job cuts

Tribune Staff Reporter

Police were called to bring
calm to a chaotic scene at hoiel
union headquarters yesterday
morning, where some former
and current hotel workers
alleged that Atlantis job losses
were targeted by the union's
president to extinguish a poten-
tial threat to his position.
Around 25 people, repre-
senting themselves as.members
of the "Unity Team," which had
wanted to run against Bahamas
Hotel Catering and Allied
Workers Union (BHCAWU)
president Roy Colebrooke in
next May's elections, shouted
that they had been "cherry-
picked" for unemployment by
the president.
With arms flailing and voices
echoing around the building,
the workers made their way into
the union building to confront
Mr Colebrooke at around
They had a brief but heated
exchange with Mr Colebrooke
before he locked himself in a
conference room with the

'Outrage' on customs officer's

Tribune Staff Reporter.
AN 11-year-old boy is being
questioned by police when he
was allegedly found in posses-
sion of an unloaded handgun
while on school premises.
while e police are remaining
tight-hipptd about theJ 'dent
ing Commissioner Reginald
Ferguson said the boy allegedly
made "threats" to other,stu-
dents, prompting school offi-
cials to alert police, which led to
the discovery of the weapon..
Although police have not
released the name of the school,
a teacher at Naomi Blatch Pri-
mary School, whose name is
being withheld, claimed the inci-
dent occurred there. Attempts
to reach school officials were
unsuccessful up to press time.
Said Acting Commissioner
Ferguson: "I think it came out
in some cross conversations
between students. I understand
that even some threats were
made which led to the aware-
ness of what was taking place
there. There were some threats,
it seemingly was attributed to
him and-which caused the con-
cern and caused other things to
happen and police got involved
and this was discovered."
According to a report
released by Asst, Supt Walter

Evans, the 11-year-old was
found with a 9mm handgun
around 3pm Thursday. There
were no bullets in the gun.
The boy has been released
from police custody, but inves-
tigators are working to discover
how he got the gun. .
"It's important that we deter-
mine exactly how he came to
be in possession of such a
WOaRpn. but that is something
that we have vet to determine.
That's certainly a very danger-.
ous situation that kind of
weapon in the hands of a child
like that, yoib can only imagine
what could have happened.
S"So it's a serious matter and
it's got to be thoroughly looked
into and proper determinations
made to see how that happened,
why this child was exposed to
this kind of thing," Mr Ferguson
said yesterday.
It was unknown up to press
:time yesterday if the boy would
face any charges.
"Suffice it to say that we are
looking into it and will make
some determination. We are
investigating the matter and will
i determine based on what comes
* out in evidence from this mat-
ter," Mr Ferguson said.

There are no. plans yet to
expand the $6 million pay-out
authorised by trustees of the
Hotel and Allied Industries
Health and Welfare Benefit
Fund to give additional cash to

any of the 800 who lost their
jobs at Atlantis this week,
according to union executives.
However, the union is "com-
mitted to. assisting the member-
ship" and may call for further
funds to be made available "if
things don't get better," accord-

ers selected by managers at the
"When we asked manage-
ment how they came about the
decision (who to let go), man-
agement indicated clearly: per-
formance, attitude, behaviour.
People. do not come to work
late, sick all the time. When
they checked the records those
are the people they chose," said
Mr Douglas.
The union bosses denied they
played any part in the selection
process when it came to the lay-
offs, and said the workers
should have been "ashamed"
of their rowdy behaviour.
They accused former presi-
dent of the BHCAWU Thomas
Bastian, who was voted out in
2000, of orchestrating the morn-
ing's drama. Mr Douglas assert-
ed that "the authorities should
call (the former president) in
and speak to him and ask him
to neutralise himself."
This after protester Carlos
Burrows earlier identified him-
self to The Tribune as being "on
the Bastian team."
"It must be clearly under-

they are using it for political
gain at this time and it's so
wrong,'." said Mr Douglas.:'
Speaking alongside executive
members, Bishop Simeon Hall
said it must be remembered that
"the hotel union run by Mr
Colebrooke is the constitution-
al, duly-elected union. If peo-
ple feel offended there's a
course for them to follow. This
is not that course."
"(The union) have an awe-
some responsibility," said Bish-
op Hall. "The media has been
giving too much emphasis to the
distraction rather than what the
union is trying to do.
It has put out through its
agency some $6 million, and it is
facing this economic tsunami. I
think you should put the
emphasis...on what the duly-
elected union is doing and
hopes to do."
Demonstrators told the
media to stay tuned for the out-
come of a December 3 "special
call" meeting at the union. Mr
Burrows said that at the meet-
ing "the people would come out
in droves to reclaim this build-
ing. This place which is right-
fully theirs."
Mr Colebrooke denied that
such a meeting would take place
- pointing out that only he can
call union meetings. He and Mr
Douglas said they do not recog-
nise the "Unity Team."
"There's only one union," said
Mr Douglas.
The Tribune attempted to
reach Mr Bastian but he was
said to be off the island until
later this month.

firm or deny if the incident
occurred at Naomi Blatch Pri-
mary School.
He did say. however, that the
public school system was ade-
quately equipped with psychol-
ogists to counsel students when
situations like Thursday's occur.
"All appropriate steps are
taken by the counselling unit
and school psychologists. Spe-
cial Services at my ministry,
whenever any incident occurs,
has a very experienced group
of counsellors who intervene
whenever any situation arises,"
Mr Bethel said.

When asked if the union
would make representation to
the fund's trustees based on the
redundancy exercise to ask for
the pay-out to be expanded to
:benefit those who were affect-
ed, Mr Colebrooke said such a
question was "premature."
"First of all you need to
understand that we are just in
the process now of starting pay-
ments (to those hotel workers
who were on reduced work
weeks and would have applied
immediately after the pay-out
was announced at the end of
October)," said Mr-Colebrooke.
The Health and Welfare Ben-
efit Fund pay-out was intend-
ed to cushion the blow to an
estimated 6,000 hotel workers
who had been put on work
weeks reduced to two or three
days in September and Octo-
President of the Bahamas
Hotel Employers Association
and fund trustee, J Barrie Far-
rington, said the money being
offered represented "a signifi-
cant drain" on its reserves.

Yesterday BHCAWU secre-
tary-general Leo Douglas said
he believes around 1,500
Atlantis employees applied for
the funds, to be sent directly to
whoever the worker owed
"Many people who were laid
off this week have come and
got their benefit already. If you
have to go back in the future
(and come up with more funds),
that is what you have to do,"
said Mr Douglas.
Mr Colebrooke emphasised
that everything has to be "done
in a calculated way."
"You must understand that
thp fund hfas rules, regulations
and policies. You can't just go
to a fund and say I come today
and then I come tomorrow. The
board of trustees will have to
come together as we go down
the road."
Bishop Simeon Hall previ-
ously expressed his disappoint-
ment at the time the pay-out
was announced, saying it would
not benefit those in the hotel
sector who had already been
made unemployed.

