on the day of the week correspond-
ing with the first letter of their last name.
Surnames beginning with letters A-D
will be seen on Thursdays, E-I on Fridays,
J-M on Mondays, N-R on Tuesdays and
S-Z on Wednesdays, from now until
December 31.


Authentic arts, crafts, food items

'can be viable source of income'


* By ALISON LOWE
Tribune Staff Reporter
alowe@tribunemedia.net
AUTHENIC Bahamian arts,
crafts and food items were held up
yesterday as examples of how
Bahamians can create a viable
source of income using their own
hands, creativity and the resources
found naturally in the country.
Opening the 11th Annual
BahamArts Festival 2008, govern-
ment officials said this year's theme
- "Our Own Hands" is "fitting
and timely" given the current eco-
nomic pressures playing out in the
lives of Bahamians today.
"Let us stop depending on others
to. provide jobs for us," said Mifiister
of Agriculture and Marine
Resources Larry Cartwright, who
suggested that Bahamians should
"sharpen our skills, combine our
resources and unleash our untapped
energies" to "transform the Bahami-
an economy" through arts and crafts.
"If we get four to five million vis-
itors annually, if 25 per cent of that
number bought one piece of some-
thing totally Bahamian made, just
think what a great and positive
impact that will be," said Mr
Cartwright.
The BahamArts Festival, pro-
moting Bahamian-made arts and
crafts, is open to the public and will
be taking place today and tomorrow
at Arawak Cay.
On'dtsplay are a plethora of
-attractive and 'uique'priducts, rang-,
ing from straw bags, to jewellery,
clothes, carvings and food, repre-
senting the creative efforts of skilled
local crafts people from across the
Bahamian archipelago.
Opening the event yesterday
morning, Prime-Minister Hubert
Ingraham "strongly encouraged" the
public to visit the festival this week-
end and "show support for hard-

working Bahamian artisans and
entrepreneurs."
He expressed his support for the
revitalisation of the indigenous crafts
industry, which, in its heyday, formed
a major pillar of many islands'
economies and exposed visitors to
distinctly Bahamian creations.
"The development of increased
quantities and improved qualities of
Bahamian products can only benefit
our country, especially at this time of
increased global financial uncer-
tainty.
S',n increase in the production of
arts, crafts, clothing and jewellery
and packaged and processed food
will not only increase local value
added-to our tourism produet,-but it
will significantly improve ourtourism
product itself," Mr Ingraham said.
Edison Key, chairman of the
Bahamas Agricultural and Industri-
al Corporation (BAIC), said he has
seen a "rebirth of the craft and sou-
venir industry", thanks in part to
BAIC's training programmes and
workshops which have been offered
in New Providence and across the


Family Islands.
Hundreds of people have gradu-
ated from the shell, coconut and
straw craft classes since 2006, and in
the future BAIC hopes to offer
lessons in the art of red bays weav-
ing, sisal weaving, wood turning and
batik and tie-dying.
Mr Key said such productive
activities can "go a long way in eas-
ing unemployment", pointing out
that they do not require a "huge
(capital) outlay" and can be operat-
ed from home.
"With quality as our watch word
we hope to help people take advan-
tage of the opportunities it offers to
earn a com(ortdble living,"'he said,-
- - :'- . -.: -


He said: "We are doing everything we
can to make sure things are organised and
efficient, so we also want to remind people
to bring the rent, mortgage, utility, tuition
or other bills they want paid by the fund.
They do not need to bring a pay slip, just
IDs and copies of their bills."
The fund is made up. of contributions
from hotels and related industries' employ
ers. Only those working with contribution
employers are eligible to pay.
Workers applying in New Providenc4
may do so between 9am and 4pm, and i
Grand Bahama the Workers House wi
be open from 10am to 4pm.

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) Edie Fal-
co is fidgeting and looks nervous. The
star of "The Sopranos" admits to her
North Carolina audience that she's a
product of lower Manhattan who bare-
ly understands voters above 14th
Street.
She talks for just five minutes and
never mentions John McCain or
George Bush.
"I've never had any intentions of try-
ing to change anybody's mind," says
Falco, a Barack Obama supporter.
"I've heard a lot of celebrities talk-
ing about politics who, in my estima-
tion, are not qualified to do so."
She adds, "Frankly, I'm embarrassed
sometimes that they are representing
my ilk, if you will."
For the seemingly endless number
of celebrities who back Obama, trying
to persuade people who already sup-
port the Illinois senator to volunteer
for his campaign is as important as
swaying undecided voters.
Four years ago, rocker Bruce Spring-
steen was the'face of celebrity poli-
tics, making his first public endorse-
ment of a candidate with a column' in
The New York Times before leading a
series of swing-state concerts to urge a
vote for Democratic nominee John
Kerry.
While Obama has his share of
celebrity conceits and endorsements
- singer Dave Matthews playing a
show in his home state of Virginia, leg-
endary driver and team owner Junior
Johnson sending an e-mail, to
NASCAR fans he is using his sup-
port among famous faces differently.
"They're less focused on being mes-
sengers for the campaign and are more
plugged in to helping the organization
be more effective," said Bill Carrick, a
California Democratic consultant add
veteran of past presidential campaigns.
"You've got people in the campaign
working very, very hard and surviving
on buckets of fried chicken, pizzas and

caffeine," Carrick said.
"It's nice to have somebody come in
and appreciate them."
For Falco's stops in North Carolina,
the campaign placed her in front of a
few dozen dedicated Obama support-
ers.
"If you have any extra time to vol-
unteer, between now and then, or on
Election Day at'the polls, you can help
the workers or bring food to people
who are exhausted," she told them.
The GOP has tried to bring celebri-
ties into its fold,.but the party knows
that's not its base.
"We were making a list of who are
some celebrity singers who could come
.out and help us and, gosh, for the life
of us, the pickings were slim there,"
Republican vice presidential candidate
Sarah Palin said at a fundraiser in
Greensboro last month. "Who's quasi-
conservative out there in the celebrity
land?"
Between production work for his
FOX series "House," actor Kal Penn is
working phone banks for Obama and
helping out in other ways.
While he mentions why he decided
to campaign for Obama in the Iowa
caucuses, he does little to lay out Oba-
ma's policies.
Instead, Penn urged about 100 col-
lege students at the University of
North Carolina at Asheville, some
wearing pajama pants and munching
on breakfast. at a midday event last
Sunday, to get involved in any way
possible.
"It requires a little bit of sacrifice
- and we're hoping that you do that
because the stakes are just way too
high," Penn said.
"The simple acts of what you guys
are doing volunteering and signing
up is going to make the difference."