After the ambulance failed

after the paramedics arrived
and Sgt Raymond Burrows, the

had to restore calm.
The officer stopped a passing

The new rate rules came into
effect this semester, just over a
year after Minister of Educa-
tion CarL.Bethel told The Tri-
bune that the policy was being
reviewed by government offi-
cials in conjunction with COB.
At that time he said they
were "reviewing the policy so
far as it affects persons who,
under the constitution of the
Bahamas, would, but for the
fact that they have not reached
the age of 18, be entitled to
apply for citizenship."
Yesterday Mr Bethel said
COB's decision to change the

policy "reflects the position of
the government."
He said: "We don't wish to
have a country where it could
be said that we are discriminat-
ing against persons here. We
think the more highly educat-
ed persons in the Bahamas are,
the people who live here and'
are prepared to make contribu-
tions, the better it will be for
the Bahamas."
The- issue of..discrimination
arose previously because chil-
dren born to foreign parents in
the Bahamas, or to Bahamian
women whose husbands are for-
eign, 'cannot apply for citizen-
ship until they are 18 around
the time when they would be
seeking to move on to higher

They then have a 12-month
period in which they can apply,
and if they are able to do so,
the process can take years to
come to a conclusion.
This has traditionally left
young people who are unable
to pay the higher international
fees frustrated in their ambi-

tions to educate themselves
beyond high school.
Meanwhile, without citizen-
ship in any country at this stage
they do not have access to a
passport to travel abroad to
take up studies elsewhere

Bahamian, Lucien Emmanuel,
told The Tribunie that the poli-

"We need to encourage peo-
ple who want to participate to

Mr Emmanuel described the
rules as creating a class of
ostracised, dejected individuals
who feel unwanted and denied
opportunities to progress in the
only country they know.
He suggested the economy
and the crime rate could benefit
from the policy change which
has now occurred.

though many may have
attempted to increase rev-

price reducing initiatives,
increasing operational costs
have had a direct impact on
productivity and profitability.
"The key indicator is not
necessarily sales, it's how a
business is controlling and
adjusting its costs that will

determine if profitability
changes," said Mr D'Aguiliar.
He said even in the case of a
business which does experi-
ence an increase in sales,
inventory costs would proba-
bly also have increased. He
said that an exact price adjust-
ment would appear to be an
automatic response to this sit-
uation, but this is impossible in

a depressed economic climate,
as it will result in the loss of
Mr D'Aguiliar said that with
the Christmas holiday being
the most lucrative time of year
for businesses, the economic
tsunami could not have come
at a worse point.
"For consumers who are
already skeptical on spending
their scarce dollar, most will
likely make purchases of
essentials like groceries and
toiletries. For those stores that
sell luxury .items, Christmas
sales will almost certainly be
bleak at best," he said. ,
To other businesses hoping

for increased sales during the
holidays, Mr D'Aguiliar said:
"There will be a situation of
what I call the Wall-Mart
effect. People will shift their
purchases to stores where they
think they will get a good
But he adds that although
it is expected that the econo-
my will continue to decline
throughout the next 18 to 24
months, "It's not going to con-
tinue to decline forever."
Mr D'Aguiliar said that
despite the grim economic sit-
uation, business is about
cycles, and that in time, con-
ditions will change.

Pressure on Obama to restore rule of law

IN A Senate hearing room in Septem-
ber, weeks before Barack Obama won the
election, a series of law professors, lawyers
and civil libertarians outlined one of the
biggest challenges that will be facing the
next president: bringing the U.S. govern-
ment back under the rule of law.
Over the past eight years, they testified,
American legal traditions have been degrad-
ed in areas ranging from domestic spying to
government secrecy. The damage that has
been done by President George W. Bush,
Vice President Dick Cheney, former Attor-
ney General Alberto Gonzales and others is
so grave that just assessing it will be an
enormous task. Repairing it,will be even
more enormous.
This was not a new complaint. Civil lib-
erties advocates have been sounding the
alarm for years. The difference now is that
a Democrat is about to assume the presi-
dency, and one of the most ardent defend-
ers of civil liberties in his party- Sen. Russ
Feingold of Wisconsin is dedicated to
putting the restoration of the rule of law
on the agenda of the incoming government,
with the support of the American Civil Lib-
erties Union and other groups. .:
Feingold, wh6o s ctiaiian oTthe Senate
Judiciary Committee's subcommittee on
the Constitution. alreadyhais left his imprint
on campaign finance, with the McCain-Fein-
gold law, and has been a leading critic of
pork-barrel spending and corporate wel-
Now he has a new cause. Before the elec-
tion, Feingold argued that whoever won
should make a priority of rolling back Bush
administration policies that eroded consti-
tutional rights and disrupted the careful sys-
tem of checks and balances. Now that Oba-
ma.- a former constitutional law professor
who made this issue a cause early in the
campaign has won the election, there is
both reason for optimism and increased
pressure on the president-elect to keep his
promises. :
Feingold has been compiling a list of areas
for the next president to focus on, which
he intends to present to Obama. It includes
amending the Patriot Act, giving detainees
greater legal protections and banning tor-
ture, cruelty and degrading treatment. He
wants to amend the Foreign Intelligence

Surveillance Act to restore limits on domes-
tic spying. And he wants to roll back the
Bush administration's dedication to classi-
fying government documents.
Many reforms could be implemented
directly by the next president. Obama could
renounce Bush's extreme views of executive
power, including the notion that in many
areas, the president can act as he wants
without restraint by Congress or.the judi-
ciary. Obama also could declare his inten-
tion not to use presidential signing state-
ments as Bush did in record numbers to
reject parts of bills signed into law.
Congress also has work to do. Many of
the excesses of the last eight years have
been the result of Feingold's colleagues'
capitulation as much as presidential over-
reaching. He expects Congress to do more
than just fix laws like the Patriot Act. He
wants the Senate to question presidential.
nominees closely at their confirmation hear-
ings about their commitment to the rule of
law. And he hopes Congress will do its duty
to impose the rigorous supervision it rarely
imposed in the Bush years.
Restoring the rule of law will not be easy,
Feingold concedes. Part of the problem is
that it is hard to know how much damage
has been done. Many programmes, like
domestic spying and extraordinary rendi--
tion the secret transfer of detainees to
foreign countries where they are harshly
interrogated have operated in the shad-
And it would be a mistake to overlook
Congress' role. Members from both parties
voted for laws like the Military Commis-
sions Act of 2006, which stripped detainees
of habeas corpus rights, and looked the oth-
er way while the rule of law was diminished.
Still, Feingold is convinced that this is a
critical moment. If the next president does
not reverse the Bush administration's doc-
trines, he fears that they will no longer sim-
ply be the policies of one extremist presi-
'dent. The danger is that they will be the
nation's new understanding of the Consti-

EDITOR, The Tribune.
Many of the world's rep-
utable economists and financial
gurus agree that there is a pend-
ing worldwide economic melt-
down, the degree of the melt-
down is uncertain at this time.
Countries like America,
Japan and recently China are
all providing "stimulus packets"
to help their economies and to
cushion the devastating blows
that their citizens would poten-
tially face if nothing is done to
protect their interests.
Many middle class and poor
Bahamian families are out of
work, hurting and without hope.
Where is the visionary leader-
shipthat seeks to create a bipar-
tisan, all inclusive, extensive
national plan that promotes a.
higher level of expectation and
true independence for Bahami-
ans? A vision is needed that
propels and positions us rightly
into a first-world status. This is
not the time for political grand-
standing and petty indifference;
we need to solidify ourselves as
Bahamians and throw off the
partisan caps until we can steer,
ourselves out of this unprece-
dented economic dilemma with
minimum fallout.
Obviously the Bahamas, like
many other Caribbean nations,
does not have the economic
leverage and posture that
America, China and Japan
enjoy. However, neither coun-
try started out as world leaders,
their respective leaders saw the
potential of the countries, got
a vision of the future, sat down
with stake holders of the coun-
try and planned for their indi-
vidual journeys.
The Hon Hubert A Ingra-
ham, Prime Minister of The
Bahamas, in a public address to
the nation gave a somewhat
pessimistic report on the state of
the economy with very little
hope. However, to the Prime
Minister's credit he advised
Bahamians to be prudent in
spending, rewrite their mort-
gages if necessary and even
promised a provisional unem-
ployment benefit plan to be
implemented. He further

advised Bahamians of payment
arrangements his government
had already implemented with
BEC in an effort to provide
help for distressed citizens
struggling to pay their electrici-
ty bill. Additionally social ser-
vices would give financial relief
to families that are without food
or other essentials. I believe
these gestures by the govern-
ment are necessary and com-
mendable, but they are not
nearly enough. A reasonable
subsequent question is: "What
happens to these persons that
are unable to pay their electric-
ity bill in the ensuing months?
When persons have used up the
temporary provisions and the
government is unable to do
more, then what? I anm remind-
ed of an old adage that says,
"Give a man a fish you have fed
him for a day, teach a man to
fish and you have fed him for a
lifetime." An empowered peo-
ple in a diversified infrastruc-
turally developed country
equals success without limita-
What about an economic
stimulus packet for the
Bahamas, Mr Prime Minister?
Mr Ingraham spoke about cap-
ital investments that are online
and ready to go. It's good that
the government will continue
with these projects, however
considering the massive chal-
lenges of unemployment this
country is now facing, this is
merely a drop in the bucket.
.The government needs' to do
much more to help maintain
stability in our country. A sub-
stantial construction initiative,
carefully planned would
undoubtedly play a major role
in the reduction of domestic vio-
lence and criminality in our
Additionally the Bahamas
Development Bank, if properly
structured and managed can
partnership with Bahamian
enterprises to create state of the

art chicken farms, crop farms,
and fish farms. (The pioneer-
ing list of entrepreneurship is
only limited to the writing space
in this article). We need to
move towards feeding our-
selves, now is the time to get
serious about the future of this
country. No more third world
banana republic mentality. We
have some of the brightest
minds in the Bahamas....Let us
throw down the measuring stick
of mediocrity and divisive poli-
tics that keeps us bind to a third
world status, especially in our
government systems. Let's
reach for a new stick of excel-
lence in the first world. With all
the intellectual human resources
we have in this country: "We
can do it."
Let's be clear, deliberate and
direct about our initiatives to
diversify our economy. In order
to achieve this ambitious chal-
lenge, the government of the
Bahamas along with the stake-
holders of this country would
have to develop a very exten-
sive bipartisan plan of steward-
ship, unparalleled vision and
wisdom to borrow the neces-
sary amount of money and-a
sensible approach to pay back
the money. The amount needed
could very well be in the bil-
*lions of dollars, but I believe
the benefit to the country would
far outweigh the burden of a
nationally unprecedented loan.
Such actions would help us
shield ourselves and lessen the
blow of a prevailing American
recession. Private enterprises
and entrepreneurship would
also excel to a new level due to
the tremendous leverage afford-
ed to them by a "stimulus pack-
et." It is time to take some of
the eggs out of that one
"tourism" basket. I know this
is easier said than done, but
"the road to a thousand miles
begins with the first step." Let's
plan the journey together and
start stepping, now! Forward,
upwards, onwards and together.

EDITOR, The Tribune.
It's tempting to blast the PLP
and their spin doctors for gross
hypocrisy, for their criticism of
the so-called "plan" that Mr
Ingraham outlined to the nation
on Tuesday night (November
11, 2008).
But I won't do that, I'll just
cite their ideas.
Other than give more mon-
ey away from a treasury 'that
both parties have left in a pre-
carious position with their bor-
rowing and spending over the

I always find it intriguing
when politicians blast the other
guy's ideas without offering
anything different of their own.
The private sector is the
engine of the economy, not the
government, and with people
hurting we need to find a way to
encourage growth in the private
sector, not government.
Growth in government is a

Should we expect anything,

more from politicians though?
As H. L. Mencken said:
"Under democracy one par-
ty always devotes its chief ener-
gies to trying to prove that the
other party is unfit to rule and
both commonly succeed, and
are right."
Truth ne known, no one
(FNM or PLP) is sure exactly
what to do or when. Only time
will tell.

'Plant a Million Tree Campaign'


IN keeping with the Ministry of Envi-
ronment's "Plant a Million Tree Cam-
paign", Minister of the Environment Earl
Deveaux planted coconut trees on land
cleared for a community park in the R E
Cooper/Florence Gardens subdivision.
Minister Deveaux met with the resi-
dents of the community and they dis-
cussed plans for the proposed park.
"We are going to assist them with all
the trees that they would like. In terms of
technical advice the Botanic Gardens
and the Bahamas National Trust (BNT)
have a number of trees in stock. We're a
part of the million tree programme for
the whole Bahamas so this would assist
us in facilitating that broad objective," Mr
Deveaux said.
BNT said it applauds the initiative of
the United Nations Environment Pro-
gramme (UNEP) that encourages busi-
nesses, communities, organizations and
governments to enter tree planting.
pledges online with the objective of plant-
ing at least one billion trees worldwide
each year. UNEP plans to plant seven
billion trees throughout the world.