Obama campaign uses star power


EDITOR, The Tribune.
ONE need not be a clairvoy-
ant to be able to see that, at
least >for the next' three years,
we will very likely face some
tough economic times in the
Bahamas, and before things get
any better, I predict, they will
more than likely worsen.
The IMF has just predicted a
one percent growth rate for
2008 and a similar growth rate
for 2009, but my view is that
they are probably wrong on
both predictions. I believe that
the growth rate for the next
three years, in the Bahamas,
will be "Zero." There is nothing
in the works or on the drawing
board, that I know of, which
could, produce the kind of activ-
ity needed to halt this econom-
ic deterioration and spark posi-
tive growth. If we are able to
maintain the status quo, we
would have much, for which to
give God thanks. The govern-
ment seems clueless, as to what
measures they should employ
in an effort to jump-start and
sustain some kind of relief for
our people. This knee-jerk
approach the FNM proposes to
pursue, in terms of relief, is
reckless, useless, irresponsible
and quite frankly, a very.dan-
gerous-setting precedent.
I concur fully, with the views
expressed by Mr Rick Lowe, in
his letter published in The Nas-
sau Guardian on Thursday,
October 16th where he said:
"It's too bad, but this present
crop of so-called leaders might
not be here to witness the
destruction of the socialist poli-
cies they are implementing; nor
will they see or feel the long
road to recovery when the
country is finally downgraded
to a basket case."
I may not be onboard, fully,
with Mr Lowe's view of strict
adherence to the undiluted
implementation of the core
principles of "market forces",
but I certainly agree with him,
that our political leaders are
being reckless, to say the least,
in proposing to use taxpayers
money, willy-nilly, to get some
of us out of the financial crunch
we find ourselves in at the
moment. These latest moves by
the FNM are for one purpose
only, I submit, and that is to try
and shore up and maintain what
they feel is their voting majori-
ty.

GOVERNMENT TREASURY BILLS

Sealed tenders for B$47369,000.00 of 91-Day Treasury

Tenders are to be on special forms obtainable from the Central

his plan, he'll let me know what
those plans are, because we
have to do it. And even though
he mentioned it, I think he's
trying to work out all the bugs
in his mind before he moves
forward---the cabinet has yet to
evaluate the plan." What does
all this garbage mean, Russell?
Do you have a plan or don't
you?
Rick Lowe should agree with
me that it was this government,
with its recklessness, which got
us on this path of economic'
decline. It was them, he should
agree, who stopped $100 mil-
lion worth of.development pro-
jects left in progress, on the
ground for them, by the PLP
government. We shouldn't let
Ingraham forget that it was he,
his, bad policies and his insulting
remarks, which have gotten us
into this mess. Ingraham came
to office with a chip on his
shoulder, declaring that he
intended to stop all the PLP's
projects; review them; amend
some and cancel some as he
wished. This, I submit, sent the
wrong message to Investors and
potential investors alike, result-
ing in the decline of economic
activity in the country and
placed us in the precarious,
volatile economic situation in
which we find ourselves.
To add insult to injury, Ingra-
ham and Laing decided that, to
compensate for the fall off in
government revenue resulting
from the fall off in business
activity, they would restructure
the tariff act to provide for a
drastic increase in: customs
import duties across the board.
That decision, of course, was a
recipe for further disaster and
the rest is history. Had the
development projects been
allowed to continue and
progress, unimpeded, the activ-
ity from them would have been
able to insulate us, for the most
part, against this US and world
crisis.
The government is, now, in a
panic mode and this is why we


are seeing all these, knee-jerk,
after the fact, decisions being
made to throw good taxpayers
money after bad. It makes no
sense to take government rev-
enue and pay a mortgage com-
pany two months of a person's
mortgage, only to see it fall
behind three months later and
be repossessed. What does
make sense, since they have
decided to go down this road
(which I disagree with), is for
the government to do what has
been done in the United States,
and that is to buy up all the
mortgages and let the people
pay the government back
instead. This will ensure mini-
mum loses and hopefully bring'
some stability to the housing
sector.
Is there anyone who is capa-
ble of thinking, in this FNM
government?
FORRESTER

Freeport,
Grand Bahama
October 20, 2008.
(If former prime minister
Perry Christie had been capable
of making decisions in a rea-
sonable time frame, there would
have been no projects for the
Ingraham government to hold
up for investigation after coming
to power in 2007. These projects
- BahaMa included would
have been well on their way to
completion.
(Mr Christie was eloquent in
talking about the billions of
investments that his government
had enticed to the Bahamas.
This boasting baffled Bahami-
ans who could see no evidence
of any substantial projects being
started.
(We soon got answers after
the 2007 election. After five
years ofthe Christie administra-
tion, many of these projects had
only reached the "agreement in
principle" stage. They still await-
ed a final decision to start con-
struction. Other projects were
still languishing on the drawing
board. If Mr Christie had been a
more decisive leader we would
now be benefitting from these
completed or near completed
projects. Ed).


Did you hear the one about the

two American businessmen?

EDITOR, The Tribune.
DID you hear the one about the two American businessmen who
went into the Florida bank wanting a loan for a new venture? The
first guy says he has this great idea for a product to sell, he needed
some cash to open a store in the mall, pay his workers and buy some
stock. The second guy says he wants to sell the same product in the
same mall. The banker says that it was a great product to sell in a
great location, one of them will really do well. Then the first guy
says but I also need cash so I can drive to work in a Porshe, and I'll
need more to buy my business partner an SUV so he can get to
work, Oh and by the way, I need more cash to buy my partner some
new tyres for his old car. And the banker laughs at him.
Well I didn't say it was a funny story, it is actually sad. Now that
AES's LNG project has competition with direct imports to the
US from Floridian Gas, the first guy has a problem. AES must build
a pipeline (read Porshe) and yet another to New Providence (read
SUV) and give BEC some new tyres for its turbines. The second
guy doesn't need that stuff. Have you read anything lately about
how much bankers really want to fund things that are useless? I
hope BEC doesn't expect new tyres real soon. All those things we
would really like to have are being laughed at by the bankers.

ALMOST 50 per cent of stu-
dents enrolled at the Bahamas
Technical and Vocational Insti-
tution (BTVI) are unemployed
persons who are attempting to
learn a trade which will help
them survive in today's tumul-
tuous job market, a new survey
has revealed.
As unemployment numbers
continue to rise throughout the
country, Minister for Labour
Dion Foulkes is urging Bahami-
ans to expand their training to
become multi-skilled workers.
Speaking with The Tribune
yesterday, Mr Foulkes said that
persons who are trained for
more than one type of job are


much more likely to remain
employed in the current job mar-
ket.
BTVI public relations officer
Shaun Adderley said that there
is a growing trend of unem-
ployed persons learning an addi-
tional skill or trade.
Based on a recent survey con-
ducted by BTVI which analysed
student enrollment and general
employment demand, it was
shown that unemployed student
enrollment represented 47 -per
cent of overall enrollment, he
said.
Additionally, it.was deter-
mined that contrary to previous
studies, which showed that car-
pentry and masonry were the
job types most in demand, office
administration, construction, and


cosmetology are among this
year's high-demand fields.
"I would suggest that persons
try to upgrade themselves in any
type of trade, because at the end
of the day a trade goes with you
anywhere you go," he said.
A major difficulty for many
potential employers, Minister
Foulkes said, is the lack of ade-
quately skilled and certified
workers.
"Both employed and unem-
ployed persons should put them-
selves in a position where they
can expand their options for
employment," he said.
The minister said that with the
many certification programmes
offered by institutions like the
BTVI and the College of the
Bahamas, there are numerous


opportunities for persons to fur-
ther expand their employment
options.
"If you have a construction
worker who is a helper, it is
advantageous for him while he is
doing that job, to obtain addi-
tional training as a mason, car-
penter, or electrician, so that if a
better job opportunity presents
itself, he would be prepared,"
he said.
Mr Foulkes said that many
companies have already adopted
the practice-of providing multi-
skilled and advanced training
courses to their employees,
These companies include the
Albany Development Compa-
ny; Atlantis; Baha Mar, Super-
club Breezes, and the Container
Port in Freeport, he said.

THE Miss Bahamas Organi-
sation is partnering with the
Bahamas Ministry of Tourism
to stage a Miss Bahamas World
people-to-people tea party and
fashion show in aid of a new
scholarship fund.
Miss Bahamas World 2008
Tinnyse Johnson said this ini-
tiative is a part-of her "Beauty
with a Purpose" project to assist
underprivileged young women
to attend the College of the
Bahamas to further their edu-
cation.
"This is my passion, reaching
out to hurting young women
and hopefully if this project is a
success, we will be able to
accomplish this on a large
scale," Ms Johnson said.
In addition to raising funds
for education, Miss Bahamas
World is also using the project
as a means to. encourage the
mentorship of at-risk young

pr fesspal-wonien are expect-
ed to attend the fundraising
event on Sunday, November 2,
at the Sheraton Cable Beach
Resort.
Attendees will be asked to
mentor a group of students,
who have been hand-selected
by their school's guidance coun-
selors to participate in the pro-
gramme.


"Our goal is to encourage
these women to take a young
lady under their wing and help
them to realise the potential
they have within. Even if only
one life is changed for the bet-
ter, it will be worth it," Ms
Johnson said.
Each year, the Miss Bahamas
World Organisation requires
the winners of the pageant to
come up with ideas for their
"Beauty with a Purpose" pro-
ject.
Michelle Malcolm, president
of the Miss Bahamas World
Organisation, said that "beauty
with a purpose" is more than
just a slogan for the pageant.
"Winners are expected to be
purpose-driven women who
give back to the community and
their society, so each year we
require our queens to come up
with an idea for the project and
'this scholarship fund just hap-
pens to be Tinnyse's idea," Ms
Malcolm said.

is scheduled to speak on the
topic. "Foreign Policy Matters
in a Time of Crisis" at the Col-
lege of the Bahamas on Sun-
day, November 2.
Students of the Government
and Politics in the Bahamas
class at the college, led by Felix
Bethel, are inviting all interest-
ed members to attend and par-
ticipate in the forum.
"We've been talking a lot
about how the Bahamas can
cope with the global situation
right now," said student Reva
Sharma of her 25-strong poli-
tics class.


She said the students hope
that the public talks, at which
Ministers of National Security,
Tourism and Education have
also been asked to speak at a
later date, will "open up the dia-
logue nationally" on this issue.
The free event will take place
at the Michael H Eldon com-
plex at 3pm.

Wary of voter

overconfldence,

Maia not letting up
* DES MOINES, Iowa
Associated Press
"HERE I am, signed,
sealed, delivered."
That's what the giddy
crowds at Barack Obama's
campaign rallies hear when he
walks off the stage, the boom-
ing sound of Stevie Wonder
singing about the promise of a
sure thing.
The curious part is that
Obama keeps saying just the
opposite: Not one thing is
sealed.
"We can't afford to slow
down, or sit back, or let up,
for one day, for one minute,
for one second in this last
week," the Democratic presi-
dential nominee told support-
ers Thursday.
"Not now. Not now," he
said in the Florida sunshine
that day. "We've got to work
hard."
For a range of reasons -
the slippery nature of polls,
the.Democrats' history of
heartbreak, the still-to-be-
determined effect of race, the
desire not to jinx himself -
Obama is, in fact, working the
vote hard.
In his contest against
Republican John McCain,
Obama has gone big, drawing
hundreds of thousands of peo-
ple to rallies in the last few
days alone.
He used his fundraising
muscle to buy a prime-time
TV slot for his infomercial,
viewed by 33.6 million, and
touted his new unity with for-
mer President Clinton.
But Obama also is careful
to look engaged individually,
too. Twice this week, in cam-
paign offices outside Denver
and in Pittsburgh, be got on
the phone directly with
voters.
One woman grilled him'at
length about his environmen-
tal record. One said she want-
ed tickets to his inauguration.
One made him smile by saying 1
she was 100 percent Obama.
"I won't let you down," he
told her.
It is standard election poli-
tics not to look cocky. Voters
hate being taken for granted.
Yet the tone of Obama's argu-
ment suggests he is going
beyond playing it safe.


The Bahamas National Trust attends



conservation conference in Soain


THE World Conservation Congress
concluded its work in Barcelona,
Spain, on October 16 after two weeks
that brought together over 8,000 gov-
ernment officials, environmentalists,
scientists, business people, non-gov-
ernment leaders and other delegates
concerned with the fate of the planet
and the threats to the survival of
species and ecosystems.
The Bahamas was well-represented
at the Congress with Senator Lynn
Holowesko, Bahamas National Trust
executive director Eric Carey and
director of parks and science
Tamica Rahming participating in the
meeting.
This Congress marked an important
landmark for the Caribbean, with the
launch by the International Union for
Conservation of Nature (IUCN) of a
new initiative for the region.
The new Caribbean initiative comes
Sin response to a resolution passed at
the 2004 World Conservation Con-
gress, and will include a range of inter-
ventions aimed at improving the man-
agement of the region's major ecosys-
tems by increasing knowledge, improv-
ing governance and empowering stake-

members are
pleased that their
call for greater

in the region has
been answered in
this manner."