BNT, through its "Plant for the Planet"
programme for the Bahamas, is encour-
aging Bahamians to combat climate
change and help to plant a million trees
by December 31, 2009.
Sean Adderley, president of the
Homeowners Association, said that the
community members wish to have the
park developed and therefore organised
a plan to be implemented.
The plan includes planting of various
native trees, a walking path, a communi-
ty centre/club house and playground.
Minister Deveaux said, "Once it
becomes a public park then the Ministry
of Youth, Sports and Culture can assist us
with getting some'equipment here for
the children for example, a sand box and
a jungle gym set. So there will be a park
that people can use for recreation for
adults and children."
"This is vital to them. When they have
this park in here the whole community
can get together and meet readily.
Beyond politics this is a community that
is functioning the way we would like our
other communities to function. For me
it's a neat fit where you can assist people

in doing what they want to do," he said.
Mr Adderley said residents of the com-
munity are trying to assist themselves by
developing the land provided for them by
Arawak Homes.
He said, "We know these are tough
economic times now so we are trying to
assist ourselves. We have come up with a
plan where we can work as a community

with the government.
"We are trying to develop a park
where we can have a safe, clean envi-
ronment with lots of trees for our chil-
dren to grow in. Hopefully, we can
become a model park for the rest of the
Bahamas to see there is still a group of
people who can work together success-
fully," he said.

The men are accused of the

McKinney, who was stabbed to
death on March 13, 2001, at the
former Royal Oasis Country

March 13, 2001, when they were
attacked by a group of young

leaving the Jon B, a popular
night spot for spring breakers.
McKinney suffered a fatal
stab wound to the heart during
the fight. He also sustained
defensive wounds on the hands
and wrists.'
Omar Malakius, and his

Malakius, were the final
defence witnesses called to the

Officer Malakius said about
an hour later when he arrived at
the station his son had already
been interviewed by Police
Sergeant Kirkland Bowe.
He said he was not present
during the interview and his son
did not have a lawyer present at
the time.
Officer Malakius told the
Court that he knew Sgt Bowe
and they had worked together
for some 15 years prior to the
incident on March 13. He said
that they had a "pretty good"
working relationship.
Prosecutor Williams asked
Officer Malakius if he sat in
Court when Ervin Palacious
had given his evidence last
"Yes," he replied.
"Are you aware of the rule
of evidence that witnesses are

not supposed to sit and hear
evidence?" she asked. "Yes,"
he replied.
Prosecutor Williams asked
Officer Malakius if he had
worked with Sgt Bowe on other
cases and whether Bowe was a
good officer.
He said that they had worked
together on about 10 cases and
that Bowe "seemed to be a
good officer."
"Would a good officer inform
a suspect of his rights?" Asked
Williams. Officer Malakius
responded that he would.
The case was adjourned to
Monday for final summations.

Goods to the Department of
Social Services' Soldier Road
Home for Senior Citizens on
Public relations officer for the
Prison Sergeant Rolean Smith
said the penal institution wanted
to give the Home "tangible
things" that it needed to operate
on a daily basis, such as dishes,
flatware, bowls and blenders.
"We also cooked them (the
residents) a nice hearty soup to
give them physical nourish-
ment," Sergeant Smith said.'
"We are also going to be
spending a little time with them
to let them know that we care."
She explained that each year
at the time of Prison Recogni-
tion Week, the institution tries to
give back to society.
The prison, she added, now
wants to contribute on a more
consistent basis. Sergeant Smith

said that one of the initiatives
the prison has planned is the
adoption of the Soldier Road
Home for Senior Citizens.
"We wrote around to different
charitable operations and the
home said that it would be more
than happy to receive help from
Her Majesty's Prison. We care
about our precious pearls so we
just wanted to give back to
them," she said.

istrator at the Soldier Road

has the capacity to maintain 13.
Ms White said she appreciates
what Her Majesty's Prison is
doing. She said that the occu-

for family and friends to visit
more often.

cially for family members and

Rolle, surveyor Huey Williams, and Lucayan's manager Tim Hauber.

AUTEC wants to

buy from Narth

Andros farmers

The AUTEC military base in
Fresh Creek, Andros, has
announced plans to purchase its
fresh fruits and vegetables from.
North Andros farmers, Com-
mander Jeff Pafford, officer in-
charge of the base, said.
"We would like to move for-
ward with a programme that
establishes a local vendor that we
can procure our produce from,"
he told BAIC executive chair-
man Edison Key during a meet-
ing on Wednesday.
"This is a step in the right
direction for. agriculture in
Andros," Mr Key said. "And
there is still more to come."
Mr Key and a high-level
Bahamas Agricultural and Indus-
trial Corporation (BAIC) dele-
gation visited North Andros on
Tuesday and Wednesday.
There was standing room only
at a meeting with the island's
farmers, during which Mr Key
outlined BAIC's initiatives
towards national food security.
He was accompanied by gen-
eral manager Benjamin Rah-
ming, BAIC board secretary and
assistant general manager Joyce
Treco, agriculture manager Lam-
onica Glinton, Lucayan Tropi-
cal's general manager Tim
Hauber and sales manager Roger
"We are trying to locate mar-
kets for local farmers and Com-
mander Pafford has indicated
that they are willing to start pur-
chasing whatever North Andros
farmers can supply," said Mr
"He has indicated that if it
works out well they might con-
sider a second phase giving farm-
ers additional business.
"It would be a good thing for
North Andros farmers and it ties
right in with what we are trying to
accomplish through BAIC in the
marketing of Bahamian pro-
Mr Key said he is keen on
securing a partnership with Nas-
sau hydroponics operators
Lucayan Tropical Produce.
"Lucayan Tropical might be
moving into Andros," he said.
"They are looking at a couple
hundred acres on which to start
an agricultural project as well.
"If that works out there is a
possibility it could mean a mod-
ern packing house in North
Andros where the farmers can
get their products graded and
packaged the same as it is done in
the United States, and taken to
New Providence and elsewhere
in refrigerated trailers.
"I am very upbeat about this
and I believe we will accomplish
our mission in time," said Mr
Presently AUTEC accesses it,