Senator Lynn Holowesko

tive in their natural resource manage-
ment roles and responsibilities.
This new initiative will be imple-
mented in close collaboration with
IUCN members and partners in the
Caribbean region and will include
work in a numberof areas, such as the
preparation for a Caribbean Red List
of Threatened Species, a programme
on renewable energy, and work in inte-
grated planning, ecosystem manage-
ment and sustainable livelihoods, and
climate change adaptation.


This initiative is the latest addition to
IUCN's portfolio of work in island
regions.
Senate president Lynn Holowesko,
who served on the IUCN Council for
the past eight years, said she found it
particularly gratifying that the only
new regional programme that was
launched at the Barcelona Congress
was this initiative on the Caribbean.
"The Caribbean members are
pleased that their call for greater
IUCN involvement in the region has
been answered in this manner.
"I am looking forward to this being
a truly regional programme that inte-
grates all the countries of the region in
all their diversity," Mrs Holowesko
said.
Advisor on International Coopera-
tion in the Ministry of the Environ-
ment in Haiti, Joseph Ronald Tous-
saint said, "The IUCN Initiative for
the Caribbean is an important contri-
bution towards improving the well-
being of people in the region and it
comes at a time when the Caribbean is
grappling with complex problems
linked to climate change and atten-
dant issues of natural disasters, the
exacerbation of poverty and the accel-


erated loss of biodiversity."
Commenting on what it offers Haiti,
he said, "The initiative gives Haiti an
opportunity to elevate the question of
energy and ecosystem services on its
development agenda."
The Congress also gave members
the opportunity to elect a new council
for the next four years.
The Caribbean representative on
that body will be Dr Spencer Thomas
from Grenada.
The new IUCN president is
renowned environmentalist and devel-
opment activist Ashok Khosla from
India.
The IUCN is the world's oldest and
largest global environmental network
- a democratic membership union with
more than 1,000 government and non-
governmental member organizations,
and almost 11,000 volunteer scientists
in more than 160 countries.
IUCN's work is supported.by more
than 1,000 professional staff in 60
offices and hundreds of partners in
public, non-governmental and private
sectors around the world.
The Union's headquarters are locat-
ed in Gland, near Geneva, in Switzer-
land.

Morethan 40 .


teachers in the





NAGB workshop


* By NICOLE FAIR BHATTI

THE National Arts Gallery
of the Bahamas teacher work-
shops are fast becoming a pop-
ular tradition amongst educa-
tors, with a database of more
than 40 teachers.
Erica James feels that they
are successfully communicating
their message of career mind-
edness in the arts as well as
more complete integration of
the arts in the national curricu-
lum.
She stated that key persons
involved in revising the arts cur-
riculum in the Bahamas had
attended last year's all day
workshop which included an
introduction to the Bahamian
art story text authored by Ms
James, with assistance with les-
son plans provided by Holly
Parotti and James Rolle.
Though this text has not been
technically entered in to the
Bahamas' national curriculum,
many teachers who participated
in the workshop earlier this year
are already are using it.
Ms James said: "We held a


lunchtime think tank at last
year's workshop and gave them
the lesson plans on several
artists in the national collection
and asked for feedback for
example how age appropriate
they were." "

Empowered

"Having been empowered in
this way, many of the teachers
have gone on to integrate the
text and lesson plans in their
classes over the past year
despite the fact that the book
has yet to be published. It
seems that many teachers are
utilising the NAGB more and
more."
C W Saunders art teacher
Kevin Rolle, who recently vis-
ited the gallery with his grade
seven class, is a regular visitor
bringing all of his students at
least once each school year.
During last year's workshop,
the gallery presented the teach-
ers with a diversity of tech-
niques and skills which they
could incorporate into their own


classes.
"We were lucky to have Dave
Smith here at that time and he
spoke to the teachers about the
use of cultural icons in his
work," said Ms James.
Both an artist by profession
and a teacher, Dave Smith, in
his exhibition Twist of Fate
(1975 1989) utilised cultural
icons of the 1970s and 80s to
produce paintings easily classi-
fied as Bahamian Pop Art.
During the tour, the teachers
were given a talk on curation
and taken behind the scenes to
learn how a photography exhi-
bition entitled Developing
Blackness was put together.
After the lunchtime think
tank, they were taken on a bus
tour of Transforming Spaces, a
visit to several galleries island-
wide.
"Many were not even aware
of the existence of these places,"
said Ms James, who is eager to
elevate both the level and diver-
sity of artistic skills the our
country.
To that end, she said, in a
workshop on Saturday, Octo-

my life," King told The Tribune following
yesterday's ruling. King said that he thanks
God that the matter is now behind him.
According to court records, the respon-
dents Cavalier Construction Ltd in.,
August,. 2004, had obtained a judgment
against King arid three others for the afore-
mentioned sum with interest.
On or about March 30, 2005, a debtor's
summons was left at the Supreme Court
Registry for sealing and signature by the
registrar.


Court records also state that a debtor's
summons was served on the appellant on
June 13, 2005, requiring the appellant to
pay the demanded sum within 21 days of
the service of the summons or apply to
have the court set aside the summons. Nei-
ther action was taken by the appellant and
-inNovember, 2005, a notice of intention to
oppose the granting of the bankruptcy
order was filed on the appellant's behalf on
the grounds that the debtor's summons
was defective as it had been served outside
the prescribed period.
Justice Lyons ruled, however, that the

son and the accused were gone.
Sergeant Saunders told the court that police later found the accused and the infant at a
residence in Rocky Pine, off McKinney Drive, where the accused was staying with her 23-
year-old boyfriend.
The prosecutor told the court that the accused, when interviewed by police, claimed she
intended to kill the child she is six months pregnant with and keep the baby she had
stolen as her own. The juvenile told the court that her boyfriend wanted a child.
The girl's mother, who was called to stand with her during the arraignment, said she was
very upset with her daughter for what she had done and thought she needed help. .
The mother said her daughter had been in and out of the Girls' Industrial School and had
even attended family counselling to help curb her behaviour.
The juvenile was remanded to the rehabilitation centre for 14 days, after which she will
return to juvenile court for sentencing. The case has been adjourned to November 12.