Cape Canaveral, loaded on

"We, as your market, are I

Opening lead king of clubs.
Falsecarding is an art that can be
practiced by either the declarer or the
defenders. However, like any other
art form, it can be overdone. When
this happens, it may become counter-
productive and work to the disadvan-
tage of the falsecarder.
Take this case where South was in
four spades and West led the king of
clubs. Declarer immediately recog-
nized the danger of an impending
club ruff and decided to try to talk
West out of continuing the suit. This
was an excellent idea, but South
went about it in the wrong way.
In his attempt to discourage a

club continuation, he dropped the ten
on the first trick, hoping West would
construe this as a possible singleton
and stop playing the suit. But West
had no problem at all. He continued
with the ace and another club, ruffed
by East, who then cashed the ace of
diamonds to set the contract.
The error in South's approach
can be seen if viewed fronj the West
hand. If West credits declarer with
the singleton ten of clubs, it means
East must have the 6-4-3-2. Since
East would not play the three from
this holding, but would instead fol-
low with the discouraging deuce,
West knows that South must have at
least one more club.
West also knows that East would
play the three whenever he started
with the 3-2 doubleton or the single-
ton three. So West continues clubs at
trick two and defeats the contract.
Peculiarly enough, South's best
shot to get West to stop playing clubs
is to play the deuce to the first trick!
West might then fear that East started
with the 10-6-4-3, and shift to
another suit.
From this example, we can derive
a general rule: When declarer wants
to encourage or discourage the con-
tinuation of a particular suit, he
should signal to the defender as if he
were that defender's partner. If he
wants the suit continued, he should
follow with a high card; if he wants it
discontinued, he should play his low-
est card.

Tomorrow: Thanks, but no thanks.

'Big Daddy'

in draw

And 'Psycho' suffers four-round loss

Senior Sports Reporter
First Cla Promotions has
been forced to take its
fighters abroad after get-
ting a one-year suspension
by the Bahamas Boxing Commission
(BBC). :.
On Tuesday night, Jerry 'Big Dad-
dy' Butler and Anthotiy 'Psycho'
Woods fought at the.Seminole Hard
Rock LIVE Arena 4ih Hollywood,
Butler, now 7-5-1, pulled off a stun-
ning draw against 2004 Olympian
Wilmer Vazquez, who went into the
six-round fight undefeated at 6-0 with
4 knock outs. ,
The scorecards red -59-55 for
Vazquez, 58-56 for Butldr and 57-57,
but Butler felt that ht reigned
supreme in the ring d-espite the
judges' decision.
"That performance-'was awesome
for me. Apparently it was like I won
the fight, but because lie was an
Olympic fellow and undefeated, there
was no way they were.going to let
me from a little dot on the map .ome
out on top," said Butler, who didn't


Haye aimr

seem perplexed at all by the decision.
"From the fight start, it never
stopped. There was a lot of blows
thrown round for round. I was a little
more busier than him putting my
punches together. But he was so big,
when he held me, I got tired trying to
get away. So I just decided to wait
until the referee said 'break' and then
went to work."
Like the rest of the local fighters,
Butler said he's quite annoyed that
First Class Promotions, the only pro-
mdtional boxing company in the
Bahamas, was suspended for a year
by the BBC.
"I don't think that makes any sense
because they are only hurting the
fighters," Butler said. "First Class
Promotions was doing it for almost 20
years and now you are going to wait
until we get our first British Com-
monwealth title in more than 20 years

Since returning from the fight, But-
ler said he has been right back in the
gym training and waiting for the next
opportunity to go overseas since he
can't fight at home.
Woods, one of the local favourites,
took on Olympic alternate Danny
O'Conner, but he suffered a unani-
mous four-round loss in a junior wel-
terweight bout.
The scorecards read 40-36, 40-36,
40-35 in favour of O'Conner, who
improved to 2-0 with 1 KO, dropping
Woods to 6-11 with 2 KOs.
Traveling with the two fighters was
manager/coach Ray Minus Jr.
While they had different results,
Minus Jr said both fighters gave a
.very good account of themselves and
it's only the beginning of great things
for the future.

"In the early part of the fight, the
boxer started off jabbing, but in the
middle part, Jerry started boxing. In
the second round, Jerry jumped right
on him and won that round and kept
the pressure on," Minus Jr. reflected.
"In the third round, it was almost
like a sea-saw fight where both sides
were landing combinations, which
was a very competitive round. But in'
the fourth, it was almost the same,
even though I thought Jerry won it."
After claiming that "Jerry domi-
nated the fifth round," Minus Jr said
a weary Vazquez held on for his life
in the sixth and that may have made
the difference in the outcome.
."The promoters felt that Jerry had
the performance of the show and they
definitely want him to come back and
fight away," Minus Jr pointed out.

New heavyweight Haye aims to KO Barrett

AP Sports Writer

Haye has ridiculed fighters in
the heavyweight division since
he unified the cruiserweight
titles and decided to move up.
Now the British fighter gets
the chance to test his speed and
punching power in his first
heavyweight fight Saturday
against American Monte Bar-
rett, who has been in the ring
with some of the biggest cham-
pions around Wladimir
Klitschko and Nikolai Valuev.
Tall, with a big right hand but
a suspect chin, Haye (21-1)
believes that he is a natural to
thrive in the heavyweight divi-
sion. The 6-foot-3 eventually
wants to take on 7-foot Valuev
and the Klitschko brothers.
Haye says many of the cur-
rent heavyweights are over-
weight "chumps" who have
been around for too long. At

28, he believes he has time on
his side.
"People thought I was an
exciting, entertaining fighter at
cruiserweight, but you haven't
seen anything yet," Haye said
ahead of the non-title fight at
London's 02 Arena.
"I had to take off 30 pounds
every time I had to get down to
cruiserweight and I don't have
to do that any more. I was still
good enough to become undis-
puted champion at cruiser-
weight, the No. 1 in the world.
This time you are going to see
the real 'Hayemaker.'"
Barrett (34-6) has lost to
Wladimir Klitschko, Valuev and
Hasim Rahman.
"He was a monster," Barrett
said of Klitschko, who floored
him five times in London before
the fight was stopped in the sev-
enth round. He went the 12-
round distance with Rahman
and was stopped in 11 by Val-

"David was a good cruiser-
weight, but I see him as an aver-
age heavyweight," Barrett said.
"You're going to see just how
average he is when I expose
Haye believes he enters the
heavyweight division when it's
wide open. Evander Holyfield is
trying to become the oldest
world champion at 46 in the
WBA title fight on Dec. 20
against Valuev in Zurich,
Haye aims to make an imme-
diate impression by knocking
Barrett out early in a fight that
has struggled to sell tickets in
the 20,000 capacity arena.
"It's not even about winning
this fight for me. It's about look-
ing spectacular and knocking
Monte Barrett out," he said.
"He doesn't think I can do it.
He thinks he's bigger and
stronger, but he doesn't know
what he's let himself in for with
this fight."