,--


GRADE SEVEN students from CW Saunders with art teacher Kevin Rolle and NAGB administrative
assistant Shevanne Carr leading the tour. Standing around Clive Stuart's new installation piece, a large
nest with giant eggs wrapped in various school uniform materials, the students were asked what the
piece meant to them. Student Shedland Munnings responded, "It is very thoughtful, (it means) don't let
anyone mess up your dreams."


ber 25, teachers were taken
through NE4 (National Exhibi-
tion 4) to encourage them to
bring their students at a later
date. Armed with the knowl-
edge gleaned from the work-
shop, teachers can then better
prepare their students before
field trips to the gallery.
Frank Crothers donated a
new text.on Bahamian archi-
tecture books to the teachers
participating in this month's
workshop. This text will sup-
port the second portion of the
full-day workshop which will


take the form of an architecture
tour.
The book, entitled A Living
Tradition: Architecture of the
Bahamas by Stephen A
Mouzon of the New Urban
Guild Foundation, Miami, is a
comprehensive, full colour tome
detailing all aspects of architec-
ture in the Bahamas and was.
commissioned by Orjan Lin-
droth's foundation.
For the final segment of the
teachers' workshop, the gallery
has planned to divide the teach-
ers into five groups who will
then be matched with five Nas-
spu-based artists to learn or
deepen their knowledge in var-
ious techniques such as screen
printing (at John Cox's
Popup Studios) and woodwork
(at Antonius Roberts'
studio).


Ms James said: "Getting a
sense of this hands-on work, will
. hopefully add another arrow to
the teacher's quiver, motivat-
ing them to incorporate these
techniques or invite these artists
to come to the schools and
work with the kids on special
,projects,
"They may be outside of the
current curriculum, but it would
stimulate- the interest and
expand the material knowledge
of the students and we think ,
that is a good thing."
She added: "Essentially
our goal is to infuse the art.
curriculums of all schools in
the Bahamas with ideas
and resources which will
expand both teachers' and
students' concepts of art and
how it translates in the work-
place."


appellant had been properly served. Dur-
ing the appeal hearing attorney for the
respondents Jason Maynard had also
sought to have King's appeal dismissed on
the grounds that the record bf appeal had
been filed out of time. King's attorney
Wayne Munroe had refuted this claim.
In a ruling handed down by Justice
Christopher Blackman, the court allowed
King's appeal against the bankruptcy dec-
laration, set aside the bankruptcy order
by Justice Lyons and ordered that the
respondents Cavalier Construction Com-
pany Ltd pay the appellant's costs.
"In the context of the quasi-criminal
nature of the proceedings faced by the
appellant and the standard of proof
required in criminal proceedings, we are of
the opinion that the trial judge erred in
holding that the date of the (debtor) sum-
mons was other than the 30th day of
March.
"As the summons was served on the
appellant on June 13, 2005, more than 21
days from the date of March 30, 2005, it is
clear that the service was defective," the
court's ruling stated.
Court of Appeal President Dame Joan
Sawyer maintained, in a separate ruling
yesterday that the appellate court has no
jurisdiction to entertain'the appeal
and that she therefore would have dis-
missed it.
"However, since the judgment of Jus-
tices Lorris Ganpatsingh and Christopher
Blackman was that King's appeal should
be allowed, the order of the court is that
the appeal should be allowed with costs
to the appellants to be taxed if not agreed
upon," her ruling stated.

Mr Bethel's removal.
A second motion was also
moved and passed for all teach-
ers to sit-in on Friday until the
union had heard baqk from the
minister.
Mrs Wilson said the petition
\ ill be signed by the 600 teach-,
ers in the Grand Bahama dis-
Irict and forwarded to the PM
in New Providence.
I will seek to have it sent to
the PM today," she said. "The
minister was very rude, disre-
spect ful and unprofessional, and
we really hope that the PM will
remove him forthwith.
"The minister should have put
the health and safety of teachers
and students first and foremost,
but he took a personal route this
morning."
Ms Wilson said that Eight
Mile Rock High teachers are not
prepared to go into the class-
rooms until they are assured by
the minister and his team of
health and environmental' offi-
cials as to whether, it is safe for
them to return to the 'school.
Teachers and students have
been experiencing various health


problems at the schools, such as
coughing, skin irritation, vomit-
ing and respiratory problems.
There have been serious
ongoing health issues at the
school, including mould, rat, bat,
and pigeon infestation, as well
as sewer back-ups.
Students and teachers have
been attending class on a rota-
tion basis after some classrooms
were determined to be unfit for
occupation.
PTA president Troy Garvey
said he was very disappointed
by Minister Bethel's actions on
Friday.
"What he did here today was
wrong and very disrespectful. If
he wanted to meet exclusively
with EMR teachers he would
have been here three weeks ago
when this first started, but he
waited until it escalated to this
level.
"And now he is going to ride
off...because other teachers
came here to support the school
to get it repaired and fixed. That
is a slap in the face to teachers,
and the PTA is asking the gov-
ernment, to remove him," Mr
Garvey said.
Mrs Wilson said this is not the
first time that the minister had

Mr Bethel has requested that teachers return to the school to
teach their students, who have missed about three weeks of lessons.
Meanwhile, he said arrangements will be made at alternative facil-
ities to accommodate students at St Stephen's Parish Hall and
Bethel Baptist Deliverance Church in Eight Mile Rock until a
new classroom building can be constructed.
Minister Bethel held a toyn meeting w i et4 df stud tg

In reference to health concerns of teachers and studentss; Mr
Bethel said health screenings had been conducted and are contin-
uming.
He reported that 326 of the 860 students had been screefied so far.
He also noted that of the 68 teachers at EMR, 37 had been screened
to date. Of the number screened, he said further testing and screen-
ing was required for 10 teachers.
Principal Benjamin Stubbs said Grade 8 students should report
to St Stephens, Grade 7 students to Bethel Deliverance Church, and
Grade 10 students to EMR gymnasium..
He said that Grades 9, 11, and 12 students must report to the
school for regular class.
Mr Bethel said the ministry had received quotes from four con-
tractors for a new building. He said construction should be com-
pleted in six weeks while students and teachers are on Christmas.

disrespected- teachers and the
union.
"We will be sensitising teach-
ers in New Providence and the
entire Bahamas as to what tran-
spired here with a view to asking
them to join us in asking for his
removal.
"I am not surprised by his
action. I think he is very arro-
gant and we realise that he is not
the person that is suited for the
Ministry of Education. He does
not have the tolerance person-
ality and culture for education,"
she said.
"He needs to be professional
and get rid of the overwhelming
pride he has and humble him-
self and come and speak to the
teachers of Grand Bahama dis-
trict, 'and EMR teachers in par-
ticular, and the union so we can
come up with a resolution to tlis
situation."
Mrs Wilson said the union will
also be requesting the removal
of permanent secretary Elma
Garraway and acting director
Lionel Sands.