Murray knocks off Feder r

Associated Press Writer

- Defending champion Roger
Federer was eliminated from
the Masters Cup on Friday with
a 4-6, 7-6 (3), 7-5 loss to Andy
Murray, one of those rare play-
ers with a winning record
against the Swiss star.
Federer, a four-time winner
of the season-ending tourna-
ment, appeared to be bothered
by a sore back that forced him
to withdraw during the Paris
Masters two weeks ago. Fed-
erer received treatment from
the trainer three times during
the match.
"I don't quit once 'I step on
court," said Federer, who noted
he had a.stomach ailment ear-
lier in the week. "Normally,
best-of-three match, it's
peanuts. So it was a pity I
couldn't handle it today. Pretty
happy I don't. have a match
tomorrow, to be honest."
Federer saved seven match
points while serving at 4-5
before Murray converted two
games later, breaking when
Federer sent a forehand long.
"A win over Roger Federer
means almost as much as win-
ning the Masters Cup to me,"
said Murray, who improved to
4-2 against him. "He's the best
player of all time."
Murray, who had his left
hand iced during the match,
will play Nikolay Davydenko
in the semifinals. Federer's loss
allowed Gilles Simon to
advance and play Novak
The ninth game of the third
set lasted 17 minutes and went
to 10 deuces. Federer fended
off the last of the seven match
points with an ace, then blasted
another before Murray sent a
forehand long.
"When you play against
Roger, you got to expect him to
play some great stuff, especial-
ly when he's behind," Murray
said. "He hit a couple of aces, a
couple of big forehands. I
missed a couple of returns I
maybe shouldn't have."

Federer tried to force a
tiebreaker, but he committed
three forehand errors while
serving at 15-15.
Murray already had clinched
a semifinal spot from the Red.
Group. But he lived up to his
promise not to take it easy,
wanting to avoid the prospect
of facing Federer again if both
were to make the final.
Federer was trying to repeat
last year's feat of rallying after
losing his opening-round
"I almost made a miracle
happen, you know," Federer
said. "I can't believe how close
I got, to be honest. So I'm actu-
ally very happy."
The atmosphere was more
akin to a final than the last
match of group play. Qi Zhong
stadium was packed, and while
the crowd overwhelmingly
favored.Federer, Murray has
won over a lot of fans.
The two players exchanged
breaks in the middle of the first
set. Then, with Murray serving
at 4-5, Federer broke at love.
Murray broke in the open-
ing game of the second set, and
again to pull ahead 5-2. He had
double-set point while serving
in the next game, only to see
Federer rally to break.
The Swiss star secured triple
breakpoint with Murray serv-
ing for the set at 5-4. Murray
forced deuce, but Federer
whacked a clean forehand win-
-ner to set up another break
chance, and Murray double-
faulted to make it 5-5.
Federer rallied from a 3-1'
deficit in the tiebreaker to even
it, but Murray ran off the last
four points.
Federer had the trainer come
out and massage his lower left
back as he lay face down on
the court during the break,
then during the next two
changeovers and frequently
rubbed the area during the
match. At one point, he sat in a
linesman's chair while waiting
for Murray to start a service

Pistons adjust to

life with Iverson .

AP Sports Writer

OAKLAND, California (AP)
- Playing well in spurts was
enough to give the Detroit Pis-
tons their first two wins with
Allen Iverson. They know they
will need to do much more than
that to win their next game
against the undefeated Los
Angeles Lakers.
The Pistons clamped down
defensively in the second half
and got back-to-back 3-point-
ers from Rasheed Wallace in
the fourth quarter to beat the
Golden State Warriors 107-102
on Thursday night.
For the second straight game,
the Pistons struggled early
defensively, allowing the War-
riors to get into the lane with
ease with their pick-and-rolls
and build a' 12-point lead. But
just like they did Tuesday in
Sacramento, when they rallied
from 15 points down, the Pis-
tons shut down the opposition
in the second half.
"Obviously that was a typi-
cal Detroit team in the second
half," Tayshaun Prince said. "In
the first half, I don't know what
that was. We've done it two
games in a row. Obviously
we're not on the same page yet.
We can't be playing like this at
this point in time going into
playing the Lakers."
The Pistons held the Warriors
without a field goal for nearly 7
minutes in one stretch, getting
11 straight misses and turnovers
on five straight possessions at
one point.
After losing its first two
games with Iverson, Detroit has
now won two in a row as the
team slowly adjusts to its newest
star. Iverson had 23 points
despite missing some easy shots,
and Richard Hamilton led the
way with 24.
"It's coming. Like I said
before, it's not going to happen
overnight," Wallace said. "This
is only our third game together.
It's going to take some time.

After Watson stepped over the

Wallace finished with a sea-

Billups scored a season-

Martin, who had missed the
previous two games with a

with 55 seconds left after he
was called for a flagrant-2 foul
for slamming his shoulder
into Cleveland forward
Anderson Varejao.
Before leaving the floor,
Martin, who was whistled for

eree Joey Crawford before he
was grabbed by Nuggets
coach George Karl and
escorted off.
"I don't think it was much

the floor extending three fin-
gers on both hands. He then
ran over, jumped and
bumped his new teammate,

trade this summer to make
such shots.
"That's my role when he

Williams said. "We will get
more comfortable when

James' flurry in the final

Romo back, are Cowboys well?