Most players learn very early on
that, on defense, it is often correct to
hold up.an ace in a suit declarer is
trying to establish particularly at
notrump. There are exceptions to
every rule, however, and a defender
must constantly be on the lookout for
them lest he allow declarer to steal an
unmakable contract.
Take this case where South was in
three notrump and West led a spade.
Declarer won the first spade in his
hand, preserving dummy's ace as an
entry, and led the king of clubs.

- suit school, did exactly that, where-
upon South -continued with the
queen. East bad no choice but to
duck again in order to kill the rest of
dummy's clubs.
However, this was a classic case of
the successful operation in which the
patient died. After the second club
held, declarer drove out the ace of
diamonds and wound up with nine
, tricks -- two spades, two hearts, two
clubs and three diamonds.
As can be seen, if East had taken
the-. first club and returned a spade,
the contract would have failed. With
the clubs blocked and the spade ace
no longer in dummy, declare could
not have come to more than eight
tricks.
How can East know to win the
first club? By applying ordinary
common sense. East should reason
that if South has the K-Q-x of clubs,
declarer cannot be prevented from
enjoying dummy's clubs regardless
of when East takes the ace.
East must therefore, assume that
South has either the K-Q or K-x of
clubs. In either case, it is right to take
the first club and return a spade to
kill dummy's entry.
Observe that it does not help
South in the actual deal to lead the
club queen first rather than the king.
East should still win the queen with
the ace and return a spade on the
assumption that declarer has either
the K-Q or Q-x of clubs.

Hopkins pounds Pavlik


* By JOHN ELIGON
c.2008 New York
Times News Service
ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. -
Shortly after Bernard Hopkins
dominated Antonio Tarver at.
Boardwalk Hall here in June
2006, he stepped on a podium
and offered some blunt words:
"I'm done."
About a week later, the exec-
utives at HBO gave him a
retirement party at their head-
quarters in Midtown Manhat-
tan. There was cake, speeches
and singing. There was even a
framed photograph of the fight
given to Hopkins from HBO.
More than two years later,
Hopkins put on another domi-
nating performance in the same
ring, but this time he stepped
to the podium with a very dif-
ferent message: Who's next?
In a performance reminiscent
of the win over Tarver, the 43-
year-old Hopkins pounded Kel-
ly Pavlik, 17 years his junior, in
winning a unanimous decision
Saturday night.
At the postfight news con-
ference, Hopkins said he was
looking forward to facing the
winner of next month's fight
between Roy Jones Jr. and Joe
Calzaghe at Madison Square
Garden.
"I would fight Roy in a heart-
beat," Hopkins said. "I would
even go 'to England and fight
Calzaghe if he wins."
Either bout would provide
Hopkins (49-5-1) an ideal
chance at a final statement. In
May 1993, Hopkins lost to

Jones before going on to rule
the middleweight division for
nearly a decade and a half. The
politics of boxing have been a
factor in why Jones and Hop-'
kins have not met since.
In April, Hopkins lost a split
decision to Calzaghe, who is
from Wales. Hopkins said he
thought he had won the fight.
No one, it seems, will doubt
Hopkins in the coming years.
If anything, Hopkins was fueled


by those who doubted him.
After the final bell Saturday
night, Hopkins stood along the
ropes and held back tears as he
stared toward the reporters at
ringside, many of whom picked
him to lose the fight.
"They say Bernard is old,"
Hopkins said at the news con-
ference. "I am. They say
Bernard is finished. They ain't
saying that now."
Hopkins could go down as


one of the greatest boxers in
his 40s. George Foreman won a
world heavyweight title at 45.
Archie Moore was 44 when he
won a world light-heavyweight
championship.
Hopkins said his perfor-
mance Saturday night was per-
haps his best ever. And that is a
remarkable thought when con-
sidering his list of accolades,
which includes 20 consecutive
middleweight title defenses and
victories over stars like Oscar
De La Hoya and Felix
Trinidad.
What was perhaps most
impressive about Hopkins' vic-
"tory on Saturday was his con-
stant pressure on Pavlik, who
was supposed, to be the bigger
puncher and the more active
fighter. Hopkins wobbled
Pavlik (34-1) several times.
I Hopkins acknowledged that
in previous fights, he had been
playing it safe because of his
age.
"For anybody I fight next,
I'm going for the knockout,"
he said.
The defeat seemed a signifi-
cant blow to the psyche of
Pavlik, who has been on a quick
ascent since winning the mid-
dleweight world title by knock-
ing out Jermain Taylor last
year. But Pavlik, who holds two
world middleweight titles,
entered the fight with questions
about his technical skills after
winning 30 of his first 34 fights
by knockout. Hopkins seemed
to have exposed many of
Pavlik's technical flaws.
"I just couldn't get off
tonight," said Pavlik, who
skipped the postfight news con-
ference and went to the hospital
for stitches. His promoter, Todd
duBoef said he believed Pavlik
"bit off more than he could
chew" by going up 10 pounds in
weight, to 170 pounds, to fight
Hopkins. "He has all the abili-
ty to be, in his weight class, a
terrific fighter," duBoef said.


tion of new players onto the
squad. "We lost a few players
from last year but some of the
younger ones stepped up this
week so it was a good tourna-
ment once again," he said.
"Last year we did not give up
any goals, this year we allowed
just one so we feel we are right
there at the same level."
Palmer said the local game
will continue its exponential
development should the student
athletes continue to progress
within the sport.
"We just want this to contin-
ue. My only concern is that
when these players, boys and
girls, advance to junior high and
onto high school they will stick
with it and be able to progress
to one day join the national
team at some point," he said.
"What we see right now is
very encouraging and we have
nothing but positive things to
look forward to."
Said Frank Johnson, public
relations officer for the
NPPSSA: "Every sporting year
begins with this tournament and
soccer has been one of our most
outstanding sports because the
girls are represented almost as
well as the boys," he said. "With
the large number of girls and
boys teams, Mr Lionel Haven
from the Bahamas Football
Association and Miss Dawn
Knowles, our senior officer
from the Ministry of Education,
were proud of the job the phys-
ical education teachers were


doing with their students at this
level."
Johnson commended
NPPSSA president Lisa Mor-
timer and tournament director
Nikita Taylor, along with COB
and the parents that outfit the
players and support the tour-
nament.
"This would not be possible
without COB allowing us to use
their great facilities every year.
We need to thank the parents,
they deserve recommendation
for allowing their children to
play and giving full support,"
he said. "We have a lot of the
kids now wearing cleats and
shin guards, they know soccer is
a tough game and you need
these things to be more aggres-
sive players."
Johnson said that with
increased exposure and good
coaching, the tournament con-
tinues to grow.
"The level of play keeps
improving every year and I am
proud of the effort set forth by
all the schools," he said. "Every
year the tournament just keeps
getting better."
Each game in the tournament
was officiated by COB physi-
cal education students Charrari
Watson and Shagarra Edge-
combe.
The next event on the
NPPSSA's calendar is volley-
ball which is scheduled to take
place at the Kendal Issacs Gym-
nasium. An official date has yet
to be announced.

Ming and Artest help





Rockets beat Mavericks


* By JAIME ARON
AP Sports Writer

DALLAS (AP) With the
game on the line, Ron'Artest
came to the rescue for Yao
Ming and the Houston Rock-
ets.
Artest scored seven points
during a 16-2 run late in the
fourth quarter that sent the
Rockets to a 112-102 victory
over the Dallas Mavericks on
Thursday night. But that's not
the only way he ingratiated him-
self to the big guy.
During the spurt, Yao caught
an elbow from Dallas' Josh
Howard. When the two started
to go face-to-face, Artest came
running in between them.
Officials weren't happy to see
Artest and blew the whistle.
After huddling, they hit Artest
with a technical foul that was
probably more for his reputa-
tion than for the act itself.
"It happens," Artest said.
"No punches thrown, no cursing
at the referees. It was a part of
the game type of thing. Some-
body threw an elbow at Yao
and I just reacted. It's nothing
to get upset about, nothing to
hold a grudge about."
Yao certainly appreciated the
support. He even went over to
an official to gripe about the
technical, saying, "He was try-
ing to separate us." Yao and
Artest then slapped hands and
walked away.
"Ron's a very good team-
mate," Yao said. "That hap-
pened once in the preseason
and he did the same thing. He's
trying to help a teammate, sac-
rificing himself."
Yao and Artest were quite a
duo with the basketball, too.
Yao finished with 30 points and
13 rebounds, and Artest scored
29 as the Rockets won their sec-
ond game in as many nights.
"Ron was terrific the whole
game," Houston coach Rick
SAdelman said.
The Mavericks stumbled in
the debut of new coach Rick
Carlisle.
Dirk Nowitzki scored 36
points and Josh Howard added
28 points and 11 rebounds; but
they scored a combined three
points on 1-of-6 shooting in the
fourth quarter. As a ter. As a team, Dal-
las was 6-of-24 in the period.
The Mavericks started the
fourth up by one and were tied
at 92 when Houston pulled
away. Dallas was only able to
get within eight after that.
S"iWe will figure it out,"
Carlisle said. "You got to be
careful about overreacting to
one.,game."
Thr ee quarters, the
Mavericks showed plenty of the
up-tempo offense Carlisle has
promised, but not much of the
tight defense that's supposed to
trigger it. The Rockets hit 50
points midway through the sec-
ond quarter and had 85 through
three quarters. They had only-
82 in their opener at home the

PHOENIX (AP) No
telling how good the New

they get to play a game at
home.
They made it 2-0 on the road
to start the season with a wire-
to-wire 108-95 victory over
-Phoenix on Thursday night.
spoiling the home. debut of Suns
coach Terry Porter.
"Man, this was a great team
effort,," New Orleans' Chris
Paul said. "The way those guys
started knocking down shots, as
a point guard, it made my job so
easy."
Paul had 20 points, 10 assists
and eight rebounds.
The Suns and Steve Nash
seem to bring out the best in
him.
"He respects Steve probably
more than any point guard in
the league, just because of the
way he plays the game and the
way he carries himself," New
Orleans coach Byron Scott said.
"But he'loves the challenge of
going against him as well."
. The Hornets beat the Suns
for the fifth time in a row after
going 4-0 against them last sea-
son.
Peja Stojakovic added 20
points before leaving the game
with a sprained right ankle in
the first few seconds of the
fourth quarter. New Orleans
already was without starting
center Tyson Chandler, who
sprained his right ankle against
the Warriors.
Morris Peterson added 21
and David West 18 for New
Orleans. James Posey scored
13, including three 3-pointers
in the fourth quarter.
"When you've got a gdy like
Tyson missing," Peterson said.
"everybody else has to step
their game up a little more
defensively. With us hitting
shots,, I think we're a danger-
ous team."


James and Gibson assist



Cavaliers tame Bobcats


* By TOM WITHERS
AP Sports Writer

CLEVELAND (AP) -
LeBron James watched, wait-
ed and wondered if he was ever
going back into the game. Once
he re-entered, he was hardly
needed.
Branded a one-man team in
the past, the Cavaliers showed
they can survive without their
superstar.
James scored 22 points but
was resting on the bencl4 when
Cleveland regained control in
the fourth quarter, and the Cav-
aliers won their home opener
96-79 over Charlotte on Thurs-
day night to spoil well-traveled
coach Larry Brown's debut with
the Bobcats.
Daniel Gibson scored 25
points 20 in the first half -
and Mo Williams added 17 in
his home debut for Cleveland,
which put away the Bobcats
while James sat.'
"It was kind of weird seeing
LeBron on the bench," center
Zydrunas Ilgauskas said. "We
got away with it, and if we can
do that it will only help us and
help his career."
James barely missed a triple-
double, adding nine rebounds
and nine assists in only 30 min-
utes for the Cavs, who let the