AP Football Writer

THE party line in Dallas has been
that once Tony Romo comes back,.
everything will be OK.
Romo will be back Sunday night
when the Cowboys go to Washington.
But everything might not be quite as
OK as Jerry Jones and his team think..
The Cowboys' quarterback began
practicing this week, a month after
breaking the pinkie on his throwing
hand. And while he reported some
pain, he is expected to be ready to try
to help a team that lost two of three
games without him.
It's a big game for both teams, each
chasing the Giants (8-1) in the NFC
East or at least trying to solidify a wild-
card playoff spot. For the Cowboys,
the preseason favorite to represent the
NFC in the Super Bowl, the line is that
it's a fresh start following a bye week
that allowed Romo and some other
injured starters to get healthy.
"You've got to get on a run in this
league," coach Wade Phillips says of
his team, whose four losses in nine
games are one more than the Cowboys
had in the 2007 regular season.
"We were able to last year. This
year, we started out on a run, then did-
n't keep it going. But we've got a
chance to come back and win some
The Cowboys now say they hope to
emulate the Giants, who lost to them
twice last season, then won in Dallas in
the playoffs and went on to win the
Super Bowl.
The Redskins (6-3) are two games
behind New York and also coming off
a bye. Their 26-24 win in Dallas on
Sept. 28 was the first loss by the Cow-
boys after a 3-0 start.
Washington could be without Clin-
ton Portis, the league's second-lead-
ing rusher. He has a sprained knee and
is "50-50" according to coach Jim Zorn.
His backup, Ladell Betts, might be
back, or it could be newly signed Shaun
Alexander, the 2005 NFL MVP with
Seattle, and Rock Cartwright, primar-
ily a special teamer.
The Redskins will, however, have
DeAngelo Hall, the high-priced cor-
nerback dropped by the Raiders after
eight games. Where he fits in a rotation
that already includes Shawn Springs,
Carlos Rogers and Fred Smoot is yet to
be determined. But it hasn't stopped
Hall from exchanging lost-distance
barB lthlTiTYfMlfwons, the kind of
w o fr-1oT-I0..atiis symptomatic
of U p e -r- ene that Wash-
ington hasn't had until now.
Dallas has a tough closing schedule:
all three division opponents plus Bal-
timore and Pittsburgh.,
"Three or four weeks from now,
there will be big changes," Phillips said.
"So, we'll see where we are."
The weekend began Thursday with
the New York Jets' 34-31 overtime win
at New England in a game between
.teams that were tied for the AFC East
lead. (See story on this page)

Baltimore (6-3) at New York Giants
The league's best rushing offense
against the league's best run defense -
the Giants being the former and the
Ravens the latter.
"The only way to stop somebody
like that is to run into them full speed,"
Ray Lewis says of New York's 264-
pound Brandon Jacobs, who is fourth
in the league in rushing and averaging
5.3 yards per carry.
"The name of football is hit or be
hit. So the bottom line, I don't care
how big his size is. Football is football.
And when you strap on your chin strap
I don't care how big you are, deal with
whoever has the ball and let life take
care of itself. You know what I'm say-

Jacobs does.
"I wouldn't want him to think any
other way," he says.
The Giants, who started with a rela-
tively easy schedule, are coming off a
testing stretch: at Pittsburgh, Dallas
and at Philadelphia. They passed the
exam, winning all three to open a two-
game lead in an NFC East that was
supposed to be the most competitive
division in the NFL.
The surprising Ravens have mi6ved
into a tie with Pittsburgh for first in
the AFC North. Rookie QB Joe Flac-
co hasn't thrown an interception in his
last four games.

San Diego (4-5) at Pittsburgh (6-3)
The Steelers fell into a tie with Bal-
timore by losing at home to Indi-
anapolis last week when Ben Roeth-
lisberger threw three interceptions, two
that were extremely costly. Roethlis-
berger took full responsibility, declin-
ing to blame an injured shoulder.
"The good thing is it's not the end of
the season. We'll come back," Roeth-
lisberger says.
The Chargers fired defensive coor-
dinator Ted Cottrell during their bye
week, then struggled to eke out a 20-19
win over Kansas City at home last Sun-
day. San Diego has been having trou-
ble running 25th in the NFL at 95.5
yards per game and 22nd with a 3.9
per carry average despite the presence
of LaDainian Tomlinson, now healthy
after starting the season with a sore

Tennessee (9-0) at Jacksonville (4-5)
Normally, this would be a tough spot
for the NFL's only unbeaten team.
But the Jaguars, despite a 38-14 vic-
tory last week over winless Detroit,
are struggling both on the field and
off. Coach Jack Del Rio deactivated

defensive leader Mike Peterson last
week after sending him home from
practice earlier in the week.
The Titans may get a little more
respect because of last week's win in
Chicago, when the Bears brought eight
men up to stuff the run and got burned
by Kerry Collins, who was supposed
to be simply a "game manager."

Houston (3-6) at Indianapolis (5-4)
'The Colts have beaten two good
teams, the Patriots and Steelers, to
secure a solid spot in the AFC wild-
card chase, although catching the
Titans in the AFC South seems too
big a task. Peyton Manning did his usu-
al in bringing Indy back from a 17-7
deficit in Pittsburgh last week, and the
defensive star was 266-pound rookie
defensive tackle Eric Foster, the kind
of quick, undersized defender Tony
Dungy has always prized.
The Texans should have beaten Indy
at home, but blew a 27-10 lead in the
last half of the fourth quarter thanks to
three turnovers by Sage Rosenfels, who
once again will replace the injured
Matt Schaub at quarterback.

Chicago (5-4) at Green Bay (4-5)"
The Bears are hoping Kyle Orton
can come back from his sprained ankle
after Rex Grossman played QB last
week against the Titans. But they have
other problems their usually fero-
cious pass rush has produced just five
sacks in the last four games.
. A lot of people now think the Pack-
ers were wrong not to welcome back
Brett Favre because Aaron Rodgers'
learning curve has slowed. But that's
second-guessing. All young QBs go
through ups and downs and the Pack-
ers were planning for the future as
much as for this year when they went
with Rodgers and then signed him to a

long-term deal.

Minnesota (5-4) at Tampa Bay (6-3)
Adrian Peterson now leads the NFL
in rushing and his 192 yards were the
primary reason the Vikings edged the
Packers last week.
But it's unlikely Peterson will get
192 against Tam?" Zay, wimu. is allow-
ing just 99 per game. The Bucs also
have back a newLold offensive weapon:
RB Carnelj "`Cadillac" Williams, the
2005 OffiensiveiRookie of the Year
who has missed the last 13 months with
a knee injury.

Denver (5-4) at Atlanta (6-3)
The Falcons; one of three teams in
the NFC South at 6-3 or better, would
probably love to be in the AFC West,
where the struggling Broncos lead
despite a leaky defense and a series of
injuries to running backs. The usually
potent running game now depends on
Tatum Bell, back for his second stint
with Denver; fullback Peyton Hillis;
recently promoted P.J. Pope; and just-
signed Alex Haynes.
Compare that to the Falcons, who
have Michael Turner and Jerious Nor-
wood as complementary backs help-
ing the increasingly dangerous passing
combination of rookie Matt Ryan and
Roddy White.

Detroit (0-9) at Carolina (7-2)
The Lions are looking like a team
making a serious run at 0-16. How else
to explain throwing in an out-of-shape
Daunte Culpepper against Jacksonville
last week. He remains the starter..,
The Panthers could be making a run
at home-field advantage in the NFC.
They trail the Giants by just a game;
New York has a tough finishing sched-
ule; and Carolina gets a shot at the
Giants on Dec. 21 in the Meadbwlands.

Philadelphia (5-4) at Cincinnati (1-8)
The Bengals finally won against
Jacksonville two weeks ago and then
had a bye. So are they refreshed or
have they lost momentum? Probably
doesn't matter.
Every game is a must win for the
Eagles, who are three games behind
in the NFC East after losing to the
Giants last week. They are 0-3 against
NFC East rivals, so that means they
have tiebreaker problems in a crowded
wild-card race with a half-dozen other

Cleveland (3-6) at Buffalo (5,4)
(Monday night)
"I know I am not a quitter," coach
Romeo Crennel said after Jamal Lewis
and other Browns suggested the team
quit against Denver last week in Brady
Quinn's debut as Browns quarterback.
The banged-up Bills have now lost
four of five, including three straight
AFC East games, which puts them in
poor position in a cramped division.

Arizona (6-3) at Seattle (2-7)
The Cardinals haven't had a home
playoff game since 1947, when they
were in Chicago. But they are likely
to be the first NFL team to clinch a
division this season and guarantee
themselves a home game because they
are four games ahead of all three NFC
West opponents with seven games to
go. That's important: The Cardinals
are 4-0 at home, 2-3 on the road, with
the away wins over St. Louis and San
Francisco, two of their woeful division
Matt Hasselbeck will probably be
back at quarterback for Seattle after
missing five games with a back prob-
lem that caused weakening in his right

Oakland (2-7) at Miami (5-4)
Imagine if Al Davis, who has been
friendly with Bill Parcells since coach-
ing him in a 1963 college all-star game,
had hired Parcells to run his franchise.
The way the Tuna has resurrected the
Dolphins, the Raiders might be con-
tenders in the weak AFC West.
The Dolphins, with Parcells protege
Tony Sparano coaching, are contend-
ing in the much more competitive East,
benefiting from the signing of Chad
Pennington, who was cut loose by the
Jets when they traded for Brett Favre.

Feely's field goal in OT gives Jets 34-31 win

AP Sports Writer

(AP) Brett Favre and the
New York Jets stand alone atop
the tight AFC East standings
- barely.
Jay Feely kicked a 34-yard
field goal on the only series of
overtime after New England
tied the game on Matt Cassel's
pass to Randy Moss with one
second left in regulation and the
Jets survived a Tom Brady-like
comeback with a 34-31 victory
Thursday night.
The win broke a tie for the
division lead between the teams
and gave the Jets (7-3) sole pos-
session of first place for the first
time since Nov. 19, 2001,
according to the Elias Sports
Bureau. The Patriots (6-4) have
won the AFC East the last five
seasons and six of the last seven.
New England "had all the
momentum," said Favre, who
threw two touchdown passes
and directed the winning drive.
"Based on history, you would
have bet against us. This says a
lot about our team."
The Jets, who led 24-6 in the
first half, extended their win-
ning streak to four with their

sixth victory in seven games and
are 1? games ahead of Buffalo
and Miami in the division. They
beat the Patriots for only the
second time in 13 games.
"It's a great, great feeling for
us," Jets coach Eric Mangini
said. "Everybody understands
that this game was extremely
important, and it's important
because it allows us to make the
next game (against Tennessee)
extremely important. It's a real-
ly positive step for our team."
The loss wasted a brilliant
performance by Cassel, whose
first pro start after Brady's sea-
son-ending knee injury in the
opener came in a 19-10 win over
the Jets. Cassel completed 30
of 51 passes for 400 yards, all
career highs, and three touch-
downs. He ran eight times for
62 yards, sixth-most in team his-
tory for a quarterback and the
most since Steve Grogan ran
for 65 in consecutive games in
"It's not enough," Cassel said.
The Patriots got the tying
touchdown on Cassel's 16-yard
pass on fourth down. Moss' div-
ing sideline catch was reviewed
when he was pushed out of
bounds by cornerback Ty Law,
but the touchdown stood.

JAY FEELY (3) is hugged by holder Reggie Hodges (6) after Feely kicked
a field goal in overtime to defeat the Patriots...

New England had marched
to Moss' touchdown from its
38-yard line with no timeouts
and 1:04 left
Stephen Gostkowski's extra
point tied it and erased a 31-24
lead the Jets had taken on
Thomas Jones' 1-yard touch-
down run with 3:10 left.
"I don't know what their
record was in overtime," Mangi-

ni said, "but I'm sure they've
been pretty successful."'
Favre made his 263rd con-
secutive regular-season start, an
NFL record, and'went 26-of-33
for 258 yards and, on th'e 'only
drive of overtimC marched the,
Jets 64 yards on 14 plays in 7:50.
His 16-yard passio Laveranues
Coles brought the ball to the
Patriots' 24-yard line, three run-

ning plays moved it to the 16
and Feely connected for his sec-
ond field goal of the game -
giving Favre his 42nd win in
games his team trailed or were
tied in the fourth quarter..
"I was nervous as heck"
heading into overtime, he said.
"I said, 'Why can't we make this
easy?' But it's what I'm capable
of doing.
"This one ranks right up
there ,near the top" of all his
The. Jets scored on their first
three series, plus a 92-yard kick-
off return by Leon Washington,
four days after scoring on all
seven of their first-half posses-
sions in a 47-3 rout of the St.
Louis Rams.
Washington scored on a 7-
yard pass play before the Patri-
ots cut the lead to 7-3 on their'
first series on the first of
Gostkowski's three field goals, a
Feely kicked a 22-yarder for
the Jets before Gostkowski con-
nected again, from 31 yards to
cap a 12-play drive.
New York needed just one
play Washington's return -
to score on the ensuing kickoff.
It was his first kickoff return for
a touchdown this season after

he tied a team record last year
with three.
And when Favre threw a 15-
yard scoring pass to Jerricho
Cotchery, the Jets led 24-6 with
4:57 left in the first half and the
outlook was.very bleak for the
"We dug ourselves a hole,"
New England coach Bill
Belichick said. "We made some
plays to get back in there."
Cassel threw a 19-yard scor-
ing pass to Jabar Gaffney with
15 seconds left in the half and a
10-yarder to Benjamin Watson
on the final play from scrim-
mage of the third quarter. Then
New England made it 24-21 on
Cassel's 2-point conversion pass
to Gaffney.
"Anytime you can come back
from a 24-6 deficit, it's a build-
ing block," Cassel said. "That
was great for the team."
The Patriots tied it on
Gostkowski's 47-yard field goal
with 10:16 left in the fourth
But they never led and never
got the chance after the Jets
won the overtime coin toss.
"We usually win those type
of games," Patriots defensive
.end Richard Seymour said, "but
there's still a lot of football left."