Bobcats trim a 19-ppint lead to
five in the third quarter. But
with James seated and wearing
sweats, Cleveland regrouped
and pushed its lead back to, 16
to win comfortably.
"We had a lot of guys con-
tribute and I got a lot of rest,"
James said. "Coach believes in
our roster and I believe in our
roster. I don't have to average
42 minutes like I have in the
past because of our depth."
Jason Richardson scored 24
and Gerald Wallace 13 for the
Bobcats.
Gibson made three 3-point-
ers and eight of 10 shots in the
first half, when the Cavs opened
a 17-point lead that swelled to
58-39 on James' driving layup
in the third.
But the young Bobcats, who
went 0-8 in the preseason, ral-
lied and cut it to 62-57 on
Richardson's layup.
The Cavs, though, respond-
ed while James was catching his
breath. Coach Mike Brown
pulled his star with 3:12 left in
the third quarter and didn't put
him back in until there was 7:27
remaining. While James, who
averaged 40.4 minutes per game
last season, sat, Cleveland
outscored Charlotte 19-10 and
opened a 79-63 lead.
"This team is deep, at least


on paper it's deep," said Mike
Brown, who credited Williams
with getting his team to focus
on its defense during the critical
stretch without James.
"I thought he brought our
team together," Brown satd.
"He understood it was about
-defense and got our team to
believe in that."
Williams, who came over in a
summer trade with Milwaukee,
wanted to pass around the
praise.
"It was a total team effort,"
he said. "We didn't let up
defensively and that's what we
have to do,"
Following the Bobcats' win-
less exhibition season, Brown
worried that his club wasn't pre-
pared for the opener.
"I'm not trying to make
excuses, but I don't think we're
quite ready right now," he said.
The Hall of Famer was half
right.
Charlotte was overmatched
at times, but made a game of it
in the second half before fad-
ing and falling to 0-8 in Cleve-
land.
"I'm not surprised with
what's going on," said Larry
Brown, coaching his ninth NBA
team. "The big people we're
playing against seem to be more
athletic and getting things done.


A lot of our shots are tough
shots. We're settling for long
jumpers. When we do pene-
trate, we penetrate so deep, we
get a lot of shots blocked. They
penetrate and kick it out.
"We didn't expect it to be
easy."
The Bobcats did get their first
look in niore than a year at
Adam Morrison and Sean May,
who both missed last season
with knee injuries. Morrison
recently cut off his long hair and
finished with seven points. May
had two points and missed all
six of his field-goal attempts.
Leading by nine after one,
Brown, who wants to limit
James to 38 minutes per game
this season, kept the Olympic
gold medalist on the bench for
the first 6-plus minutes of the
second quarter. James checked
in with 5:45 left and the Cava-
liers quickly ripped off eight
straight to push their lead to 18.
While James was on the
bench, Cleveland rookie JJ.
Hickson grabbed a loose ball in
the lane and threw down a
nasty, two-handed slam for his
first points as a pro.
James, usually on the receiv-
ing end of ovations, jumped out
of his chair and screamed for
Hickson, who didn't play in the
Cavs' opener.

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y.
(AP) The Bills will be
without three starters when
they host the New York Jets
in an AFC East matchup
Sunday.
Receiver Josh Reed,
defensive end Aaron
Schobel and right guard
Brad Butler are all out with
injuries for Buffalo (5-2).
Reed hurt his right ankle
and Achilles' tendon in the
loss at Miami this past week-
end. He ranks second on the
team with 26 catches and 288
yards. Roscoe Parrish and
rookie James Hardy will
likely share duties replacing
Reed.
Butler sprained his left
knee in the first half of Buf-
falo's win over San Diego
two weeks ago. Schobel
injured a ligament and bone
in his left foot against Ari-
zona on October 5. Jason
Whittle will get the start for
Butler and Ryan Denney
will replace Schobel.
Nickel back Ashton
Youboty (foot) is question-
able.
The Bills have lost two of
three and are tied for the
division lead with New Eng-
land (5-2), a game ahead of
the Jets (4-3).


N:albandian to face Davydenko





in Paris Masters semifinals


* By JEROME PUGMIRE
AP Spol ts Writer
PARIS (.\PP. -Top-ranked
Ra l-Naiat retired with a
knee injury after4osmg the first
set 6-1 against Nikolay Davy-
denko in the quarterfinals of
the Paris Masters on Friday,
just hours after Roger Federer
pulled out because of a sore
back.
Nadal received massage
treatment on his right thigh at
4-1 down nd was unable to
start the second set.
"When I push with the right
leg all the time, the knee wasn't
there," Nadal said. "I felt a
sharp, acute pain."
The Spaaiard said he felt
nagging knee pains earlier this
week.
Second-ranked Federer
pulled out shortly before his
quarterfinal against James
Blake because of a stiff back,
but said it wasn't serious.
"This is the first time ever
I've pulled out during a tour-
nament, so it feels bad," said
Federer, wh o apologized to the
crowd at th,. Bercy indoor are-
na said. "I don't like to do it.
"Usually the back is some-
thing that takes a few days and
it's better a gain. I'm confident
and I'm positive that hopefully
it's going to get better in the
next few days."
The 1 tth-seeded Blake will
face either No. 7 Andy Rod-
dick or No. 13 Jo-Wilfried
Tsonga, who played later.
Defending champion David
Nalbandian advanced to the
semifinals lby defeating fourth-
seeded Andy Murray 7-6 (3),
6-3, and wil next meet Davy-


denko, the 2006 champion.
"I played almost perfect,"
Nalbandian said. "I think I
return really well and that's
important in indoor (tennis)."
Murray's 14-match winning
streak was snapped, and he
failed in his bid to win a record
third straight Masters title after
victories at Madrid and Cincin-
nati.
"I'm obviously disappointed
to lose, but I'm glad that I
played against a guy as good
as him," Murray said. "He
probably returned better than
me and created a few more
chances."
Federer has still never
reached the semifinals at the
Paris Masters, losing in the
2002 and 2003 quarterfinals.
Federer said he first felt a
surge of pain when serving dur-
ing his second-round match
against Robin Soderling on
Wednesday. The pain subsided
overnight but came back in the
third round against Marin Cil-
ic when he lunged to retrieve a
shot.
"Usu'ally overnight and
maybe with painkillers you sort
of get over it, but I just feel like
I just can't play the way it is
right now," Federer said. "I
mean, you can hit balls but you
can't play professional tennis
against the best in the world."
Federer and Nadal said they
hope to play in the season-end-
ing Masters Cup that begins
Nov. 9 in Shanghai.

Aaron Rodgers'


contract to 2014


GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) _
The Green Bay Packers signed
first-year starting quarterback
Aaron Rodgers to a contract
extension through the 2014 sea-
son on Friday.
Rodgers was the Packers'
first-round pick in 2005 but did-
n't get his shot at starting until
Brett Favre retired in the off-


season. Favre then abruptly
unretired and was traded to the
New York Jets.
Rodgers so far has justified
the Packers' decision to stick'
with him in his first seven games
as a starter, leading the team to
a 4-3 record while throwing 12
touchdowns and four intercep-,
tions.
